Teachers unions call for a strike on Friday

first_imgThe High School Teachers’ Association (APSE) called for a national strike on Friday and from 11 am  teachers will meet in La Hispanidad roundabout, East of San José, to march to Casa Presidencial where they expect to deliver a list of demands to President Laura Chinchilla.APSE president Beatriz Ferreto said the goal is to mark the international day of women and also “criticize labor policies and changes the government intends to apply in salary bonuses and incentives.”The government through a press release sent from the Labor Ministry dismissed the strike call and said they have been open to dialogue with union groups. “We do not understand how it is that unions’ representatives are calling for a strike Friday, when they formally confirmed that on Thursday they will be presenting a proposal to improve salary policies, and now they call for a strike without even sitting at the table to discuss the document,” said Labor Minister, Olman Segura Bonilla in the statement.Ferreto even asked parents not to send their children to schools, as “all the country’s teachers will join the protest.” However other teachers’ unions as the National Association of Educators and the Costa Rican Education Union have not yet confirmed whether they will participate in the march.The purported draft bill would cut extra salary incentives that are exclusive to educators, including higher severance pay than most public workers, annuities, extra pay for work outside of the classroom (grading homework at home, for example), and “exclusivity” pay, which is a salary bonus so that teachers don’t take a second job.

Keith Richards says Sgt Pepper was rubbish

Untangling the great, Deadhead acid test mess Reggae royalty with a new rhythm: Ky-mani Marley NEW YORK – Half a century later, the famous rivalry between The Beatles and The Rolling Stones may not be over.Stones guitarist Keith Richards in a new interview has denounced “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band,” the 1967 album by The Beatles famed for its experimentation.Richards told Esquire magazine that the Fab Four “sounded great” when they stayed true to their original sound but “got carried away.”“Why not? If you’re The Beatles in the ’60s, you just get carried away — you forget what it is you wanted to do,” he said.He said of “Sgt. Pepper”: “Some people think it’s a genius album, but I think it’s a mishmash of rubbish, kind of like ‘Satanic Majesties.’”He was referring to “Their Satanic Majesties Request,” the Stones’ psychedelic album that came out in 1967 shortly after “Sgt. Pepper” and which Richards has previously described as the Stones’ work of which he is least proud.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9aU0si_ernM&list=PLAwDi6KYdZqREMhQkVgVYdp8FXCNzfCHrThe Beatles recorded “Sgt. Pepper” after retiring from touring and the album has often been seen as a historic moment in turning pop albums into broader artistic concepts.Moving away from The Beatles’ pop roots, “Sgt. Pepper” takes influences from a range of genres including Indian classical music after guitarist George Harrison traveled to India and became enthralled by Hindu philosophy.Richards next month is releasing “Crosseyed Heart,” his first solo album in 23 years.The Beatles and The Rolling Stones were global superstars in the 1960s, inevitably leading to talk of a rivalry between the well-mannered Fab Four and the grittier Stones.Some music historians, however, believe that the supposed rift was more the result of marketing and press scrutiny rather than any deep-seated animosity between the artists.Watch The Beatles describe their work in this “Making of Sgt.

Rep Afendoulis leads pension tax repeal in Michigan House committee

first_img State Rep. Lynn Afendoulis — chair of the House Tax Policy Committee – today led her committee colleagues voting to repeal Michigan’s pension tax.The committee’s advancement of the proposal is an important step in the effort to eliminate the tax on retirement income instituted in 2011.“In every Michigan community, seniors facing financial struggles have an even tougher time because of an unexpected tax costing them more money in retirement,” said Afendoulis, of Grand Rapids Township. “The pension tax was started at a time when Michigan’s economy was struggling. The state budget was subsequently balanced, to some extent, at the expense of those who can least afford it. Now we are in better times, and we have an opportunity to look at this again and do what’s right for retirees.”The committee’s vote advances the bill – one of the first introduced in the 2019-20 session – to the House Ways and Means Committee for further consideration.House Bill 4006 would eliminate the pension tax approved in 2011, re-establishing Michigan’s previous retirement tax structure. Public pensions would be exempt from taxation and other retirement income would have higher deductibles for state income taxes. Social Security income would continue to be exempt.The proposal also would eliminate Michigan’s current, complex three-tiered retirement tax structure – which now has different rules for taxpayers depending on what year they were born.“I want this committee to be focused on good tax policy – and this is good tax policy,” Afendoulis said.### Categories: Lynn Afendoulis News,News 28Feb Rep.

