Office Depot extends board nomination deadline

BY Katherine Boccaccio

Boca Raton, Fla. — Office Depot said Thursday it has extended its deadline for board nominations; the move comes after discussions with its largest shareholder Starboard Value were held.

The extension allows stockholders to nominate candidates until the close of business on Feb. 25.

Activist hedge fund Starboard has been pushing for changes at Office Depot, arguing that the company could improve profitability in part by reducing expense.

Looking for a deal on the T-Mobile version of the Google Nexus 4? The stock Android device can be yours for just $79.99 from Costco, with a signed two-year contract. There is a condition to the deal, though. You have to be a brand new T-Mobile customer to get that price. And if you buy the phone and sign up for unlimited 4G data using T-Mobile's Classic plan, you will receive a $30 credit on your T-Mobile bill. hcg drops If you already are a T-Mobile customer merely upgrading an existing account, the Google Nexus 4 will cost you $99.99.

So, the new devices are big. We know that they are very, very big... but exactly how big are they? We can never have a good understanding until we can see them side to side with some of the popular smartphones out there, so that's exactly what we're going to do right now. Below you can see the new Mega 6.3 and Mega 5.8 phones right next to the Note II, Galaxy S4, One, iPhone 5, Xperia Z and Lumia 920. Urban Vista And we have to tell you, folks, the moment we saw this comparison, that's when we realized how MASSIVE these guys are. Anyways, don't let us keep admiring their sheer size - tell us what you think about the Mega brothers! Has Samsung finally crossed the line? Could the Megas use some more screen?

You if plans to dehydrate food are to only do a small batch every so often then you may need to downsize a bit and go with a 500 watt 8-12 tray capacity. If you have a 100 watt light bulb that is bright right? However how bright would a 100 watt bulb be in a 2000 sq foot area? It'd still be bright but wouldn't fill the whole area. our site Churches with a theological belief system based on end times survival or feeding impoverished world populations have listened very carefully to this research.

10. For video playback, though, it fares slightly better than its immediate competitors with 10 hours and 16 minutes of longevity. Overall, this makes for an “endurance rating” of 63 hours, a combined measure of its performance that shows how much the device should last in real life. This means you’d be able to squeeze out almost three full days if you do one hour of calling, web browsing and video watching every day. grow taller 4 idiots ebook

Study: Munich and Berlin top European commercial real estate investment prospects

BY Marianne Wilson

London — Three cities in Germany are ranked the top five European markets for commercial real estate investment, according to a report by the Urban Land Institute (ULI) and PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC).

Munich took the top spot in the report, “Emerging Trends in Real Estate Europe 2013,” followed by Berlin, London, Istanbul and Hamburg. The ranking of 27 cities across Europe was based on respondents’ expectations for market performance in 2013.

Overall, the highest ranked cities were the larger Western European centers with international appeal and better economic prospects. The worst performing cities were those in countries at the heart of the Eurozone crisis or struggling to cope with the consequences of the 2008 financial meltdown, including Athens, Lisbon, Dublin, Madrid and Barcelona. Budapest came in last in the rankings.

“Almost five years since the start of the financial crisis, real estate investors remain cautious about capital deployment and the availability of debt” said Joe Montgomery, chief executive of ULI Europe. “As a result investors are focusing on the harder to find opportunities in blue-chip cities such as Munich, Berlin, London and Paris, rather than turning to secondary locations in search of higher returns.”

The study noted that Munich’s No. 1 ranking was based on a multiple factors, including its strong and liquid market, expanding demographics and low vacancy rates and constrained supply.

Berlin, which is dubbed by many as Europe’s “Silicon Allee,” was called out for its growing reputation as a technology hub and reputation as a cultural center.

The report called London “one of the world’s ultimate safe havens,” and that it is seen as sitting apart from the problems in the wider United Kingdom and European economies. The city’s size, strength and liquidity of its real estate market are attractive to many investors. Istanbul was cited for its future development opportunity.

“The city’s exciting real estate potential is driven by economic growth which rivals China and demographics where the average age in Turkey is only 29,” the report noted. “Recent changes have eased restrictions on foreign ownership of Turkish real estate, as the government seeks to attract international capital and transform Istanbul into a regional financial centre.”

Investor interest in Hamburg, Germany’s second largest city, is driven by its safe-haven status. The city benefits from a diverse mix of global occupiers and domestic small and medium sized businesses, according to the report.
