Friday’s business headlines

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – Here’s a look at Friday’s business headlines.

McDonald’s

According to McDonald’s data from 2018, more than $34 million in raw products comes from Indiana’s Ag’s industry.

In 2018 alone, the McDonald’s system purchased 221,886,000 pounds of corn, 20,400,000 pounds of soybeans and 4,576,000 gallons of milk in Indiana.

The overall combined product purchases in Indiana also include eggs, flour, pork, soybean oil and sugar.

Capital One

Cybersecurity employees at Capital One tried to warn executives of a pending breach.

The Wall Street Journal says they reported what they saw as staffing issues and other problems to the bank’s internal auditors, HR department and senior executives.

Capital One last month disclosed that a hacker accessed the personal information of about 106 million of its card customers and applicants.

The hack was one of the largest in recent years.

Hacked

More than one in three Americans have been hacked or had their identity stolen.

The One Poll study says also one in four people would be willing to buy back their private information from the black market.

Topping the list of things people value when it comes to personal information are debit card numbers. Americans would part ways with $3,968 to retrieve their stolen debit card numbers.

Online stranger

Forty percent of American children have connected with a stranger online, according to a new survey of fourth through eighth graders.

In the survey, which was conducted by the Center for Cyber Safety and Education in partnership with Booz Allen Hamilton found more than half revealed their phone number to a stranger, one fifth spoke to a stranger over the phone and 11% went as far as to meet a stranger in their own home, the stranger’s home, a park, mall or a restaurant.

How to make Apple Pie Tacos

INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — It’s dessert … in a taco shell!

Apple Pie Tacos are easy, delicious, and kids love them! 

Apple Pie Tacos

9 soft street-taco shells (see note below)
2 tablespoons raw sugar 
1-1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, divided 
5 ROCKIT® apples, skin left on and diced
2 tablespoon raw honey 
1 tablespoon lemon juice 
2 teaspoons cornstarch 
1/4 cup water, plus more
coconut whipped cream 

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. On a plate, sprinkle raw sugar and cinnamon. Gently mix the two together. Spray both sides of the soft taco shells with nonstick cooking spray, then lightly dip both sides in the cinnamon mixture. 
2. Flip a muffin tin over. Place each cinnamon-coated soft taco shell between each of the muffin tins, so that the muffin-tin humps help the taco shell stay in place and formed. Place in the the oven and bake for 10 minutes. Remove and let cool completely. 
3. To make apple filling, combine chopped apples, honey, lemon juice and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small saucepan. Stir cornstarch into the 1/4 cup water and add to the saucepan. Heat on medium for about 10 minutes until apples are completely softened and gooey-thick. You may need to add more water — about another 1/4 cup — as the apples cook to create a sauce-like mixture. 
4. Spoon the apple filling into each of the taco shells. Top with coconut whipped cream and a sprinkle cinnamon, or a little granola.  Enjoy immediately!

Note: A tortilla that’s about 3-4 inches across works great. If you need to, you can take a larger wheat tortilla, and cookie-cut it using a 3-4 inch small bowl.
