Budget helps with Gift Aid and legacies

first_img Tagged with: Finance Gift Aid Law / policy legacies In today’s Budget speech the Government announced a number of significant changes to Gift Aid and the taxation of donations to encourage philanthropy and reduce the burden on claiming Gift Aid, especially for smaller charities.These include:1. The rate of inheritance tax on estates leaving more than 10% to charity will be reduced from 40% to 36%.2. The Gift Aid benefit limited will be increased from April 2011 from £500 to £2500 to allow for more generous gifts to be given to donors in thanks for their donations.3. A new online system will be put in place to allow online filing of Gift Aid claims.4. A small donations scheme will be introduced that will allow charities to claim Gift Aid on up to £5000 of small donations per year without the need for any information to be collected from the donor. This will effectively create a match giving scheme at Gift Aid levels for cash donations at events or through street or door to door collecting for smaller charities.

SETI Researchers Affirm Planetary Privilege Criteria

first_imgIn the weekly SETI Thursday column on Space.com, Douglas Vakoch corroborated two claims made about the habitability of planets in the film The Privileged Planet (shown at the Smithsonian last night – see 06/09/2005 story): namely, (1) smaller stars have smaller habitable zones or “Goldilocks” zones where life can exist, and (2) planets within the habitable zone of a small star are closer in, tending to tidally lock one face toward the star – reducing the chance for habitability.  They admitted even more, that such conditions (if an atmosphere existed) would “whip up enormous wind velocities.”  They balanced that bad news with hopes that such worlds might have enough greenhouse effect to moderate the winds.  Since the discovery of Gliese 876, the smallest extrasolar planet so far, astrobiologists and SETI researchers are taking a second look at smaller M-class stars as homes for habitable planets.  None of the ones surveyed so far has a Jupiter-class planet, so the thinking is that most planets might be small rocky worlds around small, warm stars.How much hoc can an ad hoc hawk for an ad hoc post hoc post?  An M-class star needs a Jupiter for its comet shield, remember?  And is intelligent life going to thrive on the dark side of a tidally locked world in time to build a flashlight, let alone a radio telescope?  Or is it going to bake in its sun forever on the lit side and never see the stars, dreaming of who else is out there?  Maybe there is a thin great circle on its twilight zone suitable for life.  Don’t count on a booming economy, though.    Don’t expect sitcoms or even kid fare on the M channel.  If Goldilocks had to broadcast from such a world she would move to a nicer zone.  Like the film suggests, that leaves out 90% of the market.(Visited 7 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

World Cup 2019: Nicholas Pooran 118 in vain as Sri Lanka scrape past West Indies in thriller

first_imgNicholas Pooran’s 118 went in vain as Sri Lanka defeated West Indies by 23 runs in a thriller at Riverside Ground on Sunday in a World Cup game that serves only an academic purpose.Had West Indies been successful in chasing down 339, it would have been the highest ever chase in World Cup history.Nicholas Pooran proved to be the biggest hurdle to Sri Lanka’s victory as he brought down the run-chase in sight with his century but Sri Lanka found their unlikely hero in Angelo Mathews, who bowled his first ball since December 2017, to produce a moment of magic and dimiss a dangerous looking Nicholas Pooran for 118.For most part of the game, a win for West Indies looked in sight as Nicholas Pooran and Fabian Allen kept the run-chase alive with their 83-stand but another mix-up in the middle forced Allen to leave the ground for 51.Defending the Sri Lankan total, Lasith Malinga, who has also been pick of the bowlers, got Sri Lanka their first breakthrough by removing West Indies opener Sunil Ambris (5) to get his 53rd World Cup wicket. Malinga struck again to get rid of Shai Hope (5) to leave West Indies reeling at 22.2 in 4.6 overs.West Indies had their hopes rested on their big-hitter Chris Gayle after losing two quick wickets. Gayle was dropped in the 7th over of the second innings when he tried to dug out a Malinga yorker while Kusal Mendis dropped a sitter to give a lifeline to Shirmon Hetmyer.However, the two batsmen could not capitalize on their gifted chances. Kasun Rajitha picked Chirs Gayle for 35 whereas, Hetmyer scored 37 balls before getting run out by a direct hit from Dhananjaya de Silva.advertisementSkipper Jason Holder had to depart when he mistimed his lofted shot to hand the balls to Jeevan Mendis at the mid-on while Carlos Braithwate was run out for 8.Earlier, put in to bat, Avishka Fernando’s maiden hundred in a solid batting display powered Sri Lanka to an imposing 338.Sri Lanka’s top order fired in unison with Fernando hitting a 103-ball 104, the first century for the Island nation in this world cup. His innings was studded with nine fours and two sixes.Opener Kusal Perera sent the ball eight times across the fence on the way to a 51-ball 64.Fernando played the role of sheet anchor, stitching 85 runs with Kushal Mendis and then sharing 58 and 67 with Angelo Mathews (26) and Lahiru Thirimanne (45 off 33), respectively, as Sri Lanka went beyond 250 for the first time in the tournament.With both teams already out of contention for a semifinal spot, Sri Lanka played with freedom as openers Karunaratne and Kusal Perera amassed 91 runs for no loss in 15 overs.After skipper Jason Holder removed his West Indies counterpart Dimuth Karunaratne (32), Kushal Perera too was back after getting run out.Kushal Mendis and Fernando then took Sri Lanka close to 200 before a remarkable caught-and-bowl effort by left-arm spinner Fabian Allen, in the 32nd over, ended the former’s stay.Mathews came up with an enterprising 20-ball 26 before a perfect yorker by Holder sent him back in the 40th over.Fernando and Thirimanne then joined hands to help Sri Lanka cross the 300-mark.Fernando completed his hundred in the 48th over with a couple of runs off Carlos Brathwaite but soon holed out to Allen off Cottrell’s bowling.Also Read | Surprised that there are questions on Dhoni’s batting everyday: Sanjay BangarAlso Read | MS Dhoni, Kedar Jadhav were trying to hit but pitch got pretty slow: Rohit SharmaAlso Seelast_img read more

