America’s super-rich pay negligible taxes The 25 richest Americans, Bezos, Jeff including Michael Bloomberg and Elon Musk, pay a miniscule tax rate --and sometimes almost nothing -- according to a study conducted by news outlet ProPublica. The research is based on IRS data for the period 20142018; it says the tax outgo of the super-rich was almost negligible, despite their col- lective net worth rising by more than $400bn in the same period. The report highlights the techniques that the wealthy often use to reduce their tax bills, including taking advantage of a complex web of loopholes and deductions that are perfectly legal and can significantly reduce — or erase — tax lia, bility reports the New York Times. That includes borrowing huge sums of money backed by enormous ! $ stock holdings. Those loans are not taxed and the interest that the executives pay on the money can often be deducted from their tax bills. In 2007, Jeff Bezos, the chief execof utive Amazon, paid nothing in federal income taxes even as his company’s stock price doubled. Four years later, as his wealth swelled to $18 billion, he reported losses and received a tax credit of $4,000 for his children, according to ProPublica. Likewise, Tesla's Musk paid nothing in 2018. A White House spokeswoman called the leak "illegal" and indicated that the FBI and tax authorities were investigating the matter. ProPublica indicated it has more secrets up its sleeve and would release further details over coming weeks.

Day The Southern Ocean is a vital home for marine ecosystems and a focal point for the southern hemisphere. It directly surrounds Antarctica, extending from the continent's coastline to 60 degrees south latitude, excluding the Drake Passage and Scotia Sea. The ocean's borders touch three of the four other oceans that exist on Earth — the Atlantic, Indian and Pacific. But what makes the Southern Ocean different from the others is that rather than being largely defined by the land that surrounds it, this body of water is unique because of a current that lies within. This current brings with it colder and less salty water than what is found just north of the region. This current, estimated to be approximately 34 million years old, is what makes the ecology of the Southern Ocean so distinct, providing a unique habitat for thousands of species, National Geographic said in its magazine. $ ' %"% $$ $ ! & "# $' " # followed by IIT Delhi at 185 and IISc Bengaluru at 186 in the overall university . rankings globally Though IIT Bombay dipped five places this year to 177 from its 2021 rank of 172, it is India's top-ranked institution for the fourth consecutive year at the QS World University Rankings.
