Shareholders Asked to Vote for Reduced Power for Chairman/CEO of ‘Woke-A-Cola’

National Legal & Policy Center

The annual meeting for The Coca-Cola Company is next Tuesday, April 25, and shareholders will be asked to vote on a proposal that would increase accountability for the company’s Chairman and CEO, James Quincey. National Legal and Policy Center is sponsoring Proposal No. 8 on the company’s proxy statement, which requests the Board of Directors to require the two powerful roles now occupied by Quincey to be split between two individuals. NLPC argues that Quincey has inappropriately engaged the company in multiple divisive political issues that are not in the fiduciary interest of Coca-Cola or its shareholders. As an investor in the company, NLPC has filed a report to the Securities and Exchange Commission that explains its rationale for appointing an equally authoritative counterpart to keep Quincey’s left-leaning political excursions in check. “James Quincey, invoking the name of ‘Coca-Cola,’ has repeatedly weighed in on issues like opposing the Georgia election integrity law and in support of Black Lives Matter, pointing out the alleged racial sins of America,” said Paul Chesser, director of the Corporate Integrity Project for NLPC. “His careless rhetoric only harmed the company’s reputation, since 2022 voter turnout in the Peach State elections was extremely high. Meanwhile, Quincey has highlighted Coca-Cola’s hypocrisy by doing extensive business in China, while saying nothing about the communist government’s genocide and enslavement practices.” In its report to the SEC, NLPC points out several examples of Quincey’s leadership failures, including: entering Coca-Cola in a multi-company effort as co-signer of a letter that opposed plans by the Department of Health and Human Services in 2018 to restore definitions of “sex” to remove the term “identity,” for the purposes of Title IX enforcement of gender discrimination in civil rights law; signing the Company’s name to a 2019 letter in support of the so-called “Equality Act,” which would have added “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to “race, color, religion, sex, or national origin” discrimination protections in the Civil Rights Act of 1964 – which would have squashed almost all other rights and freedoms Americans possess, including speech, association, privacy, and property rights; held mandatory “anti-racist” training in 2021 that instructed employees to try to “be less white,” which included recommendations to “be less oppressive, be less arrogant, be less certain, be less defensive, be less ignorant, be more humble, listen, believe, break with apathy, (and) break with white solidarity;” providing $2.5 million in grants for left-leaning organizations that included $500,000 to the Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, a deeply racist, anti-law enforcement organization that spent millions of dollars in corporate donations to enrich its leaders and their family members, and purchased several multi-million dollar mansions for personal use; engaged Coca-Cola in a multi-company letter-writing campaign to urge a “permanent legislative solution to enable (illegal immigration) ‘Dreamers’ who are currently living, working, and contributing to our communities to continue doing so” – a policy many Americans characterize as “amnesty;” opposed the “Heartbeat Bill” when it passed the Georgia Senate in 2019, signing a letter of objection with other businesses. The bill prohibited abortions once a fetal heartbeat is detected, with exceptions for cases that involve rape, incest, and saving the life of the mother. NLPC’s report to the SEC also notes that since Quincey immersed Coca-Cola in controversial political issues, the company’s stock performance has lagged behind its chief competitors (like PepsiCo), when he should have been focused on his fiduciary priorities. “Coca-Cola, like almost every company that combines the power of chairman and CEO in one person, claims they do so to maximize returns for shareholders,” Chesser said. “But the opposite is usually the case. The board needs a stronger counterpart to put the kibosh on Mr. Quincey’s political activities.” Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.

