Farm Bureau Looking for Paycheck Protection Fix

AFBF recently sent Congress a letter asking them to ensure farmers won’t pay taxes on forgiven Paycheck Protection Program loans. AFBF Senior Congressional Relations Director Pat Wolff says there is an IRS regulation that has small businesses and farms facing a tax burden for using PPP funds.“Congress needs to act, or farmers and ranchers and other small businesses are going to see a big and surprise tax increase when they file their taxes,” Wolff said. “When Congress passed PPP loans, they intended for them to be tax free. The IRS issued regulations to the contrary, and Congress needs to fix it by passing a bill preferably before the end of the year.”PPP loans were meant to provide tax-free COVID assistance that makes payroll, rent, mortgage interest or utility expenses paid for using the funds tax-deductible as business expenses.“If you do what the IRS proposes, and tax that loan, you’ve done something that’s contrary to what Congress meant and it takes away money that farmers need to operate their businesses,” said Wolff.With little time remaining in Congress for action, Wolff says the correction needs to be attached to other pending legislation.“It’s not likely that there is going to be any free-standing bills moving, so the ask for today is that Congress incorporate this fix into any piece of legislation that is moving.”Such legislation could be the appropriations bill, a tag-on tax bill, or anything else that’s moving.Source: AFBFlast_img read more

Trump Fires National Security Adviser John Bolton

first_imgNational Security Adviser John Bolton is out.President Trump announced the firing via Twitter on Tuesday.Trump noted that he “disagreed strongly” with many of Bolton’s suggestions, “as did others” in the administration.….I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) September 10, 2019 The president vowed to name a new national security adviser next week.He also thanked Bolton for his service.Bolton seemingly blindsided by Trump quickly responded to the news via Twitter saying that he offered to resign Monday evening.I offered to resign last night and President Trump said, “Let’s talk about it tomorrow.”— John Bolton (@AmbJohnBolton) September 10, 2019 However, Trump claims he had asked for Bolton’s resignation that night.One key area of disagreement between the two involved the future role of the U.S. military in Afghanistan.Bolton is not the first high-ranking Trump administration official to be ousted by the president via Twitter.In March of 2018, the President announced via Twitter that Mike Pompeo, the current director of the CIA, would replace Secretary Rex Tillerson at the State Department.In the summer of 2018, former FBI director James Comey was made aware of his firing during a speech he was giving at the FBI field office in Los Angeles.No other information is available at the time.last_img read more

Telecom Spending Spree: Time Warner Cable Snatches Up Enterprise Cloud Hosting and Management Company NaviSite

first_imgMassive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… Hot on the heels of Verizon‘s acquisition of Terremark, Time Warner Cable is acquiring NaviSite, an enterprise cloud hosting and management company. Time Warner Cable will pay $5.50 a share, or approximately $230 million. Meanwhile, speculation is rampant that Savvis will be acquired, though its CEO James Ousley says things are business as usual for the company.NaviSite was founded in 1997. At the core of its service is NaviCloud, its infrastructure-as-a-service offering. According to Gartner, “NaviSite can offer its managed application services on NaviCloud, reducing its provisioning times for complex applications from several weeks to as little as an hour.”Last week when Verizon announced its acquisition of Terremark we predicted that telcos would go on a spending spree. Consolidation is a watch word this year as many large companies look to get into cloud computing. We quoted EMC‘s Vice President of Global Marketing and CTO Chuck Hollis’s saying “If you believe in the secular trend that — over time — more IT will be delivered as a service vs. consumed in a traditional fashion, you quickly realize that telcos can have a compelling position.”That does seem to the reasoning behind Time Warner’s acquisition today. From the announcement:“Our commercial services business is a key growth driver for the company and one in which we continue to see great opportunity,” said Glenn Britt, Chairman and CEO of Time Warner Cable. “NaviSite provides us with a successful managed services business and a new, innovative managed cloud platform representing significant new growth opportunities.Savvis and Terremark were positioned as a “Leaders” in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service and Web Hosting. NaviSite was positioned in the “Challengers” quadrant, but right on the edge of being a leader.

