The home page leads with a local story today: An enterprise piece about the highly paid, politically connected lawyers who win receivership jobs looking after foreclosed buildings. And in a follow-up to the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to side with Wal-Mart in a massive sex-discrimination class-action suit, we learn that the effect of the decision will be to make it harder to bring such suits in the future. The top choice for today's paper comes from Health, in a feature on an exhibit of the history of medical advertising.
World: The lead story, on the Sudanese government's violent push to halt the rebellion there, is well worth the read, but it's a bit difficult to take. And in an interesting twist in the Libyan rebel saga, a rebel leader is making a visit to Beijing to talk diplomacy.
Business: The focus in the business section today is on Greece, where a vote of confidence will be the first step to introducing austerity measures meant to correct the financial crisis there.
Technology: The story by Brian Stelter on the lack of anonymity on the Web makes a good point, but it hardly seems like a new one. Also of interest, check out the report on in-game advertising in the Xbox.
Science: It's heady stuff, but the lead story on scientists using worms to research neurons and the brain is a great read. And forget police sketch artists: We meet a man who sculpts busts of decomposed murder victims.
Health: The fantastic feature on the Philadelphia Museum of Art's retrospective on medical advertising will really make you think hard about those television drug ads with the fast-talking disclaimers at the end. And the slide show is just awesome. Also, runners will be interested in this debunker of the famed 10 percent rule.
