In an interview with the Financial Times, Balls drew comparisons between King’s stance and the backing lent by the Bank of England to the Treasury’s fiscal hawks during the Great Depression.BRUSSELS ATTACKS RULES ON TAX AVOIDANCE Revenue & Customs’ main weapon for stopping offshore tax avoidance is under attack from Brussels, which says rules that stop investors moving their wealth abroad impinge on fundamental principles of the single market.

Apopka Incumbents: An Endangered Species?

first_img Political Opinion/AnalysisApopka spoke loud and clear yesterday. Doug Bankson defeated incumbent Commissioner Sam Ruth with 2,707 votes to 2,170 to take Seat #3. Kyle Becker defeated incumbent Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith with 2,689 votes to 2,206 to take Seat #4.Sam Ruth congratulates Doug BanksonThose are pretty solid margins in races that most people expected to be much closer.But while Apopka’s choices were black and white, the message they sent is light grey. What exactly were the voters telling their leaders?Let’s explore a few themes…Incumbents beware!Congratulations again to Doug Bankson and Kyle Becker. Enjoy Seats #3 and #4. Luxurious and elegant seats aren’t they? Cushiony and a nice high back you can just ease into and spend a couple hours every two weeks… But don’t get too comfortable in them. You may not be staying long.Apopka incumbents are on a losing streak that dates back to 2012, and now you guys are Apopka incumbents.Term limits may not be as big an issue in Apopka as once thought. Incumbents don’t seem to stick around anymore. Despite a national average of  winning about 88% of the municipal elections, the incumbents in Apopka may need to go on the endangered species list. Take a look at the statistics over the past few election cycles:Since 2012 Apopka incumbents have lost every contested political race for City Council. That streak now stretches to four in a row after victories by Bankson and Becker.In 2014 Mayor Joe Kilsheimer defeated 59-year incumbent John Land for Mayor. That same year Commissioner Diane Velazquez defeated 16-year incumbent Marilyn Ustler-McQueen.In 2012 then 35-year incumbent Bill Arrowsmith ran un-opposed. Incumbent 8-year Kathy Till chose not to seek re-election. Kilsheimer won her seat.Commissioner Billie Dean was the last incumbent to defend his seat against an opponent – beating Barb Zakszewski in 2010 with 1,164 votes to her 725.This level of attrition has dramatically affected the experience on Apopka’s City Council.In 2012, the combined years of experience was 126. The new council only has 28 years of experience, and that is mostly due to Dean’s 22 years on the City Council.If Dean, Velazquez and Kilsheimer were to lose their races in 2018 (or choose not to run), the City Council could conceivably have only 4 years of experience between the five members.Kyle BeckerOn the surface, this doesn’t seem to concern Apopka voters. But was this election really about incumbents vs. challengers?“The Good Old Boy Network” vs. “A Coalition of Sorts”These two phrases were used a lot on social media to describe what can be called the Mayor Land “old guard” vs. The Team Kilsheimer “new guard”. The premise was that Bankson and Arrowsmith were part of a “good old boy network” that would vote in a block against Kilsheimer’s agenda, while Becker and Ruth would align with Kilsheimer, become “a coalition of sorts” and vote with him in “yes man” fashion.Both Bankson and Becker aggressively pushed-back on this assertion.“Strategically I would align with the Mayor,” Becker said in an interview earlier in the campaign. “Tactically I may not. I’m running on my own merits. There’s going to be times where I disagree and I’ll vote accordingly. Are there going to be tactical differences? Absolutely. And I want to have healthy debate. Not political debate. I think friction sharpens the point. I don’t see how it’s a negative to say there would be alignment on the council. But I think for myself. And there will be times when I vote with the majority, but I have no fear of casting a no vote.”Bankson was definitely ready to move on from divisions.“I think it’s time to move past polarization and draw together as a city, ” he said today.  “I’m aligned with the people of Apopka and I look forward to building consensus so that we can move forward together.We have an amazing past and a fantastic future and I am both humbled and privileged to serve all the people of Apopka.”Election fundamentals 2016Throughout this election, both Bankson and Becker ran state-of-the-art campaigns. They used social media strategically. They built appealing, user-friendly websites. They spoke well at forums. They kept drama to a minimum. They knocked on hundreds of doors and obviously resonated with voters. They targeted their supporters and got them to turnout on Election Day, through early voting or by mailing in their ballots.These are the tactics of a 2016 campaign on the local level. If you are qualified, have a message that resonates, manage your campaign efficiently, and follow these fundamentals, you win elections.It is not to say Bankson and Becker are better qualified to move Apopka forward than Arrowsmith or Ruth. It is to say Bankson and Becker put themselves in a position to win by running effective campaigns that connected with this electorate.But in this election, the voters of Apopka looked past the titles of incumbency and the factions of  “networks and coalitions” and simply voted for the two candidates they liked best.

