NN: So much news, so little time! (Part 2)

With the International AIDS Conference beginning today, new stats from UNAIDS, new stats from the CDC, and reports on the state of AIDS among some US minority groups making waves, AIDS has been getting a ton of media coverage, and I’m very quickly getting totally swamped.  So, while I’d like to actually write about some of this stuff, here are news notes.  (Rather than giving the publication, date, and summary, like I usually do, I’m just going to give a headlines with links.)
