US parties flip-flop on experience in White House race

Republicans are facing the most seasoned woman in American politics, Hillary Clinton, in the race for the White HouseBack in 2008, a freshman senator named Barack Obama got savaged for his inexperience. Hillary Clinton's decades-deep curriculum vitae -- US first lady, senator, secretary of state -- contrasts dramatically with three first-term Senate Republicans who have launched White House campaigns but have little national record to stand on. Obama survived a bruising party nomination battle with the more experienced Clinton to become the first sitting senator to win the White House in more than half a century, when voters embraced a young, fresh-faced politician peddling a message of hope and change over veteran Senator John McCain. With Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio borrowing a page out of Obama's playbook, some Republicans who once hailed candidate McCain for his vast knowledge and experience are casting some 2016'ers as ambitious outsiders who could win the White House without Washington baggage.

Film to probe Newark schoolyard murders' toll on family

In this Thursday, April 23, 2015, photo Shalga Hightower, mother of Iofemi Hightower, college student slain in 2007, poses for The Associated Press in the schoolyard where the murder happened in Newark, N.J. In the seven-plus years since her college-bound daughter's brutal slaying along with two friends in a case that became a national symbol of urban gun violence, Hightower has been on a mission. It started with a resolve to attend every court hearing involving the six men and boys eventually convicted for the crime, an odyssey that cost her her job and left her family temporarily homeless. Now, a documentary project is aiming to chronicle her struggles and her efforts on behalf of families of crime victims who are too often left to fend for themselves. (AP Photo/Julio Cortez)NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — For what seemed a small eternity, Shalga Hightower epitomized the picture of parental grief in the aftermath of Newark's 2007 schoolyard killings, when a group of men and boys, including one who turned 15 that day, lined up her college-bound daughter and two friends and shot them each in the back of the head.

Oklahoma lethal injection drug faces U.S. Supreme Court test

A police officer walks up the steps of the Supreme Court in WashingtonThe U.S. Supreme Court is set to hear arguments this week on whether a drug used in Oklahoma's lethal injection mix should be banned in a case that comes as a shortage of execution chemicals has sent some states scrambling for alternatives. The main question before the nine justices in the case brought by three death row inmates that will be heard on Wednesday is whether the use of the sedative midazolam violates constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment. The case does not address the constitutionality of the death penalty in general, but brings fresh attention to the debate over whether executions should continue in the United States. Opponents say midazolam is not approved for use in painful surgeries and should not be used in the death chamber because it cannot maintain a coma-like unconsciousness, potentially leaving inmates in intense pain from lethal injection drugs that halt breathing and stop the heart.

By Ross Adkin DHADING, Nepal (Reuters) - Barely any sign of an organized relief effort was visible outside Nepal's capital on Sunday, as aid agencies struggled to fly and truck relief supplies to a country stricken by its worst earthquake in eight decades. In the lush Dhading farming district 80 km (50 miles) outside Kathmandu, people camped in the open, the hospital was overflowing, the power was off and shops were closed. Many people have died," said English teacher Chandra Lama, whose home village lies two hours' drive further west. "We are waiting to see what the government will do." More than 1,100 people - or half of the total confirmed dead in Nepal - were in the Kathmandu Valley, a crossroads of the ancient civilizations of Asia and economic hub of the Himalayan nation of 28 million. -- read full article