Clarett returns to Ohio State for classes

Former Ohio State running back Maurice Clarett has enrolled in classes at the university for the second summer session, which began on Monday. “Maurice Clarett has been granted reentry into The Ohio State University, following a review by the College of Education and Human Ecology, where he was originally enrolled,” OSU director of media relations Jim Lynch said in a statement.Clarett was released from the Toledo Correctional Institution in April after serving on 3 ½ years of a 7 ½ year sentence for aggravated robbery and carrying a concealed weapon.In negotiation with his early release, Clarett was ordered to spend four to six months at a dormitory step-down center on Alum Creek Drive. Inmates are permitted leave to work or attend classes.Clarett was quickly recognized on campus. “This is a surreal feeling to be back at Ohio State in such a supportive environment,” Clarett said in a statement. “I have looked forward to being back in school and I’m doing my best to fit in with other students. I don’t want to be a distraction or nuisance to the football team or to students on campus.”Clarett might be back in the classroom, but he won’t be making an appearance on the field. After the Buckeyes’ 2002 National Championship, Clarett signed with an agent, forfeiting any remaining eligibility. read more

Ohio State athletics selfreports 9 minor NCAA violations so far in 2014

Redacted SportOutside Competition Expense Reported Feb. 3In the unnamed sport, a student-athlete who was competing unattached suffered a head injury and thus was unable to complete the competition. An OSU athletic trainer was present at the event, however, because OSU student-athletes were participating at the same competition. The trainer deemed it necessary for the injured student-athlete to receive medical attention and transportation home on the team bus so they could observe them and make sure their condition didn’t get worse. The head coach of the sport called OSU Compliance prior to the trip home, and the Compliance Office approved the trip and services for out of concern for the student-athlete’s personal welfare. FootballImpermissible Scouting Reported Jan. 9During a weekend in November 2013 — the exact date was redacted — a football graduate assistant coach took a trip to a school — one where he was formerly employed as a graduate assistant — to attend a game. The name of the graduate assistant coach was redacted in the report, in addition to where he traveled, who he was going to visit, what type of sport he was seeing and where his other friends were from. Impermissible Lodging Reported Feb. 19During an official campus visit from Dec. 13 to 15, a prospective student-athlete and his family were reserved three hotel rooms by the institution: one for the athlete himself, one for his father and brother and one for his mother, who is separated from his father. According to the report, the OSU football staff did not know the prospect’s mother had decided not to attend the visit, and because her room was going unused, the prospect’s brother asked the hotel clerk to allow him to use it instead. The clerk complied with this request because he was a family member. In addition to sending a letter to educate the football staff that emphasized the rules about lodging during official visits, the prospect has been declared ineligible by the institution until he repays the value of the room to a charity. Men’s VolleyballImpermissible Seating Reported Feb. 20Two prospective student-athletes were on campus for official visits Nov. 23, and attended the football team’s game against Indiana. Before a game begins, prospects who are on recruiting trips are permitted to be on the field until approximately 10 minutes before kickoff and are then asked to take their seats. On this occasion, a long line had formed to exit the field because of the cold temperatures that day, and the prospects instead chose to wait on the sidelines next to a heater. They did not leave the field until after kickoff. In addition to a letter of education sent to the coaching staff of the volleyball program, a member of the coaching staff will now accompany all visiting prospects on the sidelines before football games. Click to expand.Ohio State athletics has committed at least nine violations in less than three months.OSU has so far self-reported at least nine minor violations in 2014, six of which included prospective student-athletes. The sport for one self-reported violation was redacted from the request, along with the name of the student-athlete involved.Of the nine reported violations, the sport with the highest number of violations so far in 2014 is the football team, with two.The figure is a result of an open records request submitted Feb. 24 by The Lantern and released Wednesday by the OSU public records office.None of the violations are considered major. The reason the sport was redacted on a violation reported Feb. 3 was because of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, paralegal and Public Records Office program manager Rebecca Dickson said in an email.“FERPA obligates us to redact information which could lead to the identification of the particular student,” Dickson said. “Redacting the sport allowed us to still help you to understand the gist of that particular violation, yet still protect the privacy of the particular student, as is required by federal law.”Much like the 24 violations that were self-reported by the athletic department in the latter half of 2013, the school proposed its own corrective action to either the Big Ten or NCAA in eight of the nine cases. The lone violation for which the institution, or OSU, deemed “no further action (was) necessary” was the case with the redacted information, as it involved a student-athlete’s immediate health at the time of the violation according to the report.The corrective actions included providing a letter to educate the sports’ respective staffs of the rules of OSU Compliance, as well as holding meetings with the office. The most recent violation report was Feb. 20. WrestlingPrivate Camp Advertising Reported Feb. 4After submitting a copy of a proposed camp advertisement to the Compliance Office and having it approved, a non-institutional camp director submitted it on an online message board to promote the camp. When the director submitted it to the office, it did not have the names or images of any OSU student-athletes, but when he or she put it online, the message board added the names and pictures of four OSU student-athletes to the advertisement. The advertisement was quickly removed by the non-institutional camp director after working with the Compliance Office, and OSU said it believed no further action was necessary. Men’s GymnasticsImpermissible Text Message Reported Jan. 22An impermissible text message was sent to a prospective student-athlete. In addition to the letter of education sent to the gymnastics coaching staff, the institution prohibited them from contacting all prospective student-athletes from Dec. 4 to 11. Women’s TennisPublicity of Prospect’s Visit Reported Feb. 3A pair of prospective student-athletes was on the field with the team as they were being recognized at halftime of the football team’s game against Buffalo Aug. 31. Women’s Field HockeyImpermissible Phone Calls Reported Jan. 9Assistant coach Kelly Terwilliger called two prospective student-athletes twice in one week. The compliance office issued a letter of education to the women’s field hockey coaching staff, and the institution never recruited either prospective student-athlete, who have since enrolled at an institution other than OSU. Women’s BasketballImpermissible Text Message Reported Feb. 3An assistant coach sent an email to a parent of a prospective student-athlete. After issuing the coaching staff a letter of education regarding the use of electronic correspondence in recruiting, the institution also forbade them from contacting the athlete until Sept. 15, 2015 — two weeks later than what would have been the first permissible date to begin contacting her. read more

