    Washington, D.C., where the powers that reign over the United States reside, is sinking into the ocean.

The retail giant hopes to avoid the kind of trouble that Whole Foods ran into last month when it was investigated for overcharging customers. That probe is still going on, and the store is expected to be hit with millions of dollars in fines as a result. Brian Nick, a Walmart spokesperson, confirmed that the company’s […]

    (CNN) — Zion Harvey just wanted to swing from the monkey bars. That’s what the Baltimore youngster told his doctor when asked why he wanted hands.
