Desimone has passed at the age of 44 after being involved in a motorcycle accident on Monday, July 22

Facebook's Menlo Park, California Corporate Chef Josef Desimone was killed in a motorcycle accident.

In tragic food news, the corporate chef at Facebook’s Menlo Park, Calif. Headquarters Josef Desimone, was killed after being involved in a motorcycle accident on Monday, July 22, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Desimone was “a Facebook legend and institution” according to Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook post, adding that he “built our culinary team from a handful of employees in a single cafe into a global team with dozens of world class restaurants.”

Many attested to Desimones joyous character and delicious food. He attended culinary school in Charleston, South Carolina, and before Facebook had worked at Cafe de la Presse. He was also actively involved with Meals on Wheels and Little Kids Rock, according to a Facebook representative via Mercury News. VP of communications and public policy Elliot Schrage said, “He helped shape the culture that exists at Facebook today and built a team (indeed, a company) that will carry on his legacy,” according to Tech Crunch.

Our condolences go out to Desimone’s family, Facebook employees, and all those that knew him.

Each year, there are about 35 times more deaths from motorcycle accidents than car accidents. Although the excitement and potential dangers of riding a motorcycle may seem to be part of the lifestyle, safety. An Ohio woman died after the motorcycle she was riding crashed with a semi truck. Two people were riding on the motorcycle, and both were reportedly ejected from the vehicle when it collided with.

Cracking the Code – Together!

Educators around the country and the world are racing to ‘crack the code’ and find the perfect recipe for reforming their underperforming educational systems. It’s a race against the clock that underpins state economies, global competition, and the viability of entire civilizations. The same is true for the Virgin Islands as policymakers and education stakeholders continue to analyze solutions to improve the Territory’s public school system.

For the past 10 ten years, St. Croix foundation has also sought to crack the code, exploring national models of educational excellence with one overarching mission: to advocate for and support innovative and sustainable strategies that will lead to rapid public education transformation. We have read about and personally witnessed groundbreaking programs both locally and abroad- ones we believe, if replicated with fidelity, could lead to radical improvements in our educational system.

But in order to get there, we have learned that what we do is much less important than the how we do it when building strong systems that best serve the needs of all our community’s youth. In our research, we have also seen that long and short term goals are more often met when reform plans are built on a solid foundation of collaboration—broad-based and community inclusive. For the Foundation, collaboration is really the fundamental “How” to the issue of education reform.

Sadly, collaboration is also the greatest challenge for most education reform efforts as far too many stakeholders haven’t fully mastered the art of working together. Thankfully, there are many models of collaboration for us to examine and model our reform efforts after, some of which we think are particularly noteworthy and could help the VI find solutions:

RACE TO THE TOP:In 2009, Barack Obama and Secretary of Education Arne Duncan launched Race to the Top (RTTT), and radically changed America’s educational reform landscape. As the largest competitive granting program in the history of American public education, RTTT awarded $4.35 billion through the U.S. Department of Education (USDOE) to spur K-12 education reform. While the Territory was not eligible to participate in RTTT (Puerto Rico was), one criteria for applying was that states had to build broad collaboration into their strategies, which meant that major stakeholder groups had to sign off on each state’s reform plan. States that passed the first round of the application process had to submit video presentations demonstrating collaboration and alignment between stakeholders including unions, boards of education, departments of education, political parties, business leaders, charter operators, parent groups, and more.

In the end, Delaware and Tennessee were chosen by the USDOE as the first states to be awarded RTTT grants and there’s little doubt why. Both states took the challenge seriously and set a high standard for radical and rapid reform. We urge local stakeholders to review their RTTT video presentations, which can be found on the St. Croix Foundation’s Facebook page, to see what collaborative reform really looks like. It’s an inspiring demonstration of Leadership and Commitment – one that our education stakeholders can model.

VISION 2015: Delaware’s RTTT plan, “Vision 2015,” resulted in an award of $100 million and is a bold agenda designed to provide a world-class education to all public school students in Delaware. Developed by a coalition of education, government, business and civic leaders throughout Delaware, Vision 2015 established the following goals for the state’s reform agenda: 1. Setting High Standards and Developing a Common Curriculum 2. Developing and Supporting High-Quality Teachers 3. Empowering Principals to Lead their Schools and 4. Establishing a Simple and Equitable Funding System.

L.A. COMPACT: Another reform model is the L.A. Compact, which is a city-wide plan signed by 18 major stakeholder groups in the Los Angeles Unified School District that has become a national model of collaboration and common visioning. The L.A. Compact established the following goals (among others) for its reform efforts 1. Achieve High Quality Teaching and Learning In Classrooms 2. Build Collaborative Leadership Capacity 3. Streamline and Decentralize Operations 4. Expand Innovative Practices that are Working 5. Implement a New Accountability System and 6. Provide Students Multiple Pathways for Workforce/Career Preparation.

