For Yahoo, its sale marked "an ignominious end" for a onetime internet pioneer that still has about one billion monthly users, RBC Capital Markets analyst Mark Mahaney said. But for Verizon, its $4.83 billion purchase of Yahoo boosts Verizon's ownership of news and entertainment content that it can market to its wireless or FiOS subscribers, observers said. Verizon also can leverage its massive size - the company bought another fallen star, AOL Inc., in 2015 for $4.4 billion - to boost Yahoo's share of the digital-ad business, now a distant third to Google and Facebook.

ATLANTIC CITY - Gino Iovino doubled down and risked it all on Philadelphia and Atlantic City. Where others saw gritty urban facades with little to offer, Iovino saw diamonds in the rough. First, he gambled on an Italian restaurant - Girasole Ristorante, at 13th and Locust Streets - in 1990, when there was not as much of a food scene in downtown Philadelphia. It became a hit, so he took the concept, and name, to Atlantic City two years later. Fast-forward to 2016. He's wagering again, this time on a pair of retail stores in what was once the Pier at Caesars, now called the Playground.

News tracks Dash's blog: "I've said it before and I'll say it again: BET is keeping racism and segregation alive and this past Sunday's awards show proves it," she wrote.
