first_imgThe efforts to keep our schools safe came one step closer to home, as reported by the Jan. 12 Gazette (“Parents voice school safety fears.”) It is a given that that parents, teachers and school administrators have the responsibility to make student safety a number one priority, not just part of an agenda and paying it only lip service, as public concerns were aired in a December school board meeting.While attempting to solve this dilemma, parents, teachers and school administrators had to endure pernicious twaddle from self-styled student “activists” who have never been in front of a class nor understood the dynamics of teaching, who prattle on with such useless advice as, “If you teach our children that they are valued, that they are people, that they are human beings, and that we love them, they will show up to be loved.”I was an educator and I deeply resent the inference that I was a nanny as well.I suggest that I was charged to teach young people; loving them was never part of my job description.Today’s “children” do not suffer from a lack of love.Rather, they suffer from a lack of discipline, which at one time came from the home, and have no need for any more excuses, no matter how eloquent, mitigating their behavior.The school’s task is to keep children safe.When we have successfully completed this task and the children feel safe, it stands to reason that they will learn.Michael G. DeckerSchenectadyThe writer is a retired Schenectady High School teacher.Is Congress worthy of your mountain?In the Bible, Psalm 15 starts with a question: “Lord, who may live on your holy mountain?”As I read it, I was struck by how much we would be blessed if those we elect to serve on our own Capitol Hill might be possessed of those same qualities.Katie FinneganMiddle GroveStart investing now to secure your futureI graduated high school in 1969.I bought myself a red convertible for $2,000.Had I instead invested that $2,000 in a total stock market fund and added just $2.50 per day, that little pile would now be worth over $1 million today.The moral of the story is simple. To accumulate large sums of money, one must start early, save steadily and let time and compounding do the magic for you.For those who feel the market is risky, I assure you that saving money in a lock box is much riskier.Instead of $1 million, your coffee can, lock box, mattress, whatever, would have just over $50,000. The other $950,000 in compounded earnings would be lost to you forever.Albert Einstein once said compound interest is the most powerful force in the universe. He said it is the eighth wonder of the world. It is something you should know about early in life.Don’t wake up 50 years from now and wish you did.James PavoldiDuanesburg Work harder to make  pensioners wholeThe state of New York and St. Clare’s Corp. (aka Albany Catholic Diocese) agreed to the closure of St. Clare’s Hospital in 2007 with a promise to make our pensions whole. The promise was broken, and we are not looking for a handout.Fiduciaries made some serious miscalculations for the amount needed to make our pensions whole, and St. Clare’s pensioners are paying the price for this enormous mistake by facing a bleak financial future — and as a result having to sell our homes and inability to stay afloat paying bills.As directed by the state in 2007, The Commission on Health Care Facilities in the 21st Century (known as the Berger Commission) mandated closure of Bellevue Hospital and consolidation of Ellis and St. Clare’s Hospitals; this mandate never happened. Instead, Ellis Hospital took over St. Clare’s Hospital, Bellevue remained open, and an agreement was made by the state and St. Clare’s Corporation/Albany Catholic Diocese to make St. Clare’s Pensions whole; this never transpired.In the last 14 months, we have tirelessly made strong efforts to have our voices heard by telling our personal stories; appearing in TV interviews; received support from local newspapers, politicians, AARP and TV stations; held meetings; attended rallies and court appearances; had numerous meetings with Bishop Edward Scharfenberger and politicians, and many other efforts.Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Bishop Scharfenberger — let’s work together to make our pensions whole so we can have some dignity and security in our retirement.Patricia PangburnSchenectadyThe writer is a St. Clare’s pensioner. Criticism of Polimeni a sign of hypocrisyRegarding the Jan. 15 Gazette article “NAACP calls for city to employ diversity training:” It is beyond ridiculous that Schenectady City Councilman John Polimeni’s minor speech gaffe caused such a stir.Mr. Polimeni nearly used the term “colored” before immediately correcting his own wording. But his message was that the council is “very fortunate” to have diversity of race and gender.Why would he make this statement if he was racially biased?Several meeting attendees called for city officials to receive “diversity training,” despite diversity being the very thing Mr. Polimeni praised.Members of Schenectady NAACP addressing city officials by reading the teachings of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is completely illogical, as Dr. King’s agenda was the exact opposite of today’s “tolerant” left.If meeting attendees strictly followed Dr. King’s vision of abolishing recognition of race, the word in question wouldn’t have even come up, let alone the controversy that followed.The most blatant hypocrisy of all comes in the fact that the word “colored” is right in the name of the NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People). The term under scrutiny is used prominently by the organization scrutinizing it.Mr. Polimeni’s intentions were clear, but intentions no longer count for anything on the political left.David NosekGlenvilleSenators should have to explain voteThe impeachment trial of Donald Trump in the United States Senate is not about whether he held back military aid to the Ukraine for “dirt” on Joe Biden.The trial is not about whether he prevented key witnesses to the event from testifying.The overwhelming evidence indicates that he did both.Rather, the trial is about whether his actions, either one or both, meet the constitutional criteria for impeachment.Each senator has taken a sworn oath to being impartial. An impartial informed decision requires all the evidence to be examined.It’s a travesty of justice to deny new discoveries from being introduced.To make the trial result even more legitimate and accepted, every senator, not on a tribal basis but on an individual basis, should explain the reason for their vote on impeachment.Charles RiellyAltamontPoliticians must put end to sex traffickingNew York City is a major sex trafficking destination in the world.When will politicians stand up and put an end to this?Question: What sort of ‘man’ enjoys sex with a ‘girl’ (or could be a boy) who was gang-raped as part of the ‘on the job training?’Gov. Andrew Cuomo, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Congressman Paul Tonko, Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand are AWOL on this matter. Republicans do not exist on this issue either. They are spineless.Silence is golden for politicians on the sex trafficking matter. Why?Pride without honor exemplifies politicians in Washington and Albany. Congress turns a blind eye toward sex trafficking.They do have time to schedule hearings on cheating in professional sports while Albany worries about plastic bags. Silence of the lambs is how some ‘live.’Edmond DayRotterdamMore from The Daily Gazette:EDITORIAL: Find a way to get family members into nursing homesEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen?EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationGov.

