Various Syracuse organizations officially rename student section the ‘Ozone’

first_imgThe student section now formerly known as “Otto’s Army” has a new name, Syracuse Athletics announced on Wednesday.Through a collaborative effort with Otto’s Army, the university’s residence hall association, Greek Life and Student Association, the decision has been made to refer to the student section at home games as the ‘Ozone.’In effect, the naming draws a distinction between Otto’s Army, which still exists as a student organization on campus, and the student section as a whole at home games, which includes many students who are not members of Otto’s Army. The release notes that OA will still be involved on game days, too.“The student fan group that bears the same name will continue to lead the cheers at all Syracuse University athletic events,” the release reads, in part.Syracuse opens the 2019-20 athletics season in the Carrier Dome on Saturday, when the football team hosts No. 1 Clemson at 7:30 p.m.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments Published on September 11, 2019 at 8:35 pm Contact Andrew: aegraham@syr.edu | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Gibraltar underlines that Tax Treaty will have no impact on employees status

first_img Winamax maintains Granada CF sponsorship despite bleak Spanish outlook August 19, 2020 StumbleUpon Share Submit Share SBC Magazine Issue 10: Kaizen Gaming rebrand and focus for William Hill CEO August 25, 2020 Andrea Vota – Jdigital’s challenge of Spanish restrictions is led by logic and rationale August 13, 2020 Related Articles The Gibraltar government has communicated to its business community that changes to laws agreed under its ‘Tax Treaty’ mandate with Spain should not impact employee rights.Last March, Gibraltar and Spain’s tax authority agreed to terms established under a ‘Tax Treaty’ related to the tax status of individuals working in Gibraltar and residing in Spain.From the start 2020, in accordance with Spanish laws, Individuals who spend more than 183 days out of the year in Spain, whose partner is a Spanish resident, who own a regular home in Spain or who keep two-thirds of their assets on Spanish territory, will have to pay taxes in Spain.On 1 November, Gibraltar government issued a statement to business stakeholders underlining that Tax Treaty terms, had not changed the British Overseas Territory’s existing frameworks on tax status.Gibraltar news sources stated that the government had been forced to issue its statement, following reports that a betting company (reported to be William Hill) had banned its employees from working from home.In its communication, the Gibraltar government underlined that for individuals Tax Treaty terms simply ‘set out the reality of Spanish tax law as it existed before the treaty’.Gibraltar government reminds businesses that relevant Spanish tax legislation has always had the potential to impact entities operating in the British Overseas Territory“This latest development is merely an example of commercial entities reminding employees to act in keeping with long-established principles of management and control if they are resident outside of Gibraltar, and has nothing to do with anything new in the tax treaty.” The Gibraltar government details in its statement“The clarity the treaty provides allows companies to remind their employees, in a measured manner, to regularise their own positions as we move forward in a new environment of cross-border tax certainty, but where the rules as to management and control remain unchanged.”last_img read more

Xenophobia: Madagascar second nation to boycott South Africa

first_imgMadagascar has joined Zambia in calling off a football match against South Africa in the wake of xenophobic attacks in Johannesburg and Pretoria.On Wednesday, the Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) pulled out of hosting South Africa’s “Bafana Bafana” in Lusaka Saturday, citing “prevailing security concerns.”The South African Football Association (SAFA) turned to Madagascar for a hastily arranged friendly in Orlando on the eastern edge of Johannesburg.But the Bafana Bafana Twitter page said Thursday the game would no longer take place.“SAFA regrets to inform the public that the match between Bafana Bafana and Madagascar scheduled for this coming Saturday (7 September) has been called off after the visitors (Madagascar) decided to withdraw from the encounter,” the statement read.READ: Zambia calls off match with South Africa because of xenophobic violence READ: South Africa closes embassies in Nigeria, fearing reprisal attacksZambia’s university students burn the sign outside the South African Embassy in Lusaka.‘Upsetting’Speaking to CNN Sport, SAFA spokesperson Dominic Chimhavi said the players and staff were “shocked” by the news and were “still figuring out what to do next.”“Apparently [Madagascar] were on their way to the airport when they received a call from the government telling them that they were not allowed to board the plane for South Africa,” Chimhavi said. “Naturally this is upsetting for all involved.” Chimhavi suggested recent events in South Africa must have played a part in Madagascar’s decision.“I think we both can guess why they’ve done this,” he said. “It is pretty obvious what is happening in South Africa.”In a statement on its Facebook page, the Malagasy Federation of Football said it was “honored” to be considered to play South Africa but after consultation with various agencies in the country it was deemed “wise” to decline the invitation on security grounds.A demonstrator holds a sign during a protest against xenophobia outside of the main gate of the South African High Commission in Abuja, Nigeria. ‘Proud to represent Africa’Violence erupted in the South African capital Pretoria last week following the shooting of a local taxi driver, allegedly by a foreign drug dealer.This incident proved to be the spark in an already volatile environment. Anti-foreign sentiments from politicians and public officials have fostered ill feelings between South Africans and African migrants competing for meager opportunities in the most unequal country on the planet.On Monday, a pamphlet attributed to a group called the Sisionke Peoples Forum circulate circulated on social media and accused foreigners living in South Africa of stealing jobs and selling drugs.“We condemn what is happening,” Chimhavi said. “We are proud to represent Africa on the pitch and to play against our African brothers in continental tournaments. We call for an end to the violence and destruction.”At least 189 people have been arrested in connection to looting and assault while five people have reportedly been killed.

