#Cleantech and #Climate Change #Podcast interview with Graciela Chichilnisky, Co-author of REVERSING CLIMATE CHANGE, @Fridays4future

A Quest for a Carbon Revolution



Point Roberts WA, Delta BC, November 1, 2019 – Investorideas.com, a global news source and leading investor resource issues a special edition of its Cleantech and Climate Change podcast, talking to well-known thought leaders and management of publicly traded about today's problems and solutions for the future.

Today’s podcast features an exclusive interview with renowned economist Graciela Chichilnisky, co-author of the forthcoming book REVERSING CLIMATE CHANGE (World Scientific Publishing, December 2019).

Chichilnisky also talks about her company, Global Thermostat and its “direct air capture" technology that removes CO2 from the atmosphere; how it works and its current status. This technology could potentially play a role in a carbon revolution. Chichilnisky believes economics and climate change need to go hand-in-hand.

CO2 removed from the air will not only potentially reverse climate change but can become the main feedstock of economic growth, replacing petroleum.

A fair global economic playing field and a reversal of climate change; now that is a revolution!

India rikkaim mees sai e-residendiks

 Cache   
India suurima turuväärtusega ettevõtte Reliance’i juht Mukesh Ambani sai täna Eesti e-residentsuse staatuse. E-residendina on tal võimalik asutada ettevõtteid Eestisse ning hõlpsamini meie äridesse investeerida. E-residentsus anti suurettevõtjale valitsuse otsusega ettevõtlus- ja infotehnoloogiaminister Urve Palo poolt täna Mumbais. Mukesh Ambani märkis kohtumisel Paloga, et Eesti on suutnud teha lühikese aja jooksul imetlusväärseid edusamme. „Me soovime õppida Eesti kogemusest e-riikluse arendamisel, et muuta India tavainimeste elu mugavamaks ja paremaks,“ ütles ta. „Olen veendunud, et Eesti e-valitsemise lahendused on lihtsasti skaleeritavad kasutuselevõtuks India valitsuses. Me tahame alustada väga tihedat koostööd Eesti helgemate peadega, et need muutused juba lähitulevikus ellu viia,“ rõhutas Ambani oma koostööhuvi tõsidust. „Indias ei leidu inimest, kes ei teaks Mukesh Ambanit ning teda võib oma mõju poolest maailmamajandusele võrrelda Bill Gatesiga. Mul on hea meel, et eestlaste jõupingutused on vilja kandnud ning oleme teinud oma parima, et tuua India ettevõtjate investeeringuid Eestisse,“ ütles ettevõtlus- ja infotehnoloogiaminister Urve Palo. „India ettevõtjad on rohkem eesti ja euroopa poole vaatamas. E-residentsuse andmine India suurimale tööstus- ja tehnoloogiakontserni asutajale ja omanikule Ambanile on Eesti riigile äärmisel kasulik,“ ütles kohtumisel viibinud ja ka ise viimasel ajal tihedalt Indias tegutsev Taavi Kotka. Mukesh Ambani kuulub maailma kahekümne rikkaima inimese hulka ning tema ettevõte Reliance, tegev peamiselt energia- ja keemiatööstuses, on India suurima turuväärtusega firma. Samuti kuulub Ambanile maailma suurim nafta rafineerimistehas. Ambani sõnul panustavad tema ettevõtted kokku 8% India riigieelarvest. India majanduse tšempioni järgmine plaan on siseneda telekommunikatsioonisektorisse.

Disfruté viendo el documental de Netflix, y ya no repetiré la muy antigua broma que se decía sobre Gates: -Bill Gates es el Anticristo. Por el contrario, me confirmó lo que es una obviedad muy bien sepultada bajo metros cúbicos de envidia: es una persona digna de admiración, por su trayectoria, por haber sabido pilotar los cambios de una vida hacia la excelencia. Cuando el amo le pida cuentas sobre qué hizo con los talentos dirá: mira. Inteligencia, capacidad, y sobre todo una tendencia a la risa y a la carcajada en la que probablemente descansa el resto de sus cualidades. Un gigante, que para colmo se encontró con Melissa.

Buenassss - A mí, Bill Gates me cae de la patada. Porque no me gustan ni el Excel, ni el Explorer, ni el Windows, y porque mi chico el genio, estuvo trabajando en Microsoft, en Seattle , y no me gustó nada la estructura piramidal de aquello, que se comprende en otro tipo de empresa, pero no en un sitio con tal cantidad de genios geek por metro cuadrado. Y a esos genios geek, hay que dejarles cuerda larga , que si tienen por encima a un burócrata empeñado en seguir y hacer seguir a todos por el camino marcado, no me vale. Y conste que mi chico se marchó de la empresa porque se dió cuenta de que su padre no iba a aguantar otro viajecito de 36 horas de Madrid a Seattle para ir a verle, y se volvió a Europa con una pinza en la nariz. En cambio Jobs y Wozzniak nunca me han dejado tirada. Y llevo con Mac, desde hace ni se sabe. Y Jobs no iba de salvar al mundo, que lo que más le importaba era la buena letra. - En cuanto a los libros ; Cuando salgo de casa, además de mi bolso de los de los antiguos carteros, que me hace una amiga guarnicionera, y que pesa un quintal, no sólo por el cuero de vaca del que está hecho, sino por el manojo de llaves, los tres pares de gafas, el móvil, la agenda, la chequera, la cartera , las gotas para los ojos y para la nariz, la lima de uñas, el monedero, los distintos bolígrafos y rotuladores, los pañuelos, las pastillas contra la tos, un metro extensible, y varios etcéteras, Todo eso aparte , pues, voy siempre cargada, con una talega con asas largas, de tela de tapizar hecha por mí, también en bandolera. Y dentro, además de las carpetas con lo que tenga pendiente para ese día ( escrituras, contratos, presupuestos, facturas... ) llevo siempre un libro. Procuro llevar uno que no pese mucho, y que se pueda leer a poquitos, mientras me hacen esperar en el notario, en la Junta Municipal, en Hacienda, en el Registro , en todas partes. Con un libro , las esperas , que odio, se hacen mucho más soportables. Sobre todo desde que me he hecho con un bastón, y me dejan sentarme en todas partes ( en algunos organismos oficiales, incluso me han llegado a sacar sillas de las de sus cubículos para que no estuviese de pié). Lo de llevar más de un libro , eso es más bien para los jóvenes .

