Tax on FB Google YouTube but instrument missing

By on September 3, 2019

first_imgA Google search page photo and 3D-printed Facebook like button in front of the Facebook logo by Reuters. The YouTube logo is collectedFinance minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith on Thursday proposed to introduce new provisions in tax laws to realise tax from tech giants – Facebook, Google and YouTube etc – for their earning in Bangladesh.There is a provision for imposing 15 per cent value added tax (VAT) on advertisements on the social media sites but the government has no instrument to collect such tax.The country’s “tax laws were not sufficiently up-to-date to bring all virtual transactions into tax net,” the 85-year-old minister told parliament in his budget speech.“Many foreign entities are earning income in Bangladesh through virtual and digital transactions, but we are not getting adequate tax from them,” he pointed out.Muhith proposed to “to introduce provisions for automatically sharing data of other departments and agencies with tax department”.“This measure will be very useful in combating tax evasion,” he said and emphasized following international good practice while making provisions for taxing the online entities.Imposing tax on IT giants has come to the fore since the High Court on 12 April ordered the government to realise revenue from internet-based service organisations for all kinds of transactions.In its order, the court particularly named several California-based US technology giants — Google, Yahoo!, Facebook, YouTube — and Washington-based US e-commerce company Amazon.The government was asked to collect all types of revenue, including tax at source and other duties, from all types of transactions, including advertisements, domain selling and licence fees from the international internet platforms.The multinational web giants pay few taxes in Europe, for instance.The Newspaper Owners’ Association of Bangladesh (NOAB), in its budget proposal, demanded developing mechanism to bring Facebook and YouTube under the tax net. “They should share a portion of their incomes with the state,” NOAB said in a letter.last_img read more

DACA Back in Court Next Month as Texas Moves to End Program

By on September 2, 2019

first_imgJulián Aguilar/The Texas TribuneSister Janet Gildea of the Catholic Diocese of El Paso shows her support for DACA recipients during a rally in El Paso on March 5, 2018. Several rallies were held across the country to urge lawmakers to act on DACA, including a gathering in Washington, D.C.When the state of Texas successfully halted a proposed 2014 federal immigration program to aid adult immigrants, the state’s attorneys were able to convince federal courts Texas would be irreparably harmed by the implementation of the sweeping initiative.But as the Texas attorney general’s office goes to court next week in an attempt to shut down the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, that argument won’t be as strong because the program has been in place for more than half a decade, attorneys with the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund said Tuesday.On Aug. 8, federal District Judge Andrew Hanen will hear the state’s request to have the program preliminary halted while the issue meanders its way through the federal court system. The hearing comes nearly a year after President Donald Trump promised to end DACA in September, by phasing it out over six months. But three different courts have since ruled that the administration must keep the program —which protects immigrants brought into the U.S. as children from deportation and allows them to obtain a two – year work permit — intact for now.Texas’ success stopping the 2014 program, the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents, or DAPA, hinged partly on how Texas argued that it would be adversely affected if it was allowed to go into effect because the Obama administration overstepped its authority and the state would have to spend million issuing driver’s licenses or other forms of IDs to DAPA recipients.Thomas Saenz, MALDEF’s president and general counsel, said the state’s argument isn’t that strong this time around.“There is no surprise about what is happening, there is no speculation about what injuries might occur to anyone from the program because it has been implemented as an initiative for nearly six years,” he said. “[The argument] would not have nearly as much strength in this circumstance as with DAPA.”Attorneys for MALDEF were allowed to represent nearly two dozen DACA recipients in the case after Hanen allowed them in May to intervene in the lawsuit.MALDEF’s attorneys said the intervention was necessary because Texas and the Trump administration are on the same page with respect to ending DACA — under Trump, the Justice Department isn’t fighting to defend the Obama-era program. If Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, who announced his lawsuit in May, is successful, tens of thousands of Texans would be affected — as of September there were about 120,000 DACA beneficiaries in Texas and more than 800,000 nationwide.But Saenz also argued that no matter how Hanen rules, other federal judges are also hearing DACA cases and their rulings will have equal weight.“If Judge Hanen were to order an injunction … it would not override any order by another district court judge in any of the other pending cases that currently require the administration to continue to operate and grant renewals in the DACA initiative,” he said. “There will need to be further court action.”That means that DACA’s fate could likely end up in the hands of the U.S. Supreme Court. In June, the Department of Justice asked Hanen to delay a possible injunction “so the United States can seek stays of all the DACA injunctions in the respective courts of appeals and the Supreme Court.”Nina Perales, MALDEF’s vice president of litigation, said there’s a slight chance that Hanen will rule next week. She said the Justice Department’s tepid defense of DACA could signal the administration’s hope that the Texas case will be the vehicle to take the issue before the Supreme Court.“It’s fairly clear that the Department of Justice is not acting as true defendant in our case,” Perales said.

