But Johnson yesterday said that the tax should be reviewed nearer the election.Speaking on The Andrew Marr Show, he said: “What me and Ed agree on is that we need a 50p tax rate now, we’ll need it at the next general election, but we’ll look at it closer to the time.”Earlier this month Johnson admitted there were “very big” differences between him and the Labour leader. He accused Miliband of committing to maintain the 50p tax “in the cut and thrust” of a leadership election, and has suggested that Labour could scrap the policy.But a spokesman for Mr Miliband has said the party was committed to the tax rate “for the forseeable future”.Michael Fallon, deputy chairman of the Conservative party, said: “Until [Miliband] stops dithering… he won’t get people to take an interest in Labour.”IN QUOTES | HOW ALAN JOHNSON CONTRADICTED HIS BOSS● Ed Miliband, 10 June“Let me say plainly: I would keep the top rate of income tax at 50p permanently.”● Alan Johnson, 15 November “We might not see the need for a 50p tax rate in five years’ time.” ● Ed Miliband, 22 November “One of the things that gets me out of bed in the morning and that I care about is that Britain is a fundamentally unequal society and that’s the reason I said what I said about the 50p rate.”● Alan Johnson, yesterday“What me and Ed agree on is that we need a 50p tax rate now, we will need it at the next general election, but we will look at it closer to the time.” Sharelast_img read more

  • I like this under-the-radar growth fund that’s still smashing the FTSE 100

    first_img In May last year, I took a look at a relatively new global equity fund, Blue Whale Growth. At the time, it was generating fantastic returns for investors. I said that, for growth investors, it was “worth a closer look.”Fast forward to today, and Blue Whale Growth is still delivering a top performance for its investors. Here’s a look at how this under-the-radar global equity fund has performed recently. 5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…A top-performing fund When I covered Blue Whale Growth last year, I highlighted the fact it was comfortably outperforming both the FTSE 100 and the FTSE All-World indexes. Today, the fund – which now has assets of nearly £250m – is still beating these indexes.For example, for the three-month period to the end of March (which included the coronavirus market crash), Blue Whale Growth delivered a return of -8%. By contrast, the FTSE 100 returned -24% and the FTSE All-World -21%. That’s a significant outperformance. And looking at its performance for the whole of 2019, Blue Whale returned an excellent return of 28%, versus 17% for the FTSE 100 and 27% for the FTSE All-World.Overall, Blue Whale has impressed since its launch in September 2017. Of the 285 funds in the Investment Association’s ‘Global’ category, it has been the third-best performer.Investment approachIn terms of why this fund has outperformed the FTSE 100 by such a wide margin, I put it down to two reasons.Firstly, it’s a global equity product. This means portfolio manager Stephen Yiu has access to investment opportunities that can’t be found here in the UK. Secondly, Yiu is a high-conviction manager. This means that instead of buying hundreds of stocks for the portfolio, he only invests in around 25-35 companies he believes can generate exceptional returns for investors.Specifically, Yiu looks for companies that have the ability to grow and improve profitability over the long term, don’t face structural or imminent cyclical issues, and trade at attractive valuations. World-class companiesThe result of this approach is that the fund contains leading businesses such as: I like this under-the-radar growth fund that’s still smashing the FTSE 100 Click here to claim your copy now — and we’ll tell you the name of this Top US Share… free of charge!

