NEW: eBay's Former CEO Denies Any Link to Cyberstalking
But Did Want to Create a Competitor to Challenge Her
Wenig says he had "no knowledge, no private understanding, no tacit approval" of
the harassment campaign.
Former eBay CEO Devin Wenig, who led the company at the time, tells Recode that
he was shocked to hear details of the campaign this week and that he gave "no
direction" nor "tacit approval" for it.
But the former eBay chief executive was at times so frustrated with coverage
from the news website in question that he on several occasions floated the idea
internally that eBay should create its own competitor publication, multiple
former eBay insiders told Recode.
"On Monday, I read the charges along with everyone else, and was shocked and
outraged," Wenig told Recode in a statement. "It is important for me to
reiterate, and an independent investigation confirmed, that I had nothing to do
with and no knowledge of the activities alleged to have occurred. There was no
direction, no knowledge, no private understanding, no tacit approval. Ever."
Still, the fact that eBay's security team allegedly felt comfortable executing
such a campaign against the blogger and her husband suggests that the leadership
team had, at best, problematic blind spots.
In court documents, copies of text messages showed
Wenig twice instructing his communications chief, Steve Wymer, to "take her
referring to the EcommerceBytes owner and writer Ina Steiner. On Thursday, Wenig
told Recode in a statement that those
texts "have been wildly misinterpreted and taken completely out of context in
some media reports."
Wymer also sent text messages with an aggressive tone such as: "We are going to
crush this lady."
Court documents also include an exchange between Wymer and the security chief
Baugh in which Baugh references an unspecified "Plan B" in relation to the
EcommerceBytes couple. Wymer expressed a willingness to manage any fallout
internally, but the messages do not indicate that Wymer had any knowledge of
what the "Plan B" entailed.
Neither Wymer nor Wenig has been charged, and authorities did not name them in
the affidavit; instead, the two were simply referred to as Executive 1 and

Allied Universal Guard Charged
In $660K Worth Of Rental Cars Stolen
Two charged in theft of 28 rental cars at BWI Airport
A man and woman were arrested Monday and charged with stealing at least 28
rental cars from BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport over six weeks in 2019.
Police said Shakierra Scott
used her position as a
security officer with Allied Universal Security Services,
a company contracted by rental car companies at BWI, to allow
Travis Scott to drive the
rental cars from the secure facility without a contract. They then sold the
rental cars, police said.
Transportation Authority Police, which has jurisdiction at the airport in
Linthicum, said they conducted a lengthy investigation into the thefts from the
BWI rental car facility in Hanover between May and July 2019.
The vehicles had a combined
value of more than $660,000.
Shakierra Scott was initially arrested in late July by the MDTA Police Special
Operations Division and charged with stealing a single vehicle. Prosecutors
opted not to take those charges to trial in September.
Both Scotts are being
held without bail in
the Anne Arundel County Detention Center on Jennifer Road. Neither has an
attorney listed for them in court records.

Some Are "Too Far Gone To Be Saved"
Coronavirus Driven Tidal Wave of Bankruptcies Is Coming
Experts foresee so many filings in the
coming months that the courts could struggle to salvage the businesses that are
Already, companies large and small are succumbing to the effects of the
Edward I. Altman, the creator of the Z score, a widely used method of predicting
business failures, estimated that this year will easily set a record for
so-called mega bankruptcies - filings by companies with $1 billion or more in
debt. And he expects the number of merely large bankruptcies - at least $100
million - to challenge the record set the year after the 2008 economic crisis.
Even a meaningful rebound in economic activity over the coming months won't stop
it, said Mr. Altman, the Max L. Heine professor of finance, emeritus, at New
York University's Stern School of Business. "The really hurting companies are
too far gone to be saved," he said.
The flood of petitions from the worst economic downturn since the Great
Depression could swamp the system, making it harder to save the companies that
can be rescued, bankruptcy experts said.

Seattle: Shooting reported in Seattle's 'CHOP' zone for second straight night
At least one person was shot on Sunday night inside Seattle's autonomous protest
zone, where demonstrators have settled during the civil unrest sparked by the
death of George Floyd at the hands of police officers.
The "CHOP zone" refers to the so-called Capitol Hill Organized Protest
zone, which was originally created as a space for nonviolent demonstration
but has descended into violence for a second straight night.

The Race to Reform Police
19 States race to reform police practices in wake of George Floyd's death
Legislatures in 19 states and the District of Columbia
have introduced more than
160 bills in the three and a half weeks
since the killing of George Floyd.
Many of the bills up for debate are broad efforts to overhaul police department
hold officers to greater account.
Others are more narrowly targeted, banning chokeholds or the use of tear gas and
rubber bullets during protests. Still more implement new training regimes meant
to cut down on the number of police interactions that end violently.
Minnesota have introduced 53 different measures,
including bills to ban so-called warrior-style training and weapons.

