Hurricane Matthew is rushing East Cost residents out of state. The emergency evacuation in Florida, South Carolina, and Ocracoke Island in North Carolina started on Wednesday, November 5, 2016. Officials warn press public to get emergency supplies kits ready and listen to local emergency agencies' directions. On the latest updates, President Obama visited the Federal Emergency Management Agency headquarters this Wednesday and asked affected areas residents to take evacuation orders seriously as the storm potential can have a devastating effect.

Hurricane Matthew has been declared as the stronger Carribean storm of the last decade. Causing 11 death across the Caribbean, Haiti included, it is expected to become a Category 4 storm near Florida with 15 inched of rain and up to 15 feet storm surge. Category 4 storms on Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Scale is considered the second higher hurricane classification category. It is the second extreme storm after the Hurricane Ike (2008) storm after category 5 Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and Hurricane Sandy in 2012.

On November 4 Hurricane Matthew smashed Cuba where it downed trees, flooded the ground with feet of rain and swamped streets. Along with killing citizens, it tore roofs, sheared walls of houses and dumped up to 40 inches of rain on Haiti, which is slowly recovering from a disastrous 2010 earthquake and a cholera outbreak.

Officials expect large waves along the entire coastline causing flooding. Damaging winds will occur no matter where is the center of Matthew, offshore and landfall. Structural damage is possible as well as power outages in affected areas. The other threats include rainfall flooding and tornadoes.

Planning an outdoor party with friends and familyu

Whether you have been planning a Labor Day or birthday party, there is nothing more welcoming than the great outdoors. There is always a cause to host a nice cookout with fun activities and moon-light parties. Planning may seem like an overwhelming experience, but here are some ideas to make the last-minute preparations easy.


Water Laws In California, Police, Illegal, irrigation, sprinkler

There are no signs of severe drought in California this year, but the state legislators continue to move down the road of water wasting mindset prevention. As a reminder to those residents and businesses who have gotten a little lazy and are back to using as much water as before the drought, water legislations are passing on through eight phases of the mandatory water conservation program. It's Murphy's law: "Just when you think things cannot get any worse, they will." But there is also some good news for Californians. Minimum wage is going up to $11-$12 per hour depending on company size. Women are getting more protection. Illegal businesses of the past are making into respected taxpayers.


Lamps filled with glowing, living algae

Sustainable plant-based sneakers, plastic wrapper-free frozen treats, living algae lamps and spirulina furniture, eco-friendly vintage jeans, and solar panel-equipped speakers sounds appealing to savvy consumers of 2019, but claiming "green" doesn't always mean sustainability. Companies, from large corporations to small start-ups are aiming for the growing demand in organic products and sustainable lifestyle innovations for the less generous reasons than eco-psychologists and nature's enthusiasts. Even the Coca-Cola company loved by millions and according to experts in Imperial College, London containing chemicals "found in rust remover, steel cleaner, and cement" pumps millions of dollars in plant bottles constructed of 30 percent of the bio-based material to meet market demand. To be honest, there are not as many sustainable products as advertised only some of them have a positive net green others offer an elusive idea of being eco-friendly.

As more and more sales are turning from brick and mortar stores to online, it's safe to say most people that buy gadgets online won't even consider purchasing synthetic grass online, unless it's small rugs for patios, garages, utility rooms, or batting cages. But why not? It seems that you can save much more on synthetic turf online than you can when you shop for a lamp or Chromebook.

Dogs love to play in the dirt, and as much as we love them, we have a different attitude towards cleanliness. Dogs mark their territory. Rolling up in mud is their way to show you what they've been up to. For humans, living in an organized environment helps to stay in shape and be more active and healthy. Can you mitigate the differences?
