Incumbent state lawmakers moved on and new faces emerged victorious in Pennsylvania’s 2022 primary election.

The May 17 primary marked Pennsylvania’s first election since lawmakers redrew the boundaries of congressional districts to reflect the state’s changing demographics.

Several House districts and one Senate district in the Greater Harrisburg area featured primary contests, including two involving incumbents. In Pennsylvania, candidates competed for 203 House seats and 25 of 50 Senate seats.

Based on unofficial returns, which include mail-in ballots, here are the results of the main Central Pennsylvania State House and Senate contests to determine who will represent their parties in the November general election.

103rd State Chamber

Five-term holder Patty Kim won the Democratic nomination ahead of Heather MacDonald, a progressive community activist from Camp Hill.

The newly drawn 103rd now includes the West Shore communities of Wormleysburg, East Pennsboro Township, Lemoyne, and Camp Hill in addition to much of Harrisburg. It previously did not cover any part of the western shore.

Before being elected to the State House in 2012, Kim spent six years on the Harrisburg City Council and worked as a television reporter. She says her work on city council and as a journalist has given her an understanding of local issues and the ability to articulate solutions.

She will face David D. Buell who won the Republican nomination against Jennie Jenkins-Dallas, the former Harrisburg police officer who has made two runs for mayor as a Democrat in recent years.

Buell, 57, is a former two-term Cumberland County prothonotary, a role that put him in charge of the county’s civil court system. He now works in financial services.

105th state house

Susquehanna Township Commissioner Justin Fleming won the Democratic nomination for the 105th House District seat against Eric Epstein, known as a state government and Three Mile Island watchdog.

Fleming has worked at several state agency press offices and has worked for nonprofit organizations that advocate for children and mental health services. He has volunteered as a baseball coach, has been active in school district activities, and is president of the Pennsylvania Association of Government Relations.

Earlier this spring, Fleming told PennLive he wants to tackle what he says are alarming child poverty rates in the district, which includes Susquehanna Township, Penbrook and part of Lower Paxton Township.

As a state representative, he said he will have the ability to continue these efforts full-time.

“I have dedicated my professional and personal life to the service of others,” he said. “This office would be a continuation of that service.”

Fleming will likely face Republican write-in candidate Therese Kenley in November’s general election. She decided to get into the race to give voters a choice in this new House neighborhood.

the The district covers all of Susquehanna and Penbrook Township and parts of Lower Paxton Township in Dauphin County.

86th home quarter

Incumbent Rep. Perry Stambaugh, of Green Park, Perry County, won the Republican nomination over two-term incumbent Rep. John Hershey, in the 86th House District.

A new legislative map pitted the two candidates for the seat, which covers Perry and Juniata counties.

Earlier this spring, Stambaugh, who served one term, noted that he is one of the relatively few members of the General Assembly who refuses to participate in the state pension system.

He said he believes the benefit violates a provision of the Pennsylvania Constitution and adds to the state’s $76 billion (and growing) retirement debt.

Stambaugh also cited his introduction of a state constitutional amendment to eliminate school property taxes; filings with the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to hold CenturyLink accountable for its poor service in Perry, Juniata and Cumberland counties; and measures to increase rural broadband access, including the recent creation of the Pennsylvania Broadband Development Authority.

He ran unopposed in the fall general election.

Thomas Kutz

Thomas Kutz, a Lower Allen Township Commissioner, won the Republican nomination for Pennsylvania’s 87th House District seat.

87th State House District

Lower Allen Township Commissioner Thomas Kutz won the Republican nomination for the 87th State House seat against Upper Allen Township businessman Eric Clancy.

The district covers all of Upper Allen, Monroe and Silver Spring townships; parts of the townships of Lower Allen and South Middleton; and the Borough of Mount Holly Springs.

Kutz is currently the state Senate’s policy director and was elected to the Lower Allen Township Board of Commissioners in 2019. He said the board passed balanced budgets with no tax increases each year he served. .

After college, Kutz worked as a congressional staffer for the U.S. House Ways and Means Committee during a time when Congress passed the largest tax cut in American history and then served as policy director for a U.S. Senate candidate before attending law school.

Kutz will face unopposed Democrat Kristal Markel in the fall general election.

