The Apopka Voice Townhall Seat #1 tonight; Seat #2 Thursday night

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here  But unlike most debates or townhalls, this event will attempt to re-create the experience of being on the Apopka City Council. The agenda items (topics) and specifics (questions) will be sent to the eight candidates a week in advance so that they can prepare to answer questions delivered to them. This style of Townhall is intended to better simulate the experience of being an Apopka City Commissioner. There will also be longer answers, allowing candidates to reply to questions in a more conversational style, similar to how the City Council operates during a discussion. Three specific topics will be discussed with only a few questions per topic. The discussion will stay on that topic until a comprehensive understanding of the four candidate’s viewpoints/opinions/thoughts is known. The purpose of this format is not to measure how quickly a candidate thinks on their feet, but rather to measure their approach to solving critical issues for Apopka, and to fully understand their opinions and ideologies on the subject.In the last 30 minutes, a more traditional townhall style debate will close the event with the candidates answering questions posed by the audience. Seating is limited to first-come-first-served.

Address not applicable: What happens to the HQ in the remote-work age?

first_img Email Address* Coinbase CEO Brian Armstrong (Getty/Illustration by Kevin Rebong)When a company prepares to go public, it submits to the SEC a document known as the S1, which details its business, financials, risks and opportunities. On the first page is a field for the location of its headquarters. Some of these addresses have become legendary: 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway (Google); 1601 Willow Road (Facebook); 345 Park Avenue (Blackstone).Last week, Coinbase, the biggest U.S. cryptocurrency exchange, filed its S1. In that noteworthy field, the company wrote “Address not Applicable.”“In May 2020, we became a remote-first company,” Coinbase wrote in a footnote. “Accordingly, we do not maintain a headquarters.”One could dismiss the move as a marketing stunt. But even so, it’s telling. One sign of a company’s status has historically been an address — Park Avenue, West 57th Street, Wall Street — that signified that a company was going places. Here, however, a company that traffics in digital assets is betting that being HQ-free is good branding. Listing no address, Coinbase thinks, is a power move.ADVERTISEMENTThe debate about permanent remote work is bound to be long, ugly and ultimately unsatisfying. Each week, we hear more about the benefits of remote work; Robert J. Gordon, author of the seminal “The Rise and Fall of American Growth,” told UCLA that remote work “has got to improve productivity because we’re getting the same amount of output without commuting, without office buildings.” But we also hear about the downsides, such as Zoom fatigue, loneliness, lack of connection, zero separation between work and life.Those arguments will go on, and they will evolve. But it is clear that there are no neat lines to be drawn. It’s not as if all the tech companies are rah-rah on remote work and all the suited-and-booted financial firms are begging for a return to the office.Salesforce declared last month that it would let employees work remotely indefinitely, while Google still maintains that employees will need to start coming in after the virus is dealt with. In banking, an interesting contrast popped up last week, with HSBC saying that 85 percent of its workers would be eligible for long-term remote work and that the bank would reduce its footprint by 40 percent, while Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon described remote work as “an aberration” and promised to “correct it as quickly as possible.”But even with the jury out on remote work, it’s worth questioning the viability of a central business district headquarters — the giant, show-stopping office in Grand Central, Hudson Yards, South of Market or Avenue of the Stars. While many companies remain committed to the HQ, and some, like Blackstone, are even doubling down on the concept, many companies might opt for a network of smaller offices closer to where their talent pool wants to live.Purely residential neighborhoods in alpha cities, if zoning officials see reason, might see offices bloom, and smaller cities — no, not everyone is moving to Miami — will also benefit as knowledge workers exercise their ability to live where they wish. Real estate markets will adjust; tenants’ demand for greater flexibility has already shortened lease terms, JLL data show. And one fascinating trend within commercial brokerage hints at bigger changes ahead.CBRE, the world’s largest commercial real estate services firm, paid $200 million last month for a 35 percent stake in co-working startup Industrious, following in the footsteps of a key rival, Newmark, which gobbled up the bankrupt Knotel.The brokerages, whose bread-and-butter has long been securing dedicated office space for large tenants, have the pulse of the office market, and their bets say a lot about where they see things going. Companies such as Quora are already experimenting with keeping an office but reducing its prestige: CEO Adam D’Angelo pledged to be in the office no more than once a month, to ensure that it no longer serves as the company’s power base.So maybe we should stop asking if the office is dead. A workspace distinct from where you live will remain essential, at least for quite a while. The better question might be: “Will ‘address not applicable’ become a movement?” If it does, commercial landlords will have to adapt.Contact the author Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Message* Full Name*center_img Share via Shortlink Tags Central Business DistrictNews AnalysisRemote Worklast_img read more

Evaluating highly branched isoprenoid (HBI) biomarkers as a novel Antarctic sea-ice proxy in deep ocean glacial age sediments

first_imgAntarctic sea-ice plays a primary role in the climate system, potentially modulating interhemispheric millennial-scale climate change and deglacial warming. Recently, microfossil proxy data have provided important insights into this potential forcing. However, additional proxies for glacial sea-ice reconstructions are required, to support the microfossil data and to control for potential preservation issues. We considered highly branched isoprenoids (HBIs) as a sea-ice proxy, building on earlier studies in the Arctic and Antarctic. This study focused on measuring HBIs in glacial deposits in Southern Ocean deep ocean sediment cores. These deep ocean sites provided a study location away from the local sea-ice complexities associated with coastal and shallow water sites and allowed the comparison of HBIs during several phases of glacial sea-ice variability inferred from microfossils. Down-core profiles of di- and tri-unsaturated HBI isomers diene II and triene III were compared with diatom-based reconstructions of Antarctic sea-ice derived in three high resolution sediment cores recovered from a transect across the Scotia Sea, Southwest Atlantic. High quality chronological control was achieved through a combination of abundance stratigraphy, relative geomagnetic palaeointensity data, and down-core magnetic susceptibility/ice core dust correlation. Significant positive correlations, observed between HBI diene II and sea-ice presence, and between HBI triene III and open waters in the Marginal Ice Zone indicated that the two HBIs are both closely related to sea-ice and sea-ice edge dynamics, respectively. Highly significant down-core correlations between the HBIs indicate coeval sedimentation related to the summer breakdown of sea-ice melt-induced stratification. Combined, the two HBIs and diatoms demonstrated their potential as proxies for permanent sea-ice cover and sea-ice seasonality, two parameters poorly resolved in current climate models. The sea-ice reconstructions presented have developed our knowledge regarding HBIs and their relationship with the surface ocean environment and further highlight their potential as an important proxy for glacial Antarctic sea-ice and sea-ice dynamics back to at least ∼60 ka.last_img read more
