  • Governor Cuomo Signs Legislation to Exempt Sales and Use Taxes on Feminine Hygiene Products

    New York State ^ | 7/21/16 | New York State
    TOP Governor Cuomo Signs Legislation to Exempt... SHARE Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today signed legislation that eliminates sales tax on feminine hygiene products. The bill (A.7555-A/S.7838) exempts these products from local and State sales tax. “This is a regressive tax on essential products that women have had to pay for far too long and lifting it is a matter of social and economic justice,” Governor Cuomo said. “I commend Assemblywoman Rosenthal and Senator Serino on their strong advocacy and for hard work in passing this important legislation.” Feminine hygiene products have been taxable since the state sales tax was first...

    Minister for Social Protection Leo Varadkar has thrown his political weight behind indexing welfare payments to inflation. Speaking at MacGill Summer School in Donegal, the Dublin TD struck a socially aware tone throughout his speech — referring to the period of economic downturn as “Ireland’s lost decade” and bemoaning a stalling in living standards. “Were it not for social welfare payments over half of the country would be at risk of poverty,” he said, before he emphasized the need to “protect the value of these payments now and into the future”. “I believe this can best be done by indexing...

    Divorced people are much more likely to be admitted to hospital for psychiatric illness than their single, married or widowed counterparts, according to new figures from the Health Research Board. The Activities of Irish Psychiatric Units and Hospitals 2015 report shows that 17,860 people were admitted to hospital for psychiatric care last year, a small increase from 17,797 in 2014. Overall, the numbers of new cases continues to rise, both year-on-year and over a 10-year period.

    On July 22, 2011, 77 people were killed in two bloody attacks in Norway. The terrorist Anders Behring Breivik first set off a car bomb in the government quarter of central Oslo. The bomb killed eight people and did substantial material damage. Breivik then drove out of Oslo with another car. Later that afternoon he arrived via ferry at the island of Utřya, situated some distance outside the municipality of Oslo. Members of the Workers’ Youth League (AUF), the youth organization of the Norwegian Labour Party, used the island for their annual summer camp. In a grotesque shooting spree, Breivik...

    Secretary of State John Kerry said in Vienna on Friday that air conditioners and refrigerators are as big of a threat to life as the threat of terrorism posed by groups like the Islamic State. The Washington Examiner reported that Kerry was in Vienna to amend the 1987 Montreal Protocol that would phase out hydrofluorocarbons, or HFCs, from basic household and commercial appliances like air conditioners, refrigerators, and inhalers. “As we were working together on the challenge of [ISIS] and terrorism,” Kerry said. “It’s hard for some people to grasp it, but what we–you–are doing here right now is of...

    CLEVELAND — Exactly 350 days after Donald Trump stood in Quicken Loans Arena at the first presidential debate and refused to endorse the eventual Republican nominee if it wasn't him, he accepted that same Republican Party’s nomination — and vowed to keep winning all the way to the White House. In the biggest address of his unlikely, divisive and meteoric political career, Trump on Thursday night sought to bring together a party that he helped fracture in an ugly primary that left divisions that were apparent all the way through a tumultuous four days in Cleveland.

Spreading his hands in blessing, Martens then baptizes the man "in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost." Mohammed is now Martin — no longer Muslim, but Christian. Zonoobi, a carpenter from the Iranian city of Shiraz, arrived in Germany with his wife and two children five months ago. He...

And when the subject does come up between doctors and kids, the average conversation lasts less than 40 seconds, the group says in a new report.

If this were a typical presidential election, the logical first step would be to pick the most likely combination of states to put the Trump campaign over the 270 threshold. Then you would spend all of your time, energy and resources targeting the battleground states. It has worked...

    Any hopes that the nation’s first black president could uplift the nation’s black underclass went up in smoke Sunday when Barack Obama doubled down on his blaming of America’s police for the recent cop massacres that amount, as Heather Mac Donald rightly says, to a war on cops. I argued two decades ago in The Dream and the Nightmare that changes in elite culture during the 1960s had a catastrophic effect on the most disadvantaged Americans in ghetto neighborhoods. That decade’s sexual revolution removed the stigma from out-of-wedlock pregnancy. An explosion of inner-city illegitimacy ensued, with between 70 and 90...

Romney, for example, won about two thirds of all precincts nationwide and probably got in the range of 55% of the verifiable vote, but lost the election to nearly unanimous Obama support from nearly 100% turnout of potentially eligible voters in inner city precincts in key states like Ohio, where the certainty of being accused of racism for even thinking you couldn't get that level of turnout for a week of free pizza and beer prevented any form of verification....

The updates are part of a broader overhaul of California's history and social science curriculum. During four hours of public testimony,...
