While the road to selling your home can be long, increasing the value of your home is easier than you think. We all know the obvious home upgrades that add value to a house, such as remodeling kitchens and bathrooms to adding more square footage to a house. There are many other ways to add value to your home as well, such as protecting the structure and making the home more energy efficient. Here are a few overlooked quick tips that will add value to your home:

  1. Paint Everything – Painting is a cost-effective and simple way to improve the value of your home. Newly painted walls look clean and updated, and therefore appeal to potential buyers. When selecting paint for your walls, select colors that are neutral, as they’ll appeal to the greatest number of people.

  3. Prioritize your foundation- This should go without saying but it’s often a step that homeowners overlook. Overtime, foundations are susceptible to damage through frequent water expose.

  4. Amp up curb appeal- Curb appeal is important when selling a home. Even if you aren’t planning on selling your house today, it’s simple to plan for the future. Landscaping a home can provide additional shade to the

Fortunebuilders students know that home is the place where family gathers, where you spend time with the people in your life that are closest to you. Home is where you spend some of your best, and worst times. And yet, as long as the family is together, everything seems to work out.

Whether it be a family gathering, or a simple family dinner on the couch watching a movie, the home becomes the place where bonding between people is done. Sharing a home with another person can bring you close on a level much deeper than with a person you have never lived with before. Living with someone allows you to see them at their best, and at their worst, while at the same time allowing them to see the same thing in you.

Home is a place where people build and grow together. Whether it be physically building and growing, growing in age and building up accomplishments, or building and growing emotionally, maturing and building closer bonds with those in the home.

In a home, everyone has a role. Whether it be a mother – – the caretaker of the children and the emotional support, the father – – the one who sets the rules and puts the “bread on the table”, or the children – – those who fight, love, bond and grow up and mature together, everyone has a role in a family, and everyone has a role in a functional home.

There are no cut and dry versions of what a home can look like. A home can be a mother, father, and a few children, or it can be a more nontraditional form of a home, including aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, grandchildren, and other extended family.

No matter who resides in the home, it is the aspect of “home”, and the feelings of closeness and safety in it that matter. With all of these aspects together, a home can be run harmoniously. Whether with a mother and father, or grandpa and grandma and a few grandchildren, a happy home can be made and maintained …

A Federal Drug Administration subcommittee has approved the use of a drug to help relieve the problem of hypoactive sexual disorder in women. The drug called ADDYI was developed to restore sexual desire in women who have not yet reached menopause. Known within the medical community as HSDD, it is the most commonly reported form of sexual dysfunction in women and has been for the last 40 years. According to the drug’s manufacturer Sprout Pharmaceuticals, HSDD affects roughly one in three women, with one in ten reporting that their desire for sexual intimacy is very distressing. Once final approval is granted by the FDA, ADDYI will be the only drug on the market to address this disorder.

ADDYI is a non-hormonal drug that was tested in over 11,000 women making it one of the most studied and well-researched drugs coming to market. It acts on the patient by elevating the neurotransmitters dopamine and norepinephrine while reducing the levels of serotonin in the pre-frontal cortex of the brain. Dopamine and norepinephrine both act to enhance sexual desire and pleasure while serotonin acts to depress it. Studies showed that side effects of the drug were generally minor consisting mostly of nausea, dizziness and sleepiness.

The studies were conducted in double-blind tests over a 24-week period. In a double-blind study, neither the patient nor the administering physician knows whether the patient is receiving the actual drug or a placebo. Test subjects were screened and were selected to be in long term relationships for 10 years, and had HSDD for half of that time on average (4-5 years). Self-reporting from the patients showed that some experienced increased sexual desire in as early as four weeks, and by six months up to 60% reported improvement.

While the full FDA has not acted on the drug’s application, the recommendation by the sub-committee is a positive sign for ultimate approval. If it is approved it will be the first drug on the market that achieves the goals of enhancing women’s sexual response, the frequency for the desire of sex, and reducing the distress for the loss …

In Wilmington North Carolina, and across the United States the tradition of Tooth Fairies actually being real is a simple one. A lost tooth brings the Tooth Fairy, who takes the tooth and leaves behind a small gift or money. England, Denmark, and Australia share this custom. In France, the tooth fairy is actually a mouse! In some countries, leaving behind money or a small gift is not the custom. In Greece, the child throws his tooth on the roof for good luck and the hope for a strong tooth. In India, the tooth is also thrown on the roof in hopes that a sparrow will come and bring a new tooth. In Russia, the children place their lost tooth in a mouse hole in hopes the mouse will bring a strong new tooth.

The tradition of the tooth mouse is the same in Spain, Mexico, Peru, Chili and other countries such as Argentina and Columbia. The tooth mouse arrives and leaves a small gift. In China, children throw their lower teeth on the roof, and the upper teeth on the floor. They believe that this will bring them strong, straight teeth.

The tooth fairy tradition has its roots in European Folklore. In the middle ages, people believed that if a witch stole a child’s tooth, the witch would have power over the child for life. For this reason, the tooth was often buried in a field or garden to prevent any witch from taking it. As towns and villages grew larger and more populated, this became difficult. The tooth was then often “buried” in a flower pot. Over time, this became the tradition of “burying” the tooth under pillows. It was also the custom for the child to throw the lost tooth into the fire. This would prevent the child from experiencing hardship in the after-life. They believed that if the tooth was not thrown to the fire, they would spend eternity searching for the lost tooth.

In ancient times, some cultures believed that children’s teeth brought good luck on the battlefield. Warriors would wear strings of baby …

In light of recent policy making and foam bans throughout the country, some are hoping for Baltimore to follow in their footsteps. Yet other officials are saying that an anti-littering campaign will be more effective because the root of the issue lies at the lack of effort into recycling polystyrene. Below are some facts and figures to help voters make informed decisions about a proposed future Baltimore foam ban:

Foam is not harmful to the environment. In fact, it is 100% recyclable! Though it’s not available for curbside recycling yet, there is a Citizens Convenience Center on Sisson Street where residents can drop off their recyclables.

Foam ends up in the harbor because of littering. Many people simply don’t throw away or recycle their garbage, leading to a disturbing amount of trash floating atop the Inner Harbor. This is why City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young is more in favor of anti-littering advocacy. “Polystyrene isn’t the only thing in the water,” he told the Baltimore Sun. He continues saying that the city “..cannot ban [its] way out of bad habits,” and should instead, change its habits for the better.

Foam is effective. The reason why so many businesses use foam is because of how well it works, from its insulation properties to its cost to the business. Some businesses have found that if they switch to a paper cup, people will double up cups in order to further insulate their coffee.

In addition, paper cups take up almost twice the amount of space in landfills than polystyrene ones. This doubles the amount of waste that we were initially trying to reduce. Additionally, foam is sanitary and inexpensive so that businesses can focus more on the quality of their products than the packaging costs burdening their potential.…
