Rockefellers and Disney – The wealthy should pay Higher State Taxes

Rockefellers and Disney – The wealthy should pay Higher State Taxes

Today is Tuesday 22nd March 2016 and we are asking the question should the wealthy pay even higher taxes?

Recent Data gathered shows that in 2015, the United States houses 536 Billionaires and 10.1 million households with over $1 million of investable assets. The IRS has also shown that well over 1 million people in the US earn in excess of $500,000 per annum.
At the same time there are in excess of 45 million people living below the ‘poverty line’ and or receiving ‘food stamps’ – according to official statistics.

So with such a diversity of wealth vs poverty we were intrigued to have heard of an initiative where more than 40 millionaires in New York have asked state lawmakers to take a bigger bite out of their pay cheques.

Yes you’ve guessed it, those philanthropic families such as Disney and the Rockefeller’s are suggesting that those who are in the top 1% of income earners should pay higher State Taxes in New York, with the aim of using the additional revenue to address child poverty, homelessness, ageing bridges, tunnels, waterlines and roads.

So bearing in mind that this may affect some of our subscribers we thought we would ask your opinion on such a proposal. Should the top 1% pay an extra 1% in State taxes? Is this enough? Should they pay even more? Or should one just rely on the philanthropy of individuals to cure such problems. Also why are the Rockefellers involved? A publicity stunt maybe?

Your opinions would be welcome. For what it’s worth, we quite like the idea (though we doubt it will pass), providing of course the money is spent on those problems highlighted and that it is not seen as the ‘thin edge of the wedge’ to increase taxes even more in the future. However, on the other side of the coin, the State should also look at reducing its bureaucracy and spend those savings on those very same measures.

Random YouTube Video Generator

 This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.

 The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.

 Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.

 So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.

 YouTube is an American video-sharing website headquartered in San Bruno, California. YouTube allows users to upload, view, rate, share, add to playlists, report, comment on videos, and subscribe to other users. It offers a wide variety of user-generated and corporate media videos. Available content includes video clips, TV show clips, music videos, short and documentary films, audio recordings, movie trailers, live streams, and other content such as video blogging, short original videos, and educational videos. Most content on YouTube is uploaded by individuals, but media corporations including CBS, the BBC, Vevo, and Hulu offer some of their material via YouTube as part of the YouTube partnership program. Unregistered users can only watch videos on the site, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos and add comments to videos. Videos deemed potentially inappropriate are available only to registered users affirming themselves to be at least 18 years old.

 YouTube and selected creators earn advertising revenue from Google AdSense, a program which targets ads according to site content and audience. The vast majority of its videos are free to view, but there are exceptions, including subscription-based premium channels, film rentals, as well as YouTube Music and YouTube Premium, subscription services respectively offering premium and ad-free music streaming, and ad-free access to all content, including exclusive content commissioned from notable personalities. As of February 2017, there were more than 400 hours of content uploaded to YouTube each minute, and one billion hours of content being watched on YouTube every day. As of August 2018, the website is ranked as the second-most popular site in the world, according to Alexa Internet, just behind Google. As of May 2019, more than 500 hours of video content are uploaded to YouTube every minute.

 YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
