Google’s New CFO Ruth Porat Is Getting PAID


Google snatched Morgan Stanley exec Ruth Porat to be their new CFO, and holy crap is she getting paid. Her yearly salary is $650,000, but she’ll get a $5 million signing bonus after a year with Google, a $25 million stock grant that she’ll receive incrementally over two years, plus a $40 million stock grant every other year over four years — so basically, if she stays at Google for two years, she’ll receive $71,300,000. WAY TO GET PAID, RUTH. [CNN]

The outlook is bleak for the CPD; one of the very few bright spots is that they are starting to test more of their backlogged rape kits. [CBS]

Here’s a review of four lady-friendly, feminist video games: PunchDrunk’s Regicide, an 8-bit with a heroine; the new Lara Croft, in which the title character has a personality and intellect and dresses appropriately for her adventures; zombie game The Last of Us, which casts a savvy teenage girl as its protagonist; and Gone Home, a mystery game with both a heroine and a riot grrl soundtrack.
