      Here's another way to make money off the slaughter of the innocents in Parkland, Fla.--bulletproof student backpacks.

      _____________________________________________________________________

      'The Florida school shooting that left 17 people dead has triggered a rise in the sales of bulletproof backpacks.

      'On Thursday, one day after former student Nikolas Cruz stormed Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla., killing 17 people and injuring dozens more, Massachusetts-based company Bullet Blocker was inundated with orders for bulletproof backpacks, comprising a 30 percent spike in sales.

      'The concept for the company originated in 1999 by father of two Joe Curran, a self-described “helicopter dad” and former U.S. Army Ranger in Lowell, Mass. Curran became concerned about school security after the 1999 Columbine High School massacre in Littleton, Colo., during which teens Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold killed 13 students and injured 20 others.

      'But would be eight years and three more school shootings before Curran had the resources to go into business. “Virginia Tech was the final straw for me,” he tells Yahoo Lifestyle, referring to Virginia Polytechnic student Seung-Hui Cho, who killed 32 people on the Blacksburg, Va., campus before committing suicide in 2007. “I started asking local schools for their security plans in the event of armed intruders and there weren’t any concrete plans, so I wanted to promote the idea of kids protecting themselves.”'

          Opinion. Is it time to start dissecting business structure and social structure in the EU/UK? How will Great Britain maintain sovereignty in the face of an unmitigated capitalist assault from Nations that dwarf her?

          Let business and society flourish say I, but let them be seperated.

          Interesting Silent Movie.

          A Businessman dicusses transactional techniques during a discussion about such matter. I suggest moat and max speed.

          The eyes do the talking..:) Business is always done face to face, after all, who breaks up a relationship via text these days? Hmmm.

              Meanwhile in the buiness world, Larry Fink a giant with over $6tn in holdings issued a letter to his CEOs on the topic of social justice..This is good news, but as per usual there are detractors..

              The tremor Wall Street felt last Tuesday was caused by a letter—the annual epistle from BlackRock CEO Larry Fink to CEOs of companies in which the world’s biggest institutional investor owns shares.

              To paraphrase an old EF Hutton TV ad, when BlackRock talks, people listen. Behind Fink is more than $6 trillion in global assets. That’s equal to 20% of the total U.S. market value, as measured by the Russell 3000 Index.Fink’s letter is too long to reprint, but here’s the salient part: “Society is demanding that companies…serve a social purpose. To prosper over time, every company must not only deliver financial performance, but also show how it makes a positive contribution to society.”

              I wonder how strange that sounds..

              Society is demanding that companies serve a social purpose. ?

              American Businesses Can't Find Workers

                  I had to post this because it is so funny. Back when Obama was President and Trump was just a passing thought a few in the family graduated from College with great grades. But the jobs didn't want to pay them. They were after cheap employees. Sure they got a few that had no choice but to work because they had families already started etc. But I told my family eventually they will have no choice but to pay you for all of that great four year education you got under your belt. Work for the fast foods and at least you will know how the bottom half lives and you won't repeat it if you end up in a supervisory position.


                  Well...the time has come business is mad as hell but realize the public will not be supporting their cheap labor any longer and they better start opening their wallets. They are now upping the salaries so they can keep their good workers and hire more good workers.

                  In New England ...

                  Restaurants can't find waiters, waitresses and cooks. One manufacturer was three months behind schedule as he struggled to hire workers for a new factory. Another industrial company with 100 employees had 20 job openings. Tech companies in Boston and elsewhere said it's getting harder to find software engineers.

                  On the southern East Coast ...

                  One trucking company said it's having so much trouble finding drivers that many of its vehicles were sitting idle in the parking lot, forcing the company to raise wages.

                  On the West Coast ...

                  Widespread reports of labor shortages forced bosses to hike wages. From farms to factories, employers said they couldn't find enough people, or enough skilled people. West Coast banks also reported prolonged job vacancies and searches for qualified candidates.

                  So the deal here folks is that you know that Trump will take credit for this but really he had nothing to do with it. People across the US did this because they refused to work for companies paying welfare pay. BTW even Walmart is under fire and they too had to increase wages to keep good employees. And then they had the nerve to blame the layoffs and store closings on the employees demanding better pay...

                  In some areas people worked long enough to get that first check and quit for some companies and the companies were repeatedly retraining new employees for which many of us know cost more money. It turned many businesses into revolving doors.


                  well, not any longer they believe Corporations are finally getting the message.
