BOGUS RAY-BANS SEIZED: Luxottica Group this week cheered a ruling by the United Arab Emirates’ Consumer Protection Center ordering the destruction of 143,700 pairs of counterfeit Ray-Ban sunglasses. The sunglasses were found during a raid of a China Optical Center distributor, which was also fined $4,000. The distributor could be closed for up to six months if it is caught selling fakes again. “Counterfeit activity greatly damages not only manufacturers and distributors of original products, but also trademark owners while also misleading and deceiving clients and consumers,” said Luxottica.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
