Weight Watchers helps the hungry as members lose

Weight Watchers has launched Lose for Good, a campaign to empower people to get healthier while also giving back to those in need.

For every pound lost by Weight Watchers members in St. Petersburg, Weight Watchers will donate the cost of 1 pound of food — up to $1-million. The six-week campaign kicked off Sept. 7 and ends Oct. 18. The proceeds will go to Share Our Strength, which works to make sure no child in America grows up hungry, and Action Against Hunger, which helps feed people in troubled parts of the world.

In St. Petersburg, the food collected will be donated to St. Vincent de Paul.

Visit www.loseforgood.com. To find the nearest Weight Watchers meeting location, call toll-free, 1-800-651-6000.

  4. Hackers hide cyberattacks in social media posts

    Business

    SAN FRANCISCO — It took only one attempt for Russian hackers to make their way into the computer of a Pentagon official. But the attack didn't come through an email or a file buried within a seemingly innocuous document.

    Jay Kaplan and Mark Kuhr, former NSA employees and co-founders of Synack, a cybersecurity company, in their office in Palo Alto, Calif., in 2013. While last year's hacking of senior Democratic Party officials raised awareness of the damage caused if just a handful of employees click on the wrong emails, few people realize that a message on Twitter or Facebook could give an attacker similar access to their system.
