MARK MCHUGH says teams ‘trying to keep the score down’ in Championship games are playing a ‘pointless’ exercise. Kilcar defeated Bundoran 1-20 to 1-13 on Sunday with McHugh again to the fore.The former Donegal player expressed some frustration at some tactics he has witness so far in the Championship. “It’s frustrating, but that’s how teams set up and we have to learn from that and deal with that,” McHugh told Paddy McGill of Ocean FM.“When we were in control they didn’t want to come out. Malin did the same last week.“I want to win every game I play. If I’m eight down I don’t sit back and try to keep the score down. It’s a bit pointless. That’s not why we play sport.Listen to the full interview below … Listen: ‘That’s not why we play sport’ – Mark McHugh on SFC tactics was last modified: September 15th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:2019 Donegal SFCbundorankilcarMalinMark McHugh
A company’s receipts were allocated to New York City based on the location of its consultants and employees, including salespeople.Receipts Were From Client SubscriptionsThe company argued that only its consultants and research managers should be taken into account in calculating the receipts factor. On the other hand, the City argued that it was solely the salespeople whose efforts generated the company’s service receipts.However, the Tax Appeals Tribunal rejected both of those positions. The receipts were from clients who paid the company a fixed price for a subscription service. The service was produced through the efforts of both the independent consultants and the company’s employees.Reasonable Method of AllocationA rule authorized allocation based on relative values or time spent within and outside the City, or another reasonable method. Accordingly, the Tribunal calculated a receipts factor for each of the tax years at issue. For example, the Tribunal determined the compensation paid to consultants in the City as a percentage of their worldwide compensation. The case was remanded to the administrative law judge to recalculate the company’s liability using the Tribunal’s receipts factors.Gerson Lehrman Group, Inc., New York City Tax Appeals Tribunal, TAT(E)08-79(GC), TAT(E)12-38(GC), and TAT(E)12-39(GC), December 28, 2017, ¶600-845Login to read more tax news on CCH® AnswerConnect or CCH® Intelliconnect®.Not a subscriber?

SOCIAL MIX AND standing still plays a large part in whether or not students attend third-level education.That is the finding of an ESRI study released today that gives insight into he experiences of young people transitioning into further/higher education and the labour market.Leaving School in Ireland: A Longitudinal Study of Post-School Transitions follows the pathways taken by over 750 students as they make the leap from second-level school into the next phase of their lives.The report finds that schools make a notable difference on how students choose their path to third-level.“Young people who had more positive interactions with their teachers were more likely to stay on in education after leaving school.”It also found that class played a part.“The social mix of the school had a particularly strong influence. Young people who attended socially-mixed schools and middle-class schools, were more likely than those from working-class schools to go on to some form of post-school education and training, all else being equal.”However, the difference in learning from Leaving Cert to third-level makes things difficult for those transitioning between the two. 80% highlighted particular difficulties in relation to the standard expected of them, the difficulty of the course and managing their workload.The study calls for a number of policy implements. It says that junior cycle reform must be broader in order to engage young people in learning and says that the senior cycle should equip young people for lifelong learning. Report author Selina McCoy said “the research shows that schools make a significant difference to young people’s longer term outcomes. Aspirations to further and higher education emerge as early as junior cycle, indicating the importance of providing a supportive school climate which encourages high aspirations among all students”.

