Amazon Nixes Connecticut In Bid For 2nd Headquarters

Amazon released its short list of 20 possible regions for its second headquarters, and metropolitan NY made the list. Amazon expects to make a decision in 2018.

Inc. said it will now examine the proposals of the 20 remaining metropolitan areas in even greater detail and determine if the locations could support up to 50,000 new jobs the e-commerce giant intends to create.

Amazon reviewed 238 proposals from across the U.S., Canada, and Mexicoto host HQ2, the company's second headquarters in North America.

Putin takes icy plunge into lake for Epiphany celebration
Asked by a journalist: "Is it cold?" Vladimir Putin is not losing his religion - he IS getting half naked for it though.in public. Russia's President Vladimir Putin on Friday plunged into icy lake waters to observe Epiphany, a Christian feast day.

The list reveals little in terms of geographic preferences, with finalists on both coasts and the heartland.

"Getting from 238 to 20 was very tough, " the company said in a tweet. In addition to Amazon's direct hiring and investment, construction and operation of HQ2 is expected to create tens of thousands of additional jobs and tens of billions of dollars in additional investment in the surrounding community.

According to CNN, the list includes Atlanta, Austin, Boston, Chicago, Columbus, Ohio, Dallas, Denver, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Miami, Montgomery County in Maryland, Nashville, Newark, New York City, Northern Virginia, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Raleigh, Toronto and Washington D.C. Those proposals sought to highlight each city's strengths, based on the wish list the company created to help it find the flawless spot for its new campus. Some people have noted that the Washington/Raleigh/Montgomery County cluster might indicate Amazon has a strong interest in ending up somewhere with close proximity to the seat of US government - but that doesn't mean D.C.is necessarily a shoe-in: Some of the other cities will probably do much better in the evening wear portion of the competition.
