), and Annika Kjærgaard (born 18 May 1971, Bjarnum, Sweden). Their first single, "Shine On", was a hit in Sweden, but it was with their second release, "Crying at the Discoteque" (which heavily sampled Sheila and B. Devotion (Sheila (and) B. Devotion) 1979 hit "Spacer") they achieved success across Europe. Both singles appeared on their debut album (album), ''Casino'', written and produced by Swedish record producers Alexander Bard and Anders
Hansson .

'' reached number 2 in Australia and featured the top ten hit "Change of Heart", but it did not sell as well as previous albums. In 1996 the greatest hits compilation ''Hits'' returned Jimmy Barnes to the top of Australian charts, along with the hit single "Lover Lover". It was the beginning of a comeback that was hastened by the reformation of Cold Chisel in 1998. In 2008 Lowy and related interests were mentioned in documents stolen from the LGT Bank of Lichtenstein by a former employee. A subsequent US Senate probe and an Australian Taxation Office audit in which Lowy and his sons, David and Steven, were investigated on their involvement with financial institutions in tax havens located in Liechtenstein and Switzerland.

Extensions can be made available. Each year, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) publishes TaxPack, a free document designed to help individuals complete their return. TaxPack is available free from most newsagents and can also be downloaded. '''Cridland v Federal Commissioner of Taxation''' was a 1977 High Court of Australia case concerning a novel tax scheme whereby some 5,000 university students became primary producers (as in farmers) for tax purposes, allowing them certain income averaging benefits. The Australian Taxation Office held this was tax avoidance, but the test case was decided in favour of the taxpayer, one of the students, Brian Cridland. The Australian Taxation Office decided the scheme was a form of tax avoidance, and under the general anti-avoidance provision of ITAA section 260 (which was operative at that time) they ignored Cridland's interest in the trusts and issued assessments for tax years ending 30 June 1970, 1971 and 1972 accordingly. Cridland took the matter to the Supreme Court of New South Wales, where Justice Mahoney agreed with the commissioner. Justice Wootten was apparently very unimpressed by the whole business and it seems would have welcomed the opportunity to make orders for the protection of fund members. In his report he cited the court rules that required him to accept discontinuation by the plaintiff. What he did do though was have his report sent to the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) and to the New South Wales Attorney-General (New South Wales Attorney-General's Department). '''Mullens v Federal Commissioner of Taxation''' was a 1976 High Court of Australia tax case concerning arrangements where stockbrokers Mullens & Co accessed tax deductions for monies subscribed to a petroleum exploration company. The Australian Taxation Office held the scheme was tax avoidance, but the court found for the taxpayer. In the Supreme Court the Australian Taxation Office argued that either the two Vam transactions above were shams, or that if they were real then they came under the section 260 (Income Tax Assessment Act 1936#Section 260) anti-avoidance provisions of the Income Tax Assessment Act 1936. Income taxes are the most significant form of taxation in Australia, and collected by the federal government (Government of Australia) through the Australian Taxation Office. Australian GST (Goods and Services Tax (Australia)) revenue is collected by the Federal government, and then paid to the states under a distribution formula determined by the Commonwealth Grants Commission. '''Fringe Benefits Tax''' is the tax applied by the Australian Taxation Office to most, although not all, fringe benefits, which are generally non-cash benefits. Most fringe benefits are also reported on employee payment summaries for inclusion on personal income tax return (Tax return (Australia))s that must be lodged annually. During his election campaign Rudd called on Australian federal agencies including the anti-money laundering (w:Money laundering) agency Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre (w:Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre) (AUSTRAC), the Australian Federal Police, the Australian Taxation Office (w:Australian Taxation Office), and the Australian Electoral Commission (w:Australian Electoral Commission) to investigate the activities of Raven-Taylor-Hales Brethren. In spite of Rudd's criticism of Raven-Taylor-Hales Brethren, the religious group was guaranteed AUD (w:Australian dollar)10 million in taxpayer funding for its school facilities in January 2008. Rudd had promised during his election campaign to maintain education funding levels for non-government schools if he became Prime Minister.
to Nottingham, with most of its traffic originating from the A50, and the rest from the A42. This section of the road follows the route of the former B679. A new section of road was built from junction 24 of the M1 to Ratcliffe-on-Soar power station (which opened in 1968), as the (late 1960s) £222,000 section, the Link road from Ratcliffe Power Station to M1. This became the A648 when completed in 1970, extending along the present B679 to West Bridgford, then the A453 in 1978, when it was diverted from its Long Eaton route.

with Frank Sinatra on his "Trilogy" album, in which they sang a version of the country music hit "For the Good Times".

(The average high tide at Bangor is June 22, 1925) was a United States Senator from North Dakota.

Fijian (Fijian language) words meaning ''"spear hit."'' According to an oral tradition, the name arose following a duel between two chiefs (Ratu). As one speared the other, he was reported to have cried ''"Lau-toka!"'' The first known European sighting of the Lautoka area took place on 7 May 1789. Captain (Captain (nautical)) William Bligh spotted and roughly charted the coasts of Lautoka while making his epic voyage to Timor, in the wake of the mutiny on the ''Bounty'' (Mutiny on the Bounty) in which he and a few sailors loyal to him were thrown overboard and cast adrift on a life boat. Politics Ratilal Patel was a mayor in 1967. Incorporated as a town in 1929, Lautoka was proclaimed a city on 25 February 1977. It is governed by a 16-member city council (Lautoka City Council), who elect from among themselves a Mayor. lautoka currently does not have a mayor but has a government appointed mayor like all urban centres in Fiji since the military coup of 2006 the current administrator is praveen Bala who is a former mayor of ba 4. Lautoka is the only city in Fiji's Western Division (Western Division, Fiji),and is the industrial hub of Fiji which contains more than 50 percent of the nation's population. It is also the headquarters of the Fiji Electricity Authority, the Fiji Pine Ltd, and the National Marketing Authority. Mass Media The headquarters and studios of Mix FM Fiji are located in Lautoka. With National coverage, MixFM is the only English station in Fiji to be based outside of Suva. Demography Since 1970, the population of Lautoka has grown rapidly, and in the last twenty years it has also changed dramatically in structure. In the early 1970s the population was estimated to be about 12,000, the vast majority of inhabitants being Indian (Indo-Fijian), as would be expected considering the early growth of the city was entirely associated with the sugar industry. almost all of the present Indian inhabitants are descendants of the early girmityas. In 1986 the population was 39,000 and in 1996 almost 43,000, but it is not clear exactly how the boundaries of the urban area were defined at either of these censuses. In 2005 the population including the suburban zones was probably about 50,000, occupying a total area of about 16 km². The population of Lautoka including the rural districts is around 80,000. But much of the recent growth of the city itself has been due to indigenous Fijians moving into the urban area. The city is the birthplace of PGA Tour Hall of Famer (World Golf Hall of Fame) Vijay Singh and Ghazal and Tabla star Cassius Khan. Notes and references External links * Wikipedia:Lautoka ----
