Garage door repair should be a priority.

Growing up, I got to experience the best and the worst parts about living in a small community.  The great thing about being able to leave your house unlocked is that it represents your faith in the community.  You know that no one will enter your house because that is the right thing to do. That is the case until someone does enter your house and there is an issue.  That is what happened to my family and we found ourselves going through our stuff to find out what was missing.  As it turns out, the burglar went through the garage to access our house and the rest, as they say, is history.

Fast forward to today, I am at work with a non functioning garage door.  The door doesn’t work very well and that means that I am struggling with the stress of having a room open to the public.

I am focused, today, on getting my garage door repaired.  There are a number of things that could go wrong if I do not get it repaired.  The first would be that someone could break into the garage.  This actually happened to someone else in my neighborhood recently and I think that I would be much more prepared to prevent that by tackling the problem now.  The second thing to keep in mind is that I should figure out a way to update the door.  The garage does not look as good as it could, so I am trying to figure out just what I can do to makes sure that the garage door fits in with the rest of my house and the community.

garage door repairThe type of garage door that I would like to be installed is the wood one with the glass windows at the top. I am not sure why I think that the garage would look so much better if that is what I was going to do, but I do think that it would do wonders for my house. The other thing to keep in mind is that I have a number of other things to update in the house, so it would allow for me to prioritize how I would like to move forward.  There are some garage door services that would allow for me to get the door installed in the same day as ordering.  I am very much looking forward to the day that I will be able to get that done.  It would be a huge opportunity for me to have all of that kind of thing paid for.  I am not sure when that might become a reality for me, but at least I know that I have something that I can work toward.  It would be a huge advantage to me and my girlfriend for me to ascend to that status.  Hopefully that is the case at least.  I know that it will take some hard work, but I am ready for the challenge of updating my house for the future of my family.

Get a Home Inspection Before Selling

Selling your home can be awfully hard in particular markets. Years ago, my parents were trying to sell their home. They must have had it on the market for about two years. They would occasionally have someone come by and look at it. Maybe they would have some mild interest. Someone might even give an offer. It would be way below what my parents could afford to sell the house for. After those two years, my parents just called it quits and settled into the house. The housing market is awfully fickle now. It rewards some handsomely while giving other no love. If there is something that you can do to make your home more appealing to a buyer, it is important to capitalize on that thing now more than ever. The reason applies for both those in hot markets and cold ones. Any little advantage in a hot market is going to compound the potential earnings that are made from the house’s sale. On the other hand, any little edge that you can give your home in a cold market is just that much more of a chance that you have of selling it.


Hiring a home inspector to get an official review of the house’s integrity is one of the ways of increasing the allure of the home in the eyes of the buyer. Again, the value of it translates across markets. In a hot market, you need your house to stick out among the sea of other options. If the market it hot, then there are probably a number of other people selling in order to capitalize upon the good economic conditions for sellers. Additionally, in a hot market, houses move fast. I heard that in Denver, the average number of days that a house is on the market was something crazy-low, like two weeks. People do not have a lot of time, and so if you can indicate with an official radon inspection, which is particularly important in Denver, that the house is up to a certain standard of infrastructural integrity, the buyer does not have to play the guessing game. He or she knows what they are getting into, and they are better able to assess their total investment. Of course, the cost of house is not just the value of the structure and closing costs but also of any repairs and adjustments that need to be done to the home.


In a cold market, whatever you can do to make your house more appealing will help sell it. Transparency is the value of the home inspection here. Just like the hot market home, the buyer knows the risk involved in the house. Cold market buyers are timid and wary of getting a bad deal. If you can demonstrate to a buyer what exactly the condition of the house, they know what the risks are of buying the house. They should allay their anxieties enough to at least continue the conversation long enough to get the house sold.

