Three reasons why people search for apartments to rent

Three Reasons Why People Search for Apartments to Rent

Searching for an apartment to rent has never been easy. Although the process is often perceived to be very easy, the truth about it is actually the exact opposite. For example, you may actually be searching for an apartment to rent in an area that does not meet your personal standards. Similarly, you may also be searching for an apartment in an area that is not home to Raleigh nc apartments that can meet your preferred standards. Any of the two situations may frustrate you so much that you may even feel like quitting the entire search process. Unfortunately, no one has power over most of the unforeseen circumstances. For this reason, it is actually not possible to completely do away with the need to search for a new apartment to rent. It may catch up with you at one time or another. The following reasons account for people’s decisions to move from one apartment to another.

Financial constraints account for more than half of the reasons why people move from one apartment to another. This is one of the major reasons why people choose to search for a new apartment to rent. Suppose you were renting furnished apartments nc that are very expensive at the time you just started working, you may choose to search for a cheaper apartment if your job was lost. Losing a job can force a person to begin searching for a new apartment to rent. This is one of the major steps that are taken by most people shortly after losing their jobs. It is an important step that can help you to cope with the loss of a job. There is no need to continue living a luxurious life at the expense of your personal freedom. You may end up being indebted to many people in a bid to meet your personal financial needs.

Sometimes the change of lifestyle can account for the need to search for a new apartment to rent. There are many people whose lifestyle change may cause them to shift to new apartments. For example, a person may be renting a cheap apartment before getting a job. However, the same person may choose to shift to an apartment that is more expensive to rent if one managed to get employment.Some people may choose to shift to new apartments raleigh nc even if there is nothing wrong with their current apartments provided their new apartments are fancier than their old ones.

Another major reason that may account for people’s decision to move from one apartment to another is a change in the nature of the environment. There are times when environmental factors such as floods and weather changes may affect people’s lives so much that they may even see the need to shift to new areas. For example, an area may be on the receiving end of more rainfall than it used to receive in the past. If this change is detrimental to the stability of all the inhabitants in the area, some people may choose to shift to other areas.

Raleigh, N.C. — Rivalry week is here for NC State, and Dave Doeren summed it up best on Monday in his press conference.

“You look at records in these games and they don’t matter,” Doeren said. “It’s always going to be an emotional game where both teams are playing for a lot.”

This series has proven without a doubt that the records – and who is favored – don’t matter. No one knows what will happen in a rivalry game as emotional as State-Carolina.

Last season, North Carolina was favored by 10 points with the Wolfpack limping into the contest in Chapel Hill and on the brink of missing a bowl. What happened? NC State jumped out to a 21-0 lead early in the second quarter, closing out the deal 28-21 in a huge victory for Doeren.

“It’s about these players and these coaches hanging together amid a lot of heartbreaking days and negativity and doubt,” Doeren said after the win. “Guys just kept fighting with each other and for each other and they knew where our program is headed. Today was about mastering ourselves and finding a way to win and doing it against our rival.”

• Inside the Rivalry: NCSU vs. UNC Football

Doeren’s first win in the series came in 2014 when the Wolfpack defeated North Carolina 35-7, this time as a seven-point underdog, with the shutout ending on a meaningless touchdown in the final two minutes.

The Wolfpack rushed for a staggering 388 yards and starting quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who accounted for 167 of those rushing yards, only had to attempt 11 passes in the blowout win. That performance led to Doeren’s memorable remarks on the culture within his football program.

“This is a blue-collar school… a work ethic, hands in the dirt school,” said Doeren. “It was founded by tough people. That is what this football team will be.”

As with rivalries, they all certainly haven’t gone the Wolfpack’s way. North Carolina has won the last two games played in Carter-Finley Stadium, including a 45-34 rout in 2015 when the Tar Heels jumped out to a 35-7 advantage on their way to winning the Coastal Division championship.

We can go on and on, but what makes this rivalry really special isn’t the unexpected outcomes. It is the memorable moments.

Wolfpack, Heels going in different directions after bye weeks

Are you still watching?

Yes, ContinueNo

The first NC State-North Carolina game I covered as a media member was in 2004 in Chapel Hill. NC State marched up and down the field, totaling 577 yards of offense to just 356 for the Tar Heels, but lost the turnover battle 3-0.

The Wolfpack lost 30-24, and ultimately, it was the one yard T.A. McLendon didn’t get that proved to be the difference that night.

For North Carolina fans, that goal line stand ranks right up there with the Gio Bernard punt return for a touchdown in 2012. NC State fans will never forget the Russell Wilson “Hail Mary” in 2010 or freshman gunslinger Philip Rivers catching a touchdown pass in the 38-20 rout in Chapel Hill in 2000.

This season NC State is favored by 17.5 points, easily the largest spread in recent memory. However, the road team has won the last four matchups which should give the Tar Heels, who are riding a two-game winning streak despite being 3-8 overall, added confidence.

Doeren reiterated his thoughts on the rivalry when asked about North Carolina’s struggles this season.

“I don’t really think it matters what their record is in this game. “I know it didn’t for us last year when we played them.”

