The Best Roundups To Improve Your Home of March 2020

Today is not much better than yesterday. The number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. keeps going up. Americans are being asked to avoid all international travel. Restaurants, bars and other businesses continue to lay off employees as their foot traffic plummets.

But, at the very least, people are doing something. States are taking actions that could help us weather the storm. Families, friends and colleagues are being innovative about ways to connect. Animal shelters are seeing an uptick in foster volunteers, as those working from home crave a snuggle buddy.

Because animals can serve as a boon to our mental health, I'm going to leave this link to a site that streams live webcams focused on them here as today's palate cleanser.

Personally, I enjoy the panda cam.

I hope that helped. Let’s get to the news.

There's a lot of talk right now about how best to help higher education.

Senator Lamar Alexander, the Republican from Tennessee who leads the Senate education committee, is calling on Congress to help those with student loan debt in the third proposed COVID-19 relief bill. He wants to let student loan borrowers defer payments, as well as ensure students can keep their federal Pell Grants.

Some Senate Democrats are pushing even further and calling for a minimum of $10,000 in relief for those with federal student loans. Their plan also calls on the U.S. Department of Education to make payments on all federal student loans throughout the public health emergency period.

A bill that would let veterans keep their housing allowances from the GI Bill if their colleges went online due to the coronavirus is headed to President Donald Trump's desk after passing the House and the Senate.

Here’s a quick roundup of our latest stories, in case you’ve fallen a bit behind (we don’t blame you):

Lilah Burke asked whether moving to pass/fail in this crisis is the right move.

I wrote about how things look right now for open-access institutions.

Kery Murakami talked with advocates and others about the proposed federal stimulus plans and whether they'll be enough.

Students at Pomona College in California are refusing to leave campus, Greta Anderson reports, citing unsafe home conditions.

News From Elsewhere

More data are coming out that show everyone should be concerned about the coronavirus. The New York Times reports that many of the people who are hospitalized with COVID-19 infections are between the ages of 20 and 54.

New York University is asking students to leave their dorms, which would be reoutfitted into makeshift hospital rooms if necessary, according to a Times live update.

Higher education in Australia is experiencing the same abrupt changes as their counterparts in the U.S., Times Higher Education reports.

Percolating Thoughts

This is a time when everyone has an opinion. As journalists, we try not to have opinions, but we've gathered some interesting ones from others.

Feeling stressed? Who isn't? An associate professor of counseling psychology at the University of Wisconsin at Madison has some tips for how faculty members can cope.

An international enrollment director at the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs argues that colleges aren't doing enough for their international students during this crisis.

Remember when the NCAA canceled their basketball tournaments? Yes, it feels years ago. New America has a blog post up on how that move could impact funding that goes toward student athletes' educational needs.

Got any percolating thoughts, or notice any from others? Feel free to send them our way or comment below.

We’ll continue bringing you the news you need in this crazy time. Keep sending us your questions and story ideas. We’ll get through this together.

8 Tips to Help You Learn and Get Better at Your Job

With the escalation of the COVID-19, companies are mandating employees to work remotely until things improve. And while you might feel you’re trapped inside your own home, this is actually a perfect opportunity to work on improving yourself.

Don’t let cabin fever get to you. Make good use of all the extra hours you have to level up your career. Read more >

Replacing the Magic of In-person Sales Meetings (Matt Heinz of Heinz Marketing)

How to Leverage Linkedin as a Powerful Sales Tool (Izabelle Hundrev of G2)

“The trick to leveraging LinkedIn as an effective selling platform is knowing all of its capabilities and how to use them to your advantage.”

10 of the Best Email Subject Lines for Sales Teams (Zack Cronin of RingDNA)

“If you have a prospect who has gone unresponsive, ask them for feedback or how you could improve your performance. Ideally this will not only get them to respond, but will reopen the door to a sales conversation.”

How to Set Up & Thrive with Remote Work (Kathryn Aragon of Sales Hacker)

“Some remote workers routinely work in a coffee shop, but that may not be an option. The whole point of working remote right now is to avoid crowds. You’ll need to upgrade your services at home, so your important calls aren’t cut short by unreliable internet.”

10 Sales Books You Need to Read (Alexandra Adamson)

“Although you may have been in sales for a while, there are always new skills and approaches to try, and reading about sales is a great place to begin. And if you’re new to sales, welcome to an inside look on how to get started effectively.”

