(Jake May/The Flint Journal via AP) In Flint, Mich. there is a famous block of concrete that for decades has served as a community message board. Like an old-school Facebook feed, residents use it to post personal news, images, upcoming events and commentary in sprawling graffiti. This week, several residents went to “The Block” (or “The Rock,” depending on who you ask) with a message. In big, black capital letters they painted: “YOU WANT OUR TRUST?? Putin: I didn't mean to scare Angela Merkel with dog. Merkel, reportedly fearful of dogs since one attacked her in 1995, was photographed looking distinctly uncomfortable when Putin brought his large black Labrador Koni into a meeting at his summer residence in Sochi, Russia, in January 2007.

Martin Shkreli Arrested on Securities Fraud Charges. 32-year-old suspected of plundering Retrophin to pay debts By Christie Smythe and Keri Geiger | December 17, 2015 Photographer: Francesco Nazardo A boyish drug company entrepreneur, who rocketed to infamy by jacking up the price of a life-saving pill from $13.50 to $750, was arrested by federal agents at his Manhattan home early Thursday morning on securities fraud related to a firm he founded.
Martin Shkreli, 32, ignited a firestorm over drug prices in September and became a symbol of defiant greed. The federal case against him has nothing to do with pharmaceutical costs, however. In the case that closely tracks that suit, federal prosecutors accused Shkreli of engaging in a complicated shell game after his defunct hedge fund, MSMB Capital Management, lost millions. 2,000% price hike for infant seizure drug called 'absurd' Fox News in Ofcom breach for Birmingham 'Muslim only' claim. Broadcasting regulator Ofcom has found Fox News in breach of the broadcasting code after one of its contributors called Birmingham a "no-go zone" for non-Muslims.
The comment was made during an episode of Justice with Judge Jeanine by guest Steve Emerson in January. An Ofcom spokesperson said it was a "serious breach for a current affairs programme". Fox said it regretted the comments and apologised to the people of Birmingham. In an interview on 11 January, American terrorism commentator Mr Emerson said: "There are actually cities like Birmingham that are totally Muslim, where non Muslims just simply don't go in.
" The programme was reflecting on the Paris terrorist attacks in January, in which 17 people were killed. Fox News is an American channel but is licensed by Ofcom for broadcast in the UK. Inside Amazon: Wrestling Big Ideas in a Bruising Workplace. Photo.

Chief Executive of AOL Apologizes to Staff for the Public Firing of an Employee. The boss, not the workload, causes workplace depression. The development of workplace depression has surprisingly little to do with work pressure. The sense of being treated unfairly by the boss, on the other hand, is closely associated with the risk of becoming depressed. (Photo: Shutterstock) A huge pile of unfinished work is not the main reason why employees become depressed, concludes an extensive new Danish study. Surprisingly, the study indicates that a heavy workload has no effect on whether or not employees become depressed. Instead, it is the work environment and the feeling of being treated unfairly by the management that has the greatest effect on an employee’s mood. ”We may have a tendency to associate depression and stress with work pressure and workload; however, our study shows that the workload actually has no effect on workplace depression,” says one of the researchers behind the new study, psychologist Matias Brødsgaard Grynderup, PhD, of the Department of Clinical Medicine at Aarhus University.
