É.-U.: la discrimination positive à l’université validée

Agence France-Presse WASHINGTON Une cour d’appel fédérale américaine a validé jeudi le principe de la discrimination positive à l’université, un an après avoir été chargée de cette question sensible par la Cour suprême. En juin 2013, la plus haute Cour du pays avait donné une victoire partielle – mais temporaire – à une étudiante blanche qui s’était plainte d’avoir été refusée en raison de la couleur de sa peau à l’université du Texas. Elle avait renvoyé toute l’affaire devant une cour d’appel fédérale, lui demandant de revoir sa copie. La Cour d’appel du 5e circuit a confirmé jeudi sa première…

Germany ‘may revert to typewriters’ to counter hi-tech espionage

German politicians are considering a return to using manual typewriters for sensitive documents in the wake of the US surveillance scandal. The head of the Bundestag’s parliamentary inquiry into NSA activity inGermany said in an interview with the Morgenmagazin TV programme that he and his colleagues were seriously thinking of ditching email completely. Asked “Are you considering typewriters” by the interviewer on Monday night, the Christian Democrat politican Patrick Sensburg said: “As a matter of fact, we have – and not electronic models either”. “Really?” the surprised interviewer checked. “Yes, no joke,” Sensburg responded. “Unlike other inquiry committees, we are investigating an ongoing situation.

Court backs Texas affirmative action

A federal appeals court panel ruled that it could use so-called affirmative action as a way of promoting diversity. Last year, the US Supreme Court sent the issue back to lower courts for further review. In a 2-1 ruling, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the case of a white student denied a place at the Austin, Texas, university in 2008. Abigail Fisher said the policy of considering her race violated her civil and constitutional rights. But the judges found that barring the university from using race would negatively affect the diversity of the campus, which would be…

U.S. says deportation of Honduran children a warning to illegal migrants

(Reuters) – The White House said on Tuesday that Central Americans trying to cross the U.S. border should know “they will not be welcome to this country,” a day after the United States deported a planeload of women and children to Honduras. A charter flight on Monday from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, transported 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys between the ages of 18 months and 15 years. White House spokesman Josh Earnest said the return of the Hondurans should be a clear…