Risk Ledger survey of 2500+ suppliers reveals key supply chain cyber security weaknesses

Risk Ledger

Attackers are targeting under-resourced suppliers with weaker defences as a way of disrupting or compromising larger organisations. The notable ransomware attack on a supplier to semiconductor giant Applied Materials is expected to lead to $250m in lost sales. With well over 60% of organisations having suffered a data breach through a third party, this regularly results in regulatory fines, huge data recovery costs and loss of consumer trust. Spotlighting the key security weaknesses in the supply chain ecosystem, cyber security business Risk Ledger is publishing its ‘ State of Cyber Security in the Supply Chain 2023 ’ report on Tuesday, 18th April. The report is based on proprietary data from over 2,500 suppliers that have shared information on their risk posture against over 200 cyber security controls with their customers on the Risk Ledger platform. Based on its findings, it draws attention to the 12 most common weaknesses among suppliers and offers practical recommendations by cyber security experts for improving organisations’ third-party risk management strategies. Some of the major findings revealed in this report include: 17% do not enforce multi-factor authentication (MFA) on all remotely accessible services. MFA is the simplest, most effective way to keep hackers out of your online accounts. However, whilst MFA is simple to implement, it does increase friction for the user and is therefore often provided as an optional setting which needs to be intentionally configured. This often leaves MFA disabled and the accounts vulnerable to unauthorised access through password theft. 23% do not use Privileged Access Management controls to securely manage the use of privileged accounts. Highly privileged accounts are the ultimate target for attackers. With high privileges, an attacker will be able to access more sensitive (and more valuable) data, and modify security detection tools to cover their own tracks. 20% do not use a password manager. People are terrible at remembering passwords, which means employees create insecure passwords like qwerty123. This is not their fault! Businesses need to provide a practical alternative. All three of these weaknesses are common causes of cyber security incidents and a high proportion of third, fourth and fifth party suppliers are not using controls to protect themselves or their customers in these areas. The perhaps biggest problem associated with supply chain cyber attacks is the almost total lack of visibility into the prevailing weaknesses among suppliers. There is a wealth of existing data on the tools hackers use to target companies, and on the effects of such attacks, allowing cyber security professionals to put specific defences in place. There has been a total lack of visibility, however, into the main weaknesses in security postures of suppliers that allow these attacks to be successful in the first place. Risk Ledger’s new report gives this unique insight. Risk Ledger’s CEO, Haydn Brooks commented: “Companies rarely run security assurance against more than 10% of their immediate third-party suppliers, while visibility into the risks existing further down the chain remains almost non-existent. To improve this situation, better data and insights into the most prevalent weaknesses in the wider supplier ecosystem are needed, so that remedial efforts can become more focussed. This is the purpose of our report. We want to share the insights we have obtained from suppliers on the Risk Ledger platform with the wider security community, allowing them to use our findings to benchmark their own suppliers against their peers.” Risk Ledger’s “ The State of Cyber Security in the Supply Chain: Data Insights Report 2023 ” will be available for download on Risk Ledger’s website from Tuesday, 18th April. About Risk Ledger Risk Ledger is an award-winning cyber security start-up that was founded in 2018 by Haydn Brooks and Daniel Saul with a mission to shift the way organisations approach cyber security in the supply chain. Built on the idea of a social network, organisations using Risk Ledger can connect with and continuously monitor their suppliers' risk controls, including security, financial and ESG, and work together through the Risk Ledger platform to remediate any risks. Risk Ledger's client base includes organisations like BAE AI, City of London Police, Telenor, Scottish Rail, the UK Health Security Agency, among many others.

Sustainable Startup Iced Tea Brand Ryl™ Tea Announces Morgan Wallen as Investor and Brand Ambassador Ahead of Large-Scale Company Expansion

