Anthony DemangoneHow do you spend the first 10 minutes of your day?A recent article I read says it is a very important decision. Both for chefs, and for you. Yep, I said chefs. Here’s a snippet.If you’re working in the kitchen of Anthony Bourdain, legendary chef of Brasserie Les Halles, best-selling author, and famed television personality, you don’t dare so much as boil hot water without attending to a ritual that’s essential for any self-respecting chef: mise-en-place.The “Meez,” as professionals call it, translates into “everything in its place.” In practice, it involves studying a recipe, thinking through the tools and equipment you will need, and assembling the ingredients in the right proportion before you begin. It is the planning phase of every meal—the moment when chefs evaluate the totality of what they are trying to achieve and create an action plan for the meal ahead.For the experienced chef, mise-en-place represents more than a quaint practice or a time-saving technique. It’s a state of mind.I like Bourdain, and I get a kick out of the quote. Because as much as his personality comes across as free and unpredictable, much of his success has come from planning. From the mise-en-place. Do most of us follow suit? The article argues that we do not.Most of us do not work in kitchens. We do not interact with ingredients that need to be collected, prepped, or measured. And yet the value of applying a similar approach and deliberately taking time out to plan before we begin is arguably greater. continue reading »last_img read more

It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically.

So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored Animals, Biodiversity, Captive Breeding, Commentary, Conservation, Critically Endangered Species, Endangered Species, Environment, Ex-situ Conservation, Extinction, Mammals, Megafauna, Rainforest Animals, Rhinos, Saving Species From Extinction, Sumatran Rhino, Wildlife center_img The presence of near-extinct Sumatran rhinos in Indonesian Borneo was for a long time the stuff of legend, with no hard evidence to support it. Still, wildlife experts spared no effort to investigate every scrap of information.Those rumors eventually bore fruit with the capture of two individuals by conservationists in the past two years. The first rhino, however, died of injuries sustained before its capture.Today, a facility in eastern Borneo holds the other rhino, a female, with around-the-clock care from vets and experts, as part of a wider effort to kick-start a captive-breeding program.This post is a commentary. The views expressed are those of the author, not necessarily Mongabay. In 1982, an orangutan researcher working in Indonesian Borneo wrote to a colleague at the biology department at the National University in Jakarta. He told of meeting a traditional-medicine trader at the market in Pangkalan Bun, a city in Central Kalimantan province.“A whole Sumatran rhino head is immersed in coconut oil in a basin,” Muhammad Boang wrote. “That oil is later put into little finger-size bottles, and sold for 5,000 rupiah,” nearly $8 at the time. “It’s believed to cure various ailments. According to the trader, the rhino came from the forest in Tanjung Puting,” at the time a newly established national park.Three decades later, environmentalists from the Titian Foundation would once again get information of Sumatran rhinos (Dicerorhinus sumatrensis) in Indonesian Borneo, this time in East Kalimantan province. In 2012, the foundation’s founder, Darmawan Liswanto, received reports of rhino sightings in the Mahakam Ulu foothills upstream of the Mahakam River. The area includes the Kelian Lestari protected forest, and was formerly a mining site spanning 67 square kilometers (26 square miles).The Indonesian part of Borneo island, known as Kalimantan, is shown in red. Image courtesy of Gunkarta/Wikimedia Commons.The presence of Sumatran rhinos in Indonesian Borneo was for a long time the stuff of legend, with no hard evidence to support it. The species was considered locally extinct, until WWF-Indonesia found signs of a rhino there in 2013.Early that year, an orangutan survey team from the NGO found fresh tracks believed to be from a rhino. The discovery prompted more intensive surveys, including setting up a camera trap and interviewing residents across West Kutai district, East Kalimantan province.The interviews indicated that there were pockets of potentially viable habitat for Sumatran rhinos in East Kalimantan. The surveyors identified these as Habitat Pockets 1, 2 and 3. Field surveys in Habitat Pockets 1 and 3 found signs of a rhino presence, including footprints, droppings, half-eaten vegetation, mangled branches, scuffed tree bark, and mud wallows. In mid-2013, a camera trap recorded a rhino in Habitat Pocket 1.On Oct. 2 that year, the forestry minister announced the rhino discovery at the Asian Rhino Range States Meeting taking place in Lampung, Sumatra. In 2014, a series of systematic and collaborative surveys were begun to uncover the rhinos’ population and distribution.In October 2014, locals reported finding rhino tracks in Habitat Pocket 3. The area was already under threat from human activity, including hunting, logging, clearing, burning, mining, and cultivation of oil palms.