first_imgTo raise less than $3 billion in a decade —less than 0.005 percent of projected federal spending of $53 trillion — Republicans would blur important distinctions and abandon their defining mission.Private foundations, which are generally run by small coteries, pay a “supervisory tax” on investment income to defray the cost of IRS oversight to guarantee that their resources are used for charitable purposes.In 1984, however, Congress created a new entity, an “operating foundation.” Such organizations — e.g., often museums or libraries — are exempt from the tax on investment earnings because they apply their assets directly to their charitable activities rather than making grants to other organizations, as do foundations that therefore must pay the supervisory tax.Most university endowments are compounds of thousands of individual funds that often are restricted to particular uses, all of which further the institutions’ educational purposes.Hence these endowments are akin to the untaxed “operating foundations.”Yet the Republicans, without public deliberations, and without offering reasons, would arbitrarily make university endowments uniquely subject to a tax not applied to similar entities.Are Republicans aware, for example, that Princeton’s endowment earnings fund more than half its annual budget, and will support expansion of the student body? Government having long ago slipped the leash of restraint, the public sector’s sprawl threatens to enfeeble the private institutions of civil society that mediate between the individual and the state and that leaven society with energy and creativity that government cannot supply.Time was, conservatism’s central argument for limiting government was to defend these institutions from being starved of resources and functions by government.Abandonment of this argument is apparent in the vandalism that Republicans are mounting against universities’ endowments.This raid against little platoons of independent excellence would be unsurprising were it proposed by progressives, who are ever eager to extend government’s reach and to break private institutions to the state’s saddle.Coming from Republicans, it is acutely discouraging.George Will is a nationally syndicated columnist with The Washington Post who writes from a conservative perspective. He is a former Princeton trustee. Great universities are great because philanthropic generations have borne the cost of sustaining private institutions that seed the nation with excellence.Donors have done this in the expectation that earnings accruing from their investments will be devoted solely to educational purposes, in perpetuity.This expectation will disappear, and the generosity that it has sustained will diminish, if Republicans siphon away a portion of endowments’ earnings in order to fund the federal government’s general operations.Its appetite whetted by 1.4 percent, the political class will not stop there.Once the understanding that until now has protected endowments is shredded, there will be no limiting principle to constrain governments — those of the states, too —  in their unsleeping search for revenues to expand their power.Public appetites are limitless, as is the political class’s desire to satisfy them.Hence there is a perennial danger that democracy will degenerate into looting — scrounging for resources, such as universities’ endowments, that are part of society’s seed corn for prosperous tomorrows. Categories: Editorial, OpinionWASHINGTON — Such is the federal government’s sprawl, and its power to establish new governing precedents, mere Washington twitches can jeopardize venerable principles and institutions.This is illustrated by a seemingly small but actually momentous provision of the Republicans’ tax bill — a 1.4 percent excise tax on the endowment earnings of approximately 70 colleges and universities with the largest per student endowments.center_img It also enables “need-blind” admissions: More than 60 percent of undergraduates receive financial assistance; those from families with incomes below $65,000 pay no tuition, room or board; those from families with incomes below $160,000 pay no tuition. No loans are required.Ph.D. candidates receive tuition and a stipend for living costs.Furthermore, the endowment has funded a significant increase in students from low-income families: Princeton has recently tripled to 22 percent the portion of freshmen from families with the most substantial financial needs.The idea that Princeton is largely populated by children of alumni is a canard slain by this fact: Such “legacies” are only 13 percent of this year’s freshman class.For eight centuries, surviving thickets of ecclesiastical and political interferences, the world’s great research universities have enabled the liberal arts to flourish, the sciences to advance, and innovation to propel economic betterment.Increasingly, they foster upward mobility that fulfils democratic aspirations and combats the stagnation of elites.It is astonishingly shortsighted to jeopardize all this, and it is unseemly to do so in a scramble for resources to make a tax bill conform to the transitory arithmetic of a budget process that is a labyrinth of trickery.

