The test also detects ovarian and lung cancer.Based on diabetic test paper, Jack created a simple dip-stick sensor to test blood or urine to determine whether or not a patient has early-stage pancreatic cancer. His study resulted in over 90 percent accuracy and showed his patent-pending sensor to be 28 times faster, 28 times less expensive and over 100 times more sensitive than current tests.Jack, who was awarded $75,000, said the inspiration came from an uncle who died of the disease.(WATCH a video below, or read more at WBAL-TV)Thanks to Ruth Miller for sending the link!
Nacho Fernandez: The Madrid defender offers versatility at the back, but in the end Del Bosque opted for Barcelona’s Marc Bartra. As always when it comes to naming a squad for a major tournament, all sorts of debates are generated. They say everyone has a manager inside them and this becomes apparent when the list of players is given – espeically when it comes to talking about the players left out. Juan Mata: Has had an irregular role at Manchester United and in Spain’s midfield there is not room for everyone. He’s never been one of Del Bosque’s favourites. Adrian: The West Ham goalkeeper has had a fine season in England – much better than Espanyol’s Pau Lopez, for example. Miki Soria Sergi Roberto: Despite a call up earlier this year for Spain, his lack of minutes at Barcelona in recent weeks have counted against him. 17/05/2016 at 13:39 Diego Costa: One of the most controversial cases. For his performances on the pitch, he could have been included, but for his attitude on the pitch he could prove a danger in such short tournaments. On Tuesday, Vicente del Bosque named a 25-man provisional squad for the European Championships in France – plus 11 players who will train with the squad later this month – and the reaction has focused on those omitted. Diego Costa, Juan Mata, Javi Martinez and Sergi Roberto are among the players not included. Here are the biggest names to miss the cut: Santi Cazorla: Despite returning to action with Arsenal in the final game of the season, the five months spent injured have been decisive when it came to naming the squad. A sensible omission for that reason. Fernando Torres: Has not been a part of the Spain squad for a while, but his goalscoring form of late had pushed him back into contention. It wasn’t to be, though, and he will not get the chance to repeat his winning goal from the Euro 2008 final. CEST Javi Martinez: His fitness problems go against him, despite the fact he has recovered for the end of the season this year. He’s not played for La Roja since 2014. Paco Alcacer: Aritz Aduriz’s fine season and the presence of the more reliable Alvaro Morata have led to Del Bosque ignoring the goals scored by Alcacer for his club and country. Los Che’s poor season has not benefitted him and he’s not been able to be at his best. read more

New Celtic manager Brendan Rodgers has said he has joined the club with the aim of dominating Scottish football and reviving the club’s European fortunes.Rodgers spoke to the media for the first time since being appointed as successor to Ronny Deila at the club and targeted success on all fronts at what he said was “one of the biggest clubs in the world”.The former Liverpool boss revealed that he had the opportunity to join clubs in England and abroad but that conversations with Celtic owner Dermot Desmond and chief executive Peter Lawwell had sold him on a move to manage the team he supported as a boy.Now, tasked with moving the club forward, the Northern Irishman cited Porto and Benfica as examples of the success he planned to deliver. Both Celtic chief executive Lawwell and chairman Ian Bankier labelled Rodgers the ideal candidate for the club, confirming widespread interest from around the sport in the vacancy following Deila’s exit.“There was huge interest in the job but Brendan was the outstanding candidate,” said Lawwell. “I’m really hopeful that there are special times ahead for Celtic.” Rodgers underlined his commitment to youth, commenting: “Your first look has to be within your own youth department. You might have a £5 million or £10 million player in your own academy.”However, the Northern Irishman insists he has received assurances that finances are in place to make moves in the transfer market should the right player become available.The former Liverpool boss will favour a smaller squad of around 25 players, once again highlighting the importance of giving youth a route into the first team, using Raheem Sterling as an example of his pedigree in developing young players.But the 41-year-old was also keen to talk up the quality of the squad he has inherited from Ronny Deila, highlighting in particular the “drive” and “intensity” of Scott Brown. “He is someone I have admired from a distance for a long time now,” he said. read more

As he approached the suspected shoplifter and asked for a receipt for the TVs, the situation quickly turned violent when the man pulled out a gun and shot Ferguson in the abdomen. Ferguson was immediately rushed to GwinnettBill DavisMedical Center, but died a short time later from his injuries.This is how quickly that lives—and families—can change forever. This is the same type of situation that almost all of us in the loss prevention community have faced on countless occasions in retail stores all across the country. Many of us can tell stories about situations that escalated, facing desperate individuals that take foolish steps to avoid apprehension and the potential loss of personal freedom. Unfortunately, there are also those of us that can no longer share such stories.We never know what we’re walking into when we attempt to detain a suspected thief. We can