‘We Need To Talk About Dad’, will be going out on Channel 4 this Monday 21st November at 10.20pm. Please try and catch it if you can. http://www.channel4.com/programmes/we-need-to-talk-about-dad The Johnson family appeared to have it all after two decades of happy marriage: professional success, a beautiful house in Kent, flaxen-haired children… Locals jokingly referred to them as a ‘Sunday Supplement Family’. But one day Nick told his wife he had a surprise for, led her blind-folded into the garden, and committed an act of violence far worse than anything they could have imagined. Henry, who was just 16 at the time, became a witness to the crime. WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT DAD meets the Johnsons as they reunite for Christmas, fulfilling the dreams of the youngest son Felix who – until now – has been sheltered from the events of that day. Henry’s need to confront what happened sees each of them come face to face with the mystery of the attack, and the impact it has had on their lives. Best Wishes, Elizabeth The Internet home of We Need to Talk About Dad at Channel 4; includes We Need to Talk About Dad Series and Episode Guides.

My Views on Corporations & Taxes by Mark Cuban Nov 15th 2011 10:23PM
I understand why CEOs of public corporations take advantage of every opportunity to condemn taxes. The lower the tax rate, the greater the after tax profit. The greater the after tax profit, the greater the share price. The greater the share price, the closer they come to or exceed “their number”. You know, the number. The share price times the number of shares they effectively own when everything is awarded and vested. It is the number they need to be able to live the life they want to become accustomed to.
After all, the ONLY reason you take the job as CEO of a company you were not a founder of is for the money. Period end of story. Lower taxes puts more money in your pocket. If you want an example of how corporate tax rates are important to CEO wealth, just look at how often public companies manage their effective tax rates to move their earnings per share numbers.
I can tell you with complete confidence that when a company’s stock is moving, for whatever reason, the CEO (and most employees with a lot of effective stock ownership) is marking to market his/her holdings and calculating his net worth AT LEAST once a week if not more. Stock is up 10pct, big smile. Stock is down 10pct. , don’t let your dog near him/her. So we know why every CEO claims that lower tax rates are critical. But does it really impact how their companies are run ?
1. Competition has a far greater impact on operating a business than the tax rate Does the tax rate have anything to do with the business’s ability to compete ? Some may argue that if the tax rate is lower, the company may have some more cash to compete with. But then so would the competition. So that argument doesn’t hold up. The reality is that most industries are a dog fight. You have competition and you crush your brain and those of everyone around you looking for ways to get an edge. If you find a way to better compete, you are going to leverage whatever resources you have available to you in order to do so. You are not going to look at your tax rate first. You are not going to avoid making a decision because your taxes are TOO DAMN HIGH. You are going to do what you can to compete. Taxes be damned. Rule #1 of business is to stay in business.
2. Companies hire because they need people to compete and keep customers happy, not because of lower tax rates The same principle applies to hiring. It is incredibly expensive to hire people. You hire people because you need them. You don’t hire them because your taxes are lower. You don’t hire them because you just repatriated cash from a foreign country. You hire them because you have a specific need for them. They are going to help you become more profitable, more productive, more competitive, whatever the reason. No one hires people simply because they have some more cash in the bank.
3. Companies invest their cash because its strategic I wonder if Amazon hesitated in developing and releasing the Fire because they were concerned about corporate tax rates ? I wonder if Dish looked at corporate tax rates before they determined the strategic value of buying spectrum. Think Apple looked at tax rates before it decided to open their stores ? Did McDonalds bring back McRibs because the tax rate was low enough ? Companies make strategic decisions every day. They invest because they want to grow the company. They invest because they are competitive and they want to win. They invest because they want to make more money. They don’t invest because they just had their tax rates lowered.
4. The exception that proves the rule Not all capital allocation is strategic. Some is purely financial. There are those that look to buy and invest in companies on purely a financial basis. These are the financial engineers. There is a place in the country for financial engineers. There is a place for those who invest in companies and try to make them more efficient and productive in hopes of getting a sufficient return on their investment either through the return of capital from the company or from the sale or IPO of a company. Nothing wrong with this. And every single financial engineer will also tell you that tax rates are important. The tax rate impacts their cash returns. While these guys may have big pockets to lobby for lower taxes, the reality is that they are a tiny, tiny percentage of companies and jobs. And trust me, they are not going to use lower taxes to increase employment. They are there merely to goose returns.
Bottomline is that while CEOs of public companies and financial engineers have good reasons to ask for lower taxes, I don’t see lower taxes creating jobs. I am not suggesting that increasing taxes is a good thing for companies. That is a topic for another day.
