Just a little while ago my heart rate was 55 BPM, now its 81 BPM. Well, that phone call didn’t go that well.  Yesterday I only had 1,000 steps recorded. Why are you sitting around in the office? Then the watch was telling me it was time to stand. The day before I had 7,000 steps. Now that was a good day, I showed a lot of space. While I was out I passed by a building I was not sure about, I checked CoStar on the watch and got the information. I contacted the owner and was able to make an appointment. Since I was driving I voice commanded it into my calendar. I almost forgot about it, but my watch reminded me since I had set up an alert.

I was in a meeting but was waiting for an important e-mail. I did not want to be pulling out my phone and checking it, but I was able to clandestinely scroll on my watch. When it came, I excused myself and went into the hallway to respond. I had to make a call shortly after that, so I set a silent alarm to remind me, then I excused myself again later to make the call.

I was getting ready to leave for an appointment but wasn’t sure how much fuel I had. I called up my Volvo app on the watch and saw I only had a quarter tank. Not enough, so I allocated some extra time to fill up.

I had to take a train into the city, so I wanted to make sure there were no subway delays, I have an app for that. On the way I pulled out my Bluetooth Bose headphones and played some music off my watch playlists.

The next day I went for a mountain bike ride. I opened the Strava App on my watch, so I could check up on myself while I was riding. While on a decent I got a phone call from an important client and was able to answer the call and resolve an issue without crashing into a tree; although, I think the client was wondering about my heavy breathing. My heart rate was up again, but this time is was a good thing.

Oh, and I can also tell what time it is!

An update regarding CIBS’ new EDAC initiative.

CIBS board member John Magnani and CIBS Secretary Michael Rosenfeld attended a session of the Nassau County Legislature where a vote was taken on an amendment to the lease for the Nassau Hub site to allow RXR to join BSE as master developers.

During the open public comments period Magnani read the following statement to the legislature:

“I am a proud resident of the Town of Hempstead. I am the head of the Commercial Division of Daniel Gale Sotheby's International Realty and member of the Commercial Industrial Brokers Society, the largest commercial brokers organization on Long Island.
We are in constant contact with all of Long Islands major employers and we hear their concerns, difficulties and desires. The most underlying and common topics are access to younger demographic employees, diversified housing stock and both Transit and Employment Oriented Districts offering more Live-Work-Play communities. From an economic standpoint, the multiplier effect of a $1.5 billion development means years of good paying architectural, engineering and legal jobs, additional years of good paying construction jobs and subsequent permanent jobs. This development will increase local tax base revenues without shifting the burden of property tax shortfalls to the residents. CIBS therefor endorses this project and would ask the Town Board to consider all that we have said before rendering any land use decisions.
Thank you.”
