Voters in San Marino, a tiny republic surrounded by Italy, voted Sunday whether to decriminalize abortion, with the Roman Catholic Church firmly opposed and the “yes” camp hoping to make the procedure legal in some circumstances.

Women in San Marino seeking an abortion usually go to neighboring Italy, a similarly Catholic country which legalized the procedure in 1978.

Stock Montage/Getty ImagesIn My Year Off, Robert McCrum wrote in absorbing detail about the consequences of a massive stroke that left him paralyzed on the left side at the age of 42. This acclaimed memoir was followed by a mix of novels and nonfiction, including a magisterial and entertaining life of P.G. Wodehouse.

via VRBOThe Domaine des Salines, Marrakech, Morocco (Vrbo): It can be tough to tread that very fine line between luxury and authenticity when you’re searching for the perfect holiday home. You want digs that embody the historical spirit of a place, but ones with the most modern of conveniences. (Gigantic infinity pools and sauna rooms are considered ordinary features today, right? Good, we assumed so.) But this property on the outskirts of Marrakech manages this balancing act with a chic sensibi
ZUMA Press, Inc. / AlamyWhen I booked my trip to the little town of Eau Claire, Wisconsin, I mostly thought of cheese curds. And beer. The state, fondly known as America’s Dairyland, is famous for these fantastic homegrown products (as well as copious amounts of grassy farmland). However, Eau Claire sets itself apart as an artist incubator with an innovative foodie scene, all set against the backdrop of a Hallmark movie.Eau Claire was a city I wasn’t expecting, especially considering the unevent

Now living in Connecticut, O’Hara had returned to Manhattan to sing—“You’ll Never Walk Alone,” beautifully—at the event marking the 20th anniversa

John Martin/Public DomainIf the hand of God were to reach out and smite people, then it might look a lot like a meteor. Or at least if a meteor was to smite the earth, then people might think that it was the hand of God. This is the argument of a paper published this week in the prestigious science journal Nature. Studying the effects of a meteor that devastated part of Jordan valley some 3,600 years ago, the authors suggest that it was this cosmic event that gave rise to the Sodom and Gomorrah

Will Heath/NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via GettyEven after 40 years, Mario still has a way of eliciting some of the more absurd hoopla in the gaming biz. Nintendo was back at it again this week when, in the midst of announcing the release of new titles, as well as dropping new trailers and retro offerings to their digital marketplace, the Japanese gaming company presented the cast of a brand new animated Mario movie hitting theaters next year.

Angela Rayner has declined to apologise for calling the Conservatives "scum", saying she was using "street language" to convey her "anger and frustration" at the actions of the government. Speaking to Trevor Philips on Sunday on Sky News, Labour's deputy leader said the comments were made "post-watershed as we would say, with a group of activists at an event last night" at the party's annual conference in Brighton. "What I was trying to get across, and it is my passionate way in which I do it, is the anger and frustration that people feel when you have a prime minister, who has said things and not apologised that are racist, that are misogynistic, that are homophobic, that has given billions of pounds of taxpayers' money to their mates and literally wasted that money," Ms Rayner said.
Labour will not nationalise the big six energy companies, leader Sir Keir Starmer has said.

Grant Shapps was speaking on Sky News' Trevor Phillips on Sunday programme as panicked motorists caused lengthy queues at petrol stations for a third day. A shortage of fuel tanker drivers has forced some retailers to shut their pumps and ration sales. As well as appearing to blame the public for the crisis, arguing if people filled their cars as normal there would not be a problem, the cabinet minister also accused a road haulage group of causing the "manufactured situation", claiming it was "desperate to have more European drivers undercutting British salaries".
