Since the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, making video surveillance a $3.2 billion market in the U.S. by the end of 2007, according to the Security Industry Association. IMS Research, a market research firm, estimated that more than 1.1 million security cameras were sold globally through retail channels in 2010. (Source patriotledger.com)

Wrongful death claims kept open in Colo. theater shootings - landowner must guard against dangerous conditions  A federal judge on Wednesday declined to dismiss wrongful death and liability claims filed against the company that owns the Colorado movie theater where 12 people were shot to death last summer. Cinemark USA filed a motion in federal court in February arguing the lawsuits did not show the company was liable under the Colorado Premises Liability Act, which covers slip-and-fall lawsuits and other claims against landowners. But Judge R. Brooke Johnson ruled the claims filed under the act could move forward. "The landowner must guard against dangerous conditions on their property, and in this case the shooter is not the dangerous condition," said Habas, a former Denver judge. "The dangerous condition is an unlocked and unmonitored exit door. (Source Associated Press)

Multi-Agency Investigation Brings Down Retail Theft Ring Totaling Nearly $100,000


TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Law enforcement officers with multiple agencies arrested eight people for their involvement in an organized retail theft ring totaling nearly $100,000. According to the multi-agency investigation, the ring targeted Walgreens Pharmacies, CVS Pharmacies, Publix Supermarkets, and Winn Dixie Supermarkets, stealing and then reselling over-the-counter medicines and high value health and beauty products. Items stolen by the theft ring included Abreva, Advil, Aleve, Align, Allegra, Claritin, Motrin, Mucinex, Oil of Olay, Pepcid, Prevacid, Prilosec, Releev, Rogaine, Senokot, Tylenol, Zantac, Zegerid, and Zyrtec.

“Organized retail theft is a $30 billion industry nationally, and it costs both businesses and consumers,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi. “Thanks to the hard work of each agency involved in this investigation, the eight people involved in this ring will now be prosecuted by my Office of Statewide Prosecution and brought to justice.”

The investigation began in April 2012 after retailers noticed an increase in theft of over-the-counter medicines and other high value health and beauty products. Walgreens Organized Retail Crimes Investigations, CVS Organized Retail Crimes Investigations and Publix Organized retail Crimes Investigations provided substantial resources and assistance to investigators.

“This complex investigation required coordination between state and local law enforcement, along with corporate security, to bring this ring down,” said Florida Department of Law Enforcement Commissioner Gerald Bailey. “I am proud of the dedication of investigators and analysts who aggressively pursued this case.”

A joint investigation by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Tampa and Miami Regional Operations Centers, Homeland Security Investigations, Broward County Sheriff’s Office, Aventura Police Department, Lauderhill Police Department, Sweetwater Police Department and Doral Police Department led to the arrest of the eight suspects who are all charged with organized retail theft.

The following suspects have been arrested:
 

Adriana Amanollahi, 43, dealing in stolen property (2 counts), conspiracy to deal in stolen property (1 count)

Jose Antonio Alvarez, 51, dealing in stolen property (2 counts), conspiracy to deal in stolen property (1 count), retail theft; more than one location in 48 hour period (2 counts), conspiracy to commit retail theft (2 counts), grand theft, over $300 but less than $5000 (1 count), conspiracy to commit grand theft (1 count)

Karen Ann Ramirez-Torres, 50, retail theft; more than one location in 48 hour period (1 count), conspiracy to commit retail theft (1 count)

Triana Edna Cockran, 23, retail theft; more than one location in 48 hour period (1 count), conspiracy to commit retail theft (1 count)

Judith Ann Wimbley, 50, grand theft, over $300 but less than $5000 (1 count), conspiracy to commit grand theft (1 count)

James Henry Chick, Jr., 27, retail theft; more than one location in 48 hour period (1 count)

Kimberly Nicole Chick, 24, retail theft; more than one location in 48 hour period (1 count)

Gary Wayne Sheerer, Jr., 31, retail theft; more than one location in 48 hour period (1 count)

Attorney General Bondi’s Office of Statewide Prosecution will prosecute the case. This legislative session, Attorney General Bondi is working with the Florida Legislature on a bill that would strengthen law enforcement’s and prosecutors’ ability to charge and prosecute cases of organized retail theft.

Axonify Springs into 2013 with Striking Momentum


Pilot Projects with World-Class Leaders Accompanied by Industry Wide Recognition
Generate Strong Momentum for the Next Generation eLearning Provider


WATERLOO, ON – April 16, 2013 - Axonify Inc. today announced substantial momentum heading into the year. After striking several high profile pilot projects with a number of world-class brands, the next generation eLearning solution provider added yet another notable industry recognition.