HOA Management companies and their responsibilities

There are a number of different HOA Management Companies out there like Accu Inc. that work hard to make sure that the homeowners and renters in any given neighborhood are taken care of and happy in their neighborhood. Sometimes the HOA Management Company can seem like the bad guy if they are on you to fix something but generally they are there for the good of the neighborhood. In order to make the most of having a property manager in your neighborhood there are a few little things that you can management

  1. Figure out and then follow the HOA’s rules, these are not arbitrary rules my friend. HOAs have the reputation for being fairly steadfast when it comes to enforcing the rules. Usually your HOA Management Company such as Accu Inc. will give you all of the information when you come into the neighborhood. Make sure that you read all of the information so that you know what all of the rules are and what you can and cannot do.
  2. Knowing the rules means that you get to check and make sure that the home that you want to buy is not breaking any rules already. No one wants to have to spend their life savings on something only to find out that a number of other steps have to be taken in order to get the house up to regulation.
  3. Learn about all of the fees. Generally community association management companies will charge all of the members between two and four hundred dollars a month for the organization. It is important to check not only how much is charged every month but also how often the fees increase and by how much they usually go up, if the homeowners association management company is allowed to ask for money outside of your normal monthly fee and then what kind of services are provided by the homeowner association. Sometimes you get very little while other times there might be inclusions such as a neighborhood pool and gym or cable television.
  4. Take a look around the neighborhood and make sure that the property manager is actually taking good care of the neighborhood. No one wants to pay a high monthly fee if the work is not being done to show for it. You might also be able to look at the minutes from previous meetings with the homeowners association, which might help you see where all of the money comes from and where it goes a little bit better.
  5. Make sure to consider if this is what you really want. If you buy a home within a housing association neighborhood there is no getting out of it without selling the home. Ask yourself if you are the type of person who is ok making a few compromises for the good of the neighborhood in order to live in a community that is up to a certain set of standards or are you the type of person who hates being told what to do. This more than anything else should really be a factor

regenerative medicineIn recent years there have been many exciting medical advancements that have changed the way that we view medical treatments today. We are constantly learning new things about the human body and its natural repair system. There has been a great focus in recent years on how we can promote the body’s natural repair process to help treat a number of different medical conditions. This focus is called regenerate medicine. Regenerative medicine promotes the natural functioning of the body’s immune defenses to  increase the repair process response and promote the growth of healthy cells and restore the proper function of damaged tissues, organs, and cells. In order to understand how to promote the body’s natural repair functions it is important for researchers in this field to understand how and why stem cells are able to develop into other specialized types of cells. By manipulating stem cells and encouraging them to develop in to certain types of cells there is great potential for the future of regenerative medicine to be able to grow stem cells as certain types of cells, such as blood cells, and implant those cells in to an affected patient to repair damaged cells or defend the body against dangerous cell types.

There are many exciting opportunities that come along with the growth of the regenerative medicine field, including possibilities in the future to develop “tissue replacement therapies” that could restore the proper functioning of damaged organs and tissues. One day the hope is that the processes of regenerative medicine will be able to potentially grow  new and fully functioning organs that can be transplanted in to the affected patient’s body. If this becomes a reality it could eliminate much of the need for organ and blood donors. Researchers in the field of regenerative medicine are hopeful that one day they will be able to grow fully functioning organs and tissues in the lab that can be used for treatment of many different diseases. These therapies are still in the beginning testing stages and must be tested for safety and long term effectiveness before being made available to the public.

One type of stem cell therapy that is already widely used among the public is called stem cell transplant or bone marrow transplant. This is the process of acquiring healthy stem cells either from a donor or from an unaffected area of the patient to be stored and then later implanted in to the affected patient. Stem cell or bone marrow transplants that use stem cells from a donor are called allogenic transplants. Transplant that take stem cells from the affected patient to be stored and returned to the patient later are called autologous transplants. Both transplants are widely used for the treatment of many diseases including sickle cell anemia, multiple myeloma, and leukemia. This type of stem cell therapy has a high success rate although there are major complications that can arise. One such complication is called graft versus host, which can occur after an allogenic transplant. Graft versus host is when the patient’s body rejects the transplanted cells.

I needed to find a good oral surgeon and fast!