No one knows what is going to happen on Saturday, but it certainly will be memorable.

Raleigh teen sued NC once over climate change. Undeterred, she’s back.

Hallie Turner was 13 years old when she stood outside a Wake County courtroom telling media crews with cameras trained on her that she planned to continue to fight for action on climate change despite her unsuccessful attempt to sue North Carolina over its environmental rules.

Now 15, Hallie is trying again to get the state Department of Environmental Quality and the state Environmental Management Commission to adopt a rule calling for a sharp reduction in emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases over the next three decades. This time, two other North Carolina teens — Emily Liu, 16, of Chapel Hill, and Arya Pontula, a Raleigh 17-year-old, will join Hallie in petitioning the commission.

With the help of Ryke Longest at the Duke Environmental Law and Policy Clinic, and Our Children’s Trust, a Oregon-based nonprofit focused on climate change, the teens hope to persuade the state to adopt a rule ensuring that by 2050 carbon dioxide emissions would be down to zero.

“It would be a future in which you would not be burning fossil fuels to power your homes,” Longest said on Monday, the day before the teens plan to file their petition.

Not just a passing fancy

Hallie, an Enloe High School student, became interested in reducing greenhouse gases when she was only 9 years old. At the time, she had heard people talk about “climate change” and talked with her parents over a couple of dinner conversations about the meaning of the phrase.

After that, she went to the library and picked up Al Gore’s book “An Inconvenient Truth.”

The book, she said, intrigued and inspired her. Though she wasn’t certain she understood at the time all of what the former vice president had written, she took steps that she could to reduce her own carbon footprint. She rides her bike and the family has solar panels on their house.

In the ensuing years, Hallie worked on the leadership council of Kids vs. Global Warming, a campaign that started in Canada. She has attended rallies and marches in the Triangle and in Washington, D.C. She spoke at the Climate Convergence on Raleigh in 2013 and tries to engage her classmates in discussions.

Hallie and her co-petitioners argue that North Carolina’s state Environmental Commission, 15 members appointed by the governor and state legislators, are obligated under the state Constitution “to protect our natural resources.”

“The reason we’re continuing this,” Hallie said of the petition being filed on Tuesday, “is because this issue hasn’t gotten better. It’s getting worse. …With our president unwilling to sign the Paris Climate Agreement, all the action that’s going to take place is really going to be at the state and local level.”

Concerted national effort

The North Carolina teens’ petition comes as children across the country are turning to the courts in attempts to compel action on climate change.

Groups of children have sued states and the Trump administration using various legal theories to try to force the reduction of pollution in the air and water. One lawsuit filed by 21 young Americans — Juliana vs. The U.S. — contends the federal government is violating their Fifth Amendment rights, depriving them of life, liberty, or property without due process of law. The lawyers have argued the government knew about the dangerous effects of burning fossil fuels and has put its citizens at risk by allowing companies to drill for oil on public lands and mine coal.

Hallie first petitioned the North Carolina Environmental Management Commission when she was 12.

Wake judge rules against teen facing off against NC on climate change

But the commissioners never got to the crux of her request, which included scientific data and more to support her theory for why the state should curb greenhouse gas emissions. A commissioner rejected Hallie’s petition because he said it was incomplete. He also added that North Carolina law prohibited environmental agencies from enacting state laws stricter than federal law.

Hallie challenged the decision and took North Carolina to court.

Mike Morgan, a state Supreme Court justice who presided over the 2015 hearing when he was a Wake County Superior Court judge, ruled against Hallie but not before commending her for taking a stand.

“Regardless of what the decision is, this court has a great amount of admiration for Hallie Turner and her maturity as a young adult to be involved in a process to try to make a difference in the world,” Morgan said from the bench before issuing his ruling.

More science this time

Not everyone was so complimentary of her action, though.

After numerous media outlets shared news about the teen’s attempt to get North Carolina to change its rules, her parents, Mark and Kelly Turner, were amazed by some of the negative comments posted on the sites. Commenters who challenged the idea of global warming accused the adults supporting Hallie of exploitation. Some directed derogatory comments at the teen, too.

Plucky, poised and wise beyond her years, Hallie brushes off the negative messages.

“There’s no merit to those arguments,” she said on Monday. “The science is on our side.”

Kelly Turner said as a parent, “you always worry about anything negative being said to or against your child. I think she has a good head on her shoulders. I’m proud of her.”

Hallie said she hopes the petition put together over much of the past year will be met with a different result than her last one. Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, has voiced his support for the Paris Climate Agreement, highlighting a difference from two years ago when a Republican was North Carolina’s governor and Democrat Barack Obama was president.

Hallie also is glad to have other teens with her.

Liu’s passion for environmental science developed through her participation in UNC’s Climate Leadership and Energy Awareness program and the Alliance for Climate Education’s Action Fellowship program.

"I was exposed to not only the science aspects of the environmental movement but also the climate justice side," Liu said during a break in her swim practice on Monday evening. "Given the impact of the current political climate on the movement, I feel that the time to act is now."

Pontula also became involved with climate change activism while at the Alliance for Climate Education program. As Hallie has, both girls have spoken at city council meetings and elsewhere advocating for similar goals.

