Today's Globe: birth video, Tufts Health Plan purchase, 'Einstein' videos

birth video150.jpgDeployed to Iraq in March, Lance Corporal Tyrelle Greene, 22, knew he would not be able to return for the birth of his first child. On Monday night, as his child was about to be born at Caritas Good Samaritan Medical Center in Brockton, Greene, in a way, was at his wife Melissa's side, linked by two-way video.

Tufts Health Plan yesterday said it bought its landmark headquarters building at 705 Mt. Auburn St. in Watertown for $85.5 million from Prospectus Inc.

Parents hoping to raise baby Einsteins by using infant educational videos instead might be creating baby Homer Simpsons, according to researchers.
