  • Be wary of Raising The Bar, Fortuneonehundred

    first_imgPUNTERS hunting quick-fire bankers on today’s 11-race card at Caymanas Park should be wary of the two obvious choices – FORTUNEONEHUNDRED in the 1000-metre round opening event and RAISING THE BAR in the nightcap at 1100 metres.FORTUNEONEHUNDRED has not trained on the track since turning for home with a two-length lead in the Diamond Mile on December 5. Tumbling to $550,000 claiming from grade one, where he campaigned most of last year, suggests something has gone amiss in the last 70 days since the talented United States-bred last raced.Even on an off day, FORTUNEONEHUNDRED should easily put away his six rivals, especially at the minimum distance. However, punters are advised to tread carefully in the opening event by backing up their bets with sound horses such as DWAYNE STAR, ITALIANO and speedy COME DANCE WITH ME.Similar to FORTUNEONEHUNDRED, RAISING THE BAR has taken a shocking drop in class from non-winners-of-four to the second-lowest claiming level, a $250,000 tag.It should be noted that RAISING THE BAR, a renowned speedster, has been slowly into stride in his two races this year. First, it was January 9 at 1500 metres, followed by January 31 at 1000 metres straight.In neither of those races did the four-year-old filly recover, even briefly, to show some speed. In addition, she has been sparingly trained, which makes her suspect against horses who she should easily put away.Options to RAISING THE BAR are consistent INFANTRY OFFICER and CLASSICAL TRAIN, who’s hunting a double, carrying 48.0 kilos, but up in class.HOWARD PHILLIPPS MEMORIALMeanwhile, ACTION MAN should prove too quick for his eight rivals in the 1100-metre Howard Phillipps Memorial.Omar Walker partners ACTION MAN, who heads the scale at 56.0 kilos. However, the four-year-old colt is not too heavy to take charge of the event coming off the final turn.Included in the nine-horse field are five fillies, none of whom can match ACTION MAN for speed. His other three rivals, two geldings and a colt, have neither the form nor speed to deny him following his strong third-place run behind DWAYNE STAR at 1000 metres straight on January 31.Partnered by apprentice Bebeto Harvey last time out, ACTION MAN disputed the lead with LEGAL ACCOUNT from the start before DWAYNE STAR closed in mid-track to overhaul both a half furlong out.DWAYNE STAR had reported for that race with solid runs under his girth, finishing no more than five lengths behind winners such as LONG RUNNING TRAIN, TARANIS, ROYAL ASSAULT and BRAWN in four consecutive races.The filly DINNER BY SEVEN has some speed, but was well beaten by ACTION MAN in their last three meetings.The two expected closers, COMMANDING AVIATOR and TURBO MACHINE CAT, are recent graduates to non-winners-of-three, having both beaten non-winners-of-two in the last two weeks.last_img read more

