billon dollar companies who evades taxes by offshoring money

The majority of Fortune 500 companies stash their cash away from the reach of United States authorities in tax havens around the world, keeping $90 billion out of the country’s coffers and placing an extra burden on American citizens, In 2013, Apple, GE, Microsoft, Pfizer and Merck rounded out the top five in the amount of profit held offshore in subsidiary shell companies, often just post office boxes, located in countries with corporate tax rates far lower than those in the United States, according to the study, conducted by the U.S. Public Interest Research Group and the Center for Tax Justice.

Under current U.S. tax code, these companies can defer paying taxes on the offshore money indefinitely since corporations do not have to pay income tax on their overseas profits until that money is brought into the U.S. Experts say the tax rules that allow this were put in place due to lobbying by the companies that reap the benefits.

Daily Deals Market Revenues To Grow 138% in 2011

This infographic (source :Dailybits ) takes a  look at what the biggest “daily deal services” sites do, which ones have gained most popularity and how they have achieved such viral success, along with analysis and comparisons between these main players 
Revenue from online daily deal and discounts sites including Groupon and LivingSocial will top $2.67 billion in 2011, up 138% from $1.12 billion in 2010, projects Local Offer Network Inc., which sells advertising and technology services to group-buying sites.
The company says at least 320 U.S. sites offer daily deals  and US Daily Deals sites in total offered 63,000 deals in 2010. That record will almost certainly be shattered this year, as Local Offer Network estimates that the first quarter of 2011 brought 40,000 daily deal offers to U.S. consumers. “This is driven by new deal brands and an increasing number of sites publishing multiple offers per day,” the report from the company says, adding that the average daily deal site in the United States serves at least 10 markets.

The most popular types of online limited-time deals in the United States remain those related to food and drink, which in the fourth quarter of 2010 accounted for 26% of such online discount offers.

Beauty, spa and massage offers continue to hold the second spot, with 20% of offers, followed by fitness and nutrition, 7%, and sports and recreation, 5%.Home products and services are making some of the most significant gains, reaching 6% in the fourth quarter from 3% in the third quarter. Offers related to clothing and accessories also are gaining importance, the report says, reaching 4% in the fourth quarter, up from 2% in the second quarter.
However not all is hunky dory with the Daily Deals Market.A recent study by Rice University found that, on average, just 55.5 percent of merchants made money via a Groupon deal, with salons and spas, plus restaurants, having the hardest time with a Groupon daily deal promotion. In fact, according to the survey, just 43 percent of restaurants earned a profit with a Groupon deal, prompting some to ask why Google even considered buying it in the first place.

Internet Demographics: 2000 Vs 2010: Infographics

The first Infographic is from io9 comparing demographics, technology, environment and entertainment statistics from the year 2000 vs. 2010. Some truly amazing numbers such as:
  • 900 million people more in 2010
  • 1.6 billion more people on the internet in 2010
  • Nearly 5 billion more mobile subscriptions in 2010  and 100 million less movie tickets sold globally in 201

    The second Infographic is from io9 which shows how  users demographic have changed

    A recent survey conducted by Pew Internet revealed that the average age of a user of social networking sites is 38, a big increase from the average age of 33 just three years ago. To boot, over half of all adult Internet users are now over the age of 35. 
    The data is very consistent with the latest U.S. Census Bureau brief that shows seniors are growing faster than younger populations, contributing to the rise in the median age to 37 in 2010 in most U.S. states.
