    BCE recommends shareholders reject TRC Capital's "mini-tender offer"

    MONTREAL, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ - BCE Inc. has been notified of an unsolicited mini-tender offer made by TRC Capital Corporation to purchase up to 2 million BCE common shares, or approximately 0.23% of the company's outstanding common shares, at a price of $56 per share. BCE does not endorse this unsolicited offer, has no association with TRC Capital or its offer, and recommends that shareholders do not tender their shares to the offer.

    BCE cautions shareholders that the mini-tender offer has been made at a price below market price for BCE shares. The offer represents a discount of 3.48% on the TSX closing price and 3.47% on the NYSE closing price for BCE common shares on March 7, 2017, the last trading day before the mini-tender offer was commenced.

    According to TRC Capital's offer documents, BCE shareholders who have already tendered their shares can withdraw their shares at any time before 12:01 am eastern time on April 6, 2017 by following the procedures described in the offer documents.

    Mini-tender offers are designed to seek less than 5% of a company's outstanding shares, avoiding disclosure and procedural requirements applicable to most bids under Canadian and U.S. securities regulations. The Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) and the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) have expressed serious concerns about mini-tender offers, including the possibility that investors might tender to such offers without understanding the offer price relative to the actual market price of their securities.

    The SEC states that "bidders make mini-tender offers at below-market prices, hoping that they will catch investors off guard if the investors do not compare the offer price to the current market price."

    BCE strongly encourages brokers, dealers and other market participants to exercise caution and review the letter regarding broker-dealer mini-tender offer dissemination and disclosures on the SEC website at www.sec.gov/divisions/marketreg/minitenders/sia072401.htm

    BCE requests that a copy of this news release be included in any distribution of materials relating to TRC Capital's mini-tender offer for BCE shares.

    Comments from the CSA on mini-tenders can be found on the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) website at www.osc.gov.on.ca/en/SecuritiesLaw_csa_19991210_61-301.jsp

    Information about mini-tender offers can be found on the SEC website at www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/minitend.htm.

    TRC Capital has made similar unsolicited mini-tender offers for shares of other public companies in Canada and elsewhere.

    AT&T Celebrates the Power of Sisterhood with Luvvie Ajayi at the Black Enterprise Women of Power SummitAT&T Presents an Exclusive Fireside Chat with the Best-selling Author and Self-made Digital Media Maven Luvvie

    DALLAS, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Best-selling author and digital strategist Luvvie Ajayi joins AT&T* at the Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit in Phoenix March 9-12. Best known for her popular blog Awesomely Luvvie, Ajayi will take part in a special dose of "real talk" Friday night. She'll discuss her compelling journey and the power of sisterhood and digital connections.

    We will host an invitation-only "Seat at the Table with Luvvie" for top influential attendees at the Summit. All attendees are invited to join a fireside chat with Luvvie under the Arizona open sky.

    Ajayi will open up about her first best-seller "I'M JUDGING YOU: The Do-Better Manual." The book chronicles her path and lessons she learned about the power of women along the way. She will also talk about how she used a "mean digital game" to build her own personal brand.

    "I've lost count of the many women who pushed me to do my best, opened doors for me, mentored me or simply had an encouraging word," Ajayi said. "Much of it came through social media and digital connections. So, it makes sense for me to sync with AT&T to open a dialogue with some of corporate America's most powerful women of color about this very topic."

    The fireside chat with Luvvie will start at 9 p.m. MT Friday, March 10. But attendees won't have to wait until then for the fun. Earlier that day, there will be a panel featuring AT&T Chief Storyteller and Director of Social Media Joy Hays and other digital movers and shakers.

    Senior Vice President and Chief Diversity Officer Cynt Marshall will introduce Luvvie at the fireside chat. Black Enterprise named Marshall to the Black Enterprise Most Powerful Women in Business list. The list calls out the highest-ranking and most influential black women executives in the nation.

    Conference goers can also enjoy the AT&T Power Lounge. They can kick back, charge devices and learn the latest about AT&T offerings, including the new DIRECTV NOW streaming video service.

    The Black Enterprise Women of Power Summit will take place at the Arizona Grand Resort & Spa-Palm Court.

Changing cutting length is easy with a quick-adjust dial that provides five trim lengths and included three dual-sided comb attachments that quickly snap onto the clipper head. The ER-GP80-K is also equipped with a high-powered Lithium Ion battery for up to 8 hours of cordless use, or users can operate corded for extended use.

