Ireland does away with the so-called Irish Double - the means by which huge corporations are able to cut their tax bills to very low levels. We hear from the woman at the centre of the latest #GamerGate death threats, game developer Brianna Wu. Celebrated tech journalist Erik Kain offers his opinion. Animator Sydney Padua is in the studio to explain her fascination with Ada Lovelace, daughter of Lord Byron and the first person to conceive of computer programming, way back in the 1840s! And don't miss Business Matters fantastic dramatisation of Sydney's new graphic novel, The Thrilling Adventures of Lovelace and Babbage, starring members of our production team. In our Singapore studio, the ever controversial David Kuo; at our office in New York, Cecily McMillan from the Occupy movement. And Phil Mercer explains why Brisbane does not deserve to be labelled one of the world's ugliest cities.
