Stiles and Wirt will co-star with Lily Rabe and Billy Magnussen in the upcoming film The First. Wirt will also appear in Billy Bates, due out in theaters in November. When Bruce (Wirt) and Sue (Stiles) meet four weeks after an uncharacteristic one-night-stand, Sue has this to say to him: one, I had a great time with you that night and two, let’s never see each other again. Thus begins a 4,000 mile journey well beyond the confines of their carefully structured worlds. Bruce is fueled by an overwhelming but undefined compulsion to join her in Phoenix. Sue is reluctantly charmed by his persistence, but steadfast in her resolve to keep him at bay. Phoenix Emmy and Golden Globe Nominee Julia Stiles will return to the stage in Scott Organ’s Phoenix. Directed by Jennifer DeLia and co-starring James Wirt, the off-Broadway production will begin performances at the Cherry Lane Theatre on July 28 and play a limited engagement through August 23. The one-act dark romantic comedy will officially open on August 7. A film adaptation of Pheonix, under the direction of Amy Redford is currently development. The design team for the stage show will be announced shortly. View Comments

Hay and baleage producers in the Southeast have a chance at winning cash and major equipment prizes in the 2016 Southeastern Hay Contest presented by Massey Ferguson. The Southeastern Hay Contest is held in conjunction with the Sunbelt Ag Expo, the South’s premier outdoor farm show.Since 2004, the Southeastern Hay Contest has promoted better hay and baleage production in the Southeast.Last year was a milestone for the contest, with a record number of 375 entries received from across the 13 southeastern states. Organizers, including University of Georgia Cooperative Extension forage specialist Dennis Hancock, hope to break that record by attracting even more entries this year.The deadline for entering the contest is September 22, and the winners will be announced at the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie, Georgia Oct. 18-20.This year’s entries will be judged on their composition, including protein and total digestible nutrients (TDN), and on relative feed quality scores.Producing high quality forage is crucial to increasing feed efficiency and securing the financial well-being of today’s livestock operations. Over the past 10 to 15 years, forage production has really advanced. The advances in harvesting equipment, the use of improved forage varieties and more timely harvest management has resulted in a system which enables producers to make and store more high quality forage than ever before. “This is an exciting time in the hay and forage industry,” Hancock said.Building on the success of the first 11 years of this annual contest, Massey Ferguson has teamed up with a consortium of Southeastern land-grant universities to underwrite the Southeastern Hay Contest. Massey Ferguson will be providing the Grand Prize of a choice between a new RK Professional Series rotary rake or DM Professional Series disc mower for the 2017 hay production season and a $1,000 cash prize. Other forage industry partners are sponsoring the nine separate categories in the contest, providing cash awards to the top three winners in each category: first prize $125, second prize $75, and third prize $50.The University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Feed and Environmental Water Laboratory calculated each sample’s relative forage quality (RFQ) score to compare samples from each category. Last year’s winner was McGee Ranch of Idalou, Texas.More information about the 2016 Southeastern Hay Contest presented by Massey Ferguson is available on the contest’s website at http://bit.ly/SEHayConv16.

One question we always get from our credit unions is: “What if someone posts something negative about our credit union on social media?”There are two types of negative posts. A member with a legitimate complaint, and one with an ax to grind. When you have a member with a legitimate complaint, wouldn’t you rather they post it on your page so you are aware of the issue and can take steps to fix it? continue reading » 8SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

S. District Judge Claude M. Hilton also ordered Thomas Scott Brown, 47, to pay $2.7 million in restitution and to serve five years of supervised released following his prison term. He pleaded guilty in May to one felony count of bank fraud and one felony count to making a false statement to a financial institution.Federal prosecutors said Brown ran an investment properties company in Macon, Ga.Starting in June 2006 Brown purchased properties for buyers with his own money, used a law firm that specialized in real estate transactions to transfer ownership to the buyers and claimed they paid him in full for the properties. However, the properties, some of them foreclosed, were still owned by Brown, prosecutors said in court documents.
Indonesia has set aside Rp 436.1 trillion (US$28.12 billion) from the 2020 state budget for medical needs, social safety net programs, relief for small and medium businesses, as well as relief for manufacturing and tourism-related companies to handle the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis.Some 9.46 million taxpayers have filed their annual tax returns as of Friday, a decrease of 8.8 percent from 11.33 million taxpayers recorded during the same period last year, according to data from Finance Ministry’s Taxation Directorate General. Meanwhile, 412,166 firms have filed their tax returns this year, a decline from last year’s figure of 452,027 firms.“Businesses who have already filed their tax returns will get corporate tax cuts,” Suryo told reporters, calling for more businesses to file their annual tax returns.The government will cut corporate income tax from the current 25 percent to 22 percent for this year and next year, according to Regulation in Lieu of Law No. 1/2020. It will further cut corporate income tax to 20 percent starting in 2022.The Taxation Directorate General has canceled direct face-to-face services and is advising all taxpayers to use online facilities for filing their annual tax returns in compliance with the government’s social distancing policy to help limit the spread of COVID-19.The pandemic has infected nearly 3 million people around the globe, including 9,096 in Indonesia, forcing factories, retail shops and schools to close amid government-imposed lockdowns and social restrictions. This will result in a decline in tax revenue for the government as it expects a widening budget deficit of 5.07 percent.State revenue in the first quarter was up 7.7 percent year-on-year (yoy) at Rp 375.9 trillion after state-owned banks paid large dividends. Tax revenue, however, contracted 2.5 percent to Rp 241.6 trillion in the first quarter.Topics : Indonesia’s tax office has decided to keep the annual tax return (SPTs) filing deadline of April 30 for individuals and firms as filings have dropped significantly during the COVID-19 pandemic.The government, however, will postpone the deadline for individuals and firms to submit required documents to June 30, as the pandemic has disrupted businesses and social activities, said tax office chief Suryo Utomo.“This annual tax payment is crucial to handle the COVID-19 crisis, which needs huge funds,” Suryo told a teleconferenced press briefing held by the country’s COVID-19 task force on Monday. “Please file your tax returns before the deadline.”

