Raleigh’s One of the Fastest Growing Cities

If you are a high school senior or the guardian of one, and are looking for the perfect university in the Raleigh area, look no further! Raleigh is a booming city with an endless amount of opportunities for college students, but call your Raleigh movers today and schedule your high school grad’s move as soon as possible, before spring semester slots fill up!

With Raleigh being one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, the city ranked among the top three, mid-sized metropolitan areas in Best U.S. Cities for College Students by American Institute of Economic Research.

Another benefiting factor: Raleigh partakes in a Research Triangle powerhouse with North Carolina. The triangle includes North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina, and Duke University, all of which are highly ranked. It is no surprise that Raleigh is populated by well-educated residents.

With so many full-time students, you would think that the unemployment rate is running high. However, Raleigh actually has a lower employment rate than the national average.

Walk for AIDS in Milwaukee

Even though it is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Milwaukee believes in always fighting for all cures. October in Milwaukee also means continuing to diligently work towards bettering the lives of those who are effected by Aids.

This past Sunday, Milwaukee hosted the 25th Annual AIDS Walk Wisconsin and 5k Run event. The annual fundraiser has racked in a little under half a million dollars towards HIV prevention, as well as care and treatment programs.

If you are moving to Milwaukee and want to help make an impact in your new community, then come take part in this annual event for AIDS awareness. The AIDS Walk Wisconsin and 5K Run event is unique in that 100% of its proceeds stay within the state of Wisconsin. The $500,000 goes towards feeding families, providing shelter, protecting the legal rights of people with HIV, and gives better access to healthcare needs.

When dealing with critical illnesses such as AIDS, it can create a financial struggle for the person infected, as well as for their families. When you participate in the walk for AIDS in Milwaukee, you are lending a huge helping hand and allowing people to live longer, healthier lives.

Each year, you can take part in Milwaukee’s AIDS fundraiser and MAKE A DIFFERENCE.

Elderly Rejoice as Chicago Youth Flee Roads

Young Chicago drivers nowhere to be seen
Young Chicago drivers nowhere to be seen. Somebody’s happy about it.

 

People need to get where they’re going, but the cost is high. Plainfield spent over three hundred thousand dollars this year on roads, and that only covers the salt. Transportation’s budget between now and 2040 is nearly four hundred billion dollars.

With all of this cost looming, demand for roads may go down. Between 2001 and 2009, drivers under 35 drove 23% less. This is a combination of fewer drives, shorter drives, and other forms of transportation. More people are taking CTA, Divvy, and new ride sharing services.

The counter argument is that once more of the younger generation gets older and has kids, their transportation needs will increase. That’s where the planned spending becomes essential. While this is likely true, there is no evidence that the trend of reduced youth driving won’t continue with those about to start driving.

As your local movers, we at All My Sons Moving & Storage certainly like reduced traffic. The sooner we can deliver our customers’ furniture, the better.

Halloween Appropriate Art Show in West Palm Beach

The Halloween frenzy has crept into West Palm Beach’s very own Ink and Pistons gallery. J.R. and Amanda Linton, the owners of Ink and Piston, are hosting a particularly unique art show called Anatomically Correct.

Featuring art work chosen from several different artists, J.R and Linton brought together this spectacular art display inspired by medical oddities, Syfy creatures, Day of the Dead, pop-culture influences, and depictions of strange works of art that they encountered during several trips to Japan.

This Halloween appropriate art show brings a beautiful meaning to decay. Although Halloween incorporates death with horror, the pieces in the show for October 18th intertwine life and death.

Travis Bedel’s piece Memories of Now, will be a feature in the event; illustrating a strong, emotion-evoking profile of facial muscles and an arrangement of beautiful flowers. Bedel’s piece provides a sneak peek into what you can expect to see throughout the Ink and Pistons gallery this Saturday night.

If this piece fascinates you, make an appearance at the Anatomically Correct art show! If you are moving to West Palm Beach, you can pick up a one-of-a-kind piece of art to decorate your new home.

Special Early Appearances in Tulsa

Dinosaurs are coming back to life thanks to the Walking With Dinosaurs: The Arena Spectacular. However, they have made special early appearances in Tulsa this month prior to their upcoming show at Tulsa’s BOK center.

walking-with-dinosaurs

As Baby-T, one of the smallest life-like dinosaurs, stomped through gymnasiums such as the one at Sequoyah Elementary School, children could not help but get a closer look and reach for this captivating replica.

Baby-T, a one-man operated puppet, is only a small part of what you can expect at the Walking With Dinosaurs show. There are larger dinosaurs that tower over Baby-T and are a three-person operation. But do not let the fact that these are puppets fool you; these spectacular machines move and react freakishly lifelike.

Next month, the Walking With Dinosaurs show will be scheduled for three viewings, so be sure to jump on the opportunity quickly. November 11th there will be an evening show at 7:30PM and a 3:30PM showing on the 12th. The tickets range from $25 to $75 depending on how up-close and personal you dare to be with the large creatures.

The show at the BOK center presents 20 stunning dinosaurs from ten different species which were alive during the Cretaceous period. The dinosaurs are always being improved, as several paleontologists work to keep the dinosaurs looking as accurate as possible. Over the years, paleontologists discover new details; such as, the fact that dinosaurs were feathered. The new detail was added to this year’s show in order to honor the dinosaurs in the best way they can. The lifelike dinosaur show is entertaining for all ages so bring the entire family to this extra special event.

If you are moving to Tulsa, you can expect to see several attractions and shows just like this one, being featured throughout the area. Tulsa is a great town, with several good schools that bring in new and exciting ways for students to learn, like through Baby-T and his show. Call All My Sons Moving Company of Tulsa today and get personalized advice on the best community in Tulsa to suit you and your family.
