Sonia Faleiro ::: How Technology has Transformed the Sex Trade
I was browsing CBS2's interactive site and a story about the dreaded skin disease MRSA caught my eye. Ok, we know about MRSA, but we did we know it could do THIS: "Doctors said Mauriello’s secondary infection, Lemierre’s, manifested as a septic clot in his jugular vein and was likely caused by the MRSA." YIKES!
The story reminds me of what happened to model Mariana Bridi, dead for two years now...

(NY Mag outlines the paralells of the two deals) ...The Internet company's name is still a proxy for expensive mergers gone wrong following the unraveling of its $350 billion merger with Time Warner Inc in 2000. Once worth $163 billion, today AOL has a market capitalization of around $2.3 billion. Shares fell 3.4 percent to close at $21.19 on Monday.

Notably, there is no Tea Party counterpart to the Huffington Post. The numbers don’t lie.”
Karl Frisch, the progressive strategist, suggested that, just as Drudge had inspired the Huffington Post, the Huffington Post had inspired sites with more conservative viewpoints.
“With her new perch, Arianna will be able to broaden her reach,” Frisch said.
