Violence, Crime & Protests

'Most Violent Period in the 21st Century'
Murders are up. Crime is not. What's going on?

The US is in its most violent period in the 21st century. There are some things we know - and others we don't.

Last year, the US saw the biggest increase in the murder rate in decades. The estimated
total number of homicides rose to levels not seen since the late 1990s, even as the overall crime rate declined. So far, the spike has continued into 2021: Murders are up nearly 15 percent so far this year compared to the same period last year, based on data from US cities collected by crime analyst Jeff Asher.

That's what we know. What we don't really know yet is why.

Year-to-year fluctuations in crime and violence can and do happen. But the size of the murder spike has led to broader national attention. The increase is now part of an ideological proxy war - leading to conflicting opinions even within political parties on what to do about the increase in murders, and plenty of finger-pointing over whether the
pandemic, protests over police, or guns are to blame.

We don't really know, with certainty, what's behind the rise. All three of those factors likely played a role. And there may even be some unknown factor that researchers won't notice for years; the theory that higher levels of lead in the environment caused higher crime and violence from the 1960s to 1990s took decades to get widespread national attention.

increase in murder appears to be a uniquely American phenomenon. While murder rates rose in some developed countries last year, like Canada and Germany, the increases are far below the double-digit spikes America is seeing. That's especially notable because the United States already had a higher baseline of murders, after controlling for population.

The good news is there is a lot more agreement among experts about how to bring down the spike than there is about what caused it. But the best evidence suggests
stopping murders in the short term will require more and better, though not necessarily more aggressive, policing - a controversial proposal on the left.

The stakes are very high.
Nearly 21,000 people were murdered in America in 2020, based on preliminary data. Another increase of 10 percent or more could mean thousands more dead in 2021. vox.com

One Nation Under Fire - A Shooting Every 12 Minutes
A week's glance at gun violence ripping across America
Saturday, July 17, and Friday, July 23, the Gun Violence Archive tracked at least 915 shooting incidents -- or, a shooting every 12 minutes -- that left at least 430 people dead and 1,007 wounded. In total, more than 1,000 were wounded or killed this week alone. These numbers are not static, and are constantly updated as data comes in.

Last year marked the deadliest year for shooting-related incidents in the U.S. in at least two decades, according to Gun Violence Archive data with more than 43,000 gun deaths. But GVA's data suggests 2021 is on track to surpass those figures with more than 24,000 gun fatalities reported so far.

more than 800 Americans under 18 years old have died from gun violence so far in 2021, with 174 of them under 12, GVA data shows. So far, there have been 18 mass shootings in 12 cities across the U.S. this week, according to the GVA's data, with 19 dead and 74 wounded.

The epidemic of gun violence also
includes suicides, which are the cause of about 60% of adult firearm deaths, according to the Department of Justice. In 2019, an average of 66 people each day died by suicide with a gun, according to the Education Fund to Stop Gun Violence. This year alone there have been more than 13,500 suicides by gun, GVA data shows.

ABC News and the GVA's assessment of this past week's gun violence found that in all,
two people had been killed and five people had been wounded every hour.

Of all the states,
Illinois had the highest number of gun violence incidents, with 109 incidents tracked. Texas followed with 63 incidents, and then Pennsylvania, California and New York, where there were 59, 52 and 48 incidents, respectively, over the last week. abcnews.go.com

California Governor on the Hot Seat Over Rising Violence & Retail Crime
Could the Crime Surge Hurt Newsom in Upcoming Recall Election?

California is seeing a surge of crime, particularly homicides, and advocates of recalling Gov. Gavin Newsom want to make it an issue.

Those who want voters to recall Gov. Gavin Newsom joined crime victim advocates at the state Capitol last Tuesday to
accuse the governor of being too lenient on lawbreakers as the state experiences a new wave of crime.

They castigated him for unilaterally
suspending executions of murderers and making it easier for felons to win release from state prisons.

"The thing that really alarms me about what the governor did, is that it's a continuation of policies to undermine the criminal justice system, and to
put dangerous people back out onto the streets," said Marc Klaas, whose daughter, Polly, was murdered 25 years ago by a recently released felon. The killer, Richard Allen Davis, is one of 737 murderers benefiting from Newsom's death penalty suspension.