Business Development: Three “Must-haves for Success (Josh Winters of The Brooks Group)

“Put the right person in the position, with the right combination of determination, drive, and digital skill, and you’ll reap the rewards. Miss the mark, and you’ll lose ground, in a competitive marketplace where business doesn’t sleep.”

How to Onboard Remote Employees (and Keep Them Around for the Long Haul) (Kat Boogard on the Go Skills blog)

“Tackling the onboarding process for your new employees (especially your remote employees!) is intimidating at best. But, figuring out how to refine your process is crucial for ensuring that you provide the right information and set the right tone.”

Working Remotely: Tips from 100+ Remote Workers & Leaders (Nick Francis of Help Scout)

“If you are working from home by necessity due to COVID-19 or something else, you should expect it to be sub-optimal. It’s quite different from working in a company that’s been instrumented from the ground up to do remote work well — global pandemic or not.”

How to Transition to Remote Work in a Hurry (Wade Foster of Zapier)

“The biggest hurdle for managers and individual contributors a is how to build alignment and demonstrate accountability. Managers want to be sure their reports are getting things done, and employees want to prove to their managers that they’re being productive.”

Managing an SDR Team Remotely During COVID-19 (Matt Bertuzzi of The Bridge Group)

“What you do over the next 20 days will have a huge impact on your company, your culture, and most importantly your people. Be safe, be smart, and be kind out there.”

  • Color Palettes for Your PracticeSo you’re starting your new practice and are trying to figure out how to decorate. Picking out a comfortable couch, a desk, and a coffee mug might be as far as you’ve gotten. It might not seem it, but picking out the right colors, shapes and textures have a significant impact on the client experience. The perceptions of the client-therapist rapport have a determining role in the perceived outcome of counseling, so helping our clients feel as comfortable and calm as possible is important.
  • Anxiety And The Coronavirus: 3 Tips For A Better PandemicIf you weren’t already anxious, it seems maybe the coronavirus could’ve given you a solid push into the anxiety department of your life.

  • 7 Questions to Ask when Starting a Group PracticeThere are many things I wish I had done differently, but the decision to start a group practice isn’t one of them.

March 2020 Real Estate Roundup

The Best Roundups To Improve Your Home of March 2020

Some interesting challenges lie ahead for the economy in general and real estate.  Once things start to become a little clearer people will need to buy and sell homes as part of life moves.  Those who want to take that plunge need to be prepared and the articles in this month’s roundup will help with that.

Real Estate Commissions

When a real estate agent assists a buyer or seller with a real estate transaction they are usually paid a commission upon the completion of the sale or purchase.

  In this article by Bill Gassett he explores how real estate agents are paid when helping out their clients.

  The commission real estate agents charge are negotiable and depending on the brokerage an agent is with sometimes the agent has the authority to set their own commission.  There are other ways agents or brokers can get paid which are explored in this article.

Great Tips For Listing A Home For Sale

For those considering listing their home for sale on the market Kevin Vitali has surveyed a number of great real estate agents from around the world for their opinion on what helps sell a home.

  The tips in this article are pretty much universal for selling a home in any market location as well as any market type.  People will still want to buy homes and there are plenty of buyers ready to make a move.

  Home sellers need to put their best foot forward so that buyers are eager to come and see the house and make an offer.

What Does Mashvisor Offer For Investors

For those looking to invest in real estate there are many websites which attempt to help investors narrow down their focus on particular properties.

  Spark Rental takes a look at Mashvisor and provides input on how investors may benefit from their services.

  Real estate investors need to be thoroughly researching their markets and specific investment properties before making the jump in order to avoid heartache and loss of money down the line.

What Are Millennials Looking For In A Home?

The millennial home buyer is a growing group who are looking to buy homes and put down roots.  Their housing needs do differ a bit as this article by Danny Margagliano points out about millennial home buyers.

  Millennial home buyers want greener, more environmentally friendly homes and in addition are looking for homes with smart features.

  Home sellers can better position their homes for millennials so that when the time does come to put it on the market there is a large group of buyers ready to consider it.

Great Tips For Homeowners To Save Money

Saving money as a homeowner does not have to involve tradeoffs as savings can be had using the tips in this article by Paul Sian.

