TECHNOLOGY & MEDIA:

NERDIST

NEW YORK â¿¿ There's no media entity more pleased to be called an empire than Nerdist, the ever-proliferating factory of earnest pop culture enthusiasm. The unabashed sincerity of Nerdist founder Chris Hardwick has proved infectious, growing what began as a little weekly comedy podcast into a network of 21 podcasts, 27 YouTube shows and a growing TV presence. But as Nerdist expands, adapting a hydra-headed digital empire into more traditional, mainstream media poses challenges for the Nerdist realm. By Entertainment Writer Jake Coyle.

â¿¿ SKOREA-EARNS-SAMSUNG ELECTRONICS â¿¿ Samsung, the world's largest technology company by revenue, expects record earnings for the fourth quarter as shoppers continue to snap up its smartphones and tablets.

INTERNATIONAL:

IRAN-MEDICAL CRUNCH

TEHRAN â¿¿ For the first time in more than a decade, the black market pharmaceutical peddlers are back on Nasser Khosrow Street near Tehran's main bazaar. "Medicine, medicine," the street dealers shout. "Any kind you want." For Iranians who can afford the prices, such underground channels are the only way to get needed drugs as Western sanctions have indirectly limited normal supplies to hospitals and pharmacies. By Nasser Karimi.

GUATEMALA-PRIVATE CITY

GUATEMALA CITY â¿¿ Guatemalan developers are building a nearly independent city for the wealthy on the outskirts of the chaotic, crime-marred capital. At its heart is a tidy, wall-ringed downtown of apartments, boutiques and cafes. Backers promote it as a safe haven in a troubled country. Critics say it's a blow to hopes of saving the traditional heart of Guatemala City. By Romina Ruiz-Goiriena.