A few hours later, Newsom's office announced that he would hold a press conference in Los Angeles Wednesday "on state
action to address crime and reduce retail theft in communities across California."

Newsom devoted much of the event to signing Assembly Bill 331, which extends an effort to
crack down on organized shoplifting that has plagued California retailers in recent months. But he attributed the sharp increase in violent crime, particularly murders, to "a proliferation of guns on our streets" and noted that "There is not a state that's been spared."

The back-to-back events imply that
crime may be a new front in the recall campaign and that Newsom feels the need to defend himself. calmatters.org

Criminal Justice Reform Stalled By Rising Crime?
Advocates Frustrated By Biden's Silence On Justice Reform
One of President Joe Biden's most powerful tools for advancing criminal justice reform is his voice and yet, despite his campaign promises,
he has been mostly silent on the issue while in office, frustrating criminal justice reform advocates.

Advocates for
ending mass incarceration and mandatory minimum sentencing would have liked Biden to do more than just talk about criminal justice reform in his first six months in office, but they are even more frustrated by the fact that he isn't loudly advocating for reform and isn't letting people know when he will act on his reform promises.

Criminal justice advocates acknowledge that Biden started his presidential term with a full plate of pressing issues to address:
the COVID-19 pandemic, an economic downturn, extreme political division and a migrant crisis at the southern border that could have sidelined criminal justice reform in his administration's early days. And now, six months later, Biden's administration is still grappling with these issues in addition to combating a spike in homicides and surges in coronavirus cases in areas with low vaccination rates.

But advocates and experts say that Biden could at least publicly support more criminal justice reform legislation that has been introduced in Congress and
dispel myths being perpetuated by some Republican lawmakers that releasing people from prison increases crime. law360.com

'Defund the police' officially on November ballot in Minneapolis

The political committee behind the effort is reportedly fueled by a single $500,000 donation from progressive billionaire George Soros.

A 12-1 vote from the Minneapolis City Council pushed a petition drive to
replace Minneapolis' police force with a department of public safety on to the November ballot.

The proposal will ask voters if they want to approve a plan to
replace the police department with a new public safety department focused on a "comprehensive public safety approach" that would include police officers "if necessary to fulfill the department's responsibilities."

The plan would
eliminate the charter's requirement for a minimum number of police officers and remove the mayor's "complete power" over the department.

The plan's advancement follows a June court order for the 435,000-person city to hire more police officers since it's currently violating its charter by understaffing the department.

Chicago's Gun Violence Crisis Continues
Chicago shootings: 69 shot, 10 fatally, in weekend violence across city

One man was shot & killed while standing outside a convenience store

Sixty nine people have been shot - 10 fatally, including a 17-year-old boy - in Chicago since Friday night.
A man was shot and killed as he stood in front of a 24-hour convenience store Saturday evening on a busy street in Chatham on the South Side.

About 8:15 p.m., Theodore Smith was
standing outside the store when someone walked up to him with a gun and shot him in the chest, according to Chicago police and the Cook County medical examiner's office.

The 44-year-old was rushed to the University of Chicago Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, police said.
The man was an employee of the store and was smoking a cigarette when he was shot, a person at the scene told the Sun-Times.

At least forty-three others were wounded in citywide gun violence since 5 p.m. Friday. There were 56 shot, 11 fatally, last weekend. last weekend in Chicago. abc7chicago.com

Atlanta's Violent Weekend
10 shot in separate shootings in Atlanta; community searching for solutions
By late Sunday night, Atlanta police had responded to
at least 10 people shot in different shootings spread out across the city.

Among the incidents, an officer-involved shooting at a block party near Hamilton E. Holmes Drive, a triple shooting northwest Atlanta and the Saturday afternoon shooting death of 17-year old Jakari Dillard at the Anderson Park swimming pool.

"It's always tough, to understand
why it's happening in our community and what more can we do to try and help prevent these things," Durrett said.

Lincoln asked the Mayor's Office why they shut the pools down. It said it was to complete an operational assessment of the outdoor city owned pools. Several sources told Lincoln the decision was spurred by resident complaints about a lack of lifeguards and
a need for more security officers.

