Is he by chance related to the Forest City Ratners?

My first thought was who's nephew is this. But then if he is a Forest City Ratner and the best school they managed to get him in was Emory then I would stay the hell away from the stock.

You sir, are an absolute unit!

as an additional fun fact...I pitched it as a long in an interview with the one the only vampire squid and the guy didn't like it one bit; no second interview was rewarded, no Goldman Sachs Principal Strategies job for me.

  No wonder Buffett sold that trash.

Well, is this better or worse than JW May's bringing in a poker player as a director?

Empire State Building Slashes Carbon Emissions By 40% With Energy Saving Upgrades

https://cleantechnica.com/2020/05/31/empire-state-building-slashes-carbon-emissions-by-40-with-energy-saving-upgrades/

Over the past decade, the trust that owns the Empire State Building has invested more than $30 million to make it more energy efficient.  Today, the improvements made over the past decade are saving $4 million in electricity every year and the project is expected to pay for itself twice over.

The elevators in the building now have energy recovery systems. Think of them as regenerative braking devices that operate vertically instead of horizontally. Every light in the entire building is now an LED, including those that flash from its top at night to remind New Yorkers that brighter days are ahead despite the darkness on the land at present.

Every window has been upgraded to the highest energy conservation standards. Automated window treatments adjust the amount of daylight that enters the rooms during the day to reduce heating and cooling needs and decrease the amount of electricity needed to illuminate the rooms. Heating devices have been modified to make them more efficient.

Here is the much longer article from the Washington Post:  https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/climate-solutions/empire-state-building-emissions/?itid=hp_hp-more-top-stories_climate-solutions-1110am%3Ahomepage%2Fstory-ans