    O.J.: Made in America, Winner of the 2017 Academy Award(R) for Best Documentary Feature, Captured with Canon Cinema EOS C300 Camera

    MELVILLE, N.Y., March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, is proud to congratulate O.J.: Made in America, ESPN Films' five-part documentary directed by Ezra Edelman and shot by Nick Higgins on winning the 2017 Academy Award((R)) for Best Documentary Feature. The film blends archival video with new footage captured primarily with the Canon EOS C300 Digital Cinema Camera.

    Cinematographer Nick Higgins chose the EOS C300 camera for O.J.: Made in America because of the small form factor and ability to capture long takes without stopping. Higgins said, "The EOS C300 was the best camera to shoot this documentary. I really appreciate the small form factor, and was able to roll for hours and hours with just two 64 GB cards and AC power."

    The ability to shoot for long periods of time with limited interruption was crucial. "Interviews for this film lasted at least three hours and were typically around five or six hours long; our longest was eight hours long," Higgins explained. "The topic of conversation was always intense, and the flow would have been completely thrown off if I had to interrupt for the camera. That's why the EOS C300 was so important to this project."

    In terms of lenses, Higgins' relied on the Canon EF 50mm f/1.2L USM lens. "I shot the vast majority on the 50mm at an f2," Higgins said. "That way, I could make the background abstract without fearing that the subject would go in and out of focus as they breathed."

    "When our skilled engineers develop cameras and lenses, it is our greatest hope that they end up in the hands of filmmakers like Nick Higgins and the team behind O.J.: Made in America," said Yuichi Ishizuka, President and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. "We extend our congratulations on the Oscar((R)) win, from everyone at Canon."

    AUSTIN, Texas, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Crossroads Systems, Inc. , an intellectual property licensing company, reported financial results for its fiscal first quarter ended January 31, 2017.

    Fiscal Q1 2017 operating expenses decreased 63% to $863,000, compared to $2.3 million in the same period a year ago. The decreases were primarily due to reduced litigation related expenses.

    StreetEasy Debuts New Advertising Campaign in New York City

    NEW YORK, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- StreetEasy(R), New York City's leading real estate marketplace, debuted a new out-of-home advertising campaign this week titled "Find Your Place", following the company's successful debut in 2015 with "Live As You Please" and subsequent campaign in 2016, "Find Your Formula."

    "Find Your Place" showcases the array of amenities and options available to buyers and renters on StreetEasy and captures how each New Yorker's personal journey fuels their real estate search. The ads show how life experiences can dictate what people want or need in a new home, and how searching on StreetEasy can help you find it. Quippy text and wry realism are the focus of each ad, underscored by an illustrated cityscape of different home types found in New York City. These elements recall StreetEasy's previous ads, and embody the experience of any New Yorker searching for a new home.

    Amenities such as "outdoor space," "laundry in building" and "doorman" are among the terms highlighted within the collection of advertisements.

    "Searching for a home is a challenge and a journey, and StreetEasy offers a wide-range of New York City-centric search filters and content to help buyers and renters find the right place for them," said Susan Daimler, general manager of StreetEasy. "This campaign humorously depicts the different and ever shifting priorities that exist in a dynamic market like New York City."

    Similar to the previous campaigns, this third iteration was created with Office of Baby. Ads will appear throughout the city with a focus on placements where New Yorkers spend most of their time: on the streets and sidewalks, in subway stations, subway cars, buses and taxis. The campaign rolls out this week and will continue through the spring shopping season.

    A sampling of different illustrations included in the StreetEasy campaign can be found on the StreetEasy blog, here.

    About StreetEasy:
    StreetEasy is New York City's leading local real estate marketplace on mobile and the web, providing accurate and comprehensive for-sale and for-rent listings from hundreds of real estate brokerages throughout New York City and the major NYC metropolitan area. StreetEasy adds layers of proprietary data and useful search tools to help home shoppers and real estate professionals navigate the complex real estate markets within the five boroughs of New York City, as well as Northern New Jersey and the Hamptons.

    MySize Inc. Developing New Measurement Application for "Off-Line" Apparel Shopping

    AIRPORT CITY, Israel, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

    MySize Inc. [http://mysizeid.com ] (the "Company") , developer of proprietary, smartphone measurement applications, announced today that the Company has begun developing a new application meant to support "off-line" shopping.

