    Texas death-row inmate Rodney Reed - a black American man convicted in a racially charged trial - has lived under the threat of execution for two decades. At one point, in March 2015, Reed was set to be executed the day after Al Jazeera spoke to him from behind the plexiglass at a prison in Livingston, Texas. But the execution was stayed, pending a review into his case. In 2014, Reed's lawyers had launched a bid to reopen an investigation into DNA collected at the crime scene that the lawyers said would exonerate him. Texas's judicial authorities had long ignored...

As my travel schedule is heavy, I am republishing some articles about life in Jesus’ day. I hope you will enjoy reading (or re-reading) them as much as I did. The Jewish people took the burial of the dead quite seriously; this was the way a community paid their last dues to the one who had died. The Scriptures laid down quite firmly that no dead...

    LOUDON COUNTY, Tenn. (WVLT) -- A Loudon County father who lost his daughter in a car crash said she would be alive today if it wasn't for the guardrail she hit. The Tennessee Department of Transportation acknowledged the guardrails are unsafe and has started to correct the problem. Hannah Eimers was just 17 years old and had her whole life ahead of her. "She was remarkable," her father Stephen said. "She graduated at the age of 15. She was self-taught German, Russian and American Sign Language." Her life ended last November on Interstate 75 near Niota when her car left...

    My wife called to tell me she was stuck in traffic not far from our home. When she eventually discovered the cause of the highly unusual Saturday midafternoon backup, her heart was filled with sadness. For it was a fatal accident involving a motorcycle and an SUV. The biker was traveling west at “a high rate of speed.,” according to a police report. The Nissan SUV was traveling east. When the SUV turned left, the bike collided with the larger vehicle sending its rider flying through the SUV’s windshield like a projectile. The 28-year-old biker was killed. The 51-year-old husband...

    Doctors in a Canadian intensive care unit have stumbled on a very strange case - when life support was turned off for four terminal patients, one of them showed persistent brain activity even after they were declared clinically dead. For more than 10 minutes after doctors confirmed death through a range of observations, including the absence of a pulse and unreactive pupils, the patient appeared to experience the same kind of brain waves (delta wave bursts) we get during deep sleep. And it's an entirely different phenomenon to the sudden 'death wave' that's been observed in rats following decapitation. "In...

    A rare bacterial disease linked to rats — and normally only seen in animals — has killed one person in the Bronx and left two others fighting for their lives, city officials reported Tuesday. The three cases of leptospirosis were identified within a one-block radius of the Concourse section of the borough over the past two months, the Health Department said. “Human leptospirosis cases are very rare in New York City,” explained Demetre Daskalakis, acting deputy commissioner of the Health Department. “This is the first time a cluster of cases has been identified,” he said. “All three cases had severe...

    Accused Florida airport gunman Esteban Santiago had his guns seized twice by authorities before the Jan. 6 massacre, including a reported confiscation four years ago in Puerto Rico – but on both occasions investigations were closed and Santiago’s guns were returned to him. Santiago, 26, had a gun or guns taken by Penuelas police in Puerto Rico more than four years ago, The Florida Sun-Sentinel reported on Friday, though the reason for the action wasn’t immediately clear. “It had to be some kind of complaint,” police press officer Edward Ramirez said.

I have been trying to buy some property from a gentleman who ended up in a nursing home with Medicaid coverage. His widow said she had to sign papers and was not allowed to sell or even rent the property.