Obesity paradox is a myth

By on August 31, 2019

first_img“Obesity paradox,” – the idea that overweight or obese people are not always at increased risk of heart disease – may be a myth, according to a study of nearly 300,000 people. The research, published in the European Heart Journal, shows that the risk of heart and blood vessel problems, such as heart attacks, strokes and high blood pressure, increases as body mass index (BMI) increases beyond a BMI of 22-23.Furthermore, the risk also increases steadily the more fat a person carries around their waist. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfThe study was conducted in 296,535 adults of white European descent who are taking part in the UK Biobank study, and who were healthy at the time they enrolled with the study.UK Biobank recruited from 2006 to 2010, and follow-up data on participants were available up to 2015 for this latest analysis.Researchers at the University of Glasgow in the UK found that people with a BMI between 22-23 had the lowest risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD).As BMI increased above 22, the risk of CVD increased by 13 per cent for every 5.2 increase in women and 4.3 in men. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveCompared to women and men with waist circumferences of 74 and 83 cm respectively, the CVD risk increased by 16 per cent in women and 10 per cent in men for every 12.6 cm and 11.4 cm increase in waist circumference for women and men respectively.Similar increases in CVD risk were seen when the researchers looked at waist-to-hip and waist-to-height ratios and percentage body fat mass – all of which are considered reliable ways to accurately gauge the amount of fat a person carries, also known as adiposity. It is already known that being overweight or obese increases a person’s risk of CVD, as well as other diseases such as cancer.However, there have been studies suggesting that being overweight or obese may not have any effect on deaths from CVD or other causes, and may even be protective especially if people maintain a reasonable level of fitness.This is known as the “obesity paradox.” However, the new study refutes these previous, conflicting findings.”Any public misconception of a potential ‘protective’ effect of fat on heart and stroke risks should be challenged,” said Stamatina Iliodromit, who led the study.”This is the largest study that provides evidence against the obesity paradox in healthy people,” said Iliodromit.”It is possible that the story may be different for those with pre-existing disease because there is evidence that in cancer patients, for instance, being slightly overweight is associated with lower risk, especially as cancer and its treatments can lead to unhealthy weight loss,” she added.”By maintaining a healthy BMI of around 22-23, healthy people can minimise their risk of developing or dying from heart disease,” she said.The researchers suggest that the previous confusion over the “obesity paradox” may be due to many factors that can confound results of studies.For instance, smoking changes the distribution of fat in the body, smokers may have lower weight as smoking depresses appetites and so BMI tends to be lower.Another reason could be that some people have existing but undiagnosed disease, which can often lower their weight but also makes them more likely to die prematurely.last_img read more