“The results of a 2015 survey by WWF-Indonesia and Mulawarman University indicate there are more than 15 Sumatran rhinos in Habitat Pocket 1,” Yuyun Kurniawan, from WWF-Indonesia, said in a Population and Habitat Viability Assessment (PHVA) presentation that year.Locals had also reported a rhino presence in Habitat Pocket 2 since 2013. But surveys by WWF-Indonesia and the Alliance for Forest Conservation (ALeRT) from 2016 to 2018 turned up no evidence of rhinos there.Since 2013, meanwhile, there were three rhinos known to live in Habitat Pocket 3, all females: Najaq, Pahu and Tenaik (Pahu’s calf). But conditions are increasingly dire for the rhinos there, surrounded by mines and oil palm plantations.Najaq was captured on March 12, 2016. She died on April 5, from wounds inflicted by a snare. There are no signs at present of Tenaik, believed to be about 5 years old. A Rhino Protection Unit (RPU) set up by WWF-Indonesia, the Indonesian Rhino Foundation (YABI) and the East Kalimantan conservation agency (BKSDA) found 250 snares and traps in a three-month period in 2016, set up to hunt wild boars and deer.Najaq before her death in April 2016. Image by Ari Wibowo/WWF-Indonesia.The morning of Nov. 25, 2018, was a memorable one for the Sumatran rhino conservation community. That was the day Pahu was successfully and safely captured. Three days later, she was transferred to the Sumatran Rhino Sanctuary (SRS) in Kelian Lestari.Wiratno, the conservation chief at the Ministry of Environment and Forestry, said the translocation was an important first step in the effort to boost conservation of the Sumatran rhino. He said the government was fully committed not just to the capture of rhinos for conservation and captive breeding, but also to the protection of their habitats.“Our hope is that the population of the species will recover,” he said.At the Kelian Lestari SRS, a team of veterinarians and experts are keeping close tabs on Pahu, ensuring she remains safe and healthy in her new environment.The Sumatran rhino is one of the mammals most at threat from extinction. With a population of fewer than 100 individuals, the species is at a critical point. For years it was hunted and saw its habitat destroyed. The population that remains is now scattered, making it difficult for individuals to find each other to mate.As a result of this prolonged isolation, the captive-breeding effort itself poses a risk to the fertility of the rhinos. Whether the species survives depends on the conservationists’ ability to capture and transfer the rhinos to facilities specially built for their care.The Kelian Lestari SRS where Pahu now lives features a high diversity of plants. These include plants whose leaves or fruit the rhinos like to eat, such as blackboard tree (Alstonia scholaris), Vitex pubescens, bandicoot berry (Leea indica), purple simpoh (Dillenia excelsa), native hibiscus (Hibiscus tiliaceus), and different kinds of fig trees (Ficus spp).Any rhinos kept here will only be given food that can be found in the nearby forest. Additional food is limited to jackfruit (Artocarpus integra) or rubber fig (Ficus elastica) leave, which can be obtained from nearby villages. Even then, the SRS staff have to ensure that the leaves don’t come from farms or plantations that use pesticides. Rhinos become susceptible to disease if their diet isn’t diverse enough or is contaminated with pesticides.If, over the next year, conservationists are unable to capture and move any of the rhinos in Habitat Pocket 1 to the Kelian Lestari SRS, an important decision needs to be made. One of the males currently at the Way Kambas SRS in Lampung, Sumatra, must immediately be sent to Kelian Lestari to mate with Pahu. It’s important that this happen for the Sumatran rhino conservation program to work as hoped.Pahu was captured from a forest in East Kalimantan by conservationists in an effort to protect the near-extinct species.

Sadjudin is a senior rhino researcher who has been involved in rhino conservation program for over 40 years in Indonesia.The story was first published on our Indonesian site on Dec. 2, 2018.Editor’s note: For an alternative view of the capture of Najaq, see this 2016 commentary by Erik Meijaard.FEEDBACK: Use this form to send a message to the author of this post.

