World renowned physicist Stephen Hawking has died at the age of 76. He died peacefully at his home in Cambridge in the early hours of Wednesday, his family said. The British scientist was famed for his work with black holes and relativity, and wrote several popular science books including A Brief History of Time. At the age of 22 Prof Hawking was given only a few years to live after being diagnosed with a rare form of motor neurone disease. The illness left him in a wheelchair and largely unable to speak except through a voice synthesiser. In a statement his children, Lucy, Robert and Tim, said: "We are deeply saddened that our beloved father passed away today.

A federal appeals court on Monday ruled that a 1964 civil rights law bans anti-gay workplace discrimination. The decision rebukes the Trump administration -- which had argued against a gay worker in the case -- and hands progressives a win in their strategy to protect LGBT employees with a drumbeat of lawsuits. The dispute hinges on whether Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which bans discrimination on the basis of sex, also bans workplace discrimination due to sexual orientation. The Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit ruled Monday, "We now hold that sexual orientation discrimination constitutes a form of discrimination 'because of ... sex,' in violation of Title VII." In doing so, the court overruled a lower court -- and a precedent from two previous court cases -- and remanded the case to be litigated in light of their reading of Title VII.

In 1991, Mark Pauly and others developed a proposal for George H.W. Bush that also included an individual mandate. While others credit Stanford economist Alain Enthoven with the idea, Enthoven's earliest published reference to an individual mandate was an indirect one in the 1992 Jackson Hole paper.