Hoy estamos dando pequeños pasos para lograr un grado de normalidad. Estamos permitiendo la recogida desde la acera de los pedidos realizados por teléfono a las tiendas de la PLCB. Se permitirán las ventas de automóviles realizadas en línea. El 8 de mayo, se reanudará la construcción en todo el estado.“Quiero advertir que no reanudaremos las operaciones de la manera en que se realizaban en febrero. Vamos a continuar tomando precauciones que limitan nuestro contacto físico con los demás, y realizaremos un control minucioso para ver si se puede hacer de manera segura”.Estos avances controlados se observarán detenidamente en los próximos días y semanas con el fin de garantizar que no produzcan un aumento rápido en los casos de COVID-19, en cuyo caso el Gobernador usará su autoridad conforme a la declaración de desastre de emergencia para reanudar las restricciones y así proteger la salud pública y la seguridad.Las ventas de vehículos podrán realizarse en líneaMás adelante en el día de hoy, el Gobernador firmará el Proyecto de ley 841 del Senado que aprueba que los notarios públicos habilitados de Pennsylvania realicen certificaciones notariales de manera remota en línea, que permitirá que los concesionarios de automóviles puedan realizar ventas limitadas de automóviles y operaciones de arrendamiento mediante ventas en línea, ya que se exige un notario para completar la transacción.

La PLCB prevé ampliar el servicio en más sitios en el futuro. El sitio de Internet de la PLCB, FineWineAndGoodSpirits.com, también está aumentando la capacidad de pedidos.Las ventas con retiro desde la acera en Fine Wine & Good Spirits Shoppes servirán como guía para determinar si ciertas otras empresas que no son de soporte vital pueden reanudar el funcionamiento limitado a través de la recogida en la acera, que actualmente solo se permite para las empresas que ofrecen alimentos y productos farmacéuticos.La Administración supervisará la implementación de la recogida en la acera, que incluye la seguridad de la cadena de suministro, para determinar si es posible realizar una recogida más amplia en la acera de manera segura y eficaz para proporcionar bienes y servicios, al tiempo que limita la cantidad de contacto de persona a persona, no solo en los puntos de venta sino a lo largo de la cadena de suministro.Para obtener la información más actualizada sobre la COVID-19, los residentes de Pennsylvania deben visitar https://www.pa.gov/guides/responding-to-covid-19/.Ver esta página en inglés.center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

first_img Rugby league star offloads luxury house Ten suburbs where you might find a bargain The property is surrounded by multimillion-dollar homes. Auction day at 34 Munro Street, Auchenflower, Qld 4066. Picture: SOPHIE FOSTEREleven families registered to bid and two offers were made beforehand to try and get it off the market but a rare inner-city renovator went under the hammer regardless, smashing its reserve by $100k.About 60 people crowded the driveway of 34 Munro Street, Auchenflower — a property that fronts three streets including two lanes — just 200m from Milton Road to see 48 bids cast for the pre-war home which eventually sold for $780,000. MORE: Would you buy six houses at once? People in the neighbourhood turned out to see what price it would fetch. Picture: SOPHIE FOSTERAuctioneer Paul Moore Raine & Horne kicked off the action, urging buyers to “bid with confidence”, with the property to be settled within 30 days of the auction.“The family has lived here since the 1950s, let’s hope someone can take it,” he said, as bidding opened at $400,000.It jumped by $100,000 immediately to $500,000, then saw two $25,000 increases to $550,000 before rising in $10,000 amounts until it hit $590,000. Twenty-four bids were made before the property was declared on the market, by which stage it had reached $730,000. It then rose to $735,000 as new bidders jumped into the fray. The strategy of the person who eventually won the auction then changed to simply bidding $1,000 more than what was on the table, so he offer $736,000, and then when a counter made of $740,000, went to $741,000, and continued in that vein all the way through to $780,000.More from newsNoosa’s best beachfront penthouse is about to hit the market12 hours agoNoosa unit prices hit new record high as region booms: REIQ12 hours agoThe home was untouched by renovation with many original features.center_img The property sits at an intersection of three streets.

This is one of the rare ones. There are not a lot like this one still around, completely untouched.

He was in Monaco and he went to Juventus, we lost him by an inch,” Mourinho told talkSPORT. Jose Mourinho has revealed he and Sir Bobby Robson came close to bringing Thierry Henry to Barcelona early in his career. Press Associationcenter_img “After that he was not on my radar because it was never a possibility to come to my teams. Could you imagine in that moment leaving Arsenal to come to Chelsea? I wouldn’t imagine that. “He’s the kind of player that you need forever, especially in the Premier League where he was more than any other place. “He was okay in Barcelona and the (France) national team, but the real Thierry Henry, the player that we are all going to miss forever, is the one that made unbelievable seasons and incredible history in the Premier League.” Mourinho is not intending to delve into the transfer market next month, but feared he might have to when Kurt Zouma was injured in Tuesday night’s Capital One Cup quarter-final win at Derby. “When I saw Zouma I was scared,” said Mourinho, who revealed the France defender is now fine. “We can’t lose players for a long period of time. “Happily for us and for the kid, no. We are a short squad, but a squad of good players. “Our project is to start and to finish the season with these players. Nobody to leave, nobody to come.” last_img read more