Full Scope PR

Ryl™ Tea is pleased to announce Country music star Morgan Wallen has signed on as an investor and brand ambassador in the first iced tea brand to align classic southern iced tea taste with healthy, functional attributes of homemade steeped tea. Wallen felt an organic connection to Ryl™ Tea due to the brand’s nostalgic Southern taste profile – giving Wallen a taste of his East Tennessee roots in a can. “I’ve loved sweet tea since I was a kid,” says Wallen. “I remember drinking it out of a pitcher on a hot summer day in my Mamaw Boots’ kitchen. A good iced tea brings back very happy memories for me, so when I found Ryl™ Tea I knew I had something special that I wanted to share.” After learning more about Ryl’s™ health conscious and sustainable mission statement and tasting iterations of the product ahead of its launch in January, Wallen was on board with plans already underway to develop new products in the coming months. Ryl™ is a zero-sugar iced tea product with no artificial ingredients, filled with their proprietary “ polyphenol technology ”, all while delivering the traditional great taste of sweetened iced tea that is usually filled with loads of sugar or artificial ingredients. “When I’m on tour, I train daily so I can bring everything I have to the stage, so finding Ryl™, an iced tea with no sugar and with no artificial ingredients, has been awesome. I can’t wait to do more with them,” Wallen adds, teasing what’s brewing in the future. Ryl™ Tea is available in major grocery chains across the Northeast, including Wegmans, Shoprite and Whole Foods Market. In its first year, the brand is focused on expanding the product in the continental United States, launching nationwide with Sprouts Farmers Market last month and moving quickly to partner with retailers and distributors who are aligned with bringing clean and functional options to legacy categories like iced tea. Consumers can find Ryl™ Tea nationwide in stores and via drinkryl.com. Wallen’s investment joins Ryl™’s founder and seasoned beverage industry executive Blodin Ukella; established food & beverage industry director Leigh Feuerstein; and digital marketing executives of Get Engaged Media Cam Fordham, Alex Dermer and Ben Hiott, who will play a key role in keeping Ryl Tea’s community excited and informed within culture. ABOUT THE RYL COMPANY™: Launched in January 2023, The RYL Company™ is a Gen-Z & Millennial non-alcoholic beverage company focused on offering wellness focused products in traditionally indulgence forward beverage occasions. Their first product line is Ryl Tea, the first iced tea product line to bring together the delicious attributes of iced tea with the health benefits of homemade steeped tea. The Ryl Company produces all of their products in 100% recyclable aluminum packaging and uses no artificial ingredients in their products, making them the perfect items for the growing number of health conscious and environmentally responsible Gen-Z and Millennial consumers.

As He Pretends Anheuser-Busch is an American Company, CEO Brendan Whitworth Fails Leadership Test

National Legal & Policy Center

Anheuser-Busch has finally addressed the controversy that has embroiled the company since April 1 when it centered a Bud Light promotion around transgender “influencer” Dylan Mulvaney. Only problem is, Anheuser-Busch CEO Brendan Whitworth released a statement Friday addressing the issue by not addressing it, accomplishing nothing but to underscore his own helplessness and guaranteeing that the conflagration will continue. Whitworth’s statement asserted that “we never intended to be part of a discussion that divides people.” But nowhere could he even say what the “discussion” is about, as if the topic was too hot to even mention. He doesn’t say it was a mistake for a beer company to promote transgenderism, nor does he defend the ad campaign. It is as if he had to say something if only to quiet his coterie of underlings and PR consultants who were no doubt urging him to say something. He took the faintest stab possible to assuage consumers who might most object to the promotion by saluting “military, first responders, sports fans and hard-working Americans everywhere.” But he could not state the obvious about why all these great people might object to Dylan Mulvaney, namely that men cannot become women, and that it is a folly for anyone, much less a beer company, to advance this lie. Unfortunate for Whitworth, he is handcuffed by the company’s long association with activists who would turn on him as quickly and eagerly as they have accepted his company’s support and money over the years. Anheuser-Busch gets a perfect 100 score on the Human Rights Campaign so-called Corporate Equality Index, and the company promotes gender ideology in its internal training programs. Whitworth fails the leadership test. It’s easy to lay claim to effective institutional management when all the choices are good. Real leadership becomes evident, however, when the choices are bad. But maybe we shouldn’t be so hard on poor Whitworth because his authority as CEO is not what is seems. Whitworth, whose actual title is “CEO North American Zone,” proudly reports that Anheuser-Busch was “founded in America’s heartland more than 165 years ago,” but he does not mention that the company was sold to the multinational InBev in 2008. The company is now known as Anheuser-Busch Inbev SA/NV, and is incorporated and headquartered in Belgium. In addition, CEO Michael Doukeris is a Brazilian citizen. According the company’s website, nine of its 12 directors are appointed by something called “Stichting Anheuser-Busch InBev,” which it describes as “a foundation organised under the laws of the Netherlands, which represents an important part of the interests of the Belgian founding families of the Company and the interests of the Brazilian families previously shareholders of AmBev.” So, Whitworth’s real bosses are a group of ultrarich Europeans and South Americans, who will ultimately act in what they perceive to be their own interests, not those of American beer drinkers. These plutocrats attempt to keep the attention off their wealth by buying off the activists who might challenge it. That is why the company panders to, and bankrolls, a host of woke causes worldwide. Like Unilever, another Europe-based multinational whose American subsidiary Ben & Jerry’s plunged it into controversy (when it ended ice cream sales in the disputed territories of Israel), Anheuser-Busch InBev abets social and political causes that undermine the cultural values and economic interests of the consumers they purport to serve. National Legal and Policy Center (NLPC) sponsors the Corporate Integrity Project. When Anheuser-Busch was still an independent company, NLPC filed a series of shareholder proposals seeking disclosure of its financial support for political and social activist groups.

