David R Smith Rumored to be Penn State's pick for president, an offer withdrawn this week. He has been placed on leave by his current employer, while "compensation issues" are investigated. Upstate paid Smith $363,537 in 2012. In addition, he was paid $268,923 last year by the SUNY Research Foundation. Money from that foundation is often used to supplement pay for faculty and staff on SUNY campuses. He also receives a monthly housing allowance of $5,000 and a car for official state business.

21st Century Fox 21st Century Fox was created as a firm separate from News Corp this year, and holds most of Rupert Murdoch's holdings in television and film.

Booz & Company "Booz & Company, post separation from the government business (now know as Booz Allen Hamilton or BAH), never quite made it as a strategic consultancy - lost significant ground to McKinsey & Company, Boston Consulting Group, Bain. However the separation was inevitable because of two very different business models especially in terms of client acquisition and retention. Booz & Company will lose any uniqueness it possessed if it becomes part of PWC - it will be diluted and become insignificant in the context of the generalist and multifunctional behemoth that is its potential new parent." http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2013/10/30/pr...

Laurene Powell Jobs Ms. Powell Jobs has a net worth estimated at $11.5 billion, according to Bloomberg, most of it in shares of the Walt Disney Company. Mr. Jobs helped found the animation studio Pixar, which Disney acquired in 2006 and paid for in stock. With 131 million shares, worth about $8.7 billion, the Laurene Powell Jobs Trust is Disney’s largest shareholder with a 7.3 percent stake in the company, and she has benefited from the stock having more than doubled since her husband died in October 2011. http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/17/busines...
