He didn't know so he can't be held responsible. Easy enough.
In all seriousness, yeah... He is the little guy here, Uber most likely knows (or should have known better), I would certainly support Uber being fine significantly here.
So it's Russia's fault you did bad things? What are you going to tell us next, that you can see Russia from your back yard?
What exactly did they reveal? from where I'm sitting nothing, except maybe that she mentioned that "politicians sometimes needs to have a public and a private opinion", which taken out of context sounds sketchy -- in reality no doubt necessary and perfectly fine -- politicians should negotiate compromises on behalf of the people they represent, that sometimes means putting your private positions aside.
It could also be contrived as two-faced, which is bad. The argument Hillary made, namely that politicians presents different arguments to different groups isn't bad either...
Anyways, seems like another non-issue, certainly not a scandal comparable to any of the ones Trump has got going.
Berlusconi didn't cause me to hear anything negative about Italy, so I wonder.
really? We certainly laughed about it... Honestly, it's things like that which makes it hard to take Italy serious... It makes you question if it's even a first world nation.
Well, what did you expect from a trumpism
It sounds like something he would write on twitter...
1. Russia needs to pay for Snowden's food and lodging.
, Russia doesn't pay him anything. They merely allow him to live in Russia.
My company recently offered debiasing training for hiring... Being an arrogant white male chauvinist pig from a country with little diversity I'll admit I was slightly skeptical. But the training was rather academic and presented some interesting perspectives:
1) it's not racism, it's largely bias (it's predominately unintentional)
2) bias is an deviation error in our decision function (we're not making optimal decisions)
3) bias is a part of our culture (it doesn't matter whether you are part of the minority that there is a negative bias towards - everybody is biased - it's in our culture)
In many ways the good news is we're not all racists, but most of us are likely biased (unintentionally). Anyways, doing something to blind ourselves from our own bias is a positive thing, as it just corrects an error in our decision logic that currently causes us to make sub-optimal decisions. Note: and correcting the error in our decision function should ideally lead to more profit, in addition to the much more important human fairness aspects.
To speed up the lines, get rid of the TSA
I doubt that one would be accepted... perhaps as a compromise we just have everybody walk past a bomb sniffing dog... It'll create the same illusion of security.
And if we train the bomb sniffing dogs to be sit really still, then 6 months from now we can replace them with stuffed dogs as a further cost saving measure
It's amazing the morons in EU\EC think they can harass US companies and not evoke a response from the US.
Oh, cry me a river... There are courts in the EU, you are more likely to see your rights honor there than in the US, a country known to deny effective council, torture people and lock up people without trial.
When you workaround taxes in both the EU and US, I for one encourage Vestager to throw the book at you. Really, when a company like Apple decides to test boundaries of the law, Apple should expect the authorities to do exactly the same.
On topic, I'm sure the US generally likes this because without this pressure the money would have stayed in tax shelters. I for one think it's okay to go after companies that are actively speculating against the state, in hope of better future tax breaks...
