A new government report reveals that thousands of employees of the Internal Revenue Service got bonuses or time-off awards despite being disciplined for misconduct – including tax compliance problems. How could this happen and what are the criteria for determining awards for government employees? Should they be revised? Plus, Valeant’s acquisitions have had a particular focus: companies that produce “medical aesthetics” products that smooth and clear facial skin – Botox and similar paralyzers, Restylane and similar fillers, and lasers. This care is a fast-growing business, and Valeant now has one sales force to sell all these products. Also, the NYPD's newly created Twitter hashtag #MyNYPD has backfired spectacularly – as New Yorkers have used it to tweet about police brutality and misconduct. Why do organizations/ companies fail to tame Twitter in these instances? And when the public can so easily hijack your hashtag, who's managed to get it right?