    The new app, which has yet to be branded, is intended to support on site retail sales.

    Sales people in a shop would use the app to create a measurement profile for customers physically at the store that can be used for future purposes, on or off-line.

    This is likely to encourage return visits and increase customer loyalty and retention.

    "To date, it's been all about the online clothes shopping, which continues to grow at lightning speed. However, off-line retail still remains the bigger piece of the pie and a very important market," said Ronen Luzon, CEO of MySize. Our intention is to improve the shopping experience for all customers, whether shopping on or off line so that can always choose the right size, the first time. And, like we always say, happy customers mean less returns and better profits for retailers. It's a win-win situation for everyone."

    About MySize Inc.

    MySize Inc. (TASE: MYSZ) has developed a unique measurement technology based on sophisticated algorithms and cutting edge technology with broad applications including apparel industry, e-commerce, shipping and parcel industry measurement. This proprietary technology is driven by several patent-pending algorithms which are able to calculate and record measurements in a variety of novel ways.

    Semler Reports Fourth Quarter and Annual 2016 Financial ResultsContinuing to Increase Market Penetration of its QuantaFlo(TM) product

    PORTLAND, Ore., March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Semler Scientific, Inc. (OTCQB: SMLR), an emerging growth company that provides technology and software solutions to improve the clinical effectiveness of healthcare providers, today reported financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2016.

    "During the fourth quarter, we continued to increase the market penetration of our QuantaFlo(TM) product, which we believe is due to the clinical benefits associated with its use," said Doug Murphy-Chutorian, M.D., chief executive officer of Semler. "Our financial goal in 2017 is to generate cash from operating activities by growing revenue, controlling expenses while at the same time minimizing stockholder dilution," he added.

    FINANCIAL RESULTS

    For the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to corresponding period of 2015, Semler had:

    --  Revenue of $2,316,000, a decrease of $618,000, compared to $2,934,000,
    primarily due to $1,444,000 less revenue from having de-emphasized sales
    of the lower margin WellChec(TM) service, which was partially offset by
    an increase of $826,000, or 55% growth, from concentrating on sales of
    the higher margin vascular testing products (e.g. QuantaFlo(TM))
    --  Total operating expense, which includes cost of revenue, of $2,419,000,
    a decrease of $4,721,000, compared to $7,140,000 primarily due to a
    decrease of $1,978,000 in stock compensation expense and a decrease of
    $1,621,000 in WellChec(TM) expenses
    --  Cost of revenue of $525,000, a decrease of $1,435,000, compared to
    $1,960,000, primarily due to the change in product mix mentioned above
    --  Net loss of $220,000, or $0.04 per share, a decrease of $3,988,000,
    compared to a net loss of $4,208,000, or $0.84 per share
    

    For the year ended December 31, 2016, compared to 2015, Semler had:

    --  Revenue of $7,434,000, an increase of $433,000, compared to $7,001,000,
    primarily due to an increase of $2,288,000 from our vascular testing
    products, partially offset by a decrease of $1,855,000 from
    de-emphasizing the lower margin WellChec(TM) service
    --  Total operating expense, which includes cost of revenue, of $9,593,000,
    a decrease of $5,827,000, compared to $15,420,000, primarily due to a
    decrease of $2,305,000 in stock compensation expense and a decrease of
    $1,499,000 in WellChec(TM) expenses
    --  Cost of revenue of $1,873,000, a decrease of $974,000, compared to
    $2,847,000 primarily due to the change in product mix mentioned above
    --  Net loss of $2,554,000, or $0.50 per share, a decrease of $5,947,000,
    compared to a net loss of $8,501,000, or $1.72 per share
    

    For the three months ended December 31, 2016, compared to three months ended September 30, 2016, Semler had:

    --  Revenue of $2,316,000, an increase of $334,000, or 16.8%, compared to
    $1,982,000, during both of these three-month periods, revenue was solely
    from our vascular testing products
    --  Total operating expense, which includes cost of revenue, of $2,419,000,
    an increase of $182,000, compared to $2,237,000
    --  Cost of revenue of $525,000, an increase of $127,000, compared to
    $398,000
    --  Net loss of $220,000, or $0.04 per share, a decrease of $142,000,
    compared to a net loss of $362,000, or $0.07 per share
    

