It’s hard for me to see the federal deduction of state and local taxes as anything other than high-tax states being subsidized by states with lower taxes. My brother in Idaho is involuntarily helping to pay New York’s high taxes when my federal tax liability is disproportionately reduced. How is that fair? Hopefully, we in New York enjoy greater benefits that come with higher taxes, but we are the ones who collectively made that choice. I find it incredible that Gov. Cuomo claims that putting a cap on how much my brother is forced to subsidize New York and other high-tax states is somehow unconstitutional. Perhaps Idaho should sue for reimbursement of past subsidies.Andrew CrapoGlenvilleMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusEDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidation Categories: Letters to the Editor, Opinion
A gunman suspected of shooting nine people dead at two shisha bars in a southwestern German city has been found dead at his home, police said on Thursday.Another body was discovered at the home of the man in Hanau, a city east of the financial hub of Frankfurt where the shootings happened.”There are no indications that other suspects were involved,” police said in a statement. “One of the two dead people found is highly likely the perpetrator. The investigations into the identity of the victims and the perpetrator are ongoing.” Police raised the death toll to nine after one person succumbed to injuries. Their information suggested the gunman had committed suicide at his home after fleeing in a dark car, but the motive for the attacks is unclear.Can-Luca Frisenna, whose father and brother run one of the two bars attacked by the gunman, said he rushed to the scene after he received news of the shooting.”I heard my father was affected and my little brother, they run the kiosk, I don’t have much to do with it,” said Frisenna. “But then I saw them both – they were horrified and they were crying and everything. So everyone was shocked.”Mass-selling Bild newspaper said the man was a German citizen and that ammunition and gun magazines were found in his car. He had a firearms hunting licence, it added.Topics :
Ireland’s sovereign wealth fund has invested in a life sciences company in a commitment that will see the creation of a research centre and 150 local jobs.The Ireland Strategic Investment Fund’s (ISIF) investment in Genomics Medicine Ireland (GMI) alongside ARCH Venture Partners, Polaris Partners and GV – worth a total of €40m – was hailed as an “exciting endeavour” by Enda Kenny, Ireland’s Taoiseach, or prime minister.“When the government established the ISIF,” Kenny added, “we wanted to encourage new investment and job creation across Ireland in ground-breaking new sectors such as next-generation healthcare solutions.”The ISIF’s head of innovation, Paul Kenny, said the fund looked forward to developing the year-old company into one of international significance and boosting Ireland’s place in developing healthcare solutions. “GMI has the potential to play a significant role, in collaboration with the Irish healthcare system, in the identification of transformative treatments for a range of diseases that have eluded effective treatment to date,” he said.The research and development centre funded by the ISIF-backed investment will help GMI examine the human genome and develop cures for rare diseases, the company said.The stake in GMI is not the ISIF’s first exposure to the healthcare sector.It has also invested in Centric Health, a provider of diagnostic imaging, and 3D4 Medical, which develops medical and fitness apps.The €8bn sovereign fund has a double bottom line, aiming for both financial returns and stimulating Ireland’s economic growth.
