New Jersey Office Leasing Activity Slows but not for Northern New Jersey During First Quarter


New Leases on Hudson Waterfront, Renewals Stimulate the Market in Northern New Jersey

It might be described as the “tale of two markets”: the first quarter of 2011 provided both challenges and opportunities within the New Jersey office market, according to new research by Jones Lang LaSalle. While leasing activity slowed in most of the state in the last three months, Northern New Jersey saw glimmers of hope as new leasing along the Hudson Waterfront submarket drove the vacancy rate down 2.9 percentage points to levels not seen in three years.

Affordable Care Act to improve quality of care for people with Medicare


Proposal for Accountable Care Organizations will help better coordinate care, lower costs

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has released proposed new rules to help doctors, hospitals, and other health care providers better coordinate care for Medicare patients through Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs). ACOs create incentives for health care providers to work together to treat an individual patient across care settings – including doctor’s offices, hospitals, and long-term care facilities. The Medicare Shared Savings Program will reward ACOs that lower health care costs while meeting performance standards on quality of care and putting patients first. Patient and provider participation in an ACO is purely voluntary.

An Opinion From NJSAssywoman Connie Wagner



Assemblywoman Connie Wagner
I would like to personally thank Dr. Jim Montesano for his service as superintendent of the Paramus School System; its students, parents and taxpayers. Since Jim's arrival we have worked closely together to unburden our school system from unfunded state mandates and to bring some new ideas to our classrooms. He has provided us with a new direction filled with promise, optimism and achievement. Even without aid from Trenton, Dr. Montesano continued to provide a level of academics that are the envy of other towns. As Dr. Montesano heads to New York I worry that other talented and bright New Jersey superintendents will leave our school systems behind because of the cap Governor Christie has placed on Superintendent salaries. Minnesota imposed a salary cap on superintendents in the 1990s but repealed it after they saw their school leaders leaving for greener pastures.

BoatUS Urges Boaters To Be Heard on New EPA Requirements - Deadline for Public Comments is June 2



Remember the Clean Boating Act of 2008? The bi-partisan federal legislation stopped recreational boats from falling under Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) permit requirements originally targeting “normal operating discharges” from commercial ships. However, the Act required the EPA to analyze recreational boat discharges and eventually mandate “Management Practices” to address environmental concerns.
Now the Agency is asking boaters to speak up about how they operate and maintain their boat as it moves forward developing and eventually implementing those management practices. The deadline for comments is June 2.

Perinatal Mood Disorders: Help is Out There for Women in Bergen County


Resources Include 24-Hour Statewide Help Line and Informational Web Site

Most new mothers – anywhere from 60 to 80 percent – experience at least a brief episode of the "baby blues" – feelings of sadness, anxiety, loneliness, or moodiness – within the first few days of giving birth. After a couple of weeks these symptoms typically disappear. However, when symptoms persist or deepen in intensity, they may be a sign of postpartum depression or another one of several perinatal mood disorders (PMD).

Spring Fashion Cleaning



It's that time of year -- spring ahead and get a fresh start. Start by cleaning out your closet! It's a tough job, but somebody's got to do it, right?

"Cleaning out your closet is always tough, because our clothes hold memories and ignite feelings and emotions," says Andy Paige, fashion expert and author of "Style on a Shoestring" (McGraw Hill, $16.95). "We all remember the dress we wore for a special date with our honey or the business suit that got us our first real job or the jeans that made us feel like a rock star. Letting go of garments that we don't wear anymore but still have fondness for can often be bittersweet."

A Re-election Jobs Report?


Did the big March jobs report put President Obama back on the road to re-election? If so, he can thank the GOP, whose tax cuts saved him from himself. 

You could hear cheering all the way from the West Wing when the Labor Department showed a 216,000 gain in non-farm payrolls, the biggest number in quite some time. Plus, the unemployment rate continued its decline to 8.8 percent. Not so long ago it was nearly 10 percent.
Corporate payrolls have now increased by 478,000 for the first three months of the year.

Freecycling
Each one of us produces 1.2 tons of garbage per year, which is mainly bagged household trash. What's not included in that figure are all the perfectly usable goods that get thrown out each year, such as old furniture, clothes, books, obsolete technology and working appliances.

Many of these items are yard-sale fodder, or can be found parked by the curb with a "free" sign attached. If you can't find what you need through curb-shopping, or the classifieds in this paper, try websites like Craigslist and Freecycle.
