Memo to my daughter: “Keep your eye on the ball and hit hard” | PandoDaily
What I love about Abramson’s [...] she’s named it, she’s owned it, but she doesn’t make herself a victim. She knows she lives in a sexist world and that makes her victories– and even her defeats– that much sweeter. This is how we should talk about women in the world. Not stupid debates about having it all. Taking the world as it exists, naming it, shrugging, and continuing to fight. // +++ // "entrenched short-sightedness and sexist cruelty of male-controlled media [...] Yay, thanks for some crumbs of enlightened thinking, for some slightly nuanced improvements in the daily, punishing business of publicly evaluating and then reevaluating women’s worth. [...] 'I don’t fucking care if you like it.' [...] Social Media [frictionless, not thinking twice or setting something aside for a day]. [Women's] life['s and worth's] are up for public evaluation. [To this day.]" +++

FUCK CONTENT ID | Dan Bull's YouTube diss track - YouTube
"Grey Suits without accountability made decisions." >> did every anybody get fired over this? >> if people submit gif - basically its a copyright infringement. ... but nobody makes money off gif or watches movies in gif form. double standard. + + "It's a 90-second clip from it. But that's more than YouTube's database needs to see to know I've taken something I have no right to rebroadcast or republish and put it on their system. It doesn't really matter to me, though, as I'm not selling ads on it. But this is an example of the content match in action: The video's still up, still viewable, I'm not being sued and my channel hasn't been banned."

BBC tells stars to dodge tax: Workers face the ultimatum, go off the books or face the sack | Mail Online
"A corporation source acknowledged that some workers were effectively being forced to comply with the legal tax dodge.

[...] A top celebrity agent said the BBC used the practice to avoid paying national insurance, pension contributions and other benefits due to regular staff. The agent said many presenters ended up paying more tax than if they were on staff contracts."

Not Cool, ... BBC highest paid (incl Paxman) use legal work-around to reduce tax bill and insurance contributions.
While at the same time coming down hard on, arguably more crummy, tax practises like tax havens.

But if I remember well, Newsnight DID report on UCAS CEO who uses as well a services company to reduce tax bill and insurance contributions. As others do as well ...

Simon Johnson: The Federal Reserve and the Libor Scandal -
Bernanke on banking scandals: “I think the real issue is too big to fail,” correct, but the market cannot fix this
This New York Fed memo stands out as a model of clear thinking about the deep governance problems that allowed Libor to become rigged.
At the same time, the timing and content of the memo raises troubling questions regarding the Fed’s own involvement in the Libor scandal – both then and now.

According to the recent order against and settlement with Barclays by the Commodity Futures Trading Commission, the Libor “market” had by 2005 become a hotbed of collusion and price-fixing

Fed is responsible 4 the “safety and soundness” of the financial system in the USA, THEY had to make a decision, either to let them fail (GFC) and thus the economy, the people and the world. LIBOR rigging scandal and TBTF is the aftermath et al

Rede zum Arabischen Frühling Viel Pathos, wenig Pläne
Klare Unterstützung für Reformer im Nahen Osten - aber eine allzu vage Agenda für eine neue US-Außenpolitik: Die arabische Welt wird US-Präsident Barack Obamas Grundsatzrede zur Kenntnis nehmen, Jubel dürfte sie kaum auslösen. Nicht zuletzt wegen der deutlichen Unterstützung für Israel.

Dieser Auftritt war von vornherein ein Risiko. Niemand zwischen Casablanca und Bagdad hatte darauf gewartet, dass Barack Obama eine Grundsatzrede zum Arabischen Frühling hält. Der US-Präsident hat sich trotzdem dafür entschieden - und erläuterte am Donnerstag seine Einschätzungen zu den Umwälzungen in der Region. Obama erklärte, warum diese ein "neues Kapitel" in der Geschichte der amerikanischen Diplomatie nötig machen.
