Japan’s Disaster and Your Wallet – Obviously this is a small concern when looking to the disaster in Japan. CBS writes about some of the international financial impact of the disaster.

The Organized Heart – Becky Pliego has a review of Staci Eastin’s book The Organized Heart. “Be encouraged, my friends, to read this book before the other one that teaches you ‘how to organize your closet in 24 days and live happily ever after’.”

Jerusalem Bomb Victim – “Mary Gardner, the British woman killed in the Jerusalem bus bombing, was an evangelical Christian who had been living in Togo, west Africa, translating the New Testament into the local Ifé language.” The Guardian memorializes her.

New York Times – This article tells why the New York Times pay model is bound to fail. “The New York Times has shot itself in the foot with this paywall. It’s easy to defeat because frankly, that’s the way it was built. I want the Times to succeed. But if there is any chance of success, the company will have to drastically rethink its subscription service.”
