A Guy Who Makes a Little More Than You Do
Safe to say Sundar Pichai makes a little more than you do. Google's parent company appears to be satisfied with how Mr. Pichai has performed during his first four months as the new Google CEO, and have rewarded him by making him the new highest paid CEO in America. Pichai was awarded 273,328 Class C Google stock units on Feb. 3, worth around $199 million, bringing his total holdings to around $650 million. But while that may seem like an awful lot to you and me, Pichai's fortune is dwarfed by those of Google founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin, who are worth around $34 billion each, and by that of previous CEO Eric Schmidt, who's sitting on around $3 billion.
Go to "Discount Tattoo"; Get What You Paid For
Our free advice of the day: Avoid any place called "Discount Tattoo"! The Alberta, Canada Health Services Department is warning anyone who got inked at a now-closed "residential tattoo operation" in Calgary known as Discount Tattoo to be tested for communicable viruses including Hepatitis B and C, and HIV. Ryan Kinsella, ran the operation out of his home and according to Judy MacDonald, medical officer of health for the Calgary zone, failed to use proper sterilization or sanitation processes. During a press conference, MacDonald said clients of Discount Tattoo were being served at a desk in a common living area of the home that was "strewn with papers and cigarette butts." She added, "We have no idea of how many people might have used the services of this particular tattoo operator," and she's advising everyone who did to please get tested. Yikes!
