The continuing story of the Regional LP Manager charged with murder

Sociopath, dark side and unempathetic are among Law Enforcement’s descriptions of Bernard Grucza  As the story continues to unfold of the accused murder, background begins to show the world unraveling around Bernard Grucza’s life. Inside the lavish 3,750 square foot home of the Grucza’s were a chandelier and a fireplace, but also a broken marriage, bankruptcy and bizarre behaviors. Weeks before the murder, on June 8th at 1am, Grucza and his wife had a heated argument; Grucza ran upstairs and fired one shot from his 9mm handgun out the window and laid on the floor. His wife ran upstairs to see what happened and rolled Grucza over only to find out he was unharmed. Grucza told his wife he was testing her love for him. (Source

How one retailer used a James Bond team building exercise to break down silos and gather intelligence  What great things are your competitors doing that your company could learn from? What are their weak points that you should be exploiting? Maybe it’s time to send in a team of specialists to find out. And by specialists, I mean the intelligence superstars on your staff. Recently, I attended a management-development conference for a major national retailer. Managers and executives assembled from across the country to listen to pep talks from the C-suite, updates from their most accomplished peers and lectures from hired speakers. They also tackled a uniquely innovative project. One afternoon, the group divided into teams of eight to 10 to infiltrate nearby malls and observe rival retailers. Each team would report back to the full group with a slide presentation the next day. What they found may interest you - read on at

Thieves Pose as Truckers to Steal Huge Cargo Loads - An increasing trend
To steal huge shipments of valuable cargo, thieves are turning to a deceptively simple tactic: They pose as truckers, load the freight onto their own tractor-trailers and drive away with it. It's an increasingly common form of commercial identity theft that has allowed con men to make off each year with millions of dollars in merchandise, often food and beverages. And experts say the practice is growing so rapidly that it will soon become the most common way to steal freight. News reports from across the country recount just a few of the thefts: 80,000 pounds of walnuts worth $300,000 in California, $200,000 of Muenster cheese in Wisconsin, rib-eye steaks valued at $82,000 in Texas, $25,000 pounds of king crab worth $400,000 in California.

Is the Term "Accident" Still Acceptable
Every career, every field of endeavor or employment has their own terminology. This terminology can be critical to making sure everyone is on the same page and knows what exactly certain words mean and when they should be used. One of these words, that been under much scrutiny, is the term "accident." Should it still be used when discussing safety? An accident is described as something that happens that occurs unintentionally, so in regards to safety, maybe a different term should be used such as "incident." While this is up for much debate and could be argued both ways a million times over, the thought is nonetheless provoking! (Source

Nextiva PSIM Solution Awarded for Innovation in Information Technology and Security

MELVILLE, N.Y.-- Verint Systems Inc. today announced that it has received two new industry awards for its advanced Video and Situation Intelligence Solutions.

Nextiva Video Business Intelligence Earns Innovative In-Store Surveillance Distinction

Verint’s Nextiva Video Business Intelligence (VBI) was among the awarded solutions that earned the 2013 Retail Fraud Award in the category of “most innovative in-store surveillance” solution. The award program—presented by Retail Knowledge Media, a leading retail industry publication that accounts for more than 79,000 readers—recognizes the most exciting vendors and innovations designed for the retail fraud and loss prevention markets.

The Verint VBI solution was shortlisted among other surveillance solutions based on its innovative approaches to in-store surveillance, and won the honor due to its unique ability to capture and analyze shopper movement patterns to help enhance loss prevention efforts, increase conversion rates, improve operational efficiency and maximize customer satisfaction.

"There's two types of coaches - Them that’s fired and them that’s gonna be fired.”  Many years ago I went to an HR luncheon where the old cowboy football coach Bum Phillips was the luncheon speaker and I'll never forget his opening line. And it brought down the house. Last week Bum passed away and I just had to run this today. As I've quoted it for years and quite frankly it's the truth. Over 70% of all executives will face it at some point in their career, or at the end of it. The real issue is how you deal with it. How you get up after being knocked down. As it always amazes me how for some, their loyalty or should I say job-security, becomes more important than their own career development. When in reality corporate America, in keeping with their responsibilities, will cut jobs when they have to, regardless of your accomplishments or tenure. That's not to say that loyalty is not one of the most important characteristics there is, because it is. But it is to say that when opportunity knocks a wise person listens.

Coming from an old knocker,
Thanks Bum - You made my day, the day I heard your speech and gave me a life long quote to use.
And on a side note - having been out all last week with a bug - It's great to be back!

Just a Thought,
Gus Downing
