Here are some low cost home security tactics for making your home a safer place. 1. Neighbors Your neighbors...

The new recommendation comes at the end of a week when the U.S. saw its deadliest day of the pandemic so far, with more than 3,100 lives lost on Thursday alone.

    New York City’s top doctor Tuesday warned that those vulnerable to COVID-19, as well as their household members and caregivers, should stay in when possible — and wear masks “at all times.” “Effective immediately, the City’s Health Commissioner is advising older adults and people with underlying health conditions who are at an increased risk of severe COVID-related illness to limit activities outside the home, except leaving home to travel to work or school, or for essential purposes including medical care, grocery shopping or pharmacy necessities,” the de Blasio administration said in a statement.

    ELK CITY, Okla. - The Elk City Police Department is investigating a deadly home invasion. Police said the victim told investigators two men broke into his bedroom. That's when investigators said the homeowner then opened fire on both, killing one of the would-be thieves. “I saw five or six police cars, they had all alleys blocked off,” said Tristian Wooten, Elk City resident. “Cones had the area shut off.” People living nearby said they woke up and noticed police all over their neighborhood Saturday morning. “They blocked off all in front of the tennis courts there to the south and...

    A New Jersey high school student claims two teachers told him to remove a flag supporting President Donald Trump from his wall at home, calling the flag “unacceptable,” ABC 13 reported.  Anthony Ribeiro, a 17-year-old student at Toms River High School North in Toms River, New Jersey, wants an apology from the school after two teachers told him to remove the flag during remote classes, according to ABC 13.“He said, ‘If you’re not gonna take it down, it’s unacceptable, and I’m gonna have to ask you to leave the class for today.’ At that point, I waved goodbye, and I was out of...

    Microsoft is allowing its employees to work from home permanently. While the vast majority of Microsoft employees are still working from home during the ongoing pandemic, the software maker has unveiled “hybrid workplace” guidance internally to allow for far greater flexibility once US offices eventually reopen. The Verge has received Microsoft’s internal guidance, and it outlines the company’s flexible working plans for the future. Microsoft will now allow employees to work from home freely for less than 50 percent of their working week, or for managers to approve permanent remote work. While most employees will be able to easily take...

    The six-county region’s median price reached $600,000 in August, up 12.1% from a year earlier, according to data released Wednesday by DQNews. That was the largest percentage increase since 2014 and the third consecutive month during which prices set a new all-time high. Sales rose 2.4% from a year earlier. The price leap may seem unlikely amid double-digit unemployment, but analysts say the trend reflects the uneven effect of the coronavirus and its economic fallout. Compared with low-wage workers, people who tend to have the financial ability to buy homes have been less likely to lose their jobs, and in...

This was suggested to me by a sergeant major with the county sheriff's office. He said to install a camera because their experience was its presence would alter this person's behavior...

    Let’s face it, if there’s one thing that 2020 has made us re-evaluate, it’s where we are living. We saw states that we thought stood for freedom shut down, state governors sell out their residents and become total dictators, businesses forced to close, the muzzle replace several state flags, freedoms become restricted or altogether disappear, and legislators on a power trip use our inability to gather to their advantage — pushing through legislation that would otherwise never have passed. Add to that the riots, “new normal,” ridiculous changes to our educational system, cancel culture, and covert infringements upon our second...
  • Most and Least Affordable Places to Buy a Home

    We found that the most affordable housing markets in America were uniformly located in the South and Midwest. The most affordable place we looked at in America was Youngstown, Ohio where the median household income in one year is more than the typical purchase price of a home. On the other hand, almost all the least affordable places to buy a home were in California. Of all the markets we examined, Newport Beach was the least affordable market in the country.

    So much has been said or written about whether or not school children should be returning to on-site classes during the fall. Many voices on the right say that children's propensity for contracting the virus and having any lingering ill-effects is rather small. Voices on the left, well, who can be sure what they're saying? Some have health concerns, but most seem to favor anything that will disrupt the nation and potentially cause harm to the Trump Administration.

    An elderly gentleman called today to get an appointment to see a professional. Then, he called back and cancelled, saying they were afraid of going to downtown because of the violence. That is a huge factor that the media nor anyone else I know of is covering. Suddenly, all kinds of professionals (doctors, lawyers, accountants, opthamologists, you name it) are losing a large number of appointments due to the FEAR the Democrats, media and their foot soldiers Burn Loot Murder bunch are bringing to the cities. This has to be STOPPED in its tracks.
