Protests & Violence

The Retail Impact of George Floyd's Murder
Target CEO Brian Cornell says George Floyd's murder pushed him to do more about racial equity, diversity

Target CEO Brian Cornell said George Floyd's murder, which took place not far from the company's headquarters, felt personal.

When George Floyd was killed a year ago, Target CEO Brian Cornell said he was shaken by the murder. He was troubled it happened so close to the company's headquarters in its hometown.

"That could have been one of my Target team members," he said, recounting his thoughts as he watched the video of Floyd taking his final breaths.

"I recognize that it's time to take it to another level, and that as CEOs, we have to be the company's head of diversity and inclusion," he said. "We have to be the role models that drive change and our voice is important. And we've got to make sure that we represent our company principles, our values, our company purpose on the issues that are important to our teams."

Last May, in the days that immediately followed, Cornell said Target put together a special committee to look at steps the company could take to make its workforce, C-suite and business practices better reflect the country's diversity. He said Target considered how it could support and provide advancement opportunities for Black employees, play a role in communities and "use our voice on a national level, as we impact civic discussions and policy."

Target is one of many companies that have pledged to do more to advance racial equity after Floyd's murder prompted protests in major cities and across the globe. Among its commitments, the big-box retailer said it would increase representation of Black employees across its workforce by 20% over the next year.

The company created a new program to help Black entrepreneurs develop, test and scale products to sell at mass retailers like Target. And it promised to spend more than $2 billion with Black-owned businesses by 2025, from construction companies that build or remodel stores to advertising firms that market its brand.

Cornell touted the diversity of Target's workforce of more than 350,000 employees, including its board and leadership team. Over half of its approximately 1,900 stores are led by female store directors and over a third are led by people of color, Cornell said.

He said he wants the retailer to be a leader and was particularly aware last week during the trial's verdict that "the eyes of America, and the eyes of the world were on Minneapolis." 

Washington Post Investigation
Police and politicians undermine citizens' efforts to rein in officer misconduct

Civilian oversight is undermined by politicians and police, who contend citizens are ill-equipped to judge officers

Police nationwide have frequently defied efforts to impose civilian oversight and, in turn, undermined the ability of communities to hold law enforcement accountable, according to a Washington Post review of audits, misconduct complaints, emails, lawsuits and interviews with dozens of current and former officials.

More than 160 municipalities and counties have implemented some form of civilian oversight through review boards, inspectors general and independent monitors. Another 130 localities are trying to do so, according to officials from the National Association for Civilian Oversight of Law Enforcement, or NACOLE, though this represents a fraction of roughly 18,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide.

The issue has gained new traction as part of the push to overhaul policing in the United States after the killings of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd, both unarmed and Black. Their deaths last year sparked massive demonstrations and reignited long-held skepticism about law enforcement's treatment of Black people and its tolerance for misconduct.

Those high-profile deaths, however, also reveal the limits of civilian oversight: In Louisville, the civilian board had no standing to investigate Taylor's death. In Minneapolis, the current and former civilian oversight entities had fielded 12 complaints of alleged misconduct about former officer Derek Chauvin before he killed Floyd by pressing a knee into his neck. Last week, a jury found Chauvin guilty of murder and manslaughter in Floyd's death.

While many hailed the verdict as long-overdue justice, they also said much more needs to be done to address a systemic lack of accountability for police misconduct. An examination of civilian review boards shows that well-meaning reform attempts often end in failure and frustration. washingtonpost.com

LAPD Protest Response Overhaul
LAPD says it needs $67 million, dozens more officers to complete protest
response reforms
The Los Angeles Police Department is setting the price tag for improving its response to massive protests and chaotic city crises at nearly $67 million, officials said Tuesday in a report outlining the potential reforms.

They also say they need dozens more police officers to lead new training regimens for every sworn LAPD employee. Thousands of rank-and-file officers would be trained every two years and the department's command staff would get yearly trainings in crowd control and emergency response.

The plans, presented in Tuesday's Police Commission meeting, come after three different after-action reports castigated LAPD's handling of the George Floyd protests of May and June 2020 as disorganized and often violent.

