Photo: Simon Chambers[Anglican Journal] The Joint Assembly’s worship planning team was asked to come up with “a new and creative thing” for the gathering’s opening eucharist.They delivered. From beginning to end, it was no ordinary worship service.The liturgy opened with a series of video clips of congregations and individuals from across Canada, projected onto big screens throughout the plenary hall, offering the customary greeting: “The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all.”Then, during the opening hymn, a 12-foot-tall inukshuk was taken apart, its various parts reassembled to create an altar on which the eucharist was celebrated, a font used for a remembrance of baptism and an ambo from which the scripture lessons were read.The worship planning team’s co-chairs said they chose to incorporate an inukshuk, a traditional marker for travellers used in the Arctic, because they were looking for a distinctively Canadian symbol.“Somehow a big beaver in the room didn’t quite cut it,” said Lutheran worship co-chair Eric Dyck.Anglican worship co-chair Catherine Ascah said the inukshuk was a good fit because its shape has “a cross-like feel to it,” while also being something highly identifiable and marking off a particular place—in this case, a 35,000 square-foot convention floor she describes as an “airport hanger.”A scripture passage from Acts recounting the baptism of the Ethiopian eunuch by Philip was alternately read by a lector in French and shown in pre-recorded video clips projected onto the big screens.The reading was interspersed with a thanksgiving for baptism and a renewal of baptismal vows, capped by a “waterless asperges.” Worship assistants─trailing long, flowing streams of blue fabric─ran between the tables of delegates, invoking the sprinkling rite that often accompanies of remembrance of baptism.In her sermon ELCIC National Bishop Susan Johnson exhorted the delegates to take seriously their baptismal commitment to bear witness to God’s word in the world, and challenged them to begin here at the Joint Assembly.“As you make new friends and meet old ones, fight the temptation to talk about the weather, or the length of time it takes to get up the escalators, or any other kind of filler conversation,” Bishop Johnson preached. “Instead, take the risk of sharing something about your faith. How have you experienced God’s love for the world? What is the faith story that you can share?”Archbishop Fred Hiltz presided at communion, intoning a eucharistic prayer that was an original composition for the Joint Assembly and will be used again at the closing service. After the bread and wine were consecrated at the altar they were distributed to the dozens of tables where delegates served each other communion.The liturgy concluded with a hymn, but no blessing or dismissal, which Ascah said is deliberately intended to frame the entire Joint Assembly in prayer.“We’re still praying,” she said. “We’re still worshipping and we’re still praying, and the final benediction is going to come at the closing eucharist.

Cost cutting hits garda cars

first_img*Decommissioned vehicles may not be replacedFEARS are mounting in Limerick that garda patrol cars due to be decommissioned, might not be replaced, as has already happened in county Clare.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In recent months, garda services were cut for two communities in the county, with Doon and Shanagolden stations set to close, while the hours of others are being reduced under government cost saving measures in the public sector.It has now come to light that the government will not replace ‘marked’ cars that are decommissioned after they have clocked up a mileage limit of around 300,000 kilometres.An unconfirmed but significant number of garda cars in Limerick, are believed to be in the zone of the limit.It has emerged that eight decommissioned garda cars in Clare are not to be replaced. Advertisement WhatsApp NewsLocal NewsCost cutting hits garda carsBy admin – January 12, 2012 512 Print Email Of the 13 patrol cars left in Clare, nine are already near the limit.Limerick garda headquarters could not yet confirm the number of cars that were at, or approaching, the mileage limit, at the time of going to print.“This is a very important issue, especially for people in rural constituencies, where members can’t patrol on foot, as there is too much ground to cover,” said Limerick Deputy Niall Collins.Speaking to the Limerick Post, the TD said he “could not understand why the government will not allow gardaí to purchase new cars when money is there”.He explained that people in isolated areas are feeling increasingly vulnerable without a garda presence.“People are anxious and worried as recent crime statistics have shown an increase in burglaries in the county.“Its ludicrous that the gardaí won’t be able to pursue these criminals who are going house- to- house carrying out crimes, aided and abetted by their getaway vehicles.“It begs the question of what the gardaí will actually be doing in rural areas when they don’t have vehicles to get around in”.He called on the government and minister for justice to step up to the mark and place people’s security back at the top of the agenda.

