SA ‘should be proud of fallen soldiers’

first_img2 April 2013 South Africans should be proud of the soldiers who were killed in the Central African Republic (CAR) during clashes with rebels last week, President Jacob Zuma said during a memorial service at the South African Air Force Base in Pretoria on Tuesday. Thirteen South African National Defence Force (SANDF) members died and 27 others sustained injuries during a gun battle with the rebel alliance known as Seleka on the outskirts of Bangui. “When future generations ask what kind of men and women these were, who gave so much of their lives to the service of the people of South Africa and the continent, we will be able to boldly say how special they were, to put their own lives at risk for such a noble mission of building peace on the continent,” Zuma said. Zuma rebutted claims that South Africa’s soldiers were in the CAR for reasons other than national interest and the mandate of the African Union. He said the soldiers in CAR were there to provide military training, refurbish bases and barracks and provide equipment. South Africa and the CAR signed a military cooperation agreement in 2007, which was renewed for a further five years in December 2012. The agreement was to provide the CAR’s army with an array of military training, from infantry, artillery and special forces training to logistics and driving courses, as well as to refurbish military infrastructure in Bouar and Bangui. “They died defending our commitment to the renewal of the African continent, and to the promotion of peace and stability, which would lead to sustainable development in Africa,” Zuma said. Most of the deceased soldiers are from Bloemfontein. All will be accorded full state funerals. Meanwhile, the rebel takeover in the CAR has been strongly condemned internationally. The African Union has suspended the country’s membership and imposed sanctions on Seleka leaders, including the CAR’s self-proclaimed new leader, Michel Djotodia. Djotodia, a former diplomat and civil servant, joined the protest against President Francois Bozize in 2005. After taking power last week, Djotodia said the rebels, which he leads and who are now in control of the country, would rule according to peace accords recently signed in Libreville. Bozize has fled the country. Zuma is expected to travel to Chad on Wednesday to attend an extra-ordinary summit of the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) which will also discuss the situation in the Central African Republic. The summit has been convened by Chad President Idriss Deby Itno, who is the ECCAS chairperson. According to the Presidency, Zuma will be accompanied by International Relations Minister Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele, and Defence Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa Nqakula.

iPad Users Scroll More Google Search Results Than PC Users

first_imgRelated Posts In the still nascent tablet market, research is ongoing about how consumers interact with this new computing medium. Whether it is how users interact with tablet magazines or how much time they spend using various apps, there is still a lot to learn.Advertising network Chitika released a study today showing that when perusing Google search results, users are more likely to scroll past the first couple of results than they are from a PC. The study showed that 20% of iPad users click the top search result in Google, a decline from the 34% who do so from a personal computer.The study was done using data from the Chitika ad network that serves three billion monthly ad impressions on the Web across 100,000 sites. The company compared it against a similar study they did last year for Google position results from desktop computers. Tags:#Apple#Google#web 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market “It appears from the data that iPad users are more willing to scroll to find the answers to their queries, and even go to multiple pages,” Chitika wrote in the study. “Perhaps this can be attributed to the touchscreen interface, or the fact that search behavior isn’t yet ingrained in tablet users like it is in desktop and laptop users.”Chitika said that it is not certain if this is true across all tablet or touch screen devices or whether it is just an “iPad phenomenon” and has promised to study mobile gadgetsChitika is active in studying analytics of web trends. In August, 2010 it was one of the first to report that Bing had overtaken Yahoo in search market share and did a study shortly after the first iPad was released on where the early adopters call home.

Blair Hamilton Dies

first_imgOn April 8, 2011, Blair Hamilton, a leading proponent of energy efficiency in Vermont, died of cancer at the age of 61. Along with his partner Beth Sachs, Hamilton founded Vermont Energy Investment Corporation, a Burlington, Vermont, nonprofit group, in 1986, long before investments in energy efficiency had attracted much attention from utilities or state regulators. VEIC now has 200 employees.Hamilton’s interest in energy efficiency predated the creation of VEIC. In the early 1980s, Hamilton and Sachs, along with heat-recovery ventilator pioneer David Hansen, created the Memphremagog Group, a small nonprofit agency in Newport, Vermont, that performed seminal research on HRVs.Hamilton’s obituary in the Burlington Free-Press noted, “He was the driving force in creating Efficiency Vermont, the first ‘energy efficiency utility’ in the country, and helped to start similar entities in other states and countries.” An obituary in Seven Days, a Burlington weekly, quoted VEIC executive director Scott Johnstone. “The idea of starting a company in 1986 that would focus on lowering the economic and environmental costs of energy was pretty monumental to consider, when the fact was there just wasn’t a whole lot of people who wanted to pay for that, or see that happen at the time,” said Johnstone.“It was just a different time in our world’s history. They along with a few others really brought it forward so that people see that the cheapest energy is the energy we don’t use.”last_img read more

