Making of the masterSometime in the early 1950s, the six-year-old Deboo was sent to learn Kathak. At 20 something, after watching the Murray Louis Dance Company, he decided to board a cargo ship with a backpack to explore dance. He sat on a dock, next to goats and sheep, and set sail to study, know and understand this decision. Today, at 72, he sits gracefully across the table to talk about the dance he has defined.

Israel's nuclear reactor also required deuterium oxide, also known as heavy water, to moderate the fissile reaction. For that, Israel turned to Norway and Britain. In 1959, Israel managed to buy 20 tons of heavy water that Norway had sold to the UK but was surplus to requirements for the British nuclear programme. Both governments were suspicious that the material would be used to make weapons, but decided to look the other way.

Compare that to what Amazon does. While tight-lipped on the matter, Jeff Bezos has said the company makes no money off Kindle hardware sales, and one report says the Echo has actually cost Amazon hundreds of millions of dollars to date. The company’s annual report also reveals that even Prime is something of a loss lead product. But Amazon keeps consumers close, because it believes there’s money in the service end, sooner or later. Now, the company makes billions off of Amazon Web Services. That’s right, all of the server infrastructure it built for its own business of serving people, Amazon now sells to power much of the web. … [Read more...] about Why Does Apple Think It Can Get Away With Selling Overpriced Stuff?
