FIGURE

 

 

” In the five seconds it has taken you to read this sentence, Samsung has earned a staggering $32,430.

This converts to £20,200 and is what the average university graduate in the UK earns in a year.

To highlight the obscene amounts of money the world’s major tech companies earn, a money-saving website has created an interactive infographic that shows exactly how much each firm makes in real time. 

The site, designed by UK-based Happier, is also interesting because it highlights how successful the companies are in comparison to one another.

Phone makers Samsung, Apple, BlackBerry and Nokia all make the list, as do other hardware and software manufacturers Microsoft, Google, HP, Dell, Foxconn, IBM, Oracle and Cisco.  

Facebook is the only social network on the list, earning $230 (£143) a second, and Amazon is the only online retailer and earns $1,996 (£1,247).

Apple is in second place, earning $4,539 (£2,835) per second, with BlackBerry floundering at the bottom of the list earning a relatively small $205 (£128) every second.”

 

Wow !

Pictured: Boy, 8, Who Was Waiting To Give His Runner Father A Hug At Finish Line Is Named As One Of Three Boston Marathon Bombing Victims Along With Woman In Her Twenties While 144 Are Injured And 17 Left In Critical Condition

 

 

 

” An eight-year-old boy waiting at the finish line to give his father a hug was among three people killed and more than 144 injured when two explosions rocked the Boston Marathon.

Martin Richard was standing with his mother and sister, who both suffered horrific injuries when bombs hidden in rubbish bins exploded within seconds of each other during the Patriots’ Day bank holiday.

Boston police closed off the city as a ‘danger zone’ as witnesses described the ‘unspeakable horror’ of body parts flying through the air and shoes that ‘still had flesh in them’.

At least 17 of the injured are in a critical condition and it is thought as many as 30 victims may have needed amputations or major corrective surgery on maimed limbs.

Today, the United States remained on full alert after the worst terrorist outrage since the World Trade Centre towers were destroyed by hijacked jets on September 11, 2001.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Operation Overkill: Armed Cops Swoop On Action Man Looking For A Mortar After Owner Posts Picture Of TOY Weapon On Facebook

 

Cause of alarm? The Facebook profile picture of Mr Driscoll showing an action man and his model mortar

 

 

” There were five police officers at the door, two of them carrying submachine guns.

And they were ready to smash the door open so it was fortunate Ian Driscoll was in when they pulled up outside his home.

They had come in search of a deadly mortar tube – spotted in the background of a picture that Mr Driscoll had posted on Facebook.

Mr Driscoll, 43, did indeed have a mortar in the home and promptly showed it to the squad.

It was a toy.

After inspecting the model mortar, the rather embarrassed team of officers apologised and took their leave.

‘I couldn’t believe someone thought it was real,’ said Mr Driscoll, a model maker, at his home in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire.

‘It’s tiny and quite clearly a toy. I can’t stop laughing. I think it’s hilarious.’

The mortar, or at least part of it, was featured in a picture Mr Driscoll took of an Action Man figure and a toy Alsatian dog.

He posted the picture on Facebook ‘as a laugh’ because he says he looks rather like the Action Man figure and owns an Alsatian.

The mortar was near to a TV remote control which showed how small it was. Nevertheless, someone called in the police.”

 

Just how cowardly have we in the west become ? 

 

 

 

 

 

Workers Making $30,000 Will Take A Bigger Hit On Their Pay Than Those Earning $500,000 Under New Fiscal Deal

 

 

” Middle-class workers will take a bigger hit to their income proportionately than those earning between $200,000 and $500,000 under the new fiscal cliff deal, according to the nonpartisan Tax Policy Center.

Earners in the latter group will pay an average 1.3 percent more – or an additional $2,711 – in taxes this year, while workers making between $30,000 and $200,000 will see their paychecks shrink by as much as 1.7 percent – or up to $1,784 – the D.C.-based think tank reported.

Overall, nearly 80 percent of households will pay more money to the federal government as a result of the fiscal cliff deal. “
