Senate Approves Bill on Charitable Organisations

first_imgThe Senate on Friday (May 24), passed a Bill making provisions for harmonising the treatment of charitable organisations for the purpose of taxation.The legislation seeks to harmonise the various tax statutes, and provide standard definitions for the terms “approved charitable organisation” and “charitable purposes” for tax use.It also amends the Customs Act, the General Consumption Act, the Income Tax Act, the Property Tax Act, the Stamp Duty Act, and the Transfer Tax Act.Called the Charitable Organisation (Tax Harmonisation) (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2013, the Bill was piloted by Minister of Justice, Senator the Hon. Mark Golding.The Bill is considered a structural benchmark within the Extended Fund Facility (EFF) programme between Jamaica and the International Monetary Fund (IMF).In his comments, Senator Golding said the legislation is being introduced because a shared concern has emerged between the Government and the multilaterals in relation to the tax treatment of charitable organizations, which allows for significant revenue loss by way of tax expenditures.“Tax expenditures are ways by which the Government gives up revenue it ought to be collecting or which it has decided not to collect,” Senator Golding said.He noted that the tax treatment across tax types have been dogged by inconsistency in the definition of a Charity and of charitable purposes, leading to an over abundance of waivers.“The result is that in the 2010/11 fiscal year the value of waivers granted to charities was in excess of $4 billion and in 2011/2012 it was in excess of $2 billion,” Mr Golding stated.The legislation also eliminate the need for the exercise of Ministerial power to grant waivers of certain taxes to entities considered to be dedicated to charitable purposes. It insteadconfers that power to the appropriate tax authorities – Customs or Tax Administration Jamaica.In his comments, Leader of Opposition Business in the Senate, Senator Arthur Williams, while supporting the legislation, said the appropriate regulations should be put in place to guide the systems and processes by which application for relief is to be granted.For his part, Senator Lambert Brown supported the legislation, but expressed concern about the amendment that removes the power of the Minister to non-elected officials.“I would have preferred to see us as a country growing our economy to the point where we don’t rely on others to tell us to remove the discretion from the elect of the people,” Senator Brown said.In his comment, Senator K.D. Knight said the harmonisation of the various tax statutes was a “good thing” and was necessary.The provisions in the Act will be incorporated into the proposed Charities Act, which will be brought to both Houses of Parliament in September.The Charities Act is now with the Office of the Chief Parliamentary Counsel for drafting. This proposed Bill seeks to facilitate the proper supervision of entities carrying out charitable activities.By Latonya Linton, JIS Reporterlast_img read more

