One key piece of the order, officials said, will allow many parents of children who are American citizens or legal residents to obtain legal work documents and no longer worry about being discovered, separated from their families and sent away.

Governments agree on new protections for polar bears

November 11, 2014 by legitgov

Governments agree on new protections for polar bears 10 Nov 2014 Polar bears are among 31 species approved for greater protections by more than 100 countries, in a move hailed by conservationists as an important step to saving the endangered mammal. The Convention on Migratory Species conference in Ecuador closed on Sunday, with new listings for a whale capable of the world’s deepest ocean dives, and 21 shark, ray and sawfish. The Norwegian proposal to protect the estimated 20,000-25,000 remaining polar bears, which are threatened by melting ice [global warming], Arctic oil exploration and hunting, saw the species gain an Appendix II listing. That means countries must work together to put in place conservation plans, as opposed to the stronger Appendix I listing which requires strict protections such as bans on killing an animal.

Great News for the Web: Obama Urges FCC to Uphold Net Neutrality 10 Nov 2014 President Barack Obama has called on the Federal Communications Commission to lay down "the strongest possible rules" to protect net neutrality, saying that internet service providers should not be allowed to pick winners and losers in the online marketplace. On Monday...the White House released a statement and video from President Obama that aims to reclassify internet service as a utility under Title II of the 1934 Telecommunications Act and push the FCC back toward rules that would prevent ISPs from restricting best access to what you can do and see online. If the FCC reclassifies internet service as a utility under Title II, internet service would become something akin to telephone service, electricity, or water.

Police put out the flames and enforced fencing designed to keep the protesters away from the National Palace, which was built for Hernan Cortes after the Spanish conquest and now houses Mexico's finance ministry.
