The Atlantic hurricane season officially runs from June 1 through November 30 each year. Tropical cyclones in the North Atlantic Ocean are called hurricanes, tropical storms, or tropical depressions. In addition, there have been several storms in history that have not been fully tropical and are referred to as subtropical storms or subtropical depressions, meaning they aren't as damaging (though they still can be devastating).

Property owners across the country need to be in high alert both during the Atlantic hurricane season and in the months leading up to it to avoid devastating loss and minimize damage. Over the past five years, the U.S. remodeling industry has grown by 6.4%, earning a revenue of $99 billion in 2018. Though plenty homeowners look to remodeling for simply improving their home's aesthetics, those who live in the path of major storms require remodeling projects to better secure the structural integrity of their homes. In addition to securing your home or business for stronger winds and intense weather, being on the lookout for upcoming storms and identifying how they will be referred to is crucial, as well.

Construction is an extremely dangerous field that can lead to serious injuries — even fatalities. In fact, 15 out of every 100,000 construction workers die as a result of construction-related accidents. Though the dangers are certainly amplified in industrial settings, do-it-yourself home construction and renovation jobs can lead to life-altering injuries, as well.

According to a recent survey, about 51% of homeowners are planning on either beginning or continuing home renovation projects. Working with trusted contractors is generally recommended, especially for more advanced tasks, but plenty of homeowners still enjoy getting their hands dirty and doing the work themselves. During any kind of household renovation project, however, it's imperative that you're being as safe as possible.

Here are some dangerous things that can occur during household renovation projects:

The quintessential American dream involves having a house with a beautiful lawn and having man's best friend by your side. Unfortunately, many homeowners find that these two elements don't always go well together. Pups like to dig in the dirt, roll around in the grass, and mark their territory -- all of which can wreak havoc on your lovely landscaping. But the truth is that you don't have to choose between the nice yard and the loyal dog. There's good news for the majority of American households that have at least one pet: your pup and your property can coexist in harmony, as long as you're strategic about the way you landscape. Here are some essential elements you'll want to include in your dog-friendly yard.

When it comes to taking care of your family, one of the main things you want to do the right way is handling their medical needs. Most people recognize the importance of having a trustworthy doctor, but what about your dentist? Believe it or not, one in five U.S. children go without dental care. Dental care can be regularly looked over when it comes to maintaining overall health, but it's essential for keeping your kids as healthy as they can be.

So how do you find a dentist you can trust to provide the best care possible for your family? Dentistry is considered one of the ten most trusted and ethical professions in the United States, but you want the absolute best for your kids and loved ones; how do you sort through them all? Here are a few things you should consider when selecting a new family dentist.

A recreational vehicle (RV) is a motor vehicle or trailer that includes living quarters designed for accommodation. According to RVIA, there are as many as 30 million RV enthusiasts, including RV renters across the United States. Motorhomes, camper vans, caravans, fifth-wheel trailers, truck campers, pop-up campers, and more are widely used across the country for RV purposes.

Another popular vehicle for decades is great for recreational purposes, as well: Jeep. In 2018, according to a Statista survey, 2.25% of respondents between the ages of 18 and 29 owned a Jeep. These vehicles are great for off-roading across muddy terrain as well as commuting to and from corporate office jobs. Recently, RV enthusiasts have been able to transform their Jeeps into powerful vehicles that not only drive well and look cool, but are livable during camping trips and other outdoor excursions.
