Trans-Pacific Partnership is Letting Big Companies Take Over the World

Giant American companies are big enough, don’t you think?

Well, with the Trans-Pacific Partnership they might be able to even gain more
cut trade barriers and set common standards from Vietnam to Canada. So it makes it easier for American companies to get their stuff out. No, PUSH it out.
And it’s THE biggest trade deal in American history. Now, do you think Mickey Mouse will take over the world?

What will this mean for the Global Economy?

Same, I wonder if the U.S. is so worried about debt that they just want to push our products out the easiest and cheapest way. which is good for them I guess, I dunno about how it well help us in the long run with those things you said. job and food is what I’m worried about too... @Butterflyblu
This will be very bad for American jobs and some food prices. I'm not sure that the benefits outweigh the problems here.

Top CEO Salaries Revealed, the World Responds
In a world of 1%, Occupy Wallstreet, and many Americans angry with wealth inequality we got some pretty big news today. In a new just-approved rule the world must come clean about their pay. Companies must now disclose the pay gap between workers and the CEO. USA Today states: The average CEO of Standard & Poor's 500 companies were paid 216 times more than the median employees at their companies, according to a USA TODAY analysis of worker pay data from Glassdoor.com and CEO pay data from S&P Capital IQ. Some CEOs making up to 800 times more than their workers. I’m going to sum up the two responses I’m hearing the most: It’s cool, yo I mean they are the CEOs for a reason right? Now I know exactly how much they make and what it’s like to be them. It’s good that they are sharing this information, because if I believe in a world with less wealth inequality, then I can know what companies are working for that as well! It’s not cool, dawg You are revealing private information, and this rule is useless! The private information that is reveals could lead to a bad reputation for the company, and is also a shaming tactic for the CEOs that worked so hard to get where they are and deserve more pay! Personally, I think it’s actually a good idea to disclose this information. It puts the company in perspective, and really reveals how worker-minded the company says they are. Essentially it puts their money where their mouth is...

