Huffington Post - over 3 years
Although wildfires are a naturally occurring process, climate change might be causing California blazes to become more prevalent, last longer and cover more ground. The 2013 Rim Fire has come dangerously close to some of America's greatest treasures within Yosemite National Park. Here are a few reasons why Yosemite is too important to go up in flames.

Bloomberg Businessweek is out with a great profile of the company and its creation by Mark Getty and Jonathan Klein. One passage was particularly eye catching: Tired of crafting deals for others, the pair came up with strict criteria for their own dream business. It had to be global, operating in a fragmented industry ready for consolidation, and on the cusp of change. And the less risk the better. The two weren't necessarily out to start a stock photo business. But they saw that it had the above characteristics, and followed one simple, consistent strategy as they grew the business.
