Freedom Contracting Reveals Most Important Motives for Remodeling

In a recent public service announcement, Freedom Contracting listed the reasons why people would decide to remodel their homes.

Akron, OH – Freedom Contracting, a remodeling company in Akron, disclosed the most important motivations that homeowners cite when starting remodeling projects in their homes. 

By far the most important reason that homeowners had for remodeling their homes was that their families had changed over time.  Their home fit their families years ago.  But now their families have fundamentally changed and the house no longer fits.

Many homeowners state that they love where their house is located. They love their neighbors and the neighborhood. They love the community they have created along the way. They don’t want to sell their house and move to one that fits better. 

But maybe their older child has gone away to college and they have two teenagers left in the house now, and they need to make some changes. The first thing they need is to remodel the basement so that the teens have a place to entertain friends. They realize they need an Akron contractor to help them make these remodeling changes. 

Besides changes with children, homeowners frequently become caregivers for elderly family members. This usually makes it necessary to do some big remodeling.

Akron homeowners may need to build on an addition to accommodate their elderly relative. More often they need a bathroom that is handicapped accessible. Having a handicapped bathroom in Akron is very important to the safety and well-being of their loved ones. 

The second most important reason homeowners mentioned for remodeling was a need to update.  Over time, appliances and fixtures and plumbing and decorating ideas become outdated.  Homeowners feel the need for more modern designs and better efficiencies in their kitchens and bathrooms.

RSF Launches ‘50-day Clock’ And Petition Calling For Press Freedom Improvements Ahead Of G20 Summit

On the second anniversary of the assassination of Saudi
columnist Jamal Khashoggi, and with 50 days left until the
November 2020 G20 summit in Riyadh, Reporters Without
Borders (RSF) has launched a ‘50-day clock’ and petition
urging G20 capitals to obtain concrete press freedom
improvements in Saudi Arabia – starting with the release of
the country’s 34 jailed journalists.

From November
21 to 22, Saudi Arabia is set to host the G20 summit
virtually from Riyadh, despite holding one of the world’s
worst records on press freedom. RSF has launched a petition
calling on G20 capitals to hold the Saudi government to
account and act to obtain concrete press freedom
improvements in Saudi Arabia in the 50 days left until the
summit.

Saudi Arabia is one of the world’s most
prolific jailers of journalists, with 34
journalists
currently languishing behind bars in
connection with their work. Many of these journalists have
been mistreated in detention. RSF has consistently
campaigned for their release, and raised their cases
directly with the Saudi government in an unprecedented
press freedom mission
to the country in April
2019.

This is in addition to continued impunity for
the horrific murder of Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi
inside the Consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul on October
2, 2018. A closed
trial
with no public or media present reportedly
resulted in the sentencing of eight unidentified defendants
to prison sentences and the acquittal of three others –
falling far short of international standards. No independent
international investigation has taken
place.

“Without addressing these serious
ongoing violations in Saudi Arabia, G20 members risk
severely damaging their own reputations. But we believe the
Riyadh summit could instead present an opportunity to secure
concrete improvements. We call on G20 capitals

A Burmese Kitchen That Combines Fidelity and Freedom

Rangoon, a Burmese restaurant that opened in Brooklyn this year just in time for the pandemic, is not precisely the place that its owners, Myo Moe and Daniel Bendjy, envisioned. Still, you should go.

Ms. Moe, the chef, would build her plates with more contrast and complexity if the world weren’t upside down. The rice noodles she serves in a spicy, salty, dark sauce of fermented black beans should be fatter, she says, but supply disruptions have forced her to settle for a narrower gauge. Try them anyway, along with the tea-leaf salad, even though the lotus root it should contain isn’t always available.

Takeout and delivery have kept Rangoon afloat since March, when the restaurant had to close its dining room while it was still in soft-opening mode. A number of dishes have been stripped down, made simpler and sturdier so they can be packed in disposable containers. Order them nevertheless.

For those whose mind wanders during Zoom meetings to thoughts of getting lost in the scent of lemongrass rising from the steam on a bowl of mohinga, the city can be a frustrating place, seemingly incapable of sustaining more than one or two Burmese restaurants at a time. The scarcity of the cuisine alone should make Rangoon a compelling destination, but it would be an exciting one even if tea-leaf salad were as common here as Jamaican beef patties.

Ms. Moe, who grew up in Myanmar, interprets the country’s cuisine with a blend of fidelity and freedom that seems new to the city. She doesn’t turn the knobs all the way up on fermented flavors, chile heat, pork fat and other intensifiers in an effort to to be heard over New York’s background noise, the way some chefs do. Instead she emphasizes the subtlety and freshness that Burmese
