What is Dogecoin?

Dogecoin is one of the most unlikely winners of the internet’s fascination with cryptocurrency.

The crypto was actually created as a joke to parody the wild adoption of different cryptocurrencies, such as Bitcoin. The Dogecoin logo is a cartoon face of a Shiba Inu dog, made popular by the wildly successful “Doge” meme which showed a picture of the dog with text such as “much wow” and “so excite”.

Japan court rules ban on same-sex marriage is allowed

Published

on

There are concerns for equality in Japan after a court ruled a ban on same-sex marriage is not unconstitutional.

It’s a major blow for the country’s gay couples, with Japan remaining the only G-7 member nation not to allow people of the same sex to wed.

This is all despite wide-sweeping opinion polls which show a majority of the public is actually in favour of marriage equality.

Several regions have now begun issuing partnership certificates in an attempt to help impacted couples rent properties together and gain hospital visitation rights.

This most recent case in Osaka was brought forward by three same-sex couples, two male and one female.

Japan’s constitution currently defines marriage as being based on “the mutual consent of both sexes”.

The court found marriage is still defined as being only between opposite genders… noting not enough debate on same-sex marriage has taken place in the country to warrant changing this.

Under current rules, same-sex couples living in Japan are also unable to inherit their partner’s assets, and have no parental rights over their partner’s children.

Why is Prince harrying suing the publishers of the Daily Mail and Mail?

Published

on

Prince Harry is suing Daily papers over an article published in February.

His barrister said the story about a dispute over his family’s security arrangements tried to manipulate public opinion.

But the publisher of Daily Mail said it contained “no hint of impropriety” and was not defamatory.

The story, published in the Mail on Sunday and online, referred to the prince’s separate legal case against the Home Office over security arrangements when he and his family are in the UK.

Prince Harry says it caused him “substantial hurt, embarrassment and distress, which is continuing”.

The prince’s barrister said the article suggested he had “lied in his initial public statements” by claiming to have always been willing to pay for police protection in the UK.
