(NECN) – Two Bay State casino proposals have been given the go-ahead by the Mass. Gaming Commission. Mohegan Sun and Penn State have been approved to move forward with their plans for casinos in Palmer, Mass. and Plainridge, respectively. Proposals in Raynham and Leominster also are competing for the sole slots parlor license in Massachusetts.

More blame is being assigned for the demise of former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling's 38 Studios. Rhode Island’s former head of economic development says Governor Lincoln Chafee forced the company into bankruptcy by refusing to let the company attempt to restructure its debt or raise more capital. Governor Chafe hasn't responded to those claims. 38 Studios filed for bankruptcy last year.

Adobe says hackers have stolen names and financial information of nearly three-million customers. This includes encrypted debit and credit card numbers, and other personal information. Adobe says they are working to reset passwords and notify customers who may have been affected.
