As Israel struggles to accept the severity of Ariel Sharon's medical prognosis, a host of questions are being raised about the care the prime minister has received since his first stroke Dec. 18. The controversy is stimulated largely by critical media reports after Sharon's massive cerebral hemorrhage Wednesday. It centers on decisions about the manner in which he was transferred to the Jerusalem hospital where he lies comatose, the prescription of blood thinners after his first stroke, the speed with which he returned to work, and the necessity of the heart catheterization he was scheduled to undergo hours before his medical crisis.

Although women have made great strides in every facet of the workplace - reaching the pinnacle of success in countless professions - we still earn only 73 cents for every dollar earned by our male counterparts. However, in the arena of professional sports, this is one problem the women of the U.S. soccer team no longer have. Unwilling to accept unequal compensation, the 20 team members - winners of the 1999 World Cup who brought the game to new heights and increased its popularity worldwide - boycotted the Australia Cup this past January.

It was better to be late than sorry for Daquan Bohannan of North Philadelphia as he braved the rain, bumper-to-bumper mall parking, and throngs of last-minute Christmas shoppers at the Cherry Hill Mall on Wednesday. He had a mission: Pick bracelet charms for his mother, Nicole, 41, at Pandora, which by noon was packed to the brim with customers, almost all of them men on the hunt for gifts for mothers, girlfriends, or wives. It became so crowded an employee was stationed at the store entrance, having customers sign a waiting list to get in. "I just remembered yesterday that I had a few last-minute things to get," Bohannan said as he stood behind a jewelry counter, perusing a catalog.