34th Senate District

Rep. Greg Rothman won the Republican nomination for the 34th seat in the Senate District over challenger Mike Gossert, a member of the Cumberland Valley School District Board of Trustees.

The district encompasses northern Dauphin County, all of Perry County, and most of Cumberland County, except for the southeastern municipalities near the York County line.

Rothman’s current legislative seat, the 87th House District, has been significantly redrawn under new maps created by the state’s Legislative Redistricting Commission, as part of the 10-year redistribution required after the 2020 census.

“I’m a conservative Republican representing a suburban neighborhood,” Rothman, a commercial realtor with his company, RSR Realtors, told PennLive earlier this spring. “I did well in the more suburban purple areas, but my electoral record is more conservative.”

Rothman will face James Massey, the only Democratic candidate, in the general election.

The biggest income problem is that young families have their highest expenses during their lowest income years. We help solve this problem with parental allowances and family allowances. But the super mandatory works against that, reducing earnings in those years while reducing work earnings.

In 2020, 4.5 million people withdrew nearly $40 billion from their super under the early release program. It was clear to those millions of people that having their own money today was better for them. And
I was one of them. This money helped me buy my own house and spend more on my family. If the opportunity presented itself again, I would repeat the exercise. As I suspect millions of others would.

A withdrawal from this super helped Cameron Murray buy his house and spend on his family.

My parents’ generation had access to their super for a decade. I’ve seen many of this generation take huge losses on their pre-retirement super straight.

I’ve seen others take their super as a lump sum and lose it all in financial scams, including honey traps. I have seen many spend a lot to qualify for the old age pension.

Having a super seemed to offer them no protection against recourse to the old-age pension. Indeed, no one who has studied the super system thinks it will make much difference to old-age pension dependency.

I have also seen many use their super to pay off their mortgage or help their children buy a house or buy another investment property.

When you take a closer look, you see that the super is already being used to buy houses in different ways. I had always worried that using super for housing would drive up prices. But I came to see the reality is that it is already happening.

A happy life is not one where you cannot enjoy your money while you are young.

In 2020 I had a health scare with suspected bowel cancer. I was only 38, but that’s genetics. My dad had a similar scare in his early 50s. What does that have to do with super? The dead don’t need super. One in 11 men does not reach 60 and one in seven does not reach 66.

A happy life is not one where you cannot enjoy your money while you are young. It is a life in which you create great memories and social bonds in your youth that stay with you when you are old, a life in which you raise great children.

Luckily I had my bowel partially removed and I’m fine. But now more than ever, I see that the best years of my life are this one and the next. My children are only young once and if I die sooner rather than later, I want to have used my money to enjoy our time together to create the best childhood memories for them.

Loading

My personal experience drove my economic research, which culminated in a report in 2020 arguing that we should scrap the super, pay it as a salary, and let everyone gradually withdraw their money from their fund to spend as they please.

Anyone who has carefully and objectively examined the super system finds that it does not make the old age pension more viable. In fact, it makes the situation worse. The tax breaks given to supermarkets amount to nearly $40 billion a year, and nearly $30 billion a year is paid in fees. The entire age pension system costs only $45 billion a year. Without the super and its associated tax breaks, the federal government could afford higher pensions.

Super also amplifies any financial inequality that exists, be it a gender pay gap or any pay gap between workers and cities and towns. The old-age pension fills all these gaps.

Loading

Even better than the Morrison government’s super-for-housing proposal is super-for-everything – completely unraveling the super system.

That wouldn’t mean people couldn’t save. They could. Just like they did before great.

It would simply improve the budget, improve choice, improve fairness and improve the life cycle of Australian families who need their money when they are young, not when they are old.

The only mystery is why our seemingly left-wing political party seems so determined to introduce a privatized, high-cost pension system rather than strengthening the only pension system that really works – the old-age pension.

ANKARA

President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan has called for house prices to be closely monitored as the government unveiled a package of cheaper home loans.

class=”cf”>

There were media reports suggesting house prices rose after the announcement of the new financing plan. The issue was discussed at a meeting of provincial leaders of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), chaired by Erdoğan earlier this week.

“Inspections will be strengthened,” Erdoğan told party officials, asking them to coordinate their efforts with relevant ministries and authorities.

The government on May 9 announced measures to provide cheaper home loans to combat soaring property prices.