    As of December 31, 2016 compared to December 31, 2015, Semler had:

    --  Cash of $622,000, an increase of $217,000, compared to $405,000
    

    2016 Highlights

    The major accomplishments of 2016 were as follows:

    1. Increased the established base of QuantaFlo(TM) installations
    2. Migrated customers to QuantaFlo(TM) from its lower-priced predecessor
    product
    3. Contracted with home risk assessment ("HRA") companies to use
    QuantaFlo(TM) in order to enhance their wellness services
    

    In 2017, revenue from QuantaFlo(TM) is expected to continue to grow due to an increasing number of installations, higher average pricing as compared to its predecessor product, and the recurring revenue business model.

    In 2017, as in the second half of 2016, Semler prefers to work as a secondary vendor to its HRA customers rather than be a primary vendor for its WellChec(TM) business. WellChec(TM) was responsible for both substantial revenue growth and associated start-up costs in 2015. By focusing on its QuantaFlo(TM) business and being a secondary vendor for wellness services, Semler intends to better leverage capital, have lower financial risk and require less operational expertise, while potentially having a higher margin business.

    "We continue to grow QuantaFlo(TM) revenue and to reduce our net operating loss as we near profitability," said Dr. Murphy-Chutorian. "Our immediate objective is to become the standard of care for testing to identify patients at risk for heart attacks and strokes to enable better preventive medical care," he added.

    Semler will host a conference call at 11 a.m. ET, Friday, March 10th, 2017. The call will address fourth quarter and year-end results and will provide a business update on Semler's market outlook and strategies for the near-term future.

    CAUTIONARY STATEMENT

    The following is a cautionary statement made under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995: With the exception of historical facts, the statements contained in this release may be forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements represent our management's judgment regarding future events. In many cases, you can identify forward-looking statements by terminology such as "may," "will," "plan," "expect," "anticipate," "estimate," "believe," or "continue" or the negative of these terms or other similar words. Actual results and events could differ materially and adversely from those contained in the forward-looking statements due to a number of factors, including: uncertainties regarding our ability to execute our restructuring plans within expected costs and timing; increases in our overall debt levels as a result of the acquisition of the Power Transmission Solutions ("PTS") business from Emerson Electric Co., or otherwise and our ability to repay principal and interest on our outstanding debt; actions taken by our competitors and our ability to effectively compete in the increasingly competitive global electric motor, power generation and mechanical motion control industries; our ability to develop new products based on technological innovation and the marketplace acceptance of new and existing products; fluctuations in commodity prices and raw material costs; our dependence on significant customers; issues and costs arising from the integration of acquired companies and businesses such as PTS, including the timing and impact of purchase accounting adjustments; prolonged declines in oil and gas up stream capital spending; economic changes in global markets where we do business, such as reduced demand for the products we sell, currency exchange rates, inflation rates, interest rates, recession, government policies, including policy changes affecting taxation, trade, immigration and the like, and other external factors that we cannot control; product liability and other litigation, or claims by end users, government agencies, or others that our products or our customers' applications failed to perform as anticipated, particularly in high volume applications or where such failures are alleged to be the cause of property or casualty claims; unanticipated liabilities of acquired businesses; unanticipated costs or expenses we may incur related to product warranty issues; our dependence on key suppliers and the potential effects of supply disruptions; infringement of our intellectual property by third parties, challenges to our intellectual property, and claims of infringement by us of third party technologies; effect on earnings of any significant impairment of goodwill or intangible assets; cyclical downturns affecting the global market for capital goods; difficulties associated with managing foreign operations; and other risks and uncertainties including but not limited to those described in Item 1A-Risk Factors of the Company's Annual Report on Form 10-K filed on March 1, 2017 and from time to time in our reports filed with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to us or to persons acting on our behalf are expressly qualified in their entirety by the applicable cautionary statements. The forward-looking statements included in this release are made only as of their respective dates, and we undertake no obligation to update these statements to reflect subsequent events or circumstances.

