Virginia Johnson, renowned sex researcher, dies

Thursday, 25 July 2013 10:32 Published in Local News

     ST. LOUIS (AP) - Virginia Johnson, part of the husband-wife research team that transformed the study of sex in the 1960s, has died.

   Her son, Scott Johnson, says his mother died Wednesday at a St. Louis assisted living center. She was 88.

   Johnson was a twice-divorced mother in her 30s when she went job-hunting at Washington University in St. Louis in the late 1950s to support her young family while she pursued a college degree.

   She soon became an assistant to obstetrician-gynecologist William Masters, and later his lover and co-collaborator on a large-scale human sexuality experiments.

   Their books, 1966's "Human Sexual Response" and 1970's "Human Sexual Inadequacy," were best-sellers.

   They married in 1971 but divorced after 20 years. The Masters and Johnson Institute in St. Louis closed in 1994. Masters died in 2001.

 

Reports circulating STL's Hardees for sale

Thursday, 25 July 2013 08:34 Published in Local News

The St Louis Business Journal reports that CKE Inc., the company that owns St. Louis based Hardee's and California based Carl's Jr. chains, reportedly is exploring a potential sale a year after postponing its initial public offering.

The company is working with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. on the early stages of a sale process that could value the company at more than $1.7 billion, sources told Reuters.

Carpinteria, Calif.-based CKE, which is led by CEO Andy Puzder, was taken private by Apollo Global Management in 2010 in a deal valued at close to $700 million. The company had planned to go public again last August in a $213 million IPO, but opted to hold off, citing market conditions.
