It started in October 2012, but since she does such a good job of cleaning up, neither she nor husband Crispin, want to ...
It would be overly simplistic to imagine a chasm between the haves and have-nots in today's psych-rock landscape, even between the ones with huge production values and the ones sticking it out with streamers and bubblegum. The reason: All the best bands these days carry some degree of scrappiness, no matter how gigantic their approach. Reigning acid champions The Flaming Lips still hold on ...
and the taxes that they do or don't pay which seems to me to be entirely bizarre. Yet it appears that people are taking it entirely seriously. The point is that the committee (or, as I assume was the case, its driving force Senator Carl Levin) noted the difference between Apple's provisions for taxes it would have to pay and the actual amount of cash that it handed over. What makes it ...

Beijing BulletinBeijing Bulletin | Breaking News from Beijing
We work strenuously to bring our readers a completely independent perspective of the news from Beijing. Our software programmers, editors, journalists and affiliated wire services are all dedicated to producing the best journalism possible.
This in a world where conflicts of interest pervade business empires, and political dynasties, and where a shrinking number of media proprietors are growing their interests at the expensive of diversity of media ownership. The Beijing Bulletin is an independent online newspaper. Our focus primarily is to produce the latest breaking stories out of Beijing.
We also cover the nation. Regional news too is a priority, as is our extensive world news coverage. For a Beijing weather report, local news, breaking international headlines, or what's happening in sports, the Beijing Bulletin is for you.
Our Business Centre too is active 24 hours a day, bringing you the latest market updates from key global centres like Tokyo, Sydney, London, Paris, Berlin, and New York. Foreign exchange rates are a regular feature, and we provides a vast range of general interest news covering topics like business travel, seniors, womens interest, and lifestyle stories.
China welcomes "constructive and sensible advice" and suggestions on Tibet's development, Chinese Tibetologists said here.
"There are many scholars studying Tibetan history and culture. We hope the scholars and political leaders from other countries, and all those who care about Tibet would participate in its development, and offer constructive, sensible, feasible advice," said Zhaluo, a scholar from the Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences.
A Chinese delegation of Tibetologists, headed by Zhaluo, visited Cambridge Monday and held academic exchanges with scholars from Mongolia and Inner Asia Studies Unit on the protection of Tibetan language manuscripts, reports Xinhua.
China will stick to regional ethnic autonomy in Tibet, boost legal protection of Tibetan culture and religion and offer comprehensive support for the region, Zhaluo said.
He noted that China will also facilitate the development of social security system, education, housing projects and environmental protection in Tibet.
After a two-day tour in Britain, the Chinese Tibetologists will head to Ireland and Israel for a visit later this week.
