Show notes and links for September 12th

Segment 1 | Iran's 29-year-old "Blue Girl" dies: Sahar Khodayari costumed herself to blend in at a soccer match, where as a woman she was not allowed. She was caught and charged, and faced six months in prison. She self-immolated instead, and died of her injuries.

Segment 2 | Cornell University researchers think they've uncovered a problem for eligible women in the dating pool: Their potential partners aren't especially "high-quality". Are you and your significant other aligned on money issues?

Segments 3 and 4 | Emery Songer helps figure out whether California is about to break the NCAA, and listeners react.

Segment 5 | Simon Conway is live at the border with Mexico and phones in with a report. And the Pew Research Center has found that veterans in the post-9/11 are very, very different from their predecessors. The numbers will probably surprise you.

Segment 6 | 50 state attorneys general are investigating Google's "overarching control of online advertising markets and search traffic that may have led to anticompetitive behavior that harms consumers". It's an antitrust investigation, but the inquiry has demanded lots of records by October 9th. Only California and Alabama are out; the other 48 states, plus DC and Puerto Rico, are in.

Segments 7 and 8 | Iowa Democratic Party chair Troy Price previews the caucuses, teases some updates to the "virtual caucus", plans for tonight's debate, and reveals what he really thinks about crossover voters.
