Victim was glassed in the neck in street fight
Yorkshire Evening Post - about 3 years
A MAN who stuck a glass bottle in his former brother-in-law’s neck during a family feud has been jailed for four years. A court heard Matthew Hodgson carried out the attack on Billy Wilson in the middle of a street in front of their children. Mr Wilson had to undergo a three-hour operation following the attack. Leeds Crown Court heard the attack happened after a dispute between Hodgson’s partner and Mr Wilson’s new partner on July 11 last year. Andrew Stranex, prosecuting, said one of the women punched the other during the argument. One of the women had been drinking from a bottle at the time. A short time later Hodgson got hold of the bottle, held it by the neck and smashed it on the floor. Hodgson, 28, swore at Mr Wilson before lunging at him with the weapon and stabbing him in the neck with it. Mr Wilson then fell to the floor after Hodgson pulled the bottle away. Hodgson, of Armley Ridge Road, Armley, Leeds, pleaded guilty to wounding with intent. Michael Miller, mitigatin ...

Parental Exposure To Marijuana Linked To Drug Addiction And Compulsive Behavior In Unexposed Progeny
Yahoo News - about 3 years
NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Exposing adolescent rats to THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) -the primary psychoactive ingredient in marijuana--can lead to molecular and behavioral alterations in the next generation of offspring, even though progeny were not directly exposed to the drug, researchers at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai have found. "Our study emphasizes that cannabis [marijuana] affects not just those exposed, but has adverse affects on future generations," said Yasmin Hurd, PhD, the study's senior author, and professor of psychiatry and neuroscience at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. Although marijuana use and safety tends to be discussed in terms of its impact to the individual during the lifetime, few studies have addressed adverse effects in future generations.

Sexual Assault Reports Increase Slightly At Naval Academy: Report
Huffington Post - about 3 years
WASHINGTON -- The number of sexual assaults reported at the Naval Academy increased slightly last year while reports fell at the other service academies, according to an assessment to be released by the Pentagon on Friday. Overall reports at the three academies fell from 80 during the 2011-2012 academic year to 70 in 2012-2013, according to the Annual Report on Sexual Harassment and Violence at the Military Service Academies obtained by The Baltimore Sun. That drop runs counter to the recent militarywide trend of increased reporting -- a trend that officials have said indicates a growing trust in the military justice system. Military officials and advocates for victims alike believe the great majority of assaults remain unreported. The Pentagon has estimated that hundreds of academy cadets and midshipmen experience unwanted sexual contact each year. Amid a drumbeat of such statistics, military leaders are facing growing pressure from Congress and the White House to eliminate ra ...

Georgetown students debate the Religious Right's impact on the GOP
Fox News - over 3 years
By Gabriella Morrongiello Between Pope Francis' rhetoric to the American clergy on matters of public policy and the recent defeat of values-voter style candidate Ken Cuccinelli in the Virginia Governor's race, the Religious Right has been placed under scrutiny anew and some believe a conversation about its impact on the Republican Party is long overdue. At Georgetown University Monday night, Policymic - a news and discussion platform for Millenials -  hoped to initiate that conversation with their first three-on-three debate featuring a panel of Liberal and Conservative Georgetown students joined by professional experts. Debate moderator and Policymic editor Michael Luciano asked the panel to address whether or not they believed the Religious Right has become "an electoral liability for the GOP" given "today's shifting social climate." "I'm here to dare suggest the Religious Right has many positive influences on the GOP," said Christopher Bedford, Associate Editor of The Da ...

Marijuana Compounds Can Kill Some Cancer Cells: Study
Huffington Post - over 3 years
A scientist in the United Kingdom has found that compounds derived from marijuana can kill cancerous cells found in people with leukemia, a form of cancer that is expected to cause an estimated 24,000 deaths in the United States this year. "Cannabinoids have a complex action; it hits a number of important processes that cancers need to survive," study author Dr. Wai Liu, an oncologist at the University of London's St. George medical school, told The Huffington Post. "For that reason, it has really good potential over other drugs that only have one function. I am impressed by its activity profile, and feel it has a great future, especially if used with standard chemotherapies." Liu's study was recently published in the journal Anticancer Research. It was supported by funding from GW Pharmaceuticals, which already makes a cannabis-derived drug used to treat spasticity caused by multiple sclerosis. The study looked at the effects of six different non-psychoactive cannabinoids -- comp ...

Mental Illness Advocates File To Halt Florida Execution

* Execution set for 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT By David Adams MIAMI, Aug 5 (Reuters) - A Florida man who has spent 35 years on Florida's death row for killing eight people, including two teenagers, is scheduled to be executed by lethal injection on Monday pending a last-minute appeal by lawyers claiming that he is insane. John Errol Ferguson, 65, who was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to death in 1978 for a pair of killing sprees, is due to be executed shortly after 6 p.m. EDT (2200 GMT) at Florida State Prison near Starke, Florida. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) filed an amicus brief last week, along with three Florida mental health organizations, asking the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the execution, arguing that Ferguson had a long history of severe mental illness. The brief argues that Ferguson's execution would violate the Eighth Amendment to the U.S. Const ...

Military grooming new officers for war in cyberspace
Fox News - almost 4 years
The U.S. service academies are ramping up efforts to groom a new breed of cyberspace warriors to confront increasing threats to the nation's military and civilian computer networks that control everything from electrical power grids to the banking system. Students at the Army, Navy and Air Force academies are taking more courses and participating in elaborate cyberwarfare exercises as the military educates a generation of future commanders in the theory and practice of computer warfare. The academies have been training cadets in cyber for more than a decade. But the effort has taken on new urgency amid warnings that hostile nations or organizations might be capable of crippling attacks on critical networks. James Clapper, director of national intelligence, called cyberattack the top threat to national security when he presented the annual Worldwide Threat Assessment to Congress this month. "Threats are more diverse, interconnected, and viral than at any time in history," his r ...

