CEO Doesn't Understand What Departments Do, Karen Catastrophe Ensues

Nothing is more infuriating than dealing with someone who is higher up on the chain of command that makes decisions without having the necessary understanding of the company, to execute successfully. By the sound of it, this CEO took an otherwise functional structure and ruined it with a Karen who had no idea what she was doing. The CEO went so far as to put Karen in charge of the people that actually knew what to do. Oh, no.

When Martin Shkreli isn't busy jacking up the price of a life-saving cancer and AIDS drug by 5,000 percent or being an idiot on Twitter, the disgraced pharmaceutical CEO is neck deep in sweet Karma.

San Diego-based Imprimis Pharmaceuticals Inc. announced they will sell the same exact drug Shkreli's company Turing Pharmaceuticals does, but for only $1 a pill.

Shkreli charges $750 a pill.

"We are looking at all of these cases where the sole-source generic companies are jacking the price way up," Mark Baum, Chief Executive at Imprimis, told the AP.

"There'll be many more of these."

Meanwhile, Shkreli decided to start a spat with CNBC on Twitter.

Martin Shkreli, the poor man's Donald Trump.

A man died after being run over by a Jelly Belly CEO's husband driving a tank

In a very sad and very weird story, a man lost his life after being run over by a tank, driven by a Jelly Belly executive's husband.

Oh, and it happened during a family reunion.

Apparently, the family-owned confectionary company is staffed with lovers of big military stuff. They need people to maintain and handle that big military stuff. Kevin Wright was one of those people.



The Los Angeles Times sheds some light on this strange story:



The accident occurred about 2:25 p.m. Saturday afternoon on the property of fourth-generation candy maker Herman Rowland Sr. during a family reunion, authorities said. Rowland is a collector of the military vehicles, which he stores in a restoration facility known as "The Tank Barn," the Daily Republic reported.

Rowland's daughter, Lisa Rowland Brasher, was named chief executive in March and reports to her father, who is now the company's chairman. It was her husband, Dwayne Brasher, 62, of Vacaville, who was driving the 1944 M5 tank, authorities said.

The California Highway Patrol said the victim was Kevin Wright, 54, of Suisun City, Calif.



Here's a picture of Wright:



Maybe the Jelly Belly family will stick to more pacifist hobbies in the future.

Microsoft Corp. today announced that its Board of Directors has appointed Satya Nadella as Chief Executive Officer and member of the Board of Directors effective immediately. Nadella previously held the position of Executive Vice President of Microsoft's Cloud and Enterprise group.

"During this time of transformation, there is no better person to lead Microsoft than Satya Nadella," said Bill Gates, Microsoft's Founder and Member of the Board of Directors. "Satya is a proven leader with hard-core engineering skills, business vision and the ability to bring people together. His vision for how technology will be used and experienced around the world is exactly what Microsoft needs as the company enters its next chapter of expanded product innovation and growth."

Since joining the company in 1992, Nadella has spearheaded major strategy and technical shifts across the company's portfolio of products and services, most notably the company's move to the cloud and the development of one of the largest cloud infrastructures in the world supporting Bing, Xbox, Office and other services. During his tenure overseeing Microsoft's Server and Tools Business, the division outperformed the market and took share from competitors.
