Here's what I've been reading up on this morning: 

  • Amnesty's annual death penalty report is out; the US remains the only country in the Americas that executes people, and is fourth on the worldwide executors list. 
  • Not sure I can take Nate Silver seriously anymore after reading this
  • Thanks to federal public funding, Chad Trujillo observes a planet on the edges of our solar system--80 AU away in the Oort cloud.
