He slipped away to play golf more than 140 times during his time at work.

Use their own professional Colella, know as the package of snacks containing the composition such as aluminum metal and polyester film, so you can form a Faraday cage (Faraday cages), due to the electrical conductivity of the metal, even if a Faraday cage by a lot of current, internal objects by current are slim. In the face of electromagnetic wave, can effectively prevent electromagnetic wave enter. Therefore, GPS satellite signals can also be covered.

Investigators in fwa Bernie Riordan said in his report, think Colella director is looking at Colella PDA into snack bags, "Colella manager knew that he put his PDA snack bags, should also want to know this action will influence on the PDA." His head of Aroona company allow such behavior felt puzzled: I don't understand why Aroona companies allow such action, but this clearly show Mr Colella don't want to be the intention of the track.
