Thursday is the deadline for bids for Amazon.com Inc.'s (Nasdaq: AMZN) second USA headquarters. The answer is no, we're Indianapolis.

Amazon will make its decision known next year.

"It was exciting to work with all the regional players and see something come to fruition", Ennis said. Gilbert told Crain's earlier this month that a "robust" incentives package is part of the equation, but also said it likely won't be the determining factor for Amazon. Indianapolis is one of more than 50 cities vying for that headquarters which is expected to bring in billions of dollars and more than 50,000 jobs.

But the city has pros and cons in terms of its potential for Amazon's new headquarters, said CKNW business analyst Robert Levy.

Comisar did not disclose the specific sites, but one San Fernando Valley-area councilman, Bob Blumenfield, has been vocal about his support for bringing Amazon to the former Rocketdyne site in Woodland Hill's Warner Center.

We did reach out to the Mayor's office for comment, but so far haven't heard back.

"Northwest Indiana touts a close proximity to Chicago; Gary and Griffith airports; and enjoys the benefits of Indiana's 'pro-business environment, '" the resolution said.

IN is in the running to be chosen as online behemoth Amazon.com Inc.'s new headquarters.

Barrick and Tanzania sign pact
The government claimed that the miner owed royalties on undeclared exports and owed back taxes up to US$190bn. Miner said it doesn't even have the $300 million Barrick has promised to the Tanzanian government.

Hammond Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr., said he looked at the old state line generator facility in Hammond and thought it would be a disservice to Hammond not to put in a separate bid.

Here is exactly what I would say to Amazon on this subject.

"I felt like it was possible", McDermott said.

Housing site Apartment List found that the flood of Amazon employees to Seattle has coincided with rent increases that surpass the rates of nearly all other US cities and the fastest growth rate nationwide in home prices.

"What happens when everyone is equal, is people have to figure out a way to differentiate themselves", said Kim Saxton, a marketing professor at the IU Kelley School of Business.

Amazon is looking at a location with "strong local and regional talent", according to its website.

Allen said the L.A. region's bid was done in "full cooperation of California Governor Jerry Brown, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, City of Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti and his staff and the mayors and city managers of each city in the region with a site meeting or exceeding Amazon's requirements ..."

Freeman-Wilson established a more-than-60-member steering committee to help guide the city's bid for the second headquarters, including representatives from economic development groups, officials from surrounding communities, county elected officials and other stakeholders all the way to South Bend. "We give Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos an opportunity to grow his world-class organization while playing a vital role in the transformation of a community and region", Freeman-Wilson added.
