Editor's note: This report contains accounts of rape, violence and other disturbing events.

Sex trafficking wasn't a major concern in the early 1980s, when Beth Jacobs was a teenager. If you were a prostitute, the thinking went, it was your choice.

Jacobs thought that too, right up until she came to, on the lot of a dark truck stop one night. She says she had asked a friendly-seeming man for a ride home that afternoon.

The Boston Citgo sign, all 3,600 square LED feet of which has served as the backdrop to Red Sox games since 1965, is now officially a "pending landmark."

Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dalí spent much of the 1940s in the U.S., avoiding World War II and its aftermath. He was a well-known fixture on the art scene in Monterey, Calif. — and that's where the largest collection of Dalí's work on the West Coast is now open to the public.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

NPR's business news starts with billion-dollar paychecks.

(SOUNDBITE OF THEME MUSIC)

INSKEEP: Institutional Investor's Alpha, a publication focusing on hedge funds, releases its annual Rich List today.

And that list estimates the world's top 25 fund managers who earned a combined $14.4 billion last year - which is down slightly from the year before.

DAVID GREENE, HOST:

Topping this list is David Tepper, who took home an estimated $2.2 billion in 2012. Now let's put that in perspective. That's more than one hundred times the salary of Goldman Sachs' Lloyd Blankfein, the highest paid banking CEO.

INSKEEP: Now Mr. Tepper's Appaloosa Management earned his clients an average of 30 percent returns in their investments - well above the six percent average of the stock market. Most hedge funds failed to hit that level last year. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
