RFID's Retail Expansion

Inching Closer to Mass Retail RFID Adoption
RFID Industry Shows New Life

Last week's RFID Journal LIVE! had a different vibe - one that says the technology is now seen as an important tool for improving business operations.

By Mark Roberti, Founder & Editor of RFID Journal

The radio frequency identification industry has seen numerous setbacks over the years. It was starting to gain momentum in 2008, and then the financial collapse caused many companies to pull the plug on projects. Then, the industry started coming back and patent lawsuits slapped on users, such as Walmart and John Deere, caused many companies to back away from the technology again. The industry was picking up a third time when the global pandemic hit. But last week's RFID Journal LIVE! event showed that the pandemic has actually accelerated interest in adopting RFID and other Internet of Things (IoT) technologies.

The event was smaller than usual, because many overseas exhibitors and attendees were unable to participate. But there was tremendous energy and excitement that could be felt throughout the three three days. Attendees were extremely engaged and had clear ideas about what they want to do with the technology.

GS1 US and the Auburn RFID Lab host an invitation-only lunch for retailers and their suppliers each year. This year, we had some new faces (Apple and Amazon were notable). But the conversations were also interesting. I can share anything I heard as that is one of the ground rules of the lunch, but I can say the discussions were about rolling out the technology, not about whether RFID delivers value or not.

I spoke to one consultant who works with many different retailers, and he said: "It is amazing how many retailers are moving [rolling out RFID] all at once." So, it's not just Walmart and Nordstrom who are deploying RFID in stores. Other retailers are doing so as well. Justin Patton, director of the Auburn RFID Lab estimates that about 20 percent of all apparel is currently tagged. He believes that when it hits 35 percent or so, that will be the tipping point for all retailers to start using the technology.

Mass adoption of RFID in apparel retail is close, maybe a year or two (or three) away. From apparel, the technology will spread to automotive, electronics, health and beauty, sporting goods and other retail sectors. Mass adoption across all of retail will lead to lower prices and better products, which will propel adoption of RFID in other sectors. It's an exciting time for the RFID industry. Let's just hope something else doesn't come along to slow its momentum. rfidjournal.com

America's Gun Violence Epidemic on Display Over Holiday Weekend

300+ Shootings, 130+ Killed Over Bloody Memorial Day Weekend
More Than 130 People Were Shot And Killed Nationwide This Weekend in 300+ Shooting Incidents Across the U.S.

"It's important to recognize that people are dying every single day from gun violence that doesn't make national headlines."

A Memorial Day festival in Oklahoma. A house party in Philadelphia. A graduation celebration in Alabama. As Americans came together for the holiday weekend, the drumbeat of gun violence continued to shatter peace across the country.

While the shocking and deadly mass shootings in Uvalde, Texas, and Buffalo, New York were topics of conversation for many people at beach and backyard gatherings over the long weekend, hundreds of smaller shootings nationwide ended lives, injured bodies, and left families reeling.

In just a 72-hour span over Memorial Day weekend, there were more than 300 shooting incidents across the US, according to data tabulated by the Gun Violence Archive.

More than 130 people were killed
, including a 16-year-old girl and 21-year-old woman shot dead around 1 a.m. on Monday at a holiday party in Philadelphia's Port Richmond neighborhood.

Many of the other shootings injured just one person. But some, like the gunfire that erupted on an interstate in southeast Las Vegas on Sunday afternoon, wounded as many as seven.

The murder of 19 children and two adults in their Texas classrooms last week caused widespread horror and opened the door for the first time in years to the prospect - however slim - of federal action on guns. But it has also put the country on edge.

Anti-gun violence advocates say they feel hopeful the fraught national mood may translate into political action, but they're urging Americans and the media to be mindful of the violence that occurs in between the headline-grabbing mass shootings. buzzfeednews.com

The Push to Curb America's Gun Violence Epidemic
States rush toward new gun restrictions as Congress remains gridlocked
Congress failed to impose gun restrictions after the school massacres in Newtown, Connecticut, and Parkland, Florida, and there's little confidence that 21 deaths at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, will change matters now. But states aren't waiting.

In New Jersey, Gov. Phil Murphy urged lawmakers to advance firearms safety measures, including raising the age to 21 for purchases of long guns and exposing gun-makers to lawsuits.

