Forecast for Indiana’s two-year budget better than lawmakers expected

first_imgIndianaLocalNews Google+ Facebook Twitter Pinterest Twitter Forecast for Indiana’s two-year budget better than lawmakers expected WhatsApp By Charles Edward (Own work) [CC BY-SA 3.0 or GFDL], via Wikimedia Commons The outlook for Indiana’s next two-year budget is better than legislators expected, but it’s still going to be tight.Forecasters expect Indiana to collect about as much in taxes as they thought they’d have for the current budget, before the pandemic took a giant bite out of the economy.What little increase there is will be eaten up by higher Medicaid costs, leaving about $125 million less over two years to spend on everything else.Senate Appropriations Chairman Ryan Mishler (R-Bremen) says the first year of the two-year budget will be essentially flat before things loosen up a little in the second year, with a projected three-percent increase.House Ways and Means Chairman Tim Brown (R-Crawfordsville) says there are a lot of wild cards, including whether the state will get more assistance from the federal government and how much.

Prince Estate Announces ‘Piano & A Microphone 1983’ LP, Shares First Unheard Track [Listen]

first_imgToday would have been Prince‘s 60th birthday. In celebration of the Purple One’s life and endless contributions to music, the Prince estate announced a new album of previously unreleased home recordings, dubbed Piano & A Microphone 1983–due out September 21, 2018. The nine-track LP includes cassette recordings that Prince made at his piano at his Kiowa Trail in Chanhassen, Minnesota. The extremely intimate version of Prince is previewed in today’s first track release, a cover of the 19th century spiritual, “Mary Don’t You Weep”, which will also appear during the end credits of Spike Lee‘s upcoming movie, BlacKkKlansman.Much of Piano and a Microphone 1983 will feature Prince in his most intimate form, working through future classics like “Purple Rain”, “17 Days”, “Strange Relationship” and “International Love”, as well as a cover of Joni Mitchell‘s “A Case of You.”During the final year of his life, in 2016, Prince embarked on a “Piano & A Microphone” tour, in which the Purple One performed as a one-man show. The tour was of complete legendary status, supporting Prince in his most rare form. It was during this tour that his health complications started to become public, and that fans started to worry that the mystical musician was in danger. He died on April 21, 2016 from an accidental overdose of fentanyl at the age of 57.“This raw, intimate recording, which took place at the start of Prince’s career right before he achieved international stardom, is similar in format to the Piano & A Microphone Tour that he ended his career with in 2016,” Prince Estate entertainment adviser Troy Carter said in a statement. “The Estate is excited to be able to give fans a glimpse of his evolution and show how his career ultimately came full circle with just him and his piano.”According to Billboard, the album cover features a rare image of Prince backstage during the 1999 tour, taken by Allen Beaulieu, who worked closely with Prince from 1979-1984.The Deluxe version of Piano and a Microphone 1983 is set to include a 12″ booklet with new liner notes from Prince’s engineer, Don Batts, as well as never-before-seen candid photos of the Purple One. Fans who pre-order the digital download will get an instant download of “Mary Don’t You Weep,” which you can listen to below:<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>Piano & A Microphone 1983 Tracklisting:“17 Days”“Purple Rain”“A Case Of You”“Mary Don’t You Weep”“Strange Relationship”“International Lover”“Wednesday”“Cold Coffee & Cocaine”“Why The Butterflies”last_img read more

U.S. Coal Exec Sees Market Glut Continuing

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享SNL:“When I look at the market right now … it’s a difficult and challenging market environment,” Foresight President and CEO Robert Moore said on an earnings call. “It continues to be. It has been, and I believe that it will continue to be.”Moore said that while there has been a reduction in utility inventories, it has not been at the levels that would have occurred if there had been a hotter summer. He also blamed the difficulties on a “lack of discipline” among coal producers.“There’s still too many tons in the market, and we continue to see markets being depressed as a result of that.”Moore said the oversupply of thermal coal is putting a cap on prices even as utility stockpiles have declined.

The Navies of the Americas Meet in Mexico to Improve Hemispheric Security

first_img A naval summit organized by the Mexican Secretariat of the Navy (Semar) sought to improve security in the Americas, by means of joint strategies and operations targeting organized crime and aid in the event of natural disasters. According to Semar, at the inauguration of the 25th edition of the Inter-American Naval Conference (IANC) in Cancún, Mexico, in late May, the Mexican secretary of the Navy, Vice Admiral Mariano Saynez, stressed the need to implement standardized operational procedures that can strengthen the exchange of information and cooperation in the area of maritime security. At the hemispheric naval meeting, the participants “will seek to improve the mechanisms of interoperability, with the aim of establishing security and peace among nations, as well as becoming familiar with the maritime environment, with a view toward offering humanitarian assistance,” a Semar statement indicated prior to the event. The conference’s central theme addressed inter-American maritime security “with a view toward offering humanitarian assistance in cases and areas of disaster or emergency, to countries that may find themselves impacted by the effects of some kind of natural phenomenon.” The objective is “to contribute to perfecting the systems of cooperation at the hemispheric level, through the exchange of knowledge, to promote solidarity in the hemisphere,” Semar added. The heads of the navies of Bolivia, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and Uruguay participated in the meeting, as well as the heads of the general staffs of Argentina, Honduras, Panama, and Venezuela. Representatives of the U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), the secretariat of the Inter-American Defense Board, and the Inter-American Naval Communications Network also attended, among other participants. This is the first time that Mexico has hosted the Inter-American Naval Conference, created in 1959 to promote contacts among the navies of the hemisphere and exchange ideas and knowledge about maritime affairs. Among the joint operations currently being conducted, specifically in the fight against drug trafficking, Operation Martillo stands out. SOUTHCOM is participating in this extensive anti-drug and anti-organized-crime operation, which is underway in Central American waters and in which forces from 13 European and Western Hemisphere countries are taking part.

You’re feeling more set in your career. Or maybe you’re in the middle of a reinvention because you finally have the resources to do so.

Basically, you’re experiencing the types of changes that should require you to revisit your finances and seek guidance.Here are some milestones to aim for:1. Max out your retirement contributions: Ramping up retirement savings now is especially important if you feel as if you didn’t save enough earlier in your career, says Christopher Girbes-Pierce, a financial adviser based in Santa Monica, Calif. “Retirement doesn’t feel nearly as far away as it did in your 20s and 30s,” he says.If you aren’t already making the maximum contribution into your retirement account (for 2015, you can contribute a maximum of $18,000 to your 401(k) plan), now is the time to establish the habit, Girbes-Pierce says. The task may be more feasible in your 40s, a time when you may be nearing your peak earnings, he says. continue reading »last_img read more
