Solemn Day as Mandela Lies in State A large crowd of mourners gathers at the Union Buildings in Pretoria to pay their final respects to Nelson Mandela.

Sole Survivor: Woman Found Alive After Week in Wilderness

Sole Survivor: Woman Found Alive After Week in Wilderness A 36-year-old woman who had been reported missing last week was found alive and well on Wednesday after spending a week in the wilderness of upstate New York. The woman, who has not been identified, is said to be in good condition considering the circumstances. According to authorities, the woman was last seen leaving her home in Oneida County on July 9.

The woman's survival is all the more remarkable giv

Sole provider of essential services in many towns and villages

Sole provider of essential services in many towns and villages While there are some large cities that have a variety of providers for essential services, many smaller towns and villages only have one provider. This can be a challenge for the citizens of these places when that provider happens to go out of business. There are several reasons why a town or village might only have one provider for essential services. One reason is that the town or village may be too small to support more than one business. Another reason is that the necessary infrastructure may not be available to support more than one business. Finally, the town or village may have chosen to award a contract to a single provider in order to reduce costs. Regardless of the reasons, the citizens of towns and villages with a single provider for essential services are at risk if that provider goes out of business. The citizens may find themselves without access to water, sewer, or trash collection service. In some case

Sole Source of Income for Many Americans

Sole Source of Income for Many Americans A recent study by the Federal Reserve reveals that nearly half of Americans couldn't cover an unexpected $400 expense. This lack of financial cushioning can be a result of many factors, but for many it is because their sole source of income is from a job that doesn't pay enough. Income from jobs has been on a downward trend for years, while income from other sources, such as investments and Social Security, have increased. The stagnation in wages is also contributing to the widening wealth gap. Democrats have been pushing for a higher minimum wage, which would help millions of Americans cover their expenses and improve their standard of living. Republicans argue that this would cause businesses to lay off workers, but the evidence shows that this is not the case. A study by the Economic Policy Institute found that a minimum wage increase to $12 per hour would lead to a net gain of about 26 million jobs. Raising the minimum wage w

Solemnly succumbing to the stress of the job

Solemnly succumbing to the stress of the job It's no secret that lawyers have one of the highest stress-levels of any profession. The hours are long, the work is challenging, and the responsibility can be overwhelming. But despite these well-known risks, many lawyers continue to push themselves to their limit – often with disastrous consequences. Stress can manifest itself in a number of ways, both physical and mental. It can cause headaches, nausea, insomnia, and a general feeling of anxiety and stress. In more serious cases, it can lead to depression, panic attacks, and even suicide. The pressure to succeed is often a key factor in lawyer stress. Lawyers are under constant scrutiny from peers, partners, clients, and others in the legal community. They are constantly being challenged to prove their worth, and often feel like they can never do enough. This pressure can be especially overwhelming for young lawyers who are just starting out in their careers. The high-pressure

Sole Survivor: Woman Found Alive After 7 Days In Wilderness

Sole Survivor: Woman Found Alive After 7 Days In Wilderness A 73-year-old woman who went missing for seven days in the wilderness of central California was found alive on Friday, after searchers spotted her waving a white cloth. The woman, whose identity has not been released, was reported missing by her family on Sunday, October 8. She had last been seen leaving her home near the town of Mariposa, about 70 miles (115 kilometers) west of Yosemite National Park, to go for a walk. A search party comprising hundreds of people began scouring the area around her home on Monday. The search was made more difficult by the fact that much of the surrounding land is forested and hilly. On Friday morning, a member of the search party saw the woman waving a white T-shirt from a hillside about two miles (3 kilometers) from her home. Rescuers reached her shortly afterward and transported her to a local hospital for treatment of dehydration and exposure. "She's lucky she's alive

Sole Survivor: Woman Found Alive After 7 Days in Desert

Sole Survivor: Woman Found Alive After 7 Days in Desert When 72-year-old Lorraine Bayless collapsed on a hiking trail in the Arizona desert, she never could have imagined that she'd be found alive days later -- let alone be the only victim of a deadly heat wave. Bayless had set out on the popular Camelback Mountain trail with her two border collies on Tuesday morning, but when she didn't return home by nightfall, her worried husband called police. A search and rescue team was dispatched to the area and tracked Bayless' last known location to a spot near the summit of the 2,700-foot peak. Temperatures in Phoenix had soared to an all-time high of 118 degrees that day, and with no water or shade in sight, it wasn't long before rescuers conceded that Bayless was likely dead. The team called off their search and began notifying her loved ones of her passing. But then, on Thursday evening, a hiker came across Bayless' nude body -- still warm to the touch -- less t
