Hawaii ORC Makes National Headlines
String of Spam burglaries prompt retailers to put canned meat under lock and key

Spam is on lockdown. The canned commodity, wildly popular in Hawaii, has been the target for a string of burglaries on the island state - prompting many retailers to lock away the meat product behind walls of plastic, the Washington Post reported.

"It's organized retail crime," President of the Retail Merchants of Hawaii Tina Yamaki told the Post. "It's not like 'I'm going in to steal Spam to feed my family. I'm going in with a list of things I want to steal.'"

Instead, she believes the thefts have in part been sparked by a Spam black market in Hawaii, where the demand for the canned product seems limitless. nydailynews.com washingtonpost.com

Food Lion VP of Pricing Arrested in Underage Sex Sting
An executive with Salisbury, NC based Food Lion was arrested in Hendersonville on Wednesday night for allegedly trying to meet an underage girl for a sexual encounter. Investigators say the girl was actually an undercover police officer.

Paul Robert LaCroix, 54, of Concord, was charged with conspiracy to commit a first-degree statutory sex offense, Hendersonville Police said. LaCroix was placed in the Henderson County Detention Center on $100,000 bond.

Food Lion's corporate office confirmed that the company suspended LaCroix, the company's vice president of pricing, pending further investigation. According to his now deleted LinkedIn page, LaCroix has been with Food Lion since December of 2009.

"Food Lion was recently made aware of the situation involving Paul LaCroix today. He was suspended immediately from the organization, pending further investigation," Food Lion said in a statement. wbtv.com

Gap: Questions remain one year after $117M devastating warehouse fire
Until recently, the roof's absence served as an illustration of the conflagration that began late Aug. 29, 2016 and raged into the early morning hours. Though the building's walls still barely stood, its interior was exposed, leaving visible the 1.3 million square feet of space buried in melted and charred rubble.

Questions remain as to how the blaze began and who is to blame.

The investigation into the cause of the fire - which law enforcement officials have said was intentionally set - is ongoing, and the reward offered for information that would help unravel that mystery was recently increased to $25,000. Officials from the Gap and local government have been periodically updated on the investigation's progress, but are still awaiting answers to such questions as how the fire could grow so quickly, unsuppressed.

More than 100 firefighters from 23 departments battled the blaze into the early morning hours of Aug. 30, using more than a million gallons of water, while law enforcement and emergency response workers also played roles.

In December filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Gap said it maintained insurance coverage for both property and business interruptions at the site, and expected to recover fire-related costs amounting to $117 million. poughkeepsiejournal.com

The Nationwide Competition for Amazon's 2nd Headquarters

Jeff Bezos and the Chocolate Factory
Which City Will Win Amazon's $5 Billion Golden Ticket?
And What Are The Downsides?

There may be a few good reasons not to add your city to Amazon's shopping cart.

Formal bids in the nationwide search for Amazon's second headquarters are due Thursday, and cities have been pulling out all the stops to attract the $479 billion retail behemoth. Mayors, residents and business leaders across the country believe that having one of the world's most valuable companies move into town is a golden ticket to economic prosperity.

But although the $5 billion project is sure to inject billions of dollars into the local economy and provide work for thousands of residents, some economists are warning that hosting the retail giant could bring on some equally giant headaches.

"It feels like 'Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,'" Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody's Analytics, told NBC News. "It's a real prize, but they're going to need to be very disciplined. It's a big deal, a big project with lots of moving parts."

While residents of the chosen city will likely reap the benefits of high-paying jobs and skyrocketing property values, they may also have to contend with some pain points as Amazon gets settled.

Traffic jams and labor pains
The proposed eight-million-square-foot headquarters will mean an influx of construction workers and materials coming to and from the site. This will raise the cost of labor for other businesses, Zandi said, since Amazon will be competing for workers. Traffic patterns in the chosen city will also be forever changed as thousands of workers commute to and from the new headquarters.

Concerned communities
As the window comes to a close this week, 73 community groups from around the United States signed an open letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos asking for the company to make some commitments to the cities under consideration. The signatories want promises from Amazon on everything from transparency and taxes to jobs and housing. That means asking for commitments on affordable housing, a promise to hire locally for construction jobs, and pledging to pay property taxes and sales tax on HQ2 building materials, and declining to sell its corporate income tax credits to other companies.

Housing boom - or bust
For some homeowners, when big technology companies move into town, it can be like winning the jackpot as housing prices skyrocket. But for renters, the housing boom can be a nightmare, driving lower income people farther outside of town. nbcnews.com

4 wildest stunts for Amazon's second headquarters
Cities compete for 50,000 jobs

While traditional factors such as talent, real estate, costs, taxes, transit and quality of life are likely to win the day, a little creativity can't hurt. Some cities got downright wacky with their efforts to get Amazon's attention in a crowded field, lured by the company's tantalizing promise to invest $5 billion and add up to 50,000 jobs. Here's how several areas are trying to stick out:

  ● Tuscon, Ariz. tried to send a 21-foot cactus to Amazon

  ● Stonecrest, Ga. offered to change its name to Amazon

  ● Football rivals Michigan State University and the University of Michigan set aside their differences

  ● Birmingham, Ala. put gigantic Amazon boxes throughout the area

Retailer to remodel more than 1,000 stores by end of 2020

Target Corp. said it would expand plans to remodel its existing supercenters and open smaller stores in cities, as the retailer seeks to win back shoppers in the competitive retail environment.