(Where we vow to never grope your pecs from behind.)

     Donnie Dumbo wants to pull firefighting funding from California. Then again, this is a fucking moron who thinks that windmills cause cancer.

     I just sent a nice long email to the right wing shyster who wrote this, in which he claimed that Omar was wrong in quoting Trump as saying Neonazis are "very fine people." He most certainly did and I made sure to let this clown know that and a lot more. I'll post the results later in a full post. This fucking guy's unreal.

     "Aiming to win back public confidence in the Boeing 737 MAX, major US airliners are reportedly planning to hold demonstration flights with senior company officials, but not real passengers, on board to prove the model is safe. "
      I bet they'll be buying a shitload of life insurance.

      Since I move exclusively in adult circles, I have to say I haven't seen behavior like this on a daily basis since grade school.

      #somuchwinning #somuchborrowing

      Another Trump scam. Shocking, I know. Or maybe, no one wants to eat with him.

      The trouble with this, besides the obvious, is that you can't drag a pig into the mud when it's already in it. Trump is already up to his bizarre comb over in the mire. He is to sleaze what Bill Gates is to software. Seriously, Trump threatening to launch a smear campaign against Vindman, a Jewish officer, is like the Dreyfus Affair 2.0. And, speaking of whom...

       That's right. Some right winger called up CSPAN and compared Lt. Col. Vindman to the Nazi propagandist. This is what happens when you get 100% of your news from Trump's Twitter feed.

        Jay Sekulow's already vowed they would fight this all the way to the Supreme Court. The right wingers on the court will probably rule forcing Trump to turn over his tax returns would amount to a violation of his 4th Amendment rights or some silly shit like that.

        California? Fuck 'em. They're Commie pinkos out to hurt America! Russia First!

        Kurt Suzuki will never live down this moment as long as he lives, not with his wife, his kids, grandkids or the nursing home orderlies.

        At this point, I look at Never Trumper Republicans like useful idiots and, yes, I count George Will in that number. People such as Will are acting shocked as if Trump is the first bad Republican "president" to come down the pike. These fireflies of clarity that occasionally go off in Will's brain, as well as other idiots such as Rick Wilson, Steve Schmidt and George Conway also gave Bush full-throated praise even as he stole the presidency twice and got us into two wars in which we're STILL engaged, bankrupting the Treasury and borrowing trillions from the Chinese to pay off those and his ruinous tax cuts. They each stood by and did nothing even as we tortured human beings for useless information. So, no, I will not listen to these right wingers as if they're the new voices of moral clarity. We got war criminals like Bush in the White House because of their right wing snuffling about how evil Socialism and liberalism is. Fuck 'em all. So, please, keep doing damage to Donnie Dumbo's "presidential" legacy. The next time a more moderate Republican gets in the WH, they'll sneak back into the party and start preaching the usual right wing orthodoxy. You just wait and see. Then remember what I said here in 2019.

       Remember when Nixon called Walter Cronkite before deciding to fire Archibald Cox? Yeah, me neither.
       But this is how clueless our government is.The morons running Foggy Bottom are so stupid, they're leaving personnel decisions with grave geopolitical implications to Sean Hannity, a guy who once ran a failed dating site.

       This is the REAL Richard Spenser when he's not getting free air time from CNN. This is one of the assholes Trump calls "very fine people."

       Hey, if Donnie Dumbo wants to bankrupt someone else besides the American taxpayer for his sporting outings, it might as well be the RNC.

        Meme intermission.

     Among the many disturbing revelations in the full testimonies and depositions of Marie Yovanoviych and Michael McKinley that were released by the House Intelligence Committee today was Marie Yovanovitch fearing for her life if she didn't get out of Ukraine as a colleague warned her to do. Another was Gordon Sondland telling her to "get big or get out" and to go on Twitter and support the "president."

       Speaking of which, for anyone that cares to read them in full, here are the links to the released testimonies of Michael McKinley and Masha Yovanovitch.

        It's Tuesday afternoon so have lunch with Volbeat, some of the best Dad rock on the planet.

       When you don't have the guts to break the law, go the Rand Paul route and demand others do it for you.

        Make ISIS Great Again.

       "Went there, bitch."

      This is how toxic the Republican brand is: They're so ashamed of running as Republicans, they try to deceive voters into thinking they're Democrats.

     More right wing rat-fuckery. Note these Republican scumbags aren't defending Trump so they resort to sophomoric horseshit like this to slow the impeachment process.

      If Trump isn't a good racist, it isn't for lack of relentless trying.

      Wouldn't it be something if South Carolina, of all states, had two black senators?

      I always hate seeing those lying right wing losers at Project Veritas made artificially relevant but this hot mic moment that O'Keefe caught shows another major tv network actively suppressing a sex scandal story. NBC did the same thing with Ronan Farrow and his story about Harvey Weinstein. And it appears Amy Robach ran into stiff resistance from ABC brass in getting her interview with Virginia Roberts about Jeffrey Epstein on the air. By way of mollifying her, they're doing a six part podcast next year that virtually no one will watch, over six months after Epstein's death. And the MSM wonder why they're no longer trusted. And finally...

      Now you know why the Tory scumbags want to privatize the NHS. Imagine how much these leeches would rake in for executive bonuses if THAT were to happen.

Bill Gates addressed his multiple meetings with Jeffrey Epstein: 'I made a mistake in judgment'

 Cache   

Bill Gates, Jeffrey Epstein

  • Bill Gates addressed his ties to Jeffrey Epstein on Wednesday, saying that he "made a mistake in judgement" by associating with the convicted sex offender.
  • It was the first time Gates has spoken publicly on his relationship to Epstein since a New York Times report last month revealed that the Microsoft cofounder met with Epstein multiple times despite his past.
  • Gates said he thought affiliating with Epstein would encourage the financier to commit money to global health initiatives, but that the money never materialized.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

Bill Gates apologized on Wednesday for his association with financier Jeffrey Epstein, making his first public statements since news surfaced that he had met with Epstein, a convicted sex offender, more often than previously believed.

"I made a mistake in judgment in thinking those discussions would go to global health ... that money never appeared," Gates said during a panel discussion hosted by The New York Times Dealbook series.

"And I gave him benefit of my association," Gates said.

