Wisconsin’s Nigel Hayes Refuses To Talk About Kentucky, Cites What Happened To West Virginia’s Daxter Miles

first_imgNigel Hayes won't discuss Kentucky during press conference.Nigel Hayes is a smart young man. Following Wisconsin’s Elite Eight victory against Arizona, the Badgers’ sophomore forward was asked about Kentucky, his team’s potential opponent in the Final Four. Hayes, who scored eight points in the West Region final, refused to say anything about the undefeated Wildcats. He cited what happened to West Virginia and victory-guaranteeing Daxter Miles as the reason for his decision to keep quiet. Does Nigel Hayes want Kentucky? “I’m not going to go down that road. A young man tried that a couple days ago, and it didn’t work too well.”— Adam Kilgore (@AdamKilgoreWP) March 29, 2015Hayes knows not to poke the bear. The bear is currently in a dogfight against Notre Dame, though.

Relief for startups CBDT lays out plan for pending angel tax assessment

first_imgNew Delhi: Giving a relief to startups, the government has laid out a procedure to address pending angel tax assessments under which action would be taken only after approval of a supervisory officer. The Central Board of Direct Taxes (CBDT), in a circular, said that no verification will be done by an assessing officer if a startup has been recognised by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT) and the case is selected under limited scrutiny.

If a startup is not recognised by the DPIIT, then too the inquiry would be carried out after the approval of a supervisory officer. The circular followed the announcement made by Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman in Budget. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostShe proposed a host of incentives, including a special arrangement for resolution of pending assessments of income tax cases, with a view to encouraging startups. “To resolve the so-called ‘angel tax’ issue, the startups and their investors who file requisite declarations and provide information in their returns will not be subjected to any kind of scrutiny in respect of valuations of share premiums,” she had said. The issue of establishing the identity of the investor and source of his/her funds will be resolved by putting in place a mechanism of e-verification. Commenting on the issue, Amit Maheshwari, Partner, Ashok Maheshwary & Associates LLP said that CBDT has come out with a framework to tackle pending tax assessments. This clarification will help startups which are facing questioning in their assessments and will also give a clear direction to assessing officers on what to do in such cases, he said. “Contention of startups having DPIIT recognition will be accepted on section 56(2)(viib) of Income tax act and therefore, there would not be any tax adjustment additions on this account,” he said. He added that startups which do not have DPIIT recognition will still have to substantiate the valuations of the assessing office, if they question them. “However, as a safeguard this enquiry/verification will be after obtaining prior approval from the supervisory officer,” he added. Nangia Advisors (Andersen Global) Managing Partner Rakesh Nangia said, “Directions of the CBDT that the tax officer will have to summarily accept the contentions of the startup on valuation of its shares shall provide the relief intended to be provided to the startups.” While the recognised startups stand relieved, the ones that are yet to receive a nod from the DPIIT may still have to face the inquiry from tax officers and the procedure to be followed by the tax officers in such cases would be crucial to note, Nangia added. An angel investor puts funds in a startup when it is setting up its business. Normally, about 300-400 startups receive angel funding in a year. Their investment in a unit ranges between Rs 15 lakh and Rs 4 crore. After claims being made by several startups that they were receiving tax notices under section 56(2)(viib) of the Income Tax Act, 1961 to pay taxes on angel funds received by them, the DPIIT in consultations with CBDT resolved the issue. Section 56(2)(viib) of the I-T Act provides that the amount raised by a startup in excess of its fair market value would be deemed as income from other sources and would be taxed at 30 per cent. Touted as an anti-abuse measure, this section was introduced in 2012. It is dubbed as angel tax due to its impact on investments made by angel investors in startup ventures. More than 540 startups have received an exemption from angel tax so far.last_img read more

