first_imgWASHINGTON – President Donald Trump suggested Saturday he may be willing to negotiate changes to a significant portion of the tax overhaul, the corporate tax rate, injecting an element of uncertainty into the tax plan only hours after it cleared the Senate.Trump told reporters at the White House before a trip to New York City that he would consider setting the corporate tax rate at 22 per cent, compared to a 20 per cent rate that he has pushed for with House and Senate Republicans during the fall.Pointing to expected talks between House and Senate negotiators this month, Trump predicted “something beautiful is going to come out of that mixer” and the business tax would come “all the way down from 35 to 20. It could be 22 when it comes out, but it could also be 20. We’ll see what ultimately comes out.”Trump spoke after the Senate approved a $1.5 trillion tax bill early Saturday that would rewrite the nation’s tax code, cut individual rates and slash the corporate tax rate from 35 per cent to 20 per cent beginning in 2019. If enacted, the bill would provide the most sweeping changes to the tax system in three decades and help Trump deliver the first major legislative win of his presidency.Trump’s suggestion of a higher corporate tax rate than what has been included in legislation approved by the House and Senate represented an about-face after the president and administration officials maintained a hard line that a corporate rate higher than 20 per cent was a nonstarter.Vice-President Mike Pence said in a speech to the Tax Foundation in mid-November that the administration would “cut the corporate tax rate from one of the highest in the developed world down to 20 per cent — and not a penny more.”Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who accompanied Trump to New York for fundraisers on Saturday, said in September that the 20 per cent corporate rate was “not negotiable.”The shift perplexed some Republicans. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tried to pare back the proposed cut in corporate tax rates to 20.94 per cent to provide a more generous increase in the child tax credit. But he was rebuffed.“Senate leaders & White House fought hard to defeat expanded #ChildTaxCredit b/c of 20.94% rate but now 22% is ok?” Rubio tweeted Saturday.White House officials did not immediately respond to questions seeking clarity on Trump’s views of the proposed corporate tax rate.Senate and House Republicans now head into a new phase of seeking to reconcile differences in the legislation passed by both chambers, a behind-closed-doors process that could move quickly. Trump has said he wants to sign the tax package into law before Christmas.Republicans have pointed to the tax bill as crucial to retaining its House and Senate majorities in next year’s midterm elections. Democrats have said the bill will solely help the wealthy and corporations at the expense of more modest-earning workers.Democrats have noted that while the corporate tax rates would be permanently reduced under the plan, it would only offer temporary tax cuts to individuals, lasting until 2026.__On Twitter follow Ken Thomas at @KThomasDC.last_img read more

“It is important that the United Nations system and subregional, regional and international partners work together to support a responsible, legitimate and effective State, operating under the rule of law and able to provide security, essential services and economic opportunities to its people,” the report says. Jose Ramos Horta, Special Representative for the Secretary-General and head of the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS), who led an assessment of the Office’s mandate that was reflected in the text, today told the Security Council that if appropriate support is given towards more pro-active preventive diplomacy programmes, “Guinea-Bissau could become a shining example of a success story.” Soldiers in Guinea-Bissau – a West African country with a history of coups, misrule and political instability since it gained independence from Portugal in 1974 – seized power on 12 April 2012.The coup d’etat came ahead of a presidential run-off election that was slated for 22 April between Carlos Gomes Júnior and a former President, Kumba Yala, prompting calls from the international community for a return to civilian rule. According to the Secretary-General’s recommendations, the first phase of the restoration of constitutional order and stability would culminate in presidential and legislative elections, and focus on creating “a political environment built on confidence and non-interference in the electoral process.”“It is my humble view that the problem of Guinea-Bissau should be squarely placed at the feet of the political elite who have failed their people for almost four decades,” Mr. Ramos-Horta told the 15-member Council. He added that it was “imperative” that the Security Council and the UN Member States support Guinea-Bissau towards the elections. He also urged the Council to give “serious consideration” to the Government’s request that the UN take leadership in the electoral process “so as to avoid possible elections-related disputes or violence.”Speaking earlier today to UN Radio, Mr. Ramos-Horta said the UN has been working with the African Union and other partners to see how to assist Guinea-Bissau “fast track the process of transition into elections” which he hopes will be held by November. He also praised the African Union, which recently said it could reinstate the country’s membership after barring its participation in the regional bloc a week after military leaders seized power.The second phase proposed by the Secretary-General, which