Taking cues from core features Android has had for years, Apple has focused much of the iOS 14 update on making the home screen simpler to organize, with more customization options, smarter suggestions and leaner, faster app experiences. The end result is a mobile operating system that does more to

Why Home Improvement Has Surged And How It’s Changing America

The sound of power tools is roaring in neighborhoods across the United States.

In the Brookside neighborhood in central Kansas City, Mo., John Buhr has do-it-yourself projects going from top of the garage to the basement.

“As soon as COVID hit, we needed someplace the kids could play,” Buhr says, noting that neighborhood parks were closed. “So we put a playhouse down [in the basement] first and then found the kids liked it so much that we went ahead and built a living room. And then my wife needed the space to work.”

So now Buhr is building an office for his wife in what was an unfinished attic above the garage. He’s also working on a self-contained apartment for his parents and in-laws to use when they’re in town for extended babysitting visits.

“This all kind of became immediately necessary, thanks to COVID,” Buhr says.

John Buhr now devotes much of his time to fixing up his family's home in Kansas City. He's building a playhouse for his young children, an apartment for the grandparents to use on their extended babysitting visits and an office for his wife, who supports the family working in the tech industry.

Home Repair Workers Adapt To Changing World Across Orange County

LAGUNA BEACH, CA — Business has been steady for the Lock Shop in Laguna Beach, and in the time of coronavirus that’s almost all anyone can ask for. It has been a roller coaster since March, when California shut down, owner Sandi Federico tells Patch.

The coronavirus pandemic struck in March and caught the world off-guard. Forced to shut down and establish safety protocols to keep their doors open. Many, including personal care service workers, were forced to stop working indefinitely. Others, such as home repair workers, were forced to change the way they do things in order to keep others safe.

“We’re doing good now,” Federico tells Patch, “but it was real slow in April and May.”

The Lock Shop has been in Laguna Beach since 1962. Federico took over the business in 1995, after moving to south Orange County. Now a full-time Laguna Beach resident, she has watched
