Link roundup

1.  60 Minutes:

"60 Minutes" has learned that members of New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez's inner circle in February obtained and leaked documents that implicated Milwaukee Brewers slugger Ryan Braun as well as his own Yankees teammate, catcher Francisco Cervelli, in the doping scandal that has enveloped Major League Baseball.
2. WSJ:
Top chefs Susan Feniger and Mary Sue Milliken have a talent for collaboration. They have a business partnership that has endured more than 30 years, built on the success of their Border Grill group of high-end Mexican restaurants and their frequent television appearances.
Also, their homes were designed by the same architect...who they've both been married to.

3.  Forbes:
At 40 [Isabel] Dos Santos is Africa’s only female billionaire, and also the continent’s youngest...

For President Dos Santos it’s a foolproof way to extract money from his country, while keeping a putative arm’s-length distance away. If the 71-year-old president gets overthrown, he can reclaim the assets from his daughter. If he dies in power, she keeps the loot in the family. Isabel may decide, if she is generous, to share some of it with her seven known half-siblings. Or not. The siblings are known around Angola for despising one another.
