It is expected that it will increase sales through advertising, like Google — but just how many adverts will users tolerate? This IPO is expected to start a new wave of flotations. However, speculators and financial analysts who remember the dot. Do you use Twitter? If incompan, why not? If you use Twitter, who do you follow?


How does it work

Would you invest in tech shares? In her time at the top, Ahrendts re-positioned Burberry as a high fashion brand. This was the first time a woman had topped the table. Among the company milestones under her leadership was the use of ten-year old Romeo Beckham, son of Victoria and David Beckham, in a famous ad from last year. Ahrendts is certainly no stranger to technology. It seems fitting, therefore, that she is due to move to Apple, to become the senior vice president for retail and online.

What about her successor at Burberry? The question is now whether he will be able to combine his creative role with that of a hard-headed businessman, capable of taking over as CEO.

Are we to believe then, that the company has a clear strategy?

It certainly has a powerful brand. It remains to be seen what the future holds. Will it become a model for 21st century public libraries? The library aims to inspire. Even the architecture has attracted attention, with its eco-friendly design. Bexar County has never had a public library, or even a bookshop. It will have e-readers.

Users are invited to come to the library with an iPad, Android tablet, KindleFire, Nook e-reader…well, the list of devices gets longer by the day!

While some elite schools give every child an incoompany, the school incompayn still contains real books! As ever, the future is still a matter of speculation. Questions to ask your students: Earlier this month, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development OECDwhich is based in Paris, announced plans to crack down on tax avoidance schemes by large multi-nationals. The point plan aims to stop companies artificially moving profits from one country to another, in order to reduce their tax.

The report by the OECD says that global tax rules are out of date. They were created in a pre-Internet age, and were originally designed to ensure that a company does not pay tax in two different countries at the same time. Maybe that was fine once upon a time, but in the age of on-line business, companies today operate in many countries. They use the current laws, it is claimed, incmpany pay tax in no countries at all! If the plans go ahead, they will be the first ever internationally co-ordinated attempt to reform the global taxation system.

The idea behind the proposed reforms is that a company should pay tax in the country incompny the economic activity takes place. At this time of austerity, ibcompany opinion has been quick to criticise the tax practices of several companies in the digital age. Google, Amazon, Apple and Starbucks are regularly ihcompany the spotlight.


But have such firms actually done anything wrong? Spokesmen point out that no laws have been broken. Everything they do is perfectly legal. Is it really fair that multi-nationals avoid paying tax by using these perfectly legal methods?

Earlier this month, the Department of Health launched a new labelling system for food. The on-the-packet label grades food as red, amber or green— the colours displayed by traffic lights. Foods with ‘green’ indicators are healthier than those with ‘red’ ones.

Let’s meet up!

The system shows how much fat, salt and sugar is in each product, and it is claimed, allows shoppers to compare products directly against one another.

But will it really make it easier for consumers to make healthier choices about the foods they eat? The launch comes after years of debate about food-labelling between companies, supermarkets, the government, health associations and consumer groups. Customers, it was found, are confused when more than one scheme is used. Now, all the major 5500 supermarkets Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Morrisons have agreed to use the label on their products.

The UK has high levels of diet-related diseases, such as heart disease. The system is voluntary. Not everyone has joined. The GDA system, they say, gives 50 the information they need to make informed choices about the food they eat. Many farmers see incompqny traffic-light labelling as simplistic.
