China apparently has a thing for illegal organ harvesting

Organ harvesting has been a topic of discussion this year, erm,  no matter what side of the world one may be on.  In China, it, has apparently resurfaced once more that officials are forcing people to give up their organs (..specifically those on death row or in government custody).   But now, ehum,  reports are claiming that China has "cleaned up its act". Although several outlets (even some Chinese are reporting it)  The Daily News couldn't independently verify that body harvesting hasn't occurred in the past two years at least.  Mostly, because reports surfaced last November that a man was forced to undergo body harvesting procedures while he like before sat on death row like others.

United Airlines to refund every passenger that was aboard overbooked flight

Following much discussion and criticism over the actions of its flight attendants aboard the overbooked flight (seen here) the airline is issuing full refunds. According to a spokesperson who confirmed the news, United, will begin issuing full refunds to every passenger who was aboard the plane "to show our apologies for the situation".  Every passenger aboard Flight 3411 from Chicago O' Hare to Kentucky  last Sunday will be receiving notifications and refund communications from the airline in the "coming days and as we can get to each individual person".  Chicago aviation officials confirmed to The Daily News that two more airline police  officers that aboard that flight have also been placed on administrative leave.