News Facebook Aguilera won Best New Artist at the 42nd GRAMMY Awards and has picked up four additional GRAMMY wins since, most recently for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for “Say Something” With A Great Big World at the 57th GRAMMY Awards. A new LP from Aguilera would be the sixth of her career.Catching Up On Music News Powered By The Recording Academy Just Got Easier. Have A Google Home Device? “Talk To GRAMMYs” The video opens with a silhouette in water before showing Aguilera lying in bed and eventually speaking, as she declares, “You feel in life when you get to a place where you feel so comfortable and so routine, then you know you have to stop and start from scratch.”The video ends with her lighting a match in front of her face as a mere half-bar of a beat plays softly behind the image. All together, the video runs just 14 seconds.This latest tease of new music comes two days after Aguilera shared a more cryptic Twitter post and a subsequent fan post that has caused fans to suspect the project might be called “Liberation.” Email What Is Christina Aguilera Planning? christina-aguilera-hints-new-album-talks-starting-scratch https://twitter.com/xtina/status/991336432890396672 Twitter NETWORK ERRORCannot Contact ServerRELOAD YOUR SCREEN OR TRY SELECTING A DIFFERENT VIDEO Nov 20, 2017 – 9:00 am Christina Aguilera On “GRAMMYs Greatest Stories” Christina Aguilera Hints At New Album, Talks Starting “From Scratch” Xtina takes to Twitter to tease what would be her first new album in six yearsNate HertweckGRAMMYs May 2, 2018 – 8:37 am It’s been six years since Christina Aguilera’s most recent album, 2012’s Lotus.

With a dapper cowboy hat, Horan sets the rhythmic tone with his strumming acoustic guitar figure, complemented by only sparse percussion. And when Morris and Horan harmonize, it’s a cloud nine combo akin to peanut butter and jelly.”Seeing Blind” is featured on Horan’s debut album, 2017’s Flicker, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200. Interestingly, the teaming of Horan and Morris has the GRAMMY Awards to thank.”I had heard a lot about Maren and she was making a lot of noise clearly with her album,” Horan told GRAMMY.com last fall. “And I watched the [59th] GRAMMYs, she performs with Alicia Keys, she wins a GRAMMY. I’m like, ‘That is right up my street there.'” Facebook
BBC Doctor Who Netflix 9 classic ‘Doctor Who’ adventures on Britbox 24 Photos 0 The BBC and ITV tried to team up 10 years ago for a service codenamed Project Kangaroo, but regulators kiboshed it. If they’d managed to launch something like Britbox back then, Netflix might have had a tougher time establishing such dominance over the streaming market. Critics of the BBC already complain that viewers pay for the service through the compulsory license fee, so why should we have to pay again to access services like Britbox? I can see their point, but the fact remains the license fee covers the BBC’s current activity, with some bonus archive stuff thrown in on iPlayer. Unless you have a time machine, the only way to see older shows has always been to fork out for videos or DVDs.Even if we do have to shell out, the cost of a streaming subscription is far cheaper than buying DVDs. And the money goes back into the TV channels, helping our local broadcasters compete against the global behemoth Netflix — not to mention the Apple and Disney+ streaming services also set to launch this year.Speaking of which, the launch of Britbox might see the BBC and ITV remove their content from Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and other streamers, effectively forcing viewers to pay for multiple services. But the BBC’s publicly funded status means regulators would no doubt have something to say about that.For the moment, nothing’s certain. We’ll just have to wait and see whether classic Doctor Who becomes available through Britbox.Time will tell — it always does. TV and Movies Share your voice Tags A Netflix rival combining the forces of British telly is set to launch in the UK. The BBC and ITV already offer classic and brand new TV shows to US viewers on streaming service Britbox, and have announced plans to make it available on home turf.Britbox launched in the US and Canada in 2017. It includes vintage British series like Absolutely Fabulous, Are You Being Served?, Fawlty Towers, Miss Marple, Inspector Morse, Red Dwarf and The Young Ones, all for a monthly fee of $7.ITV and the BBC said today they’ve agreed a “joint vision” for a UK version of the service and are working out the legal niceties. Other channels are also expected to join ahead of a launch in the second half of this year.The UK version of Britbox promises the biggest collection of British content available on any streamer, plus original British shows specially created for the service. It’s way too early to talk about exactly what’s going to be on there, but I have my fingers crossed for something US Britbox offers to lucky American viewers that up until now hasn’t been available to British fans: Classic episodes of Doctor Who.Enlarge ImageCould we