Hackers Targeting Corporate Gatekeepers
What's Next after the SEC 'Insider Trading' Breach?

Today, hackers - many of whom are either traders themselves or sell stolen information - are focusing their data intrusion efforts on corporate gatekeepers such as law firms, newswire services, and other third parties that often possess confidential corporate information for numerous publicly traded companies. Predictably, this trend of "insider trading hacks" has continued, reaching its logical extension last month when the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that it had been the victim of a significant breach and was investigating whether this intrusion "resulted in access to non-public information [that] may have provided the basis for illicit gain through trading."

Though the SEC breach will likely prove to be the most high-profile insider trading hack to date, it certainly was not the first. Recent history shows that hackers have been increasingly targeting corporate gatekeepers - entities storing material non-public information for a number of publicly traded companies. For instance, from 2010 through 2014, a group of hackers systematically targeted three newswire services that helped numerous publicly traded companies distribute information about earnings and other corporate transactions. darkreading.com

Why Does Amazon Want to Scan My Body?
Recently Amazon announced it was buying 3D modeling start-up Body Labs, for what sources say is close to $70 million.

The product is most likely to be used in Amazon's nascent apparel businesses, but could also be applicable to other fields as well. fool.com

Scammers have Domino's Australia customer data
And are sending scarily customized spam emails

Domino's Australia customer data has been leaked, and Australians are receiving spam emails from scammers as a result. At a minimum, the scammers seem to know the customers' name, email address and the store where they purchased pizzas. The result is that pizza customers have been receiving phishing emails that look legitimate, addressing them by first name and mentioning their local suburb in an attempt to provoke a reply.

In an undated statement not listed on the Domino's Australia media page, Domino's blamed a "former supplier" for the privacy breach and insisted there was no "unauthorised access" to its systems. businessinsider.com

Attack of the Zombie Websites
Major brands scammed in extensive ad fraud scheme
A BuzzFeed News investigation reveals how seemingly-credible players in the ad supply chain can play an active role in - and profit from - fraud.

Some of the world's biggest brands were ripped off by a digital fraud scheme that used a network of websites connected to US advertising industry insiders to steal what experts say could be millions of dollars, a BuzzFeed News investigation has found.

Approximately 40 websites used special code that triggered an avalanche of fraudulent views of video ads from companies such as P&G, Unilever, Hershey's, Johnson & Johnson, Ford, and MGM, according to data gathered by ad fraud investigation firm Social Puncher in collaboration with BuzzFeed News. Over 100 brands saw their ads fraudulently displayed on the sites, and roughly 50 brands appeared multiple times.

Documents obtained by BuzzFeed News reveal that the CEO of an ad platform and digital marketing agency is an owner of 12 websites that earned revenue from the fraudulent views, and his company provided the ad platform used by sites in the scheme. Another key player is a former employee of a large ad network who runs a group of eight sites that were part of the fraud, and who consults for a company with another eight sites in it. That company is owned by a model and online entrepreneur who played Bob Saget's girlfriend on the HBO show Entourage. A final site researchers identified in the scheme is owned by the cofounder of one of the 20 largest ad networks in the United States. buzzfeed.com

Pittsburgh, PA: 'Shoplifting For Hire': Shoplifters Taking Orders Online, Then Selling Stolen Goods For Profit

How to Use Mistakes, Failure to Be a Better Leader

The Failures that Helped Me Become a Better Leader  There will come times when you're thrust into a situation where you don't have the experience, or knowledge or guidance. In these instances, the best way to learn, and become better, is to make mistakes. Reacting under pressure

How Mentally Strong Leaders Bounce Back from a Serious Setback  Even as a leader, you're going to encounter something that will test your strength and drive. Encountering setbacks is something we all face, but how you organize and pull yourself together after it happens is what really makes you a leader. Here's how to keep your head up. Action list

How Leaders Can Adapt to an Environment of Change  While it can be challenging to navigate the waters of change, for leaders who are able to recognize it, it can unlock doors of opportunity. Here's how you can be adaptable even in the face of change. PESTs

How to Conquer Your Fear of Failure
While some people see failure as a challenge, to become better and get it right, some may become paralyzed when things go wrong. Learning leads to growth and change. While change is uncomfortable, is it worth it? If it's important enough to you, overcome your fear with these two, simple tips. Obey your first idea

Handling the big question - Why did you leave? is the hardest of them all if, in fact, your departure was involuntary. Like Bum Phillips, the old Houston Oilers coach, once said at a luncheon I attended, "There's two types of coaches - those that have been fired and those who are waiting to be fired." And quit frankly he was almost dead-on as over 70% of executives will face involuntary departures from an employer during their career. The best position to take is one of absolute straightforwardness. Be open - be honest - and be reflective right from the beginning. But get it over quick and deal with it right at the beginning of the interview and don't make it a long-winded response. Certainly review it - rehearse it - make sure it answers the question. But get it out of the way and move on in your own mind. Look to the future and leave it behind you.

Just a Thought,
Gus Downing