South Africa has temporarily closed its diplomatic missions in Lagos and Abuja in Nigeria, fearing reprisal attacks against its citizens.These decisions by the Zambian and Madagascan football associations echo the international boycotts of South African athletes and teams during the apartheid era. Between 1960 and 1992, South Africa was barred from competing at the Olympic Games while the Springbok rugby, cricket and football teams were barred from World Cups and officially sanctioned international games.With political and corporate leaders in Ghana, Kenya, Ethiopia other African nations slamming the South African government and its people for this unchecked xenophobia, there may be more teams declining to play ball with their neighbors.last_img read more

Adrian Gonzalez, Yasiel Puig power Dodgers over Mets

first_imgNEW YORK >> After 10 pitching changes and more than 4 hours of baseball, the Dodgers did what they usually do against the New York Mets lately.Win.Adrian Gonzalez homered again in his second consecutive three-hit game and Yasiel Puig reached base five times to lead the Dodgers over the skidding Mets 9-4 Tuesday night.Josh Beckett (2-1) helped himself with an RBI single in his second straight victory after 14 winless starts, but the fiery right-hander left frustrated after failing to get an out in the sixth inning. “I was mad at myself,” Beckett said. “Last thing you want to do is kill your bullpen the first game of a series.”Carl Crawford scored three times and stole two bases. Gonzalez connected for a two-run shot in a four-run fifth, when L.A. chased Rafael Montero (0-2) from his second major league start.“Tonight was great,” Gonzalez said. “We took walks, putting pressure on and putting up runs. We tallied up a pretty easy win there at the end.”Dodgers third baseman Juan Uribe limped off with a right hamstring injury after his ninth-inning double. Puig, who had three hits and scored twice to extend his recent tear at the plate, delivered an RBI single during a three-run ninth.Curtis Granderson (three hits) and Lucas Duda homered in the sixth for the Mets, who dropped to 5-13 in May with their fifth defeat in six games. Twice they loaded the bases with one out and came up empty in the opener of a nine-game homestand. New York (20-24) fell a season-worst four games under .500 and lost for the 10th time in 11 meetings with the Dodgers dating to July 1, 2012.The teams combined to use 12 pitchers in a yawner that took 4 hours, 8 minutes — a minute short of tying the Mets record for a nine-inning game.“It seemed like we were on the field the majority of the game and that’s not good,” New York third baseman David Wright said.Puig drew a leadoff walk in the fifth and Gonzalez hit his 11th homer into the Dodgers’ bullpen in right-center. The streaking slugger has eight hits in his past 12 at-bats, including a home run in Sunday’s loss at Arizona.“I’m just staying with it all season long. Not going to change a thing,” Gonzalez said.Matt Kemp doubled and Crawford’s RBI single chased Montero (0-2), who arrived in the majors with a reputation for fine control. One of the team’s top pitching prospects, the 23-year-old right-hander has walked six and served up three home runs in 10 1/3 big league innings.“I’m going to find out what he’s trying to do. If he’s trying to pitch to the corners, in this league you’ve got to earn that, you’ve got to earn the corners,” Mets manager Terry Collins said.“Once the umpire knows you’ll pound that strike zone, he’ll give you some stuff. He fell behind a lot tonight. That’s why he threw a lot of pitches. We’ve got to get him to realize he’s good enough to get strike one and go from there.”Uribe fisted a run-scoring single over a drawn-in infield against Jeurys Familia to cap the outburst.Puig, the co-NL player of the week, doubled off the top of the right-field wall in the sixth and scored on Hanley Ramirez’s single to make it 6-1.Earlier in the game, the exuberant right fielder appeared to lose track of the outs when he fired a throw to third base after catching a fly ball to end the third inning. That drew chuckles from Puig’s teammates — and a long stare from a perplexed Uribe.After giving up three runs on two homers and a double in the sixth, an animated Beckett gestured with his arm when catcher A.J. Ellis came out for a visit that preceded a walk to Wilmer Flores.As he waited to be removed by manager Don Mattingly, Beckett bounced the ball on the back of the mound and appeared to be venting to teammates about a pitch “right down the middle.”“He hit a wall, which is unusual for him,” Mattingly said. “It happened quick.”J.P. Howell struck out three in 1 1/3 scoreless innings and Chris Withrow retired Duda and Flores with the bases loaded to preserve a two-run lead in the seventh.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

However, why would anyone subject him/herself to the criticism and humiliation by Councilman Valentine? It is appalling how he has treated recent candidates for city boards. And when we do get people on these boards who actually serve a worthwhile function, Eckert kicks them off.

