One Child Policy Enforcer Runs Over Baby!
A Chinese official from Wenzhou, China, crushed a 13-month old baby-boy to death by driving over him after the parents refused to pay a fine for violating China’s one-child policy.
According to AFP, a state official working to enforce China’s one-child policy drove over a 13-month old baby-boy, resulting in the infant’s death.
A news item issued by PhuketNews relates that the official had an argument with the parents as, presumably, they “violated” the one-child policy by refusing to pay a fine. The reports goes on to say that the parents acted “agitated” in response to the official’s request.
The spokesman stated that the parents of the murdered baby were “agitated” as a result of the disagreement with the one-child policy enforcer, after which the official in question drove his car over the baby. PhuketNews however reports that Wenzhou authorities were quick to label the murder as an unfortunate accident.http://www.infowars.com/one-child-pol…

Battle for the Cato Institute
The Koch brothers are suing the Cato Institute in order to gain more control over the governance of the Cato Institute (Source). Because of laws in Kansas, where the Cato Institute is incorporated, the organization is controlled by the shareholders who each own 25 percent of the shares and appoint members of the board.
Charles and David Koch own 50 percent of the stock and are thus able to appoint half of the board members of the Cato Institute. The death of another shareholder - William Niskanen - has lead to his conflict, because his shares were transferred to his widow, which the Koch brothers contend is not allowed because the shares should have been offered for the other shareholders to purchase (Source).
Ed Crane, Cato Institute President, has referred to the lawsuit has a hostile takeover and alleges that the Koch brothers want to turn the institute into another partisan organization like Americans for Prosperity.
Even as someone who is not a libertarian, this interests me. I think the Cato Institute does reputable work on the policy front even if I don’t agree with all of it, because they provide serious, informed critiques of policies from a libertarian perspective, and I would not want to see it turn into another Club for Growth, Americans for Prosperity, etc.
The EU can’t even stop you drinking yourself to death
Readers of academic journal Addiction will have become rampant eurosceptics after perusing a recent article by Rebecca Gordon and Peter Anderson entitled “Science and alcohol policy: a case study of the EU Strategy on Alcohol”. I didn’t know that the EU had a strategy on booze, but the bloc has a habit of launching “strategies” with variable amounts of substance. In this case, the EU Council asked the European Commission to devise a strategy on reducing alcohol-related harm. The Commission published a Communication on the subject in 2006. Is it any good?Although the Communication acknowledges and supports existing interventions which have high evidence for effectiveness, such as enforcing blood alcohol concentration (BAC) limits for drivers, it extensively promotes other interventions which have been shown to be ineffective; for example, recommending education and persuasion strategies as a measure across all its five priority areas.