Australia supports universal super with A$41bn tax money

first_imgIndustry experts are asking whether the 15% concessional tax rate applied by the government to all super savings is sustainable into the future.Actuarial firm Rice Warner said that lifting compulsory super contributions to 12% would not have much impact on the age pension for many years, and would save the budget only about 0.1% in lower age pension spending in the second half of this century.In contrast, extra super tax breaks from higher compulsory super would cost an average of 0.22% of GDP “through this century”.The Rice Warner view is contradicted by the Association of Superannuation Funds of Australia (ASFA), which estimates that spending on age pensions is A$9bn lower than it would be without compulsory super.To seek greater clarity – yet again – the Federal Government in 2019 commissioned another independent review into Australia’s retirement income system, chaired by Michael Callaghan, a former executive board member of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Australian treasury official.The government expects to receive the final report with recommendations in June.“Australia is in a period of low-wage growth [and] therefore an increase in the contribution rate is not realistic at this point in time”Lachlan Baird, Prime Super’s chief executive officerThe task of Callaghan’s panel is to look at the three pillars of the existing retirement income system – the age pension, compulsory superannuation and voluntary savings.The review is looking at the current state of the system and how it will perform in the future as Australians live longer and the population ages.Since last November, almost 260 submissions have been received, half of them from individuals aggrieved with what they see as serious inequity in the system, which they say feathers the nests of the wealthy and leaves the ordinary worker no better off.An extra 2.5% of wages and salaries would be more than A$23bn a year in additional contributions, based on Australia’s national wage bill of A$923bn for the year to September 2019.Australia’s rapidly-growing industry super funds sector, which managed A$747bn at the end of September 2019, argues that the increase is necessary to help Australians save for their retirement.Victoria’s Labor government stated that it should be 15%, to create an adequate retirement nest egg. But in its submission, Prime Super, a small, not-for-profit A$5bn fund for the agriculture and farming sector, breaks ranks with its industry peers.Prime Super’s chief executive officer Lachlan Baird, told the inquiry in its submission: “Although the current 9.5% compulsory rate is not enough to grow super savings for a comfortable retirement, Australia is in a period of low-wage growth (and) therefore an increase in the contribution rate is not realistic at this point in time.”CostsKevin Davis, a professor of finance at the University of Melbourne, who sat on a panel reviewing Australia’s financial system in 2014, said: “Our current tax and benefit treatment of retirement incomes is a mess.”Davis told the inquiry the cost of providing an age pension to an extra 1.4 million part-pensioners and one million current non-pensioners could cost the government A$30bn a year.This cost, he said, would be largely offset by increased budget revenue if the move to a universal pension was paired with the introduction of margin income tax rates on pension drawdowns from superannuation savings, which are currently tax free. The Australian government gave up A$41bn (€25bn) in tax revenue last year to support its universal superannuation scheme, which has accumulated some A$3trn.The government’s annual revenue loss through tax concessions to super will rise steadily as the pool grows in coming years. The impact of forgone revenue will accelerate as the next round of legislated increase in the super levy – or superannuation guarantee – kicks in from July 2021.It aims to gradually lift the employer contribution by 0.5% each year from the current 9.5% to 12% by 2025.But many are now questioning whether, in an era of low wage growth and a rising cost of living, particularly housing, workers can afford to have 12.5% of their salary locked up in super funds. Kevin Davis, a professor of finance at the University of MelbourneAustralia outlays A$50bn a year on age pensions. “Rather than fiddling at the edges, consideration of wholesale reform is warranted,” Davis said.Many Australians now retire on low super savings and/or choose to take their superannuation balance in lump sums to be spent as they wish, leaving them with insufficient funds to live out their retirement.Increasingly, welfare groups have highlighted the inequality of the current system, which has been shown to benefit the wealthy with large balances over the lowly-paid, with small balances.The inherent flaw of Australia’s super system is that it has become a legitimate tax shelter for a group of Australians, ranging from small business to the super wealthy.These individuals run self-managed super funds (SMSFs), which, critics say, in essence, should not be part of the super system as they are “tax management tools”. By channeling their money into SMSFs, they pay a 15% flat rate, and avoid having to pay the top marginal tax rate of 47%.This is one reason for the dramatic growth in self-managed super funds in Australia. Some 1.1 million SMSF members own assets totalling A$747bn – as much as the entire industry super fund sector and much more than corporate, public service or retail super sectors.last_img read more