MANILA — As one of the world’s most climate-vulnerable countries, the Philippines is known for its active participation in the global climate movement and negotiations at various forums. But despite having dedicated groups leading the climate fight, with the latest addition of the youth-initiated Climate Strike Philippines, mobilization at the grassroots level suffers from weak numbers.While up to a million people turned out in some developed countries for the Sept. 20 global climate strikes, only around 600 people gathered in Manila on Nov. 29 for the global day for action ahead of this week’s U.N. climate summit in Madrid.The turnout pales in comparison to other major protests held in the country, Lidy Nacpil of the Asian People’s Movement on Debt and Development said at a press conference, and was even lower than the “couple of thousand” people that organizers had anticipated.“It’s difficult when the issue is climate because we’re talking about future impacts,” Nacpil said, adding that other social issues, including poverty and unfair labor practices, rate higher on Filipinos’ list of priorities. “If it’s about other issues, the response is usually higher because the impacts are already being felt by people.”And while some countries have already integrated climate change studies in their school curriculums, the Philippines is still in the process of doing so. Italy announced that it would become the first country to require climate change classes for students. “It’s not yet like that for us,” Nacpil said. “We have to rely on our limited reach.”Discussions on climate change on the grassroots level are limited, she said, and “won’t be enough to convince ordinary Filipinos to join the strikes.” Interest in the issue tends to give way to the more tangible problems of “food, livelihood and wages.”Flora Santos of Oriang, a local women’s group, said the key is to explain the issue of climate change in a way locals can relate to. “They see how important it is because of their own experiences with typhoons, flooding, drought,” she said. “They feel that the issue is urgent.”The organizers said it will be a big challenge to drum up support for the climate strikes in the run-up to 2020, considered a turning point as it will determine whether nations can meet their commitments to limiting greenhouse gas emissions and capping the global temperature rise to less than 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) above pre-industrial levels.Banner image of activists and youth climate strikers on Mendiola, a famed site for street demonstrations in the Philippines, braving the deluge to call for climate action.

first_imgDe notre envoyé spécial à Nicosie, Julien Mollereau Les notes des joueursLa DéfenseJoubert 7 : On ne l’a pas vu de la première période, à part sur l’une ou l’autre prise de balle bienvenue sur des ballons qui traînent. Il peut peut-être sortir sur le premier but chypriote et peut-être mieux capter la frappe initiale sur le troisième. La vérité, c’est qu’il est décisif trois fois derrière sur des ballons de but.Bouchouari 6 : Une grosse activité d’emblée, avec pas mal de sérénité aussi. Il s’est un peu fourvoyé dans le jeu long, mais donne le troisième but. Un match courageux.Schnell 9 : Toujours la même autorité naturelle dans les duels. Il a découpé deux joueurs à l’épaule dans la première demi-heure et cela marque un match. Monstrueux. Pas d’autre mot.Garos 7 : Son positionnement derrière n’est pas une énorme surprise, mais une petite quand même. Et il a été nickel. Dépassé sur le centre du 2-1.Kirch 4 : Thomas Doll avait choisi de se passer d’Al-Taamari. Bonne nouvelle. D’une grande sûreté d’entrée, il a relancé proprement. Puis a vu de très près le black-out de trois minutes qui a plongé le F91 dans le noir. Court sur le centre pour fermer. Fautif deux fois sur le penalty. Remplacé par Lesquoy (62e), très bien entré en jeu, tout en vivacité.Le milieuMorren 6 : Une jolie présence dans l’entrejeu et c’était nécessaire avec cette équipe quand même très offensive au coup d’envoi. Pour l’équilibre.Pokar 6 : Très utile dans son rôle de plaque tournante pour conserver un peu le ballon et se ménager de la possessionStolz 7 : Un bel investissement défensif et quelques très bons ballons distribués devant… sauf que Mendy ne les a pas exploités. Chacune de ses courses a mis la défense chypriote à l’agonie. Remplacé par Cools (90+2) après un but de renard.Bernier 8 : D’une précision diabolique dès qu’il a fallu jouer sur la profondeur. L’ouverture sur le but de Sinani, c’est lui. Le deuxième but, c’est lui. Une incroyable activité. Il aurait bien mérité un deuxième but, à la 75e.L’attaqueMendy 4 : Il a tenu un rôle de pivot et l’a très bien tenu. Quel dommage, cette conduite de balle à la 29e alors qu’il part seul au but… Et pire encore cette «fausse queue» seul devant le but vide. Le