Bloody Weekend in America
At Least 6 Killed, 49 Wounded In Chicago Weekend Gun Violence
gun violence in Chicago
claimed the lives of six people and wounded at least 49 others, including
a 14-year-old, a 15-year-old and two 16-year-olds.
The violence included a mass
shooting at 10:08 p.m. Saturday, in which four people were wounded at a
large gathering in the 2800 block of West 12th Place, in Douglass Park in the
Lawndale community. Witnesses were uncooperative, so it was unknown who fired
the shots or from whence they came.
All four victims self-transported to Mount Sinai Hospital in fair condition. A
36-year-old woman, a 39-year-old man, and a 46-year-old man were each shot in
the leg, while a 21-year-old man was shot in the arm.
Last weekend in Chicago, seven
people were killed and 39 others were wounded.
Four killed, four injured in weekend shootings

challenging threat environment leading up to and following the
20th Anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks
as well religious holidays we assess could serve as a catalyst for acts of
targeted violence. These threats include those posed by domestic terrorists,
individuals and groups engaged in grievance-based violence, and those inspired
or motivated by foreign terrorists and other malign foreign influences. These
actors are increasingly exploiting online forums to influence and spread violent
extremist narratives and promote violent activity. Such threats are also
exacerbated by impacts of the ongoing global pandemic, including grievances over
public health safety measures and perceived government restrictions.

LA's Civilian Police Oversight Board Says: 'We
Need More Officers'
Between defund and defend, L.A. tries new tactics, bigger budget for cops
Amid a budget crisis late last year, the city considered laying off nearly 1,000
officers. But as crime rose and federal pandemic relief funds came in, the mayor
increased the Los Angeles Police Department's (LAPD) budget 3% in April.
And the new head of the civilian oversight board said last month that the
city needed more officers amid a surge in homicides.
"If you want to abolish the police, you're talking to the wrong mayor," he said.
"If you want to move
backward toward a failed us-and-them strategy ... you've come to the wrong
The push to defund plays out weekly outside the Los Angeles Police Protective
League, the union for city officers. There, on an August afternoon, Black Lives
Matter-Los Angeles protesters stood before a mural adorned with the images of
activists — their painted eyes facing the union hall like watchdogs — and a list
of community needs with the word "police" crossed out.
The LAPD argues otherwise. It says it's
down more than 500 sworn, deployed officers
— from 9,958 to 9,401 — since Floyd's death,
a staffing level that union spokesman Tom Saggau called "wholly inadequate."
Amid last year's cutbacks, the union pushed back. It launched websites, erected
billboards targeting some council members, and ran ads asking city leaders what
their plan was to keep people safe. "The
folks who have advocated defunding in Los Angeles have lost,"
NYC's Controversial Return to Gang Takedown
As Shootings Increased, N.Y.C. Returned to Disputed Tactic: Gang Takedowns
authorities are responding to a wave of gun violence. But their anti-gang
tactics have long faced criticism for unfairly targeting young Black people.
police say the majority of the
more than 2,500 shootings recorded since the beginning of last year can
linked to gangs. And this year, as shootings have risen from historic
lows in 2019 to their highest level in a decade, a chorus of leading officials —
including Mayor Bill de Blasio and Eric Adams, the Democratic candidate to
replace him — have joined the Police Department in
vowing to dismantle gangs as the surest strategy for reducing gun violence.
anti-gang tactics used by the authorities have long faced criticism from
law enforcement experts, civil rights advocates and even some prosecutors.
Targeting gangs relies on police intelligence gathering that critics say is
often unreliable and classifies far too many young men of color as gang members,
sowing mistrust in communities and even hardening gang ties.
The takedown was emblematic of the
hard-line tactics that the authorities are now emphasizing. But legal
experts say that approach is better suited to taking down drug cartels and the
Mafia than New York’s mostly young, Black and Latino street crews.

