2. Business: Progress of BRICS & New Development Bank
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Rarely has an acronym led such a charmed life as Brics. Casually invented by former Goldman Sachs economist and Bloomberg View columnist Jim O'Neill to label emerging markets of promise, it actually brought together leaders from the disparate countries of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. The New Development Bank, headquartered in Shanghai, would finance infrastructure and development projects. To read the full report, go to our NEWS DESK link. (IOL)

8. Travel: Images of Lake Tahoe
= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Lake Tahoe is quite the sight anytime of year. As traveler Grace Greenwood noted in 1873, the lake "is an emerald on the brow of the mountain." This splendid digital collection from the University of Nevada-Reno brings together hundreds of photographs documenting this unique body of water that sits on the California and Nevada border. All told, there are over 1,000 items here that document the lake's transformation from placid and pristine to buzzing with tourism activity by the mid 20th century. Along the way, visitors can view items by date of creation, category, and photographer. Keyword searches can be quite revealing and first-time visitors might like to start with "beach," "casino," or "Emerald Bay." Visit this site.

Initial Public Offerings ~ by Arid Khurshed 

An initial public offering (IPO) - the occasion when a firm’s shares are issued to the public for the first time - is one of the most exciting events in the life of a company, providing new opportunities for the business, its managers and for investors. IPOs thus attract a lot of attention from stock market researchers, academics and investors seeking to understand more about how they work and how the shares of IPO companies perform once they are listed.