AICPA Urges IRS to Provide “Tax Reform Administrative Relief” Under Final Transition Tax Rules

first_img• allow reasonable cause or Treas. Reg. Sec. 9100 relief for late filed or incomplete transfer agreements under IRC Sec. 965(i)(2); and Under IRC Sec. 965, as amended by the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 (TCJA) (P.L. 115-97), a “transition tax” is applied to post-1986 untaxed foreign earnings of certain specified foreign corporations owned by U.S. shareholders (as defined under IRC Sec. 951(b)) as if those earnings had been repatriated to the U.S. The AICPA on September 26, 2019, submitted comments on final IRC Sec. 965 regulations (T.D. 9846) urging the IRS to provide taxpayers certain administrative relief related to the transition tax. AICPA Recommended Relief for IRC Sec. 965 Elections and Transfer Agreements Specifically, the AICPA makes the followingrecommendations for administrative relief with respect to late or incompleteelections under IRC Secs. 965(i) and (h) and late or incomplete transferagreements under IRC Sec. 965(i)(2): Login to read more on CCHAnswerConnect. Late Election Relief Not Addressed by Congress “Given the significant changes stemming from tax reform, it is likely that many taxpayers and their advisors, through reasonable cause, failed to properly file an election under section 965(i),” the AICPA said, adding that many shareholders filed their returns before the final rules were issued. “Due to the number of substantive changes between the proposed and final section 965 regulations, Treasury and the IRS should grant relief for shareholders to make an election under section 965(i) if those shareholders now have an increased tax liability under section 965.” However, theAICPA notes in its comments to the IRS that the Service has on prior occasionsprovided taxpayers relief under section 9100 to make a late election regardlessof an election’s due date being statutory. Further, the AICPA highlights thatneither IRC Sec. 965(i) nor its legislative history address whether late electionrelief is available.  Generally, IRC Sec. 965 allows certain U.S. shareholders to reduce theamount of income inclusion based on deficits in earnings and profits (E&P)with respect to other specified foreign corporations, according to the IRS.  IRC Sec. 965(h) provides that taxpayers may elect to pay thetransition tax over the course of eight annual installments with no interest.Additionally, certain taxpayers may enter into a transfer agreement with the IRS to defer payment of the remaining amount of theIRC Sec. 965(h) net tax liability or IRC Sec. 965(i) net tax liability thatwould otherwise become due as a result of certain acceleration or triggeringevents. The IRS officiallypublished the revised, final IRC Sec. 965 regulations (T.D. 9846) on February 5, 2019. Procedurally, therules state that administrative relief, pursuant to Treas. Reg. Sec. 301.9100-2or § 301.9100-3 (section 9100), is unavailable for a late or incompleteelection under IRC Secs. 965(i) and 965(h). The IRS states in the preamble tothe transition tax regulations that it does not have the discretion to provide section9100 relief when an election’s due date is statutory.   Tax Reform Administrative Relief center_img The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) has urged theIRS to reconsider providing “tax reform administrative relief” under final IRC Sec. 965 transitiontax rules. Final IRC Sec. 965 Regulations Notably, theAICPA also points out that unlike an election under IRC Sec. 965(i), the duedate for filing a transfer agreement under IRC Sec. 965 (i)(2) is notprescribed by the statute. Thus, the IRS has absolute authority to providerelief to taxpayers who have filed a late or incomplete transfer agreement,according to the AICPA. In additionto the question of IRS authority as it relates to providing the requestedadministrative relief, the AICPA also reasons that as a result of tax reform’s sweeping changes to the code taxpayerslikely failed to properly file an election under IRC Sec. 965(i). • provide a process to obtain relief for late filed or incomplete elections under IRC Secs. 965(i) and 965(h) upon the triggering event of an IRC Sec. 965(i) election; • provide a process to obtain relief for late or incomplete elections under IRC Sec. 965(h). By Jessica Jeane, J.D. Additionally,the AICPA purports that refusing taxpayers the opportunity to obtain relief is“an unduly harsh result given the broad reach of IRC Sec. 965 to S corporationshareholders with different levels of sophistication.” Moreover, because theIRS takes the position that section 9100 relief is disallowed and taxpayershave no alternative means for obtaining relief for a late or incompleteelection under IRC Sec. 965(i), “inequitable consequencescould result that were not intended by Congress,” the AICPA cautions.