Police arrested thousands of protesters for infractions like failing to disperse, then held them on buses for hours with no access to bathrooms or water. Riot police firing less-lethal projectiles at crowds of people had little idea of who they were supposed to be targeting.

Chief Michel Moore, who has acknowledged the failures of last year's response, vowed to make changes to the department. Still, he said most officers behaved professionally even as violence flared at some protests, only cracking down when they saw threats to public safety. dailynews.com

FBI launching investigation into Brown shooting in NC
The FBI is launching an investigation into the shooting death of Andrew Brown Jr., which happened in North Carolina on April 21.

Pasquotank County Sheriff's Office deputies pulled Brown over to deliver a search warrant and two arrest warrants due to Brown selling cocaine and methamphetamine to a police informant in March. Body camera footage has not been released yet due to North Carolina law requiring a judge to sign off on footage being released. The hearing in front of a judge will happen Wednesday.

The attorneys for Brown's family said that Brown died from a bullet to the back of the head.

"We commissioned a private individual autopsy report ... because we don't have access to anything that's official," Wayne Kendall, the family attorney, said. "What our preliminary autopsy report shows is that there were five penetrating bullet wounds to the body of Andrew Brown Jr."

Brown attempted to drive away from the officers when he was shot in the back of the head, Kendall said. Family members were allowed to see the video unedited on Monday, but they were only shown a small portion that did not explain what led up to the officers shooting Brown.

The city is still under curfew as activists demand the footage be released. thehill.com

Dozens of NC protesters arrested, many defy curfew over Andrew
Brown Jr. shooting
Crowds were ordered to disperse and arrests were made as protests continued for a seventh straight night Tuesday in Elizabeth City, North Carolina, following the shooting of Andrew Brown Jr. last week.

Dozens of protesters remained out on the streets in violation of the city's curfew that went into effect at 8 p.m. Police issued multiple unlawful assembly warnings for the crowd, which they said was "blocking officers and is continuing to violate North Carolina General Statutes."

The protests come after the FBI launched a civil rights probe into the death of Brown, a Black man killed by deputies in North Carolina. His family also released an independent autopsy claiming he was shot five times, including in the back of the head. The state's autopsy has yet to be released. foxnews.com

Mass Shooting Prevention Measures

American Military University
A 35,000 Feet Perspective: Mental Health Issues Driving Active Shooters

We Need a Comprehensive Plan for Active Shooter Incidents
The Federal Emergency Management Agency has two important policies that most emergency management offices follow: The five phases of emergency management include prevention, mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery.

Many academics, however, have added another important piece to the intricate web of emergency management: community resilience. Essentially, community resilience involves the notion that communities can create networks and systems to help them bounce back quickly from a disaster.

In essence, community resilience is a particularly important factor for emergency management. It creates the opportunity for communities not only to become more resilient following an active shooter incident, but also to create mitigation plans and strategies for managing such incidents.

Mitigation and Policy Considerations

Active shooter incidents are a major cause for concern in the United States. They shake communities to the core and rob families of their loved ones. It has also become increasingly more apparent that comprehensive plans are needed to effectively mitigate active shooter incidents.

Jonathan M. Metzel and KennethnT. MacLeish argue that mental health issues are often at the core of active shooter incidents - more so than other criminal activity. In essence, mental health care needs to be strengthened and counselors need to recognize the warning signs of an individual who may go on a shooting rampage. Further, healthcare costs and insurance premiums need to be revised drastically so individuals who may be at risk of committing such crimes can receive the mental health care they need. And, it should also be noted that healthcare disparities in the United States are so problematic they prevent equal care of individuals based on where they live. These policy problems in the United States are certainly not all-encompassing, but they do highlight a number of the points that contribute to the overall problem of active shooter incidents.

As a result, it is going to take a comprehensive mitigation plan at all levels of government to effectively work to end active shooter incidents. More importantly, however, a comprehensive plan should not be viewed as a federal edict, but rather as a local plan that communities can embrace.

