Iran Saturday hanged a woman convicted of murdering a former intelligence officer she claimed had tried to sexually assault her, defying international appeals for a stay of execution. Reyhaneh Jabbari, 26, who had been on death row for five years, was put to death at dawn, the official IRNA news agency quoted the Tehran prosecutor's office as saying. The execution drew condemnation from the United States and human rights monitor Amnesty International, which dubbed it "a bloody stain on Iran's human rights record" and "an affront to justice". A message posted on the homepage of a Facebook campaign set up to try to save Jabbari noted the "sad news" of her death, adding the words "Rest in Peace" alongside pictures of her as a young child.

North Korea on Saturday vowed strong action to counter a US attack on its human rights record and issued fresh warnings that the United States was in range of its nuclear weapons. The threat follows a damning UN inquiry into North Korea's human rights record, with the judge who led the investigation urging the world body this week to seek war crimes prosecutions for the regime. Pyongyang said the United States was behind the UN move, with the North's powerful National Defence Commission (NDC) accusing Washington of resorting to "an unprecedented human rights racket" aimed at destroying its sovereignty.

Skateboard Company Declares War On Bullying

Bullying in the United States has taken center stage in recent years with evidence coming to light that youth who are bullied experience increases in mental health issues, negative physical performance, poor school performance, depression, anxiety and changes to eating and sleeping patterns. In contrast, those who bully are more likely to abuse alcohol and drugs, have criminal convictions and engage in other risky behaviors that endanger themselves. Whether bullied or bullying, it is clear that youth who are impacted by these behaviors lack feelings of self worth and self-value that all youth should know. Further, the National Center for Mental Health and Juvenile Justice’s - whose name alone indicates the direct relationship between mental health and incarceration in youth - estimates that up to 70% of youth in the justice system have a diagnosable mental health disorder, and often no support at home. These disorders, lack of resources, low-income households and poor family structure can express themselves in many ways from depression to violence to bullying.

Article by WN.com Correspondent Dallas Darling The recent killings of an unarmed and armed black teenager in Ferguson and St. Louis, Missouri by overzealous police and excessive force exposes how historical and discriminatory processes and institutional racism in the United States continues its deathly march against minorities. It also brings attention to Robert Charles and his fight to the death back in 1900 in the city of New Orleans. Whether young black men have their "Hands up or down!", they are dammed if they do and dammed if they don't. "In any law-abiding community," wrote the anti-lynching crusader Ida Wells-Barnett, "Charles would have been justified in delivering himself up...
