ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) -- Atlantic City's newest casino is turning to layoffs to help it deal with financial problems as it works its way through bankruptcy court.

Revel laid off 83 workers on Wednesday. The cuts represent about 2.5 percent of the casino's workforce.

Acting CEO Jeffrey Hartmann said the cuts were difficult but necessary for Revel to compete in a challenging market. The $2.4 billion resort opened a year ago, but has languished near the bottom of Atlantic City's 12 casinos in terms of the amount of money won from gamblers.

Revel hopes to emerge from bankruptcy court by early summer with a deal that will wipe out 82 percent of its $1.5 billion debt by converting most of it into equity for lenders.

    Studies: office layout can affect your mental and physical health

    Leaving the office, most of us feel pretty exhausted. Studies now suggest that we can blame much of what ails us physically and mentally on the layout of our workspace. American companies standardized the sprawling square room divided by cubicles or nothing to foster team atmosphere. But newer research suggests that the open-plan office actually raises stress while lowering motivation and focus and maybe even reducing life-expectancy.
