Image by Daniele Prati, via Flickr Commons Kurt Vonnegut wrote novels, of course, but also short stories, essays, and — briefly, suitably late in his careercorrespondence from the afterlife. He did that last gig in 1998, composing for broadcast on the formidable WNYC , by undergoing a series of what he calledcontrolled near-death experiencesorchestrated, so he claimed, by “Dr. Jack Kevorkian and the facilities of a Huntsville, Texas execution chamber.” These made possible “more than one hundred visits to Heaven and my returning to life to tell the tale,” or rather, to tell the tales of the more permanently deceased with whom he’d sat down for a chat. Vonnegut’s roster of afterlife interviewees included personages he personally admired such as Eugene Debs ( listen ), Isaac Newton ( listen ), and Clarence Darrow ( listen ), as well as historical villains like James Earl Ray ( listen ) and Adolf Hitler ( listen ).

(UNITED NATIONS) More than half a million children in the West African area wracked by Boko Haram extremists are so malnourished their lives could be in danger unless they get aid, a U.N . humanitarian official said Monday, describing a region where millions get by on one meal a day and some communities have lost all their toddlers. Military campaigns have driven Boko Haram from much of the territory it took during a seven-year uprising that killed more than 20, 000 people, displaced over 2 million and shocked the world with the abduction of nearly 300 schoolgirls. But as aid workers got into areas the Islamic militants had controlled, the suffering they left behind became clear in the last six months, said Toby Lanzer, the U.N's humanitarian coordinator for the region.

If only the kittens were extended this same courtesy as they froze that November night before park rangers found them. Unfortunately, these creative sentences can only be handed out to first-time offenders because they’re meant to help those who have strayed from the right path to find their way again. For second, third and beyond offenders, they are often beyond help and cannot be swayed by equal sentencing because their crimes are already so severe. One criminal that Cicconetti oversaw was a young man who threw a puppy out of a window to fall six stories to his death after the puppy peed on his bed. The puppy was found in a trash compactor and traced back to Michael Sutton, who had a record of domestic abuse and misusing firearms, and Cicconetti admitted that Sutton was beyond help. After calling Suttonvicious,” Cicconetti told him, “I’d like to give you one of those creative sentences, but that’s for people who can be rehabilitated, people who are first offenders.

Authorities in Croatia and Hungary are illegally pushing refugee and migrant children back into Serbia, often violently, Save the Children alleged Tuesday. The group estimated that 1,600 such cases 30 incidents per day have taken place in the past two months. Children, some as young as 8 years old, have reported beatings by police and smugglers, dog bites and sleeping outside in subzero weather. Serbia isn't a European Union member state but has become a focal point of the European migrant crisis, since an E.U.-Turkey deal last year aimed at restricting the arrival of migrants by boat, forced many to take a more dangerous route overland through the Balkans. Migrants have been making their way north through Serbia in order to reach E.U. bloc members Hungary and Croatia in the hopes of moving farther west into Europe. Save the Children said that as many as 100 refugees and migrants are arriving in Serbia every day, and in the capital, Belgrade, more than 1,000 people are sleeping rough in a warehouse near the train station in temperatures as low as 5 °F ( -15 ° C).