In the news today August 9

first_imgFour stories in the news for Friday, August 9———COMMUNITY SEARCHES FOR ANSWERS AFTER MANHUNT ENDSThe residents of Gillam, Manitoba are grappling with questions about how a massive manhunt for two murder suspects from B.C. ended in the unforgiving terrain surrounding their community. The bodies of the suspects were discovered Wednesday morning in dense brush near the shoreline of the Nelson River, within a kilometre from where several items linked to the two young men were found last week. Autopsies are being conducted in Winnipeg to confirm the remains are those of Kam McLeod, 19, and Bryer Schmegelsky, 18, from Port Alberni, B.C. The teens were suspects in the killings of  three people in northern B.C. last month.———RETIRED MOUNTIE SAYS ANSWERS COULD COME IN HOMICIDESA former RCMP assistant commissioner says investigators should be able to provide some answers about three homicides in northern B. C. even though the two suspects in the case are believed to be dead. The manhunt for Kam McLeod and Bryer Schmegelsky ended Wednesday when two bodies were found in dense brush in northern Manitoba. Mounties have said it could be difficult to determine a motive if the suspects can’t be interviewed. Peter German, who retired from the RCMP in 2012, agrees it will be hard, but says there is already some key evidence available that speaks to motive. German says at least one of the suspects seemed to be highly influenced by violent video games.———MUNK LEADERS’ DEBATE PROPOSED FOR OCT. 1A proposed leaders’ debate on foreign policy already has one confirmed participant, with Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer quickly accepting an invitation to join in the Munk Debates event scheduled for Oct. 1. The Munk Debates, which organizes several events on different issues each year,  has announced its plans for a federal election debate involving the leaders of the Liberals, the Conservatives, the NDP and the Green Party. The group says the event will go ahead once all four party leaders confirm their attendance, with a Sept. 24 deadline for replies.———INUK WOMAN BIKES ACROSS CANADA RAISING SUICIDE AWARENESSHannah Tooktoo, an Inuk mother from Nunavik, Que., got off her bike Thursday, 55 days after pedalling across Canada to raise awareness about the suicides that are ravaging her community. Tooktoo, 24, started her journey in Victoria without knowing if she’d be able to finish. Eight weeks later, she arrived in Montreal’s downtown Cabot Square square to cheers and applause from supporters. “It has been really good for me — for my body, for my soul,” said the visual arts student from Montreal’s Dawson College. She called her tour, “Anirnimi Kipisina,” which means “Do not cut your life short ” in Inuktitut.  Tooktoo has so far raised $22,531 from online donors.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer takes part in a coffee & conversation event with the Sydney, N.S. Chamber of Commerce.— Statistics Canada to release its labour force survey for July.— Health Canada officials provide an update on steps toward national pharmacare.— Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. to release preliminary housing starts data for July.— Small Business Minister Mary Ng in London, Ont., to announce federal investments in support of local women entrepreneurs.— Chrystia Freeland, Minister of Foreign Affairs, will meet with workers and businesses in Calgary, Alberta, and discuss the benefits of the new NAFTA. ———The Canadian Presslast_img read more