I recently learned that I would have to have my wisdom teeth removed and I needed to quickly find an oral surgeon who could take care of my problem.  I has assumed that this would not happen to me, since many of my friends had theirs removed years ago.  I figured that somehow I had just been skipped over or simply did not have wisdom teeth. It turns out, this was not the case.

I went in for my annual teeth cleaning and my dentist decided that he would do a routine x-ray of my teeth as well, to make sure everything looked OK.  I was very surprised when I got a call back from my dentists office a few days later informing me that my wisdom teeth were very close to the surface and completely in the wrong direction! He told me that if I did not act fast and find an oral surgeon who could remove them, I could be facing a painful experience when the teeth begin to break the surface and push on my other teeth (as they were threatening to do).  He told me to begin looking for an oral surgeon who could remove my wisdom teeth

I first began by asking my friends and family for recommendations.  Many of them had already had their wisdom teeth removed, so they knew of reliable oral surgeons that I could contact. After many recommendations and several internet searches, I decided to call Peak OMS.  There were several reasons why I decided to go with this specific dentist rather than another.  One reason was simple- it was very close to my home in Lakewood, Colorado.  I am a busy person, so having to drive halfway across town to visit an oral surgeon just did not seem appealing to me.  Aside from the convenience due to the close proximity of this particular dentists office to my home, they seemed like a great office and came highly recommended by several friends and on websites I read through while browsing the internet.  I made a consult quickly, since my dentist stressed that this was a time sensitive matter.

When I first entered Peak OMS, I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and a very relaxing atmosphere.  This really helped put me at ease, as I’m sure was the desired effect.  People who are coming in for dental surgeries I’m sure will appreciate the soothing and relaxing atmosphere. I already knew that I would like this place! After meeting with the dentist, I felt confident in my choice.  He walked me through the whole procedure, gave me detailed instructions on what to do before and after the surgery, and overall made me feel like I was in really good hands.  They day of my surgery, I was not at all nervous, since I knew exactly what to expect.  The people at Peak OMS did a great job and made me feel relaxed and confident every step of the way.  I would highly recommend them for wisdom teeth extraction or any of your other dental needs.

Getting the Best PR Firm

While I was still a student in graduate school I worked at a restaurant in the evenings. A good portion of my coworkers were also in school and serving tables at night. Restaurant hours are great for students who have classes during the day but still need to make a living at night. A fellow server was always telling me about her classes in marketing and accounting that sounded pretty intriguing. I was a physical science student, so the strategies that were implemented with things like social media marketing and web page development sounded like a different language. I was used to pipetting liquids in vials in sterile environments. Being near a professional kitchen and seeing the chefs work actually reminded me a lot of a science lab. But anyway, I listened to my friend talk about her homework assignments and her potential internships and I started to feel like I was out of touch with my own modern marketing

If you are exposed to any sort of media than you constantly hear those buzzwords involving the hustle and bustle of business, like web design, social marketing, customer development, media strategies, and all sorts of other combinations of those words that I cannot completely define. I have a good idea about what web development and design is since I have seen the internet once or twice before. I guess I just never fully understand that today entire careers are focused on these marketing and business strategies. If I were to really think about how I come to find new businesses I would have realized the importance of this trade a long time ago.

Each time I am seeking a business to provide a service or to sell me something that I need, I first search online. I place a lot of emphasis on a business’ webpage in order to determine is merit and reputation. If they have a great website, I assume that they care about what their customers think, and also that they have been successful enough so far to hire a great web development team. Clean and modern web pages that offer lots of information about the business pull me in immediately. If I come across a web page that has link errors, no aesthetics, or doesn’t provide the information about their products or services that I am looking for, I discredit the business in my mind and keep searching.

Now that we have both graduated and moved on to our respective careers, my former coworker has happily been placed into a position with an online marketing firm that she absolutely loves. She is gaining experience quickly in social media marketing and web page promotion, design, and development. Each time I do a google search for something new I think of her and what hand she had in placing certain businesses on the top of my search list. She provides a lot to her clients like online tracking tools to check their marketing progress, as well as added video production and branding to those who request it.