Swedish national pension fund AP6 — which invests solely in private equity — reported a 12.3% overall return in 2017, almost twice the investment profit it had made the year before.The Gothenburg-based state pension buffer fund said the return on capital actually invested in private equity funds and unlisted companies reached a record high of 20.3% for 2017, up from 9.5% the year before.Karl Swartling, chief executive of the Sixth AP Fund, said: “The return for the year is a result of a deliberate effort to restructure the portfolio and a high investment rate over the past five years.”He said a good flow of attractive investment opportunities from existing and new partners had resulted in many new investments in 2017. “Our striving to be selective in terms of partners and holdings is an important reason for the year’s good results,” Swartling said.Smaller than Sweden’s other four buffer funds, AP6’s total capital grew to SEK 31.6bn (€3.16bn) by the end of 2017 from SEK 28.1bn a year before.AP6 is a closed fund, neither receiving new resources from the Swedish state nor disbursing money into the pension system, and holds assets both in the form of deployed capital and liquidity.The pension fund says the balance between the latter two can vary widely from year to year, being affected, for example, by large divestments.In 2017, the investment rate was still high and a large number of new fund commitments were completed, the fund said, with 10 new direct investments implemented.The fund reported that it finished the year with 36% of its assets in direct investments, 34% in funds and 30% in liquid instruments. This revealed a decrease in liquidity from the previous year, when these proportions had been 28%, 31% and 41% respectively.Over the last five years, AP6’s annual return on capital employed has been 11.6%, it said.AP3 scales back on hedge fundsSweden’s AP3 pension fund posted an 8.9% return for 2017 and said it had worked on cost-saving measures during the year — partly by cutting the proportion of hedge funds held in its portfolio.Releasing its annual report, AP3, which is based in Stockholm, said total fund capital increased to SEK345.2bn by the end of 2017 from SEK324bn a year before.Kerstin Hessius, the pension fund’s chief executive, said: “Over the year, we worked to contain costs by moving into smaller premises and by reducing the share of hedge funds in the portfolio.”AP3 had also intensified the cooperation among the AP funds in 2017, she said.The pension fund’s return before costs of 8.9% is broadly in line with the 9.1% and 9.2% returns before costs reported by AP2 and AP4 respectively earlier this month.AP1 has yet to report full-year figures.AP3 said it had outperformed its benchmark portfolio by 2.1 percentage points after costs in 2017.During the year, the pension fund paid SEK7.37m into the Swedish pension system, up from the SEK6.64m outflow of 2016.
ONE News 1 Nov 2012Proposed changes to the child support scheme will cost taxpayers $91 million to implement, opponents say. The Child Support Amendment Bill was reported back to Parliament from a select committee yesterday. It aims to introduce a new formula for calculating child support payments where parents have separated. The new formula takes into account shared care arrangements, the income of both parents and the decreasing expenditure for raising a child as it gets older. Revenue Minister Peter Dunne introduced the changes because the assumptions of the current scheme were outdated and were based on the idea that the paying parent was the sole income earner. The Green Party said the new formula was complex, unfair and not transparent. ”The costs of administering the new system, estimated by officials to be approximately $91million, are substantial, and we are not convinced that these costs can be justified for the introduction of a flawed formula that does not maximise child well-being.” Several submitters said the amendment should explicitly promote the well-being of children as a core function of the law.…”The money paid by the liable parents does not directly benefit the child in any way,” the Greens said in their minority report accompanying the bill. Labour was also critical of the bill saying it was a ”lost opportunity”. ”The overall effect of this bill is to apportion a greater share of the cost of child-rearing to women. Many women would be worse off as a result of this legislation,” said Labour.http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/new-child-support-scheme-flawed-opposition-5183887

Recently it was announced that Carl Edwards was retiring as an active driver in the NASCAR Race Series. The timing of his announcement took everybody by surprise, because last year Edwards was one race win short of the championship.Edward’s retirement was very unusual for pro sports because he is in the prime of his racing career. The reason given for his retirement was that he wanted to spend more time with his family. He also stated that he had other interests that he wanted to pursue.All of the above reasons seem to be legitimate, but you rarely find a pro athlete who retires when they are at or near the top of their career. One of the few who did this was Jim Brown, a pro football player. We will have to see if Edwards goes back to racing after this year or if he stays retired like Jim Brown did.

“I hope testing goes well,” said Ferrando, looking to right the ship on a season that has seen more than its share of mechanical issues. “It’s been one of those years when it seems like nothing goes right. We’ve been trying to find the right setup and cut down on the DNFs.” STAYTON, Ore. – Grey Ferrando made history last September as the first driver from Oregon to qualify for the Modified main event at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s. Grey Ferrando became the first Oregon driver to qualify for the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s Modified main event last September, finishing 16th in the Saturday night dance. (Photo by Tom Macht, www.photofinishphotos.com) A Cottage Grove Speedway and Willamette Speedway regular, he’s got one feature win so far this year. Now in just his fourth season in the division, he’ll return to the Midwest for midweek testing of a new Rage Chassis. He’ll pick the car up again on his way to Super Nationals. “It was cool to be the first Oregon driver to make it in,” said the Stayton driver, who ran fourth in his Friday qualifying feature and was joined in the main event field by fellow home state pilot and Saturday last-chance qualifier Collen Winebarger. “We have a lot of good drivers out here and I’m sure they’d have a good chance to make it if they went to Super Nationals.” He’ll return to Boone Speedway with the goal of making it back into the Big Dance and improving on his 16th place showing in 2018. In his first trip to Boone and America’s Racin’ Vacation, Ferrando improved steadily wheeling a new ride, ultimately winning Friday’s 13th heat. September success at Boone Speedway, of course, will more than make up for the tough luck closer to home. “Boone is a track that fits my driving style. I felt really fortunate to qualify last year. We had some luck and made it in our first time at Super Nationals and I was happy with that,” Ferrando said. “We’d be doing pretty good to make it back in this year.”
