Department of Energy has advice on home energy audits (Theres a lot more to it than you probably think). Dont be victimized by fly-by-night companies. Finding contractors by using ads in your local newspaper or phone book could be inviting trouble. Its much better to get names of reliable companies from friends or relatives. Be especially dubious if a contractor contacts you. Dont be lured by claims that the company can offer you a special deal because its working nearby or has material leftover from another job. Check the companys reputation.

Building fail sheds light on N. Korean priorities – Yahoo News
PYONGYANG, North Korea (AP) Pyongyang isn’t just any North Korean city. So when a 23-story apartment building under construction collapsed in the center of the showcase capital in May, officials faced a bona fide emergency. Their response was in some ways predictable: a grudgingly slow and piecemeal confirmation, followed by scapegoating and spin. Three months later, they still refuse to give a death toll, saying only that it was “serious” and that leader Kim Jong Un “sat up all night, feeling painful after being told about the accident.” But in a country where acknowledgment of failure is rare, experts say North Korea’s handling of the collapse also shines a light on how it is grappling with some deeper issues, including its image among foreign investors, the limits on its control over information and the need to address, at a public level, the concerns of its citizens. Well aware of how far North Korea lags behind its more prosperous neighbors, Kim has singled out development projects as a key priority since he assumed power following the death of his father in 2011. This week, while visiting a block of apartment houses being built in Pyongyang for university teachers, he reportedly said the nation’s soldier-builders are “racing against time in ushering in a great heyday of building a rich and powerful country.” Nowhere is that race more feverish or the political stakes higher than in Pyongyang. Home to more than one-tenth of North Korea’s 24 million people, Pyongyang has always been the focus of development and the prime beneficiary of state funding.
