GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ (May 20, 2021)--We had our fingers crossed that Dan Spencer who replaced former Gloucester City Mayor William James was going to be the answer to the development of the city's waterfront. Spencer's four-year term began on January 6, 2019 and was to expire in 2023. Early into his term Mayor Spencer said in an interview that it might be time to move away from building a waterfront restaurant, and, maybe put condos on the Freedom Pier property instead.

Philadelphia: Most All Safer At Home Restrictions Will End June 2

PHILADELPHIA PA (May 31, 2021)--After 14 months of Philadelphians working together to slow the spread of COVID-19 and due to the continuing drop in newly reported cases, the Philadelphia Department of Public Health (PDPH) announced a further relaxation of the current Safer-at-Home restrictions beginning May 21. Additionally, PDPH announced that all Safer at Home restrictions will be ending, with the exception of the indoor mask mandate and the 11 p.m. last call for dining order, on Wednesday, June 2. Relaxing these restrictions is possible because of the immense sacrifices that Philadelphians made over the last year and because more Philadelphians are getting vaccinated every day. We’d like to thank our front line and essential workers who risked their own well-being to care for COVID-19 patients, kept our city running, and administered more than 1.3 million doses of vaccine so far.

How much does a livable shed cost?

As technology moves forward, we've found ourselves seeing fewer smart houses being built. This is for many reasons; the cost of living in a smart house, the power bill, having to repair what is in your home immediately because if one thing is broken, everything else is too. But those things aren't the only reason why people aren't buying and building smart houses. Another major reason is that no one needs all that room. Most people these days are happy with a small room to call home at the end of the day. So, let me introduce you to the new trending home: Shed Homes. What is a shed home? A shed home can mean many different things, but mostly it means that it is a home that is made from shipping containers. This might sound a bit strange, but trust me on this, it is a very unique, and... Read more →

CNBNews PET TIPS: Air Travel Suggestions For Your Dog

Traveling by air with a pet can be a challenge. If you have a dog small enough to fit comfortably in an airline approved carrier that slides under the seat in front of you, it’s much easier. If your dog is not a service animal or small enough to travel in-cabin, you’re almost better off to drive to the destination. Placing an animal in cargo has a mountain of risks associated with it. There are actual horror stories about the trauma animals have suffered during air travel by cargo. There was a period of time where it seemed these stories where prevalent in news headlines. Most airlines have since attempted to improve their service to animals in cargo but there are still many factors they cannot control. To begin with the stress from simply being separated from you can be devastating to a dog. Add to that the air temp... Read more →

How to Create the Perfect Home Gym

This article is for those who prefer to work out their fitness at home rather than at the gym. If space and budget are limited, you can always use sports accessories that are small in size but have huge training potential. If the size of the equipment does not matter, then your choice is truly limitless. So what pieces of equipment are important to building a home gym? The main elements of physical activity and exercise Before we start talking about exercise machines, let's get back to the basics. Many people confuse the two concepts: physical activity and exercise in fact, there is a difference between these concepts, since the former refers to any kind of movement, while the latter refers to more structured actions performed for specific purposes.