They hope the state’s environmental commissioners will incorporate suggestions from their petition into the state’s rules.

“We have a lot more detailed science incorporated into it,” Hallie said.

BC Men’s Soccer Earns a Point in Draw Against NC State

In its last regular season game, BC men’s soccer travelled down to Raleigh, North Carolina for a showdown with no. 22 NC State. Despite losing its starting goalie, Antonio Chavez Borelli, to a red card in the first ten minutes, the Eagles were able to keep the Wolfpack off the scoreboard for 110 minutes and earn a point in ACC play.

Borelli was shown red for deliberately using his hands to control an errant pass from one of his defenders. However, sophomore backup Jack Bacon was able to step in and make two saves, including a diving save in the 109th minute, to preserve the 0-0 draw.

Callum Johnson and Heidar Aegisson each had multiple shots for the Eagles, who were outshot 16-10 by the Wolfpack. BC finished the regular season in 11th place in the ACC, which means they will have to travel to Virginia to take on the Cavaliers in the ACC tournament on Wednesday.

Aqua Nc Works to Find Source of Water Outage in Raleigh Neighborhoods

Please install the latest Adobe Flash Player Plugin to watch this content.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) – Contractors for Aqua North Carolina spent Monday trying to find out what caused the water to stop flowing in two North Raleigh neighborhoods.

More than 800 customers had little to no water pressure for several days.

It didn’t take long for people to notice a problem.

“When it first started, the pressure was down that was the main problem that was 3 or 4 days ago,” said Keith Prillman who lives in one of the affected neighborhoods.

Homeowners were told to stop washing their cars and to boil their water.

“They gave everybody a 40 pack of water when they were worried about the water quality but they’ve since had it tested and let us know there’s no more bacteria so it’s good to drink,” Prillman said.

Aqua NC, who operates the wells in the neighborhoods, is still trying figure out why the problem happened.

“We started to mobilize geologist, engineers, and some of our Aqua professionals to better understand exactly what happened,” said Aqua NC President Shannon Becker. “We’re going to look at the wells, asses what the capacity allowance and hopefully find a way to increase the capacity to meet the demands on a normal basis out there.”

Becker says the lack of rain and amount of water being used didn’t help the situation.

But they have a temporary fix. They hooked up with the City of Raleigh’s water supply.

Aqua NC says it does not know when the problem will be fixed.

“We understand the frustration of our customers, we really are trying to do everything we can as quickly as we can to return them to service,” Becker said.

He says Aqua will be paying for the use of Raleigh city water.

Maintenance costs are lower over the life-cycle of the field and it also…

Nc Offered Foxconn $570m, but Firm Took a Much Higher Deal

A Foxconn facility

Raleigh, N.C. — North Carolina promised tax breaks and other incentives worth more than $570 million to attract a Foxconn electronics plant that could employ 8,800 people, but the state lost out to Wisconsin’s five-times-larger offer, documents released Monday show.

Pennsylvania, Ohio and Michigan were also in the running for the Foxconn Technology Group’s plant, according to a June 12 memo included among state documents released to The Associated Press after a public records request.

The Taiwan-based manufacturer announced in late July it settled on a southern Wisconsin site for a $10 billion flat-screen factory that could employ 13,000 people. Wisconsin politicians last week completed their work on a $3 billion incentive package.

Foxconn officials visited North Carolina twice in May to scout prospects for a plant where 95 percent of the jobs would be on the production line and the overall average salary would exceed $50,000, records show. The factory producing materials used in large televisions, interactive whiteboards and other displays was expected to open in early 2020.dddddddddddd

The company’s list of requested public subsidies isn’t clear. They appeared to be outlined in an almost entirely redacted 23-page letter from Foxconn’s site selection consultants. But avoiding taxes would be a key element in the company’s jobs decision, the May 15 letter indicated.

Foxconn wanted state and local authorities to “provide offsets to all taxes levied at the state and local level,” the letter said.

On June 2, North Carolina submitted its official offer, with an incentives estimate totaling nearly $570 million. The total doesn’t include pending sweeteners, including additional local tax breaks, taxpayer-paid site preparation and extra money from an economic development foundation using the state’s settlement payments from cigarette companies, the state Commerce Department memo said.

The previous day, Commerce Secretary Anthony Copeland wrote Foxconn officials suggesting that if North Carolina were selected as a finalist, state legislators might be coaxed into raising the current limit on a program that provides tax breaks as companies meet job-creating and investment targets over time.

Legislators have sought to encourage job creation without giving away the store and “addressing the many critical, high-priority needs of the state,” Copeland wrote. But “the job creation proposed for these projects is so large that we may need to explore the feasibility or raising or eliminating the cap for a project of this magnitude.”

The Foxconn records were released a month beyond the deadline required by state law. The Commerce Department initially refused, citing Foxconn statements that the Wisconsin factory could be the first of several U.S. locations.

Foxconn in 2013 promised to hire 500 workers and invest $30 million in Pennsylvania, but that plant was never built. The company also has pledged to build factories in Indonesia and India that haven’t materialized.
