The broker says Argos’ product and demographic problems outweigh its core competitive advantage. The Argos business model is not broken but falling margins, low growth and a lack of product emphasis, in the broker’s view, limit the attractiveness of the stock.NOVARTISMore cash and less equity seems in the interest of Novartis’ shareholders, says JP Morgan Cazenove, which reiterates an “overweight” rating on the pharmaceutical giant. The broker says more cash should give Novartis management some flexibility to increase its offer for Alcon minorities and views a merger agreement as a positive trigger for Novartis’ shares.TULLOW OILCitigroup says confirmation of Owo as a major new oil field is a clear positive for Tullow Oil. The broker gives it a “buy” rating but notes expectations were high ahead of the announcement. Citigroup believes the issues surrounding Tullow’s Ugandan portfolio will be resolved in the near-term and views any associated weakness as an opportunity.

Tax exemption for clergy housing allowance ruled unconstitutional – again

first_img Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Martinsville, VA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA [Episcopal News Service] A federal district judge in Wisconsin has once again ruled that the Internal Revenue Service’s clergy parsonage exemption is unconstitutional, a decision that ultimately could have profound financial effects on many Episcopal clergy members and congregations.Judge Barbara Crabb, sitting in Madison in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, said recently that “the plain language of the statute, its legislative history and its operation in practice all demonstrate a preference for ministers over secular employees.”She rejected the defendants’ claim that the exemption was an effort by Congress to treat ministers fairly and avoid religious entanglement, and was part of a larger effort by Congress to help employees with special housing needs.“A desire to alleviate financial hardship on taxpayers is a legitimate purpose, but it is not a secular purpose when Congress eliminates the burden for a group made up of solely religious employees but maintains it for nearly everyone else,” Crabb wrote.“A reasonable observer,” she said, “would view the statute as an endorsement of religion.”The judge gave all parties until Oct. 30 to suggest what remedies would be appropriate, based on her ruling.Freedom from Religion Foundation leaders Annie Laurie Gaylor, Anne Nicol Gaylor and Dan Barker have claimed for years that the IRS “parsonage exemption” violates the U.S. Constitution by providing preferential tax benefits to those whom the agency defines as “ministers of the gospel.” (Anne Nicol Gaylor has since died and been replaced in the suit by the personal representative of her estate, Ian Gaylor.)The plaintiffs say that although the foundation gives them a housing allowance, IRS rules deny their attempts to claim the related expenses under the parsonage exemption because they were not deemed “ministers of the gospel.” Annie Laurie Gaylor is a layperson, as was Anne Nicol Gaylor, her mother. Barker, the foundation’s public relations director, is an ordained minister who the foundation says “gradually outgrew his religious beliefs.”The case, originally titled Freedom from Religion Foundation v. Geithner and Shulman, was filed in September 2011. The original suit named then-U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and IRS head Douglas Shulman as defendants. The current filing replaced them with their successors, Steve Mnuchin and John Koskinen.There are also intervenor-defendants: the Diocese of Chicago and Mid-America of the Russian Orthodox Church Outside of Russia and a minister of one of its churches, the Chicago Embassy Church and its pastor, and Holy Cross Anglican Church in Waukesha, Wisconsin, and its rector, the Rev. Patrick Malone.The court’s decision, which will be litigated for several years and no doubt reach the U.S. Supreme Court, does not apply to clergy who live in church-owned housing, such as rectories. Those clerics can continue to exclude the fair rental value of that home from their income for tax purposes under Section 107(1) of the federal tax code.The employers of most but not all clerics who do not live in church-owned housing designate a portion of a cleric’s salary as a housing allowance. However, if such clerics plan to seek the IRS-allowed parsonage exemption, they must have their employers officially declare (by way of a resolution passed by the organization’s governing body) a specific amount of money that the cleric intends to claim on his or her taxes in the following year.If the cleric can later document the amount of eligible expenses, that amount may be deducted from the cleric’s taxable income. Those expenses include furnishings, maintenance and repair, and certain supplies. For instance, if the enabling resolution sets the amount at $10,000 but the cleric can only document $9,000 in allowed expenses, then only the smaller amount can be deducted. If the cleric had $11,000 in allowed expenses, only $10,000 can be deducted. There is no tax penalty for overestimating the parsonage allowance.Retired and disabled clergy can continue to claim the annual exemption and, in fact, all retirement benefits from the Church Pension Fund come to recipients with the IRS-required housing allowance designation.More information about how parsonage allowances work is available in the current Church Pension Group tax guide on pages 12-16.The federal government appealed Crabb’s original 2013 ruling, and the Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit vacated her judgment on the grounds that plaintiffs did not have standing to sue because they had not “personally claimed and been denied the exemption.” In her latest ruling, Crabb said the IRS, the foundation and its representatives all agreed that this had since happened and seemed likely to happen again.“The practical effect of any ruling will be delayed until the appeals are exhausted, which could take several years,” the Church Alliance – a coalition of 38 church benefit programs that serve mainline Protestant denominations, two branches of Judaism and Catholic dioceses, schools and institutions said in a statement on its website. The group filed an amicus curiae brief when the federal government appealed Crabb’s first ruling.“As the litigation proceeds, the Church Alliance will assess the viability of legislative options to remedy, if possible, or mitigate the impacts on clergy retirement and welfare benefits of such a ruling,” the group said.Congress’s Joint Committee on Taxation has estimated that the exclusions allowed to ministers for housing costs amount to $3.8 billion between 2013 and 2017.Although Church Pension Group has also predicted that the lawsuit will be litigated for years, it warned in its latest tax guide that “ministers and churches should be aware that the housing allowance remains under attack, and one day may be invalidated.”If that happens, CPG said two things must be done immediately. Because ministers covered by the disputed tax code section “will experience an immediate increase in income taxes,” they would need to increase their quarterly estimated tax payments to avoid an underpayment penalty. Most clerics make such quarterly payments because the IRS treats them as self-employed. CPG also noted that “many churches will want to increase ministers’ compensation to offset the financial impact.” Such an increase could be phased in over a period of years to minimize the impact on the church, CPG suggested.— The Rev.

