Maybe it’s the end of the world, but not for Candace Chen, a millennial, first-generation American and office drone meandering her way into adulthood in Ling Ma’s offbeat, wryly funny, apocalyptic satire, Severance. "A stunning, audacious book with a fresh take on both office politics and what the apocalypse might bring." —Michael Schaub, NPR.org “A satirical spin on the end times-- kind of like The Office meets The Leftovers.” --Estelle Tang, Elle NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY: NPR * The New Yorker ("Books We Loved") * Elle * Marie Claire * Amazon Editors * The Paris Review (Staff Favorites) * Refinery29 * Bustle * Buzzfeed * BookPage * Bookish * Mental Floss * Chicago Review of Books * HuffPost * Electric Literature * A.V.

With the recent passing of her Chinese immigrant parents, she’s had her fill of uncertainty. She’s content just to carry on: She goes to work, troubleshoots the teen-targeted Gemstone Bible, watches movies in a Greenpoint basement with her boyfriend. So Candace barely notices when a plague of biblical proportions sweeps New York. Then Shen Fever spreads. Families flee. Companies cease operations. The subways screech to a halt. Her bosses enlist her as part of a dwindling skeleton crew with a big end-date payoff. Soon entirely alone, still unfevered, she photographs the eerie, abandoned city as the anonymous blogger NY Ghost. Candace won’t be able to make it on her own forever, though. Enter a group of survivors, led by the power-hungry IT tech Bob. They’re traveling to a place called the Facility, where, Bob promises, they will have everything they need to start society anew. But Candace is carrying a secret she knows Bob will exploit. Should she escape from her rescuers? A send-up and takedown of the rituals, routines, and missed opportunities of contemporary life, Ling Ma’s Severance is a moving family story, a quirky coming-of-adulthood tale, and a hilarious, deadpan satire. Most important, it’s a heartfelt tribute to the connections that drive us to do more than survive.

The United States Arms Control and Disarmament Agency (ACDA) is charged with the conduct of the studies on the economic consequences of arms control and disarmament and, in carrying out this responsibility since its establishment in 1961, has sponsored a large number of studies dealing with problems of aggregate, manpower, and regional adjustment to changes in defense spending. The purpose of this study for ACDA is to undertake a preliminary examination of the 'adequacy' of pensions, severance pay, and other fringe benefits for defense workers in the event of layoffs which would occur as the result of arms control or disarmament.

This report examines the effects of a new severance tax on tax revenues collected from California oil properties, the share of the tax borne by California oil producers, refiners, and consumers, and the pattern of oil production in the state. The analysis centered around three basic questions: (1) How much net revenue would a severance tax raise for state and local governments in California? (2) Who would pay the tax? (3) How would the tax affect the production of oil within California? Part I provides some basic background information on severance taxation in general and on oil production in California. It also explains the methodological approach to tax analysis. Part 2 presents the results of the formal analysis. In addition to the three basic questions it also answers the questions: (1) How much net tax burden will fall within California and how much can be exported? (2) How do alternative exemption arrangements affect oil production and revenue collection under a severance tax?
