Peace Restored on 4th Night of Kenosha Protests

'Riot Police Nowhere to be Found'

Kenosha peaceful on fourth night of protests as riot police & armed militias stay away after deadly shooting
One day after police say a 17-year-old shot and killed two protesters and seriously wounded another in Kenosha, Wis., a fourth consecutive night of protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake was
smaller and mostly peaceful. Both police and the self-declared militia members who were ever-present on Tuesday mostly stayed away from protesters Wednesday night.

The night's demonstrations began hours after authorities named Rusten Sheskey as the officer who shot Blake, and announced an arrest and homicide charges for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who attended the protest with a group of armed men who claimed to be protecting a gas station. Sheskey, who is on administrative leave, has not been charged.

On Wednesday night, a group of about 60 to 100 people gathered in a park that's surrounded by the courthouse and other government buildings. The group chanted, and some people spray-painted art promoting peace and healing on the sidewalk. Although an eight-foot-high fence guarded the courthouse,
the riot police who repeatedly fired tear gas at protesters Tuesday were nowhere to be found.

Tuesday's night's violence prompted the White House to authorize
sending 2,000 National Guard troops from other states to Wisconsin. President Donald Trump said Wednesday in a series of tweets that "federal law enforcement and the National Guard" will be sent to Kenosha to restore law and order.

Wisconsin National Guard already has 10,000 troops. Gov. Tony Evers on Tuesday ordered 250 to Kenosha. He doubled the number Wednesday. washingtonpost.com  usatoday.com

Facebook Ignores Kenosha Militia Group's 'Call to Arms'
Facebook initially failed to remove a Kenosha militia page despite complaints

Once again, the company is facing criticism for letting people incite violence on its platform.

Facebook didn't take heed when its users sounded the alarm about a militia group issuing a "call to arms" on its platform. That call to arms came before the violence in Kenosha, Wisconsin, on Tuesday night, which left two people dead and one injured, according to a new report.

Before the shooting, at least two Facebook users flagged a page called "Kenosha Guard" for inciting violence, according to The Verge. But
the company told users that the page did not meet the company's criteria for removal. On Wednesday morning, after violence at the protests already broke out - and armed militia groups took to the streets - Facebook ended up taking down the page for violating its policies on dangerous groups. vox.com

17-year-old charged with homicide after shooting during Kenosha protests, authorities say
The shooting came as self-declared
militia members and armed counterprotesters have appeared in the city, which is reeling from days of unrest. Authorities have not said whether Rittenhouse is a member of any of the groups.

Armed civilians - many wielding AR-15-style rifles - took position near stores and businesses saying they intended to fill a vacuum left by a law enforcement. Some had stood near the gas station where Tuesday night's shooting began with a confrontation just before midnight. washingtonpost.com

Mitigation Measures Showing Effects
Here Comes Fall

US faces long road on COVID-19 amid signs of improvement
Coronavirus cases nationally are falling from their July peaks and some hard-hit states are showing signs of improvement, a hopeful sign even as the country deals with about 1,000 COVID-19 deaths every day. The positive news is still dwarfed by the negative reality of the pandemic's hold over the country.

Though the situation is not as bad as it was in July, when cases peaked around 70,000 per day, the virus is still circulating around United States at a very high level, with around 40,000 new cases per day.

Governors in many of the hardest-hit states, such as Arizona, Florida and Texas, after initially resisting action, put in place measures like closing bars and allowing local mask mandates, steps that experts say have helped those states improve.

Experts stressed that some of the improvement is from people starting to take the virus more seriously and more widespread mask wearing, after early mixed signals on that front, and that any complacency or letting up could cause another spike.

Another major question is how bad the fall will be. The coming flu season combining with the coronavirus, as students go back to school and colder weather forces more activity indoors into tighter spaces, has led to fears of another resurgence.

"Just because we're starting to see a decline doesn't mean that we've passed the point that we can start loosening those restrictions." thehill.com

COVID Safety Measures Work Against Flu Too!
Southern Hemisphere's Winter "Flu Season Knocked Down"

As flu season nears, some health experts brace for a 'twindemic'
This could be one of the worst seasons we've had from a public health perspective, with COVID and flu coming together. But it also could be one of the best flu seasons we've had," said Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

AdvertisementU.S. health officials are pushing Americans to get vaccinated against the flu in record numbers this fall, so hospitals aren't overwhelmed with a dueling "twindemic."

It's also becoming clear that wearing masks, avoiding crowds and keeping your distance are protections that are "not specific for COVID.
They're going to work for any respiratory virus," Redfield said.

The evidence: Ordinarily, South Africa sees widespread influenza during the Southern Hemisphere's winter months of May through August. This year, testing tracked by the country's
National Institute of Communicable Diseases is finding almost none. That's unprecedented. latimes.com

3 workplace COVID-19 trends that are likely here to stay

Increased attention to safety is here to stay

Employers also may see additional attention from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration and the National Labor Relations Board, Holstein and Robertson noted.

