[email protected] A Nevada lawmaker has introduced a bill to fight the rising cost of medicines, one of dozens state legislators to attempt such a move. But this one has a twist — the legislation targets only companies that make diabetes drugs and insulin.Specifically, the bill requires drug makers to report pricing histories; disclose a slew of costs, such as research, manufacturing, and patient assistance; and notify state officials and insurers at least 90 days before prices are increased above the inflation rate for the preceding year.

Education & Academics

first_imgFor those moving to a new location, it’s important to know what educational options are available. This chapter outlines the public schools system in Bernalillo County, along with information about local libraries and higher education. There are private schools, charter schools and home schooling available to children in the county as well.To be enrolled in a New Mexico school, a child must be at least 5 years old by Sept. 1 of the school year. Those wishing to register their child in school should bring the following to the school office: a birth certificate or other proof of the child’s age, the child’s previous school records and immunizations records. Check with the school for additional requirements. For details on New Mexico’s minimum vaccine requirements for students in grades K-12, visit the New Mexico Department of Health’s website at http://nmhealth.org/about/phd/idb/imp/sreq.In 2010, New Mexico, along with 42 other states, the District of Columbia, Guam, American Samoa, the Northern Mariana Islands, the U.S. Virgin Islands and the Department of Defense Education Activity adopted Common Core State Standards that provide a consistent set of educational expectations for students, regardless of ZIP code. When a family moves, a student’s education is often disrupted because the student may be forced to repeat material or learn at a different level at the new school. With common standards across states, this disruption will be reduced — of particular interest to military families. At present, national Common Core State Standards exist only for English language arts and mathematics, with science and social studies in development, though New Mexico has state standards across the full curriculum. For more information, visit www.corestandards.org.CHARTER SCHOOLSCharter schools are public schools of choice that are tuition-free, serve all students and have open enrollment.

The Wednesday Wire – April 29th 2015

first_imgYesterday saw one of the UK’s largest freight transport, logistics and supply chain management events – Multimodal 2015 – kick off at the NEC in Birmingham.The beginning of the Multimodal exhibition coincided with news that the UK economy expanded by just 0.3 percent in the three months to the end of March 2015, compared with the previous quarter. This was half the growth rate in the last three months of 2014 and the country’s slowest rate of growth since the end of 2012.Industry experts have put the slip down to the UK’s manufacturing and production industries, which have been severely wounded by the oil price collapse and subsequent North Sea crisis. The growth rate of manufacturing in the UK has decelerated quite significantly over the past year.In the wake of the upcoming election, there have been some wobbles in the UK, but analysts have warned that the country’s economic recovery is by no means over. GDP increased at an annual rate of 2.4 percent in the first three months of the year, which is a solid figure and only a touch slower than the 2.5 percent forecast for this year.These issues will no doubt be under detailed discussion at the Multimodal exhibition this week, along with the country’s logistics and supply chain opportunities.