Leading Psychologist Explains Why Teaching Kids to Manage Stress is Key to Overall Wellbeing

The Chicago School of Professional Psychology

If a child is not sleeping or eating well, irritable or anxious, these could be early signs of mental health challenges ahead. “Teaching children about stress and how to manage the stress response is an important way of developing emotional intelligence, building resilience, and preventing future physical and mental health problems,” said Dr. Michele Nealon, Psy.D., President of The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. “Too many children experience daily stress related to pressures at school, problems with friends, separation or divorce of parents, personal illness or that of a family member, changes in their bodies, difficulty balancing school and extracurricular responsibilities, and more. There are also residual stressors from having lived through a pandemic that we know have had a very serious impact on children’s development. And sadly, too many children live with serious chronic stress as a result of poverty, food insecurity, homelessness and violence,” she added. Dr. Nealon, a clinical psychologist and mother of two, has just written an illustrated book for primary school children, “The Amazing Four’s Very Stressful Day,” in which four friends come together to learn about stress and how to manage it. Available now at Barnes and Noble, Dr. Nealon's book taps into her wealth of knowledge and experience about stress management to give parents and caregivers a tool to help children develop stress management skills. This book is the first in a series to educate adults and children about mental health wellbeing. “Even in young children, prolonged stress can trigger a cycle of emotion-regulation challenges, which can turn into anxiety, depression and behavior problems,” she said. "Parents and caregivers play a crucial part in helping children develop effective coping mechanisms. Through early identification and the creation of a supportive environment, adults can help children develop the skills needed for mental health wellbeing.” Dr. Nealon recommends the following t o help children understand and manage their own emotions and those of others: 1. Identify stress symptoms early. These can include emotional and physical signs such as withdrawing from people, slipping grades, or frequent headaches and stomach aches. 2. Practice coping skills, such as breathing, seeking support from others and positive thinking. These have immediate benefits and can also be used long-term for combat complex issues. 3. Strengthen the parent-child relationship. When parents understand and support their child’s stress management, it can foster trust, build resilience, and instill courage and confidence. “The U.S. Surgeon General and the American Academy of Pediatrics have declared a national child mental health emergency” said Dr. Nealon, “By addressing stress early, we can mitigate circumstances that contribute to this emergency and begin the long, difficult road to turning the mental health crisis around.” # About The Chicago School of Professional Psychology: Integrating theory with hands-on experience, The Chicago School of Professional Psychology provides education rooted in a commitment to innovation, service, and community for thousands of diverse students across the United States and globally. Founded in 1979, the nonprofit, regionally accredited university now features campuses in iconic locations across the country (Chicago, Southern California, Washington, D.C., New Orleans, Dallas) and online. To spark positive change in the world where it matters most, The Chicago School has continued to expand its educational offerings beyond the field of psychology to offer more than 30 degrees and certificates in the professional fields of health services, education, counseling, business, and more. Through its engaged professional model of education, commitment to diversity and inclusion, and an extensive network of domestic and international professional partnerships, The Chicago School’s students receive real-world training opportunities that reflect their future careers.
