REPOST from Robert Reich (https://www.facebook.com/RBReich) of FB:

The typical CEO of America's largest companies and banks is now earning more than 475 times what America's average worker is paid. Fifty years ago, it was 40 times. This meteoric rise isn’t because CEO’s are “worth” it but because their boards want to give them more than the CEOs they compete with, giving the firm bragging rights on the Street and ensuring that the CEO will stay put. But this has resulting in an escalating arm’s race. And because CEO pay is fully deductible from corporate taxes, taxpayers are subsidizing this arm’s race -- even as median household income drops. In the table below you can see the ratio of CEO pay to average workers in the U.S. compared to other countries. 

Republican David Camp, chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, recently proposed a way to stop this arm’s race: by not allowing corporations to deduct from their taxes CEO pay in excess of $1 million. That’s a good start. But how about going a step further and imposing an “excessive pay” surtax on corporations whose CEO pay exceeds 100 times that the average American worker?

This explains the #History of the United States!
I like maps, and this is just a cool GIF!  I never thought to look into something like this, but seeing what the country looked like as it expanded, and States reshaped is very cool to me.

Typhoon Haiyan swept across the central Philippines on Friday leaving a trail of massive destruction in its wake. With sustained winds reported at over 145 miles per hour, and significantly stronger gusts, Haiyan was the second category 5 typhoon to strike the Philippines this year.

Red Cross volunteers throughout the region are reporting significant damage and a growing death toll, while the full extent of the devastation has yet to unfold since many areas are still inaccessible. The American Red Cross is in close contact with our counterparts in the Philippines and has placed emergency response teams on standby.
