Bloomberg and Johnson, LLP

Jim enters Max Bloomberg’s office.

Jim: Hi, Max. Did you give a thought about my proposition? Can we recognize the expense this year?

Max: Jim, I was thinking about it. And even though it is unlikely that IRS will sanction you, I don’t think it is a good idea to manipulate the returns like this. First of all, if the IRS does finds out about the timing, not only they will prosecute your company, but it will also affect the reputation of my company.

Jim: So what should we do in this case? If we don’t put expense this year, my company will not be able to survive financially.

Max: I have a better idea.

Jim: I’m all ears.

Max: We follow the tax law and do not recognize the expense this year as it should be. You also pay the $100,000 that you will owe on your returns….

Jim (angrily): But I will not be able to pay the repairs costs then!

Max: I have a question to you – how is your relationship with the hotel chain?

Jim: Well, we are in pretty good standing, despite the fact that they are desperately waiting for the generators to be fixed as soon as possible.

Max: I will need you to do some negotiations with them. Here is your proposition to them: they will pay for the repairs that are costing you $250,000. Instead they will deduct this amount from the money they owe you. And to give them a little incentive, you can tell them to deduct a little more than $250,000, so they would owe let’s say $450,000.

Jim: But I will lose then $50,000 on this deal.

Max: No, you won’t. First of all, consider this $50,000 as interest that you would’ve paid if you have taken out the loan. Second, this additional money will be counted as an expense next year, which will reduce your tax liability next year. So, it’s win-win for both you and the hotel chain.
Jim after pausing for a minute: I agree! I will talk to my hotel…...

...First off as mayor of one of the most densely populated cities in America, Mayor Bloomberg should be taking on larger problems then taxing soda. Mayor Bloomberg should be worrying more about the unemployment rate, the high crime rate, and the other many problems that New York city is facing. It doesn’t make sense how a large cup of soda is concerning to a average New York city resident who is facing serious problems. People out there are facing real problems and taxing or removing large sodas won’t help any average New York City resident, so Mayor Bloomberg should focus more on the big picture Furthermore, how exactly will he tax or ban these drinks? The mayor wants to ban only large sodas but not diet soda, smoothies, and sugary juices. This is absolutely absurd, the mayor wants to ban one unhealthy product but not another for absolutely no reason. He proposed this law on his personal opinion that large sodas are unhealthy. He failed to consider that there are other drinks just as unhealthy and some even more unhealthy then soda. So it is not fair to target just one beverage simply because he thinks it’s a good idea. Moreover taxing or removing these large drinks may actually aggravate many people. There are many people out there that enjoy these large drinks so why take it away from them? Also many restaurants, delis, and arenas make a large profit from these large beverages, so taking them away would cut the profit of these organizations. This......

This spending mostly benefits the needs of a small select group despite the fact that the entire community's funds are being used. Alyssa: One possible derivation for the phrase comes from the practice of country stores keeping a barrel of salted pork open and available to the public.

...Script of Lovers' Path : A Tale of Cupid and Psyche Note: credits to Edith Hamilton, author of Greek Mythology Book, other writers on net which is my source of conceptualizing the details, composers and artist of all the music and sound effects for the soundtracks. Prelude : Story Teller: (Forever In Love: Sax Instrumental) Cupid and Psyche is a story about love. It is also about beauty, truth, and goodness, for these are three aspects of love: and it is about death, the hereafter, and rebirth. Its simplicity touches our hearts, and at the same time tantalizes our minds with hints of teachings that youth experienced during the higher degrees of initiation. It deals about human consciousness, with its fall from on high, its captivity in realms of material illusion, its ages-long wanderings, and its metamorphosis as it awakens and recollects with increasing clarity its divine origin and nature. Hence love endeavours to rise, as a butterfly freed from its chrysalis, into higher dimensions where it lives among the immortals.  Cupid and Psyche is indeed a story of love, a love with transcendent power to raise the soul to divine awareness. As such, this is a love story to be cherished during those dark and silent moments that sanctify our lives. : My friends……the beautiful story of Cupid and Psyche…. Music : harp and lyre instrumental ( 30 seconds) SCENE I. (open curtain – stage 1) Narration : (background music : prayer to the goddess)Olympus was the residence of the......

Bloomberg Study

...SWOT, PESTEL, Porter’s 5 Forces and Value Chain Company Overview Bloomberg L.P is a business news corporation based in the United States of America. The company headquarters are located in Midtown Manhattan, New York City. It was founded by Michael Bloomberg in 1982 with his business partners Duncan MacMillan, Merrill Lynch and Thomas Secunda (Bloomberg, 2010). The company runs a business news agency, radio station, website and a business TV channel and prints a business newspaper named Businessweek. It provides financial services, asset management services and stock exchange updates to its subscribers, viewers and associated financial institutes.