Mens Volleyball Ohio State advances to MIVA semifinals after 30 beatdown of

Credit: Ris Twigg | Assistant Photo EditorThe No. 7 Ohio State men’s volleyball team will advance to the MIVA tournament semifinals after sweeping Quincy in three straight sets Saturday. The Hawks came into the match thoroughly outmatched, having lost 3-0 the two times they played the Buckeyes during the regular season and posting a 12-18 regular-season overall record and 0-14 conference record compared to the top-seeded Buckeyes.The Hawks managed to stay a few only a few steps behind the Buckeyes in the first two sets, but were left in the dust in the third when Ohio State ended the set with more than double Quincy’s points.Though Quincy kept close on Ohio State’s heels in the first set, the majority of Quincy points were a result of Ohio State miscues. Quincy senior outside hitter Anthony Winters carried his team through the first set with seven of the team’s 12 kills, but his team still fell in the set 25-22. The Buckeyes ensured the second set was not nearly as close, picking up offensive momentum and pulling away with a 25-18 win. Winters was unable to maintain the offensive pressure he showcased in the first set due in part to Ohio State’s hitting percentage reaching a match-high .476.In the third set, the Hawks lost whatever hope they had of a comeback when the Buckeyes routed Quincy for the 25-12 set win to clinch the win. The Hawks fell apart, scoring half of their points and receiving the other half from Buckeye errors.The Hawks — the No. 8 seed in the MIVA — are eliminated from the conference tournament while Ohio State will compete against the No. 4-seeded Lewis Flyers at St. John Arena Wednesday in the semifinals. read more
