Posted by Emanuele on Mar 24, 2016.

For many of us it is an annual ritual. For others it is a chore that requires a significant rally. However you approach it, spring cleaning is, well, a rite of Spring. Around here we need a good playlist to make the chores cheerier. And this year, we’re recommending a great list of time-proven Reggae classics to get you moving. Open the windows. Crank up the tunes.

Daylight Saving Time Facts

Posted by Emanuele on Mar 17, 2016.

  Did you know that the origins of Daylight Saving time were during a WWI initiative to save energy? At least according to some sources, the scarcity of power during this war fueled a movement. And we all bought into it. The genius of it is that when we add an hour of daylight to our days over half the year, we burn less fuel to heat and light up our homes during the night. Department of Energy studies suggest a 0.03 percent drop in annual household energy usage thanks to daylight saving. Multiply that times a couple of hundred million people and you’ve saved enough energy to power..

Posted by Jeff on Jan 28, 2016.

If you're going to be smart about staying toasty and warm you'll want to brush up on a little thermodynamic theory, right?

If you don’t have your boots on you get cold fast. "Convection is the transfer of heat between a mass (such as your body) and a moving fluid or gas (such as an icy wind that whips around every square inch of you)." Knowing how these chillers chill you helps you leverage your ..


How to Handle a Meltdown

Posted by Jeff on Mar 10, 2016.

Whether you love snow, or just learn to deal with it, there comes a time when it will melt, and this will cause a mess. This mess will often result in mud, run-off, and mystery sediment. You need to be prepared to handle the meltdown with a few quick tips. First, don’t stash that snow shovel in the garage just yet. The easiest way to clear things up is to get it while it’s still in a semi-frozen state. That’s the easy part. Next, as the weather warms up the snow starts to melt and the water starts to become a nuisance. Make sure it doesn’t creep into your home and cause water damage..
