Workin’ 9-5 With an Escrow Agent

My good friends at Private Label Surrogacy recently asked me to help educate their prospective clients and gestational carriers about escrow agents.  What is it that escrow agents do and why is it important?  Trust me that you don’t really want me to tell you the specific ins and outs of my day at Stork Escrow unless you want to fall asleep from boredom in the next few minutes.  My life as an escrow agent “workin’ 9-5, what a way to make a livin’” (as Dolly sings it), is not the subject of ...

Locals volunteer to be infected with coronavirus to hasten vaccine development

In 1796, English physician Edward Jenner noted that milkmaids who caught cowpox from their cattle seemed to escape a much deadlier scourge: smallpox. So the doctor collected pus from a cowpox blister on one of those milkmaids, rounded up his gardener’s 8-year-old son and rubbed the gunk into a fresh cut on the boy’s skin. The lad developed a trying but not lethal cowpox infection, and once he recovered, the doctor repeated the exercise — but this time, with the real thing. Smallpox. The boy did ...
