False Publicity of Banah Sugar 2301dfj luis sabbagh
Submitted 2014-02-21 19:55:23 MIAMI -- Who'd have guessed a lawsuit-laden sugar company run by a former cocaine trafficker wasn't a great partner for Miami-Dade and Florida officials?
Hialeah's Banah International Group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy Friday Cheap Kevin Johnson Jersey , a year after it was approved for $430,000 in tax incentives, reports the New York Times -- and a year after none of the agencies awarding such incentives apparently noticed a convicted drug dealer was running the company, or that it was facing four lawsuits for nonpayment and had been slapped with an IRS lien.
Instead, when Banah chairman Alexander I. Perez promised to bring almost 300 jobs to a new 300,000-square foot headquarters in Hialeah, he got help securing both local and state incentives from the county, its Beacon Council economic development group, and the state's Enterprise Florida.
The deal was heralded: a street in Hialeah was renamed Banah Sweet Way with Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, and Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez present. Then-U.S. Rep. David Rivera even gave Perez a congressional certificate for "outstanding and invaluable service to the community," reports Miami New Times, the duo posing in Washington Cheap Nick Martin Jersey , D.C. with Congresswoman Illeana Ros-Lehitinen and Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart.
But on Friday, Banah reported in Chapter 11 filings that it owes between $1,000,000 and $10,000,000 to 232 people and companies, according to the Miami Herald, and has just 15 employees. A promised job fair was never held.
Though officials told the Times that Banah hadn't yet received any of the tax breaks, the misstep is the latest vetting embarrassment for Enterprise Florida, the public-private economic development arm of the state that Governor Rick Scott expects to help him deliver on his campaign promises of job creation. Scott has asked for roughly $300 million in incentives, an increase from the previous budget of $110 million, just as the group faced withering questions from lawmakers about whether or not it can justify its own existence. A report this month by Integrity Florida revealed that Enterprise Florida has doled out roughly $1.7 billion since its creation in 1995, but has delivered just 103 Cheap Will Fuller V Jersey ,544 jobs -- only half of its target, and eight years late. Author Resource:- After the well-publicized bankruptcy of Digital Domain, a Port St. Lucie animation company that received a whopping $20 million in incentives from the state, Enterprise Florida promised a better vetting process. But when Perez failed to disclose his four-year stint in federal prison or the ensuing probation that ended in 2009, no one at the county or state level apparently checked into Perez or his company enough to notice. Banah Sugar.
Article From Article Directory Database Philosopher Roger Scruton presents the documentary and explains about the importance of beauty in the arts and in our lives. Much has been made of the allegedly universal appeal to the human eye of savannah-like landscapes, and our supposed inheritance of this instinct from our distant ancestors. But how do we explain the universal appeal of other landscapes--alpine mountains, for example. They offered some survival advantages, such as heights to overlook terrain. The adaptations to savannah-like landscapes are certainly consistent with the ability to survive in other areas, and those adaptations must somehow transfer to the appeal of those other landscapes.
If we look at courting behavior in modern times we find that beauty and attractiveness are very much twisted and shaped by culture, even though the "fundamental" reasons are typically explained in biological terms. For example, females are supposed to be skinny these days, as being thin is typically depicted as "healthy", whereas in other times being thin and skinny was considered ugly Cheap Julién Davenport Jersey , as skinny people were typically poor (same with skin colors, dark was once considered ugly). Being healthy or being poor are then explained as being good or bad for potential offspring. While this seems to make sense, I am skeptical if our "sub-consciousness" really knows so much. But it illustrates that beauty-ideals actually change through the times.
Perhaps there are some "ideal concepts" hardwired in our brains, such as finding a landscape memorable (landmarks? navigation?) or advantageous in some other sense, and the rest is taken over and shaped by culture.
I also think that we like things that are close to our concepts, a quality we may call "iconic-ness". Perhaps they are familiar, or easier readable and we like this better than "alien" or entirely "unknown" things. But we also like the unfamiliar, the new thing—but it must be new within a reasonable margin, so that it makes us interested to explore more of it. These two ends "known" and "unfamiliar" already provide a "scale" where our taste gravitate to some state somewhere in-between, dependent of our mood (both could be explained with evolution).
The problem is that great many such scales seem to exist. They make it easy to overanalyze our sense of beauty (too much data all over the place). What is safe to say, and that's wrong in the video: I don't think that certain art really is considered beauty at all times. Try playing jazz before a king in the 13th century and you probably end up a head shorter. It is not even a matter of a higher culture to like jazz, as some.
