Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom InspirationBy Charles TowneAre you in your comfort zone?Remember, the reward is always equal to the effort put forth.The marine laboratory was typical in that it contained many aquariums containing various forms of marine life. One large tank contained an octopus, while across the room another tank held several lobsters. For the first few days after the octopus was placed in its new environment everything was fine, but soon the lobsters began disappearing on the average of one a night.By all evidence, the culprit was an octopus. But, the only octopus in the room was in the tank, eighteen feet away on the other side of the lab. Somewhat mystified, the lab rats set up a video camera to detect any movement in the room, and the camera recorded the following. 1:15 A.M. Nothing unusual. 1:42 A.M. Octopus begins to displaySomewhat mystified, the lab rats set up a video camera to detect any movement in the room and the camera recorded the following. 1:15 A.M. Nothing unusual. 1:42 A.M. Octopus begins to display unusual amount of activity. 2:09 A.M. Octopus pushes up lid on its tank, lowers itself to floor and proceeds to cross room. It enters lobster tank. Octopus captures and eats lobster. 3:47 A.M. Octopus leaves lobster tank and returns to its own habitat. Mystery solved. The octopus was well fed in its own tank except for the fact that it preferred lobster! Imagine it. The octopus was willing to leave the familiar, to venture out into a hostile environment because it craved the reward it could see across the room. The octopus needed the saltwater environment in order to survive, and yet it not only left its habitat, it ventured across eighteen feet of cold dry tile floor twice a night to reach its goal. Imagine how badly the octopus wanted those delicious lobsters to tempt it to make that journey into the unknown. How badly do you want Jesus in your life? Are you willing to venture into the unknown, the unfamiliar, to obtain the life giver?Dear Lord, please inspire me so that I may visualize the dream and purpose you have for my life. Help me to have the courage to venture out beyond my comfort zones, to grasp what you desire for me, and achieve the goals you have for my life. Help me to inspire others and help them to reach their goals.

Real estate makes last-minute push to kill proposed preferred equity tax

first_img Andrew CuomoCommercial Real EstatePoliticsREBNY Email Address* The proposed tax first surfaced in January 2020 and has found its way into the state’s budget resolutions. The industry opposed the tax when it was originally introduced and is now pulling out all the stops to stymie it.“Anytime you have lenders, borrowers and unions who are on the same page on an issue, it’s probably time for policy-makers to pay attention,” said Mike Flood, MBA’s senior vice president of commercial and multifamily.Other organizations that signed on to the letter include the Real Estate Board of New York, the International Council of Shopping Centers, CRE Finance Council and the Building & Construction Trades Council of Greater New York.In the letter, the group argued that the additional tax is likely to be passed on to cash-strapped landlords and their residential and commercial tenants.“A tax on mezzanine debt and preferred equity is a tax on renters and small businesses,” the coalition wrote. They also argued the tax could deter developers from building affordable and market-rate housing.In its memo, Greenberg Traurig also highlighted the tax’s unintended consequences while raising questions about the proposal’s constitutionality. Partner Glenn Newman, the former president of the NYC Tax Commission and the NYC Tax Appeals Tribunal, argued that the state’s constitution guarantees it will not tax “intangibles,” such as money deposited in a New York bank or brokerage or private equity investments.Flood pointed out that there has never been a hearing on the proposed tax and that, based on recent statements from Cuomo and his budget director, Rubert Mujica, the additional revenue isn’t needed.Cuomo and Mujica suggested during a Monday press conference that the $7 billion in taxes the legislature proposed are not necessary, as the state is receiving $12.6 billion in federal aid and higher-than-expected tax revenues.Flood said he was open to discussing the goal of increasing transparency around previously undocumented financing, but expressed doubt that was the primary driver of the proposal.“It’s about the tax,” he said. “If it’s about disclosure, let’s have that conversation.”Flood confirmed the coalition had meetings with lawmakers on the books. When asked if investigations into Cuomo’s alleged sexual harassment were weighing on the industry, he said, “Our feelings on the tax bill would be the same no matter the dynamics in New York.”Contact Erin Hudson From left: Assembly member Harvey Epstein, State Sen. Julia Salazar, MBA’s Mike Flood and REBNY’s James Whelan (Getty, Anuja Shakya/Whelan, MBA/Flood)Real estate players are using a letter-writing campaign and threats of lawsuits to try to stop a tax on preferred equity investors from advancing in state budget negotiations.On Tuesday, 13 local and national real estate organizations sent a letter expressing concerns over the impending tax to Gov. Andrew Cuomo, as well as state Senate and Assembly leaders. The next day, the Mortgage Bankers Association, which organized the petition, encouraged its 80,000-strong membership to send automated letters to their representatives.Meanwhile, lawyers at Greenberg Traurig have penned a memo to clients making a case that the proposed levy violates New York State’s constitution. Stephen Rabinowtiz, who leads the law firm’s real estate practice, said the memo is meant to educate its clients on how to protect themselves against the tax if implemented, which “could, if appropriate, include lawsuits.”ADVERTISEMENT“We work for clients,” he said. “But if we have clients who were interested in challenging the constitutionality of the statute, we would consider doing that.”The idea of taxing mezzanine debt and preferred equity investments, which is a common method for financing commercial real estate projects, is the brainchild of Sen. Julia Salazar and Assembly member Harvey Epstein. The legislators argue the move would bring additional transparency to the market and generate a stream of revenue destined for New York City’s embattled public housing projects. It’s projected to bring in $199 million next year.Read morePols take aim at private equity with plan to tax mezz debtExperts take issue with proposed tax on mezzanine loansNew York preferred equity investors face tax hike Message* Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Full Name* Share via Shortlinklast_img read more