The Microsoft cofounder has maintained that he believed meeting with Epstein would lead to investments in charities supported by Gates, who along with his wife, runs one of the world's largest philanthropic organizations, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Gates had previously waffled on his association with Epstein. In September, he distanced himself from Epstein, telling The Wall Street Journal that he "didn't have any business relationship or friendship with him."

But a New York Times investigation published in October found that Gates met with Epstein multiple times after Epstein's conviction in 2011, including at least three meetings at Epstein's Manhattan townhouse. Following the publication of that story, a spokesperson for Gates said he regretted the association, but Gates himself hadn't publicly addressed it until Wednesday afternoon. 

Gates isn't the only tech mogul with ties to Epstein — Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos and Tesla CEO Elon Musk each met with Epstein at least once, years after after Epstein was convicted.

Comparing Forbes' lists of America's richest people from 1982 and 2019 shows how differently wealth is tracked today

 Cache   

forbes 400 1982 vs 2019

  • For 37 years, Forbes has released an annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans.
  • Business Insider obtained a partial copy of the first Forbes 400 list published in 1982. Comparing it with the 2019 version shows key differences in how wealth was tracked and described then versus today.
  • On the 1982 list, the richest Americans' fortunes are described using vague wording like "probably exceeds $1 billion" and "above $2 billion."
  • Today, the numbers are much more precise — e.g. Jeff Bezos is worth $114 billion and Bill Gates is worth $106 billion.
  • The 1982 ranking was not numbered, but organized into categories like "$500 million and up," while today the individuals are clearly ranked No. 1 (Bezos), No. 2 (Gates), etc.
  • Unlike on the 1982 list, billionaires in 2019 were also ranked by their philanthropy score, based on how much they give to charity. 
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

For 37 years, Forbes has released an annual ranking of the 400 richest Americans.

Today, the Forbes 400 is topped by people like Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffett, and represents hundreds of billions of dollars.

Business Insider obtained a partial copy of the first Forbes 400 list published in 1982. Comparing it with the 2019 version revealed several stark differences in how wealth was tracked and described then versus today.

The most obvious difference is the sheer quantity of wealth depicted on the Forbes 400 lists. The top five richest Americans today — Bezos, Gates, Buffett, Mark Zuckerberg, and Larry Ellison — are worth a collective $435.4 billion — more than 2% of America's GDP.

The top five richest Americans in 1982 had a combined fortune of roughly $11 billion. But the differences don't end there.

The Forbes 400 in 2019 gives a precise ranking of American billionaires and includes a 'philanthropy score'

In the 2019 list, the billionaires are organized by net worth in a numbered ranking. Other data points include each billionaire's age, home state, source of wealth, and whether or not the individual is an impact investor.

Each person also gets a philanthropy score on a scale of one to five, measuring how much they give to charity. 

The richest person on the list is Jeff Bezos, with an estimated net worth of $114 billion and a philanthropy score of two.

Forbes 400 2019

If you click on a person's name on the online version of the list, a box drops down with more details about the source of the person's wealth. Bezos, for example, has two bullet points:

  • "Jeff Bezos founded e-commerce colossus Amazon in 1994 out of his garage in Seattle. He remains CEO and owns a nearly 12% stake.
  • He divorced his wife MacKenzie in July 2019 after 25 years of marriage and transferred one quarter of his Amazon stake to her."

You can then click "See Full Profile" for a more in-depth description of each individual's life and fortune. 

The original Forbes 400 in 1982 was not explicitly ranked, used vague wording, and represented much less wealth

The original Forbes 400 published in 1982 looks quite different from today's.

For one, the richest person on the Forbes 400 in 1982 wouldn't even make the list today. The richest American in 1982 was Daniel Keith Ludwig with an estimated $2 billion net worth. In 2019, the minimum net worth to make the list was $2.1 billion.

Similar to today's bullet points, each individual got a short blurb noting their age, location, source of wealth, and in some cases, tidbits such as "in continual pain 50 years from back injury" and "principal hobby: sailing."

Forbes 400 1982

But in stark contrast to today's list, the richest Americans' fortunes in 1982 were described using vague wording like "probably exceeds $1 billion" and "above $2 billion." In 2019, those numbers are much more precise — e.g. Bezos is worth $114 billion and Gates is worth $106 billion — although they are still estimates. 

And unlike the 2019 list with its clear, numbered ranking, the 1982 richest Americans weren't numerically ranked.

"They were still ordered by net worth, there just wasn't a numbered ranking explicit on the pages," Christina Vega, Forbes' director of communications, told Business Insider. "They were also further divided into various sections, like '$1 billion and up,' '$500 million and up.'"

Vega told Business Insider that while the Forbes 400 methodology has evolved and improved over the years, "net worth numbers are all still estimates." 

While the Forbes 400 lists have evolved since 1982, two names have consistently appeared on the rich list since the very beginning: Philip Anschutz and William Herbert Hunt.

In 1982, Anschutz was ranked the seventh-richest American with an estimated net worth of "over $1 billion," made in industries including oil, railroads, telecom, real estate, and entertainment. Hunt was ranked the 10th-richest with a net worth "in excess of $1 billion," derived from the oil industry.

Today is Alexa's birthday: She's five. But everyone only wants to talk about how much money her dad spent in Seattle's election. Rude.

Tim Eyman is a sub for lawsuits: And lucky him, more are coming.

Bill Taylor, the top U.S. diplomat in Ukraine, told impeachment investigators there was direct quid pro quo: He made the statement during private testimony last month, but his words became public today. Taylor said Rudy Giuliani was the "originator" of the quid pro quo plan. Giuliani tweeted that this new testimony was "a frame-up and hoax." Read the full transcript here.

After the first round of ballot drops, infamous KIRO Radio host Dori Monson had "mixed feelings" about Sawant seemingly losing: "As you know, very few people have generated the kinds of soundbites that fuel a talk show host like Kshama Sawant. It was fun listening to her screeching for the past six years. And now her reign could be coming to an end in Seattle," he joked. Reminds me of something Rich Smith wrote:

If these Republicans were good at politics, they would be pumping as much money as possible into Sawant's campaign. Republicans have been blaming Sawant for problems in Spokane since she first took office, and now they're just going to let her go? Who will they use to scare away centrists in Kirkland if she loses? Who are they going to use as an excuse not to catch up to California and Oregon on statewide rent control legislation? Oh wait, that's not the Republicans. That's Sen. Jamie Pedersen, D-Seattle.