In New York - where an 18-year-old in Buffalo was charged two weeks ago with committing a racist mass shooting - Gov. Kathy Hochul said she would seek to ban people under 21 from purchasing AR-15-style rifles.

And in California - where a politically motivated mass shooting erupted at a luncheon of older churchgoers this month - legislative leaders and Gov. Gavin Newsom fast-tracked tougher controls on firearms.

In Republican-controlled statehouses, however, the moves evoked an equal and opposite reaction. A day after Uvalde, rural conservatives in Pennsylvania and Michigan beat back Democratic attempts to force votes on long-blocked gun safety legislation.

New York and other states pursuing strict gun laws are, in many ways, hampered by the lack of a coherent gun policy from Congress and the flow of illegal firearms from states with looser laws. Research shows that gun crimes in states with tough restrictions are often committed with firearms from more permissive states. mercurynews.com  nytimes.com

39 Security Officers Killed in Active Shooter Events Since 2005
Dozens of Unarmed Security Officers Killed During Active Shooter Incidents

"Shots fired, shots fired! Multiple people have been shot!"

These have been the words of unarmed security officers during Active Shooter incidents across the country more than 88 times during the past nine years!

Security officers are gunned down every year at hotels, concerts, malls, grocery stores, and nightclubs during an active shooter bloodbath and are unable to defend themselves or protect others.

Since 2005, Private Officer International has collected the data and statistics involving private security and private law enforcement and has created a substantial database reflecting the tens of thousands of assaults, injuries, and deaths, including those that have occurred during true Active Shooter killings.

Since 2005 and including the data so far this year, 39 security officers have been killed during an Active Shooter incident and another 28 have been shot and critically wounded. There have been seven years where three or more security officers have been murdered during these violent attacks.

Of the thirty-nine security officers that were killed, we know of only five who were armed. People who wear uniforms and badges and whom many see as authority figures will always be targets for abuse, assaults, attacks, injuries, and death.

Each year, violent attacks and homicides of security personnel continue to climb and will continue to do so with no end in sight. Private Officer International is announcing June is Active Shooter Awareness and Training month.

We will offer FREE Active Shooter training for both unarmed and armed security and provide numerous free tools, insights from true experts, and a certificate for all who complete the training. This will be made available to anyone! privateofficer.org

Another U.S. Epidemic: Growing Retail Crime & Violence

Retailers & Lawmakers Discuss Bill To Curb ORC
Cassidy, Durbin Meet With Major Retail CEOs To Discuss INFORM Consumers Act
U.S. Senators Bill Cassidy, M.D. (R-LA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) met with several retail CEOs to discuss their Integrity, Notification, and Fairness in Online Retail Marketplaces for Consumers (INFORM Consumers) Act, which passed the House as part of the America COMPETES Act and is currently being conferenced with the Senate-passed U.S. Innovation and Competition Act (USICA).

The bipartisan legislation will combat the online sale of stolen, counterfeit, and dangerous consumer products by ensuring transparency of high-volume third-party sellers in online retail marketplaces. The Senators were joined by the CEOs of Home Depot, Target, Ulta Beauty, Walgreens, CVS, and Kroger.

"Criminal organizations are attempting to trick consumers into buying counterfeit and hazardous products online," said. Dr. Cassidy. "It was great to discuss our bipartisan solution to increase transparency and help consumers distinguish between genuine retailers and fraudsters with private sector leaders."

"People deserve to know basic information about those who sell them consumer products online," said Senator Durbin. "By providing appropriate verification and transparency of high-volume third party sellers, the INFORM Consumers Act will shine a light that will deter online sales of stolen, counterfeit, and unsafe goods and protect consumers. Today's meeting was productive and I look forward to working with Senator Cassidy and our broad coalition of supporters to get this bill across the finish line."

The INFORM Consumers Act would direct online retail marketplaces that include third-party sellers of consumer products to authenticate the identity of "high-volume third-party sellers," which will help deter the online sale of counterfeit goods by anonymous sellers and prevent organized retail crime rings from stealing items from stores to resell those items in bulk online. The bill will also ensure that purchasers can obtain basic identification and contact information for high-volume third party sellers of consumer products on online marketplaces. cassidy.senate.gov

Retail Violence 'Escalating Exponentially'
Violence associated with property theft, shoplifting increasing, experts say
Experts say the violence associated with these shoplifting and theft crimes is escalating exponentially, with innocent people losing their lives over merchandise.

