    SAN JOSE – The San Jose Sharks have made a handful of upgrades to SAP Center in recent years, although some improvements have been more noticeable to the public than others. Spectators couldn’t miss the latest addition to the arena if they tried. A humongous new center-hung video scoreboard that crews spent roughly two months constructing made its hockey game debut Sunday afternoon as the Sharks hosted the Los Angeles Kings in the first preseason game for both teams. The new video board is approximately nine feet taller and 15 feet wider than the previous board as all four sides are now identical in size. Per the Sharks, the board weighs the same as the previous one but has the unique ability to “demonstrate continuous content throughout.” Infrastructure had to be added to the ceiling of the building to support the width of the board.

    A woman who grew up in Westchester County and spent decades working in marketing has died at the age of 48. Carolyn Anne Beal, of Barrington, Rhode Island, died peacefully on Wednesday, Aug. 31, from cancer and its complications, according to her obituary.

    You can raise a glass and drink up memories of one of San Jose’s long-lost landmarks thanks to a new beer released by Narrative Fermentations named after Frontier Village. The western-themed amusement park opened in South San Jose’s Edenvale district in 1961 and delighted kids with stagecoaches, a train and shootouts between marshals and bank robbers, who always lost the gunfight but managed to come back for the next show. There was a Ferris wheel, a spooky mine ride, an antique auto ride and a multi-armed ride called the Tarantula that still makes my stomach flip just thinking about it. A map sign of Frontier Village that used to be posted at the Marshal’s Office of the amusement park was among the memorabilia brought to Narrative Fermentations by collector Tim Stephens for the release of a new Frontier Village beer on July 8, 2022. (Sal Pizarro/Bay Area News Group)  Frontier Village closed in 1980, with much of its stuff auctioned off or sold to other parks and its land developed into housing and what is now Edenvale Garden Park next...
    Davos, Switzerland (CNN Business)Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine's minister of digital transformation, hadn't left the country since Russia invaded three months ago. But he traveled hundreds of miles from Kyiv to Davos, Switzerland, to send a message to some of the world's biggest technology companies: We need you to do more.Fedorov said in an interview with CNN Business that he met directly with Nick Clegg, head of global affairs at Meta, Facebook's (FB) parent company, at the World Economic Forum. He also had meetings with representatives from Microsoft (MSFT) and Google (GOOGL)."Each of us can do even better," he said.Almost 500 tech companies have left Russia since President Vladimir Putin sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, by Fedorov's count. But he called out tech firms Cloudflare and SAP for continuing to operate in Russia, which he said undermines the effectiveness of the "digital blockade.""When a company is working in the Russian market, it pumps funds into the Russian budget from which money gets to the Russian army. This enables killing Ukrainians," Fedorov said.Read MoreGermany's SAP, which makes business software, said in...
    SANTA CLARA, Calif. (KGO) -- Coldplay has been sending fans a message on their app ever since Music of the Sphere tour tickets went on sale seven months ago - reduce your carbon footprint and earn a 10% discount to the May 15 show that also features the Bay Area's H.E.R. One way is to take public transit."It helps you to become part of the environmental side of the show by looking at the cleanest and greenest way you can get to the concert and home again and offset those emissions," said Coldplay's lead vocalist Chris Martin.The performance at Levi's Stadium could draw as many as 68,000.

