Georgia Heating & Air Conditioning Company Recognized for Top Performance, 12th in a row
Gwinnett, Georgia, February 14, 2017 - Gwinnett, Georgia, heating and air conditioning company Empire HVAC recently received multiple service awards. In addition to receiving an Angie’s List Super Service Award the installer was named a “Best of Gwinnett” honorable mention for 2016. Empire HVAC specializes in residential and commercial HVAC repair and replacement in the greater Metro Atlanta area.
This year marks the 12th year in a row that Empire has been recognized with an Angie’s List Super Service Award. Says owner Martin Hoover, “So many of our customers tell us they found us on Angie’s List, so it’s really rewarding to be recognized by an outside party.” Angie’s List designates business as “Super Service” providers when they meet outstanding requirements for professionalism, punctuality, and courteousness. Only 5% of HVAC providers in the Atlanta area have reached the designation.
“The Best of Gwinnett honorable mention was a fun surprise,” says Hoover. “Since it’s voted on by local residents, it tells us we’re doing something right. To be awarded when we didn’t even realize we were nominated is a big accomplishment!” Gwinnett Magazine awards dozens of local businesses each year with the “Best of Gwinnett” accolade based on tens of thousands of online votes.
Founded in 1985, Empire HVAC is actually based in Decatur, GA. Servicing the entire north Georgia area, the team places great emphasis on professionalism. All employees are completely licensed and insured as well as regularly drug-tested, and senior installers are all NATE-certified. “We were really excited to add Ken Kolar to the team recently,” says Hoover. “As a senior installer he’ll undoubtedly provide a lot of value to our customers through his years of experience.”
Offering 24/7 service in Decatur, Alpharetta, Gwinnett, Duluth, Vinings, and beyond, Empire HVAC has become one of the leading names in local air conditioning service in the area. “You know, it just seems so straightforward to us,” explains Hoover. “We live and work here, too, so it just makes sense we’d provide our neighbors the kind of service we’d expect.”

Ted Williams' fishing retreat in the Florida Keys is for sale and featured this week at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA, February 14, 2017 - “Ted Williams' Florida Keys Fishing Home”
For most people, the first day of spring is March 20th, but for baseball fans spring starts about a month earlier when Major League Baseball pitchers and catchers report to their spring training camps in Florida and Arizona. Spring is also the traditional season to start looking for a new house. This spring, one of baseball’s all-time star's fishing retreat in the Florida Keys is for sale.
Seventeen-time all-star Ted Williams spent his entire major league baseball career with the Boston Red Sox, with time out as a Navy pilot in World War II and the Korean War. A six-time batting champion, Ted was twice the American League Most Valuable Player and Triple Crown Award winner with a roster of nicknames that described his playing style: Teddy Ballgame, The Thumper, The Greatest Hitter Who Ever Lived and Splendid Splinter. By the end of his career that ran from 1939 to 1960, he had a lifetime .344 batting average, 521 home runs, last player to hit over .400 and a career 0.482 on-base percentage - the highest in MLB history. He was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1966 in his first year of eligibility.
Baseball wasn’t Williams’ only interest. He was also an avid sports fisherman, hosted a television fishing show, did Sears fishing commercials and was inducted into the IGFA Fishing Hall of Fame. Fishing was always a great hobby and diversion from his baseball career and during his downtime he enjoyed casting practice off his dock at his Florida Keys home.
Now for sale at $4.2 million is Ted Williams former home where he lived and honed his fishing/casting skills until the early 1990s. Always known as a fisherman’s paradise, whether from a boat, the surf, off a bridge, a dock or spearfishing, the abundance and variety of fish in the Key’s crystalline blue waters has been a draw for sports fishermen since the 1800s. Ted found the ideal location in Upper Matecumbe Key on Islamorada in a protected cove surrounded by deep tropical landscape. Totally private, the site has bay views and is also in walking distance of the Key’s quaint restaurants and shops. Positioned on 1.38 fenced and gated acres, the 3,193-square-foot home has four bedrooms, four baths, a three-bedroom, one-bath guest house and a separate gym. The exterior has an infinity pool and spa with a protected dock, a short boat ride to some of Florida’s best fishing spots. Cheri Tindall of Ocean Sotheby’s International Realty holds the listing.
Average MLB salaries now run over $4 million a year – just about enough to purchase the longtime home of one of baseball's greatest hitters. Loaded with history and having undergone many upgrades, Ted Williams’ former Florida Keys fishing spot is for sale, priced at $4.2 million.

