Alan Alexander Milne, better known as A. A. Milne, was an author and poet from England, who was particularly famous for being the creator of the character Winnie the Pooh. Milne was educated at the University of Cambridge and initially worked as a playwright; however it was as the writer of Winnie the Pooh in 1926 that he became famous. It was followed up by The House at Pooh Corner two year later. Other than that, he was a prolific writer who wrote children’s short story and poetry collections, newspaper columns, plays and had also been a columnist for the popular magazine Punch.
We are closing corporate loopholes so we are hardly being heroic to close the combined reporting loophole. I think 28 or 30 other states have done it and a lot of those states will be trying to get Amazon.
If you're in Alabama, you're selling tax incentives - with all due respect to Alabama - because what else are you going to sell? In New Jersey, you've got location, public education, highly educated workforce, density, diversity, infrastructure.
When you buy a company that's been on its butt you raise a lot of money, you instantly put new management in place, but that's the end of the glory for three to five years, grinding it out one day after the other.

I think it would be a great honor to get another Super Bowl, but not just limited to that. Other events, sporting or otherwise, I think New Jersey has an enormous opportunity given our location and our natural resources, our passion generally and specifically for sports, I think we're a natural.
I think you can find a good, happy balance between being a great research university as Rutgers is and being a high-quality sports program.
Listen: I love sports and my family loves sports.
I can't give up the allegiances I grew up with, given where I was born and where I grew up, but you won't see me at a Rutgers game rooting for somebody else. Let's put it that way.
Equal pay for equal work isn't, 'Here, I'll give this to you.' It's confidence, it's participation.
Earned sick leave gives workers a lot more confidence and adds to their participation in the economy.
Raising the minimum wage does not take from growth, it adds to growth.
We want to say to everyone: New Jersey's a place where gender does not play a role in how much you get paid.