Speaking of ballot drops: Here are today's returns. Many races won't be settled until at least Friday. Counting votes takes time, people!


A good amount of Seattle votes have yet to be counted: So hold onto your butts.

Bill Gates suggests Warren isn't "open-minded": because she probably wouldn't "be willing to sit down with somebody who has large amounts of money." He made the comments today at the New York Times DealBook conference. He also said he made a "mistake in judgement" by meeting Jeffrey Epstein and disagrees "with people who think a corporation should sit there and do fact-checking against that thing," in reference to political advertising on Facebook. He also said "Jeff [Bezos] likes artificial planets." LOL.

Op! A clapback:

Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper never dated: They're actors. Breaking news.

Trouble in the Twitter kingdom: Two former Twitter employees have been charged by the Justice Department for "exploiting their access to the company’s internal systems to help Saudi Arabia," writes the New York Times. This is the "first time federal prosecutors have publicly accused the kingdom of running agents in the United States," writes the Washington Post.

Jeff Sessions is expected to run for the Alabama Senate: I'm sure the KKK is thrilled.

Rep. Ayanna Pressley endorses Elizabeth Warren: which is expected, because they're both from the same state, Massachusetts. Other members of "the Squad," AOC and Ilhan Omar, have backed Bernie.

T.I., the rapper of "Whatever You Like" and actor best known for starring in ATL, checks his daughter's hymen on the reg: Well, a gynecologist does, but that gynecologist reports back to T.I., which is... something else. He said in a podcast interview that aired yesterday that he makes sure his daughter's hymen is in tact... yikes. What about butt stuff? The passage:

"Not only have we had the conversation — we have yearly trips to the gynecologist to check her hymen," T.I. said. "Yes, I go with her."

He then mentioned that after her 16th birthday party, he "put a sticky note on the door: 'Gyno. Tomorrow. 9:30.'"

Qual é a cor do cabelo das executivas bem-sucedidas?

Uma executiva compartilhou um artigo curioso comigo. O texto falava que, apesar de apenas 2% da população ser naturalmente loiro, metade das presidentes femininas das grandes empresas e a maioria das mulheres nos altos escalões da política são loiras.

“Você acha que devo tingir meu cabelo para virar loira também?”, ela me perguntou.

Eu pensei que ela estava brincando: uma mulher mulata, bonita, autoconfiante, com ótimas credenciais e muito sucesso profissional, não iria gastar seu tempo com algo tão trivial.

Obviamente o problema não era a cor do cabelo.

Ela confessou que, na verdade, estava nervosa a respeito de sua participação futura em um vídeo corporativo. Por não ser loira como “aquelas mulheres bonitas e bem-sucedidas,” como ela seria percebida pelos funcionários da empresa?

“Veja o exemplo da Michelle Obama. Quais são as caraterísticas mais atraentes dela? Seu cabelo? A cor da pele? A sua roupa?", disse a ela.

“A atitude, a personalidade, a auto-confiança e a inteligência”, respondeu a executiva. Ela entendeu o que eu queria dizer.

Essa interação me fez refletir sobre a importância da representatividade e as dificuldades sociológicas enfrentadas pelas pessoas que nunca veem alguém como elas nos cargos de liderança.

Sendo uma mulher branca (e loira), nunca pensaria em algo como a cor de cabelo como um símbolo de pertencimento a um grupo de sucesso. Entretanto, como uma mulher, estou extremamente ciente da escassez de modelos variados de sucesso.

Faça um experimento intelectual e escreva “líder de sucesso” no Google. Na maioria dos resultados, aparece uma imagem de homem branco com terno e gravata.

Quando é preciso citar um líder inovador, sempre aparecem os mesmos nomes: Jeff Bezos, Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg etc. Recentemente ressurgiu o nome de Elizabeth Holmes (mais uma loira), da Theranos, mas num contexto de empreendedora que se perdeu e cometeu fraude.

Temos uma visão extremamente estereotipada sobre as características que tornam uma pessoa um bom executivo ou executiva, e continuamos perpetuar o mito do gênio abusivo como um modelo certo de liderança. Temos que mudar isso aí.

Bill Gates afirma que sin la demanda antimonopolio a Microsoft estaríamos usando Windows Mobile en vez de Android

Bill Gates afirma que sin la demanda antimonopolio a Microsoft estaríamos usando Windows Mobile en vez de Android

Han pasado muchos años desde que el Departamento de Justicia de Estados Unidos investigara y demandara a Microsoft por prácticas antimonopolio, siendo la causa central el hecho de que Internet Explorer llegara preinstalado como único navegador de Windows. En concreto, van 18 años, y Bill Gates sigue pensando que los efectos que tuvo sobre la empresa que fundó fueron devastadores en algunos ámbitos.

En el reciente documental que lanzó Netflix sobre su vida en Microsoft y fuera, se ve cómo la parte del caso antimonopolio sigue sin hacerle sentir cómodo, y se achaca a sí mismo haber sido ingenuo en aquella época. Ayer, mientras hablaba en una conferencia organizada por The New York Times, afirmó que sin la demanda antimonopolio a Microsoft estaríamos usando Windows Mobile en vez de Android. Y como veremos a continuación, no culpa tanto a las obligaciones que Microsoft tuvo que aceptar como resultado del juicio, sino a la distracción que éste le provocó.

"No hay duda de que la demanda antimonopolio fue mala para Microsoft, y habríamos estado más centrados en crear el sistema operativo móvil, así que en lugar de usar Android hoy en día, estaríais usando Windows Mobile", afirmó Gates. "Si no hubiera sido por el caso antimonopolio... estábamos tan cerca, yo estaba demasiado distraído. Lo arruiné por la distracción."

El mayor error de su vida fue permitir que Android ganara a Windows en smartphones

Windows Phone

Durante el verano, Bill Gates hizo otras declaraciones en este sentido, afirmando que su mayor error fue permitir que Android fuese lo que es hoy, pues se trata de una posición que según él debió ocupar Microsoft. Y como ahora, se echó cierta culpa: "la mala gestión que llevé a cabo y que causó que Microsoft no sea lo que es Android".