APDETROIT — Detroit coach Stan Van Gundy knew during the offseason that he needed another piece to get the Pistons into playoff contention in the Eastern Conference.It appears he found the right player in Avery Bradley.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information. Kammuri turning to super typhoon less likely but possible — Pagasa The Pistons had 18 points off Sacramento turnovers, while the Kings only had nine. They have recorded more points off turnovers than their opponent in nine of their 10 games.“This wasn’t our best game, but we were able to get some stops when we needed them,” Harris said. “We’re building off each other, and that’s a good thing.”Sacramento (1-8) lost its seventh straight game and gave up more than 100 points for the sixth time in a row. Zach Randolph led the Kings with 19 points, and Bogdan Bogdanovic added 14.“This is a learning experience,” Kings coach Dave Joerger said. “It was a small-ball game tonight, and they were able to hurt us with that.”Back-to-back 3-pointers by Reggie Jackson and Harris gave the Pistons a 77-69 lead late in the third quarter. Detroit led 85-74 heading into the fourth, and held off a brief Sacramento surge early in the period.ADVERTISEMENT “That wasn’t an easy win by any means,” Van Gundy said. “We didn’t have a lot of energy, and their starting lineup gave us a lot of trouble, but we were able to grind it out.”The Pistons scored the game’s first 10 points, but Randolph scored 10 points in the first quarter to keep the Kings close. Sacramento led briefly in the second quarter, but Bradley’s 13 points were enough to give Detroit a 52-49 lead at halftime.“It seemed like we were down four points around 80 times tonight, but we could never put together the big run we needed,” Joerger said. “We talked about how much ball pressure they use, and then we would come down three times and they would deflect three passes.”TIP-INSKings: Randolph’s first-quarter scoring started moments after Michigan State’s winning field goal against Penn State was shown on the Little Caesars Arena scoreboard, accompanied by the MSU fight song.

House approves Lilly bill to limit senseless election recounts

first_img Categories: Lilly News 01Nov House approves Lilly bill to limit senseless election recounts The Michigan House of Representatives today voted overwhelmingly in favor of legislation introduced by state Rep. Jim Lilly to prevent recounts from moving forward when they are extremely unlikely to impact the results of an election.Lilly, of Park Township, said the events that transpired in Michigan following the 2016 presidential election inspired his bill.“Jill Stein exploited our state laws to force a recount, even though she lost by more than 2 million votes,” Lilly said. “My legislation eliminates the ambiguity in the law that allowed her recount charade to temporarily obstruct the election process and cause an expensive legal battle.”In 2016, members of the Michigan Board of Canvassers disagreed about whether Stein should be considered an “aggrieved candidate,” a term used in the law without definition. Ultimately they voted 2-2 on whether the recount should proceed, and the deadlock resulted in the petition being deemed approved.The Michigan Court of Appeals, however, ultimately halted the recount and ruled that the Board of Canvassers should not have allowed it to proceed.House Bill 5012 clarifies in statute that candidates claiming to be “aggrieved” for the purpose of seeking a recount must be able to demonstrate a good-faith belief that, if not for fraud or mistake, they would have had a reasonable chance of winning the election.“All candidates should have the right to request a recount, but the process should not proceed if the candidate has no reasonable chance of winning the election,” Lilly said. “When someone who has clearly lost an election has an issue there are more appropriate ways for them to seek recourse. This legislation ensures that public tax dollars are not wasted on unnecessary recounts while still maintaining the integrity of the elections process.”The bill advances to the Senate for consideration.###last_img read more
