This Couple Made A $400,000 Profit After Renovating A Historic Home- Here’s How

This couple bought and renovated a 109-year-old mansion for less than $500,000. Now it’s worth $900,000–take a look inside – CNBC

Abby and her husband Trey bought a dilapidated house that needed $268,000 worth of renovations. They spent most of their funds on preserving the home’s original elements, like its 109-year-old wooden floors.

They found the home on Zillow and consulted a variety of contractors to see the work that they would have to complete in order to make the mansion livable again,

The home had previously belonged to the Page family, who were wealthy industrialists in the area that founded several towns in North Carolina. Their house looked like a time capsule and was near condemned when Abby and Trey Borthers bought it.

Abby and Trey Brothers found the listing for the 109-year-old Page Mansion on Zillow before the couple moved in 2018. They transformed the vacant house into their DIY dream home.

Abby and Trey saw a listing for a mansion online, and were attracted to its history. When they went to see the home in person, they found remains of the history scattered throughout the vacant mansion.

Trey saw potential in the brick home, but knew it needed major renovations. He and his wife Abby spent $268,000 renovating the Page Mansion, keeping much of the house’s old features, furnishing and even furniture.

The Brothers family has lived in the renewed mansion for three years. They are still finishing up some projects.

Woman gets 15 months in prison for punching flight attendant – The Associated Press

Vyvianna Quinonez, 29, pleaded guilty to interfering with flight crew members and attendants and was ordered to attend anger management classes or counseling for three years.

A flight attendant asked a passenger to wear her face mask properly, fasten her seat belt and stow her tray table. The passenger pushed the flight attendant, punched her in the face and head, and grabbed her by the hair.

Vyvianna Quinonez, 29, broke the flight attendant’s teeth and caused bruises and a cut under her left eye. In addition to imprisonment, she was also ordered to pay $26,000 in restitution and $7,500 in fines.

Quinonez was originally released on bond following her guilty plea, but was arrested nine days later for driving under the influence. She has since spent nearly four months behind bars.

Quinonez pleaded guilty to interfering with flight crew members and attendants and was ordered to attend anger management classes or counseling for three years.

Southwest’s vice president of Inflight Operations wrote that the incident has negatively impacted the workgroup and caused fear to come permanently into the workplace.

Everything You Need To Know About The Monkeypox Outbreak

How to protect yourself against monkeypox and what to do if you catch it – CNBC

A recent monkeypox outbreak has been spreading across the U.S., Europe, Australia, and the Middle East, with the majority of cases spreading through sex.

In 2019, the London-based think tank Chatham House convened a meeting to discuss the risks of monkeypox, including sexual transmission. The current outbreak appears to have taken off when the virus began to transmit among men who have sex with men.

The WHO said it was unlikely that mass vaccinations would be required to combat the outbreak, but urged people to practice good hygiene and safe sex to help control its spread.

In 2002, Anne Rimoin, an infectious diseases epidemiologist at the University of California Los Angeles, said that people who study poxviruses knew that monkeypox could spread. Monkeypox can be transmitted via surfaces and materials, so avoid contact with sick animals and humans.

Emmanuel Andre, professor at medicine at Belgium’s Ku Leuven University, said the general public does not need to start avoiding public areas, taxis, shopping and hotels.

Monkeypox symptoms include fever, headaches, muscle ache, swelling and back pain. Rashes and lesions emerge one to five days later.

Monkeypox can be easily confused with other diseases, so medical confirmation is important. The illness is typically mild and people recover within 2 to 4 weeks.

Lawsuits Stirring Over Social Media Addiction In Kids

California Parents Could Soon Sue for Addiction to Social Media – PetaPixel

Kids are growing up with easy access to technology and constant updates on devices. As a result, the ages of social media users are getting younger and younger.

Although most social media platforms require a minimum age for signing up, there’s no real regulation to help ensure that young kids are steering clear of these apps.

A major problem following these young users is a spike in addiction to social media. Parents are at a loss trying to figure out how to help their kids and give them tools to escape the grip of the virtual world.

California lawmakers passed a bill that would allow parents to sue social media companies for $25,000 per violation if their children become addicted to their products. Business groups have warned that social media companies would cease operations for children in California rather than face the legal risk.

The Assembly passed a bill protecting children from social experimentation on Monday. The bill now heads to the state Senate for hearings and negotiations.

The bill would let parents sue social media companies for harming children who become addicted to their products. The bill gives social media companies two paths to escape liability in the courts: remove addictive features by April 1 or conduct regular audits.

The bill only applies to companies that have a minimum of $100 million in gross revenue in the past year.

Author of ‘How To Murder Your Husband’ Is Guilty of Actual Murder

‘How to Murder Your Husband’ author Nancy Crampton Brophy guilty of hubby’s murder – New York Post

A romance novelist was convicted of killing her husband after months of quietly plotting the perfect crime.

Nancy Brophy, 71, was convicted of second-degree murder for shooting her husband, Daniel Brophy, in his workplace, where there would be no cameras or witnesses. She is scheduled to be sentenced June 13.

In 2011, Ms. Brophy speculated about various methods of murder, supposing that knives were too personal, poison was too traceable and hitmen were too untrustworthy.

Ms. Brophy bought a ghost gun kit and a handgun, and then an extra slide and barrel on eBay. She said she was writing a story about a woman who gradually acquired gun parts to turn the tables on an abusive partner.

On the morning of June 2, 2018, Mr. Brophy had gone to the Oregon Culinary Institute to teach classes when he was shot and killed. His wife said she had no memory of driving her minivan around the time of the killing.

The prosecution argued that only Nancy Brophy could have committed the crime, and that the defense’s case was based on “suspicion” and “conjecture”. The defense also argued that perhaps a homeless person in the neighborhood could have committed the killing.

Although friends and family members testified that the Brophys appeared to have a strong and collaborative relationship, prosecutors said Ms. Brophy had a financial incentive to kill her husband.

Prosecutors discussed the themes of Ms. Brophy’s “How to Murder Your Husband” blog post during questioning, and concluded by asking if she believed anyone could do it. Ms. Brophy said she believed anyone could do it.
