Trump Cuts Obama-Era Regulations Protecting Buildings from Sea Erosion

by Brad

Trump Cuts Obama-Era Regulations Protecting Buildings from Sea Erosion


A report from foreign sources who have met and worked with President Trump said that when it comes to policy created or endorsed by President Obama, Trump only wants to know – “did Obama do this?” “Did Obama like this?” If the answer is “yes,” Trump is immediately against it.

It’s why he elected just last week to rescind an Obama-era rule which enables the elderly to sue their nursing homes over neglect and abuse, and it’s why this week, a source revealed that the Trump administration is eliminating an Obama-era rule which requires buildings in flood-prone areas take into account rising sea levels in their construction plans.

Ring of Fire’s Sydney Robinson discusses this.

After all, even those who oppose the facts about climate change in flood-prone areas can see with their own eyes the very real effects of rising sea levels, even if they want to pretend not to know why it’s happening.

It’s a common-sense rule that the Trump administration has no business meddling with, and doing so will only cause trouble. By not calling on those constructing buildings – hotels, businesses, and homes, in flood-prone areas, the Trump administration is giving its consent to see property and lives put at risk.

Trump’s rollback of this rule, along with his complete refusal to invest in any way in alternative energy or efforts to slow global warming is a slap in the face to America’s near future. After all, sea levels are expected to rise substantially in the next few years, putting already vulnerable coastal communities on suicide watch.

If one were trying to give Trump the benefit of the doubt, they may assume that he is simply trying to follow-through on his promise to reduce regulations. After all, if coastal businesses are so concerned about erosion, shouldn’t they make the changes to their structures without a federal rule? But the reality is that capitalism is a cruel mistress, and businesses are much more likely to look at short-term gains above long-term precautions.

Trump is only eliminating this rule because it has Obama’s name on it – that is truly how our President operates.

In exchange for his bitter policy decision, homes will be destroyed, businesses eroded by nature, and people’s very lives could be lost.
It all seems a bit more insane when you consider that Trump’s own company applied for a coastal erosion wall on the outer edges of his Ireland golf club. The request for the permit explicitly cited global warming and its consequence as motivation for the wall.

As usual, Trump is more than willing to do what it takes to protect his own assets, but when it comes to America’s well-being? Well that just doesn’t stand up to his own personal grudge.

20 Most Luxurious Dog Houses


Everyone loves their dog, but some people take it to the extreme. Here are 20 of the world’s most luxurious dog houses.

Subscribe to Talltanic http://goo.gl/wgfvrr

#10 – The Standard Home
This dog house is anything but standard. It features multiple windows, 60 square feet of space inside, air conditioning and a front porch light with its own dog controlled switch. The porch is made to replicate the owner’s, complete with flower pots on either side of the porch. It cost the owners ,200 to make their dog house feel like a home.

#9 – Home on the Ranch
This ranch style dog house is complete with its very own doggie swimming pool. The house has stone siding and bone decorations on the storm shutters, inside the same level of craftsmanship is used with the wooden floors, dog decals along the wallpaper, custom dog beds, and air conditioning. With the addition of the pool, this model will cost you ,500.

#8 – Complete With a Hot Tub
After some searching, we found this cabin style dog house on the Weather King’s website. The company that makes these spectacular dog houses is called J.C. Metal Building Sales. They first started by creating storage sheds, barns and lofted cabins. The are stationed in Deland, Florida and now make some of the best dog houses you could create. Each house can be customized with energy saving materials, AC, and other amenities. This model simply says price upon request, but since there are a deck and a hot tub, we think this pad is probably too pricey for our budget.

#7 – A Georgetown Home
Another great find from the world renowned artists at Beyond the Crate is the Georgetown dog house. The home is modeled after the homes in Georgetown. The amenities in this house are running water, heat, air conditioning, and lights. This one is slightly cheaper than other models with its price tag starting at only ,000.

#6 – The Victorian
This Victorian style dog house is spacious enough for three or four dogs to roam and have plenty of room. This dog house is a replica of the owner’s larger Victorian mansion. The owner commissioned the project after a large owl almost carried off one of her Pomeranians. The entire unit cost her a cool ,000, but it is large enough for her to hangout as well.

#5 – The Brick Mansion
This brick mansion design dog house is also completely customizable. The minds at Beyond the Crate are the proud designers of this luxurious piece. It has amenities like running water, lights, heat, and air conditioning. Living in the lap of luxury does cost a pretty penny, this model’s price tag starts at ,000.

#4 – California Hills Living
Beyond the Crate is the designer genius behind this extravagant home. It is called the Celebrity Hacienda Dog House and is modeled after some of the celebrity homes in the hills of California. This house is custom made with many different features to choose from such as running water, lights and air conditioning. The price reflects the different amenities you’ve had added, but this Californian mansion starts at ,000.