only guess at the circumstances that led them to this ill-advised situation and the potential consequences of their actions. We’re trained on how to manage these situations and how to take the necessary precautions to avoid risks and injury. But the harsh reality is that tragedy can still strike at any time. It could have happened to any one of us—likely on any number of occasions and in any number of different situations.There are times when loss prevention can be a dangerous profession, and the last thing that any of us wants is a reminder like the events that unfolded on the evening of April 10th. But the tragedy reaches beyond the events of that day.Honoring the Family Jaseramie Dion “JD” Ferguson had worked at the store for seven months when he was shot. But it was much more than a young career that JD was launching. A married father of three, he left behind his wife, Tiana, a three-year-old daughter, Aryana, a one-year-old son, Jordan, and their three-JD Fergusonmonth-old daughter, Ava. We lost a member of our extended family with the passing of this young man. But we must also remember that a wife lost her husband, and three children lost their father.Representing the Loss Prevention Foundation and the Loss Prevention Benevolent Fund, I had the distinct honor of visiting with JD’s wife, Tiana, back in May. She requested to meet me at the very store where JD lost his life. And while I was taken back by the courage that this young woman has shown and the dedication that she has for her young family, I was overwhelmed by the gratitude that Mrs. Ferguson expressed when the Loss Prevention Benevolent Fund presented her with a check for $10,000 to help assist with the financial responsibilities that she was facing in the wake of this difficult time.No one should feel that pain, and the financial assistance that was provided can never make up for this family’s loss. But the relief and appreciation that rushed across her face was overpowering. Tiana was accompanied by her loving family, who showed the support that I knew would help her get through these difficult times. On behalf of the LP/AP community, we would like to send our heartfelt thoughts and prayers to the Ferguson family.Social Media Monitoring and the Power of InformationBy Brittany Griffin and Read Hayes, PhDFacebook, Google+, Instagram, Twitter, Tumblr…these social media entities are readily becoming an essential unit within the business world. Woven into the very fabric of data collection, social media monitoring is being utilized as a data extraction tool to better predict, collect, and analyze various data events within any organization. By enabling users to better predict patron purchases, collect useful information from potential threat sources, and analyze current industry trends, social media monitoring is widely adaptable.Social media has become synonymous with the way information is communicated during this day and age. Unlike the mediums for communication in the past, social media information is instant, easily disseminated, widespread, and has now become an essential intelligence resource for any organization.Awareness Is Key Awareness is a key factor when it comes to understanding the full benefits and potential consequences that social media can have on the loss prevention industry. It is imperative for each organization to understand and adapt to the various capabilities that social media monitoring resources available today have to offer. Such awareness, if only at the aggregate level, will create a foundation for asset protection/loss prevention professionals to utilize when gathering intelligence for their organizations.This intel will catapult the level of communication amongst the users of social media within the organization. It will be paramount with respect to the analysis, dissemination, and more importantly, the collection of data. Brand message and identity can be better protected, and transferal of data-sensitive information can be more closely monitored. Potential threats made against organizations can be tracked down to the source as the existence of a loss prevention tool is created.The Role of LPRC LPRC researchers are working with multiple retailers to enhance situational awareness for loss prevention/asset protection professionals in the field. By utilizing a resource that has the ability to forewarn companies of individuals on their way to steal or attack a store location, by detecting risk through social media and the dark web, retailers are better able to keep employees and customers safe while mitigating potential risk and loss. Early warning allows local and corporate leaders to respond more rapidly, implementing a strategic plan of action and a more efficient response.Social media monitoring can play a critical role in the safety and protection of the retail environment. Offenders often signal their criminal intent by recruiting, scouting, or bragging online, providing actionable pre-event indicators. Retailers should then work more closely with law enforcement to identify and define possible threats, and implement an appropriate response. This is a key proponent of LPRC research efforts.Gift Card CloningBy Bill Turner, LPC While effective in driving sales, gift cards have also caused fraud headaches for retailers for years. Gift card fraud can range from physical theft to exploiting errors on the merchant side. One newer gift card scam involves gift card cloning.To clone a gift card, thieves steal information from inactivated cards on stores shelves, duplicate the cards using a magnetic card reader/writer, and wait for the cards to be activated. Once activated, they spend the cloned gift cards before the purchaser tries to use