And they would have gotten away with it if it wasn't for some meddling investigators

Here's a Heartbreakers duo for the books: an Albany, N.Y., mother and her daughter have fessed up to computer crimes that scammed Coca-Cola out of $200,000.

KGW news reports that Carrie and Sarah Jones somehow figured out multiple winning codes to the bottecap contests on Coca-Cola's website, entering in codes using different identities and email addresses and selling their winnings.

Investigators became suspicious after they tracked down a high number of winnings to a specific IP address in Albany; the Jones plead guilty to computer crimes on Friday.

While it's unclear how the two women discovered the winning prize codes, the two have to pay Coca-Cola some $50,000 in restitution. But the mystery still has to be solved; "I speculate that there is more than Carrie and Sarah Jones involved in this situation," an Albany Police spokesperson said. "I mean, it boggles the mind that they could single-handedly fool a multi-billion dollar company like Coca Cola." We secretly want these two unsuspecting Albany residents to be genius hackers.

One Simple Way to Turn $5,000… into $1 Million a Year

Last month, I showed you how to get started and become fully invested – for life – with as little as $1,000, and then I showed you how you can do even better with only $5,000. We've seen that simply getting into the market can be the most important investment decision you'll ever make.

So today I want to show you an investment tactic that's going to get you into "primo" stocks… without having to pay primo prices. And even better, you'll never have to deal with a single broker (who'll charge you primo prices).

And best of all, these stocks, and the plan I'm going to show you to use with them, are going to boost your income like nothing else in this market will…

Biden tightens $1,400 stimulus check income limits amid pressure from moderate Dems

President Biden has endorsed a plan from moderate Democrats to narrow income਎ligibility for the third round of stimulus checks in his nearly $2 trillion coronavirus relief package, a Democratic source said Wednesday.

Under the latest proposal,ਊmericans earning $75,000 or less would receive the fully promised $1,400 payment. But the checks would phase out faster for individuals at higher income levels than in the version passed Saturday by House Democrats, with individuals making $80,000 a year or more and couples making $160,000 a year, or higher, no longer qualifying for the money.

The House version of the bill would also send the $1,400 payments to individuals earning $75,000 or below each year, but the money would phase out slower, with the eligibility cut-off at $100,000 for individuals and $200,000 per year for couples.

That means individuals earning between $80,000 and $100,000, and couples earning between $160,000 and $200,000, are newly excluded from a partial check under the newest plan endorsed by the Biden administration.

But progressives have signaled they will fight against tightening the income criteria for the payments.

"Further &apostargeting&apos or &apostightening&apos eligibility means taking survival checks away from millions of families who got them last time," Rep. Pramila Jayapal, who chairs the Congressional Progressive Caucus, tweeted this week. "That&aposs bad policy and bad politics too."

Stimulus check eligibility emerged as a major point of contention between different ideological factions of the Democratic Party. The party can&apost afford to lose the support of even a single Senate Democrat, as it needs all 50 members to pass the measure via simple majority with a procedural tool known as budget reconciliation.

Sen. Joe Manchin, D-W.V., has repeatedly argued the payments need to be better targeted and reportedly called for the checks to begin phasing out for individuals earning more than $50,000. Manchin also pushed to keep supplemental unemployment benefits at their current level of $300 a week, rather than increase them to $400 a week, as endorsed by Biden.

But the source told FOX Business that change is unlikely to happen.

Lawmakers are racing to send the legislation to Biden&aposs desk before March 14, when more thanꀑ million Americans will lose their jobless aid when two key federal jobless aid programs created a year ago under the CARES Act — and extended in the $900 billion relief package that Congress passed in December — lapse.

FOX Business&apos Blake Burman contributed to this report 

Claimants who refuse a suitable offer of work are typically ineligible to receive unemployment benefits, unless it is determined that the claimant has good cause to refuse to return to work.

Employers may report to the Division of Employment Security that an individual has refused an offer of work through the Refusal of Job Offer link on the Claims Services menu of their DES online account. DES will review information provided by the employer and the claimant to determine whether the claimant may continue receiving unemployment benefits.


See how we're working to ensure the health & safety of consumers & communities.