would conclude at the end of the term of the next elected Government, should focus on post-election stability, on strengthening State and democratic governance institutions – notably security, justice and defence – and on the functioning of both central and local State structures.Addressing the Security Council, Mr. Ramos-Horta urged the international community to provide support for post-election rebuilding of the key institutions of the State, including through collocation of international experts for a period up to five years. He also urged a “major re-thinking” of the Defence Forces “based on a sober analysis of the security needs of the country and adjusted to the financial resources available.” While the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) is taking the lead in this process, Mr. Ramos-Horta noted that there are other partners outside the region who are “ready to contribute towards a new national army that is more professional, imbued with a democratic culture, smaller, less costly and yet more effective.” Among other top priorities in the country, the Secretary-General highlighted the negative impact of transnational organized crime and drug trafficking on peace, stability and development efforts in Guinea-Bissau.In his briefing, Mr. Ramos-Horta called for mobilization of “robust financial and human resources” to assist the authorities in Guinea-Bissau and the entire chain of handling of drugs from source countries through to consumption countries to face this challenge.” In recent weeks, the US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) assisted with the arrest of former navy chief, Bubo Na Tchuto, and an indictment was put out for Guinea-Bissau’s Armed Forces Chief of General Staff, General Antonio Indija. Mr. Ramos-Horta called these events a “turning point” in the fight against drug trafficking.Again speaking to UN Radio, Mr. Ramos-Horta said he supported efforts of countries such as the United States to “forcefully intervene” to curb the drug trade and noted that if a criminal gang uses Guinea-Bissau as transit point, “sooner or later, you will have someone, in this case the Americans, landing on your shores and taking action.” He also gave a serious warning to people involved in the business to “start clearing everything, cooperating with authorities.” The current mandate of UNIOGBIS, which was established in 2010 to replace the previous peacebuilding support office known as UNOGBIS, which in turn was put in place in 1999 after an 11-month civil war, expires later this month. read more

first_img Comments Share your voice Facebook Twitter 2 A group of websites and social media accounts linked to Russia or far-right groups is spreading misinformation and encouraging political discord just weeks ahead of the key elections in the European Union, The New York Times reported Sunday.The campaign shares many of the same characteristics used in previous Russian attacks, including Russia’s interference with the 2016 US elections, EU investigators tell the Times. Groups in Italy and German bear the same electronic signature as pro-Kremlin websites or share servers used by the Russian hackers who broke into the Democratic National Committee.Disinformation has long been a part of Russia’s foreign policy strategy, and social media has allowed the trolling effort to expand on a viral scale. In 2017, Facebook revealed it found evidence that Russians used the social network to meddle in the 2016 US presidential election and sowed discord among Americans.US intelligence agencies have warned Congress that these campaigns will continue in the future. But determining Russia’s level of involvement is difficult as several copycats on the far right are echoing Kremlin talking points, investigators say.EU investigators believe networks of Facebook and Twitter accounts have been spreading false and divisive stories about the EU, NATO and immigrants, among other issues. An analysis prepared for the Senate found that Russia’s disinformation campaign before the 2016 election used every major social media platform, including Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, to try to sow the seeds of political discord among Americans.Earlier this month, Facebook said it had removed 118 fake accounts, pages and groups from Russia that posted content about politics in Ukraine and other countries in Europe. Facebook has also opened a new operations center in Ireland to combat fake news ahead of the EU parliamentary elections. The current campaign uses messages taken directly from Russian news media, the Times reported, but investigators haven’t publicly accused the Kremlin of supporting a specific candidate. Investigators believe millions of people have been exposed to the propaganda material.Representatives for Facebook and Twitter didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

