Nearly every aspect of our lives is affected by electricity in some form or fashion, from the way you wash your clothes to the effort you put in at work. From a residential standpoint, you need it to cook, clean, entertain, and live comfortably. For commercial purposes, electricity is used to power the computers needed to keep America moving.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

If you don't have any power in your home, it might be time to check your electrical panel to see if there are any tripped breakers. If you spot a tripped breaker, try your best to switch it over to its original position. If you can't, remember that some breakers need to be flipped to the "off" position before turning it back on. If you don't have any luck, give our office a call. We'll send a trained residential electrician in Ariel to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

If you have an overhead fan in your living room or bedroom, you know how quickly it can accumulate dust. Most homeowners clean up using a rod duster. However, sometimes homeowners accidentally hit the fan direction switch when doing so. But, instead of flipping it "on" or "off," they bump it into a limbo zone where neither direction is selected. When this happens, your overhead fan will not spin. If one of your fans stops working suddenly, this is one of the most common reasons why. If you're sure you didn't hit the fan direction switch, it could be an indication of a larger problem. In this case, call our office for a free phone consultation. We'll troubleshoot with you over the phone and if necessary, send out an electrician.

Kitchen Breaker Keeps Tripping

If your home was built in the last 35 years, chances are it has two 20-amp circuits running to your kitchen countertop outlets. Newer homes will have three circuits. If you're constantly tripping the breaker to your kitchen, it's most likely because you have too many electrical devices connected to the same circuit. To help alleviate this problem, place appliances like coffee makers and toasters on two different circuits. That way, they can share the load.

At the end of the day, your home is your place of solitude and relaxation. But, when you have electrical issues in your home, things can quickly go from peaceful to problematic. Whether you're renovating your home and need a new room wired for power or your panel breaker keeps giving your problems, L&M Electric is here to assist. If you have questions about an issue or need to schedule service, our team is ready to help answer your questions and coordinate the best time for a residential electrician to come to your home in Ariel.

 Smart Home Installation Ariel, SC

Install Surge Protectors

Intense lighting storms can cause powerful surges of electricity that ruin your home's electrical appliances and amenities. Surge protectors installed at your electrical panel can help prevent these surges by grounding the electricity running through your home. They do so by directing it away from your electrical devices. This common solution is inexpensive, effective, and always a better choice than replacing expensive items like TVs and computers.

 Electrical Repairs Ariel, SC

Examine Your Breaker Panel

Breaker panels control the power to your home. When they go bad or are damaged, there's a good chance that you will lose power to most of the rooms in your house. Open your breaker panel and keep a sharp eye out for signs of corrosion and rust. Double-check that each breaker you see flips on and off properly. If you notice corrosion or if the breaker switches won't flip, it's time to get in touch with a residential electrician in Ariel, SC, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

 Electrical Safety Inspection Company Ariel, SC

Test Your GFIs

GFIs, or Ground Fault Interrupters, are similar to surge protectors in that they prevent electrical damage from happening in your home. The primary job of a GFI is to prevent electrical shocks that happen during a ground fault. Because water is a conductor of electricity, GFIs should be installed anywhere that an outlet comes into contact with water. You should try to test your GFIs every month, if possible, to ensure that they are working correctly. When you look closely at your GFI, you will notice a "test" and a "reset" button. Hit the "test" button to trip the GFI outlet and then hit "reset" to restore power. If your outlet resets, your GFI is working as it should. If not, you need to replace your GFI outlet. Because electricity is involved, we recommend hiring a professional to install new GFIs in your home. That way, you know the job is done right.

Replace Outdated Light Bulbs

The right light bulb can add the perfect amount of ambiance to your home. Eventually, however, even the best light bulbs will need replacing. While they don't need checking every month, it's a good idea to inspect all your bulbs at the beginning of the year. If any of your bulbs are dead, you should replace them. You should also consider replacing bulbs that are incandescent with LED lights. LED light bulbs may cost more upfront but use less electricity and are more efficient over the long run.

