Hungarian lawmakers on Monday passed amendments to the country’s constitution, despite warnings from the European Union and the U.S. that the measures could threaten the rule of law and weaken democratic checks and balances.
Parliament, controlled by Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s right-leaning Fidesz alliance, approved the changes—including provisions that allow the court system’s top administrator and prosecutors to choose which judges hear legal [...]

Last week the US Senate took a break from debating the phony cuts known as “sequestration,” for Senator Rand Paul to hold a 13-hour filibuster to force the Obama administration to state whether it believes the President has the right to kill American citizens with drones on US soil.

Officials in Japan have opened Fukushima state’s first beach to swimmers since last year’s nuclear disaster after judging the water to be safe.
About 1,000 people yesterday descended on Nakoso beach, about 40miles south of the Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear plant, where three reactors melted down after the March 11, 2011 earthquake and tsunami.
The opening was celebrated with beach volleyball games and hula dancers from a nearby spa.
The amount of radioactive materials released in the first days of the Fukushima nuclear disaster was almost two and a half times the initial estimate by Japanese safety regulators, the operator of the crippled plant said in a report released on Thursday.
The operator, the Tokyo Electric Power Company, said the meltdowns it believes took place at three reactors at the Fukushima Daiichi plant released about 900,000 terabecquerels of radioactive [...]