New Mask Mandate Takes Effect Today
Illinois Mask Mandate: New Indoor Mask Requirements Take Effect Monday
Illinois' reinstated mask mandate takes effect Monday,
requiring residents over the age of 2 to wear face coverings in indoor settings.
Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker re-issued the mask mandate for the state Thursday,
saying the state is "running out of time as our hospitals run out of beds."
The new indoor mask guidelines, similar to mandates already handed down in Cook
County and Chicago, will require
facial coverings in indoor settings, regardless of COVID vaccination status.
"Illinois will join several other states that have reinstituted statewide indoor
mask requirements, regardless of vaccination status, effective on Monday,"
Pritzker said in his announcement. "Masks work. Period."
He noted that while face coverings are not required outdoors, "masks

Treating Unvaxxed Workers as Smokers
Surcharges for unvaccinated workers gain momentum, but questions remain
The strategy is more commonly associated with employees who smoke and is

Frustrated by the emergence of the delta variant and a U.S. vaccination rate
that has barely budged in the last few months, some employers are
The focus has shifted toward a strategy commonly associated with smoking:
health plan surcharges. Inquiries about increasing health insurance
contribution costs for employees who choose not to get vaccinated are
increasing, according to Wade Symons, partner at HR consulting firm Mercer and
co-leader of its regulatory resource group. After first hearing murmurs from
employers about vaccination surcharges, Symons said Mercer has been getting "at
least one inquiry a day, sometimes more, about this concept."
The idea is not so much a consideration of last resort for employers as it is a
potential way for those who have dangled incentives — or for those who have
stayed "on the sidelines" as it pertains to COVID-19 vaccinations — to boost
workplace health and safety, he added. It also may be an alternative to a
Slow Return of Workers Impacts NYC Retailers
Shopping is delayed in NYC; only 4 out of 10 workers to return by October

Hurricane Ida Batters Louisiana, Impacts Businesses
Over 1M Lose Power - Ida Downgraded to Tropical
Ida Batters Louisiana, New Orleans Businesses Shut Down
Ida made landfall on Sunday and battered this city and much of southeast
knocking out power, downing trees and causing havoc as the region’s most
severe storm since
Hurricane Katrina exactly 16 years earlier.
Ida arrived at Port Fourchon, 60 miles south of New Orleans, at midday. It was a
Category 4 hurricane, the second-highest storm classification. It brought
pounding rain, sustained
winds of 150 miles an hour and dangerous sea surges.
All of New Orleans had lost power by Sunday night, an Entergy spokesman
More than 1 million customers statewide were without power, according to
trackers said that even after several hours, the hurricane remained as strong as
when it made landfall, though by early Monday morning it was downgraded, first
to Category 1, then to a tropical storm.
Restaurants, bars and other businesses in and around New Orleans had been closed
since Saturday afternoon.
Many were boarded up and fortified with sandbags as early as Saturday.
Even 24-7 dive bars such as Ms. Mae’s and Brothers 3 closed Saturday morning.
Only a Walmart, a Winn-Dixie and a few other stores were open Saturday in
the city’s uptown neighborhood.
Home Depot's Disaster Response Team
The Home Depot Activated Disaster Response Team as Hurricane Ida Approached
As Hurricane Ida entered the Gulf of Mexico and threatened parts of the U.S.,
The Home Depot activated its disaster response team to support communities
in the path.
More than 250 associates from the company’s merchandising, operations and
supply chain teams are working around the clock to move truckloads of
products to stores in Louisiana and Mississippi. Products like
generators, water, tarps, batteries and flashlights are moving into stores in
the area. Stores will remain open as long as it’s safe
to do so.
“We’re praying for minimal impacts from Hurricane Ida,” said Kelly Mayhall,
president of the southern division. “We know our customers are counting on us to
help them prepare and potentially recover, and we’re so grateful for how our
associates are serving their communities.”
The Home Depot Foundation is working with national nonprofit partners including
Team Rubicon, Convoy of Hope, Operation Blessing, All Hands and Hearts and ToolBank Disaster
Service. Ahead of disaster season, the Foundation and its nonprofit partners
strategically position emergency supplies in warehouses nationwide for quick
deployment to impacted areas. The Home Depot Foundation has committed
nearly $5 million to disaster response in 2021.