  • African art scene blooms in South Africa

    first_imgArtist David Koloane attends the 2013 Turbine Art Fair in Johannesburg. (Image: Turbine Art Fair)• Ross Douglas Founder and directorArtlogic+27 11 447 3868• Jade MacCallumMarketing ManagerTurbine Art Fair+27 11 575 3698• Liza Dyason ProducerCape Town Art Fair+27 21 674 5644Lucille DavieThe African contemporary art scene is blooming in South Africa, with one fair going into its seventh year, and two others having a second showing this year.The longest-running of them, the FNB Joburg Art Fair, is planning its seventh splash in August this year in Sandton, in the northern suburbs of the city of gold. “As we sit down to plan for the seventh edition of the FNB Joburg Art Fair, we are very excited to [get] feedback on what a pivotal year 2013 was for the African contemporary art scene,” says Ross Douglas, the director and founder of Artlogic, the company that initially conceived the idea.In 2013, 33 galleries participated, with groups in Mozambique, Nigeria and Zimbabwe showcasing work, while galleries in England, France, Germany and Spain took floor space too. Douglas says sales were up 25%, with R20-million raked in. Some 10 000 visitors attended the fair, which was held in September.Artlogic was founded by Douglas in 2004, with its first venture a production of William Kentridge’s 9 Films for Projection, shown in South Africa and New York, as well as The Magic Flute. Artlogic also produces the FoodWineDesign Fair, and the Winter Sculpture Fair, held in the scenic surrounds of the Nirox Foundation sculpture park, in the Cradle of Humankind, some 40km north-west of Johannesburg.Douglas says that the Joburg Art Fair is now on the international art calendar, and the 2013 edition secured interviews on German National Radio, Deutsche Welle, Monocle, Art Tactic and the AMA newsletter. There were also six African pavilions at the Venice Biennale 2013, he adds, and the Golden Lion for the best national pavilion was awarded to Angola.Two new art fairs“While we [had] been pioneers for five years, 2013 saw no fewer than two new art fairs in South Africa.” The first Cape Town Art Fair took place in October, with the second planned for late February this year. And the first Turbine Art Fair, in Newtown in downtown Joburg, took place in July; the second is planned for July this year.In total, 28 South African galleries were represented in Newtown, with the aim to create a platform for aspiring art collectors to buy art, says Jade MacCallum, the marketing manager of the Forum Company, which conceived and organised the event. A ceiling of R25 000 was set for the artworks.“The project was started by The Forum with the purpose to educate, include and excite people about the wonderful world of art, people [who] wouldn’t ordinarily be exposed to art or galleries. Sharing art experiences enables us to live out our passion and create opportunities,” says MacCallum. Some 3 000 people attended the two-day event, and she says the organisers are satisfied that they achieved their aim.The second Cape Town Art Fair takes place at the start of the year in which Cape Town is World Design Capital (WDC). “WDC is a biannual honour, awarded by the International Council for Societies of Industrial Design, to cities across the globe to show their commitment using design as a social, cultural and economic development tool,” indicate the organisers of the fair, Fiero Milano Africa.In all, 40 galleries took stands at the first Cape Town fair, most of which were from the city. Asked why it took Cape Town so long to have an art fair, Liza Dyason, the event producer, said: “I’m uncertain why it took so long… the idea seems obvious. Until now it was felt that the market was primarily Joburg-based but with the enormous developments and investments going into art and design in the Mother City, the [Cape Town Art Fair] was seen as an important addition to the events that are planned, especially with Cape Town World Design Capital 2014 in mind.”Fiera Milano Africa director Louise Cashmore says: “The success of the first fair in 2013 clearly illustrated that the time was right for Cape Town to host an art fair of this nature. Cape Town is an international city and home to many of the country’s leading contemporary artists, curators and galleries.”Other spin-offsAnother spin-off was the 1.54 Contemporary African Art Fair, held in London in October 2013. Artists from Tanzania, Mali, Angola and Benin exhibited, and galleries from Equatorial New Guinea, Ivory Coast, Mali, and South Africa took stands. Alongside these galleries were several European dealers who have an interest in work from Africa: Milan’s Galleria Continua, London’s Jack Bell and Berlin’s Mikael Andersen, among others.In November, the announcement of the first major private art museum in Africa was made: the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa will open in late 2016 in Cape Town. Jochen Zeitz has committed his collection of contemporary art from Africa and its diaspora in perpetuity as the museum’s founding collection. Not only will he underwrite the running costs of the museum, but he will provide “a substantial acquisition budget to allow the museum to acquire new important artworks over time to remain on the edge of contemporary cultural production”, according to a statement by the V&A Waterfront, his partner in the venture.The museum will focus on collecting, preserving, researching, and exhibiting “cutting edge contemporary art”. It will be housed in the historic Grain Silo at the V&A Waterfront, with the V&A committing over R500-million to the development. “Built in 1921, and at 57m tall, the Grain Silo remains an icon of the Cape Town skyline. This investment will further the development of art in Africa and acknowledges the important cultural and financial contribution the visual arts sector makes.”Around the time of the announcement, Zeitz said: “Over the last two decades, Africa has played an important role in both my professional and private life. My collection has been strategically built over many years specifically with the goal to create an internationally relevant public contemporary art museum in Africa. After considering many cities across Africa, I am excited to partner with the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town. It is an iconic location in an iconic city, and will be situated in a historic landmark building. This will make my collection accessible to local, national, continental and international audiences.”Douglas says that this year, more galleries from Africa and Europe will participate in the Joburg Art Fair, but the core theme will remain African. England, France, Germany, Mozambique, Nigeria, Spain and Zimbabwe will be represented, and so far 33 galleries have confirmed their attendance, 11 of which are new to the event.“One of Artlogic’s primary aims with the FNB Joburg Art Fair is to grow the audience for art from Africa,” he says.last_img read more

