Ninth Circuit Appeals Judge Alex Kozinski, in an interview with CBS News’ “60 Minutes” set to air Sunday, said conducting lethal injections is a sham that masks that fact that people are getting killed. “The use of lethal injection is the way of lying to ourselves, to make it look like executions are peaceful, benign ... like going to sleep,” said Kozinski, who isn’t involved in the Arkansas proceedings. “And they’re not.

But maybe not for much longer. Another tribe, the Ho-Chunk Nation, is expanding its nearby casino into a full-fledged resort that would rival the Stockbridge-Munsee´s own casino, threatening the gambling revenue that supports services like Putnam-Schiel´s helpers. The Ho-Chunk say they´re simply trying to provide for their own people. <b>(Please follow posting rules)</b> Now CNN host Alisyn Camerota claims she was sexually harassed by Roger Ailes and was told to meet him at a hotel if she wanted to ´further her career´ Sun, 23 40 2017 11:40:37 GMT 23f1846b23773746fbd180fa03759a74a4c604f9 Daily Mail (UK), by Chris Spargo Posted By: JoniTx- Sun, 23 40 2017 11:40:37 GMT Fox News may have sent former CEO Roger Ailes packing in July of last year, but that has not slowed down the female employees at the network who have come forward alleging that they were sexually harassed by the disgraced executive.

Differential access to safe neighborhoods with good schools, decent jobs and unbalanced treatment by police and the courts surely have much to do with the stubborn disparities in wealth and well'being among blacks and whites, in particular. Yet it may be just as important to consider what happens when we’re asleep. Race shapes our sleep, a relationship that has surprising roots deep in our national past.

Slate wrote that Murthy had been well'known as an Obamacare supporter and advocate of gun control, saying that “gun violence [is] a public health issue.” Afterward, a hubbub ensued over the resulting advancement of Deputy Surgeon General Rear Adm.