of destruction in a community - an unofficial system known as the Waffle
House Index. In this way, Waffle House gives authorities a clearer picture of
where help is needed most, McClatchy reported.
if a community’s Waffle House is out of operation, the community is probably in
very bad shape.
So, when several locations shut down in preparation for an incoming Category 4
hurricane like Ida, residents
take notice. “Seriously a worrying sign ahead of #Ida,” a local news
tweeted. “The Waffle House in Morgan City is closed until the storm passes.”
At least four other locations have also
closed in Louisiana,
in Houma, Raceland, Thibodaux, and Boutte, the Waffle House website
shows. All five of the closed Waffle Houses are in
Hurricane Ida’s path, based on National Hurricane Center predictions.
New Orleans' Storm Risk-Reduction System
Hurricane Ida: Did New Orleans’s Flood System Work?
Ida is presenting
the biggest test yet of the storm risk-reduction system that was installed in
the New Orleans metro area after Hurricane Katrina. Since 2005, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers has worked with other local, state and federal agencies
to build a roughly
$14.5 billion system of levees and other protections.
The system consists of flood walls and levees to protect the area from storm
surge (or abnormal sea level rise) and a pump system to siphon out excess water.
A flood wall is usually a concrete structure, while a levee is made from earthen
material. The Army Corps raised levees and flood walls all around the metro area
and fortified them with vegetation to lower the likelihood of a “breach,” where
a wall breaks down and water can flow into the city.
“There’s no comparison with what we have now and what we had 16 years ago,” said
The system covers a 133-mile perimeter around the New Orleans metro area,
which encompasses Saint Charles, Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard and Upper
Plaquemines parishes. During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, there were more than 50
failures of the levees and flood walls, which caused flooding in 80% of New
Orleans and all of St. Bernard Parish.
A storm surge warning was in effect from Morgan City, La., to the
Alabama-Florida border, according to the National Hurricane Center.
Forecasters said Ida could bring up to 15 feet of storm surge to some areas.
It could be the first time the levees have been overtopped since the upgrades

Updated List of Federal FRT Usage
One day it will be mainstream
US federal agencies plan to increase facial recognition use, GAO report says
Three-quarters of U.S. federal agencies surveyed for a Government Accountability
Office (GAO) report are already using facial recognition and more than 40
percent plan to use more of the technology by 2023.
Usage spanned law enforcement to staff unlocking work smartphones. Eighteen of
the 24 agencies surveyed used facial recognition technology (FRT) in 2020 and a
nineteenth, the Department of Transportation, also dealt with the technologies
via research. Digital access was the most common usage with 16 agencies claiming
application for digital access or cybersecurity, of which 14 agencies authorized
staff to use FRT to unlock their agency-issued smartphones.
Six agencies used FRT in criminal investigations or to identify victims; five
used it for surveilling locations for individuals on watchlists.
Ten including the Department of Justice used FRT-related research and
development. Four used the technologies for national security and defense and
five for physical security such as accessing buildings.
Two agencies are testing face biometric verification to log in to certain
government web services.

Getting Freight Out of O'Hare Has Gotten Real Bad
'Stealing your own freight: O’Hare cargo delays force drastic measures'
Logistics company sends in rescue
teams, buys off warehouse personnel to retrieve shipments
logistics service providers in Chicago are resorting to a number of new tactics,
including bribery and undercover extraction missions,
to avoid worsening congestion that is trapping shipments for more than a week at
O’Hare International Airport’s cargo terminals, according to industry
Shipment volumes at O’Hare have
exploded in the past 18 months
as businesses turn to air transport for critical imports of personal protective
equipment, replenishment of depleted inventories and to overcome manufacturing
and ocean supply chain disruptions.
Facilities are short-staffed and don’t have adequate space to swiftly process
mountains of cargo offloaded
from the giant freighters that have predominated since COVID devastated
lower-capacity passenger flights.
Freight management companies say
backlogs are so severe that warehouses are storing rows
and rows of containers in parking lots and that it can take up to 10 days to
retrieve a shipment. Delivery trucks often sit in line for hours waiting for a
load and some local carriers are refusing to get freight at certain airlines.
"The situation is so bad that one 3PL is essentially orchestrating heists of its
own freight." “When you’re paying people off in cash, they’ll let you do it.
That’s the only way you can get your freight.”
Perfect opportunity and timing for a big heist
and what's to say they don't take some of yours. The gangs got to know what's
happening. They'll be a heist and we may never hear about it. Next to staffing
stores this is probably one of the two top priorities right now. Just getting
the merchandise to the stores. Just a thought Gus Downing