Stock Valuations May Rise for Housing Despite Euro Crisis Report

By on August 15, 2019

first_img in Data, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Agents & Brokers Debt Crisis Euro European Union Home Values Homebuilders Housing Affordability Investors Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers 2012-06-14 Tory Barringer Share Stock Valuations May Rise for Housing Despite Euro Crisis: Reportcenter_img Despite the deteriorating situation in Europe, the United States housing market’s recent gains should drive up stocks valuations for building products companies in the near future, “”Barclays””:http://group.barclays.com/home said in a report Tuesday.[IMAGE]Barclays’ U.S. Building Products & Homebuilding report shows that valuations for building products stocks under the institution’s coverage are in the lower half of their historical trading ranges, largely due to “”fairly lackluster”” first-quarter earnings caused by lag between home purchases and building products sales. Financial crises in the euro zone are also driving down building products stocks for companies with European exposure. While these issues have prompted Barclays to lower some of its estimates for fiscal years 2012 and 2013, Barclays analyst Stephen Kim said that the Europe-related pullback may present opportunities for investors in building products stocks.├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£We acknowledge that the ongoing difficulties in the Eurozone will likely pressure 2Q12 earnings for many of the companies; accordingly, we are revising down estimates to reflect our new base case of European sales down 10 percent in FY12. “”However, we also believe that investors should take note of the potential for any European-related weakness to be outweighed by growing sales to the strengthening U.S. residential market,├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬Ø Kim wrote in the report.The report goes on to speculate that the housing market in the United States will still be ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£in the early stages of a cyclical recovery├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬Ø in June 2013 and that the commercial market’s 18-month lag to the residential market will be ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£signaling an imminent turn.├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬Ø Barclays believes that valuations at that time will be up at the higher end of the group├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós historical [COLUMN_BREAK]ranges, explaining the institution├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós price target for each stock.While Barclays believes current conditions create opportunities in both homebuilders and building products stocks, it favors products companies for their strong brands, positive cash flow, and dominant market shares. The company named Mohawk Industries Inc. as its top pick, citing ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£an attractive mix of European and U.S. housing exposures, a surprisingly strong and entrepreneurial base of operations in Europe, and a forthcoming boost to its European margins from reduced amortization expense that we do not believe the market expects.├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬ØA visit to Mohawk├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós Unilin operation in Belgium (the division ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£least well understood├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬Ø by investors, the report says) bolstered Barclay├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós optimism in Mohawk├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós European operations. In addition, a modest sales exposure to Europe combined with significant exposure to the United States gave the financial institution reason to pick Mohawk as a good buying opportunity.Barclays also expressed high hopes for Owens Corning Inc., owing largely to the institution├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔÇ×┬ós expectations of strong performance in roofing and insulation sales. As far as the building products market as a whole goes, Barclays believes that market recovery of new residential construction and residential remodeling will be linked. The recent rise in home prices is expected to drive up demand for products as homeowners start taking up large-scale remodeling projects.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

By on August 11, 2019

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling But as the 24-year-old noted, there are increased expectations, both from himself and everyone else.“Alex has improved and in 16 games he would have been a double-digit sack guy last year,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. “He’s just got to stay healthy.”The Cardinals spent some of their offseason adding to their defense, bringing in linebackers LaMarr Woodley and Sean Weatherspoon along with defensive linemen Corey Peters and Corey Redding as free agents, as well as drafting Markus Golden, Shaquille Riddick and Rodney Gunter. Some of the additions, like Woodley, Golden and Riddick, are expected to help bolster the pass rush, though all come with question marks. In Okafor, the team has someone it knows can get the job done.“I had a full offseason, no hampering injuries,” he said. “This is the first one I’ve ever had. I can already see the strength gains in the weight room and I think that will make a significant difference on the field.“And I’m excited about that.” – / 20 Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo TEMPE, Ariz. — For Alex Okafor, 2014 was hopefully the beginning.After appearing in just one game as a rookie in 2013 due to a biceps injury, he went on to play in 13 for the Arizona Cardinals, coming up with a team-leading eight sacks. As a team the Cardinals tallied 35, the ninth-worst mark in the NFL.Arizona would no doubt like to get after the quarterback more, with the former fourth-round pick out of Texas one of the players who will lead the way. “We brought in some guys that can come off the edge with some heat, so I’m excited about that,” Okafor said after a mini-camp practice. “But just as far as myself, I’ve got to get better each year and I’ve got to be that guy this year.“Last year, I was able to do some of the things I did because the offenses weren’t game planning against me. Now I’ve got the expectations of them, knowing that I’ll be that guy this year, so I’ve got to make those adjustments as well.”Okafor said those adjustments include “a little bit of everything,” including more film study, getting stronger and more able to fight through a double team.Though the biggest change may be simply staying healthy.Okafor missed the first three games of the 2014 season due to a quadriceps injury, and after making his debut in the team’s Week 4 loss to the Denver Broncos — primarily because another Arizona defender, Matt Shaughnessy, was hurt — went on to prove that if on the field, he can get after the quarterback.At 6-foot-4 and 261 pounds, Okafor certainly looks the part of an impact player. And in leading the team in sacks without playing a full 16 games, he proved capable of filling the role. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactlast_img read more

