Ohio Loses Appeal, Can't Reject Voters in Wrong Precincts 12 Oct 2012 Ohio was barred from disqualifying provisional ballots cast in the wrong precinct, an appeals court said, upholding an earlier ruling. The U.S. Court of Appeals in Cincinnati issued the ruling yesterday, the second loss in two weeks for the state in election-related lawsuits. A lower-court federal judge in August ruled that provisional ballots, used to record votes when eligibility is an issue, can't be thrown out if they're filed in the wrong precinct as a result of poll-worker error. Opponents of a 2006 law saying they must be discarded argued that the law would unfairly cause the rejection of thousands of votes in the November election.
Polar bears will go extinct within decades, Russian expert predicts --Melting polar sea ice limits habitat and food sources, increases vulnerability 12 Oct 2012 One immediate consequence has been further grief and peril for Russia's already seriously distressed polar bear population. "It is worse for Russian polar bears than the bears in Canada or Greenland because the pack ice is retreating much faster in our waters," said Nikita Ovsyannikov, deputy director of Russia's polar bear reserve on Wrangel Island in the Chukchi Sea to the northwest of Alaska. "The best habitat is quickly disappearing. It is extreme. "What we are seeing right now is very late freezing. Our polar bear population is obviously declining. It used to be that new ice was thick enough for them to walk on in late October. It now will happen much later."