As the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to spread throughout the world, we are taking proactive steps grounded in science to protect the safety of our products, care for our more than 260,000 associates, their families and support our communities around the world.

Health and Safety

As a global company, PepsiCo sources ingredients and makes, moves and sells products from around the world. Product safety is our top priority and we want to reassert that direct risk to our product or ingredients is very low. Based on industry guidelines from multiple health authorities, including the EFSA and FDA, there is no evidence that food or food packaging is associated with the transmission of COVID-19 and that no recalls are anticipated if a person who works in a food or beverage production facility is diagnosed. In addition, according to both the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO), transmission by anything other than person-to-person contact is not typical of this virus, which means the risk of transmission via food and beverage products and ingredients is also very low. We are taking every precaution across our supply chain, and continue to work closely with authorities across our businesses and around the world to ensure the continued safety of our products and manufacturing locations everywhere we do business.

As a company, we are practicing social distancing at all our facilities around the world and have asked all PepsiCo associates who have the option, to work from home, and those who do not are adhering to social distancing guidelines from local and federal governments.

Global health agencies have made clear the most effective thing we can do to fight COVID-19 is to practice good hygiene, and we are taking this advice very seriously. We have increased cleaning frequency at all facilities globally and re-emphasized the importance of proper handwashing. Additionally, we are expanding the availability of hand sanitizer in our facilities, separating workstations, and providing masks for all of our frontline employees.

Paid Sick Leave

No one can take the place of our associates and we take their health and safety very seriously, especially those of our frontline associates who are continuing to make, move and sell our products and keep supermarket and grocery shelves stocked during this critical time. With this in mind, in our biggest market, the United States, we will provide our associates 100% of pay for a two-week period for those who need to quarantine, are assessed by a doctor and are symptomatic or have been diagnosed, or who are caring for a sick family member in their household. For those diagnosed or caring for a diagnosed family member, we will also provide a minimum of two-thirds of pay for up to 10 additional weeks.

If we were to close a facility due to COVID-19, and in the event that work could not be continued remotely, our associates in that facility will receive 100% of pay for up to 12 weeks. Finally, we recognize the burden inadequate childcare has on our associates during this time, so we are offering a minimum of two-thirds pay for up to 12 weeks, subject to approval, for associates who may be impacted by lack of available childcare due to school or daycare closures or the lack of availability of a regular caregiver because of coronavirus.

The additional compensation covers more than 90,000 frontline associates at both PepsiCo Beverages North America (PBNA) and PepsiCo Foods North America (PFNA) and consists of a minimum of an incremental $100 per week for full-time employees over the next month. We will also hire 6,000 new, full-time, full-benefit frontline employees across the U.S. in the coming months.

Community Impact

As COVID-19 reduces access to food and other essential goods for communities around the world, PepsiCo has invested more than $60 million globally and catalyzed an additional $59 million in funding from others to bring food and other vital resources to the most affected communities. As part of this effort, the company is providing funding for protective gear for healthcare workers, testing and screening services, and is in the process of distributing more than 100 million nutritious meals to at-risk populations.

Globally, PepsiCo has committed $7 million to the UN Foundation as part of the &ldquoOne World: Together At Home&rdquo campaign. Of these funds, $2 million is going to the World Health Organization COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund and a total of $5 million is being distributed to the following charitable organizations responding to COVID-19: Egyptian Foodbank, the Netherlands Foodbank, the Belgium Foodbank, the Belgium Red Cross, the Netherlands Foodbank, the Netherlands Red Cross, Les Restos Du Coeur, Secours Populaire Francais, ANDES, Trussell Trust, FareShare, Food Forward, Red Cross South Africa, Solidarity Fund South Africa, CARE programs in Thailand, United Way Westchester and Putnam in New York.

    Diversity and Inclusion

    PepsiCo and The Asian American Business Development Center (AABDC) jointly stand against anti-Asian racist acts that have become prevalent since the Coronavirus outbreak. We are troubled by the stigmatization of Asian Americans, particularly of East Asian origins, many of whom have faced indiscriminate blame for the pandemic solely due to their racial identities. As a result, we have signed the pledge and share the Joint Statement of AABDC to stand against hate and provide support to communities. Read more here.

