Supreme Court snubs challenge to death penalty constitutionality

Supreme Court snubs challenge to death penalty constitutionality Liberal Justice Stephen Breyer objected to the court's decision not to hear the appeal by Marcus Reed, a drug dealer convicted in the 2010 shooting deaths of the three brothers, including a 13-year-old, over the theft of marijuana and an Xbox videogame console from his home. The court's action came at a time of deep divisions among the eight justices over the death penalty, with Breyer and other liberals expressing doubt about whether capital punishment remains acceptable under the U.S. Constitution four decades after the court reinstated it. Breyer, renewing his concerns over how the death penalty is administered in America, noted that Reed was sentenced to death in Louisiana's Caddo Parish, a county that he said has apparently sentenced more people to death per capita than any other county in the United States in recent history.

Brie Larson, like everyone else, didn't seem thrilled with Casey Affleck's Oscar win

Brie Larson, like everyone else, didn't seem thrilled with Casey Affleck's Oscar win As 2016's Best Actress winner, Brie Larson was tasked with presenting the award for Best Actor at the 2017 Academy Awards. On Sunday night, that award went to Casey Affleck for his role in Manchester By the Sea, despite the allegations of sexual harassment against him. And like the rest of the internet, Larson did not seem pleased.

The actor settled both cases out of court.  Although similar allegations against Nate Parker became the major talking point surrounding his film The Birth of a Nation, Affleck's Oscar win shows that the lawsuits have left his his career largely unscathed. Larson — who portrayed a sexual assault survivor in 2015's Room and who stood to hug the survivors who performed with Lady Gaga at last year's show — doesn't seem to be here for it.  All award season Brie Larson, who starred in a movie about sexual assault, had to present Casey Affleck all his awards. pic.twitter.com/L2WbQvSJNv — Marnie (@ChrnclsOfMarnia) February 27, 2017 at what time is brie larson scheduled to beat up casey affleck — ASYA (@communistbabe) February 27, 2017 brie larson everytime she sees casey affleck pic.twitter.com/nkQCta9JxZ — chiara (@chapmns) February 27, 2017 BONUS: Despite the most awkward moment in Oscars history, ‘Moonlight’s’ Best Picture award is what matters most.

Buoyed centrist alliance, Macron seen beating Le Pen in French runoff

Buoyed centrist alliance, Macron seen beating Le Pen in French runoff French independent candidate Emmanuel Macron would easily beat far-right leader Marine Le Pen in the second round of the country's presidential election in May, two opinion polls showed on Sunday. The pollsters said Macron has been buoyed by the alliance announced this week with centrist politician Francois Bayrou, which has enabled him to move ahead of conservative candidate Francois Fillon. A poll by Odoxa/Dentsu-Consulting showed 39-year-old Macron, a former economy minister running without the support of any traditional political party, would beat Le Pen in the runoff with 61 percent of the vote, versus 39 percent for her.


Democrats must overhaul party, attack big business, Sanders says

Democrats must overhaul party, attack big business, Sanders says By Lucia Mutikani and Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Former U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Sunday urged a major overhaul of his party, calling for more aggressive efforts to court working-class voters and fight big businesses from Wall Street to the pharmaceutical sector. Sanders, who spoke a day after Democrats chose Tom Perez, a veteran of former President Barack Obama's administration, as their new party chairman, said it was also crucial for progressives to do more to mobilize grassroots supporters to take on Republican President Donald Trump. "We need a total transformation," the 75-year-old U.S. senator from Vermont said on CNN's "State of the Union." "We need to open up the party to working people, to young people and make it crystal clear that the Democratic Party is going to take on Wall Street, it's going to take on the greed of the pharmaceutical industry, it's going to take on corporate America that is shutting down plants in this country and moving our jobs abroad," he added.


Official Samsung teaser confirms the Galaxy S8 will launch March 29th

Official Samsung teaser confirms the Galaxy S8 will launch March 29th In an otherwise tablet-dominated press release in Barcelona, Samsung found 15 seconds to tease its next big smartphone for all of us. As expected, we're going to have to wait a month longer for the Galaxy S8 launch, but it could well be worth it. A Samsung invite sent out confirms that the launch event is going to happen in New York City on March 29th. Until then, this teaser trailer is all we've got to go on. https://twitter.com/SamMobiles/status/835927473896435713 The teaser takes us through the history of the cellphone, beginning in the 1980s. It's a showcase of design, decade-by-decade, with the oh-so-subtle hint being that the Galaxy S8 is going to dominate 2017. If we're really reading into it, the teaser also seems to confirm that there will be very little bezel on the side, no physical home buttons (or buttons of any kind), and some kind of symmetrical bezel top and bottom. That lines up pretty well with what the rumors have suggested so far. One thing we're still completely in the dark about is the number of devices that Samsung is going to reveal. We're expecting to see the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8+ at this event, but Samsung has only hinted at the one device so far. https://youtu.be/Ozng2cTF8_0