Certainly various policies will become part of this equation, but it will take much more for communities to effectively mitigate these kinds of incidents. It will mean better mental health care, correcting health disparities and many other policy facets that will work to prevent future active shooter incidents. amuedge.com

New Security Measures at FedEx?
Victims' families call on FedEx to bolster security in wake of mass shooting

Company will still ban most employees from having cell phones in its sorting
and packing plants

He knows that the likelihood of another mass shooting at a FedEx facility is very low, but it's hard to beat back those anxious thoughts. When he returned to work Saturday, he said he saw no changes, though the security guards seemed more alert.

Reeves is one of many employees who are uneasy about returning back to work. However, FedEx declined to say if the company is re-evaluating or changing its security measures.

"While we do not publicly disclose information about our security processes and procedures, the safety of our team members is our top priority at FedEx," a spokesperson said via email. "FedEx Ground has a policy regarding employee conduct as well as a workplace violence awareness and prevention procedures."

While FedEx did not say if they were changing any security practices, the company released a statement that grief counselors were available to Indianapolis employees. FedEx did release one policy that won't change, despite criticism after the shooting: The rule banning most employees from having cell phones in its sorting and packing plants.

Some family members of those who were killed called on FedEx to improve its security Sunday.

"To FedEx - we want to know why is there no security at the gate?" asked Ramandeep Chohan at a vigil at Monument Circle. "Why was no one looking at the security footage while this was occurring? Why do you have more security to protect your merchandise than the people that actually work there?" securityinfowatch.com

'Gun Violence Epidemic'
Biden to urge Congress to pass anti-gun violence bills in Wednesday address
During his remarks, Biden will reiterate his characterization of gun violence as an epidemic, both in the drumbeat of recent mass shootings and a spike in homicides and gun violence in communities across the country, a White House official told USA TODAY. Biden will again urge Congress to reinstate a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines - a measure he helped pass as a senator in 1994.

He will repeat calls for Congress to pass two House bills to strengthen background checks for gun buyers and close the so-called Charleston loophole, which allows gun sales to proceed without a completed background check if three business days have lapsed, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the president's remarks. The bills, which have broad public support, have languished in an evenly divided Senate where Democrats would need to maintain their razor-thin majority while also finding 10 Republican votes. usatoday.com

Vaccines Making an Impact
CDC director sees 'a really hopeful decline' as Covid cases in the U.S. fall

"Each day more and more Americans are rolling up their sleeves and getting vaccinated, and likely contributing to these very positive trends," Dr. Rochelle Walensky said.

After a worrisome uptick in Covid-19 cases in the United States in recent weeks, there are encouraging signs that the situation is beginning to stabilize, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky said in a briefing Tuesday that there have been declines across the board, with new cases, hospitalizations and daily deaths all falling over the past seven days.

New reported infections fell by 21 percent over the past week, with the most recent seven-day average coming in at just over 54,400 cases per day, Walensky said, calling the figure "a really hopeful decline." Hospitalizations also fell by 9 percent, with an average of more than 5,100 hospital admissions per day over the past seven days.

The most recent seven-day average for daily deaths stood at roughly 660 per day, representing a decline of 6 percent, she added. nbcnews.com

FBI Warns of Counterfeit Vaccination Cards

Police seize box of fake COVID-19 vaccination cards at rally outside
Connecticut Capitol
Police are investigating after a box of fake COVID-19 vaccination cards was reported outside the state Capitol Tuesday.

During a protest against legislation that would eliminate Connecticut's religious exemption for mandatory school vaccinations, a box sat on the ground, with the top reading "Lost your card?" Inside sat blue cards that looked like the one individuals receive after receiving a COVID-19 vaccine, according to multiple posts on social media.

The box was taken by officers, and an investigation is pending, Officer Scott Driscoll, a spokesman for the state Capitol Police, said. The production and purchase of fake vaccine cards is illegal, the FBI said.

