Sysco Terminates Merger Agreement with US Foods | Fox Business

Sysco Corp. (SYY) said Monday it is walking away from its planned acquisition of US Foods Inc. after a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction against the deal last week.

The deal, announced in December 2013, would have combined the nation’s two largest food distributors, which provide ingredients and a range of other supplies to restaurants, hotels, schools and other food-service operations.

Sysco shares added 1.6% in premarket trading.

Sysco said it will pay US Foods a breakup fee of $300 million. The company also said it will spend another $3 billion buying back shares over the next two years and will redeem $5 billion in merger-related debt.

The Federal Trade Commission filed a lawsuit in February challenging the transaction on antitrust grounds.

Private Jet company is offering flights for only $4 this July 4th

Charter company JetSuite is posting its $4 “SuiteDeals” on Friday, July 3, for travel the next day.

The company is not releasing the destinations or times of the flights before then: Hopeful travelers have to sign up for an email list to receive a notification if JetSuite will be chartering a flight to their desired city.

The company charters four- and six-seater planes, so anyone who manages to snag one of the seriously cheap fares can take their friends along. It’s important to note the flights are only one-way, so return travel is likely to be much more expensive than $4. Regularly priced one-way flights with JetSuite start at $536.

JetSuite, one of a few charter companies trying to the Uber of private jets, ran a similar promotion last year.

This private jet company is offering flights for only $4 this July 4th.

Forget The Cash, This Lottery Ticket Has A 20-Year BACON JACKPOT

An Indiana lottery is really banking on people’s love of bacon. According to Consumerist, the state’s Hoosier Lottery has begun selling bacon-scented scratchers. While lottery scratch-offs that smell like bacon aren’t completely new, Hoosier has added a twist to the prize.

The winner gets a 20-year supply  of bacon.

Customers can buy a $2 card that has the potential to win up to $10,000 and even 20 years of bacon, according to a PDF from the Hoosiers Lottery. Not sure if anyone getting that much bacon will make it another 20 years, but hey, our interests are piqued. What’s great is even if you don’t win anything, you’ll still have a ticket that smells like bacon.

Whole Foods Launches Store for Broke People – Eater

The brand is re-thinking its “Whole Paycheck” image.

Despite its convenience, focus on sustainably-raised and GMO-free foods, and comfortable design, whole swaths of grocery store customers avoid Whole Foods for one reason: its high prices. Late yesterday, the company announced it would appeal to those customers by introducing a new brand of less expensive stores.

In a release, Walter Robb, co-CEO wrote, “[W]e are excited to announce the launch of a new, uniquely-branded store concept unlike anything that currently exists in the marketplace. Offering our industry leading standards at value prices, this new format will feature a modern, streamlined design, innovative technology and a curated selection. It will deliver a convenient, transparent, and values-oriented experience geared toward millennial shoppers, while appealing to anyone looking for high-quality fresh food at great prices.”

Late last year, the Austin-based company began struggling with less-than-stellar sales. To combat the decline, Whole Foods announced that it would begin to offer discount codes. While coupons and discounts are de rigueur in the grocery business, this was the first time in Whole Foods’ 35-year history that it saw the need to offer its customers a deal.

Palm Beach Sheriff Had Hooker, Cocaine Delivered to Private Golf Course Party

The more we are digging into this story, the more bizarre it gets.  The reason could be that it seemingly involves cops, hookers, underage kids and cocaine.  How do all these things come together, you ask?  Because the cops involved are indeed acting as if they are above the law and are not interested in dealing with the consequences of their actions.

To provide a bit of context, the Palm Beach Sheriff Department is the same department which shot a black man for simply riding his bike in 2013.  A PBSO deputy attempted to stop a man for riding his bike. When stopping his cruiser, the deputy shot the man within 4 seconds as the video below shows causing him to be paralyzed.

A series of anonymous posts made on the forum pbsotalk.com have made the claim and mentioned the details about a private golfing event and party where sheriff deputies from the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office ordered at least one hooker to come join them.  According to the posts, Major Van Reeth, who is a deputy himself also brought his underage son to the party.

In addition, according to supposed employees of the golf course and comments made onpbsotalk.com, a pimp delivered the hooker to the party after which both the hooker and the pimp started doing lines of cocaine in the open in front of all the cops present.

The pbsotalk.com forum is a place where deputies can post anonymously about the corruption inside the Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office and a series of very graphic pictures were posted from this golfing event.

Website sheriffbradshaw.com further discussed the bizarre event claiming:

“Cops and Hookers, yeah! Not to mention, Major Van Reeth brought in his underage son (at the time) to join in the good times. Nothing like teaching your child the value of having a skanky prostitute!

The back story from what I heard from the bartender, Gino Defonzo, who took these photos and provided them to us: A pimp brought this prostitute to this private golf event. The pimp and the hooker were doing Cocaine out in the open and the hooker took turns giving “blow jobs” to these cops. I wonder – even the minor? It is unknown if the fellows in the photo were partaking in the Cocaine.”
