    Australia’s new conservative government introduced legislation that would eliminate the carbon tax and cut funding to green energy in a series of aggressive moves to scale back the country’s environmental laws. “We have said what we mean, and will do what we say. The carbon tax goes,” Prime Minister Abbott told Australian lawmakers. “Repealing the carbon tax should be the first economic reform of this parliament.”

The vote is a victory for supporters, who have been pushing the measure for a decade. But it may not get very far in the Senate because majority Republicans oppose it. Backers say a majority of state residents want a broad workplace smoking ban, and point to the harmful effects of secondhand smoke on employees and patrons. Opponents say...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Bush (news - web sites) on Thursday signed into law an act that would make it a separate federal crime to harm a pregnant woman's fetus, in a move likely to bolster his support with conservatives in an election-year. Bush gave his approval at a White House signing ceremony to the "Unborn Victims of Violence Act" which was passed by the U.S. Senate a week ago by a vote of 61-38. The measure has stirred controversy because abortion-rights supporters say it may open the door to an erosion of reproductive rights by assigning a separate legal...

    BOSTON – Now that Massachusetts' highest court has declared that gay couples have the right to marry under the state constitution, the political debate begins over how the Legislature should react. In its 4-3 decision, the Supreme Judicial Court gave the Legislature 180 days to rewrite the state's marriage laws for the benefit of gay couples. "We declare that barring an individual from the protections, benefits, and obligations of civil marriage solely because that person would marry a person of the same sex violates the Massachusetts Constitution," Chief Justice Margaret Marshall wrote.

    More than 2,500 casualties in Iraq. Some 2.5 million jobs lost. Nearly half a trillion dollars in federal budget deficits. And George W. Bush could still be a solid bet to win reelection next year. The day-to-day news about violence in Iraq and lingering economic worries at home obscure a fundamental reality about next year's election: Historically speaking, it should belong to President Bush. Since the presidential primary system became influential in 1952, an incumbent president has never lost a reelection bid if he did not face significant opposition in the primaries. This is no nugget of political trivia. Political...

Tomomasa Nakagawa is the tenth member of the Aum Supreme Truth cult to receive the death penalty. Nakagawa bowed to the judge after the verdict was handed down. The court ruled that the 41-year-old played a "key role" in releasing sarin gas in the Tokyo subway system in 1995. The attack killed 12 people and injured thousands. The trials stemming from the incident will soon reach a climax. Shoko Asahara, the leader of the cult,...

    Nine million strong, the highly volatile college-student population is up for grabs in the race for the presidency in 2004. According to a poll released Wednesday by Harvard University's Institute of Politics, college students generally are supportive of President Bush, and they lean slightly Republican in political persuasion - a contrast to the commonly held stereotype of radical campus liberals. But while 46 percent of students agree that the country is on the right track, they remain politically conflicted. In the past year, their trust in the president declined as concerns grew about Iraq. They aren't oblivious to the world...

This decision by the YWCA National Coordinating Board (NCB) comes after months of pressure by right-wing groups such as the Traditional Values Coalition. The so-called Traditional Values Coalition went so far as to write Secretary of Health and Human Services Tommy Thompson, asking him to review $114 million in federal grants to YWCA organizations. The group also urged its members to ask their legislators to restrict funding to the organization, which, through its 302 local YWCAs, provides child care, domestic violence services, employment training, and other programs...