However, in 2009, Bloomberg L.P received $6.25 billion revenue from this $16 billion financial industry (The New York Times, 2009). Since the 1990s, Bloomberg has secured a strong position in Wall Street due to its fast and authentic messaging services informing investors about the securities' prices and market trends. The Wall Street investment gurus consider Bloomberg’s stock market graphs before investing in any portfolio or long-term financial products. The company generates more than 85 per cent of its revenues from in-depth financial analysis articles, for which it charges $20,000 per year from its subscriptions (The New York Times, 2009). Its total number of......

...!The script is solid overall and succeeds in presenting a clear, interesting story. The characters are memorable and distinct. I only have a few recommendations for improving the script. !1. The relationship between Jake and Polly !I think it would be nice to have some more background on their relationship together. At some point the reason they are together should be made clear. It would raise the stakes once Antonio becomes involved and allow us to see a more complete character arc for both of them. Without it, some of the dialogue, tension, and conflicts sometimes feel a little bit forced or unrealistic, particularly on page 58, 68, and 77. Particularly on page 77, instead of saying “So I’m selfish now,” maybe Polly can say something acknowledging she made a mistake. That way, Jake will seem more in the wrong once he says something hurtful and it will make even more sense as to why Polly almost hooks up with Antonio. !2. Polly’s Transformation !Much of Polly’s transformation throughout the middle of the script seems a bit shallowly presented—merely through outfit changes and her growing acceptance of Antonio’s taboo behavior and ideas. She mentions that Jake wants to change her, but it seems more that he just wants to bring the old her back. It would be nice to have clarification on that change and why it is so hurtful to her that Jake doesn’t seem to like it. This relates to the tension I addressed in #1. I think there needs to be a moment where Polly fully recognizes...

LEDs are found on your computer case, monitor, printer, modem, CD-ROM drive, and hard drive. What is Inside an LED? LED's are special diodes that emit light when connected in a circuit.

The negative sideof an LED lead is indicated in two ways: 1) by the flat side of the bulb, and 2) by the shorter of the two wires extending from the LED. The negative lead should be connected to the negative terminal of a battery. LED's operate at relative low voltages between about 1 and 4 volts, and draw currents between about 10......

Bloomberg Businessweek Case in the News

...BLOOMBERG BUSINESSWEEK CASE IN THE NEWS [LO 1-1, 1-2, 1-3, 1-6] Costco CEO Craig Jelinek Leads the Cheapest, Happiest Company in the World Joe Carcello has a great job. The 59-year-old has an annual salary of $52,700, gets five weeks of vacation a year, and is looking forward to retiring on the sizable nest egg in his 401(k), which his employer augments with matching funds. After 26 years at his company, he's not worried about layoffs. In 2009, as the recession deepened, his bosses handed out raises. “I'm just grateful to come here to work every day,” he says. This wouldn't be remarkable except that Carcello works in retail, one of the stingiest industries in America, with some of the most dissatisfied workers. On May 29, Wal-Mart Stores (WMT) employees in Miami, Boston, and the San Francisco Bay Area began a weeklong strike. (A Walmart spokesman told MSNBC the strike was a “publicity stunt.”) Workers at an Amazon.com (AMZN) fulfillment center in Leipzig, Germany, also recently held strikes to demand higher pay and better benefits. (An Amazon spokesman says its employees earn more than the average warehouse worker.) In its 30-year history, Carcello's employer, Costco, has never had significant labor troubles. Costco Wholesale (COST), the second-largest retailer in the U.S. behind Walmart, is an anomaly in an age marked by turmoil and downsizing. Known for its $55-a-year membership fee and its massive, austere warehouses stocked floor to ceiling with indulgent portions...

...finance and management experience. Despite some successes, there have been many disappointments, including the Clinch River Breeder Reactor Project, the Synthetic Fuels Corporation and FutureGen. Indeed the difference in how federally supported and private-sector technical development programs are run is so great that private investors and their banks find it difficult to evaluate confidently in the case of the government if required investment criteria have been demonstrated. A private-sector innovation project, if successful, is more likely to result in deployment of technology than a federal one. We do not suggest that the "10-10-10" private-sector mechanism replace action by individual companies or government technology creation programs such as ARPA-E. Governments also have a role in areas where the private sector will not venture such as carbon dioxide sequestration, nuclear waste disposal and traditional approaches to fusion energy. Is it wishful thinking that the energy sector will stand up to such a challenge? In the past, industry consortiums have come together, in some cases with government encouragement and support, to address a common technical challenge. Examples include the Gas Research Institute, the Electric Power Research Institute, the Microelectronics and Computer Technology Corporation, Commercial Satellite Corporation and Sematech. Indeed, federal, state and local governments should support the private-sector effort to create Energy Innovation......