    SAN JOSE – Thomas Bordeleau was skating toward the neutral zone when linemate Jayden Halbgewachs took control of the puck. Bordeleau then received a pass from Halbgewachs and took a few strides before he fired a shot that handcuffed Bakersfield goalie Stuart Skinner. Lane Pederson pounced on the juicy rebound and tapped it into the Condors’ net for a one-goal Barracuda lead 60 seconds into the first period. That’s how Bordeleau signaled his arrival to San Jose on Wednesday, assisting on a goal on his first shift in his debut with the Sharks’ AHL affiliate. “Definitely a little confidence booster,” Bordeleau said of the initial point. Bordeleau, who was signed to amateur tryout on Tuesday, would add two more assists in the second period on goals by Jasper Weatherby and Patrick Holway as the Barracuda closed out its final game at SAP Center with a 6-3 loss to the Condors. “I thought he was pretty good,” Barracuda coach Roy Sommer said of Bordeleau, one of the Sharks’ second-round picks in 2020. “I think he thinks the American League is going...
    Despite the Bay Area Panthers’ 53-27 loss to the Vegas Knight Hawks, on Monday night, several thousand boisterous fans came out to watch the Panthers’ second home game of the season, many already sporting Panthers jerseys. The Panthers are the first indoor football team playing at SAP Center since the San Jose SaberCats played there as part of the Arena Football League in 2015, when they won the AFL Championship game. Steven Avelar, from Gilroy, attended his first Panthers game on Monday with his 3-year-old son Mason. He remembered fondly coming to the SAP Center to watch the SaberCats play when he was younger. Shari Kinney, from Hayward, arrived early enough to high-five players during warmups. Kinney and her husband Mark have already purchased season tickets; she also had season tickets with the SaberCats. The Sabercats played at SAP Center from 1995 to 2008 and then from 2011 to 2015. during that time they won four AFL Championships with 16 playoff appearances. Originally the Oakland Panthers, the Panthers were scheduled to play at the Oakland Coliseum in 2020 but after...
    SAN JOSE – Responding to updated health guidelines from the state, Sharks Sports & Entertainment announced Monday that starting this weekend, fans attending hockey games at SAP Center will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test for entry. California’s Department of Public Health on March 17 stated that instead of requiring proof of full vaccination or evidence of recent negative COVID-19 test for entry into indoor mega-events, it would move to a “strong recommendation” to the public to use those measures for limiting the spread of the virus. The state’s new guidelines go into effect Friday. The Sharks’ next home game is Saturday against the Dallas Stars. In its news release, SSE noted that “certain event promoters may choose to implement restrictions at SAP Center” and that it would be “in communication with ticketholders in advance, as applicable.” Previously, all guests 2 or older attending events at SAP Center had to either be fully vaccinated or show proof of a negative COVID test. Mega-events are defined as being indoor crowds greater than 1,000...

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) – Football fans filled SAP Center for the first time in years Monday night to welcome a new home team to the arena. After two years of pandemic-related delays, fans watched the Bay Area Panthers kick off their inaugural season. The team took on the San Diego Strike Force in their new home and won 38 to 33.

    People have bemoaned San Jose’s supposed lack of identity and civic pride for so long that it’s become a tired cliche. I’ve certainly been guilty of telling people that nobody hates San Jose like San Joseans. But the opposite is true, too: Nobody loves this city like the people who live here. And six artists — Luis Guardado, Rayos Magos, Sam Rodriguez, Alyssa Wigant, Eddie Ramirez and Jessica Eastburn — recently were given the chance to express what San Jose means to them with the Sharks X Zoom Suites Mural Project. The colorful artwork they created, each measuring 28 feet by 8 feet, has been installed outside the Zoom Suites on the upper level of SAP Center, where they’re still visible from the concourse.

    SAN JOSE (KPIX 5) – Indoor mask mandates have been lifted in Santa Clara County, which meant those attending the Justin Bieber concert at SAP Center on Wednesday night were not required to mask up. Anthony Flores, who brought his daughter to the concert, told KPIX 5, “I don’t really know what to make of it, it’s rather sudden.” READ MORE: UPDATE: Man Dies In East San Jose Hit-And-Run; 10th Pedestrian Killed On City's Streets This YearFlores went on to say they’re not ready to take their masks off quite yet. “There’s still COVID out there, my daughter is in school.

While Santa Clara County is the last in the Bay Area to drop its indoor mask mandate, other cities including Baltimore, Boston and Philadelphia will be dropping their masking order this week. Meanwhile, Los Angeles County is expected do so on Friday. The loosening of mask rules comes as President...
    As COVID-related health orders are being eased across the Bay Area, San Jose is joining the trend by ending one booster shot mandate and potentially loosening up another. San Jose no longer will require people attending events at city-owned facilities like the SAP Center and Center for Performing Arts to show proof of having received a booster shot before entering. Similarly, city employees may soon see some bending in a policy that demanded them to get a booster shot or face up to a week of unpaid leave. About 750 employees have resisted that rule so far, according to the city. “This is not a belief that somehow or another boosters are not what we need to be doing, but rather a recognition that as time moves on and we have seen a substantial decline in cases, that we should take a posture that enables us to safely operate with the prior protections in place,” Mayor Sam Liccardo said during Tuesday’s council discussion about the public venue policy. Less than a month after enacting a new booster mandate for public...
    SAN JOSE, Calif. (KGO) -- San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo wants to drop the city's COVID-19 booster requirement to get into city-owned facilities.Doing so would impact venues like the SAP Center- home of the Sharks. Team President Jonathan Becher told reporters on Wednesday, mandates and the on-going pandemic are the reason for low-attendance at the SAP Center."The drive to get actual people in becomes much more difficult when you have to vax, boost, test, mask, etc.," he said.At city-owned facilities across San Jose, visitors have gotten used to following signs for vaccine verification.

