Pedestrians walk past signs in favour of same-sex marriages in Dublin on May 21, 2015While many voters in Ireland's referendum on introducing same-sex marriage were strolling around Dublin wearing "Yes" stickers Friday, many "No" voters were quietly keeping it to themselves. The heated campaign has stirred emotions on both sides, with many voters in both camps wary of voicing their standpoint for fear of being dragged into an emotion-fuelled argument. Final opinion polls suggested the "Yes" camp was heading for victory, but campaigners warned against complacency, wary of a large block of 'shy' "No" voters reluctant to disclose their opposition.

Federal Reserve Board Chairwoman Janet Yellen speaks at IMF headquarters in Washington, DC on May 6, 2015Janet Yellen said Friday she expects the Federal Reserve to begin raising interest rates "at some point this year," saying delaying the long-awaited move risks the economy overheating. The comments came two days after minutes of the Fed's policy board made clear that slow economic growth in recent months meant it was not expecting to increase the benchmark Fed funds rate before late July, despite earlier forecasts of a mid-year hike. Yellen said she expects the economy to bounce back from the stall in the first quarter, which she attributed to "transitory" factors like severe weather and labor disputes at West Coast ports.

Tom Araya of Slayer performs at Madison Square Garden in New York City on November 27, 2013Macabre heavy metal giants Slayer have announced a new album to come out on September 11, the band's first since the death of founding member Jeff Hanneman. Slayer, known for intensely dark lyrics, faced a backlash in 2006 over a song about the September 11 attacks entitled "Jihad," which took the point of view of the Al-Qaeda assailants and quoted plot leader Mohammed Atta. "Repentless" is Slayer's first album since 2009 and the first since guitarist Hanneman's death two years ago.
