    A new study suggests that about 10 percent of Twitter's active accounts are posting 'spam content', as disputes over the issue threaten to derail Elon Musk's $44 billion takeover of the social media company. London-based data analytics firm GlobalData said in a report on Wednesday that its mathematical model found that spam accounts are roughly double the 5 percent share claimed by Twitter. Musk has been threatening to walk away from his agreement to buy the company unless Twitter backs up its estimate that false or spam accounts comprise less than 5 percent of its user base.  'The precise proportion of spam accounts is difficult to compute, as it is almost impossible to confirm the identity of the entity behind a tweet handle,' said GlobalData senior data scientist Sidharth Kumar.

    (New York) Leaders of an organization campaigning to form a union at the Amazon warehouse in New York have announced that they have signed an agreement with the company to hold an employee referendum from Wednesday 25 to March 30. . Released at 2:19 p.m. Workers at the JFK8 warehouse around Staten Island will cast their ballots in person, group leader Christian Smalls said on Twitter. The campaign to form a union on the site began last year. After several adventures, the US Agency for Labor Law (NLRB) acknowledged at the end of January that they had collected enough signatures to demand that the ballot be regulated. An Amazon spokesman said Wednesday that the company was “suspicious” that it had collected enough signatures. “But since the NLRB has decided that the election should be held, we want our staff to hear their voices as soon as possible,” Kelly Nandel told AFP. “Our employees always choose whether or not to join a union,” he added. The e-commerce company is facing several attempts to merge. A group...
    CHICAGO (CBS) — There’s new information about the COVID testing company at the center of a federal investigation. Northshore Clinical Labs tested hundreds of thousands of samples leaving many with delayed results and in some cases no results at all. READ MORE: Chicago Weather Alert: Winter Storm Watch On The WayOn Wednesday, CBS 2’s Chris Tye broke the story of Northshore Clinical labs.

In the weeks before Christmas 2020, the city of Berwyn hired Northshore Clinical Labs to run a few drive through testing labs. The city said the company failed to get them results in the agreed upon time. It lead the city to not only leave Northshore and find a new lab service. It changed its vetting process to make sure the Northshore issues never happen again.

    Founded in 1910 as a small millinery business in Paris, Chanel has evolved into one of the recognisable names in fashion.  Named after couturière Coco Chanel, the company is owned by Alain and Gérard Wertheimer, the grandsons of Chanel's early business partner Pierre, and remains a tightly controlled family business.  But now the duo have handed over the day-to-day operations to a rare outsider, London-based businesswoman Leena Nair, who will take over as global CEO after stepping down as Chief Human Resources Officer at Unilever.

    PHILADELPHIA -- A major outage in Amazon's cloud computing network Tuesday severely disrupted services at a wide range of U.S. companies for more than five hours, the latest sign of just how concentrated the business of keeping the internet running has become.The incident at Amazon Web Services mostly affected the eastern U.S., but still impacted everything from airline reservations and auto dealerships to payment apps and video streaming services to Amazon's own massive e-commerce operation. That included The Associated Press, whose publishing system was inoperable for much of the day, greatly limiting its ability to publish its news report..Amazon has still said nothing about what, exactly, went wrong. In fact, the company limited its communications Tuesday to terse technical explanations on an AWS dashboard and a brief statement delivered via spokesperson Richard Rocha that acknowledged the outage had affected Amazon's own warehouse and delivery operation but said the company was "working to resolve the issue as quickly as possible."Roughly five hours after numerous companies and other organizations began reporting issues, the company said in a post on the AWS status...
    A man accused of stuffing razor blades and screws into pizza dough at supermarkets in Maine and New Hampshire was sentenced Thursday to four years and nine months in federal prison. Nicholas Mitchell, 39, was found guilty of tampering with goods after three customers bought tainted products in the Hannaford Supermarket in Saco, Maine, and discovered blades hidden inside, prosecutors said.  It came after Mitchell was fired by his employer 'It'll be Pizza', which provides the pizza dough for several companies.  Product tampering also occurred at Hannaford stores in Sanford, Maine, and Dover, New Hampshire, prompting investigations by police departments in those communities. Although no one was injured, the crime was dangerous and spread fear in the community, the judge said, sentencing him to four years in prison and ordered him to pay nearly $230,000 in restitution to Hannaford Supermarkets. Mitchell tearfully apologised for his actions after being sentenced, and insisted he did it to get back at the pizza dough company that fired him, not to hurt anybody. This booking photo shows Nicholas Mitchell, 39, who was accused of putting razor...