their legitimate card. One of the biggest mistakes retailers make is the open display of inactivated gift cards, making them physically accessible to thieves.Consider a 2009 case from Beaverton, Oregon. Sealtiel Chacon Zepeda was standing at a Fred Meyer sales register spending a gift card when curiosity struck. He wondered how gift cards worked, how the little magnetic stripe on the back of them turned cards into store credit, and how easily he could reproduce the information stored on the card. Twenty hours of Internet searching sparked an idea that led to Zepeda stealing $6,000 from local stores and causing numerous customers to be holding useless gift cards they had legitimately purchased or received as gifts.When backtracking the rash of customer complaints, fraud investigators detected that the cards had been tampered with when they saw that each card in question had racked up many balance inquiries per day. The culprit was a computer program that Zepeda downloaded to electronically check each card’s balances hundreds of times a day. Police were able to link Zepeda to the crime through his computer’s Internet protocol address combined with in-store video surveillance.After being caught, Zepeda agreed to give the police a full description of his gift card cloning activities. After researching how gift cards work, he purchased a magnetic stripe reader online. He then began stealing blank gift cards on open display at numerous retailers and scanning them through his reader. He would return some of the scanned cards to the stores and wait for the computer program to alert him to when the cards were activated and loaded with money. Using a magnetic card writer, Zepeda then rewrote a leftover stolen card’s magnetic stripe with the activated card’s information, a classic example of gift card cloning. After his arrest, police found about 1,000 stolen gift cards from many retailers at Zepeda’s residence.Gift card cloning continues to become more popular, and all merchants need to take basic precautions to prevent gift card cloning. Cards should be secured, so they are only accessible to store employees. Requiring a PIN also offers an additional layer of protection, as the redeemer needs to have the physical card in their possession in order to use it. Retailers should also implement programs and procedures to identify computer-generated gift card balance checking, thus signaling potential criminal activity.What Is a Loss Prevention Manager?By Jacque Brittain, LPC What is a loss prevention manager? What might appear to be a fairly simple question now requires a much more complicated answer in a new age of retail where roles and responsibilities are changing on a regular and consistent basis.A Common Misconception To the average consumer, a loss prevention manager is often perceived as a “security guard,” a reactionary presence in a retail establishment whose primary responsibility is to apprehend shoplifters. Tales of shoplifters subjected to heavy-handed forms of justice and employee investigations that often result in nothing more than a simple slap on the wrist have been viewed by many as the norm—and why not? Shoplifters are primarily kids stealing candy bars and lipstick, right? Does it really make that much difference if an employee borrows a couple bucks from the register to buy their lunch once in awhile? The profession can be perceived as a necessary but unattractive and largely unwanted cost of doing business—a value measured simply by the extent of its potentially negative impact.Those who have filled these roles have often been seen as uneducated, inexperienced individuals who are passing the time waiting to finish college or for an opportunity to become a public law enforcement officer, an individual that “wasn’t good enough” to serve in law enforcement, or a former law enforcement officer biding their time until they retire. They are often viewed as rigid, authoritarian, and one-sided. They have a singular objective and an inflexible view of right and wrong. They “look for the worst in people” and are frequently discriminatory in their approach to the customers visiting their stores. What would make someone pursue a job like that?The Real Role of Loss Prevention In reality, these perceptions are far from accurate. Serving in a position as a security guard is a fine and important profession, but respectfully is absolutely nothing like serving as a retail loss prevention manager any more than making cars is the same job as selling cars. There may be a common gear, but there are some significant differences that distinguish one profession from the next.Loss prevention managers and police officers often work together in various situations and while conducting certain investigations. There are different aspects of the profession that require similar skills, mutual respect, and strong working relationships. But that doesn’t mean that every loss prevention professional has the desire to serve as a law enforcement officer. In fact, depending on the retailer and the specific role, a background as a law enforcement officer might not be a good fit for the company or a good fit for a former officer looking to pursue a second career.The role of loss prevention is to enhance the profitability of the business—just like every other role in retail. To a large extent, this involves exploring opportunities and implementing plans that result in the reduction of retail shrink, and all of the various issues that can result in retail losses whether the result of external losses, internal losses, operational and paperwork errors, and any and all other potential sources. It encompasses the protection of all company assets, as well as our