Uber has an asshole problem – Vox
A conviction that the rules don't (or shouldn't) apply to you is fine when you're battling a taxi mogul who compares your business to ISIS. But it's extremely unattractive when you start talking about compromising customer user data for the purposes of blackmail. And it's completely insane when that kind of recklessness leads you to talk to journalists about the oppo tactics you're planning to deploy against other journalists.

‘De verkeerde tax-shift: gepensioneerden betalen meer belasting, GDF Suez minder’ – België –
De bakkers, kleermakers, elektriciens, bloementelers, caféhouders, kappers, schoonheidsspecialisten en garagisten die een NV of BVBA hebben opgericht, hebben net zo min als de kleine KMO's het grote eigen vermogen om de notionele interesten te laten spelen.

Maar daar waar hun mastodont-concurrenten slechts 6,7 procent vennootschapsbelasting betalen, betalen zij vaak meer dan 20 procent vennootschapsbelasting, of gewoon de volle pot van 33,99 procent. De fiscale stabiliteit van de regering bevordert de grootste spelers, en dat is ook ten nadele van de zelfstandige middenklasse van ons land.

België derde hoogste vermogensbelasting? Geen sprake van
Tegenstanders van een vermogenswinstbelasting zwaaien met rapporten waaruit moet blijken dat de vermogens in ons land al heel zwaar belast worden. Wie de cijfers even onder de loep neemt, snapt meteen: hier klopt niets van.

How a $47 Shrimp Treadmill Became a $3-Million Political Plaything – The Conversation – Blogs – The Chronicle of Higher Education
It is disingenuous for the Republican-controlled House Committee on Science, Space and Technology to promote the idea that scientists are wasting millions of taxpayer dollars to run shrimp on treadmills based on a 30-second video clip. Given that every teaspoon of seawater can contain millions of bacteria, it does not take a mental giant to understand that the health of marine organisms and the safety of the seafood we eat are closely related.
