Accounting and finance professors Jim and Kay Stice will make filing this year's taxes a bit easier for you by explaining basic taxation concepts and terminology. In this course, they cover topics such as taxable income, tax brackets, average tax rates, withholdings, deductions, and credits, and explain the motivation behind federal tax deductions for mortgages, dependents, and charitable giving. They review the steps involved in filing a personal income tax return, address some of the issues that corporations and small businesses face in filing their returns, and cover the benefits of tax planning.
Since the mid-'80s, Barrence Whitfield has dedicated his life to reminding people that rock & roll and rhythm & blues are not separate but equal institutions, but healthy branches of the same tree; on-stage or in the studio, Whitfield howls vintage R&B tunes with the fury of a hot-wired rock band, and belts out vintage-style rock with a healthy portion of swagger and soul. In Whitfield's world, it's all loud and furious, and makes you want to dance, and really, who doesn't want some of that in their life? After a detour through other projects, Whitfield resurrected the Savages in 2011, and 2015's Under the Savage Sky, the group's third album since returning to duty, stands proudly alongside mid-'80s landmarks like Dig Yourself and Ow! Ow! Ow! as a master class in souped-up and full-bodied roadhouse rocking.