27th Annual Divas Simply Singing Event

first_imgDIVAS Simply Singing!, the longest consecutive running musical AIDS benefit in the United States, hosts its 27th annual fundraiser for The D.I.V.A. Foundation at the Taglyan Cultural Center in Hollywood California Saturday, December 9.27th Annual Divas Simply SingingProduced and hosted by Tony Award nominee, Spirit Award Winner, honored AIDS activist and D.I.V.A. Foundation Founder Sheryl Lee Ralph, the event will be most intimate gathering in the organization’s history – a cocktails, dinner and evening of song and entertainment in a unique club setting that will give all in attendance an up close experience with the performing artists.“We are always trying to find creative ways to continue to raise HIV/AIDS awareness,” Ralph says. “Anytime you put on an event for over 25 years, there’s the danger of becoming old, too familiar and having the community take you for granted. So this year, we thought we would do something different and host it in a smaller venue that brings everyone closer together for maximum interaction and enjoyment.”This year’s talent includes R&B greats Kenny Lattimoreand Rahsaan Patterson, Original “Dreamgirl” Jennifer Holliday, Chicago soul singer (and “The Voice” Season 3 contestant) Terisa Griffin and “Black-ish” actress and singer Jenifer Lewis, who will also be signing copies of her new book “The Mother of Black Hollywood.” The evening will also feature Todrick Hall, multi-hyphenate and former “American Idol” contestant turned Broadway star (“Kinky Boots”), who is this year’s recipient of the The DIVA Foundation’s Vision Award.“With his passionate artistic activism, powerful songs and ability to connect with and promote a sense of better understanding with gay kids, straight kids, trans kids and so many others finding their way in the world, I believe Todrick will continue to have a great impact on our industry and the world,” says Ralph. “To use the vernacular term, he is truly WOKE!”DIVAS Simply Singing! will also honor the drivers for Project Angel Food, who selflessly give their time to help feed and nourish the sick as they battle critical illness. For nearly 35 years, volunteers and staff cook and deliver nutritious meals, free of charge, to homes throughout Los Angeles County to alleviate hunger, prevent malnutrition and returns their clients to health. Some of the proceeds from this year’s event will go to support Project Angel Food.Continuing to serve as a loving tribute for those infected and affected by HIV/AIDs, the goal of DIVAS Simply Singing! is to raise a quarter of The D.I.V.A. Foundation’s operating budget to ensure that they can continue their efforts to erase stigma, raise awareness and promote HIV/AIDS prevention through arts and education. Over the years, DIVAS Patti LaBelle, Chaka Khan, Teena Marie, Tremaine Hawkins, Karen Clark Sheard, Yolanda Adams, LaShun Pace, Dottie Peoples, Jennifer Hudson, and many more have raised their voices in song on the DIVAS stage.An acronym for “Divinely Inspired Victoriously Aware,” The D.I.V.A. Foundation is a national not-for-profit 501c3 charitable organization founded Ralph in 1990 as a memorial to the many friends she lost to HIV/AIDS as an original company member of “Dreamgirls” on Broadway.The foundation stems from Sheryl’s deep concern for the lack of attention given to AIDS in the early years and its potential to become a health risk not only for men but women and children.The D.I.V.A. Foundation uniquely uses the transformational power of the arts as a vehicle to raise funds, awareness, erase the stigma still connected to HIV/AIDS, mental wellness, and educate people about STDs including HIV, Hepatitis C, and other life threatening diseases. As their mission statement says, “We simply dare to care.”The Taglyan Cultural Center is located at 1201 Vine St., Hollywood CA 90038.For tickets and more info, click here.last_img read more

We are working extremely hard for political solution to Syria crisis –

Following a meeting initiated by Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov on the sidelines of the G20 summit in St. Petersburg, Lakhdar Brahimi said the UN has been working hard to prepare for the so-called Geneva II meeting, which would include representatives of Syrian parties as well as senior United States, Russian and UN officials.The goal of the conference would to be to achieve a political solution to the conflict in Syria through a comprehensive agreement between the Government and the opposition for the full implementation of the Geneva communiqué of 30 June 2012.Yet, he said, the fate of the conference was “in danger” because of the alleged use of chemical weapons on the outskirts of Damascus, the Syrian capital, on 21 August, “and what may follow as a consequence of that.” “I have drawn attention to the participants of this meeting today to the possible consequences…I think the United Nations [has no] alternative but too continue to pay close attention to the situation in Syria,” Mr. Brahimi said. The biomedical and environmental samples taken by the UN chemical weapons inspection team from the alleged 21 August attack in the Ghouta area outside Damascus are currently being analyzed in four European laboratories. Scientists are working “around the clock” to ensure a rapid result but one that also respects the highest professional standards and without compromising its integrity.Results of the analyses will be shared with Mr. Ban, who will then share them with the 15-member Security Council and all 193 Member States.Mr. Brahimi warned that no country is allowed to take the law into its own hands and urged that any action on Syria be taken to the Security Council. “International law says that no country is allowed to take the law into their hands; they have to go through the Security Council,” Mr. Brahimi stressed.Mr. Ban had asked Mr. Brahimi to join him in Russia to push for a political solution to the Syrian conflict. Addressing world leaders at a working dinner last night, Mr. Ban urged the leaders of the Permanent Five members of the Security Council – China, France, Russia, United Kingdom and United States – as well as from some of the Council’s non-permanent members to “discharge their responsibility fully and for the sake of the people of Syria.” read more

The UN chief also called on the DRC authorities to investigate any acts of violence and ensure the perpetrators are held accountable. In addition, the Secretary-General in his statement encouraged the new government led by Prime Minister Samy Badibanga to take concrete steps, in line with the 18 October political agreement.

