Subway Rescue

At 7:15 on the morning of February 9, the subway station at 59th Street and Lexington Avenue was getting crowded.
For Leah Bianco, it was a typical Monday. She was wearing gym clothes, waiting for the train to take her four stops to Times Square. She was watching for the lights of an approaching train when, suddenly, a man collided with her and ran away. She fell down the five feet to the track below.
Across the platform, Randy Brown was listening to music on his portables CD player when he heard a scream: “Please help me!” Taking off his headphone, he kneeled, stretched down, and pulled Leah up onto the platform. A few seconds later, a train stopped at that platform.
Because Leah was very nervous, she went to work without thanking Randy. Later that day, she contacted the New York Daily News. The newspaper published her photograph in a front-page story about the incident.
Brown read it and contacted the newspaper. In a typical New York twist, the Daily News reward him for his heroism with a job in sales support.

Child Labor

The International Labor Organization (ILO) has estimated that 218 million children between the ages of five and seventeen work in developing countries. Of these, 122.3 million children work in the Asia-Pacific region, 49.3 million work in Sub-Saharan Africa, and 5.7 million work in Latin America and the Caribbean. Most working children in rural areas are found in agriculture; many children work as domestics; urban children work in trade and services, with fewer in manufacturing and construction.
            Child labor ranges from four-year-olds tied to rug looms to keep them from running away, to seventeen-year-olds helping out on the family farm. In some cases, a child's work can be helpful to him or her and to the family; working and earning can be a positive experience in a child's growing up. This depends largely on the age of the child, the conditions in which the child works, and whether work prevents the child from going to school.