De hecho, Gates llegó incluso a decir que "400.000 millones de dólares se habrían transferido de Google a Microsoft". Volviendo al caso de ayer, Gates añadió que "llegaron tres meses tarde con un lanzamiento que Motorola habría usado en un teléfono, por lo que sí, es un "el ganador se lo lleva todo". El antiguo CEO no hace referencia a una época concreta, pero probablemente se refiera a la época pre-Android, cuando Motorola era aún muy potente.

No sabemos qué pudo ocurrir dentro de Microsoft aquellos años. Lo que sí sabemos es que Windows Phone llegó muy tarde una vez se había anunciado el iPhone, al que Ballmer despreció, y Android.

El caso contra Microsoft pudo dar un frenazo a su progreso, pero Microsoft tuvo años para reponerse que nunca aprovechó con el ritmo que se le presupone a una de las empresas más grandes del mundo. Incluso llegando tarde Windows Phone, Windows Mobile tampoco aprovechó nunca su posición de dominio en smartphones ni se comercializó como un sistema operativo hegemónico más allá de los negocios, al estilo de la primera BlackBerry.

Además, si hubiera buscado una masificación, Microsoft podría haber dado pasos que su dirección nunca acometió a tiempo. Por ejemplo, permitir mayor compatibilidad con hardware, como por ejemplo, procesadores de Mediatek que impulsaran a la gama baja. Y, sobre todo, reducir el coste de las licencias por cada terminal vendido con Windows Phone preinstalado, algo que Google siempre puso muy fácil con Android, tanto en variantes que no usaban sus aplicaciones, por ser libre, y donde sí.

Неожиданные откровения Билла Гейтса. Так вот почему сейчас все используют Android вместо Windows Mobile

 Cache   

На конференции DealBook издания The New York Times основатель Microsoft Билл Гейтс (Bill Gates) рассказал о своём видении того, как компания проиграла на поприще мобильных операционных систем. 

Билл Гейтс винит во всём антимонопольное разбирательство, которое оттянуло на себя ресурсы руководства. Он заявил, буквально следующее:

Нет никаких сомнений, что антимонопольное разбирательство плохо сказалось на Microsoft. Мы бы тогда больше обращали внимания на создание мобильной операционной системы и тогда бы вы сейчас использовали Windows Mobile вместо Android». 

Он отметил, что из-за разбирательства был слишком отвлечён и «провалил» мобильное направление из-за этого. Также Гейтс рассказал, как Microsoft упустила возможность запустить Windows Mobile на ключевом продукте Motorola.  Компания опоздала всего на три месяца с релизом ОС, а победитель в итоге «получил всё». Не совсем понятно, на какой продукт Motorola здесь ссылается Гейтс, но Motorola выпустила серию смартфонов Droid десять лет назад. 

Теперь же Microsoft окончательно признала поражение, собирается выпустить смартфон на Android и предлагает пользователям Windows 10 Mobile переходить на iOS и Android.

The wealth tax has become the subject of fierce debate as progressive Democratic candidates in the 2020 election champion it as a mechanism to redistribute riches. They also see it as a way to curb the economic power of the wealthiest Americans. Sen. Elizabeth Warren first proposed it and Sen. Bernie Sanders later followed.

Warren is pushing for a 2% tax on households with net worths above $50 million, and tripled to 6% on fortunes over $1 billion. Sanders went farther with a more aggressive plan: He wants to levy a 2% wealth tax on households with net worths over $32 million and gradually increase it to 8% on those over $1 billion.

Though it's a relatively new proposal in the US, many European nations had already adopted it decades before. 

The wealth tax is similar to a property tax. But instead of taxing real estate, it covers wealth in all forms: stocks, cash, jewelry, yachts, a Pablo Picasso painting — really any asset that could be appraised a monetary value.

Back in 1990, around a dozen European countries had a wealth tax, according to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development. Today, only four European countries have it: Spain, Norway, Switzerland, and Belgium. 

Most European governments eliminated the tax because it was problematic in design and enforcement, and France was the latest to scrap it in 2017. They often hit people with plenty of assets but little cash on hand to pay the taxman.

"They can be really difficult to administer and ensure even a moderate compliance rate," Daniel Bunn, the director of Global Projects at the nonpartisan Tax Foundation, told Business Insider.

He added that it became difficult for governments to justify the high administrative cost of enforcement as the rich were able to move assets and capital out of the country into lower-taxed jurisdictions, often within Europe.

Instead, Bunn said, European countries did away with it and doubled down on enforcing income taxes among others.

All together, European wealth taxes generally brought in around 0.2% of GDP in revenues, a study from the Cato Institute noted.

Still, four European governments are relying on wealth taxes to generate revenue. Here's how its working out for them.

Spain has a wealth tax levied on fortunes above €700,000, or just over $774,000, starting at a 0.2% rate.

Spain first introduced a wealth tax (otherwise known as Patrimonio) in 1977, two years after the death of its authoritarian leader Francisco Franco. 

It kept the tax until 2008 when the global financial crisis threw the Spanish economy into a tailspin. The tax was temporarily reinstated three years later in 2011 to boost public finances, but the national government later decided to make it permanent again. 

Spain now taxes fortunes above €700,000 at 0.2%, which gradually increases to 2.5% on net worth above €10.7 million depending on the region. People living in the Spanish capital of Madrid are exempt from the tax.

Its never been a substantial generator of tax money for the Spanish government. Data from the OECD shows that a net wealth tax on individuals made up 0.55 percent of all tax revenues in 2017.



Norway collects a wealth tax both at the municipal and the national level, starting at 1.48 million krone, or $174,000.

Norway's wealth tax was first introduced in 1892. The central government levies a tax rate of 0.15% while municipalities impose a 0.7% rate, bringing the maximum to 0.85%.

Only wealth above 1.48 million krona, or roughly $174,000, is taxed. That figure is doubled for married couples.

A 2012 study from Norwegian researchers reported that average wealth per household totaled 1.6 million krona, or just over $166,000, indicating that most of the population paid some form of the tax.

The amount of revenue generated has largely been the same over the last two decades. The OECD reported the wealth tax constituted 1.1% of all wealth tax revenues in Norway in 2017.



Switzerland first implemented its wealth tax in 1840. The rate varies by canton, or state, as the central government does not collect the tax.