"Vaccination record cards are intended to provide recipients of the COVID-19 vaccine with information about the type of vaccine they received, and when they may be able to receive a second dose of the vaccine. If you did not receive the vaccine, do not buy fake vaccine cards, do not make your own vaccine cards, and do not fill-in blank vaccination record cards with false information," an FBI public service announcement said. "By misrepresenting yourself as vaccinated when entering schools, mass transit, workplaces, gyms, or places of worship, you put yourself and others around you at risk of contracting COVID-19." courant.com

Retailer Rolls Out Walk-In Vaccines After Hitting 1M Shot Milestone
Meijer offers limited walk-in COVID vaccines at every Michigan store
Every Meijer store in Michigan is now offering walk-in COVID-19 vaccines for customers on a first-come, first-served basis. Meijer, which just announced more than one million vaccine doses administered, is opening up walk-ins at every store for Pfizer and Moderna vaccines.

Every Meijer store will have a minimum of 100 doses per week for customers to get the vaccine at their convenience. Doses will be administered on a first-come, first-served basis.

"The one million vaccine milestone is a tremendous achievement by our incredibly hard-working pharmacy teams," Meijer President & CEO Rick Keyes said. "When the vaccine rollout began, we were focused on moving as quickly as possible to keep our communities safe. Achieving this number in just over three months is a true demonstration of the focus and tenacity of the Meijer team members involved in this important initiative." clickondetroit.com

Vaccine Passports in Chicago?
Chicago looking at 'Vax Pass' for concerts and other events
Chicago's top public health official on Tuesday said she expects the city to debut a form of a vaccination passport requirement next month for access to events geared toward young adults.

Chicago public health Commissioner Dr. Allison Arwady gave few details about the initiative, but said it will be dubbed "Vax Pass" and roll out in May as a means to encourage vaccination particularly in younger people in exchange for attendance at concerts or other events as the second pandemic summer begins.

"You get a vaccine, you'll be able to get into a concert or get into an event," Arwady said. "(We're) really thinking, particularly for younger people, how can we make vaccine something that people are excited about getting?" chicagotribune.com

Return-to-Work Tensions
Tensions rise between employees & employers as return-to-work plans gain steam
After a year of working from home, most workers feel the same way. Vaccinated or not, more than half of employees said that, given the option, they would want to keep working from home even after the Covid crisis subsides, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. Far fewer look forward to returning to the office full time.

Some have even relocated due to the pandemic, moving away from metro areas in search of more space and value, which would now make commuting more difficult. And yet, in a survey of more than 350 CEOs and human resources and finance leaders, 70% said they plan to have employees back in the office by the fall of this year - if not sooner - according to a report by staffing firm LaSalle Network. cnbc.com

Shoplifter Detection Spray
Co-op security guards armed with 'Smart Water' to tag serial shoplifters so they can be caught by cops

Roughly 400 Co-op employees will be given "hand-held forensic spray" to curb the rising levels of violent crime against frontline workers.

Smart Water acts like a permanent marker - saving the security guards having to chase the shoplifters. Cops can later find those who have been sprayed and shine the UV light on them to show they were tagged.

It comes after research found that violence and abuse against shop workers has doubled during the coronavirus crisis.

Retail staff members have been assaulted, threatened or abused at least once a week on average since the start of the coronavirus outbreak, according to the Union of Shop, Distributive and Allied Workers (Usdaw). This compares to just once a fortnight in 2019.

Now Co-op will be the first major supermarket chain to use "Smart Water" to "defuse violent incidents", reports The Telegraph. Co-op believe it will act as a deterrent and say it will only be used in the most "extreme circumstances." thesun.co.uk

Glimmer of Hope for Shopping Malls?

Shoppers Return to Malls, With an Urge to Spend

Covid-19 vaccines, higher foot traffic and a jump in sales are offering hope to a beleaguered industry

Vaccinated shoppers are heading back to the mall, offering hope that the worst of the pandemic downturn is over for this beleaguered industry.

Foot traffic at a representative sample of 52 malls in March was up 86% from the same month last year, according to mobile-device location data from analytics firm Placer.ai.

While that foot traffic was 24% lower than in March 2019, mall owners are suggesting that their business has turned a corner. Shoppers are eager to get out again, often armed with cash from the latest round of government stimulus checks. Many aren't just browsing shops but dining out and returning home with bags full of new purchases.

Shares of Simon Property Group Inc., which recently acquired Taubman, are up 45% this year. That is more than three times the gain this year in the S&P 500.

