The Congressman is receiving intensive medical treatment at a residential treatment facility for a mood disorder. He is responding positively to treatment and is expected to make a full recovery.
A statement from the office of Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. • Regarding the congressman’s condition, which has been shrouded in secrecy since he took leave from office a month ago. Jackson’s medical leave wasn’t announced until weeks after he left, and his condition has been described using vague wording ever since, causing an outcry from other representatives asking for information. “Mood disorder” is as specific as they’ve gotten.

Congressman Jackson’s medical condition is more serious than we thought … Recently, we have been made aware that he has grappled with certain physical and emotional ailments privately for a long period of time.
Frank Watkins, Spokesman for Rep. Jesse Jackson Jr. • In a statement, given to the Chicago Sun-Times, explaining the Illinois Democrat’s extended absence from the House of Representatives. Prior to the announcement, Rep.

Jackson’s office on whether or not this will lead to his resignation and/or an end to his bid for reelection. source (viafollow)

Apple’s stock not reacting well to Steve Jobs’ medical leave

  • 5.2%
    decline
    the drop in Apple’s stock in the wake of yesterday’s announcement that Steve Jobs took medical leave
  • $19
    billion
    the amount of market value that was erased in the wake of Jobs’ temporary departure  source

» Not enough to kill their swagga: Apple shares are still up 66 percent over the last twelve months, and have a higher market capitalization than any other technology stock. So, even without Jobs, they’re still in a good financial position.

Stock futures market not liking Steve Jobs being sick again
Stock markets don’t have hearts. They’re giant money machines that react to news in callous, cold ways that don’t appreciate the nuances of a person’s achievements. Which is why, when someone like Steve Jobs takes a medical leave of absence – which isn’t the big Apple announcement everyone had been expecting (wait a second, this isn’t shaped like an iPad 2!) – stocks go haywire. Fortunately, they timed the news on MLK day, so the New York stock market gets a bit of a breather. But other markets are still open today, and the futures market isn’t liking the news either. Some quick numbers for you kids:
7.5% Apple’s stock dip on the German stock market today after Jobs’ announcement
0.9%stock futures dip on the NASDAQ – THE ENTIRE THING – this morning after the announcement
0.3% stock futures dip on the S&P 500 – ALSO THE ENTIRE THING – after he dropped the bomb source