According to the program, loans with a monthly rate of 0.99% and a term of 10 years will be granted to first-time buyers for houses worth up to 2 million Turkish liras (130,000 dollars).

Under a second scheme, called the “expanded finance package for housing”, loans with a monthly interest rate of 0.89% and a tenor of 10 years will be granted to those who convert their savings into foreign currencies. foreigners in Turkish lira or sell their gold to the Central Bank to buy houses worth up to 2 million lira.

In the meantime, a presidential decree, which modifies the program of citizenship by investment in real estate, has been published in the Official Gazette.

class=”cf”>

The new regulation increased the minimum amount required to be invested in properties by foreign nationals to obtain Turkish citizenship from the current $250,000 to $400,000.

The new regulations will come into force one month later.

The decree also states that foreign nationals who join the private pension system with at least $500,000 or the equivalent in foreign currency and remain in the system for three years will be eligible to obtain Turkish citizenship.

Question: I earned Long Term Capital Gains (LTCG) of Rs. 40 lakh on the sale of a residential house in FY21-22. To save tax, I will invest Rs. 20 lakh in NHAI capital gains bonds, and the balance Rs. 20 lakh as margin money for booking a residential house under construction, which will cost me Rs. .50 lakh. The remaining amount will be financed by a mortgage. Will I be entitled to claim exemption from paying tax on LTCG of Rs. 20 lakh (paid as margin money)?

To respond: Tax exemption under section 54 of the Long Term Capital Gains Income Tax Act 1961 on the sale of a dwelling house may be claimed to the extent of the cost of the new dwelling house, without any reference to the source of financing of the same. So what is important is the amount of investment in the property. It doesn’t matter how you finance the purchase of the property. Even a loan taken out for this purpose can be considered your investment for this purpose.

Since you are planning to buy a house that costs more than the long-term capital gains realized, you don’t need to invest in NHAI bonds. To qualify for this benefit for a property under construction, you must invest the amount of long-term capital gains before the tax return filing due date, i.e. 31 July 2022. If you are unable to fully use the money, you must deposit the unused long-term capital gain into the capital gain account, which can be used to pay the builder. You must ensure that the construction is completed within three years from the date of sale of your house.



Question: I am claiming Rs. 1.50 lakh under Section 80 C of the Income Tax Act. Is there a way to save more taxes, such as taking loans from banks to buy residential or commercial property and renting it out? Can we offset the interest payment or equated monthly installment (EMI) to the bank and reduce our tax payment?

To respond: In addition to the tax benefits of up to Rs. 1.50 lakh under Section 80C of the Income Tax Act, you can further avail yourself of exclusive tax benefits under the Section 80CCD(1B) by investing Rs. 50,000 in National Pension Scheme (NPS) Tier I account.

With regard to your tax benefits for a mortgage, be aware that rental income is taxed under the heading “Revenue from real estate” after a flat-rate allowance of 30% of the rent. You can claim full interest on your home loan, but you are allowed to offset the loss under “House Property Income” only up to Rs. 2 lakh against other income during the year. current year, and the unabsorbed loss, if any, can be carried forward for offsetting against income from the ownership of the home over the following eight years. You are also allowed to claim the benefit against the principal amount of a home loan within the aggregate limit of Rs. 1.50 lakh every year. Please note that these benefits are only available under the old tax regime.

In the increasingly volatile market conditions of 2021, Tramontana Asset Management has developed and deployed trade finance solutions to meet the demand for corporate finance. These solutions have simultaneously enabled a growing number of institutional investors to participate in the energy transition. For its innovative work to make carbon markets accessible to traditional investors and provide companies with better access to finance, Tramontana won Energy risk2022 Trade Finance House of the Year Award.

As a specialist investment firm, Tramontana develops hedging and financing solutions for corporate clients, partnering with large institutional investors to finance these transactions. The eight-person team has amassed over $5 billion in assets under management since launching in 2014, focusing on energy transition and carbon-backed finance.

Tramontana chief executives and co-founders Paul Jackman and Bharath Manium believe that a successful transition to a low-carbon economy requires the full support of global financial markets. The company took a big step towards that goal last year when it closed a major financing deal that served both a hedging firm and a large financial institution seeking exposure to the space. of the energy transition.

