The Myth of Shareholder Capitalism - Harvard Business Review

The Myth of Shareholder Capitalism - Harvard Business Review

reblog from matt.

". It turns out that the law provides a surprisingly clear answer: Shareholders do not own the corporation, which is an autonomous legal person. What’s more, when directors go against shareholder wishes—even when a loss in value is documented—courts side with directors the vast majority of the time. Shareholders seem to get this. They’ve tried to unseat directors through lawsuits just 24 times in large corporations over the past 20 years; they’ve succeeded only eight times. In short, directors are to a great extent autonomous.

And yet, in an important 2007 article in the Journal of Business Ethics, 31 of 34 directors surveyed (each of whom served on an average of six Fortune 200 boards) said they’d cut down a mature forest or release a dangerous, unregulated toxin into the environment in order to increase profits. Whatever they could legally do to maximize shareholder wealth, they believed it was their duty to do. "

Texas goes large with supersize SSD • Channel Register

Texas goes large with supersize SSD • Channel Register

5TB!

"This product comes as a 2U rack shelf and uses single level cell (SLC) flash. It is, TMS claims, the highest capacity SLC SSD on the market, as well as the fastest at 250,000 sustained I/Os per second (IOPS) for random reads and random writes. The throughput is 3GB per second and latency 80 microseconds for writes. Just to knock a nail in the hard disk drive coffin for apps the RamSan-620 is targeted at, TMS says this is 60 times less than a high-performance HDD."

Nigerian e-mail scammers jailed | CNET News.com

"The sentencing of Emmanuel Nwude to 25 years and Nzeribe Okoli to 12 years follows negotiations in which they agreed to plead guilty to 16 of the 91 original charges, and to forfeit assets worth at least $121.5 million to the victims of the scam.

A third fraudster, Amaka Anajemba, was sentenced to two and a half years in prison in July after agreeing to return $48.5 million to the Sao Paolo-based Banco Noroeste, which collapsed after the theft."

ESPN Outdoors -- Archer tags early-season mega-bull in N.M.

"When that opportunity finally came, Harber was able to thread his arrow through one lung and liver.

After watching the bull stop at 75 yards with the arrow buried up to its fletching, the giant wapiti slowly disappeared into the dark timber.

That led Harber and his guide to make a decision to ease out of the area and to give the elk time to expire.

While that decision to not push the bull undoubtedly led to a nervous night of sleep for Harber, he needn't have worried."

I'm quite inebraited.. But I made it home safe.. Thanks... But while at your fine establishment I had a very odd encounter.. the couple ahead of me in the drive through ordered $14 worth of food for two people... I can't help but wonder..
how could two "normal" human beings order $14 worth of food at Jack in the Box? That's atleast 20 tacos and some delux-awesome shakes to wash it down... Not possible for normal humans...

"Have you ever noticed that the people who go to the extreme of customizing their $100,000 cars with the biggest and most blinged out wheels, custom alligator skin interiors, and even steering wheels encrusted with diamonds always seem to have the same 12” woofers as the 16 year-old kid down the street? For these people, the word “excess” doesn't cross their minds when it comes to customizing their car. So, MTX has crafted an all new, 22" SuperWoofer for anyone who's got what it takes to go to the extreme—the MTX Audio JackHammer T9922. "

NASA - Voyager Enters Solar System's Final Frontier: "Image Right:The Voyagers are identical but on different flight paths. Voyager 1 is about 8.7 billion miles from the Sun and traveling at a speed of 3.6 AU per year while Voyager 2 is about 6.5 billion miles away and moving at about 3.3 AU per year. One 'AU' equals the distance between the Sun and Earth, or 93 million miles. In July 2004 scientists used Voyagers to track a solar blast to the edges of the solar system. Credit: NASA/Walt Feimer"

Wow, 3.3 x 93 million miles, a year. That's tight.

Alaska Village Moves from Diesel to 'Micro-Nuke'

"The design is described as inherently safe, but it does have one riskier feature: It uses liquid sodium, not water, to draw heat away from the core, so the heat can be used to make steam and then electricity.
Designers chose sodium so they could run the reactor about 200 degrees hotter than most power reactors, but still keep the coolant depressurized. (Water at that temperature would make steam at thousands of pounds of pressure a square inch.) The problem is that if sodium leaks, it burns."

Raimi says that 'This is the project I really want to make. The remake can belong to someone else, but part 4 will be a continuation of the original'. Ted and Sam Raimi have begun writing Part 4, and will be developing it for production later this year. Bruce Campbell and Tapert will both be involved."

Wes Anderson and the Problem with Hipsters,
Or What Happens When a Generation Refuses to Grow Up

The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou


What will the hipsters be remembered for? The last few months I have raised this question in Brooklyn, on the sagging couches of its Brownstones and over the din of the glowing jukeboxes in its dives. The most common answer is “Nothing.” New York Rock? So much retread. The hipsters’ championing of vintage clothing? Sorry, you can’t be remembered for remembering. The embrace of white-trash chic--trucker hats and so on? Interesting but evil. Though not authentically evil. The hippies had Charles Manson, one friend noted. “We haven’t even produced a decent serial killer.”

Wired News: Genetic HIV Resistance Deciphered

Genetic resistance to AIDS works in different ways and appears in different ethnic groups. The most powerful form of resistance, caused by a genetic defect, is limited to people with European or Central Asian heritage. An estimated 1 percent of people descended from Northern Europeans are virtually immune to AIDS infection, with Swedes the most likely to be protected. One theory suggests that the mutation developed in Scandinavia and moved southward with Viking raiders.

MSNBC - Bill would allow deduction for sales tax: "And don't worry about saving up hundreds of receipts to prove how much you paid in sales tax on clothing, electronics, appliances, meals and other everyday purchases. Taxpayers will be able to estimate their sales tax deduction by using Internal Revenue Service tables that will adjust for income, family size and local tax rates."
Washington Taxes > Industry Specific Guides > Restaurant
Washington Taxes > Industry Specific Guides > Restaurant > Collecting Sales Tax: "Washington law exempts most grocery type foods from retail sales tax. However, the law does not exempt “prepared foods,” “soft drinks” or “dietary supplements.” Therefore, businesses that sell these “foods” must collect sales tax. "
Washington Taxes > Retail Sales > What are some examples of services subject to sales tax?
Statistics & Reports > Tax Reference Manual 2002

RETAIL SALES TAX
RCW 82.08
Tax Base Selling price of tangible personal property and certain services purchased at retail
(i.e. by consumers). In general, the tax applies to goods, construction including
labor, repair of tangible personal property, lodging for less than 30 days, telephone
service, and participatory recreational activities. Some personal and professional
services, such as landscape maintenance and physical fitness, are taxable. The basic
definition of items and transactions subject to sales tax appears in RCW 82.04.050.
(NOTE: use tax applies to taxable items used within the state, if retail sales tax was
not paid; see following section.)
