Activists call for boycott of major retailers
BLM protests continue nationwide with arrests, injuries
A prominent Black Lives Matter activist, three journalists and more than 120
other people were taken into custody in Louisiana over the weekend, authorities
said Sunday, in connection with protests over the fatal shooting of an
African-American man by two white police officers in Baton Rouge.
On Saturday night and into early Sunday, the police arrested hundreds of
demonstrators in San Francisco; New York; St. Paul, Minnesota; and Baton Rouge,
Louisiana, including DeRay Mckesson, a prominent activist in the Black Lives
Matter movement. In Phoenix, officers used pepper spray to disperse crowds.
In St. Paul, protesters angered by the killing of Philando Castile in nearby
Falcon Heights shut down an Interstate highway for hours. At least 20 officers
were injured as people threw rocks, bottles and bricks, the police said.
On Sunday, some activists began circulating a message asking blacks around
the country to boycott major retailers and to deposit $100 into a black-owned
bank as a means of economically stopping the "slaughtering of black lives."
Economic boycott of Baton Rouge malls, Walmart called for by black leaders
A group of black leaders is calling for a limited boycott of the malls in
Baton Rouge, as well as Wal-Mart stores, in hopes of compelling business leaders
to lean on authorities to arrest the two officers implicated in the shooting
death of Alton Sterling. Calling for the boycott are leaders of the local
NAACP, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and the Nation of Islam. The
boycott was set to end midnight Sunday.
They had planned to hold an 11 a.m. Friday news conference at the Mall of
Louisiana, but the venue changed after mall officials warned that organizers
would be arrested if they came on the premises, they claimed. They relocated to
the Triple S Food Mart on North Foster Drive, where Sterling was shot and which
has been the scene of protests, memorials and news conferences all week.
The Rev. Reginald Pitcher, head of the Southern Christian Leadership
Conference's Louisiana chapter, advocated for a three-day "selective buying
campaign" aimed at pressuring Baton Rouge leaders to take action against two
city police officers implicated in the Tuesday morning fatal shooting of
Sterling, 37, in front of the Triple S Food Mart on North Foster Drive. "The reason we chose the two malls and Wal-Mart is because that is where most of
our people shop," said the Rev. Reginald Pitcher, the Southern Christian
Leadership Conference president for Louisiana. "So if we withdraw our financial
support there, the people downtown will feel the pain we're feeling here."

Cargo Theft Task Force Coming
The Senate Public Safety Committee voted unanimously to advance a bill that is

approved there, it would advance to the governor's desk. Assembly lawmakers

'War in Dallas' - Civil Unrest, Horrific Violence Continues
Snipers kill five police officers in Dallas, wound seven others during BLM
At least five Dallas police officers were killed and seven others wounded
Thursday evening as a protest over recent police shootings was interrupted by
chaos - marking the deadliest single attack on law enforcement since Sept.
11, 2001. After a peaceful Black Lives Matter march, the downtown suddenly
exploded into violence at around 9 p.m. local time when gunshots echoed through
the streets, sending protesters and police officers alike scattering for cover.
Authorities said two civilians were also injured during the shooting. Four
Dallas Police officers and one Dallas Area Rapid Transit officer were killed by
"snipers" perched atop "elevated positions," officials said.

Amazon's quest to be the low-cost provider of everything on the planet, the

somewhat lawless, bazaar with unlimited inventory.
Always a problem,

perpetually unsure of who or what may kill their sales on any given day and
how much time they'll have to spend hunting down fakers.

strategize on potential fixes.
Sales from Chinese-based sellers more
than doubled in 2015 on Amazon's marketplaces, while the company's total
revenue increased 20 percent. To unsuspecting consumers, fake products can
appear legitimate because of the Fulfillment by Amazon program, which lets
manufacturers send their goods to Amazon's fulfillment centers and hand over
a bigger commission, gaining the stamp of approval that comes with an FBA

