Tax Haven USA: The Vortex-Shaped Hole in Global Financial Transparency

 Tax Havens  Comments Off on Tax Haven USA: The Vortex-Shaped Hole in Global Financial Transparency

Yves here. Nicholas Shaxsons landmark book on tax havens, Treasure Island, described how the US was the biggest sponsor of what Shaxson called offshore, or tax havens and tax secrecy. He tells us how the US is working to keep it that way.

By Nicholas Shaxson. Adapted from a post by the Tax Justice Network.

The U.S., seen from space

If people stash their wealth or earn income overseas, that is just fine as long as their tax authorities get the information they need to tax that wealth or income according to the law, and as long as money laundering and financial crimes can be effectively tracked, and so on. Where there are cross-border barriers to legitimate tax collection, law enforcement and other instruments of democratic societies, then there is an offshore problem.

The only credible way to provide the necessary information is through so-called automatic information exchange (AIE), where governments make sure the necessary information is available across borders, as a matter of routine.

For years, those who advocated AIE were ignored or even ridiculed. Pie in the sky, many said. The OECD, the club of rich countries that dominates international rule-making on tax and tax-related information sharing, was for years pushing its so-called Internationally Accepted Standard which was, well, the internationally accepted standard for cross-border information exchange, despite being only slightly better than useless.

In the past couple of years, however, the world has turned.

The OECD is now in the middle of putting in place a system known as the Common Reporting Standards (CRS) to implement automatic information exchange (AIE). The CRS is the first ever potentially global system of AIE, and although it has serious shortcomings and loopholes, it is potentially a major step forwards from a largely transparency-free past.

Meanwhile the European Union had been moving ahead with plans to beef up its own, older schemes for AIE, notably through amendments to tighten up its loophole-ridden Savings Tax Directive and other related initiatives (for an overview of that, see here.) The United States, for its part, has been rumbling forwards with its Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), which is, at least technically speaking from a self-interested U.S. perspective, fairly strong. (In fact, the OECDs CRS is modeled on FATCA.)

But and here comes a big but how do these different initiatives mesh together? Might anything fall between the cracks?

Online freedom is declining

 Freedom  Comments Off on Online freedom is declining
Dec 182014

A new report from Freedom House, a watchdog dedicated to promoting the cause of freedom across the globe, has been published with some interesting observations on how free various nations are in terms of their internet access.

The Freedom on the Net 2014 report, spotted by Mashable, involved evaluating some 65 countries, and the bad news is that over half of them, 36 to be precise, actually dipped in their levels of online freedom between May 2013 and 2014.

The report also observed an overall increase in pressure from governments on independent news websites –the sites which have heretofore been among the few uncensored sources of news in some countries. And more people have been arrested and/or prosecuted for digital activities than ever before.

Freedom House noted: “Dozens of citizen journalists were attacked while reporting on conflict in Syria and anti-government protests in Egypt, Turkey and Ukraine. Other governments stepped up licensing and regulation for web platforms”.

Arrests due to online messages concerning political or social issues were found in 38 of the 65 studied countries, and this was most prevalent in the Middle East and North Africa, where detentions of citizens occurred in 10 of the 11 nations examined.

Freedom House also found that 41 of the countries had passed legislation (or at least proposed it) to penalize “legitimate forms of speech online”, and to expand government surveillance powers (no surprise there).

The report observed an increase in sophisticated, targeted malware attacks on human rights groups and critics of governments, with such attacks being seen in half of the nations evaluated.

It makes for pretty bleak reading in many respects, though on a more positive note, Freedom House did state: “Despite overall declines in global internet freedom, pushback by civil society was amplified this year by reactions to the NSA surveillance revelations. Awareness of the threats to fundamental rights expanded beyond civil society, as ordinary users around the world became more engaged in securing their privacy and freedom of expression online”.

“In select cases, long-running internet freedom campaigns finally garnered the necessary momentum to succeed”, added Freedom House.

