    What’s the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun? A good guy with a gun. If you’re in trouble and your life is in danger who do you want nearby? Do you want someone who legally carries a firearm or would you prefer to not defend yourself? Odds are that your first instinct will be to call the police (good guys with guns) but that’s not always enough. Sometimes, the police can’t get there in time. What do you do then? A bad guy with a knife tried to force himself on a woman in a Florida...

    The Hill ^ | 09/18/18 11:03 AM EDT | By Brett Samuels -
    Lawmakers from Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania sent a letter to Walmart executives earlier this month asking them to "demonstrate their corporate responsibility" and stop the sale of items with Soviet imagery. The officials argued that carrying the items meant Walmart was participating in "promotion, among its customers worldwide, of totalitarianism, human rights abuse and suppression of freedom and democracy, the values that allowed such corporations as Walmart to grow and prosper.”

    Lithuania on Friday urged American retail giant Walmart to stop selling T-shirts and hoodies with Soviet hammer and sickle symbols, insisting the image insults victims of often deadly Soviet-era persecution. “We sent a letter to Walmart requesting the withdrawal of products with Soviet symbols and we are still waiting for a reaction,” Lithuanian ambassador to the US Rolandas Krisciunas said. The hammer and sickle symbol is banned in Lithuania... The Baltic state’s foreign minister Linas Linkevicius tweeted: “You wouldn’t buy Nazi-themed clothing, would you? “We trust @Walmart’s moral stance & call to withdraw products with the symbols of mass murders.”...

    There could be a future where robots will do most of your grocery shopping for you. And for some Walmart shoppers, that future is getting even closer. Walmart (WMT), the world’s largest seller of groceries, will begin piloting a robotics system for its fast-growing online grocery pickup (OGP) service in one of its stores. The retailer has teamed up with Massachusetts-based Alert Innovation to deploy its Alphabot, a first-of-its-kind technology, in its supercenter store in Salem, New Hampshire just off of Interstate 93. “This is about the evolution of retail,” Alert Innovation CEO John Lert told Yahoo Finance. “So, we...

    Just one link in chain of corruption out of Boston FBI office. Disgraced, fired FBI agent Peter Strzok worked in the Boston office of the Famous But Incompetent agency. Why am I not surprised? The most corrupt G-man in American history getting his start in the most corrupt outpost of the squalid agency — it makes perfect sense. .... Yesterday I called the office of special counsel Robert Mueller, the former U.S. attorney for Boston, who knew all of the six or seven FBI agents who were accused in federal court of taking payoffs from gangsters. Some of them were...

    Walmart’s ongoing battle with Amazon for the retail crown is expanding well beyond retail, and it’s forcing one of the largest companies in the world to reexamine its DNA. In the last six months alone, Walmart has partnered with scores of tech firms to better compete with Amazon and make progress in markets that may become pivotal years down the line. It’s also begun rethinking how it views itself: a traditional big-box retail giant that now hopes it can be nimble enough to compete with one of technology’s most powerful players. Following its purchase of Jet.com to advance its e-commerce...

Deputies posted photos on Facebook of the seized steaks along with Jordan and his moped. "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor...

It appears that Walmart has now taken down the listing for the shirt, caving in to the pressure. Another shirt that said “45 You’re Fired” has also been removed from the site. ...

    This month some important Walmart news did not get the attention it deserved. The news wasn't some flashy announcement about virtual reality or about some new service for busy Manhattanites. It was something much more subtle and much more substantive. It was the hire of Valerie Casey. Google "Valerie Casey" even today and only two listings make mention of her newfound connection with Walmart on the first page of the returned search results. This amount of attention is unjustifiably slight. Let this piece then serve as the hire's coming out party. Shrewdly, Walmart has made Valerie Casey, formerly of Frog,...

    PHOENIX — Korean-inspired cooking sauces made by a Mesa grandmother will soon be on Walmart shelves. Kay Weldon cooked up the first sauce in the 1990s when she owned a restaurant in Albuquerque, New Mexico. A favorite among customers was her chicken wings because of her sauce. She started out serving the chicken wings as part of a Friday lunch special. “It was sweet, tangy and spicy,” she said. “It was a big hit. My lunch line was 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. nonstop on Fridays.” Ten years later, she sold the restaurant, got married and moved to Arizona with...