Adam Black a bystander at a Fairfield Township Walmart was shot and killed Thursday by Anthony Brown, who was accused of shoplifting. Captain Doug Lanier with Fairfield Township Police said it's not worth it to intervene.

Retail theft has evolved though. Lisa Labruno, Senior Executive VP of retail operations with the Retail Industry Leaders Association, said it is no longer just a property crime like it used to be.

Retail theft is happening more frequently, as is the quantity of products being stolen daily, with losses exceeding $68 billion dollars a year in retail in the United States. But even more importantly, it's getting more violent.

"It's getting more brazen, it's getting more violent, and you know that it's caused in part by the lack of accountability that these criminal actors are being held to," Labruno said.

Labruno said many shoplifters feel it's a high reward, low risk crime because there's a lack of accountability. Online marketplaces are another contributor due to the anonymity in which criminal actors can sell stolen product.

"To see more and more theft, and more and more violence. Honest people are getting more and more frustrated and wanting to do something about it," Labruno said. "And while we can appreciate the emotional investment in wanting to help stop it, it's just become too unsafe." wcpo.com

The Invisible COVID Wave
Why a Massive New Covid Wave Has Escaped the Data

Home testing and curbed state tracking efforts hold down closely watched infection totals, making it hard to shape coronavirus strategies

The U.S. has lost count of Covid cases. For the past two pandemic years, nearly everyone has obsessed over the daily number of reported Covid-19 infections.

A web search for "Covid" or "coronavirus" yields, as the first chart, the reported number of Covid-19 cases. The number is also the first item in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Covid data tracker. It is a statistic that is far off the actual number of coronavirus infections, and likely getting worse.

Today, there are abundant home tests that typically aren't reported to health agencies, and thus never get included in case counts. State-run testing centers, which once fed case totals directly into the numbers, have been curtailed.

"Pretty much everyone agrees we're underestimating case counts," said Keri Althoff, an epidemiology professor at Johns Hopkins University. "It makes it really hard to use those numbers to respond." wsj.com

COVID Lockdowns Fueling Apple Factory Backlash
Apple factory's Shanghai workers revolt over 'draconian' COVID-19 lockdowns
Worker unrest is on the rise at the Shanghai factory of a major supplier for Apple gadgets, with protests at times turning violent in response to draconian "COVID zero" lockdowns.

Workers at the Quanta Computer plant - which makes Apple's MacBook laptops - have been under strict lockdown for nearly two months with limited supplies as the Chinese government takes drastic measures to keep production online despite a recent COVID-19 case surge.

But the fed-up employees - most of whom are low-wage earners - have reportedly started to revolt against the measures. The unrest has included violent confrontations involving hundreds of workers and the factory's guards, as well as incidents in which employees have bypassed barriers to seek out basic supplies.

Tensions ran so high last weekend that a group of workers stormed a housing facility to confront Quanta's Taiwanese managers. The incident led to a lengthy standoff as the workers demanded better pay and an end to the lockdown. Bloomberg reported on rising unrest at the plant, citing conversations with people familiar with the matter. The Quanta Computer facility manufacturers Apple MacBook laptops.

"People are getting frustrated and tired of these controls," one worker at the locked-down facility told Bloomberg. "That's inevitable, especially when there is no timeline on when all this will end." nypost.com

COVID Pulled People Out of Offices - Traffic Keeps Them Away
Dreaded Daily Commute to the City Is Keeping Offices Mostly Empty

Urban areas where people live closer to work have a higher return-to-office rate, WSJ analysis shows

The Covid-19 pandemic led to a surge in remote work, emptying out office towers as more people worked from home. Cities with longer commutes have taken the biggest economic hit, while urban areas where people live closer to work have a higher return-to-office rate, according to The Wall Street Journal's analysis of U.S. Census Bureau data and building-access company Kastle Systems.

Recent polling of office workers supports the analysis. In a Gallup survey last summer, for example, 52% of those who want to work remotely listed avoiding commuting time as a top reason they don't want to go to the office. Other common reasons, like well-being and flexibility, are also closely tied to the commute.