Widespread Form 1023EZ Abuse Reported by IRS

first_imgShare2TweetShareEmail2 Shares January 7, 2016; Taxpayer Advocate ServiceThe Taxpayer Advocate Service, an independent office within the Internal Revenue Service, issues an annual report to Congress about what it sees as the key issues facing the IRS. The 2016 report includes a stinging indictment of the IRS’s “absurd” handling of applications for tax exemption, especially the recently introduced 1023-EZ “short form” designed for use by small new charities.The form 1023-EZ was designed to assist the IRS and charities in clearing up a backlog of applications for tax exemption that, by 2013, had reached 66,000. Charities were waiting months or years for determinations from the IRS, with “applications requiring review” taking 18 months or more to be assigned to a reviewer. (It’s noteworthy that an applicant for tax-exemption as a charity has the right to sue the IRS if their application hasn’t been acted on within 270 days.)As NPQ reported in 2014, the key feature of the 1023-EZ is reliance on assurances from applicants rather than submitting actual documents like articles of incorporation and by-laws. Concerns raised by critics of the form and its implementation were apparently justified in their concerns that the streamlined process would lead to unqualified applicants being recognized and that the 1023-EZ could cause more work after the fact for both the IRS and state charity regulators.According to the IRS’s own research, it approved 1023-EZ applications only 77 percent of the time when it actually requested documents or basic information from applicants, as opposed to a 99 percent approval rate when relying only on assurances and attestations on the form. The IRS estimates that 20 percent of applicants using Form 1023-EZ fail the “organizational test,” meaning that their organizations don’t qualify as charities. A separate study of organizations already approved as tax-exempt charities showed that 37 percent did not meet the organizational test. Many of these charities could be brought into compliance by simple measures such as having the IRS review their governing documents and advise on issues such as a better statement of their exempt (charitable) purpose.In a biting comment for a public government document, the report says the “IRS intends to audit its way out of the potential noncompliance it helped create.” Audits have increased ninefold from 2014 to 2015, placing a burden on IRS staff and charities alike. An IRS audit is a very stressful way to clear up paperwork problems for small new charities.Where the Taxpayer Advocate Service comes up short is in its recommendations. It recommends requiring 1023-EZ applicants to submit governing documents and identify past and estimated future financial activities rather than simply checking boxes on the form. However, it’s unclear how these changes will still result in a streamlined process and avoid a return to application backlogs. It also sounds a lot like the requirements of the Form 1023—requirements that the 1023-EZ was supposed to alleviate. If a revised 1023-EZ ends up looking like the current Form 1023, it will also be hard to justify maintaining the lower application fee currently available to 1023-EZ filers.—Michael WylandShare2TweetShareEmail2 Shareslast_img read more

Telefónicas rivals in the Spanish market are cont

first_imgTelefónica’s rivals in the Spanish market are continuing to pile pressure on the country’s competition regulator to impose strict conditions on the telco if it is to go ahead and approve its acquisition of pay TV provider Canal+. Orange has reportedly asked the regulator, the CNMC, to guarantee that all rival operators will be able to take a wholesale offer of TV channels at regulated prices. Orange has also asked the regulator to extend the obligations imposed on Telefónica to open its fibre network to rival players.Orange head of regulatory affairs Julio Gomez told Spanish press that Orange was not against Telefónica buying TV rights in principle but that consumers should not be tied to the operator’s mobile and broadband offerings if they want to view its premium content. Orange has therefore asked the regulator to regulate the wholesale prices that Telefónica’s charges to ensure that they remain lower than the retail price that it charges to subscribers.Orange’s intervention comes amid reports that Telefónica could abandon its acquisition if it considers the CNMC’s conditions to be too restrictive.Separately, the EC yesterday rejected a request by the CNMC to review Orange’s own proposed acquisition of Spanish alternative telco Jazztel, arguing that it was better qualified to rule on the case.Orange originally referred the case to the EC last year, and the Commission opened an in-depth investigation in December.“The European Commission has decided not to refer the planned acquisition of Jazztel p.l.c. by Orange S.A. to the Spanish competition authority for assessment under Spanish competition law. The Commission concluded that it was better placed to deal with the case with a view to ensuring consistency in the application of the merger control rules in the fixed and mobile telecommunications sectors across the European Economic Area (EEA),” the EC said in a statement yesterday.The Commission now has until April 30 to rule on the deal.last_img read more

