Keep Your Kitchen Cool With These No-Cook Dishes

Posted by Coley Ward on Jul 5, 2018 1:20:33 PM

We are in the middle of a brutal stretch of 90-degree days, and if you don't have air conditioning in your home you're probably doing everything in your power to avoid turning on the oven. We'd like to make that a little easier, so here are a handful of no-cook recipes that will keep your belly full and your house cool.

Because different people define no-cook differently, here's our definition: You won't need heat. No ovens. No stoves. No blow torches.

Healthy Workplace Spotlight: Rockhill Management

Posted by Coley Ward on Jun 29, 2018 1:15:31 PM
 
It used to be that if you had a white collar business in Boston, you put your offices downtown. But that's all changed. Now there are more options -- more things to consider. How many food trucks are there within a 100-foot radius? Is there a bike share dock nearby? Do you even want an office? What about a co-working space instead? Or an incubator? Better still, how about everybody telecommutes?!

Rockhill Management, a commercial real estate company that owns several buildings in Downtown Boston and throughout the US, watched as tenants left to move to trendy neighborhoods like The Leather District or Seaport. As a result of shifting makeup of office buildings Downtown, they decided a change in culture at their buildings would go a long way.

"The market has really changed downtown," said Jennifer Twombly, a senior property manager at Rockhill. "It went from a very traditional base to trying to attract companies from the Seaport and Cambridge that are getting priced out of those areas.”

"We started saying we need to attract different types of businesses here."

Posted by Coley Ward on Jun 21, 2018 5:48:47 PM

This week we're shipping out slicing cucumbers, which begged the question: as opposed to what? Turns out there are a few different varieties of cucumbers, but the two most common are slicing and pickling. It also turns out that there's some confusion about what constitutes a slicing pickle.

Healthy Workplace Spotlight: AIR Worldwide

Posted by Coley Ward on Apr 5, 2018 2:57:12 PM
 
The first thing you need to know about AIR Worldwide is that it's pronounced A-I-R, not "air," like the stuff you breathe in. When the company was founded in 1987, it stood for Applied Insurance Research. But today they just go by AIR. (Think ESPN or KFC or QANTAS).

Just because AIR doesn't mean anything doesn't mean the company doesn't stand for something. In the last year, AIR has gotten serious about employee wellness, prompted in part by a grant from the State of Massachusetts' Working On Wellness initiative.