Buckeyes seeking lucky No 7

Six years ago, the Ohio State Buckeyes were at the end of arguably their most disappointing season under coach Jim Tressel. Heading into the last week of the regular season, the Buckeyes were 6-4 and looking ahead to what would be the first non-January bowl game of the Tressel era. Then one game changed the outlook of not only the entire season, but also the entire OSU football program. On Nov. 20, 2004, the Buckeyes stunned the No. 7 Michigan Wolverines in Ohio Stadium behind 391 yards of total offense from quarterback Troy Smith. In one game, the Buckeyes went from a disappointing team that lacked an identity to a team with a quarterback of the future who provided them with just that. It was also the start of a streak of domination in the rivalry for the Buckeyes, who have won six straight contests against the Wolverines, outscoring them 181-101 in that stretch. Michigan coach Rich Rodriguez is hopeful that a win Saturday against the Buckeyes will provide a similar reversal of fortunes for the Wolverines. “It’d mean an awful lot, certainly for our fans and for our university, but more importantly for our seniors and our players because they haven’t had the chance to win that,” Rodriguez said. “We’ve got to perform better and get some wins to make us feel better and make our fans feel better.” In his first two seasons as Michigan’s coach, Rodriguez’s teams have lost 42-7 and 21-10 to the Buckeyes. This year’s Wolverine team is the most formidable — at least offensively — that Rodriguez will bring into “The Game.” Unlike Rodriguez’s first two seasons, Michigan’s offensive personnel now fit its spread scheme. The Wolverines have found success behind dual-threat quarterback Denard Robinson, an early-season Heisman candidate who fell out of contention because of injuries and a three-game losing streak in the middle of the season. Robinson has rushed for 1,538 yards and 14 touchdowns and has thrown for 2,229 yards, 16 touchdowns and 10 interceptions, leading the Wolverines to a 7-4 record that will land them in their first bowl game under Rodriguez. Tressel said Robinson’s ability to both run and throw the ball makes him difficult to prepare for. “It’s impossible to simulate him because there’s no one like him,” Tressel said. “It’s a tremendous challenge because it gives you all of the problems that a Wildcat offense gives you with a great running back back there. But along with it, it has all of the passing problems.” Robinson has played a critical role in Michigan’s offense, which is ranked 10th in the nation in rushing, with 257.4 yards per game, and 15th in the nation in points scored, with 36.8 points per game. Michigan’s defense has failed to find the same success that its offense has, as it is ranked 99th in the country in scoring, giving up 33.5 points per game. Despite the statistics, Robinson said he hasn’t lost confidence in his team’s defense. “I think our defense is one of the best defenses in the nation,” Robinson said. “I don’t care what nobody say. We play against them every day, and they help us get better.” Tressel agreed that the statistics don’t necessarily tell the tale of the Michigan defense. “They’ve given up too many big plays, but the thing I love about them is I see them flying around and I see a lot of young guys who aren’t young anymore,” Tressel said. The longest streak in the rivalry thus far came from 1901-1909, when the Wolverines got the better of the Buckeyes for nine straight years. A win on Saturday would move OSU two games away from matching that streak. “There’s been pressure every year. It’s something that comes with it,” OSU wide receiver Dane Sanzenbacher said. “Nobody wants to be the team that breaks the streak.” With a share of the Big Ten title and a potential sixth straight trip to a BCS bowl game still within grasp, the Buckeyes have more than just pride to play for. OSU defensive end Cameron Heyward said the Buckeyes understand the high stakes. “A lot. A share of the Big Ten title and our biggest rival,” Heyward said. “Michigan is always going to play their best against us. We wouldn’t have it any other way to go out against a quality opponent. It’ll be a rough one, but we’re ready for it.” Regardless of bowl game implications, the Buckeyes remain focused on extending their winning streak over the Wolverines to a lucky No. 7. “The Ohio State-Michigan game is the focus,” Tressel said. “There are tons of by-products for everybody, but the single most one everyone knows that’s ever coached or played at Ohio State is that you’re defined by your Ohio State-Michigan games.” read more

