Tom Holland shares epic bottle toss video to show he misses “husband” Jake Gyllenhaal

first_imgPhoto by Woohae Cho/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — What’s a better way to show a friend you miss them than by telling them via an epic video of the two of you spending quality together? Nothing, because that’s exactly what Tom Holland did.The 23-year-old actor shared a video of himself on a private jet with a few others, including his Spiderman co-star Jake Gyllenhaal, whom he shouts out in the caption by claiming he’s “Missing my husband.” In the clip, which was posted to Instagram on Tuesday, Holland takes on the bottle toss challenge, a challenge that requires the participant to throw a plastic bottle into the air so that it rotates and lands either on its base or cap.To everyone’s, surprise, including his own, he successfully flips the bottle into the air and into a nearby cupholder. “What?!?” Gyllenhaal exclaimed in the background as Holland enthusiastically throws his hands up in the air.While the two actors play enemies on-screen as Spiderman and Mysterio in the 2019 film Spiderman: Far From Home, the truth is quite the opposite.They have forged quite the bromance, though they would rather call it a “straight-up romance” if it were up to them. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

There’s also a little extra treat with coffee and tea: Eclat de Valrhona, a 61 percent premium cocoa dark chocolate from chocolatier Valrhona near Lyon in France.eva premiumEVA’s new fruit juice will be a refreshing start to the flight.The whole effect is to bring quite cost-effective changes that — to steal a phrase from the very zeitgeisty Marie Kondo — spark joy among passengers who might be stressed, tired or simply not expecting any magic from the airline experience.A stonking bottle of champers, an amenity kit you might actually like to keep, a really tasty bite to eat: this is the sort of surprise and delight that airlines need to be creating.last_img read more

NYC Receipts Allocation Reflects Employees and Consultants

first_imgA 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?

ABC Wants Faster Rapid Report Filings

first_img“As buyers, we recognize that this data is an estimate posting or early glimpse of a publication’s circulation, not the final audit,” Robin Steinberg, senior vice president and director of print investment at MediaVest USA said in a statement. “This gives us the ability to ask the right questions of our partners. The timely availability of this information is vital as we compare print with the myriad of other media options in today’s changing marketplace.” When it launched in 2006, the Rapid Report system—which allows publishers to voluntarily report their top-line circulation data on an issue-by-issue basis within weeks of the on-sale date—was slow to get participation from major publishers, who were reluctant to share the data with rivals. The free service seemed to finally gain traction last fall when Time Inc. joined the program.Today, a growing number of major magazine publishers have joined that program. American Media Inc. and Meredith have been on board since the beginning. Others, including Bauer, Bonnier, Condé Nast, Hachette, Hearst, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia and long-time Rapid Report holdout Wenner Media, have since signed on. The Audit Bureau of Circulations has established a set of initial posting guidelines in hopes of speeding up and regulating the process for consumer magazines to file their circulation figures with the Rapid Report program. ABC’s board approved the guidelines in a meeting last week.Until now, the filing process has been a bit haphazard with publishers filing their sales numbers “basically whenever they get around to it,” the ABC said in a recent interview with FOLIO:. The guidelines come as consumer publishers are facing increased pressure from some advertisers to deliver engagement numbers more frequently.According to the new guidelines, weekly magazine publishers will be required to post their initial per-issue projections no later than three weeks after the on-sale date. Monthly magazine publishers will need to file no later than seven weeks after going on sale.last_img read more
