Like Chrome but dont like adverts? Then you might like Brave Browser . Its a browser based on Chromium so it looks a lot like Chrome, and its built by one of the co-founders of Mozilla, who should have a better idea of how to build a browser than most. As youve probably guessed, Brave has a built-in ad-blocker, and its simple to use and configure for individual sites just tap the lion icon at the top of a page to enable or disable ads, trackers and third-party cookies for the site youre on (although TechRadar would just love it if you chose to whitelist us to help us keep the lights on). Brave is still in beta though, and this is just the beginning, as it has ambitions to work with websites and advertisers, rather than simply blocking ads. The desktop version of the browser already lets you choose to show unobtrusive ads, or pay publishers of the sites that you block ads on, and in future the company even plans to launch a revenue share model, where users who dont block adverts get a small cut of the income which they can either keep or distribute to the sites and bloggers they want to support.

Post demonetization, there is a strong expectation on reduction in income tax slab, which will further aid disposable income.

Abheek Barua (At ETMarkets.com, we have invited five biggies from the financial world to present their own budgets before the Union Budget is unveiled on Feb 1. Here is the first one, from the Chief Economist of HDFC Bank.) Start an income transfer programme First, I would introduce a large income transfer programme, say a top-up on all low balance Jan Dhan Accounts. There is some evidence that demonetisation has indeed hurt the most vulnerable income segments both directly through the lack of currency and indirectly through a fall in economic activity, job-losses etc. This programme of income support would help prop consumption up and also restore confidence in people with the simple yet powerful message that what the government promised to mop up as black money has been redistributed to them. Go easy on fiscal deficit; offer clarity on taxes Second, I would go a little easy on fiscal consolidation by keeping the fiscal Deficit-GDP ratio for 2017-18.

No income tax rise looks to be planned by the Government at the moment but, of course, Surrey is now proposing this quite dramatic measure on council tax. What do the people in Thames Ditton didn't think about that? 15% is, yeah, huge, isn't it? Far too much. Social care is very important and I think, possibly, we should reconsider how our money's spent.

Planned Parenthood says it provides non-abortion services to about 11,000 low-income women in Texas each year through Medicaid. No public funding in Texas is used for abortion, while Medicaid reimbursements cover services that include well-women exams, screenings for sexually transmitted diseases and birth control. Sparks is the same judge who put on hold new Texas rules requiring the burial or cremation of fetal remains. He began the three-day hearing on Planned Parenthood by scolding attorneys for lingering on the videos, which he said amounted to baloney in regards to the issue at stake. Sparks told attorneys he instead wanted to know about the type of Medicaid services Planned Parenthood provides and how many clinics would be impacted. Texas has been aggressive in its efforts to weaken Planned Parenthood, including kicking the organization out of the state women's health program in 2013.

But are local people prepared to pay? it would be fantastic. If they work it out and need the money that's fine. It is a knee-jerk reaction. Somebody says we need money and they make you pay. The referendum is planned for May and the government says it is up to the people of Surrey to decide whether to accept the rise or veto it. But this is a much bigger question about who funds social care. Is it really fair to share the responsibility away from Westminster? It is not right that we should thrust the social care crisis on local authorities, all of whom have different levels of income all over the country.

KUALA LUMPUR: Consumers and businesses continued echoing glum sentiments over economic conditions in 2016 that will prolong into the coming months. The Malaysian Institute of Economic Research’s (MIER) fourth quarter economic outlook for 2016 (Q416) unveiled yesterday, recorded a further decline in Business Conditions Index (BCI) and Consumer Sentiments Index (CSI) from the third quarter of 2016. Both the BCI and CSI remained below the demarcation points of 100 with CSI plunging from 73.6 points in the third quarter (which was the lowest of all time), to 69.8 points, and the BCI going down to 81.2 from 83.9, the report revealed. MIER executive director Dr Zakariah Abdul Rashid said “BCI and CSI have not been good for the past quarters and going forward for the first quarter of 2017 will not be as good as well.” Surveys in the report found that consumers expressed their pessimism over their finances in the near future after being hit by factors such as income falling to the years lowest as at Q416, fears over rising prices, insufficient jobs and bleak employment outlook.

Admittedly, I think about and like taxes more than the average American. When I do my own tax return or a family members' return, I use a few different tax products and to be perfectly honest, I even consult with a tax professional - actually two or even three. However, not everyone is willing to spend their time, effort, and money on learning more about taxes or testing the accuracy of different programs. Your choice is simple: Either make the investment to do it yourself, or risk making mistakes! If it sounds stressful, risky, or you just don't want to do a lot of reading or researching and you hate double-checking, then read no further - hire a Tax Pro. There are scenarios where you should "go pro" - like having self-employment income, experiencing life changes, paying for extended family care, or determining which credits you qualify for, such as EITC, Child Credits, or Dependent Care.

The bully looms large, and its our responsibility to call out bullying wherever we see it and to come together to change the culture that permits it. In October 2016, 65 organizations and individuals from across the country came together to launch a new movement to end human trafficking and sexual exploitation. True freedom means being free from violence, exploitation, and oppression. Human trafficking and sexual exploitation must be understood as human rights issues fueled by gender, racial and income inequality. We must listen to survivors and their experiencesand promote their voicesto change and shape laws, policies and public perception. Lawmakers must stop talking about how women love them and start acting the way they would want their wives, daughters and sisters to be treated. As millions descend on Washington, D.

Or perhaps Spicer just meant the "diversity" of both millionaires and billionaires. Any notion that the private healthcare market, which has long prioritized its profiteering above any guarantees of access, cost, or quality, will somehow do a better job of assuring "every person the financial feasibility to purchase the coverage they want" requires a suspension of disbelief that is truly Orwellian. Probably the best evidence of the failure of the market-driven system - which saw the U.S. fall to 37th in the world according to a World Health Organization ranking early in this century - is the decades long push for major healthcare reform. The Affordable Care Act was a step forward, especially in access, through the expansion of Medicaid for many low and moderate income adults, and a ban on some of the worst insurance abuses that permitted more people to buy insurance plans through the ACA market exchanges.
