  • Iran bill would scrap nuclear deal over new sanctions

    Updated: 46 min ago

    TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian lawmakers have proposed a bill that would scrap a landmark 2013 interim nuclear agreement if new sanctions are imposed. The state-run IRNA news service on Wednesday quoted lawmaker Hossein Naqavi Hosseini as saying that some 80 out of 290 parliamentarians support the bill. It would still need to be put to a debate, then a vote, and then be approved by a constitutional body. U.S. senators are pushing to impose new sanctions against Iran if a final nuclear accord is not reached by July 6. But President Barack Obama has said that would "all but guarantee" the failure of delicate international negotiations. Western nations have long suspected Iran's nuclear program is secretly aimed at producin

  • Jordan ready to swap inmate for pilot held by Islamic State

    Updated: 1 hr ago

    AMMAN, Jordan (AP) — Jordan is willing to swap an Iraqi woman prisoner involved in a deadly 2005 hotel bombing for a Jordanian pilot captured in December by extremists from the Islamic State group, a government spokesman said Wednesday. Such a swap would run counter to Jordan's hard-line approach toward Islamic militants and to the position of its main ally, the United States, not to negotiate with extremists. An exchange also would set a precedent for negotiating with Islamic State group militants who in the past have not publicly demanded prisoner releases. However, Jordan's government faces domestic pressure to bring the pilot home, while its participation in a U.S.-led military coalition against the Islamic State group

  • GoDaddy Pulls Super Bowl XLIX Puppy Ad After Backlash, Petition

    Published: Wed, Jan 28, 2015

    GoDaddy is once again making headlines for its Super Bowl ads, says Yahoo TV. The Internet domain company is causing a stir with what was supposed to be its 2015 spot, which appears to parody Anheuser-Busch's popular puppy-themed ads for Budweiser. Like the beer maker's highly anticipated "Lost Dog" commercial for Super Bowl XLIX, GoDaddy's 30-second spot features an adorable little pup who loses his way. When he finally makes it home, his owner is thrilled -- because she just sold him online using a website she built with GoDaddy.  Viewers immediately reacted to the commercial online -- and not very well. While some thought the twist ending was funny, others said it made light of puppy mills.