Learning all about new modular buildings

It is really interesting that you can now reside or work in a modular building. We had never really considered this option before when we were working toward building our new spaces as we needed them. But there are several companies out there now that do a great modular building. United Partition is one that we have recently learned about that has helped us all to conceptualize what it looks like to erect and work in a modular space. They are really not that much different than building a new building when it comes to the feel of the space. But you no longer need to wait for the construction or take as long as necessary for all the inspections along the way. Deciding to go with a modular building option is actually getting the attention of a lot of different businesses right now that are looking for that kind of space that is quick and easy to put together and get ready for employees, and also cheap for the square footage that you get. MODULAR BUILDINGSThere are some climates that are better than others for sure when it comes to this type of space, but every obstacle that has to do with the weather can be overcome if you just plan correctly for the type of environment that you will be building in. It doesn’t take much to look ahead and see that you may need extra insulation when it comes to those thinner walls if you are in a very northern climate. And if you are putting up some modular office space in a tropical area, then some extra air circulation and air conditioning would be a good idea.

These are all issues that can be worked out when you work with a company to put together the modular spaces for you. They know of the benefits and the drawbacks, and they are already prepared to have those conversations about the way that the building will be put together. A lot can be changed and determined by the location of the windows and the air vents. These can be put anywhere, in any wall that is built, and so you really use them when you are laying out the space and how it will sit and where it will sit. The direction of the windows will do a lot of opening up the space or helping to keep it warm or cool, depending on the need. But one of the best things about the modular office space is that if it is no longer needed, then it can easily be dismantled and removed. There is no reason to worry about the on going cost of the building, if the company moves or the number in the work force changes, these types of buildings and work spaces are much easier to dismantle and remove than a traditional style building. They are meant to be useful, and not to be around permanently forever. When they are no longer useful, the space can be used for something else.

A great selection of office chairs and cubicles

office furniture

Here is the story of how I got our boss to buy all new office furniture equipment. It sounds like something that was made up or a seeing you would see in a comedy but this strategy really worked. First, you have to plant the seeds in his mind that people aren’t happy with the current furniture they use. Site stories of aching backs, creaky chairs, file drawers that don’t open properly, what have you. With the seeds of doubt now planted you can begin to do what is always recommended in an office setting which is to offer solutions to any problem you recognize. Instead of just coming to your boss and saying there’s a problem with the furniture, you should say there is a problem with the furniture and I think I might have a solution.

In that line of thinking I went on to the website for 180 Office Solutions and ordered a catalog. I had it sent to my bosses office with his name on it because I knew that he would be intrigued enough by this to give it a look. Do you brochure showed pictures of smiling faces and people sitting at gorgeous desks inside brand-new and stunningly beautiful cubicles. There are sections in the catalog to talk about noise reduction and how it is much easier to retain a workforce that is happy in the place they come to each day. All in all it looked like a very convincing series of pictures and testimonials and it eventually worked on my boss. It wasn’t even two weeks later that he called a meeting and informed us that the entire office would be getting a makeover. You wouldn’t believe it but this caused everyone in the office to erupt in applause. He showed us a few images on the 180 office Solutions website of the desks and noise reducing dampers we would be getting. Additionally, each desk would have a new monitor stand that made it appear as if the computer monitor was floating. This was designed to give you more surface area space to do your work, the requester has been put in place several of the ladies here in the office
Everything I’ve read about how new office furniture can upgrade the morale in the workplace is completely true. I can’t recommend enough that you or your boss should check out 180 office solutions. Here is a link to their website if you are interested in wasting some time at work. They have a wide variety of cubicles, desks, monitor stands, storage solutions and equipment for all types of industries. If your conventional approach to convince your boss doesn’t work then used the above mentioned method and maybe you can be subversive about it. Either way, start by checking out their selection and presenting your boss with a solution to your office equipment problem. New office furniture can make a world of difference! I am writing this at my comfortable desk chair with this zero gravity inspired chair and I’ve never felt better.

