Tax credit cuts - will the House of Lords stop them? - YouTube
what constitutional crisis? democracy. separation of power. checks and balances. getting the voice of the minority heard who have no voice, nobody, no lobby in Westminster to speak and represent them. // 1:44:00 David Cameron and Osborne lied to win a small majority in the general election, withholding the details of further (12bn) welfare cuts in the next parliament if they were (re-)elected. The British public is fed up. Same with LibDems budging on Student Fees post-election and students went on the street in London and elsewhere. & 1:58-59:00 because of that fact, what the gov is asking us to do to waive this through, is unacceptable. & 2:00:00 no taxation without representation & 2:34:00 Poor have to make even more hard choices that Toff can't even imagine to make. & If you don't create middle-class jobs (job creation/industrial policy), you have to top up pay with tax credit for low income. Period. & 2:47:00 proposed amendments were just soft paced cut style. no principles!

Cameron responds to Question Time tax credits complaint | Money | The Guardian
[S]he & her four children were entirely dependent on a combination of working tax credits & child benefits because her business did not make a profit. “I get £400 a week in tax credits, child maintenance from my ex-partner & child benefit. And that’s what I live on. What I make from the business goes straight back into it.” Dorrell, who accused the Tories of telling lies to her and others in a similar situation [...] The House of Commons has approved the cuts to tax credits, with only a handful of Conservatives rebelling against the measures. [...] [The] IFS & the Resolution Foundation say the welfare cuts in Osborne’s summer budget will leave some of Britain’s poorest families up to £1,300 a year out of pocket. Paul Johnson, the director of the IFS, has said it is “arithmetically impossible” for workers not to lose out from the cuts. //&! bit.ly/1jsM5AQ - The ‘work penalty’ will hit the strivers of the country & youtu.be/wrbu6NFazfU & bit.ly/1Pn59NQ & bit.ly/1h98H3X

WhatsApp’s First Half Of 2014 Revenue Was $15M, Net Loss Of $232.5M Was Mostly Issuing Stock | TechCrunch
Overall, Facebook broke down the money it spent on WhatsApp as $2.026 billion for the user base, $448 million for the brand, $288 million for technology, and $21 million for other. That left it to chalk up the $15.314 billion difference as “good will” aka the value “from future growth, from potential monetization opportunities, from strategic advantages provided in the mobile ecosystem from expansion of our mobile messaging offerings.” WhatsApp’s goal is still growth, rather than monetization. Mark Zuckerberg and WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum said when the acquisition was made in February that ads aren’t the right way to earn money on messaging, yet the app wouldn’t be aggressively pushing the $1 a year subscription fees it sometimes charges. Instead, together the CEOs hope to make WhatsApp the top international messaging app first, box out competitors, and then earn money once it’s solidified its position. &[freemium, virtual goods, customisation, virtual gesture store] & see bit.ly/1u5xXkp

Why Are Progressives Great at Morality, Terrible at Messaging? - YouTube
The All New Don't Think of an Elephant!: Know Your Values and Frame the Debate by George Lakoff: tax evasion - tax avoidance = those people are the scum, the benefits of a welfare state ... financing public resources (infrastructure investment) ... private depends on the public!!! if private takes active measures to not bear the fair and reasonable weight they can afford ... than the public, anything that is provided for everyone, can not exist as is. [... you have to understand framing. how to frame x issue ... in terms that it feels/impacts everyone. every rational being seeing the issue at hand ... thus frame it in a moral and fairness / speak to the Gerechtigkeitssinn ... moral ... public resources/utilities give you freedom !!! < welfare state - ie abortion issue, birth control, reproductive rights is also about individual freedom - sex ed is also about freedom, kids making up their own minds, granting them the freedom to think for themselves - and not get their parents view. ]

EU Sends Questionnaire to Rivals Over Facebook Deal With WhatsApp - WSJ
European Union antitrust officials have sent a detailed questionnaire to competitors and customers of Facebook Inc. and message service WhatsApp as they probe the proposed $19 billion acquisition of the latter by the California-based tech giant. EU antitrust officials will try get to the heart of the competitive landscape and understand what separates a social network from a messaging application, according to a questionnaire sent to them, and seen by The Wall Street Journal. Competitors have until Sept. 8 to reply to the questionnaire, which runs to nearly 70 pages and contains in-depth questions on the ease of switching between networks, how easy it is to create new competitors, and how the new social media industry and its apps compete with traditional telecoms services.

As Messaging Wars Escalate, Social App Tango Raises $280 Million | Re/code
The moves essentially signal a new era for global Internet companies — one in which communication between people isn’t restricted to platforms like Facebook and Twitter, or even older messaging services like Gmail or AOL Instant Messenger. Instead, more companies have recognized the power of tapping into users’ existing social communication networks, found within the average person’s mobile device phone book. Apps like Tango, WhatsApp and Viber all comb a user’s mobile contact list to instantly connect people to their network of friends.

Don’t Expect Facebook’s WhatsApp to Make Any Real Money for Years | Re/code
“By being a part of Facebook, it makes it so that [WhatsApp] can focus for the next five years or so purely on connecting more people,” Zuckerberg said. Were Facebook not to have acquired WhatsApp, he continued, the pressure would have increased on WhatsApp CEO Jan Koum to eventually “focus more on revenue models” and monetization over the near term, rather than on the company’s continued growth. [...] “I think by itself, WhatsApp is worth more than $19 billion. It’s hard to make that case today because they have so little revenue, but look at the messaging apps already out there,” Zuckerberg said, pointing to existing competitors like KakaoTalk, WeChat and Line, which are already monetizing (in some cases, quite successfully). [...] 70 percent of those returning to the app on a daily basis. Those levels of engagement are unheard of in Internet circles, and it’s why Zuckerberg and company were so taken by the fast-growing mobile app.