first_imgThe birefringent dielectric metasurfaces were designed using silicon nanofins on top of a glass substrate. To achieve the desired phase shifts, 2-D parameter optimization was conducted using a rigorous coupled wave analysis (RCWA) method. The RCWA semi-analytical method is typically applied in computational electromagnetics to solve scattering from periodic dielectric structures. The length L and width W of the nanofin were in the range of 80 to 280 nm, height at 600 nm and period size P at 400 nm. The values were carefully selected to ensure the phase of the output light eliminated any undesired orders of diffraction. For the simulation, the nanofin was placed on a glass substrate and subjected to a fixed wavelength of incident light at 800 nm. Simulation results indicated the amplitude of transmission for most nanofins with diverse cross-sections were beyond 90 percent efficiency. The scientists determined orientation angles of the nanofins using equations derived in the study to experimentally demonstrate multichannel polarization multiplexing. Holography is a powerful tool that can reconstruct wavefronts of light and combine the fundamental wave properties of amplitude, phase, polarization, wave vector and frequency. Smart multiplexing techniques (multiple signal integration) together with metasurface designs are currently in high demand to explore the capacity to engineer information storage systems and enhance optical encryption security using such metasurface holograms. The scientists first derived a multiplexing algorithm to support the dynamic vectorial holographic display and encryption process. By using the correct polarization keys, the receiver could obtain the exact information delivered. By increasing the complexity of such images, even higher flexibility was obtained alongside detailed analysis of the reconstructed vectorial image properties. Since the device containing metasurfaces is compact in size, in practice, it can be easily transported with encoded information. , Nature Communications To pattern the design of interest, Zhao et al. engineered several dielectric silicon metasurfaces on top of a glass substrate using plasma etching, followed by electron beam lithography. The metasurfaces were composed of 1000 x 1000 nanofins, i.e. nanostructures with the ability to augment heat transfer via surface area enhancement and liquid-solid-interactions. The researchers studied two schemes of multiple polarization channels; with or without rotation using the birefringent dielectric metasurfaces—to realize the holograms.

Three-dimensional optical holography using a plasmonic metasurface, Nature Communications (2013). DOI: 10.1038/ncomms3808 Journal information: Light: Science & Applications Holography based on metasurfaces is a promising candidate for applications in optical displays/storage with enormous information bearing capacity alongside a large field of view compared to traditional methods. To practically realize metasurface holograms, holographic profiles should be encoded on ultrathin nanostructures that possess strong light-matter interactions (plasmonic interactions) in an ultrashort distance. Metasurfaces can control light and acoustic waves in a manner not seen in nature to provide a flexible and compact platform and realize a variety of vectorial holograms, with high dimensional information that surpass the limits of liquid crystals or optical photoresists. Among the existing techniques employed to achieve highly desired optical properties, polarization multiplexing (multiple signal integration) is an attractive method. The strong cross-talk associated with such platforms can, however, be prevented with birefringent metasurfaces (two-dimensional surfaces with two different refractive indices) composed of a single meta-atom per unit-cell for optimized polarization multiplexing.Nevertheless, the full capacity of all polarization channels remains to be explored for improved information storage capacity within metasurface holograms and in holographic optical devices. In a recent study, Ruizhe Zhao and co-workers demonstrated a new method to realize multichannel vectorial holography for dynamic display and high-security applications. In the study, birefringent metasurfaces were explored to control polarization channels and process very different information through rotation. The reconstructed vectorial images could be switched from one form to another with negligible cross-talk by selecting a combination of input/output polarization states. The results are now published in Light: Science & Applications. The scientists were able to design and construct more complex multiplexing functionalities with 12 channels using the same principles of design thereafter. The vectorial images were viewed as holographic reconstructions with the input/output polarization combinations developed as proposed. The technique could also be used to encrypt different images at the same spatial location. In encryption, such superposition can convey a different meaning on reconstruction. As an example, the scientists chose the image of a die with six representative surfaces, and by using different combinations of input/output polarization states, encoded up to six images for viewing.The multiplexing algorithm derived in the study aided the dynamic vectorial holographic display and the encryption of images encoded on birefringent dielectric metasurfaces. By using the correct polarization keys, a receiver could obtain the exact information delivered. Higher flexibility could be obtained by increasing the complexity of the image and changing the medium of encryption to titanium dioxide (TiO2) or silicon nitride (SiN). The correct polarization combination secured the information for enhanced complexity during decryption.The multichannel hologram maintained a relatively large working bandwidth since the reconstructed images could be observed away from the designed wavelength of 800 nm. The study established a design and engineering technique that combined birefringent properties of simple nanofins used as the building blocks, with extra-design freedom of rotation matrix and smart multiplexing algorithms. The results enabled high-dimensional multichannel polarization multiplexed holograms, with up to 12 polarization channels. In this way, efficient light-based encryption and integrated multichannel holographic display techniques can pave the way for advanced communication in high security applications.