Athanasios Gioumpasis/Getty Images

Switzerland first levied a wealth tax in 1840 and its been a pillar of their tax structure since. They're self-reported and paid annually, with no institutional tracking of wealth. Tax authorities can only access personal bank information if a person is suspected of a crime.

The country has a decentralized tax system, and the rate varies around its 26 cantons. But it ranges between 0.3% and 1% of taxpayers' net worth. They tend to be highest in the French-speaking regions of the west and lower in the German-speaking cantons of central Switzerland.

The tax-free threshold for a married couple without children is between 50,000 Swiss francs ($50,370) to 250,000 Swiss francs ($251,856). "The wealth tax thus affects much of the middle class in addition to the wealthiest families," one study on the Swiss wealth tax found.

Compared to the other three European countries, the Swiss wealth tax has generated consistent revenue so far in the 21st century and it brought the largest share. OECD data shows that wealth taxes made up 3.6% of all Swiss tax revenue in 2017, and it's been above 3% since 2000.

People have toyed with the idea of a 4-day workweek for over 80 years. Here's how the concept has evolved, from the Great Depression to Microsoft's latest successful experiment (MSFT)

 Cache   

open officeGetty Images

  • Microsoft recently implemented a four-day workweek at a subsidiary in Japan, leading to a 40% productivity increase.
  • A four-day workweek can either mean that employees work a traditional 40 hour week over four days, or that they work four typical eight-hour days totalling 32 hours per week.
  • A 30 hour workweek was popular in the early 20th century, but support dropped off following the Great Depression. Now, some companies are experimenting with the idea again.
  • Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories.

A 40-hour, five-day workweek from Monday to Friday has been considered the standard schedule in the US since at least the Great Depression, even though almost a third of US workers today don't work that way.

Throughout the 20th century, scholars and activists predicted a decrease in hours the average worker would be on the clock as productivity increased. In 1928, economist John Maynard Keynes predicted a 15-hour workweek within a century. In 1965, a Senate subcommittee predicted an even shorter 14-hour workweek by 2000, with seven weeks of vacation.

Some high-profile tech executives, like Google cofounder Larry Page, have praised the premise of a four-day workweek, and studies have shown that it could have benefits like decreasing burnout and lessening gender inequality.

However, a four-day workweek has yet to take hold on a large scale.  

Microsoft is the most recent example of a company experimenting with the idea. The Seattle-based tech giant recently implemented a four-day workweek in Japan, which led to a 40% jump in productivity. The company closed the office on Fridays in August and limited meetings, which made employees more productive than the previous August, despite working fewer hours.

Here's a history of how the four-day workweek began.

In the 1920s and 1930s, entrepreneurs like Henry Ford found that decreasing workweeks from 60-plus hours to 40 could actually increase productivity, according to Wharton professor Adam Grant.

In 1933, Congress nearly passed a 30-hour workweek bill to cut hours as an alternative to unemployment during the Depression, but it failed as opponents called it "communist."

Other New Deal legislation was a way to keep 30-hour workweek activists happy, like the Works Progress Administration, and the Federal Labor Standards Act, which mandated overtime pay past 40 hours.

10 things in tech you need to know today

 Cache   

Mark Zuckerberg at Georgetown University

Good morning! This is the tech news you need to know this Thursday.

  1. Thousands of explosive internal Facebook documents were published online in full. Facebook has fought vigorously against the release of the documents, arguing that they presented an unbalanced picture of the company.
  2. California's attorney general revealed he's investigating Facebook, and says it's not complying with subpoenas. California has been quietly investigating Facebook over privacy issues and its business model for more than a year.
  3. Facebook admitted to another data leak, saying that up to 100 developers accessed people's data from Groups. In April 2018 Facebook implemented new rules restricting the amount of personal data third parties could access following the Cambridge Analytica scandal, but some apps seem to have been unaffected by the new rules.
  4. Federal prosecutors charged two former Twitter employees with spying on behalf of Saudi Arabia. The criminal complaint unsealed Wednesday alleges that the former employees snooped on the accounts of people who were critical of Saudi Arabia.
  5. Alphabet's board has launched a probe into the company's handling of sexual misconduct charges, including those made against its top attorney. David Drummond, Alphabet's chief legal officer, had an affair and a child with a subordinate and is accused of having other affairs with women in his department.
  6. Bill Gates addressed his multiple meetings with Jeffrey Epstein, saying he "I made a mistake in judgment." Gates said he thought affiliating with Epstein would encourage the financier to commit money to global health initiatives, but that the money never materialized.
  7. Airbnb is rolling out major safety changes following five deaths at a Halloween party last week. Airbnb will now verify all listings and have a 24/7 help line available, among other changes.
  8. China's biggest ridehailing company Didi will bar female passengers from using its carpooling service after 8 p.m. after two women were murdered. The curfew is part of its relaunch of Hitch, a carpooling app which Didi suspended after the murder of a female passenger in August 2018.
  9. China will ban gamers under 18 from playing video games after 10 p.m. in order to curb a growing online addiction. Underage gamers will also be restricted to 90 minutes of gameplay on weekdays according to China's General Administration of Press and Publication.
  10. Airbnb lost a high-stakes vote in Jersey City that will put increased restrictions on short-term rentals. This was a major defeat for Airbnb, which spent more than $4 million campaigning against the increased regulation ahead of the vote and its upcoming IPO.

SUA: Candidata democrată Elizabeth Warren promite că Bill Gates nu va plăti impozite de 100 de miliarde

