President Trump projected to win Ohio

first_img– Advertisement – But with Trump’s commanding victory in 2016 and a near Republican sweep in 2018 statewide races, Ohio’s battleground state status had been in question.Polling trackers had given little indication of which candidate held a clear advantage in Ohio heading into Election Day. RealClearPolitics showed Biden with a slim lead over Trump that tightened to a neck-and-neck race in the final days of the cycle.This is breaking news. Check back for updates. President Donald Trump is projected to win Ohio over former Vice President Joe Biden, according to NBC News.Ohio has 18 Electoral College votes. Polling averages had indicated a tight race in a state where Trump won by a convincing 8 points in 2016.Long considered a bellwether for national politics, Ohio has voted for the winning presidential candidate in every election since 1964.

Five-year tax change proposed

first_imgThe report outlined how the increase would affect specific residential properties. For example, a residential property owner on 103 Ave. whose property assessment increased from $239,000 to $247,000 would pay $46 more in taxes in 2011 than in 2010. The average tax increase for residential property owners across Fort St. John would be approximately $63 in 2011.Despite Council’s decision to consider a decrease to both business and light industry property owners, Councillor Lori Ackerman said the City should consider where property owners reside. Ackerman said the City should try not to give multinational corporations, with owners who live outside Fort St. John, tax breaks at the expense of the City’s residential property owners. Rather, Ackerman said she would prefer to give any potential tax breaks to corporations with local owners.Furthermore, Councillor Dan Davies said the City would most likely review the tax rate changes in one year since there is at least one factor that could sway the current classification and tax rate system. Davies said B.C. Assessment is being asked to review many light industrial properties across the province since some might be incorrectly classified.Some light industry properties might actually belong under the heavy industry classification or the business classification. If any of the light industrial properties in the Fort St. John have their classifications altered, the change could impact how much the property owner would pay and thus, how much the City would collect in taxes.Advertisement The proposal will now go through a public consultation process, which will take place at a later date. Property owners are likely to see changes to their tax rates after Fort St. John City Council approved a motion to consider a phased tax ratio adjustment over a five-year period.On Monday, Council, during its committee of the whole meeting, voted in favour of presenting the five-year tax adjustment plan at a public meeting.- Advertisement -Council was presented with three potential options – three-, four- or five-years – for phasing in a decrease in the tax ratios for businesses and light industrial property owners, alongside an increase in the tax burden being placed on residential property owners.After significant debate, Council ultimately chose to proceed with a five-year plan, to minimize the potential burden on residential property owners.On the one hand, the plan would result in a drop in the tax rate for both light industrial properties and businesses within Fort St. John. Light industrial property owners would see a drop of approximately 2.48 per cent from 28.19 in 2010 to 25.71 per cent in 2011 and business property owners would see a less than one per cent drop from 14.37 in 2010 to 14.09 per cent in 2011.On the other hand, residential property owners would face a tax increase of 0.02 per cent from 5.05 last year to 5.07 this year.Advertisementlast_img read more

Since you asked Can you have sex in Skyrim

first_imgAs the first gaming generation continues to mature (read: get older), the games that are being created to capture their hearts and minds continue to do so as well. With games like The Witcher, Mass Effect, and even Fable all containing sexual content of some nature, it’s apparent that developers have begun to realize that putting such content has appeal to gamers and probably doesn’t hurt sales numbers. So what about a hit title like Skyrim? Did Bethesda decide to include adult-oriented content in its hit RPG? If you’re looking to bring the sexy back in the super popular game, know this: you cannot have sex in Skyrim. That’s because the title, and the current list of mods, does not enable the full “experience” so to speak (God of War 3 comes to mind). However, there are some things you can install and do in the game to tide you over until the inevitable flood of mods that will satisfy your most base and primal of desires. While we won’t point the way to where you can download all the nude mods — they are easy to find anyway– we can show you how to find the love of your life in the game and live happily ever after.Take a gander at the video above, courtesy of YouTuber Pinrose331. It walks you through how to take marriage vows with your person of choice. Gamers will be happy to know that marriage is equal opportunity and quite progressive in the land of the Nords: you can marry NPCs of the same sex as your character. And you won’t even have to wait for a vote to legalize it in your village! Leave it to Bethesda to be forward-thinking in that regard. Again while you can tie the knot in the game, consummating the relationship is not something that Bethesda has included. Right now, the game leaves it all up to your imagination as you can actually sleep (meaning closing your eyes and resting) with your partner, but that’s about all. There are no juicy love scenes to be had unfortunately. Not to worry however, as there looks to be several mods in development that will add realism to your marital beds. In the meantime, you can download some extensions that will add some eye-candy to your experience.If being tied down with matrimonial bliss isn’t what you were looking for from your RPG experience, perhaps you would be interested in the obligatory chainmail bikini mod that is pictured above. A simple mod that replaces the underwear of female characters with chainmail, it’s probably one of the easier mods you can use.While there is no “hot-coffee” available yet for Skyrim, give it some time and I’m sure that someone will create a mod that will give you the ability to enable full on relations in the game. Of course, with the plethora of real women on the internet that are willing to bear it all, why would you need a video game mod?last_img read more