#3 – The Taj Mahal
This fancy dog house was clearly modeled after the famous palace, the Taj Mahal. It sets you back ,000 but giving man’s best friend the very best is the only thing on most pet owners’ minds, even if it costs a fortune.

#2 – Paris Hilton’s Dog House
Everyone knows this heiress gets exactly what she wants, including the most extravagant dog house for her many pups. The dogs reside in a two-story Italian style villa completed with roof tiles and wrought iron railings on the second-floor balcony. Inside you’ll find multiple dog beds, food and water stations, heat and air conditioning. Outside they have their own little fenced in yard complete with a tree to do their business. Money is certainly not something Paris worries about, which is probably why this dog mansion cost 5,000, she spared no expense.

#1 – Living in Luxury
Each and every one of these dog houses is luxurious and pricey beyond compare. This dog house, however, takes the cake as being the most expensive dog house in the world. It was commissioned by a surgeon in England back in the beginning of 2008. It is for her two Great Danes and costs just over 7,000. It includes everything you could image from sheepskin-lined, temperature-controlled beds, a 52-inch plasma screen tv, a 0,000 sound system to automatic dispensers, a saline treatment spa bath, and a retina scanner to keep out the common riff-raff.

Choosing a Professional Carpet Cleaner:

by Brad

*Securing a reputable Carpet Cleaning Professional:

Nearly every household and business has carpeting in one or more of the rooms. Therefore, it is important to make sure the carpets are kept clean and fresh looking at all times. Therefore, it is important to choose a professional carpet cleaner that provides the kind of service you expect from a reputable professional.

It is very important to choose a professional carpet cleaner before you agree to have any cleaning work done within the home or office or both. Sometimes simple referrals can help you find a true professional that takes great pride in their work. Therefore, if a close friend or family member recommends a carpet cleaner make sure you meet with the person before you allow them to perform their services.

You can get a pretty good idea about a person as well as their business practices by simply meeting them and discussing the issue at hand. In addition, most reputable companies do have web sites. It may be helpful to check the web site for any comments or testimonials from satisfied customers.

Make certain the carpet cleaner completely explains their cleaning process. In addition, feel free to ask questions about the cleaning process, detergents used, environmental issues etc. Many people today are concerned about the use of harmful chemical cleaning agents. Therefore, make sure the carpet cleaner uses environmentally safe detergents and cleaners on your carpets.

Sometimes carpet cleaners will offer specials to new customers. For example, sometimes cleaners will clean one room at regular price and give discounted rates for additional rooms within the home or office.

Reputable carpet cleaners will move furniture into another room while cleaning the carpet. Furniture and accessories should be put back in their original place before the cleaner leaves for the day.

Therefore, there are a number of things to consider before securing a professional carpet cleaner. Checking out the background of a company can be done quite easily. In addition, word of mouth referrals or testimonials are a good way to verify customer feedback. Of course, many reputable companies are a member of the BBB (Better Business Bureau). You can make a simple call to the BBB any time during business hours. Some carpet cleaning services may even provide customers with before and after photos of their previous work.

Once the initial carpet cleaning job is completed, you can basically see for yourself if the person did a professional job. After the carpets dry they should be virtually spotless. If you are satisfied with the job then it is probably safe to say you found yourself a new carpet cleaning professional for the future.

Finally, carpet cleaning especially within the home should probably be done at least once every six months. Much of this depends upon how dirty the carpets may get. If children or pets are present within the home, more than likely the carpets will need to be cleaned more frequently.

Your carpet cleaner should provide exceptional cleaning service at reasonable cost. In addition, make certain your carpet cleaner is using allergen free and environmentally safe agents to clean your carpet. Many carpet cleaners offer “Scotchguard” to keep your carpets looking cleaner longer.

Refresh Your Bathroom With A Deep Cleaning

by Brad
 

There’s nothing more rejuvenating (Carpet Cleaning Cleveland OH) than having a sparkling clean bathroom. Make your bathroom feel like your personal spa or simply a great place to start your day by giving it a deep cleaning. By following these easy steps, you too can refresh your bathroom. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

1. Gloves
2. Mop and bucket
3. Broom
4. Paper towels
5. Microfiber cloths
6. Cleaning supplies
7. Scrub brush
8. Sponge
9. Toothbrush

Start your cleaning quest by removing everything from the bathroom such as the shower and window curtains and bathmat and wash them. Remove window blinds, plants and wall decor so that you can wipe them down. Clear your counter tops and take everything out of the cabinets. You can use baskets to keep the items organized. This is also a great time throw out expired beauty products and medication.

Tackle the big job of cleaning the grout and tiles in your shower and bathtub first. If you are looking for a non-toxic option, try a paste of baking soda and lemon juice or vinegar for scrubbing the grout. Apply the paste directly to the grout and use your scrub brush and a little elbow grease to remove the buildup. The toothbrush works great for the hard to get at areas around the faucet or sliding door. Another option is to buy cleaning products that are specifically designed for grout and tile – just follow the instructions on the bottle for sparkling clean tiles and grout.After rinsing, rub down with a towel.