souci, c’est que dès qu’il s’est retrouvé ensuite dans la surface, le manque de confiance l’a fait déjouer. Remplacé par Lavie (67e), auteur de petits déboulés intéressants.Sinani 9 : La première occasion dangereuse du match est pour lui, mais il croise un peu trop (6e). Pas sur sa seconde, seul face au but, pour faire 0-1. Puis pour remettre son équipe devant avec la classe d’un grand. Mais quel tripoteur de ballon ce gamin… Quelle soirée folle, il faut le dire encore, pour le F91 de Dudelange en Europa League jeudi soir ! Victoire 3-4 à l’extérieur contre l’Apoel Nicosie…Voici les réactions recueillies par notre envoyée spécial, et les notes des joueurs.Bertrand Crasson (coach du F91) : «C’est effectivement proche d’un exploit. Je dois dire que les joueurs ont été formidables, résistant à une pression terrible après le troisième but chypriote et ils ont réagi après avoir perdu le fil. Il faut les féliciter parce qu’ils ont tous fait un travail extraordinaire et tout le monde a rempli sa mission de manière parfaite. On est très heureux parce que c’est une belle aventure qui continue. Ou qui commence. On a la chance de mettre quatre buts à cette équipe alors qu’on n’était tellement pas favoris… Niveau émotions, sur le banc, je dirais qu’on en a eu plus que les joueurs. C’est mon meilleur moment en tant que coach et on a fait preuve d’une telle maturité que je dirais que cela pourrait être le déclencheur de confiance qu’il nous faut pour la Division nationale. Parce que si on peut jouer comme ça ici, cela veut dire qu’il y a la qualité.»Thomas Doll (coach de l’APOEL) : «Le football de la première période, ce n’est pas à cause du système que nous avons joué aujourd’hui. Arrêtez avec le football. Il n’y avait pas de vitesse, pas d’émotions, on perdait la balle trop facilement, on balançait de longs ballons alors qu’on ne s’est pas entraînés à ça une seule fois cette semaine. Quel que soit le système, quand le football n’est pas bon… À 3-2, on aurait dû plus réfléchir avec nos têtes. On leur a rendu le match facile en commettant d’énormes bévues derrière. On n’était même pas bons dans les duels.»Lehit Zeghdane (coach adjoint du F91) : «Cela fait 18 ans que je suis là et pour moi, c’est la chose la plus folle que j’aie vue. Et j’espère que ce n’est pas la dernière. Chaque année, ce club évolue. Les joueurs viennent et repartent, les coaches viennent et repartent, mais la qualité reste, même avec une moyenne d’âge incroyablement basse. Ce n’est pas anodin d’être là et de gagner. Et ce n’est que partie remise : je suis sûr que nous allons encore marquer des buts dans cette campagne. Et non, je ne m’enflamme pas. Pour moi, tout cela, c’est juste une suite logique.»center_img Partagerlast_img read more

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technology Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Google just announced a new feature for mobile called Search History; users can opt-in to having their logged-in searches saved, starred, edited and accessed from across mobile or desktop searching.Google has long allowed logged in users to save their search or even web browsing histories for full-text search or retrieval, but offering easy access to this from the home page of Google.com, including on mobile, is very convenient. It’s convenient, but it’s not super exciting. This is our data, after all, and hopefully in the future we’ll be able to see far more value be built on top of it than just search and retrieval. Our online click-streams are one of the most familiar examples of what some data analysts call our growing “data exhaust.” That doesn’t mean we’re exhausted by data, rather that we emit huge quantities of it as we proceed through everyday life. Where there is meaningful data, there is an opportunity to discover patterns, make recommendations and offer other sorts of forward-looking insight. There is definitely meaningful data in Google Mobile searches, the company’s market share in mobile search is up to more than 98% this year, according to independent analysis. Google said last month that mobile searches on Android are up 300% in the first half of this year.The Potential in User DataOne startup four years ago partnered with the Chicago Board of Trade to create a futures market for user clickstream data, with the intention of selling say a large quantity of user data from people searching for new cars, not now but a year from now. That proved a little too far ahead of its time, but the point is this: there is substantial amounts of value latent in online user activity data. Make bulk user data opt-in and programmatically accessible and you’ve got a platform just waiting to be innovated on.So for now we’ll be able to access and edit our search histories from across desktop and mobile searches. That’s cool, but I’m still waiting for a future that’s far more fabulous.