SAN FRANCISCO, CA, February 7, 2017 - NanaWall Systems, the pioneer of the opening glass wall category, introduces the the NanaWall SL73—an operable glass wall system that is designed to stand up to hurricanes as one of the industry’s toughest folding systems. The NanaWall SL73 features reinforced structural posts and impact-rated laminated glass to provide unparalleled strength, while the Secure Locking System, specialized seals and panel design provide superior wind and rain resistance.
The SL73 allows homeowners in hurricane-prone areas to enjoy their views while remaining safe and dry. It received high ratings on both static and dynamic pressure water resistance tests, and is tested to demanding standards for preventing water, wind and debris from entering the building—not only at the ground level, but up to 15 stories.
“Large openings are easy to design, but what matters most is the performance when closed,” said NanaWall CEO Ebrahim Nana. “Many systems are limited to outward openings and are not approved for areas that need protection from water. The NanaWall SL73 offers a complete impact-rated system, allowing both inward- and outward-opening systems to qualify, while also providing protection from water penetration.”
TWEET THIS: Tough enough for hurricane country, the @nanawall SL73 is engineered to perform in #hurricane climates. http://bit.ly/2iuDxdl #nanawall
Its performance is due to several key factors:
» The NanaWall Impact Post: Reinforced structural posts and impact-rated laminated glass provide unparalleled strength.
» Combats wind and rain: Specialized seals and panel design provide superior wind and rain resistance, while the engineered sills resist wind-driven water from entering the home or business.
» NanaWall Secure Locking System: Multi-point tamper-resistant locks shoot the concealed lockbolts up into the head track and down into the floor track.
» Reliable operation: Dual stainless steel elevated running carriages within the reinforced structural posts are unaffected by track debris and lie above the water run-off level.
Due to the attributes above, the SL73 scored high in tests developed for windows and doors by the American Architectural Manufacturers Association and Miami-Dade County, Florida.
"On October 29, 2012, Long Beach was hit hard by Superstorm Sandy. Despite major damage sustained by our house, the NanaWall system held firm! The glass was not broken, the frame was not damaged, and the door remained closed and secure. We were amazed," said homeowner Jacqueline Z.

Innovative Home Décor Purveyor 76th & Newbury Creates Insightful New Infographic Outlining 2017 Nursery Predictions
TRUMBULL, CONNECTICUT, December 29, 2016 - Designers and fashionistas often focus a lot of time and effort on the trends and style preferences most often displayed in living rooms, bedrooms, and kitchens around the world, but the latest in nursery design trends are important to consider, as well. Style mavens 76th & Newbury have created an infographic that outlines several nursery-focused style evolutions that designers have predicted will become more prevalent in 2017.
Click 2017 Nursery Design Trends to view the infographic.
Nurseries offer parents an opportunity to explore design themes and style elements that aren’t necessarily appropriate in the rest of the home, but a child’s room is the perfect place for geometric patterns or jungle prints, eclectic color combinations, repurposing of old furniture to create dual-use pieces, and more. According to the infographic, which was created using the input of renowned designers in the US, 2017 will bring a host of style changes that can transform any nursery from a utilitarian kid’s room to one that is bursting with creativity and fun.
From a preference for gender neutral colors to incorporating lighter woods or whitewashed finishes, nurseries styles will shift this coming year. Take a look at the infographic to see firsthand just how much is shifting in 2017. One of the biggest changes you’ll notice is a drive toward darker colors in nurseries - with one big advantage being that the moodier hues help furniture colors to pop more easily. Rustic wallpapers are also forecast to be huge, as are geometric shapes on the walls.