"I think it is the biggest factor," said Richard Florida, a professor at the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management and School of Cities. "Economists and psychologists have long said that a long commute is the most immiserating condition of daily life. So it makes sense that this is what people want to avoid." wsj.com

Public Scraping Images Violating Data Privacy Globally
Countries Hit FRT Data Scraper Clearview AI With Fines Worldwide
The UK's Information Commissioner's Office announced it has fined facial recognition artificial intelligence company Clearview AI more than £7.5 million (nearly $10 million) for using images of people in the UK and elsewhere that were collected from social media to create a global online database that could be used for facial recognition. What's more, the watchdog organization issued an enforcement notice, ordering the company to stop obtaining and using the personal data of UK residents that is publicly available on the internet, and to delete the data of UK residents from its systems.

Clearview AI has scraped more than 20 billion images of people's faces and data from publicly available information on the internet including social media platforms without their consent.

It's not the first time Clearview AI has run afoul of organizations policing data privacy. Data protection authorities in Italy, Australia, Canada, France, and German have also hit Clearview AI with fines. informationweek.com

$44M Invoice Fraud & Cryptocurrency-Related Swindling Global Gang Busted in Hungary by Europol & Police
Five arrests in Hungary for money laundering across three continents
The Budapest Metropolitan Police (Budapesti Rendőr-főkapitányság), supported by Europol, dismantled a criminal organisation involved in money laundering and perpetrating fraud using administrative documents.

The action day on 9 May led to:

24 house searches in Budapest, in Pest County and in Szabolcs-Szatmár Bereg County
16 suspects apprehended and interrogated
5 arrests (pre-trial custody)
Seizures of funds in 32 countries across Europe, Australia and South America
Seizures including: one high-end vehicle,
large quantities of electronic equipment, mobile phones and sim cards, data storage devices, payment cards, weapons and ammunitions, jewellery, pledge ticket for a value of about EUR 740 and the equivalent of more than EUR 120 000 cash in different currencies

About EUR 5 million identified as linked to criminal activities

The investigation uncovered that the members of the criminal network established a number of companies with no meaningful economic activities, and purchased others with the use of strawmen. The suspects opened bank accounts in the name of these companies to be used in a chain within a money laundering scheme. The bank accounts received transfers from other accounts based in different countries; these assets usually originated from invoice fraud or cryptocurrency-related swindling.

Estimated to be active since September 2020, the criminal network is suspected of laundering million euros of criminal proceeds. More than EUR 44 million has been received on accounts linked to the criminal group, while the criminal origin of a further EUR 5 million has already been identified.

The investigation uncovered 44 individuals involved in these criminal activities, 10 of which organised the activity, while 34 were acting as strawmen. Only connected with the scheme via recruiters, the strawmen were mainly involved with the money laundering process as opposed to the frauds committed outside of Hungary. europa.eu

Retail's Union Effort Continues
Apple Store Showdown: Inside the Battle for Union Representation

Weary from the pandemic and pressured by inflation, retail employees of the tech giant are holding votes on whether to unionize.

The exchanges cut to the heart of a contest with implications for some 272 Apple stores across the United States. Two decades after redefining retail with sleek architecture and concierge tech support, Apple is being confronted by the industry's latest trend: organized labor.

Unionization has been on the rise at Starbucks, REI and Dollar General as employees feel the squeeze of inflation and tire of pandemic risks. The stresses unleashed by those forces also have roiled the tech sector, helping employees emboldened by a tight labor market win support for unions in the video game industry and at an Amazon warehouse on Staten Island.

Ms. Rhodes and colleagues were expected to be the first Apple store to vote on joining a union this Thursday. But late last week, they suspended the election. Apple stores in Towson, Md., and New York City's Grand Central Terminal are still expected to hold votes in coming weeks, and more than two dozen more have expressed interest in organizing, union leaders say.

The labor movement has worried Apple executives, who strive to foster love for Apple among employees and customers. The unions could bring an end to 20 years of burnishing the Apple brand with cheerful salespeople hawking $1,000 phones. The company has suggested that they also have the potential to increase operating costs and hobble the introduction of new products. nytimes.com

Behind Retail's Formula Shortage
F.D.A. Chief Details 'Shocking' Conditions at Baby Formula Plant

Agency inspectors found a leaking roof, standing water and cracked production equipment before a facility shutdown that led to major shortages.

