Share Monday 29 November 2010 8:14 pm Topshop owner and government efficiency adviser Sir Philip Green has been named as a target by anti-tax avoidance protesters. Activists linked to UK Uncut have scheduled protests at Topshop branches in Birmingham and Manchester this Saturday, with more expected to follow in the run-up to Christmas, while a group protesting against education cuts and tax avoidance occupied the pavement in front of Topshop’s flagship branch on Oxford Street yesterday. UK Uncut managed to shut down 20 branches of Vodafone earlier this month during action against its tax status in the UK. Sir Philip’s family tax affairs came under fire earlier this year in May when he was appointed by the coalition to report on waste in the government. whatsapp whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content Tax protestors target Topshop Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Tags: NULL

The US Department of the Interior has approved the two most recent gaming compacts, signed by Oklahoma’s Kialegee Tribal Town (KTT) and the United Keetoowah Band of Cherokee Indians (UKB).The compacts, negotiated and signed by Governor Kevin Stitt in July this year, cover Class III and table games, though not sports betting.The KTT deal increases the basic tax on slots to 12% of gross revenue for the first two years, before raising it to 13% on revenue up to $300m, then 14% for revenue between $300m and $500m, and 15% on revenue above this sum.The UKB deal, on the other hand, sets a 12% GGR tax on revenue up to $300m, increasing to 13% for revenue up to $500m, then to 15% on revenue above $500m.The compacts also give the KTT rights to open a new casino in Eastern Oklahoma County, and UKB a similar facility in Logan County.“The US Department of Interior recognizes the State’s good faith effort to negotiate with Oklahoma tribes in the approval of two new gaming compacts that will generate new revenue for public schools in the future and expand economic opportunity for our tribal partners,” Stitt said.“I appreciate and respect the thoughtful leadership of Mekko Brian Givens and Chief Joe Bunch who worked hard to secure fair terms for their citizens, and whose contributions throughout the negotiations ensured a competitive gaming market in Oklahoma,” he continued.Read the full story on iGB North America.

Buying FTSE 100 shares to make a passive income could become an increasingly popular move. After all, the potential to generate an income elsewhere is relatively low. Assets such as bonds and cash have low yields, while buy-to-let property includes diversification challenges.With sectors such as healthcare, utilities and consumer goods remaining relatively unpopular among investors focused on growth, now could be a good time to capitalise on high yields. Over time, they could provide a worthwhile income from a £20k investment, or any other amount.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Making a passive income with utility stocksA number of FTSE 100 shares offer high passive incomes at the present time. However, the uncertain economic outlook means there may be value in purchasing businesses that are relatively unreliant on the economy for their profits. They could deliver resilient incomes for investors that grow in line with inflation.As such, purchasing stocks such as SSE and National Grid could be a shrewd move. They offer dividend yields that are in excess of 5%. SSE has a dividend plan to raise shareholder payouts by at least as much as inflation over the next few years.Meanwhile, National Grid has a long track record of dividend growth. The sector could become more popular if the current stock market bubble bursts during the course of 2021.Buying FTSE 100 shares in the healthcare sectorHealthcare stocks such as GSK and AstraZeneca could also offer worthwhile passive incomes at the present time. GSK has a yield of 5%, and could benefit from its plans to split into two businesses. It may provide greater efficiencies and a sharper focus within pharmaceuticals and consumer healthcare.AstraZeneca’s yield of around 3% is lower than many FTSE 100 shares. However, its double-digit earnings growth forecasts over the next couple of years suggest that passive income growth could be strong. It may also be able to capitalise on long-term growth trends in emerging markets, where it has invested significant sums of capital over recent years.Consumer goods companies with high yieldsFTSE 100 shares with the largest passive incomes at the present time include consumer goods companies such as Imperial Brands and British American Tobacco. They have dividend yields of just over 8%, which have been aided by disappointing share price performances over recent years.Although investor sentiment may be weak towards the sector, British American Tobacco and Imperial Brands have strong brands that are likely to experience resolute demand for their products even in the most challenging economic circumstances. This may lead to rising passive incomes over the long run.The outlook for the economy remains difficult to predict. So their defensive characteristics could be a useful ally. Certainly for an investor who’s seeking to obtain a worthwhile passive income from a £20k investment during what could prove to be a tough year for the world economy.

