Death toll rises to 48 after Kenyan dam burst
The heavy rains in Kenya and other regional states come after a severe drought which left millions of people in need of food aid. But the general manager of the farm, Vinoj Kumar, denied the accusation. "The dams are not illegal".

"Please help us in our fight to end hunger, as we celebrate our 26th anniversary year in America's great day of giving", they said in a news release.

Stamp Out Hunger, organized by the National Association of Letter Carriers, is the nation's biggest single-day food drive. Customers leave a donation of non-perishable goods next to their mailbox where the carrier collects it.

Hamilton wary of Ferrari despite Mercedes dominance
Valtteri Bottas was second, while Vettel was third. "I locked up into turn one and I never got the grip that I was looking for". It was a record-extending 74th pole for Hamilton, and the first since the season-opener in Australia.

The impact everyone else faces will pale in comparison to Ford, an automotive research firm located in Ann Arbor , Michigan said. All told, 7,600 workers at the two plants will be directly impacted, 4,000 of them in Dearborn, 3,600 in Kansas City.

Hopefully there are non-perishable food items in your pantry that you can afford to donate. Please no food past its expiration or "best by date", no open items, no glass jars, and no homemade/jarred items. They request on the website that you do not include any items in glass bottles or any expired products. One thing I've noticed over the years is that, a lot of times, it's the people in the poorer neighborhoods that participate the most. There is no specific type of bag that should be used; a common paper or plastic grocery bag is accepted. In Stillwater, donations benefit The Salvation Army and Our Daily Bread Food & Resource Center in collaboration with the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma. This drive is one way people can assist those in their own city who need help.
