"For an adult to suggest that, by excluding him from the close-in-age group, Parliament has made the law overbroad is to misunderstand the protective purpose of the law," the Court of Appeal ruled. Court files show the accused in this case was 21 years old when he began a romantic relationship with a 15-year-old girl he had known for several years.

  • Bad Saudi PR fuels riyal devaluation talk

    By Andrew Torchia DUBAI (Reuters) - Speculation that Saudi Arabia could devalue its currency may owe more to a poor public relations effort by Saudi authorities than to the economic pressures on the kingdom. Riyadh has the tools available to protect itself as low oil prices push the current account and budget balances of the world's top crude exporter deep into deficit, senior bankers in Saudi Arabia and the Gulf said. In private conversations with Reuters this week, the bankers - many of whom are in contact with Saudi authorities - said Riyadh may detail a strategy to cope with an era of cheap oil as soon as next month, when the finance ministry presents the 2016 budget plan.

  • Adele Wore Burberry Again Because She’s a Supportive Brit (13 photos)

    When Karl Lagerfeld, the reigning King of Fashion, fat shames you, there’s no better revenge than to step out in some gorgeous outfits. For Adele, who became the target of the Kaiser’s out-of-touch body opinions a few years back, she proved that even people who are “a little roundish” can drop mics both literally in regards to music and figuratively in the sartorial sense. And looking great — and doing even greater things — is like one large metaphorical f** you (to him, all her exes, and anyone else that’s ever doubted her).  The singer, with her album set to debut on November 20 after a three year hiatus (she settled down, had a baby, and spent time gathering source material) has been doing just that, with fashion-forward music videos any designer would give up green juice forever to be a part of, public appearances in sparkly gowns Kate Middleton might eventually wear, and street-chic ensembles that style bloggers will emulate with step-by-step shopping details. From multiple Jenny Packham gowns to statement coats (including one inspired by Mr. Snuffleupagus), the hits don’t stop for Adele at ballads.   Follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest for nonstop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
