Lorde's 'Royals' banned in S.F.; K.C. station to play it every hour - LA Times
"In a move that is sure to tip the World Series scales in favor of the San Francisco Giants, two Bay Area radio stations have banned the song "Royals" until their beloved team is finished playing the Kansas City squad that has the same name as the 2013 hit by Lorde in the World Series. KFOG Radio tweeted last week: "No offense, Lorde, but for the duration of the World Series, KFOG Radio will be a 'Royals'-free zone."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"Carney also defended the Keys' choice not to put their last two albums on Spotify. Artists aren't being fairly compensated, he said. (Cracker's David Lowery has made the same point about Pandora.) "My whole thing about music is: If somebody's making money then the artist should be getting a fair cut of it," Carney said. Presumably referring to Spotify co-founder Sean Parker, he added, "The owner of Spotify is worth something like 3 billion dollars ... he's richer than Paul McCartney and he's 30 and he's never written a song."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

$680,000 Home Wrong Lot: Dream Florida Beach House Built On Wrong Lot
"A $680,000 home was built on the wrong lot, leaving the new owners with quite a headache. According to The SpreadIt, Mark and Brenda Voss of Missouri wanted to build a fancy home near Palm Coast, right near the water. They hired a building company and got their plans underway. However, the company ended up building the beautiful home on the lot across the street… Oops? The beach house is absolutely stunning. It has “5.5 bathrooms, a home theater, game room and screened-in pool,” but it’s in the wrong location. The lot that the house was built on belongs to a couple from North Carolina. Andrew Massaro and Brooke Triplett now have a beautiful home on their property… that they didn’t put there. The $680,000 home on the wrong lot story gets even more interesting. Apparently the Voss’ — who own a “well-established” real estate company — own 18 different lots in the gated community. Unfortunately, their builders picked one lot that didn’t belong to them. According to FOX News, Mark and his wife are in “total disbelief” that something like this even happened." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Anger over refusal to bench school athlete accused of rape in Wash - http://www.msn.com/en-us...
"The decision of a Washington state school district to allow a high school student charged with rape to continue to play on the football team has sparked anger from parents amid national scrutiny over how college and professional athletes are censured for violence. Tyler Smith, 18, was arrested last month during football practice at his high school in Hoquiam in western Washington, and charged with raping two teenage girls - one in July and another in 2012, court documents show. Smith, who was released on bail pending trial and has returned to school and the football team, told investigators the girls said "no," but that in one case: "I thought she was saying 'no' for pleasure," according to court records." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Egg Freezing as a Work Benefit? Some Women See Darker Message

Now some of those companies are setting off a debate about women and work with a new benefit — paying for women on the payroll to freeze their eggs." "Yet by paying for women to delay pregnancy, are employers helping them achieve that balance — or avoiding policies that experts agree would greatly help solve the problem, like paid family leave, childcare and flexible work arrangements? “Egg freezing seems to put a Band-Aid on the problem of how difficult it is for women to have a career and raise a family concurrently,” Seema Mohapatra, a health care law and bioethics expert, wrote in August in a Harvard Law & Policy Review article titled “Using Egg Freezing to Extend the Biological Clock: Fertility Insurance or False Hope?” For women whose circumstances have made it unrealistic to have a baby and who are considering egg freezing, the new benefit is likely to be a highly welcome... more... - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"Using strikingly open language, a new Vatican report says the church should welcome and appreciate gays, and offers a solution for divorced and remarried Catholics who want to receive Communion. At a press conference on Monday to present the report, Cardinal Louis Antonio Tagle of the Philippines said Catholic clergy meeting here have largely focused on the impact of poverty, war and immigration on families. But the newly proposed language on gays and civil marriages represents a “pastoral earthquake,” said one veteran Vatican journalist. “Regarding homosexuals, it went so far as to pose the question whether the church could accept and value their sexual orientation without compromising Catholic doctrine,” said John Thavis, a former Rome bureau chief for Catholic News Service. The Rev. James Martin, an author and Jesuit priest, called the report's language on gays and lesbians "revolutionary."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"Talk about awkward. Sears secured a $400 million loan this week from a hedge fund whose sole shareholder is the struggling retailer's chairman, CEO and leading investor."" "It's shady because there is clearly a conflict of interest here," said Brian Sozzi, who closely tracks the retail industry as CEO of Belus Capital Advisors. Devil's in the details: Sears, which lost $1 billion during the first half of the year, revealed the loan in a vaguely-worded regulatory filing late Monday. The company said the the short-term loan is being provided by entities tied to ESL Investments, whose sole stockholder and CEO is Sears head Eddie Lampert. ESL Investments controls 24.8% of Sears's outstanding shares, making it the No. 1 stockholder. Lampert himself is listed as owning 23.7% of the company's outstanding stock.
