Earth, Wind and Fire Wreak Destruction
There’s no stopping Mother Nature and the past decade proved that far too often. Aided, in some cases, by human fallibility, the forces of nature packed quite a punch that still hurts.
There’s a certain quaintness in taking time to look back—especially in milestone moments like the turn of a decade. It’s The this ability to track and research global news stories even years after they’re published that makes Nexis® a valuable tool for researchers, reporters and business intelligence leaders.
