Head of INTERPOL Resigns, As Bribery Charges Loom in China

Interpol president Meng Hongwei has resigned, according to reports by various news outlets on Sunday, October 7. The surprise announcement comes just over a week after Meng’s wife reported him missing, after he left France to travel home to  China. His wife later reported that the last communication she received with him was a text message containing the knife emoji. On Monday,  October 8, China’s Ministry of Public Security released a statement confirming that Meng had been detained by party authorities upon his arrival in China as part of an anti-corruption probe. According to a  translation of the press release by the Associated Press, the Minister of Public Security, Zhao Lezhi, stated that “[w]e should deeply recognize the serious damage that Meng Hongwei’s bribe-taking and suspected violations of the law have caused the party and the cause of public security and deeply learn from this lesson.” The statement also said that…..

Pipeline Opposition Impedes Climate Change Mitigation

Environmental advocacy groups have enjoyed considerable success in recent years in their efforts to block construction of new gas pipelines and electricity transmission lines. For example, they have significantly delayed, and risked cancellation of, a number of proposals to construct natural gas pipelines across Virginia and New York as well as proposals to construct electricity transmission lines across Illinois and New Hampshire. But environmental advocacy groups that delay or block construction of gas pipelines and electricity transmission lines create significant obstacles to efforts to mitigate climate change. In fact, it is impossible to engage in effective mitigation of climate change without constructing many new gas pipelines and electricity transmission lines. Electric generating plants account for 38 percent of carbon dioxide emissions—the most significant of the greenhouse gases that contribute to climate change. Because there is no economically viable method….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information...

Rethinking Privacy on the Job

Amazon recently patented tracking wristbands that take surveillance at work to a new level. With this technology, the company could track workers’ movements throughout their warehouses and even send a vibration through the wearable device if a worker reached for the wrong item or took too long on breaks. Employers across the United States increasingly require employees to use new monitoring technology like Amazon’s device. But in a recent paper, scholars Ifeoma Ajunwa, Kate Crawford, and Jason Schultz argue that Congress needs to act to protect worker privacy. They suggest three possible pieces of legislation, including an Employee Privacy Protection Act that could “specifically limit workplace surveillance to its appropriate context—actual workplaces and actual workplace tasks.” Although punch-card systems and video cameras have long been used by employers to monitor their employees, a host of new inventions appear to be on the rise: tracking…..

How to Better Regulate Payments to Research Participants

The development of life-saving drugs and cutting-edge treatments depends on people participating in clinical research. But federal regulators restrict clinical researchers from using the exchange of payments for research participation—a powerful study recruitment strategy—because they worry that this practice leads to coercion or undue inducement. Because of the regulatory limits on payments in clinical research, Institutional Review Boards (IRBs)—the committees in charge of evaluating the ethics of research proposals—often block researchers from paying prospective research participants, which inhibits their ability to move forward with projects. To speed the pace of research development and innovation, regulators must revisit their definitions of coercion and undue inducement, as well as encourage the use of financial incentives for research recruitment, assert Emily Largent and Holly Fernandez Lynch, professors at the Perelman School of Medicine at the…..