Now that you’ve tackled the big job of cleaning the bathtub area, the rest is easy. Wipe the walls and window ledges down with a cleaner appropriate to your wall covering or paint. If you have an interior fan, this is a good time to clean this too. Spray counter tops, faucets, toilet tank and sink with bathroom cleaner and wipe them down. Polish the mirrors with a soft cloth. Don’t forget to scrub that toilet bowl!

Next give your bathroom floor a good sweeping, paying attention to behind the toilet and the corners.Next, mop the floor with the appropriate cleaner. Once the surfaces and floor have dried, rehang curtains, window coverings and anything else you have removed. Don’t forget a set of fresh towels, scented candles and new soap for the finishing touches on your beautifully clean bathroom.

15 Amazing Isolated Homes

15 Amazing Isolated Homes


Here are 15 amazing places built in shocking places! Beautiful architecture in the most secluded parts of the world it’s insane!!!

7. Jarson Residence
This isolated desert paradise is, funnily enough, located in Paradise Valley, Arizona. It was built in 2007 for two real estate agents and their sons. The house was designed to be a “vessel of personal discovery” for the owners. Despite the modern appearance of the house, it is actually made out of weathered steel and copper so the house can blend in with the desert landscape. The house contains a gallery for the owner’s art collection as well as a music chamber and potters studio.

6. Soleta ZeroEnergy
This picturesque home is perfect for the eco-minded introvert. Soleta ZeroEnergy One is a home prototype that was built in the company’s home country of Romania. It was developed by the Justin Capra Foundation and it is run completely on clean energy. The house even has a feature that allows it to be controlled via smartphone. The home is affordable and versatile because it can be used as a single home, an office, or a vacation home. It is also made entirely from natural, locally sourced materials.

5. Cliff House
This crazy house has the very appropriate name of ‘Cliff House’. It’s located in Victoria, Australia and it’s got five stories that climb down the side of a cliff. It has three rooms, an elevator, and a spa. The house is suspended over the ocean by steel pins built into the cliff side. The house was designed by Modscape and it is completely one of a kind. Which isn’t really that surprising. A spokesperson from the company said that the design of the house was inspired by the way that barnacles cling to the side of a ship. The house is entered through a garage at the top of the cliff that descends to all of the floors of the house. This house shouldn’t be owned by anyone with a fear of heights but, that view is amazing.

4. Tubular House
This soup can shape house was built by the architect Richard Carbonnier so that he could live in the ice cold tundra of Baffin Island in Canada. The shape of the building was not only designed to withstand the winds but to also hold heat inside. Carbonnier has said that the building was made to do as little damage to the ground as possible because growth in the environment is very slow. He also explained that the building of the house was difficult because he would touch a tool and it would immediately freeze to his hand. Since the house cost just 260,000 to build and it is so ecologically friendly, he hopes that similar houses will be built in the near future.

3. Lake Muskoka Treehouse
Did you love The Swiss Family Robinson? Are you okay with living in a small amount of space? Well, then this treehouse is for you. It hangs in the trees around the bank of Lake Muskoka, Ontario. The house is thoughtfully built so that it doesn’t disrupt the growth of any of the surrounding trees or the trees it is built on. The house was built around the base of four existing trees. The architects of the house worked closely with arborists to preserve the trees supporting the house. In the end, the solution that they found was a single high strength steel cable hung from each tree to support the house. The single cable minimizes the impact on each individual tree and will not stunt the tree’s growth.

2. The Crystal Mill
Built in 1892, this power plant sits above the Crystal River in Colorado. The house actually once functioned as a compressor station where a wind turbine was used to fuel an air compressor. The compressed air could have been used to power tools and other machinery. The mill closed down in 1917 along with the local mine but the picturesque quality of the mill has made it one of Colorado’s most photographed sites. The mill is on the National Register of Historic Places and it has been there since 1985. You can only photograph it from afar, though. The house is privately owned and the owners don’t allow visitors. That’s probably a good choice because it looks like it would collapse whenever anyone steps foot in it.

1.Chess Pavilion
Welcome to the most dangerous game of Chess you will ever play. Mount Huashan is one of the five great mountains of China and it is also regarded to be the most dangerous hike ever. Much of the hike is done on a small ledge that can hang hundreds of feet in the air. Reinforcements have only been added recently because of the popularity it gained with tourists. The mountain has been considered holy since the second century BC and originally the ledge was just a series of wooden boards stuck along the side of the mountain with exposed nails. Because of all this, the mountain has gained a reputation for being deadly. If you reach the peak, though, you will be treated to this out of place Chess Pavilion with stunning views of the mountains that almost just killed you. Now you have to climb back down. Enjoy.
