Surveys consistently indicate a majority of North American adults support capital punishment... under the right circumstances. So if you support it... you should be able to hand out the death penalty.
This week, scientists gathered in Washington, DC for the International Summit on Human Gene Editing to discuss a technology called CRISPR-CAS9, which ...
Even those excited by the possibilities presented by the CRISPR/Cas technology seemed to favor a cautious and well thought out approach to its use in a clinical setting.
I recently returned from a trip to London and while there had time to reflect on many things. We often have great ideas of how the world, employee...
Before I was a criminal defense lawyer, I was a prosecutor. Before I was a prosecutor I was the Senior Adviser for Government Reform for the Majority Conference in New York State Senate (the irony of the title considering the stream of corruption prosecutions and convictions since is not lost on me.)
Irrational! How else can we explain the conducts of Putin, Netanyahu, Maduro, Jammeh, Kim Jong-un, Tsipras and ISIS? But to understand both the lure of "irrational" leaders and ideologies and the troubles of western liberalism, we must grasp people's subjective rationales.
Cheating at business schools of all sizes is widespread, according to a study a few years ago by the Association to Advance College Schools of Business, which accredits 740 of the world's best business schools in 50 countries.

As a writer I've been fascinated by the controversy regarding the discrepancies and potential falsehoods in Ben Carson's biographical writings and speeches. Dr. Carson is hardly the first politician to embellish, misrepresent or fabricate the "truth."

Andrea Eldridge, who runs a computer repair business in Redding, Calif., says the hack shouldn't give either side an unfair advantage. So for her, doing something like clearing her Web browser's cookies -- a strategy that some travelers believe can result in lower airfares -- is on the up-and-up.
What we learn from the bystander effect is that if you are going to be ethical, you sometimes have to rise above cost-benefit analysis. For each individual bystander, the cost benefit approach says not to intervene.
To be sure, there are deep divisions related to some moral and political issues in our time, but if we think of ourselves as allies of the Good, rather than enemies of one another, perhaps we can then carve out enough common ground to work together for the common good.
Our children are capable of great moral bravery, if we give them the chance to exercise it. Put more bluntly: if you're going to turn away refugees seeking asylum, don't do it in the name of my children. I've asked them, and they would not want that.
Many times, public perception perches a white hat firmly atop the heads of prosecutors while painting defense attorneys as black-hatted villains.
There's a well-known phenomenon in churches where young families, many of whom have not been involved in organized religion since before college, retu...
When we hear the term "twins," we often think of two things that are alike -- twin beds, twin turbo engines, etc. However, as the father of twins (who happen to turn ten-years-old today), I can attest to the fact that twins are most certainly quite different from one another.