Over the past few quarters, companies across the economic spectrum — from McDonald's, CVS Health, Under Armour and Walgreens to wholesale grocer United Natural Foods — have added the top job to help the boardroom better stay in touch with a rapidly changing landscape of the consumer. Pre-pandemic, customer happiness was often tracked across talking-points lists from various internal teams passed up to the C-suite, but now it's being seen as critical to make one senior person responsible for influencing employees across the organization to become...
    Facebook will now go by the name Meta, the company announced Thursday by pulling down a curtain draped over its iconic 'Like' sign outside its Silicon Valley headquarters Thursday.  Meta refers to the 'metaverse,' which is the company's new venture into shared augmented reality and virtual world environments for working and playing that people can access via the internet.  It comes as the company is ensnared in controversy relating to whistleblower Frances Haugen's leaked documents and bombshell claims that the company 'puts profits over people.' The firm's original, flagship social media site and app - Facebook - will keep its moniker, but Facebook Inc., the parent company that also owns Instagram and WhatsApp, will now go under the new title.  The announcement, which came at the Facebook Connect augmented and virtual reality conference, includes a new logo depicting a blue infinity symbol and refers to the 'metaverse', the company's new focus to expand beyond its social media apps.    The term 'metaverse' can refer to digital spaces, which are made more lifelike by the use of virtual reality or augmented reality.

    A New York Democrat is campaigning to prevent Chick-fil-A from being allowed to open at rest stops in the state, accusing the company's CEO of being homophobic. Harry Bronson, a state assembly member, wrote to Governor Andrew Cuomo urging him not to grant Chick-fil-A permission to operate at the state rest stops. Chick-fil-A has often come under fire from liberals for donations to Christian groups accused of anti-LGBTQ views, such as the Salvation Army and Christian Athletes.  The chief executive, Dan Cathy, whose father, S. Truett Cathy, founded the $8.4 billion company in 1946, has publicly disparaged LGBTQ rights.  Chick-fil-A is hoping to be awarded a contract to open at rest stops across New York state, as part of a $450 million upgrade to the highway facilities. Some Democrats are unhappy at the fast food chain's potential involvement, accusing the company of being homophobic In 2019 the company announced a donation policy shift, to move away from contentious issues and focus instead on initiatives assisting in 'the areas of education, homelessness and hunger.'  The state is...

There, riders strap on headphones to hear the music and instructor during class.Source: SoulCycle PRDavid Ross remembers unclipping his foot from a SoulCycle bike in March 2020. The pandemic was about to shut down indoor exercise studios. He finished the class and realized he didn't know when he would be back again. For Ross, that was a scary thought. For months thereafter, Ross' fitness routine consisted of running up and down 31 flights of stairs in his Manhattan apartment building, five or six times a day. He was too afraid to venture outdoors. Coronavirus cases were spreading rampantly across the city last spring. "At least it felt like I was doing something," the 36-year-old said. He had been a loyal SoulCycle customer for years, often taking classes in either Tribeca or the West Village. At one point, Ross rented his apartment building's gym for solo sweat sessions, where he attempted to mimic an in-studio experience by clipping into a spinning bike, turning...
    In this article HWINYour Hometown Deli in Paulsboro, N.J.Google EarthHedge fund manager David Einhorn warned of dangers for retail investors that he sees in the market, and one of his main examples was a tiny New Jersey deli with a market capitalization of more than $100 million. The Paulsboro, New Jersey-based Your Hometown Deli is the sole location for Hometown International, which has an eye-popping market value despite totaling $35,748 in sales in the last two years combined, according to securities filings. "Someone pointed us to Hometown International (HWIN), which owns a single deli in rural New Jersey ... HWIN reached a market cap of $113 million on February 8. The largest shareholder is also the CEO/CFO/Treasurer and a Director, who also happens to be the wrestling coach of the high school next door to the deli. The pastrami must be amazing," Einhorn said in a letter to clients published Thursday.