"OSHA is not all hard hats," said Holstein; "there's more to workplace safety." 
OSHA can and is regulating cleaning, social distancing and more to keep employees safe from COVID-19 exposure in the workplace, she said.

What's more, because the agency has been criticized for
declining to issue emergency standards and instead favoring recommendations, state and local governments have filled that void, Robertson said; "And you're ending up with this crazy patchwork. You're ending up with a huge amount of regulation at the state and local level."

Hurricane Laura Hits Gulf Coast


Hurricane Laura strikes Louisiana as Category 4 storm, battering Lake Charles area and bringing flood threat

Hundreds of thousands without power after 150 mph winds slam the gulf coast

Hurricane Laura caused extensive damage in Lake Charles after making landfall early Thursday in southwest Louisiana as a Category 4 hurricane. Windows were blown out, roofs were peeled off and a storm surge flooded many roads and homes. Brandon Clement, a storm chaser with Live Storms Media, used a drone to survey the damage in Lake Charles after Hurricane Laura roared through the city.

The storm made landfall early Thursday as a Category 4 hurricane, with sustained winds of 150 m.p.h., and weakened steadily as it swept inland. Hundreds of thousands of people were without power. nola.com

Storm surge may last for another day
The storm surge in southern Louisiana and the Lake Charles area may last for another day, while
hurricane-force winds reach north to the border of Louisiana and Arkansas, the director of the National Hurricane Center, Ken Graham, said early Thursday. nytimes.com

Cartel Used Dallas Retailer to Launder $10M in Drug Money
28 Charged in Cartel Money Laundering Scheme
A Mexican cartel boss and 27 coconspirators have been charged with laundering more than $10 million in drug proceeds through a local clothing retailer.

A federal grand jury charged 28 individuals connected to
Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generacion - one of Mexico's most violent and powerful drug cartels - with conspiracy to launder monetary instruments and other financial, drug, and gun crimes, including conspiracy to distribute methamphetamine, conspiracy to distribute heroin, and possession of a firearm by an undocumented alien.

According to court documents, Jose Valdovinos Jimenez, a plaza boss who goes by "La Roca" or "The Rock," allegedly conspired with his codefendants to smuggle hundreds of kilograms of methamphetamine and heroin across the Mexican border, distribute the drugs within the United States, launder the proceeds, and then transfer the money back to CJNG leaders.

At Mr. Jimenez's direction, mid- and upper-level dealers
transported drug proceeds to Yoli's Western Wear, a clothing retailer located on Buckner Boulevard in Dallas. The 23-year-old manager of Yoli's, Ivan Noe Valerio, and his family members then counted the money and separated it into thousands of transactions, sending it through a money remitter back to CJNG in Mexico.

If convicted, Mr. Jimenez and Mr. Valero face life in federal prison.

During the course of this investigation, agents seized approximately 700 kilograms of methamphetamine, approximately 80 kilograms of heroin, and approximately $500,000 in drug proceeds.
Dozens of the charged defendants have already been arrested. justice.gov

Victoria's Secret's 'Sex Trafficking Tags' Video's Go Viral - 3M Hearts on TikTok
Victoria's Secret responds to viral videos claiming its bras track customers
Victoria's Secret has responded to a wave of videos circulating on social media claiming that the company has implanted chips inside bras to track customers. One TikTok video in June generated nearly three million hearts, and there now more than a dozen YouTube videos making this claim. Some conspiracy theorists have even referred to these trackers as "sex trafficking tags."

According to Victoria's Secret,
these are simply RFID tags, which are commonly used in the fashion industry to track and manage inventory throughout the supply chain. In a statement provided to Fast Company, a spokeswoman for the company said: "Like many other retailers, this technology helps us deliver a great store experience by ensuring we have the right products available for our customers. We only use this technology in our back room and sales floors to help us manage inventory so that our associates can efficiently support our customers' needs."

The claim is not new, but it
seems to have found new life this week with recently posted videos, some of which have attracted thousands of views on YouTube.

This is just the latest scandal Victoria's Secret has found itself in over the past few months and years. In February, the New York Times published an exposé about the toxic workplace culture at the company. Last year, the
Times revealed how Jeffrey Epstein, the disgraced financier who committed suicide in prison, used his relationship with Victoria's Secret's founder to lure women and abuse them. fastcompany.com

Vendor Risk & Your Supply Chain
6 Signs Your Supply Chain Risk Just Shot Up
Risk levels are not steady states. Here are six indications that the danger posed by your supply chain is headed in the wrong direction.

Supply chains, many stretching around the globe and some made up of tens of thousands of links, are critical to modern business. Strong supply chains allow for the economical development of products ranging from stuffed toys to enterprise applications. Unfortunately, the same supply chains that make business possible can also make it a far riskier proposition.
Ransomware Attack on a Vendor - When that attack is ransomware, the bad-sign quotient goes up dramatically because attackers are using the initial attacks to exfiltrate data and spread laterally -- and sometimes spread beyond the victim's walled garden.

