Ethical lapse
On an Oct. 23 KQED broadcast of  "This Week in Northern California," Professor of Management Sally Baack discussed recent ethical lapses in Bay Area companies. Baack said the key to ensuring ethical business practices is transparency to employees, the public and shareholders. "We want to see risk taking, innovation and creativity of the right type," Baack said. "The question is how do you get that right without crossing the line? I think it really comes down to transparency."

Taser no-brainer
In an Oct. 21 KCBS radio story, Professor of Criminal Justice Studies Michael Musheno commented on an announcement by the maker of Taser stun guns advising police to not shoot suspects in the chest. Musheno said the advice should not have come as news to the company or law enforcement agencies. "This is the first time that I've seen any evidence of them reporting what they themselves have known from an accumulation of information from all around the country," Musheno said.
