Science of Sound

first_imgThat’s why Guerrero has offered up her school to host Bose In Harmony with Education, which is designed for students to see, hear and feel the power and beauty of music while teaching them the science behind the sounds. Morrison students were the first to experience the 90-minute program last week, but fourth- and fifth-grade students from other schools in the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District are being bused to Morrison through the end of this month to go through the program. “It’s fascinating because children understand music, but they don’t frequently understand the science behind it,” Guerrero said. “But then they go through this program and they think, `Oh, this is what sound looks like, or this is what it feels like’ – it’s just a box with holes and strings,” she said. The program is split up into two 45-minute sessions. One session teaches students how sound is created, then features “Musically Speaking,” a slide show on a movie theater-like screen in a classroom equipped with a Bose home-theater system. • Video: Science of SoundNORWALK – Morrison Elementary School Principal Marsha Guerrero says she has one basic belief when it comes to exposing her young students to music. It’s absolutely essential. And, Guerrero says, music should be studied in two specific ways: integrated with other subjects, and taught on its own. The other session includes lessons on sound waves and allows students to play homemade versions of four specific instruments: a maraca, drum, erhu (a Chinese fiddle) and mbira (a thumb piano). The instruments the students played were made of PVC pipe, plastic, string and popsicle sticks. “That was a lot of fun,” said Stephani Mccalman, 10, a fifth-grader from Nuffer Elementary School in Norwalk who played the maracas. “Even though I already knew how to play the maracas, I liked that we actually got to touch and use the instruments,” she added. “That was cool.” The program is conducted by two Bose docents – one of whom is a Norwalk High School graduate – and people on Morrison’s staff. The Nuffer Elementary students who went through the Bose program last week gave it good reviews. They enjoyed the fireworks and lightning featured in the slide show, as well as playing the instruments. Even fifth-grade teacher Jennifer Saenz got her turn at playing a mbira – a real one, not the homemade kind. “This was a great hands-on lesson,” she said. “But what was really good is that it got their attention. “They were very into it, and very focused, and that’s exactly what you want to get out of them during their lessons,” Saenz said. “That was really neat.” For more information on the Bose program, visit www.bose.com/inharmony. tracy.garcia@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3051160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Cognizant in Dispute with India’s Income Tax Dept Over Rs 2,500 Crore Tax

first_imgNew Jersey-based technology company Cognizant’s Indian arm has run into trouble with the income tax department in India over Dividend Distribution Tax on shares it bought back from its foreign owners — Cognizant Mauritius and the U.S.-based parent Cognizant Technology Solutions (CTS) — in 2016.The income tax department froze some accounts of Cognizant to recover Rs 2,500 crore last week. In May 2016, Cognizant purchased its own shares from the two subsidiaries under the scheme of arrangement and compromise between them and the company.Cognizant Technology Solutions India P Ltd (CTS) took the matter to the Madras High Court on March 28, which told the income tax department to not take any further action and file an affidavit defending its move by April 2.“As per the Income Tax Act, DDT needs to be paid on any distribution, reduction of capital, to the extent of accumulated profits defined as dividends. The only exception to this is the buy-back under section 77A of the Companies Act and CTS was not covered. Therefore, CTS was required to pay DDT to the extent of Rs 2,500 crore in the financial year 2016-17 itself, but has not paid so far,” said a senior tax official, according to the Times of India.“The shareholders are a Mauritius entity and an American company, holding 54 per cent and 46 per cent of shares, respectively. Cognizant did not deduct tax on the remittances to the Mauritius company, but deducted 10 per cent as tax on the remittances to the U.S. company,” said the official.The I-T department will be prosecuting Cognizant for failure to pay the 20 per cent DDT on buyback of its shares, the Economic Times reported, citing a senior official at the department as saying that the prosecution will not go against the high court order since the order is specific to the attachment order, which pertains to the freezing of the accounts.Cognizant’s chief financial officer Karen McLoughlin said that payroll, promotions and wage revisions will not be affected by the dispute.“I want to reassure you that these developments will have NO bearing on our ability to continue to support, reward or recognize our associates across the world. Cognizant’s balance sheet is robust with over $5 billion in cash and short-term investments, and our business continues to remain healthy. As such, your payroll and the promotion cycles and wage revisions announced by Jim Lennox last week will NOT be in any way impacted because of these developments. Please continue to focus on the good work you are doing for our clients, enabling them to drive digital transformation at scale,” she said in an email to employees.The I-T department’s move to freeze its accounts, Cognizant said, is “contrary to law and without merit,” the Press Trust of India reported.