    NON-GAAP MEASURES AND OTHER DEFINITIONS

    We prepare financial statements in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States ("GAAP"). We also periodically disclose certain financial measures in our quarterly earnings releases, on investor conference calls, and in investor presentations and similar events that may be considered "non-GAAP" financial measures. We believe that these non-GAAP financial measures are useful measures for providing investors with additional information regarding our results of operations and for helping investors understand and compare our operating results across accounting periods and compared to our peers. In addition, since our management often uses these non-GAAP financial measures to manage and evaluate our business, make operating decisions, and forecast our future results, we believe disclosing these measures helps investors evaluate our business in the same manner as management. This additional information is not meant to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for our results of operations prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.

    In this release, we disclose the following non-GAAP financial measures, and we reconcile these measures in the tables below to the most directly comparable GAAP financial measures: adjusted diluted earnings per share.

    In addition to these non-GAAP measures, we also use the term "organic sales" to refer to GAAP sales from existing operations excluding sales from acquired businesses recorded prior to the first anniversary of the acquisition less the amount of sales attributable to any divested businesses ("acquisition sales"), and the impact of foreign currency translation. The impact of foreign currency translation is determined by translating the respective period's sales (excluding acquisition sales) using the same currency exchange rates that were in effect during the prior year periods. We use the term "organic sales growth" to refer to the increase in our sales between periods that is attributable to organic sales.

    RECONCILIATION OF 2017 ADJUSTED ANNUAL GUIDANCE Minimum Maximum ----------------------------------------------- ------- ------- 2017 Diluted EPS Annual Guidance $4.35 $4.75 Restructuring and Related Costs 0.15 0.15 Gains on Disposals of Businesses - - 2017 Adjusted Diluted EPS Annual Guidance $4.50 $4.90 ===== =====

    *This earnings release includes non-GAAP financial measures. Descriptions of why we believe these non-GAAP measures are useful and reconciliations of these non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures are included with this earnings release.

    DSK Bank Turns to IBM Cloud to Improve Banking Experience for CustomersDSK Bank Chooses IBM Cloud for Core Banking Systems, Expects up to 20% of Annual Recurring Savings

    SOFIA, Bulgaria, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- IBM and DSK Bank today announced that they have completed the migration of DSK's banking operations to IBM's datacenters as part of a long-term IT services agreement to manage the IBM Cloud infrastructure that supports bank's operations in Bulgaria.

    DSK has selected private cloud capabilities to transform its core banking platform and develop new services for its more than three-million individual and business clients. This is the latest example of how cloud and traditional IT are converging in the enterprise and how financial institutions enable innovation by consuming IT in an "as-a-service" model.

    DSK Bank, founded in 1951 as the State Savings Bank, is the biggest Bulgarian bank in terms of assets and branches, and the bank of choice for almost all Bulgarian families. This project will support its objectives to serve equally well different generations and clients - from millennials demanding new mobile and Internet banking services, to small and big enterprises requiring flexibility, security and availability, and through the elderly generation who need to access bank's services even in the most remote locations.

    "As a result of working with IBM, we expect to generate up to 20 percent in annual recurring savings," said Nikolay Shalamanov, Head of Directorate Operative Maintenance of IT systems, DSK Bank, OTP Group. "We are already feeling the benefits of the new way of working - according to our daily statistics bank's most critical applications, DSK Direct for e-banking and DSK Smart for mobile payments - are running faster by 10 to 15 percent."

    DSK Bank has been a long-term IBM client. This agreement takes the relationship between the two companies to next level as IBM Cloud portfolio offers highly secure deployment options that can help banks like DSK develop new client experiences for diverse customer sets, enable effective collaboration and improve speed to market - all while increasing IT efficiency.

    "Adopting this innovative IBM Cloud model will set the bank to benefit from future cognitive technologies," said Igor Pravica, Country Leader, IBM Bulgaria. "Our approach is based on the highest security standards and it will ensure an enterprise that is secure, scalable and can handle mission-critical workloads efficiently."

    As part of the agreement IBM will run the complete IT infrastructure, supporting DSK Bank's core banking environment. IBM will also provide fully managed services for mainframe, servers, storage, end-user computing, help desk as well as software support. DSK Bank will now rely on the best of breed data center services from IBM Tier III Datacenters based in Vienna, Austria. This will create greater flexibility, performance, economy and resilience the bank requires to support its growth objectives. The solution is fully aligned with European Union's regulations for free movement of data and leverages IBM's long standing experience in the financial services sector.

