This Clever Platform Makes Work-From-Home Onboarding and Training Simple

Many entrepreneurs have knowledge and expertise to share with the world. That’s why so many build their own academies or host webinars to share their knowledge and gain a little extra income.

A Surprisingly Simple Fish Dish From a High-Concept Design Duo

The kitchen of Glenn Pushelberg and George Yabu’s spare, light-filled house in Amagansett, N.Y., is defined by glass. Five panels of the stuff separate the couple’s gray quartz-topped counters from the otherwise open-plan living and dining area on the home’s second floor; a particularly Covid-weary guest might mistake it for a high-concept sneeze guard. But for Yabu, who along with Pushelberg co-owns the architecture and design firm Yabu Pushelberg — perhaps best known for its projects with the Edition hotel group and Barneys New York — it was a necessary design choice to achieve the energy he craves when entertaining the guests that often fill the house.

“It keeps the conversations from interfering with each other, but you’re still engaged with your friends in the living room while you’re doing your thing in the kitchen,” Yabu explains. “You don’t want to disturb the chi of the socialization going on.” Pushelberg

Simple home repair turns out not so simple

opinion

How many engineers does it take to change a light bulb? Three; one to hold the bulb, two to turn the ladder. You have heard some version of the old joke, poking fun at engineers, rednecks or any other handy minority.

Recently, I found myself starring in a similar “how long does it take for a homeowner to repair a kitchen light?” situation, and it was no joke.

I had installed the attractive ceiling fixture myself, years ago, and it had served without interruption since. It is a glass globe about 14 inches in diameter, fit like a bowl, upright, into a polished metal ring. The bulbs, three of them, are inside, accessible only if the bowl is removed.

More than a week ago, I was made aware of a problem: “You gotta fix that light; I can’t see how to

Clogged Bathroom Sink

The secret to unclogging a bathroom sink is to use a two-prong attack, starting with an ordinary sink plunger, which, despite its simplicity, is amazingly effective at dislodging clogs. However, to ensure that the plunger’s power is delivered directly to the clog, you must first cover the overflow hole on the side of the sink. Otherwise, when you begin plunging, the plunger will just suck air in and out of the overflow hole, delivering no pressure to

So much more than a home reno show: The simple joys of Grand Designs NZ

Grand Designs NZ is back with a new season that promises more incredible homes, optimistic owners, and the easy charm of presenter Chris Moller.

Grand Designs NZ kicked off its sixth season with a reminder that most of us will never have six million dollars to transform a heritage building into our house of dreams, and I’m not even mad about it. It’s impossible to be angry at Grand Designs NZ, the fascinating series that follows the tumultuous journeys of ambitious New Zealanders who are building their ideal home in innovative and creative ways.

Last night’s episode focused on the transformation of Auckland’s historic Farmers Department Store Grand Tearoom, an enormous and beloved space that now sits on the top floor of the Heritage Hotel. The tearoom was purchased in 2018 for $2.5 million by Steve and Bridget Varney, who plan on transforming the empty heritage-listed building into a New