The budding rebound in the mall industry echoes progress made by other types of real estate, such as hotels, that were upended by the pandemic. But shopping centers and lodging have been on the mend since the Covid-19 vaccine rollout and the recent reopening of much of the U.S. economy.

Some retailers and restaurants saw big jumps in sales on Valentines' Day and said they expect that consumer appetite will persist into the summer.

Still, the shopping center recovery looks uneven. Malls in places with an overabundance of stores and limited population growth are likely to continue struggling, especially after the recent pent-up demand subsides, analysts say. wsj.com

America's Largest Retailer

Amazon is slated to overtake Walmart as the largest retailer in the US
Walmart's not the only retail giant in town anymore. In fact, one market research study found that Amazon is on track to overtake its Arkansas-based competitor in terms of gross market value within the next few years.

A study from Edge by Ascential calculated that Amazon's gross market value will reach $631.6 billion by 2025, a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14% between 2020 and 2025. That means that the digitally native powerhouse is set to eclipse Walmart as the largest retailer in the United States. Walmart's gross market value is slated to rise to $523.3 billion by 2025, a CAGR of 3.9%.

As a brick-and-mortar native, Walmart has long trailed behind Amazon in terms of its e-commerce capabilities. In fact, Walmart started an overhaul of its online capabilities - known internally as Project Glass - to improve its digital fulfillment performance. Still, the company has leveraged its huge physical footprint to become a major contender in terms of online sales. But the Edge study found that this likely won't be enough to catch Amazon.

All in all, the estimates from Retail Insight indicate the staying power of e-commerce. The report found that 29% of total chain retail sales will come from e-commerce by 2025 and that online sales in the US alone will increase over $1 trillion by then.

Edge by Ascential estimated that Kroger will reach $166.6 billion in sales by 2025, retaining the third-place spot among retailers. businessinsider.com

Retailers, Other Businesses, Support the Equality Act

More than 400 businesses back new civil rights legislation

Amazon, Starbucks & Home Depot are among the businesses supporting the bill

The Human Rights Campaign, a Washington-based LGBTQ advocacy group, said its Business Coalition for the Equality Act has grown to 416 members, including dozens of Fortune 500 companies. Big names like Apple, PepsiCo, General Motors, CVS, Facebook, Marriott, Capital One, Starbucks and Home Depot pepper the list.

More than 400 companies -- including Tesla, Pfizer, Delta Air Lines and Amazon -- have signed on to support civil rights legislation for LGBTQ people that is moving through Congress, advocates said Tuesday.

The Equality Act would amend existing civil rights law to explicitly include sexual orientation and gender identification as protected characteristics. Those protections would extend to employment, housing, loan applications, education and other areas.

Corporate endorsements of the bill have more than doubled since the House first passed it in 2019, the Human Rights Campaign said.

"We are seeing growing support from business leaders because they understand that the Equality Act is good for their employees, good for their businesses and good for our country," the Human Rights Campaign President Alphonso David said in a statement. swvatoday.com

Global Supply Chains Are Under Attack
Why one industry needs to improve cybersecurity, before it's too late

Dependencies on just-in-time supply chains and sometimes out-of-date technology makes shipping and logistics an ever-more tempting target for cyber criminals.

Ransomware attacks against the shipping and logistics industry have tripled in the past year, as cyber criminals target the global supply chain in an effort to make money from ransom payments.

Analysis by cybersecurity company BlueVoyant found that ransomware attacks are increasingly targeting shipping and logistics firms at a time when the global COVID-19 pandemic means that their services are required more than ever before.

Ransomware attacks have become a major cybersecurity problem for every industry, but a successful attack against a logistics company could potentially mean chaos - and an extremely lucrative payday for attackers.

The nature of the industry and the potential impact of how disruption can affect all of the supply chain might mean that an affected organisation pays the ransom demand, perceiving it to be the quickest, most effective way of restoring the network - despite law enforcement and cybersecurity experts warning victims that they shouldn't encourage cyber criminals by paying ransoms.

"Shipping and logistics companies are large businesses that are highly sensitive to disruption, making them perfect targets for ransomware gangs," Thomas Lind, co-head of strategic intelligence at BlueVoyant, told ZDNet.