 Cache   
În timp ce miliardarul Bill Gates pare să fie îngrijorat de impozitele pe care le-ar putea plăti dacă Elizabeth Warren, unul dintre candidaţii cu cele mai mari şanse în alegerile primare democrate din SUA, ar veni la putere, aceasta i-a promis că impozitul nu va fi de 100 de miliarde de dolari, informează joi AFP. Elizabeth Warren a făcut dintr-o taxă asupra averilor foarte mari una dintre ideile centrale ale campaniei sale, iar cofondatorul companiei Microsoft s-a întrebat în timpul unei conferinţe, miercuri, cu privire la suma pe care el va trebui să o plătească statului dacă Warren va fi aleasă preşedinte în 2020. "Am plătit mai mult de 10 miliarde de dolari impozite, am plătit mai multe impozite ca oricine", a spus omul de afaceri care îşi dispută cu fondatorul Amazon, Jeff Bezos, şi cu familia lui Bernard Arnault, proprietarul LVMH, primul loc din topul celor mai bogaţi oameni din lume. "Dacă va trebui să plătesc 20 de miliarde, de acord. Însă dacă îmi spuneţi că trebuie să plătesc 100 de miliarde de dolari? Atunci încep să mă întreb cât îmi va rămâne", a adăugat Gates. "Contorul" în timp real al magazinului Forbes îl afişa pe Bill Gates pe locul 2 în topul celor mai mari averi mondiale, cu 107 de miliarde de dolari, joi, la orele 15:00 GMT, loc pe care Gates îl dispută cu Arnault. Punând la îndoială faptul că Elizabeth Warren ar fi un om "cu spiritul deschis", Bill Gates s-a întrebat de asemenea dacă aceasta "ar fi de acord să stea să discute cu cineva care are mulţi bani". "Sunt în continuare încântată să mă întâlnesc cu oameni, chiar şi atunci când ei au opinii diferite", a replicat rapid senatoarea pe Twitter. ''@BillGates, dacă avem ocazia, mi-ar plăcea foarte tare să vă explic cum veţi plăti impozite cu taxa mea asupra marilor averi (promit că nu este vorba de 100 de miliarde de dolari)", a adăugat ea. Dată cu şanse mari în sondaje, Elizabeth Warren şi-a construit reputaţia combătând excesele din finanţe. Ea propune în programul său mai multe măsuri ce îngrijorează mediile de afaceri, printre care majorarea impozitelor percepute societăţilor şi celor bogaţi, destructurarea giganţilor din domeniul tehnologiilor sau o reglementare întărită în numeroase sectoare.

MTN To Charge N4 For USSD Bank Transactions From October 21

 Cache   
Hello guys, It very on fair what these our telecommunications are doing imagine this, charging fee for using ussd card for bank transactions.
Chief Executive Officers (CEOs) of commercial banks have distanced themselves from the moves by MTN Nigeria to impose charges on Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) transactions.

The bank chief executives under the aegis of Body of Bank CEOs that have the MD/CEO of Access Bank Plc, Mr Herbert Wigwe, as chairman, said in a statement yesterday that they never asked MTN to start charging customers as contained in the text message sent by the telecommunication company.

Their disavowal came a day after the federal government ordered MTN to suspend the introduction of service charge on USSD transactions, which was billed to take off yesterday.

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele, had on Sunday also directed commercial banks and other financial institutions under its regulation to shun the moves to impose charges on USSD services.

Providing further clarification of the service charge, the banks CEOs said the decision on whether, and what amount, to charge a customer for accessing USSD was entirely that of the telco company, in the same way, a customer is billed for calls, SMS and data.

MTN, in a notice to its customers last week, had stated: “Please note that from October 21, we will charge N4 per 20 seconds for USSD access to banking services. Thank you.”

USSD is a Global System for Mobile (GSM) communication technology that is used to send text between a mobile phone and an application programme in the network.

The bank CEOs said: “We wish to state as follows: That the banks did not ask MTN to start charging customers as contained in the text message. The decision on whether, and what amount, to charge a customer for accessing USSD is entirely that of the telco company, in the same way, a customer is billed for calls, SMS and data.”

According to the CEOs, MTN remains the only telco that is yet to implement end-user billing, “which is the standard practice for customer-initiated transactions.”

This, they said, was despite the fact that the banks, working with the CBN had engaged MTN for more than one year to try and bring down the cost of USSD to aid financial inclusion.

“That the banks are determined to pursue the National Financial Inclusion Strategy of the Federal Government of Nigeria and will continue to advocate that telcos identify wholeheartedly with this laudable initiative and implement transparent and low pricing model in the use of USSD access codes.

“We wish to reiterate that financial transaction charges are regulated by the CBN as stipulated in the Bankers’ Tariff, and that the charges for financial transactions carried out with banks remain unchanged,” the statement added.

But in a swift response, a top official of MTN, who spoke off the record, told THISDAY that the telecoms company did not need the approval of banks to implement the USSD charge because the USSD code platform belongs to MTN and is operated by the company to provide financial transaction services to bank customers.

“Banks still charge N50 per transaction, yet the banks do not own the USSD platform that enables the transaction, and no regulator is seeing anything wrong in it,” he added.

Responding to the allegation that MTN is the only telco that is yet to implement end-user billing, which is the standard practice for customer-initiated transfer, he said MTN did not want to join other telcos in the implementation process since it comes with extra cost on the subscriber.

“The telcos that have implemented it are doing so with additional charges on the subscriber,” he stated.

Emefiele, while warning the banks on Sunday not to allow charges on USSD transactions, had expressed the central bank’s commitment to deepening financial inclusion.

“I had made my commitments to Bill Gates Foundation as well as Queen Maxima that we would deepen financial inclusion and that by 2020 the rate of financial inclusion would have accelerated to about 80 per cent.

“At this time, we are close to about 65 per cent. We moved from about 42 per cent to 65 per cent in about 18 months and we believe that we can achieve this 80 per cent if everybody, that is the bank and telecoms company, cooperate with us.

“The banks are the people who give these businesses to the telecoms companies and I leave the banks and the telecoms companies to engage.

“And I have told the banks that they have to move their business and move their traffic to a telecoms company that is ready to provide it at the lowest possible and if not at zero cost and there is where we stand and we must achieve it,” he had added.

Elizabeth Warren rolls out 'calculator for the billionaires' in thinly veiled swipe at Bill Gates and Leon Cooperman

 Cache   

Elizabeth Warren happy

Sen. Elizabeth Warren rolled out a "calculator for the billionaires" on Thursday in a not-so-subtle swipe at super-rich critics Bill Gates and Leon Cooperman, both of whom recently attacked her wealth tax.

"Some billionaires seem confused about how much they would pay under my #TwoCentWealthTax," the Warren campaign said, referring to her signature tax. "Don't worry, now we have a calculator for that too."

Users are invited to identify their net worths, as well as whether they are billionaires. Special links are included for Gates and Cooperman that autofill their estimated fortunes — $107 billion and $3.2 billion, respectively.

The calculator comes a day after Bill Gates criticized Warren's wealth tax, which would impose a 2% tax on households with net worths above $50 million and levy a 6% rate on fortunes over $1 billion annually. The tax forms a key part of her populist campaign, and Warren has welcomed her public clashes with billionaires to highlight her progressive zeal.

