Facebook could raise up to $13.6B from its initial public offering. Matt McCall tells Ali Velshi how investors can purchase shares.
But it's hard to imagine how Nokia and Microsoft plan to achieve a high level of penetration with the phone on a single carrier (AT&T).
Luckily for the partnership, it would seem as though T-Mobile will be getting the Lumia 900 over the course of the summer as well.
Tuberculosis has been brought under control in much of the world, thanks to prevention practices and powerful antibiotics. But in poor nations like Peru, the disease still kills hundreds of babies and children — and new drug-resistant cases threaten an even bigger resurgence.
Scientists say an epidemic of myopia, or nearsightedness, is sweeping through Asian children, and is likely due to students' spending too much time indoors studying and not enough time outside in the sunlight.
It has long been thought that nearsightedness is mostly a hereditary problem, but researchers led by Ian Morgan of Australian National University say the data suggest that environment has a lot more to do with it.
Rashida Jones will join Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari on the new NBC comedy that's almost definitely not a spin-off of The Office. Rumors about Office alum Jones have been swirling around the project for months, but the casting has finally been confirmed by the network. She will reportedly play a nurse whose boyfriend has a strange injury that leads her character to bump into Poehler and Ansari.
Peggy is mom to Rashida and she is a Jew therefore Rashida is officially a Jew. Who she’s dating was not in the show but we know that man is also Jewish SETH MYERS. So that makes sense she is sticking to her own kind. Of course their kids would be white/Jewish if they were to have any or get married.
This Friday Rashida was highlighted on the show Who Do You Think You Are? There were not too forthcoming about showing photos of the family when she was young. One thing I learned and was surprised about: Peggy Lipton is Jewish. She fooled me. But that goes without saying because in her day which was decades ago I did not focus on racial identity outside of my family. And even if I did Peggy just does not look Jewish.
Her family was from a country bordering on Russia. Some of her family was killed when the Nazi rounded up the town they were from and took them to the forest and shot them all and they were put in large open graves. I’ve watched a movie or two about such an event but I am not sure if this was their particular village or not.
Rashida looks just like her mother which is very unusual considering her dad Quincy Jones just looks like your average black man with little white admixture.
