To use the words of prophet and frequent convention attendee Hunter S. Thompson, when the going gets weird, the weird turn pro. This year, the professional weirdness of Comic-Con has taken a twist, as the four-day event will take place exclusively online.

To their credit, organizers are trying to replicate the commercialized fan-friendly confines of the San Diego Convention Center as much as possible: there is the traditional souvenir book featuring a pretty sweet drawing of Ray Bradbury on a T. Rex on the cover that is available for free .pdf download (and featuring click-through advertisements!), and you can print your own badge (sponsored by Amazon Prime Video!) to wear as you sit in front of your screen at home.

If, like us, you’re bored of looking at the same four walls after four months of working from home during lockdown, then it’s time for an interiors update.

Whether you’re working from a corner of your bedroom or in a separate study, no matter how big or small a change you make, adjusting your workspace can do wonders for your productivity and motivation.

At the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was unclear whether or not working from home would become a long-term solution to keep the coronavirus numbers from surging. Now, many offices have announced that they won’t be reopening until at least 2021, and some are even considering a permanent work-from-home lifestyle. Because of this, one this is apparent: home offices are now a must.

One of the most crucial elements to creating a productive workspace at home is having the right chair. If you’re looking for the perfect chair for your remote setup, there are three important factors to consider: comfort, style, and price. If you have the money and are looking to invest in a new chair that you’ll use

With mortgage rates now under 3%, most home loans are due for a refinance, study says

dhita yudha

Few people ever expected to see mortgage rates slide so low, and many homeowners have been caught off guard. Thirty-year fixed-rate mortgages are now averaging less than 3% in multiple surveys — and are offering major refinance savings.

Though mortgage holders have been flocking to get new loans with sharply reduced interest rates, plenty of homeowners are still sitting on mortgages that are now too expensive.

In fact, a new report from mortgage company Fannie Mae says most mortgages with outstanding balances should be refinanced. Maybe that includes yours.

If you have a mortgage that’s closer to 4% than 3%, your monthly mortgage payment is probably hundreds of dollars higher than it could be.

Who needs to refinance?

An estimated 60% of homeowners with mortgages can chop down their interest rates by at least one-half of one percentage point by refinancing, Fannie Mae says.

10 disasters you’d never expect home insurance to cover

A typical home insurance policy protects against all kinds of unexpected threats, like fire, theft and — falling satellites?

Almost 4 million homes in the United States had a claim in 2018, according to the latest data from the Insurance Information Institute. That number would be a whole lot higher if homeowners knew everything they could file for.

Considering how many people are overpaying for their insurance by $1,000 a year or more, they should at least be getting their money’s worth. Here are 10 things you might not realize are covered.

How to Make Your Home Feel Like Your Favorite Coffee Shop

dhita yudha

When I have a project I really need to focus on, I head to a coffee shop—or used to, anyway. There was something about the sights, sounds and scent of these quaint places that helped me to be more productive. Yes, the caffeine helped (my go-to: an Americano with a splash of cream and cinnamon), but it’s not only the boost of espresso-fueled energy that helped me to get more work done in coffee shops. Science shows that novelty situations stimulate the brain: A change in atmosphere can signal an increase in productivity, creativity or inspiration.

While it’s not feasible for most of us to pack up our laptops and head to our favorite coffee shop to get work done right now, you can recreate some of the charm—and brain benefits—of them by incorporating these elements into your home office (or kitchen, or wherever you’re set up right now). As

You’ve found a home you like. Now what?

dhita yudha

When Liang Zhao and her husband decided to start looking for a dream home in late 2018, they were up for the challenge. “We had been renting in New York since 2011, and our parents were like, ‘You both make enough money, it’s time for you to put down some roots and stop throwing money away on rent,” says Zhao, a 32-year-old entrepreneur with a marketing consultancy.

So began the home buying process of speaking to a lender about the size of the mortgage they could potentially afford. Once they decided on the price range, they started putting away funds for the down payment, closing costs, repairs, and moving expenses. 

Referrals from family and friends helped them to find a broker they could trust. “Buying a house is a pretty strenuous process and the broker sees all of our personal financials,” says Zhao. “We wanted someone who truly understood the