Target Goes All in With Store Within a Store
100 Ulta Beauty's & 160 Disney Stores + Mini CVS Health's + Scaled Down
In a way, Target’s partnerships are turning its stores into mini-malls where
shoppers can conveniently browse a variety of products under one roof.
Shoppers can get a vaccine or fill a prescription at a scaled-down CVS Health.
They can order a Frappuccino at a Starbucks cafe. They can find dedicated
displays of Apple gadgets and Levi Strauss denim. And they can try a lipstick
sample or get beauty advice at mini Ulta Beauty shops, which
began opening in select stores earlier this month.
“One of the trends that I think they’re leaning into is ‘How do you create more
uniqueness and differentiation for your brand’ and kind of elevate it from the
typical sort of merchandising?” he said. “What’s that extra reason to go to the
store or go to the website or perhaps, buy something else on your trip?”
New York's Ban-the-Box Different Than Other Jurisdictions
More detailed and very defined limitations and
Most New York City Employers Must Revise Background Screening Processes
expanding existing employment protections under the New York City Fair Chance
Act (FCA), also known as the ban-the-box law, became effective on July 29.
Among other changes discussed below, the amendments (i) affect the process
for taking into account the criminal history of job applicants―including
requiring all background checks other than criminal ones, such as a reference or
education check, be completed before a conditional offer is made if a
criminal background check is to then be run―and (ii) require a full analysis
of pending criminal arrests and charges of both job applicants and employees.
These two requirements set New York City apart from
other jurisdictions with ban-the-box obligations. The New York City
Commission on Human Rights has published
legal enforcement guidance clarifying these expanded protections.
Two-step background check required. A criminal background check can only
be performed and evaluated after an employer makes a conditional offer of
employment to an applicant. Thus, employers must conduct all noncriminal checks,
such as employment history, academic records and references, before making a
conditional offer of employment. Only after making a conditional offer may an
employer check an applicant's criminal history.

available to the public.
In addition, Amazon announced that it will offer qualified
Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers a free multi-factor authentication (MFA)
device designed to further secure their environments and protect their most
sensitive assets from cyberattacks.
“A fundamental problem when addressing current cybersecurity threats is
education, which is why we’re excited to share our Amazon Security Awareness
training for free, to help organizations and individuals understand how to
navigate and fight against security events,” said Steve Schmidt, chief
information security officer of AWS. “And by giving qualified AWS customers
access to free MFA tokens, we’ve made it even easier for companies to use this
powerful tool to protect their data and important technology assets.”
Amazon security awareness
Amazon designed a digestible and succinct curriculum, used with its employees,
to anticipate and educate people about possible security threats. Businesses and
organizations can also build their own solutions on top of the Amazon training
to suit their needs. The Amazon Security Awareness training includes videos and
online assessments. The materials follow proven neuroscience and adult learning
principles to enhance content retention and they are regularly updated as
digital attack techniques evolve.
Starting in October, qualified AWS account holders can receive an MFA device at
no additional cost, providing customers with a stronger security posture. AWS
customers with access to the AWS Management Console can authenticate themselves
by typing their passwords and then simply touching the MFA security token
plugged into their computer’s USB port. The free MFA token adds a layer of
security to protect customers’ AWS accounts against phishing, session hijacking,
man-in-the-middle, and malware attacks. Customers can also use their MFA devices
to safely access multiple AWS accounts, as well as other token-enabled
applications, such as GitHub, Gmail, and Dropbox.
After 4th Hack in 5 Yrs T-Mobile's CEO Issues
T-Mobile CEO apologizes after latest hack
The Biden administration is putting more
pressure on companies to step up their cybersecurity practices.
The chief executive of America’s second-largest wireless network apologized to
millions of customers who had their data stolen in a hack of the company’s
"We didn’t live up to
the expectations we have for ourselves to protect our customers,”
CEO Mike Sievert said in a
blog post Friday.
The breach is the fourth in five years for T-Mobile,
according to Allie Mellen, a security and risk analyst at research firm
Forrester. That suggests the company’s security just isn’t up to the task,
despite the general rise in attacks.
In his blog post, Sievert said the company had
hired cybersecurity firm Mandiant and consultants KPMG to advise it on improving
“We are confident that there is no ongoing risk to customer data from this
breach,” Sievert said. “We’re fully committed to take our security efforts to
the next level as we work to rebuild trust.”