Last week,
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms proposed a $70 million plan to help reduce crime which includes a plan to hire more police officers. wsbtv.com

America's Alarming Summer COVID Surge
US headed in 'wrong direction' on COVID-19, Fauci says
The United States is in an
"unnecessary predicament" of soaring COVID-19 cases fueled by unvaccinated Americans and the virulent delta variant, the nation's top infectious diseases expert said Sunday.

We're going in the wrong direction," said Dr. Anthony Fauci, describing himself as "very frustrated."

He said
recommendations for the vaccinated to begin wearing masks again are "under active consideration" by the government's leading public health officials. Also, booster shots may be suggested for people with suppressed immune systems who have been vaccinated, Fauci said.

163 million people, or 49% of the eligible U.S. population, are vaccinated, according to CDC data.

This is an issue predominantly among the unvaccinated, which is the reason why we're out there, practically pleading with the unvaccinated people to go out and get vaccinated," Fauci said. wtae.com

Vaccine Mandates Coming as Delta Surges?
Major medical groups call for employers to mandate Covid-19 vaccines for health care workers
As the number of Covid-19 cases surges in the United States,
more than 50 health care groups -- including the American Medical Association, the American College of Physicians, the American Academy of Pediatrics and the American Public Health Association -- issued a joint statement calling for all health care and long-term care employers to mandate employees be vaccinated against Covid-19.

"Our health care organizations and societies advocate that
all health care and long-term care employers require their workers to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. This is the logical fulfillment of the ethical commitment of all health care workers to put patients as well as residents of long-term care facilities first and take all steps necessary to ensure their health and well-being," they wrote in the joint statement issued Monday.

Because of highly contagious variants, including the Delta variant, and significant numbers of unvaccinated people, COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths are once again rising throughout the United States. Vaccination is the primary way to put the pandemic behind us and avoid the return of stringent public health measures," the statement added. cnn.com

Pandemic is Driving Violence In Stores & On Planes
A Harvard psychologist explains the rise in passengers getting violent on airplanes and customers abusing retail workers

After a year and a half of being on edge, many people are reaching a "boiling point."

Violence on airplanes is spiking.
Retail and fast-food workers say they're being harassed and assaulted. And small business owners report experiencing frustrated customers whose patience has evaporated.

All of this behavior is
the result of a year and a half of fear and anxiety, according to Luana Marques, an associate professor of psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

In 2020, retail workers were called "heroes" and "essential" as they worked to supply meals or groceries amid a harrowing pandemic. At the same time, they were
tasked with carrying out one of the most complex social aspects of the pandemic: enforcing mask mandates. A survey of 4,187 McDonald's workers from last summer conducted by the Service Employees International Union found that 44% of respondents had been physically or verbally assaulted over mask mandates.

Workers say
the abuse hasn't let up, even as mask mandates have lifted in many parts of the country. A Starbucks barista in Louisiana recently told Insider's Mary Meisenzahl that the "handful [of customers] that you get each day who will berate or abuse you can take a drastic toll on your mental well being."

harassment, combined with low pay, is causing workers to leave their jobs, leading to a labor crunch as society gradually reopens.

The situation isn't much better on airplanes. After aggression over mask compliance spiked last summer, the Federal Aviation Administration began tracking unruly passenger reports, according to NPR. Since January 2021, the
FAA has received 2,500 reports of unruly behavior, leading to thousands of dollars in fines for passengers. businessinsider.com

Shoppers Retreat as Delta Variant Surges
The Delta variant could make the American shopper go back into lockdown

The Delta variant could hurt the American shopper, and the economy

Something may be changing in the American economy for the worse, and it's because of the Delta Covid variant. At least that's what Bank of America research thinks.

The stock market had a major wobble on Monday, July 19, as data on the variant - and how many Americans it's rapidly infecting - challenged economic thinking around the reopening boom, led by consumer spending. In a signal of how seriously the mood changed, previously vaccine-skeptical Republican politicians and Fox News hosts reversed themselves, urging more Americans to get vaccinated.

The American shopper emerged from lockdown to lead the recovery, but that's now at stake.