  An example of a tip is using less credit card for spending and instead focusing in on a budget and making sure money is only being spent the money coming in.

  Spending more money than one has is a surefire way to get further and further behind due to high debt interest rates.  Homeowners can also save money by making sure to avoid fees, refinancing to lower mortgage rates and more as the article explores.

Ten Things Not To Do When Selling A Home

Get prepared for selling a home by learning about what things will hurt the chances of getting a house sold.  In this article by Luke Skar he covers some areas which can definitely doom a house sale.

  When selling a home the idea is to make a house to appeal to as many house buyers as possible to increase the chance of getting an offer.

  As buyers come to visit the home and things are left unfinished, incomplete, dirty, the chances of a buyer wanting to make an offer will be less.

Tips For Getting A Home Organized On A Budget

Whether you want to get a home organized for your own purposes or you want it organized so it looks great for buyers there are cost effective ways to do that as Jeff Nelson points out.

  Organizing things the bedroom, bathrooms, kitchen, closets and more can help bring order to an otherwise chaotic situation.

  A lot of the organizing tips Jeff presents involve no more than one’s own time to make sure everything is where it should to be and easily found.

What Happens When Real Estate Agents Try To Buy A Home?

In this article by Karen Highland she explores the tale of the time her and her husband (who is also a real estate agent) buy a home.

  While real estate agents know how to help clients buy and sell homes how do they handle it when they are literally on the other side of the transaction.

  While there were some bumps along the way both Karen and her husband navigated the home buyer process and came out with a home they both love and she describes the process along  the way.

Setting A Focal Point For Home Staging

Home staging can help improve the look of a home which buyers will appreciate.  In this article by Sharon Paxson she provides some tips on having a focal point for home staging to better draw buyers into the unique aspects of a home.

  A home without focus or left as is can leave buyers confused and wondering if a home is right for them.

  On the other hand where a home has been properly staged it allows buyers to see the actual home for what it is, a living space, and not how someone is currently living in it.

Final Thoughts

While the times may be a bit uncertain if your goal is to own a home or sell your current home planning for that should happen now.  People will still need to move and there will be plenty opportunities to buy or sell a home.  Feel free to share any other insightful articles you may found in the comments below.

Adobe Summit goes virtual, uploads talks to platform

This year’s Adobe Summit was originally set to take place in Las Vegas, but as you may imagine, the coronavirus pandemic changed things. But rather than postpone or cancel the event, the conference was moved online and the company began uploading keynotes and planned talks (known as “innovations”) online for anyone to view.

Adobe also sorted them up into different categories including content, commerce, and data & insights. Ready to dive into some expert discussions on your favourite topics? Visit the 2020 Adobe Summit page and enjoy.

Simo shares timely advice to exclude internal visits from GA

With more and more people working from home, Google’s own Simo Ahava chose to revisit his guide for excluding internal visits from Google Analytics. Essentially, he recognised that there’s a greater opportunity for this to happen as employees work from different networks, which means that IP address exclusion doesn’t exactly apply here.

If your company or agency needs a better way to make sure your own site visits aren’t interfering with your GA reporting, check out Simo’s guide for a quick and simple fix.

Rejuvenation Roundup March 2020

The Best Roundups To Improve Your Home of March 2020

Today might be April Fool’s Day, but COVID-19 is no joke, aging isn’t either, and the combination of the two definitely isn’t – and the people attempting to reverse the hallmarks of aging in order to give us longer, healthier lives aren’t messing around. Here’s what’s happened in the world of rejuvenation in March.

Team and activities

Note for our MitoMouse Backers: All of the swag items have been ordered; however, we will not be able to physically ship anything until we are allowed into the building.

As of now, the shelter-in-place situation will last until April 7, but it could very well extend for an undefined amount of time.

Due to the pandemic, shipping has been halted until the California shelter-in-place order is rescinded, as health is our first priority.

Is Aging a Disease?: Whether or not aging should be considered a disease has always been a common discussion among rejuvenation activists, and Nicola discusses this idea along with its current categorization as a syndrome.

Telomere Attrition: Continuing X10’s series on the Hallmarks of Aging, Giuliano explains telomere attrition and the role of telomeres in cellular division.

Rejuvenation Roundup Podcast

Ryan O’Shea of Future Grind hosts this month’s podcast, showcasing the events and research discussed here.

