presstv-us court rejects district maps in n carolina

The US Supreme Court has rejected two congressional district maps in the state of North Carolina, saying Republican legislators illegally used race to draw up the boundaries. The top court ruled on Monday that the maps for two of the North Carolina’s 13 congressional districts were predominantly racial and the state had failed to offer a compelling justification.The court stated that the redrawn electoral boundaries had deliberately targeted minority voters to diminish their political power, arguing that Republicans who controlled the state legislature and governor office in 2011 placed too many African-Americans in two districts with the aim to dilute the strength of voters.Calling the move "a watershed moment in the fight to end racial gerrymandering," former attorney general Eric Holder

presstv-ruling confirms anti-hispanic bias by texas reps.

A panel of federal judges in the US state of Texas have ruled that the state’s legislature had violated Section 2 of the Voting Rights Act by intentionally drawing congressional maps that unconstitutionally discriminated against Hispanic voters.In their 2-1 ruling on Friday night, district court judges in the city of San Antonio further ordered the legislature to redraw congressional maps in three Texas districts that were racially gerrymandered by Republicans in efforts to undermined the growing electoral power of minorities.The two judges who ruled in favor of the plaintiffs further found that Republican lawmakers repeatedly tried to dilute the political power of Latino voters by either packing them into one specific district, or dividing communities between separate districts -- a proce

north carolina gop files bill voiding same-sex marriage

Three Republican lawmakers have filed a bill seeking to outlaw same-sex marriage within North Carolina.House Bill 780, otherwise known as the “Uphold Historical Marriage Act," says the United States Supreme Court "overstepped its constitutional bounds" when it negated an amendment of North Carolina's constitution in its 2015 landmark Obergefell v. Hodges case that legalized same-sex marriage nationwide.If passed, North Carolina's new bill would invalidate same-sex marriage, reportedly including marriages that have already been officiated — both in and out of the state — despite the Supreme Court's ruling.The bill's main sponsors are Reps. Larry Pittman, Michael Speciale, and Carl Ford, who in the filed bill cite a 61% affirmative vote for Article 14, Section 6 of the state's constitution t

presstv-german court rejects injunction against facebook

how to use siri with google maps

An old iOS trick once let you directly query Google Maps with Siri, but it's dead now. Instead, use this workaround.As much as I would love to be able to say "Open Boston, Massachusetts in Google Maps," that day is not yet here: Apple currently doesn't offer SiriKit routing for mapping applications.Instead, whenever I query Siri for an address, I get Maps — which isn't always the best source for directions (especially if I need up-to-date traffic data). Back before the Maps app supported Transit directions, you could "hack" Siri to route via Google Maps by saying "Get directions to Boston via transit" — but these days, this command just opens the Maps app's direct Transit directions instead.But there's still a way to open Google Maps with your voice whenever you want to use an alternative

supreme court discusses sex offender's social media ban

Packingham's lawyer David Goldberg argues that the ban covers "vast swaths" of core First Amendment speech, even parts that have nothing to do with preventing child abuse. He agrees that social media ban as a condition of parole is reasonable, but a lifetime ban is a denial of free speech. Goldberg's argument has led to the discussion of whether it's possible to live these days without Facebook or Twitter, especially since numerous politicians use them religiously. "This has become a crucially important channel of political communication," Justice Elena Kagan said. She reasoned that under North Carolina's social media ban "a person couldn't go onto those sites and find out what these members of our government are thinking or saying or doing." The justices also questioned the North Carolina
