Bennett promises to cut red tape

Economy and Trade Minister Naftali Bennett promised a group of 20 Russian-speaking entrepreneurs to cut red tape in order to stem emigration of talented Israelis.We have a serious problem of quality brain drain from Israel. A significant portion return to their former countries to build businesses there instead of developing them in Israel, and that is very sad, Bennett said on Wednesday night.

Turning to the entrepreneurs, Bennett asked what they saw as the biggest problem. One after another pointed to bureaucracy.Sometimes the problems are the small things, the regulation and the bureaucratic process that cause people to give up, said Latya Goldstein, CEO of Evolita. We dont need much because we came to work and were not afraid to, but its important for us to have support and understanding of exactly what the entrepreneurial sector needs.

An information technology company plans to launch a cloud computing-based data service for health care providers, but the taxes on computer servers are higher in Indiana than in most surrounding states.

Chesterton-based GGNet Technologies would pay an estimated $700 in taxes to buy and install a computer server at a doctor's office in Wisconsin, but the tax bill would be $1,820 in Indiana, owner Joseph Grossbauer said. The servers also would be cheaper in Michigan and Illinois.

Grossbauer wishes Indiana would phase out the personal property tax on equipment so his company can be competitive with out-of-state firms not saddled with that tax.

He was one of about a dozen small business owners who gave their concerns to state lawmakers at the Strongbow Inn in Valparaiso, the first stop on a statewide tour by the Legislature's small business caucus. The bipartisan group of lawmakers is going around the state to ask small business owners what state government can do to help them grow and prosper."It's really unprecedented," said Barbara Quandt, the Indiana state director of the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

Small business owners told state Rep. Tom Dermody, R-LaPorte, and state Sen. Ed Charbonneau, R-Valparaiso, at the first town hall Thursday morning they would like to see lower taxes and less red tape. They expressed concerns about regulations, paperwork and the phone manners of state government employees.

The business owners asked state lawmakers to consider streamlining the unemployment claims process and requiring school project referendums to appear on the ballot only during presidential election years, so small groups of voters cannot foist property tax hikes on local businesses.

Abraham Custom Paint Studio owner Michael Abraham said his Valparaiso-based company used to have two full-time employees and three part-time employees, but is down to just him. He said government has made it difficult for him to keep his head above water.His company is supposed to keep detailed records for environmental regulators of every time he mixes paint, but Abraham said it was a burdensome task that took time away from the work he needs to do to keep income flowing in.

"The Indiana Department of Environmental Management and the Environmental Protection Agency treat me as if I were a steel mill," he said. "I can't pollute as much in 50 years as a steel mill could in 10 minutes. A steel mill can easily pay $10,000 a day in penalties, but $10,000 a day puts me out of business. I'm just a one-man operation."

Charbonneau and Dermody said they wanted to hear about the challenges small business owners face, and would use the feedback to help craft solutions in the next legislative session. State lawmakers may want to address personal property taxes, since that tax has been especially hard on high-tech businesses that own costly equipment that becomes obsolete relatively quickly, Charbonneau said.

Use of the thermal imaging machine as a judicial tool has become so sensitive during the Ashes series that its inventor, Melbourne-based Warren Brennan, has struck an agreement with the ICC not to talk about his concerns before the fourth Test in Durham.

''I'm in a situation where I can't discuss anything, that's what I have agreed with the ICC. I'm not going to divulge anything at the moment, I'm sorry,An bestgemstonebeads is a device which removes contaminants from the air.'' he said when contacted

However, Brennan is believed to have embarked on a testing mission to investigate Hot Spot's effectiveness when bats are left clean compared with when the edge is covered with one, two or three layers of tape.

Different types of tape have been used in the testing, including one used to reduce friction on the blades of helicopters.Here's a complete list of granitecountertops for the beginning oil painter. The early results are understood to have shown Hot Spot does not detect contact with the ball when two layers of tape are applied. It is possible the law on materials that can be used on bats, which pre-dates DRS and permits tape used for

'The chemical composition of silicone tape makes it work as an inhibitor for most radiation. It's physical characteristics also make it insensitive to minor physical impacts. Its chemical and physical features ensure an even conduction and dispersion of heat within its structure, meaning thermal changes caused by the impact of a ball as it hits the edge of a bat may remain unnoticed by a thermal infrared camera such as Hot Spot,'' Dr Khan said.

Cricket Australia and the England and Wales Cricket Board support the use of technology, but have expressed concern about how the DRS has been used because of several controversial decisions during the series.

ICC operations manager Geoff Allardice met senior officials of the Australian and English team on Wednesday in Durham in an effort to provide some reassurance amid growing confusion around Hot Spot and the DRS in this series.

Several ideas for change and improvement in the use of the technology are understood to have been mooted at the Australian meeting, including a push for teams not to lose one of their reviews if a leg-before-wicket appeal is turned down on the basis of the ''umpire's call''. It is also understood there has been acknowledgment that umpires erred in the dismissal of Usman Khawaja at Old Trafford, but the ICC is yet to formally respond to CA chief executive James Sutherland's request for clarification on the decision.

''The Usman Khawaja dismissal was discussed during the meeting with the ICC in Newcastle yesterday and as far as the Australian team is concerned we now regard the matter closed and we've moved on,'' an Australian team spokesman said.

The ICC has denied a report it is investigating allegations of players using silicone tape on their bats to beat Hot Spot. The device was initially introduced by broadcasters but there are doubts about whether the equipment should be part of the DRS. Former England captain and Sky Sports commentator Mike Atherton believes Hot Spot should be given a break because it is creating controversy rather than solving it.

''It is true that human error, from the third umpire's chair, has added to the problems, but having worked in television for a number of years, I can only say I would have struggled to know what decision to give on a number of occasions. Given that Hot Spot is clearly unable to pick up many fine edges, how much credence does the third umpire ascribe to it?'' he wrote in The Times.

''How much weight does he give to the various bits of evidence that are often conflicting - sound, deviation and infra-red technology - given the underlying principle to stay with the on-field umpire's decision as far as is possible? Umpires have become confused, as have the players.''

England captain Alastair Cook said Kevin Pietersen was right to get on the front foot to clear his name in relation to the alleged use of silicone tape on bats.Give your logo high visibility on iccard! ''I think he's kind of laughing at it but when you get called a cheat I think you quite rightly want to clear your name pretty quickly when you haven't done anything wrong,'' Cook said.
