California Power Outages Ease, First Linked Death Reported

SAN FRANCISCO — The lights were back on Friday for many of the nearly 2 million Northern California residents who lost electricity when Pacific Gas & Electric switched it off this week in an effort to prevent wildfires, as the first death linked to the outages was reported — a man who relied on oxygen. The threat of widespread outages loomed in Southern California after the winds moved to the Los Angeles area, where a wildfire fueled by strong Santa Ana winds prompted officials to order the the evacuation of 100,000 people from their homes in the foothills of the San Fernando Valley in Los Angeles County. PG&E restored power in Northern California after workers inspected power lines to make sure it was safe to do so. The winds had increased the possibility of transmission lines toppling to the ground and starting wildfires. The utility said 543,000 Northern California businesses and residences got their power back — but that nearly 195,000 customers were still in the dark. About half of those who lost power in the San Francisco Bay Area had it again on Friday. The city itself was not subject to the preventive outages. Experts have said there are between two and three pe...

The perfect kit to cook your Christmas dinner: Taking advice from Britain’s top chefs, Felicity Cloake has compiled the ultimate list of kitchen accessories

The kitchen is a magical place at Christmas, filled with family, the warm, zesty smell of mince pies and mulled wine and, best of all, new toys for me to play with.  It’s the one time of year I have a legitimate excuse to add to my vast cookware collection; in the ten years I’ve been writing about food I’ve gathered every gimmick going – like Nigella Lawson I find shopping for kitchen gadgets ‘one of the great joys of life’. But what does a home cook really need? Well, according to Gordon Ramsay, who says he’s ‘always suspicious of people who have every kitchen gadget under the sun’, it’s ‘less than you might think’ – so whether you’re preparing to cook up your own festive feast, or buying gifts for the foodie in your life, these are the essentials… Almost every chef will tell you the most important thing in their kitchen is a decent knife – Heston Blumenthal says they’re his ‘number one gadget’.  Nick Nairn and Gordon Ramsay both like the German brand Wüsthof, but whichever you go for, the important thing is that your knives should be well-balanced and comfortable to hold. Don’t make the mistake of thinking you need a whole set; one good knife is better than six mediocre ...

2019 Assembly Plant of the Year: Refrigerator Production Heats Up at GE Appliances | 2019-10-01

Refrigerators are one of the only appliances found in nearly every type of home, whether it’s an apartment in suburban Atlanta, a high-rise condominium in downtown Chicago, a beach house in Hawaii or a trailer in Texas. The humble refrigerator is also the hardest working household appliance. Day and night, it’s constantly running to keep all types of food and beverages cool, fresh or frozen. The hardest working refrigerator factory in the world is GE Appliances’ facility in Decatur, AL. The vertically integrated, high-volume assembly plant located on the banks of the Tennessee River specializes in mass-producing top-freezer refrigerators. Because of its unique heritage, GE Appliances, a Haier company, has been the world’s leading refrigerator producer for almost 100 years. Today, the 42-year-old Decatur plant is one of the company’s highest-volume facilities. The assembly plant is one of several GE Appliances’ factories in the United States that produce everything from air conditioners to washing machines. But, what sets the Decatur facility apart is its ability to assemble thousands of refrigerators a day while meeting key performance indicators such as cost, delivery, employee...

53 Dorm Room Essentials to Buy for 2019 | The Strategist

Every product is independently selected by (obsessive) editors. Things you buy through our links may earn New York a commission. If you’re heading off to college this fall, or are the parent of an incoming freshman, you’re probably neck deep in packing lists full of dorm-room staples like twin extra-long sheets and bed risers. While most of the lists you’ll find online or in big-box stores are fairly generic, we were curious about what actual students find most useful, and which things are truly functional on campuses. To find out, we consulted with 13 resident assistants from nine different colleges, who together have looked inside hundreds of dorm rooms. Our seasoned experts are so familiar with outfitting these spaces, they told us, that they’re often the first source students consult when it comes to furnishing their rooms. Interestingly, one common piece of advice from our RAs is to avoid overpacking. “Don’t buy extra furniture until you’ve seen the room you’re going to be in,” says recent Barnard graduate Alice Min, who was an RA for three years. “On move-in day, there were so many fed-up parents lugging futons and nightstands home.” Sabrinna Fabi, who graduated from Marym...

How to find the best mortgage rate for your new home

Would-be homeowners know that finding the best mortgage rate — that’s the annual interest rate you’ll pay on your mortgage — is one of the most important first steps towards homeownership.  Signing on to a mortgage with a good interest rate means you’ll save money every month, and over the entire life of the loan. Here’s what to do to make sure you’re getting the best deal on your mortgage. In case you hadn’t heard, your credit score is the key to most financial opportunities. Keeping your score in the good to exceptional range will unlock the best (and cheapest) financial products, including rates on things like, you guessed it, a mortgage. You can check your credit score for free with Credit Karma, Credit Sesame, Credit.com, or FreeCreditReport.com. If your credit score is poor or fair, consider waiting to apply for a mortgage until you can get it higher. Depending on the type of mortgage product you go with, you could be locked into that interest rate for the life of the loan (unless you refinance, but that’s a topic for a different story).  This equates to thousands of dollars over the years, so the lower you can get your interest r...

Best garden hose: The best hosepipes to buy from £12

Although any hose can help you give your garden the love and attention it needs, buying the right one will make the job a lot easier – and will last a lot longer, too. Hoses may all look pretty similar from the outside, but you have a few options when it comes to material, length and storage. We’ve put together a short buying guide to help explain the key features you absolutely need to understand, but if you’re looking for our top picks, and you already know what you want, you’ll find them down below. Generally speaking, rubber hoses are the most durable type of hose you can buy. They’re robust enough to handle higher water pressures, and much less prone to kinks and other wear and tear that can cause damage and cracks. Vinyl hoses, meanwhile, are more susceptible to kinking and other damage, but are available at lower prices. For smaller watering jobs and infrequent use, this shouldn’t be a problem, so long as you store the hose carefully. However, it may be worth spending a little more for a longer lasting rubber hose if you’ll be using it often. If you’re still not sure, or your needs fall somewhere between the two, hoses made of a rubber and plastic combination are becoming...

Apple’s newest tablet is a bit of a curiosity. Especially when the company already has two very capable tablets: the iPad Pro is a productivity beast while the iPad Air is more for leisure browsing. The just-announced iPad is Apple’s latest entry-level tablet. It’s more than $100 cheaper than the iPad Air and, depending on which model you get, at least $1,000 less than an iPad Pro. I’m leading with the price of the iPad, because, to be blunt, that’s its greatest advantage over the other iPads. Yes, it has a larger 10.2″ display and it can use a  Smart Keyboard, but other than those two things, this new iPad is just an upsized 6th Gen iPad. It has the same A10 chip, the same 128GB max storage, the same 8mp camera. It’s just bigger. When you look at it side-by-side with the iPad Air, it’s hard to justify not paying the extra $170 for the...