But despite this high profile cyber event demonstrating the need for good cybersecurity strategy, according to BlueVoyant's report, shipping and logistics companies need to "dramatically" improve IT hygiene and email security to make networks more resilient against ransomware and other cyberattacks.

That includes fixing vulnerabilities in remote desktops or ports, something that 90% of the organisations studied in the research were found to have. Vulnerabilities in RDP systems like unpatched software or using default or common login credentials can provider cyber attackers with relatively simple access to networks. zdnet.com

'Explosion of New Attacks' Coming?

Expect an Increase in Attacks on AI Systems

Companies are quickly adopting machine learning but not focusing on how to verify systems and produce trustworthy results, new report shows.

AdvertisementResearch into methods of attacking machine-learning and artificial-intelligence systems has surged-with nearly 2,000 papers published on the topic in one repository over the last decade-but organizations have not adopted commensurate strategies to ensure that the decisions made by AI systems are trustworthy

A new report from AI research firm Adversa looked at a number of measurements of the adoption of AI systems, from the number and types of research papers on the topic, to government initiatives that aim to provide policy frameworks for the technology. They found that AI is being rapidly adopted but often without the necessary defenses needed to protect AI systems from targeted attacks. So-called adversarial AI attacks include bypassing AI systems, manipulating results, and exfiltrating the data that the model is based on.

These sorts of attacks are not yet numerous, but have happened, and will happen with greater frequency, says Eugene Neelou, co-founder and chief technology officer of Adversa.

"Although our research corpus is mostly collected from academia, they have attack cases against AI systems such as smart devices, online services, or tech giant's APIs," he says. "It's only a question of time when we see an explosion of new attacks against real-world AI systems and they will become as common as spam or ransomware." darkreading.com

Extortion Attacks & Downtime are Surging

Ransomware extortion demands are growing, and so is the downtime caused
by attacks

Exploitation of vulnerabilities in RDP services and other software, combined with threats to leak stolen data, is paying off for ransomware gangs as victims pay up.

The average ransom payment paid by victims of ransomware attacks has risen as cyber criminals exploit vulnerabilities in software and remote desktop protocol (RDP) services as common means of infiltrating networks.

According to analysis by cybersecurity company Coveware's Quarterly Ransomware Report, the average ransom payment in the first three months of this year was $220,298 - up from $154,108 in the final three months of 2020.

One of the reasons the cost of ransom payments has grown so significantly is a rise in activity by some of the most notorious ransom groups, which demand millions of dollars in Bitcoin from victims in exchange for the decryption key.

According to analysis by Coveware, 77% of ransomware attacks now involve a threat to leak exfiltrated data - up 10% compared with the final quarter of 2020.

Almost half of ransomware attacks begin with cyber criminals compromising RDP services, either by using stolen credentials, guessing default or common passwords or by exploiting unpatched vulnerabilities. There's also been a rise in software vulnerabilities being exploited as a means of infiltrating networks, particularly when it comes to those in VPN applications.

All of this has come together to result in an average of 23 days downtime following a ransomware attack - up by two days. zdnet.com

Crime & Protests

Retailers & Police Discuss Shoplifting Intervention
In wake of FreshCo video, Saskatoon businesses to consult with police about how handle alleged shoplifting incidents
A video that surfaced earlier this month showing a grocery store security guard restraining a woman who allegedly shoplifted has prompted city business leaders to consult with the police about how to appropriately address retail theft.

Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce CEO Jason Aebig told CTV News the city's business improvement districts and the chamber will meet with Saskatoon Police Serviced on May 12 to address ways retailers can intervene appropriately and avoid incidents like the one shown in the video.

"The meeting is to address ways that retailers can intervene appropriately when incidents like the one in the video occur," Aebig said.

Joel Pedersen, who owns Security 2J2 in Saskatoon, says proper training in de-escalation is vital to minimize situations like the one that happened in the FreshCo parking lot.

