House Minority Leader Patrick Neville won’t seek re-election for top GOP spot

Colorado House Minority Leader Patrick Neville announced Friday that he won’t seek to retain his House leadership post, months after news reports that he would be challenged for the seat and likely lose it.

“There’s been a lot of folks that have been, quite frankly, spending all their time trying to run against me instead of … helping Republicans win elections,” Neville said.

The Castle Rock Republican said he plans to instead focus on getting reelected to serve his district for the next two years. He also plans to complete the last year of his executive MBA at the University of Denver.

The divide has grown between supporters of Neville, who holds far-right views and associates with groups like the Rocky Mountain Gun Owners, and Republicans who say the party needs to make changes to get elected in an increasingly blue state.

Hugh McKean, R-Loveland, had previously announced he would

How to spot bathroom problems during a virtual tour

Bathrooms are usually always smaller spaces within a home, and so it’s possible that home shoppers could miss some important problems while checking out a property through a virtual tour.

Some problems might require further inspection, and so it’s up to real estate agents to act as their clients “in-person eyes” while searching for a property online.

A recent article in realtor.com highlighted several common bathroom problems that aren’t easily spotted during a virtual tour.

For example, it’s almost impossible to take a look under the bathroom sink while using a platform such as Zoom. It’s unlikely the agent will offer a look there, and the buyer may well not even think to ask. So agents are advised to check for water damage inside the cabinets that are usually underneath the sink.

“The bathroom is the number one place for water damage, so it’s a good idea to check under

The Trump administration’s resistance to contact tracing since the president tested positive for Covid-19 reflects a calculation that there’s little political upside in highlighting this close to the election the number of people at the pinnacle of US power potentially exposed to the virus by him, say health experts and political analysts.

Masks and contact tracing – used effectively in China, Taiwan, South Korea, Singapore and elsewhere – are proven tools in breaking the chain of infection in lieu of a vaccine, medical experts say. But their success can depend on many other factors.

Public health experts have traditionally focused on the profile of the virus and therapies to combat it.

Concern rises for White House residence staff as their workplace emerges as a virus hot spot

His uncle, John Johnson, was also a butler, and the flouting of safety protocols that has made the White House a coronavirus hot spot has also put the career civil servants who work where President Trump and first lady Melania Trump live at risk of exposure. It has Allen puzzled and incensed.

“I would be begging my dad and uncle, ‘You need to get the hell up out of there,’ ” he says. “It’s like, ‘Get out! Get out!’ ”

The White House residence staff members are largely Black and Latino, and often elderly, according to Kate Anderson Brower, who compiled a trove of interviews with former staffers for her book “The Residence.” Numbering 90-some full-time ushers, butlers, housekeepers, valets, florists, engineers and cooks charged with maintaining the historical house and creating a comfortable home free from prying eyes, they work more closely with the first family than perhaps anyone

Can Lowe’s Overtake Home Depot’s Top Spot?

Where do you shop for home improvement projects? For many Americans, increasingly, the answer is Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW). Home Depot (NYSE: HD), a Dow Jones Industrial Average component and the largest U.S. home improvement retailer, benefited enormously from the recent positive trends in home improvement. But competitor Lowe’s did even better, and is right on its heels for the top spot. Can Home Depot keep its lead, or is it in danger of being overtaken by Lowe’s?

Why Home Depot needs to worry

Home Depot has been the leading home improvement chain for decades, being the first to create and expand its big box stores across the U.S. Annual sales came in at more than $110 billion in 2019, a 2% increase over the prior year. The company is admired as solution-driven and agile, and as it helps people across the country with do-it-yourself building projects, sales continue

This 95-year-old Peninsula company found a sweet spot during the pandemic: Your kitchen

By Alicia Wallace | CNN Business

When the Covid-19 pandemic hit the US, some businesses held fast and hunkered down. Torani, the 95-year-old company that makes those colorful bottles of flavored syrup at your local coffee shop, didn’t have that luxury.

Torani needed to follow through on a plan that had been years in the making: a relocation of its headquarters and manufacturing operations from South San Francisco to a brand new building across the Bay. The Covid-19 pandemic, however, turned what was already an ambitious and expensive undertaking into a dramatic exercise in operational gymnastics.

Torani was slated to start its move in March to a spacious, 327,000-square-foot San Leandro building that would house its offices and state-of-the-art production lines. It also would serve as a Willy Wonka-esque, tourist-friendly “Flavor Factory” with a coffee-making “receptionista,” a “customer play area” to try some of the 150-plus flavors, and a

13 Hidden Problems in a Bathroom You Might Not Spot on Video

It might be easy to gloss over the bathroom when you’re touring a home in person—but it’s even easier to do so when you’re viewing it by video, as many of us are doing in the age of the coronavirus. It’s a smaller space than most in the house, and, at first glance, there’s not much to take in: toilet, shower, vanity—that’s all you need, right?

But the fact that the bathroom’s purpose is purely functional—the place to go when you go—is what makes it such a crucial space. And one you shouldn’t rush through in any tour.

Experts say there’s a whole lot more you should be looking at in the bathroom besides the sleek vanity and sparkling bathtub. Make sure to inspect—or ask your agent to scope out for you—these potential problem areas.

1. Funky odors

As your agent shows you the bathroom, look out for an

How to Clean Your Bathroom in 4 Easy Steps

Step 1- Clear surfaces

Before you do any spraying or scrubbing, clear out all the things laying on these surfaces- toothbrush, lotion and shampoo bottles, cotton ball container, etc. The point is to be able to spray and wipe without worrying about your bathroom cleaner getting onto everything else. You should also move any dirty towels or laundry out of the bathroom, as well as trash cans. Once you’ve cleared everything away, you can start spraying your surfaces with a gentle cleanser.

Step 2- Spray and wipe

Using gloves, wipe down your sink and counter, making sure you get behind and under the faucet. When you’re spraying and wiping, you want to make sure you’re spraying onto the surface, not the cloth, because you want to let the ingredients of the bathroom cleaner work their magic before wiping it away.
