“If other countries limit the free flow of talent, we'd hope the UK does not follow that trend.” 'Screen fatigue' prompts 'alarming' fall in ebooks British readers are falling out of love with the ebook at an "alarming rate", says The Guardian. Sales of consumer ebooks slumped by 17% to £204m last year, the lowest level since 2011 as printed book sales to a five-year high.

Quote of the dayIt's hard to take Trump's tax plan seriously "This plan is so costly that it is hard to take seriously and, if anything, it leaves us more sceptical that even a modest package of tax cuts will eventually pass Congress early next year." Paul Ashworth, chief US economist at Capital Economics, after Donald Trump set out plans to cut corporate and personal taxes .

Ranvir, things are getting personal? Yes, not afraid to use colourful language to make a point about Jeremy Corbyn's ability to lead the country. He does not want to use nuclear missiles to defend country. He does not want to use.

is Boris Johnson being left out of the election campaign. I really think instead of personal attacks, if Conservative Ministers want to take issue with what Jeremy Corbyn says, and what he wants to do, then let Theresa May debate with him, but, I mean, for a Foreign Secretary I.

One of the most stressful things as a healthcare professional is feeling that you can't do a safe job, the best for your patience. That's why we are all in it at the moment.

If you guessed Donald Trump and his pack of spoiled rotten sociopaths, you're correct! Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola, hosts of The Young Turks, discuss. Tell us what you think in the comment section below. http://tytnetwork.com/go "President Donald Trump’s tax proposal would likely amount to a fat tax cut for Trump himself. The proposal, unveiled on Wednesday afternoon by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn ― both alumni of Goldman Sachsoffers more than a few breaks for the country’s millionaires. At least three of these changes would almost certainly benefit the president or his family ― the elimination of the alternative minimum tax or AMT, the repeal of the estate tax, and a reduction on the tax rate for small business owners. We know almost nothing about the current state of Trump’s personal taxes or that of his family business.

To the contrary, Mattis noted, “I can say authoritatively they have retained some.” Lieberman joined Mattis in his assessment, noting that Israel had “100 percent information that [the] Assad regime used chemical weapons against [Syrian] rebels.” Both Mattis and Lieberman seemed to be channeling assessments offered to reporters two days prior, on April 19, 2017, by anonymous Israeli defense officials that the April 4, 2017 chemical weapons attack on the Syrian village of Khan Shaykhun was ordered by Syrian military commanders, with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s personal knowledge, and that Syria retained a stock of “between one and three tons” of chemical weapons. The Israeli intelligence followed on the heels of an April 13, 2017 speech given by CIA Director Mike Pompeo, who told an audience at the Center for Strategic and International Studies that, once information had come in about a chemical attack on Khan Shaykhun, the CIA had been able to “develop several hypothesis around that, and then to begin to develop fact patterns which either supported or suggested that the hypothesis wasnt right.

President Donald Trump's plan to slash business and household taxes could shift the U.S. economy into higher gear, but it may have one effect the White House would not welcome — interest rates ratcheted higher than expected by a wary central bank. The Trump administration says hundreds of billions of dollars fed into the economy via deep cuts in business taxes and more generous exemptions for individuals will unleash a wave of investment and make the U.S. economy more competitive than ever. But the plan, if approved in the form Trump officials outlined on Wednesday, could add inflationary fuel to an economy already running near full capacity, a risk Federal Reserve officials have been warning about since Trump got elected. Confronted with the prospect of massive cuts that would slash the corporate tax rate to 15 percent from 35 percent and overhaul the personal tax code, Fed officials will need to start debating if they can maintain a measured pace of rate hikes or they might need to move faster, say analysts and economists who follow the U.

It's too early to say whether this will actually help his own personal tax position or not, it will very likely help his own businesses. It is a very red meat, Reagan Republican thing to do. It is trickle-down economics. If you are not very rich, it may not help you too much. Still to come here on Sky News, are sex robots the future?.
