For decades, the notion of going "to work" meant a person being assigned a little space inside of a large building in some pre-determined location.  But in 2032 the "workplace", or more specifically the local array of immersive spaces we now consider optimised for work, is as valuable as ever - even though many thought it might become a relic of the past.


People used to be willing to pick up and move their entire lives to be nearer to that building and have access to a small physical address within it, in which they were assumed to do all of their work.  But after mobile technologies gave rise to "work anywhere" norms and strategies, which often created great disruptions in employee work-life balance, employees and employers began to mutually embrace the notion that there should be easily-accessible spaces where work is optimized - to both enable work and to promote the enjoyment of it.

The Team Welcome Ceremonies formally invite every nation to the Games, while the Victory Ceremonies are the moments every athlete has worked towards.

For people who love their plants, gardening is one of the highlights of summer. But it may be more problematic than usual this year for gardeners with allergies: Experts are predicting that 2012 is going to be worse than previous allergy seasons because extreme weather, mild winter and record rainfalls in some parts of the United States have caused levels of pollen to spike.  But allergies should not keep you from gardening, which is an outdoor activity that many people love doing during this time of the year. The key is knowing what trees to leave alone, flowers to grow, and tasks to avoid.
