AFBF Praises Support for Cash Accounting

first_img SHARE AFBF Praises Support for Cash Accounting Previous articleSunday OutlookNext articleMaster Farmers Personify Community and Industry Involvement Andy Eubank The American Farm Bureau Federation hailed the strong bi-partisan effort by members of Congress as they urged Senate and House leadership to preserve the cash accounting system farmers and ranchers rely on. In letters to both House and Senate leadership, members from all 50 states called the cash accounting system fundamental to the success of small businesses across rural America. The letters were signed by 46 senators and 233 representatives.  Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman on Friday said “we are pleased to see members of Congress reach across party lines and stand together for farmers and ranchers who are working to build their businesses and communities.” Cash accounting gives farmers and ranchers an important tool to expand their businesses and boost local economies, according to AFBF. A recent proposal by the Senate Finance Committee would require all businesses with annual receipts totaling $10 million to switch to the accrual method.Under an accrual accounting system, small businesses would be taxed on non-existent income, thereby reducing their cash flow for operating costs and limiting opportunities for expansion. The added financial burden would require many to take out loans to cover the liquidity problems they would face.Source: NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News AFBF Praises Support for Cash Accounting By Andy Eubank – Sep 15, 2014 SHARE Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

The TRUST Act makes clear when local law enforcement may respond to immigration detainer requests by federal authorities. It prohibits detention of undocumented immigrants for deportation unless a serious offense was committed. This limits the reach of a controversial federal program called Secure Communities, which currently allows the Department of Homeland Security to screen and transfer detained individuals to federal custody if they are undocumented.“I’m thrilled to see California leading the effort to fix our broken immigration system. The TRUST Act removes the threat of deportation from California residents who simply want to be our fellow citizens, and focuses solely on people with violent records. As a result, more resources will be dedicated to remove those who pose a real threat, trust will be restored in local law enforcement, and more families will remain united as we continue fighting for a long-term federal solution to fix our broken immigration system.” Top of the News Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website last_img read more

Kristin Stoklosa receives Ishimoto Award

first_imgKristin Stoklosa, e-resources manager and e-resources coordinator for the sciences, has been named this year’s recipient of the 2010 Carol Ishimoto Award for Distinguished Service in the Harvard College Library.Created through a 1991 endowment established by former Associate Librarian of Harvard College for Cataloging and Processing Carol Ishimoto, the award annually recognizes a member or group of the professional staff who has advanced the mission of the Library through exceptional contributions and leadership, and includes a cash award and citation for creative professional achievement of the highest order. “Kristin’s dedication has had a positive impact not just on Harvard College Library users, but on patrons throughout Harvard’s libraries,” Cline said. “The availability of digital resources has profoundly transformed the way our users approach the library, and Kristin has played a key role in ensuring the libraries acquire and deliver the resources patrons want. Her efforts in ensuring patrons can access the material they need for their studies and research is deserving of this award.” Stoklosa was nominated for the award in recognition of her efforts to anticipate and respond to the complex and rapidly-changing needs of scholars and faculty who rely on the library’s ability to deliver timely, accessible and reliable digital resources.To deliver a wide range of e-resources as quickly and efficiently as possible, Stoklosa has taken on a variety of roles in her work, Alison Scott, Widener senior collection development librarian and Charles Warren Bibliographer for American History, wrote in a nomination she submitted on behalf of herself and Associate Librarian for Collection Development Dan Hazen. Stoklosa acts as a combination of negotiator, analyst, ambassador, project manager, wrangler, and even rhetorician while assisting bibliographers and libraries that are variously part of HCL, FAS and HUL to assess, purchase, license, and subscribe to e-resources ranging from massive multi-disciplinary journal packages to highly-specific primary data sources.As an example of Stoklosa’s exemplary work, Scott pointed to her management of all subscription data during the project to migrate more than 1,000 printed journals at Widener Library into digital formats. Other projects include gathering and analyzing data for e-journal package negotiations and acquisitions, and an extensive review of tools for the evaluation of journal significance completed in support of the arduous work of pricing evaluation. Stoklosa also played a lead role in the development of a software tool/database for the efficient management of all phases of HCL acquisition of new digital resources, and continues to work on developing efficient workflows for the purchase of one-off e-books.“These activities would not be easy tasks to accomplish even in the best of times,” Scott said. “In these days of straitened budgets and ever-increasing costs, Kristin’s ability to work with librarians, technical experts, and vendors to keep our electronic acquisitions programs on track, on schedule and within budget is nothing short of marvelous.”Nancy Cline, Roy E. Larsen Librarian of Harvard College, presented the award to Stoklosa on Dec. 7.last_img read more

