NEW YORK (AP) — Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton touted the efforts of a group combatting malnutrition and blindness during an awards speech in New York City.
Clinton delivered the remarks on Wednesday while being honored with the 2013 Helen Keller Humanitarian Award from Helen Keller International.
Clinton praised ground-tested approaches to fighting the maladies, like distributing Vitamin A supplements and teaching villagers in impoverished countries to grow nutrient-rich food in home gardens.
Earlier this month, former President Bill Clinton said speculating on his wife's political future was a waste of time and that the nation should be more focused on fixing its problems.
He also said the former New York senator was writing a book and "having a little fun being a private citizen for the first time in 20 years."
CHICAGO (AP) - An attorney for an 87-year-old grandmother who accuses Donald Trump of cheating her in a condo deal has told jurors the "Apprentice" star lied on the witness stand.
The accusation came as closing arguments began Wednesday in the week-old trial in Chicago.
Plaintiff attorney Shelly Kulwin told jurors Trump stepped on the stand before them "to lie, evade and spout infomercials."
His voice rising, he portrayed the case as a battle between an honest woman and a powerful billionaire. He said only in other countries are the powerful guaranteed to prevail at trial. He boomed, "Not in America!"
Jacqueline Goldberg alleges that Trump cheated her when she bought properties at the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago. Trump has denied the allegations.
Jurors will withdraw to deliberate later Wednesday.
DENVER (AP) - A federal judge in Denver is considering an injunction after ruling that nearly 250 Abercrombie & Fitch Co. and J.M. Hollister LLC clothing stores are unfriendly to the disabled.
The judge agreed in March with the Colorado Cross-Disability Coalition that the retailers that cater to a hip, young clientele limited access for customers in wheelchairs.
He said the only remedy under the Americans With Disabilities Act is an order to fix the problems, and individuals can't be compensated.
The lawsuit was filed on behalf of several Colorado customers who say they had trouble getting into stores and the sales countertops are too high.
The companies say they complied with all construction standards in effect at the time.
New Albany, Ohio-based Abercrombie & Fitch is the parent company of Hollister.
