LORD JANNER, who has been accused of child sexual abuse, will face court regardless of whether the decision not to prosecute him is overturned.
An independent QC is examining the decision by Alison Saunders, the director of public prosecutions, not to prosecute Janner over 22 cases of alleged child sexual abuse because he has Alzheimer’s disease and is not fit to stand trial.
But Liz Dux, a lawyer at Slater and Gordon who is representing some of the alleged victims, said they would pursue civil claims against Janner even if the independent review upholds the decision not to prosecute.
ALBANY — Six months after Gov. Andrew Cuomo banned fracking as too hazardous, the federal government released a report Thursday saying there’s no evidence the drilling practice has caused widespread harm to drinking water in the United States.
“Based on available scientific information, we found out that hydraulic fracturing activities in United States are carried out in a way that has not had widespread systemic impact on drinking-water resources,” said Thomas Burke, deputy assistant administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency.
“It is a new lens, so we can all make better decisions about public health.”
The report, issued in draft form after three years of study, cautioned that safeguards are still needed because some drinking water has been contaminated.

Rebecca Kerr, who died of a rare form of leukaemia in January 2011, is one of the teenagers whose parents believe she died as a result of the HPV vaccine.
It prevents infection by the sexually transmitted human papilloma virus which is behind the majority of cervical cancer cases.
Last night her father David, 53, a gas engineer from Essex, said his daughter became unwell within weeks of receiving the second dose of the vaccine just before her 13th birthday.
The teenager, who was studying for her GCSEs at Francis Bardsley School for Girls in Romford, died of lymphoblastic lymphoma a year later.
Mr Kerr said: “It was rare that she ever got poorly and yet she got ill so quickly after having the vaccine. There is no doubt in our minds that there is a link, although the doctors maintain they do not know why children get leukaemia.”

Adam Afriyie, MP for Windsor, had bought the six-storey, grade II* Listed Georgian house in November 2005 for £7.25m, the Times reported. The home is now listed on upmarket estate agent Hathaways for £16.75m.
A critic of the parliamentary expenses system, Mr Afriyie, who is estimated to be worth upwards of £50 million, courted controversy when he told Newsnight in February 2015 that “you can’t expect an MP to scrabble around on a salary of £67,000”.
People like to talk nasty about Hugh Grant, Monsanto’s CEO, and obviously a shareholder. The same goes for Bill Gates. He purportedly owns millions of shares of Monsanto stock as well. But who are the real owners of Monsanto? The answer might be shocking.
The real owners of Monsanto stock are institutions, and people who hide behind those institutions, not individuals like Gates and Grant. According to multiple sources, five investment funds are the top shareholders in Monsanto, with the Vanguard Group, Inc. at the top. You can view the rest below.