The 37-year-old was a free agent following his release by Everton at the end of the season and becomes Eddie Howe’s sixth summer signing. Frenchman Distin offers a wealth of experience having made more than 200 appearances for the Toffees as well as enjoying spells with Manchester City, Portsmouth and Newcastle. Boss Howe told Cherries Player: “I see Sylvain playing a similar role to the one Ian Harte played. “Off the pitch, he is someone the younger players can turn to in times when they need to speak to someone who has seen it and done it. “Ian was invaluable to us in that respect last season and the season before when he had experience in the Championship and no one else had. “Sylvain now takes on that role and on the pitch I still think he has a huge amount to offer. “He still has his athleticism and is technically very good. We are very pleased to have him.” Distin holds the record for the most appearances made by a foreign outfield player in the Premier League, with his current total standing at 457. Sylvain Distin has completed a move to Barclays Premier League new boys Bournemouth on a one-year deal. Press Association
By Sudipto GangulyMUMBAI, India (Reuters) – Sourav Ganguly will lead the Indian board like he led the national team, the former captain said, as he promised a fair and untainted administration after taking over as president of the world’s richest cricket board yesterday.One of India’s most successful captains, Ganguly took over the reins from a court-appointed panel which governed the game in the country for nearly three years.His transition from player to top administrator is seen as a natural progression for a former captain who helped India emerge a damaging match-fixing scandal in 2000.“Fortunately or unfortunately, there was a similar sort of a situation even when I became captain of India,” Ganguly told reporters after being elected unopposed as chief of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). “It is a similar sort of situation where things need to be brought back in place and reforms need to be done … It’s a complete new start.”Ganguly wore an India blazer from his playing days in his news conference after a BCCI general meeting and said he was happy to lead reforms but was not fond of the word “control”.“I find myself very fortunate to be in a position where I can make a change. It’s a challenge. I’ll do it the way I know, with no compromise on credibility, corruption-free and same-for-all in BCCI,” he said. “That’s the way I led India and that’s the way I’ll take this organisation forward.”Since early 2017, BCCI was run by administrators appointed by the Supreme Court after the board’s failure to implement administrative reforms.The changes were suggested following a spot-fixing scandal during the 2013 Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty20 competition. As a captain and as head of the Cricket Association of Bengal, Ganguly has been known for his hands-on approach.The 47-year-old, however, described Test captain Virat Kohli as “the most important man in Indian cricket” and promised all support to make India the best team in the world.“He’s the captain of India and he’s the most important man in Indian cricket. We will support him in every possible way he wants to make this team the best in the world,” Ganguly said. “It’s been a great team to be honest, the way they have played cricket in the last three-four years. They have been a fantastic side. Yes, they haven’t won a World Cup, but you don’t win a World Cup every time.”The board under Ganguly will take care of first-class players and strengthen domestic cricket, added Ganguly, who played 113 Tests and 311 one-day internationals and led India to 21 Test wins.The board under Ganguly will take care of first-class players and strengthen domestic cricket, added Ganguly, who played 113 Tests and 311 one-day internationals and led India to 21 Test wins. Jay Shah, son of India’s Home Minister Amit Shah, was also elected unopposed to the post of BCCI secretary.

