Women are better at managing their social media pages more responsibly and more securely than men, according to a new study by the Pew Internet & American Life Project, which polled more than 2,000 adults about how they manage their social media profiles. 

Researchers found that both genders have made progress in better using privacy controls and managing their reputations on social networks than just a few years ago — but women more so than men.

Daily Real Estate News | Friday, February 24, 2012

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently released its greenhouse gas (GHG) data report in the form of a new online tool — an interactive map that lets members of the public see what facilities are the largest suppliers of fossil fuels and highest direct emitters of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere.

Users can easily search for emitters by region, down to the street level, to see what type of greenhouse gases have been released as of 2010, at what quantities, and by whom.

Gina McCarthy, assistant administrator for EPA’s Office of Air and Radiation, explained that the new reporting map offers a tool for communities and businesses to find cost- and fuel-saving efficiencies. The

How do rebates work?

Some real estate brokers offer consumers cash refunds or non-cash incentives to encourage them to use that broker’s services. Rebates are typically cash payments from the real estate broker to his or her client after closing. Incentives may include gift certificates, closing-cost payments, or free ancillary services such as home inspections or moving services.

Rebates can save consumers several thousand dollars in a single transaction. For example, if a broker offers to refund one-third of its commission to the homebuyer, the average buyer of a $300,000 home could save $2,500 to $3,000 (based on the 2.5% to 3% commission rates typically earned by the buyer’s broker).