After early stumble, Navasota crushes Liberty Hill to make 4A state title game

 Liberty  Comments Off on After early stumble, Navasota crushes Liberty Hill to make 4A state title game
Dec 132014

WACO Liberty Hill smelled an upset until Navasota’s record-smashing offense seized the night.

Behind quarterback Shelton Eppler, the Rattlers overcame an early 14-0 deficit to defeat the Panthers 49-26 in a Class 4A Division I state semifinal Friday at McLane Stadium.

Navasota (15-0) will play the winner of the semifinal between Argyle and Graham in the state championship at 4 p.m. Friday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington.

Liberty Hill (12-3) might have come up short of its goal, but the Panthers had the state’s top-ranked team on the ropes for a half. Navasota outscored the Panthers 28-0 in the second half.

“We just couldn’t make first downs (in the second half),” Liberty Hill coach Jerry Vance said. “We thought if we could get first downs and keep the clock moving, that gave us our best opportunity.”

Eppler, entering the game with 61 touchdown passes, threw scoring passes of 83, 65, 74, 50, 5 and 17 yards. He finished with 456 yards and capped the scoring with a 10-yard run in the fourth quarter

Baylor-bound receiver Tren’Davian Dickson set a national record when he caught his 35th touchdown of the season, a 65-yard play in the third quarter.

“You could see the fight in our team’s eyes,” Navasota coach Lee Fedora said. “They knew this would be a smash-mouth football game but they made the necessary adjustments at halftime for us to win.”

Fedora reminded his players in a post-game huddle that “our job isn’t done yet.” He told the players he was part of an A&M Consolidated football team that went 14-0 in 1989 before losing in the state championship game.

“To this day, that sticks in my side,” Fedora said.

Tancook islands ferry grounded again

 Islands  Comments Off on Tancook islands ferry grounded again
Nov 082014

The Tancook islands ferry is out of service yet again because of a failed port engine.

The William G. Ernst will be out of service for about two weeks.

The breakdown comes just two weeks after the 32-year-old ferry underwent three days of maintenance.

Transportation Department spokeswoman Sue McKeage said the province has chartered a boat to provide transportation to Big and Little Tancook islands beginning at 1 p.m. Saturday.

The Eastern Points, a whale watching boat that sails under Capt. Walter Flower out of Lunenburg, will shuttle people back and forth to the islands while the ferry undergoes repairs. It will maintain the same schedule as the William G. Ernst.

More than 100 residents of both islands packed into Big Tancooks community centre in late September to discuss problems with their aging ferry.

They complained of an unreliable service in which people got left behind on the dock, food spoiled and work was delayed because home and business owners couldnt get the necessary supplies on the replacement ferry when they needed them.

The ferry came under the scrutiny of Transport Canada in late summer. It reduced the ferrys capacity to 45 passengers from 95 after it failed a stability requirement.

Chester-St.Margarets MLA Denise Peterson-Rafuse is working with municipal councillor Errol Knickle and a committee of island residents in an effort to come up with short-term recommendations to improve the service and longer-term changes theyd like to see.

7 Reasons Your SEO Campaign Will Fail and What You Can Do About It

 SEO  Comments Off on 7 Reasons Your SEO Campaign Will Fail and What You Can Do About It
Sep 172014

Most SEO campaigns are destined for failure because expectations are too high, budgets are too low, decisions are made based on assumptions instead of data and customer expectations are misunderstood.

Whether you’re managing a campaign yourself, or you’ve hired an SEO professional, ask these 7 questions to determine if your campaign is on the right track.

Setting unrealistic goals for your SEO campaign, such as dominating Google and Bing for every product or service you offer right out of the gate, will most always result in failure. Instead, set realistic objectives for your campaign and achieve success incrementally. For example, most businesses offer multiple products or services. If your business falls into this category, it can be daunting to achieve top rankings for everything you offer. With an incremental strategy, you can optimize for one product or service, and after you’ve achieved success, move onto the next product or service and so on.