    SAN JOSE – Bob Boughner – a stout 205-pound defenseman during his NHL career – had a special way of clearing traffic in front of his own net. “In the old days when I played it would be right here,” said the Sharks’ coach, using his hands to mimic a hard cross-checking motion to an opposing players’ lower back. NHL officials tend to frown upon such tactics these days. Besides, it might not work for some smaller defenseman like Ryan Merkley, who is about 25 pounds lighter than when Boughner played a generation ago. So the Sharks and Merkley are figuring out what will work, as the 2018 first-round draft choice tries to remain in the lineup with Erik Karlsson unavailable for a few more weeks, at least. Part of it for Merkley is learning from those around him like Karlsson and opposing defenseman of a similar size like Vancouver’s Quinn Hughes, who he’ll play against Thursday at SAP Center. “Karl’s stick and skating are incredible,” Merkley said. “He doesn’t have to make physical contact...
    SAN JOSE — The sparse crowd that showed up to watch a Valentine’s Day game between the Sharks and Oilers had no love to spare for Evander Kane. A chorus of boos sang anytime the former Shark got the puck. Playing his seventh game with Edmonton since he signed as a free agent there on Jan. 27, Kane’s first time back at SAP Center since the Sharks terminated his contract was met with hostility. Kane didn’t score a goal or record an assist in the Oilers’ 3-0 shutout of the Sharks on Monday night, but all eyes were on him. Before Monday’s game, Kane said his return “probably matters more to you guys (the media) than it matters to me,” but his new and former teammates could feel the tension. They tried to pay no mind. “Obviously, (the fans) kind of got on (Kane) every time he touched the puck,” said Sharks goaltender James Reimer. “But no, I mean, there’s always these little storylines and stuff like that. But for us, this is an important game. It’s...
    Texans say trees are literally exploding due to the freezing temperatures throughout the state, courtesy of winter storm Landon, with some residents describing the phenomena as 'sounding like gunshots going off.' Residents across the Lone Star State claim they have been hearing loud snapping and popping noises from outside their homes, as cold temperatures freeze the water in the tree's sap causing excess weight along its limbs. 'We listened to them all night,' Texas resident Lauren Reber told KXAS-TV.  'Sounds like gunshots going off.' Photos of the storm's immediate aftermath shows felled trees and tree limbs all over the Dallas-Fort Worth area, with some pictured falling onto cars and others collapsing onto homes.

    For a few years now, Lex Gopnik-Lewinski has had his eye on that Canadian stronghold in San Jose. You know, the neighborhood where hockey players and their followers converge. Starting tonight, his Augie’s Montreal Deli will join the SAP Center vendor lineup and introduce San Jose Sharks fans to the pride of Montreal. The first sandwiches will be sold before the puck drops against the Calgary Flames at 7:30 p.m. A Canadian native who moved to the Bay Area in 1988, Gopnik-Lewinski used to bring his sealed, smoky haul back here after visits home — until one day when a Canadian customs officer confiscated his Montreal meat. That was when he decided he needed to learn from his friends up north and make his own. The dish dates back a century to the Hungarian Jews who immigrated to the province of Quebec. The working-class dish has become a staple at legendary restaurants like Schwartz’s, Snowdon, Lester’s, Reuben’s and Smoke Meat Pete (where Gopnik-Lewinski got his training).

    Chomp takes on new meaning this season as the San Jose Sharks, SAP Center and their culinary partner, Aramark, unveil a new lineup of food choices for hockey fans. There’s lots to sample. Good thing it’s a sport with two intermissions. Joining all the popular, locally owned restaurants are several new Aramark concepts, including some featuring customization. “People like to build their own everything,” said Brian Tuscano, the Aramark general manager for SAP Center.

    In this article .BBKAThe logo of German software group SAP is pictured at its headquarters in Walldorf, Germany, May 12, 2016.Ralph Orlowski | ReutersGerman software giant SAP on Thursday posted a jump in revenue at its fast-growing cloud unit, which helped boost the company's earnings performance in the third quarter. SAP's third-quarter cloud revenue totalled roughly 2.4 billion euros ($2.8 billion), up 20% from the same period a year ago, while its backlog of cloud contracts amounted to almost 1.3 billion euros, up 58%. Overall adjusted revenue came in at 6.8 billion euros, up 5% year-over-year, bolstered by growth in cloud, while adjusted earnings per share climbed 2% to 1.74 euros thanks to profitable start-up bets at spinoff firm Sapphire Ventures. Last year, SAP outlined plans for a broad shift from on-premise IT infrastructure to remote cloud computing facilities.

