Making Your Home Renovation Project Easier
Making the decision to renovate or remodel your home can be daunting. It's overwhelming when you consider the alterations that need to be made, the types of materials that will be required, any permits that are necessary, and the job itself. You may have no idea where to begin. Before you become frustrated, take a deep breath and organize your thoughts. Then you can put a plan in motion.

Know Exactly What You Would Like to See in Your Living Space
Look in home improvement magazines and consider features that you admire in the homes of others. Walk through your home and make a list of any changes that you would like to see. Consider if you need a larger bathroom, want to modify an existing room, or think it's time to add a deck on to the house. Take out a wall, transform your basement into an entertainment room, or take the time to make your home office happen. Once you know what you want, you can move forward with getting the job done.

Find the Best Contractor for the Job
You need to find a company that you can rely on for excellence. You want a contractor who is reputable and skilled in the types of improvements that you need. You also need to consider financial concerns. You want someone to do the job well at a price you can afford.

Don't Choose the First Option

Get several bids and research the background of the companies before you sign a contract. Find out more now about a preferred network of eligible contractors that is participating in your area. You can simplify your life by describing what type of work you want completed on an online form, as well as the budget that you have available for your project.

French film "La Ronde" to be screened February 12, 2016 in Albany, NY

La Ronde (the original German name is Reigen) is a play written in 1897 by Arthur Schnitzler, first printed in 1900 for his friends. In 1903, the first German-language edition was published in Vienna, selling some 40,000 copies, but was banned by the censors a year later.

The title means "the round-dance" as in "ring around the rosie," and tells a series of stories about love affairs or illicit meetings involving a prostitute, a soldier, a chambermaid, her employer's son, a married woman, her husband, a young girl, a poet, an actress and a count. At the end of each encounter, one of the partners forms a liaison with another person, etc. By choosing characters across all levels of society, the play offers social commentary on how sexual contact transgresses boundaries of class.

 
The motion picture LA RONDE (France, 1950, 97 minutes, b/w, in French with English subtitles, directed by Max Ophüls) will be shown on Friday, February 12, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in Page Hall, 135 Western Avenue, on the University at Albany's downtown campus. Sponsored by the New York State Writers Institute as part of its Spring 2016 Classic Film Series, the screening is free and open to the public.
