The annual Relay for Life event will celebrate all cancer survivors, honor those who have lost their battles and fight back against this disease by raising money for cancer research and patient support programs. There will be live entertainment, delicious food, lawn games, empowering speakers and a luminaria ceremony. To sign up your team and start fundraising now please visit our website here. Guests are also welcome to register the day of the event, with a suggested $10 donation to the American Cancer Society. If you are a cancer survivor please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as we would love to celebrate all survivors with a special, catered dinner at our event.
This post is being submitted on behalf the students planning this year’s Relay for Life. Contact email@example.com with any questions.
Guntram Herb (Geography) has been accepted to the Digital Native American and Indigenous Studies workshop that will take place in May at Indiana University-Purdue University in Indianapolis. This award covers all expenses of the workshop, including travel. The workshop will be instrumental for the development of new digital teaching modules on indigenous borderlands.
Noah Graham (Physics), a 2005 recipient of the Cottrell College Science Award, has been named a Cottrell Scholar by the Research Corporation, a private foundation that aids basic research in the physical sciences. This program is highly selective–only 5% of Cottrell College Science Award recipients since 1994 have been invited to join this stellar group. This honor places Noah in a national community of outstanding scholar-educators who produce significant research and educational outcomes and makes him eligible for unique grant opportunities. Congratulations Noah!
Frank Winkler (Emeritus Professor, Physics) has been awarded funding from the NASA-funded Space Telescope Science Institute (STScI) for his role in a collaborative research project titled What Makes Radio-detected and Optically-detected Supernova Remnants in NGC6946 Different? The project, carried out in collaboration with colleagues from STScI, Johns Hopkins University, and Hofstra University, will use new observations from the Hubble Space Telescope, in conjunction with existing data from Hubble, from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory, from optical telescopes at Kitt Peak in Arizona and Mauna Kea in Hawaii, and from the Jansky Very Large Array radio telescope in New Mexico. The study will focus on understanding the remnants of exploded stars in the “Fireworks Galaxy,” so named because it has produced more supernovae (9) in the past century than any other known galaxy. The researchers hope that their work will shed new light on the cycle through which stars are born, live, die spectacularly as supernovae, and disperse matter that will eventually become the raw material for new stars.
As you prepare to file your 2016 income taxes, you may be asked about a form called Form 1095-C. The Affordable Care Act requires employers to furnish Form 1095-C to current and past employees who were covered in the employer sponsored medical plan for all or any portion of the tax year. In November of 2016, the IRS extended this year’s deadline for employers to furnish to employees the Form 1095-C from January 31st to March 2, 2017.
Please be aware that the extension to employers should not impact or delay a tax filer’s ability to file their income taxes as usual. Individual income tax-filers are not required to submit Form 1095-C when they file their taxes this year. When the form does arrive (around March 2nd), be sure to keep the form with your personal tax records as documentation.
You may need to know the answers to a few basic questions when preparing your return:
- Does Middlebury’s plan meet the minimum essential coverage criteria as mandated by the Affordable Care Act? Yes it does.
- Were you covered for all 12 months of the year? Each employee should know the answer to this.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to the Benefits Department in Human Resources at 802-443-3372.
