Delays are endemic and courts are backlogged. Of the more than 600 rapes reported in New Delhi last year ? far below the actual number of such attacks, experts say ? only one person has been convicted so far. In a vicious circle, police ineffectiveness leads many women to consent to marriage, but such marriages, sometimes reached after the police have gone to the effort to pursue a case, discourage adequate police investigations.

Women?s historical willingness to endure horrible dangers, to submit to extreme and prolonged pain, to risk grave injury and death rather than remain pregnant, tells us something important about female desperation and determination, and the price women were ? and still are ? willing to pay to control their own bodies. What it tells us is that women will always find ways to end an unwanted pregnancy, no matter what the law says, no matter the risks to themselves.

college she received a C on her first midterm paper and realized she needed to learn how to construct more coherent arguments, and that she also needed to improve her English, which was ?riddled with Spanish constructions and usage.? Over the next few summers, she says, she devoted each day?s lunch hour to grammar exercises and to learning 10 new words. She also tried to catch up on the classics ? like ?The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn? and ?Pride and Prejudice? ? that she?d missed out on in her youth, when there was little to read around the house besides Reader?s Digest.

The United States government has a very different view of Mr. Swartz. In 2011, he was arrested and accused of using M.I.T.?s computers to gain illegal access to millions of scholarly papers kept by Jstor, a subscription-only service for distributing scientific and literary journals. At his trial, which was to begin in April, he faced the possibility of millions of dollars in fines and up to 35 years in prison, punishments that friends and family say haunted him for two years and led to his suicide. Mr. Swartz was a flash point in the debate over whether information should be made widely available. On one side were activists like Mr. Swartz and advocacy groups like the Electronic Frontier Foundation and Students for Free Culture. On the other were governments and corporations that argued that some information must be kept private for security or commercial reasons.

They moved to Virginia in 2009. As they entered their fourth year without Colonel Finken, a friend who had also lost her husband to war suggested that the good days might begin to outnumber the bad. And so it came to be. Where the Clarksville house had been all Daddy?s handiwork, this one belonged to the girls. They chose the decorations, hung the pictures, oversaw repairs to the deck. They had a sense of ownership. At school, the girls also found that they had new power to define themselves. Unlike in Clarksville, where everyone knew about their father, in Virginia they could choose whom to tell. They confided in close friends, but others might be told that Daddy was deployed or was ?up north,? the girls? euphemism for heaven. ?Back at Tennessee, there were some kids who didn?t understand,? Emilie explained about her selectivity. ?They thought that we couldn?t see pictures of our dad without freaking out and starting to cry. But that?s not true.?

Reality check: I?m trying to make it through chaotic mornings at home with a clamoring family. Mr. O?Donovan is amused. Why, he asks, would I make espresso in the morning, let alone latte? ?I make drip coffee,? Mr. O?Donovan explains. Mr. Baca does, too. That?s because making a good espresso requires preparation and cleanup. Even when it all goes right, it takes time. Like making a good meal.

Mr. Baca asked me to bring my usual brand of coffee and makes a shot with it. It is not good. Lesson No. 1: coffee matters. Just because the bag says ?fair trade? or ?locally roasted? does not mean the highest-grade beans have been selected and put through meticulous roasting. We toss my $13-a-pound coffee in the trash. Then Mr. Baca provides a math lesson.

This step is crucial, Ant says, because otherwise water flows unevenly through the coffee, creating unwanted channels. I press another button, to run the water through the coffee. We press a timer to make sure I leave the water flowing for 25 seconds. Brown and tan espresso flows into the demitasse, which Ant calls the ?vessel.? Ant sips. ?It?s not terribly offensive.? I sip. It is, actually, terribly offensive. Sour and bitter. Ant makes a cup using the same steps. It has a hint of sweetness, just shy of floral, no aftertaste. I make another. Just as bad as my first. Maybe I need milk.

Of the more than 600 rape cases reported in Delhi in 2012, only one led to a conviction. If victims believe they will receive justice, they will be more willing to speak up. If potential rapists fear the consequences of their actions,

It is a culture that believes that the worst aspect of rape is the defilement of the victim, who will no longer be able to find a man to marry her ? and that the solution is to marry the rapist.

Thanks to the Innocence Project and the overturning of 18 wrongful convictions of death-row inmates with DNA evidence and the exonerations of 16 others charged with capital crimes, the American public is increasingly aware that the system makes terrible mistakes. Since 1973, a total of 142 people have been freed from death row after being exonerated with DNA or other kinds of evidence.

The punishment is supposed to be reserved for the very worst criminals, but dozens of studies in state after state have shown that the process for deciding who should be sent to death row is arbitrary and discriminatory.

A distinguished committee of scholars convened by the National Research Council found that there is no useful evidence to determine if the death penalty deters serious crimes. Many first-rate scholars have tried to prove the theory of deterrence, but that research ?is not informative about whether capital punishment increases, decreases, or has no effect on homicide rates,? the committee said. A host of other respected experts have also concluded that life imprisonment is a far more practical form of retribution, because the death penalty process is too expensive, too time-consuming and unfairly applied.

Mainland buyers accounted for nearly one-fifth of the value of Hong Kong residential apartments sold last year, and are one reason that prices are soaring. The number of schoolchildren commuting to Hong Kong schools from Shenzhen, a sprawling mainland urban area just north of the border, has tripled in five years.