This weekend house is developed in a lot in Gonnet, with the particularity of being on a lot of 11.70m x 24m that overlooks an exterior avenue and the internal street of a closed neighbourhood. The request was based on developing a large meeting place as the main space with a large room that contains a reception space on the top floor that occasionally can function as a bedroom.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaranSave this picture!Ground FloorFrom the premise of blocking the access of the outside street and generating it from within the neighbourhood instead, a simple rectangular volume was raised throughout the lot, seeking the best orientation and the best visuals. A large ground floor environment was developed as a space that can be adapted to different uses, situating the room on the top floor while linking it with the main environment and the exterior. We sought to maximize the space using a double-height that covers part of the main interior space as well as the semi-covered barbeque sector, intensifying the interior-exterior relationship.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaranA simple floating volume wrapped by a shell that adapts to each space by closing it completely or only by containing it, allowing a play of light passing the spaces.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaranThe floor plan generates a semi-covered gallery creating transitions between the interior and the exterior, generating a space for circulation and contemplation that floats above the green and the pool.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaranSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Luis BarandiaranWe differentiate the simple volumes from the raw exposure of the materials. Concrete, wood, iron and the essence of common brick adapted are to this new expression. We thought it was important to accentuate the expressiveness of the house and were faced with the difficult task of deciding its materiality, its shape, its texture and its colour. Not wanting to resign any virtue of the materials, we merged the texture of the concrete with the temperature of the brick. We seek to fit the warmth of the terracotta colour in the grid and the shapes that the concrete block gives us, its proportion of voids and solids and its play with the passage of light by merging in order to add. Adding virtues to specify the search for a new intrinsic expressiveness.Save this picture!© Luis BarandiaranProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for ArchDaily Interns: Winter/Spring 2020Call for SubmissionsSnøhetta Selected to Design the New Visual Identity for the Open-Source Platform Wik…Architecture News Share ArchDaily Projects Argentinalast_img read more

JP McManus charity event launched

first_img Irish Tycoon JP McManus has enlisted the support of golfer Padraig Harrington for the fifth JP McManus Invitational Pro-Am tournament which will take place in 2010 and to date has raised €56 million for local charities.The lucrative charity event is set for the Adare Manor in July of 2010 and Tiger Woods has also promised his attendance.McManus referred to the tougher economic times during the launch of the Pro-Am. National optimism has dipped sharply since the last event, held in the summer of 2005 and raising €30.5 million.McManus told the Irish Times it would be “foolhardy” to predict topping that, but was cautiously optimistic about what the months between now and the charity extravaganza may mean for the Irish economy.“It is a challenge and maybe that makes it more interesting,” McManus said.“In 2005, we had 8,600 participants who played in the qualifiers. And it is more important than ever we get these people back to play. When they play, the various charities charge different prices for their team.“And the last time what happened was, for every €10,000 raised they got a team into the grand qualifier, and for every 10 teams that got into that, one team went on to play in the main event. We do have a completely open draw. It is transparent, believe it or not. So anybody who plays and qualifies has an equal chance of playing with Pádraig or Tiger or whoever. And I think that makes in interesting,” McManus said.The tournament takes place at Adare Manor Hotel and Golf Resort on the July 5th-6th, 2010. The event has a prize fund of €1 million. The format is 56 teams of four players (one professional and three amateurs per team).Tickets – in the form of baseball caps based on a county allegiance – will go on sale from April 2009 in a number of outlets in Limerick city. They will also be available at jpmcmanusproam.com. Since the inaugural event in 1990, the tournament has been held every five years and has attracted the leading golf lights of the day.The aim of the event is to support mid-western charities and groups and proceeds are donated in their entirety towards the relevant services. Beneficiary charities will organise pre-qualifying tournaments throughout the country in the hope of entering teams in the main event. Over 49,000 spectators showed up for the last tournament in 2005.www.jpmcmanusproam.com Howard Lake | 20 November 2008 | News Tagged with: Celebrity Events Ireland  27 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

