In 1996 Brad decided to open his own business- Moore Electrical Service. This business wired many new houses and apartment buildings in the Coralville and Iowa City areas. Rewiring historic homes and working on remodel projects was also a large part of this business.

Ha: California Delegates Change "Hillary" Signs To "Liar"

Hillary LiarThe Democratic Party is still far from unified after a long and drawn-out primary season. Plenty of Bernie Sanders supporters are not about to jump on the Hillary Clinton train, and these California delegates figured out a way to show their displeasure at their party's choice of nominee. They covered up part of the "HILLARY" sign to change it to "LIAR."

A tweet with a picture of the modified sign has gone viral.

Props to them to sticking to their guns and sticking it to the DNC.



Dinesh D’Souza’s Scathing ‘Hillary’s America’ Becomes Top Grossing Documentary of 2016 | Video |

Conservative author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza has done it again.

D’Souza’s newest documentary, “Hillary’s America,” was put out in limited release July 15, just ahead of the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, and in wide release July 22, the weekend before the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. In less than two weeks, the film has raked in more than $5.2 million, making it the top-grossing documentary so far this year, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The 100-minute movie casts Hillary Clinton, who this week became the first female to win a major U.S. party’s nomination for president, and her husband Bill as “depraved crooks” while labeling the entire Democratic Party as “the party of corruption.”

Real gross domestic product increased at an annual rate of 1.2 percent in the second quarter of 2016, according to the "advance" estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the first quarter, real GDP increased 0.8 percent (revised).

How to upgrade to Windows 10: What you need to know | PCWorld

Procrastinators beware. If you’re a Windows 7 or Windows 8.1 user, you’re nearing a big deadline: on July 29, the free period to upgrade to Windows 10 expires. If you intend to upgrade but haven’t actually completed the process, we can help.

For consumers, the choice is a simple one: You’ll be upgraded to either one of two versions of Windows 10: Windows 10 Home, or Windows 10 Professional. (This guide doesn’t cover the upgrade process to Windows 10 Mobile for phones.) Microsoft has also released the official retail pricing for Windows 10, in case you’re building another PC.

During the update process, plan to invest some time in prep work and at least an hour or two in the upgrade process itself. And be careful—some of your applications may be left behind or simply turned off.