Blessing in disguise produces Will Lauricellas passion success

Before his fateful back injury, if you had asked New Jersey native and high school quarterback Will Lauricella where he’d be in two years, he wouldn’t have told you he’d be a javelin thrower on the track and field team at Ohio State. When faced with a stress fracture in his lower vertebrae, Lauricella made a life-changing decision. “I decided for my safety not to do football anymore and all my friends were doing track and field so I decided to go out for the team with them,” Lauricella said. “I fell in love with it.” Lauricella made the choice and hasn’t looked back. The freshman placed first at four consecutive meets before finally meeting his match at the Drake Relays in Des Moines, Iowa, on April 29. Lauricella decided to look at the positive side of the losing performance. “The Drake Relays was the biggest learning experience of my life for my javelin career,” he said. “I learned that, to be successful in the javelin in a college career, you just really have to be consistent and throw your marks.” Consistency has defined Lauricella’s performance this season. In all five outings, he’s thrown more than 60 meters. Sophomore teammate Aaron Roberts is impressed with what’s he’s seen from Lauricella. “Obviously, he’s off to a great start to his career,” Roberts said. “He won his first three or four meets and that’s really awesome. … For a freshman to come in and really help us out like that is a huge benefit for our team, and he’s set himself up for a great four years here.” When Lauricella arrived, there was much discussion that he may be redshirted. However, Lauricella’s throws impressed his coach so much that they decided to start him as a true freshman. “We were going to redshirt him, but he was looking so good in practice we decided, ‘Let’s just throw him in,’” coach Robert Gary said. Even Lauricella wasn’t entirely sure he was ready to face top collegiate competition. “We were talking about redshirting at first,” Lauricella said. “I only have a couple years under my belt of this, but the fact that I have such a good chance to even win Big Tens or score high is just great so far. I never thought I’d be at this point.” Gary was confident Lauricella was ready to perform. “We just thought, ‘Let’s not waste it; let’s let him go,’” Gary said. Going into the Big Ten Outdoor Championships, Lauricella is ranked fourth among Big Ten javelin throwers. But his sights are set on taking first place this weekend. “I’m hoping for one to three, but I really think if I throw my best and the competition throws the way they’ve been throwing, I should be shooting for one or two,” Lauricella said. But no matter where he places, Lauricella said he’s happy with his first season at OSU. “I would say being injury-free and winning my first couple meets in college was the most rewarding part,” he said. “I never would have thought that I could come in and be so successful.” In his first season, Lauricella planted firm roots within the track and field program. He’s developed a unique bond with his coaches, and Gary likes to give his thrower a hard time. “I call him ‘Jersey Shore’ guy,” Gary said. “You know, always tan, hair always looks good.” When Lauricella’s father posted his son’s nickname as “Will the thrill,” Gary had to poke fun. “Everyone keeps giving me a lot of stuff for this nickname,” Lauricella said. “To be honest, it’s really not my nickname. My dad put it up there and coach Gary found it, and they’ve been calling me it since. … They like to make fun of me for it, but I’m starting to embrace it.” In his time at OSU, Lauricella’s performance has surprised even himself. Always a hard worker, Lauricella said he knows he has had help along the way. “I really have to thank my high school coach and the professional help I got during high school also,” he said, “but none of this would have been possible without coach (Kevin) Mannon and everything that he’s taught me since I got to Ohio State.” Lauricella is still learning, and feels his best is still to come. Although he’s a long way from New Jersey, Lauricella says he feels at home at OSU. “It’s absolutely a whole different world,” he said. “I’m used to only seeing populated areas. It’s very nice. It’s very laid-back. It’s much more lax. Everyone’s a lot nicer out here … no complaints about it. I’m very happy where I’m at.” read more

City Of Soldotna Narrows Down Annexation Zones

first_imgThe Soldotna City Council at their meeting on Wednesday, March 28, agreed to postpone any further discussion on annexation until their council meeting on May 9. Olson: “Last week they finally pulled the trigger on it and said they are going to annex 7 of the 9 areas. The city has a constitutional right to pursue annexation, but the borough residents also have some rights here. We elected you folks, you represent us, the folks that sit on the city council in Soldotna we don’t get to vote for them. Our only request was that they would choose the local option that would allow the people in the affected areas to vote. Instead, they decided to go with the legislative review process, that means there won’t be any voting by the folks in the affected areas.”  City Manager Stephanie Queen spoke at the work session, prior to the meeting, stating that this resolution, if approved, would begin the official annexation process. The postponement allows the council to further address the seven areas of annexation, including removing, or editing the boundaries of some of the areas. The City Council stated the resolution introduced proposes to use the legislative review process when they submit their petition for annexation to the Local Boundary Commission. That means that the overall decision on annexation will not be going to the voters. Brian Olson, the President of Borough Residents Against Annexation testified at the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly on Tuesday, April 3, to try and garner support from the assembly.

