Electricity – it’s one of the most important innovations in the history of humankind. It’s hard to imagine life without electricity, and for good reason. 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.

Your Residential Electrician

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 Snellville to your home to fix the problem on-site.

Panel Breaker is Tripped

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.

Overhead Fan Stops Working

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 Snellville.

Tips to Save Money and Maintain Your Home’s Electrical Systems

Unlike some of our competitors, who are reluctant to provide any information that might prevent them from making a buck, L&M Electric is all about empowering our customers. If we can offer sound advice that will educate our clients and help them save money, we have no problem doing so. That’s why we have put together some helpful tips and tricks for maintaining your home’s most common electrical systems. Because, at the end of the day, a little knowledge can go a long way when it comes to your family’s safety.

Install-Surge-Protectors

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.

Examine Your Breaker Panel

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 Snellville, GA, who can inspect your breaker panel and recommend upgrades if necessary.

Test Your GFIs

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

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

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

Play-by-Play: Andy Demetra | Analyst: Randy Waters

THE FLATS – Georgia Tech continues its season-opening three-game homestand Friday night when it hosts Stetson for a 7:30 p.m. tip at McCamish Pavilion. This is the second of three straight home games to open the 2021-22 season.

Tech (17-9, 11-6 ACC last season) is coming off its first ACC championship season since 1993 and its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2011. The Yellow Jackets welcome back five of their top seven scorers, including ACC Tournament MVP Michael Devoe (Orlando, Fla.), senior forward Jordan Usher (Canton, Ga.), senior guard Bubba Parham (Snellville, Ga.), senior forward Khalid Moore (Briarwood, N.Y.) and junior guard Kyle Sturdivant (Norcross, Ga.). Those returnees are bolstered by the transfer of guard Deivon Smith (Loganville, Ga.) from Mississippi State and a freshman class ranked No. 28 in the nation.

The Jackets opened their 107th season of basketball Tuesday night with a 72-69 loss to Miami of Ohio at McCamish Pavilion. Tech does not leave the state of Georgia to play until Dec. 18, when it travels to Phoenix, Ariz., to play Southern California.

The Hatters from Deland, Fla., members of the Atlantic Sun Conference, went 12-15 overall last season and finished 7-9 in the conference. Similar to Miami, Stetson returns its top eight scorers from that team, including four players who started at least 23 of the teams’ 27 games.

The Hatters downed Florida Memorial, 74-67, Tuesday at home in their season opener.

Friday’s game will be streamed live online via ACC Network Extra, available on the ESPN app. Radio coverage will be on the Georgia Tech Sports Network by Legends Sports and flagship station WCNN (680/93.7 the Fan), as well as on satellite radio (SiriusXM app 968).

SERIES VS. STETSON

Georgia Tech and Stetson are meeting for the third time in men’s basketball, and for the first time since 1973, when the Hatters defeated the Yellow Jackets 81-70, at Alexander Memorial Coliseum, Tech’s former on-campus home.

The first meeting took place during the 1919-20 season, a 44-33 Tech win that took place at the Luckie Street YMCA, which served as the Jackets’ home court that season.

The Yellow Jackets are 10-7 all-time against members of the Atlantic Sun Conference. This is Tech’s first game against an A-Sun team since December of 2018, an 87-57 win over Kennesaw State.

The Tech-Stetson game is part of a “multi-team event,” a four-team round-robin that included Friday’s game against Miami and next Monday’s game against Lamar. Miami, Stetson and Lamar will all play each other as part of the event.

LAST TIME OUT

Georgia Tech went on a 16-3 second-half run to take a seemingly comfortable seven-point lead, but an experienced Miami (Ohio) squad scored the game’s final nine points and came away with a 72-69 win over the Yellow Jackets in the season opener for both teams on Tuesday night at McCamish Pavilion.

Georgia Tech trailed by as many as six points early in the second half, but used a 16-3 run to take a 55-48 lead midway through the closing period.

The Yellow Jackets maintained the advantage throughout the final 10 minutes and led 69-63 with less than two minutes to go. However, Miami made three-straight shots over the next minute to cut the Jackets’ advantage to a point at 69-68. After Tech missed pair of shots on the other end, Miami’s Dae Dae Grant missed a jumper in the lane but Mekhi Lairy grabbed the rebound and hit the put-back to give the RedHawks a 70-69 lead with 12 seconds remaining.

