    Chicago Bears defensive coordinator Alan Williams hates the phrase “business as usual.” In the wake of the Bears trading respected veteran defensive end Robert Quinn to the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, Williams welcomed emotion from his players. The trade for a 2023 fourth-round draft pick might have been the smart move for general manager Ryan Poles, but it still affected Quinn’s teammates. Late Monday, the Bears were celebrating an upset victory over the New England Patriots and dreaming of what might happen if they keep playing that brand of football. But 48 hours later they were saying goodbye to a team captain who in his own quiet way made an impact on and off the field — a stark reminder that executives are building this team for the future and not this season. The aftermath was not, Williams said, business as usual. “It happens in the NFL and really in any job where people come and people go, there’s a change of guard so to speak,” Williams said Thursday. “You let your emotions flow, you wish them well, and it’s...
    The former head of the Anaheim Chamber of Commerce has been charged with lying to a mortgage lender in a growing political scandal in Orange County’s most populous city, federal authorities announced Tuesday. In a criminal complaint, the FBI accused the chamber’s former president and chief executive Todd Ament of plotting with an unnamed political consultant to launder chamber money through the consultant’s public relations firm into Ament’s personal bank account. The money, a loan to Ament from the political consultant, was used to influence a financial institution’s decision to lend Ament money to buy a $1.5-million five-bedroom residence in Big Bear City, the complaint says. The PR firm gave Ament $205,000, making it appear he had enough cash on hand to secure the loan, according to the FBI. Ament is also accused in the complaint of making a $200,000 payment directly to the seller of the home in order to reduce his property taxes and the cost of the commission for the seller’s real estate agent. Angels State attorney general asks for hold on Angel Stadium land sale...
    Signage is displayed outside of Johnson & Johnson headquarters in New Brunswick, New Jersey, Aug. 1, 2020.Mark Kauzlarich | Bloomberg | Getty Images Johnson & Johnson on Wednesday announced that the current head and the chief financial officer of its consumer health portfolio will lead the business when it spins off into a separate publicly traded company in 2023. Thibaut Mongon, the current leader of the consumer health business, will become CEO of the standalone company, and Paul Ruh will remain in his current role of chief financial officer. Mongon has served as J&J's consumer health leader since 2019, and Ruh has served as CFO since 2017. Executive Chair Alex Gorsky said J&J conducted an external executive search, but decided that Mongon and Ruh were best equipped to lead the standalone company. J&J announced in November that it would sheer off the consumer health business from its faster-growing medical devices and pharmaceutical portfolios. The consumer health business makes common household products and over-the-counter medicines such as Tylenol, Band-Aid, Listerine, Neutrogena and Aveena skin care, and Johnson's baby products.

    A leader is a representative of a group, crowd, or association that is entrusted with making the big decisions to manage the number. Some leaders are elected while others are just people who decided to start on something, and ended up having a following under them. How a leader governs or rules the rest of the people is what determines the success or failure of a particular crowd. Not all people called leaders are good and not all are bad. Few are actually born to just be true leaders. In order for you to identify a great and true team leader, Sean McCarthy highlights that they possess these four qualities. A good team leader is one that is open minded. In a business set up, you will need to work with everyone from the lowest position to the highest. This will help you as a team leader to help everyone get on board to working as a team. Unity in business is important because you all get to work to meet the demands, needs, and goals of the business. Apart...
    Small business growth lags in the Land of Lincoln according to a recent report by Paychex, which puts Illinois last in hourly and weekly wage growth among small businesses. Paychex’s Small Business Watch showed over the last 12 months Illinois’ hourly wage grew 1.7% and weekly wage grew 0.85%. That’s compared to neighbor and national leader Missouri, which grew its hourly wage 4.09%. Illinois Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Todd Maisch said a preliminary impression of the data suggests Illinois’ reaction to the pandemic may be to blame. “Illinois could have opened up its economy sooner and consequently been closer to the national average in terms of growth,” he told the Illinois Radio Network Maisch cautions however against drawing too many conclusions from the last six months of data. “This is the kind of thing where we’re going to need to look back a year from now, even 18 months from now and get a better feel for what states did and what was the impact on their economies,” he said. Job growth in Illinois is also low compared...

    DENVER (CBS4)– You may have stopped to glance at it during a drive through Denver’s Congress Park neighborhood. The “Stahl House” at 1272 Columbine St. was built in 1889 and is Denver’s newest landmark. The Denver City Council voted on Monday night to designate the 132-year-old property as a new landmark. The Stahl House is built in the “Queen Anne style with Richardsonian Romanesque flourishes and details.” According to the Denver City Council, “John Seward Stahl, a well-known Denverite and an influential business leader with a robust commitment to civic life, moved to Colorado in 1879, and in 1884, moved to Denver to establish a new business selling typewriters, eventually becoming the leader in the field. The family was so well known by the late 1880s that when Stahl purchased the lot for the family’s future home at 1272 Columbine St., it made the newspapers. The Stahl House was among the first built in what is now Congress Park and remained in the Stahl family until 1943.” The Stahl House was designed by renowned architect William Lang, considered...
    Facebook, Google and Microsoft announced Monday they won't be giving out any political donations on the heels of the capitol siege, while a growing number of businesses said they will cut off campaign contributions to Republicans who voted to challenge the Electoral College count.    HALLPAC, Hallmark's political action committee, told Popular Information's Judd Legum that it had requested a $3,000 donation back from Sen. Josh Hawley, a Missouri Republican, and one of the ringleaders of the so-called 'treason caucus.'  Hallmark is based in Kansas City, Missouri.   HALLPAC also asked Sen. Roger Marshall, the newly minted GOP senator from Kansas, for a $5,000 donation to be returned.  Hawley was the first senator who said he'd support a House GOP plan to challenge some of the Electoral College votes from swing states - an effort President Donald Trump supported, as it extended the farce he was feeding to his supporters that the election result could be overturned.   That narrative - that the election was 'stolen' - motivated the MAGA mob to take over Capitol Hill Wednesday, a violent incident that killed five, including...
    Ime Archibong is Facebook's lone Black vice president running a product division and one of very few across the tech industry.Courtesy of Facebook Ime Archibong plays a unique role in Mark Zuckerberg's orbit. For nearly a decade, Zuckerberg has turned to Archibong any time he's come up with ideas for special projects at Facebook. Archibong is also Zuckerberg's point person in dealing with third-party developers. Outside of the office, the two executives are running buddies.  While Archibong, 38, has been a critical player at Facebook since joining the company in 2010, his position today is more central than ever. He's the company's head of new product experimentation, responsible for helping Facebook find its next big hit. He's also among the highest-ranking Black executives at the company, and the unofficial leader of the Black employee base at a time when racial tension internally and across the company's advertiser universe has reached a boiling point.  After the killing of George Floyd in late May by a police officer in Minneapolis and the subsequent nationwide protests for racial justice, tech's perpetual diversity problem...