The amiable to have it properly resolved quickly can help with further problems or even health problems from the manufacturing process.water damage repair Water damage can be easy to find or sometimes it can go on for long periods of time before anybody notices. I myself found myself in this kind of a situation when we noticed a small spot on the floor just outside of our laundry room. We did not think that it was very extensive because the spot on the floor that was wet was only about the size of a dollar bill. We decided to take a look to see what caused the problem as it was a wet spot for several days in a row and we couldn’t figure out why.

At first we thought that maybe someone had spilled something but when it didn’t go away we realize that there was a problem. Before long we noticed that there was other damage behind the washing machine that has caused all the damage.

Surprisingly we realize that when they started looking into it and where it had gone and it had been saturating the floor underneath the tile and had been going on for some time. We had gone a long time without even noticing until we saw a spot on the floor and realize that there was more of an issue than originally thought. After having to rip out the entire floor and many other areas around it including the bathroom and hallway had to be taken up as well.

By being able to have these spots removed right away were able to avoid any further problems. Because it seems that there had been an issue for some time they make sure to check everything and ensure that the home is safe. They were able to give me on the schedule quickly in a timely manner to be able to preserve the conditions from spreading any further.

Getting a quick response to your water damage while was being key in any water damage restoration. Waiting can cause I’m necessary harm to your home.

Be a Jet Pilot. It’s Not just a Childhood Dream.

Flight Training: Become a Pilot

Flight Training: How to be a real pilot!

Growing up and becoming a robot, a princess, a space alien . . . these are all common childhood dreams that we watch disappear as we experience the world.  However, there are some childhood aspirations that can become realities, and the dream of being a jet pilot is one of them.  The path of a career aviator is one beset with hard work and a commitment to excellence.  You cannot expect to fly commercial airliners without a great deal of knowledge and experience to help ensure the safety of the passengers and crew.  One would not be able to fly a fighter jet without having been through the proper flight training for the job, either.  Aviation schools have multitudes of flight training programs to prepare aspiring pilots for the rigors of life as an aviator.

Thanks to the myriad methods applied in the development of aircraft that have been designed and built over the years, no two planes fly the same.  Learning each aircraft’s unique instrumentation and best flying methods is an academic commitment unto itself.  To be properly certified to fly a variety of aircraft requires a pilot to earn a new aircraft type rating for any plane they would like to fly.  Type ratings are the equivalent of licenses or certifications that are required to fly a particular aircraft.  Many pilots choose to earn new aircraft type ratings to increase their opportunity to fly commercial airliners.  Most major airlines will pay for you to earn type ratings for the aircraft in their fleet, provided you continue to fly for them.

In any career, it is important to stay current with the latest developments in your field.  As a pilot, earning new type ratings is just one way of proving your qualifications on the newest aircraft in the sky.  Any airline that is looking to hire pilots will look more favorably upon a pilot who has earned a number of type ratings to accompany their hands-on flight training.  Experience is valuable, but the certifications to back that experience are the only true proof of that experience until you are in the sky.   Airlines know that all pilots are not created equal, and they are ready to do the work to seperate the good pilots from the great ones.  You do not need to be one of the Wright Brothers, but any pilot who spends the time in flight training to earn type ratings for new aircraft is clearly taking the initiative to expand their horizons.

Dreams can be realities, little boys and girls can be pilots, movie stars, firefighters and more.  Aviation is not a simple dream, and understanding aircraft is a lifelong academic undertaking that is exceptionally reqarding for those who choose to pursue it.  On a more facetious note, a pilot with a catalog of type ratings is probably one of the best people to have around in a zombie apocalypse situation.  Experience counts for any career pilot, and pursuing the rigorous goal of earning new aircraft type ratings is a surefire way to grow your skills as a pilot and increase your chances of being hired by a major airline.  I hear working for the big airlines is kind of nice once you have paid your dues.