Also, keep in mind that a successful SEO strategy can be perceived as unsuccessful only because the goals are so completely unrealistic.

This is a big one. Most businesses do not have realistic timeframes or budgets for their SEO campaigns. They want results immediately, and at the same time, are only willing to make a minimal investment. Consult with an SEO professional and determine what a realistic timeframe and budget would be for your type of business. The more competitive your industry, the greater timeframe and larger budget you should expect. If you go into an SEO campaign with a short timeframe and unwillingness to make the necessary investment, it will most likely fail because you are not giving your SEO professional the necessary time to test and make adjustments needed for a successful long-term campaign.

Optimizing for the wrong keywords is common and often the cause of an SEO campaign’s failure. Ideally, you’ve hired an agency or professional to manage your campaign and they’ve chosen the right keywords after performing extensive keyword research. However, if you’ve selected your own keywords based on what you “think” your customers are searching, without verifying with real data, it’s highly probable that your campaign is not using the right keywords.

Analyze keyword data using a reputable keyword research tool and see what keywords your (successful) competitors are using, to make sure you’re optimizing for the right keywords.

If you have failed to select the right keywords, then you’re either not delivering enough traffic to your site, or not delivering the right traffic or a combination of both. A quick sniff test to determine if your campaign is delivering the right traffic is to look at your site’s bounce rate for organic search traffic. If you see a high bounce rate for organic search visitors, then what they’re searching for is not consistent with what they’re finding on your website. It’s important to distinguish the bounce rate for organic visitors from other visitor types (i.e., direct visits, referral visits, etc.) so you can make informed decisions based on your organic search traffic specifically. If you have a high bounce rate for all visitor types, this means you may have a larger issue to address, such as your website.

A successful SEO campaign starts with a professional website that engages visitors upon arrival. Visitor engagement is crucial to a campaign’s success, because engagement ultimately results in conversions, which is how most businesses measure a campaign’s success. The lack of a professional website discredits your brand and therefore reduces engagement and conversions.

Here are some questions to ask when evaluating your website:

Turkish govt unblocks Twitter

 Free Speech  Comments Off on Turkish govt unblocks Twitter
Apr 112014

Turkey has lifted a much-criticised block on Twitter, 24 hours after its highest court overturned the ban as a breach of the right to free speech.

Premier Recep Tayyip Erdogan on March 20 shuttered access to the social media site after it had been used to spread a torrent of anonymous leaks implicating his inner circle in corruption.

Turkey’s NATO allies and international human rights groups strongly criticised the ban – as well as an ongoing block of video-sharing website YouTube – as a step backward for Turkey’s democracy.

On Wednesday, Turkey’s Constitutional Court ruled the Twitter ban violated free speech and ordered the communications ministry and telecoms authority to reverse it ‘with immediate effect’.

The government took 24 hours to react. First the telecoms authority TIB removed from its website a court order on the Twitter block and started contacting internet service providers to lift the ban.

Shortly after – as many of Turkey’s Twitter accounts came live again – the transport and communications ministry confirmed the move in a brief statement.

‘In line with the decision made by the Constitutional Court … the measure blocking access to the Internet site has been removed,’ it said.

‘After the necessary technical arrangements, the site will be opened to use.’

The ban had been widely circumvented by many of Turkey’s almost 12 million Twitter users, who have instead sent tweets via text message or by adjusting their internet settings.

Many Twitter users quickly commented on the move, with Nervana Mahmoud writing from Egypt, ‘Joy to the world, the Sultan has agreed’, using a common nickname for Erdogan.

Orange County Stem Cell Clinic, TeleHealth, Now Offering Insurance-Covered Regenerative Medicine Treatments

 Regenerative Medicine  Comments Off on Orange County Stem Cell Clinic, TeleHealth, Now Offering Insurance-Covered Regenerative Medicine Treatments
Sep 092013

Orange County, CA (PRWEB) September 09, 2013

The leading regenerative medicine clinic on the West Coast, TeleHealth, is now offering multiple stem cell therapy treatments for arthritis and soft tissue injury such as tendonitis of the shoulder. The injection treatments are covered by insurance, and are offered with Board Certified doctors. For more information and scheduling, call (888) 828-4575.