    Honey turns up everywhere, and not just on toast. It often appears as the sweetener in packaged snack foods – which is absolutely another great case for reading labels when you’re being conscious of what you’re eating. There is more to that drop of golden sweetness than meets the eye. The commercial honey industry is akin to a factory farming operation for bees. Bees are kept and transported in hives unlike the nests they would build in nature – what PETA likens to ‘incarceration in filing cabinets’ – and populations are genetically modified over generations to produce to a beekeeper’s needs. Queens are killed before their time (if you remember from elementary school biology, Queens can live up to seven years and lay over a million eggs in a lifetime. Terminating them early causes a disruption to the bees’ natural order. Without bees, our food security could be at a tremendous risk). Adding one more stressful or damaging factor to bees’ functioning seems unwise, especially if we can help it. So if you’re looking to replace honey in your diet,...
    Anti-maskers just won’t learn. Since the start of the pandemic, videos of anti-maskers resorting to violence when asked to wear a mask, licking items at grocery stores, and coughing on customers have circulated through social media. While one would hope these incidents were becoming less common, given how far along in the pandemic we have come, they are not. In a recent incident that went viral on social media, a maskless woman was caught coughing on shoppers in a Nebraska grocery store. An indoor mask mandate was in place at the time. The incident, which occurred on Friday, prompted social media users who saw the video to call on authorities to cite the woman for violating the county-wide mask mandate. As of this report, the video has more than four million views on Twitter. In it, a woman identified as 54-year-old Janene Hoskovec can be seen following a mother-daughter duo throughout a Super Saver in Lincoln in order to deliberately cough on them.

    A woman who refused to wear a mask inside a Nebraska supermarket and apparently "deliberately" coughed on other customers "no longer works for" her now-former employer, software giant SAP. The viral video, which has received over 4 million views in just two days, shows the woman, almost giddy, as she claims to have "allergies" and "maybe" a medical condition, while coughing in the direction of other shoppers who recorded her actions. KRON reported the Nebraska town where the supermarket is located has an ordnance requiring masks, regardless of vaccination status. The report also stated she "was caught on camera appearing to deliberately cough inside a supermarket without a face mask on." An internet sleuth identified the woman, and on Wednesday SAP announced it was "investigating."

    A video of a woman in a Nebraska supermarket without a mask and "appearing to deliberately cough" on other shoppers has gained national attention, and now her employer says they are investigating. The video went viral, with one copy garnering nearly 3 million views on Twitter in just 24 hours. An internet sleuth apparently identified the woman, and her employer, a $27 billion multinational software company, SAP, is responding and appearing to validate that she does work for them. The Germany-based corporation says they are "taking the matter of an SAP employee incident very seriously." The health and safety of our employees and the communities in which we live and work are of utmost concern to us.

    SAN JOSE (KPIX) — Exactly one month from Thursday, you must show proof you’re fully vaccinated to enter the Shark Tank. SAP Center officials announced the new requirement not only for San Jose Sharks games but any event that is held at the venue, including concerts. The requirement meets the emergency ordinance just passed by the San Jose city council Tuesday to make it mandatory to show proof of vaccination at all city-owned venues for gatherings of 50 or more people. Although the effective date for the SAP Center is Sept. 20, the first impacted event will be the Gold Over America Tour starring Simone Biles on Sept. 26. Ricky Cady, widely known as Capt. Half Beard for his teal-and-orange-dyed beard, said he plans to attend the first season opener game in October. “It’ll be fun to have a fuller Tank again,” Cady said. “(I’m) a little nervous with Delta and everything.” The long-time season ticket holder said he’s OK with the new entrance requirement. “I am vaccinated,” he said. “I actually feel safer and more confident that they’re putting...