The Abbott Nutrition plant in Michigan that was shut down in February, sparking a widespread baby formula shortage crisis, had a leaking roof, water pooled on the floor and cracks in key production equipment that allowed bacteria to get in and persist, Dr. Robert Califf, the head of the Food and Drug Administration, told a House panel on Wednesday.

He detailed "egregiously unsanitary" conditions in the Sturgis, Mich., plant to lawmakers during a hearing, but he also acknowledged that his agency's response was too slow in addressing problems at the plant.

That effort is expected to result in the plant reopening on June 4, Jonathon Hamilton, an Abbott spokesman, said, with some formula expected to begin rolling out June 20. Officials hope new shipments will reach store shelves within six to eight weeks, although resumption of full production at the plant will take longer. nytimes.com

$568 Million Transnational Cybercrime Enterprise
Man Sentenced for Transnational Cybercrime Enterprise
A New York man was sentenced Wednesday to four years in prison for purchasing stolen or compromised credit cards and assisting other members of the Infraud Organization in monetizing their fraudulent activity.

The Infraud Organization, a transnational cybercrime enterprise engaged in the mass acquisition and sale of fraud-related goods and services, including stolen identities, compromised credit card data, computer malware, and other contraband. According to court documents, the enterprise boasted over 10,000 members at its peak and operated for more than seven years under the slogan "In Fraud We Trust." The Infraud Organization is responsible for the purchase and sale of over four million stolen credit and debit card numbers. This scheme cost victims more than $568 million dollars.

John Telusma, 37, aka Peterelliot, of Brooklyn, pleaded guilty in the District of Nevada to one count of racketeering conspiracy on Oct. 13, 2021. According to court documents, the defendant joined the Infraud Organization in August 2011, maintaining his membership for five and a half years. Telusma was among the most prolific and active members of the Infraud Organization, purchasing and fraudulently using compromised credit card numbers for his own personal gain.

Telusma is the 14th defendant to be held accountable for his role in the Infraud scheme. justice.gov

Businesses Need Streamlined Cybersecurity Approach
By streamlining compliance, companies can focus more on security
A-LIGN released its 2022 Compliance Benchmark Report, highlighting the concern over increased threat of ransomware attacks and the need for organizations to adopt a more streamlined approach to their compliance requirements.
"C-suite executives are placing more and more importance on the value of compliance programs to drive a growth mindset in their organizations as well as a culture of security best practices. By streamlining compliance, companies have more cycles to focus on core security issues along with a tighter handle on the critical security controls necessary to prevent ransomware and implement zero trust."

Central to the report's key findings is the continued increase in the centralization and automation of compliance programs. The use of some form of software during audits and assessments is up to 72% from 25% in 2021. Yet, 85% of respondents are still routinely conducting two or more audits annually with a staggering majority using multiple auditors. As companies look to continue streamlining their compliance programs, consolidation is a major theme.

Also telling were the reasons driving compliance activities. The largest number of respondents stated that they needed to show compliance due to customer requests to gain new business. Close behind, the second most common driving factor was attributed to C-level and board security compliance mandates. helpnetsecurity.com

Blockchain for Access Control Systems: NIST IR 8403
NIST has published NIST Internal Report (NIST IR) 8403, Blockchain for Access Control Systems. Protecting system resources against unauthorized access is the primary objective of an access control system. As information systems rapidly evolve, the need for advanced access control mechanisms that support decentralization, scalability, and trust - all major challenges for traditional mechanisms - has grown.

Blockchain technology offers high confidence and tamper resistance implemented in a distributed fashion without a central authority, which means that it can be a trustable alternative for enforcing access control policies. This document presents analyses of blockchain access control systems from the perspectives of properties, components, architectures, and model supports, as well as discussions on considerations for implementation. content.govdelivery.com

Google Takes Aim at Amazon
Google Takes Yet Another Run at E-Commerce-and Amazon

The search giant abandoned plans to mimic the Seattle-based leviathan and has reset its shopping strategy around search and ads.

Google executive Prabhakar Raghavan recently had an issue with his rose bushes. His wife took a photo of the plants on her phone, uploaded the image to Google, identified the culprit and followed a link for a fungicide. Then she bought it.

