“I look forward to returning my full focus to the fixed income markets and investing, giving up many of the complexities that go with managing a large, complicated organization,” Gross said in the statement. “I chose Janus as my next home because of my long standing relationship with and respect for CEO Dick Weil and my desire to get back to spending the bulk of my day managing client assets.”

The tax benefit comes from reversing deferred taxes related to the retained earnings of the companies VIEs. EY is 500.com’s auditor, and I have previously written about how EY clients follow the unusual (although probably correct) ap-proach of providing deferred taxes for the tax cost of transferring profits out of the VIEs.

Wealthy Chinese have become far and away the biggest foreign buyers of real estate in Seattle in recent years, accounting for up to one-third of $1-million-plus homes sold in certain areas
SHITTY WEATHER THOUGH
" The median purchase for Chinese buyers is $523,148 — nearly twice the national average. Three-quarters of their purchases are all cash." ... JUST DON'T ASK WHERE THE MONEY IS FROM
"attraction to Seattle stems from its top schools, clean air, longtime Chinese population"

J. Hoberman Reviews the Coen Brothers' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' – Tablet Magazine
Gopnik is surrounded by Jews so grotesque that the movie might have been cast by Julius Streicher. (A Serious Man, as outraged Village Voice reviewer Ella Taylor wrote in a memorable rant, was “crowded with fat Jews, aggressive Jews, passive-aggressive Jews, traitor Jews, loser Jews, shyster-Jews, emo-Jews, Jews who slurp their chicken soup, and—passing as sages—a clutch of yellow-toothed, know nothing rabbis.” They are, to say the least, uniformly unlovely.)
LOL, SHE GOT IT
"he doggedly pursues an apparently hopeless career in a dead-end scene, amply stocked with colorful grotesques, not a few of them Jews"
"It cannot have been lost on the Coens that it was a Minnesota Jew like themselves who effectively schlemiel-ized an entire movement of earnest idealists. (Who could top the singer’s “Positively 4th Street” kiss-off: I wish that for just one time, you could stand inside my shoes/ You’d know what a drag it is to see you.) Nor could the brothers have failed to see the joke. The magnitude of Dylan’s off-screen success magnifies Davis’ humiliation. Dylan is their movie’s structuring absence: That he is a Jew who is not a schlemiel means he can’t be shown at all."

Taste of Da Dong - Food & Drink - Time Out - Beijing
Nearly everything here is regular Chinese fare done par excellence. Even everyday dishes like steamed buns (24RMB) are fantastic, stuffed to the brim with bok choy and egg. The appetiser platter (10RMB) takes influence from traditional Beijing cuisine, with the ma doufu and mashed potatoes some of the best we’ve ever had. The ‘chef’s special’ aubergine (28RMB) is luscious, lightly tinged with soy and aniseed. And when Dong spoons hoisin sauce over creamy, baked avocado (15RMB), it’s one lip-smacking treat.

Maybe my biggest travel splurge on the road is if there's one of those old restored colonial hotels in places that were formerly part of the British or French Empire. Like the Grand d'Angkor in Siem Reap or the Metropole in Hanoi.