Students at his facility train for 40 hours before they can work as a security guard, but as with most professions, he said a lot of the training happens over years on the job. saskatoon.ctvnews.ca

More Lockdown Protests in Canada

Peterborough police 'can't charge them all' but ready for anti-lockdown protest with Bernier, Hillier
Peterborough's top cop won't say if additional police resources will be added for an anti-lockdown protest Saturday which has garnered national attention on social media.

"I'm not going to talk about the police response for tomorrow," Peterborough Police Service Chief Scott Gilbert said during Friday's COVID-19 pandemic update hosted by Peterborough Public Health. "Obviously there's a reason why we have plans and we like to keep them to ourselves. We'll see how things unfold tomorrow."

Peterborough police have issued tickets under the Reopening Ontario Act for the weekly protests - organized by a group called No More Lockdowns Canada - held at Confederation Square across from city hall, including four last Saturday. First offences are out-of-court $880 tickets, subsequent ones are court-summoned tickets with fines up to $5,000 or more.

"We're, as I said before, we're prepared to take enforcement and action where it's necessary. And I'll leave it at that." globalnews.ca

'Compliance is a Noose'
Protest against COVID-19 restrictions held at B.C. restaurant that
defied health orders
Several dozen unmasked people turned up to a protest against COVID-19 restrictions Friday evening, organized by a Vancouver restaurateur who made headlines for defying public health orders.

Demonstrators bore signs with slogans including, "No dictatorship in Canada" and "Compliance is a noose."

The demonstration, held outside Corduroy Restaurant and organized by owner Rebecca Matthews, was advertised on Instagram as "restaurants against the great reset," an apparent reference to the online conspiracy theory that COVID-19 is a ruse for world leaders to bring in a "new world order."

Matthews declined an on-camera interview Friday, telling Global News she feels she's misrepresented by the media. She said the protest was in support of small businesses facing bankruptcy as a result of pandemic restrictions. globalnews.ca

COVID Update

Canada Calling in the Military
Canada military will help out in Ontario as Covid positivity hits all-time high
Canada has deployed its military to Ontario amid a worsening Covid-19 wave that has caused the positivity rate to hit an all-time high in the province. The government approved Ontario's request for medical and other support as ICU admissions hit new highs Monday.

"We have approved a request for assistance from Ontario to provide support to their provincial healthcare system against COVID19," Bill Blair, Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, said on Twitter. "@CanadianForces will provide medical + civilian human health resources within medical care facilities in ON, as well as logistical and admin. support."

Earlier this month the province issued new stay-at-home orders that were met with some protests. The government doubled down on April 16 when it said it would strengthen enforcement and penalties for those not complying with orders.

Canada said it would deploy federal health human resources, provide support from the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), and pay for the redeployment of the Canadian Red Cross to support and relieve staff in medical care facilities, a statement released late Monday said. cnn.com

Massive PPE Reselling Scheme
Five Canadians facing charges in the U.S. for allegedly buying up PPE, reselling at higher prices
Five Canadians have been charged by a U.S. grand jury for allegedly running a massive scheme to acquire personal protective equipment (PPE) and event tickets to resell at a higher cost during the pandemic.

According to a release from the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Western District of Oklahoma, a recently unsealed indictment charges six people - five from Ontario and one from Los Angeles, California.

"At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is alleged that the conspirators began targeting U.S.-based businesses selling goods that were scarce due to the pandemic," the release states. "The conspirators allegedly used stolen credit card information to purchase items such as nitrile gloves, masks, and gowns and to resell them to third parties."

In the early days of the pandemic, when panicked people were buying toilet paper en masse, the group allegedly purchased "approximately US$18,000 worth of toilet paper from a paper supply company in Oklahoma City," in March 2020. ctvnews.ca

The Trouble with Mandatory Face Masks in Canadian Retailers: Expert Commentary
Masking is currently required to access retail stores across Canada amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Presently, every province has regulations in place that require customers to wear masks before entering stores to shop.

All such regulations include exemptions for those unable to mask owing to a disability. However, not all store masking policies include these exemptions. The inability to mask for medical reasons raises important questions about the application of well-established principles of human rights law to the retail sector.

Consumers and retailers are understandably confused. Indigo, for example, maintains that despite their store policy, they are "mindful" of their "legal obligations, especially those relating to customer human rights."

