Watch The Wolf of Wall Street Trailer:

The best performance of DiCaprio
The Wolf of Wall Street also gives Leonardo DiCaprio an opportunity to offer the best performance of his career. Besides aplomb he shows in the skin of an unfriendly character prone to all the excesses, the actor also displays an unsuspected talent for comedy. Scenes showing him under the influence of strong drugs (whose effects are offset) are pretty amazing this regard.

For three hours without any dead time, the viewer is drawn into an environment that Scorsese chose to show up at the end of his vision, without sweetening. With his usual mastery, it exposes the depravity of an amoral world that never learns from his mistakes, boosted by his own arrogance.

"Despite the lack of any scientific evidence to present the effect of coffee among consumers and physicians, there is some idea that coffee can cause dehydration , so it should not be taken to maintain the balance of fluids in the body. In our work we try to understand whether or not this is the case, "- said Sophie Keeler of the University of Birmingham.

Keeler and her colleagues found that coffee does not have any connection with reality, watching the work of the body in two groups of volunteers. Members of the first of them drank four cups of coffee for three days, and the second - four cups of water.

Sales of consoles in the United States set a new record

New Year sale consoles broke a record in December gamers purchased a quarter more consoles than a year earlier. This breakthrough came with the release of new devices from Microsoft and Sony. While the two giants in the fight wins Japanese company with its Playstation 4.

Sales of consoles in the U.S. in December rose by 28% compared with the previous year and amounted to 1.37 billion dollars, according to the NPD Group. The last time more money on consoles gamers spent only in December 2010 (1.84 billion dollars). The rapid growth of the December sales provided output consoles Xbox One of Microsoft and Playstation 4 from Sony. "The new console from Microsoft and Sony started superbly. Xbox led sales in December, but after two months from the date of commencement of sales leader is Playstation 4 "- Bloomberg said NPD analyst Liam Callahan. On store shelves Playstation 4 Received 15 November and the end of December Sony managed to sell 4.3 million of its consoles, while Microsoft, whose console came out a week later - 3 million total for 2013 consoles were sold by 4 $ 26 billion

At the same time of the struggle between the producers of consoles, in fact, eliminated the Japanese Nintendo. For the fiscal year Nintendo expects losses of $ 240 million company failed to interest gamers their game console Wii U and was forced to cut its sales forecast - from 9 million to 2.8 million units over the same period. Nintendo also lowered expectations and popularity of the portable console 3DS - from 18 million to 13.5 million units. One of the main reasons for the failure - competition from smartphones and tablets. "In the video game market is increasingly moving smartphones and tablets. Nintendo needs to change its business model. This is a structural problem, "- said the chief fund manager at Ichiyoshi Asset Management Mitsucige Aquino.

By 2017, analysts expect the share of video game consoles on the market will grow from 31 to 40%, and the segment - from 53.9 billion to 73.8 billion dollars in the same time, portable consoles such as Nintendo's 3DS and PSVita from Sony, will lose its popularity. Their share will fall from 22 to 13%. Nevertheless, in the future Sony and Microsoft will compete not only among themselves but also with tablets and smartphones. The success of this generation of consoles will determine what kind of platform for consumers choose games - consoles or tablets "- analyst Laurent Michaud IDATE.

It is expected that in the period from 2013 to 2017 mobile games sector will grow by an average of 11.4% per year. "In the tablet game easier and more affordable. Tablet, as well as the console becomes the center of home entertainment. In addition, it is also entertainment on the road. This has contributed to the explosive growth of tablet market games, "- said RBC daily head of digital content J'son & Partners Consulting Oleg Drones. However, the percentage of intersection of the audience that plays on tablets and on consoles, not so big that producers noticed competition, rather both types of devices complement each other, says Mr. Drones.

Venture capital firms drop cash on DropBox - 250 million dollars

Cloud storage service Dropbox has become the most valuable startups in Silicon Valley. During attract funding of 250 million dollars the whole company was valued at $ 10 billion initially a free service based on private clients MIT graduate Drew Hauztonom now set his sights on the corporate segment, which in the future can bring big money.

In addition, increased their investments in Dropbox and the current owners of shares in the company - Sequoia Capital, Index Ventures and Accel Partners, which supported data store money at the end of 2011. Then the service was valued at $ 4 billion In addition, Dropbox talks about bringing another 100-150 million dollars of funds Fidelity T. Rowe Price, the resource Re / code.

