Child benefit proposals hit major hurdle

first_imgThursday 28 October 2010 9:08 pm THE government’s plans to scrap child benefit for higher rate tax payers could be almost impossible to enforce, it emerged yesterday, in the latest saga to hit the controversial reforms. Earlier this month, George Osborne announced plans to axe child benefit for all households that contain at least one higher-rate taxpayer from 2013, saving the exchequer some £2.5bn. The policy, which caused an uproar among the Tory faithful, has been dogged by controversy ever since. But under the existing rules there is no method for establishing whether mothers who receive child benefit are living in a household with a partner that pays tax at the higher 40 per cent rate. Treasury officials are said to believe the policy, which was announced at the Tory conference, will be “unenforceable” as it stands. One civil servant told City A.M. Osborne had failed to consult colleagues at HMRC fully before unveiling the plans. Yesterday, Treasury sources admitted there were no methods to enforce the policy, but insisted measures would be introduced by the time it comes into effect in 2013. Initially, the government will rely on higher rate taxpayers being honest enough to disclose whether their partner is receiving child benefit through a system of self-assessment. HMRC will eventually impose penalties on those higher-rate taxpayers that fail to give up their child benefit. “If you don’t give it up, you’ll be breaking the law, and you’ll be fined,” a Treasury source said yesterday. A spokesperson for the Treasury said: “In line with the administration of tax, HMRC will take action in cases of non disclosure of information which is relevant to a person’s tax affairs. This will include the issuing of penalties.“As we said at the time, the government will bring forward legislation to implement this change in due course.”In a Tweet, chief secretary to the Treasury Danny Alexander said the policy was “completely enforceable” and would be “introduced as planned”.

Friday Funnies – Where’s Wally?

first_imgFriday Nov 5, 2010 Friday Funnies – Where’s Wally? This clip went down quite well when posted on the Rugbydump Facebook Page earlier in the week so I thought it’s best to share it here on the main page for those of you who aren’t yet part of that. If you haven’t yet ‘Liked’ RD, you’re missing out.The Facebook Page is a great place to interact with RD and other users out there. It’s also where world rugby news and site updates are posted, as well as a few random clips, such as this short funny from the past weekend. Like Rugbydumpnow to avoid missing out on the good stuff.The clip comes from the RDS in Dublin and the tight game between Leinster and Edinburgh in the Magners League. It was a game that Leinster narrowly won 19-18 as Isa Nacewakicked 14 points, including a conversion of Andrew Conway’s try. For Edinburgh, big Dutchman Tim Visserscored, as did Chris Paterson, who duly kicked what was asked of him.The best part of the match though was that we finally got an answer to life’s eternal question, “Where’s Wally?” For those of you who aren’t familiar with the children’s books (you might know them as ‘Where’s Waldo’), they are a series of books in which you have to search for the main character amongst a hoard of other people.This post is just a quickie and a little something different ahead of a hectic weekend of rugby, which includes the ITM Cup Final in New Zealand, and of course the big Tests up North.

Sensible tackle law trial announced for new domestic competition

first_imgWednesday Jul 25, 2018 Sensible tackle law trial announced for new domestic competition A new tackle height law trial will take place in the upcoming Championship Cup 2018/2019 season, the RFU announced today. The new domestic competition, which starts in November, will feature a trial law that is designed with player safety in mind.Following a controversial ‘nipple height’ law trial announcement for the World Rugby U20 Trophy competition, the RFU – in collaboration with World Rugby – have made an amendment to Law 9.13.The amended law, taking place only in the Championship Cup, will alter the definition of a high tackle from above the line of the shoulders, to above the armpit line.The amended Championship Cup Law 9.13 will now read: A player must not tackle an opponent early, late or dangerously. Dangerous tackling includes, but is not limited to, tackling or attempting to tackle an opponent above the armpit line even if the tackle starts below the armpit line.The trial aims to assess the impact of introducing a lower tackle height in elite adult rugby on the incidence of concussion and other injuries, player behaviour in the tackle, the nature of tackles, head injury events and other game events.This will include all 43 games in the pool stages and play-off rounds of the competition.A detailed analysis of this trial will be compared to existing data from the English professional game to help inform any wider approach. All data will be shared with World Rugby to be added to research collected from a similar trial in the World Rugby U20 Trophy competition. Nigel Melville RFU Professional Rugby Director said: “The RFU is committed to an evidence-based approach to injury-prevention. We know from our latest professional rugby injury surveillance report that 47% of all match injuries are associated with the tackle and that concussion accounted for 19% of all injuries to the ball carrier and 43% of all injuries to the tackler, highlighting the tackle as the key game event when developing concussion reduction strategies. “We believe lowering the height of the tackle will benefit both the ball carrier and the tackler.”World Rugby believe that having the data on hand from the various trials in different competitions will help them in their continued commitment to further reducing concussion risk in rugby.The Championship Cup, which came to be after the decision of Championship clubs to withdraw from the British & Irish Cup, kicks off on November 10th. Full season fixtures can be viewed here.WATCH: ‘The Bear Pit’, on Bristol Bears, who are now back in the Premiership.

