    On Saturday, the Washington Post revealed further details on a scheme investing in the pending deaths of terminally ill patients which attracted the capital of Virginia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Terry McAuliffe. Earlier this month, Breitbart News reported that McAuliffe admitted he was a "passive investor" in an investment fund organized by his friend and donor, Joseph Caramadre, that preyed on terminally ill patients. Caramadre's fund would pay terminally ill patients a small amount of cash before their death and, at the same time, would purchase life insurance policies on them. When the patient died, Caramadre and his investors reaped huge...

    The severe shortage of viable organs for transplantation in the U.S. has led a transplant surgeon to propose harvesting kidneys from people who are not dead yet. Dr. Paul Morrissey, an associate professor of surgery at Brown University's Alpert Medical School, wrote in The American Journal of Bioethics that the protocol known as donation after cardiac death -- meaning death as a result of irreversible damage to the cardiovascular system -- has increased the number of organs available for transplant, but has a number of limitations, including the need to wait until the heart stops. Because of the waiting time,...

    Frankenstein Video Game by: Deborah Lambert, January 30, 2008 Although most parents would disagree with the emphasis their offspring place on video games, Nicola Groom of Reuters recently reported that a professor at the U. Of Southern California has devised a procedure for integrating “educational role-playing games into the classroom.” Prof. Doug Thomas is “developing a game for students ages 10-12 that aims to teach ideas and skills not found in traditional textbooks.” His game, Modern Prometheus, uses the story of Frankenstein to teach “ethical decision-making” by having the player “assume the role of Dr. Frankenstein’ assistant, who is forced...

    The mother of a U.S. Marine was grieving for her dead son when she found that his savings account had been claimed by the director of the funeral home. It was money that he had no right to and despite a court ruling, the funeral director refused to pay. What's even more puzzling is that he's not just any debtor, he's the mayor of the small town and a member of a City Council that has financial responsibility for the city's budget. 7NEWS also found that he has other debts as well, something his constituents may want to know.