Tech’s Michael Devoe led all scorers with 26 points on 8-of-18 shooting, including 4-of-6 from 3-point range. Jordan Usher scored 14 points and Rodney Howard added 10 to round out three Yellow Jackets in double-figures. Howard added a game-high 13 rebounds for his first-career double-double, while Usher came up just one rebound short of a double-double with nine boards.

Georgia Gwinnett College Agonizing Over American Arachnids: Halloween Ushers Sticky Spider Craze

October 26, 2021

Joro spiders might be the newest fixation of the Southeast, but spiders in general have held a special place in our hearts for centuries. Different regions of the U.S. harbor their own species of spiders. From the enormous tarantulas of the southwestern deserts to the wolf spiders that dwell in basements, these creatures come in all shapes and sizes. Dr. Christopher Brown, professor of biology at Georgia Gwinnett College (GGC), shines light on these fascinating arachnids' sudden burst of activity in the early months of fall.

"With insects, summer is all about growth. They start off small, hatching or emerging from their hiding places, and they just focus on eating and growing as quickly as possible."

Spiders, naturally, feast during these months, with such an abundance of food supply. So, as we approach fall, spiders have been growing, too. And now that we've reached the final months of their breeding cycle, their activities grow more noticeable, which is why they grow to be such a horror icon during that period of the year.

What's interesting, then, is that even though we're generally horrified of walking into webs or seeing their many feet pitter-patter across the floor, we celebrate them. Spiders are a staple decoration for the Halloween season. Walk into any Halloween celebration store, and you'll be met with a bunch of plastic skeletons and a huge black spider hanging over the doorway.

We love spiders, even if we're terrified of them. They infiltrate our stories and haunt our dreams. Even something as recent as 2019's "It: Chapter II" has the ultimate battle focusing on what is essentially a giant spider. Myths like Arachne's weaving with Athena in Greek mythology show our explanations for their interesting web-weaving.

Dr. David Ludden, professor of psychology, said our fascination with them actually stems from our fears.

"It's the adrenaline rush, basically. Adrenaline prepares us for action. It can be fight-or-flight, but it also drives us to pursue things that are exciting." He associates our biologic response to the innate knowledge that these things are venomous. They might not all be able to kill, but they'll definitely hurt.

Ludden goes on to explain that our fixation with things that go bump in the night stems from a kind of generalized effort to associate things that scare us with things we find entertaining. That's how Halloween overtook its spiritual predecessor All Saints Day, held on Nov. 1, as the de-facto biggest autumnal holiday in the U.S.

As we get closer to the winter, spiders begin the final moments of their breeding cycle. Some spiders, like the tarantula, can live for decades, so it's just another year for them. But Joro spiders, a Georgia newcomer known for their large broods of up to 1,500 spiderlings, will spread even further next year. Hopefully, their numbers stabilize as they integrate into the ecosystem.

With the recent craze in Georgia about these new spiders, Brown cited that old saying: "They're more afraid of us than we are of them." All spiders might be venomous, but only a few local spiders are dangerous, notably the black widow and the brown recluse.

Brown offers his final thoughts on the spider's sticky place in our culture, calling them "charismatic fauna."

"Charismatic megafauna, your pandas and your tigers, are those big animals that people, instead of registering that they're threatening and scary, instead give personalities and attention. We're fascinated by them. So, with spiders, you get a sense of that on a much smaller scale. They're charismatic fauna – living creatures that hold their own place in the environment that we've given personalities to, and it's not always a good one."

Brown and Ludden both agree on one thing.

The spider is a misunderstood but vital part of global culture.

Openings of Market by Macy's locations in Snellville, McDonough set for end of October

It’s no trick, but shoppers might find it to be a treat: Macy’s officials announced this week that their new Market by Macy’s “off-mall” store format will open in Snellville and McDonough at the end of October.

Both stores were previously announced as opening sometime this fall, but Macy’s officials confirmed on Tuesday that the stores are currently slated to open a couple of days before Halloween, on Oct. 29. The Snellville store will be located in the Presidential Markets shopping center while the McDonough store will be located in the South Point shopping center.