  • New tips to try to minimize dicamba damage

    first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest New restrictions a federal agency has put on using a controversial dicamba aren’t enough to prevent it from spreading onto nearby plants, according to an Ohio State University weed expert.As a result, Mark Loux, a weed specialist with Ohio State University Extension, and colleagues from Purdue University and the University of Illinois have created a list of additional precautions that farmers should try to follow whenever they use dicamba.The additional recommendations from Loux and his colleagues include not applying dicamba if the temperature is warmer than 80 degrees or if the forecast indicates wind gusts over 10 miles per hour. The recommendations also say that farmers should apply dicamba early in the season around the time of crop planting, or soon after the emergence of the crop and weeds.They also suggest that farmers talk to their neighbors before applying dicamba so that farmers know what plants are nearby that could potentially be affected by any spread of dicamba.“We think our recommendations will help,” Loux said, “but not guarantee against dicamba moving from the area where it was applied and injuring or killing plants that were not supposed to be affected.”Dicamba has been shown to easily spread well beyond the fields where it was sprayed, damaging or killing crops. Nationwide, there have been complaints and lawsuits, claiming damages.On Oct. 31, the Environmental Protection Agency announced it would continue to allow farmers to keep using dicamba until at least December 2020. The agency required changes to the label that detail additional stipulations on when and how to use the herbicide to try to protect nearby fields.“What (the EPA has) done is to try to make changes to prevent dicamba from moving around into other places,” Loux said.But those changes aren’t enough, he said. Even with the added EPA restrictions, dicamba could still go airborne and spread to other plants that it was not intended to kill, Loux said.“The weed science community is pretty unhappy, and doesn’t believe these EPA regulations are really going to help much,” he said.New regulations include the prohibition of using dicamba on soybeans more than 45 days after planting, specifying certain times of the day dicamba can be applied, and clarifying who is authorized to apply it.These regulations don’t have Loux or the weed science community convinced.“There is some question as to whether 45 days actually does anything,” he said.The farming community isn’t sold either.“Support for using dicamba after plants have emerged is split amongst the farming community depending upon whether or not you like dicamba,” Loux said.Those who like using dicamba are happy they get to continue. Many see it as an effective tool in controlling weeds that resist herbicides. Those who don’t like dicamba believe the EPA isn’t doing enough to prevent the dangers the herbicide poses to nearby crops.An EPA press release states that dicamba is helpful to farmers, and that EPA is supporting farmers who rely on the chemical.The new EPA regulations include the following:Only certified applicators may apply dicamba over the top (those working under the supervision of a certified applicator may no longer make applications).Over-the-top application of dicamba is prohibited on soybeans up to 45 days after planting.Application is allowed only from one hour after sunrise to two hours before sunset.To view the full list of recommendations on dicamba use from Loux and his colleagues, visit: go.osu.edu/dicambatips.To learn more about the EPA’s decision to allow the continued use of dicamba, visit go.osu.edu/EPArelease.last_img read more

  • Key Takeaways from Caregiving Webinar: Promoting Knowledge

    first_imgStages of change: Recognize how adults put behavior change into practice to enable them to receive really high quality outcomes from the education that they are being provided.Key TakeawaysSo what is the moral of the story? What can you as a service provider do to increase the knowledge of your service members and their caregivers using the three core competencies discussed in Tuesday’s session?Remember, communication is a cycle in which errors can occur. Learn to tailor your messages to what the person you are working with wants to know. For example, you are providing high quality information, but you are also looking for that feedback from the client. You must acknowledge their experience and their need to be self-directing and that you are listening and responding appropriately.Adults want task-oriented learning. Make your education about the tasks, not about the education. Give your clients something they can take and run with and appeal to their variety of learning styles. Support what you are saying with written information and give your client something that they can do on their own. Change is hard and relapse happens, but if we can plan accordingly we can look for ways to help facilitate that change and plan for action.If you missed Tuesday’s webinar click on Promoting Knowledge Gain and Behavior Change through Effective Education to learn more.

  • Employers: IRS Info Request on Your ACA Health Coverage Reporting May Be Coming

    first_imgThe IRS is sending information request Letter 5699 to Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) seeking information on why they are not current with their employee health coverage information reporting.  Employers can view these as reminders. They should act promptly to avoid penalties.ALEs Use Form 1095-C to Report Employee Health CoverageThe Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires ALEs to annually report to the IRS and furnish to employees information regarding any offer or failure to offer minimum essential health coverage to any full-time employee for the year.  ALEs must file Form 1095-C, Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage, and Form 1094—C, Transmittal of Employer-Provided Health Insurance Offer and Coverage Information Return with the IRS for each full-time employee.  ALEs must also furnish statements to their full-time employees relating to health coverage.  Employers with 50 or more full-time employees are generally treated as ALEs.Employers Receiving Letter 5699 Need to RespondIf the IRS does not receive information returns from a taxpayer it believes to be an ALE, it will send the employer Letter 5699, Request for Employer Reporting of Offers of Health Insurance Coverage. The letter asks the employer to confirm its name, EIN, ALE status, and date of any filing. The employer is invited to explain why it has not filed the required returns and any actions it plans to take.Penalties May Be ImposedIf the employer fails to respond or address the IRS’s reporting concerns, it risks being subject to a late or inaccurate reporting penalty. The maximum penalty amount in the case of intentional disregard is $520 per return for 2016 (inflation adjusted to $530 for 2017 and 2018), with no penalty cap for the employer.  The employer can look for a penalty assessment Letter 5005-A / Form 886A.  Good faith transition relief generally applies, and in any case early cooperation helps to minimize penalties.2018 Return DeadlinesThe deadlines for filing 2018 returns with the IRS are February 28, 2019, for paper filers, and April 1, 2019, for electronic filers. The deadline for furnishing this information to employees was extended from January 31 to March 4, 2019.By James Solheim, J.D.Login to read more on CCHAnswerConnect.Not a subscriber?
