The blog has come to an end

This is the last post on this blog.   I'm still hoping to find folks to take over some content―namely Storifying Helder Gil's DCR tweets and posting Good Council.   If anyone contacts me about taking those over, I'll tweet (@susiecambria) the info.

I'm not leaving DC policy and advocacy for a bit.   I'm working on out-of-school time with some fabulous partners, participating on a planning team for a series of meetings sponsored by the Department of Energy and Environment and National Park Service, and will continue advocacy on the DC FY 2018 budget regarding the cleanup of the Anacostia River and Kenilworth Park.

I'm always up for coffee when I'm in town, so email me if you want to grab a cup.

May 11: Mayor Bowser presser on #dcfy18 amendments

Mayor Bowser will hold a presser Thursday, May 11 at 10:30 am to provide an update on her proposed FY 2018 budget.   She will also "outline amendments to her proposed budget, currently before DC council, as well as discuss how those changes will help to ensure inclusive prosperity for all District residents."

The event takes place in the Mayor’s Press Briefing Room (G-9) in JAWB (1350 Pennsylvania Ave NW).   Can't make it downtown?   Watch the presser on the District of Columbia Network's live feed.

Thought you might be interested Thursday: Beat Generosity Burnout

Another winning article from Harvard Business Review: Beat Generosity Burnout.

Authors Adam Grant, a Wharton professor, and Reb Rebele, Research Project Manager at Wharton, do more than the usual list of do's and don'ts.   Instead, they report their research on the ways givers can sustain their energy and effectiveness.

Their to-avoid: "The road to exhaustion is often paved with good intentions."

It will soon be goodbye

I'm parsing off content regulars to others so that the blog can shut down while the must-have info continues flowing. No worries, the blog will live on, it just won't be updated. So don't panic about printing recipes! The transition will take a little while.

It's been a good run but time for new things.