BofA economists Stephen Juneau and Anna Zhou wrote in a Friday note that
the variant is likely to lead to a shift in consumer behavior going forward, citing a 351% surge in the moving average of daily cases since July 21. Accompanied by slowing vaccination rates, they said they "believe the current surge in cases could lead to a sharp pullback in services spending." businessinsider.com

Women 35% - 40% More Productive than Men Working Remotely
Viewpoint on Remote Work Depends on Gender, Ethnicity, Industry
"Businesses that fail to understand the gender gap and other inclusion issues in remote work will see DE&I [diversity, equity and inclusion] efforts fail as women lose opportunities to network and connect with other employees,"
SHRM researchers wrote. While men and women who work remotely agree that they are more productive-and tend to work more hours-women reported being more productive than men (40 percent and 35 percent, respectively).

Female remote workers said they were most concerned about
working longer hours and having fewer opportunities to network and form relationships. Men, more so than women, think managers will view them negatively for working from home, resulting in poor performance evaluations.

Supervisors Weigh In - Editor: It's easy to forget those @home. Out of sight - Out of mind.

Managers and supervisors of remote workers also voiced concerns in a separate survey SHRM conducted in July with 817 respondents, 593 of whom supervise remote workers.
Among their responses:

55 percent of supervisors find it difficult to manage a remote team.
42 percent said they sometimes forget about their remote employees when assigning tasks.
67 percent admitted they consider remote workers more easily replaceable than those working onsite. shrm.org

'People are just walking out in the middle of shifts'
Restaurants still reeling from the pandemic
Workers interviewed by CNN Business said they're struggling in the
short-staffed environment. Servers are stepping into other roles as overworked back-of-the-house employees quit, and sometimes seeing their tips ebb as they scramble to keep up with the new responsibilities. Fed-up colleagues sometimes quit in the middle of their shifts.

They're in this situation because during the pandemic, many workers were laid off, as safety measures required some restaurants to close dining entirely. Eventually, when restaurants started re-hiring, they found a smaller pool of potential employees. Some moved away, others found new jobs in other industries. Some are still staying home to care for children or other dependents. Some, fed up with what are often low wages for the arduous work, vowed never to return.

In an attempt to woo those still interested in restaurant jobs,
some employers have raised wages or increased perks. The extras may help, but they can't fix the fact that when restaurants are understaffed, those coming in have to pick up a lot of extra slack.

Some are planning to stick it out, while others
wonder if it's time for them to exit the industry themselves. cnn.com

COVID Travel Restrictions Remain in Place
US will not lift travel restrictions, citing COVID-19 Delta variant
The US will
keep in place COVID-19 travel restrictions for foreigners due to the rising number of cases caused by the Delta variant, a White House official said Monday.

The decision to not lift the existing travel rules means non-US citizens from numerous countries, including the
United Kingdom, China and India, are still barred from entering the US.

"Given where we are today with the Delta variant, the United States will maintain existing travel restrictions at this point," the official told Reuters. "Driven by the Delta variant,
cases are rising here at home, particularly among those who are unvaccinated and appear likely continue to increase in the weeks ahead."

The US currently prohibits most foreigners who within the last 14 days have been in the
majority of the European countries, China, India, South Africa, Iran and Brazil. nypost.com

Store Death Prompts OSHA Investigation
OSHA looking into death at Golden Valley Menards

An employee at a Burnsville store was killed in a similar accident in 2017.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is investigating
the accidental death of an employee at the Menards in Golden Valley Thursday.

James Stanback, 19, was
killed in the store's outdoor lumber area at about 10 a.m. when a pallet of lumber fell on a forklift he was driving, Golden Valley police said.

The company released two short video clips from the lumberyard showing wood sliding onto the forklift as it moved close to the pile. The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office attributed Stanback's death to "mechanical asphyxia."

Minnesota OSHA opened an investigation Friday, OSHA spokesman James Honerman said. "
We will inspect work areas for safety or health hazards, try to determine what caused or contributed to the accident and review whether existing OSHA standards were violated."

There is no set time frame for an OSHA investigation, Honerman said.
An investigator will also review records showing what types of safety and health training employees have received. OSHA standards detail how the training should be conducted and what it should include.