  • Proposed Apopka budget $121 million; no change in tax rate

    first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Workshop meetings underway with bare bones approach being implementedThe Apopka City Council held the first of six budget meetings yesterday and began the process of crafting a proposal into a financial plan for the City of Apopka. The Council learned that the fiscal 2018 budget has increased 16%, but the proposed millage rate will remain the same as 2017. Apopka Finance Director Pam Barclay, City Administrator Glenn Irby and Mayor Joe Kilsheimer all described it as an austere, bare-bones, no-frills, budget.“What was proposed in the General Fund was $60-million, and we trimmed that down (to approximately $44.5 million), Barclay said. “We presented a balanced budget meaning the revenues match the expenditures.”Kilsheimer described it as the best that could be done without increasing revenues or utilizing the general funds.“Everything that is being requested by department heads is needed,” he said. “However, if we are not going to raise taxes, and we’re not going into reserves, there’s just no money for some of the things our department heads have asked for. This is an austere budget.”Irby found the process in many ways unprecedented and warned that budget cuts could not continue forever.“I’ve been putting budgets together like this for over 20 years, and usually there is fat… and you learn over the years where departments tend to store it and you go and extract it,” he said. “We found that this year. It’s no different. But what I noticed this year that I’ve never seen before is these budgets weren’t really extravagant. We have things that are wearing out. We have police cars with over 100,000 miles on them. Pursuit vehicles of that type are dangerous. They need to be retired. This is the first time in my career that I had to face the directors and tell them ‘I can’t give you any of this’. And I do understand why and that’s what I told them. We have marching orders from last year. And just to get a half-mil rate increase was difficult. So what you have is a no-frills, bare bones budget. There is no padding – none. And I’ve said this to Council before – this is not sustainable. Something has to give. And what that is I don’t know.”The proposed FY 2018 budget is $121,050,345 for all funds, which is an increase of $16,966,829 or 16% over the 2017 budget. However, the proposed General Fund Budget would decrease approximately $4.7 million ($44,506,298) or 9.7% compared to last year’s budget. No reserves and no additional bank notes were used to balance this year’s General Fund budget. In order to do so, all requests for capital expenditures, with the exception of costs to complete Fire Station No. 5, and all requests for additional employees were eliminated.Budget Highlights  “Last year we discussed the need to remain focused in order to achieve future success. We focused on what we could afford to do to maintain our quality of life during the most troubling economic situation in decades. During the year we invested time and resources into expanding our economic development efforts, planning for the future and keeping our community safe. Although economic indicators continue to point toward recovery, history shows it could be a slow recovery. This year we should continue to focus on economic development, sustainability and keeping our community safe as these proactive measures will position us to recover faster and ensure our future success.We believe this budget is a prudent and responsible financial plan that funds the top priorities of the City Council and provides funding to maintain our services and infrastructure. We hope you find this information useful in developing an understanding of the financial plan of the City of Apopka. As we strive to better serve our residents, we look forward to working with the City Council and the public to continue to build a strong financial base and to continue to make Apopka one of the finest communities in which to live, work and play.”The City Council meets again tomorrow from 3-6 PM in its second workshop at Apopka City Hall.Note – This is the first in a series of articles outlining the budget process, which includes five more workshops and City Council discussions and votes.  Reply Mama Mia 4 COMMENTS Please enter your name here I think the mayor ought to allow the public to speak at the budget workshops like he used to, when they discussed the budget. I bragged about the mayor then and told him that I appreciated his allowing the public to speak and be a part of the discussions about the budget and items to be purchased, and that he was doing a good job. The mayor needs to allow the public to speak again at the workshops. Why not? When it comes to the city council meetings, it seems the budget is cast in stone, and whatever the public says isn’t considered and just a formality before their votes.

Barnes Field sign on the western part of Grossenbacher St. and Wells in front of the baseball fields. I don’t know if the city handles that or the school people, but if the mayor sees this post maybe he will contact Christine Moore about it if the school handles that instead of the city.

Architects H Arquitectes The house for a couple with three children – without noticeable programmatic nuances – is situated in the typical development of workers housing from the first half of the 20th century, close to the historic centre of the city: orthogonal streets and long and narrow lots – four meters -.

