Clerk defies U.S. high court, denies gay marriage licenses

Kentucky Clerk Continues To Deny Same-Sex Marriage LicensesCiting her religious objections, Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has refused to issue any marriage licenses since the Supreme Court in June ruled that same-sex couples had the right to marry under the U.S. Constitution. On Monday the same court rejected Davis' request for an emergency order allowing her to deny marriage licenses to same-sex couples while she appeals a federal judge's order requiring her to issue them. Eight people filed a federal lawsuit against Davis in July challenging her office's policy of not issuing marriage licenses to any couples – gay or straight.

Water will be clean in time for Games: Rio 2016 chief

Rio 2016 Press ConferenceBy Mike Collett LONDON (Reuters) - The water quality at the Olympic sailing venue in Rio de Janeiro is a serious issue but will be resolved by the time the Games begin next year, Rio Organising Committee president Carlos Nuzman said on Tuesday. A scientific report carried out last month said the waters were so contaminated with high levels of bacteria and viruses from human sewage that athletes could become ill and unable to compete at the Games, the first to be held in South America. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) has ordered testing for disease-causing viruses after taking advice from the World Health Organisation, while the International Sailing Federation has said it will carry out its own tests for viruses in Guanabara Bay where the sailing events will be held.