first_imgIn the grand pantheon of disgraced technology company CEOs, the resume blunder of ousted Yahoo Chief Executive Scott Thompson seems almost trivial. Claiming an unearned degree pales in comparison to the true titans of tech transgressions – whose careers were toppled by everything from massive fraud and grand larceny to inappropriate dalliances with underlings. Each imploded in their own particular way, but all their stories come mixed with heaping helpings of arrogance and a dollop of coverup.Here’s your chance to meet the real world of Horrible Bosses, and get a glimpse of how they were rewarded – or occasionally punished – for behaving badly: Scott Thompson, Former Yahoo CEOScott Thompson was at Yahoo’s helm only five months before getting the boot for claiming to have a computer science degree from a college that didn’t offer one at the time. While a charitable observer might say he never lied, Thompson also never explained how that erroneous info got on his work bio. Nevertheless, the untruth gave investor activist Dan Loeb just what he needed in his proxy battle to stack the Yahoo board with his supporters. Thompson was given the heave-ho this month and Loeb, who runs the hedge fund Third Point, got the board seats. Thompson didn’t leave empty handed. While he missed out on a severance package, he did walk away with $7 million in bonuses from the struggling Internet portal. Brian Dunn, Former Best Buy CEOBrian Dunn stepped down in April as chief executive of electronics retailer Best Buy for what the company later called an “extremely close personal relationship” with a female employee more than 20 years younger. The 51-year-old Dunn did not use company resources in his “friendship,” which included lunch and drinks during the workweek and on weekends. The pair also seemed to stay in touch a lot. During two separate trips abroad for a total of nine days, Dunn contacted his “friend” by mobile phone at least 224 times. In the end, the board found that Dunn’s behavior violated company policy, yet he was still entitled to some big bucks. His separation package totaled $6.6 million. Mark Hurd, Former Hewlett-Packard CEOMark Hurd resigned in August 2010 as chief executive of tech giant Hewlett-Packard following a dalliance with a contract employee who later accused Hurd of sexual harassment. While investigating the allegations, the HP board found that Hurd had doctored expense reports in order to hide his personal relationship with marketing consultant Jodie Fisher, a former soft-core porn actress. Fisher denied the relationship with the married Hurd was sexual. She settled privately with Hurd and both sides agreed not to discuss the affair. Hurd left HP with $12.2 million in severance and enough stock to earn millions more – and was immediately hired by his friend Larry Ellison as co-president, director and board member of Oracle. David Edmondson, Former RadioShack CEODavid Edmondson resigned in February 2006 as CEO of electronics retailer RadioShack after lying about his education. Edmondson topped Yahoo’s Thompson by claiming to have two college degrees when he had none. The CEO apologized for the “embarrassment” he brought to the company. RadioShack’s hometown newspaper, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram, broke the story, reporting Edmondson never graduated from the unaccredited bible college he attended. The newspaper also found that the CEO was facing a trial on his third arrest on drunk-driving charges. Edmondson left the company with a severance payment of less than $1 million in cash. Sanjay Kumar, Former Computer Associates CEOSanjay Kumar, ex-CEO of IT management software and solutions company Computer Associates, pleaded guilty in 2006 to his role in a $2.2 billion accounting fraud. He also admitted to interfering with a federal investigation by authorizing a payment of $3.7 million to silence a potential witness. Kumar, who was once a part owner of the New York Islanders hockey team, was sentenced to 12 years in prison, which he started serving in 2007. Computer Associates, which later changed its name to CA Technologies, paid more than $225 million to a shareholder restitution fund. Kumar contributed about $20 million from his own assets. John Rigas, Founder, Former CEO of Adelphia CommunicationsAfter leading Adelphia Communications for more than five decades, Chief Executive John Rigas was sentenced in 2005 to 15 years in prison in a multibillion-dollar fraud case that collapsed the company he founded. Rigas and his son Timothy Rigas, who was Adelphia’s chief financial officer, were convicted of 18 felony counts of fraud and conspiracy. The younger Rigas got 20 years in prison. The Rigases were convicted of stealing $100 million from Adelphia, which had been the fifth-largest cable company in the nation. They also were found guilty of conspiring to hide $2.3 billion in company debt. Bernard Ebbers, Former CEO of WorldComBernard Ebbers was sentenced in 2005 to 25 years in prison for leading the nation’s largest-ever corporate fraud. The former chief executive of telecom carrier WorldCom was convicted of nine felonies in an $11 billion accounting