    "With this strategic shift we will assist DSK Bank in accelerating time to market, addressing and improving customer service," said Michael Paier, General Manager, IBM South East Europe. "DSK Bank will be able to evolve its services with new capabilities that leverage IBM's investments in cloud, as well as analytics and security."

    Work Keeps Nearly Half of Workers Up at Night, According to New CareerBuilder Survey

    CHICAGO and ATLANTA, March 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Employers beware: the switch to daylight savings time this weekend may result in more yawning in the office and a potential dip in productivity. According to a new survey from CareerBuilder, 1 in 4 workers (26 percent) feel they do not get enough sleep each night, and 60 percent of all workers say that a lack of sleep has negatively impacted their work. Ironically, nearly half of all workers (47 percent) say thinking about work keeps them up at night.

    Further, only 17 percent of all workers get at least eight hours of sleep a night-- which can have a negative impact on productivity, among other factors.

    More than 3,600 workers across industries (including 3,411 in the private sector) participated in the nationwide survey, conducted online by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder from November 16 and December 6, 2016.

    While eight hours may be the doctor-recommended amount of sleep time each night, less than 1 in 5 workers (17 percent) say they actually reach this goal. Half of workers (52 percent) log an average of five to seven hours of sleep each night, while 6 percent average less than five hours per night.

    For some workers, hitting the snooze button in attempt to doze a little bit longer just doesn't cut it. One in five workers (22 percent) have called in sick for the purpose of getting extra sleep.

    "As Americans work extended hours, routinely take work home, and juggle two or more jobs on top of long commutes, sleep has become a casualty of the race for time," said Rosemary Haefner, chief human resources officer at CareerBuilder. "But lack of sleep undermines performance and can create a vicious cycle of working more hours to compensate for diminished productivity and having less time to sleep. Employers can take steps to make sure their workers are getting enough sleep, such as by tweaking night shift schedules or imposing limits on consecutive shifts. They can also have wellness initiatives that encourage workers to go to sleep at the same time every night and create a relaxing bedroom environment."

    Skimping on Sleep Affects Your Work
    Sleep-deprivation doesn't just hurt workers - it hurts business, too. Three in five workers (60 percent) say lack of sleep has had an impact on their work in some way, including the following:

    --  It makes the day go by slower: 29 percent
    --  It makes me less motivated: 27 percent
    --  It makes me less productive: 25 percent
    --  It affects my memory: 19 percent
    --  It takes me longer to complete tasks: 13 percent
    --  It makes me crabby with my coworkers: 13 percent
    --  It makes me make mistakes: 12 percent
    --  It makes me resent my job: 8 percent
    

    A significant proportion of workers can't seem to escape work, even while they're sleeping. Sixty-five percent reported that they have dreamed about work at one time, with more than 1 in 10 (13 percent) saying it happens always or often.

    10 Strange Work Dreams
    When asked the craziest work dream they've had, workers said the following:

    --  Tyrannosaurus rex worked at my office.
    --  I showed up to work three hours late, and I was only half dressed. That
    was OK though, because we have a relaxed dress code. The problem was I
    had not realized the Queen of England was visiting, and I felt
    embarrassed.
    --  I work with software. While I was pregnant, I had a dream that I had to
    upload my unborn baby at the end of every day, or she'd lose her
    development for the day.
    --  My coworker had a baby but wrapped it in a burrito wrapper.
    --  I was naked getting ready to get on a roller coaster while trying to
    reconcile an account I'm working on.
    --  My boss and I were mowing a lawn in the clouds on a go-kart.
    --  My boss adopted me and my coworkers. He got us housing and took us
    shopping.
    --  Famous people worked with me in place of my coworkers.
    --  I drove the forklift home from work.
    --  I opened a "bank and brew" where customers, after doing their banking
    business, had a choice of craft beers and tapas.
    

    Some are open to dreaming in the office: nearly 2 in 5 workers (38 percent) would take advantage of a designated "nap room" if offered at their place of work. But 94 percent of workers would not take a pay cut for the ability to go in two hours later.

    Survey Methodology
    This survey was conducted online within the U.S. by Harris Poll on behalf of CareerBuilder among 3,616 employees ages 18 and over (employed full-time, not self-employed, including 3,411 in the private sector) between November 16 and December 6, 2016. With a pure probability sample of 3,616, one could say with a 95 percent probability that the overall results have a sampling error of +/- 1.63 percentage points.