Appeal to be heard on dumping company’s license

first_imgThe neighbors asserted that septic-tank waste was mixed in with other waste to camouflage it. The material was pumice stone, used in washing denim, and had been stored on the site by another company, S & S Environmental Processing. Tests of the material determined it was not hazardous waste and did not contain fecal matter, Kelly wrote. Both Smith and Thompson and S&S Environmental have since had the material removed. [email protected] (661) 267-5743160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! LANCASTER – Lancaster is seeking to revoke the business license of a company embroiled in a controversy with neighbors over material that had been stored on its site. City officials had started an attempt in March to revoke the business license for Smith and Thompson Pumping Company, located on West Avenue L-9 near Division Street. The move was stayed pending an appeal that is scheduled to be heard tonight by the City Council. City officials said the business license was issued in 2002 for a transportation company. They said a transportation company would be allowed in areas zoned as light industrial. When Smith and Thompson applied for a new license in January because of a change in ownership, the description of the business was listed as “pumping and disposing of nonhazardous waste,” which is not permitted in light-industrial areas, said Brian Ludicke, the city’s director of community development. “They are a waste-disposal operation. The zoning does not allow that,” Ludicke said. “The city’s action is in response to the land use.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE11 theater productions to see in Southern California this week, Dec. 27-Jan. 2In a letter to the city regarding the appeal, an attorney for owner Dorothy Smith said the nature of the business is being misinterpreted. “STPC is not a waste-disposal facility,” attorney Michael Kelly wrote. “It operates for the purpose of transporting nonhazardous, nontoxic waste.” The company’s trucks are unloaded before returning to the site at the end of the day, Kelly wrote. “Smith and Thompson Pumping Co. may on occasion have to leave a tanker in the yard overnight due to unanticipated circumstances, such as early closings of a disposal site or mechanical problems with a tractor, but it does not allow accumulation of solid, liquid, sludge or biosolids in its yard area as much as is reasonably possible,” Kelly wrote. The site has come under review by agencies including the Los Angeles County Health Department and the California Environmental Protection Agency as the result of complaints from residents. Neighbors said in court papers that there have been fumes and dust from waste piles at the property as tall as 8 feet, burning the eyes of those who live nearby and making breathing difficult. last_img read more

The Arsenal striker couldn’t believe it, while Vertonghen’s team-mates celebrate However, while Tottenham fans were happy with the point – earned by Harry Kane’s earlier penalty – Arsenal players used Twitter to criticise referee Anthony Taylor.They feel Vertonghen broke the rules by encroaching into the box and as Aubameyang missed, the spot kick should have been retaken.

Minnesota Tax Commissioner’s Alternative Apportionment Authority Upheld

first_imgThe Minnesota Supreme Court held that the Commissioner of Revenue properly applied an alternative apportionment method to allocate a taxpayer’s corporate income to Minnesota. Additionally, the court addressed what the Commissioner must demonstrate in order to exercise this authority.Commissioner Challenges Statutory ApportionmentThe taxpayer, a nationally-chartered bank, created two LLCs. Each LLC had two members. Under this arrangement the financial-institution apportionment formula applied to the LLC members as financial institutions. However, the general apportionment applied to the LLCs. As a result, Minnesota law at the time did not require the LLCS to include certain interest income in calculating their income subject to tax.Under audit, the Commissioner found that the statutory apportionment formula distorted the taxpayer’s income. She applied an alternative apportionment method to account for the taxpayer’s interest income earned from Minnesota loans and the value of the loans. The tax court, relying on its own precedent in HMN Financial, Inc. v. Commissioner of Revenue, 782 N.W.2d 558 (Minn. 2010), ruled that the Commissioner’s use of an alternative appointment method was improper. .Prior Case Law on Alternative Apportionment AuthorityThe court noted that some of the facts of HMN Financial were similar to those in the case at hand. However, the Court distinguished the cases. In HMN Financial, the Commissioner relied on the alternative apportionment statute as general authority to challenge the results of the applied method. However, in the case at hand, the Commissioner relies on the statute  as specific authority to challenge the applied apportionment method used.Alternative Apportionment AuthorityIn order to use an alternative method, the Commissioner must show that:the statutorily required apportionment method does not fairly reflect the taxpayer’s net income from Minnesota sources; andthe alternative apportionment does fairly reflect that income.The Commissioner successfully showed the general apportionment formula did not reflect any of the taxpayer’s income from the LLCs’ Minnesota business activities. The Court also found that the Commissioner presented substantial evidence to show that the alternative apportionment method fairly reflected net income.Associated Bank, N.A. and Affiliates v.

Sassuolo: Squinzi’s wife dies

first_imgGiorgio Squinzi’s wife Adriana Spazzoli has died, less than two months after the Sassuolo President passed away. The 71-year-old’s condition had reportedly worsened following the loss of her husband and the Mapei supremo, who died at the age of 76 on October 3.

