Supersedes Employer Information Circular Volume 27, Issue 5 The purpose of this circular is to clarify the options available to employers regarding the reporting and remitting of contributions and the impact to members. The new contribution rate would be effective on July 1, The employer contribution rate will continue to increase as per the schedule set in statute. For fiscal year —19, the employer contribution rate to the Defined Benefit Program is Pension Solution, the CalSTRS project to replace the current pension system technology and processes, is well underway.

Before the conclusion of this significant project, multiple systems used by employers, CalSTRS staff and members will be replaced. The creditable compensation limit applies to compensation creditable to the Defined Benefit, Defined Benefit Supplement and Cash Balance Benefit programs. CalSTRS bCompare program resulted from legislation requiring CalSTRS to create an online resource for free objective information about b products offered by vendors that are registered with bCompare.

The purpose of this circular is to inform employers and other stakeholders of the decision-making process involved in determining the actuarial assumptions and to provide information regarding the impact and timing of any potential contribution rate increases for certain CalSTRS members and the state that may result from changes to these assumptions. In response to concerns about the difficulty employers are having in hiring teachers, including substitute teachers, during the current teacher shortage, the purpose of this circular is to inform employers that existing law provides for an exemption to the separation-from-service requirement imposed immediately after retirement if the retired CalSTRS Defined Benefit Program member or Cash Balance Benefit Program participant receiving an annuity is hired in a critically needed position and meets other eligibility criteria.

It was not intended to take precedence over the law.Being a professor, I'm told, is one of the most rewarding professions a person can perform. Not surprisingly, we seem to retire later than most, and keep working at our profession even after that, right to our last moments. We will teach adjunct for our favorite course, take on special projects for our schools, do more speaking, and almost always more writing and reviewing, some producing their magnum opus after retirement.

Being professors of Bible and related areas, we may devote more time to our local church, or preaching at needy congregations. And we will always keep reading, maybe a bit more fiction and biography than we did earlier but still we have our eye on the next biblical or theological volume read.

As students, educators, and scholars, we hold in deep admiration and devotion our dear professors. They gain a special place of endearment in our hearts because they—each in their own way—nurtured us in our path toward being professors and scholars and studied preachers ourselves. We owe them so much for who we have become. I have seen giants of my life pass, I.

Just the utterance of one of the names conjures up classroom memories—even memories of specific things learned. What a loss to so many when they go on to be with the Lord. When preparing this issue, I planned that we would honor the memory of one special colleague who taught at Lincoln Christian Seminary for over 25 years, Gary Hall, who died on June 15,at the age of 78, after a long battle with brain cancer and other complications.

The very handsome volume includes very good articles, five from former students who have earned doctorates in OT, plus seven by Lincoln colleagues and academic friends. Unfortunately, Mosaic located in Australia has closed and no copies are now available to the public other than through libraries.

After not hearing back regarding one author's final read-through of his article being published in this issue, I did some digging only to discover that he had passed two months before Gary.

Daniel Fletcher, who taught for Amridge University from his home in Norwood, Pemmsylvania, died on March 27,at the age of He died due to complications from cystic fibrosis which he dealt with his whole life.

And even later, as I was editing through the book reviews, I discovered we also have a review in this issue of Daniel's last book, published intitled: Psalms of Christ: The Messiah in Non-Messianic Psalms. Publication of Daniel's article and review of his book stand as a memorium to him in this issue. I was fortunate to be a good friend of Gary's and was blessed to be able to see him shortly before his passing. He seemed gratified that his life work as a professor was recognized by the Lifetime Achievement Award we were able to present to him by video at this year's SCJ Conference at Johnson University.

He so much deserved to be only our third honoree of this award, his life serving as a picture-perfect role model of a scholar-teacher with a pastor's heart. He served as consulting editor for thirteen years, for much of that time also managing Old Testament book reviews as well as evaluating OT articles that I received.

He has been a constant presence at the SCJ Conference from the beginning, delivering numerous parallel sessions. He is among the original few who for the eight years before that was part of just a handful of scholars who held "Fellowship of Professors" meetings while I was at St. Louis Christian College giving a paper as early as With fewer attendees, I was constantly in need of people to present papers, and Gary would always come through to present his well-prepared papers, usually on Deuteronomy, one of the books to which he devoted his life.

I still remember with deep gratitude my first contact with Gary in while he was dean at Kentucky Christian College. I was a PhD student near to completing my degree in New Testament at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland, sending out resumes to deans for potential job hopes.