Mogadishu-based journalist killed, ninth this year in Somalia

first_imgNews Receive email alerts February 24, 2021 Find out more to go further News Reporters Without Borders is dismayed by freelance cameraman Zakariye Mohamed Mohamud Moallim’s murder last night in Mogadishu. Aged 24, he was shot in the head and chest by unidentified gunmen in the district of Nasib Bundo and died on the spot, becoming the ninth journalist to be murdered this year in Somalia.For the time being, it is impossible to say whether Moallim was killed in connection with his work. His father, Mohamed Mohamud, is also a journalist and works for Radio Mogadishu.”The new president, Hassan Sheik Mohamud, needs to appreciate the gravity of the situation for journalists in his country, the deadliest in Africa for the media,” Reporters Without Borders said. “By ordering an immediate probe into this freelance cameraman’s death and by giving the investigators the resources they need to arrest and punish those responsible, the president would demonstrate his and his government’s determination to combat the impunity enjoyed by the murderers of journalists until now.”The protection of media workers should be one of the new government’s priorities as the regularity with which they are attacked is liable to encourage even more self-censorship or drive them into exile. Somalia is already a media black hole and news coverage could disappear altogether if nothing is done to end this spiral.”Journalists have been killed at the rate of one a month this year in Somalia.

Bosco Tech Joins Loyola Marymount University in Education

first_img More Cool Stuff Everyone may have noticed the Loyola Marymount University (LMU) banner in front of Bosco Tech and wondered what it means. The school recently has been designated a PLACE (Partners in Los Angeles Catholic Education) Corps School by Loyola Marymount University. In addition, the Tech continues its ongoing partnership with LMU in the university’s CAST Program (Catholic Archdiocese School Teachers). Both are rigorous teaching programs to develop both newer and veteran instructors.PLACE, a nationally recognized teaching service initiative that works in partnership with the University Consortium for Catholic Education (UCCE) and the University of Notre Dame, is built upon the three pillars of spirituality, community, and professional development. Qualified PLACE instructors teach full-time in local Catholic schools, under contract through the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, while completing either a master of arts degree in education and a California Preliminary Credential (or both simultaneously) through LMU.Similarly, the CAST program allows veteran instructors to earn their California teaching credential and master’s degree in education while continuing to teach full-time in local Catholic school. CAST places a premium on technology, focusing on bridging educational theories with the realities of today’s classroom.While PLACE is for teachers who have more recently completed their undergraduate studies, CAST is an opportunity for seasoned instructors who have been teaching for several years.Bosco Tech is fortunate to have teachers currently participating in both programs. We wish them well in their studies and commend them for their dedication to their profession!Don Bosco Technical Institute, 1151 San Gabriel Blvd., Rosemead, (626) 940-2000 or visit www.boscotech.edu.