The data team there goes on to report that, in the meantime, the pace of sales accelerated to the fastest rate on their record for the month of March—that further strained the housing inventory to about half of what it was one year ago.”It’s definitely a seller’s market right now, and homes are selling at a feverish pitch, further crimping this historically low inventory situation,” said Adam Contos, CEO of RE/MAX Holdings. “On average, homes that sold last month had been on the market just 38 days, nearly three weeks less than the March average of 59 days from the past four years.”Contos continued: “New listings are coming onto the market, but because houses are selling so fast, the inventory total can’t keep pace. The result is a constantly thinner range of options for buyers to consider. In many markets, buyers have to race to make an offer—often over listing price—to get the house they want, and that competition creates an attractive environment for sellers. It’s tricky on both sides of the equation ….”Just as other researchers have said, the team at RE/MAX remarked that their year-to-year- comparisons are skewed by pandemic-spurred restrictions during March 2020. Nonetheless, they say, housing activity in the report’s 53 markets nationwide last month hit several notable milestones:The median sales price of $303,000 rose 4.5% above the previous report record of $290,050 in February and was 14.3% higher year over year.Inventory dropped to a new report low for the ninth consecutive month and was 45.2% lower year over year.Average “months supply of inventory” set a report record of 1.1, eclipsing the previous low of 1.6 months in February. The figure for March 2020 was 3.2 months of available supply.And the market missed another milestone by only a hair: The average days on the market of 38 was 16 days less than March 2020 and just two days more than the report record of 36 set last November.Indeed, March was only the fifth month in report history with average days on the market running sub 40.”All five times have occurred in the past seven months,” the authors of the report said.

Deduction Under Section 80-IA Income Tax Act Not Restricted To ‘Business Income’ Only: Supreme Court

first_imgTop StoriesDeduction Under Section 80-IA Income Tax Act Not Restricted To ‘Business Income’ Only: Supreme Court LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK28 April 2021 11:21 PMShare This – xThe Supreme Court held that the scope of sub-section (5) of Section 80- IA of the Act is limited to determination of quantum of deduction under sub-section (1) of Section 80-IA of the Act by treating ‘eligible business’ as the ‘only source of income’. This provision cannot be pressed into service for reading a limitation of the deduction under sub-section (1) only to ‘business income’, the bench comprising Justices L. Nageswara Rao and Vineet Saran observed.Advertisement In this case, the Assessing Officer restricted the eligible deduction under Section 80-IA of the Income Tax Act to the extent of ‘business income’ only. The Commissioner of Income-Tax (Appeal)-I partly allowed the Appeal filed by the Assessee and reversed the order of the Assessing Officer on the issue of the extent of deduction under Section 80-IA of the Act. The Income Tax Appellate Tribunal upheld the decision of the Appellate Authority on the issue of deduction under Section 80-IA. The High Court refused to interfere with the Tribunal’s order as far as the issue on deduction under Section 80-IA is concerned. Advertisement Before the Apex Court in appeal, the Revenue contended that the Assessing Officer was right in holding that the deduction under Section 80-IA of the Act should be restricted to ‘business income’ only. On behalf of Assessees, it was contended that there is no indication in sub-section (5) of Section 80-IA that the deduction under sub-section (1) is restricted to ‘business income’ only.The court observed that the essential ingredients of Section 80-IA (1) of the Act are: a) the ‘gross total income’ of an assessee should include profits and gains; b) those profits and gains are derived by an undertaking or an enterprise from a business referred to in subsection (4); c) the assessee is entitled for deduction of an amount equal to 100% of the profits and gains derived from such business for 10 consecutive assessment years; and d) in computing the ‘total income’ of the Assessee, such deduction shall be allowed.Advertisement Advertisement “The import of Section 80-IA is that the ‘total income’ of an assessee is computed by taking into account the allowable deduction of the profits and gains derived from the ‘eligible business’. With respect to the facts of this Appeal, there is no dispute that the deduction quantified under Section 80-IA is Rs.492,78,60,973/-. To make it clear, the said amount represents the net profit made by the Assessee from the ‘eligible business’ covered under sub-section (4), i.e., from the Assessee’s business unit involved in generation of power. The claim of the Assessee is that in computing its ‘total income’, deductions available to it have to be set-off against the ‘gross total income’, while the Revenue contends that it is only the ‘business income’ which has to be taken into account for the purpose of setting-off the deductions under Sections 80-IA and 80-IB of the Act. To illustrate, the ‘gross total income’ of the Assessee for the assessment year 2002-03 is less than the quantum of deduction determined under Section 80-IA of the Act. The Assessee contends that income from all other heads including ‘income from other sources’, in addition to ‘business income’, have to be taken into account for the purpose of allowing the deductions available to the Assessee, subject to the ceiling of ‘gross total income’. The Appellate Authority was of the view that there is no limitation on deduction admissible under Section 80-IA of the Act to income under the head ‘business’ only, with which we agree.”, the court said.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement While dismissing the appeal, the bench observed thus:”We hold that the scope of sub-section (5) of Section 80- IA of the Act is limited to determination of quantum of deduction under sub-section (1) of Section 80-IA of the Act by treating ‘eligible business’ as the ‘only source of income’. Sub-section (5) cannot be pressed into service for reading a limitation of the deduction under sub-section (1) only to ‘business income’.”Case: Commissioner of Income Tax-I Vs. Reliance Energy Ltd.

