Tax Inversion … Huh ?

Clever nick names and acronyms often catch hold. While never certain of the source (many proclaim authorship) a recent “Cool” tag/nick name has garnered much attention. After this quick post, at your next cocktail party or other gathering, you can toss this one out with confidence.

Tax Inversion DefinedTax Inversion

The world is a much smaller place today. Companies are free to merge and purge globally, and they do frequently. More importantly, tax rates are different in different parts of the world, just as they are in different states in the USA.

  1. Merging or buying a publicly traded TAX PAYING company in a different country
  2. Possible relocation of the companies domicile to said country
  3. Lower tax rate/base of the newly acquired company

These are the keys to a Tax Inversion.

Bottom Line: Buy or merge with a company that resides in a country with a lower tax rate than your current…

Parity transformation changes helicity

Originally posted on Renaissance Universal:

This post is the continuation of the Parity Transformation tutorial where I demonstrated the parity transformation in 2D by using the shape of letter L.

Figure (1)

The image to the left of the vertical axis is the reflection of the letter L in the vertical axis. The image below the horizontal axis is the reflection of the letter L in the horizontal axis. Remember, we are restricted to 2D in this example, we are not allowed to rotate through the non-existing 3rd dimension.

In today’s discussion I will use the L shape to demonstrate the parity transformation as well but this time the L shape has an arrow.

Again, notice that in Figure (2) the image to the left of the vertical axis is the reflection of the letter L in the vertical axis. The image below the horizontal axis is the reflection of the letter L in the horizontal…

Carbon is fixed by life!

                The British isles is surrounded by sea water!  He says Rivers flowing from the high ground into the sea.  This water is reused repeatedly, and consequently polluted.  The answer to turning this water into fresh water, is evaporation.

                But heating the water is very energy intensive!  A far better idea is to apply vacuum.  Only one metre of vacuum head causes even ice to evaporate into water vapour.

                This is a basic definition of the enzyme system.  This level of pumping can easily be supplied by a vacuum pump during the day.  During the night off peak electricity is the cheapest answer.

                We pump the water vapour to high storage!  And vented above the reservoir: this requires 1000 times less pumping power than transporting liquid water.

                The water loses all contaminants and salts: it is basically decelerated water.  Plants will love it! …

Who’s really waging the ‘war on science’?

When it comes to attacking climate scientists, the alarmist Left has the market cornered

Guest opinion by Paul Driessen

Global warming alarmists constantly claim they are being “harassed” by climate chaos skeptics. The Climate Armageddon-istas proclaim they are victims, and the American Geophysical Union has even created a “Climate Science Legal Defense Fund,” to pay mounting legal bills that alarmist scientists like Michael Mann have incurred. But the real war on honest science and scientists is being waged by those who have garnered billions of taxpayer, foundation and corporate dollars for alarmist research, and thus have the most to lose when the public finally figures out what’s been going on. No wonder they are in a tizzy.

My article this week explores these issues – primarily by reviewing two cases where scientists really have been singled out, vilified and persecuted: Dr. Patrick Michaels from the University of Virginia, and Dr…