Lack of Mobile Visibility at a Vendor - "Mobile devices are used across the entire supply chain, from research to delivery, to increase efficiency and convenience for employees," Schless says. "Every time an employee walks into your facility or logs into your network, their mobile device has just as much access as any other endpoint."

He points out that incorporating a device health-check into mobile-device management (MDM) implementations is an important step for supply chain vendors that might be coming into your network perimeter. And even vendors that don't have direct access to your network should be able to demonstrate that they understand the state of their mobile devices.

Lack of Transparency at a Supplier - If a supplier is unwilling or unable to provide transparency into their risks, it's a clear sign that your risk from that third party has risen by many degrees. The question for many in the supply chain is not only how transparent they're willing to be, but how transparent they're able to be. darkreading.com

4 Risk Mitigation Principles for the Remote Workforce

Jeff Schilling of Teleperformance on Risk Management During COVID-19 Pandemic

Jeff Schilling, global CISO at Teleperformance, a Paris-based company offering digitally integrated business services worldwide, describes four principles for mitigating security risks for the remote workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Those principles, which he spells out in this video interview with Information Security Media Group, are:

 Maintain parity of technical security controls between bricks-and-mortar and work-from-home environments;

 Change your business processes to reduce the risks in the shift to a remote workforce;

 Keep in mind that "cyber threat actors will never let a good crisis go to waste";

 Update your information security certifications, especially your Payment Card Industry Report of Compliance.

He also discusses how he recalibrated his own business model to deploy a remote international workforce of over 180,000 and stresses the need to use caution when selecting security vendor partners. careersinfosecurity.com

Pandemic Impacting the Cannabis Industry
New normal means new challenges for cannabis companies
For the cannabis industry specifically, our new norm means a business environment in which pandemic health concerns are here to stay, as are the effects on staffing and customer interactions. Cannabis sales may be
rising in general, and the industry has secured an "essential" business status to stay open as other businesses such as bars and casinos are forced to close.

But the overall global economy is probably going to be depressed far into 2021, if not longer. That means, that investment capital of all kinds will be more difficult to secure, even in a strong growth market like cannabis. And when capital is tight, there's an inclination for the big players to form partnerships and mergers that put even more competitive pressures on smaller operators.

The digital shift
As states and municipalities enacted stay-at-home orders in the spring, dispensaries realized the importance of optimizing digital ordering. As POS stations were cut by half to meet social distancing requirements, transaction times would need to be reduced to make up for that lost revenue. Utilizing online platforms such as I Heart Jane is one way to reduce transaction times by up to 50%.

Brick-and-mortar: Don't count it out
Even with digital sales increasing because of the pandemic, walk-up traffic at stores still drives the vast majority of sales, and the in-store experience cannot be left as an afterthought. cannabisbusinessexecutive.com

"Abuse of Power Market Play"

Etsy CEO says Amazon is trying to 'wipe out its competitors' by backing California consumer protection bill
Etsy CEO Josh Silverman on Tuesday accused Amazon of "taking bold steps to wipe out its competitors" by backing a new California consumer protection bill.

Amazon on Friday broke away from its peers when it voiced conditional support for the bill, AB 3262, which seeks to hold "electronic retail marketplaces" to the same liability standards applied to brick-and-mortar retailers. The bill has garnered opposition from Etsy, EBay's public policy arm and a slew of industry groups who say existing law already protects consumers and that it will stifle small businesses that sell products online.

Silverman argues Amazon's support of the bill is in bad faith, calling it an "
abuse of power market play."  cnbc.com

Shootings & Deaths

Las Vegas, NV: Metro Police investigating deadly shooting involving Security Guard at 7-Eleven
The shooting occurred late Wednesday night at the 7-Eleven on Las Vegas Boulevard near Nellis Air Force Base. Metro Police say a security guard pulled the trigger after getting into a struggle with a man who was refused entry to the store. The security guard was at the store to limit the number of people in the store at the same time. Lt. Ray Spencer said it is unclear why the man in his 50s and his wife were not let in the store while other shoppers were. The man did enter the store and that's when the security guard and a store clerk struggled with the man. "In front of the store, there is additional pushing and shoving that takes place at which time the security officer fires one round, striking the victim, causing his death at the front of the store," Spencer said. Metro detectives are talking with witnesses and reviewing video. The security guard is at Metro headquarters being interviewed. 8newsnow.com

Energy is the primary force behind success and without it mediocrity or failure is almost guaranteed. The ability to move things forward and influence change requires energy and there's a direct correlation to the amount of it and to the degree of success. It's great to start off energized and gung ho about a project or initiative, but it's critical to maintain the energy thru to completion. As one senior executive has said, "there's no bad plan -- it's always a matter of execution" and execution is all about energy. So when you think you've lost your energy, take a break, do something different, and give your mind a chance to re-energize. Because the worst thing you can do is to try to execute without it.
