Of those respondents, 44% admitted that surfing for deals hinders their on-the-job productivity. In a separate survey, 77% of technology leaders said their firm allows “workshopping,” but more than half (52%) prefer employees abstain from the activity. Security risks (59%) and loss of productivity (34%) were cited as the top “workshopping” concerns among tech managers.

Twelve inmates died after a shooting broke out at a Panama Prison.
Police reported that, luckily, “The Pop-Tart did not strike the victim.” During an argument Sunday evening, a Florida Man threw a Pop-Tart at his wife’s head, according to cops who say that while the toaster pastry missed its target, the victim was struck in the arm by her spouse’s follow-through motion. According to investigators, 36-year-old Brandon Sutherland and his wife were quarreling in their St. Petersburg residence when, according to the victim, Sutherland “became upset and intentionally threw a Pop-Tart at her head.” While the Pop-Tart did not strike the 29-year-old woman, she was hit on the arm by Sutherland’s left hand. A sheriff’s deputy reported observing a red mark on the woman’s arm. During police questioning, Sutherland reportedly confessed to throwing the Pop-Tart, and that he “grazed the victim’s right arm with his left hand.” A deputy noted that he “observed the broken Pop-Tart on the floor of the residence.” Sutherland was arrested for domestic battery, a misdemeanor, and booked into the county jail. He was released from custody late Monday afternoon. A judge has ordered Sutherland to have no contact with the victim. Sutherland was arrested last March for allegedly battering the same woman.
