    In this Oct. 26, 2012 photo, Carlos Alberto Lopes, who was injured in a car accident, swims in a pool during a physical therapy session at a hospital in Sao Paulo, Brazil. A study from the Association for Assistance to Disabled Children, which runs a chain of Brazil's top rehabilitation centers, showed that in 2011, 40 percent of the patients it worked with in Sao Paulo who suffered serious spinal injuries were hurt in traffic accidents. In 2008, Lopes was riding in a vehicle traveling about 50 mph on a rainy highway in Minas Gerais state when the road curved smoothly left. The car hydroplaned, skidded into an embankment and rolled several times down a long incline. Of the four occupants, Lopes was the only one with serious injuries, leaving him paralyzed from the waist down. (AP Photo/Andre Penner)

    Robert M. Walker, a historian who became Vicksburg’s first black mayor in the late 1980s, speaks about the first monument within the national park system and the only one in the Vicksburg National Military Park, that honors all black people _ free and slave _ who participated in military action in Vicksburg during the Civil War, Thursday, Aug. 16, 2012, in Vicksburg, Miss. Walker was instrumental in helping get the monument in 2003. Black soldiers fought for the Union in the Battle of Milliken’s Bend, La., on June 7, 1863, just up the Mississippi River from Vicksburg. The site was a supply and communication post for the Union as it worked to conquer Vicksburg. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis)

The Wendy’s Co. says Thursday, Aug. 9, 2012 that it lost money in the second quarter because of costs to refinance debt. But a key sales figure rose as it worked to reinvent itself as a higher-end hamburger chain. The Dublin, Ohio-based fast-food company says sales at restaurants open at least 15 months rose 3.2 percent for the quarter. (AP Photo/Pat Wellenbach, File)