OSHA records show no previous investigations at the Golden Valley Menards, he said, but
an employee at a Burnsville Menards was killed in a similar accident in 2017. startribune.com

UK Government Urged to Boost Retail Staff Protections
Unions call on the UK government to beef up laws protecting retail staff

A UK union called for tighter laws to protect retail workers after a violent brawl in a London store.

A UK union is
calling for tighter laws to protect retail staff after a man dressed in a Spiderman suit kicked a store worker in the throat before punching her to the ground. The mass brawl at a supermarket in South London injured six people.

A spokesperson for the
formerly Walmart-owned supermarket chain Asda, where the incident occurred, told Insider that it was working closely with the police. "We do not tolerate any form of violence or abuse towards colleagues or customers," they said.

Worker unions say this is not an isolated incident. "
Attacks on retail workers are on the increase. Parliament needs to act now to toughen the law," Mark Wilkinson, senior organizer at the union GMB, which represents over 600,000 workers, said in a statement Friday.

UK retailers have been calling on the government to beef up laws to protect workers.
In July, a group of 100 retail businesses signed a letter urging Prime Minister Boris Johnson to take action. businessinsider.com

Reporting Inaccurate Financial Info - Fined
Tandy Leather Fined for Faulty Inventory Tracking
Tandy Leather Factory and its former CEO have been charged with using a faulty inventory tracking system, resulting in
inaccurate information being included in its financial statements.

According to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the limitations of the tracking system at the
world's largest specialty retailer of leather goods distorted Tandy's calculations for inventory, net income, and gross profit for each quarterly and annual reporting period going back to at least 2016.

In June, Tandy restated financial statements for fiscal 2017 and 2018, interim periods for 2018, and the first quarter of 2019 due to the erroneous reporting.

To settle the SEC's allegations, Tandy and former CEO Shannon Greene agreed to
pay fines of $200,000 and $25,000, respectively. Greene, 55, served as CFO for 16 years before being promoted to chief executive in February 2016.

The SEC said the key problem with the tracking system, which dated back to 2000, was that it could only hold one cost per stock-keeping unit at a time and did not retain any historical information. cfo.com

From Inmate to Security Executive
Woman goes from tough life in jail to owning security company
Staesha Anderson is
one of a few female security service owners. Now that she's thriving, she's helping others, too. Anderson grew up on Colonie Street in Albany. It looked like she would become a product of her environment.

"I started seeing other stuff and got exposed to the streets, and I headed in the wrong direction," she explained.

Her final night of hanging out would
land in her jail. That, unfortunately, caused her to miss the last chance to see her aunt who was in the hospital. That was it.

Anderson went from causing trouble to trying to prevent it, by working for a security company. She was hooked. Then she decided to give entrepreneurship a try.

In 2016,
she started Anderson Security Services, going from 3 to 40 employees before the pandemic hit. Since she was given a second chance, she never hesitates to give a second chance to those who've had it tough. wnyt.com

Philadelphia's Grim Milestone: 300+ Homicides So Far in 2021
Philadephia shooting: 1-year-old shot in c-store as crime skyrockets

120 children have been shot in Philly since start of the year resulting in 21 deaths

Video footage caught the moment a 1-year-old girl was shot in a Philadelphia convenience store as shootings escalate in the city. T
he shooting unfolded Saturday in a West Philadelphia convenience store, with surveillance footage showing gunfire coming from both inside and outside of the store.

The girl is expected to survive the injury, and
bullet holes are still visible at the store. Choudary said the shooting left her fearful for her safety in the city.

The crime comes as homicides in the City of Brotherly Love soar this year, with
304 murders logged and more than 1,200 people shot. At least three dozen people were shot in Philadelphia over the weekend, including three fatally.

Earlier this month,
Philadelphia broke a decade-long record for passing the grim 300-homicide milestone this early in a year. Additionally, more than 120 children have been shot in the city since the start of the year, 6 ABC's Action News Data Journalism Team reported, with 21 of them dying.

Shootings and other violent crimes have also escalated in other cities across the nation, including in Chicago, where the
number of shooting victims increased 70% in March alone when compared to March 2020. foxnews.com

Putin Blinks - Might Even Be a First - Or at Least the first Public Blink
Kaseya Offers Customers Decryption Key for Massive Ransomware Attack
The remote management software company
will not disclose the source of the decryption key, but at least one company has confirmed that it works.

