Unfortunately, our media often times cannot be trusted. During this time of the COVID-19 crisis, the media has been PANIC PEDDLING. This irresponsible journalism is nothing short of Yellow Journalism and propaganda!
This page that I have created will show that mathematics is pure and true; whereas, the media often times is manipulative. Please visit one of these interactive spreadsheets for more information.
The Internal Revenue Service has announced that, as of March 21, 2020, the following tax deadlines have been extended:
The Federal income tax filing due date has been automatically extended to July 15, 2020.
The Federal income tax payment due date has also been deferred to July 15, 2020, without penalties and interest, regardless of the amount owed by the taxpayer. This deferment applies to all taxpayers, including individuals, trusts and estates, corporations and other non-corporate tax filers, as well as those who pay self-employment tax.
The California Franchise Tax Board has announced that, due to the COVID-19 Crisis, tax deadlines have also been extended. These extended due dates are similar to the Federal extended due dates. Please review the following pages for more information:
Last week, we had an ethics discussion in my Accounting II class about the rise of technology. While the discussion was primarily focused on MotoBot as representing the threat of the rise of robots and artificial intelligence that is designed to exceed human performance, we also discussed micro-chipping people and what incentives could be used, or misused, to encourage people to be micro-chipped. Aside from Christian religious arguments (Revelations 13) against micro-chipping people, there are numerous ethical obstacles that anyone contemplating this procedure should consider.
A recent study from John Hopkins University suggests that medical errors are the third leading cause of death in the United States. The only two things that cause more deaths per year in the United States are heart disease and all cancers combined. What this means is that 9.5 percent of all deaths in the United States are caused by medical errors.
Consider the implications… Nearly one out of ten people in the United States who died, died because their medical professionals made an error. Why is this acceptable? Why is the cost of medical care so high, if the quality is often so low? What is being done to improve the medical system? How can consumers protect themselves?
In the SoundCloud podcast, one of the authors, Martin Makary, professor of surgery at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, discusses how settlements often include gag orders that prohibit discussion of the details of the case. Professor Makary notes that in aviation when there is an airplane crash, the crash is investigated, and the analysis is published so that pilots can learn from the mistakes of others. He goes on to note that this is not the case in medicine, and the same mistakes are made over and over again.
