Judge blocks Mississippi law allowing denial of services to LGBT people

A rainbow is seen in the sky behind LGBT pride flags and the U.S. flag in West Hollywood(Reuters) - A day before it was due to come into effect, a federal judge has blocked a Mississippi law permitting those with religious objections to deny wedding services to same-sex couples and impose dress and bathroom restrictions on transgender people. Mississippi is among a handful of southern U.S. states on the front lines of legal battles over equality, privacy and religious freedom after the U.S. Supreme Court last year legalized same-sex marriage. U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves found on Thursday the wide-ranging law adopted this spring unconstitutionally discriminated against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and others who do not share the view that marriage is between a man and a woman.

The 'We Are Not This' slogan is seen posted at the entrance to a pub in Durham, North CarolinaProposed changes to a controversial North Carolina law requiring residents to use public restrooms corresponding to their gender at birth don't go far enough, the National Basketball Association said.

Bond yields sink as central banks head for easier policy

Traders work at their desks in front of the German share price index, DAX board, at the stock exchange in FrankfurtThe prospect of further cuts in interest rates and bond-buying to support a fractured global economy kept stock markets on the up in Europe and Asia on Friday, and drove U.S. and European government bond yields to their lowest in years. Signs that the world's big central banks will go even easier on monetary conditions, extending an era of ultra-low interest rates, have been at the heart of a recovery for stock markets from the chaos caused by Britain's vote to leave the European Union last week. French and Dutch equivalents hit all-time lows and those for others among Europe's struggling southern states were around their lowest in a year.

Exclusive: BP-Exxon impasse blocks renewal of giant Azeri oil deal - sources

ExxonMobil Chairman and CEO Rex Tillerson speaks during the IHS CERAWeek 2015 energy conference in HoustonBy Dmitry Zhdannikov LONDON (Reuters) - U.S. oil major Exxon Mobil and Britain's BP are at loggerheads over a giant oil production deal with Azerbaijan, blocking renewal of what was once called "the contract of the century", three high-level industry sources told Reuters. BP, which operates the Azeri-Chigar-Guneshli (ACG) fields in the Caspian Sea and relies on them for a tenth of its global output, has tentatively agreed terms with the Azeri government on extending the 30-year contract, they said. The result is deadlock in talks over a project that may produce another $100 billion worth of oil at current prices, coming on top of old tensions between Exxon chief executive Rex Tillerson and his BP counterpart Bob Dudley, the sources said.
