Prosthetics That Feel
In this photo provided by James Vonderhuevel, Keith Vonderhuevel picks up 2-year-old Allison Vonderhuevel in Sidney, Ohio, using a special prosthetic hand that allowed him to feel sensation so he knew how tightly to squeeze. A next-generation artificial hand is letting amputees tell the difference between a soft or firm touch, another step toward developing prosthetics that can feel, and a natural enough sensation to hold a child without too tight a squeeze.

Pakistan Execution
FILE - In this Sept. 18, 2016 file photo, Safia Bano displays a picture of her husband Imdad Ali, who has been on death row since he was convicted in 2001 in a murder case, while she sits with other family members in Burewala, in central Pakistan. A defense lawyer said Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016, that Pakistani authorities have set a date for the execution of Ali, who is diagnosed with schizophrenia, after the country’s highest court rejected his final appeal. Sara Bilal, a lawyer at Justice Project Pakistan, said Nov. 2 was set as the date for the execution unless Pakistan’s president issues a pardon for him. (AP Photo/Asghar Ali, File)