months coming from T-Mobile.
Crypto ATMs multiply despite challenges to the currency
The biggest cryptocurrency ATM companies, each with thousands of kiosks
nationwide, just keep growing despite the volatility the assets have experienced
over the past year.
CoinFlip, Coin Cloud and Bitcoin Depot have all made announcements in recent
weeks that underscored their ability to keep attracting consumers who want to
use, store, save or collect cryptocurrencies as people worldwide rethink
traditional financial systems.
The 21st Century digital payment innovation
tracked by blockchain technology
keeps luring buyers even though it’s little used for everyday consumer goods and
still carries a cybercrime taint.
Those negatives are countered by a new generation’s distrust of legacy financial
institutions and a belief that the new non-governmental currency may help
overcome worldwide inequities and difficulties in moving money over borders.
After "Operation Ironside's" Huge 290+ Organized
Crime Arrests Aussie LE Gets Online Warrant Powers
Police get online account takeover, data disruption powers
"extraordinary" bill passes Australia's federal parliament.
have been granted “extraordinary” new online account takeover powers
after controversial legislation
designed to tackle
serious criminal activity on the internet
Surveillance Legislation Amendment (Identify and Disrupt) Bill 2020
was signed off by the Senate on Wednesday morning after clearing the House of
Representatives with 60 amendments [pdf]
on Tuesday night.
The bill grants the Australian Federal Police and Australian Criminal
new powers to combat
serious crime enabled by anonymising technology using three new warrants:
network activity, data disruption and account takeover.
With the warrants, both agencies can take control of a person’s online account
to gather evidence about serious offences without consent, as well as add, copy,
delete or alter material to disrupt criminal activity and collect intelligence
from online networks.
Passage of the bill was recommended by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on
Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) earlier this month alongside
33 changes that sought
to limit the potential use of the bill and improve oversight.
“In effect, this bill would allow spy agencies to modify, add, copy or delete
your data with a data disruption warrant; collect intelligence on your online
activities with a network activity warrant; [and] take over your social media
and other online accounts and profile with an account takeover warrant.”
This came about after
a huge dark web case
earlier this year called
where federal law enforcement
arrested more than 290
people in a organized crime group.
Where Operation Ironside confirmed the persistent and ever evolving threat of
and organized crime
– and the reliance of
these networks on the dark web and
to conceal their offending.”
Here's one for the good
guys. By the way this was a bipartisan effort that addressed the privacy and
oversight concerns by limiting it's usage to "serious offences" that carry a
maximum of at least seven years in jail and other specified offences.
T-Mobile hack: Everything you need to know
Debunking myths about consumer expectations around mobile apps security
Register Now for the 2021 RH-ISAC Summit - September 28-29
LP/AP senior: If your retailer is a member you might want to consider attending
yourself or sending one of your team members who works with cybersecurity on
investigations or e-commerce fraud.
Especially now with the increased ransomware attacks and data beaches and the
corresponding increased attention from law enforcement. Cross pollinating and
building those relationships could pay off long term.
Threats? Promises? I would never…
One of the major contributors to false,
involuntary or coerced confessions is the use of threats or promises made by the
interviewer. In some criminal cases we have seen threats of the death penalty or
long sentences in effort to obtain cooperation from the subject. We have also
seen threats to the subject in the way of a family member or friend being deemed
culpable if an admission is not obtained. Promises are also heard in a variety
of contexts, including minimizing potential consequences or granting the subject
certain liberties to incentive a confession. Obviously, these examples are the
opposite of the standard that ethical interviewers represent. The combination of
threats and promises transition the subject from a fear of consequences for
non-cooperation to an incentive to confess with the mentality that the
punishment will be minimal.