Regenerative medicine with stem cell therapy represents the latest, cutting edge technology for healing degenerative conditions. The stem cell injection treatments possess the potential for actually repairing the cartilage damage in arthritic joints or tendon damage in an injured shoulder. For an individual attempting to avoid surgery such as a joint replacement or a shoulder arthroscopy, stem cell therapy at TeleHealth may be just the option to allow that.

There are multiple regenerative medicine options provided at the TeleHealth clinic including platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP), bone marrow-derived stem cell injections as well as those derived from fat. The injections are all done as an outpatient and since the stem cells are harvested from the patient, the risks are extremely low.

Stem cells are crucial for rebuilding damaged tissue as they differentiate into the necessary cells such as cartilage or tendon cells. In addition, platelet rich plasma therapy provides an excellent inflammation generator to jumpstart the healing process. Unlike steroid injections which tend to simply mask pain, these injections help by attempting to regenerate and repair tissue. This can get patients back to activities they love, reduce pain, and avoid surgery.

Most insurance is accepted at TeleHealth including PPO’s, Medicare, Workers Compensation, Personal Injury Liens and self pay as well. For more information and scheduling with the leading stem cell therapy in California clinic, call (888) 828-4575.

9 Steps to SEO Utopia: The Web Developer’s SEO Edition

 SEO  Comments Off on 9 Steps to SEO Utopia: The Web Developer’s SEO Edition
Mar 082013

By Ricardo Figueiredo

When it comes to search engine optimization (SEO), most developers understand its importance to the success of a website, chalking it up as an after-thought ordinarily taken care of in the post-production phase. But as SEO transcends into elements of design, U/X, and wireframe planning, it’s never been more important for a developer to grasp the most essential elements of SEO as it relates to the pre-production phase of website development.

The truth is that many developers unintentionally skip crucial SEO steps when developing a new design, and once the new site goes live, it becomes much more difficult to implement SEO changes than while the site is in pre-production.

“Pre-production SEO” ensures that while a new design (or website) is in development, it is also going through the proper on-page optimization steps. Some of the most essential SEO elements can be implemented during production, and a developer can bring so much more to the table when SEO foundations are incorporated into their ideas.

Developers can make the most of their efforts and increase the value of their position by following 9 essential pre-production SEO steps.

Here’s how.

Website architecture is one of the most important aspects of both usability and SEO functionality. Navigation should consist of properly structured HTML with seamless CSS functions like drop-down, hover or expanding menus using JavaScript. But developers need to be cognizant of design essentials that also impact SEO. While most CMS systems have navigation styles built-in, a developer designing one from scratch needs to always enable JavaScript for CSS menus, create text-based header links, and code all links as visible no matter what kind of browser is used. To double check completed work, links in a cached, text only version of a webpage should show all internal links as well as the main navigation. If missing links are discovered, it will cause problems in the post-production phase.

URL structures or permalinks are an SEO staple, aiding search engines in their quest for understanding keywords that are relevant to your website. The most obvious part of any given URL is the domain name, but equally important are subdirectories of the URL which define a site’s depth and width. When creating pages in a site, it’s critical to choose page and post names that are keyword-rich. Of course, a URL structure should never be used as a keyword stuffing mechanism instead, developers need to be cognizant of how subdirectories are built with client keywords at top-of-mind. Avoid the temptation to categorize using numbers even though the strategy is clearer in the sense that information can be organized consecutively, numbers don’t provide the necessary information for search engines to understand the website in greater detail. For example, which URL provides the most face value information about the website?