scandal at the company. When WorldCom filed for bankruptcy in 2002, it was the largest in U.S. history and led to shareholders and employees losing billions of dollars. Ebbers forfeited the bulk of his assets to burned WorldCom investors. Those assets included a Mississippi mansion and other holdings worth as much as $45 million. The day before his sentencing, Ebbers called the predicament he was in “bizarre.”Robert McCormick, Former CEO of Savvis CommunicationsRobert McCormick resigned in 2005 as chief executive of IT infrastructure management outfit Savvis Communications (now owned by CenturyLink) after it was revealed that he spent $241,000 entertaining business associates at a Manhattan strip club. The company’s board might have looked the other way, if McCormick hadn’t used his corporate charge card to pay for lap dances and then claim to be a victim of fraud when American Express demanded its money. Dubbed the “The Lap Dunce” by The New York Daily News, McCormick never submitted an expense report for the party at Scores. The company claimed it did not pay for McCormick’s night out on the town. Joe Nacchio, Former CEO of QwestOne-time Qwest CEO Joe Nacchio was convicted in 2007 of 19 counts of insider trading and was sentenced to nearly six years in prison. Nacchio was convicted of selling $52 million in stock in 2001 after it became known internally that the telecom carrier (also now owned by CenturyLink) was in danger of missing sales forecasts. Nacchio, who resigned in 2002, was ordered to forfeit almost $46 million and pay a $19 million fine. In 2011, Nacchio sued his lawyers from prison, claiming they were negligent. He also accused them of overbilling, pointing to charges that included lawyers’ underwear purchases. Gregory Reyes, Former CEO of BrocadeGregory Reyes was convicted in 2007 in a stock options backdating scandal at networking solutions vendor Brocade and received a 21-month prison term. The conviction was later overturned and the ex-CEO was retried. Prosecutors won again and he was sentenced in 2010 to 18 months in prison. At his second sentencing hearing, Reyes broke down crying, and his attorney had to read his statement for him. At his second criminal trial, Reyes blamed the company’s outside counsel, which he claimed signed off on the backdating of stock options. The judge at the sentencing hearing didn’t buy the argument, saying that, at some point, people have to take responsibility for what they say and do.Thompson photo courtesy of Yodel Anecdotal. Raju image via World Economic Forum/Flickr.

first_imgCCH Tax Day ReportLegislation introduced in the Hawaii House of Representatives, the Simplified Seller Use Tax Remittance Act, would establish a simplified sellers use tax remittance program designed to allow eligible remote sellers to voluntarily collect, report, and remit a simplified sellers use tax, instead of the general excise or use taxes otherwise due. Collection and remittance of the simplified sellers use tax would relieve the seller and purchaser of liability for any additional general excise or use taxes due on the transaction.To participate in the program, remote sellers would apply to the Hawaii Department of Taxation and would agree to collect, report, and remit the simplified sellers use tax for all sales delivered into Hawaii for as long as they participate in the program; agree to provide the department with certain information related to sales to Hawaii customers; and agree to comply with all program reporting requirements.RateThe simplified sellers use tax would be imposed at the rate of 4% of the sales price on any tangible personal property sold or delivered into Hawaii by an eligible seller participating in the program. No eligible seller would be required to collect the tax at a rate greater than 4%, regardless of the combined actual tax rates that may otherwise apply. Furthermore, sales for which the simplified sellers use tax is collected would not be subject to any county surcharge.[Note: Hawaii’s general excise and use tax rate is generally 4% on retail sales. In addition, Honolulu imposes a 0.5% county surcharge on the island of Oahu.]Exempt PurchasesParticipating eligible sellers would be required to collect the simplified sellers use tax on all purchases delivered into Hawaii unless the purchaser provides the seller with a valid exemption certificate and general excise tax license.Collection DiscountEligible sellers would be authorized to deduct and retain a collection discount equal to 2% of the simplified sellers use tax properly collected and timely remitted.AmnestyWith certain restrictions, eligible sellers participating in the program would be granted amnesty for any uncollected remote use tax that may have been due on sales made to purchasers in Hawaii for the 12-month period before the effective date of the seller’s participation in the program.Other ProvisionsOther provisions in the proposed legislation include definitions and provisions regarding administration of the simplified sellers use tax, an online reporting and remittance system, refunds, applicability of the Simplified Seller Use Tax Remittance Act provisions in the event federal remote seller legislation is enacted, and removal of a seller from the program for failure to collect and report the tax.Subscribers can view the introduced legislation.HI HB 1413, introduced 1/25/17H.B. 1413, as introduced in the Hawaii House of Representatives on January 25, 2017last_img read more

