1. Analysis: Competition Intensifying, But FedEx Still Protected for Now -

The package shipment startup where Matthew Hertz works as director of operations is perfectly tailored to the digital age.

2. Twitter's 140 Character Limit – Time to Ditch It? -

NEW YORK (AP) – Many Twitter users – and more importantly, the billions more who don't use Twitter – feel constrained by the company's somewhat archaic 140-

3. Whole Foods Exec: No Tattoo Shops Planned for New Chain Yet -

NEW YORK (AP) – Whole Foods is prepping for the launch of its hipster new grocery chain. But shoppers won't be able to get a tattoo with their cheese just yet.

The company says its "365" chain will have a minimalist layout, affordable prices and third-party vendors who set up shop inside the stores.

4. State Halts City Board From Issuing Bonds -

5. Last Word: The Zoo's Proposal, Health and Ed In Limbo and Annexation's Effect -

A busy weekend on several fronts not the least of which was Overton Park and the Greensward controversy.
The Greensward itself was pretty subdued on a chilly Saturday.
The action was to be found in an email the zoo sent out Saturday making some proposals and offering some thoughts on the traffic and parking study the Overton Park Conservancy released last week.
Here is our summary
of what the zoo is offering in what may be a new effort in the public discussion.
Of course, the private discussion which is the mediation effort continues. But it sounds like some of the mediation discussions may be finding their way into the public discussion.
The public discussion has been sporadically active but very muted so far. For instance there has been talk before of zoo parking on the eastern side of the park in what until recently was a city maintenance yard.
The proposal by the zoo was shot down pretty quickly because it included running a tram through the Old Forest.
But there are some scenarios that wouldn’t take such a tram through the Old Forest.
The zoo email from Saturday isn’t specific on how the folks who would park at the maintenance yard would get from there to the zoo.
Presumably that is grounds for some type of discussion.

In the first year of his first full four-year term of office as Memphis mayor, A C Wharton Jr. put his political weight behind shifting priorities at City Hall.
