Most visits last no more than an hour, and recovery times are equally swift. It's enough to make a scalpel seem downright crude. So who's shooting what where? More

The latest wrinkle in cleaning up social-media pages
Crain's New York Business
Lisa Rosenstein, a new employee at executive recruiter Nexxes Group, recently snapped a quick photo with her soon-to-be boss, Sandra DiFiglia, in Central Park using her iPhone.
