If certain targets are met, the rate of new infections may be down to 12,000 a year by 2025, which would mark a transition toward the end of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, a new study, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, said.

Every so often I experience stories that highlight how things can be small in action but big in impact. And since it's Ramadan I'd say it's an apt time to share one. This story is about someone I work with (anonymous) that won a year's worth of free Chik-fil-A when a new one opened up downtown.
Now nobody would've judged this person if they decided to keep it on the low so they could have unhindered access to a mountain of chicken sandwiches and waffle fries.
But what happened instead was it got put out for the entire office to use so that anyone who was strapped for cash could still get lunch. Since then it's been able to feed not only the staff countless times but homeless folks as well.
This person is pretty humble (but won't readily admit it) and I'll probably be getting scolded for putting them on blast. But I think the greater good here is a chance to show that when you have more than you need, giving a little can go a long way.
