Yahoo posts its third quarter earnings today and the company CEO Marissa Meyer looks set to provide new information on how the company will evaluate possible acquisitions and cost cutting measures. Meyer has come under increasing pressure of late. What does Meyer need to do to keep her investors happy and is her strategy working? And the designer Oscar de la Renta passed away yesterday at the age of 82. We speak with Vanessa Friedman, fashion critic and fashion director for the New York Times, about de la Renta’s career. Plus, we always hear that hosting a major sporting event, like the Olympics or the World Cup, will mean bigger revenues for host cities. But there are costs as well. Security, disruptions of traffic and daily routines, and even the price tag of a victory parade eat away at that extra revenue. We tally up the potential costs and benefits of baseball greatness.