LEE BOOTH 1932-2016: A woman warrior and internationalist

first_imgBy Debbie Johnson and Cheryl LaBashDetroitLee Booth, March 14, 2009, Detroit International Working Women’s celebration.The Detroit branch of Workers World Party — and the whole party — recently lost comrade Lee Booth of Ypsilanti, Mich., whose spirit of commitment was exemplified by her 65-year relationship with Phil Booth, her surviving life ­partner. She died on Sept. 15 at the age of 84.Lee and Phil together attended demonstrations and meetings for decades supporting Palestine and Cuba and opposing the war in Iraq and other imperialist wars. During that period, Lee also traveled to both Iraq and Cuba in defiance of the imperialist sanctions against those countries.Lee was an eloquent, staunch and firm anti-racist and anti-Zionist. Whenever Zionist speakers appeared at the University of Michigan, she participated in demonstrations against them.The lead poisoning of thousands of Flint, Mich., residents was the most recent cause that brought Lee out to protest, even after she sustained a stroke. She demonstrated outside the home of Rick Snyder, the racist Michigan governor who was responsible for the Flint ­catastrophe.Content to be in the ranks, Lee’s leadership qualities and understanding of the class struggle were plain to see whenever she joined the struggle that was most important at the moment. She brought wisdom, understanding, determination and sensitivity to every activity in which she participated.The Detroit branch presented Lee with the Warrior Woman award in 2013 in appreciation for her commitment to WWP and the struggle against capitalism and imperialism.Lee and Phil contributed for more than 30 years to the national Workers World Supporter Program to help publish this newspaper and regularly made financial contributions to the Detroit branch of WWP. They attended meetings there, although they had to travel for an hour to get to the office.Lee Booth is an example of what it means to be a comrade — and what it is to join in the fight to build a Workers World.

Second online journalist arrested in one week

first_imgNews Twitter blocked, journalism threatened in Nigeria News NigeriaAfrica NigeriaAfrica RSF_en Organisation Help by sharing this information Follow the news on Nigeria News Nigerian news site deliberately blocked, expert report confirmscenter_img Receive email alerts February 8, 2021 Find out more Nigerian investigative journalist forced to flee after massacre disclosures Reporters Without Borders today condemned the arrest of online journalist Emmanuel Emeka Asiwe, a US national, at the Muritala Muhammed international airport on his arrival from the United States on 28 October to visit his sick mother and attend to family matters.He is currently being held at the headquarters of the internal intelligence service, the State Security Service (SSS) in the capital Aubuja. He is the second blogger to be arrested in Nigeria within a week.Emmanuel Emeka Asiwe is editor of online publication HuhuOnline (http://www.huhuonline.com), which he founded in 2007.Since the publication of ironic online photos featuring the son of President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua on Sahara Reporters (http://www.saharareporters.com), the authorities have hardened their stance towards online publications.Online journalist Jonathan Elendu (http://elendureports.com) was imprisoned for 11 days from 18 to 29 October because of articles posted on his website. He had returned to Abuja from his base in the United States to make two documentaries about the current situation in the country. On his release, he described his experience as the “worst of my life”.The authorities confiscated his passport and his luggage. More than a week after his release he is still unable to return home. Considered as a “threat to the country’s internal security”, he risks arrest at any moment if he continues his online work.“The authorities stepped up their surveillance of bloggers after the online publication of embarrassing photos online of the president’s son. The taboo surrounding the head of state, his family and his clan are powerful prohibitions, but which should have no place in a democracy and should certainly not be a matter for intelligence services. The only issue is the release of Emmanuel Emeka Asiwe”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Sahara Reporters was founded in 2005 by human rights activist, Omoyele Sowore, aged 34, who has been calling for democracy in Nigeria since 1992. He has been arrested eight times and tortured. He worked with Jonathan Elendu from 2005 to 2007. Nigeria has five million Internet users, fewer than the African average at 3.5%. Almost two thirds of the users are concentrated in the financial capital, Lagos.