Gold Coast vendors cashing in when selling at auction

first_imgRay White Broadbeach principal Mitch Palmer said auctions were the best way to get higher offers out of buyers.“You’re never going to get as many people in the same place at the same time as you are on auction day,” he said.“That competition that’s created between buyers is a much stronger motivator.”While Mr Palmer and Mr Henderson were strong advocates for auctions, both agreed it wasn’t a sales method that suited all properties and vendors. When selling your home a big question is, do you take the property to auction or put a price tag on it? This latest data might help you decide. Picture: Jerad WilliamsGOLD Coasters who sell their houses under the hammer tend to pocket hundreds of thousands of dollars more than those who have attached a price tag.Latest realestate.com.au data showed there was a difference of almost $340,000 between selling at auction and through a private treaty sale.Auctioned properties sold for an average of $878,295 while private treaty sales fetched an average of $539,503.The margin has increased in the past four years; the difference in 2015 was about $94,000.

Mourinho suggests dramatic new look happened due to a mistake: I fell asleep in barber’s chair

first_imgJose Mourinho has given a hilarious take on his dramatic new haircut, claiming his bald look was a mistake after he fell asleep in the barber’s chair. He declared it showed his side were “ready to go to war” and they went on to win nine games out of 11 to start the Premier League campaign. He also admitted to stealing Fernando Torres’ clippers to cut his hair himself during the 2012/13 season. Mourinho was in the dugout with his grey hair intact against Southampton last week (Image: AFP via Getty Images) He said: “I did it myself. I asked Fernando [Torres] to give me his machine and I did it myself in front of the mirror. “It is nice and it is cheap. In a couple of months I will have hair again. Some people can’t do it.” When he sported thinner hair at a press conference in 2014/15 as Manchester United manager, Mourinho denied it was due to his stress at Old Trafford. “I promise you I am fine – but I am not happy. I am not used to losing so many times but I am adapting to the challenge,” he said, as per the Belgravia Centre.

Hopefully, it will grow back again.” Mourinho famously opted for a number three crew-cut ahead of the 2006/07 season as Chelsea manager.last_img read more

Parker: Lampard under greater pressure at Chelsea than Solskjaer
