Winterizing Your Home

Winterizing Your Home

Winterizing Your Home

Winter is around the corner, and this is the best time to start preparing your house for the cold. After all, many places in California are already starting to feel the effects of winter. You do not want to wait until it is too cold to do anything or until something breaks due to the cold. You need to prepare, and now is the time to do it.

Here are a few things you should do around the house before things get too cold:

  • Insulate pipes. Whether the pipe in your yard or under you house, you should make sure that it is properly insulated. Water expands when it freezes. If it freezes in a pipe, it can break the pipe and cause a damaging leak.
  • Fill any gaps in your exterior walls. Gaps in the outside walls of your house let cold air in, and they can also serve as an entrance to any unwelcome creatures seeking shelter from the cold. You can get some expansion foam to fill these gaps. Just spray a little in and watch it expand to fill the hole.
  • Check the weather stripping around sliding doors. These can wear down over time, which will allow cold air inside. This can be easily prevented by purchasing replacement weather stripping. Most replacement strips have adhesive tape on the back, so all the homeowner has to do is pull off the old weather stripping and stick on the new one.
  • Switch your ceiling fan directions. Most people do not realize that their ceiling fans have a winter setting. This simply reverses the direction the fan spins so that it will push the warm air that rose to the ceiling down along the walls.
  • Check your smoke detectors. This one doesn’t necessarily go with winterizing, but it is important nonetheless. Check your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors to make sure they are still working properly.

These are just a few tips to help keep your home safe and warm this winter season.

Road Trip Checklist

Summer is the perfect time to take a road trip with friends. It is vacation season and the weather is perfect for you to drive your convertible with the wind blowing in your hair. Whether you have a destination in mind or you prefer to just drive, make sure you have packed your essentials such as sunglasses, sunblock, swim suits and have your driving playlist ready. Before you get on the road, make sure to do a safety check of your vehicle.

  • Check that all exterior lights of the car work properly: head lights, tail lights, brake lights, signal lights and high beams.
  • Make sure your horn is working and loud enough for others to hear.
  • All passengers need to be wearing a seatbelt. Make sure those are functioning properly.
  • Hopefully it will not rain, but in case it does, you will want your windshield wipers working.
  • Take a look at your tires. Do they need air? Are the treads good to withstand your road trip? Take a spare tire with you as well.
  • Open up the hood of your car and fill up the fluids.
  • Get your brakes checked and make sure they are good to go.

By making sure your car is road trip-ready, you are taking extra precautions to avoid accidents. In addition, you could also be saving yourself from being pulled over and get a ticket. A few extra minutes to look over your car can save you thousands of dollars, if you really think about it.

If you think you will be driving across state borders, keep in mind that driving rules might not be the same. For example, you might not be allowed to make a right on a red light or you might not be allowed to pump your own gas at a gas station, instead a store clerk is supposed to do this for you. Overall, drive with safety in mind, as you would anywhere because getting a ticket, getting pulled over, getting into an accident or getting arrested is a cost no one wants to worry about having to deal with especially out-of-state.

Copyright Infringement & Online Piracy

Copying, displaying, and distributing creative work that you do not have the rights to is copyright infringement. Creative work includes movies and TV shows, music, books, video games, and even computer programs like Photoshop. These are all works that a person would generally need to pay for in order to access it. It is also copyright infringement if they did pay for it but then decided to produce copies of it with the intention of giving them out. They do not have the rights to production.

Copyrights can be sold to another person, in which case that new person would have the right to use it. However, if a person does not explicitly hold the copyright, then they may not infringe upon it. That is illegal.

One of the most common forms of copyright infringement is called piracy, and it refers to the copying, uploading, and sharing of creative work on the internet without the copyright owner’s permission. Movies, TV shows, and music are among the most pirated forms of creative work.

If a person commits online piracy, they are committing a federal crime that carries some steep penalties.

If a person’s intention is to make a profit, then they can be fined and put into prison for 1 year. The more copies that were made and the more total retail value of the copied works, then the greater the fines and the longer the prison sentence.

It can be easy for people to get involved with online piracy because of the accessibility of so many illegally available works. They believe it to be a harmless crime to download a movie illegally, but it is definitely a risk. The consequences are much more expensive than if they were to just pay $10 for the DVD.