customers and employees. Often there is a significant responsibility for safety, various audit functions, employee training and awareness, and other responsibilities within the business. Ideas, responsibilities, approaches, philosophies—they’re all going to vary slightly based on the individual program. But ultimately loss prevention requires taking a more active role in the business of retail and becoming a balanced, flexible, and open-minded professional.Cyber Crime and Ransomware: No Business Is ImmuneBy Bill Turner, LPC The LP Insider has featured many articles on cyber crime, data protection, and data corruption. Business giants and the government continue to be the primary targets of criminal hackers. But any business or individual able to pay a ransom to hackers who “hijack” valuable data and hold it hostage can fall victim to ransomware.Ransomware is defined as “a type of malicious software designed to block access to a computer or entire system’s data until a sum of money is paid.” Early incidents of ransomware mainly targeted individuals. Perpetrators of this type of cyber crime are now targeting businesses, obviously because businesses are perceived to have more money and more to lose than most individuals. The FBI estimates that ransomware extortion tactics will cost business over $1 billion in losses going forward.And no business is immune from cyber crime and ransomware, not even the sports industry. NASCAR racing teams constantly face complicated technical challenges to optimize their vehicles for peak performance. But rarely has there been a problem quite like the one Circle Sport – Leavine Family Racing (CSLFR) faced earlier this year. Much of their critical data was held hostage. It began in April when the team’s crew chief noticed some unfamiliar files on his computer. Not thinking much of it, he continued operating as usual, compiling data that teams typically use for races including track data, information from test facilities, and personal files. An engineer on the team later noticed a cache of files being uploaded to the team’s Dropbox account and got suspicious that something bad was happening. Sure enough, when the crew chief later accessed his computer, he found that his files were inaccessible. Only one file would open. That file issued instructions to the team to either pay a ransom within forty-eight hours or lose the files forever.The files held hostage included everything pertaining to the racing team. Detailed setups involving their race cars, lists of parts, and custom simulations with value in the millions of dollars were encrypted by the virus. The team would be severely crippled without access to the data being held hostage. In an amazing twist, cyber crime didn’t pay much this time. The hackers only demanded $500, payable in bitcoins. The team paid the ransom and got access to their data back. The unusually small demand is rare, however. The ransom demanded is usually in the millions, if not tens of millions of dollars.No individual or business is immune to cyber crime. And we know that there are many companies and services available to aid in identifying and correcting existing troubles and preventing future cyber attacks. It behooves every individual and business to be sure they have resources to fully protect their computers and systems from the sophisticated and serious threats posed by criminal hackers. Is your personal computer safe? Is your company’s data security ensured? If you don’t know, find out.More on LossPreventionMedia.comFor more original news content, see the following articles:Macy’s Shoplifting Penalty Challenged in New YorkWhat Is Omni-channel Retailing?Retail Theft Statistics: Staying Focused on What’s Really Most ImportantThe Retail Industry Continues to Chase AmazonThe Debate over Restorative Justice ProgramsWant to Know How to Reduce Shrink in Retail?Every Crisis Management Plan Needs to Address Workplace ViolenceTerrorism, Workplace Violence, and Insurance ImplicationsFatigue, Pain, and Loss of Productivity in Retail WorkAre Thefts by Senior Citizens Rivaling Juvenile Shoplifting?EyeOnLP Videos Our original content includes videos produced by the magazine’s EyeOnLP team as well as from Wicklander-Zulawski:EyeOnLP: Leading Professional Development Change with Game ChangersEyeOnLP: ORC Management and Successful Civil RecoveryWZ / IAI Interviewing Tip: Translate Your WZ SkillsWZ / IAI Interviewing Tip: The Innocent’s Fear of Being DisbelievedWZ / IAI Interviewing Tip: The Agitated InterviewerCareer Development As part of the magazine’s mission to promote career growth at all levels, our LP101 article series address base LP knowledge and career advice:Taking the Next Step along Your Loss Prevention Career PathLP101: Embezzlement in the Retail EnvironmentA Resignation Letter Should Help Move Your Loss Prevention Career ForwardLP101: Credit Card FraudThe Crossroads along a Loss Prevention Career PathCompleting the Loss Prevention Job Search: Preparing for Your ResignationIn a Job Interview, Appearance is More than Just the Way We LookLPM Voice Our LPM Voice articles offer in-depth discussion of key topics of interest to LP professionals:How Sears Holdings Changed Its View on First Offenders and Earned “Gushing Praise” from Law EnforcementIncrease ROI and Uncover Issues through Video-Based Operations AuditsTechnology, ROI Driving CA Partnership Program ParticipationEverybody Wins: A Fresh Way to Manage the Scourge of Shoplifting8 Tips to Protect Profits during the Back-to-School RushLoss Prevention Technology That’s Expanding Our Video Solutions Stay UpdatedGet critical information for loss prevention professionals, security and retail management delivered right to your inbox.
