Advances in technology have made many household appliances more energy efficient, and even given outdated old ones some energy-saving smarts, but addressing the power usage of each individual device across the home is still a tall order. Researchers at Cornell University have been working on more of a one-size-fits-all solution, developing a vibration-sensing device that can keep tabs on appliance usage through machine learning and lasers.
The team points to smart homes of the future as its inspiration for developing the VibroSense device, imagining scenarios where the house itself knows when a washing machine has completed its cycle, when a microwave has finished heating food or a faucet is dripping. While replacing each appliance with smart versions or attaching specific sensors to them could be one way to tackle this, the Cornell team sees a more efficient way forward.
“In order to have a smart home at this point, you’d
No two rooms look identical, but well-decorated spaces share common elements. If your space feels unfinished, you may lack one or more of them. No matter what the room type or decorating style, you need the same types of room decorating items to create a functional and attractive interior.
The term “case goods” – sometimes spelled “casegoods” – refers to hard-sided furniture made of wood, metal acrylic or a combination. Originally used to describe wooden storage furniture, such as chests, dressers and sideboards because of their boxy shapes, the term is also used today to describe most furniture that isn’t upholstered. In addition to storage furniture, case goods include beds and tables of all types.
Upholstery is padded furniture covered with fabric, vinyl or leather. Seating pieces, such as sofas, loveseats, sectionals, settees, benches, chaises and chairs, are examples of upholstery. Manufacturers also offer upholstered ottomans, headboards

Ja Nelle Pleasure never used to think twice about putting food on the table for her family.
In fact, the Pleasure familyrevolvedaround food. One of their favorite activities was to spin a globe, put a finger down and cook a dish from the country where it lands.
“It was a lot of fun because we got to eat all over the place, stuff that none of us would have dared try before, like silkworms,” she says. “They really look disgusting and scary… But when you eat it, it tastes like popcorn.”
They haven’t done that since the start of the pandemic when Pleasure lost her job.
“There’s not a belt to tighten there. There’s no wiggle room here,” she says. “I’m unemployed, and there are limited things that I can do.”
This is increasingly becoming the reality for millions of Americans, and people of color are much worse
Though the property was featured in Architectural Digest not even six months ago, it seems YouTube sensation Casey Neistat and his jewelry designer wife Candice Pool have already tired of their recently renovated home in L.A.’s seaside community of Venice. The contemporary oasis has popped up for sale with a $3.9 million pricetag, a relatively modest bump over the $3.7 million Neistat originally paid two years ago.
Encircled by a high wall, the fortress-like residence is walking distance to the ever-trendy Abbot Kinney Boulevard and a short drive to the beach. Built in 2015, the blocky modern includes a roomy 3,500 square feet of living space with five bedrooms and four baths, and towers far above the sidewalk, its facade sheathed in a somewhat forbidding mixture of grey and brown paint.
Inside, however, things get more cheerful with pink wallpaper, a feature the listing notes is “daring yet very cool.”

In response to my Homegrown National Park contest invitation this past summer, Mike Foster, who lives in Reading, PA, sent me some before-and-after photos of his property. I was intrigued by all of the stonework I saw in the photos, and any garden that contains a water feature is enough to catch my interest. (Foster’s landscape has two.) But I had no idea that I was in for such a jaw-dropping experience.
From the street, Foster’s house and property look like many others I’ve seen. Walk around to the back, though, and it’s like being transported to another world, because after only a few yards of level ground the land stands up. There’s the house, a narrow strip of flat land containing a patio and deck, and then, abruptly, a massive, nearly vertical hill. When I entered the space, I felt like I had stepped into a canyon.
