Lawyer optimistic about Edward Snowden’s future in Russia



Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena speaks to the media after visiting Edward Snowden at Sheremetyevo airport
Edward Snowden the NSA whistleblower, is to remain in limbo at Moscow’s Sheremetyevo airport a while longer after the Russian Federal Migration Service failed to process his documents on time, suggesting that Mr Snowden’s entry to Russia may be more difficult than expected.
Mr Snowden’s Russian lawyer Anatoly Kucherena said the whistleblower’s entry into Russia was delayed only because of the complexity of Mr Snowden’s asylum request. “He has not been refused [entry],” Mr Kucherena said.
“The current situation is not standard for Russia. We have come to the conclusion that we’ll wait a while longer. We hope that the issue will be decided in the coming days,” he said.
According to its website, the migration office takes up to one week to decide whether it will allow a foreign asylum-seeker to enter Russian territory. After that, the service takes up to three months to decide whether it will actually grant the individual asylum.

I want to export gay marriage around the world, says Cameron as he speaks of personal pride at party to celebrate new legislation


Pride party at Number 10: The Prime Minister told a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender reception in Downing Street of his personal pride at legalising gay marriage and vowed to export it around the world
The Prime Minister told a gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender reception in Downing Street of his personal pride at legalising gay marriage.
Addressing an audience that included BBC presenter Clare Balding and her partner, the former newsreader Alice Arnold, Mr Cameron boasted that Britain was now ‘the best place to be gay, lesbian or transgender anywhere in Europe’.
But he risked controversy by suggesting that his ministers should now fan out across the globe to spread gay marriage around the world.
‘I’m personally proud of this,’ he said. ‘I think it’s a really good step. I’ve told the Bill team I’m now going to reassign them because, of course, all over the world people would have been watching this and we’ve set something of an example of how to pass good legislation in good time.
‘Many countries are going to want to copy this. I talk about how we’ve got to export more, so I’m going to export the Bill team. 
'I think they can take it around the world.’
Gay marriage was passed by Parliament despite fierce opposition from some Tory MPs and grassroots members, who were angered by the Prime Minister prioritising the issue over economic problems.
But Mr Cameron signalled that he wants to go further in pressing gay rights. He told the gathering: ‘There’s still a lot more work to be done. 
'There’s work to be done talking to our Commonwealth partners about decriminalising homosexuality in various countries.
‘There’s a lot of work to be done on homophobic bullying in schools, which is still a scourge in our country. There’s a lot of work to be done in terms of hate crimes and how we stop and stamp that out in our society.’
The reception was also attended by gay rights campaigners and senior Tories including International Development Minister Alan Duncan and former prisons minister Crispin Blunt.
Miss Balding, who is set to marry Miss Arnold, said: ‘It was great – a very good speech by the Prime Minister.
‘He said that he had delivered on a promise and he was very proud to have done so.’ 
During the event Mr Cameron, together with his team of ministers behind the legislation, signed a copy of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Act 2013.
He said: ‘I think of young children growing up at school, who might be uncertain about their sexuality, knowing that now, in the highest place in the land – in Parliament – we’ve passed this law that says that marriage is for you, whether you’re gay or whether you’re straight. And that is so important to young people growing up.’

The Top 3 Video Streaming Websites: Top Alternatives to Cable TV

Most people hesitate to have their cable TV subscriptions discontinued because they worry about missing their favorite programs. This should not be a problem, though, as there are a number of alternatives to cable TV subscriptions. Some people watch episodes on YouTube (although a few days old). Others go online and try to find websites offering free live streaming of their favorite TV shows.
Yes, live streaming is the most popular of the alternatives to cable TV. Those who have discovered its wonders swear that it is the most practical substitute to cable TV subscription. Many, however, are still quite confused about what live streaming really has to offer. Knowing what happens when one streams live videos (or audio) will help you understand what live streaming means.
A live stream refers to multimedia (like a video) that is delivered continuously to you through a web server. Even if the video is still being delivered to your computer, you can already see its content. And you do not have to download the whole content just so you can watch it. You can immediately play the video or audio.
In order to watch your favorite shows via live streaming websites, you will need to have a good and steady internet connection. Additionally, you should also have a stand-alone player or a plug-in for your Web browser. You'll find sites online that will allow you to download a player for free. You'll even be able to choose from among the most popular: Adobe Flash Player, Apple's QuickTime, Microsoft Windows Media, and RealPlayer. Make sure that the video codex in your PC or Mac is up-to-date so that you can play any video format.
The next step is to find a good video streaming website. There are a lot of these sites, so you should take some time to study your options. You may have heard of Hulu, Netflix and Ubuntu. These are just three of the most popular streaming sites. Find out which one will work best for you:
• Hulu - this live streaming website allows you to watch full-feature movies and music videos in addition to your favorite TV shows. You will need Adobe Flash Player in order to stream videos from Hulu. After you open the website, you'll find embedded video players. Choose the one that features the TV program or movie you want to watch. Live streaming from Hulu is made free courtesy of short advertisements that appear on the videos from time-to-time.
• Netflix - considered the leader in the Internet television network industry, Netflix is used by millions of viewers from different countries. Its Watch Instantly feature allows you to view your favorite shows and movies no matter where you are, as long as you are connected to the Internet. The first thing that you need to do is prepare your Netflix-ready device and connect it to your TV. Check your wireless Internet access and make sure it is good. After you open the Netflix application, your device will display a set of instructions that you need to follow in order to get the access code you need. Once you get the code, launch the Netflix website and enter the code. In a matter of minutes, you will be able to sit back, relax and enjoy your favorite TV program or movie.
• Ubuntu - while it is primarily known as an operating system, many are also aware that it offers a wealth of applications (for free) that aim to bring the computer experience a notch higher. Ubuntu TV has a built-in box office which makes it easy for you to find the TV show or movie you want to watch. All that you will need is your TV and you'll be able to enjoy a variety of entertainment: TV (live and online), movies and even personal videos. Your video player should be either the Adobe Flash Player or the RealPlayer. Once your web browser is open, simply type in the URL of the video you want to view, click on the play button once the video player is displayed, and you're ready to go!
If live video streaming is not for you, there are other alternatives to cable TV you can choose from. YouTube features videos of every kind, so you might just find what you are looking for there. You can also visit network websites and watch old episodes of your favorite TV shows. Or you can go the old-fashioned way and buy an antenna. It may not be a modern option, but it can deliver the free shows you want. And it is way cheaper than your cable TV subscription, too!

Three Dead As Forces Fire On Pro-Mursi Protests In Cairo















Security forces shot dead at least three supporters of deposed Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi on Friday as a crowd of hundreds tried to march towards the military barracks in Cairo where he is being held by the military that overthrew him.
Thousands of Mursi supporters demonstrated in cities across the country on what his Muslim Brotherhood called a “Friday of rage” against what they describe as a military coup that toppled Egypt’s first elected leader a year after he took office.
A witness told Reuters he saw several people fall to the ground, wounded by shotgun pellets. Security sources told Reuters at least three demonstrators were killed when security forces opened fire.
Thousands of Islamists also took to the streets of Alexandria and Assiut to protest against the army’s ouster of Mursi and reject a planned interim government backed by their liberal opponents.
In the Suez city of Ismailia, soldiers fired into the air as Mursi supporters tried to break into the governor’s office. The Islamists retreated and there were no casualties, security sources said.
Egypt’s liberal coalition issued an “urgent call” for its supporters to take to the streets in response to Islamist protests, raising the risk of clashes between the rival groups.
In Damanhour, capital of the Beheira province in the Nile Delta, 21 people were wounded in violence between the factions.
