Today is my Friday this week. It's been a whole 7 days since I returned from holiday vacation so I figure it's time for a break. Here's your morning Sift, readers.
A- Obalesque shares an experience that demonstrates the New Normal in today's Working World.
There is scant professional courtesy, and what used to be called rude is now thought of as efficient. It’s not just the headhunters, it’s the agencies themselves. After all, if employees are not valued, why should non-employees expect any better?B- The Brickell condo market is extremely strong, according to Miami Condo Investments.
As of late, little has been said about the fact that myBrickell and 1100 Millecento are completely out of inventory. With the exception of two very large penthouses, the same goes for BrickellHouse. Take a moment to digest that piece of news. Of the 948 combined units that these three developments represent, only two remain available. That speaks volumes about the strength of this real estate market in Miami.C- Soul of Miami has a nice review of last weekend's Ultimate Miami Food Truck Battle in Miami.
We attended their most recent event Ultimate Miami Food Truck throw down … unfortunately Bobby Flay was absent ;) Magic City Casino hosted the event on their grounds while these trucks competed for a $5,000 prize. Eight finalists remained after previously held preliminary rounds to compete on this glorious, cool crisp evening. The finalists were B.C. Tacos, Crazydilla, Cuban Cube, Food Junkies on Wheels, Ms. Cheezious, Palate Party, Che Grill and The Healthnut on Wheels. The contest was setup so that a truck would be matched up against another truck each serving one chicken dish. Tickets for the Ultimate Miami Food Truck competition were $40 and include two meals from competing trucks, a beverage and 25 percent off all eight food trucks after the competition. The patrons who bought tickets for the event were split in two groups. They participated and voted as audience judges in two of the four rounds for their favorite dish. The four winners of this round advanced to the finals were they each made a different dish of their choosing. Only the three panel judges were able to taste and deem a victor.D- Random Pixels finds reason to question the Herald's 24/7 Information Specialist claims.
Instead of sending a Miami Herald "24/7 Information Specialist" to the scene to report the story, someone at the Herald did what they've been doing a lot of lately...they copied and pasted the information from CBS4.E- Rick Scott continues to intentionally and maliciously deceive Floridians, according to Bark Bark Woof Woof.
