Grandmother’s punishment for girl's running death tests death penalty in Ala

Grandmother’s punishment for girl's running death tests death penalty in Ala | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
An Etowah County, Ala., jury on Friday found that Joyce Hardin Garrard murdered her granddaughter, Savannah Hardin, by literally running the 9-year-old to death in the backyard in 2012. Alabama is one of three states – the others are Delaware and Florida – that allow so-called judicial override of jury sentences in order to impose the death penalty. The option is rarely used in Florida and Delaware has abolished the death penalty, making Alabama, where judges are elected, the only state in the union to regularly utilize the option.

U.S. ad campaign points to dangers of dual cigarette/e-cig use

U.S. ad campaign points to dangers of dual cigarette/e-cig use | Archaeology, Culture, Religion and Spirituality | Scoop.it
(Reuters) - The U.S. Centers for Disease Control is launching an ad campaign warning consumers against the dual use of e-cigarettes and regular cigarettes. Nationally, about three in four adult e-cigarette users also smoke cigarettes, the CDC said. "If you only cut down the number of cigarettes you smoke by adding another tobacco product, like e-cigarettes, you still face serious health risks," the CDC said in a statement. "Smokers must quit smoking completely to fully protect their health - even a few cigarettes a day are dangerous." The ads, which will begin running in print publications and radio on Monday, feature a 35-year-old named Kristy who tried using e-cigarettes to quit smoking, but wound up using both products.
