№ 1. Chinese police save hundreds of babies from online trading racket
China cracked down on FOUR child-trafficking rings. FOUR. This makes my stomach sick. More than a thousand people were arrested, for trading babies on websites and via instant-messaging. So thankful for all the diligent law enforcement that worked tirelessly to catch these animals.

№ 5. Abercrombie To Cut Prices As Downward Spiral Continues
This caught my eye because my daughter recently informed me she is a tween. Yikes. Anyway – at least when I was a teenager, Abercrombie was IT. If you were stylish (which I wasn’t) Abercrombie was the brand to wear. There was no way that my parents were going to shell out over $100 for jeans so I just didn’t get to wear the “cool” clothes. Thankfully I didn’t care much, but several of my friends thought their life was over if their closet wasn’t adequately stuffed with the “it” brand. As an adult, I am not terribly surprised to find out that the brand is quite skeevy. Their falling prices are an indicator of paying the price for scandal, discrimination, “board room fights” etc. Bad business apparently does catch up with companies sometimes, who knew?
