My in-depth report about a lawsuit targeting mug shot websites. Some of those targeted have done nothing but be a relative of someone convicted of a crime. Google recently rolled out an algorithm to demote these websites, but alleged victims would like to see more done.

After investigating this whole Darden mess for this article, I found that things have gone even further downhill at Olive Garden since I worked there 10-15 years ago.
Employees of Darden Restaurants, Inc. (NYSE:DRI) have waded into the fray between the company and Starboard Value LP.

Hi William, thanks for the message. Things have gotten messy with Darden's board of directors, but Darden employees may be getting caught in the crossire. Here's the latest.   http://www.valuewalk.com/2014/10/darden-restaurants-inc-loses-starboard/

The 2014 proxy season has certainly been a busy one, but apparently shareholders aren’t usually in agreement with the small minority of investors who bring proposals to companies’ proxy ballots. 
Again this year, they found that a very small group of investors dominated the shareholder proposal process. In fact, only three investors

Leased a Leaf over the summer. Told the salesman we needed it to commute 25 miles each way every day, but he did not tell us the range drops to 40 miles a charge when it's cold and the heat is on. He claimed the engine block heater in the newer model of the Leaf prevented the weather-related range issues we were aware of with other electric cars, but that is a lie. So I took it back because it did not fulfill our needs when winter came. Was happy with the used Altima I purchased, but then a day or two later, the brakes started to squeak. Took it in and found out there's actually something wrong with the brakes that's more than just a squeak, so they sold me what was supposed to be a "certified used car" with bad brakes. I guess the only good thing is at least it wasn't bad enough that I can't drive it. Or at least I hope they're not letting me drive around on brakes that are about to go out completely. They told me they ordered parts to fix the brakes, but it's been a week, and I have yet to hear back. I'll be calling them yet again because the squeak is getting worse. It sounds like they would have tried to make me pay for the brakes too if I hadn't purchased the warranty. How does a car get "certified used" status if there's something wrong with the brakes? It doesn't help either that they messed up the payoff on my Leaf. If you do trade in a car with a payoff balance at this dealer, make sure you follow up with the lender on your previous car loan to make sure they actually paid it. However, I do not recommend this dealer at all. There have been huge problems every step of the way.