Pay TV operator Skys Sky News service has launche

first_imgPay TV operator Sky’s Sky News service has launched its first virtual reality news report.The report,  on the migrant crisis in Europe, will take “viewers to the front line of Europe’s migration crisis in Greece enabling them to see for themselves what is happening there”, according to Sky News.The report, Migrants Crisis – The Whole Picture, has been made in collaboration with Jaunt, the virtual reality company in which Sky is an investor along with Disney and ProSiebenSat.1.The report was filmed with the Jaunt ONE VR camera, and the report was shot by Sky News correspondent Alistair Bunkall, alongside Sky News cameraman Adam Murch and Kenny Voelker from Jaunt.Sky made an additional US$900,000 (€850,000) investment in Jaunt in September, as part of a Disney-led US$65 million funding round. Sky said at the time that it would work with Jaunt to film more original virtual reality content, having tested the technology with earlier Sky original productions including Critical, Penny Dreadful, Trollied, Fortitude and Got to Dance, as well as sports including boxing and motor racing.John McAndrew, director of news output, Sky News, said: “This new technology has enhanced our story telling, giving our viewers a deeper and richer visual experience. For the first time we can take viewers to the scene of a news story in a way that is more immersive than ever. The report gives viewers a unique perspective on the migration crisis. By taking them inside the tents where people are living and seeing what it’s like to stand on a crowded beach with possessions scattered along the shoreline, you get a new understanding of what is happening.”Alistair Bunkall, specialist correspondent, Sky News said: “The new camera allowed us to record 360 degree views. The technology means we can challenge the conventions of traditional television news reporting by showing viewers the whole picture, enabling them to see and hear it all for themselves. We can now bring the viewer with us, into the heart of the story, to see what we’re seeing, in places where they would not usually be able to go.”last_img read more

Rona Fairhead The BBCs governing body has called

first_imgRona FairheadThe BBC’s governing body has called for a “proper process” for setting the BBC’s funding to be included for the first time in the new BBC Charter.The BBC Trust said that to protect the BBC’s independence the public should have “a formal say” in setting the BBC’s funding in the future, and that the process should be “fairer, more transparent, and more accountable.”“The public strongly supports the independence of the BBC. As the BBC’s funding is an important part of that independence, funding decisions need to be made on a fair and transparent basis,” said BBC Trust chairman, Rona Fairhead.“In future we want the process to be put on a much more formal footing, including involving the public in decision-making and building these requirements into the charter. We will be urging the Government to include these changes in the coming months.”The Trust said that one of its key responsibilities is to protect the BBC’s independence – which includes editorial, creative, strategic, operational, as well as financial autonomy.“Over the current charter period there has been a mounting concern about the BBC’s financial independence. Indeed, many would argue that financial independence is a primary underpinning for the independence of the BBC,” said the Trust.Last year it was widely understood that the BBC licence would increase in line with inflation as part of a July agreement with the UK government, in which the BBC agreed to foot a £600 million bill to pay for free licence fees for people aged over-75.However, in October culture secretary John Whittingdale threw that apparent resolution into doubt, commenting that the future of the licence fee remains “an open question”. He said: “What happened in July was not the licence fee settlement. We’ve made it quite clear that the decision as to the future level of the licence fee is connected with charter review, where we are having a full public consultation in which everybody is invited to express a view.”last_img read more