    Tech workers at The New York Times have formed a union under the NewsGuild of New York, and they are demanding voluntary recognition from the paper’s management. The new union, called the Tech Times Guild, represents more than 650 workers from the digital side of the company, including software engineers, designers, and data analysts. Those employees are not included in the editorial union of The New York Times, which represents more than 3,000 reporters and media professionals at the newspaper and is also organized under NewsGuild. The editorial union has historically excluded employees on the digital side of the paper, even as the company has expanded into more ambitious data and digital work. As a result, the Tech Times Guild is seeking a separate bargaining unit, which would negotiate separately with the Times management. “As of now, we face a number of challenges,” the Tech Times Guild said in a statement on Twitter , “including sudden or unexplained termination, opaque promotion processes, unpaid overtime, and underinvestment in diverse representation. Without a union, we lack the data or bargaining rights...

    Almost half of all New York Times employees say they don't believe they can express their views freely at the newspaper, according to a company survey.    A poll conducted among staff in December revealed negative responses to questions regarding company culture, the New York Post reported.  According to the report, only 51 per cent of NYT employees agreed with a statement claiming there is 'free exchange of views in this company; people are not afraid to say what they really think.'  A review of the findings found that those results were 10 per cent lower than the 'benchmark', or the average response to that question at other companies, according to the Post. 'Although the majority of us feel well-informed, many indicated that differing viewpoints aren't sought or valued in our work,' the report said.   About 49% of NYT employees did not agree with a survey statement claiming there is a 'free exchange of views in this company', according to The New York Post  'Relatedly, we saw some negative responses on whether there's a free exchange of views in the...
    New York : By: Estrella Flores Carretero January 14, 2021 Work does not only affect one part of life, but also permeates social and personal aspects. It is not uncommon for two people to share work hours, efforts, goals; wish to expand their links. The more you know someone, the more likely you are to love them. What to do then? Often times, companies view these types of relationships with distrust, but when there is adequate control of emotions, both in the protagonists and in the spectators, there is no reason to fear that they will negatively impact labor productivity or the organizational climate. Corporations must establish an open culture, so that workers know that there is full confidence in their professionalism, that their personal decisions will be respected and that there will be no prejudice in the face of any free, adult and consensual relationship. Communicate it to the human resources department. It is estimated that a third of the couples that appear at work live their relationship clandestinely. Some corporations have guidelines or codes of...
    The wrestling community has been wondering what Sting’s role will be in AEW following the news that he’s signed a multi-year deal with the company. The speculation has been that he’ll serve in a managerial role, but “The Icon” could still become an active in-ring competitor. As documented by Inside the Ropes, Sting is listed as a wrestler on the company’s website’s roster page. His graphic shows a win-loss record, which tends to only apply to competitors. The personalities who feature on television regularly but don’t compete aren’t given these types of illustrations on the promotion’s site. The news might come as a shock to some fans considering that Sting was forced to retire through injury in 2015. He was injured in a match against Seth Rollins, and he announced that it’d be his last one shortly afterward. However, it is believed that he’s keen on competing in cinematic matches. As The Inquisitr reported earlier, one of the reasons why he reportedly rejected an offer to extend his WWE stay was because Vince McMahon refused to book his dream showdown...
    5 BRANCHES BREWING/ FACEBOOK This year has been a doozy. The COVID-19 pandemic has totally rocked the food and drink industry, but against all odds, a local, newish brewery has news worth celebrating. With only a year on the scene under its belt, and after jumping into its first competition, 5 Branches Brewing in Tarpon Springs won a silver medal during the 34th annual Great American Beer Festival for its “Doggin Wrench” stout in the Imperial Stout Category. The brewery also took home awards for “Very Small Brewing Company of the Year” and the “Very Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year.” To qualify for the Very Small Brewing Company of the Year category, a brewery must produce less than 1,000 barrels in 2019. To give you an idea, the Small Brewing Company of the year produced anywhere from 1,000-14,999 barrels and the Mid-Size cranks out 15,000–6,000,000 barrels. That is something to raise a glass to in these weird times.  “This has arguably been one of the most challenging years breweries have ever faced, so we hope these...