El clero necesitará la autorización de su Obispo según los términos de la resolución.La moción en la Cámara de Diputados obtuvo la aprobación del 78 por ciento del clero, con el voto favorable de 85 delegados del clero, 22 votos desfavorables y cuatro votos con posiciones divididas; y la aprobación del 76 por ciento de los votos de laicos, 86 votos favorables de los delegados laicos, 19 votos desfavorables y 5 votos con posiciones divididas. Los obispos habían aprobado la resolución el 9 de julio en una votación por nombre con el resultado de 111 votos a favor, 41 en contra y tres abstenciones.La resolución además hiso un llamado a la Comisión Permanente de Liturgia y Música “para que lleve a cabo un proceso de revisión en el próximo trienio, aclarando que este es un tema de “labor inconclusa”, dijo, la Rda. Ruth Meyers, diputada de la diócesis de Chicago al presentar la legislación a los diputados. Ella preside el subcomité sobre bendiciones del Comité del Libro de oración, Liturgia y Música Eclesiástica de la Convención, y la Comisión Permanente sobre Liturgia y Música.La resolución solicitó a la Comisión Permanente de Liturgia y Música para que incluya “perspectivas teológicas diversas en el avance de desarrollo de recursos teológicos” y para que invite a que se obtengan las reacciones de toda la iglesia así como también de la Comunión Anglicana y de los socios de las Iglesias ecuménicas.A resolución indica que, conforme a los cánones vigentes, un clérigo puede rehusar presidir una liturgia de bendición y dice que nadie “debe ser coaccionado ni castigado en modo alguno, ni sufrir ninguna incapacidad canónica” por objetar o por apoyar la decisión de la 77a. Convención General sobre las bendiciones.La Liturgia “es un servicio para bendecir las parejas del mismo sexo quienes están en una relación monógama, leal, comprometida para toda la vida”, dijo Meyers en una sesión informativa de la prensa después que los diputados concluyeran la sesión. “Con ese servicio viene un paquete completo de recursos”.Los recursos incluyen un ensayo teológico, guía sobre la ley canóniga, temas para preparar a las parejas para el servicio de bendición y temas de enseñanza invitándolos a todos a la iglesia “para conversar y reflexionar sobre teología, o si ellos esperan o no que sus congregaciones en algún momento estén preparados para realizar esos servicios”, dijo ella.Actualmente el paquete puede encontrarse comenzando en la página 184 del Libro Azul. (La Convención realizó unas cuantas revisiones a la versión del rito incluido en el informe.)Antes de que la Cámara debatiera la resolución, el Muy Reverendo Rev. David Thurlow, miembro del comité del Libro de Oración, Liturgia y Música y diputado de la diócesis de Carolina del Sur, presentó un informe de minoría a los diputados.“En 2,000 años, la Iglesia ha tenido una enseñanza clara sobre el matrimonio,” él dijo. Asimismo, indicando la preocupación del comité sobre las relaciones ecuménicas en otras áreas, como mantener el uso del Leccionario Común Revisado, Thurlow dijo “nosotros no hemos seguido el consejo de la voz universal de la iglesia universal o de la Comunión Anglicana”.“Esta resolución marca una desviación clara y significativa — teológica, doctrinal y en el culto — de la doctrina, disciplina y culto a Cristo tal como esta Iglesia la recibió,” dijo él. Esta resolución presenta una “nueva teología de la sexualidad humana.”Durante el debate, la presidenta de la Cámara de Diputados Bonnie Anderson hiso un llamada de forma alterna a los partidarios y a los oponentes a esta resolución.“Las señales fuera de nuestra Iglesia dicen que todos somos bienvenidos” dijo el diputado de la diócesis de Michigan Pete Ross, quien instó a la aprobación de la resolución. “¿Necesitamos un asterisco?”El Rdo. Charles Holt, del Centro de la Florida, comentó acerca de la sesión realizada temprano sobre el voto unánime de la cámara sobre una resolución de estructura mayor. “Realmente eso me conmovió mucho de una manera poderosa. Fue la primera vez que me sentí unido a este grupo. Luego unos minutos después, recibimos… algo que son divide profundamente en valores muy, muy fundamentales”.“Aprobar esta resolución,” dijo el Venerable. David Collum, diputado de la diócesis de Albany, “es simplemente ejercer un poder mayoritario contra aquellos con un punto de vista minoritario, que dicen ‘No me importa’”.El Rdo. Jack Zamboni, de Nueva Jersey, recuerda haber tenido el rol de “novio” en una prueba de liturgia en el sínodo provincial 2. “Mi reacción después de participar en esa liturgia fue que yo anhele que [mi esposa] y yo hubiésemos tenido esa liturgia cuando nos casamos hace seis años. Es una pieza de trabajo de liturgia maravillosa”.Él describió como un pareja de lesbianas en su parroquia, que estaban juntas por 30 años, lloraron cuando él les dijo que la convención estaba considerando autorizar el rito que bendeciría su relación.“Ellas nunca pensaron que esto pasaría en sus vidas”.Algunos de los diputados jóvenes de la Cámara contaron relatos [o dieron testimonios] personales al tiempo que instaban la aprobación de la resolución.La diputada de Newark, Caroline Christie, de 18 años, recordó que cuando era niña se preguntaba por qué sus dos tías no podían casarse. “No había diferencia en su relación, excepto que las dos eran mujeres. Al crecer, empecé a darme cuenta que esto era un tema de discriminación. … Las parejas del mismo sexo deben tener la oportunidad de ser bendecidas por la Iglesia”.El diputado de Chicago, Ian Hallas, de 22 años, de la misma manera hablo sobre su familia: su hermana y de su unión civil.“El amor que ella comparte con su pareja es incondicional y es la relación ideal que todos debemos luchar por tener”, él dijo.“Con frecuencia las personas que asisten a la iglesia y los que no asisten a la iglesia me preguntan por qué soy parte de esta iglesia,” él dijo. “La razón por la que regreso es mi hermana. Busco reafirmar que ella no solo tenga el mismo rito de bendición que yo, pero que además ella tenga los mismos privilegios”.Antes de la votación, la cámara tuvo una discusión larga y compleja y prosiguió un pedido para dividir la resolución. Finalmente, la resolución no fue dividida, los diputados votaron aprobar toda la resolución. Los diputados también votaron rechazando un pedido para referir la resolución al Comité Permanente de Liturgia y Música.– Sharon Sheridan es miembro del equipo de Servicio de Prensa Episcopal en la Convención General Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Submit a Press Release Rector Shreveport, LA Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Rector Collierville, TN The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Rector Knoxville, TN Tags Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Rector Tampa, FL Cathedral Dean Boise, ID [Anglican Communion News Service] An independent review has been carried out into the way the Church of England handled allegations that the former bishop of Chichester, George Bell, sexually abused a young girl in the late 1940s and early 1950s. In October 2015, the Church of England issued a statement in which it announced that the complainant had received compensation and an apology. The statement also said that Sussex police had confirmed “that the information obtained from their enquiries would have justified, had he still been alive, Bell’s arrest and interview, on suspicion of serious sexual offenses.” The Church asked senior human rights lawyer Lord Carlile to undertake a review of their handling of the case, after supporters of Bell accused it of unfairly deciding Bell’s guilt.Read the entire article here.

