Those Jennifer Lawrence Pictures Aren’t Scandalous

buzzfeed.com — More than 60 years ago, an "It" girl not that unlike Jennifer Lawrence also had highly suggestive and topless photos emerge into the public sphere, just as her career was rocketing from B-player to A-list star. A 23-year-old Marilyn Monroe, desperate for work, posed nude for art photographer Tom Kelley in 1949, receiving $50 for her time.

Say hello to men who hate the NSA but love invading the lives of women

theverge.com — Over the weekend someone released hundreds of revealing photos of celebrities that appear to have been stolen from private storage. In response to this, a bunch of anonymous guys on the internet copied them and posted them all over the town square, because the internet is written in ink and if you are ever a victim once in your life the internet will remind you of it forever.

Goldman Made Big Loan to Banco Espírito Santo Shortly Before Collapse

online.wsj.com — As Portuguese lender Banco Espírito Santo SA neared collapse this summer, it found a Wall Street ally to help it raise funds: Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Through a Luxembourg financing vehicle created by Goldman, Banco Espírito Santo received $835 million in July, according to a prospectus reviewed by The Wall Street Journal, a time when it was nearly impossible for the troubled lender to borrow directly in the capital markets.

The Dubious Sources of Some Supreme Court ‘Facts’

nytimes.com — WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court received more than 80 friend-of-the-court briefs in the Hobby Lobby case. Most of these filings, also called amicus briefs, were dull and repetitive recitations of familiar legal arguments. Others stood out. They presented fresh, factual information that put the case in a broader context.

"Mother of three" is how the Telegraph describes an HSBC director

A mother of three - someone who has utilised their womb thrice, no less! - is in the running to chair the BBC Trust. But how? How can this vessel of hormones and maternal instinct work in such a high position of pressure and responsibility?