Royal Australian Navy Marks Anniversary of East Timor Attack

first_img View post tag: Royal View post tag: Timor October 6, 2011 Royal Australian Navy Marks Anniversary of East Timor Attack View post tag: of View post tag: Anniversary Authorities View post tag: Marks View post tag: East Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: Australian On the pristine shores of a remote beach in East Timor lies a unique piece of Australian naval history that has been revisited – and remembered.A contingent of Royal Australian Navy (RAN) personnel that are integrated within the Australian-led International Stabilisation Force (ISF) recently visited the site of the wreck of HMAS Voyager (I) on Betano Beach on the far south coast of East Timor.Led by the ISF Chief-of-Staff, Commander Charlie Stephenson, a party of nine Navy personnel flew from their base in Dili to the remote site to mark the 69th anniversary of the sinking of the HMAS Voyager (I) on 22 September 1942.Amid the wide-eyed interest of local East Timorese, the RAN contingent held a memorial service at the wreck site that can still be accessed from a beach head.HMAS Voyager (I) had left its base in Darwin in 1942 to land troops and re-supply an Australian and Timorese militia who were engaged in courageous resistance to the onslaught of some 35,000 invading Japanese.While landing the troops at Betano Bay, the Voyager ran aground in the shallows and was soon spotted by a Japanese Zero fighter. While the fighter was shot down by gunners onboard the Voyager, the alarm had gone out and a Japanese air attack the following day destroyed the vessel.Although all troops onboard had earlier been evacuated, the incident records a historic part of the fight for freedom in Timor.Organizer of the RAN memorial visit, Lieutenant Commander (LCDR) Rick Parry, said the brief service at the site was a sombre and appropriate recognition of battles that had gone before them.“After spending some time at the wreck site, we engaged with the local Betano community who were very interested in the little known piece of history on their local beach,” LCDR Parry said.“Before we landed to see the wreck, our helicopter hovered momentarily at 3,000 feet above the wreck to demonstrate just how much the Voyager was a sitting duck to the low-flying attacking Japanese aircraft.“To all of us it was a privilege to be able to participate in an event that remembers a significant past for Australia and the East Timorese during World War 2.[mappress]Source: navy, October 06, 2011 Back to overview,Home naval-today Royal Australian Navy Marks Anniversary of East Timor Attack View post tag: attack View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more