Gary responded with the most encouraging letter of all. Not knowing me at all, he gave me hope to keep moving toward my future to teach. Little did I know then that Gary would wind up being such a good friend and advisor. He has been a treasure to be able to know. I did not know Daniel Fletcher, but I have seen the posts of several former students who speak of gratitude and thanksgiving for his influence on them.Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford.

This study assessed the burnout levels of secondary school physical education teachers in Singapore and identified some specific work conditions related to burnout.

The level of burnout was assessed by a burnout inventory compiled by Pines and Aronson A bivariate correlation established the relationship between burnout and the four dimensions. Multiple regression determined the relationship between burnout and the demographic data. It was found that physical education teachers in Singapore experienced only moderate levels of burnout. However, there was no significant relationship between the demographic data age, gender, race, marital status, position, years of teaching, and educational level and burnout among teachers.

Pages: — Restricted access. Citation Alerts Get Permissions. Subscription Offers. Abstract Author Notes. Journal of Teaching in Physical Education.This paper considers the patterns of inequality in wage and salaries across labour markets in Australia. Using data sourced from the Australian Taxation Office and the Australian Bureau of Statistics, the paper develops several measures of wage and salary inequality and considers both the regional differences in, and the potential drivers of, inequality at the regional level.

The research reported illustrates the uneven nature of the wage inequality issue across Australian regions, illustrating the regional winners and losers in terms of inequality outcomes, and suggests that a number of regional level factors may be important in understanding the differences in inequality outcomes reported.

Evaluation of regional public infrastructure projects is needed to ensure the effective and efficient use of scarce taxpayer funds. There are several methods used to evaluate public infrastructure projects, including cost benefit analysis CBA and economic impact analysis EIA. CBA is widely used by governments to estimate the real social value of a project. However, CBA does not necessarily account for regional impacts such as the effects on employment and growth and, thus, may not be adequate to properly measure regional impacts against related government policy objectives.

This paper reviews the pros and cons of both CBA and EIA and presents an empirical analysis of both appraisal approaches. Consumers are the focus of this paper, which draws on the concepts of alterity and embeddedness to reveal a range of motivations and consumer engagement.

The findings reveal a surprising mix of reflexivity and re-embedding shaped by both regional culture and individual motivations. Common across all participants was a sincere commitment to the local community and their attachment to ethical consumption.

A common fiscal reform stemming from national tax reviews in Australia and New Zealand recommend improving tax effort from recurrent land value taxation. This paper examines the status of the administration of recurrent land and property taxation, how it has evolved and how it might be reformed in achieving additional revenue that would benefit regional New Zealand and Australia.

A simulation approach is used to examine how land value is determined and define the factors that have resulted in the transition to alternate bases of value, used by local government in parts of Australia and New Zealand, to assess council rates.

The paper finds that while challenges exist in the determination of value in highly urbanised locations, a codified approach can be used to create a uniform basis of value on which land may be taxed. The paper concludes that challenges confronting the determination of land value should not deter an impost on land and that land is a base among other forms of taxation that may be equalised to assist funding in regional Australia and New Zealand.

The potential development of an oil industry in the Great Australian Bight provides a number of opportunities and challenges. Potentially, the development may affect local communities, regional economies and the environment. Developing a baseline, before any development takes place, enables changes due to the development being better identified and understood. The aim of this study was to develop a comprehensive baseline for the social and economic environment of the region most likely to be impacted by the development of an oil industry in the Great Australian Bight.

The baseline study identified that the region is characterised by a small and sparsely distributed population, highly dependent on primary industries for the most part. The study also identified that there is a strong attachment to place in the region, with the current pristine coastal and marine environment a key factor underlying this attachment.

The purpose of this study is to examine important dimensions related to regional trade cooperation that range from facilitation measures to trade barriers and the implications of these in Regional Trade Agreements RTAs. In particular, the study explores some of the implications of RTAs on the business community in Fiji, with a special focus on exporters. This paper has adopted a triangulation method that incorporates the use of survey research, interviews and descriptive statistics.

The findings of the research highlight that the vast majority of firms also do not utilise the free trade provisions laid out in RTAs and very few felt the relevance of these RTAs in terms their exports. The results reveal that the utilisation of RTAs depends on the support of state institutions related to exporting. Nevertheless, the firms have revealed that they have seen increased competition post RTA in the market place.
