I think it is time to take a serious look at the whole business rates regime and decide if this is a business taxation system that is still fit for purpose given all the other pressures that there are on business and given the changing nature of business in Scotland.

And remember about 4/5 of Scottish businesses were not helped today, many of them are also facing quite substantial increases. But what would you propose as an alternative? I think we have to take a serious look at the whole review process.

That is on top of an extra £185 million he found three weeks ago to buy off the Greens so I think the obvious question is how much more money has Derek Mackay got squirreled away? He must have the fattest sofa in the country. Every time he puts his hand between the cushions he comes up with a wad of extra cash. So if Derek Mackay can find £42 million today and could find £185 million three weeks ago I think there is a serious conversation to be had with him about what additional resources might be found to help those businesses who were not helped today.

Louis Fed report: “Real GDP growth fell and leveled off in the mid-1970s, then started falling again in the mid-2000s” . What happened during that 30-year period was that we started printing and borrowing with abandon, making both those activities much easier while we did, until the debt load overwhelmed even our widest fantasies ten years ago. And we’ve never recovered from that, if that was not obvious yet. Nor will we. As the first graph below shows, there was still growth post-Gold Standard but the rate of growth fell and then “leveled off”, only to fall more after, to a point where Real GDP per Capita is presently 0.5% or so -little more than a margin error-. How one would want to combine that with talk of an economic recovery is hard to see. In fact, such talk should be under serious scrutiny by now. Still, the numbers remain positive, you say.

It's estimated there are almost 30,000 carers in Scotland who are under 18, and more than a quarter of them are carrying out their duties alone. Whilst many are proud of their role as young carers, others suffer serious stress, isolation and depression.

That is not the case here. This is a bit of fun, with me being hungry. The reserve goalkeeper, part groundsman, part volunteer cheerleader at Sutton, he became a focal point of the joyous FA Cup run, a celebrity, but this afternoon it got serious, the UK gambling commission, concerned about novelty bets, said: the Football Association equally unamused: in light of all this, Sutton asked when sure to resign, and he did.

IF there is one thing worse than simply losing a match, it is suffering a defeat and losing a couple of your players into the bargain. There is no doubt that the injuries sustained against France which have ruled Greig Laidlaw and Josh Strauss out of the rest of the Six Nations Championship have come as a serious blow to the Scotland squad, with the loss of Laidlaw being doubly problematic as he was captain in addition to holding down a starting place.

As a result, Peña Nieto and others can’t seem to simply submit to Trump’s agenda. “The body politic in Mexico reacts negatively to the negative rhetoric coming out of this White House,” said Ted Piccone, a Latin America expert at the Brookings Institution. He added that the Trump administration also threatened to undo decades worth of effort to build what was once a far less friendly U.S.-Mexico relationship. On the defense front, for instance, the countries basically had no relationship as recently as the mid-1990s, Piccone said. “We’ve come a long way and there’s now serious turbulence,” he said. “A lot of agencies across the U.S. government want to preserve the good things about the cooperation. I think cooler heads will prevail.” Eli Stokols and Gabriel Debenedetti contributed to this report.

Here, this says that anyone found anywhere within two years of entering the US is eligible for expedited deportation. The Obama administration also focused on workers convicted of serious crimes. But this Donald Trump memorandum says it is not just people who have committed crimes, but people charged with crimes, people who have committed offences that they could be charged with, in addition to people who have abused public benefits or anyone that immigration officials deemed a threat to national or public safety.

The federal courtssystem for electronic filing and access to case dockets contains a serious security flaw that could be exploited by hackers, according to a group devoted to making judicial records available for free on the internet. The Free Law Project disclosed the existence of the security issue publicly in a blog post Monday afternoon but did not provide details about the problem with the online Public Access to Court Electronic Records/Electronic Court Filing system, better known to lawyers, journalists and court personnel as PACER/ECF. “We run a service that helps academics and journalists gather content from PACER,” the project’s Michael Lissner said in a statement Tuesday. “As part of this work, we discovered a major vulnerability that we reported directly to the Administrative Office of the Courts. We hope they’ll urgently provide a fix for this issue so that PACER/ECF can be a secure tool for its many users.

The high-pitched clicking sound is irritating, but it isn't as serious as some of the other issues MacBook Pro owners have been having with the keyboard. In some cases, certain keys on the MacBook Pro miss clicks, enter double letters, or refuse to respond at all, a problem that we here at MacRumors have also experienced. MacRumors reader rroch describes the problem: My 2016 15'' MacBook Pro arrived yesterday (as one of the first). 63 of the 64 keys work fine. But the i-key most of the time types the letter twice. I suggest you test out your keyboard thoroughly. With auto-correct it can be easy to think it works. However, my password contains the letter i, and I quickly became super frustrated not being able to get my password right (come to think about it, maybe that's why they added Touch ID , so you don't need the keyboard for passwords). So take a document, turn off auto-correct, and check all the keys.

It was here NRK journalist Anders Magnus was attacked with stones last spring, and here the police never go in the evenings without reinforcements from other patrols according to Dabladet . A freelancer the newspaper spoke to, described the situation as serious. I've been in some turmoil, but this is something extra. It looks like a war zone here , he was quoted as saying. Freelance photographer Janne Åkesson has also been at the site Monday night and early Tuesday. They threw stones at police and police fired warning shots. I got out when it was at its worst, he said to Dagbladet. He added that there were many youths with hoods and hats on. It was very chaotic. I have seen much in Rinkeby: they burn cars all the time unfortunately this was beyond the ordinary...

And he's not alone. In the last couple of months a facility in Utah is now under a 30-year exclusion, and a New York physician is now excluded from Medicare for five years. These penalties and exclusions not only affect those providers that are intentionally fraudulent. Even an innocent mistake can land you in serious legal and financial hot water. Being tagged as excluded by the Office of the Inspector General (OIG) can crush your practice especially considering the new guidelines that went into effect just a couple of days ago (on Feb. 13th). Tomorrow, a leading healthcare attorney will walk you through the new exclusionary rules that just took effect so that you can really understand what will keep you off of the OIG's hit list. Here are just a few of the practical, easy-to-implement tactics you'll receive by attending this 60-minute online training: Determine specifically who you should screen (individuals and entities) and how often Avoid being placed on the list for lack of compliance if there is a match on your team Find out what other legal actions can have collateral damage resulting in exclusion Learn how to get reinstated onto Medicare after an exclusion period expires Head off the top flags that lead to exclusions Master documentation requirements making your files audit-proof And so much more.

I think that that is quite alarming, you need to create an environment that works for everyone. When you have so few women in the office that, as Susan Fowler alleges, it wasn't worth getting a special jacket made for women because there wasn't enough of them, you have got a serious problem there. What you do about the dearth of women in text? I think the problem is greater than the majority of companies would add knowledge. If you are pushing women, you are damaging the chance of the company to be really high performing, because women bring lots of skills.
