When progress isn't so healthy

By Nuala McKeever

Sometimes a headline just stops you dead. On one page, side by side, you get "Google contact lens can monitor glucose levels in the body" and "Ohio man takes 25 minutes to die after new untried drug execution". What a world.

We can check your health without touching you but we can't execute a man without making him suffer agony.

Sometimes you just want to stand miles above the Earth and shout "Bulls**t!"

As a human race we've the ability to graduate with top class honours and yet we still behave as if we're in nursery school with absolutely no clue.
