New family softly launches Portfolio

The American Business Journals quietly kicked up its work on the now-online-only Portfolio, a business magazine that until this spring was part of the Conde Nast organization.

J. Jennings Moss
, the former deputy editor and new editor, announced the start, though some postings had continued even after one part of the Advance Publications family had pulled the plug. (Portfolio had posts about the death of the chairman of the business journals and his son stepping into the top role.)

We're promised that the new Portfolio will "dig deeper into selected industries—health care, technology, banking and finance, advertising and marketing, media, aviation, and more—and will present a wider range of stories from across the nation."

The looks at media include the new Pressed blog by Matt Haber (see the latest posts on Michael Jackson's conservative benefactor and Hip-Hop is not Dead-- he actually first posted July 31) and Numberology, "a fun interactive look at a number in the news.

Heavy Doses by Brett Chase tackles the business of health care in posts such as "Insurers pass the buck."