Tenita Reid Mama Miacenter_img Mama Mia Reply Reply Reply Lets talk about another endangered species, the Florida black bear! They are planning yet another bear hunt! They are corralling off the bears before the hunt by controlled burns, and removing the foliage and brush where the bears will run to the areas where they are planning on shooting them. They do these controlled burns also too often throughout the year. Yes, controlled burns might help to prevent bigger flash fires, but they are being conducted way too often. They are building the Wekiva Parkway, and that takes out the bear habit. They are building homes, and that too takes away the forests. The governor will not be happy until there are hardly any bears left. FWC is out of control. They need some new members on the board that makes better decisions concerning the wildlife. So the governor gave a bunch of money for the environment. He is no environmentalist! All show and smoke and mirrors! Lake Apopka will get 5 million for help. Will it help Lake Apopka? No, the damage is too great, with chemicals that don’t break down practically forever. Tenita Reid Apopka Community Facts Uncensored/Facebook———Not so fast. All campaign signs are not down.

Or are you planning on leaving them up until the next election? Your arrogance is hard to BEAR! Reply Reply There was a huge turnout for the March 15, 2016 Apopka election, then for the run off, it was not nearly as many as before, less than half. That was devastating to the two incumbents who lost. It seems like so many citizens only cared about the national race. It is really sad that people do not understand how important the local elections are, and how that what is voted in locally, affects their daily life. I have read where there are so many local mayors, and the Florida League of Cities, and how they dislike the Florida Legislators attempts to make the local elections piggyback onto the national elections when possible. Truly, I don’t understand why they fight this so. It would seem that it would cost less, and get more voters to the polls to vote, for city officials up for re-election and newcomers up for the run. Oh well, $ 28,000 dollars for the Apopka run-off is too much in my opinion. I wonder if there will be any attempts to prevent such run-offs, as some have suggested, with an amendment of the election rules? The photo of Commissioner Diane Velazquez posing next to the old mayor’s statue is an eye opener. Wow, the old mayor is BIG, bigger than life, and he still looks like he is wearing a pink suit to me! LOL! Put the old mayor’s statue on a tall pedestal and the old mayor MIGHT even look down on Kyle Becker. LOL! Reply Man, I am reading the Apopka Chief, and now I know I am getting OLD! I am reading an article in the Apopka Chief, Page B1, April 15, 2016, and I see a “kid” that grew up here on my street, years ago, and he lived in the house on the end between my mother’s house, and my house, on our street, until they moved away. I guess they got tired of my mama and myself walking back and forth to each other’s house down the side of their yard. So sorry. That kid I remember who used to live here on my street, when his daddy was coach, is now 32 years old and is the executive and artistic director of Opera Orlando! Wow! Congratulations Gabriel Preisser! Now I know I am getting OLD, good grief!

The audio icon which looks like a film reel is already posted, like there was a recorded audio already!!! Huh? I logged on to hear it, and it read error. I was going to say, what in the world, I suppose that was the surprise for the next council meeting which will be 4/20/2016 at 7 pm. LOL! I wonder what the next city council meeting will be like?

The house is located in an old residential area in Kaunas city, where the clients have chosen a special plot located across the century-old oak tree park. The plot also has an old oak tree and during the design process, architects tried to find the perfect position for the house as well as incorporate the tree into their plans. The tree is the main feature of the building plot and the yard, with the main windows of the house being directed at it. On the ground floor, living areas are oriented to the south and south-west side of the plot. The master bedroom on the first floor is oriented to the oak park on the east side.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbacauskasSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Leonas GarbacauskasThe architecture and the structure of the building are designed to maximize the sunlight access during all seasons. The roof planes, on both the first and second floors of the south side, are extended by designing the roofs over the sleeping and leisure areas, so that in the summer when the sun rises, the premises will be protected from overheating, and in winter, when the sun is nearer to the horizon, they will not block the incoming light. The house layout flows freely. The rooms are located in one space, connected to each other, making it possible to move freely from the kitchen to the dining, the living room, and the sauna area.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbacauskasAll rooms have access to the courtyard terrace and the pool. The areas are separated partially, installing a fireplace between the dining room and the living room, and a closet between the kitchen and the dining room. The exterior of the building is divided into three closely related volumes of concrete structures. The roofs of the house are covered with galvanized steel that envelops and frame the walls of concrete structures. Walls are left natural and untreated, avoiding an overly elaborate and perfect image.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbacauskasHorizontal concrete formwork patterns are used not only in the façade, but also extended inside the house – so the architecture becomes the full-bodied and intertwined throughout the building’s volume, and its elements fit into the interior. Concrete walls are paired with natural wood panels, the interior looks elemental and raw, but nonetheless warm and welcoming. The white cast concrete floor coating helps to balance the severity of the wall finishing materials. Combination of soft and hard materials creates richness for the owner to enjoy every and each living place.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbacauskasSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Leonas GarbacauskasThe interior is furnished with many custom-made furniture pieces that create an inclusive overall effect. The blue artwork in the living room reflects the clients’ passion for the water and has a colorful connection with the pool outside. The overall view of the interior of the house is quite clean, with minimalist shapes, a natural palette and a variety of textures. This house blends the new design with the old elements of nature, offering a retreat, but also addressing the owner’s needs of busy family life and providing a perfect space for entertaining.Save this picture!© Leonas GarbacauskasProject gallerySee allShow lessSpiritea Tea Shop / New Practice StudioSelected ProjectsT-HAM PABP Factory / WZWX Architecture GroupSelected Projects Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyHouses•Kaunas, Lithuania Lead Architects: CopyAbout this officeA3DOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKaunasLithuaniaPublished on July 22, 2019Cite: “OAK House / A3D” 22 Jul 2019.

