An aerial, as opposed to ground-level, view of time
Do today and yesterday and tomorrow loom large in your thinking, with the more distant past and future barely visible on the horizon? That ’s not unusual in today’s time-pressed world — and it seems a recipe for angst.Suppose, instead, you looked down on your life, or at least your calendar, from high overhead; and all your days, future and past, were equally visible and real to you, sort of like the sketches above.

Genetically modifying future children isn ’t just wrong. It would harm all of us | Marcy Darnovsky
Genome editing for human embryos is an unnecessary threat to society. Why has the Nuffield Council of Bioethics endorsed it?The Nuffield Council on Bioethics has taken what it clearly regards as a brave new step: it has openly endorsed the use of genome editing toengineer the traits of future children and generations. The council ’s report,Genome editing and human reproduction: social and ethical issues, asserts that such a move could be “morally permissible” under certain circumstances. In effect, it argues that the creation of genetically modified human beings should proceed after a few bioethics-lite b...

The treatment of alcohol dependence by total abstinence: The experience of residents at Studio House, Nottingham
Key findings For residents of Studio House, facilitators and barriers for the successful completion of the programme vary along the recovery journey. The Studio House programme can be viewed as a learning experience. The meaning of recovery for residents goes beyond alcohol abstinence to include mental, physical and relational wellbeing. Staff ability to connect with residents, skills development, programme understanding, and, to a certain extent, peer support are the main facilitators to recovery. Misunderstanding of the ‘consequences system’ could be a barrier to the successful completion of the programme. M...

(Nuffield Council on Bioethics) An independent inquiry by the Nuffield Council on Bioethics has concluded that editing the DNA of a human embryo, sperm, or egg to influence the characteristics of a future person ('heritable genome editing') could be morally permissible. If that is to happen, a number of measures would need to be put in place first to ensure that genome editing proceeds in ways that are ethically acceptable. (Source: EurekAlert! - Biology)
