    Britain High Street Lows** An elderly lady walks with a wheelie shopping bag past four closed shops on Trafalgar Road in Greenwich, London, Tuesday, March 5, 2013. The small shopkeepers in Greenwich are running out of time. In the London borough that gave its name to Greenwich Mean Time, businesses like Lorraine Turton's are in danger of being relegated to history _ the victims of online shopping, changing tastes and, increasingly, the protracted recession. Her Internet cafe on Trafalgar Road is a rare hive of activity on a "high street" _ the British name for a town's main business district. (AP Photo/Matt Dunham)

    In this Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013 photo, Free Syrian Army fighter, al-Hakim, right, a commander of the Ghurabaa al-Sham brigade that holds a cluster of Christian villages, speaks during an interview with the Associated Press, in the Christian village of Yacobiyeh, in Idlib province, Syria. Yacobiyeh and its neighbors, Judeida and Quniya, are some of the first Christian villages to be taken by the rebel Syrian Army. The rebels stormed these hilltop villages in late January, after the army used it as a base to shell nearby rebel-controlled areas. The villages are largely empty due to the fighting, with a few mostly elderly Christians -- including Roman Catholics and Armenian Orthodox _ living among Sunni Muslim refugees who have moved up here from the plains. They still face sporadic artillery bombardment from below.(AP Photo/Hussein Malla)

    Elderly people sit on a bench to take in the sun with their dog along the Promenade Des Anglais in Nice February 19, 2013. France's President will ask more of old people to fix the hole in the nations retirement coffers but tread gently in doing so. Even a softly-softly approach will mark the first time a left-wing president has dared to tamper with a system which is one of the sacred cows of France's model of generous welfare provision. A plan in the works will likely leave intact the official retirement age of 62 but trim annual pension rises, buying Hollande time to try and coax people in their 50s and 60s to work a few more years, officials working on the project say.

    A car passes through the gate of Glenwood Gardens in Bakersfield, Calif., Monday March 4, 2013, where an elderly woman died after a nurse refused to perform CPR on her last week. The central California retirement home is defending one of its nurses who refused pleas by a 911 operator to perform CPR on an elderly woman, who later died. "Is there anybody that's willing to help this lady and not let her die," dispatcher Tracey Halvorson says on a 911 tape released by the Bakersfield Fire Department aired by several media outlets.