A seamless transaction that didn't involve typing into a search bar, it was a real-life test of sorts for Raghavan's strategic vision. A senior vice president responsible for most of Google's largest services-search, maps, advertising and more-the 61-year-old executive is determined to crack e-commerce, a market projected to hit $2.27 trillion in 2025 that the Alphabet Inc. division has tried and failed to figure out many times before.

In the past, Google has tried emulating Amazon.com Inc.'s online retail and delivery services, with little luck. Now, under Raghavan, the search giant is positioning itself as a kind of anti-Amazon, a free marketplace for merchants and Amazon rivals that's designed to get consumers more comfortable shopping with Google.

Earlier this month, at Google's I/O software conference, Raghavan and his deputies demonstrated new features they hope will achieve that end, including one that lets visitors use photos to search for nearby retail products or find any item in the physical world with the click of a camera. And on Tuesday, the company unveiled a feature that lets people go from merchant listings on Google search to their checkout pages in one click. Raghavan hopes the various initiatives will persuade millions of people to click buy, prompting sellers to purchase many more Google ads.

For Amazon, which built a booming business by essentially renting its digital real estate to small sellers, the risk is that Google could give those brands a pathway to thriving outside its marketplace. That in turn could force the Seattle-based company to more aggressively court sellers with discounts on fees, advertising or logistics services. bloomberg.com

New York, NY: NYC Dismantles Sophisticated Luxury Goods Theft Ring
Law enforcement announced the arrest of the suspected ringleader of a sophisticated theft ring of luxury goods from stores including Bloomingdale's, Sephora and other retail outlets. The 41-member gang resold the stolen merchandise on Amazon and eBay. The ringleader, identified as Roni Rubinov, even signed a lease in 2019 on a warehouse in which he planned to open a kind of "department store" for stolen goods, the Mayor's Office said Thursday. New York Attorney General Letitia James and New York City Mayor Eric Adams revealed the alleged scam at a press conference in Lower Manhattan, describing a "massive retail theft operation" in which a team fanned out across the city to steal merchandise from stores. The indictment includes charges of criminal possession of stolen property and money laundering. Today, my office busted a massive retail theft operation in New York City that allegedly stole millions of dollars in goods from stores and resold them for profit on eBay.@NYCMayor and I are cracking down on crime and protecting communities across New York. James and Adams said police seized more than $3.8 million in stolen property from Rubinov, citing more than 550 gift cards and cash. world-today-news.com

Los Angeles, CA: Brazen Sephora robbery shows thieves dumping products into garbage bags in front of shoppers
A brazen robbery at a store at a Cerritos mall was caught on camera, showing the thieves shoving products directly from the shelves into trash bags. The robbery happened around 9 p.m. Saturday night at the Sephora store in Los Cerritos Center. TikTok user Jessica Ortiz caught the whole thing on video. In her TikTok, captions read, "I was just trying to pick out a concealer then heard a BANG." The video shows three people, all wearing hooded sweatshirts, dumping products off the shelves and into garbage bags, in front of employees and shoppers. According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Cerritos Station, the department got calls for multiple robberies in the mall Saturday night. The first robbery happened in a Forever 21 store, then the Sephora, according to authorities, but Sephora apparently hadn't yet filed a police report. foxla.com

Agents Break Up Suspected $10 Million Arizona-To-California Bottle and Can Recycling Fraud Scheme
Six people face felony recycling fraud and grand theft charges connected to a suspected multi-state scheme to defraud California's Beverage Container Recycling Program. Investigators believe the suspects illegally smuggled over nine tons of empty bottles and cans from Arizona to the Los Angeles area to fraudulently redeem recycling deposits. Since consumers outside of California do not pay California Redemption Value (CRV) deposits on beverage purchases, those containers are not eligible for CRV redemption.

"CalRecycle works alongside our partners at the Department of Justice to root out fraud and safeguard the program that helped California recycle 454 billion bottles and cans and reduce trash pollution across the state," CalRecycle Director Rachel Machi Wagoner said. "Beverage deposits belong to Californians and the state will continue to actively protect these funds."

