Efforts to end poverty around the world are many, various, and seemingly unending. Such efforts might also be, as they say, as old as the hills.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Oklahoma Senate President Pro Tem Brian Bingman has been re-elected to a historic third term as the Senate leader.
Bingman — a Republican — said Tuesday he was selected by the 36 Senate Republicans in a closed-door caucus meeting. Bingman said in a statement that he is "incredibly humbled."
He will become the first Senate leader re-elected to a third term since Republicans took control of the chamber in 2008 for the first time since statehood. He will be formally elected to the post in 2015, after this year's elections.
