Krakowski also teased the second season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, saying “it’s even better than season one.” It drops on April 15, but while you wait, go ahead and catch Krakowski, alongside Laura Benanti, Zachary Levi and Gavin Creel at Studio 54.

Agricultural Awareness Day

first_imgOn Tuesday, Oct. 24, approximately 900 fourth-graders from Georgia’s Tift and Cook counties will convene on the University of Georgia Tifton campus for this fall’s Agricultural and Environmental Awareness Day.Students will move between stations set up at the event, which will run from 9 a.m. until noon.Since 2001, the campus has held an event in the spring during which elementary school students learn to plant crops. The students return in the fall to see those crops harvested. Presentations and hands-on demonstrations at these events provide students with modern agricultural knowledge.Research technician Benjie Baldree established these Agricultural and Environmental Awareness Days. He handed the reins over to Katie Wilson, an administrative associate in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences Department of Animal and Dairy Science, three years ago.“Benjie saw the love I have for this industry when I was a presenter in high school and college,” Wilson said. “My favorite part is seeing the kids light up when you tell them that their clothes are made of cotton or that milk comes from cows.”At the events, students also learn about the process of turning plants into plastic and other recyclable materials.“We teach them how to improve the environment,” Wilson said.They also learn the importance of simple machines in agriculture. Every year there’s an “elephant,” or barrels covered in a gray tarp, that students must figure out how to move as part of a contest. Some students attempt to move the elephant through strength, while others use a simple machine.Most of the event’s presenters are UGA staff and faculty members, including Lola Sexton, an agricultural research assistant in the college’s Department of Crop and Soil Sciences. She uses a microgin to demonstrate the process of ginning cotton and teaches students about the plant’s uses in certain products, such as jeans and money. Other presenters include U.S. Department of Agriculture and Georgia Forestry Commission representatives.Wilson hopes students enjoy their experience and gain a knowledge of and love for agriculture.“We want to teach them that there are many opportunities in agriculture,” Wilson said.Julie Jernigan is an intern at UGA-Tifton.last_img read more

He pleaded not guilty Saturday to a charge of computer trespass.“This egregious violation of the personal privacy of certain students is of grave concern to us,” James Nolan, superintendent of the school district, said in a statement. “The recent news leaves us with very mixed emotions.”Police said the 17-year-old, who was a Sachem North student at the beginning of the 2013-14 school year, posted information from the Sachem school district’s records to and district alerted authorities when they discovered the illegal download. Nolan said the FBI is also involved in the investigation and New York State Attorney General has been notified.“The district …is in the process of making direct notifications to any individual who it knows or reasonably believes was subjected to this breach of security and exposure of private information,” Nolan added.He said a district analysis found that its data systems were not breached from the outside.Posted to the message board earlier this month were a list of 15,000 names and student IDs of students from the early 2000s as well as another list of 12,000 names and student ID numbers that included 900 students not included in the first list.It also included records of 360 students who graduated from Sachem High School East in 2008 and a report regarding 130 students who attended Sachem High School North who were receiving instructional services in an alternative setting in the 2010-2011 school year, the district said.Calicchio was released without bail and is due back in court Dec. 9.Computer Crimes detectives are continuing the investigation and ask anyone with knowledge of this incident to contact them at 631-852-6572.last_img read more

Tourism Minister proposes further tax cuts, additional loans for hard-hit industry

first_imgForeign visitor arrivals to the country plunged by 86.9 percent year-on-year (yoy) in May to 163,646, according to Statistics Indonesia (BPS) data. From January to May, Indonesia recorded just 2.9 million foreign tourist visits, a 53.56 percent drop from the same period last year.In total, the government has allocated Rp 695.2 trillion as part of its COVID-19 response. This includes Rp 120.61 trillion allocated by the government to provide tax relief for individuals and businesses affected by the pandemic.Meanwhile, in addition to the financial stimulus, the government is also attempting to kickstart the industry by instructing government institutions and agencies to resume their business trips and set up meetings in tourist destinations.The Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Ministry issued a letter on July 6 instructing agencies and ministries under its leadership to spend their remaining business trip budget of Rp 4.1 trillion in eight designated tourist destinations starting from July to November.The designated destinations are Banyuwangi, East Java; Bali; Borobudur Temple in Central Java; Toba Lake in North Sumatra; Riau Islands; Labuan Bajo in East Nusa Tenggara; Likupang in North Sulawesi; and Mandalika in West Nusa Tenggara.“The business trips could help spur national economic growth and have a positive impact on the regions relying on tourism,” the letter reads.In the same event, Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister Luhut Pandjaitan encouraged stakeholders to boost domestic tourism in the third quarter of the year.“Let’s work together to increase the number of domestic tourists by 70 percent in the third quarter,” he said.He acknowledged that so far, more than 180,000 workers in the tourist sector had been affected by the pandemic, while an estimated 2,000 hotels have stopped operating.PHRI chairman Hariyadi Sukamdani previously told lawmakers during a hearing on July 14 that the government’s tax incentives were not sufficient to stop the bleeding.“Banks will need to extend the debt-restructuring program and they will need to provide working capital loans” to rescue businesses in the tourist sector, he said.Read also: Pandemic erases $5.9b of Indonesia’s tourism revenue as businesses seek helpTopics : The minister also proposed to increase the limit for working capital loans from state-owned banks for tourism businesses from the current cap of Rp 10 billion (US$684,000), adding that the plan was being discussed with the Finance Ministry and the Association of State-Owned Banks (Himbara).The government has guaranteed working capital loans worth Rp 100 trillion for micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs) that cover loans with a ceiling of Rp 10 billion and a tenor of three years, as part of the COVID-19 relief package, aside from loan restructuring.So far, the government’s debt-restructuring program for pandemic-hit firms has led to Rp 124 trillion of restructured bank loans for tourism firms, while the restructured loans from the lending and multifinance sector amount to Rp 3.1 trillion, according to Wishnutama.Indonesia’s tourist sector has seen its revenue dry up amid the COVID-19 pandemic, as fears of the disease and international border closures brought the industry into a screeching halt. According to Indonesian Hotel and Restaurant Association (PHRI) data, the pandemic had wiped out an estimated Rp 85 trillion of Indonesia’s tourism revenue as of mid-July. Tourism and Creative Economy Minister Wishnutama Kusubandio has proposed a full exemption from corporate income tax for all firms in the tourist and creative economy sectors, as well as the provision of additional working capital loans, to aid the hard-hit industry during the global health crisis.Wishnutama said he was currently in talks with Finance Minister Sri Mulyani Indrawati regarding the proposal. The tourist sector is currently eligible for a 30 percent discount on corporate income tax to cushion the COVID-19 pandemic impact.“We have proposed an additional tax cut of PPh Article 25 [corporate income tax] from the previous 30 percent to 100 percent. However, it is still under negotiation with the Finance Minister,” he said in a discussion held at the Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Ministry on Wednesday.last_img read more
