You Can Still Escape Sales Tax Online - Forbes

Robert W. Wood, Contributor

If you are paying sales tax on all your internet purchases you’re in the minority. Many transactions still escape it legitimately and many others slip through the cracks. Most of us got used to convenient online buying. The bonus of no tax was sweet, but it was always clear it wouldn’t last.

45 states and the District of Columbia have sales tax. Each has a use tax too. Property purchased online and brought into your state triggers use tax. The only states without sales and use taxes are Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon. Thus, unless you are in one of those 5 states, you probably should have been paying use tax all along on purchases escaping sales tax.

2,000 Animals Rescued by Pilots - VetStreet.com

By vetstreet.com | Pets



In 2008, pilot Jeff Bennett was volunteering at a Key West animal shelter when he came across an article in an aircraft magazine about a newly launched nonprofit called Pilots N Paws. The group's mission is to connect volunteers who rescue, shelter and foster abandoned animals in danger of being euthanized with pilots who can transport them to foster or forever homes.

Inspired by what he read, Bennett, a Florida Keys resident, decided that he could better use his time transporting animals rather than cleaning cages. "Anyone can clean a crate or cage," Bennett says. "But since I already had a plane and my license, I felt that my time could be much better used in transporting these homeless animals to help prevent them from being euthanized." ...more

Thanksgiving-Hanukkah overlap spurs thanks, angst - AP

Associated Press 




FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich. (AP) — When life gives you Hanukkah on Thanksgiving, make a menurkey. Or a turkel.

 

That's what students at suburban Detroit's Hillel Day School are doing — creating paper-and-paint mashups of menorahs and turkeys, and the birds combined with dreidels.

The recent class projects at the Farmington Hills school illustrate one way U.S. Jews are dealing with a rare quirk of the calendar on Thursday that overlaps Thanksgiving with the start of Hanukkah. The last time it happened was 1888 and the next is 79,043 years from now — by one estimate widely shared in Jewish circles.

A messy winter storm is moving across the eastern half of the United States, threatening to delay drivers and 
fliers right before Thanksgiving Day, one of the busiest travel times of the year.

Weather forecasters say a few key atmospheric componentsjoined forces to create this meteorological misery.

The storm is actually the same upper level low-pressure system, or trough (essentially a dip in the jet stream), that tore over the Southwest over the last few days, Brian Hurley, a...  Read More

Alicia Keys Visits Typhoon Refugees in Philippines - AP



Grammy-winning singer Alicia Keys visited a Philippine air force base Monday to bring cheer to hundreds of evacuees from eastern provinces wracked by Typhoon Haiyan.

The American singer distributed crayons and coloring books to children at the Villamor Air Base grandstand, where evacuees from eastern Leyte and Samar provinces arrive via C-130 planes.

Social Welfare Department officer Jane Abello says Keys stayed for about half an hour to chat with evacuees.

The R&B star was in Manila for a concert Monday at the seaside MOA Arena.

The Philippine Star earlier quoted her as saying that "music has a way of lifting your spirit and that's what I hope to do for the Filipino people."

Keys tweeted three days after the Nov. 8 typhoon: "To the people of the Philippines my heart is with you."

She also encouraged fans around the world to donate to the typhoon victims. ...article

Saint Peter's bones on display for first time - AFP




Vatican City (AFP) - Bones believed to belong to Saint Peter, one of the founding fathers of the Catholic Church, went on display for the first time Sunday, as Pope Francis held a ceremony to end the "Year of Faith".

Tens of thousands of pilgrims gathered to catch a glimpse of the remains, eight fragments of bone between two and three centimetres (around one inch) long displayed on an ivory bed within a bronze chest on a pedestal in St. Peter's Square.

The chest, given to pope Paul VI in 1971 and usually kept in the tiny chapel of the papal apartments, was decorated with a carving of Peter, who was a fisherman before becoming the Church's first pope, casting his nets into the sea.

'Alice In Wonderland 2' Set For May 2016, With Johnny Depp And Mia Wasikowska Officially On Board- Huff Post



It's through the looking glass again for Johnny Depp and Mia Wasikowska, who are now officially set for "Alice in Wonderland 2."

Disney made the announcement on Friday following months of speculation. Depp and Wasikowska will reprise their roles as the Mad Hatter and Alice, respectively, in the sequel that was once tentatively titled "Into the Looking Glass." (Lewis Carroll's 1865 novel "Alice's Adventures in Wonderland" received an 1871 sequel called "Through the Looking-Glass," both of which were used as inspiration for the 2010 movie directed by Tim Burton.)

Rare Leonardos Visit New York for First Time - ARTnews

BY Stephanie Strasnick



In 1482, Leonardo da Vinci traveled to Milan with the hopes of becoming a court painter for Ludovico Sforza. In an effort to impress the distinguished patron, the artist created an immaculate metalpoint drawing titled Head of a Young Woman (Study for the Angel in the ‘Virgin of the Rocks’).

Unlike most of Leonardo’s drawings, the Young Woman is highly finished. The contours of her face are meticulously shaded. Highlights on her cheeks give her a glowing complexion. Her deep-set eyes communicate a wistful and lifelike gaze. Elegant and arresting, she is what Bernard Berenson called “one of the finest achievements of all draughtsmanship.”

Visitors to the Morgan Library & Museum in New York now have the rare opportunity to view this drawing, which seldom leaves Italy,...  Read More
