In the virtuous race over bragging rights for the title of greenest building, there are various shades of LEED, there's net-zero energy, and there's Energy Star, too. But how many facilities can sink a pipe into a parking lot, tap into more than enough energy to supply year-round heating needs, and just maybe have enough left over to generate much of the site's electricity?

The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
As if high fuel prices and rising hotel rates were not enough to splash cold water on travel plans, consider the variety of taxes and fees that cities are levying on visitors. In the last two years, cities including Boston, Baltimore and San Jose, Calif., have passed tax increases on hotel rooms, restaurant meals or parking garage rates. More

How are you dealing with workplace conflict?
All Things Workplace    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
One should not confuse the distinction between the presence and absence of conflict with the difference between competition and co-operation. In competitive situations, the two or more parties each have mutually inconsistent goals, so that when either party tries to reach their goal it will undermine the attempts of the other to reach theirs. Therefore, competitive situations will by their nature cause conflict. More

Dos and don'ts for resume writing
The Resume    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Do you have any unreasonable expectations of what a resume can do? If so, you will be guilty of a grave error in judgment if you expect someone to hire you because of your resume. Your resume is simply a piece of paper. It comes with no guarantee of truthfulness, and it certainly can't close a deal. You may choose to believe that your record speaks for itself, but the truth is: Only you speak for yourself. More

New Las Vegas restaurants give you the world
Hartford Courant    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Remember when it seemed preposterous that a French three-star chef would sign on for a restaurant in Las Vegas? And it turned out that not one but four highly decorated French chefs eventually launched Vegas outposts? Even in these rocky economic times, Vegas is sprouting new restaurants. As long as visitors keep rolling their bags up to hotel reception desks, Vegas keeps building. Latest entry? The Cosmopolitan, and in its wake a starry collection of restaurants from well-known chefs and restaurateurs. Yet the Cosmo's collection of restaurants seems more about dazzling diners with good food than jaw-dropping design and opulent details. More

April gaming revenues in Washoe County nearly matched year-earlier totals, the state reported recently, as the region struggled to emerge from a winter-long slump. The Nevada Gaming Control Board's report showed April's win, or gross revenues, in the Reno-Sparks-North Tahoe area slipped 0.6 percent from April 2010.