Tramontana works with corporate clients to help implement effective hedging strategies that are not constrained by the liquidity limitations of futures markets based on the European Union Emissions Trading System. This particular solution was developed to minimize hedge slippage and reduce the balance sheet burden of managing the margin requirements of hedging positions on the exchange.

“Our solution is to issue secure notes, purchased by our financial partners, and acquire carbon on the market,” says Jackman. “Carbon certificates are kept in a ledger account for the duration of the note – it can be a three, five or seven year note, depending on the transaction. The client company then buys the carbon certificates at the end of this period. »

The solution, which Jackman describes as “a scalable multi-issue program”, repackages energy transition-related assets into standard notes so they can be held in clearing systems such as Euroclear and Clearstream. Physical energy assets cannot be held in clearing systems, a problem that has traditionally left many institutional investors reluctant to participate in this growing market. This solution solves the accounting, regulatory and management challenges associated with holding such assets.

Additionally, to provide investors such as pension funds and insurers with pure-play investments in this space, Tramontana mitigates non-carbon-specific risks such as credit risk through hedging and various collateralization solutions.

As a result, Tramontana was able to build a deeper and broader pool of liquidity to fund such transactions by attracting the interest of broader investors, such as the specialist UK pension company he first worked with last year. According to Manium and Jackman, the growth in investor interest has seen Tramontana’s typical deal size increase by more than 40% year-over-year.

“Our financial partners are sophisticated institutions that are well versed in structured finance and are comfortable with the associated documentation and operational complexity,” explains Manium. “The key objective of our attempt to broaden the market participation of our products was to make them more accessible to insurance and pension fund investors, who have traditionally been less active in structured finance related to the energy transition. “

While interest in green investments has undoubtedly increased in recent years, Tramontana’s trade finance solution aims to enable greater market access, increasing opportunities for hedging companies.

“The energy transition is a subject that everyone is talking about. Many companies are setting investment targets in environmental, social and governance strategies, and so investments like these are an integral part of that kind of strategy,” says Manium. “But I think the situation we’re in right now is that there’s a lot of investor demand but not enough assets.”

Jackman adds, “Tramontana’s carbon-backed securities program allows non-specialist investors access to energy transition markets and has opened the door to a much larger pool of investor capital to deploy in the space. energy transition”.

The investment firm has clearly achieved its goal of boosting access to carbon markets for broader capital markets, significantly increasing its corporate clients’ access to capital for trade finance and management activities risks.

A fierce fire at a neglected boarding house in downtown Newtown on March 15 has led to renewed calls for tenants’ rights and greater government regulation of these often neglected places.

The explosion was so intense that an 80-year-old man, Ronnie, was forced to jump from a two-story window of the 14-room Veda house. He had a heart attack on the way to the hospital and was lucky to survive. Three people died.

Boarding houses are mostly inhabited by single men, often elderly and living with illness, mental health issues and/or disability. In a fairer society, many older residents would live in a home or hospice.

Residents share a kitchen and living space, rarely have their own bathroom, and for these reasons are technically considered homeless by the Australian Bureau of Statistics.

As the managing director of Shelter New South Wales, John Angler, put it: “At the end of the day, boarding schools are just an option B. They are better than the alternative, the street, but they are not a [option] A.”

The Newtown Neighborhood Center (NNC) campaigned for more rights for boarding house tenants. Boarding house residents can be easily evicted, so most never ask for basic upgrades.

The NSW government introduced a mandatory pension register in 2012, but NNC CEO Liz Yeo said many are still unregistered. (Vadja House has been recorded.)

Included in the pension law aims to “promote the sustainability and continuous improvement of service delivery in registrable pensions”. Local government must inspect pensions (under a 1993 law) for building and fire safety, but Homelessness NSW chief executive Katherine McKernan said this was not enforced.

She told the Guardian March 20: “Local councils are responsible for regulations, but all fines etc. go to the state government. This means that local governments have to invest a lot to regulate and they don’t get any rewards for it. What we rely on then is goodwill… advice.

NNC’s Paul Adabie supports a licensing or accreditation system to regulate who can operate repos. The center said many residents are relatively satisfied with their boarding rooms.