MercedesBenz Concept EQV previews an attractive electric van

first_img • Mercedes-Benz EQV concept electrifies the humble van We’ll start with the most important part, the powertrain. The EQV is front-wheel drive, containing all its motive-force bits in the front end. Its electric motor puts out 201 horsepower, and it’s combined into a single unit with the transmission, cooling system and power electronics. Juice comes from a 100-kWh lithium-ion battery, which gives the EQV a range of about 249 miles and a top speed of 99 miles per hour. With fast charging, it can add about 62 miles of range in 15 minutes or so.Enlarge ImageThe best electric vehicles don’t look all that different from today’s cars, and the EQV fits that bill to a T. Andrew Hoyle/CNET From an aesthetics standpoint, the EQV looks very close to the Mercedes V-Class that debuted at the end of January. There are a few touches to let you know it’s electric, like a sleeker grille and headlight combination, as well as some unique alloy wheels with blue accents, but it’s largely the same on the outside as the V-Class. The EQV’s interior is just a bit fancier, with blue and rose-gold elements all over the place. The Nappa leather appointments are obviously more suited to the EQV as a passenger vehicle, but odds are that there will be a stripped-down commercial version that can take a little more abuse, too.While the production EQV will likely arrive within the next year or so, Mercedes-Benz has bigger plans beyond that. The automaker hopes to electrify its entire portfolio — that is to say, it will offer at least one electrified variant of all its models — by 2022. The future is electric, but it seems Mercedes-Benz doesn’t want to wait until the absolute last minute to hop on the bandwagon. 2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Mar 8 • VW is still ‘100 percent’ investigating a pickup truck for the US 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Mar 7 • New Peugeot 208 debuts i-Cockpit with 3D HUD Combo dashboard 0 Mercedes-Benz on Tuesday unveiled the Concept EQV at the Geneva Motor Show.

Baluchari silk makes comeback in Bengal thanks to state project

first_imgKolkata: The sale of Baluchari silk has seen a sharp spike in Bengal, after the state government launched the ‘Baluchari’ project a few years ago, aiming to revive the textile which harks back to the colonial times.”In collaboration with the West Bengal State Handloom Weavers’ Cooperation Society (Tantuja), the Directorate of Textiles had launched the Baluchari project, which has been a major success. The sale of this particular kind of silk has increased on a major scale as we roped in weavers from Bishnupur, who blended some old and new designs, keeping in mind the current trend and demands of the consumers,” said Director of Textiles Debasis Ghosh on Wednesday. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata BoseBaluchari, a quintessential textile of Bengal, which found a home in Bishnupur of Bankura district after its place of origin Baluchar in Murshidabad, had succumbed to the vagaries of nature. Even in Bishnupur, the design, looms, weaving technique and the thread used underwent drastic change with time, leaving the originality of the textile in shambles. In such a scenario, the Baluchari project has aided its grand revival, with the hike in sales figures. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataGhosh further said: “After the launch of the project, the West Bengal State Handloom Weavers’ Cooperation Society eventually undertook its marketing duties and launched an exclusive showroom in Park Street which specialises in Baluchari silk, among others. The annual turn- over of the showroom has reached crores.” Tantuja procures handloom fabrics from cooperative societies and artisans through 12 procurement centres and two training-cum-production centres. It has 83 sales outlets all over India. Speaking about the initiative taken by the government to help the farmers in cultivation of silk, the extension officer of the directorate of textiles Partho Pratim said: “There are 59 government sericulture farms in Bengal which cultivate superior-quality seeds. These seeds are then given to the farmers at a subsidised rate, who then produce the raw silk. When the raw silk is sold in the market, the farmers earn good revenue. The weavers who buy the raw silk spin it into sarees, shawls and other garments.”last_img read more

Police should take suo motu action against BJP leaders for encounter comment

first_imgKolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Wednesday the police should take suo motu cognizance against those BJP leaders who advocated the “Uttar Pradesh model” of encounters in the state to wipe out criminals. Banerjee also condemned the lynching incidents across India, saying the country belonged to each and every citizen irrespective of his or her caste, creed and religion. “Some BJP leaders are threatening to conduct encounters in West Bengal. I don’t know why the police did not file a suo motu case against them and take action. The police should take suo-motu cognizance,” she said while speaking on the floor of the assembly.

Banerjee accused the BJP of promoting communal divide in the country. “The country is for all — for Muslims, Hindus, Chirstians, Jains, Sikhs.

But what about the law and order issue in Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand or Haryana? Did they send any advisory to these states? The answer is no.