Education reform is too big of a task for just one group to tackle. The whole village needs to be a part of the process, recognizing that our children are pouring out of our schools and onto our streets unprepared in the midst of a depressed economy and an unprecedented crime wave. In the words of Rahm Emmanuel (Obama’s former Chief of staff), we would be foolish “to let a good crisis go to waste.” This election season, let’s ask our political candidates how they intend to support collaborative efforts that serve our children and our schools.

This editorial is a part of the Foundation’s Education First series and will be published every Wednesday until election day. For more information, call 773.9898.

Another group of older ex-employees are suing IBM alleging it targeted older workers for layoffs (IBM)

  • Four former IBM employees have sued IBM, hiring a class-action law firm famous for winning big cases.
  • They are alleging that IBM engaged in a 'massive scheme to cover up discriminatory layoff of over 20,000 older workers in knowing violation of disclosure requirements."
  • IBM says it isn't worried about the lawsuit.
  • But the employees' lawyer tells Business Insider that this suit is different in that it is targeting IBM's decision to not disclose the ages of the people it lays off and arbitration agreements requiring employees to waive their right to sue collectively.

Four former IBM employees have sued IBM, and they've hired a class-action law firm famous for winning big cases.

They are alleging that IBM engaged in a "massive scheme to cover up discriminatory layoff of over 20,000 older workers in knowing violation of disclosure requirements."

IBM says it isn't worried about the lawsuit. " The plaintiff's theories have been rejected by courts, including the U.S. Supreme Court. We are confident that our arbitration clauses are legal and appropriate," an IBM spokesperson tells Business Insider.

The fact that IBM has been laying off thousands of workers for years without disclosing the size of its layoffs, while hiring thousands of others, has been well documented. And allegations that many of the people getting pink slips have been its older workers have also been the source of multiple investigations.

Bloomberg wrote about it in 2014, after IBM changed how it discloses layoff information. There are laws requiring companies to share age information about the people it is letting go but IBM stopped doing that in 2014 and instead offers its workers the option of filing individual lawsuits, should they feel they have a case when taking a severance package.

By signing an arbitration agreement, each employee that believes he or she was discriminated against on the basis of age would then have to front the costs of suing IBM for the legal discovery and statistical analysis of its layoffs.

Business Insider wrote about the situation in 2015 and in 2016, when laid off employees told Business Insider that IBM had reduced severance pay for long-time workers to a month max. And Pro Publica delved into allegations of age discrimination during layoffs last year.

One lawyer representing the former employees, Joe Sellers from law firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll, tells Business Insider that IBM's statement is a bit of red herring. Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll is a well-known class-action law firm that's won hundreds of millions of dollars against the likes of Apple, Caterpillar, Citigroup, Mercedes Benz, BP, Bristol-Myers Squibb and many others.

Sellers says that this lawsuit is not attempting to get the court to rule out arbitration agreements. He says his clients are honoring the agreement and have also filed suits with arbitrators.

This lawsuit isn't challenging the arbitration agreements per se. It's challenging the part where employees waived their rights to sue collectively, arguing that IBM did not first give them the information about the ages of the people being laid off, as, he says, is required by law.

"The only issue presented to the court is whether or not to enforce the waiver [to sue collectively]," he said.

And that means this lawsuit is different from the one filed by IBM employees last fall. That age discrimination lawsuit was filed by people who didn't sign a waiver that prevented them from suing collectively in exchange for severance, he said.

Sellers says his clients are those that did sign those waivers. He's trying to represent an estimated 20,000 people who also did. He believes that his case will allow these IBM workers to sue the company in court and not be liable for having to return their severance checks.

"Our position is that the waivers that people signed — some people only got a month's payment, others got more than a month’s payment — are unenforceable. So individuals can keep whatever they got paid and join this lawsuit," he says.

Ultimately, between the suit filed in arbitration and the one filed in court, this lawsuit seeks damages for what its plaintiffs say were age-discrimination practices.

"I did my job very well and received glowing remarks on my annual evaluations for 33 years,” said one of the plaintiffs, Cheryl Witmer, in the law firm's press release. Witmer says she was laid off in 2016 at age 57. “Suddenly in my 34th year, I was unfairly downgraded in my annual evaluation. Nothing about my work changed what changed is that IBM decided to replace me with a much younger worker."

Sellers tells Business Insider that, through the lawsuit, he ultimately wants to stop IBM from "relying on stereotypes about older workers to force people out of work. There were, undoubtedly, some older people who may be better suited to other jobs. But there are lots of people in the workforce who are older, with a good deal of technical expertise at a company that values technical expertise, who should have been evaluated on their merits."

