Amazon buying Whole Foods in $13.7 billion deal

Online retail giant Amazon is acquiring grocery chain Whole Foods in a deal worth about $13.7 billion, the two companies announced Friday.“Whole Foods Market has been satisfying, delighting and nourishing customers for nearly four decades — they’re doing an amazing job and we want that to continue," Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos said in a statement. Amazon has experimented with local food delivery via its AmazonFresh program, created in 2007, in a handful of cities, including its home base of Seattle, San Francisco and New York. But the purchase of Whole Foods and its 460 stories in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. give the company access to instant infrastructure — including the expensive facilities needed for handling perishables — in scores of urban and suburban markets. Amazon has also dabbled in drone delivery of its books and other packages; the sprawling network of Whole Foods stores could form the basis of the sort of localized distribution network future delivery-by-drone would require.With the purchase, Bezos continues expanding his reach into industries beyond e-commerce. He personally owns both the Washington Post and Blue Origin, a commercial space exploration company. Whole Foods CEO John Mackey will remain in charge of that company after the acquisition is finalized.

Stagnant Middle Class?

(Don Boudreaux) TweetAccording to a January 2014 Consumer Reports article, citing figures from the Food Marketing Institute, the average supermarket had fewer than nine thousand items in 1975.  By 2008, that number had quintupled. So reports Michael Ruhlman (on page 31 of his 2017 book, Grocery: The Buying and Selling of Food in America.) Not doubled.  Not tripled. […]

Here's Why You Shouldn't Jump To Conclusions About Mass Shooters' Motivations

Gabby Giffords (D-Ariz.) and a group of constituents she was meeting near a Tucson Safeway in Arizona. He killed six people and injured 13 more. Shooting a politician is often a political act. And people on both sides of America’s ever-widening political divide were quick to allege that Loughner’s politics were opposite of their own. On Wednesday morning, a man police have identified as James T. Hodgkinson opened fire on Republican lawmakers practicing for the annual congressional charity baseball game. And people are making the same sort of unsourced claims others made about Loughner. “I do know that America is divided,” Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) said Wednesday morning. “Violence is appearing in the streets. And it’s coming from the left.” Here’s another example (there are plenty more on Twitter): The Left has normalized violence against Republicans. Terrible day. https://t.co/QnyLkkABPI— Gayle Trotter (@gayletrotter) June 14, 2017 The alleged gunman may very well turn out to have had a political motivation. Two Republican congressman have said that a man they say matched his description asked them before the shooting whether Republicans or Democrats were practicing on the field. But we don’t know for sure enough yet. In these moments, like many others in journalism, it really helps to pump the brakes. Often, the shooter’s motivations are far from clear. Take Loughner. At Mother Jones, the liberal political magazine where I worked in 2011, we were more careful. Instead of jumping to conclusions, we reported out the story ― and found that Loughner’s politics were unclear at best. The Monday after the shooting, we published an exclusive interview with Bryce Tierney, a close friend of Loughner who may have been the last person to exchange messages with him before the shooting. Loughner, Tierney said, had become obsessed with “lucid dreaming.” This is the idea that conscious dreams are an alternative reality that a person can “inhabit and control” and became “more interested in this world than our reality.” Loughner’s grudge against Giffords, Tierney said, originated not in any policy dispute but rather in her failure to correctly answer a question he claimed to have posed to her at a town hall: “What is government if words have no meaning?” “It wasn’t like he was in a certain party or went to rallies … It’s not like he’d go on political rants,” Tierney added.  It was the first in a series of stories that changed the narrative about the Giffords shooting. “What the cacophony of facts do suggest is that Mr. Loughner is struggling with a profound mental illness (most likely paranoid schizophrenia, many psychiatrists say),” The New York Times would report a week after Mother Jones published the Tierney interview. Loughner was later formally diagnosed with exactly that condition. He wasn’t a political activist of any stripe. He was just another mentally disturbed person with a gun. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Разоблачены организаторы розыгрышей билетов от имени авиакомпаний в соцсетях

Розыгрыши бесплатных авиабилетов, информация о которых распространялась в социальных сетях, оказались аферой. При помощи мошеннической схемы злоумышленники повышали приток трафика на совершенно посторонние сайты. Оказалось, что это сайты клиентов одной американской компании, которая занимается продвижением и монетизацией интернет- и мобильных приложений, пишет в своем отчете российская компания Group-IB. Например, несколько дней назад в Facebook появились посты с «розыгрышем» билетов от компаний Emirates и «Аэрофлот». Для участия в розыгрыше нужно было перейти по указанной мошенниками ссылке. В результате пользователь попадал на сайт типа «эмираты-бесплатно-2-билета-ком-абракадабра-точка-ком». На таких подставных сайтах для прикрытия использовались названия популярных авиакомпаний – Emirates, Lufthansa, El Al Israel Airlines, SPAR, Virgin America, Delta Air Lines, Air-France, Rolex, Aeroflot, а также сети супермаркетов Spar, Safeway, Tesco, производителя часов Rolex и изготовителя ручек Sharpie. Это делалось для того, чтобы пользователи не могли заподозрить ничего дурного. Читать дальше →
