Dunder Mifflin Alert Nielsen to Disable Employees Reply to All Email Functionality

first_imgThere have been plenty of cutbacks across the magazine publishing industry, but, at least to this point, the various e-mail functions within Outlook have been spared. That is, until now. The following memo, distributed to Nielsen employees today, sounds like it was taken straight from a script for NBC’s The Office.Unfortunately, I’m told, it’s all-too-real. “REPLY TO ALL” FUNCTION TO BE DISABLEDA Message from Andrew CawoodIn December, the Nielsen Executive Council (NEC) held an Act Now! event to review suggestions from across the business that would eliminate bureaucracy and inefficiency. Beginning Thursday, January 29, we will implement one of the approved recommendations: removing the “Reply to All” functionality from Microsoft Outlook.We have noticed that the “Reply to All” functionality results in unnecessary inbox clutter. Beginning Thursday we will eliminate this function, allowing you to reply only to the sender. Responders who want to copy all can do so by selecting the names or using a distribution list.Eliminating the “Reply to All” function will:• Require us to copy only those who need to be involved in an e-mail conversation• Reduce non-essential messages in mailboxes, freeing up our time as well as server spaceThis is one of the many changes being implemented as a result of the NEC Act Now! initiative. If you have any suggestions on how we can continue to improve the way we work, please send your comments to Nielsen Communications [mailto: REDACTED].Andrew CawoodChief Information OfficerFrightening.last_img read more

Solar Power Puts Dugway Proving Ground on Path to Net Zero

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR As Army officials prepare to celebrate the opening next week of a 2-megawatt solar array at Dugway Proving Ground, the installation confirmed plans for the construction of a 3-megawatt array about 20 miles away.When the second array is completed, the two will provide 25 percent of the electrical needs of the test center, administrative buildings and homes at Dugway, located in the West Desert of Utah. That output would meet DOD’s goal of obtaining 25 percent of its electricity from renewable sources and advance the proving ground’s efforts to become a net zero installation, reported Army Public Affairs.“Not only are we on track to meet the Army’s goal, but we are acting as good neighbors with the state of Utah,” said Don Smith, Dugway’s garrison manager. “We will be able to shave of a portion of Rocky Mountain Power’s output during its peak hours, which will benefit everyone.”The first array, which began operations in February, is made up of more than 7,000 solar panels on 10 acres of land. It cost $7.7 million to build.To support its effort to adopt renewables, the proving ground is building a microgrid, which will allow it to operate on stored energy when the commercial grid is down.“With the aging infrastructure of the commercial power grid it became critical that we find an alternate method to ensure an uninterrupted power source,” Smith said.last_img read more

It Chapter 2 early reviews Probably scarier than part 1

first_img‘Truly epic feel'”Director Andy Muschietti weaves the young & adult Losers together super well, giving IT 2 a truly epic feel,” writes Perri Nemiroff of Collider. #ITChapterTwo is probably scarier than chapter one – more Pennywise imagery to haunt your dreams. But it also loses a lot of charm in the shift in focus from the coming of age to the now adult characters. At nearly 3 hours it feels long.— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) August 21, 2019 For the most part I liked IT CHAPTER TWO. First half (of this pretty long movie!) is great. And the new adult cast is stellar. Second half isn’t as tight. And overall Chapter Two isn’t as tight as the first movie.— Mike Ryan (@mikeryan) August 21, 2019 0 IT Chapter 2: Everything to know He’s coming. New Line Cinema Stephen King has a lot to answer for. He’s ruined the reputation of vintage cars (Christine), Saint Bernard dogs (Cujo) and snowy hideaways (The Shining). But he’s really destroyed the good name of clowns, as Pennywise from It might be one of the most nightmarish horror creations ever.It Chapter 2 follows up on 2017’s critically acclaimed It, and both are based on King’s 1,100-page, 1986 best seller. It Chapter 2 recasts the Losers’ Club with adult actors, and continues the plot 27 years after the first film. The film opens Sept. 5 in Australia and Sept. 6 in the US and UK, but social media reactions started to creep out on Tuesday. Here’s a look at what some early viewers are saying.’Probably scarier,’ but longPeter Sciretta of Slashfilm is calling this second film “probably scarier than chapter one — more Pennywise imagery to haunt your dreams.” But he also found it less charming than the first, and overlong. TV and Movies Post a comment #ItChapterTwo is a giant budget, studio-backed horror movie that’s also a fairly serious actors showcase/ensemble, with occasional flashes of brilliant imagery (like all the balloons cascading under the bridge). It’ll make more money than Warner Bros knows what to do with. pic.twitter.com/Noscq1X1j1— Drew Taylor (@DrewTailored) August 21, 2019 10 Photos ‘First half is great’Mike Ryan of Uproxx had a definite preference for the first part of the film, and loved the new adult cast. Share your voice #ITChapter2 isn’t as refined as the first, but it’s still an excellent ensemble piece, oozing with heart & packed with extremely well-crafted set pieces. Muschietti weaves the young & adult Losers together super well, giving IT 2 a truly epic feel. (MVP: Bill Hader as Richie.) pic.twitter.com/7dXmIsd2z6— Perri Nemiroff (@PNemiroff) August 21, 2019 2:20 So, #ITChapterTwo: it’s v. good, but not great. I liked it, but didn’t LOVE it. First movie is a tough act to follow. TWO is gruesome, strange but rarely scary. Nails important aspects from the book, but feels overlong. Cast is aces, though, & Bill Hader SHOULD be in Oscar convo. pic.twitter.com/1KUZk5TXA1— Sean O’Connell (@Sean_OConnell) August 21, 2019 Cha-ching!”It’ll make more money than Warner Bros knows what to do with,” writes Drew Taylor of Moviefone. Oh, we think they’ll find a way to use the cash. ‘Bill Hader steals it’Lots more love for Hader’s part, this time from Fandango’s Erik Davis. Tags ‘Gruesome, strange but rarely scary’Sean O’Connell of CinemaBlend liked but didn’t love the film, yet is one of many critics raving about the performance of Bill Hader as Richie Tozier. Now playing: Watch this: #ITChapterTwo is a terrific companion to #ITChapterOne. Similar vibes, great ensemble chemistry w/ a nice mix of humor and horror. Part 2 plays heavier in tone, dealing w/ defeating the burden of childhood trauma, & I definitely teared up at the very end.
