although plan faces multiple legal hurdles, no other state has executed that many people so quickly since the us reauthorised death penalty in 1976little rock, arkansas: arkansas governor asa hutchinson comes across as a reluctant figure just carrying out the duties of his office when he discusses his extraordinary plan to execute eight inmates in 11 days.although the plan faces multiple legal hurdles, no other state has executed that many people so quickly since the us supreme court reauthorised the death penalty in 1976, and it has thrust hutchinson and his solidly republican state into the centre of the debate over capital punishment.it’s an unusual position for hutchinson, a low-key former prosecutor who delves into policy issues with the help of charts and graphs and isn’t known f...

more cities offering to pay legal defense for illegal immigrants


sacramento became the latest city this week to go above and beyond ‘sanctuary’ policies by approving the use of taxpayer dollars to support the legal defense of illegal immigrants facing deportation.the city council voted unanimously thursday night to draw $300,000 from the general fund to “provide urgent legal and support services to sacramento families facing the immediate threat of separation due to deportation.”  the plan, backed by the mayor, fits a trend of local and state lawmakers taking similar action. as the trump administration separately faces a court setback in its bid to cut off federal funds to sanctuary cities, those jurisdictions are only doubling down. earlier in the week, officials in michigan's washtenaw county gave initial approval to pay such legal bills w...

for humans, the appeal of looking at faces starts before birth


fascination with faces is nature, not nurture, suggests a new study of third-trimester fetuses.scientists have long known that babies like looking at faces more than other objects. but research published online june 8 in current biologyoffers evidence that this preference develops before birth. in the first-ever study of prenatal visual perception, fetuses were more likely to move their heads to track facelike configurations of light projected into the womb than nonfacelike shapes.past research has shown that newborns pay special attention to faces, even if a “face” is stripped down to its bare essentials — for instance, a triangle of three dots: two up top for eyes, one below for a mouth or nose. this preoccupation with faces is considered crucial to social development.“the basic ...

i, like noel conway, am going to die. why can't i do it on my own terms?


yesterday, a judgment was handed down on a legal case i have been following very closely. it was brought by noel conway, a 67-year-old man who is dying of motor neurone disease. he faces unimaginable suffering in his final months as his illness continues to rob him of the ability to move, speak and breathe. noel wants the right to determine when and how he dies, rather than endure this nightmare right to the bitter end. he is challenging the current law which bans assisted dying and forces him to suffer. i attended his hearing at the royal courts of justice in july. he was too ill to make it there himself.to my deep disappointment, the news came yesterday that the high court has rejected his case. the fight is not over yet, however. noel and his legal team are assessing their options for a