In 2016, many of the world's top superstars tried to sell their glamorous homes. A new look at the Top 10 Celebrity Homes that were for sale in 2016 featured this week at TopTenRealEstateDeals.com.
POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA , December 29, 2016 - “2016 Top Ten Celebrity Homes”
Whether one’s preferences lean toward a New York City loft, a Los Angeles home overlooking Hollywood, or a mid-century sculptured perch on the Mediterranean, there was a celebrity home on sale in 2016 for almost anyone who is extremely wealthy.
When designer Pierre Cardin looked for a vacation home, he chose one of the best locations in the world and a one-of-a-kind mansion with unique style. He chose a home on a Mediterranean cliff overlooking the sea made up of bubble gum pink bubbles. At $335 million, it is the second most expensive home currently for sale in Europe.
After almost 20 years of Las Vegas appearances, Frank Sinatra wanted a place where he and his friends could hang out for an occasional hiatus from their fans in a private location. His longtime home in Palm Desert, California is for sale at $3.9 million.
Millions of Elvis Presley fans have ogled over his Graceland mansion, but it was his first home with Priscilla in Trousdale Estates overlooking Los Angeles where the fans have been coming for years to write messages to Elvis on the gate door set into the garden wall. The home is now for sale asking $30 million.
Adam Levine and his supermodel wife, Behati Prinsloo, sold their New York City loft in April for $5.4 million - just a few months before welcoming their first child, Dusty Rose, into the world.
Back in 1982, before he was a billionaire and a brand name, reality television star and on his first marriage, Donald Trump was a rising star in the New York City real estate world and shopping for his first trophy mansion. His former Greenwich, Connecticut home was on the market in 2016 at $45 million.
As Kirk Douglas recently celebrated his 100th birthday at the Beverly Hills Hotel, a new family was moving into the Douglas family's longtime vacation home in Palm Springs, California. The home was designed in the 1950s for the owner of the champion racehorse Seabiscuit.

TACOMA, WASH., December 29, 2016 - In the spirit of giving back locally, Milgard® Windows & Doors provided gifts and holiday cheer to the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound for the 4th year in a row.
The Milgard “Matching Gift/Community Action Team” (MG/CAT) is passionate about many charitable projects in the Tacoma, Washington area. The volunteer program that began with Carol Milgard and her dedication to community service is still going strong today. This particular event started when the Al Davies branch of the Boys & Girls Clubs came to Milgard asking for help with gifts for kids who were not going to be receiving any at Christmas.
The initial commitment was for Milgard employees to buy gifts for the kids, wrap them, and then deliver them to the club for distribution. But, the MG/CAT team had other ideas. Four years later, the event has turned into not only a time to deliver gifts, but, also have fun with the kids through sports, crafts, a photo booth, and this year, even a video game truck.
“I love being part of this event,” said Tim Large, ERP core team member at Milgard, shown here with Santa (aka Fred Herzberg). “Playing games with the kids, enjoying fellowship with the Milgard team and seeing the looks on everyone’s faces filled with joy makes all the planning and preparation worthwhile.”
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound is “to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.” Milgard helped lift the spirits of over 150 kids spreading kindness and making lasting memories that they can carry with them through their lives.
“Words fail me. You have lead a team, more like an army, of dedicated, kind and compassionate colleagues to give our kids a wonderful holiday,” said Teri Moore Vice President of Philanthropy for the Boys & Girls Clubs of South Puget Sound. “Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

PK’s aluminum grills evenly distribute and retain heat for superior grilling and smoking, while also achieving the quintessential exterior sear that outdoor chefs covet. Aluminum is also inherently rust-proof, which along with the grills' elegant design, contributes to PK’s famous durability and longevity. Combined with PK's unique and versatile 4-point venting system, the PK360 capsule is well suited for hot and fast grilling and low and slow barbecue cooking.
"When we set out to design the next generation of PK Grills, we wanted to build the highest quality, premium charcoal grill and smoker available in the market. The barbecue grill market is unfortunately often known for shoddy products and low quality materials that don’t last. With the PK360, our guiding design principle was “no compromises, anywhere”. We wanted to build an amazing cooker with superior longevity and a beautiful design that our customers would be proud to display on their back porches. The PK360 has a robust set of features and the highest quality materials we could find, offering our customers more value for their money than traditional charcoal grills or ceramic kamados. The PK360 is the best and last grill you’ll ever own.”

