Amazon eyes crowdsourced deliveries - 'On My Way' - Could be a nightmare at your
door Always on the hunt for quicker and less costly deliveries, Amazon
is considering paying ordinary people (as opposed to shippers such as FedEx or
UPS) to deliver packages as part of a crowdsourced delivery program, according
to The Wall Street Journal. They would drop off the packages to customers on the
way to their own destinations. The service is referred to internally as "On My
Way," the report said, and no other details are available. The report also noted

Shift to e-Payment Not as Hard As Some Might Fear, Says Study
Card payments, especially, are catching the notice of financial executives, as
the movement toward better intelligence on spending, and timely, real-time cash
transfers to vendor and other parties can help save time and money. Though 70
percent of organizations are working to shift from paper to e-payments, SVB
noted that card payments are gaining traction as an added way to conduct day to
day operations with greater insight to how everything from accounts payable to
travel expenses are being managed. In reference to fraud, 43 percent of
financial institutions reported fraudulent card payments in 2013, with a jump
from 2012 levels of 29 percent.

Clara Four Southern California men have been charged with allegedly
creating counterfeit credit cards used to buy more than $500,000 in high-end
merchandise in Santa Clara and Fresno counties, a Santa Clara County deputy

Clara County and one store in Fresno County from August 2014 to February, Deputy
District Attorney Jennifer Deng said. A total of 42 charges have been filed
between the four men for identity theft, burglary, conspiracy, aggravated

Career Shoplifter arrested at Target in Spring Twp, PA; 9 prior arrests
A Bethlehem Township man, already convicted eight times for retail theft, was
arrested and charges again Monday after allegedly trying to steal a cart full of
items from Target. According to police, Alfred George Khallouf, 39, was trying
to take about $324 worth of merchandise without paying for it, including

SC brothers who are serial shoplifters arrested again On Monday
afternoon, two sets of police officers converged from two directions toward guys
under a tree on Maiden Lane in York. The tree gave shade when the heat hit 96
degrees. The shade did not last. The heat came in with handcuffs. The charges
are shoplifting - again - for brothers Jerry and Anthony Kennedy, ages 61 and
59. One of them, Jerry, already has spent eight years in prison for shoplifting.
That was not Jerry's first or only prison time for shoplifting or stealing. He
has, State Law Enforcement Division records show, 18 convictions for property
crimes. Younger brother Anthony has multiple convictions for property crimes,
SLED records show, including shoplifting, forgery and writing fraudulent checks.
He, too, has spent time in state prison for those convictions. These arrests -
for allegedly stealing steaks, T-shirts, gun scopes and two cases of soda -
could land the brothers back behind bars long enough to be cashing their Social
Security checks at the prison store.

Loyalty is one of the most precious values there
is and a loyal team that's unified in its goals and objectives, even in defeat,
is strong and supportive. Loyal teams can make the largest tasks seem effortless
and they create a sense of ownership of family that inspires individual
performance and comforts individual failure. Earned slowly and grown daily,
loyalty is a commodity no leader can be without because it fuels success,
unifies purpose, and gives birth to exceptional performance. Without loyalty,
teams splinter and lose focus on the true objectives. It's rare to build a truly
loyal team and it's incredibly difficult to keep them together long term with
private agendas always pressuring the balance. And yes, even loyal teams require
balancing because at the end of the day it's always about personal agendas.
Professional sports teams are constantly looking for that balance and the right
players to fit as a team and the same holds true in business. With the right
team, anything is possible and conversely one team member can destroy the entire
balance. So being a team player is important even when you decide not to be.