50 women are suing Salesforce, accusing it of selling software to an online sex marketplace that pleaded guilty to human trafficking (CRM)

  • 50 women who say they were sexually abused as victims of a sex marketplace called Backpage are suing Salesforce.
  • They allege that the San Francisco software company, known for its actions on civil rights, helped Backpage run its business by providing software and consulting services.

Fifty women who say they were sexually abused as victims of a sex marketplace called Backpage are suing the software company that they say helped Backpage run its business: Salesforce.

The women allege that the San Francisco software company — known for its support of women's rights and other social issues — helped Backpage run its business by providing software and consulting services, as was first reported by CNBC's Sara Salinas.

Backspace became notorious in the spring of 2018 when the website, known for its sex ads that included offering women and children, pleaded guilty to human-trafficking charges in Texas. The site was also facing federal charges and charges in other states. In April 2018, US authorities seized the site's assets and shut it down.

The lawsuit alleges that Salesforce, while publicly decrying human trafficking and touting how it was helping to stop it, was also providing software and services to help Backspace grow its business.

Salesforce didn't just provide Backpage with a customer-ready version of its data and marketing tools. Salesforce designed and implemented a heavily customized enterprise database tailored for Backpage's operations, both locally and internationally. With Salesforce's guidance, Backpage was able to use Salesforce's tools to market to new 'users' — that is pimps, johns and traffickers — on three continents.

The suit also charges that Salesforce took on Backpage as a customer in December 2013, and it included a picture of an alleged invoice from Salesforce to Backpage for 2016 through 2018.

A Salesforce spokesperson told Business Insider that the company doesn't comment on pending litigation, but added: "We are deeply committed to the ethical and humane use of our products and take these allegations seriously."

This isn't the first time Salesforce has faced repercussions because of its clients.

Last year, protests erupted over Salesforce's contracts with the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agency after the public outcry over how it was performing family separations at the border. Employees protested and demanded that the company cancel the contract with the agency. A nonprofit group that provides legal services to immigrants rejected the company's $250,0o0 donation. But the company says its software is not involved in family separations.

Salesforce is a particularly interesting target for such a suit because the company has made itself a champion of human-rights causes, such as women's rights and fair pay and LGBTQ civil rights, and it backs a new tax of tech companies in San Francisco that raises money to combat homelessness.

Earlier this year, the company also appointed a chief ethics officer and started an organization in the company, called the Office of Ethical and Humane Use, to develop policies and strategies to ensure technology is used in humane ways.

Here's the full copy of the suit:

Though not strictly a miracle, the Shroud of Turin is one of the most famous relics in history. The shroud is allegedly the burial shroud of Jesus and contains an imprint of his face. Subsequent research has revealed that at least parts of the relic date to Medieval times, suggesting it was an elaborate hoax. However, follow-up research found the shroud could be much older — dating to between 280 B.C. to A.D. 220 — well within Jesus’s lifespan.

Education and Technology Are Improving Motorcycle Safety

Facebook is mourning the death of its longtime popular corporate chef, Josef Desimone, who was killed on July 22, 2013 in a motorcycle accident. The accident has left Facebook executives and employees in mourning because the dynamic chef had been with the company since 2008 and helped define the culture of the company. While motorcycles can be fun and exhilarating, they can also be very dangerous, as this accident illustrates. Fortunately, education, proper training and advanced technology are stepping up to the plate to make motorcycle riding safer.

While more people are riding motorcycles today than ever before, only about 50 percent of riders have ever completed a formal training course. While many of these “untrained” riders may have been on the road for many years, they can still benefit from formal training. The training courses cover everything from wearing proper safety equipment to making potentially lifesaving maneuvers. Regardless of your expertise with motorcycles, if you haven’t taken advantage of these courses, it’s in your best interests to do so.

Apart from formal education, technology can help save riders’ lives. Many new cars come equipped with features like blind spot detection systems that can help drivers be more aware of motorcyclists who are difficult to see on the road. Also, newer motorcycles are coming equipped with antilock brakes that help improve safety. But one of the most advanced features that appears to be right around the corner for cars and motorcycles is technology that will allow cars and motorcycles to communicate with each other and with traffic signals. This would allow for motorcycles to “see” around buildings and over hills, alerting riders of what lies ahead. These advancements in technology are aimed at protecting riders and drivers and at minimizing avoidable accidents.

Regardless of your abilities on a motorcycle, better education and technology can help keep you safe. However, motorcycle accidents do and will continue to occur.

A chance meeting

Tutein and Boyd first met then-Facebook executive chef Josef Desimone last April on their home turf. Desimone visited St. Croix alongside fellow Facebook culinary colleagues Dean Spinks and Tony Castellucci to serve as a judge for A Taste of St. Croix, an island wide-cooking competition included in the week-long St. Croix Food and Wine Experience, a community fundraiser.