Germany’s pension fund association, the aba, has called for national or European bodies to support the industry’s investment in infrastructure by assessing the risk associated with individual projects.Responding to a report by the European Parliament’s committee on economic and monetary affairs (ECON) report examining the long-term financing of the Continent’s economy, the association said that bodies such as the European Investment Bank (EIB) could potentially support Germany’s occupational pensions (bAV) sector, as they so far had little experience of infrastructure investment and were unlikely to become experts in the “niche area” in the near term.The position paper said: “The new assets in the field of long-term investment require more credit analysis and greater credit-analysis skills than existing assets, such as low-risk securities.”Echoing PensionEurope’s own position paper on European Long-Term Investment Funds (ELTIF), the aba also said it would be helpful if the EIB stepped in and guaranteed certain projects. The call comes shortly after asset manager Mirova suggested that fund managers behind ELTIFs should be bound by a ‘comply or explain’ approach on their socially responsible investment strategy.The aba further called on the Parliament to accept that, if the European Commission were to introduce capital requirements for pension funds – as long proposed through the revised IORP Directive – it should also call for an investigation into the impact of the regulation on long-term investing, similar to the one underway to investigate the impact of Solvency II on insurers.The association also reiterated its dislike of the financial transaction tax, saying it “should be avoided for the bAV sector in general – and not only in regard to long-term investments”.“Reductions in the pensions payable in Germany of an estimated 3-8% as a result of the introduction of the proposed financial transaction tax are not acceptable,” it said.,WebsitesWe are not responsible for the content of external sitesLink to the aba’s position paper on long-term financing of the European economy

Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI), one of major shipbuilders in South Korea, has agreed to pay total penalties of more than USD 75 million to resolve the US government’s investigation into violations of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act (FCPA) arising out of a scheme to pay millions of dollars in bribes to Brazilian officials.Beginning in 2007 and continuing until 2013, SHI provided about USD 20 million in commission payments to a Brazilian intermediary, knowing that portions of the money would be paid as bribes to officials at Petrobras, the Brazilian state-owned oil and state-controlled energy company.As explained, SHI made the corrupt payments to secure improper business advantages and to cause Petrobras to enter into a contract to charter a drillship that SHI was selling to a Houston-based offshore oil drilling company, which facilitated SHI executing the sale of the drillship.“Samsung Heavy Industries paid millions of dollars to a Brazilian intermediary, knowing that some of that money would be used to bribe high-level executives at Petrobras and obtain a lucrative shipbuilding contract,” Assistant Attorney General Brian A. Benczkowski of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division, said.“Samsung Heavy Industries caused millions of dollars in corrupt bribe payments to be paid to foreign officials to win business, upsetting what should have been a level playing field for other companies that followed the rules,” U.S. Attorney G. Zachary Terwilliger of the Eastern District of Virginia, commented.SHI entered into a deferred prosecution agreement with the US Department of Justice in connection with a criminal information charging the company with conspiracy to violate the anti-bribery provisions of the FCPA.Pursuant to its agreement with the US DOJ, the shipbuilder has committed to pay a total criminal penalty of USD 75,481,600. Half of that amount will be paid within 10 business days to the US government, and the other half will be paid within the next 12 months either to the Brazilian government if a separate resolution is reached with Brazilian authorities or to the US government if no such payment is made to Brazil during that 12-month period.In related proceedings in Brazil, Samsung Heavy Industries entered into a memorandum of understanding with the Controladoria-Geral da União (CGU) and Advogado-Geral da União (AGU) and a complementary agreement for the negotiation of a leniency agreement with the Ministério Público Federal (MPF).“We deeply regret the company’s involvement in these events, which is contrary to our values and ethical standards,” Joon Ou Nam, CEO of SHI, said in a separate statement.“Many of the events described in our agreement happened more than a decade ago, and the individuals involved are no longer with the company. Over the past years, we have taken extensive steps, at our own initiative, to strengthen our anti-corruption compliance program to meet the highest standards of compliance and ethics,” he added.
