LAS VEGAS — Mark Davis sat alone on a metal bench at the 35-yard line inside Allegiant Stadium, a little more than an hour before the Las Vegas Raiders took the field Friday.

His thoughts during those moments of quiet reflection remained unknown. His thoughts on what the team can accomplish in their new home were made clear once the players were gathered around.

“Welcome to the Death Star, where our opponents’ dreams come to die,” Davis said as addressed the players from the base of the torch while being broadcast on three enormous video boards. “My father always said that the greatness of the Raiders is in its future. Well, today that future really starts.

New Longaberger owner seeks to transform brand online – Business – The Columbus Dispatch

Longaberger’s new owner is redefining the Ohio basket maker by emphasizing online sales and expanding its product offerings. The next-generation Longaberger website includes an array of kitchen and home decor, furniture, jewelry and bath products.

Longaberger’s new owner has launched a plan to reinvent the old-school Ohio basket maker into a social-media powerhouse.

“This company at one time was a billion-dollar company,” said Robert D’Loren, CEO of Xcel Brands, which acquired Longaberger in November. “Our goal is to make it a billion-dollar company again.”

Xcel, which also owns Halston, Isaac Mizrahi and Judith Ripka, envisions Longaberger as the anchor of “the world’s largest and most engaged social-commerce community.”

The digital strategy requires a big shift in products, culture and business model for the former Dresden-based basket company that at its peak employed 8,000 workers before shutting down in 2018.

Cowboys can now joke about Tyrone Crawford’s 2019 bar brawl

Leave it to Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to seemingly unwittingly spice up an interview session.

Asked on his radio show on 105.3 The Fan about players who are standing out in camp to him, Jones pointed out defensive end Aldon Smith, who has surprised everyone with his stellar play in his first action in five years due to an NFL suspension, as well as Pro Bowl defensive ends DeMarcus Lawrence and Everson Griffen, a recent free agent addition who actually practiced for the first time on Sunday.

Then Jones interjected defensive lineman Tyrone Crawford, who is returning from surgery on both hips, as only as he can.

“The guy that I note is 98, Crawford,” Jones said. “And Crawford is, we know what he is in his heart. You saw him down in Florida. He’s a bad boy. He’s who you want on your side now. And, boy, he

Allegiant Stadium, the $1.84 billion facility that is the final result of the former Oakland/Los Angeles/Oakland Raiders’ move to Las Vegas, opened Friday for the team’s first practice there, and Davis was overjoyed.

Of course, that’s no excuse for getting one’s Star Wars history wrong.

“Greetings,” Davis said to his players on Friday. “Welcome to the Death Star, where our opponent’s dreams come to die. My father always said that the greatness of the Raiders is in its future.

IRA Custodian Not Telling IRA Owner About The 60-Day Rollover Rule Is Not A Valid Excuse For Missing The Deadline

Taxpayers often “borrow” funds from their retirement accounts to fill short-term financial needs, and roll over the amounts within 60 days of receipt. But, as a taxpayer found out in PLR 202033008, IRAs are not designed for loans, and taking one can result in unintended distributions that cannot be repaid to the IRA.

Taking a distribution from an IRA with the intent of returning (rolling over) the amount so that it is non-taxable is a risky business. Risky because missing the 60-day rollover deadline could result in the amount being included in income, which is the contrary effect of a rollover. The IRS will waive the 60-day deadline under certain qualifying circumstances, such as if the deadline is missed because of an error made by a financial institution. But, as one taxpayer