Credit: Light: Science & Applications, doi: 10.1038/s41377-018-0091-0. © 2018 Science X Network For optical characterization of the metasurface holograms, Zhao et al. used an experimental setup. The magnifying ratio and numerical aperture of the objective lens were carefully chosen to collect all the diffraction light from the sample and reconstruct holographic images in the Fourier plane. The scientists used a second objective/lens to capture the Fourier plane on a CCD camera. They also separately observed two scanning electron microscopy images of the samples with or without rotation to characterize the engineered surface.As a proof-of-principle, using the metasurfaces, Zhao et al. constructed holographic images of a cartoon tiger and a snowman that appeared with high fidelity and high resolution when illuminated by x-polarized light. When the incident light was switched to y-polarization, the reconstructed images changed to a teapot and a teacup. In this experiment, only two polarization channels were available in the setup, with both pairs of the holographic images reconstructed and made to disappear simultaneously by rotating the polarizer behind the sample.

first_imgReport: FHA to Seek Treasury Draw Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Bailouts FHA Investors Lenders & Servicers Mortgage Insurance Politics Service Providers 2013-09-26 Tory Barringer Share *_[Updated to include a statement from the Center for Responsible Lending.]_*Despite efforts to shore up its insurance fund, the “”Federal Housing Administration””: (FHA) is “”likely”” to seek a Treasury draw of nearly $1 billion to help cover losses from bad loans.[IMAGE]””Sources familiar with the matter”” told “”_Reuters_””: Wednesday the agency may need to take a bailout for the first time in its history. While no definitive numbers were given, the White House “”predicted in its budget””: earlier this year that FHA may need up to $943 million.A spokesperson for HUD did not immediately return a request for comment.FHA’s financial troubles came to light “”last year””:, when an actuarial report revealed that losses on vintage loans from 2005-2008–from the height of the bubble to about the time it burst–had brought the government insurer’s capital ratio to -1.44 percent, well below the required 2 percent ratio required for its insurance fund.[COLUMN_BREAK]Since then, HUD officials have worked to reform FHA’s practices and strengthen its financial standing, while policymakers in the Senate have “”done the same””: lawmakers were quick to denounce the possible bailout, with “”Sen. David Vitter””: (R-Louisiana) one of the most vocal.””I’m not one to say ‘I told you so,’ but geez. The FHA has been going down an irresponsible path for years, from their drastic lack of required capital to secret stress tests,”” Vitter said. “”Instead of making their funds responsibly, and making appropriate reforms, FHA prefers to lean on taxpayers to bail them out, and enough is enough.””Vitter went on to call for the Senate to take up measures to further reform the agency and protect taxpayers “”against [FHA’s] mismanagement.”” The senator’s suggested reforms include an early term delinquency review, a lifetime ban on additional FHA-backed loans for borrowers with two foreclosures, and a capital reserve requirement for its new multifamily program.On the other hand, FHA’s defenders lay the blame at the feet of the same lawmakers that criticized the agency.├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£The proposed draw from the U.S. Treasury Department would not have been needed if Congress had not prevented FHA from clamping down on fraudulent seller-funded down payment loans, as it tried to do,├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬Ø the “”Center for Responsible Lending””: (CRL) said in a statement, noting that recent increases in pricing and tighter underwriting standards–ideas implemented by FHA itself–have ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├àÔÇ£led recent loans to perform extremely well.├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├é┬Øcenter_img September 26, 2013 469 Views in Governmentlast_img read more
