TSU’s Small Farms Expo highlights state’s agricultural diversity and continuing expansion

Expo Farm
NASHVILLE – (TSU News Service) – From beekeeping in Franklin County to crop growing in Williamson County, and 4-H and adult agriculture in Bledsoe County, the 2014 Tennessee State University Small Farms Expo highlighted the diversity in the state’s vast agricultural industry.
 
Participation in the Expo (July 17th) also showcased the University’s outreach initiatives through its Cooperative Extension Program, now covering more than 50 counties across Tennessee.

What are SEP IRAs?

money matters
A simplified employee pension plan (SEP) is a deferred-compensation arrangement that is similar to a profit-sharing plan. It can be set up by employers and self-employed individuals, as well as sole proprietorships and partnerships. Employers receive tax deductions for plan contributions made to employees’ accounts, and employees do not pay taxes on SEP contributions until they begin taking distributions (generally, in retirement).
 
Thus, SEPs can be attractive to both the employer and the employee.

‘Straight Outta Compton’ casting call is a straight up mess

Compton
Production has begun on Straight Outta Compton, the biopic about N.W.A. and Universal Studios is looking to cast more people for it.
 
They’re apparently working with Sande Allesi Casting, and the agency posted a call for the film that placed women in the categories A-B-C-D (it was on the agency’s Facebook page but was deleted. Gawker has the text).
 
The casting call created a pyramid of girls needed and ranked it in a way that is so offensive that I almost want to laugh at its wrongness and boldness. Did Donald Sterling write this? I read it and asked Jesus to take the wheel, hold my mule and be a fence.