Bill seeks to increase statute of limitations for armed robbery

first_img07Nov Bill seeks to increase statute of limitations for armed robbery A bill introduced by state Rep. Diana Farrington calls for increasing the statute of limitations from six to 10 years for someone to be charged for armed robbery.“Only anybody who has been the victim of an armed robbery knows the incredible threat they face, not knowing if they’ll just lose their wallet or their life as well,” said Farrington, of Utica. “This bill adds armed robbery to the list of crimes such as kidnapping, extortion, attempted murder, manslaughter and home invasion, which allows victims up to 10 years to file charges.”Farrington testified today before the House Law and Justice Committee, with Derek Miller of the Macomb County Prosecutors’ Office and Clinton Township Police Department Capt. Richard Maierle also speaking in support of her legislation.“Armed robbery is a serious offense. It places a victim in more danger than other non-violent crimes, and yet, current law imposes the same limitations when filing a case,” Farrington said. “The statute of limitations should reflect the real threat of injury or death associated with this offense. We need to give our law enforcement agencies more tools to bring these criminals to justice.”House Bill 5010 remains under consideration of the House committee.

users and not just iPhone owners Write to Victor Luckerson at victor_luckerson@timeinccomAfter spending months warning of a “rigged election” and predicting darkly that Democrats would vote “many many times” Donald Trump’s only Election Day lawsuit alleging voter improprieties so far ended with a whimper The Trump campaign filed a suit Tuesday morning against Joe P Gloria the registrar of Clark County Nevada alleging that he allowed certain polls in mostly Hispanic areas to remain open after closing time on Friday the last day of early voting in the state Trump called it evidence of a “rigged system” A lawyer for the Trump campaign asked that Gloria be compelled by court order to retain information on the individual poll workers assigned to the polling stations in question and to separate out any early ballots that were cast Friday evening Clark County District Court Judge Gloria Sturman refused on privacy grounds She explained that Gloria is already statutorily obligated to preserve information about the operation of the polling places in question and that any act of the court would create a risk that individual poll workers and voters would be identified publicly and harassed Brian Hardy a lawyer representing the Trump campaign dismissed the notion “There would be no harassment” he said Judge Sturman who has since become a trending item on Twitter under the hashtag #NevadaJudge was clearly incredulous “How can you tell me that Have you watched Twitter Have you watched any cable news show” she asked “Why would I order them to make available to you people who work at polls when it’s not already a public requirement to do so so those people can be harassed for performing their civic duties” The Trump campaign wants to make names of Nevada poll workers public Judge’s response: pictwittercom/tes99IMbbH Deadspin (@Deadspin) November 8 2016 “I am not going to expose people doing their civic duty to help their fellow citizens vote … to public attention ridicule and harassment” she said adding that taking any move to sequester ballots so that the Trump campaign could link voters with votes cast “seems to go against the very principle that a vote is secret” In the lawsuit the Trump campaign alleged that a handful of polling places in Clark County were allowed to stay open after closing time and that they processed voters’ ballots that had not been in line at the time that the polls closed It’s unclear if either is illegal in the state during the early voting period Under Nevada state law the county clerk can keep polls open for as long as necessary to process all voters who were in line before polls closed The clerk also has full authority to determine when temporary polling places are open during the early voting period only “Voting at a temporary branch polling place may be conducted on any one or more days and during any hours within the period for early voting by personal appearance as determined by the county clerk” according to Nevada state law 2933572 That appears to be different than the Nevada state law that applies on Election Day itself Under that law reflecting the standard in all states people can vote so long as they were in line at the time that the poll was scheduled to close A Nevada state elections official did not immediate return calls requesting clarification During the hearing Tuesday Judge Sturman attempted to disambiguate the law before the court “If you were in line when the polls close you get the chance to cast your ballot but there has to be an end of the line … but you need to be in line by a certain time” she asked “If a line still still exists you can cast a vote” a lawyer representing the county replied “It’s different from Election Day and always has been” Neither Gloria nor any other official in Clark County has filed a formal complaint with the Nevada Secretary of State Barbara Cegavske a Republican who was elected in 2014 who is responsible for pursuing an investigation if she identifies wrong doing Officials with the Republican National Committee seemed to intimate Tuesday that Gloria the county clerk was masterminding widespread illegal activity although they produced no evidence “Even more concerning is that Clark County employees seem to be facilitating illegal activity at the direction of Joe Gloria whose primary function is to ensure the integrity of elections