Cook Islands declares largest marine park

 Islands  Comments Off on Cook Islands declares largest marine park
Aug 292012

29 August 2012 | last updated at 02:06PM

Prime Minister Henry Puna said the 1.065 million square kilometre (411,000 square mile) reserve (is) the largest area in history by a single country for integrated ocean conservation and management. Puna said protecting the Pacific, one of the last pristine marine eco-systems, was the Cooks major contribution to the wellbeing of not only our peoples, but also of humanity. The marine park will provide the necessary framework to promote sustainable development by balancing economic growth interests such as tourism, fishing and deep sea mining with conserving core biodiversity in the ocean, he said.

Australia announced in June that it was creating a network of marine parks covering 3.1 million square kilometres, more than a third of its territorial waters. However, they are dotted around its huge coastline.

The new Cook Islands protected zone will be the largest single marine park in the world, taking in the entire southern half of the nations waters.

The nations 15 islands have a combined landmass barely larger than Washington DC but its waters include environmentally valuable coral reefs, seagrass beds and fisheries. – AFP

SEMrush GEO Helps You Find SEO Clients in Your Area

 SEO  Comments Off on SEMrush GEO Helps You Find SEO Clients in Your Area
Jul 142012

One of the most challenging tasks for many SEO experts is to find customers. This is especially true for those with newer companies that dont have the reputation of Bruce Clay, WebiMax, and BlueGlass Interactive, for example. For them, SEMrush GEO, a new feature added to the already popular SEMrush professional SEO software, may be the quickest way to identify potential clients.

The fastest way for any new business to grow is to offer its services to other local businesses first and establish a good reputation among entrepreneurs in its neighborhood.

The challenge is to identify businesses that are ready to pay for search engine marketing. While Google AdWords does offer an Analyze Competition feature that allows advertisers to compare their AdWords performance to other advertisers in similar categories, no other tool allows SEOs and search marketing experts to identify AdWords spenders based on location and with so many in-depth details.

After the initial geographic search by zip code or city, SEMrush GEO provides all the necessary contact information (URL, physical address, and phone number), as well as the approximate marketing spend that these businesses pay for AdWords. To compile the list in such detail, SEMrush GEO grabs data from SEMrush main, Yellow Book records, and Google Maps.

With SEMrush GEO, SEO businesses can uncover prospective clients local to them.

The tool first shows a limited number of businesses, but it allows SEOs to order the full report by completing a short contact form. There is no pricing specified on the site, but it was safe to assume that an in-depth report of this nature would not be free. After filling in the request, I received a response with a quote of $1 for each listing and a minimum order of 100 listings.

For SEOs looking for new customers, SEMrush GEO listings enable immediate contact. In the case of local businesses, the advantage is that they can meet the clients face-to-face. Another important aspect is that SEMrush GEO pinpoints both large and small businesses, thus enabling potential business relationships with neighboring corporations.

Teksapiens will bring these companies up to date technologically and help them dominate the market.

The final reference on the floor of the state legislature to one of the most contentious issues of the session was met with bipartisan support.

Less than an hour before the General Assembly adjourned for the year, Rep. Eddie Bass (D-Prospect) rose and faked a motion to call up the so-called guns-in-parking-lots legislation.

He had sponsored two related bills on the matter. One prohibited businesses from banning the storage of firearms by employees in their cars parked on company lots. The other established protections against workplace discrimination for employees based on their ownership, storage or transportation of a firearm. Until the legislatures final day, the fate of both bills was not completely certain.

Madam Speaker, he deadpanned, with a sheet of paper in his hand. I move to suspend the necessary rules for the immediate consideration … oh, wait a minute, thats the wrong one.

The members burst into laughter and applauded.

There was likely relief in the laughter, at least for the leadership of both parties. The states top Republicans had exerted plenty of energy in an ultimately successful effort to keep the issue from getting to the floor of either chamber. Knowing that, and hoping to foster Republican infighting, leading Democrats had tried to force a floor vote on legislation they had no intention of supporting.

For the states gun lobby, however, which spent the session aggressively working the issue, things did not end on a cheerful note. They left the Hill feeling stiffed.
