Arkansas buys lethal injection drugs, aims to end execution hiatus

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/13/2015 - 07:15
By Steve Barnes LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (Reuters) - Arkansas has bought drugs it plans to use for lethal injections, officials said on Wednesday, as it looks to end a decade-long hiatus on executions that is the longest of any Southern U.S. state.

Music boosts recovery from surgery, reduces pain

Yahoo! Music News - Thu, 08/13/2015 - 07:10

After reviewing evidence from around 7,000 patients, the scientists said people going for surgery should be allowed to choose the music they'd like to hear to maximize the benefit. "Music is a non-invasive, safe, cheap intervention that should be available to everyone undergoing surgery," said Catherine Meads from Brunel University, who co-led the research.
