Why Jean Rony matters? “Near Bahamian” – “Dreamer”=” what’s the difference?

We have seen the sad unfolding drama of Jean Rony vs. the Commonwealth of the Bahamas. It is a sad story with no real winners. Rony was brought to and born in a country, by no act or omission of his own, by parents who were desperate to escape the dire poverty of Haiti. Years later he finds himself returned to the Bahamas and detained again for an offence he did not commit…being born and reared in a country in which he has grown; a country which was not the home of his forebears. The offence is not known to Bahamian Law but it is a serious offence nonetheless. It carries with it the burdens of too many decades, the indifference of too many politicians and the growing indignation of perhaps thousands of “near Bahamians” who sit idly by dreaming of a day on which the family of those who fashion themselves as full citizens of the Bahamas will become regularised.

The ubiquity of brand content makes the fight for ever-decreasing attention spans only tougher as the number of communications platforms multiplies. It’s enough to make traditional forms of messaging, like the press release, obsolete.

Beskatning af donation til valgkampagne

Et hvilket som helst bidrag til en kandidat givet af en privatperson eller en virksomhed skal beskattes hos den pågældende kandidat.

Den 21. november 2017 er der kommunalvalg. Der afholdes kommunalvalg i Danmark hvert 4. år. Det sidste folketingsvalg blev afholdt 18. juni 2015. Fælles for både folketingsvalg og kommunalvalg er, at der er en række kandidater, der lader sig opstille, og som bruger en ikke uvæsentlig mængde ressourcer på at ”markedsføre” sig selv med henblik på at blive valgt ind de respektive steder.

More signs that credit unions will continue to buy small banks

An Atlanta-based credit union’s move this month to buy a community bank would mark a first-of-its-kind acquisition in Georgia. But a leading M&A adviser who worked on that deal says increasingly more credit unions are looking to acquire banks, and he expects more such deals to be announced in Georgia and nationally this year and next. Georgia’s Own CU agreed to acquire Fayetteville, Ga.-based State Bank of Georgia, which has about $95 million in assets and which gives the buyer, with its nearly $2.3 billion in assets, added scale, a stronger presence in suburban Atlanta, and proven lending talent — the seller said all of its staff will join Georgia’s Own. A purchase price was not made public.
