Goldmine

Minecraft is a video game in which players create and break apart various kinds of blocks in three-dimensional worlds. The game’s two main modes are Survival and Creative. In Survival, players must find their own building supplies and food. They also interact with blocklike mobs, or moving creatures. (Creepers and zombies are some of the dangerous ones.) In Creative, players are given supplies and do not have to eat to survive. They also can break all kinds of blocks immediately.

The creative and building aspects of Minecraft allow players to build constructions out of textured cubes in a 3D procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, gathering resources, crafting, and combat. Multiple gameplay modes

Increase the Value of Your Home

When remodeling it is good to ask, "is this going to increase the value of the home?" No one wants to put the value of their home, in any danger...especially when there is potential for resale. On a list of remodeling projects that bring a high return on investment (ROI), kitchens come in near the top.
 

Kitchen remodels are so popular, because it is usually the heart of the home. Newer model homes incorporate the kitchen and living space with one as an extension of the other. Kitchen nooks with tables and overhang counters with enough space to eat a meal are popular as new kitchen formats bring the cook back into the party. Instead of being relegated to another part of the house and separated by a wall, the cook

Don't Be the Victim

It's next to impossible to get through the home-buying experience completely unmarked. Maybe you accidentally buy a house with mold in the basement or you purchase a condo across the street from what will soon be a multi-year redevelopment project. Been through a bad experience? Don't beat yourself up. No matter how much you prepare, buying real estate can be an intense and messy experience.

But the right preparation can also save you time, money and heartache. According to a nationwide survey by the real estate firm Redfin, as many as a quarter of homeowners wish they had never purchased their place at all. That is hard to swallow.

 In Remembrance

According to New York AP -  A solemn reading of the names. Moments of silence to mark the precise times of tragedy. Stifled sobs of those still mourning. As the nation pauses Thursday to mark the thirteenth anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack, little about the annual ceremony at ground zero has changed. But so much around it has.

For the first time, the National September 11 Museum — which includes sorrowful artifacts and graphic photos of the attacks — will be open on the anniversary. Fences around the memorial plaza have come down, integrating the sacred site more fully with the streets of Manhattan while completely opening it up to the public.

A new mayor is in office, Bill de Blasio, one far less linked to the

It Doesn't have to be a Nightmare


You want to fix up your home? But home remodeling can sometimes a nightmare if you don't hire the right person for the job.  According to US News, Dave Binkowski recently discovered this hard lesson. He had two of his bathrooms remodeled for $25,000, and while he was pleased with the result, he wasn't happy with the contractors he hired. "They ran off to the next job, leaving messes behind, dumping materials on our property," Binkowski says, referring to concrete and grout left in his yard and in the woods next to his house in the New York City area. Worse, Binkowski had to complete some tasks himself, including repairing drywall and tightening loose bathroom fixtures.

So what should you do if you have a bad

Living in Peace

Having a peaceful home is about more than style. It’s about creating a place where each object has a function, whether for its beauty, utility or both. Here are 10 ways to bring a peaceful, balanced feeling to your home.

1. Clear surfaces daily. Clutter is a distraction. When you see a stack of papers, a tangle of jewelry or a pile of laundry, some small part of your mind is at work thinking about dealing with them. If you want a calmer experience at home, a good way to begin is by making it routine to clear all the surfaces in your house daily. When your eye can skim across clean, clear surfaces throughout your home, it also becomes easier to stay focused on the present moment

2. Declutter and get organized. It’s one…
