I have seen your future office building. It looks a lot like this.

This isn't just an office — it's a bold statement. Time for your buildings, and city planners, to step their game up.

Welcome to the home of your future office.

Behold: The Bullitt Center, located in my hometown of Seattle, Wash., has been designed as the most sustainable commercial building in the world.


The Bullitt Center uses only recycled rainwater from for the whole building (insert tired, Seattle rain joke here).

Too hot? Too cold? How about some motorized windows to control temperature and ventilation?

It's entirely solar powered. If Seattle can pull this off, then you're out of excuses, Miami.

The building will produce zero waste. And it's designed to last for 250 years

Watch out, we're dealing with a badass over here: This building's sustainability standards are so tough, it forced the City of Seattle to rewrite some building codes.

Now leasing for its Spring 2013 debut, the Bullitt Center will be around long enough to fill vacancies for your great-great-great-great-great-great-great-great grandchildren's employers.

As face masks have become mandatory in many places to limit the spread of coronavirus, it's also become an increasingly politicized thing. As we know, anything that involves political polarization also involves vast amounts of misinformation and disinformation. Whose idea was the internet again?

No one I know loves wearing a mask. We all wish we didn't have to. But there are an awful lot of people saying they can't wear one, or they refuse to wear one because they've been led to believe that masks are somehow more dangerous than not wearing one. I've seen and read "information" on everything from masks depriving people of oxygen to masks causing CO2 build up to masks creating fungus problems.
