According to reports, Occupy Wall Street is marching to the homes of corporate wealth giants. Rupert Murdoch, CEO of NewsCorp and FOX news is on the list of homes the protesters plan to visit.

The USA and a couple of advanced countries, chiefly the UK and Australia, have been experiencing an ongoing severe shortage of prescribed medications.