Foust sees second generations come through Odessa PAL

first_img Facebook Pinterest Twitter Foust sees second generations come through Odessa PAL WhatsApp Twitter Facebook Eight-year-old Mikayla Hamilton throws the ball over the net while playing Nuke’em. For the past 21 years, Odessa Police Department Sgt. Jon Foust has watched hundreds of children participate in the Odessa Police Athletic League.Foust said he has been in charge of the program long enough to see second generations come through the program.The Odessa PAL has been around for the past 27 years. It’s a four-week program that offers children ages 8 to 12 the opportunity to participate in summer activities.“I have children of children that I started with. Now, I know what a teacher feels like,” Foust said with a smile. “It’s important that those kids trust me enough to bring their kids back to me. It’s good for my heart.”Due to the overwhelming demand for the four-week program, Odessa PAL has added a second session for the second straight year.There are 75 children signed up for each session. The first session began Monday and will continue until June 28. The second session is from July 8 to Aug. 2. The program is from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.OPD spokesperson Cpl. Steve LeSueur said each session filled up quickly. There are about 350 PALs throughout the country, but very few in Texas. Foust said the closest PAL to Odessa is in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.“The response that we receive is overwhelming,” LeSueur said. “We don’t really have to advertise for it. As soon as we put it out there that we are having registration, it fills up within minutes for both sessions.”Three 13-year-olds that previously participated in the program are now volunteers.Ariana Rincon of Odessa knew she wanted to be a volunteer when she was 10. She first participated in the Odessa PAL when she was 8.“Being a volunteer, it is amazing,” Rincon said. “We get to help these kids achieve their goals and they learn how to play different sports. It’s really fun.”Ciandra Mendoza of Dallas said it’s a tradition to spend time in Odessa during the summer.Foust said the volunteers must come through the program and can be a volunteer until they are 18. Foust added there are between eight and 12 officers that help each day of camp. He also said officers are welcome to volunteer on their days off. “I’ve been in this program since I was 7,” Mendoza said. “I always had fun and listened to the officers and liked playing the games.”Rincon and Mendoza were both assisting officers as children played football. Children also play volleyball, basketball, soccer, tug-o-war and capture the flag. Foust said the children’s favorite activity, which is used as a reward, is dodgeball.Sierra Britton of Odessa enjoys working with children. She added that she has a greater appreciation for the officers and volunteers in the program.“It’s fun to be a volunteer and to be a participant,” Britton said. “You get to see what the kid’s perspective is and now what it’s like for the volunteers.”center_img Pinterest WhatsApp TAGS  Local NewsLaw Enforcement By Digital AIM Web Support – February 24, 2021 Previous articleWhat’s Going On June 21Next articleRockHounds-Cardinals Digital AIM Web Supportlast_img read more

Profit-Per-Loan Hits Record High in 2020

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / Profit-Per-Loan Hits Record High in 2020 Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Profit-Per-Loan Hits Record High in 2020 Sign up for DS News Daily April 13, 2021 635 Views The Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) has reported that independent mortgage banks (IMBs) and mortgage subsidiaries of chartered banks made an average profit of $4,202 on each loan originated in 2020, a $1,470 increase per loan over 2019’s totals.”The year 2020 was a banner year for the mortgage industry, despite the COVID-19 global health crisis essentially shutting down the U.S. economy in March and forcing personnel into remote work environments,” said Marina Walsh, MBA’s Vice President of Industry Analysis. “A surge in housing and mortgage demand, record-low mortgage rates, and widening credit spreads translated into soaring net production profits that reached their highest levels since the inception of MBA’s annual report in 2008.”The Annual Mortgage Bankers Performance Report found that the average production volume was $4.5 billion (16,198 loans) per company in 2020, up from $2.7 billion (10,411 loans) per company in 2019. On a repeater company basis, average production volume was $4.4 billion (15,669 loans) in 2020, up from $2.5 billion (9,430 loans) in 2019. For the mortgage industry as whole, MBA estimates production volume at $3.83 trillion in 2020—the highest annual volume ever reported—up from $2.25 trillion in 2019.Profits on the production side compensated for the servicing losses. Including both production and servicing operations, 99% of the firms posted overall pre-tax net financial profits in 2020, compared to 92% of firms in 2019 and only 69% of firms in 2018.”In early 2021, we are already seeing declines in pipeline volume—particularly refinance volume—as mortgage rates have risen in the first quarter,” said Walsh. “Also, secondary marketing income has dropped from last year’s highs, as credit spreads have tightened. Mortgage companies that can adjust quickly to changing market conditions and are able to harness still robust purchase demand are best poised for a successful 2021.”Walsh noted that the driver of production profitability in 2020 was production revenue, led by strong secondary marketing gains. Historically, production expenses drop when volume increases, but per-loan production expenses rose in 2020, as companies offered signing bonuses, incentives, overtime, and other compensation to address capacity constraints and meet mortgage demand. Furthermore, rising loan balances meant large sales commissions, often earned based on a percentage of the loan amount.Click here for more on the MBA’s Annual Mortgage Bankers Performance Report.