    PepsiCo, together with Ascend, ALPFA, Catalyst, The Conference Board, MLT, NABA, NCAI, NOD, Out & Equal and Tanenbaum, stand together on our mission to promote inclusion in these unprecedented times. A disproportionate number of Black and Hispanic communities are particularly vulnerable during this health and economic crisis. As a result, we join these organizations in affirming our commitment to promote inclusion, raise awareness, denounce bias and donate to these troubled communities. Read more our commitment here.

    Remote Work and Meeting Guidance

    We have canceled all participation in face-to-face meetings both internally and externally for the foreseeable future and instituted a flexible working policy for roles that can be done remotely, encouraging as many associates who can work from home to do so. We are leveraging the most current global technology, like Zoom, to stay connected and facilitate the continuation of our work, and to continue to bring the full strength of PepsiCo to bring our foods and beverages to communities around the world.

    Travel Guidance

    To help prevent further spread of the virus, all air and long-distance rail travel continue to be limited to operationally essential and/or time-sensitive only and in adherence with any and all local and federal travel policies.

    Crisis and Response Teams

    Crisis management teams are in place at the enterprise level and in each of our Sectors to tailor our response locally. Each team is meeting daily to review and ensure we are following global standards to keep our business running and our employees safe, including protocols for dealing with potential exposure to COVID-19, and we&rsquore continuously re-evaluating and refining our ways of working to best serve the communities we operate in during this challenging time.

    We have also stood up a scientific steering committee with renowned infectious disease doctors to assess our plans and provide input on how we can continue to operate and do our part to keep our employees safe.

    As the scientific and medical guidance continues to evolve, we will continue to adjust our approach and response to ensure the health and safety of our products, associates and their loved ones.

    Responsible Marketing

    As we work faster and more efficiently to get products to consumers and respond to increased food insecurity around the world, we recognize the continued importance of ensuring that we market our products responsibly. During this unprecedented time, PepsiCo continues to abide by all relevant internal policies, including our Global Policy on Responsible Advertising to Children, and all local commitments, laws, and regulations. When communicating any functional benefits associated with our products, we continue to be governed by our Global Standards for Health and Nutrient Claims, which ensure that these claims are verifiable, substantiated and accurate.

    Beef fat fries

    Back in 2001, McDonald's was taken to court to fight a suit of $100 million after conceding that its restaurants had been frying its fries in beef fat. Although this might seem innocuous enough, the fact that McDonald's had done nothing to dissuade the perception that its fries were vegetarian didn't exactly go down well with the public. While the company had insisted only vegetable oil was used in the process, the truth was that beef fat was used at its food production plants before the fries were frozen (though that ingredient was listed as "natural flavoring" in the nutritional information) and then re-fried at each restaurant in vegetable oil.

    McDonald's promptly apologized, leaving itself open to a suit by lawyer Harish Bharti. Various Jewish and Muslim groups followed, since the use of beef fat is neither kosher nor halal. McDonald's ended up paying millions of dollars to the affronted groups — but still uses beef fat to produce its fries in the U.S.

    SMITHVILLE, Mo. — A Missouri community is experiencing trouble in Paradise, quite literally.

    Sixteen minutes outside of Smithville and the only working fire station in the Smithville Area Fire Protection District sits a $1.8 million fire station in Paradise, Missouri.

    The fire station on the east side of Smithville Lake, paid for by voters, was completed 16 months ago. But a sign on the door informs visitors, “Fire Station not staffed. Please call 911 in case of an emergency.”

    “They had no plans on how they were going to get equipment for the fire station, maintain this new station. They don’t have personnel to run this new station, so it’s essentially sitting unused,” Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway said.

    It’s just part of the puzzling management of the Smithville Area Fire Protection District that Galloway uncovered after a former KCFD firefighter moved to town and started asking questions.

    “When I found out about the injustice that was happening to these men as far as lack of equipment, lack of concern for their safety and other areas, that’s when I stepped in,” Charlie Waters said.

    Waters started a petition drive for the audit, but Galloway said getting answers from the fire district’s former chief wasn’t easy. She had to take the unusual step of issuing subpoenas.