California Ahead of #8CANTWAIT Police Reforms
In the past week, Campaign
Zero's "#8CANTWAIT" was launched in response to George Floyd's killing
and the outcry for police reforms that followed. The campaign is a push for
eight police use-of-force reform measures and a database that tracks how these
eight policies, meant to curtail police violence, are employed in major
Zero and its advocates have urged and challenged state and local
political and law enforcement leaders to implement these eight policies.
According to the
Campaign Zero website, the fundamental basis for the
#8CANTWAIT reforms is a large correlational study of the relationship
between cities' demographic characteristics, their use of force policies and
their level of police killings of civilians. The results, the group claims, are
very clear: Adopting these policies is statistically associated with a lower
level of police killings, whether judged per person or per arrest.
The eight policies are:
1. Require "de-escalation"
2. Require a warning by officers before shooting
3. Require officers to intervene when excessive force is being used
4. Require comprehensive use of force reporting
5. Ban chokeholds and strangleholds
6. Ban shooting at moving vehicles
7. Establish and require "use of force continuum"
8. Require that all alternatives be exhausted before shooting

NYPD Detective Union President: Bail Reform Not Working
Weekly NYC Shootings Soar 358% Over Last Year, Data Shows
Two victims died in at least 21 shootings
across four NYC boroughs between Friday and Saturday, officials said.
total of 74 people were wounded in the 55 shootings,
at least 19 of them injured in more than a dozen shootings across the five
boroughs on Saturday alone. Most of that gunfire was in the Bronx; four of
those shootings were in Brooklyn, two in Queens and one in Manhattan, the NYPD
The rise in shootings has exceeded a troubling trend that started earlier this
year and comes on the heels of NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea disbanding an
anti-crime plainclothes unit that had focused on stopping people and searching
for guns. On Monday, Shea reaffirmed his commitment to disbanding the anti-crime
unit, telling NY1, "We cannot stop our way out of this problem."
NYC shootings skyrocket as court closures let pistol perps walk free
We have over 1,000 people that have been indicted on a gun possession charge,
where the cases are open, and they are walking around the streets of New York
today," Chief of Crime Control Strategies Michael LiPetri told The Post.
That tally doesn't include about 800 additional defendants who are charged with
illegally packing heat but have yet to be formally indicted when the courts
ground to a halt, LiPetri said.
"This isn't the DAs' fault. I get it," LiPetri said. "They do have a very tough
"We've never seen a higher percentage of parolee-involved incidents with

LiPetri also observed that of the 110 people shot between June 1 and June 18,
24 percent had an open court case for gun possession.

OSHA Recommends Hazard Assessments For Each Job
New OSHA Guidance Clarifies Return-to-Work Expectations
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued guidance for
reopening businesses that recommends each establishment conduct a hazard
assessment for all jobs. It also clarifies OSHA's positions on temperature
checks, coronavirus testing and face masks.
"This is fairly consistent with guidance that OSHA has already issued and posted
on its website," said Cressinda D. Schlag, an associate at Jackson Lewis in
Austin, Texas. "The challenge is how to work this guidance in with the patchwork
of orders and other guidance" from federal, state and local governments and
Among the key takeaways in the
- Employers should conduct a thorough hazard
assessment that examines the potential COVID-19 exposures for each job category
and outlines protective measures.
- Employers may perform daily temperature checks and health assessments of
employees, so long as the checks are administered transparently and fairly and
anyone performing the checks is protected from possible infection.
Masks On? What Employers Need to Know About Face Coverings at Work
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) offered some guidance
on June 10, noting that "millions of Americans will be wearing masks in their
workplace for the first time" as businesses reopen and offices repopulate after
months of stay-at-home orders. "OSHA generally recommends that employers
encourage workers to wear face coverings at work," the agency said, but it added
that employers can decide not to, "based on the specific circumstances
present at the worksite."

CISO Dialogue: How to Optimize Your Security Budget
Brett Wahlin on how can CISOs understand how
best to optimize their limited pool of security budget?
"There are many different approaches to managing a security budget, and CISOs
organize and prioritize uniquely based on the company, industry, and threats.
Three consistent areas of spending are identity and access management (IAM),
global risk and compliance (GRC), and security operations," Wahlin told me,
• IAM is always a mess because no one wants
to deal with access management, passwords, access sprawl, and so on.
• GRC is difficult because there are always
new regulations to remain compliant with; privacy, in particular, is an ongoing
• With security operations, levels of
effectiveness vary. Wahlin posed several questions for consideration. "Is it

TJX Doubling Down in Stores - Will Not Look to e-Comm as Major Leveraging Point
TJX gets just 2% of its sales from e-commerce and shut its websites during the
lockdowns. Even now, it is fulfilling online orders at a slower-than-normal
rate, frustrating some shoppers, as it adheres to safety standards that require
social distancing in its warehouses.
Mr. Herrman said e-commerce is complementary to stores, but added: “With more
attractive financial metrics in brick-and-mortar versus online, we plan to
continue growing e-commerce strategically.”
There are also economic reasons for the aversion to e-commerce by TJX and other
off-price retailers such as Ross Stores Inc., which doesn’t sell online, and
Burlington Stores Inc., which stopped doing so earlier this year, according to
analysts. It is hard for discount retailers to turn a profit when factoring in
the cost of shipping and returns. Moreover, some brands that sell to discounters
don’t want their items online where shoppers can easily search for deals,

Myles was loading groceries into his trunk Wednesday evening when two police
cars pulled up next to his car. The 26-year-old Black man said he put his hands

been accused of stealing from the store. The encounter in the parking lot of a
Holton, Kansas, Walmart went on for about 20 minutes, Lange said, while their
infant son was left in the hot car. When police told Lange she couldn't turn the
car on to keep her son from overheating, Myles said, he started recording. The
couple had stopped at the only Walmart in town to get food for dinner and
formula for their son. They used self check out and left the store without any

Your success is directly tied to the relationships you have with your stores,
with your colleagues, and with your vendors. The ability to develop, nurture,
and grow those relationships is critical if you expect to deliver the results
you need. And as in the case of all relationships, it's also about what you
bring to the table and the value you add. Oftentimes, one's biggest challenge is
usually driven by your weakest or worst relationship and over time those are the
ones that'll have the biggest impact. So take the time to access them and
remember it's never too late to try to change one.