As vaccination efforts roll out across the country, the end of the COVID-19 pandemic may finally be in view. Issues of mask-wearing exemptions and accommodations by retailers may soon be moot and the situation could remain unresolved - until the next public health crisis. retail-insider.com

Protecting Canadian Retailers
Amazon Launches Intellectual Property Accelerator for Canadian Retailers
and Businesses
Retail giant Amazon has launched the Intellectual Property Accelerator to help Canadian businesses - of small and medium size - secure a trademark and protect their brands.

The initiative connects these businesses with a network of Canadian IP law firms charging reduced fees on key services and participating businesses can access Amazon's brand protection tools months before their trademark registration is issued.

Mary Beth Westmoreland, VP, Brand Protection at Amazon, said more than 30,000 Canada-based third-party sellers have grown their business with Amazon, reaching millions of customers while grossing more than $2 billion on Amazon's stores around the world.

"IP Accelerator is a program that helps businesses that sell on Amazon more quickly obtain intellectual property rights to protect their brands, both in Amazon's stores and in the broader marketplace," she said. retail-insider.com

Shooting Outside Mall Linked to Gang Conflict?
Coquitlam, BC: Police investigating if shots fired near Coquitlam mall linked
to gang conflict
Police in Coquitlam, B.C., are investigating whether gunfire near a local mall on Monday afternoon is connected to an ongoing gang conflict in the Lower Mainland. RCMP were called to the Coquitlam Centre area at 4:06 p.m. PT in response to a confirmed shooting, Staff Sgt. Paul Vadik said.

No shooting victims were located, but a man who turned up in hospital with non-life threatening stab wounds is believed to be connected to the incident in some way, Vadik said. "It is unclear at this point if there are connections to the Lower Mainland gang conflict," he told CBC News.

No suspects have been arrested, but investigators are asking any witnesses or people with dashcam footage of the area to call Coquitlam RCMP. Last week saw three fatal shootings in public places across the Lower Mainland. cbc.ca

FedEx & Adobe Team Up for 'Open E-Commerce Ecosystem'
FedEx, Adobe Agree to Integrate E-Commerce Sales, Service Platforms
FedEx Corp. and Adobe Inc. are teaming up in a deal aimed at helping retailers meet e-commerce demand and compete with online heavyweights such as Amazon.com Inc. by sharing data across digital sales and distribution networks.

Adobe is integrating FedEx's recently acquired ShopRunner e-commerce service, which provides expedited delivery from more than 100 merchants, with the software provider's digital commerce platform, the companies said Tuesday. The agreement will help businesses that sell on Adobe's platform offer free two-day shipping and other services, such as easy returns.

"The intent is to create an open e-commerce ecosystem and be able to help merchants and brands compete in this rapid growth in digital commerce that we've seen over the past year," said Sriram Krishnasamy, senior vice president of strategic programs for FedEx Services and chief executive of FedEx Dataworks.

The partnership could also funnel more parcels through the delivery giant's network. Adobe sellers who use FedEx as a carrier would get access to data to help with logistics planning, such as prioritizing which orders to fulfill first for faster delivery. Adobe sellers should be able to download the FedEx extension in late 2021, the companies said.

The goal "is to really help merchants now plan for the future...instead of just reacting, as many of them had to do during the pandemic," said Anil Chakravarthy, executive vice president and general manager for Adobe's digital experience business and world-wide field operations. wsj.com

According to court documents, in early 2019, Carabeo Boned and his co-defendants, Duani Garcia and Raiquel Monteagudo Torres, visited Wal-Mart stores throughout Clay County and used credit and debit cards that had been re-encoded with stolen account numbers to purchase phone cards and gift cards.

Perception becomes reality slowly on a macro level and it's difficult to change it if it's incorrect or doesn't portray the truth. It's the same reason law enforcement separates witnesses to ensure clarity and truth. The group mind becomes influenced by opinion and agendas and distorts the true reality. One can only rely on daily vigilance based on doing what's right to hopefully impact the individuals one works with on a daily basis to carry the experience forward and be witness to what is right.