The project strategy may be seen in the section of the dwelling: a rather unusual arrangement of the program in floors, the incorporation of a courtyard on the ground floor and the use of the stairway as a tool for natural light an ventilation. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezTaking advantage of the fact that the client children were not babies – the youngest was ten- we decided to separate the master suite from the rest of the bedrooms and situate in on the ground floor. The project rejected the normative possibility of occupying one hundred percent of the ground floor and incorporated a courtyard, around which the master suite and the father’s studio were located. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezOn this same floor, access from the street, converting the garage into the vestibule (or the vestibule into garage). A dark space –black- that admits both, persons and cars. The area for day use was placed on the first floor (one flight up), on the level of the terrace formed by the ground floor roof. The kitchen, dining room and living room inter-relate without more than the necessary, minimum impediments. Generating a succession of diaphanous and continuous spaces from the façade to the street –kitchen- until the back of the lot –terrace-. The stairway was not interference, it is light and precise. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezThe children’s three individual bedrooms were situated on the second floor, in the front , tied to the stairway by means of a large studio, which becomes a common playroom. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezThe stairway- in open fretwork from the first floor is defined with great precision, since a great transparency is demanded of it, both in order to permit the greatest entry of natural light as well as to not block the relationship of the common spaces on the first floor. This tool is connected to a large skylight that captures natural light and ventilation. In defending these objectives, the normative possibility of making an attic crawl space was rejected and the building is covered with an inverted flat roof. Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezThe façade- our façades- in an urban situation as described seeks to recover the compositional values of the traditional façades of most of the houses in the surrounding area. Vertical windows, with opaque shutters, over a background that never questions the wall character of the neighbouring buildings. The façade, with the shutters closed, tends to an absolute silence, altered only by the submerged and coloured door.Save this picture!© Pedro Antonio PérezProject gallerySee allShow lessIn Progress: Green Roof Residence / LIJO RENY architectsArticlesFree CompetitionArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/69127/127-house-h-arquitectes Clipboard “COPY” “COPY”last_img read more

  • GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress

    first_img Facebook Twitter GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress SHARE GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 14, 2016 A national standard for food products that contain genetically modified ingredients is finally on the President’s desk.  The House passed its first GMO label bill a year ago, but it took passage of a state law in Vermont to goad the Senate into action. Just ahead of a 6 week recess, the House passed the Senate version of the bill on Thursday and it is now on its way to the President. Farm and commodity organizations praised the quick House action on an issue that was more about biotechnology than food safety. “Today, our representatives in the House built upon last week’s work in the Senate, taking another important step toward bringing consistency to the marketplace,” said NCGA President Chip Bowling. “This achievement was made possible as members of the food and agricultural value chain came together as never before to advance a solution that works for farmers, food companies and, most importantly, consumers.” AFBF President Zippy Duvall said, “House passage of GMO disclosure legislation means we now begin the work of putting in place a uniform, national labeling system that will provide balanced, accurate information to consumers. Genetically engineered crops have a decades-long track record of safety and benefits for agricultural productivity and our environment.”  American Soybean Association President Richard Wilkins said, “We believe this thoughtfully-crafted compromise provides consumers with the information they need, without stigmatizing a safe and sustainable food technology.” Home Indiana Agriculture News GMO Label Issue Finally Clears Congress Previous articleMonsanto, BASF, Resume Talks on AcquisitionNext articleIndiana Ag will be a part of Governor’s Billion Dollar Plan Gary Truitt The President is expected to sign the measure, but don’t expect GMO opposition to go away.

According to the judges in charge of the case, the three men could receive sentences ranging from 40 years to life imprisonment under article 192 of the penal code.“We welcome this conviction, we look forward to the sentencing and we like to think that the thorough investigation by the special prosecutor for organized crime is indicative of a desire by the authorities to reestablish justice in Honduras,” said Camille Soulier, head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “We hope this case will set a positive precedent and we urge the authorities to show the same commitment to resolving all crimes of violence against journalists, in order to end the impunity that has become the norm.”More than 40 Honduran journalists have been gunned down in the past ten years. The most emblematic cases include those of:- Aníbal Barrow, the host of the political show “Aníbal Barrow y nada más” on Globo TV, whose dismembered and partially burned body was found in July 2013, 11 days after he was kidnapped near San Pedro Sula, in the northern department of Cortés. The authorities vowed to catch those responsible but no one has ever been brought to trial.- Globo TV cameraman Manuel Murillo Varela, whose bullet-riddled body was found in Tegucigalpa on 24 October 2013.Honduras in ranked 129th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index. 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Organisation News Receive email alerts Newscenter_img Reports HondurasAmericas May 13, 2021 Find out more RSF begins research into mechanisms for protecting journalists in Latin America News RSF’s 2020 Round-up: 50 journalists killed, two-thirds in countries “at peace” December 28, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Honduras Help by sharing this information last_img read more
