It still limps on, but the suspects behind a... destruction of $500bn in value over little more than 20 years are so many that the mystery feels like a whodunnit. Does blame start with the late Jack Welch, boss from 1981 to 2001, who created the myth that GE could walk on water? Does it belong to Jeff Immelt, his successor for 16 years, who continued to peddle that illusion even as the waters rose treacherously around his--and the company's--neck?

Doctors discovered a newDoctors are finding that some coronavirus patients start to experience hair loss weeks after their initial diagnosis. Some doctors speculate that hair loss could be the result of coronavirus-related... stress as opposed to being directly caused by the virus.

This, of course, shouldn't come as much of a surprise given how new the coronavirus is to both researchers and medical professionals.
