NEW YORK - Anthony Weiner found himself caught in another sexting scandal Tuesday like the one that destroyed his congressional career, but stood side-by-side with his wife to say he won't drop out of the race for mayor of New York. "This is entirely behind me," Weiner said at a news conference, hours after the gossip website The Dirty posted text messages and a crotch shot that it said the former congressman exchanged with a woman after he left office.

Photos of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev by a state police officer give a glimpse into the end of an episode that kept the city and its suburbs on edge. The images, the first of Tsarnaev from that night in April, were released to Boston Magazine on Thursday by a state police photographer angry about a Rolling Stone cover shot of Tsarnaev and hoping to counter what he said was the music magazine's glamorization of the terror suspect.

Some innovations are born as ideas but have to wait for technology to catch up. Witness the tablet computer - a struggling concept long before it was Apple's megasuccessful iPad. Others are seize-the-moment phenomena - creations that rely on a confluence of events, such as technological advances coinciding with market shifts. Witness Curalate, the latest star to emerge from Philadelphia's burgeoning start-up scene. At noon Thursday, Mayor Nutter will visit Curalate's Walnut Street headquarters for a ceremonial ribbon-cutting to celebrate its swift growth into a business with 21 employees and 300 client companies, in what an aide calls "our ongoing effort to make Philadelphia a home to start-ups and entrepreneurs.