Report Reply 2 replies · active 277 weeks ago +2 Vote up Vote down Reconsidering · 278 weeks ago Mr. Buellesfeld closed his guest editorial by stating, “I believe it is of critical importance that the City Council, Mayor, & City Manager give these individuals their total support or the city authority boards have lost all credibility.” In my humble opinion, the recent Housing Authority debacle that unfolded in both public City meetings and the comments section of sumnernewscow.com has and will continue to severely hinder the pool from which the council will be able to draw qualified candidates to serve on public boards. Watching what took place with the WHA Board erased my confidence in the council as it relates to the working relationship with its various appointed board members. Councilman Valentine was able to ramrod the council on this particular issue and did so with seemingly no consequences. Citizens that may have been considering a board will mostly likely not run or, at best, are reconsidering. Whether justified or not, I’m afraid that the perceived lack of trust coupled with ineffective communication protocols will turn away many that may have been considering a board.

The greatest leaders were those who took the most grief. I’m reading a biography on Abraham Lincoln. Here’s a man who had the courage and conviction of doing what he thought was right. He was crucified by so many factions – not just from the south, but from north radicals. Lincoln’s own cabinet, filled with what were once his political adversaries, weren’t always supportive of him. He almost didn’t get re-elected and when he did he was shortly assassinated thereafter. He is now considered the greatest leader of our history. Public service isn’t easy and it takes courage. But those who do it, will forever be remembered, long after criticism at a public meeting or a disgruntled comment on this site.

Then you have an over zealous council member that loves nothing more than to pander to the camera make mean spirited comments towards the only people who want to serve on those boards, and next you will find yourself with no one willing to serve. It will be a very sad day for sure when volunteers like myself just quit being willing to put yourself out there on such a very high limb knowing that there is no net and at least one council member with an crazy axe to grind.

There must be a lot to the story to have 2 people step down. It is a hard position for people to take when SRMC is in a financial crisis. Has there been any financial updates since hiring the new surgeon? People who are qualified and want to help probably feel the track record of the previous board and the hospital problems are not worth the time, effort and ridicule. Unqualified board members could be blamed for a lot of SRMC past problems. Lots of professionals have left the hospital and some had to do with dealing with an unqualified board. Before Dr MCcue there wasnt anyone on the board with any healthcare knowledge. To bad Shelley left because he seemed to have such a positive image on the board. Maybe its time to look into other options to oversee the hospital than begging people for warm bodies.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments EDITOR’S NOTE — The following is a guest editorial written by J.P. Buellesfeld, who is owner of Buellesfeld Financial Services Inc.Recently, Steve Shelley and Kelli McComb resigned from the Health Care Authority Board which oversees Sumner Regional Medical Center. The city of Wellington is taking applications to feel the positions and people can do so at the city of Wellington offices at 317 S. Washington. By J.P. BuellesfeldJ.P. BuellesfeldThe Health Care Authority Board for the City of Wellington currently has two openings out of a five member board.  The Health Care Authority Board is the most important authority board in Sumner County as it is 100 percent in control of the governance of Sumner Regional Medical Center.Sumner Regional Medical Center is one of the largest employers in Sumner County.  The Council of the City of Wellington had no applicants for the first (15) day application period that ended March 25, 2015.  The City Council is currently accepting applications in the second (15) day application period through April 13, 2015.  The City Council will then be appointing two new members to the Health Care Authority Board.  I believe now is a good time to explain how critically important this decision is.In the case of Verret v. United States, a Texas federal district court upheld an Internal Revenue Service determination that the chairman of a non-profit hospital’s board of trustees was personally liable for the hospital’s non-payment of federal withholding taxes, Stephen Verret had been chairman of the board of Doctors Hospital in Groves, Texas. On appeal, the U.S. Federal Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit affirmed the district court’s decision.The IRS has repeatedly demonstrated that it will be extremely aggressive in classifying board members, as “responsible persons,” and holding them personally liable for unpaid federal withholding taxes.  The IRS has also repeatedly demonstrated that it will treat non-profits no differently than their for-profit counterparts.  The IRS generally considers board members as responsible persons, and the federal courts usually agree absent strong evidence to the contrary.Resolution No. 4080 allows any member of the Health Care Authority Board to be removed by the city manager, at his discretion, for nonfeasance.  The legal definition of nonfeasance is the failure to act when action is required.  This could be something as simply voting against a motion at a Health Care Authority Board meeting.The intent of this guest editorial is to demonstrate the great commitment that is asked of an authority board member for the City of Wellington, Kansas.  Authority board members face great time commitments, receive no compensation, are often severely criticized for making difficult decisions.  They also face possible impeachment from the board for nonfeasance and can eventually face personal liability for federal payroll withholding taxes.This is not meant to suggest that federal payroll withholding taxes are not current at Sumner Regional Medical Center.  I believe it is of critical importance that the City Council, Mayor, & City Manager give these individuals their total support or the city authority boards have lost all credibility.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

