Helping People, and the Planet: Nordstrom Partners With Operation Warm

MORE THAN A COAT: This year, Nordstrom employees join a list of other retail partners, such as Abercrombie & Fitch Co., Hollister Co. and TJX Cos. Inc. in volunteering their time in partnership with Operation Warm to provide coats to children in need — and also help the planet.
Marking 20 years in helping the unfortunate, Operation Warm is on track to achieve three million coats distributed with the aid of corporate partnerships and the corporate employee volunteer program, which is in its third year. Other avenues of assistance come directly through community groups, firefighters and schools for where the help is most needed.
Through its inaugural partnership with Nordstrom, “the green guardian” coat gives back. Each coat is designed and manufactured by Operation Warm and made out of 32 recycled plastic bottles.
Mutually excited in their partnership, Nordstrom and Operation Warm believe the mission is in line with company core values as well as demonstrated need.
As the holidays warrant a pleasure in giving, “This holiday season, Nordstrom is excited to be partnering with Operation Warm to outfit 1,500 children in New York City with new winter coats,” said Chris Wanlass, vice president and general manager of Nordstrom Manhattan.
Similarly, Dick Sanford, chief executive

Operation Valuable Fiend

Operation Valuable Fiend

In 1949, a newly minted branch of the CIA (the precursor of today’s National Clandestine Service), flush with money and burning with determination to roll back the Iron Curtain, embarked on the first paramilitary operation in the history of the agency. They hatched an elaborate plan, coordinated with the British Secret Intelligence Service, to foment popular rebellion and detach Albania, the weakest of the Soviet satellites in Europe, from Moscow’s orbit. The operation resulted in dismal failure and was shut down by 1954.In Operation Valuable Fiend, Albert Lulushi gives the first full accounting of this CIA action, based on hundreds of declassified documents, memoirs, and recollections of key participants, including Albanian exiles recruited for missions and their Communist opponents. Up till now, the story of the operation has been obfuscated and even distorted. Some blamed the Soviet mole Kim Philby for sabotaging it; the communists credited the prowess of their secret police; and CIA memoirs were heavily sanitized. Lulushi documents a range of factors that led to the failure, from inexperienced CIA case officers outsmarted in spy-vs-spy games by their ruthless Stalinist opponents; to rivalries between branches of the CIA and between the agency and friendly intelligence services; and conflicts among anti-Communist factions that included Albania’s colorful exiled leader, King Zog. The book also shows how this operation served as the proving ground for techniques used in later CIA Cold War paramilitary actions-involving some of the same agency operatives-including the coup d’états in Iran and Guatemala and the Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba.
