The Pulse for August 16, 2014
Number 5:
In the workplace, the "corner office with a view" has always been the coveted office to have, but according to a new study, it turns out that corner office might provide more for you than just the status.
Turns out , it's all about letting in a little sun shine.
Researchers found the workers who were close to a window were inspired to exercise more and were better rested, sleeping on average 46 minutes more a night than those who worked in a windowless office.

Number 4:
The scale of the slaughters carried out by ISIS continues to grow.
The Sunni extremists have again targeted one of Iraq's tiniest minority groups, in a brutal massacre that may have been much worse than even first feared.
The attack happened Friday in the Yazidi Village of Kojo, in northern Iraq.
A Yazidi leader tells the media that ISIS fighters killed more than 350 men, and abducted 1,000 women and children.

Number 3:
Texas Governor Rick Perry says he will fight charges that he abused his power.
Speaking from Austin Saturday, he said the allegations are politically motivated.
He was indicted on Friday on charges that he abused his power by trying to pressure a district attorney to resign.
The special prosecutor in the case said the two felony counts against Perry stem from his threat to veto funding for a statewide public integrity unit run by Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, unless she stepped down.
Perry's attorney calls the indictment a "political abuse of the court system."

Number 2:
The mayor of Ferguson, Missouri implemented a city-wide curfew in an effort to prevent further looting, after declaring a state of emergency for the city.
This, after 18-year-old Michael Brown was fatally shot by a police officer last weekend. The shooting is still under investigation and causing chaos in the area.
Protesters, holding a vigil in brown's honor, raising their arms and yelling "don't shoot."
Two University of Arkansas students made the trip to Ferguson, holding their signs at the demonstration.
They read -- "let it be" and "we must unite".

Number 1:
The World Health Organization said the magnitude of the Ebola crisis in west Africa is "vastly" underestimated.
Ebola has infected at least 19-hundred people in Nigeria, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone since the outbreak began this year.
Half of the victims have died.
It is hard to estimate how many infections were never reported to doctors.
The Ebola virus causes extreme fever and multiple organ failure.
It is spread through contact with bodily fluids.