Schedule a Home Safety Inspection

In terms of preventative maintenance, scheduling a safety inspection for your home's electrical systems should be a high priority. These inspections will shine a light on the electrical features in your home that need to be fixed. Most modern electrical fires are caused by short circuit arcs, defective insulation, or broken wiring. An inspection conducted by a qualified electrician will help determine what needs to be fixed so you and your family stay safe in your home. Your inspector should cover your whole home and will examine common features such as:

  • Breakers
  • Fans
  • Exposed Wiring
  • Electrical Panels
  • Circuits
  • Switches
  • Outlets and More

Cornell University: Commissioned ROTC seniors embrace change, uncertainty

Getting up as early as 5 a.m. several times each week for physical training, and completing military coursework on top of Cornell academics, a dozen seniors enrolled in Cornell’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) were sure to experience college differently than many peers.The pandemic made their challenge even tougher.

Getting up as early as 5 a.m. several times each week for physical training, and completing military coursework on top of Cornell academics, a dozen seniors enrolled in Cornell’s Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (ROTC) were sure to experience college differently than many peers.

The pandemic made their challenge even tougher. But Samuel DeLorenzo ’22, outgoing commander of Cornell’s Tri-Service Brigade, said during his class’s ROTC commissioning ceremony May 27 in Alice Statler Auditorium that his classmates might have benefitted from the early lesson that there’s no one normal life experience, and that they each must master their own fates.

“Looking to the future, the roles each of us will play in America’s defense and conflicts are uncertain,” said DeLorenzo, of Chesapeake, Virginia, before commissioning as an Air Force second lieutenant. “And events that were once unusual, or once in a century, will become ordinary. Truly, the one certainty is that we will all carry on Cornell’s rich military tradition by serving our country proudly and with distinction.”

Later, DeLorenzo’s wife, Air Force 1st Lt. Shauna (Hwang) DeLorenzo ’19, administered the oath of office, as he swore to support and defend the U.S. Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic. His parents pinned rank bars to his uniform’s shoulders. Then he exchanged a first salute with enlisted adviser Specialist Gary Napieracz, offering a silver dollar as a symbol of gratitude to enlisted personnel.

DeLorenzo was one of 19 Tri-Service Brigade members representing five area colleges and universities to be commissioned as reserve officers during the ceremony – the first in two years to be held fully in person, and also livestreamed. Some will pursue active-duty service, others as reserves or in the National Guard.

Air Force Maj. Gen. Dawne L. Deskins, the ceremony’s featured guest speaker, who retired earlier this month as deputy director of the Air National Guard, also encouraged the commissionees to embrace uncertainty and change.

A 1984 Ithaca College graduate, she recalled how changing threats to the nation, from 9/11 to Russia’s recent invasion of Ukraine, had reshaped the nation’s air defense and influenced her career in unexpected ways.

“As you sit here, ready to embark on this journey, you just need to realize that your future isn’t written yet,” Deskins said. “The country is putting great trust in you. And with that trust comes great responsibility – responsibility to always be prepared.”

For Megan Steindl ’22, who commissioned as an Army second lieutenant and will be stationed in Germany, military training made the Ukraine conflict feel more real. She said ROTC overall had helped her build leadership skills and gain perspective through the pandemic.

“The big thing is just having a better attitude and persevering, knowing nothing’s the end of the world,” said Steindl, of Greenwich, New York, who followed two siblings into ROTC and whose parents are veterans.

“It’s such a moment of pride for us,” said her mother, Wendy Steindl, a retired captain in the Army Reserves. “It’s been a big sacrifice for her, but she’s really grown from it.”

Kingmin Lee ’22, who commissioned as a Navy ensign and will serve aboard the USS Tripoli out of San Diego, expects the leadership skills he’s honing to complement his interest in business.

“You learn how to deal with problems in a very constructive way that helps people move forward,” said Lee, of Los Angeles and Overland Park, Kansas. “I think I have the tools that I need to be successful, whatever the situation the Navy puts me through.”

Socrates Kastanos, commissioned as a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps, will report to The Basic School in Quantico, Virginia, then to an assignment yet to be determined.

“When you enter this job, it’s never about you,” said Kastanos, of Bethesda, Maryland. “It’s always about your people and helping them get through their service – either getting promoted or returning them to society as better citizens. That’s what I’m looking forward to most.”