The Brooklyn Street
Crews Who Boosted Ralph Lauren and Invented
Their Own Style
"Bury Me with the Lo On," a new book by the rapper Thirstin Howl III
and the photographer Tom Gould, begins in the
mid-nineteen-eighties, as the story of Ralphie's Kids and the United
Shoplifters Association, two Brooklyn street crews locally famous for
wearing nothing but Polo Ralph Lauren, which they almost never paid for.
They crossed paths often on the subway, and, given the two groups'
predilection for merely taking what they wanted, it seemed inevitable that
they would begin robbing each other for their gear.
unexpected happened. One night, both crews were hanging out in Times Square,
where photographers used to set up with airbrushed backdrops of city sights
and designer logos. The United Shoplifters came upon Ralphie's Kids taking a
group picture in front of a Polo background. They were the only ones who
could truly appreciate the meticulousness of each other's outfits, and so
they decided to take the picture together. They soon realized that it made
sense to join forces. In 1988, united by a nerdish devotion to Ralph Lauren
and an implicit understanding that department-store security guards were
ill-equipped to deal with packs of forty or fifty kids at once, they
christened themselves the Lo Lifes.
"Bury Me" consists largely of
personal photos from the collections of Lo Life members, many from Thirstin
Howl III, the crew's public ambassador since the late nineties. There are
Polaroids of crew gatherings, snapshots of individual collections, even
photos taken in prison. They capture African-American and Latino kids-mostly
young men, though there were also women, who dubbed themselves the Lo
Wives-inventing their own style.
They frolic and preen, their swagger
propped up by the satisfaction of a double theft: not only have they cheated
the system by not paying for the clothes, but these clothes weren't intended
for them in the first place. What we wear is our most visible projection of
desire into the world. There's something delightfully free, then, about the
juxtaposition of Ralph Lauren's upscale Americana and all these defiant
black and brown faces.
Given how much the city would change in the
coming decades, there is also something quaint about the low-level menace
posed by a dozen kids running through Macy's, grabbing the most outlandish
golf shirts, beach towels, and silk shirts in sight. At one point, G-George,
an original member of Ralphie's Kids, wonders, "How could paper have value
when everything is free?" This isn't to glorify shoplifting. But, after
reading so many accounts, and seeing so many Polaroids radiating with a
strange pride, you begin to see the world their way.
As the Harlem
rapper Zhigge explains, "Our aim was to flip it to the point where we looked
better than the people who had money."
International Organized Retail Crime Gang of 105 suspects
busted in Europe
Jewelry, cash, fake passports and more were seized by police in Europe and
Asia during a massive operation against an organized criminal group
responsible for producing and using counterfeit credit cards for
purchasing high value goods, according to a Europol press release.
During the operation some 105 suspects were arrested, including 29 in
Malaysia and 76 in Europe, while 2 illegal production sites of high quality
credit cards were dismantled.
High quality counterfeit credit cards
were manufactured in different locations and subsequently used by
individuals to purchase high value goods, mainly at electronic stores and
duty-free shops at airports, causing losses estimated at EUR5 million (U.S.
$5.1M), explains Europol. According to the investigation, the organized
crime group purchased mainly jewelry and expensive watches at
"The majority of the payment card fraud
crimes have an international dimension, taking into account the origins of
suspects, places where cards were obtained and illegal transactions made.
Only through a coordinated approach at the global level between industry and
law enforcement can we successfully track down the criminal networks behind
such large-scale frauds and bring them to justice," says Europol Deputy
Director Operations Wil van Gemert. israelidiamond.co-it

It only takes 7 seconds to make a first impression. With a job on the line,
the pressure to immediately impress is even more intense. No wonder everyone
can get frustrated.
The good news is that no matter what goes wrong
-- you go to the wrong building, you spill water, you mispronounce the
company name -- it's all about how you recover. The first rule is -- relax,
take a deep breath and make a joke about it. Humility, honesty and calming
down is the key to showing the employer that even when you're under
pressure, you'll react the right way. Think about this before your interview
because if something does happen you won't have time to think.