Government Board selects 360Giving Data Standard for disclosing of grant data

first_img The UK Government’s Open Standards Board has selected the 360Giving Data Standard for use by central government departments and their agencies when disclosing grant giving data.The board’s purpose is to encourage departments to use open standards to save money, but also to make better use of data as well as to collaborate.Jeni Tennison, CEO of the Open Data Institute said:“It is great to see that the 360Giving Standard has been approved as an official government standard for the open publication of grant awards by the public sector. It is an excellent complement to the Open Contracting Data Standard, which focuses on government procurement.“Data standards make it easier to build tools that can work across data from different organisations. Standards help people understand how things change over time, compare what different organisations are doing, and relate data of different types. All parts of government issue grants and contracts; publishing this data in a standard way helps government, other grant givers, grantees, contractors and the interested public to see and understand the bigger picture of government spending.”Founder and Chair of 360Giving Fran Perrin added: Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3 Tagged with: data grants Government Board selects 360Giving Data Standard for disclosing of grant data Melanie May | 22 March 2019 | News “Now that our data standard is official government guidance, we are looking forward to more government departments, local authorities and other parts of the public sector joining our community of 100 grantmakers giving us the bigger picture about funding flows to the charity sector.”  216 total views,  3 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis3  215 total views,  2 views today About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

President Donald Trump notified lawmakers he will enter an agreement on tariffs and digital trade with Japan, as the two sides wrap up the talks still this month. The White House published the notice Monday evening. Trump told lawmakers he is “pleased to report that my administration has reached an initial trade agreement.” The agreement is expected to be signed along the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly in New York this month. The agreement does not need approval from Congress and can go into effect immediately. The agreement will mostly lower tariffs on U.S. ag products, to levels granted to other exporters to Japan in the Comprehensive and Progress Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership.The lower tariffs will allow U.S. farmers to better compete in the Japanese market. Top U.S. agricultural exports to Japan currently include beef, corn, pork, soybeans and wheat, totaling $13 billion last year.last_img read more

While requesting the court for an adjournment, he submitted that he is opposing any interim relief.”I’m persuaded by the trial court’s order. Interim protection cannot be given at this stage”,the Court saidDuring the course of hearing today, Singhvi argued that punishment cannot be given to a person before fixation of price of an essential commodity.Advertisement He stated that for such a purpose, an order under Section 3(1) of Essential Commodities Act is a must and that the act of monitoring such a price comes after MRP is fixed.On the other hand, ASG Raju apprised the Court that around 7,000 oxygen Concentrators machines were imported by Kalra.Singhvi argued that some machines were sold to Police Officers and some were donated to covid care centres.”I hope my friend doesn’t want to prosecute me for donating sub standard machines.” Singhvi submitted at the outset.Advertisement Advertisement Singhvi further argued that it is not the job of the police to try and prove the Anticipatory Bail to be infructuous before the court and that they have found today morning at the break of the dawn, that Delhi Police’s SI with others were visiting the house of Kalra’s relatives.”They are visiting the house of brother in law of the accused. His father in law is separately being paid courtesy calls. The job of the police, influenced by the press, is not this. Today morning SI goes there, Mr. Raju is now asking for time.” Singhvi argued.

Do you have the ability to have these Concentrators without a license? If they are drugs, then they can be sold and manufactured through valid licenses”, the Court orally remarked.Denying the allegations of black marketing and Hoarding, Singhvi submitted before the Court that the oxygen concentrators were purchased by the importer namely Matrix Services Limited and that the same was done through proper legal channels including GST payments.