As a fashion and interiors designer, I travel the,Jade Jagger, DesignerWe have a cookie cutter approach to design in the West. It wasn’t always like this, but in recent years, a lack of artistic input, from the high street to our homes, has left a legacy of homogeneous design.As a fashion and interiors designer, I travel the world working and looking for inspiration. My hope is that countries with strong design identities, such as the big new superpowers, India and China, don’t end up heading down the same route as the West as far as this approach to design goes.India has been an important place for me. I have a house in Goa where I spend a great deal of time, using it as a hub to visit the rest of the country. I’ve worked in India for 20 years now, with many of my jewellery workshops based there, and the country is one of the few places that still really reveres the kind of hand-crafts that I’m interested in. There is huge attention to detail and old-fashioned standards. Good design in is their DNA.Of course, India has changed a great deal in that time. But while it has embraced global influences like coffee shops, the streets aren’t littered with Starbucks. Instead, they have a homegrown brand, Cafe Coffee Day, that is hugely popular with the nation’s youth, which shows you can create large scale business models without being bland.Fab India, a clothing and homes store which reminds me a little of Habitat in its glory days, has a similarly individual feel despite its prevalence. Thousands of rural producers help to create their products, using traditional techniques and skills. This makes for a multitude of different styles so that, say, if you find a tablecloth you like, the chances are you won’t find one to match. To me, this is hugely exciting.An outside view of the swanky living room designed by Jade Jagger for The Lodha Group in MumbaiIndia itself has a number of different design identities. In Mumbai for example, people dress differently to those in other Indian cities so it is a Mecca for inspiration. The women are much more embellished and the men sport more outrageous styles than you find elsewhere in the country.The refreshing thing is that this sense of style, this love of great design, runs through every social class. Everyone in India, whatever their financial situation, cherishes and owns items that are beautiful and unique. Whether it’s a fabulous shawl, a hanging on the wall or jewellery, you can see that everybody invests as much effort as they can to decorate themselves and their homes with great design. In India, if you’re looking for some metal furniture, for example, you’re more likely to go to the ironmonger and create your own chair than go to a shop. This is a country in touch with artisan production and craft.Fine workmanship and craftsmanship is expected and appreciated. Let’s face it, an India full of shops selling the same items in Mumbai as you’d find in Manchester or Miami, like a fast food chain, would be a design disaster. There are cultural differences and I think we should maintain and celebrate them. No design should ever be a carbon copy of something overseas.Whether I’m working with unique fashion pieces, or on larger scale interior design projects for yoo, I always seek to deliver originality. This is why the amount of design duplication in fashion frustrates me. I don’t see why the high street can’t come up with some of its own original designs instead of endlessly copying others.India aside, there are several other places close to my heart which have a distinct design quality and a kind of visual language that in inherent in the local culture.The bedroom at The Lodha Fiorenza Show Suite that draws on Indian motifs and rich colours like burnished gold and redIn Morocco there’s definitely still a love for intricacy, while in Ibiza that Mediterranean whiteness and cleanliness remains strong. In northern Europe, of course, we lean toward darker colours and generally a more cosy way of finishing off our homes.My home in Ibiza is a good example of integrating with the local culture. The design for it is quite minimalistic in a way, in terms of colours, but the house has got a great combination of Mediterranean courtyard, a main room with a grand double height ceiling, and a smattering of Moorish influences.I’ve currently got projects running in Portugal, Morocco and India and, while the odd client still wants some imported marble or the like, I’m finding there is an increased desire for a look and feel that’s authentic. People want design that is defined by their country and that sits harmoniously with the environment.In a world under threat from insipid, homogeneous design, we should celebrate those who constantly seek the unique.Jade Jagger is Creative Director of yoo; www.yoo.com, jadejagger.comadvertisementadvertisementlast_img read more
