Produced by Paul LaRosa, Murray Weiss and Sabina Castelfranco In June 2000, Enrico "Chico" Forti, an Italian television producer and former windsurfing champion was convicted and sentenced to life without parole in the 1998 killing of Dale Pike, an Australian who had traveled to Miami to meet with Forti about business deal. Few Americans have ever heard his name, but as "48 Hours" correspondent Erin Moriarty reports, in Italy, his case has been compared to that of Amanda Knox -- a foreign national living abroad convicted of a murder with very little evidence. A MURDER IN MIAMI The 1998 murder of Dale Pike has always been and is, to this day, a true murder mystery. Brad Pike is Dale's younger brother. Brad Pike: Always questions, always questions … I also don't think I'll ever know the truth. What is known is that someone shot Dale Pike twice in the back of the head with a .22 and left his naked body on a quiet stretch of beach on Virginia Key, minutes from Key … [Read more...] about The case against Enrico Forti: Is he the Italian Amanda Knox?

Advertisement Supported by When Apple introduced the Apple Watch five years ago, the whole tech industry began to flirt with style. But interest in wearables has cooled. ByVanessa Friedman March 25, 2019 A sudden, striking influx of glamorous non-techies at a tech hub in California. Grumbles about NDAs. Excited, surreptitious glances. Gossip about disruption. A drumroll for a hitherto hush-hush, industry-upsetting announcement. Sound familiar? This is not a description of what is happening today at the Apple event in Cupertino, as the company unveils its new video service and television shows (among other things).

Crystal City, a clutch of ’80s-vintage office buildings just outside of Washington, D.C., feels like the polar opposite of a hip tech hub like Boston or San Francisco. Its well-manicured streets swell with government workers at lunchtime, but are largely deserted after work. There aren’t any brick-and-beam rehabbed warehouses — like Amazon’s new outpost in Fort Point — only rows of boxy midrise office buildings in the grim style of Brutalist architecture. Empty storefronts are everywhere, while a vast subterranean mall beneath them sits at least half-vacant. And forget about trendy retailers or upscale food halls.No, there is nothing “cool” about Crystal City. … [Read more...] about Amazon’s new second home?

Chance favors the prepared mind. —Louis Pasteur James Allison looks like a cross between Jerry Garcia and Ben Franklin, and he’s a bit of both, an iconoclastic scientist and musician known for good times and great achievements. He also doesn’t always answer his phone, especially when the call arrives at 5 am, from an unfamiliar number. So when the Nobel Prize committee tried to reach Allison a few weeks ago to inform him he’d been awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize in medicine, Allison ignored the call. Finally, at 5:30 am, Allison’s son dialed in on a familiar number to deliver the news. The calls have not stopped since. Allison’s breakthrough was the discovery of a sort of secret handshake that cancer uses to evade the immune system, and a means to block that handshake—what the Nobel committee hailed as “a landmark in our fight against cancer,” which has “revolutionized cancer treatment, fundamentally changing the way we view … [Read more...] about Meet the Carousing, Harmonica-Playing Texan Who Just Won a Nobel for his Cancer Breakthrough