    It may look like a harmless flowering plant, but hemlock in the US that came from Europe can be deadly if consumed – and it has spread to 43 states. The toxic hemlock produces white flowers at the top, which resembles Queen Anne’s Lace, and was first introduced in the 1800s as a garden plant. It contains poisonous seeds and sap that can cause welts and blisters on skin when touched, but also results in respiratory failure if eaten. Each part of the plant contains toxic alkaloids that slowly poison the nerve-muscle junctions and cause the failure of the muscles. Infestations are usually found along roadsides, ditches and meadows, but wildlife officials observed the plants spreading into more populated areas. Dan Shaver, with Indiana's Natural Resources Conservation Service, told USA Today: ‘That movement is a bit scary to me because this plant is very toxic and it’s more of an opportunity for kids to play with it and pets to eat it. ‘It is not a plant you want around your home or in your local park.’ It contains poisonous...
    The new generation of boxing, despite the slowdown of the pandemic, continues to flourish. Two good examples collide this Saturday at the Mundet Sports Center in Barcelona. Cristóbal Lorente (11-0-1, 1 KO) and Juan Jesús ‘Xispi’ Antúnez (7-0, 3 KO) face off for the national featherweight title, which is vacant, in a duel that is expected to be highly contested and that both coincide: “It will be a fighter”, they point out in the Boxeo a la Carrera podcast. They are young (Lorente 25 years old and Antúnez 26) and they are very hungry for glory. It shows. The hours are counting for high gloves and for the bell to ring. Lorente he will act as a local, which “he likes.” “I have been waiting since 2019 to be able to play the Nacional. It has been falling, fighting against Kevin Baldospino (former co-candidate) I think I was doing better, but with all these circumstances I will be able to do it in front of my people,” he says. The Catalan has left the ‘Ko Verdun’ factory and considers Sandor...

    VATICAN CITY (AP) — Pope Francis celebrated the Roman Catholic Church’s first World Day for Grandparents and the Elderly on Sunday. Francis solicited a round of applause from the faithful in St. Peter’s Square and urged people everywhere to reach out to older generations. Francis was supposed to have led a celebration Mass for grandparents in St. Peter’s Cathedral earlier in the day, but left the duty to Archbishop Rino Fisichella, three weeks after the pontiff emerged from the hospital after major intestinal surgery. “Grandparents and grandchildren, the elderly and youth together showed one of the beautiful sides of the Church, and showed the alliance between the generations,’’ the pontiff said in off-the-cuff remarks from a window overlooking St. Peter’s Square. “To celebrate this day, I invite celebration in every community with visits to grandparents and elderly, those who are most alone, to bring them my message, inspired by Jesus: ‘I am with you every day.’ ” He said just as the elderly need young people, young people need the elderly, “especially in this throw-away culture.” “The grandparents have...

    On Monday, the chairman SAPThe task force, Ralph Z, is retiring from his post. Now he is about to be fired from the software company. A spokesman DocsThe Waldorf-based group commented on relevant information from working group circles: “We confirm that SAP SE’s working group has approved the extraordinary dismissal of the former task force chairman.” The next steps will now begin. Details are not provided, and crew members enjoy special protection against dismissal. A SAP spokesman said the focus was on “extreme care, corporate governance and the protection of the privacy of those involved.” The company began internal investigations against both Z. and another task force. The now-facing announcement of the dismissal is said to have been “difficult to clarify in many ways, suppressing circumstantial facts” during an investigation by a works and oversight committee colleague who allegedly tried to “prevent the truth from being determined”.