WATCH US LIVE SUBSCRIBE TO US Associated Press Television News COMMENT FOLLOW US José Iglesias and Bryan Holaday had RBI doubles in the 11th inning for Baltimore, and Iglesias threw out the potential tying run at home plate as the Orioles salvaged a 4-3 win against the Toronto Blue Jays to break a five-game losing streak.Iglesias’ leadoff hit, to deep left-center field, scored Anthony Santander, who started the inning at second base. Holaday then doubled to right field to drive in Iglesias. Both hits came off Toronto reliever Anthony Bass (2-2).Lourdes Gurriel Jr. had an RBI single in the 11th to draw Toronto closer but was thrown out at the plate trying to score on a Rowdy Tellez hit. Right fielder Santander missed the cutoff man, but Iglesias ranged over from his shortstop position to deliver the relay from near the right field line.Iglesias and Santander each had two hits for Baltimore, and César Valdez (1-1) worked two innings to earn the win.Toronto’s Teoscar Hernández threw out Mason Williams at home plate in the 10th inning to complete a double play, but the Blue Jays couldn’t capitalize in their half of the frame.Gurriel had three hits for Toronto, which had its four-game winning streak snapped.Toronto scored twice in the fifth inning when Baltimore’s Hanser Alberto threw wildly on a grounder to take a 2-1 lead. Baltimore tied it in the sixth on an RBI double by Santander.Gurriel was thrown out by Alberto at home in the sixth while trying to score on a grounder. Gurriel had stolen third, somehow avoiding the tag of Rio Ruiz even though the throw beat him by several feet.Toronto starter Chase Anderson recorded eight strikeouts in five innings.Baltimore’s Keegan Akin struck out six batters over 4 1/3 innings in his first career start.PLAYOFF PUSHThe Blue Jays, looking to qualify for the expanded postseason, made three deals at the trading deadline, obtaining LHP Robbie Ray from Arizona, INF Jonathan Villar from Miami, and RHP Ross Stripling from the Los Angeles Dodgers.Ray is 1-4 this season with a 7.84 ERA, and has a career record of 48-50 with a 4.25 ERA. He is expected to shore up a rotation which has hasn’t had a starter go into the seventh inning since Aug. 22, 2019, a streak span that reached 65 games Monday. Toronto also receives cash in exchange for LHP Travis Bergen.Villar, a switch-hitter, is batting .272 this season with two homers. He hit a career-high 24 homers last year with Baltimore and was picked up for a player to be named later.Stripling, 3-1 in seven starts this season, was acquired for two players to be named.The Orioles, meanwhile, acquired minor league RHP Kevin Smith for RHP Miguel Castro, who led Baltimore with 16 appearances out of the bullpen.CHANGING OF THE GUARDCole Sulser, who lost twice over the weekend to Toronto on come-from behind, walk-off hits, will be given a break from his role as Baltimore’s closer, Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said.“We talked today about giving him a couple of breather outings, with a little bit lower intensity, try to get his confidence back,” Hyde said. “I still believe in the stuff, the maturity and his makeup. It’s good to give him a little bit of a reset.”Sulser, who leads Baltimore with five saves, surrendered a game-ending homer on Friday, then issued three walks and a two-run single on Sunday.TRAINER’S ROOMOrioles: No updates were given regarding the three players on the 10-day injury list: RHP Shawn Armstrong (left SI joint inflammation), INF Chris Davis (left knee patellar tendinitis), and OF Austin Hays (non-displaced rib fracture).Blue Jays: SS Bo Bichette (sprained knee) was limited to working out after resuming baseball activities over the weekend. … RHP Ken Giles (forearm strain) is scheduled to pitch live batting practice on Tuesday. … RHP Nate Pearson (elbow tightness) took a day off from playing catch. … RHP Matt Shoemaker (shoulder inflammation) played catch … RHP Trent Thornton (elbow inflammation) was to visit with Dr. James Andrews on Monday. … RHP Jordan Romano (sprained middle finger) will go to Toronto’s training site in Rochester, N.Y. while the Blue Jays go on the road.UP NEXTOrioles: No starter was named for Tuesday’s first game of a two-game series against the Mets.Blue Jays: While no starter has been confirmed for Tuesday’s opener at Miami, Julian Merryweather (0-0, 0.00 ERA) was considered a “possibility” if he wasn’t needed against Baltimore, pitching coach Pete Walker said. Merryweather worked two innings in a spot start in his last appearance against Boston last Tuesday.(Image Credit: AP) Written By Last Updated: 1st September, 2020 06:46 IST Iglesias’ Hit, Throw Help Orioles To 4-3 Win Over Blue Jays José Iglesias and Bryan Holaday had RBI doubles in the 11th inning for Baltimore, and Iglesias threw out the potential tying run at home plate as the Orioles salvaged a 4-3 win against the Toronto Blue Jays to break a five-game losing streak.