100,000 Drone Deliveries in a Single Weekend
Google Now Owns ‘Largest Residential Drone Delivery Service In The World’
drone delivery service
will complete 100,000 deliveries this weekend,
the company says, and is growing fast: 500% last year, and more deliveries in
the first quarter of 2021 than in all of 2020 combined. That’s probably just the
beginning, because Google says it is expanding this year, including in the
Just one of its delivery operations, in Queensland, Australia, is
the largest residential drone delivery service in the world,
according to Google.
There, Google Wing’s completed deliveries have included: 10,000 cups of coffee,
2,700 sushi rolls, 1,000 loaves of bread, and 1,200 “hot chooks” (Australian for
Wing’s drones are a sort of hybrid drone/fixed wing aircraft that cruise at
about 45 meters (100 feet). They carry small packages: up to about 1.2 kilograms
or just under 3 pounds, and deliver within about a six-mile radius, with
delivery in under six minutes. (90% of last-mile deliveries are under five
pounds, the company says.)
The drones don’t actually land; they descend to around seven meters or 23 feet,
then lower and release the package automatically.
What’s completely obvious from looking at that shortlist of some of Google
Wing’s deliveries is that
drone delivery is a complete game-changer.
Not only did
Google Wing ramp service 500% last year and double that in a single quarter,
the company says that August — which is not yet over — has been another record
month. And a Virginia Tech study in Google’s first drone delivery region in the
U.S., in Christiansburg, Virginia, found that
90% of those who were exposed to the service liked it and supported it.
E-Commerce Sticker Shock
Online shopping used to be immune to inflation. Not anymore
Sticker shock has even invaded the land of falling prices: online shopping.
Through economic booms and busts, e-commerce has long been virtually immune to
inflationary pressures. Average online prices dropped every year between
2015 and 2019. But Covid ended that once-reliable trend.
Online prices jumped 3.1%
year-over-year in July,
according to a report released Thursday by Adobe. Out of 18 categories captured
by the Adobe Digital Economy Index, all but six saw price jumps last month. The
price gains were most dramatic in July for online clothing, over-the-counter
drugs and sporting goods.
"Pre-Covid, I don't think there was any inflation. It was exclusively
deflationary," Austan Goolsbee, the former Obama adviser who helped Adobe
develop the index, told CNN.
This isn't a one-month glitch. Online prices began rising soon after the
pandemic erupted in March 2020 and that trend has continued.
Adobe found that online prices rose by 2.3% during the 12 months ending in June
and gathered momentum in July. That marks a sharp reversal from the pre-Covid
Between 2015 and 2019, online
prices dropped by an average of 3.9% every year.

Going beyond your job description and taking responsibility for things outside
your scope broadens your "runway" and quite frankly we hear that term all the
time when it comes to defining an executive's future. It's not the job that's
defining you, it's your own perceptions of what you can do that determines how
far you go. Opening your mind and embracing what you don't know will allow you
to change your own perceptions and thus lengthen your runway. And in today's
environment where we've all been stretched, you've got to be focused on the
value you're adding to the company you're working for. If you can focus there
and be able to specifically list the value you're adding, odds are, regardless
of what happens to the company you're working for, you'll do great!