After the ceremony, the newly commissioned second lieutenants and ensigns moved on to Barton Hall – named for Col. Frank A. Barton ’1891, the first Cornellian granted a commission – for service-specific celebrations and to formally sign oaths of office, one day before the Cornell graduates trade their military uniforms for caps and gowns at Commencement.

“We consider them an elite group,” said Lt. Col. Bryan Mundhenk, professor of aerospace studies and commander of Air Force ROTC Detachment 520 at Cornell. “They’re going to find value in service, but we’re going to benefit from their service and from the education experiences that they had here at Cornell.”

Members of the Class of 2022 receiving commissions May 27 were:

Army: Ogechukwu Ezekwenna, College of Agriculture and Life Sciences (CALS); Laura Kubit, CALS; Leigh Anne Neuburger, CALS; Christian Petrilli, CALS; Cloris Shaw-Baker, CALS; Ariel Rebecca Staffin, Cornell SC Johnson College of Business (SC Johnson); Megan Steindl, CALS.Navy: Kingmin Lee, SC Johnson; Tyler Russano, College of Arts and Sciences (A&S).Marine Corps: Socrates Kastanos, A&S.Air Force: Samuel DeLorenzo, A&S; Noah Fox, College of Engineering.Seven other Tri-Service Brigade members receiving commissions were:

Army: Joseph Forster, State University of New York (SUNY) at Cortland; Ryan Fraleigh, Ithaca College; Benjamin Goldberg, Ithaca College; Curt Gustafson, Elmira College; Jeremy Pekoff, SUNY Cortland; Elizabeth Ryan, Ithaca College.Air Force: Shaun Burgos Jr., Binghamton University.

How This Emerging Fitness Brand is Bridging the Gap Between Fitness and Physical Therapy

P.volve, a functional fitness franchise with a Clinical Advisory Board of medical experts, is changing the industry with its methods of achieving a sculpted physique with less strain on the body.

NEW YORK, NY – P.volve, the boutique fitness franchise headquartered in New York (with physical locations in New York, LA and Chicago), provides a leading holistic fitness method unlike any other fitness approach, by bridging the gap between fitness and physical therapy. Founded in 2017, the P.volve Method consists of using physical therapy-inspired functional movement to support members throughout every stage of their lives. The Method highlights using primary muscles and often-neglected stabilizer muscles as one holistic unit, strengthening areas of instability and sensitivity.

Since day one, Julie Cartwright, president of P.volve, says the brand has always been focused on its mission to strengthen and heal, and a major part of achieving that goal involves participation in clinical studies to build credibility behind the brand’s method.

“These studies simply allow us to state clinically that the method does more than just focus on fitness; it helps with pain management and reduction,” said RJ Krone, P.volve’s VP of Studio and Franchise Operations. “We knew clients were coming in and feeling better, but when we participated in a clinical study with the University of Minnesota, it provided solid proof that P.volve could be used as a method for reducing pain.”

“We also built a clinical advisory board, which helped us with building classes that were based on science. That is why our method is age-agnostic — we see people in their 20s to people in their 60s, and they all find both fitness development and pain relief,” said Krone.

The clinical advisory board is comprised of renowned health specialists, including Dr. Amy Hoover, who owns APHysio, a hands-on therapy and wellness practice; Dr. Nima Alamdari, Honorary Professor of Sport and Health Sciences and former Harvard educator; and Dr. Suman Tewari, an obstetrician-gynecologist with more than two decades in the field. They are overseeing multiple clinical trials to determine muscle recovery strategies that strengthen and nourish the body.

Another way P.volve is intermixing holistic wellness with fitness is through its recent expansion of the brand’s “Movement Therapy” content category. This form of exercise has numerous workouts that were carefully crafted by trainers alongside the Clinical Advisory Board to ensure that P.volve’s physical fitness plans create strong physiques, while addressing clients’ pain points such as back pain, hip recovery, knee stability and more. With P.volve being a

woman-focused brand, there are specific programs in the category around female-specific needs, like pelvic floor health, menstrual cycle symptom management, pre- and post-natal workouts, and endometriosis management. Dr. Hoover is spearheading a pilot program with a network of doctors across the nation to recommend P.volve’s Movement Therapy techniques as part of continuous care plans for medical patients.


