Philippine Catholics make lifelong sacrifice after typhoon
Fri, 14 Mar 2014 00:11:16 -0400
Opong (Philippines) (AFP) - Returning to their destroyed village after a catastrophic typhoon that killed thousands in the Philippines last year, a weary band of Catholics vowed a lifelong sacrifice to thank God for saving them. The devotees' ensuing vow was to perform a religious procession similar to their pre-typhoon marches at least twice a week for the rest of their lives. Ten days after Super Typhoon Haiyan hit, AFP photographer Philippe Lopez took a dramatic photo of Indi at the head of the Opong procession that came to symbolise the devotion, hope and resilience of many typhoon survivors. They, along with many other residents of Opong, sheltered in the muddy field for about six hours, waiting for the storm surges to recede into the Pacific Ocean and the intense rain to pass.
Recalled GM cars linked to 303 airbag-related deaths
Fri, 14 Mar 2014 00:03:51 -0400
US safety regulators have tracked 303 deaths after airbags failed to properly deploy in vehicles recently recalled by General Motors, a consumer watchdog group said. The Center for Auto Safety commissioned a review by the Friedman Research Corporation into GM air bag failures from 2003 to 2012. GM is currently at the center of multiple investigations by US authorities because it was too slow to react to a defective ignition switch which would turn off while the car was in motion. GM linked the ignition problem to 31 accidents and 12 deaths in its 2005-7 Chevrolet Cobalt and 2003-7 Saturn Ion models.
