History Colorado used the structure at an event earlier in December to showcase the benefits of historic preservation and of its tax-credit program, which helps finance such preservation. Continue ReadingPurchased in 2016 by Carolyn Corogin, a Denver-based developer and architect at C2 Studio US, the temple was then vacant and dilapidated. With the goal of rehabbing it for a modern use, Corogin "worked with the City of Brighton and Brighton’s Japanese American Association members, many of whom grew up going to the temple as children in the 1940s and 50s," History Colorado says. "Their realtor brought Nathaniel and Andrea Miller, the husband-and-wife team that owns the brewery, through for a tour, and it all came together. The brewery relocated to downtown Brighton, and opened for business about a year ago."The Historic preservation tax-credit program has been available since 1990 and was bolstered by a 2014 Colorado state law that established a $10 million annual fund for … [Read more...] about Beer Calendar: Glitter Balls, New Year’s Eve and a Hazy Sunday

The wallets of Japanese residents may get a little lighter next year, as the prices of most goods and services are set to rise under a new consumption tax system starting in October 2019.Under this new system, consumers may have at least some reprieve, as taxes on important household items — mostly food and beverages — will remain at the existing 8 percent rate, while levies on almost all other goods and services will rise to 10 percent.Although adopting a consumption tax with multiple rates can lighten the burden on those with lower incomes, there is growing confusion over how to differentiate which items will be taxed at the regular or preferential rates.The Abe government pushed for a multiple tax rate system, paired with other new stimulus measures, to help shield the economy from the deleterious effects of the tax hikes.And government forecasters and international institutions appear confident that these measures will help avoid a repeat of the 2014 consumption tax … [Read more...] about To what extent will Japan’s 2014 downturn repeat with the new tax hike?
The 2019 Formula One calendar has been released, while the pre-season test dates have also now been confirmed. Following a meeting of the World Motorsport Council last week, the FIA have released the planned schedule for the 2019 season.

After much delay, the 2019 pre-season test dates have also been confirmed. Spain’s Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will hold eight days of testing over two weeks, as has been the norm in recent years.

England's Premier League has agreed to introduce a winter break in a historic move to give players a rest during an increasingly crowded season, the Football Association (FA) announced Friday. The break -- which falls short of those taken in mainland European leagues -- will give the 20 Premier League teams a weekend off football in February beginning in the 2019/20 campaign. Five matches will be played one weekend with the second batch of five the following weekend. The FA's part of the bargain -- also agreed with the English Football League responsible for the divisions outside the Premier League -- is to switch FA Cup fifth round ties to midweek in that period. In addition they will have to be played to achieve a result with no possibility of a replay as was the case before. "This is a significant moment for English football and one that we believe will greatly benefit both club and country," said FA chief executive Martin Glenn. "It's no secret that we have a very congested fixture … [Read more...] about Premier League teams to get weekend off in February as PL apporves winter break
