Eduardo Saverin

Eduardo Luiz Saverin[4][5][6] (/ˈsævərɪn/; Portuguese: [eduˈaɾdu luˈis ˈsaveɾĩ]; born 19 March 1982) is a Brazilian Internet entrepreneur and angel investor.[7] Saverin is one of the co-founders of Facebook.[8] As of 2015, he owns 53 million Facebook shares[9] (approximately 0.4% of all outstanding shares) and has a net worth of $8.7 billion,[10] according to Forbes. He has also invested in early-stage startups such as Qwiki[11] and Jumio.[12] In what was seen by some as a move to avoid U.S. taxes, Saverin renounced his U.S. citizenship in September 2011.[13][14] According to Saverin, he renounced his citizenship because of his "interest in working and living in Singapore" where he has been since 2009.[15] He avoided an estimated $700 million in capital gains taxes; this generated some media attention and controversy.[7][16][17] Saverin denies that he left the U.S. to avoid paying taxes.[13] Contents [hide1Family and early life2Education

History[edit] The oldest classical Greek and Latin writing had little or no space between words and could be written in boustrophedon (alternating directions). Over time, text direction (left to right) became standardized, and word dividers and terminal punctuation became common. The first way to divide sentences into groups was the original paragraphos, similar to an underscore at the beginning of the new group.[3] The Greek paragraphos evolved into the pilcrow (¶), which in English manuscripts in the Middle Ages can be seen inserted inline between sentences. The hedera leaf (e.g. ☙) has also been used in the same way. Indented paragraphs demonstrated in the US Constitution In ancient manuscripts, another means to divide sentences into paragraphs was a line break (newline) followed by an initial at the beginning of the next paragraph. An initial is an oversized capital letter, sometimes outdented beyond the margin of the text. This style can be seen, for example, in the original Old …