He makes a trip to the bank each spring to make arrangements for his ‘draw.” Then, he starts hoping and praying that Mother Nature will be kind to him so his crops will make.Kervin understands the plight of the farmers. He knows how almost totally dependent on the weather farmers are and admires their willingness to roll the dice, year and year.And, too, in a way, Kervin “grew up” on the farm.“I started working for Mr. Harold Lee on the farm when I was in the seventh grade and worked with him until I graduated from college,” he said. “I hoed peanuts, drove the tractor and fed the cows. We’d go to work just after sunup and work until dark. The farm was 200 acres that were as flat as a tabletop. You could hardly make it from one end of the row to the other with a hoe. So, I know what it’s like to be so thirsty that your tongue sticks to the roof of your mouth.” Kervin in president of Troy Bank & Trust and Ward is a Pike County row-crop farmer.Ward switched places with Kervin Wednesday morning at the TB&T main office and quickly settled back in the president’s chair.“I’ve never been on this side of the desk before,” Ward said with a smile. “I’ve always worked for the banker and now he’s working for me.” The Farm-City Committee didn’t have to twist Jeff Kervin’s arm or Kevin Ward’s to get them to agree to participate in the 2011 Pike County Chamber of Commerce’s Farm-City Swap.“Kevin and I just agreed to split the $20,000 prize money for being selected,” Kervin said laughing.Kervin and Ward were eager to participate in the annual Farm-City Swap because each has a sincere appreciation for the other’s vocation. Ward nodded in agreement.“What you need to farm is a weak mind and a strong back,” he said, laughing. “Technology has taken some of the backbreaking work out of farming. We’ve got chemicals and mechanical pickers that do the work that hoes and strong backs used to do but farming is still a hard row to hoe.”Kervin said that technology has made most of the bank’s paper and pencil record keeping a thing of the past.But even with on-line banking, TB&T still gets about 20,000 automated calls a month and so many people-to-people calls that the bank doesn’t even keep count.“I come in around 7:15 to answer emails and voice mails and deal with bad checks and we have plenty of those,” Kervin said. “But loans are down. We used to have about 400 loan requests a month. Now, it’s about 200. And farm loans are really down. Most of our farm loans now are for poultry and cattle.”Ward said he considered getting into the chicken business several years ago, and kind of wishes that he had “back them.”“Now, it’s just too expensive,” he said. “A chicken house costs about a quarter million dollars.”Kervin said people in both the urban and rural areas are not borrowing money.“They want to get out of debt,” he said. “People are more conservative. They are putting their hands on top of their money and don’t let it get away from them.”Ward said that a farmer’s best friend is the banker because borrowing money is a way of life for a farmer. A loan is a farmer’s bread and butter.“We have to have a draw to operate,” he said. “This year, I farmed 73 acres of peanuts and that was down from 200 or more. I had 160 acres of cotton and that was up because the record market prices drew me into it. The peanuts were good for this year and the cotton made all right but the corn crop failed. That’s the way it goes.”For the farmer, the season begins at the bank. Kervin understands that.“Even with the technology available to banks today, it all reverts back to the tried and true,” Kervin said. “Banking is a people business. You have to know your customers and know what they are doing.”Kervin and Ward said that doing banking with those you know and trust “on both sides of the table” makes the annual spring trip to the bank less stressful.For Ward, being responsible for a vault filled with money would be more stress that he could stand. And, short time later, Kervin found that being behind the wheel of a six-row cotton picker was more stress than he could handle.The farmer and the banker “toured” a Pike County cotton field and Kervin got to do something he had never done before – pick cotton by hand.Picking a few bolls of cotton by hand was fun but, as Kervin looked down that 1,000-foot row, he was certain that the fun would stop about 10 feet down the row. So, he opted to climb aboard the mechanical picker.“Picking cotton is hard work either way,” Kervin said. “It’s a hard, dusty job. The hours are long and farming is a thankless job. But I like being out in nature. It’s peaceful and tranquil. Sometimes it gets claustrophobic in my office but I don’t think I would miss the dust and dirt and, when it’s hot or cold or rainy, I think I would rather be in a climate-controlled environment. I appreciate all that our farmers do. They are the backbone of this nation.Ward expressed appreciation for the “contributions” that bankers make to the agricultural community. But, after spending a morning at the bank, he had no doubts that farm living is the life for him.“I don’t have to deal with people. I’m isolated out there in the field,” he said. “I like doing things on my own and I sure would hate to have to tell someone they didn’t get a loan. But I’ve always appreciated the bankers. We work hand-in-hand and that’s what it takes to keep our country go and growing.”And that is the reason behind Farm-City Week and the Farm-City Swap — to reinforce the partnership between the farm and city communities and as a reminder that “you can’t have one without the other.” Email the author By The Penny Hoarder Book Nook to reopen Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson You Might Like Giving thanks focus of Factor The Rev.