"When individuals skirt California's recycling laws, California consumers are hurt in the process," said Attorney General Bonta. "The California Redemption program is an important tool in our efforts to encourage recycling, reduce waste, and address climate change. My office will continue to fiercely defend California's programs and resources - and we will hold bad actors who defraud our state accountable."

The California Department of Justice's Division of Law Enforcement, with technical assistance from CalRecycle, uncovered evidence of a multi-state recycling fraud ring over the course of a roughly six-month investigation. The suspects allegedly brought truckloads of aluminum cans and plastic bottles from Arizona to Los Angeles area recycling centers to illegally redeem more than $10 million in CRV deposits. goldrushcam.com

Albuquerque, NM: Police bust so-called "organized retail crime"
An ongoing operation for the last year has police and special agents in the Albuquerque-metro area targeting shoplifters who, in many cases, are accused of doing more than just stealing high-dollar items from stores. Lead by the New Mexico Attorney General, the crackdown is targeting what authorities call "organized retail crime." KRQE News 13 Investigative Reporter Ann Pierret recently looked into the work APD, the AG and other local agencies are doing to stop shoplifters, or suspects that authorities say are often involved in other crimes. From video captured in a ride-along with law enforcement, Ann's investigation gives viewers an up-close look at the work special agents are taking part in. krqe.com

Glynn County, GA: Three Men pull gift card scam at Sam's Club
Glynn County police are warning the public to be aware of cons after a cashier at Sam's Club in Brunswick was flimflamed out of thousands of dollars. Three men talking fast in international accents bamboozled a cashier out of several thousand dollars in a topsy-turvy gift card scam, Glynn County police said. The con job included a phony Pennsylvania driver's license, which was registered to a deceased woman, police said. The crooks apparently went through the motions of buying gift cards from Sam's Club, only to seek a refund of the cash they used to purchase them, police said. The cash refund ended up a wash, but the convoluted transaction was apparently just a smoke screen for the real racket, according to the police report. Only afterward did a manager realize the cards had been activated before they were returned. The men used a cell phone to snap photos of the gift card numbers before returning them. The manager "immediately checked the balances on the gift cards and determined all had been reduced to a balance of zero" by the con men, but it was too late, the police report said. news.yahoo.com

Fairfield Township, OH: LP Officer Shot, Killed by Walmart Shoplifter
The man who was shot and killed inside a Fairfield Township Walmart is being remembered as a hero. Adam Lee Black was fatally shot Thursday night. Investigators say a Walmart employee and other customers confronted the suspect, Anthony Brown, who was alleged to have been shoplifting in the electronics section. Brown opened fire and killed Black and also injured an employee. According to Black's family, he was a security guard. They say he sprung into action when he saw someone in need. His mother says he died doing what he passionate about. "It's like the minute you do something right and get on the best path somebody steals it from you," his mother Shirley Damron said. She says her son had just moved to Hamilton with his fiancee and was expecting a child. "I was so proud of the man that he become because he worked so hard to get there," she said. "I want to be assured that this man Anthony Brown will never forget my son," Damron said. "You took my sons life. I hope he will never be allowed to walk the street again."

Orlando, FL: Police identify man who died in officer-involved shooting near Mall at Millenia
A 19-year-old man was killed in an officer-involved shooting near the Mall at Millenia on Saturday night. An off-duty police officer was working extra duty at Mall at Millenia, near Millenia Boulevard and Conroy Road, when a man was asked to leave through a Neiman Marcus store around 7:12 p.m. The suspect, who was identified as Sebastian Sepulveda Roman, pulled out a gun and fired once outside of the mall, OPD says. The off-duty officer initiated a foot pursuit and called for backup. According to the police department, the officer did not discharge his weapon when initially shot at outside of the mall. An on-duty officer in a patrol car caught up to the suspect outside an Olive Garden restaurant across from the mall, Chief Orlando Rolón said. Roman and police exchanged gunfire in the restaurant's parking lot, according to Rolón. Roman suffered a gunshot wound while between cars. "We don't know at this point whether our shots were the ones responsible for the death of this individual or whether he shot himself or whether when he fell - because he fell between some cars - whether he injured himself to the extent that he may have actually sustained a fatal injury," Rolón said. The gun used by Roman was recovered at the scene. He was pronounced dead after being rushed to the hospital. wesh.com

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 quite 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.