As part of the trip, the Facebook chefs spent time working with CTEC, a local vocational high school with a budding culinary program. It was there that Desimone met Boyd, 20, and Tutein, 21, culinary students taking the class as part of CTEC's adult education program.

Denika Boyd (L) and Aaron Tutein finished their two-week culinary internship at Facebook last week. The two chefs live in St. Croix, an island district of the U.S. Virgin Islands in the Caribbean.

CTEC students helped Desimone and his team plan and cook an end-of-week barbecue for the festival. When all stomachs were full, Desimone promised Boyd and Tutein, who has caught his eye as promising cooks, that he'd find a way to get them to Facebook. Contact info was exchanged, and Desimone left behind two very eager Facebook hopefuls when he returned to California at the end of the week.

Three months later, on a Monday morning in mid-July, Desimone was killed in a motorcycle accident.

In addition to the heartbreak it caused for his colleagues, Desimone's sudden death also put the internships he had promised Boyd and Tutein in limbo. It wasn't long afterward that Spinks, Castellucci, and Desimone's brother Billy, who was also in St. Croix for the festival, decided to fulfill their friend's promise.

"When I got the phone call, I dropped my phone," laughs Boyd. "When I heard the words 'internship at Facebook,' I just dropped my phone. I went crazy. I said 'yes, yes, yes' to everything. I didn't even give him a chance to talk."

Boyd and Tutein were headed to Silicon Valley to work at the world's largest social network.

Key Mark Zuckerberg posts vanish from Facebook

Many of founder Mark Zuckerberg's old posts have vanished from Facebook, and won't be restored.

Some were a record of key moments in the company's history.

Their absence was first noted by Business Insider, which was told by the social network that the posts were "deleted due to technical errors".

Facebook will not try to retrieve them because the process would be too complicated and not guaranteed to work, the company said in a statement. While Facebook backs up data, it has changed its archive system along the way.


The company could not say how many of Zuckerberg's posts had been deleted.

Business Insider says important details about core events in Facebook's history are now "obscured".

It says it's hard to make a full accounting of the vanished posts, but we know many existed because they were quoted, in part, in media at the time.

One of Zuckerberg's now-absent posts was written in April 2012 as Facebook acquired Instagram for US$1 billion.

"It was an important document in the history of Facebook, particularly given Zuckerberg promised that 'we're committed to building and growing Instagram independently' – a commitment he has since walked back," Business Insider says.

Another deleted post involved the death of Facebook's "beloved" head chef Josef Desimone in a motorcycle crash in July 2013.

10 Apocalypse soon?

In 1981 in the small town of Medjugorje in what is now Bosnia-Herzegovina, six children reported seeing apparitions of the Virgin Mary. For years they claimed to receive daily messages and so far have allegedly received thousands of prophecies.

“One is a prediction that there are 10 secrets that will reveal the end of the world,” said Michael O’Neill, who runs the website

Though the Vatican has never officially weighed in, the site has attracted millions of pilgrims over the years. In 2010, the Vatican agreed to investigate this event and should have its findings out in the next few months, O’Neill said.

In April 2012, Facebook acquired Instagram – a now-pivotal moment in the growth of the Menlo Park, California technology giant. Multiple news reports from the time quoted from a public post that Zuckerberg made on his timeline about the acquisition – but that post now inaccessible.

The links to that post from old news articles no longer work, and it’s nowhere to be seen on his profile.

It was an important document in the history of Facebook, particularly given Zuckerberg promised that “we’re committed to building and growing Instagram independently” – a commitment he has since walked back. Facebook is now integrating the photo-sharing app into itself ever-more closely, and tensions around this contributed to the departure of Instagram’s two cofounders in September 2018. (A copy of Zuckerbrerg’s post has also been preserved in Facebook’s Newsroom blog.)

The most drastic deletions involved entire years. Throughout both 2006 and 2009, Zuckerberg was regularly active on the social network – but there are no posts visible of any kind for the two full years in between. The spokesperson confirmed that all the posts during 2007 and 2008 were deleted.

Another, specific example from later on: Facebook’s beloved head chef Josef Desimone died in a motorcycle crash in July 2013. TechCrunch reported at the time that Zuckerberg shared the news in a post on Facebook. However, that post is now inaccessible as well.

Facebook would go on to throw a party in Desimone’s memory at its headquarters the following month. Hundreds of people were invited, and booze flowed freely – and it subsequently descended into chaos. As Business Insider previously reported, multiple fights broke out among attendees, which security staff believed were gang-related.

Numerous other posts by Zuckerberg from these time periods remain publicly available.