As a result, Dropbox has become the most expensive at the moment a startup in Silicon Valley on the basis of raising funds not through the public markets. This is a very good result for the company, which is a graduate of MIT (MIT) Drew Hauztonom invented, struggling with its own distraction - he kept forgetting to bring a flash drive with the right information. For comparison, Twitter about a year ago was estimated at $ 9 billion, and its revenue in January-September 2013 amounted to 422 million dollars in November microblogging service went to the stock exchange and now its market capitalization of $ 35 billion

Starting to raise funds in November last year, the company estimated the Dropbox itself only in the $ 8 billion, but has risen in the course of negotiations. This indicates that investors are out to get a "piece» Dropbox before its release to the stock exchange, which, according to many analysts, could be held later this year. Business Dropbox until such assessment is not justified. According to the WSJ, in 2012, revenues were $ 116 million, and by the end of last year it expected to double this figure.

Investors, however, believe that last year's decision Dropbox focus on private customers in the future will allow it to thrive. Dropbox has achieved popularity as a repository of photos, documents and other information that provides ordinary users access from any device and synchronizes between all changes to the data. This idea is currently estimated at about 200 million users worldwide, most of whom prefer to use free accounts (2-5 GB) and not pay $ 10 a month for premium access (100 GB).

But last year, Dropbox seriously finalized its service, by doing so, it became convenient not only for personal but also for the needs of workers - with ample opportunities for companies to administer the work of employees with corporate information, access to which is protected. Corporate Account costing at least $ 75 a month (for a group of five members) or $ 175 per person per year. Dropbox claims that she had 4 million corporate clients. However, most of them - small or medium sized business.

In order to attract to their services of major international companies, Dropbox last year hired sales professionals and lured known representatives of the Internet industry. Its staff has grown from 200 to 500 employees, among whom were the head of mobile partnerships Facebook Muassinak Henry and Kevin Egan, lining up the direction of sales Salesforce. Attracting new funds will allow Dropbox continue hiring staff and build relationships with large corporate clients.

AB InBev has regained Oriental Brewery for $ 5.8 billion

CEO of the world's largest beer producer Anheuser-Busch InBev (AB InBev) Carlos Brito decided to buy for $ 5.8 billion Korean company Oriental Brewery, which he himself had sold three times cheaper than in 2009. The main reason for the sale and purchase of Oriental Brewery - the desire of top management of AB InBev get big bonuses, some analysts believe.

AB InBev, which produces more than 200 different brands of beer sold Oriental Brewery for $ 1.8 billion investment funds KKR & Co. and Affinity Equity Partners in 2009. At first glance it might seem that buying back Oriental Brewery, Carlos Brito actually acknowledged his strategic miscalculation. "The deal seems strange, since they pay for Oriental worth three times more than that for which sold the company five years ago" - quoted by Bloomberg Liberum Capital analyst Pablo Zuanik. According to him, the main reason for the deal was not so much the growth of the beer market in Korea as the company's desire to increase its stake in the country and increase the popularity of brands Budweiser and Corona. Over the past years, Oriental Brewery has significantly strengthened its position in the Korean market, increasing its share from 40 to 60%.

Nevertheless, as the sale and repurchase of Oriental Brewery were not a mistake, but part of a long-term strategy Carlos Brito, writes The Economist. In 2008, InBev acquired Anheuser-Busch for $ 52 billion, which is why, at the end of the year, AB InBev debts amounted to 56.6 billion dollars As a result of the absorption Brito and 40 other executives received stock options 28.4 million shares. However, to sell half of their shares, they could only be corrected if the company's financial performance: at the end of 2013 the ratio of net debt to EBITDA ratio should drop to 2.5.

Brito was able to successfully cope with the task. At the beginning of last year's debt amounted to $ 30.1 billion already largely achieved such success CEO thanks to extensive sale of assets - in total, the company got rid of the property value of $ 9.4 billion since 2008 the company's shares rose almost six-fold, and price of a security is now U.S. $ 101.47 Thus, the total amount of the bonus Brito valued at approximately $ 289 million, and all top managers together - $ 2.5 billion in second half of the shares Brito and other executives only be able to sell in 2019.

Now that Brito secured bonuses, he decided to return the company lost assets, says The Economist. AB InBev reserves the right to repurchase the Korean manufacturer of beer on a pre-agreed terms and conditions for five years. Buying Oriental Brewery not be a big burden for the company - even after the transaction and the net debt to EBITDA will be lower in February 2015. At the same time, the acquisition will increase the presence of AB InBev in the Asia-Pacific region. Last year, they accounted for only one seventh of the total volume of beer sold by AB InBev. Oriental Brewery strengthen our position in the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region. There it will represent a significant portion of our sales, "- said in a statement Carlos Brito. It is expected that the beer market in Korea will increase by 13% in the period from 2012 to 2022. Purchase AB InBev - the second major deal in the alcohol market since the beginning of the year. Last week, the Japanese company Suntory Holdings acquired Beam bourbon producer for $ 16 billion

The Shares of AB InBev in U.S. market closed Friday at $101.47, down 1.9% for the session.
