It’s an autumn of celebrating for ANPR!
In September, Slate celebrated its 20th anniversary—with a toast to the next 20—with a star-studded (literally) party at One World Trade Center.
Here’s who showed up. See the New Yorker for a write-up of what it was like listening to Slate’s four editors-in-chief discuss the past and present of the publication. Plus, Julia Turner on looking forward to the future of Slate, and NiemanLab on Slate’s refusal to chase digital media trends over the decades.
Meanwhile, STAT is celebrating its first birthday today, having officially reported from the frontiers of health and medicine for a year.
Here are just some of the things we learned from STAT this year:
–It’s possible to get your ENTIRE genome sequenced. It just takes a while. And a lot of money.
–EpiPen maker Mylan did more than make life-saving medicine inaccessible to millions of Americans; it violated antitrust laws, too.
–”Detox water,” the toast of the Kardashians, isn’t all it’s cracked up to be.
–Pressuring doctors to prescribe addictive pain drug OxyContin through bribes of sweet treats? Sadly, it’s been done.
