Southwest Florida roundup

Blocking big brother

Art Levy | 5/28/2014

When Jeffrey Sisk learned in the wake of the Edward Snowden scandal that the federal government was getting easy access to the internet activity of Americans, his first reaction was anger. He created a search engine called Zeekly.com. that, unlike Google and many other search engines, does not store the metadata of its users.

Also in this regional roundup, we look at people to know including Casey Suarez, Richard Schuler, Katharine Eagan, Philip R. Hale, Brian Lamb, Julie Townsend and Michele S. Wasserlauf. Business briefs with companies and cities in the news include: Baker Parts, Port Manatee, Naples Pier, Vology, Largo Medical Center, TECO, HSN, DOW Electronics, KPS Capital Partners, Anchor Glass Container, the Tampa Bay Times, Evansville Western Railway and we offer a profile of Residential Acoustics.

What your doctor won’t disclose
What your doctor won’t disclose

Wouldn’t you want to know if your doctor was a paid spokesman for a drug company? Or held personal beliefs incompatible with the treatment you want? Right now, in the US at least, your doctor simply doesn’t have to tell you about that.
