Real estate in general has made a modest recovery since the housing fiasco in 2008. Residential housing has also enjoyed some appreciation in certain areas of the country. Your home is one of your largest assets, perhaps the largest, and it needs to be fully protected. The contents of a typical home: furniture, appliances, clothing, family heirlooms, and other movable personal belongings, represents a substantial additional investment. The unprotected loss (or partial loss) of a home and its contents to theft, fire, windstorm, or some other disaster, could be financially devastating. Many mortgage lenders require homeowners insurance, to protect the dwelling, as a condition of granting the mortgage. Additionally, everyone faces the risk of personal liability. For example, a visitor to the residence could slip and fall. Such accidents can result in court decisions awarding large sums to the injured party for medical expenses, and “pain and suffering.” In different parts of the country, there are exclusions that need to be considered like earth movement, water damage, flood damage, mold exclusion, war, nuclear hazard, neglect and intentional loss. You may need to buy supplemental coverage for certain events if it’s available. Home ownership is part of our culture. It’s also part of Read more…
Most traditional high schools require some form of physical education class or credit whether it is through a P.E class that does a variety of sports and exercises or if a student is enrolled in some form of sport or after school activity. Students at the Alternative Learning Center in Dubuque, however, are encouraged to fulfill their P.E. requirements by helping out those in the community. Juniors and Seniors at the Alternative Learning Center are able to do yard work and help out seniors or other disabled members of the community that can’t do the work themselves. The program was launched by teacher Tim Hitzler who supervises the volunteer students’ yard work. Tim told KWWL, “The students and I and other students come out and help them. Could be raking leaves, pulling weeds, cutting grass, cleaning gutters, just depends on what they need. The students aren’t typically too excited at the beginning, but once they get involved and start doing the yard work, they become more motivated,” he added. “What they really like is … helping people. They really like giving back to people and meeting the person.” Not only is this a great way to still get a form Read more…

Timothy McCormack who was solo-flying a helicopter in New York crashed Monday on the rooftop of a 51 story building at 787 Seventh Avenue in New York City. The crash and deadly fire killed McCormack and destroyed the helicopter in its entirety. Paul Dudley, manager of Linden Airport where the helicopter was based stated, “I think he tried to land on the building to save the people on the ground, because if he went to the ground it would have been carnage.” McCormack was no stranger to flying helicopters and had over 15 years of experience, he received his commercial pilot certificate in 2004. “He is a highly experienced, highly trained commercial helicopter pilot,” Dudley said. “He’s been flying around the New York area and different places for many, many years.” The crash and the minutes leading up to the crash are still a mystery and an investigation is underway.
An 8 year old boy quickly found himself drifting out to see on an inflatable unicorn when rescuers arrived to save the day. The 8 year old was visiting Oak Island North Carolina from Ohio when all of a sudden he was nearly 1/2 mile out to sea and his parents realized they couldn’t get to him. Oak Island Water Rescue Chief Tony Young told WWAY TV that “the float was right there, in easy reach, and then just in the blink of an eye, it was beyond the breakers and too far for them to reach.” The parents immediately called 911 when they realized they couldn’t rescue their son and they told him to stay on the float. The Oak Island Water Rescue Team is a volunteer group and they do it because they care. “Handing that little kid back to his mom after we brought him in from way out in the ocean on that float was payment enough for all of us. “I’m sure I speak for the whole team when it comes to that.” Young told WWAY TV
BMW is having to recall more than 5,000 compact cars that have knee airbag models for both the driver and passenger. The recall is affecting the following models: – 2019-2020 2 Series: 230i and 230i xDrive coupe and convertible, M240i and M240i coupe and convertible, M2 Competition. – 2019 3 Series: 330i xDrive Sportswagon. – 2019-2020 4 Series: 430i and 430i xDrive coupe and convertible, 440i and 440i xDrive coupe and convertible, M4 coupe and convertible – 2020 4 Series Grand Coupe: 430i and 430i xDrive, 440i and 440i xDrive The modules which were supplied by Joyson Safety Systems may have airbags that were not properly folded in the airbag housing resulting in the airbags becoming damaged during inflation which can then lead to preventing the full safety benefit of the airbag itself during deployment. The fix is pretty easy with dealership technicians having to replace one or both knee airbag models with correctly folded parts. Owners of models affected should receive mail notifications by mid July.

Davey Johnson took a motorcycle for a test drive last week in the Sierra Nevadas and has been missing since. Northern California authorities are searching for the Sacramento automotive writer who has not been seen since his test drive. Authorities found the black Honda CB100R along with his helmet and gloves shortly after midnight at a rest stop on Saturday but no sign of Johnson himself. The last communication anyone has had with Davey Johnson was his girlfriend who heard from him around 2 AM on Wednesday. Jaclyn Trop, his girlfriend said, “I just really hope he’s alive, because thinking about the alternative yesterday was … I don’t even have words for it. I was completely gutted, and I would still feel that way if they hadn’t found the bike.” The search continued onto Mammoth in California then on to Sonora Pass and the search is still ongoing.
Jaguar Land Rover, owned by Tata Motors (NYSE: TTM) is having to recall some of its electric I-Pace vehicles due to problems involving the regenerative braking system. The I-Pace which starts at $69,850 has a regenerative braking system that helps recharge the car’s electric battery when the driver presses the brake peddle to come to a stop. The issue, which could be a failing electrical regenerative braking system could result in an increased delay in declaration after pressing the brakes, which could ultimately lead to the driver failing to stop in time. Jaguar will begin notifying I-Pace owners that are affected on July 1 and the fix will involve a software update to reduce the braking delay. The recall covers vehicles produced in the 2019 and 2020 model years which totals to 3,083 vehicles.
