The Growth Of Manhattan’s Rental Offices is Not Going Unnoticed

 

Why are coworking spaces so important to the future of the workplace? Independent and freelance workers are growing in numbers in today’s workplace, and as this continues there just won’t be as much need for cubicles and supervisors running around reminding their workers about deadlines. But there will always be a need for a social environment where independent business owners can meet new clients or expand their customer base. They might even run their own business but work for a peer as well, and that’s a common thing at coworking spaces. Working from home will always be an option, but coworking spaces provide things you may not have at home.

 

Some work from home jobs require private phone lines and office equipment that can be expensive to purchase. At coworking spaces you can get access to this equipment as part of your monthly rent there, and you don’t have to worry about installing it yourself. Working from home can also lead to loneliness, but at coworking spaces you’ll have people around to bounce ideas off of, or motivate you to keep getting your work done. You’ll also have access to much faster internet, and if the power goes out the building probably has a generator that will turn on allowing you to keep doing your work. And you can still take vacation or sick days whenever you need to. Coworking spaces are starting up everywhere, but New York offices for rent are increasing in number at coworking spaces in downtown NYC.

 

Workville is one such coworking space where you can find luxurious New York offices for rent along with many amenities and features. You can get to Workville from many transportation hubs in Manhattan, and you won’t have to walk far to get to local shops and retail outlets. Workville’s New York offices for rent are furnished and allow you to work in private, and you can even get a dedicated desk for an extra fee. If you don’t need a private office, you can rent lounge spaces. Workville also has coffee makers, printers and copiers, mail service, conference rooms, and terraces offering a great view of the city.

George Soros uses his money to battle Trump

George Soros seems more politically engaged than he’s been since the time of the Bush Administration, according to a recent report in Politico. That could be because the stakes of this year’s election are strikingly high. The democratic nominee, Hillary Clinton is facing off against a decidedly illiberal Donald Trump as the Republican nominee. Trump has a warm relationship with Russian Strongman Vladimir Putin, he wants to build a wall along the U.S.’s southern border with Mexico, ban Muslims from entering the country, and strike down the First Amendment. The latest news is that he didn’t pay income taxes for 18 years.

Soros might not be a young man anymore, but the 85-year-old billionaire is using his money to help defeat the dangerous Trump. Indeed, Soros has claimed that Trump is, “doing the work of ISIS,” by stoking fear in the American electorate on politico.com.

The Hungarian-born Soros is based in New York, where he made his fortune in high-risk currency trading on Bloomberg. He uses his wealth to bankroll causes he cares about, including religious tolerance, criminal justice issues, and immigration reform. All issues of which Trump is hostile.

Soros, consequently, has pledged more than $25 million to Hillary Clinton, along with other Democratic candidates, to make sure the Republicans cannot achieve their goals, according to interviews Politico has done with Democratic operatives and those close to George Soros. The billionaire has already donated $7 million to one Clinton super PAC, and democratic officials say he’s deciding whether to give another $3 million. He’s also given a cool $5 million to a liberal super PAC that helps get out the Latino vote in swing states, which overwhelmingly favors Clinton.

Soros is also fighting voting restrictions by donating $5 million to a group that seeks to defeat restrictive voting on twitter.com, a conservative cause of recent years. Not to be outdone, he’s so far donated $1.5 million this year to Planned Parenthood Votes, a super PAC that advocates for abortion rights.

Soros’ relationship with the Clintons stretches back at least 25 years to the first Clinton Administration. Soros had planned to attend last summer’s Democratic National Convention, but was hamstrung by volatility in European financial markets. The philanthropist, worth a reported $24.9 billion, felt he needed to keep a watchful eye on his investments.

The Democratic Party’s leadership see Soros’ injection of money as a harbinger of good things to come. They think Soros can jump start the giving of other wealthy liberal philanthropists.

Soros, however, doesn’t only spend his largess on American political causes. He’s donated around $13 billion over the last thirty years to groups and foundations that seek to defend human rights, democratize Eastern Europe, and expand educational and healthcare opportunities for people in developing countries.