Remote management software firm Kaseya announced on July 22 that the company has obtained a universal decryption key for the ransomware that affected 50 to 60 managed service providers and more than 1,000 of those MSPs' downstream customers.

The Florida-based company confirmed that the decryption key - which Kaseya referred to as a software "tool" - successfully recovered systems encrypted by the ransomware. Kaseya is working with a third party, Emisoft, to reach out to affected customers and their clients and unlock any encrypted data. darkreading.com

Editor's Note: Over reported article by now - but being out Friday I couldn't resist.
The man didn't get there and hold on for as long as he has by being stubborn or not knowing when to take action.

With 60 MSP's, over 1,000 customers, the pipeline, and critical infrastructure attacked, impacted, and threatened at a time when public opinion on both sides fed-up with a relatively small young group literally holding everybody up on the internet highway and then to be told we're going to start attacking. Putin took action plane and simple. Let's hope it's the beginning of the end or at least a slowdown. Just my thoughts. -Gus Downing

White House Views Ransomware Attacks as Terrorism
Biden Administration Responds to Geopolitical Cyber Threats

In response to growing concerns regarding the recent uptick in large-scale, nation-state-backed ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure, the Biden administration is taking new action to tackle the evolving challenges posed by ransomware attacks.

All "flavors" of customizable ransomware toolkits can be found for sale on the Dark Web. While already a troubling concept to consider, such offerings have facilitated
the fast and massive global proliferation of ransomware toolkits.

Task Force Takes All-Hands-on-Deck Approach

In light of the significant national security implications surrounding repeated ransomware strikes against critical infrastructure, the Biden administration recently announced plans for
the deployment of a cross-government ransomware task force. This task force, composed of an interagency group of senior security officials, will help to further facilitate defensive capabilities to protect against attacks by promoting data security resilience among critical infrastructure entities.

The task force will seek to
coordinate with US allies to direct any offensive responses against evolving attack campaigns, while simultaneously working to disrupt ransom payments proffered on various cryptocurrency platforms.

Additionally, the US Department of Justice announced
plans to elevate ransomware investigations to the same level of priority as terrorist attacks, granting greater access to government resources to assist in mitigation efforts.

Security Concerns Spark Geopolitical Tensions

Many recent ransomware attacks are believed to have
originated in countries that are adversarial to the US. This poses additional challenges. The very clandestine nature of the attacks, in addition to the anonymity surrounding payment, make any kind of accountability difficult to impose. As expected, Putin has dismissed accusations against Moscow as unfounded. However, several US government officials have commented that even as Putin is more than likely completely aware of the criminal activity stemming from within his country's borders, these gangs are so autonomous that Putin himself may be powerless to truly disrupt them.

Furthermore, the Biden administration has also
accused the Chinese government of helping to facilitate various cyberattacks including ransomware, extortion, theft, and even crypto-jacking.

Only time will tell if the geopolitical posturing between these superpowers will result in a digital détente. darkreading.com

Remote Work & Cyberattacks
Why remote working leaves us vulnerable to cyber-attacks

A cyber-crime group known as REvil took meticulous care when picking the timing for its most recent attack - US Independence Day, 4 July.

They knew many
IT specialists and cyber-security experts would be on leave, enjoying a long weekend off work. Before long, more than 1,000 companies in the US, and at least 17 other countries, were under attack from hackers.

Many firms were forced into a costly downtime period as a result. Among those targeted during the incident was a well-known software provider, Kaseya.

Hacking experts warn that
such attacks are likely to become more frequent, and suggest businesses cannot afford to underestimate the hidden impact the pandemic has had on their vulnerability.

A recent survey from the UK and US-based security firm, Tessian, found that
56% of senior IT technicians believe their employees have picked up bad cyber-security habits while working from home. Worryingly, the survey found that many employees agreed with that assessment.

Nearly two in five
(39%) admitted that their cyber-security practices at home were less thorough than those practised in the office, with half admitting that this is a result of feeling less scrutinised by their IT departments now, than prior to Covid.

