Yea or Nay: Would You Want to Live in a House with No Conventional Storeys, But 16 Micro-Levels?

Dezeen has been following the work of Japanese architect Yo Shimada, and his penchant for multi-level interior construction, for quite some time. Shimada's Kobe-based firm, Tato Architects, made a splash in 2013 with their House in Itami, which features an interior composed of multiple differing-height platforms, often using furniture to double as stairs between levels, like this:House in Itami House in Itami Their subsequent House in Miyamoto took the concept even further, essentially going ope...

The best online savings accounts of 2020

Finding the right savings account can get you an extra $200 for free this year. Depending on your balance, it could make you a lot more money. Let’s say you have $10,000 to put into an online savings account. How much would that turn into at a big bank savings account? Most big banks have an APY (annual percentage yield) of 0.15% or less. After a year, your account would be worth $10,015. Not much of a gain there. I love getting money for nothing, but even I have a hard time getting excited over...

Family Of Pardoned Construction Exec Donated Over 200K To Trump’s Reelection Campaign

One of President Donald Trump’s pardons apparently came with a hefty price tag. On Tuesday, the White House announced a slew of pardons and commutations for various white-collar criminals, including Paul Pogue, the founder of Pogue Construction, who pleaded guilty in 2010 for cheating the government out of over $473,000 in taxes and was sentenced to three years of probation. Pogue made “significant charitable contributions,” according to the White House’s glowing praise of the now-pardoned fe...

Ring has partnered with hundreds of police departments nationwide, providing tools for police to request footage from Ring cameras in the area of suspected crimes.

Where Things Stand: Barr’s Saving Face

Three prominent news outlets reported this morning, citing unnamed administration officials, that the attorney general is mulling resigning over President Trump’s tweets about the Roger Stone case. The Justice Department outright denied these claims, but it’s not the first time Barr has been publicly distanced from the President — whether by his own volition or not — since his department suddenly reversed its sentencing recommendation for Stone just hours after Trump tweeted criticism of the ...

The Hill Goes Easy On John Solomon In Review Of Ukraine Disinfo Columns

The Hill held back from squarely addressing the actions of its former columnist John Solomon in a long-awaited review released Wednesday morning, declining to address factual inaccuracies in Solomon’s 2019 series on Ukraine. Instead, the D.C.-based news website turned its gaze towards an arguably less consequential aspect of the fourteen columns that Solomon published last year: the way the articles blurred the distinction between opinion writing and news writing. The Hill launched a review o...

White House Domestic Policy Chief Calls California ‘Occupied Territory’

(CNN) — A White House aide called California “occupied territory” in a tweet touting President Donald Trump’s visit to the state on Tuesday. “Just landed in California.

My question involves real estate located in the State of: South Carolina We purchased a home(with title insurance) 7 years ago this October.

We are a bit over 2 weeks from closing and the neighbor walks over to me tonight and hands me a survey paper. The new buyer had wanted to do a survey and when I notic...

A museum of women's history is long overdue -- and so are many others

Conservative Group Targets Ohio for Death Penalty Repeal

The “EARN IT” Act Is Another Terrible Proposal to “Reform” Section 230

Another “fix Section 230” bill is coming. This one is called the “Eliminating Abusive and Rampant Neglect of Interactive Technologies Act of 2020” or “EARN IT Act of 2020” and it’s being led by Sens. Graham and Blumenthal. The EARN IT Act is twice as bad as the other Section 230 reform bills because it’s a two-fer: not only would it undermine Section 230, but it could destabilize the decades-old encryption policy wars. As has become typical for Section 230 reform bills, it takes thousands of wo...
