Get Ready To Buy Google, Apple, Facebook And Amazon

France just imposed a 3% tax on the French revenues of Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. But these companies are not going to be any less profitable because of the tax. If Google, Apple, Facebook or Amazon sells-off because of the new French digital tax, get ready to buy.

As with all corporate taxes, there is a widespread misunderstanding as to who actually pays the tax. Since in order to stay in business, customers have to cover all of a company’s costs — including taxes — it is customers who ultimately pay the taxes.

Suzanne Eaton, US scientist, found dead in WW2 bunker on Crete – BBC News

Police on the Greek island say Suzanne Eaton, who was there for a conference, died of suffocation.

Suzanne Eaton, who went missing more than a week ago after going on a run, died of suffocation, police confirmed to the BBC.

They say they are investigating the case as a criminal act.

The 59-year-old molecular biologist from the world-renowned Max Planck Institute in Germany had been attending a conference on the island.

She was found on rough and rocky terrain inside the abandoned bunker about 10km (six miles) away from where she was last seen, according to police in the port city of Chania, where the conference was being held.

She was reported missing on 2 July and a large search effort was launched.

Six days later, her body was discovered by two locals exploring the bunker, which is a system of manmade caves used by the Nazis during the occupation of Crete in World War Two.

Italy volcano: eruption on island of Stromboli, evacuations begin – YouTube

A volcano erupted on the Italian island of Stromboli on Wednesday, the National Institute of Geophysics and Vulcanology said.…

The volcano is a popular travel destination; tourists often climb to the 924-metre summit to look at the crater which routinely spews small pieces of molten rock into the sky. It was unclear if anyone was near the crater at the time of the blast.

Tourists, terrified when ash started rising high into the sky, threw themselves into the sea, ANSA said.

Carmelo Saia, a tourist, told Euronews that he was at the beach in Lipari, an island close to Stromboli, on holiday with his girlfriend when the volcano erupted.

“We were having lunch and all of a sudden we saw everybody turning their heads in the same direction. We saw a big cloud rising up in the sky and immediately understood it was an eruption from Stromboli. Some people panicked and left the beach but we stayed as the situation seems under control.”

Fiona Carter

“We saw the explosion from the hotel. There was a loud roar,” Michela Favorito, who works in a hotel on the island, told Reuters. “We plugged our ears and after this a cloud of ash swept over us. The whole sky is full of ash, a fairly large cloud,” he said.

Witnesses shared their experiences of the eruption on Twitter.

Stromboli is a small island in the Mediterranean Sea, off the north coast of Sicily, and is a popular tourist destination. ANSA also reported that the volcano was spewing out red hot rocks, and new lava spouts are creeping down the volcano onto the island.

Carmelo Saia,

According to an Aeolian island travel website, Stromboli has been erupting since records began. The Romans called it the “Lighthouse of the Mediterranean”. Locals refer to the volcano as “iddu”, a dialect word meaning “him”.

The island was the setting for a 1950 movie starring Ingrid Bergman and, with other islands in the Aeolian archipelago, and has become a favourite location in recent decades for holiday homes for the rich and famous.

ECB’s Mario Draghi says European economy may need more stimulus. Trump hits back on Twitter – CNN

London (CNN Business)Europe signaled Tuesday that it could return to printing money to boost its flagging economy, a potential reversal of policy that drew an immediate rebuke from President Donald Trump.

European Central Bank President Mario Draghi said in a speech that he was open to boosting monetary stimulus if economic conditions in Europe don’t improve.
He said that the ECB stands ready to use all tools at its disposal, which could include interest rate cuts and the revival of quantitative easing, which involves creating new money to buy assets such as government bonds.
“In the absence of improvement, such that the sustained return of inflation to our aim is threatened, additional stimulus will be required,” he said in Sintra, Portugal.

Rebuilding Notre Dame: The next steps for Paris’s famous cathedral – Washington Post

What experts say will need to happen to save Notre Dame

Officials began inspecting the damage of Notre Dame Tuesday. They declared the cathedral structurally sound while identifying “some vulnerabilities,” according to French Deputy Interior Minister Laurent Nunez. Specifically, the vault and gable of the north transept were of concern. Inspectors are also worried about structural damage that may be hidden.

Kirk Martini, a professor at the University of Virginia School of Architecture with a doctorate from the University of California at Berkeley in structural engineering, said the transept is probably the greatest vulnerability. To ensure the structure is stable, additional shoring may be necessary after the full extent of the damage is assessed.
