Charles Ray lost contact with his family in Fayetteville about 10 years ago. Later, he suffered a stroke that affected his memory and made it impossible for him to recall their exact whereabouts, reports ABC-11 News. Eventually he ended up homeless in Raleigh.

Lucky for him, the people at Oak City Outreach Center, which serves people living on downtown streets, encourage their volunteers to really sit down and talk to those they are feeding.

Shameeka, a social worker intern, did just that. She learned his story and used what little information he recalled to track down his relatives, who were overjoyed to hear of Charles’ whereabouts.

Further service from the Center helped him get h

WASHINGTON — As a young lawyer for the Watergate committee in the 1970s, Hillary Rodham caught a ride home one night with her boss, Bernard Nussbaum. Sitting in the car before going inside, she told him she wanted to introduce him to her boyfriend. “Bernie,” she said, “he’s going to be president of the United States.”

Mr. Nussbaum, stressed by the pressure of that tumultuous period, blew up at her audacious naïveté. “Hillary, that’s the most idiotic” thing, he screamed. She screamed back. “You don’t know a goddamn thing you’re talking about!” she said, and then called him a curse word. “God, she started bawling me out,” he recalled. “She walks out and slammed the door on me, and she storm

New Orleans, Louisiana (CNN) -- Democratic Sen. Mary Landrieu lost her Senate runoff race Saturday night, felled by the red tide that's swept the South and ties to an unpopular President that she couldn't shake.

CNN called the race for her Republican opponent Rep. Bill Cassidy a little over a half hour after the polls closed. Republicans picked up nine Senate seats this election cycle and will have control of 54 seats in the chamber next year.

Once seen as Democrats' strongest incumbent, Landrieu ended up such a long-shot in her runoff with Cassidy that the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee cut its investment in the state, a move that Landrieu decried as leaving "a soldier on th

WASHINGTON DC - The total enrollment sign-up target for the Affordable Care Act met its goal Tuesday with 7.1 million people who have signed up on federal or state exchanges for coverage.

The enrollment period began in October with a horribly designed federal website and ended with a far too many people people turning away in frustration.

Obama said the program approved by Congress in 2010 -- with no Republican support and knocked every way they could muster.

Obama said it wasn't perfect and predicted more hurdles in carrying it out.

The overall goal of starting to narrow the gap between those with health coverage and those without it has begun, and millions

Bath time is the best time. Barry the pug has irrefutable proof.

Barry’s owner, Australian carpenter and photographer David Stanton, posted a video on YouTube last month showing his water-loving pooch luxuriating in a pug-sized “tub.” As you can imagine, it's two minutes of over-the-top sudsy cuteness.

As of Wednesday morning, the clip had been watched more than 1.4 million times.

Lather, rinse, replay!

This young girl is truly benevolent beyond her years.

Three-year-old Ariana Smith from Winterport, Maine watched a video from Extra Life, a charity that raises money for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals through video gaming, that featured a girl who didn't have any hair. The curious kid then decided to ask her parents about what she saw, Josh Smith, Ariana's father, told the Huffington Post in an e-mail.

"She asked why the little girl had no hair. We explained that she was sick and that the medicine they were using made her hair fall out," Smith said.

Giving back has become a hobby for Gunner Robinson.

The 9-year-old from Wilmington, North Carolina, has collected 401 pounds of nonperishable food items for those in need, his mother, Kristi, told The Huffington Post. Wanting to help families put food on the table for Thanksgiving, Gunner began collecting the items on Oct. 13, according to WECT News.

Gunner amassed the donations by reaching out to friends and family, Kristi's work colleagues and the family's church community. All but 15 of the 401 pounds of items have been donated to a soup kitchen and food banks, Kristi told HuffPost on Monday, noting the rest will be given soon.

Kristi said her son simply wants everyone to have wh

Many believe the American economy has some inherent advantages over its major competitors – a more flexible structure, stronger entrepreneurial traditions, a more demographically dynamic society.

“Well, along comes a fascinating new book,” writes Farred Zakaria, that points out, “you ain’t seen nothing yet.”

“Peter Zeihan’s The Accidental Superpower begins with geography, pointing out that America is the world’s largest consumer market for a reason – rivers. Transporting goods by water, he points out, is 12 times cheaper than by land, which is why civilizations have always flourished around rivers.”

”And America, Zeihan calculates, has more navigable waterways – 17,600 miles worth –
