Corrections & Clarifications
"Goldman Slapped" (Opening Remarks, Apr. 26 - May 2, 2010)
We were imprecise when we reported that four members of the Senate permanent subcommittee on investigations had received "substantial" donations from executives at Goldman Sachs (Opening Remarks, Apr. 26-May 2). In fact, 9 of 10 subcommittee members have received donations from Goldman, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. And we erred when we identified Senator Jon Tester (D-Mont.) as a "substantial" recipient. He received less than 7 of the 9 other members.
"Video Phones Are Coming. And This Time It's for Real" (Technology, May 3 - May 9, 2010)
"Videophones Are Coming. And This Time It's for Real" (Technology, May 3-May 9) suggested that a prototype of a new iPhone was found in a Silicon Valley bar on Apr. 18. Actually, word broke about the lost phone on Apr. 18.
"Hard Times for Star Architects" (Features, May 3 - May 9, 2010)
In "Beautiful Impossibilities" (Features, May 3-May 9), an illustration suggested that Daniel Libeskind designed the proposed One World Trade Center in New York City. Libeskind was responsible for the project's master plan, but the tower was designed by Skidmore, Owings & Merrill. Also, the story erroneously reported that Gensler's revenue fell to under $500 million in 2008. The correct year was 2009.
"Forget the DNA Sample, Get me the ID" (Politics & Policy, May 10 - May 16, 2010)
In "Forget the DNA Sample, Get me the Vehicle ID" (Politics & Policy, May 10-May 16), we erred in describing the 1993 World Trade Center bombing case. A rented Ryder truck involved in the incident was destroyed. A suspect in the case reported the vehicle stolen and was apprehended when he tried to get back a deposit.
"The Hole in High School Equivalency" (Politics & Policy, May 10 - May 16, 2010)
"The Hole in High School Equivalency" (Politics & Policy, May 10-May 16) should have credited the illustration to Topos Graphics.