Daniel D. Veniez: You Can't "Modernize" an Act of Faith
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Much of the Catholic world was stunned by the news that Pope Benedict XVI will resign the papacy at the end of this month. Benedict's timing cannot be coincidental. The declaration came a few days before the start of Lent. That is the forty days before Easter that many Christians customarily use to reflect on the suffering and sacrifice of Jesus Christ, as well as his life, death, burial and resurrection. It is also a time of hopeful renewal. The last time a pope resigned voluntarily was 1294 when Celestine V abdicated. Legend has it that the great poet Dante was so incensed that he put the retired pontiff into the antechamber of his Inferno. In the seven hundred years since no other pope has ever taken the name Celestine. On Ash Wednesday, I met for a two-hour discussion with The Most Reverend Michael Miller, Archbishop of Vancouver. Miller is a globally respected papal scholar and author of seven books on topics ranging from the Holy See's teaching on Catholic sch ...

"I Only:" It Means A Lot More Than You Think
Brick Patch - about 4 years
While friends and family at the Jersey Shore were still reeling from the impact of Hurricane Sandy, they sprang into action. Volunteers from across the nation started collecting items to help people devastated by the storm. People without homes. People they'd never even met. Often, they heard the phrase, "I only." But as Debbie Nelson, one of those who rallied friends and communities to help those of us here will tell you, "Every 'I only' is like a penny: put a bunch of them together and they add up." *** Debbie Nelson watched the reports about Hurricane Sandy with concern. The mother from Dallas had one son living in the Belford section of Middletown, and the grandfather of her older children lived in Barnegat. She had been struggling with life circumstances -- after moving to Dallas, where she knew no one, her husband decided he wanted a divorce and left her to figure out what she was going to do next. As the images of the devastation in New Jersey, filled the TV, she ...

Burglars caught red-handed at Leeds electronics firm
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Two burglars have been jailed after they broke into an electronics firm and spent 90 minutes ransacking the premises. Andrew Gregory, 32, and Ashley Varley, 21, were both jailed for two years yesterday over the break-in at Farnells, in the Armley area of Leeds, on August 11 this year. Leeds Crown Court heard the pair, along with another unknown man, broke a window to get into the multi-national company’s premises on Canal Road in the early hours of the morning. All three were wearing masks and gloves and spent 90 minutes going through rooms and searching drawers looking for property to steal. Martin Robertshaw, prosecuting, said the burglars only managed to steal a TV set, a games console and £4.80 from a vending machine. A security guard spotted them on CCTV cameras and contacted police. Gregory and Varley fled but were detained close to the business and were carrying balaclavas and gloves. Varley was also in possession of an envelope which contained the stolen cash. Both men we ...

Ig Nobels honour dead salmon's 'brain activity' in improbable research awards
Guardian (UK) - over 4 years
Why you spill coffee if you walk around with a cup and why leaning to the left makes the Eiffel Tower seem smaller When a team of scientists decided to work out the complex mathematics that control the shape and movement of a human ponytail, they had not set their sights on fame or glory. On Thursday, however, the British-American team behind the work were celebrated as this year's laureates for the Ig Nobel prize in physics. They were honoured alongside authors of research into why you spill coffee when walking around with a cup, how brain scans can detect brain activity anywhere (even in dead fish) if you use the right statistical tricks, and why leaning to the left makes the Eiffel Tower seem smaller. The 22nd Ig Nobel awards, organised by the humour magazine Annals of Improbable Research and awarded on Thursday at Harvard University, are a spoof of the Nobel prizes, to be announced next month. They honour achievements that "first make people laugh, and then make them think". R ...

Plot hatched at Leeds bail hostel leads to new jail term
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
A burglar who teamed up with fellow criminals at a bail hostel before breaking into a house has been sent back to jail. A court heard Jordan Rennison, 18, carried out the raid shortly after being released from a young offenders’ institution. He was then placed in a bail hostel in the Woodhouse of Leeds and was “reacquainted” with criminals he had previously known. Leeds Crown Court heard the four members were involved in a burglary at a house on Beechwood Terrace, Burley, Leeds, as three people living at the address were asleep upstairs around midnight on June 12. They climbed in through an unlocked window before stealing credit cards, identity documents, electrical items and the keys to a Mini Cooper, which was parked outside. They drove off in the vehicle which Rennison later crashed, causing £4,000 worth of damage. An off-duty police officer recognised Rennison as he fled. Rennison, of Littlemoor Crescent, Pudsey, Leeds, was arrested the next day. He pleaded guilty to burglary ...

Jane Harris: Top o' the Pile: 17 Writers Share Their Nightstand Reads
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Summer reading lists are as ubiquitous as the inevitable heat, and while I'm always interested in what writers are reading, I find this genre -- if that's the right word -- a bit cheesy. I mean, why assume people only find time to read in the summer, or even promote that idea? Moreover, there's always a tendency for self-conscious deliberation with such surveys, writers knowing that what they say they read will reflect on who they are. Attempts to tart it up with low-brow themes ala "Guilty pleasures for summer" (Time) or "Reading Romance Between (And Under) The Covers" (NPR) only exaggerate the contrivance, in my opinion. As if people are divulging secrets, when its usually a matter of entertainment (or a name-dropping chess game). So my desire here was to get as honest a take as I could by keeping it spontaneous and simple. I Facebooked a bunch of writer and editor "friends," some I actually know, some I don't, and asked them to tell me what was on top of their nightsta ...