They will be the first Market by Macy’s locations in the Atlanta area.

“We are thrilled to bring our new store format to the Atlanta community, giving customers access to a unique shopping experience,” said Marc Mastronardi, chief stores officer of Macy’s. “Market by Macy’s will focus on discovery and convenience for our customers, while offering curated Macy’s merchandise with a local flair.”

Market by Macy’s is a smaller format than Macy’s larger full-line stores that are typically found in malls. Each store ranges from 30,000 to 58,000-square-feet in size, and Macy’s officials said they offer “an even more curated assortment of Macy’s branded fashion” than the tradition mall stores provide.

Macy’s said the new store format, which debuted in Texas in 2020, has an open environment designed to make it easy for shoppers to browse and purchase items. Items sold at the stores will include men’s, women’s and children’s apparel, home products, beauty products and “giftables.”

The Macy’s brands that will be offered at the stores include INC International Concepts, Bar III, Hotel Collection, And Now This and Oake. The new stores will also offer the “Trend Pavilion,” which highlights fashionable trends, must-haves and new merchandise for each season.

The McDonough store is also slated to offer the Macy’s Workshop retailer vendor development program during the holiday season this year, with vendors such as: Hawaiian-inspired home decor company, NOHO Home; Frères Branchiaux Candle Company, a home fragrance company that donates 10% of profits to homeless shelters; and Dominican Republic-inspired hand-crafted chocolate company, Morito Chocolate.

Each store will also offer multiple ways for customers to shop, including in-person shopping as well as contactless curbside pick-up, buy online and pick-up in store, buy online and pick up in-store and same day delivery using DoorDash.

The Snellville store will be located at 1905 Scenic Highway, Suite 9000, while the McDonough store will be located at 209 South Point Boulevard.

MSU student club wins big in carbon removal competition supported by SpaceX CEO’s foundation

STARKVILLE, Miss.—Mississippi State is one of only 23 universities worldwide named a winner in an international carbon removal student contest supported by SpaceX CEO Elon Musk’s foundation.

The only honoree in the SEC and the entire Southeast region, MSU’s Energy Club will use the impressive $250,000 award to further their “BECReative Energy” concept in the $100 million XPRIZE Carbon Removal competition that culminates in 2024. The Bagley College of Engineering student organization received the Musk Foundation funding from the nonprofit XPRIZE, a global implementer of innovative competition models to solve the world’s greatest challenges.

Student founder and team lead Colby Freeman, a senior majoring in biological engineering, said that success in the scalable carbon removal competition over the next three years could lead to MSU garnering the multi-million-dollar grand prize.

“This would enable us, as a university, to create so many opportunities for university students in renewable energy and establish Mississippi State as a world-leading institution in sustainability,” the Snellville, Georgia native said.

The MSU team of more than 20 students includes cross-discipline collaborators in several engineering areas of expertise including agricultural and biological, chemical, computer, mechanical, civil and petroleum. Faculty advisors are Fei Yu, professor in agricultural and biological engineering, and Amin Amirlatifi, assistant professor in chemical engineering.

To win the competition, the team must demonstrate a rigorous, validated scale model of their solution at a level of carbon removal of 1 ton of CO2 per day, and also must demonstrate that their solution can economically scale to gigaton, or 2.2 trillion-pound, levels. The next three years will be spent researching the implementation of their planned system, purchasing necessary equipment, funding laboratory graduate students and more.

Musk said of the contest in Businesswire earlier this year, “This is not a theoretical competition; we want teams that will build real systems that can make a measurable impact and scale to a gigaton level. Whatever it takes. Time is of the essence.”

The team’s “BECReative Energy” concept focuses on biomass gasification, a process that coverts biomass sources to syngas. Carbon in the syngas is then captured, leaving a stream of versatile carbon-free hydrogen that can be utilized in a number of ways—for electricity or heat generation at manufacturing plants, transportation fuel or other industrial processes such as fertilizer production.

“The key,” Freeman said, “is that carbon coming from the biomass originated in the atmosphere as CO2, making it important for us to focus on sources like agricultural and forestry residues, plus sustainably managed forests, that continue to draw CO2 from the atmosphere year after year.”
