      Q: I have a contract offer for my primary residence that is about 10 times what I thought the home was worth. The county I live in is changing the zoning from agriculture residential to commercial. The entire community is most likely becoming a data center campus. If I sell the home, I would have a sizable capital gains tax to pay. I was hoping with the change of zoning designation I can convert my primary residence to a business. Then as a business I could sell the home using a 1031 like-kind exchange to roll over the entire sales proceeds into a different real estate investment. Does this sound possible and if so who should I get to help me?

      The city of Philadelphia issued an apology more than four decades after unethical medical experiments were allowed to be performed on mostly Black inmates at the city's since closed Holmesburg Prison from the 1950s to the 1970s.

The University of Pennsylvania issued an apology last year and removed Kligman's name from several honorifics. Kligman, who would go on to pioneer Retin-A, died in 2010.

      Georgia Republican Senate candidate Herschel Walker is remaining defiant after reports alleging he encouraged and paid for a woman's 2009 abortion — and later fathered a child with her. Digging in on his denials of reporting by The Daily Beast, Walker, a football icon turned celebrity politician, blamed the stories Thursday on Democrats and their “desperation.” The Daily Beast has reported that a woman Walker was dating had an abortion that he encouraged and paid for. After Walker's vehement denials, she spoke to the news outlet again identifying herself as the mother of one of Walker's children. As a Senate candidate, Walker has backed a national ban on abortion without any exceptions.

      Diverted ambulances, cancer treatment delayed and electronic health records offline are just some of ripple effects of an apparent cyberattack on a major nonprofit health system that disrupted operations throughout the U.S. While CommonSpirit Health confirmed it experienced an ”“IT security issue” earlier this week, the company has remained mum when pressed for more details about the scope of the attack. Despite the lingering questions, the incident underscores the growing concerns surrounding ransomware attacks on health care systems with patient care at stake. Brett Callow, a threat analyst with cybersecurity provider Emsisoft, says the incident could be “the most significant attack on the health care sector to date.”
