Share Now on:
China is seeing shades of Occupy Wall Street today as protesters gather in Hong Kong. We talk to Juliana Liu about potential economic effects. Plus: two more casinos closed in Atlantic City this weekend, and 5,000 people lost their jobs. We look at the suffering gaming industry in a city that may need to reinvent itself. Finally, most cases of food-borne illness go unreported, so Chicago health officials are turning to Twitter, with a bot that scans for complaints of food poisoning stemming from area restaurants.