P.volve is a leading science-backed, holistic fitness Method for women that harnesses the power of functional movement to nourish and heal while it shapes, tones, and strengthens. The Method supports women’s evolving needs and empowers its members to move with ease—for life. Experienced in-studio and virtually, P.volve offers a growing franchise studio footprint, proprietary equipment, an on-demand and live-streaming platform, and a recovery supplement. P.volve launched in November 2017 and was co-founded by Rachel Katzman, in partnership with Camelot Venture Group, whose portfolio companies include 1-800 CONTACTS, SmileDirectClub and Quicken Loans. Available worldwide, P.volve is headquartered in New York City. For more information, please visit and @pvolve on Instagram.

Sami Nickerson: Nursery Knowledge to Plant Sales

Sami Nickerson, a spring 2022 alumna, moved nearly 1,000 miles from Thiensville, Wisconsin to NC State and discovered a new path and enthusiasm for plants. Nursery opportunities came knocking quickly after Nickerson switched her degree to horticulture production systems and entrepreneurship, with a minor in plant biology. As part of the undergraduate program experience, Nickerson, like other undergraduate students, was encouraged to participate in mock interviews and internships. A mock interview translated into a full-time job while attending the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences.

What inspired you to study horticulture?

Before I came to NC State, I thought that I wanted to be a teacher, so I was enrolled in that program for my first semester. It wasn’t a field I was passionate about, so I started my search for another program. I realized that I loved plants and was actually pretty good at keeping them alive back home in Wisconsin, so I decided to give horticulture a try. The first class I took was “The World of Horticulture” with Professor Brian Jackson, and whenever I think about the start of my journey in this industry, I attribute it to him. His class inspired me to keep taking classes and because of this, I discovered that I excelled in all things plant-related and it was something I was really interested in and passionate about.

How did you learn about your internship?

I found my internship through one of Helen Kraus’ classes, which has also been a major part of the success of my journey so far. I set up mock interviews with Biltmore and Pender Nursery to get experience with the interview process. We were encouraged to ask about internships in the mock interviews. While speaking with the Pender Nursery’s local general manager, Ariel Montañez, offered a 10-week internship opportunity in May 2020.

What roles or responsibilities were you given?

I spent 10 weeks in the nursery learning how it operated, and every few weeks, I would switch to a different part of the nursery. I started out as a field tech, then went to potting, then production, propagation, inventory and pest management, sales and shipping, and then I completed my internship project. For my project, I chose to help with the tag room, where all picture tags are kept for the branded material that we sell. I cleaned, painted and re-organized the room to become more functional and efficient for the field techs.

What was the most valuable thing you learned or experienced?

The most valuable thing I learned from this experience was how all aspects of a nursery contribute to the running and operating of the facility. Without one part, the entire business can be impacted. I also really enjoyed getting to work with each group and it helped me get a good idea of how important everyone’s job is. I also made some friends along the way.

How has your internship prepared you for your future career?

After the internship was completed at Pender Nursery, I was asked to stay on as a field tech and I happily accepted. I’ve since moved my way up from field tech to sales. I now work in the South Carolina, Western North Carolina, and Tennessee territories, and I love it. Sales is something I never thought I’d do, but I’m glad Pender Nursery gave me the opportunity because I really enjoy it and I love working with my customers.

Do you want more information about our horticulture programs?

Two years after a fire shuttered the Inn at Versailles in downtown Versailles, Ohio, the newly renamed Hotel Versailles has opened on the site. Owner Midmark Corp., a clinical environmental design company, also purchased adjacent properties to be added to the new hotel.

The boutique property has 30 guestrooms and suites, chef Aaron Allen’s seasonal restaurant Silas as well as meeting and event space for up to 200 guests in the 1819 Room.

