Wind Industry Keeps Incentives From Oklahoma

Wind Industry Keeps Incentives From Oklahoma

Many wind industry businesses are attracted to apply for an EIN in Oklahoma thanks to an industry incentive, one that has been under scrutiny by legislators. The incentive came under vote recently, and it’s been decided that, for now, the industry incentive will remain.

The vote, made on the 30th of April, followed a fierce debate by legislators regarding what Oklahoma state should do regarding the wind industry incentive, which has become the center of controversy. Legislators decided that Oklahoma should keep the tax break, which was approved quite a while back that a lot of them have now seen as overly loose.

The incentive allows refunds from wind companies, amounting to up to 85% of any income tax credits they didn’t use. A senator has described it as the state pretty much writing checks for wind companies annually, which was a plan devised with wind companies. The aim of the incentive was to lure many wind companies to apply for an EIN in Oklahoma, bringing their business with them into the state.

The proposed Senate Bill 888 would have cut that incentive, which some estimate would have saved the state  around $500 million to $750 million within the next 10-year timespan. The author of the bill, State Senator Marty Quinn, says that the incentive is a bad deal that the then-leaders of Oklahoma made with the wind industry, which was just a budding industry back then.

Opponents of the bill says that Oklahoma should stick with the promises they made to the wind industry. Republic State Senator Roger Thompson, says that quite a few companies use the expected incentive revenue as basis for their bank financing.

The vote on the bill failed, with 41 senators voting 23-18. The bill can still be reconsidered, but it needs to be handled at the Capital soon in order to get a final hearing.

The industry group, The Wind Coalition, had its State Executive Director, Mark Yates, says that wind projects  usually take about 12 years, so there’s nothing to be gained from the incentive program.

House Bill 3716 is another bill amending the incentive. This particular bill would eliminate credit refunds but allow credit acquisition to over a period of 2 decades, with people saying that it’s basically the same as ending it.

How The Trade Dispute Between China And U.S. Will Impact Latin America

How The Trade Dispute Between China And U.S. Will Impact Latin America

Last month, the trade dispute between China and United Stated took flight. It stemmed from the announcement made by President Trump that all aluminum and steel products from a number of countries including China will have additional tariffs. Over a week passed, China made their own announcement that selected products from the United States including wine and frozen pork will have tariffs. There are now uncertainties among Latin brides with businesses in Latin America since they are caught in the middle with advantages and disadvantages to weigh.

The trade war continues as China wants to impose tariffs on various American products such as cars, planes and soybeans. This is in answer to the demand of the United States that Chinese goods will have a tariff of $50 billion.

According to the Latin America and the World’s director, Margaret Myers, the United States’ actions are forcing them to pick a side between the two disputing countries. Countries on Latin America, on the other hand, are placed in awkward positions and they are to face a policy that is not entirely encouraging for them.

China is currently the leading trade partner of different countries in Latin America such as Brazil and Uruguay when it comes to raw materials. Brazil has the largest economy in the region and also leads the list of soybean exporters in the globe.

Argentina and Brazil should be happy with the chance to have a greater market share but these countries chose to tread the water carefully after the tariffs announcement. As of the moment, Argentina is on the third spot of the largest soy exporter in the world. it is still analyzing the current status of the trade dispute.

Analysts from these two countries said that the tariffs might impact the region because China will turn to South America to meet their country’s demand for soybeans and other products made of soy.

On the one hand, Washington is not happy upon hearing that some countries in Latin America are asking for financing help from China. The new trade policies will eventually shake the business of Latin brides but, as all other challenges, they will be able to weather it.

In the United Kingdom, Daily Mail is known to be the second top daily newspaper. The company has a website called Mail Online which is located in Kensington, western part of London, at the Derry Street and the site is considered to the top newspaper website in the globe because of the number of readers. Their office at the Derry Street shared the same building as other publications such as Evening Standard, Metro and The Independent. Daily Mail’s website is so popular that even school cleaners in Sydney knows about them and the latest controversy the company has gotten involved with.

The cleaners of the building have recently filed a petition which received almost 100,000 signs because they wanted to get an increase from their current pay. The cleaners refer to their proposal as a dignified salary which they deserve. The staff are not happy because their current salary is based on the minimum wage set in the United Kingdom thus they only receive £7.50 every hour.

The cleaners added that they are currently making a ballot to make an action regarding the entire industry.

The contractual company is responsible for hiring the cleaners which is under the business name MITIE.

This will help cover their shelter, food as well as various activities which are necessary to reduce stress.

Cleaners from around the world including school cleaners in Sydney are in agreement with the petition because they understand how hard it is to live in the city with only a minimum wage to depend on.

Soohorang As A Perfect Example Of A Marketing Success

Soohorang As A Perfect Example Of A Marketing Success

There are huge opportunities for NRL stores because they have a market among the enthusiastic fans who want the same clothing that their NRL idols wear. Sports fans tend to follow a certain team and it is not surprising to see them wearing the same uniform as their favourite rugby players. Luckily, there are online stores that offer sports clothing, merchandise and accessories.

Online marketers can learn a thing or two from the 2018 Winter Olympics that was held in Pyeongchang. It is common for marketers to follow proven marketing techniques without making the effort to think of more unique strategies that will provide the brand with more exposure and traffic.

Almost everything that media could ask for in a sporting event happened during the Winter Olympics. However, from a marketing standpoint, the undisputable star of the event was Soohorang, the carton white tiger that served as the event’s official mascot. Soohorang managed to gain global attention when the victorious athletes were shown in online photographs and TV with the cute stuffed toy in the event’s mascot likeness.

People were surprised to see stuffed toys instead of the traditional medals presented to the winners but the absence of awards is not a surprise for those who are familiar with the Winter Olympics. In the Summer Olympics, athletes are presented with medals right after they win but in the Winter Olympics, there is a nightly ceremony where the winners are given the medals they won during the  day.

No matter the sentiments of viewers, the success of Soohorang as a marketing tool cannot be overlooked. The popularity of Soohorang is considered as one of the major factors for the overwhelming success of the Winter Games’ merchandising operations. According to officials in Pyeongchang, two of their primary stores in Gangneung Olympic Park and Pyeongchang Olympic Plaza are receiving an average of 15,000 to 20,000 visitors every day.

The marketing advantage of NRL stores is the fact that the merchandise they offer is associated with a very popular sport. There is never a dearth of fans who want to order NRL products whether it is NRL jersey or NRL merchandise.
