Purpose of review: Many patients with psoriatic arthritis (PsA) have additional medical problems that can have an impact on morbidity and mortality. The goal of this review is to summarize the available evidence to date on the association of medical comorbidities with PsA and the implications these comorbidities have on prognosis, therapy selection and treatment response.

A lucky few can say their work helped spur a fundamental shift in the economic model of modern societies. If all goes well, Robin Chase may get to do it twice. A decade before Airbnb and Uber, Chase helped kickstart the "collaborative economy" by co-founding Zipcar, which became the world's largest car-sharing service.

Their technology powers mesh networks, which provide a new way for people and things (devices, cars, appliances, etc.) to connect to each other and to the internet. The holy grail: ubiquitous no-cost wireless internet access that isn't controlled by the telecom giants. Fred Wilson, one of the most i...
