In fact, one major shareholder says Dimon is just the sort of fellow needed to lead the company through this crisis.

Whole Paycheck: Upscale grocer Whole Foods broke ground Monday on a new store in one of America's most economically distressed major cities, Detroit.

Keeping up with the Kardashians: Mason, which happens to be the name of reality TV star Kourtney Kardashian's young son, jumped 10 spots to No. 2 on the annual list of most popular names for baby boys.