WCN Transmedia Group Showcase OWN’s Sweetie Pies is a Hit. You have got to love this show. Down home good Cooking and Straight Talk. Ok I cover a lot of television as much as 12 hours a day as I am working I channel surf and look for what right about television and a lot that’s wrong. Having more than 50 years as a customer of the medium of Television and not TV Everywhere trust me, I have a lot of experience as a customer turn media executive.
OWN has had a slow start as far as ratings go. Okay but no network was born overnight. You can just taste the good cooking coming out of Sweetie Pies and OMG Sweetie is a mess. If you have ever been to NYC and eaten at Sylvia’s you know its good food and Straight Talk. Sweeties reminds us in the Black Community how Soul Food is the foundation of the Black Family and Sweeties Pies is a great part of the Oprah Winfrey Network and last night after watching a few episodes I decided to let the world and Oprah know. Keep up the good work.
From Master Class to Life Class to Miss Represented there is something special happening at OWN and the audience will catch up.
Meet the Cast of Sweetie Pies and tune in when you can. Oprah has learned alot about IPTV via her Life Class experience. I hope sees the power of IPTV as she balanced Live TV and Live Streaming. One word about Transmedia Brandcasting in case Oprah reads this. Transmedia Brandcasting can Monetize Oprah’s Favorite things and WCN would like a shot at creating Transmedia Revenue Share Communities with OWN. 30 Second Commercials are the life’s blood of TV but a pain in the ass on the web.

The I’m BOOKed!™ Initiative is a grass roots reading campaign created by DreamMart International, LLC to get kids hooked on books. In 2003 a study in 37 countries by the Programme for International Student Assessment found that the most important factor for academic success was the amount of time pupils spent reading books, magazines, newspapers and websites. But, reading books makes the biggest difference, according to this and other studies. So, we are bringing together strategic business, education, faith & philanthropic partners to pilot this initiative in Atlanta’s Pittsburgh Community.
Our initial goal is to identify 50 youth, ages 10-17, from Gideons Elementary, Parks Middle & Carver High – all Pittsburgh schools. We are issuing the I’m BOOKed!™ 30-Day Challenge to read a book and receive $100! We want to harness the power of inspiration to create a nation of book addicts…starting in Atlanta, Georgia! But, it doesn’t stop there. In addition to a love of reading, the I’m BOOKed!™ Initiative is designed to teach productivity and asset management, all vital skills for success in learning and life.
DreamMart International, LLC is helping people to connect to their dreams and each other to make a difference. The ability to dream is a fundamental human endowment that fuels achievement. We not only learn from books, but books can inspire us to dream. Will you join us to make the dreams of Pittsburgh youth a reality?
Let’s teach the students in Pittsburgh Community Schools that It Pays to Read!
Dream Mart International, LLC has partnered with Morehouse Senior, Rodney Walker, to teach kids that It Pays to Read. Dream Mart’s I’m BOOKed!™ Reading Initiative is a grass-roots effort started by Dream Mart International, LLC to get students hooked on books in spite of the academic challenges they may face.
Rodney Walker, a Chicago native, is the founder and CEO of Forever Life Music and Video Production; a company that creates custom videos and songs for special events. With the support and guidance from the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE), Rodney has competed for and won various business plan competitions. In 2008, Rodney placed second in the NFTE National Competition in New York City. Currently, his company serves as a work-study program for Morehouse College. Along with his production company, Rodney also travels around the country to speak at public high schools and conferences about the importance of education and entrepreneurship for minority youth.
Given the obstacles placed before him as a foster child, Rodney struggled academically and socially in school. From kindergarten on, he was placed in special education, repeated the 4th grade due to poor academic performance, and finished his freshman year of high school with a 1.3 GPA. However, after joining the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship, a youth business program of high school students, Rodney became motivated to start a business using the skills learned in the course. With the help of NFTE’s mentors and teachers, he became further motivated to apply himself academically. He graduated from high school with a 2.4 GPA, and was accepted to Morehouse College on academic probation. Since being accepted, he remained determined and focused. He joined tutoring programs, study groups, and campus organizations to help with his studies and course work.
Today, Rodney is a college senior. He is a JP Morgan Scholar, UNCF Scholar, and an honor student, set to graduate in the top 1% of his class. And this Saturday, October 8th, Walker will speak to 50 students from Atlanta’s Pittsburgh Community who accepted the I’m BOOKed!™ 30-Day Challenge during the I’m BOOKed!™ Launch Party on Saturday, October 8, 2011 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. at the Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Corps Community Center at 965 Dewey Street SW, Atlanta, Georgia 30310.