Foreign experts suggest LNG plant be in private hands

By on August 9, 2019

first_imgBy Elias HazouFOREIGN consultants hired by the government have thrown a spanner in the works by suggesting Cyprus should consider leaving a mooted gas liquefaction terminal in the hands exclusively of private investors.Politis, which broke the story on Sunday, writes that Gas Strategies, a London-based consultancy, has outlined for the government three main options regarding the LNG project: a complete absence of the state from the multi-billion investment; holding a minority stake in the joint venture; and retaining a controlling interest.The daily said also that Gas Strategies – hired by the government to produce a study – presented their findings to the President and senior officials at the Palace the previous weekend.Energy minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis confirmed to Politis the three options put forward by the consultants, but declined to elaborate on the findings.The minister went on to stress that no decision has been made, but seemed to hint to the paper that the government is reviewing all options.Up until now, the government’s position had been that the state must retain a controlling stake in the LNG project, for both financial and national security reasons.The LNG terminal is estimated to cost anywhere from €6bn to €8bn, including all related infrastructures. That’s the ballpark figure for a single LNG train or production line; more trains would presumably be added should new gas discoveries be made offshore Cyprus.As it stands, Cyprus’ proven natural gas reserves average out to around 5 trillion cubic feet (tcf); it’s understood that at least 5.5 tcf are required for an LNG train with a capacity of 5 million tonnes per annum.Lakkotrypis could not be reached for comment yesterday. But industry sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, have confirmed to the Mail that the foreign consultants did recommend that the LNG terminal should be privately owned.The consulting firm was addressing the issue from a purely investment angle, the sources said. But the government – which at the end of the day will make the decision – must look at the big picture.“If the state should relinquish control of the LNG project, it would still make money off the sales of LNG as part of production-sharing agreements. But other factors come into play: there’s a case to be made for local job creation, spawning new industries around gas and so on – things that can be ensured so long as the state participates in the venture. In short, for Cyprus this is a strategic project, not just an investment decision.”In their recommendation, Gas Strategies observed that the Cypriot state cannot borrow billions, or even hundreds of millions, for a gas project.And as the Mail’s sources add, Cyprus’ international lenders would be averse to the island borrowing these amounts which would cause the national debt to soar further.Still, there could be a way: typically for such projects the equity raised (for example through a shares issue) needs to be only 30 to 40 per cent of the total cost. Assuming the LNG terminal costs €6bn, Cyprus would need to raise €1.8bn in equity, with the rest of the funds coming from loans.Where might the €1.8bn come from? Given the island is bankrupt and cannot raise that kind of cash, it could turn to strategic investors. It has been reported, for instance, that Chinese corporations have expressed an interest in investing in the project in exchange for LNG.At any rate, the government needs to make up its mind as fast as possible. Industry sources now place the earliest date for possible exports of LNG at 2021. Officials had initially spoken of 2018 or 2019.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