The total number of days lost was the eighth lowest since records began in 1891. The ONS said the amount of industrial action has reduced significantly in the last 30 years.

Future iPods could charge through nanowires embedded in our bodies

first_imgWith every passing week, our gadgets become ever more power hungry… and it becomes increasingly difficult to keep them charged. There are many possible solutions to that problem out there. Some companies are concentrating on improving battery capacity, while others work on energy efficiency, and even other works on faster ways to charge our gadgets, or to juice the up from alternate fuel sources.Consider today’s report firmly in the last category, but it sounds a heck of a lot cooler than just charging our iPhones from a collection of solar cells: Dr. Zhong Lin Wang of the Georgia Institute of Technology is working on a technology that would allow our own bodies to charge our smartphones, lapops and tablets in the future.AdChoices广告His inventions are called nanogenerators, and the idea is centered around zinc oxide nanowires, which generate electricity when flexed. In principal, the nanowires are small enough to sew or embed into pretty much everything. Five hundred nanowires, in fact, can fit into a single human hair. So if they were embedded in your pants, every step you take would generate a charge of electricity that could be funneled into an iPod or a battery pack; if embedded in your shirt, you’d generate a jolt of juice everyt ime you moved your arms. “Our nanogenerators are poised to change lives in the future. Their potential is only limited by one’s imagination,” said Dr. Wang about his invention. So let’s imagine further. Imagine your body being implanted with thousands upon thousands of small nanotubes, in which ever palpation of your heart, every flex of your muscles, every breath you inhale or exhale is going right to your iPod’s battery. Pretty neat, huh? We’ll all be walking portable gadget chargers before we even know it.Read more at Telegraphlast_img read more

Mark Philippoussis father arrested on suspicion of child sexual abuse

first_imgThe father of former Australian tennis star Mark Philippoussis has been arrested over allegations he molested two minors.Greek Australian Nikolaos Philippoussis was taken into custody on Tuesday after being arrested at his home in Mira Mesa in northern San Diego, with police reporting he offered no resistance. The 68-year-old tennis coach was taken to the downtown San Diego Central Jail following an investigation conducted without his knowledge that was based on at least two complaints to local police from students he was coaching.“He didn’t know we were coming,” said Lieutenant Greg Rylaarsdam from the San Diego County Sheriff’s Department Central Investigations Unit.“In this particular case we are in the infancy of the investigation. “On lots of cases we go all the way to the end and get all of our facts in order and all of the evidence lined up and then we go out and arrest somebody. “But in a case like this where there is the potential of ongoing victimisation we developed probable cause and went out and arrested him when we had that.”The alleged victims according to reports by the San Diego Union-Tribune were under the age of 14.Philippoussis was booked into jail on 14 counts of committing lewd or lascivious acts with a child under the age of 14, including two counts of committing sexual acts with a child younger than 10 years old.“They’re felony charges which carry state prison potential,” Lieutenant Rylaarsdam said.“There are two victims, both minors, and we’re not identifying their sex at this time. “At this point, nothing indicates that there are other victims, but anyone with information about this case should call us.” Mark Philippoussis with his father Nikolaos. Photo: The New DailyPhilippoussis has been segregated away from mainstream prisoners due to the nature of the complaints. Meanwhile his bail has been set at US$2.5 million (A$3.2 million), and he is set to face arraignment on Friday when he will be asked to enter a plea.