Timescales for radiation belt electron acceleration and loss due to resonant wave-particle interactions: 2. Evaluation for VLF chorus, ELF hiss, and electromagnetic ion cyclotron waves

first_imgOuter zone radiation belt electrons can undergo gyroresonant interaction with various magnetospheric wave modes including whistler-mode chorus outside the plasmasphere and both whistler-mode hiss and electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves inside the plasmasphere. To evaluate timescales for electron momentum diffusion and pitch angle diffusion, we utilize bounce-averaged quasi-linear diffusion coefficients for field-aligned waves with a Gaussian frequency spectrum in a dipole magnetic field. Timescales for momentum diffusion of MeV electrons due to VLF chorus can be less than a day in the outer radiation belt. Equatorial chorus waves (∣λ W ∣ 15 deg) are also present. Our calculations confirm that chorus diffusion is a viable mechanism for generating relativistic (MeV) electrons in the outer zone during the recovery phase of a storm or during periods of prolonged substorm activity when chorus amplitudes are enhanced. Radiation belt electrons are subject to precipitation loss to the atmosphere due to resonant pitch angle scattering by plasma waves. The electron precipitation loss timescale due to scattering by each of the wave modes, chorus, hiss, and EMIC waves, can be 1 day or less. These wave modes can separately, or in combination, contribute significantly to the depletion of relativistic (MeV) electrons from the outer zone over the course of a magnetic storm. Efficient pitch angle scattering by whistler-mode chorus or hiss typically requires high latitude waves (∣λ W ∣ > 30 deg). Timescales for electron acceleration and loss generally depend on the spectral properties of the waves, as well as the background electron number density and magnetic field. Loss timescales due to EMIC wave scattering also depend on the ion (H+, He+, O+) composition of the plasma. Complete models of radiation belt electron transport, acceleration and loss should include, in addition to radial (cross-L) diffusion, resonant diffusion due to gyroresonance with VLF chorus, plasmaspheric hiss, and EMIC waves. Comprehensive observational data on the spectral properties of these waves are required as a function of spatial location (L, MLT, MLAT) and magnetic activity.last_img read more
