As Brett Maas content team we get to see some of the really generous and nice things Brett does to give back. One of them is when he received and email from a friend and it states…
Once again, I am asking for your help. For the seventh year in a row, I am riding in the Trek 100, a Ride for Hope.
Please consider joining the fight against childhood cancer and related blood disorders. I am riding in the Trek 100 Ride for Hope which supports the MACC Fund. This is a ride truly for hope. Proceeds from this ride will help support critical research efforts in the search for new cures and in the eradication of childhood cancer and related blood disorders. The overall cure rate stands at 80%, but with your help, we will get to 100% — one pedal at a time.
Sam, my son, was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in January 2009. Because of the efforts of the MACC Fund, the survival rate for Sam has increased to 80% from 15% when the MACC Fund began over 30 years ago.
Needless to say Brett was quick to help support a friend, his son, and a great cause. Also, if you read this and they are still raising money to help cure childhood cancer you can donate here.

Acquisition Extends Yahoo!’s Audience Targeting Capabilities and Premium Content Supply
By Himank Sharma
(Reuters) – Yahoo Inc will pay $270 million for interclick inc as it tries to revive its ailing online advertising business, even as the search and advertising giant continues to scout for potential bidders.
Sunnyvale, California-based Yahoo is paying $9 per share, or about a 22 percent premium, for the online advertising technology firm.
Yahoo shares slid 5 percent in morning trade on Nasdaq.
Yahoo, plagued by stagnating growth in its U.S. business and a rift with key Chinese partner Alibaba, had fired its chief executive in September and has been exploring strategic alternatives — including a potential sale.
“Yahoo does not have much leverage right now, they got no CEO, everyone knows they are up for sale … so how much pricing power does that give them? (with potential buyers),” BGC Partners analyst Colin Gillis said.
Among the parties interested in Yahoo are private equity firms Silver Lake, TPG Capital, Bain Capital, Blackstone, Kohlberg Kravis Roberts, Providence Equity Partners, Hellman & Friedman, Carlyle Group, and Russian technology investment firm DST Global, apart from rivals Microsoft Corp and Google Inc.
“It’s not a transformational acquisition, but it helps Yahoo in a market they are not strong in … they have to take some steps to keep pushing forward.”
Interclick, with annual revenue of about $102 million, helps advertisers identify online target audience through its open segment manager analytics platform.
Yahoo said it expects to use interclick’s offerings for its own display advertising business.
The crowded advertising technology sector is dominated by a slew of small players and start-ups but has seen some of the biggest deals over the years. Google bought DoubleClick, in 2007 for $3.1 billion while eBay acquired GSI Commerce for $2.4 billion earlier this year.
GCA Savvian Advisors LLC acted as the lead financial adviser to interclick in connection with the transaction.
Yahoo shares fell to $14.04 in morning trade On Monday.

Unemployment rates are falling in most metro areas across the country, suggesting that recent nationwide gains in hiring are widespread and not limited to a few healthy regions.
More than three-quarters of the nation’s 372 largest metro areas reported lower unemployment rates in February than the previous month, the Labor Department said Wednesday. That’s the most to report a decline since September.
And more than 300 areas added jobs in February compared to the previous month. That’s a much better showing than January, when most metro areas lost jobs.
The gains “are definitely becoming a lot more broad-based,” said Marisa DiNatale, a regional economist at Moody’s Analytics.
The metro areas that posted the biggest job gains in February, compared with the previous month, were: Los Angeles-Long Beach, with a gain of 53,600; New York City-Northern New Jersey, a gain of 18,500; and Miami-Fort Lauderdale, up 16,800.
Many big cities also saw steep drops in unemployment from January to February. The rate dropped from 9.3 percent to 8.8 percent in Phoenix; from 7.3 percent to 6.9 percent in the Austin, Texas metro area; and from 11.5 percent to 10.6 percent in Jacksonville, Fla.
