I applaud the legislature for recognizing that success and cementing the one-stop shop into statute.”The PA Business One-Stop Shop was developed to address identified areas of need for entrepreneurs and small business owners across the commonwealth and assists with planning a business, registration and permitting, hiring employees, and funding and technical assistance. The PA Business One-Stop Shop consolidates information from many agencies into one easy-to-use website. It is intended to take the guesswork out of many business operations and procedures and serves as an equalizer for any who want to start and run a business in Pennsylvania.Governor Wolf initially proposed the PA Business One-Stop Shop in his budget address for the 2017-18 fiscal year, and officially launched the program one year later during his 2018-2019 budget address in February 2018. The One-Stop Shop has quickly built momentum since launch, generating more than 71,000 unique visits to the website and receiving critical buy-in and support from partners across the commonwealth like Small Business Development Centers. When Governor Wolf signs HB1284 into law, it will cement the PA Business One-Stop Shop into statute and secure its future.In addition to the PA Business One-Stop Shop website, aspiring entrepreneurs or current business owners can also call a phone number, (833)722-6778, to connect to a team of dedicated business consultants and subject matter experts who can answer questions. Together, the website and team of experts will help guide and support businesses through all stages of development from planning and startup to operation and expansion.The PA Business One-Stop Shop can be found at business.pa.gov.

Marriage website crashes after launch

first_imgNZ Herald 30 July 2012An anti-gay marriage website has had a few teething problems – it crashed shortly after launch and a US band is appalled one of its songs has been used without permission. The band, Train,  was yesterday informed via Twitter that the video for their song Marry Me had been used on protectmarriage.org.nz, which was launched over the weekend to galvanise opposition to Labour MP Louisa Wall’s Marriage Equality Bill. “Didn’t know. Getting it off asap. Tnx 4 tip,” the band wrote in response to Kiwi user Mikey_J_S. As of midday today however, the song was still embedded in the website’s homepage. Wall’s bill, which was drawn from the ballot last week, seeks to define marriage as a union of two people, “regardless of their sex, sexual orientation or gender identity”. However the new website claims marriage is defined as “one man, one woman”. The National Marriage Coalition New Zealand, Family First NZ, FamilyLife NZ, and Focus on the Family have combined to create the website. Earlier today the site appeared to have crashed temporarily. Visitors to the site received a pop-up internal server error message. It said the most likely cause of the site crash was website maintenance or a programming error.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10823203last_img read more

Varela makes Baggies move

first_img The Portugal international has joined on a season-long deal to become Albion’s 10th new recruit of the transfer window. Baggies head coach Alan Irvine said: “Silvestre is a vastly-experienced player, both with Porto and his national team, and I’m delighted we’ve managed to secure his services. Press Association West Brom have continued their squad overhaul by signing Porto winger Silvestre Varela on loan.center_img “He’s got pace and power, gets his fair share of goals and is also a creator of chances for others. “He’s a fantastic addition to our squad.” Varela played for his country at this summer’s World Cup in Brazil, coming off the bench to score in their group game against the United States, which ended in a 2-2 draw. The 29-year-old right-sided player has won 26 caps in total and netted five international goals. Varela came through Sporting Lisbon’s youth system and had spells on loan from the club at Casa Pia, Vitoria Setubal and Recreativo Huelva. He made a permanent move from Sporting to Estrela Amadora in the summer of 2008 before sealing a switch the following year to Porto. last_img read more

Beat writers predict Pittsburgh to beat Syracuse at Heinz Field

first_imgPhil D’Abbraccio: Pittsburgh 21, Syracuse 13The Pitt gets deeperOn the bright side, Syracuse’s young quarterbacks face a good test in Pittsburgh’s pass defense, ranked fourth in the Atlantic Coast Conference, as they develop. That experience will serve them well in the future, but not on Saturday afternoon. And Pitt’s James Conner, with bowl eligibility on the line, steamrolls the Orange defense like no running back has this season.Jesse Dougherty: Pittsburgh 28, Syracuse 14The Pitts Syracuse is playing with nothing to lose but there’s also a reason for that. From what players and coaches said during the week, the Orange will use the game to get a good look at its three young quarterbacks. In turn, AJ Long, Austin Wilson and Mitch Kimble will most likely have a hard time finding a rhythm and that’s bad news for an offense that struggles to score as is.Jacob Klinger: Pittsburgh 25, Syracuse 14Pittch imperfectThe Orange is a rejuvenated team coming off a bye week. But re-energizing a team that too closely resembled The Walking Dead just gives you a squad of more flexible, excited zombies that can and will put a scare into Pittsburgh — but ultimately can’t contain running back James Conner for four quarters.
