Ohio Parole Board Denies Clemency for Convicted Killer

The state parole board has voted 11-1 to recommend Gov. John Kasich deny clemency to Alva Campbell Jr ., the next inmate scheduled to be executed in Ohio. The recommendation follows the clemency hearing for Campbell last week. Public defender David Stebbins told the parole board Campbell’s upbringing included some of the worst abuse he’s ever heard, and that the defense didn’t fully present that to the jury. “These gaps were filled with inaccurate narratives that were used to justify Alva’s deat...

Dark Souls 3: FromSoftware should never have gone back (ars technica)

This story was written by Rich Stanton. Note: This article contains story spoilers for Dark Souls, Dark Souls II, and Dark Souls III. Games criticism has its weakness for auteur theory, and many, myself included, are guilty of crediting individuals for work done by teams of dozens, if not hundreds of people. Hidetaka Miyazaki—director of Dark Souls III, Demon's Souls, Dark Souls, and Bloodborne—is one of the problems when it comes to rejecting the possibility of a "singular vision" entirely, how...

A sample of an Oklahoma prison's drinking water had more than 12 times the allowable amount of lead when it was tested last year - an amount so high that officials question whether it could really be that bad or if the test could have been misleading. The sample taken from the Charles E. Johnson Correctional Center in Alva was unusually high, but it came from one of 30 Oklahoma water systems that have been found to have lead levels that exceeded the federally allowable limit between Jan. 1, 2013...