Tony Award winner Sutton Foster visits Saint Mary’s College

first_imgPhoto Courtesy of Hannah Toepp Renowned performer Sutton Foster answers questions Monday evening during an appearance at Saint Mary’s College.“We want to bring in well known Broadway powerhouses in order to motivate and inspire students in our musical theater minor” Mark Albin, the administrative assistant for communications, dance and theater department, said.Some of the other visitors have been women like Glenn Close, Audra McDonald and Sigourney Weaver, senior theater major Stephanie Johnson explained.Along with her question-and-answer session, Foster hosted a masterclass for students in which she discussed musical theater and helped students workshop their pieces.Albin explained that there were about 40 students — from Saint Mary’s, Notre Dame and local high schools — present in the masterclass.Johnson, who attended the masterclass and was able to sing for Foster, talked about the impact Foster’s visit had on her.“Theater has always been a part of my life,” Johnson said. “I think it’s valuable as a young artist to learn about the personal struggle of other artists. And it’s very inspiring to see someone who works against the stereotypes for female roles and allows women to be quirky or even gross without it being seen as a fault.”Foster’s presentation was an entertaining interview style. Foster said her own inspiration came from comic powerhouses like Lucille Ball and Carol Burnett.“In so many musicals, women are the victims. Their songs emphasize the sort of woe is me, I have nothing attitude. I just find that boring,” Foster said. “I want to see strength and action in female characters. I want characters who are ready to take their heartbreak and actively fight against it.”Foster also discussed the impact an actor can have on a role, and how a role can change the actor or actress.“There are a lot of cases where I end up changing the key a song is sung in. Or they end up changing a word because I can sing something else better,” she said. “I think a lot of people are afraid they won’t live up to someone else who played the role, but everyone brings something new to a role, and we’re just constantly working and figuring things out.”Foster ended the night with some advice for students who are about to graduate and move into the real world.“Be gentle and patient with yourselves. Your 20s are a decade of firsts, first house, first full time job, first love, first plant,” she said.She also had some advice on jobs and trying new things.“Don’t let rejection defeat you — let it fuel you,” Foster said. “Don’t think too much about what you’re going to do, just leap into your life. And then figure out.“ … Say yes to every opportunity that comes your way, except for porn.”Tags: Broadway, Margaret Hill Endowment, masterclass, Sutton Foster Saint Mary’s College community members, from professors to therapy dogs, filled O’Laughlin Auditorium Monday evening to see two-time Tony Award winning actress, singer and dancer Sutton Foster speak.Foster’s visit is the latest in a series of guest artists visits made possible by the Margaret Hill Endowment.last_img read more

Dominic Theim demolishes Alexander Zverev to make final

first_imgMELBOURNE: Dominic Thiem won the new-generation battle with Alexander Zverev 3-6, 6-4, 7-6(3), 7-6(4) to reach his first Australian Open final on Friday and set up the ultimate test against Melbourne Park maestro Novak Djokovic.In an enthralling semi-final featuring a rain interruption, a lighting failure and a plenty of drama besides, the fifth seeded Austrian shrugged off a sluggish start and was braver on the big points under the roof at Rod Laver Arena.He thrashed two blazing forehand winners to raise three match points in the decisive tiebreak, then sealed it with a cross-court volley to book his third Grand Slam final after losing the last two French Open deciders to Rafa Nadal.“Both of us could have won this today,” Thiem, who dumped Nadal from the quarter-finals, said on court.“Maybe (I have) a little bit of experience, little bit of something else. He’s just 22, maybe not long before he makes it to his first Grand Slam final.“It was an unreal match, again two tiebreaks, so tough and so close. It was almost impossible to break him.”With the men’s Grand Slams dominated for years by the ‘Big Three’ of Djokovic, Nadal and Roger Federer, Thiem will bid to become the first man born in the 1990s to win a major title.

Hayes provides Orange with all-around play, leadership

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments All it took was a video. One in which Sarah Hayes’ all-around volleyball abilities were so apparent — so evident — that the Syracuse volleyball coaches immediately knew they were interested. And they hadn’t even seen her in person. ‘You could just tell that she had a really good court awareness and was an all-around player,’ Orange assistant coach Carol LaMarche said. ‘I saw the quickness. I gave the video to Jing (Pu), and he saw the same things I did.’ But they both saw the 5-foot-9 Hayes playing defense for the Orange. A switch in positions was in order. Hayes had always been an outside hitter in high school, a level at which her height didn’t inhibit her ability to play offense. But to play in the Big East, her height made the change to defense somewhat inevitable. Four years later, adjustments long out of the way, the senior captain has become a reliable leader for the Orange both on and off the court. Hayes knew she wouldn’t be recruited to play offense at the Division I level. She was all but guaranteed a spot on defense. But the switch was no problem for Hayes. Instead the outside hitter turned defensive specialist has learned to love her position because, well, she doesn’t have much of a choice.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘I love offense,’ Hayes said. ‘But I mean, (defense) is my position on this team, that’s my role. You sort of just have to love it.’ The hard hits to the floor Hayes takes every time she dives to make a dig never show up in the box score. Neither does her job of having to defend against the smashing hits opposing hitters — who can be five inches taller than her — sent in her direction. Defense is a thankless job, so for Hayes, it’s a good thing she’s able to love it. But like her all-around volleyball abilities, her leadership abilities are just as strong and just as important. That’s why her teammates named her captain at the start of the year. Last season, her ability to become a vocal on-court leader of the Orange started to show itself, LaMarche said. ‘I guess that has to do with some of her confidence and her feeling that this is her team,’ LaMarche said. ‘It’s great because she’ll be the one to speak up in practice or in games and kind of get people going if it’s getting kind of sluggish.’ But there’s nothing sluggish about Hayes’ play on the court. Her quickness gives SU’s coaches the opportunity to have two players capable of playing libero — Hayes and junior Ashley Williams. It’s not a luxury every coach has, but Hayes’ quick reactions to opposing offenses allow Pu and LaMarche to have that choice. Those quick reactions make it much more difficult for other teams to find the holes in Syracuse’s defense. If they hit in Hayes’s direction, there’s a good chance the Orange will be able to return it back over the net. As Syracuse heads into the final stretch of its season, the final push to the playoffs, Hayes will be depended on to continue giving the Orange offensive opportunities. With SU on the bubble for a Big East tournament berth, this is the time that Hayes’ quick reactions are needed most. Syracuse will need every opportunity it can get if it wants to find itself with a spot in the conference playoffs, and it starts with the leader of its counterattack. ‘If something’s coming at her face, she can put her hands up and block it and actually have it be a ball that can be set,’ LaMarche said. ‘She has a quick reaction time.’ [email protected]center_img Published on November 1, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] | @chris_isemanlast_img read more
