    A Gigantic Organizational Problem Why do we care about professional baseball, or sports teams generally? Ask people in Boston or Atlanta, Tampa Bay or St. Louis. Noman thinks it's that rooting for a team is an initiation into a culture, a history, a tradition, a people. The club confers its identity on all who root for it, and all who play for it if the player let's it. We belong. And, that's important to people. The San Francisco Giants tenure as Major League Baseball's defending Champions ended in a whimper the other night with a 15-2 thumping at the bats...
  • Beltran has Some Taxing Decisions

    If Beltran is looking to save a couple hundred thousand dollars, he also might want to sign before Jan. 12 and load up his contract in signing bonus money. That's because a 46-year-old loophole on signing bonuses will be closing next Wednesday. For the rest of the American public, signing bonuses count as wages earned, with both the employer and employee having to pay taxes under FICA (the Federal Insurance Contribution Act). But in 1958, baseball players -- the exclusion for other athletes later became understood -- were exempt from FICA taxes on their signing bonuses because it was determined...

    It was one thing for Carlos Beltran to stand at home plate and hit the three-run double May 29 that gave the Kansas City Royals a 5-2 victory over the Minnesota Twins at Kauffman Stadium. It was another thing for Beltran, the Royals centerfielder, to stand near home plate after the game and give his testimony to about 10,000 fans gathered for the second annual Christian Family Day at the Kaufman Stadium. One thing he does for a living; the other thing he does in obedience to a higher calling. Beltran, 27, is a relatively new believer who needed the...

QUEPASA.COM Phoenix, Arizona, U.S., December 6, 2003 ( - Although it is difficult for the United States government to admit Consular Registration as valid since it is issued by the Mexican government to is citizens residing in North America, the truth is that almost 90 per cent of cities in Arizona, just to give an example, already accept this document as valid ID. It is precisely thanks to the number of newly opened savings accounts rising from 2002 to the present in the state, explained Mexican Consul...
