The European Commission has published proposals for direct taxes across the European Union (EU), including a possible Europe-wide version of VAT. The proposals are part of a package of options being explored to find new ways of funding the EU budget. The UK, France and Germany have all rejected the idea of direct taxes in the EU. Currently all 27 member states pay a fixed amount to the EU budget, based on their GDP and a percentage of their VAT. The proposal was first mooted by the EU’s budget commissioner Janusz Lewandowski in August. whatsapp More From Our Partners Russell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgA ProPublica investigation has caused outrage in the U.S. this weekvaluewalk.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.org980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comMark Eaton, former NBA All-Star, dead at 64nypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBiden received funds from top Russia lobbyist before Nord Stream 2 giveawaynypost.comSidney Crosby, Alex Ovechkin are graying and frayingnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.com Share Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Tuesday 19 October 2010 8:39 pm EU proposes Europe-wide VAT whatsapp by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableySerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comMagellan TimesThis Is Why The Roy Rogers Museum Has Been Closed For GoodMagellan Times Tags: NULL

Here at The Motley Fool we believe that considering a diverse range of insights makes us better investors. Enter Your Email Address Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this. As a Lloyds Banking Group (LSE: LLOY) shareholder, in normal times I’d be really happy to see a 40% jump in the shares. And the Lloyds share price did exactly that between the end of October and market close on Tuesday. But it hardly seems like a time for rejoicing, not when I’m down 40% year-to-date. And down further than that since I first bought.But it’s better than the FTSE 100 in November, up just 15% over the same period. So what’s caused the Lloyds share price spike? I’ll tell you something I don’t think it is.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…I don’t think it’s anything to do with the underlying long-term health of the bank itself. Yes, I know things have improved since we got the news of three successful Covid-19 vaccine trials. But that was surely going to happen, sooner or later. I can’t see Lloyds in five years’ time being materially much different should vaccinations start next summer instead of December.Lloyds share price hit by falling profitAdmittedly, the first nine months of the year brought a pre-tax profit of just £620m, compared to £2,562m in the same period in 2019. That surely justifies the Lloyds share price crash, doesn’t it? But that’s now, not next year. And certainly not 2025. And while we wait for post-pandemic days to arrive, Lloyds’ liquidity looks just fine to me. There was no need for stress tests this year, as we had real stress. But I see no risk of Lloyds going under, or coming close to it.Now, I say I don’t think Lloyds’ long-term fundamental outlook is significantly changed. But that’s not what the markets work on. No, markets work on the short term. On what’s expected this year, this quarter, even next week. And for short-term followers, I can see how Lloyds with a vaccine can look far more attractive that Lloyds without a vaccine. But those who take a long-term view of the Lloyds share price can surely beat that approach.A bit of economic brightness on the horizon?There’s possibly some economic light beginning to show as we approach the deadline for securing a Brexit trade agreement. I don’t want to tempt fate, but JPMorgan this week put the chances of a deal at 80%. A trade deal would almost certainly help our battered economy, and that in turn would help the banks.But no, I think the biggest reason for the Lloyds share price gains in November is straightforward. In my view, it’s a softening of the over-reaction that sent the shares plunging so deeply in the first place. I do think the banks deserved to be marked down by the economic damage caused by Covid-19. But investors do go overboard.Was the extent of sell-off, which pushed Lloyds down more than 60% in September justified? I don’t think it was. And I reckon the return of what I see as a bit of rationality shows what a bad move it can be to sell a share just because it’s down.

FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this While the history of captivity remains a stain on this society, those directly affected by these conditions point to things officials can do to protect the incarcerated population. When that fails to happen prisoners face no choice but to take matters into their own hands.Journalist Kim Kelly broke the news on March 22 that two dorms at Rikers Island are on strike. Their statement reads: “Two dorms of 45 inmates at Rikers are refusing to leave our dorms for work duties or for meals. We must take these actions in protest of the lack of personal protective equipment (PPE) and cleaning supplies provided to inmates, the crowded living conditions imposed on us prior to the pandemic and made worse by the daily addition of new inmates from other facilities, some of whom are highly likely to have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus, and the arbitrary disconnection of our phones for three hours on the morning of March 22.“We demand the same calls issued by the Board of Corrections. That all inmates: over 50 with parole violations, at high risk due to health conditions, with less than a year of sentenced time BE IMMEDIATELY RELEASED. We do this in solidarity with the striking prisoners of Hudson County.”On March 17 a New York City Department of Corrections employee died after testing positive for the coronavirus COVID-19. In a press release, the NYDOC stated that the employee had “limited contact” with people in custody. The first confirmed case of COVID-19 for an inmate at Rikers Island was announced March 18, just hours after it was confirmed that a guard at a security checkpoint tested positive. Since then, the number of incarcerated people at Rikers testing positive for the virus has reached at least 38. Given unsanitary conditions, overcrowding and lack of access to medical care at Rikers (medical facilities have zero ventilators), it is imperative that decarceration be prioritized before this vulnerable and captive population is decimated.Nick Pinto described the subjugation at Rikers Island facilities for the Intercept: “They are locked in filthy intake rooms with dozens of other people for days on end, confined to housing units or dorm-style sleeping areas with scores of other people, dependent on staff for soap and on correction officers for permission and an escort to visit a medical clinic. The roughly 5,400 men and women detained in city jails on Rikers Island don’t have the agency to protect themselves from the disease, even as they are constantly exposed to the contagions of the outside world through the constant churn of three daily shifts of corrections officers and staff.” (March 18)This particular jail and this country have a long history of super-exploiting the labor of incarcerated people. Responses to this global pandemic show that, unsurprisingly, the current moment is not divorced from centuries of violent history inside and outside prison walls. Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced that New York state plans to use the labor of incarcerated people to produce 100,000 gallons of hand sanitizer a week. Inmates will receive $1.15 an hour or less for their labor, and hand sanitizer is considered contraband in prison, due to its alcohol content.New York City has a Pandemic Influenza Surge Plan for Managing In- and Out-of-Hospital Deaths, which details using the labor of those incarcerated at Rikers to bury bodies in mass graves on Hart Island if the city’s cadaver storage and cremation facilities are overwhelmed. Incarcerated people were digging graves on Hart Island in the 1980s and ’90s, where bodies of those who died of AIDS were sent to be buried. (nyc.gov) Conditions are rapidly worsening at Rikers, and both Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Cuomo’s responses are criminally negligent. The fact that they are not prioritizing releasing people from detention is setting the stage for genocide. There is also a campaign demanding that Rikers Island be shut down and all prisoners be freed immediately. Call Gov. Cuomo at 518-474-8390 and Mayor de Blasio at 718-788-7585 to take part in that campaign.Whether it’s the millions of people criminalized and incarcerated in the United States, or the hundreds of thousands of migrants detained within its violent borders, we must free them all. This moment, and every moment, calls upon us to demand that we use our resources to provide material care, not cages.

Studies of cryptogam responses to climate change in the polar regions are scarce because these slow-growing organisms require long-term monitoring studies. Here, we analyse the response of a lichen and moss community to 10 years of passive environmental manipulation using open-top chambers (OTCs) in the maritime Antarctic region. Cover of the dominant lichen Usnea antarctica declined by 71 % in the OTCs. However, less dominant lichen species showed no significant responses except for an increase in Ochrolechia frigida, which typically covered dying lichen and moss vegetation. There were no detectable responses in the moss or associated micro-arthropod communities to the influence of the OTCs. Based on calculated respiration rates, we hypothesise that the decline of U. antarctica was most likely caused by increased net winter respiration rates (11 %), driven by the higher temperatures and lower light levels experienced inside the OTCs as a result of greater snow accumulation. During summer, U. antarctica appears unable to compensate for this increased carbon loss, leading to a negative carbon balance on an annual basis, and the lichen therefore appears to be vulnerable to such climate change simulations. These findings indicate that U. antarctica dominated fell-fields may change dramatically if current environmental change trends continue in the maritime Antarctic, especially if associated with increases in winter snow depth or duration.
