    3. Lululemon's Mystery Board Member Resigns

      Interesting article in Fortune on the resignation of Lululemon board member Rhoda Pitcher:  Fortune article.  Lululemon could have helped itself out by being much more up-front when questions arose in June regarding the credentials of Pitcher.  At the time, the company said that she was a valued member because her “considerable knowledge of our business gained from more than 10 years as a director of Lululemon makes her well suited to provide advice with respect to our strategic plans, culture and marketing programs.”

    4. National Amusements -- The Time for Settlement Is Now

      I actually thought that nothing could surprise me any longer in the ongoing debacle involving Sumner Redstone, National Amusements and Viacom.  That was, until, I saw the headline in yesterday's Los Angeles Times -- "Redstone Family Blasts Dauman After Viacom Profit Tumbles 27%".  The theater of absurdity which continues to play out in this matter in both public and in the courtroom has now reached an unprecedented level for such a major corporation. The Redstone family is now placing the blame on Viacom's poor performance in the 3rd quarter on its CEO, Philippe Dauman.  I guess it has nothing ...

      "Phishing Attacks Have Become Highly Sophisticated" by BoardProspects Member, Scott Goldman

      It’s hard to imagine that it’s come to this already. As if phishing attacks aren’t bad enough we’ve all been exposed to “spearphishing” attacks – which add a level of information that makes them more likely to get their victims to click on the link bait. Now we’ve got a highly sophisticated, very personalized and downright frightening form of phishing never seen before.

    15. See what I have to say about Yahoo's deal with Starboard in USA Today's article

      The bids that Yahoo received "probably weren’t what they were hoping for," he said. "So now they realized we don’t have an option here and we can't keep fighting Jeff Smith. We have to do a deal with him because we don’t know what the options are."