"One of the main mistakes we've seen is
moving company data to personal e-mail accounts," says Henry Trevelyan-Thomas, Tessian's vice-president of Customer Success.

"When you do that, it's likely you don't have any sort of two-factor authentication. This then
makes it easier for attackers to exploit that data. If data is leaked, attackers compromise it and it can end up in the wrong hands." bbc.com

Prepare For Apps to Stop Working
Reminder: Your Microsoft 365 apps soon won't work with Internet Explorer 11

Microsoft warns customers to prepare for their apps to stop working properly in IE 11.

Microsoft has issued a reminder to Microsoft 365 customers that its web apps will not work properly when using Internet Explorer 11
from August 17, 2021.

Microsoft warned customers in February to
prepare for degraded support for IE 11 in its key Office apps from August 17: it first announced the end of M365/O365 support for IE 11 on August 17, 2020.

"Beginning August 17, 2021,
Microsoft 365 apps and services will no longer support... IE11 and users may have a degraded experience, or be unable to connect to, those apps and services. These apps and services will phase out over weeks and months to ensure a smooth end of support, with each app and service phasing out on independent schedules," the latest warning notes. zdnet.com

So, Tell Me a Little about Yourself

The development of rapport is essential in communication, especially within the context of an investigative interview. However, rapport must be more than just a buzzword and a singular "step" of any interview method. Asking a subject about the weather, about their day or discussing the game from the night before are all ways to engage in communication; but they don't necessarily fulfill the maintenance of rapport throughout a conversation. This foundation of comfort and trust within a conversation is not something that can be initiated and then dismissed. Truth be told, the development of rapport is actually important from the subject's perspective as well and a key element in their decision to be cooperative during the interview.

Amazon Discrimination Investigation
Amazon pledges to investigate discrimination after internal petition wins backing of hundreds of employees

The probe comes as more than 550 workers in a cloud-computing unit supported a petition, citing "an underlying culture of systemic discrimination, harassment, bullying and bias."

Amazon has opened an investigation into
allegations regarding the culture of its cloud-computing unit, the company confirmed Thursday, after an internal petition criticized it as having "an underlying culture of systemic discrimination, harassment, bullying and bias against women and under-represented groups."

petition, signed by more than 550 employees and viewed by The Washington Post, alleges that Amazon's processes to investigate discrimination claims are "not fair, objective or transparent." It alleges the system is "set up to protect the company and the status quo, rather than the employees filing the complaints" and that employees who lodge complaints are often made vulnerable.

The petition cites a lawsuit filed in May by Cindy Warner, a gay executive in Amazon Web Services professional services business, who
accused a manager of making homophobic comments and alleged she was fired in retaliation. It also refers to a LinkedIn post last summer by Laudon Williams, a former employee of the group, who wrote that he left the company over concerns about gender and sexual-orientation discrimination.

AWS chief executive Adam Selipsky emailed the petition's authors last week that the company had hired an outside firm to investigate the allegations and that he will review the findings, though he did not commit to a time frame for the investigation.

The effort is the latest uprising from emboldened
Amazon workers unafraid to challenge company leadership. Workers have previously pressed the company to address climate change as well as improve unsafe warehouse working conditions. washingtonpost.com

Amazon Preparing to Accept Cryptocurrency?
Amazon hopes to bring crypto to customers 'as soon as possible,' as it looks to hire a new blockchain lead

Amazon seeks a leader for its digital currency and blockchain strategy and product roadmap.

Amazon is finally getting serious about crypto technologies like bitcoin, a move that
pushes the e-commerce giant into the burgeoning yet wildly volatile digital-currency space.

The company is seeking a leader to "develop Amazon's Digital Currency and Blockchain strategy and product roadmap," according to a June 22 job listing. The position is part of the "Payments Acceptance & Experience team," suggesting
Amazon might be planning to accept digital currency as a payment method.

The job post goes on: "You will leverage your domain expertise in Blockchain, Distributed Ledger, Central Bank Digital Currencies and Cryptocurrency to develop the case for the capabilities which should be developed, drive overall vision and product strategy, and gain leadership buy-in and investment for new capabilities."