A 2019 survey of boarding schools in central and southern Sydney by the City Futures Research Center at the University of New South Wales found that of the approximately 6,000 approved boarding schools, around half were deemed operational. It also found that the ‘profile’ of occupants was ‘much closer’ to typical tenants than to occupants of transitional pensions or social housing waiting lists.

He said the new boarding houses “don’t offer a much more affordable housing option”, compared to others on the private rental market.

“Yet most residents (64%) had low incomes (less than $800 per week), almost all of whom (90%) paid more than a third of their income in rent, and therefore classified as being in rental stress. Overall, at least two-thirds (and potentially up to four-fifths) of occupants were in rental stress. This suggests that this form of accommodation is not suitable for most current occupants over the long term. This form of accommodation is also not suitable for people identified as in need of affordable housing, such as people on waiting lists for social housing, people excluded from traditional rental markets or those looking for a transitional housing.

A quick online check of boarding school rooms revealed $680 per month for a furnished room in Annandale’ and $800 per month for a similar room, with shared kitchen and laundry, in Paddington. Old age pension is $744 per fortnight, which means that after paying the rent, boarders have between $170 and $260 a week for bills and food.

With the waiting list for social housing in NSW being so huge – 50,000 applicants representing over 100,000 people – and many more in need of affordable housing, it’s no wonder people opt for boarding accommodation.

In response to the Newtown boarding house fire, Greens MP and housing spokesperson Jenny Leong said the NSW Government must investigate the acquisition of existing private boarding houses , to bring them to a livable level and manage them as safe, secure, affordable and public. – owned social housing.

“Overcrowding and poor living conditions in boarding houses are a symptom of Sydney’s chronic shortage of social and affordable housing,” Leong said on March 18.

“The reason there is such a high demand for pensions in the city center is that the waiting list for social housing is so long, the private rental market is completely unaffordable and there are vulnerable people who need to access social services and assistance, who cannot obtain this support.

January’s changes require new boarding houses to be “affordable” and run by community housing providers for 10 years, Leong said. But the regulations are not retroactive, which is why she wants the government to buy the properties.

The solution is safe and secure housing for people, owned and operated by the state, or not-for-profit, not private pensions, Leong said.

Full Name: Dinora Ruiz

What office are you looking for? Illinois State Representative from the 86th District

What offices, if any, have you already held? Nothing

City: Joliette

Occupation: Seamstress

Education: Seamstress, Midwife, Doula

Campaign website: www.dinoraruizillinois.com

What are the main issues facing your district and what would you like to do to address these issues?

Pension – The looming pension crisis must be resolved. Government employees accumulating pensions do not help the pension system. Tackling this problem would ease the pressure on the private sector. This is why I will be refusing a pension as a state representative from the 86th district of Illinois.

Roads and Bridges – What to Say? If you’ve ever walked any roads or bridges in Illinois’ 86th District, you’d know this. Advocating for funds, communicating with community leaders, and supporting the workforce to get the job done will propel our community to growth.

Taxes – Need I say more? People are moving by the thousands to more tax-friendly states. Reducing unnecessary spending, solving our pension crisis and paying down the debt are legislative measures that I will defend. If it’s not good for individuals to be in debt, it’s not good for our state.

If COVID-19 hospitalizations and deaths increase again, what mitigation measures, if any, should the state pursue?

First, the state must respect what is already stipulated in Illinois law, namely that a governor can issue an emergency order, not exceeding 30 days. After such a period of time, the governor must consult with the legislature to extend an emergency order.

Second, where should the number of hospitalizations and percentages of deaths be to justify state mitigation?

Third, no mitigation can replace primary care physicians and their patients for individualized care.

In light of Michael Madigan’s indictment, what steps should the legislature take to address corruption and ethics issues in the state?

Everyone, whether you are in the private or public sector, must be held accountable for their actions. There must be clear and impartial agreement on the definition of corruption and clear lines that cannot be crossed. If I can be arrested for shoplifting, how much more for someone with their indictment?

If there was one bill you could push through the Legislative Assembly next year, what would it be?

Pension – The looming pension crisis must be resolved. Government employees accumulating pensions do not help the pension system. Tackling this problem would ease the pressure on the private sector. This is why I will be refusing a pension as a state representative from the 86th district of Illinois.

If there was a recently passed law that you could repeal, what would it be?

