Episode Teaser Image 
Episode Description 
The non-profit makes a deal with Getty to stock more pictures of empowered women. We look at how stock photos have taken over the image world, what the move can mean, and what it can’t do (change needs to come from the demand side, and not just the supply side). In other familiar pictures, AOL CEO Tim Armstrong is in the news again, having delivered yet another mea culpa related to his fast mouth and poor choice of words. How many passes does the man get before he loses his job? And, in medical news, rather than getting paid based on how many tests they do, but on whether their patients get better and stay better. So healthcare providers are looking for comparatively inexpensive ways to improve outcomes. Enter the “lay community health worker.”
