Falling birth rates and a growing demand for factory workers mean that rural wages will keep rising sharply across the continent, according to the Overseas Development Institute's (ODI) report Rural Wages in Asia.

The ODI is Britain's leading independent think tank on international development and humanitarian issues.

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

At least one New Orleans hospital spent Wednesday morning training staff on the key differences between taking care of Ebola patients and patients with other infectious diseases.

If you visit a hospital or a clinic, you should expect to be asked if you've visited West Africa in the past 21 days, as per a Centers for Disease Control advisory.

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

The Archdiocese of New Orleans is on a fact-finding mission of sorts for the first time since the 1980s. It's called a synod - a gathering of people of God to pray and have discussion. Church leaders say it gives parishioners a voice to express what they want in the church.

"We're asking God to enlighten us," said Archbishop Gregory Aymond. "We're asking three questions: What are we doing well, what are we doing but can do better, and thirdly, what are we are not doing that God would expect us to do to build up the church?"

There is no panic. It does not exist.

Those were head coach Sean Payton's words following his team's 1-3 start.

"This is when you get tested a little bit, Payton said. "Not just physically, you get tested mentally, emotionally. We've got to be able to toughen up and be more detailed in what we're doing."

Quarterback Drew Brees added, "Everybody wants to know what the heck's going on, what's wrong, why are you guys 1-3, the sky is falling, oh my gosh.

SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - A fairly new organization in the Shreveport community is hoping to preserve the culture they feel has been lost in the Shreveport-Bossier area. To kick off this "preservation project," they are fighting to save six homes that date back 100 years in hopes of giving them a new lease on life.

The six "shotgun" homes lined up on Peabody street in Shreveport's Ledbetter community were set for demolition.

118 Iberville Parish businesses and individuals have filed economic loss claims with the BP Deepwater Horizon Court Supervised Settlement Program (CSSP). The CSSP began receiving claims on June 4, 2012 and will likely continue at least into the Spring of 2015. As of the date of publishing listed above, the precise claim filing deadline has yet to be set. For this reason, all businesses in Iberville Parish that experienced an economic loss as a result of the spill are encouraged to undergo an eligibility evaluation as soon as possible.
