Tips for renting different types properties

When it comes to choosing a place to rent, there are many considerations other than price. The ideal goal is to find a place that fits your needs while also fitting your budget.

However, deciding on which rental units are most suitable for you can take some research. It’s helpful to take some time to write down some considerations to help your search be more successful.

Some questions you could ask yourself are:

•    How much space do you need to live comfortably?

•    Is there parking?

•    Is backyard space important to you?

•    Are pets allowed?

•    Is the property close to transit?

•    How secure is the building?

•    What are the neighbours like? Are they quiet?

Once you’ve answered these questions, you can then narrow down your search for a rental apartment by type — namely, a house, a unit in an apartment building or condo, or in student housing.

Let’s start with an apartment or condo — look for one that is secure with a keypad at the door that allows tenants only. You might have to work within a small living space, but

Fistfight breaks out in Modesto Mall

While Southern California shoppers have so far enjoyed a relatively tranquil Thanksgiving and Black Friday, a fight broke out farther north at a mall in Modesto.

The brawl at the Vintage Faire Mall erupted on Thursday night, according to the Modesto Bee. About six men were involved in the fight, which moved quickly into the entrance of the JCPenney store, according to a YouTube video taken of the incident.

Modesto Police Lt. Steve Stanfield said he wasn’t sure if officers were called to the scene. He said any officer who would have responded is probably still asleep. There were no reported victims, however, and no documentation of anyone taken into custody.

“I talked to the graveyard units and they knew nothing about it,” Stanfield said. When he got into work today, “everybody was looking at each other going, ‘Did anybody know there was a fight at the mall?’”

“We’re trying to see if anyone responded,” he added.

Scenes of violence have marred Black Friday in previous years. In 2011, for example, a woman at a Porter Ranch store pepper-sprayed several customers in what authorities

Kids Shopping

CHICAGO — During this holiday season, the treatment of young children in public places is something that should be the concern of all of us. Children don`t really like to shop, especially children ages one to ten, unless it is at a toy store or specifically for them.

Instead of dragging them to all corners of the earth for shopping, perhaps what we should do is give them our time. By time I mean involving ourselves in children`s lives, children`s concerns, children`s expectations and children`s joys-not having them conform to adult wishes as if they were an object.

We often see children shopping late of night who are terribly fatigued and not interested at all in finding a sweater for Aunt Kay. I cringe every time I see a child getting smacked for “not behaving right“ while shopping.

Children need to learn respect and manners, but to attempt to teach manners while they are involved in adult activities is not the appropriate place. The holidays would be a lot happier for all

Shop at work

There are men who love to shop. I just don’t know any.

The fellas I’m related to, the guys I work with and the ones I see when I’m out shopping would rather have a tooth yanked (without Novocain) than pick out a suit, choose a shirt, or, for that matter, shop for sweat socks. A good example of this mind set is Peter Bentler, a 27-year-old financial adviser at Smith Barney, who told me that shopping “is really torture.” “Going into stores, looking at multiple things? … I hate it.”

It’s this kind of negative attitude that Daniel Wiebracht thrives on. Wiebracht is a “professional clothier” who counts Bentler among his devoted clients.

Wiebracht’s job is to keep you out of stores. He is the store. Wiebracht comes to your office, assesses your needs, shows you the stuff, takes your measurements, orders the clothes — down to the socks and boxer shorts if that’s what you want — and then delivers it all, waits for you to try it on and will take it back for further alterations if you don’t like the fit. “It’s the best deal

The new tactics to get you spending

People are more savvy than ever before about the ways shops get them to spend their money, but the retailers are always coming up with new tactics.

Why are sweets and chocolate always by the till in supermarkets? Why do they put the everyday essentials like bread and milk at the back of shop so you have to walk through as many aisles as possible to reach them?

Why is the perfume and jewellery section always at the front of a department store?

Why do some shops have low lighting? Why in Idea do you have to do a loop of the whole shop rather than being able to get straight to the bit you actually want?

Size Clothing Style Tips And Shopping Guide

Women, what are our biggest problems? We have to get full-figured clothing that will truly boast our beautiful curves. There are hundreds of colours styles and brands to select from, but if it doesn’t boast our bodies, we will not feel our best.

Scoop Neck of the guitar vs. V-Neck

Luckily for us, scoop neck of the guitar and v-neck t-shirts can look nice on all kinds of plus-size figures. A more substantial scoop can fire-up a costume, while an inferior scoop will just show a hint of cleavage. A v-neck top can be both moderate and captivating. V-necks have a tendency to extend your neckline and bring more focus on that person. They’re known as a closet must-have and come in everyday, job, or dressy styles. In addition they look good with just almost anything.

Pretty Plus-Size Tops

What do we want? Simply, a beautiful top that will highlight our curves! Black is slimming, but sometimes we want more! How about colour, different fabric, or trendy styles? Yes, we can have those too! Images are also very flattering. Select a nice, smaller print (flowers are excellent, but don’t wear a sizable floral printing), or a slimming vertical line print.

Online Shopping and E-Commerce In Americans

Americans are incorporating a wide range of digital tools and platforms into their purchasing decisions and buying habits, according to a Pew Research Center survey of U.S. adults. The survey finds that roughly eight-in-ten Americans are now online shoppers: 79% have made an online purchase of any type, while 51% have bought something using a cellphone and 15% have made purchases by following a link from social media sites. When the Center first asked about online shopping in a June 2000 survey, just 22% of Americans had made a purchase online. In other words, today nearly as many Americans have made purchases directly through social media platforms as had engaged in any type of online purchasing behavior 16 years ago.

But even as a sizeable majority of Americans have joined the world of e-commerce, many still appreciate the benefits of brick-and-mortar stores. Overall, 64% of Americans indicate that, all things being equal, they prefer buying from physical stores to buying online. Of course, all things are often not equal – and a substantial share of the public says that price is often a far more important consideration than whether their purchases happen online or in physical stores.

Bargain-shopping Blackhawks

The bold moves by the Blackhawks’ Central Division rivals came early on the opening day of free agency.

A short time after the Stars acquired Jason Spezza in a blockbuster trade Tuesday, the Blues opened their pocketbook to sign the coveted Paul Stastny to a huge contract and the Avalanchescooped up veteran sniper Jarome Iginla. The Wild followed by bringing Thomas Vanek into the fold and the Jets even got into the act when they added Mathieu Perreault to bolster their center position.

All the while, the Hawks were relatively quiet, only re-signing veteran center Peter Regin to a one-year, $650,000 contract.

Just when it seemed the Hawks would be content entering the 2014-15 season with Andrew Shaw, who is better suited as a winger, or unproven prospect Teuvo Teravainen as their second-line center, general manager Stan Bowman landed a bigger fish with a late-afternoon signing of veteran Brad Richards to a one-year, $2 million contract.

Just like that, the Hawks had a legitimate No. 2 center.

“It’s a big moment for us to be able to add someone of (Richards’) caliber as a hockey player and as an individual,” Bowman said. “He brings so many things to the table for us. There are a lot of options for our coaching staff now. We’ve certainly been searching for someone that is an experienced center in the NHL. He’s