    Galloway said she found $1,747 paid to Chief John Callahan for travel expenses for a 2014 Firefighter Rescue International Conference in Dallas. But there’s no record he attended. Current Fire Chief Dave Cline said Callahan made the trip but didn’t attend.

    The audit also uncovered more than $200,000 in bonuses paid out to the chief and firefighters over a 4-year period. But Galloway pointed out bonuses not tied to pre-determined incentives are illegal for public employees in Missouri.

    Additionally, for 4 years, firefighters’ respirators went untested because Callahan said he didn’t know the tests were needed.

    “It’s deeply disappointing that he was not doing a very important part of the job for firefighters yet receiving bonuses on the other hand and at the same time,” Galloway said.

    Callahan was placed on leave last year, then paid nearly $93,000 for the next 6 months until a separation agreement could be reached. His photo is mysteriously absent on the Smithville Area Fire Protection District’s Wall of Past Fire Chiefs.

    An entirely new Fire Protection District Board has been voted in since the audit began, including the man who started the petition drive.

    “I think one person can start the avalanche,” Waters said.

    Waters said the board is working on a plan to put before voters to try to staff the fire station in Paradise and try to improve response times, while they also try to repair a tarnished image.

    “We are on the right path to transparency, and I think it’s 180 degrees from what I witnessed 2 years ago,” Waters said.

    Galloway said she’s turned over the findings of her audit to authorities to determine if any of the payments she calls “illegal” under Missouri’s Constitution could be deemed criminal.

    Hot Pockets heir gets 5 months in prison for college scam

    BOSTON (AP) — An heir to the Hot Pockets fortune was sentenced to five months in prison Tuesday for trying to cheat and bribe her daughters’ way into school as part of a nationwide college admissions scam.

    Michelle Janavs, whose father and uncle invented the microwaveable Hot Pockets turnovers before selling their company, showed no emotion as the judge delivered his sentence after she apologized for abandoning her moral compass and hurting her family and friends.

    “I am so very sorry that I tried to create an unfair advantage for my children,” she said.

    The judge told Janavs that prison time was needed to deter others who might have the gall to use their wealth to break the law and dismissed her argument that her actions were motivated by a love for her children.

    The “vast majority of parents do not brazenly try to push their kids in the side door” of universities through bribery, U.S. District Judge Nathaniel Gorton said. “They don’t love their children any less than you do. They just play by the rules of common decency and fair play.”

    Janavs, of Newport Coast, California, is among nearly two dozen prominent parents who have admitted to participating in the scheme by paying huge sums to people willing to cheat on entrance exams for their children or pretend their kids were star athletes for sports they didn’t play.

    Janavs admitted to paying the consultant at the center of the scheme, Rick Singer, $100,000 to have a proctor correct hertwo daughters’ ACT exam answers. She also agreed to pay $200,000 to have one of her daughters labeled as a fake beach volleyball recruit at the University of Southern California but was arrested before the girl was formally admitted, prosecutors said.

    Assistant U.S. Attorney Kristen Kearney asked for 21 months behind bars, telling the judge that Janavs showed a “flagrant disrespect for right and wrong and an attitude that she is untouchable.”

    “She believed she and her children were deserving of an illicit edge over other students and no one could stop her,” Kearney said.

    Janavs’ lawyers portrayed her in court documents as a dedicated mother and philanthropist who fell for Singer’s “manipulative sales tactics” because of the love for her children and stress of the hypercompetitive college admissions process.

    They argued that the actions were out of character for Janavs, who after working for her father’s company dedicated her life to volunteer work and charities to help underprivileged children.

    “She is a truly good human being. She did an extremely wrong thing here,” Thomas H. Bienert, Jr. told the judge.

    Her family’s company, Chef America, was sold to Nestle in 2002 for more than $2 billion.

    Other parents who have pleaded guilty in the case include “Desperate Housewives” star Felicity Huffman, who was sentenced to two weeks in prison for paying $15,000 to have a proctor correct her daughter’s SAT answers.

    Fifteen other parents — including “Full House” actress Lori Loughlin and her fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli— are fighting the charges. The couple, who are charged with paying $500,000 to get their daughters into USC, could go on trial as early as October.
