  • Government: Accounting exec earned leniency in Madoff case

    Prosecutors say 79-year-old accounting executive earned leniency in Madoff case by cooperating

    NEW YORK (AP) -- A 79-year-old former New York accounting firm executive who did work for some of Bernard Madoff's most important clients has earned leniency at sentencing because his cooperation provided new insights into history's largest financial fraud, prosecutors said.

    In a filing late Thursday in Manhattan federal court, prosecutors wrote Paul Konigsberg provided valuable information by admitting his crimes, including offenses the government didn't know about, and by disclosing facts vital to the investigation of others.

    Konigsberg, scheduled for sentencing Thursday, began formally cooperating after pleading guilty last year to conspiracy and falsifying books and records. But prosecutors said he had spoken to the government about his crimes two years earlier, providing some investigative leads and corroboration of evidence.

    Madoff, 77, is serving a 150-year prison sentence after he revealed in December 2008

  • Defiant PM rejects Grexit fears as he rallies 'No' vote

    Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras got a rock-star welcome at an Athens rally late Friday as he sought to revive support for a "No" vote in a referendum called to bolster his stance in his struggle with international creditors.

    His typically charismatic turn on the stage came as the latest polls suggested that Sunday's plebiscite was too close to call, with his EU nation of 11 million people evenly divided.

    Countering EU leaders' warnings that a "No" could cause Greece to crash out of the eurozone, Tsipras told the crowd of 25,000 cheering supporters: "We are not simply deciding to remain in Europe -- we are deciding to live with dignity in Europe.

    "I call on you to say 'No' to ultimatums and to turn your back on those who would terrorise you," the 40-year-old leader said. "No one can ignore this passion and optimism."

    Just 800 metres (yards) away, separated by police with riot shields, a rival rally of 20,000 "Yes" supporters shouted pro-European slogans and voiced fears of a

  • U.K. Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne is likely to announce plans to raise the threshold for inheritance tax, a key Conservative pledge, in Wednesday’s budget.

    The change will honor a promise made by his Conservative Party ahead of May’s election to bring homes worth up to 1 million pounds ($1.6 million) out of inheritance tax, and will come into effect from April 2017. It will also apply to people who choose to sell their home or buy a smaller home before that date, so more can benefit from the change, according to a Conservative Party official who asked not to be identified in line with British government practice.

    Osborne will on Wednesday deliver his first budget as chancellor in a majority Tory government, buoyed by a recovering economy, and with a weakened Labour opposition giving him more scope to push through Conservative policies. His attempt to raise the inheritance tax threshold in the last government was blocked by his then Liberal Democrat coalition partners.

  • The Secret to Connecting With Your Audience

    All businesses are fundamentally about people. Maybe you don’t see your business that way, but I think you should. Let me explain why.

    A lot of our success as entrepreneurs has to do with our ability to connect with our audiences. Everyone’s audience is different, of course. For many of us, our customers are our most obvious audience. But so are our employees, colleagues and competitors.

    What I’ve learned over the years is that to truly get people behind you, you must open yourself up. You have to be willing to be vulnerable, to get personal. Most people these days are distrustful of big brands and their intentions. They crave realness. They don’t want an impersonal experience. They care more about where their dollars are headed.

    As entrepreneurs, we feel pressured to get it right all of the time. We think we need to emphasize our expertise and our accolades. We put up a front. We don’t want to let anyone know we’ve ever been

  • Mount Airy Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram and Mount Toyota Celebrate First Year in Business

The dealerships aren't new but the ownership transitioned from the Patterson Automotive Group to Scott McCorkle of Charlotte, NC in late May of last year. McCorkle also purchased Granite City Collision in Mount Airy and owns Liberty Buick GMC in Charlotte, NC.

    Mount Airy, NC, July 3, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mount Airy, NC- Last May, Scott McCorkle of Charlotte purchased two car dealerships and Granite City Collision from the Patterson Automotive Group in Mount Airy, North Carolina.

    "We were excited to add to our family of car dealerships and carry on the tradition of great customer service," says McCorkle.

    McCorkle rebranded the Patterson dealerships, naming them Mount Airy Toyota Scion and Mount Airy Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, which reflects his commitment to serving the Surry County area.

  • 'Inside Out' celebrates edge over 'Magic Mike,' 'Terminator'

    'Inside Out' celebrates edge over 'Jurassic,' 'Magic Mike,' malfunctioning 'Terminator'

    LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Even with the flashy competition of Terminators and male strippers, the little feelings inside a young girl's head proved to be more of a draw for moviegoers going into the holiday weekend.

    Disney and Pixar's "Inside Out" earned a chart-topping $7.7 million on Thursday, according to Rentrak estimates. The animated family film has grossed $216.1 million to date and could become the first film since "Argo" to climb to No. 1 during its third weekend in release.

    "Inside Out" had been trailing the gargantuan grosses of "Jurassic World" for two weeks, but might have the edge finally. Universal's record-busting dino film brought in $6.9 million Thursday, bringing its domestic total to $527.2 million.

    New openers "Terminator Genisys" and "Magic Mike XXL" held the third and fourth spots, respectively with $6.5 million and $5.7 million.

    But, this narrow advantage doesn't mean much for

    New York bolsters security for July 4th weekend as thousands of tourists stream into city

    NEW YORK (AP) -- The New York Police Department is stepping up security throughout the city and encouraging vigilance over the July Fourth weekend as thousands of tourists stream into the city for festivities.

    NYPD officials said Friday that they plan to assign 7,000 officers to protect large crowds expected for the annual Macy's fireworks show on the East River and to deploy counterterrorism units to detect any potential threats.

    Along with the army of additional uniformed officers, New Yorkers and tourists could encounter bomb-sniffing dogs and heavily armed counterterrorism teams. Rooftop patrols and NYPD helicopters will keep an eye on the crowd as well.

    Plainclothes officers will be assigned to blend into the crowd. Many officers will be wearing palm-size radiation detectors designed to give off a signal if they detect evidence of a dirty bomb, an explosive intended to spread panic by creating a radioactive
