Procter & Gamble Co. corporate headquarters is seen July 15, 2008 in downtown Cincinnati, OhioThe consumer goods giant, which sells the NyQuil flu medicine and other cold remedies under its Vicks brand, pointed to lower sales of these health products as a factor behind slightly dipping sales and scant earnings growth. The weak sales of cold remedies, part of a two-percent fall in health product sales, came despite a brutal winter in much of the US. "It was cold all winter," said P&G chief financial officer Jon Moeller, who nonetheless cited "a very light cough and cold season, particularly in North America." "It was a steady weather pattern instead of a volatile weather pattern, at least that certainly has some impact on cough and cold incidence."

Members of National League for democracy (NLD) prepare a memorial ceremony for Win Tin next to his portrait in Yangon on April 21, 2014Hundreds of mourners gathered Wednesday to mark the funeral of Win Tin, a former journalist and giant of Myanmar's pro-democracy movement, in an outpouring of grief for one of the country's best loved champions of freedom. A memorial ceremony in a church in the nation's commercial hub Yangon was a sea of blue as activists and political figures donned the prison uniform colour in tribute to Win Tin, who was Myanmar's longest-serving political detainee under the former junta. The co-founder of Myanmar's opposition party along with Aung San Suu Kyi, Win Tin continued to wear a blue shirt after his release in 2008. He died in hospital in Yangon early Monday at the age of 84 after suffering a range of health problems.