“After two-and-a-half years of conceptualizing, designing and building this new property, we are all very excited about the outcome and the commitment from our entire team,” Hotel Versailles’ Managing Director Jack Olshan said in a statement. “Working with Ohio-based Kimberly O Design, we have maintained the historical attributes of the property and its rich hospitality lineage, while crafting a new modern-day atmosphere to bring a dynamic, one-of-a-kind upscale boutique hotel to Versailles for locals and visitors alike to enjoy.”

Industry, machinery and French heritage play into the inspiration of this historic revival design orchestrated by local Ohio firms Kimberly O Design and DK Architect. The hotel’s French-inspired design gives the property a sense of history. Features include the focal-point private dining room table in the restaurant created by Hayrake Furniture Company in Minster, Ohio; the centerpiece window banquette chandelier created by Glass Asylum in Chagrin Falls, Ohio; and locally sourced furnishings and artwork in the hotel, its restaurant and the private event space.

Hotel Versailles also has onsite courtyards and gardens.

Executive Chef Aaron Allen is working with Hotel Versailles’ farmer Katie Bensman to develop the hotel's F&B options. Ingredients for the restaurant, in-room dining and event menus are sourced directly from the property’s nearby Sycamore Bridge Farm, with meats supplied through local partnerships with Winner’s Quality Meats and King’s Poultry Farm.

“As a true farm-to-table experience, each menu at Silas is crafted around ingredients that are seasonally available to source from our 85-acre farm—only minutes away from the hotel,” Allen said.

Hotel Versailles’ 1819 Room can accommodate up to 200 guests. The space is equipped with audiovisual capabilities, noise canceling features, a built-in bar, coat check, infant care room and a private courtyard overlooking Versailles’ town square.

Other venues include an updated fitness center equipped with a Peloton bike. Programming will feature farm tours, cooking classes, special dinners and tastings and outdoor activities.

Hotels have occupied the plot since 1865. The property is close to the Eldora Speedway, Stillwater Valley Golf Club and The Winery at Versailles.

The panel will be moderated by BMI’s Senior VP, Creative Alex Flores and will feature leading composers Kathryn Bostic, Carlos Rafael Rivera and Tamar-kali, who will dive into the creative process and the business side of composing. The panelists will also discuss what it takes to get your music heard, the relationship between directors and composers, and what inspires them to create every day.

“BMI is thrilled to be a part of the Tribeca Festival’s Music Lounge,” said BMI SVP, Creative Alex Flores. “Many of our composers have music in films premiering at Tribeca this year, and we’re excited to bring them together for what promises to be an enlightening conversation and an insider’s look at what it takes to score in film, TV, and visual media.”


KATHRYN BOSTIC: Kathryn Bostic is an Emmy-nominated and award-winning composer and artist known for her work on films, TV, and theater. She is a recipient of numerous fellowships and awards including the Sundance Institute/Time Warner Fellowship, Sundance Fellowship for Feature Film Scoring, Sundance/Skywalker Documentary Film Scoring, BMI Conducting Fellowship, and Best Music in Film by the African American Film Critics Association.

The World Soundtrack Awards awarded Rivera TV Composer of the Year in 2021. His music can currently be heard on season two of Hacks.

TAMAR-KALI: Brooklyn born and bred artist Tamar-kali is a second-generation musician with roots in the coastal Sea Islands of South Carolina. As a composer she has defied boundaries to craft her own unique alternative sound, and in 2017, she made an equally impressive debut as a film score composer. Her score for Dee Rees’ Oscar-nominated Mudbound, garnered her the World Soundtrack Academy’s 2018 Discovery of the Year Award with the work classified by Indiewire as one of the 25 Best Film Scores of the 21st Century. 2019 was also a hallmark year for her work as a composer. In addition to debuting her first symphonic commission, she scored four films total; three of which were featured at the Sundance Film Festival 2020. They include Dee Ree’s The Last Thing He Wanted, Kitty Green’s The Assistant and Josephine Decker’s psychological drama Shirley; the soundtrack of which was named The Guardian’s Contemporary Album of the Month in June 2020. The fourth film was the documentary John Lewis: Good Trouble. In 2022, Tamar-kali also debuted a digital short commission with LA Opera titled We Told These Truths, featuring imagery directed by Dream Hampton. Her music is featured in After Sherman premiering at this year’s Tribeca Festival.