At the New York Times Dealbook conference on Wednesday, Gates said he already paid $10 billion in taxes and said he would be "fine" with paying $20 billion.

"But, you know, when you say I should pay $100 billion, O.K., then I'm starting to do a little math about what I have left over," Gates said. "Sorry, I'm just kidding. So you really want the incentive system to be there and you can go a long ways without threatening that."

Gates then said he hadn't spoken with Warren and questioned her willingness to meet with a wealthy person. He could pay over $6 billion in wealth taxes under Warren's proposal.

"You know, I'm not sure how open-minded she is, or that she'd even be willing to sit down with somebody, you know, who has large amounts of money," Gates said.

Warren responded later in the evening with a tweet saying: "I'm always happy to meet with people, even if we have different views. @Bill Gates, if we get the chance, I'd love to explain exactly how much you'd pay under my wealth tax. (I promise it's not $100 billion.)"

Cooperman is another critic of the Massachussetts senator, and he's torn into her wealthy proposals as needlessly vicious to American billionaires.

"I don't need Elizabeth Warren telling me that I'm a deadbeat and that billionaires are deadbeats," Cooperman told CNBC on Monday. "The vilification of billionaires makes no sense to me."

The hedge-fund manager later said: "This is idiocy! It's appealing to the lowest common denominator and basically trying to turn people's heads around by promising a lot of free stuff."

Bill-Gates-Backed CarbonCure Figures Out Novel Way to Make Concrete More Green

 Cache   

The most-consumed resource on the planet is water. Any guesses what #2 is?

It's cement, the binding element used to make concrete. And as urbanization continues, we'll be using more and more cement each year. On his blog, Bill Gates writes that "By one estimate, the world will add 2 trillion square feet of buildings by 2060—the equivalent of putting up another New York City every month for the next 40 years."

The problem with cement is that making the stuff generates some 8% of the world's greenhouse gases (10% if you're counting just manmade greenhouse gases). To make cement, you need lime, which is extracted by sticking limestone into a kiln. Just about half of that limestone goes up in smoke during the process, and there's your C02 footprint streaming out of the smokestack. "And right now, we don't have practical ways to make [cement] without releasing carbon dioxide," Gates writes.

However, thanks in part to Gates, we do have a place to stick some of that CO2. Gates has helped fund a company called CarbonCure, which has figured out that if you inject CO2 into ready-mix concrete, the C02 reacts with calcium ions and is transformed into "a nano-sized calcium carbonate mineral that becomes permanently embedded in the concrete." This not only provides a convenient place to sequester the C02 forever--"the CO2 is chemically transformed into a mineral, which means it will never be released into the atmosphere as a greenhouse gas," the company says--but, as it turns out, the procedure actually increases the concrete's compressive strength.


That's a win for concrete plants, as they can use less cement to make the same amount of concrete, plus they get a green credential. CarbonCure has developed their injecting equipment into an add-on that can be retrofitted into an existing concrete plant's facility in a single day, so the disruption is minimal. And once it's up and running, the production time difference is negligible, and outweighed by the benefits, according to a case study:

- 45 000 yd3 of concrete were produced over an 8 month period using a 5% binder reduction in conjunction with an optimized dose of CO2.
- The estimated cement savings exceeded 450 tonnes and more than 400 tonnes of CO2 emissions were avoided.
- The use of the technology did not impact the producer's cycle time; all operations continued as normal throughout this assessment.

"We can save up to 500 million tons of C02 emissions every year," the company reckons. "48,000 cubic yards of concrete saved 1.5 million pounds of CO2 on 725 Ponce in Atlanta. That's equivalent to an acre of forestland sequestering CO2 for the next 800 years."

While it's not as good as if we'd never created the new C02 required by lime production in the first place, it seems unlikely that we'll do away with concrete anytime soon. CarbonCure's advances are a step in the right direction.

Elizabeth Warren rolls out 'calculator for the billionaires' in thinly veiled swipe at Bill Gates and Leon Cooperman

Elizabeth Warren happy

Sen. Elizabeth Warren rolled out a "calculator for the billionaires" on Thursday in a not-so-subtle swipe at super-rich critics Bill Gates and Leon Cooperman, both of whom recently attacked her wealth tax.

"Some billionaires seem confused about how much they would pay under my #TwoCentWealthTax," the Warren campaign said, referring to her signature tax. "Don't worry, now we have a calculator for that too."

Users are invited to identify their net worths, as well as whether they are billionaires. Special links are included for Gates and Cooperman that autofill their estimated fortunes — $107 billion and $3.2 billion, respectively.

The calculator comes a day after Bill Gates criticized Warren's wealth tax, which would impose a 2% tax on households with net worths above $50 million and levy a 6% rate on fortunes over $1 billion annually. The tax forms a key part of her populist campaign, and Warren has welcomed her public clashes with billionaires to highlight her progressive zeal.

At the New York Times Dealbook conference on Wednesday, Gates said he already paid $10 billion in taxes and said he would be "fine" with paying $20 billion.

"But, you know, when you say I should pay $100 billion, O.K., then I'm starting to do a little math about what I have left over," Gates said. "Sorry, I'm just kidding. So you really want the incentive system to be there and you can go a long ways without threatening that."

Gates then said he hadn't spoken with Warren and questioned her willingness to meet with a wealthy person. He could pay over $6 billion in wealth taxes under Warren's proposal.

"You know, I'm not sure how open-minded she is, or that she'd even be willing to sit down with somebody, you know, who has large amounts of money," Gates said.

Warren responded later in the evening with a tweet saying: "I'm always happy to meet with people, even if we have different views. @Bill Gates, if we get the chance, I'd love to explain exactly how much you'd pay under my wealth tax. (I promise it's not $100 billion.)"

Cooperman is another critic of the Massachussetts senator, and he's torn into her wealthy proposals as needlessly vicious to American billionaires.

"I don't need Elizabeth Warren telling me that I'm a deadbeat and that billionaires are deadbeats," Cooperman told CNBC on Monday. "The vilification of billionaires makes no sense to me."

The hedge-fund manager later said: "This is idiocy! It's appealing to the lowest common denominator and basically trying to turn people's heads around by promising a lot of free stuff."
