To Help Washington, D.C., Thrive, Focus on the Communities
WHY YOU SHOULD CARE

OZY and JPMorgan Chase have partnered to take a deeper look at how businesses can impact society for the better. Enjoy the rest of our special series here.
Jackie Chan, a kung fu star and a member of the CPPCC National Committee, raised his experiences about smoking bans in China and Singapore as an example. During a business trip, his colleagues still smoked after a warning from a security guard in Zhuhai, Guangdong province, but they didn't dare smoke when they arrived in Singapore because "it was strict about smoking there".
It took almost 45 years for this 13-hour shaggy-dog experiment to reach American screens, but the timing turned out to be perfect. Mr. Rivette’s mischievous ramble through Paris, French literature and a handful of perennial philosophical puzzles (What is the nature of reality? How do we know what we know? What is the relation of effect to cause?) is both a charming, newly rediscovered artifact of its hectic time and a bulletin from the cinematic future. Everything has already been done, and everything is still possible.
With economic development plans in the works, the area is already seeing some signs of positive change. For example, plans for an elevated bridge park are underway — with a focus on recreation, the environment and the arts. Alongside several residential revitalization projects, highly desired services such as retail shops and restaurants are cropping up too — from Martin Luther King Jr. Ave.’s new Busboys & Poets, to a Walgreens, to a new Chase branch.
In fact, Chase’s new branch in Anacostia — which opened its doors in December 2018 — is one of the first of 70 new Chase branches planned to open in Greater Washington, from Baltimore to Northern Virginia. Diminishing access to financial services is an issue that disproportionately affects low-income working families and minorities. And given that 20 percent of Chase’s new branches in the region will be in low- and moderate-income communities, the company is hoping to help minimize this disparity.
Despite the confusion, executive producer Ed Razek has commended the Chinese partners as “wonderful and enthusiastic hosts.”
“How you leave a position can make a lasting impression,” notes OfficeTeam executive director Robert Hosking. That’s for sure. Most (86%) of the HR managers in the survey said that how someone quits a job “affects their future career opportunities.” Word gets around.
China's pension insurance balance of urban employees and urban and rural residents added up to four trillion, according to the Annual Report on Social Security Development 2015.
In addition to expanding its footprint in the area with new branches, JPMorgan Chase also announced that the company is increasing wages for branch employees to no less than $18 per hour. With a plan to hire 700 people across the region, each branch is being designed to reflect and meet the unique needs of its respective community. In fact, when designing the new branches, the company teamed up with a local nonprofit, Arts on the Block, to create intricate community-inspired mosaics by middle and high school youth.
As 业内人士称新国标难度大 或致半数卫浴企业被淘汰, more and more newcomers are heading east of the river — and with them comes the risk of gentrification and higher costs of living, as well as an increase in the number of highly-skilled jobs. But JPMorgan Chase is looking to drive responsible, inclusive growth in the area. Through its $25 million philanthropic commitment, the company hopes to promote job growth, support minority-owned small businesses, encourage neighborhood revitalization and improve financial health.

This story pulls directly from the real Bling Ring gang , whose burglaries racked up $3 million over the span of ten months in 2008. All of the celebrities listed in the movie were real victims of this group, who claim to have been motivated by the "cultural obsession" surrounding celebrities' personal lives. Whatever their motives, the Bling Ring is a good reminder to take a step back from the media every once in a while.

从一开始，社交网络就被有效地隔离在互联网之外。比如，Facebook的海量内容通常不会显示在谷歌( Google )搜索结果之中。但是否非得是这种情形？比方说，Twitter搜索结果自动出现在一个标准的谷歌搜索显示页面，岂不是更方便？再比如，当你搜索Yelp时，为什么关于某家餐厅的最新Twitter消息没有显现出来呢？由于利益相悖，不同社交网络往往把各自的内容封锁在专利保护墙之内，但也有不少工具致力于创造性地弥合这道鸿沟。需要说明的是，本文作者的公司已经开发出了这样一种工具。
“That’s the first time we’ve seen that,” said Thomas Karl, director of the US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s national centres for environmental information.