NCAA to offer spring athletes extra year of eligibility after canceled seasons

first_imgMany athletes were shellshocked upon learning the news that the NCAA canceled its winter and spring championship events, especially the seniors who missed out on getting to partake in one last March Madness tournament.The decision left many in the sports world, including long-time ESPN analyst Dick Vitale, to call for the NCAA to grant those seniors an extra year of eligibility.  Many were excited about the news, but it still raises a lot of questions. It’s unclear how this decision will affect incoming freshman as teams have limited scholarship numbers.As for the men’s and women’s basketball players who missed out on this year’s NCAA Tournament, as well as other winter athletes, that’s still to be decided.Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, one of the most prominent figures in college basketball, made the case for giving those seniors an extra year of eligibility.After COVID-19 pandemic wiped out “one of the gifts that our country has” in March Madness, Duke’s Coach K calls for “open mindedness” and says NCAA should give senior players an extra year of eligibility.https://t.co/nsoeKBDcS5— Stephen Wiseman (@stevewisemanNC) March 13, 2020 What about the @NCAA giving the seniors an extra yr of eligibility ?

Season Sellers on their ’26 Hustle’

first_imgWith 26 right around the corner, everyone is trying to make the season special for their families and themselves. Among the surplus of food, drink and merriment, there is also a surplus of commercial activity. This is a time when “season sellers” — ordinary, people who are not involved in regular business or commercial activity — join the hustle to sell anything from used clothes, shoes, teddy bears, hand bags, things that passers-by can find at least temporarily appealing to give them a feel of the independence day season. There is some profit to be made, and a means to strengthen ones financial position to make it through the holiday and beyond. The Daily Observer spoke with some of these “season sellers” to gauge their outlook on the commercial environment this season and more. Winston Rogers, 34, is actually a professional driver who has been out of a job for few months. “Joining this business was a way to keep myself busy because nothing was really happening for me and I have my family to support,” he told the Daily Observer. Since he could not find a job, he decided to venture into the slippers business this Independence Day season, with the little cash he had. As far back as the last week of June, Rogers says, he started his season hustle. He paid US $150 for a bag of slippers, spent LD $100 on soap to clean and make ready for sale. “After everything, I sell one pair of slippers for LD $500, but actually it was good.”“I used to sell two bags of slippers per week at least, but now that has slowed down and I don’t know why or whether it’s because of the reopening of schools,” he said. The Ministry of Education has scheduled the opening of schools for September, which means parents have only the month of August to prepare their school-going children for the coming semester. When asked how much profit he expects from his seasonal business, Rogers declined to respond, but said that everything is fine, despite the slow pace of business as the holiday draws closer.George Seke, another season seller who trades in the same business on Johnson Street, intimated that business is not going as expected, especially were has spent close to US $300 on shoes with the intent of selling everything before the holiday. “We are getting limited customers as compared to [few weeks] before. In fact, now we have to reduce our price just to get something for us and our families to eat at home,” said Seke. Hawa Kollie, who only started selling used clothes (do-ka-flag) during the second week of July, agreed that business much slower now, especially during the few days leading up to the holiday.Ms. Kollie, a regular season seller, said she used to buy a bale of used clothes for US$150 but this time, she paid US$165. “After selling, I generate not less than 190. Sometimes it is loss-and-gain. Some of the bales we buy don’t have good clothes that people will want to buy. She agrees with Rogers that customers are holding their money now to pay their children school fees and other things next month. Like Rogers, season sellers get better results when they set up business early enough ahead of the holiday. The few days leading up to the holiday finds the market saturated with what they perceive as “more sellers than buyers”, which forces nearly all sellers to drastically drop the prices of their goods so as to sell all before the holiday comes. After the holiday, anything left on hand goes up for auction or donation. Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