Research Roundup

Towards a Possible Solution to Diabetes: Washington University researchers discovered a method of restoring beta cells to the pancreas; this method may prove effective in the treatment of diabetes.

Our Immune Cells Damage Our Brains During Aging: Chronic, systemic inflammation (inflammaging) can cause our own immune systems to attack our brains, resulting in damage to fundamental cognitive abilities.

Success in Reprogramming a Supercentenarian’s Cells: At AgeX Therapeutics, researchers used a technique to reprogram cells from a 114-year-old woman, causing them to act young cells again.

Visceral Fat Causes Immune Mediated Cognitive Harm: Researchers from the Medical College of Georgia have discovered that visceral fat causes the cytokine interleukin-1 to infiltrate the brain, leading to inflammation and brain damage.

Mitochondrial Therapy Improves Aspects of Aging in Older Mice: Taking mitochondria from older mice and placing them into younger mice has been shown to reverse multiple aspects of age-related degeneration.

Stem Cell Therapy Effective in 7 COVID-19 Cases: A stem cell therapy aimed at blunting the deadly cytokine storm immune reaction has seen success in seven patients.

Primitive Stem Cells Regenerate Blood Vessels in the Eye: Johns Hopkins researchers have used stem cells to regenerate ocular blood vessel damage caused by diabetes.

Decline of Mitophagy Appears to Accelerate Heart Aging: Mitophagy occurs when cells destroy their own malfunctioning mitochondria; the decine of this process has been shown to lead to cardiac aging.

Senescence Marker Levels Differ Between Tissues: Cells between different tissues become senescent at different times and in different amounts; a study has shown that their marker levels are different as well.

Transplanting Gut Bacteria from Long-Lived People to Mice: Mice and humans share many of the same gut bacteria, and this research suggests that it has similar effects on longevity.

A Double-Edged Sword: Reviewing Cancer and Senescence: Senescence is the body’s defenses against cancer, but this review explains how senescent cells can lead to cancer.

Reversing Cellular Aging Takes Another Step Forward: By rewinding an epigenetic clock, Stanford University researchers have discovered that they can reverse many aspects of cellular aging.

Mitochondrial Transplants Supercharge Heart Cells: Researchers at UC Irvine have discovered that they can give heart cells a temporary boost of energy by transplanting healthy mitochondria into them.

Aging and a High-Fat Diet Change the Gut Microbiome: Excessive fat in the diet is not good for your gut flora – and neither is aging.

Overcoming a Major Hurdle for CRISPR-Cas9 Gene Editing: Previously, CRISPR could only target sites with specific pre-existing markers; a new approach removes this restriction.

AgeGuess, a Methylomic Prediction Model for Human Ages: Using an algorithm to determine the relationship between epigenetic changes and aging, a team of researchers has built upon previous work to develop a more accurate epigenetic clock.

The senotherapeutic drug ABT-737 disrupts aberrant p21 expression to restore liver regeneration in adult mice: Liver is one of the best regenerative tissues in the body, but excessive p21 expression harms this process – and is linked to cellular senescence. This drug has been shown to interfere with excessive p21 expression.

Reduced caloric intake and periodic fasting independently contribute to metabolic effects of caloric restriction: In this study, the researchers conclude that some, but not all, of the metabolic benefits of caloric restriction are achieved through periodic fasting.

DNA methylation clocks as a predictor for aging and age estimation in naked mole rats: Naked mole rats are among the longest-lived mammals and a frequent target of aging research efforts. They now have an epigenetic clock in order to support further studies on mammalian aging.

Probiotics modulate the microbiota–gut–brain axis and improve memory deficits in aged SAMP8 mice: The gut and brain are connected through the gut-brain axis, and our gut bacteria have been shown to have significant effects on the functioning of our brains. This study shows that restoring the microbiome through a cocktail of probiotics is beneficial to cognition.

CRISPR/Cas9-Mediated miR-29b Editing as a Treatment of Muscle Atrophy in Mice: Overexpression of miR-29b leads to muscle atrophy, and this mouse study shows that gene therapy is an effective treatment against this condition.

News Nuggets

Automating Drug Testing With Human Organ Chips: Mimicking human vasculature, Tel Aviv researchers linked together up to 10 tiny organoids in order to automate drug testing.
