Of all the misfired home improvements that Daniel Fries has observed in his 30 years as a home appraiser, aquariums top his list of 2012 loss leaders — home improvements that offered little to no return on investment.


“It’s not a prudent investment,” deadpans Fries, who is based in Atlanta. The tank’s glass fogs, while grimy filters emit an odor of rotting seaweed. Even worse — yes, it gets worse — some owners repurpose fish aquariums as reptile dwellings. And few things send a potential home buyer fleeing faster than the sight of a bull snake in the dining room.


Aquariums top our list of “improvements” with poor return on investment, but every project on that list has at least one thing in common: a profound mismatch between a homeowner’s intent and a neighborhood’s standards.


Local culture, preferences, and market conditions dictate return on improvements. Sink your money into amenities that don’t reflect the norm for your immediate area, and you won’t even gain a 5 percent premium over neighboring homes, regardless of what you spent, says Kevin Cross, owner of the Anchorage, AK-based real estate agency Cross & Associates.

Rome (CNN) -- The cardinals who must pick a successor to Pope Benedict XVI after he steps down on February 28 could meet to make the decision sooner than thought, a Vatican spokesman said Saturday.


The conclave, the meeting which will bring together the 117 cardinals of the Roman Catholic Church, could start before March 15 if all the cardinals are already in Rome, Father Federico Lombardi said.










Lombardi had previously said the conclave was likely to start between March 15 and 19.


But he gave new details Saturday, saying that because the...

A deadly gunfight in restive east Ukraine has shattered a fragile Easter truce, with Russia declaring it was ‘‘outraged’’ at the return to violence in the crisis-hit former Soviet republic.


Three pro-Russian militants and one attacker were killed early on Sunday in a firefight at a roadblock close to the separatist-held town of Slaviansk, a local pro-Kremlin rebel leader, Vyatcheslav Ponomarev, said.

Mobile telephony is known worldwide. We communicate through it with people who are in different parts of the globe.

Besides, we can share photos, send messages and store music. We carry our phones every day and it seems that we cannot live without “texting” what we do.

Perhaps this is the reason why we do not know the components of the cell phone. 50% percent is plastic, 15% is glass and ceramics (which form the screen) 15% is made of copper, 6% of  zinc, silver, chromium, tantalum, 4% of cobalt and  lithium , 4% of carbon, 3% of iron, 2% of nickel and 1% of tin.

Florida State Democratic Senator Dwight Bullard filed an amendment to Senate Bill 296 that would change the title of the amendment to “An act relating to the zombie apocalypse” and filed a separate amendment to modify other language within the bill.


The bill was originally filed last fall by Republican Senator Jeff Brandes and is described as “An act related to carrying a concealed weapon or firearm” during a mandatory evacuation while under a declared state of emergency.


The bill would eliminate the hassle of criminal prosecution for anybody carrying concealed firearms under those conditions, essentially bypassing any licensing requirement of the person carrying the concealed firearm.


Bullard hopes to amend the bill to reflect just what kind of emergency would warrant the carrying of a concealed weapon, such as a zombie apocalypse. While I’m sure he’s just doing this to make a point about the vague language of the bill, it’s entertaining that he chose the least likely scenario to occur in Florida, bath salts not withstanding.


After all, we know Florida is just going to detach and sink into the sea.

Researchers from Harvard and Stanford universities published three studies today showing that substances in the blood of young mice rejuvenate the muscles and brains of older ones. A previous Harvard study suggests the same happens to their hearts.

Serious questions have been raised about the Alberqueque Police Department after helmet footage from the fatal shooting of a homeless camper in the foothills surfaced.


The video, shows 38-year old James M. Boyd being shot and killed, in what appears to be the process of his complying with police officers.


New Albuquerque Police chief Gorden Eden says the video shows that officer involved shooting is justified.


Warning: The video below is graphic and contains images not suitable for all viewers. Viewer discretion is advised.


The two officers who fired shots remain on leave. Boyd’s family has yet to be located.

Last September three daredevils (or crazy people, depending who you ask) jumped off 1 World Trade Center, 1,368 feet up in the air.

But this thrilling and beautiful video comes at a cost…

Police Commissioner William Bratton had the following to say on the situation:


“These arrests should send a message to anyone thinking about misusing a landmark this way. Being a thrill-seeker does not give immunity from the law.”

Sure, singing telegrams are not as popular as they used to be. If you're looking to surprise someone, though, or just put the spotlight on him or her for a couple of minutes, look no further. If you really want to ramp up the shock, you can have a singing telegram delivered on live television.


That's what happened to weather and traffic reporter Amy Aaronson of WLTX-TV in Columbia, South Carolina.


After finishing the forecast and traffic report, Aaronson is visibly shocked as a loud voice is heard from offscreen. Then, "Captain Telegram," the man hired to sing her birthday wishes, bursts in front of camera with her and starts performing his routine.

We all love to send quick text messages, right? Texts can show our undying love, growing devotion for someone, and anticipation about an upcoming great time with a date.


However, there a few texts you can send that will have a man running for the door instead of bringing him closer to you. Below are seven types of text messages that no man really wants to see… ever.

A 12-year-old recently had quite the show-and-tell at school: According to the Detroit News, she brought a backpack stuffed with $20,000 in cash.



Police, who declined to name the girl, said the student received it from a child who lives across the street from her in Taylor, outside of Detroit.


Word got around at the local Sixth Grade Academy that the girl was handing out cash to her friends. That’s when the principal stepped in and called the police.

This Saturday is World Water Day – a day the United Nations and its member countries have devoted to promoting sustainable management of the world's water resources. It seems fitting that it falls in March, women’s history month, because the lives of women and their families are inextricably linked to access to clean water and sanitation.
