A 40 per cent tax rate on multinational companies that use overseas tax havens to avoid paying tax in Australia was passed by the Senate last night. The diverted profits tax (DPT), also known as the “Google tax”, will begin on 1 July, 2017.
Dear Lifehacker, In both my work and personal life, I'm supposed to delegate responsibilities to others. Usually, this is great, because it helps get things done, but some of my co-workers and family just don't do a good-enough job, whether it's incomplete reports or lousy laundry skills. Outside of doing everything myself or firing/no longer working with these folks, what can I do?
Mac: If you're a fan of Night Shift on your iPhone, or F.lux on your Mac, you'll be happy to know that Apple's rolling out an update to macOS today that adds the time-based colour-shifting feature to your Mac.
United Airlines made headlines around the world today after a gate agent refused to board two young girls on a flight to Minneapolis because they were wearing leggings. The choice of attire was deemed "improper" for United representatives, even though both passengers were children.
Despite almost universal condemnation and boycott threats from celebrities, United is sticking to its guns and refuses to admit any wrongdoing. While we won't defend its draconian and sexist policy, the airline does have one thing right - leggings are a pretty terrible choice for an aeroplane. Here's what to wear instead.
Senior staff from the Department of Human Services told Senate estimates on March 2 that the average wait time to speak to a Centrelink operator is 14 minutes and 10 seconds. But this doesn’t match with most people’s experiences of calling Centrelink.
As it turns out, what’s not included in the reported wait time is probably more important than what is.
We spend a lot of time on our phones - so it makes sense if our batteries usually hit that dreaded 10 percent mark before the day's even half over. That's why it's important to stock up on chargers whenever you can, and now you can re-up on three extra-long Lightning charging cables for a fraction of the cost.
We've previously talked about how you can wake up earlier, but we don't often look at why starting your day sooner is beneficial. Beyond the obvious bonuses, there's one that's less apparent: it's literally the first step to better self-discipline.
