Milwaukee NARI Home & Remodeling Show starts Oct. 16

CLOSE

The annual NARI Home & Remodeling Show will be slightly smaller this year as the coronavirus pandemic keeps more people at home and interested in making improvements. 

NARI Milwaukee is hosting its home and remodeling show Oct. 16-18 at State Fair Park. 

Around 70 NARI Milwaukee members will host exhibit booths. Last year, more than 100 members staffed exhibit booths. The home and remodeling show has exhibitors for all types of remodeling and home improvement products and services. 

“We’re excited to connect homeowners who are eager to get their home improvements underway with local contractors. By hosting a safe and accessible show, we’re helping reopen the economy and support area small businesses,” said Diane Welhouse, executive director of NARI Milwaukee, in a news release. “Nearly 80% of our members are small businesses with fewer than 10 employees so the annual show is important to them.”

The reason for this is every condo building is different regarding rules and regulations about construction in the building. The condo HOA or board will then inform you of the basic guidelines for what can and can’t be done for renovations, it stated.


Addressed in the report as well are things to be aware of, such as newly constructed buildings may not yet have rules in place for renovations, and you have to be

TL1A and its receptor could reduce fibrosis and tissue remodeling in patients with severe lung disease

Your lungs and airways need to be stretchy, sort of like balloons. Take a big breath, and they’ll open right up.

Damaged lungs can’t open properly. Patients with asthma, idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis and systemic sclerosis suffer from fibrosis and tissue remodeling, where a build-up of tissue and immune cells, and proteins that form a glue-like substance, keep the airways from expanding. As fibrosis gets worse, taking a breath feels like blowing up a balloon filled with concrete.

In a new study, researchers at La Jolla Institute for Immunology (LJI) report that a protein called TL1A drives fibrosis in several mouse models, triggering tissue remodeling, and making it harder for lungs and airways to function normally.

“Our new study suggests that TL1A and its receptor on cells could be targets for therapeutics aimed at reducing fibrosis and tissue remodeling in patients with severe

Nerds Are Back Picking SEC Games

First came the odor and then the vision. Sawdust everywhere. And then the sound, saws and hammers. What now?

I had come into the office early Monday and recognized that something was going on in the Almost Perfect Predictions Department part of the building. I had seen no sign of the Nerds since they disappeared for their annual six-month vacation following bowl games. It seemed they had elected to take off a few more weeks as the Southeastern Conference football season had been delayed by the coronavirus and COVID-19 disease.

I was a little surprised to spot the Grand Geek emerging from the APP war room and crossing over into the break room. He was ordinarily dressed in jacket and bowtie, but today he was wearing carpenter’s overalls and painter’s hat.

He seemed surprised to see me, too, but took a few moments to explain that