2017년 2월 8일 해피뉴스
안녕하세요, 2017년 2월 8일 해피뉴스입니다. 사이클 남녀 단체추발, 하루 만에 또 한국신기록 경신 한국 사이클 대표팀이 아시아선수권대회에서 이틀 연속으로 남녀 단체추발 한국신기록을 경신했습니다. 대표팀은 인도에서 열린 단체추발 본선에서 한국신기록을 세웠는데요, 전날 예선전에서 세웠던 한국신기록을 하루 만에 또다시 뛰어넘은 겁니다. 대한민국 사이클 대표님 파이팅입니다. '도깨비' 열풍에 놀란 대만 총동 "대만산 드라마 키워라" 대만에서 한국 드라마가 인기를 끌자, 대만의 차이잉원 총통이 정부 차원에서 영상 산업을 육성할 것이라며 적극적인 지원 의지를 밝혔습니다. 대만사람들이 설 연휴에 시청한 드라마 순위를 보니까, 도깨비를 포함한 한국 드라마가 상위 8개를 싹쓸이했다고 하는데요, 대한민국 콘텐츠의 수준이 발전한 것 같아서 기분이 좋습니다. 김주성, 아시안게임 금메달 연금 기부…장애아동 3명 지원 농구선수 김주성이 아시안게임 금메달 연금을 기부합니다. 김주성은 2002년 부산아시안게임과 2014년 인천아시안게임에서 금메달을 땄는데요, 지난해부터 연금을 소속팀 연고지인 원주 지역의 소외계층을 돕는데 사용하고 있습니다. 올해는 장애아동 3명을 새롭게 선정해서 1년간 지원하기로 했다고 합니다. 내일은 해피뉴스가 더 많았으면 좋겠습니다. 고맙습니다. ※ 해피뉴스를 제보해주세요! 그날 해피뉴스에 반영하도록 하겠습니다. @hululup @dhsm1028 @hunger18 @jwon0807 @glxy238 @SongMiji @sjparkdct @helloje @ljg352 @chopinjy @mukaeby @ange1111 @ahxhzl621 @wogus7407 @nayaayji @zbrc @liloc11 @yjm9621 @jungmin2005 @KiyoungSung95 @stsopie @dbtmdfl33 @Snowdrops @kimbyungyeon @nasknask @HaEl2030 @yeoidoboy @woosam68 @galaxy5 @ssh0205 @christianos @chanel7250 @jinijini7272 @JuhukAn @istmary @toughgirl @seunghee0122 @dlwhdgur83 @kkulmat @rradiant @NewstarKim @willowhyun @chichitoto @halo2372 @applesm33 @wef7532 @kthw0920 @cecina @oddf @jshbj10 @ssong0v @rinachoi779 @Bora1121 @JiyeonGhim @tahoc0504 @nn880808 @arsjarsj1 @hee334433444 @SeongchanYeo @mku92 @renyu1 @gusdud2100 @dudge961122 @youngin77 @britney99y @dreamian2000 @bignangja @KimHyeYeon @lej6136 @danmidanmi @shinchh @jhkim2857 @swbae12 @HYESUNHA @sarafina @HanwhaV2 @shihzhu @maerye @1107phj @joje87 @msj508 @sw010202 @lianhua @kimuh06911 @rlawlgp916 @bongbong09 @seong2k @MinjaSin @seni7410 @shine82 @sjc715 @vennass @luckytonado @KhanYang @insuk1948 @medirons @onlyhandsome @byun6560 @nanajisu @chloe070607 @rejoice214 @pjuho1945 @JerryL @suhhyogeun @jhkim2857 @tmdgjs5555 @hothand11 @elley0328 @fcuk @GayoungKim1989 @bart @pyk4581
TaskRabbit: How to Become a Tasker
What some have called "a more legit Craigslist" is rapidly becoming a reliable source of income and labor in big cities. TaskRabbit (@TaskRabbit), a trendsetter in the newfangled sharing economy, offers any U.S. citizen with a smartphone the chance to get in on the action. I started tasking as a way to make ends meet. Teaching in the Bronx through a major volunteering platform wasn't very lucrative, so I started scrubbing toilets. It more than doubled my income. (Hold on, how did you get this gig and where do I sign up?) Below, find a step-by-step walkthrough of the application process. 1:: Click "Become a Tasker". Go to www.taskrabbit.com, scroll to the bottom. It's in the "Discover" column. 2:: Click "Start Application". Lost yet? ( ͡ᵔ ͜ʖ ͡ᵔ ) 3:: Connect to a Facebook or LinkedIn account. *Click* 4:: Set your availability. Days are divided into Morning, Afternoon, and Evening. Toggle your availability. You will not be required to work these hours! This is to get a sense of your general availability and can be changed any time. 5:: Determine your work area. Draw your map by clicking the pen symbol at the upper left of the map and tracing your boundaries. This map can be edited any time you'd like. 6:: Upload Your Photo. Use a personable photo. Clients are hiring complete strangers based on a picture and short bio. Choose a photo that makes you look friendly and energetic. Check out this profile photo experiment by Jason Seiden for more about how your profile photo works for (or against) your business. 7:: Complete your bio. Be concise and convincing. That means showing a little personal flavor while proving your work ethic. You will write a "Quick Pitch" for each skill you add to your profile, so this is the time to introduce yourself and establish report. 8:: Do you have a vehicle? This includes bicycle! Having a vehicle (especially a car) opens you to special opportunities and you'll be able to charge higher rates. 9:: Set your Rates & Skills. You control your business (mostly). TaskRabbit lists average rates for every skill so use those to guide your business. Charge higher rates if you have professional expertise or industry tools. Charge lower if you're a beginner. *TaskRabbit charges a 30% service fee for first-time Clients and 15% for return Clients. Make sure you gain repeat customers. Model excellent customer service skills and build your personal brand! A comprehensive list of skills you can list on your profile.