Piratage Sony a encore des ennuis

first_imgPiratage : Sony a encore des ennuisLa page d’accueil de Sony Thaïlande a été victime de phishing tandis qu’un fournisseur d’accès à Internet japonais appartenant au groupe a vu des données clients dérobées. Décidément, Sony n’en finit plus avec les problèmes de piratage informatique. Après la fameuse affaire du Playstation Network, voilà maintenant deux nouveaux problèmes survenus vendredi dernier, révèle ZDnet. C’est d’abord la page d’accueil de Sony Thaïlande qui a été prise pour cible. Celle-ci, victime de phishing, renvoyait vers deux fausses pages du service de carte de crédit italien CartaSi en demandant aux usagers d’entrer leurs identifiants et codes de carte. Manque de chance, durant le même laps de temps, on apprenait que So-Net, un FAI appartenant à Sony, avait été victime d’une intrusion informatique en début de semaine dernière. Cette intrusion a consisté en un vol des points des clients de So-Net, ceux-ci pouvant être échangés contre des produits Sony ou de l’argent virtuel. Toutes ces affaires successives montrent qu’il reste beaucoup de travail à Sony pour sécuriser ses systèmes.Le 23 mai 2011 à 12:58 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Barrow Awards Medal Of Personal Sacrifice To Uniformed Men

first_imgBy Momodou JarjuDozens of Security Officers, who played a lead role in thwarting The Gambia from getting into conflict during the political impasse, were yesterday decorated with medal of “personal sacrifice” by President Adama Barrow at the McCarthy Square in Banjul.The awardees, 90 in number, some believed weren’t serving members of the army at the time, refused to align with former president Yahya Jammeh who refused to concede defeat after accepting the election results barely a week earlier, to protect President Barrow “before, during and after the political impasse that followed the 1st December 2016 elections.”They are being recognised for contributing to successfully installing the democratically elected government of President Barrow at great risk to personal safety, security and position, according to a citation read by Army spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Modou Lamin Sanyang.These non-serving members of the army at the time, working with the ‘coalition security’ (group of civilians), offered security to President Barrow and his team and were recruited into the army when Barrow assumed power.Prominent among the awardees were former Chief of Defence Staff Lieutenant General Ousman Badjie and his Deputy Chief of Defense Staff Major General Yankuba Drammeh, Lietenant General Masanneh Kinteh, the current CDS, formerly Gambian ambassador to Cuba, Mamat O Cham, the current army commander, Private Kaddy Sanneh and several others.Meanwhile, delivering his speech of the 54th Independence anniversary of The Gambia, President Barrow said the national day avails Gambia the opportunity to talk about its successes, challenges and progress she registered since nationhood.Barrow said Gambians have acknowledged that sovereignty should be matched by economic independence the capacity to generate resources and funds for investment and judicious spending.“The underlying objective is for all citizens to engage in nation building as a united force. This is the environment that my government has now created for Gambians,” he said.He urged Gambians to love their country and sacrifice in times of need and distress which requires rejecting all forms of socio-political discrimination and extremism disguised as nationalism.“It is essential to develop a deep sense of belonging to our motherland, and commit ourselves to the ideals and values of the nation. We have proven that when we stand united in the cause of the nation, we can achieve a lot,” he said.SUCCESSES REGISTEREDBarrow expressed his proudness of the successes he registered with ‘patriotic citizens’ friends and partners such as legislation, infrastructural development, transitional justice, institutional reform etc. as enshrined in his 2018-2021 NDP and the constitutional review and development process.“Also, amongst the progress registered are the recently launched roads and bridges projects in the Upper River and North Bank Regions. Higher learning institutions, such as The Gambia College twin projects, and health infrastructures are being decentralised to promote inclusive development for all. Working with partners, the education sector is building modern classrooms in various parts of the country to make the learning environment more conducive and accessible. Inroads made within the water and energy sectors are also evident cases in point,” he saidBarrow shared his determination to bridge the country’s economic, political and social gaps across all communities.Unfortunately, he went on, sabotage and destruction of water equipment reveal the extent to which subversive elements and enemies of the nation can go to undermine efforts and discredit his government.“This calls for vigilance to ensure that vandals and saboteurs do not succeed in any way. In contrast, with much humility, I am touched by the immense support given to me and my government by individuals, organizations and friendly nations,” he added.The Gambia, one of the smallest country within mainland Africa was declared independent from the British in 1965 pioneered by Edward Francis Small and attained its status under the leadership of first president Dawda Jawara. Jawara ruled the country for 30 years before second President Yahya Jammeh usurped his reign in a coup in 1994. Third President Adama Barrow assumed power in January 2017 in a surprise defeat in December 2016 election.last_img read more