soon be able to dial up classic Doctor Who on a streaming service? BBC The first 26 seasons of Doctor Who, spanning the first to seventh Doctors, are available to stream on US Britbox as part of that seven-buck subscription. Meanwhile, back in Blighty, where the beloved sci-fi show was born, a few stories have been available on streaming services in the past but they were pulled ahead of the launch of the short-lived BBC Store. Instead, fans have to buy each story individually.When you’re talking about three decades of telly, that’s a considerable expense. As a lifelong fan, I’d pay a few quid a month for access to Doctor Who alone. That’s just my personal wish list — the BBC declined to respond to my breathlessly excited questions about Who, and neither broadcaster has given specifics about which other series will be on Britbox. 2019 TV shows you can’t miss 50 Photos Post a comment
Close That season that comes but once a year is fast approaching â€“ I am of course talking about the onset of the Christmas shopping period. I know that it is only early in November, but I am like a lot of people with families, preferring to get their present shopping done early and out of the way.Did you know that UK households are the biggest Christmas spenders in Europe (Chart 1)? We spend an average of nearly Â£800 ($1,212, â‚¬1,127) at Christmas on presents, food, and drink, according to a recent survey by vouchercodes.co.uk. With spending on that scale, roughly Â£74bn hits UK shops and supermarkets between now and Christmas Day, providing a seasonal boost to retailers profits.Online is the way to goFor organised present shoppers, the obvious solution for purchasing the vast majority of presents is via the internet. Online shopping over the Christmas period in 2014 accounted for 23.4% of all Christmas spending, worth Â£17.4 billion.Christmas 2015 looks set to be an online spending season, given the 18% annual growth that online retailing has enjoyed so far this year, with 77% of men and 75% of women purchasing online. In fact, the UK leads the way in Europe in online shopping, with online retail sales now over 12% of total retail sales (Chart 2).Apart from the obvious destination websites such as Amazon and increasingly eBay (which now sells more more new items than second-hand), which online shopping sites could do well this Christmas season?SportsFor sports clothing such as football shirts, there is the online arm of Sports Direct (LON:SPD) which offers a lot of sale items that are not necessarily found in store. Sports Direct operate a click and collect service, where you can effectively get postage for free (you pay Â£5 but receive a Â£5 voucher when you pick up your items).I am also a big fan of the Decathlon website, the online presence of Decathlon which has a number of stores in the UK, and which is the dominant French sports retailer. They do a lot of own-brand clothing and sport equipment, including bicycles, that generally represent very good value for money.ToysMy two go-to websites for toys such as Lego and Nerf guns (as I have sons) are The Entertainer and Argos. A little tip: Argos also has an eBay store where it sells clearance and refurbished items on the cheap, so that can also be worth a look.ElectronicsThe newly merged Dixons Carphone trades under the Currys and Carphone Warehouse brands online, great for those looking to buy TVs, computers or a new mobile phone for Christmas. They are now even offering what they claim is the UKs lowest ever priced smartphone, at no upfront cost and a contract of only Â£5 per month. This could be an excellent deal for a first mobile phone for a child.ClothingPain-free online clothes present shopping can be accomplished with either Debenhams or Boohoo.com. A little tip: Debenhams are currently running a number of sale reductions on every department at the moment, so you might be able to grab yourself a little bargain.Food and DrinkOn the online supermarket front, the clear leader has to be Ocado, which offers up to 25% off your first online shop, plus a number of offers such as a wine sale where you save 25% if you buy 6 bottles.My favourite quoted online retail stocksOf these online retailers that I have mentioned above, which could deliver a pleasant surprise to investors as well as shoppers over the Christmas period? My two favourites are Debenhams (UK code: DEB) and Dixons Carphone (UK code: DC).Debenhams remains a relatively cheap retail share, at a P/E of just over 11 times (much cheaper than other retail shares) and offering a decent income with a dividend yield of 4%. Sales should grow nicely in 2016 on higher profitability, with the online business performing very well and showing strong growth.Dixons Carphone is more of a growth stock, with earnings forecast to grow 13-14% per year over 2016 and 2017, driven by ongoing strong mobile phone demand and the growth of its good value, own-brand ID Mobile mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) phone contracts.So there you have it, two ways to profit from the boom in online shopping in the lead-up to Christmas.