The 4,073-square-foot, three-bedroom condo on the Upper East Side, was last listed for about $12 million – after Lawrence bought it for $15.6 million through an LLC, according to the New York Post. It sits atop a 30-story luxury building that boasts a “paparazzi-proof garage,” the outlet reported. The “Hunger Games” star had reportedly been trying to sell the penthouse for at least a year.

    Tesla has only been paying half of the $700,000-a-month rent on one of its showrooms in New York, a new report claims just one day after the electric carmaker boasted a 281 percent profit increase in the second quarter.   Insiders told Fox Business that eccentric Tesla founder and CEO Elon Musk has been working to defer rent payments at many of his 80 showrooms across the US during the coronavirus pandemic.  At least one of the showrooms in New York declined to defer the rent, the sources said, so instead the company has only paid half of the full $2,800,000 its owed over the past four months.   Musk - who became the fifth-richest person in the world this week as his net worth ballooned to $74billion, according to the Forbes - allegedly promised to pay off the debt in August, conveniently after Tesla posted second-quarter earnings that made it eligible to enter the S&P 500.  Tesla CEO Elon Musk (pictured) has reportedly been trying to defer rent payment at many of his 80 showrooms across the US during the...
    At 88 years old and in the midst of a pandemic, Televisa left without exclusivity to Silvia Pinal, diva of Mexican cinema. This was confirmed by her son, Luis Enrique Guzmán. “I see that she is a little shocked, a little worried, because the situation is very bad”, Alejandra Guzmán’s brother told TV Azteca’s “Ventaneando”. La Pinal, the forerunner of one of the most important dynasties of Mexican entertainment, worked at Televisa from its beginnings when it was called the Mexican Telesystem. Emilio Azcárraga Milmo had assured that emblematic figures like her or “El Loco” Valdés would have lifetime exclusivity, but the contemporary administration decided otherwise. Televisa’s exclusivity means a monthly income for the artists who enjoy it. “It was one of the pillars that formed that company, it left blood, sweat and tears”, Luis Enrique expressed astonished by the decision of the company of Emilio Azcárraga Jr. “It seems strange to me that at this stage of the game they leave it without exclusivity”he added. Silvia Pinal made history with programs like “Woman Cases of Real Life” or...

    Starbucks will now allow employees to wear Black Lives Matter apparel during their shifts, a strong departure from the company’s prior stance, as articulated in an internal memo last week that subjected the company to backlash after it was leaked to Buzzfeed News. “Black lives matter and Starbucks is committed to doing our part in ending systemic racism,” said Starbucks in a Friday statement. “As a company, Starbucks leaders continue to listen to partners (employees) about how they want to take a stand for justice, while proudly wearing the green apron and standing united together.” In a public letter also published on Friday, three Starbucks executives notified employees that they could wear their own Black Lives Matter pins or t-shirts until the company’s own affiliate t-shirts were printed. “We are so proud of your passionate support of our common humanity. We trust you to do what’s right while never forgetting Starbucks is a welcoming third place where all are treated with dignity and respect,” said the executives. As Buzzfeed News previously reported, Starbucks employees have previously had the option to...
