Fortunately, I have my own website at http://www.donnakakonge.com and although I know how to do one, I didn’t have the time. I’m not alone. Many small and large businesses with extremely capable people to do a site will outsource this work to save time and money.

ROCHESTER, N.Y., Nov. 4, 2013 /CNW/ – Vuzix Corporation (OTCQB: VUZI) (“Vuzix”), a leading developer and supplier of smart glasses, advises that, further to its: (i) Amendment No. 5 to its Registration Statement (filed on Form S-1) filed with applicable securities regulators on July 29, 2013; (ii) pricing prospectus dated July 30, 2013 filed with applicable securities regulators on July 30, 2013; and (iii) press releases dated July 30, 2013 and July 31, 2013, Vuzix today received a delisting notice from TSX Venture Exchange advising that the shares of Vuzix common stock (symbol VZX) will be delisted from the TSX Venture Exchange as a result of the common stock being sold and issued at a greater than 20% discount to the then current market price.

Ontario Government Making it Easier for Not-for-Profits to Do Business

June 5, 2013

Amendments Pave the Way for Proclamation of Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act

Ontario is one step closer to proclaiming the Ontario Not-for-Profit Corporations Act, 2010 (ONCA) – legislation that will increase accountability and transparency for not-for-profit corporations and that will make it easier for them to operate and do business in today’s marketplace.

The Ontario government is introducing amendments, as part of the Companies Statute Law Amendment Act, 2013, that must be in place before ONCA can be proclaimed. Many of the amendments, if passed, would update references to the 60-year-old Corporations Act that currently governs most not-for-profit corporations in the province.

Making it easier for the province’s not-for-profit organizations to do business is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to strengthen the economy and build a fair society for all.

QUICK FACTS

  • Over 50,000 not-for-profit corporations contribute more than $50 billion annually to Ontario’s economy, and about 16 per cent of the Ontario workforce is employed in the not-for-profit sector.
  • More than half of Ontarians do some form of volunteering in the not-for-profit sector.
  • ONCA is targeted to come into effect six months after passage of this legislation.

QUOTES

“This is an essential step we need to take to complete the important journey we began three years ago. A thriving, modern not-for-profit sector is depending on us to fulfill the commitment we made with ONCA to unleash the creativity and energy of this sector.”
— Tracy MacCharles, Minister of Consumer Services
“The Ontario Nonprofit Network has been an active participant in the development of ONCA, and is eager to see this important legislation proclaimed. The amendments introduced today are a crucial step. Our network is actively preparing to make the transition to ONCA, and to continue to build vibrant, resilient communities in Ontario.”
— Cathy Taylor, Executive Director, Ontario Nonprofit Network

Ontario Government Boosting Support for Entrepreneurs, Creating Jobs

Ontario is making it easier for people to start and grow successful businesses by streamlining and improving its business support services.

The new Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs  is a one-stop shop for anyone involved in planning, launching or building a company — whether it’s a main street retailer, a high-tech start-up, or a growing manufacturer.

The network’s new website will connect entrepreneurs across the province to advisors in their communities, who can help with everything from writing a business plan to developing a strategy to export products. Experts can also help researchers and high-tech entrepreneurs bring their discoveries to market, launch new companies and create jobs.

The Ontario Network of Entrepreneurs is part of the new government’s plan to help innovators succeed and build a prosperous and fair province.

QUICK FACTS

  • Since 2007, Ontario’s three advisory networks helped launch and grow close to 72,500 companies, and helped create or retain almost 200,000 jobs.
  • The new network will give entrepreneurs access to business advisors, strategists and market analysts in 86 offices across Ontario.
  • Ontario has invested $3.6 billion in research and innovation across the province since 2003.
  • The 2013 Ontario Budget proposes to establish a Youth Jobs Strategy of $295 million over two years to create jobs and mentorship opportunities for about 30,000 youth and promote entrepreneurship and innovation.
  • The government is holding consultations on the Youth Jobs Strategy across the province throughout May.

Supporting Small Businesses in Eastern Ontario

May 14, 2013

Ontario Government Fosters Regional Economic Growth to Create Jobs

Premier Kathleen Wynne visited Anchor Concrete in Kingston today, where she highlighted the government’s commitment to supporting small businesses, allowing them to create more jobs and support regional economic growth.

The new 2013 Budget includes an increase to the Employer Health Tax (EHT) exemption, which would bring relief to small businesses and make it easier for them to hire new employees.

If the Budget bill is passed and proclaimed, the exemption would be increased from $400,000 to $450,000 beginning Jan. 1, 2014.  This would have a positive impact for more than 60,000 employers across Ontario, including 12,000 that would no longer pay EHT.

The government is also supporting regional economic growth through initiatives such as the Eastern Ontario Development Fund (EODF) and the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund (SWODF), which support local companies, promote regional economic development and enhance Ontario’s overall economic competitiveness.

Through the 2013 Budget, the government wants to create jobs and support regional economies, while helping people with their everyday lives.

QUICK FACTS

  • If the proposed Employer Health Tax exemption is implemented, 88 per cent of Ontario private sector employers would not pay EHT nor incur the compliance costs of filing an EHT return.
  • Since it launched in 2008, the EODF has helped to create and protect more than 14,000 jobs in eastern Ontario. The EODF was made permanent in October, 2012.
  • Following the success of the EODF, the government launched the Southwestern Ontario Development Fund in October, 2012. It has helped to create and protect 2,200 jobs.

QUOTES

“We want companies like Anchor Concrete to be able to hire new employees and keep driving Ontario’s economic growth. Increasing the Employer Health Tax exemption and investing in regional support programs like the EODF are an important part of our plan to help businesses expand and create more jobs.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario
“We are focused on fostering a strong business environment with a competitive tax system. This will help small businesses across the province grow, create more jobs and ultimately strengthen Ontario’s economy.”
— Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Employment
“Our government is working to make sure every part of this province can prosper. That’s why I’m pleased to be here with Premier Wynne to outline our government’s plan to support small businesses in Kingston and the Islands and across the province. We are doing everything we can to help people in their everyday lives.”
— John Gerretsen, MPP, Kingston and the Islands

It teaches you not only the basics about reading, writing, math and a concentrated area of study – it also teaches you a lot about yourself. It is a shame though that the cost of education often makes it difficult for some people to take the route of enlightenment. Read the rest of this entry »
