- Elton John challenges Russian gay ban from stage
British pop icon Elton John escaped serious criticism in Russia on Saturday after using a sold-out Moscow concert to challenge a highly contentious law banning the "propaganda of homosexuality" to minors. The 66-year-old singer is the first Western star known for fighting gay prejudice to tour Russia since it adopted in June a measure making it illegal to explain same sex relationships to children. John -- openly gay and in a civil partnership with filmmaker David Furnish since 2005 -- performed in Moscow on Friday and is due to play in the heart of the Muslim region of Tatarstan on Saturday night. He had been urged by some gay rights advocates to cancel the concerts as a form of protest against President Vladimir Putin's 13-year rule.

- Federal judge criticized by Supreme Court Justice fires back
By Bernard Vaughan NEW YORK (Reuters) - A federal judge this week defended his custom of urging lead law firms in class actions to staff the lawsuits with women and minority lawyers, two weeks after U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito took the unusual step of criticizing the practice. The judicial dustup stems from the Supreme Court's decision on November 18 not to review a challenge to a class action settlement that resolved antitrust claims against Sirius XM Radio Inc. Though it declined to hear the case, Alito wrote a six-page statement criticizing the practice of Judge Harold Baer, of U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, of encouraging firms that represent plaintiffs in class actions to assign lawyers that reflect the gender and racial makeup of the class. In court orders, Baer has written that the practice is warranted under a federal rule governing the certification of class action lawsuits.
- Lemurs Snooze in Caves Like Early Humans
Some of Madagascar's ring-tailed lemurs head to bed in caves every night, new research finds. The study is the first evidence of modern wild primates sleeping regularly in caves. Early human remains in South Africa have been found in caves, suggesting that although lemurs and humans aren't particularly closely related as far as primates go, there is something in deep primate history that makes caves appealing — possibly protection from predators, said study researcher Michelle Sauther, an anthropologist at the University of Colorado, Boulder. "We think cave-sleeping is something ring-tailed lemurs have been doing for a long time," Sauther said in a statement.

- Jay Z leads with 9 Grammy nominations, but newcomers vie for top honors
By Piya Sinha-Roy LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Rapper Jay Z led all artists with nine Grammy nominations on Friday, but newcomers Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis edged out industry heavyweights for nods in the top categories of the annual music awards. Jay Z picked up nominations in nine categories across pop and rap, including best pop duo performance for "Suit & Tie" with Justin Timberlake, and best rap album for his July release, "Magna Carta...Holy Grail." But the 44-year-old Brooklyn, New York-born rapper failed to land solo nods in the top Grammy categories for record, song, and album of the year, scoring only one as a producer on Lamar's "Good Kid, M.A.A.D City" record, nominated in the album of the year category. Lamar's album will face off against Sara Barielles' "The Blessed Unrest," French electro-dance duo Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories," Taylor Swift's "Red" and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' "The Heist" for album of the year.
