SD Government Business Loan Hit With Loss – The Dakota News Network

(Pierre, SD) — A South Dakota government business loan program is being hit with a loss. Directors of the South Dakota Economic Development Finance Authority agreed Wednesday to take a 35-thousand dollar loss on a loan made to a Kadoka business. Fromm’s Hardware and Plumbing were sold for less than what was expected to pay for the loan. The authority will receive over 69 thousand from the sale, thousands under what was owed on the loan.

Rams’ biggest winners and losers from training camp

It was a competition at punter between Dicker and Riley Dixon, but the signs right now point toward the Rams keeping the veteran over the undrafted rookie. Dicker is listed as the backup behind Dixon on the depth chart, and Joe DeCamillis has a connection to Dixon from their days together with the Broncos.

“I would say there’s a definite competition. I think both guys have done a good job. Riley’s obviously a veteran. I’ve had him before in Denver. He’s got a very similar skill set to what we had before, but Cam’s doing a good job for us too so it should be a real good battle,” DeCamillis said almost two weeks ago.

We’ll see who gets more opportunities to punt in the preseason.

Young People Don’t ‘Want to Work’

  • In a recent podcast, Whole Foods CEO John Mackey said socialism is taking over the US.
  • Mackey also expressed concern that younger people “don’t seem like they want to work.”
  • The co-founder is leaving the chain in September and says he feels more free to express his opinions.

Whole Foods CEO John Mackey said he fears “socialists are taking over” in the US and that young people “don’t seem like they want to work.”

The co-founder of the supermarket chain made the statements in a podcast that was released on Wednesday with Reason Magazine, a monthly libertarian publication.

“They’re marching through institutions,” Mackey said in the interview in response to questions around the labor shortage and the impact of the pandemic on Whole Foods.

“They’re taking over everything. It looks like they’ve taken over a lot of the corporations. It looks like they’ve taken over the military. And it’s just continuing. You know, I’m a capitalist at heart, and I believe in liberty and capitalism. Those are my twin values. And I feel like, you know, with the way freedom of speech is today, the movement on gun control, a lot of the liberties that I’ve taken for granted most of my life, I think, are under threat.”

Spokespeople from Whole Foods and its parent company, Amazon, did not respond to a request for comment ahead of publication.

The 68-year-old attributes much of the political and social changes in the US to the younger generation.

“I feel like I’ve become my father,” he said. “I don’t understand the younger generation.” 

The CEO said Whole Foods has had difficulty recruiting new workers since the pandemic started, even as the chain hiked wages. Mackey attributed the labor shortage to COVID-19 unemployment benefits and said the company has had greater difficulty recruiting in more “liberal cities” like New York, Los Angeles, or San Francisco.

“Younger people aren’t quick to work because they want meaningful work,” Mackey told Reason Magazine. “You can’t expect to start with meaningful work. You’re going to have to earn it over time.”

Over the past few years, Whole Foods and its parent company Amazon have been repeatedly accused of union busting. In 2020, Insider’s Hayley Peterson reported that the grocery chain had created a heat map to track stores that were at risk of unionizing. 

Mackey is one of several to claim people no longer want to work. Earlier this year, Kim Kardashian sparked backlash when she said “It seems like nobody wants to work these days.” It’s been an all too common refrain since the pandemic started, but the perception had been around for decades.

One expert previously told Insider the notion that younger generations are lazier and more entitled is just another “generational effect” or form of “back in my day.”

Mackey, who says he believes in “conscious capitalism” — a business philosophy that says companies should operate ethically and serve the interests of all instead of just corporate interests — said he felt comfortable sharing his thoughts since he will be leaving the brand on September 1 after 44 years at the company.

“I have muzzled myself ever since 2009,” Mackey said, referring to an op-ed he wrote for The Wall Street Journal 13 years ago where he criticized Obamacare. The interview sparked backlash and a boycott on Whole Foods.

“My board basically shut me down. It’s like a father, they started attacking the child, and I was intimidated enough to shut up,” Mackey added.

But, the CEO said in six weeks he will be fully free to express his political opinions.

“I was telling my leadership team, pretty soon, you’re going to be hearing about ‘crazy John’ who’s no longer muzzled, and you’re going to have to say, ‘We can’t stop John from talking any longer,'” Mackey said.

“The people of Bangladesh are in heaven compared to other countries amid the global recession,” said Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen today (August 12, 2022).

A specific faction is spreading fear that Bangladesh will have a similar disaster as Sri Lanka, however, this is baseless, he told reporters after a view-exchange meeting on land acquisition for an expansion project of Sylhet Osmani International Airport, reports our Sylhet correspondent.

When asked if Switzerland would be requested for information about money launderers again, the minister replied that countries, where money is laundered, do not wish to exchange such information.

Earlier the finance ministry and Bangladesh Bank had sought information about 67 people and their money in Swiss banks. At that time, they gave information about only one person.

Although the information was sought several times, Switzerland, a friend of Bangladesh was urged not to provide misinformation, the minister said.
