Transcript: In the triangle, you are isolating the important patterns of data the author established. The goal here is not to write down every minute detail, but to look for patterns: note what data the author focused on and whether it is arranged into a connection, contrast, or a surprising anomaly. This will take a lot of the bulk of the article and help you focus not on what small details the author discusses, but why he or she selects those details out of all the details available. In short, summarize a pattern of details and explain whether it is a connection, contrast, or anomaly. [PATTERN FROM DATA COLLATION] reveals [A CONNECTION BETWEEN A NUMBER OF DETALS/ A CONTRAST BETWEEN DETAILS/ A SURPRISING ANOMALY].

Huge talent pool; strong roster of well regarded education institutions Source: CoStar Unemployment had decreased 112 basis points to 5.5 percent in May from 6.2 percent in May of last year. Gains, albeit modest gains, are being made across many office-using sectors including professional and business services and trade, transportation and utilities. Along with this growth the housing market also moved towards full recovery. With employment numbers improving, the real estate market can expect to see more demand as companies expand their footprint. Deliveries (SF) Overall, 10 bps drop year over and small uptick from previous quarter.

Quoted asking rates have recovered from recessionary lows but have yet to make any meaningful long term gains. 2Q 2015 Under Construction (SF) The St. Louis economy will progress this year with strong emplyment gains, which will lead to residential demand. Demand will come from new employees migrating into St. Louis and by the un-bundling of existing households as wages begin to rise and the unemployment continues to decline. The St. Louis apartment market lags slightly behind the national apartment market. The market is currently in the third stage of expansion and is projected to move into the second stage of contraction by 2017 and 2018. The US apartment market is currently in the second stage of contraction and is projected to move into the third stage my 2016 and remain there through 2018.

Transcript: VAFI home page Strategy areas for Govt & Industry 1.Technology literacy & Innovation to wards developing high-performance, low-emission wood products to replace traditional high-emission construction materials. 2. Investment in new long rotation sawlog plantations to supply building industry needs 3. Commercial restoration of degraded forest land 4. Building the capacity of landholders to participate in carbon markets 5. Allow managers to realise the full value of carbon forestry; by promoting research into improved methods for estimating stored carbon that are robust, replicable and can be used routinely by the industry. 6. Renewable energy from biomass Renewable energy policy should also include greater promotion of bioenergy as a viable energy source which is complementary to other renewable energies. Policy development needs to be flexible to support a potentially broad range of bioenergy based opportunities from small co-generation facilities located in small regional areas to large facilities located in the capital cities and other industrial centres. As previously mentioned, there is also the need to develop incentives for the creation and utilisation of renewable bioenergies. p.9 Risk of job losses outweighs park push - Document http://www.viridans.com/ECOVEG/rainforest.htm Forest Industry Taskforce - website Victoria’s Native Timber Industry Factsheet - Forests VIC DELWP - Sustainability Charter Farmer & Cook, Climate hange Science a Modern Synthesis. Vol1 The Physical Climate Environmental science: toward a sustainable future - Richard T. Wright, Dorothy Boorse Themes: Section 3 Weekly Summary The Taskforce will aim for recommendations that will enable us to successfully create and sustain jobs and industry growth in a changing economic environment, to conserve high value ecological assets, to protect key species such as the Leadbeater’s possum and to implement a durable plan for the good stewardship of Victoria’s forests that can be embraced by the Victorian community. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. The areas of shared concern include: ongoing lack of wood and fibre resource security and market certainty which impedes new investment and in turn diminishes employment security and growth; lack of jobs growth, lack of security for existing jobs and stalled opportunities for skill development driven by the uncertainty surrounding businesses in the industry; and a lack of ecological integrity and security across the forest landscape which creates uncertainty and apprehension about the extent to which conservation values, threatened fauna and flora and ecosystem services are protected across eastern Victoria. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. Australian Conservation Foundation The primary purpose of the Forest Industry Taskforce (the Taskforce) is to arrive at a set of long-­term, durable recommendations and proposals for government concerning the future of Victorian forests (east of the Hume Highway), including industry dependent on the forest, jobs reliant on this industry, and the conservation of forest ecosystems and threatened species. This Statement of Intent presents a shared understanding of the challenges and opportunities, and a consensus approach on the next steps to build a durable outcome. Themes: Weekly Summary 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 1. The truth is that the Earth is warming p. viii 2. Scientists and others may differ about their definition of “better” but most want to improve the Earth and human society. p. viii 3. the evolution of Earth’s climate through time, known as paleoclimatology 4. If humans can understand climates of the past, perhaps we can better understand what the climate of the future will be and humankind may be able to mitigate some of the problems that are sure to occur in many future scenarios of Planet Earth’s climate. p.ix 5. Climate change scientists have gone far beyond the simple concept of global warming and now are attempting to devise ways that humans can cope with ever increasing temperatures and their effects. p.x 6. Climate change scientists deal with massive amounts of data over relatively long time periods and are able to see significant trends revealed by analyses of these data. The most obvious are the trends in temperatures, changes in sea level, volume changes in glaciers and their waxing and waning, changes in atmospheric and oceanic circulation, configuration of continents and their locations over the Earth’s surface, trends in energy amounts received and distributed by Earth processes, etc. 7. 8. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.