In an email to Insider, an Amazon spokesperson confirmed the job posting and
the company's ambition to eventually accept cryptocurrency from its customers. businessinsider.com

Seattle, WA: Homeless bazaar selling 'stolen' clothes, booze takes over prime Seattle location
COVID mandates resulted in nearly 150 Seattle businesses permanently closing. But as the Seattle economy finally reopens, residents and tourists have a new retail outlet to buy clothing and alcohol. It's a few blocks away from Pike Place Market, occupying prime real estate near Sub Pop Records and trendy restaurants Serious Pie and Shaker + Spear. But there's a problem: It's an illegal bazaar appealing mostly to homeless people. It sells what appears to be stolen goods. And the city hasn't done anything about it yet.

The bazaar occupies the sidewalk along 3rd Avenue and Virginia Street in downtown Seattle near a busy bus stop. You can buy jeans and shirts, some hanging from the fences that line a construction project. The clothing has tags on them. You can also purchase hats, gloves, and scarves. Looking for luggage? The bazaar has got you covered. They even sell laundry detergent. An array of alcohol lines the sidewalk that is as well-stocked as most liquor stores.

So far, the city of Seattle hasn't cleared the homeless bazaar, even though the Mayor's Office was made aware of the sidewalk nuisance. It was still there on Saturday. Across the street, homeless addicts line the sidewalk harassing passersby. The Mayor's Office ignored questions on whether or not they supported efforts to remove the bazaar from the sidewalk. It's the response of an office that has given up on returning Seattle to a respectable city. mynorthwest.com

Wood County, OH: Man sentenced for stealing $145,000 from home improvement stores
A Toledo man who stole nearly $145,000 from area home improvement stores has been sentenced to prison. Marvis Jones, 37, was transferred from the jail Tuesday to the courtroom of Wood County Common Pleas Judge Matt Reger. He was indicted in March for robbery, a third-degree felony; burglary, a third-degree felony; three counts theft, all fifth-degree felonies; and failure to comply with an order or signal of a police officer, a third-degree felony. Reger said that Jones led police on a 15-mile chase with speeds in excess of 100 mph in a 70-mph zone. He ran numerous stop lights and stop signs, drove without headlights, drove left of center, and crashed into a marked patrol car.

"He did collide with a police car," Wood County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney Christopher Anderson said, but added Jones did not cause serious physical harm. Since 2007, Jones has had numerous prior convictions, including multiple domestic violence charges, forgery, attempted escape, felonious assault and retail fraud, Reger said. "Unfortunately, he does have mental health issues," and has been using drugs, said defense attorney Justin Daler. Perrysburg Township police began investigating Jones in 2020 by working with loss prevention from Lowes and Home Depot and maintaining constant updates on the vehicles he was using. sent-trib.com

Memphis, TN: Dollar Tree Employee Fatally Shoots Shoplifter, charged with 2nd Degree Murder
A Dollar Tree employee was charged with second-degree murder after police say she shot and killed a man in the store's parking lot Wednesday afternoon. Others who work at the shopping center said the man who was killed was a Dollar Tree customer, and he was shot after he shoplifted at the bargain store. "The man, he stole, I don't know, like five dollars worth of stuff, and the lady went out and shot him," one woman told NewsNation affiliate WREG.

They said Croom admitted that she shot Reed twice in the parking lot. Police, though, have not released a motive.

The Dollar Tree was closed to customers Friday, and the company released this prepared statement: "We are deeply saddened by the incident and our thoughts are with those affected, their family members, and our local community. We are cooperating fully with local law enforcement. Since there is an active investigation, we are not able to provide further comment at this time." A spokesperson for Dollar Tree said employees are not allowed to be armed on the job, and Croom is no longer an employee. newsnationnow.com

Every executive has an agenda out of absolute necessity and in the normal course of doing business. Agendas, in essence, drive performance and results. However, it's the hidden agendas that one must be on the look out for because those are the ones that do the most damage to executives and companies. And while many tend not to acknowledge them, they do exist, and finding them is the key. Dealing with them and managing them is extremely difficult and oftentimes one finds his or herself managing the after effect and not even seeing them until it's too late. Just remember one thing - If you know the stripes on a Zebra you can ride the Zebra and, if you don't know the stripes, the Zebra will ride you.