The simple venting system and aluminum construction produced a grill that excelled at both hot and fast grilling and low and slow barbecue cooking. The popular grills were sold all over the mid-south under the brand Portable Kitchen and in 1958 the company sold and moved operations to Little Rock, Arkansas where they exist today.
In the 1950’s and 1960’s, the PK Grill was the best outdoor cooker money could buy, and many argue that it has remained so over its history. In recent years, the Classic PK grill has been re-established as a favorite of backyard enthusiasts and professionals alike. Among other accolades, the International Steak Cook-off was won by contestants using Classic PK Grills in both 2015 and 2016. Today, Portable Kitchens fulfills a mission to improve upon our own standards and make the best outdoor cooker available at any price. The new PK360 Grill & Smoker is the result of several years of design and development and over sixty years of outdoor grilling excellence. It is the new generation of PK Grill.
SAN FRANCISCO, CA., November 8, 2016 - Today Hugreen launched an Indiegogo campaign for its flagship product, Gnome. This solar and radio frequency powered smart irrigation system remotely controls and monitors gardens and farms. Four starter kits are available, beginning at $120.
The Gnome system is comprised of a network of sensors and water valves, connected to one central hub:
● The hub is the control center for Gnome’s sensors and valves. It can link up to 30 nodes (sensors and valves) that are within a 1km radius range, and connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi. - Its primary function is to send data to the user and relay commands to the nodes.
● The sensors monitor fertilizer level, sunlight exposure, soil temperature, and ambient temperature via four stainless steel probes.
● The valves control water flow of the sprinkler system remotely, which can handle water pressure up to 115 psi.
Gnome is the only IoT sensor that can measure fertilizer level and soil moisture concurrently. Gnome uses industrial level Frequency Domain Reflectometry (FDR) technology to measure the presence of fertilizer and uses that data to get an unbiased soil moisture level, which is typically only found in more expensive non-smart sensors.
Hugreen founder Clement Lee is a solar researcher and engineer who led major projects for an international solar tech corporation. “I quit my job and started building rooftop gardens in Hong Kong, but wasn’t pleased with the tech solutions available to monitor and adjust irrigation as there was a lot of unnecessary waste,” he said. “So I decided to combine my background in engineering and passion for sustainable farming to create solar-powered technology that makes is possible for everyone to grow.”
Gnome’s app helps gardeners manage their plants remotely. Live updates are provided for each sensor, and users are alerted if the soil becomes too dry, or the water too warm. Users are then able to control the water system or automate timers for the valves based on soil moisture level, ultimately saving them time, money and labor.
The app also teaches gardeners how to grow new plants. “The Gnome app has a comprehensive plant database that can teach you how to optimize growing at your location,” Lee said. “Based on plant type, seasonality and location, Gnome can tell you what parameters would be best for this plant and ways you can achieve them.”
Gnome’s campaign runs from November 8 to December 16, 2016. For a full rundown on their pledges, visit the Indiegogo page.
Hugreen is an agriculture technology startup building high tech precision agriculture IoT solutions for smallholder farmers. Smallholder farmers account for 80% of the food the world consumes each year, yet many are stuck in the old ways of farming, despite changing weather pattern and demographics that threaten our food security. Many smallholder farmers also lack resources and knowledge to use existing precision agriculture tools they desperately need to become profitable. The company’s mission is help farmers deploy simple IoT based irrigation systems to gain better yield per acre while reducing labor and water usage.
