Students get a
from the Navy
On June 4, North Salem High School welcomed guest speaker EMN1(SW )
James Willis in Paul Rubeo’s chemistry and physics classes to discuss nuclear
energy. Willis is a Nuclear Power Representative for the Department of the Navy
responsible for the New England area who has been assigned to three di erent
Nuclear Powered Aircraft Carriers. He reached out to the district asking if he
could come in to discuss the bene ts of Nuclear Power compared to traditional
fossil fuel and renewable power generation, how power is collected from the ssion
process, ssion vs fusion, basic construction and operation of a reactor, and hazards
and risks associated with radiation exposure. PHOTOS COURTESY
“His visit was very informative for the students and he was able to answer several OF PAUL RUBEO
questions that they had about nuclear energy and about the Navy,” said teacher Paul
Rubeo. “ e students in my class are currently working on a problem solving task which asks them to WHY DO WE
consider the bene ts and risks associated with building a nuclear power plant near North Salem to ADVERTISE
sustain New York’s energy demands while cutting down on fossil fuel use. Speaking with Mr. Willis
helped my students get some real world perspective on the projects they are putting together.”

The choice for staying
put or moving on
Many home improvement television series showcase people deciding whether
to improve upon their current homes to make them into the houses of their
dreams or to put “for sale” signs in their lawns and move on to something new.
e question of whether to move or stay put depends on various factors. Such
factors may include emotional attachment to a home, the current economic cli-
mate and the cost of real estate. Current data points to a greater propensity for
people to invest and improve upon their current properties rather than trading
up for something new.
According to information collected by John Burns Real Estate Consulting,
the percentage of homeowners moving up to their next home is the lowest in
25 years. Many are opting to make starter homes permanent by expanding them
and repairing homes for the long haul.
e National Association of Realtors said that, between 1987 and 2008, home
buyers stayed in their homes an average of six years before selling. Since 2010,
however, NAR says the average expected length of time people will stay in their
homes before selling is now 15 years.
Part of what’s fueling this permanency is that many home buyers were able
to acquire rock-bottom mortgage interest rates shortly after the 2008 recession.
As a result, they’re not inclined to walk away from those rates, even if doing so
means getting more house. Also, a low inventory of available houses has stymied
repeat buying for many people.
ose factors and others have led many homeowners to invest in renovations
instead. e experts at Bankrate say realistic budgeting and comparing renova-
tion project costs against mortgages and interests rates can further help individu-
als decide whether to remain in their current homes or move out. Very often a
smarter layout and more e cient oor plan can make meaningful di erences in
spaces. Renovations and redesigns can make sense and often are less expensive
and disruptive than moving.
