In One Chart: Where Do State Tax Revenues Come From?🤔⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ The United States federal progressive income tax dates back over 100 years, to the Revenue Act of 1913. Back then, the U.S. received most of its tax revenues from tariffs. Many states have followed the federal government’s lead in collecting a progressive state tax income. ⠀⠀ .⠀⠀ Top 5 Tax Revenue Sources for State Governments⠀⠀ 1. Income taxes: $440.3B (42.7% of total tax revenues)⠀ 2. General sales taxes: $317.4B (30.8% of total tax revenues)⠀ 3. Selective sales taxes: $165B (16% of total tax revenues)⠀ 4. License taxes: $57.4B (5.6% of total tax revenues)⠀ 5. Property taxes: $20.1B (1.95% of total tax revenues)⠀ .⠀⠀ With wages and purchasing power barely budging in years, and a federal debt that has risen to $23 trillion, from $13 trillion in 2010, many are calling for a reconsideration of how the government collects revenue. The Treasury is on pace to borrow more than $1 trillion
В Венеции самое сильное наводнение за последние 50 лет. Мэр города винит изменение климата Уровень воды в Венецианской лагуне поднялся на 1,87 метра. Это связано с сильными продолжительными дождями. С 1923 года, когда начались систематические наблюдения за уровнем воды в этом районе, ситуация была хуже лишь однажды - в 1966 году вода поднялась почти на 1,94 м. Жители города и туристы ходят по улицам в высоких резиновых сапогах. Некоторые туристические достопримечательности сильно затоплены и закрыты для посещений. 📸Reuters, AFP

●Call it Musk's SolarCity flare-up. Click the link in our bio to read more.⠀ ⠀ ●During a heated deposition this past June, Elon Musk finally seemed to admit that his harshest critics were right. Since forcing through the controversial 2016 purchase of SolarCity, the struggling solar sales-and-installation business he co-founded with his cousins, Tesla's chief executive officer has faced almost-constant criticism: The move was called a catastrophe for Tesla, a $2 billion-plus bailout of a debt-saddled company of which Musk himself was chairman and the largest shareholder. Despite plummeting sales and substantial layoffs in the solar division under Tesla after the merger, Musk has fervently defended the SolarCity acquisition, once calling it “blindingly obvious” and a “no-brainer.”⠀ ⠀ ●But in a stunningly rare moment of contrition, Musk expressed regret over the decision at his deposition, part of a class-action shareholder suit that’s gained momentum in recent
No doubt it was a perfect call.
The American people deserve to know the truth. And it's time to show Trump that no one is above the law—not even the president of the United States.
Did you know microplastics are intentionally added to all kinds of products? Personal care products that contain plastic polymers include deodorant, shampoo 🧴, shower gel, lipstick 💄, facial masks, shaving cream, sunscreen, insect repellent, moisturizers, anti-wrinkle cream, baby 👶 care products, eye shadow, mascara, hair spray & more. In some cases, these products are made of more than 90% plastic. The good 👏🏼 news is that sustainable, ocean-friendly alternatives are available. You no longer need to contribute to the mass of microplastics entering the ocean 🌊 through personal care products. By demanding plastic-free products and materials, the industry will have to respond. Join the "What's in Your Bathroom?" 🛀🏽challenge by going through your personal care or cosmetic products that contain plastic & switch to sustainable alternatives such as bamboo toothbrushes and shampoo bars 🧼!

[A Work in Progress] Happy Sunday everyone! In the last 3 months, I visited this place several times and took quite a few pictures and here's the first bunch from those shoots. I had multiple cropping options for the first one and I'm still second-guessing my decision (This happens all the time and honestly, it needs to stop😂). The 2nd one is probably my favorite. Actually, it is going to be a part of a photo-series titled "Neighborhood" (which I'm currently working on). 3rd one is not a kind of photo that I would normally share but I liked it a lot, so there you go 😁 The 4th and the 5th are very similar to the 1st one. They were taken 2 months earlier from slightly different vantage points. I hope you enjoy them all. Let me know which one you like the best. Peace!
~ The Rain Valley ~ ⠀ The conditions in this rather anonymous valley on Tenerife were quite extraordinary on this particular afternoon. A constant flow of rain shafts were dancing all over this valley mixed with up with incoming beams of light. The backlit rain and fast moving low clouds created a lovely atmospheric feel that was changing by the minute. ⠀ Please swipe for the full size. I chose to make a 3:2 crop here as I felt the original 16:9 format was simply too small to be appreciated here.
