America and Its Fellow Executioners
JAN. 9, 2016
The New York Times
By THE EDITORIAL BOARD
Aside from the barbarism and injustice of Saudi Arabia’s execution of 47 men on Jan. 2, the state-sponsored killings — some by beheading — bucked a strong trend against capital punishment in most of the world. According to the annual report of Amnesty International, executions were carried out in 22 countries in 2014, the year covered; there were 25 in 2004. The total number of people known to have been executed also fell. To its disgrace, the United States was still among the five countries that most often used capital punishment — alongside China, Saudi Arabia, Iran and Iraq — but the number of executions in America continued to decline.
How to Get Business to Pay Its Share
May 3, 2012
JAMES MADISON never played with an iPhone, but he might have had something to say about the news last weekend about Apple. Over the last few years, the company has avoided paying billions of dollars in state and federal taxes by routing profits through subsidiaries based in tax havens from Reno, Nev., to the Caribbean.
How to Get Business to Pay Its Share,
US scientists have taught a monkey to feed itself using a robotic arm and the power of thought.
The experiment, revealed last night at a meeting of neuroscientists in San Diego, offers hope to people with spinal cord injuries.
A team from the University of Pittsburgh restrained the arms of a monkey and wired a neural prosthesis - a robot arm with a mobile shoulder, elbow and griping device - into its brain.
The arm intercepted signals from electrodes attached to probes in the nerve
cells of the motor cortex, the brain region that controls movement.
Internet is a victim of its own success
It is the news that internet users do not want to hear:
the worldwide web is in danger of collapsing around us.

The sky seems a little lower this morning;
a cathedral without a spire, a mountain without wolves.
Yesterday Concorde, the Anglo-French sky goddess,
drooped her nose for the last time in commercial flight,

The sight of Amrozi bin Nurhasyim,

raising his arms in triumph
as his death sentence

Throughout his trial,
Amrozi betrayed no glimmer of remorse

'You're not going out dressed like that!'
Which of us has not heard this outraged bellow in our day?
However, two things made it quite bearable;
a) it came from our parents, bless 'em,
who really did want the best for us despite it all,
and b) it stopped when we were sweet sixteen.
Spare a thought, then, for Kylie Minogue and Britney Spears,
who are presently hearing this censorious nonsense
from a complete stranger - one Jim O'Neill,
chairman of the Professional Association of Teachers -
despite the fact that they are, respectively,
in their mid-30s and early 20s.
It's their fault, apparently,
that 10-year-old girls are turning up for class
wearing "totally inappropriate" and "skimpy" clothes.
