Emmett Till Murder Trial Witness: I Lied

Emmett TillOn a steamy hot September day in 1955, in a racially segregated courtroom in Sumner, Mississippi, two white men, J.W. Milam and his half-brother Roy Bryant—a country-store owner—were acquitted of the murder of a 14-year-old black Chicago boy. His name was Emmett Till.

And in August of that year, while visiting a Deep South that he didn’t understand, Till had entered a store to buy two cents worth of bubble gum. Shortly after exiting, he likely whistled at Bryant’s 21-year-old wife, Carolyn. Enraged, Bryant and Milam took matters into their own hands. They would later admit to local authorities that they’d abducted Till three nights later.

First human-pig embryos created by scientists

Human-pig embryo Scientists have for the first time grown embryos that contain a combination of pig and human stem cells, in a step towards one day growing transplantable organs, a study says.
