Costa Rica to regulate IVF after long row

first_imgCosta Rica’s president will issue a decree to finally regulate in vitro fertilization after a long legal battle, he said Wednesday.President Luis Guillermo Solís said his office will issue regulations by September to comply with a regional court ruling by the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.“I am going to take action since I do not want Costa Rica to face sanctions a second time” over failure to comply with the November 2013 ruling, Solis said.See: Inter-American Court of Human Rights demands answers from noncompliant Costa RicaCosta Rica, a mostly Catholic Central American nation that takes pride in its respect for civil liberties, has long been the only country in the Americas that bans the procedure.Costa Rica has a date with the court of Sept. 3 to explain how it is complying with the ruling lifting the ban on the reproductive technology.But its lawmakers, who should normally issue the regulations, will not be able to make the deadline given the still-controversial nature of the procedure, Solís said.In vitro fertilization was banned in Costa Rica in 2000 under pressure from the Catholic Church. Some opposing couples sued the government over the ban.

Buyers Working Quickly to Grab Whats Available

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Buyers Working Quickly to Grab What’s Available Share November 30, 2016 830 Views center_img The latest Pending Home Sales Index from the National Association of Realtors (NAR) showed a slight increase from that of the year prior, rising 1.8 percent. Additionally the index indicated that pending sales grew 0.1 percent from September 2016.In combination with the latest Existing Home Sales and Builder Confidence reports, Stephen Melman, Director of Economic Services at the National Association of Home Builders, says, “These reports are good news for new residential construction as the housing recovery continues to address demand among first-time buyers and broadens across a wider range of markets during the balance of 2016 and into 2017.”In the Pending Home Sales report, Lawrence Yun, NAR Chief Economist, states that homebuyers in October appear to have worked quickly in order to outbid other buyers for the short supply of affordable homes on the market.“Those obtaining a mortgage last month were likely the last group of buyers to lock in a rate near historically low levels now that rates have marched to around 4 percent since the election,” Yun said.The shortage of inventory comes as no surprise, though, according to the report. Yun says this lack of available homes for sale is merging with a time when price growth is still close to three times the pace of wage growth.The report also depicts the the imbalance of supply to demand, with 40 percent of sales in October sold at or above list price.“Low supply has kept prices elevated all year and has put pressure on the budgets of buyers,” says Yun. “With mortgage rates expected to rise into next year and put added strain on affordability, sales expansion will be contingent on more inventory coming onto the market and continued job gains.”Broken down regionally, the index shows that pending home sales compared to the year prior grew 3.9 percent in the Northwest, 1.2 percent in the Midwest, 0.8 percent in the South, and 2.5 percent in the West.“Most of the country last month saw at least a small increase in contract signings and more notably, activity in all four major regions is up from a year ago,” says Yun. “Despite limited listings and steadfast price growth that’s now carried into the fall, buyer demand has remained strong because of the consistently reliable job creation in a majority of metro areas.”To view the full Pending Home Sales Index, click here.

She testified Wednesday she woke up naked in bed with the comedian, believing they’d had sex.Baker-Kinney says she believes Cosby gave her Quaaludes, a now-banned sedative. She says she still blames herself for getting knocked out, telling jurors, “I don’t want to have that guilt and shame.”Cosby is charged with drugging and assaulting a woman at his home in 2004. He says it was consensual.Prosecutors are calling other accusers to the stand to make the case Cosby is a serial predator.Cosby’s lawyers have said Baker-Kinney “voluntarily” took the drug and apologized to him for passing out.___3:45 p.m.Bill Cosby’s lawyers are scrutinizing the 2014 police statement of a woman who reported he drugged and molested her as a 17-year-old decades ago.The police report filed by Chelan Lasha (shuh-LAWN’ LASH’-uh) lacked many of the details she testified about Wednesday at Cosby’s sexual assault retrial.Lasha is one of five additional accusers expected to testify.Lasha says Los Angeles police told her to make her account “as brief as possible,” adding she got the impression officers didn’t believe her.She told jurors she was immobilized and unable to speak after Cosby gave her a blue pill and two shots of amaretto.

She told jurors on Tuesday that Cosby knocked her out with wine and forced her to perform oral sex in Reno, Nevada, in 1984.The women could help prosecutors insulate Constand from the defence’s contention that she’s a “con artist.”Defence lawyer Tom Mesereau said in an opening statement that Constand framed him to score a big payday.The Associated Press doesn’t typically identify people who say they’re victims of sexual assault unless they grant permission, which Constand and Thomas have done.last_img read more

Police officers remanded in trafficking case

first_imgThree police officers and two others were remanded in custody for seven days on Wednesday in Nicosia in connection with people trafficking and corruption.The suspects were arrested and brought before court on Tuesday but after a lengthy hearing, the judge decided to reserve judgement for the next day.The three officers, aged 38, 41, and 31, are accused of receiving bribes to turn a blind eye while serving at passport control at the airport and let through women from third countries who were later employed at a bar in Nicosia.Two other people, the owner of the bar, 36, and a 33-year-old woman, a third country national, were also arrested.All three officers served at the immigration service though one of the was transferred to the attorney-general’s security detail in July.The arrests followed a police raid at the Nicosia bar on August 1 where officers found four women from third countries who were later recognised as victims of trafficking.Police told the court that the women were interviewed between August 2 and September 4 and carried out further investigations and surveillance up until Tuesday when they arrested the suspects.The offences they are accused of were committed between the end of December last year and August.The court heard that police would be interviewing some 50 people in connection with the case, 15 of whom were friends and relatives of the suspects.Defence lawyers objected to the remand request, either arguing that eight days were excessive or that there was little or no evidence against their clients.The court rejected their protestations and granted police a seven-day remand, taking into account that the suspects have already spent one day in detention.  You May LikeWeQuoteUSACalifornia Drivers Had No Idea About This RuleWeQuoteUSAUndoLuxurious YachtsThe 10 Most Expensive Luxury Yachts in The WorldLuxurious YachtsUndoFitness Engage10 Best Vitamins to Take to Stay FitFitness EngageUndo Property owners price themselves out of the marketUndoFrom space heroes to artists: women written out of historyUndoBritish woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
