Extension of the biodiesel tax credit

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The bill included many issues of interest and impact to soybean farmers. However, it didn’t include an extension of the biodiesel tax credit that expired last year.The biodiesel tax credit and other expired temporary credits were not addressed in the comprehensive tax reform bill, but there is an effort to have a separate tax extender package included on another legislative vehicle that could pass before the end of 2017 or early in 2018. The Ohio Soybean Association and the American Soybean Association, as well as the National Biodiesel Board, are working to get the biodiesel tax credit attached to a revenue bill that might be moving through Congress.Soybean farmers have played a leading role in establishing and developing the biodiesel industry. From the first investments made by the soybean industry, biodiesel has grown into a domestic market approaching 3 billion gallons.last_img read more

IT Poll: Does Your Company Use a Dedicated Idea Management Tool?

first_imgRon Shulkin, VP of the Americas at CogniStreamer, recently wrote a blog post titled “Trust me: You do NOT want to go through your company’s idea list manually.” Shulkin makes the case against using a basic electronic idea box for ideation, or shoehorning ideas into existing tools, instead of an application dedicated to managing ideas.“Without a proper mechanism for automatic idea promotion, someone is going to end up with a thousand ideas on their desk and have to filter them manually,” Shulkin writes. “They’ll have to read them all, sort through them, put them into categories, combine similar ones, somehow score them, rank them and decide which ones are the best.” The result is that the person in charge of filtering through all these ideas won’t be able to do a very good job, good ideas won’t be implemented and people will be discouraged from submitting ideas.How do you gather ideas at work? Are you using an idea management platform, dropping ideas into a box, or dealing with it all through e-mail or a forum? 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now IT + Project Management: A Love Affair klint finley Tags:#enterprise#Products Related Posts Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… For more on the case for idea management, check out Shulkin’s article “Is now the time for idea management?“ Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more

Home Ministry denies recommending Dhyan Chand’s name for Bharat Ratna

first_imgDhyan Chand The Home Ministry on Tuesday denied that it had recommended hockey legend Dhyan Chand’s name for the Bharat Ratna. “There is no discussion regarding this in the government. The stories in media have no basis,” Union minister Venkaiah Naidu said.Earlier in the day, there were reports that the Sports Ministry has recommended the hockey legend’s name for India’s highest honour.According to sources in the PMO, suggestions for various names have come in while the final decision is yet to be taken.Dhyan Chand had won three Olympic gold medals for hockey for India between 1928 and 1936. The Manmohan Singh-led UPA government made the last minute, but vital, change to ignore hockey wizard Dhyan Chand for the Bharat Ratna by replacing the hockey great’s candidature with that of cricket legend Sachin Tendulkar, who retired from Test cricket last year.The dishonour meted out to Chand is visible in the mail trail, accessed by Headlines Today, involving the Prime Minister’s Office which show how the government snubbed Dhyan Chand to favour Sachin, no doubt two greats.On July 16 last year, the then Sports Minister Jitendra Singh recommended the hockey legend’s name for the Bharat Ratna which was acknowledged by former PM Manmohan Singh nine days later. The internal PMO note reveals Dhyan Chand’s name was making rounds for the award till early August 2013. This was possible due to an amendment in 2011 to the law which made sportspersons eligible for the country’s highest honour.last_img read more
