NAR’s 2019 Remodeling Impact Report: DIY revealed that millennials are more likely to undertake a ‘do it yourself’ (DIY) remodel than hire a professional. Homeowners, especially cash-strapped millennials are the most likely of any generation to take on a DIY project. The results are based off examining the differences between remodeling when hiring a professional compared to homeowners who pursue “do it yourself” projects. It also makes a clear differentiation of projects that were undertaken to benefit the consumers’ homes and those that benefit consumers’ pets. In the report’s “Joy Score”, homeowners who did projects themselves recorded a score of 9.9 compared to a score of 9.6 for projects completed by professionals. They are also said to have expressed a greater sense of accomplishment with a finished project, wherein 97 percent of respondents indicated a major or minor sense of accomplishment, compared to 93 percent of those who hired a professional. Increasing functionality and/or livability of their homes was cited as the primary reason by homeowners for undertaking a project (35 percent for DIYers and 41 percent for those hiring a professional). Increasing the home’s beauty and aesthetics (19 percent and 18 percent, respectively) and adding durable and long lasting materials and appliances (15 percent and 18 percent), were the other reasons stated by respondents. “One of the pleasures of homeownership is the ability to take on projects to customize a house that truly makes it your own. With plenty of owners taking on renovation projects as New Year’s resolutions, this report is a great place to search for projects others have undertaken successfully,” a John Smaby, a second-generation Realtor from Edina, Minnesota, and broker at Edina Realty. Nearly 73 percent of Generation Y and millennial consumers, over 51 percent of Generation X and 50 percent of younger boomers prefer DIY home projects. Seventy percent of the Silent Generation indicated that they hired a professional to complete their project – the highest of any generation, the report indicated. Interestingly, respondents who undertook pet projects recorded complete satisfaction when they hired a professional, 65 percent compared to 61 percent and recording a Joy Score of 9.3. The DIYer’s reported a Joy Score of 9.4. The report found that 56 percent of consumers are more likely to DIY a project for a pet compared to 47 percent for a general home project.

Nulli had argued that the petitioner was at an advanced stage of pregnancy and was stuck in the United States along with her 18 month old daughter & husband. Thus, any more delay for repatriation would be disastrous on her health.When the matter came up for hearing, the bench was initially inclined to serve a copy on the Solictor General but list it for today but then passed it over.Advocate Nulli had insisted that as the “flight is tomorrow, this order would not serve any purpose”.Apropos this, when the passed over matter was taken up again, the bench observed that it was not inclined to pass any orders but asked the Government to take cognisance of the issue accordingly.The Supreme Court has been taking up evacuation petitions of several stranded Indian Citizens since the lockdown was imposed in India and international cross-border Air travel had been blocked.On May 8, While hearing a plea on behalf of over 250 pregnant Indian women praying for evacuation from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Supreme Court observed that women who are at the final stage of pregnancy (Third Trimester) must be given top priority for purposes of repatriation.The Centre had issued Standard Operating Protocols on May 6 for evacuation of Indian Citizens stranded Abroad amid the pandemic.Termed the “Vande Bharat Mission”, the evacuation has been started at the behest of Government. As on date, stranded Indians from various countries have been brought back.Next Story
Bridgeton Police Department(BRIDGETON, N.J.) — Monday marks one week since 5-year-old Dulce Maria Alavez suddenly vanished at a New Jersey park, prompting an Amber Alert and a massive manhunt as her devastated family waits for answers.Dulce was last seen just before 5 p.m. EST on Monday, Sept. 16, while playing at the Bridgeton City Park behind Bridgeton High School.It’s possible the 5-year-old left the park with an unknown man and was lured into a van or SUV, authorities said.“At home, there is an emptiness since she hasn’t come back,” her uncle, Abad Perez Alavez, said at a vigil Sunday night, according to ABC Philadelphia station WPVI.“She’s only an innocent child, who likes to have fun and play games,” he said. “We don’t [know] why she’s disappeared.”Anyone who was near the Bridgeton City Park between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. EST on Sept. 16 is asked to check their phones to see if they took photos or videos during that time, Cumberland County Prosecutor Jennifer Webb-McRae said Monday.The images may seem unimportant but could be a “valuable piece of the puzzle in helping us bring Dulce home,” the prosecutor said.Dulce’s grandmother said Thursday in a statement that was translated to English: “Please if you have any information help us find my granddaughter. Do not be afraid of the police. We have not been able to eat or sleep. You can’t image what we are going through. We are very sad. Please help our family. I beg of you.”Dulce was last seen wearing a yellow shirt with a koala bear on the front and black and white pants with butterflies and flowers on them.The person who may have left the park with Dulce is described as “a light-skinned, possibly Hispanic” man who is “approximately 5’6″ to 5’8″ with a thin build, no facial hair and acne on his face,” according to the FBI.He might have been driving a red van or SUV, according to the FBI.Bridgeton is about 45 miles south of Philadelphia.A reward has reached $35,000.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailJACKSONVILLE, Fla.-Per numerous reports, including the confirmation of his agent, Evan Brennan, former Richfield High and Southern Utah football star, defensive lineman Robert Torgerson, has found a home in the NFL Monday.Brennan confirmed that Torgerson has been signed to an undrafted rookie free agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars and will attend mini-camp for the AFC runners-up in 2017, June 12-14. This report was also verified by Brian McLaughlin of HERO Sports, which specializes in FCS reporting and scouting, and First Coast News Jaguars beat writer Mike Kaye.Torgerson, despite not participating at the NFL Scouting combine, excelled at the Thunderbirds’ Pro Day on March 27 at Desert Hills High School in St. George.This workout saw Torgerson put up comparable numbers to many defensive linemen who participated at the combine.In any event, Torgerson will have a chance to compete for a spot on one of the strongest, if not the strongest defensive lines in the NFL as Jacksonville features stars such as defensive ends Calais Campbell and Yannick Ngakoue.HERO Sports confirms in 2018, Torgerson amassed 15 tackles (8 assists and 7 solo tackles) and 1 sack on the 2017 season for the 9-3 Thunderbirds.
