September 11, 2001 – Let’s Reflect

September 11, 9/11, will be marked around the United States and the world with many moments of silent remembrance of the thousands who died in the Twin Towers and also for the rescue workers who sacrificed their own lives to help rescue survivors.

Ground zero will be one of the places where the families and loved ones of the victims who perished will commemorate the anniversary of the plane attacks. The names of the victims will be solemnly read aloud, and serene, peaceful-sounding music will be played.

The memorial plaza, which is now two years old, will on Wednesday see relatives reciting names of the close to 3,000 people who perished when jets that terrorists hijacked crash into  the Pentagon and the World Trade Center. Also, the names of the people who were killed in 1993 bombing of the trade center will be read.


Wednesday, September 11 (9/11) is expected to be a day spent in  honoring the victims of the terrorist attacks. The victims and the sacrifices they made will be forever a part of the American psyche.

Affordable Care Act

NEWS ANALYSIS: Employers across the U.S. spoke out about the pending proposed Affordable Care Act (ACA) with concerns with it and it seems the government is listening. Now, employers will no longer be required to provide health care coverage to employees starting January 1, 2014, as part of the ACA. Small business owners are praising this postponement.

August 2013: Employer Health Care Mandate Postponed
It was announced that the government has postponed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s (PPAC) mandatory employer and insurer reporting requirements for one year. As a result, the administration also announced that it will waive the imposition of any employer-shared responsibility penalty payments for 2014. This effectively means that employers with more than 50 employees will not be required to provide health insurance to their employees or face a penalty until 2015. The Treasury Department announcement recognized that, for many employers and insurers otherwise subject to these “employer and insurer mandates,” the rules for compliance are just too complex for implementation by 2014.
In its announcement, the administration promised to publish formal guidance shortly that will describe the transition that will be taking place from mandatory 2014 reporting to a voluntary system for 2014. It also expects to publish revised information reporting rules for insurers, self-insuring employers, and other parties that provide health care coverage some time during the summer. The administration is encouraging employers that now provide health insurance to voluntarily implement information reporting under these revised rules in order to test their systems before mandatory reporting comes into force in 2015.
The announcement did not address the individual mandate that goes into effect in 2014 and requires most individuals to obtain health insurance or pay a penalty. Nor does it apparently delay implementation of marketplace exchanges.

Garage Door Repairs

If you are having trouble with your garage door, it may be due to some problem with the springs. Garage door springs do break, and they can be replaced. I won’t try to convince you not to take that approach if you need new springs, but I will strongly suggest that you carefully weigh the risks versus the rewards in this project before deciding to do so.

Out of Balance Springs

The best sign of a well-functioning garage door is that it opens and closes smoothly and quietly. …When it stops working as it should, the problem can be serious. Try operating the garage door manually (pull the cord attached to the arm connecting the rail trolley system to the door). If the door continues to be difficult to operate, the problem could be that the springs are out of balance. In this case, you can be confident that the problem isn’t going to fix itself. And failing to fix it could result in an escalating list of worn and broken parts. Call us asap.

Garage Door Spring Brackets

Garage door springs are attached to brackets on the bottom of the garage door. As with the springs, these brackets are also under a lot of tension and should only be adjusted or otherwise maintained by a pro. Newer models of garage doors have tamper resistant brackets that prevent the curious but inexperienced among us from getting into trouble.

But as the price of real estate has risen, the room that’s often the most neglected and underutilized in the house also has grown in value. Savvy real estate professionals and sellers are now staging the garage along with the rest of the hC Users admin Pictures OHD car resized 600C Users admin Pictures OHD car2 resized 600ouse, and getting higher returns for the effort.

Regardless of what the space is primarily used for, practitioners say spectacular garages make listings stand out and sell faster.