I would repeal SAFE-T or HB 3653. Crime is on the rise in Illinois and especially in my area. If an officer can’t even evict someone who trespassed on my property for a class B misdemeanor because they don’t appear to be “violent,” that’s outrageous. Not to mention the other laws in this act that prevent the police from keeping our community safe and keep criminals away from the consequences.

Do you support term limits? If so, why and what would they look like? And if not, why not?

Yes and No to both.

Yes, I support term limits IF the Illinois Legislature creates career politicians.

No, I don’t support term limits IF there was a way to stop career politicians.

For example, a legislature that does not collect a pension is less likely to stand for election continuously. The legislature that has dedicated itself to public policy work as a legislature will do the job and function despite the money.

Inflation across the country has had a huge impact on the price of gasoline, food, and other supplies. What should the legislator do to solve these problems?

Help people help themselves. Pay off the debt. Create goods. Support small businesses. Build a garden.

The inflation we see today is a nationwide problem. The tax freeze only makes us worse by not solving the problem.

Taxes are a major concern for Illinois voters. What do you see as the underlying issues and how would you propose to address them?

The underlying issues include irresponsible spending that is wasteful and leads to debt.

Illinois needs to spend wisely, retain only necessary services, and create different revenue streams instead of relying on raising taxes.

What three things could the state legislature do to promote better fiscal accountability in state government?

Spend less than we earn. Create more revenue streams without raising taxes. Stick to a concise and detailed budget agreed upon by all political parties.

How would you propose to resolve issues with the Illinois Department of Child and Family Services?

Start by thoroughly investigating the allegations already made against all DCFS workers. Begin replacing DCFS workers under criminal investigation.

What can be done at the state level to fight crime?

Encourage neighborhood policing and normal police interactions

Support the police

Counseling and family and individual therapy in prisons and/or visits

Training for jobs in prisons

Did Joe Biden win the 2020 election?

Yes, he is the president, isn’t he?

What is your position on the January 6, 2021 riot at the United States Capitol?

January 6 helped me see the need for our local towns to have the manpower and equipment to handle the rioters. Our small businesses as well as state and national buildings must be protected from illegal activity. My thoughts and prayers are with the families who have suffered losses from the events.

Illinois has seen significant revenue growth from marijuana sales and enhanced gambling. Are there other industries the state should consider to increase its revenue?

Double fold. Encourage employers to develop businesses here and encourage residents to come and stay. Create more opportunities for tourism outside of Chicago. (uncovered pyramids, French fort)

The Mariposa Veterans Services office may have recently moved to a new building, but the many helpful programs and resources offered inside aren’t going anywhere.

Now located at the intersections of Highways 140 and 49 in Mariposa — adjacent to Moonbow Espresso — this office is open Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

An open house will be held at the space on Saturday, April 30 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The official civic address is 5158 Hwy 140, Suite A.

Refreshments will be provided at this event by the Mariposa Lions Club. Bob Johns, the local Veterans Services Officer, will be on hand to answer questions alongside representatives from the Fresno Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

“Easy to find, easy to get to for veterans,” Johns said of the new location. “It’s more public access, it’s easier access. You don’t have to walk in and register and sit in a waiting room and do that stuff while you wait to see someone.

The office was recently housed in the Mariposa County Health and Human Services Agency building near Lemee Lane.

The long list of services available inside the new centrally located spot has remained the same. These offers are on the right.

• Service-related disability benefits • Non-service-related disability pension benefits • Dependency allowance benefits
• Reimbursement of burial allowance
• Assistance and right of attendance
• California Tuition Waiver Program
• Requests for military records
• Veterans Affairs medical care and access to eligibility • Vocational rehabilitation benefits
• Veterans Life Insurance
• State Veterans Homes
• Other benefits and ancillary programs

Johns said the new building “just seems to work a lot better for veterans.” As a lone office worker, he has already seen an increase in foot traffic. Readers wanting more information about the services offered inside can do so by calling him at (209) 966-3696.

“If they talk to me or call me…we’re able to walk them through all that stuff,” Johns explained. “And not just veterans, but veterans’ families are just as important.”

Johns served in the United States Navy during the Vietnam War. He thanked the Mariposa County Board of Supervisors, past and present, for their support of the office. Johns has served as Mariposa’s Veterans Service Officer since 2005.