“The signing of pilot projects with leading brands such as Bayer CropScience, Bloomingdale’s, Capital BlueCross, Syngenta and Ethicon, a Johnson & Johnson company signifies not only the impact but also the variety of applications for our solution.” said Carol Leaman, President & CEO of Axonify. “Our platform provides a learning experience that is personalized, fun and rewarding for employees, and maximizes corporate investment in training, driving bottom line results and changing company culture.”

As leaders in their respective industries, each organization will be assessing the degree to which Axonify increases the retention and application of employee learning through the continuous delivery of personalized, bite-sized content.

In addition, Axonify has taken the corporate eLearning industry by storm, winning multiple awards for its unique platform, including the Impact99 HR Trailblazers Award, Fortune Magazine’s Startup Idol, Bersin By Deloitte’s WhatWorks® Delivering Innovation Award and most recently qualifying as a finalist in EdTech Digest’s Cool Tool Awards. Combining gamification with brain science, the platform is distinct in its ability to drive knowledge retention while combining:

Personalization: No other eLearning solution offers truly individualized training allowing each employee to follow his or her own path. Questions and content are automatically tailored to each individual, based on their role, learning style and knowledge. Axonify continually analyzes what every employee does and doesn’t remember, identifying and filling knowledge gaps. Questions are repeated in different ways until a high level of retention is achieved.

Fun & Rewards: Axonify uses game mechanics to deliver questions in interesting, fun and engaging ways. Our learning games not only increase participation, but also accelerate employee learning and initiative.

Measurability: Axonify is the only solution that is able to tie training success to specific financial outcomes. With deep analytics, we are able to correlate participation levels and question success by person, location, job title and other criteria. Results can also be tied to other key metrics, such as safety incidents, shrink and revenue.

Flexibility: With Axonify it is easy for organizations to update and manage content, allowing them to quickly respond and target immediate and evolving learning needs. The platform can also accommodate location or role specific content.

“With the launch of these pilots and growing industry recognition, we are well on our way to revolutionizing the way organizations think about and deliver corporate learning to their employees.” added Leaman.

Knowledge is Power – Data Knowledge Drives Success!

By Shelley Grant
LP Applications Manager
CVS Caremark

How confident are you presenting your company’s core metrics to Sr. Management? Do you know the applications and the data processes necessary to produce your most valued reports such as case productivity and store shrink? Or are you simply reporting counts, dollars and percentages with blind faith that they are accurate?

As technology continues to change and companies continue to evolve, many managers are realizing their reports and data collection methods have not evolved. Reports have been ‘band-aided’ and are not based off a single application, a single data feed or even a single process any longer. There are now several steps required to produce our critical reports and these steps include both manual and automated processes. Often the data is not analyzed until the final presentation with Sr. Management because the process to pull the data and create the report is so lengthy and convoluted. All too often we are creating reports because we’ve always created the report.

Take a moment to consider how many systems and applications your company uses. Now think about the vast amount of data these applications produce, all in different formats. Finally, picture your analyst obtaining hundreds of data feeds and manually manipulating the data to produce a high-level, visual representation of 1 data category or metric. Did your confidence in your Shrink Report just decline? Wondering if your Case Productivity is really doing that well? These are questions you should be asking yourself if you don’t know your data.

We know the more feeds, manipulations, and data formats the less accurate and consistent the data results. These processes should be consistently reviewed for accuracy, relevance and simplification. Without knowing and understanding your data sources, you don’t accurately know your results. Meaning - you do not have the ability to accurately answer questions or to provide valuable recommendations; you merely are stating numbers.

Take a moment to talk with your analyst and your IT manager about your data structure. Have them walk you through the data points needed to create the reports and get their opinion on the overall process. Finally, ensure there are periodic reviews of data flow process established throughout the year. My guess is one of the reviews will highlight an opportunity to streamline the process, improve a report and ultimately enhance your career path.

If you want to become a powerful, confident leader capable of making an impact, the key to success is data knowledge!

Why Clearly Communicating Purpose is The Most Important Leadership Skill  Make sure the people you lead clearly understand what you believe in and what your big goals are, then they will be able to maximize their potential. Define yourself and your company so that everyone is on the same page.

No matter what you do, there's always two sides in every stadium, both supported by their beliefs, convictions and opinions and both equally opposed in their desire to win. While winning is everyone's objective, how you play the game is in actuality more important. Regardless of how the other side plays, one must always remember that afterwards regardless of the win or loss everyone respects the one who played like a professional and gave it their best.
