After being sued for widespread fraud, which bilked consumers out of millions of dollars, a self-described charity called the Cancer Fund of America, based in Tennessee, has tentatively agreed to go out of business.
According to CNN, the decision came after a court battle with the Federal Trade Commission and the attorneys general for all 50 states.
In a 2014 chart billed America's Worst Charities based on cash paid to solicitors in a 10-year period, the Cancer Fund ranked second behind another outfit called the Kid's Wish Network. The Cancer Fund raised $86.8 million but paid $75.4 million to solicitors while spending just 1 percent of the funds raised on direct cash aid. more >>

A soup kitchen run by an order of nuns in the San Francisco area faces eviction after their rent was substantially increased by their landlord.
The Fraternite Notre Dame Mary of Nazareth Soup Kitchen were told last month that their rent was to increase from about $3,400 to $5,500.
The Institute on Family Studies released a study Thursday which found that couples who attend worship services together or when only the man attends services are happier than couples in which neither partner or only the woman attends.
Titled "Better Together: Religious Attendance, Gender, and Relationship Quality," the study was authored by W. Bradford Wilcox, director of the National Marriage Project at the University of Virginia and Nicholas H. Wolfinger, professor in the Department of Family and Consumer Studies and Adjunct Professor of Sociology at the University of Utah.
"Seventy-eight percent of men and women in couples who regularly go to services together, or where only the man attends regularly, report that they are 'very happy' or 'extremely happy,' after adjusting for differences in race, age, education, marital status, region, and other factors," read the study. more >>