    Sharks Sports & Entertainment is set to become the first parent company of an NHL team to begin to accept cryptocurrency for large and recurring payments. Starting June 15, the Sharks will accept cryptocurrency for season ticket purchases, luxury box leases, and sponsorship deals, an SSE spokesman confirmed. The Sports Business Journal first reported details of the initiative. Team president Jonathan Becher said using cryptocurrency for smaller purchases inside SAP Center such as single game tickets, food and beverage, and merchandise will be reviewed in the future. In March, the Oakland A’s announced they were selling six-person private suites at the Coliseum for the 2021 season for one Bitcoin, which, at the time, was worth around $60,000. As of Monday, one Bitcoin was worth just over $35,000. Other professional sports teams to accept Bitcoin include the Dallas Mavericks and Sacramento Kings of the NBA and Southampton F.C. of the Premier League in England. The Sharks will be working with Atlanta-based payment processor BitPay, which also has an office in San Francisco. The Sharks are already...
    Brood X periodical cicadas are reportedly "peeing" on communities around the eastern United States. The trillions of red-eyed insects are emerging in parks, backyards and wooded areas across approximately 15 states, sending residents abuzz.  CICADAS TAKE OVER THE CAPITOL GROUNDS, 'CICADA, CICADA. WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN?' A new report from The Washington Post highlighted the issue of frequent cicada "urination," particularly on warmer days when it falls from cicadas on tree branches "like a gentle rain shower" of "watery tree sap."  An adult cicada in Washington, Thursday, May 6, 2021. Trillions of cicadas are about to emerge from 15 states in the U.S. East. The cicadas of Brood X, trillions of red-eyed bugs singing loud sci-fi-sounding songs, can seem downright creepy. Especially since they come out from underground only every 17 years.  (AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster) Fortunately, the excretion is not a danger, much like the cicadas themselves. Mount St. Joseph University's Gene Kritsky told Cincinnati's WLWT on Wednesday that the cicadas are not exactly peeing but need to stay hydrated and trying to warn curious human beings away. A...
    In a sudden about-face, the San Jose Sharks — the most vocal opponent of Google’s plans to build an 80-acre urban village and tech campus on the western edge of downtown — have backed down. Just hours before the San Jose City Council is expected to grant Google final approval for its monumental development plan, San Jose Director of Economic Development Nanci Klein announced in a memo that the city, Google and the San Jose Sharks have reached a settlement agreement. “The settlement agreement among the city, Google, and SSE (Sharks Sports & Entertainment) resolves the vast majority of concerns raised by the parties,” she wrote. Referred to as Downtown West, Google plans to build up to 7.3 million square feet of office space, 4,000 housing units, 300 hotel rooms, 500,000 square feet of retail space and 15 acres of open space and parks just west of downtown San Jose surrounding the Diridon train station and SAP Center. On top of Google’s plans, the Diridon Station Area Plan, which is guiding development for the broader 250...
    So Rudy “Up From His Head Come a Bubblin’ Crude” Giuliani, who represented Donald Trump in his effort to overturn the 2020 election, is now learning where Trump’s loyalties really lie—i.e., with the Adderall fairies whispering in his ear 24/7 about the impudent hobgoblins trying steal his pouch of magic beans. Donald Trump doesn’t pay his bills. When will these knuckleheads ever learn? Did Rudy think his preternatural ability to gross out his own intestinal flukes would somehow make Trump more likely to pay him? It hardly matters that you’d get better legal advice from an AOL furry chatroom. The man did the, erm, “work.” He deserves his payday. But don’t tell Trump that. He’s stiffing Rudy. Not because Rudy did a terrible job—which he clearly did. But because this is how Trump treats everyone he’s indebted to. From The New York Times: As a federal investigation into Rudolph W. Giuliani escalates, his advisers have been pressing aides to former President Donald J. Trump to reach into a $250 million war chest to pay Mr. Giuliani for his efforts to overturn the results of the 2020...
    U.S. prosecutors said Thursday that German software giant SAP will pay more than $8 million in penalties in acknowledging that it illegally exported its products to Iran. The U.S. said the company could have faced stiffer penalties and prosecution had it not voluntarily disclosed the activities that violated American sanctions against Iran. The company agreed to the penalties and changes to its business practices as part of an agreement with the U.S. departments of Justice, Commerce and Treasury. SAP said it welcomed the resolution. “We accept full responsibility for past conduct, and we have enhanced our internal controls to ensure compliance with applicable laws,” the company said. SAP was not properly using its geolocation filters to identify and block thousands of Iranian downloads of software and software updates over many years, said Nathaniel Mendell, the acting U.S. attorney for Massachusetts, where the resolution was reached after a three-year investigation following SAP’s disclosure. That allowed a number of Iranian-controlled front companies, some of them presumably connected to the government, to be able to use the software, including well-known SAP products that...
    By Sarah N. Lynch WASHINGTON (Reuters) – German software maker SAP SE will pay $8 million in penalties as part of a settlement with the United States to resolve allegations that it violated federal law by exporting some of its software products to Iran, the Justice Department said on Thursday. As part of the pact with the U.S. Justice, Treasury and Commerce departments, federal prosecutors also agreed not to pursue criminal charges against the company. The case against SAP marks the first time a company has taken advantage of a Justice Department policy that gives companies a path to avoid prosecution for unlawfully exporting goods to sanctioned countries, businesses or individuals by self-reporting them to the U.S. government. In order to win credit for cooperation, the company must report the alleged misconduct “prior to an imminent threat of disclosure or government investigation” and disclose “all relevant facts,” including the identities of any individuals responsible for the crimes. The Justice Department said SAP cooperated and has already taken steps to remediate the problems. According to prosecutors, the company engaged in thousands...
