Google search manipulation starves some websites of traffic

Date: Tue, 16. April 2013 00:10:08
Google's placement of its own flight-finding service in search results is resulting in lower click-through rates for companies that have not bought advertising, according to a study by Harvard University academics.The study provides data for how Google's placement of its own services amid "organic" search results may hurt competitors, which is the focus of an ongoing antitrust case between Google and the European Union.How paid and non-paid search results are displayed has a powerful sway over consumers, the study found. Ben Edelman, an associate professor at Harvard Business School, and Zhenyu Lai, a Harvard doctoral candidate, looked at when Google began inserting its own Flight Search feature, launched in December 2011, into search results.They found that Google chose to display Flight Search depending on a user's search terms. When Flight Search was displayed, it takes a top position in the search results, pushing lower down non-paid search results.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

IRS paid record $125 million to whistleblowers in 2012: report

Date: Wed, 13. February 2013 13:12:26
(Reuters) - The Internal Revenue Service paid a record $125.4 million in 2012 to whistleblowers who provided evidence of tax cheating, including a massive payout to a former employee of Swiss bank UBS AG, according to an IRS report made public on Wednesday. The IRS whistleblower program has been criticized for moving too slowly and putting inadequate resources behind its efforts, causing whistleblowers to grow reluctant to file claims. The program was overhauled by Congress in 2006 amid such criticism. The report marks an increase in awards paid from $8 million in 2011. ...

Valve now allows devs to charge for Steam Workshop mods, community riots

Date: Thu, 23. April 2015 16:47:00
Update, 3:40 PST: Aaaaand of course there's already a petition to try and get Valve to reconsider paid mods. It's already received nearly 4,000 signatures which is pretty impressive, though Valve of course has no obligation to pay any attention. I expect this experiment to continue for a while, regardless of any animosity by the community.Original story below: Draw up a list of the Top 5 Reasons to be a PC Gamer and you?d better make sure mod support is at the top. The ability for the PC community to come together and fix games that are broken, extend the lifespan of old games, or even convert games to entirely new purposes is the best reason to stay away from consoles. Just last week I replayed Max Payne (released in 2001) and used both a community patch that fixes some audio glitches and a mod to play in widescreen. Amazing.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

Size matters: Study shows big difference in office visit reimbursements

Date: Mon, 9. January 2017 17:10:18
By Gene Emery (Reuters Health) - An analysis of 15.3 million doctor office visits shows that physicians get paid significantly more if they are part of a large provider group, while insurance companies can dramatically reduce what they pay doctors for those visits if they've consolidated their share of the marketplace. The study in Health Affairs puts some hard numbers to a basic economic concept of market dominance and the bargaining that accompanies it. Just increasing their market share to 5 to 15 percent reduced the average amount the insurer paid to $70, or 18 percent less.

Amazon paid $15 million for Woody Allen's new movie

Date: Thu, 25. February 2016 00:25:42
Amazon is in the midst of a TV and movie spending spree, an apparent attempt to beat out streaming rivals like Netflix and Hulu by outbuying them. Amazon Studios has done deals with directors Jim Jarmusch, Spike Lee, Todd Solondz, and Terry Gilliam that will see their movies arrive on Amazon Prime, and has spent lavishly on its own range of original TV shows, including The Man in the High Castle. Most recently it landed the rights to Woody Allen's still-untitled next movie, in a deal that The Hollywood Reporter said today was worth $15 million upfront ? an extravagantly expensive offer 15 times the amount Sony Pictures Classic paid for Allen's last movie. There's no guarantee Allen's Amazon debut will be a commercial success ? the director is particularly divisive figure, following on from sexual abuse allegations by his adoptive daughter, and his movies are hardly summer blockbusters at the best of times.

Brazil executive says he paid $36.1 million to Petrobras: media

Date: Sun, 19. April 2015 02:18:32
A top construction company executive has told investigators he paid $36.1 million in bribes to executives at state oil giant Petrobras, which is being rocked by Brazil's biggest ever corruption scandal, local media reported. Eduardo Leite, vice president at the construction firm Camargo Correa, told prosecutors the bribes stretched from 2007-2012. The construction firm is allegedly one of those that paid executives at Petrobras to give them contracts in exchange for overcharging. Brazil's President Dilma Rousseff chaired the Petrobras board during much of the period when the alleged corruption took place, though she has not been implicated in the scandal.