Ind A vs SL: Rohit Sharma, Manish Pandey tons sink toothless Lankans

first_imgRohit Sharma cracked a brilliant 111-ball 142 before getting run-out in the warm-up gameA fit-again Rohit Sharma and Manish Pandey slammed strokeful centuries as India A feasted on Sri Lanka’s mediocre attack before registering a comfortable 88-run victory in a warm-up match for the visitors ahead of their ODI series against India, here on Thursday.Playing his first match after recovering from a fractured finger and shoulder injury, Sharma cracked a brilliant 111-ball 142 before getting run out. Pandey stroked his way to an unbeaten 135 off 113 balls at the Brabourne Stadium.Invited to bat, India A scored runs at a brisk pace, with the openers – Sharma and Unmukt Chand – carting the bowlers all over the park and helping the team post 72 runs in the first 10 overs. The home team notched up a mammoth 382 for six and in reply, the Sri Lankans were restricted to 294 for nine.Sharma dominated proceedings initially before Chand, too, upped the ante. The former U-19 World Cup-winning captain continued with his rich vein of form having previously scored an unbeaten 79 and 101 against the West Indies earlier this month.The Delhi batsman struck eight fours and a six in his 39-ball 52 before being caught behind by Kumara Sangakkara off Lahiru Gamage. Sharma, who was on 36 when Chand departed, forged a 214- run partnership with Pandey. The duo remained aggressive as they sent the bowlers on a leather hunt.Sharma, playing after a two-month injury layoff, showed no signs of discomfort and took to the attack from the start. The 27- year old’s scintillating knock was laced with 18 fours and a six, and included some beautiful cover drives.advertisementThe Mumbai batsman fell short of his crease while trying to steal a second run when a direct hit from Lahiru Gamage found the target in the 41st over. The 25-year old Karnataka batsman, Pandey, however remained undeterred. His brilliant knock included 15 fours and a six, while skipper Manoj Tiwary chipped in with a cameo, scoring 36 with the help of two sixes and as many fours.After putting up a solid display, India A lost three quick wickets in the penultimate over, but it did not cause much worry to them as by then the batsmen had already dented the Lankan bowling attack.The island nation opted to give a chance to all their 15 members and utilised the services of as many as 10 players in the bowling department.The visitors replaced Sangakkara after 26 overs and Kusal Perera took his place behind the stumps. It was a bad day for the Lankan bowling outfit and Dhammika Prasad was the pick of the bowlers with figures of three for 57, while Gamage bagged had two for 41. Chasing a mammoth total, Sri Lanka suffered a jolt when they lost opener Kusal Perera (4) in the first over. The left-handed batsman was caught behind off Dhawal Kulkarni on the last ball of the over.India A struck again when leg spinner Karn Sharma trapped Dilshan leg before off the first ball of his spell. The 38-year old made just 14 off 24 balls, leaving the visitors struggling at 42 for two in 8.1 overs. Wicketkeeper batsman Sangakkara and Tharanga tried to rebuild the innings and forged a 69-run stand for the third wicket.Sangakkara, one of the most experienced players in the Sri Lankan side, made almost a run-a-ball 34 before being caught in the first slip off Parvez Rasool. His departure left Sri Lanka struggling at 111 for three.Tharanga, who had partners changing at the other end quite frequently, was the only one who took to the Indian attack. He carted the bowlers for 13 fours before perishing at mid wicket off Karn Sharma.They kept losing wickets at regular interval and lost more than half the side within 32 overs. Mahela Jayawardene made a 31-ball 33 comprising of three fours before being castled by Karn, which left the island nation at for 173 for six.Niroshan Dickwella and Ashan Priyanjan added 51 runs for the seventh wicket before Dickwella was bowled by Kulkarni. Seekuge Prasanna and Chatrunga De Silva played a few shots in the end to guide the team to a respectable total.The 27-year old Railways bowler scalped four wickets for 47 runs, while Jammu and Kashmir spinner Rasool and Dhawal Kulkarni picked up two wickets each.Brief Score: India A for in 50 overs (Rohit Sharma 142, Manish Pandey 135 not out; Dhammika Prasad 3 for 57, Lahiru Gamage 2 for 41) Sri Lanka (Upul Tharanga 76; Karn Sharma 4 for 47).last_img read more
