In the middle of an economic recession with a potentially unstable financial climate looming on the horizon, people everywhere are pinching pennies in an effort to keep afloat, stay out of debt and make it to the next day. If you want to know more information about real estate investment, then you can visit the site at https://www.freedommentor.com/reviews/ and can also read its reviews.
Precisely because banks are foreclosing so frequently and available credit has dried up the price for obtaining a house is at its lowest point in a very long time. What this means is that owners are so desperate to get out of debt that they are selling their houses for 70% or less of their genuine fair market value.
There is always a market for good homes that are fairly priced, and now is no exception. The availability of these residential investment properties present a series of unique opportunities to resell houses obtained at reduced prices for a potentially huge profit.
Many of the available houses have fallen into disrepair which has brought down their value. This is not a bad thing. Quite the opposite! Not only does its lower price make it that much easier to obtain the property in question but by repairing and renovating it an investor can raise the house’s market value and obtain even greater profits. This is truly a buyer’s market right now, and ambitious businessmen should take notice.
MTV today announced its new scripted thriller “Eye Candy,” based on the best-selling novel of the same name by R.L. Stine, will premiere on Monday, January 12 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT. The hour-long, 10-episode drama centers on tech genius Lindy, played by Victoria Justice, a 21-year-old hacker with a gift for seeing clues and connections in the digital world that others can’t.
Persuaded by her roommate to try online dating, Lindy begins to suspect that one of her suitors is a deadly cyber stalker. When the local cyber-crimes unit uncovers a potential serial killer in Manhattan, all signs point to this mysterious stalker. Teaming up with the cyber unit and some hacker friends, Lindy leads the charge to solve these murders while unleashing her own style of justice on the streets of New York City.
Lindy’s been powerfully shaped by two life events. The first was the horrific abduction of her younger sister, Sara. In the aftermath of that trauma, Lindy dropped out of college, moved to New York, and became a hacker so she could dedicate herself to finding Sara, while occasionally bending the law to help others with their own unsolved missing persons cases.
Ben is a detective in the cyber-crimes unit who fell in love with her while he secretly had her under surveillance for her clandestine investigations. After Ben arrested her, she never forgave him, even though he claimed that he saved her from a worse fate. Now, as Lindy finds herself the latest target of a serial killer, she’s forced to use her hacking talents and work with her ex.
“Eye Candy” also stars Casey Deidrick as “Tommy,” Kiersey Clemons as “Sophia,” John Garet Stoker as “Connor” and Harvey Guillen as “George.”
Sophia is Lindy’s hip, gorgeous and vibrant best friend and roommate who owns the popular downtown nightclub IRL. Two years ago, Sophia rescued Lindy from perpetual couch SURFING when she first moved to New York by inviting her to crash in her apartment-and Lindy never left.
Connor is Sophia’s other best friend – a young blogger for a gossip site. He has a friendly rivalry with Lindy, and supports Sophia’s attempts to get Lindy to join a dating app, helping Lindy navigate potential matches. Always having to share Sophia’s attentions with Lindy, Connor has his own selfish reasons for wanting Lindy to have a boyfriend.
Tommy, the dry-witted New York native descends from a long line of cops and now works in the NYPD Cyber Unit. He’s smart, tough, no-nonsense, and started as a beat cop before working his way up to Cyber detective. Tommy is skeptical of Lindy’s tactics and motivations, but he decides to work with her when his partner, Ben, starts helping Lindy track the stalker.
George is Lindy’s friend, confidante, and coworker at her day job in the IT department of a financial company. A fellow hacker, George has always helped Lindy out when she needed assistance whether its legal or slightly left of the law.

Watch two sneak peeks from the Bones Season 9 Episode 21 – The Cold In The Case
Starz‘s fantasy drama learned the hard way last weekend just how important a lead-in can be. With the 2013 pic White House Down playing beforehand, the Season 2 premiere of Da Vinci’s Demons fell 44% from its Season 1 debut last year. The Saturday night 9 PM airing on March 22 had 580,000 total viewers. Having the series finale of Spartacus: War Of The Damnedas its lead-in, the Season 1 premiere pulled in 1.04 million total viewers in its 10 PM airing on on Friday, April 12.
The news for the David S. Goyer-created series’ Season 2 debut gets a lot better when all its plays over the whole weekend arecounted up.
The Adjacent Productions show drew 2 million viewers over all its broadcasts last weekend. That’s just a 6% dip from the 2.14 million that Demonshad over its Season 1 debut weekend last year. It’s also a 41% rise over the show’s Season 1 finale weekend in early June. The total plays for that weekend were 1.4 million. On its own, the Season 1 finale at 10PM on June 7 garnered 380,000 viewers – 34% fewer than the Season 2 debut. With Season 1 of the show getting an average audience of 1.6 million over its weekend airings, the Season 2 debut weekend was up 25%.
Da Vinci’s Demons is produced by Adjacent as the first project under a multi-year agreement that Starz and BBC Worldwide Productions entered into in August 2011. The lush drama depicts the action-filled early life of Leonardo Da Vinci, with British actor Tom Riley playing the legendary inventor and artist. The series was picked up for a second season on April 17 just after its debut.
“7 ReasonsCall The Midwife Is One Of The Best Shows On Television,”in which I extol the virtues of Call the Midwife, which returns for its third season on Sunday, March 30.
The third season of BBC’s Call the Midwife — which wrapped up last month in the U.K. and begins on March 30 on PBS in the States — attracted an audience of more than 10 million viewers when it aired across the Atlantic, a figure that puts it on nearly equal footing with Downton Abbey. But that series gets far more attention than this subtle and superb period drama.
Set in 1950s East End London and based on Jennifer Worth’s memoirs, Call the Midwife tracks the lives of a group of young midwives and the sisterhood of nuns with whom they work at Nonnatus House. Babies are born, labors — both real and figurative — undertaken, and love blossoms and fades. It is an extraordinary show about birth and death and what comes in between. As written by Heidi Thomas and her talented staff, Call the Midwife manages to be both warm and profound in equal measure, opening a window to a time long gone yet offering a glimpse into the eternal and the transitory. It’s tea cozy television with a very deep soul.
But if you haven’t yet watched Call the Midwife (or have already fallen in love with its easy charms), here are seven reasons why it is worth watching. (Warning: Minor spoilers ahead.)
