Homebuilders grapple with land shortage, soaring lumber costs

By Alex Veiga | The Associated Press U.S. homebuilders are poised to benefit this spring homebuying season amid strong demand, low mortgage rates and an all-time low inventory of previously occupied homes for sale. But soaring lumber prices and a shortage of construction-ready land could limit their ability to capitalize on the strong housing market trends, analysts say. The price of lumber more than doubled over the last year to an all-time high, reflecting strong demand for new construction an...

How this Redlands professor unlocked the mysteries of ‘Harriet the Spy’ and its author

When the children’s novel “Harriet the Spy” arrived in 1964, Leslie Brody was an 11-year-old on Long Island. That was just a short trip to the Upper East Side neighborhood of the fictional 11-year-old spy and writer Harriet M. Welsch. Yet despite their geographic proximity and shared love of tomato sandwiches on white bread, Brody didn’t discover Harriet and the beloved classic by author and illustrator Louise Fitzhugh until 1988 when the writer’s literary estate hired her to adapt the book for ...

The skin of etymological teeth

Like the previous post, this one owes its origin to a reader’s question. Is English skin related to Greek skēnḗ? Skēnḗ means “a sheltered place; tent; stage; scene,” and it is from scene that all of us know the word. Its origin is obscure (Latin had scēna and scaena), but, in any case, skēnḗ and skin cannot be reduced to the same etymon. Regardless of this fact, the story of skin and some other words, partly synonymous with it, is worthy of attention.It may cause surprise how many words we have ...

the moral minority

The elites in charge of organizations and institutions like to think they take into account the opinions of experts, but as this pandemic has shown, that is often not the case. The pandemic response in many countries is political, not guided by the best public health knowledge. “On any particular issue, people at the bottom can usually claim the most expertise; they know their job best. And when someone at the top has to make a difficult decision, they usually prefer to justify it via reference ...

WHO OR WHAT IS THEGRINT?

According to TheGrint founder Jose Torbay, the purpose of the phone-based application is “to make it easier to carry and maintain a handicap.” I call it a handicap service with benefits. Regardless, it started as most solid entrepreneurial pursuits do: a solution to a problem. It wasn’t the kind of solution that radically changed an industry or turned into a proprietary noun (e.g., Kleenex, ChapStick). But it did result in more than one nasty gram from the USGA. “TheGrint.” Say What? Every c...

President Trump travels to Texas to tour his border wall

By Priscilla Alvarez | CNN President Donald Trump bookended his administration’s focus on immigration with a trip to his signature border wall on the US-Mexico border, a visit on the heels of a deadly riot on Capitol Hill incited by the President as House Democrats prepare a second impeachment vote.