The Bolgoda house was built on an elevated, fan shaped land facing the lake.

Matte black aluminum full-height glass doors open up creating vast open spaces that take in the views and also let in the tropical greenery. The design consists of a lot of linear lines, from the ½ inch board formwork, to textured cut tiles, ½ inch timber baton on the ceilings, and steel vertical lines. Furniture and décor were custom designed by Lalin and made especially for the Bolgoda House.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThis includes the ‘Estate Chair’ made with stainless steel wire frame body and a leather upholstered seat, the credenzas, made with coconut wood in an opposing chevron pattern. Décor elements like stainless steel abstract cubes, venetian glass orbs, chrome lights were used to accentuate the raw stylized feel. Most doors are clad in oxidized copper squares which were cut from discarded copper sheets, and oxidized in-house. Large circular drum window seats made from steel with glass doors are features in the central pond and in the designers studio.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThe circular pattern continues with circular skylights that bring in light to the living spaces and rooms. The main deck features a circular sunken seat built from fiberglass and suspended off the edge of the deck, giving it’s occupants a feeling of floating above the pool and lawn below. The Designer’s studio is a tapering cube that sits cantilevered 20 feet off the rooftop over the central pond. The yellow spiral staircase acts as an ascending library on it’s reverse side. There is a central courtyard pond that has a large green wall and waterfall. The bedroom has it’s own secluded view of the lake, and is fronted by an infinity lap pool, hot tub and private deck. The master bathroom has the lake view in front and a private garden on it’s side. To achieve the desired finishes, a construction manual was created on how to achieve the board formed concrete finish.Save this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThis technique is not one that is often practiced in Sri Lanka, and therefore required a few test runs and do-overs. All of the wall finishes were custom created like textured tiles that were cut into strips to form thin vertical tiles. The master bathroom features hexagonal and strip Carrara marble tiles. While the desired shaped tiles were not available in the country, these shapes were cut with high pressure water jets from large Carrara marble tiles.Save this picture!Elevation – FrontSave this picture!© Tristan Laurens BernardThe entrance of the house and garage are clad in gates made of thin matte black steel bars with the top covered in green foliage.
