Hype House and the Los Angeles TikTok Mansion Gold Rush
LOS ANGELES — Hype House, the physical location of a new content creator collective, is a Spanish-style mansion perched at the top of a hill on a gated street in Los Angeles. It has a palatial backyard, a pool and enormous kitchen, dining and living quarters.
Four of the group’s 19 members live in the house full time; several others keep rooms to crash in when they are in town. And all day long, a stream of influential young internet stars come by to pay homage to the new guard.
Hype House was formed in December by some of TikTok’s most talked-about stars. They introduced themselves with a Backstreet Boys-esque photo shoot, and within minutes #hypehouse began trending; videos including the hashtag #hypehouse have accrued nearly 100 million views on TikTok.
The group handle that distributes their content surpassed three million followers on TikTok in just over a week and a half. In the days leading up to Christmas it was all anyone under the age of 18 on TikTok seemed to be talking about.
So-called collab houses, also known as content houses, are an established tradition in the influencer world. Over the last five years they have formed a network of hubs across Los Angeles.
In 2014 members of an early collab channel called Our Second Life lived and worked together in what they called the 02L Mansion. The next year, nearly all the top talent on Vine moved into a large apartment complex at 1600 Vine Street.
Soon after, YouTuber mansions were popping up all over the city. The Vlog Squad shacked up in Studio City, while Team 10, Jake Paul’s infamous YouTuber collective, rented a giant house in West Hollywood before eventually decamping to a mansion in Calabasas.
Another group of YouTubers rented a $12 million mansion in the Hollywood Hills and deemed it the Clout House.
Now, the TikTokers have arrived — and everything about TikTok happens faster than it does anywhere else.
Collab House Block Party
Collab houses are beneficial to influencers in lots of ways. Living together allows for more teamwork, which means faster growth, and creators can provide emotional support for what can be a grueling career.
“It’s a brilliant move for power players on these platforms to lift each other up,” said Sam Sheffer, a YouTuber and technologist. “‘Elevate others to elevate yourself’ is a saying, and it really rings true with this new generation of TikTokers.”
“From a management perspective, it’s great,” he added. “It just means all the kids will focus on content.”
Hype House was the brainchild of Chase Hudson, 17, a TikTok star with more than eight million followers who is known online as Lilhuddy, and Thomas Petrou, 21, a YouTube star.
The pair began plotting a move in November. Within 13 days they had signed a lease on their current residence. Originally, Chase hoped to name the group House of Olympus. He still thinks it sounds cooler, but then Alex Warren, 19, suggested the name Hype House, and Chase was outvoted.
Finding the right location for the house was key. A good collab house has lots of natural light, open space and is far from prying neighbors. A gated community is ideal, to prevent swarms of fans from showing up.
Brent Rivera, a YouTube star with more than 17 million followers on TikTok who also runs a talent incubator, said the perfect collab house “needs to be big, and the more amenities the better, like a pool, nice bathroom, nice lighting, big back and front yard, room for activities and fun stuff you can do inside or outside.”
Residents also must be able to film. Many influencers prefer the short-term rental structure of Airbnb, in part because obtaining a lease can be tough when you’re young and have an unpredictable income.
But unfortunately many Airbnbs in Los Angeles have a no-filming rule. (Homeowners worry about, among other things, tripods scratching the floors and the potential property damage that comes with YouTube stunts.)
The location Chase and Thomas found for Hype House checked all the boxes and had some additional features that make it perfect for TikTok: plenty of giant mirrors and a bathroom the size of a small apartment to film in. Because everyone just moved in, Hype House is also nearly without furniture, which makes shooting easier.
On Dec. 30, members clustered into the bathroom in rotating groups, doing back flips in front of a phone propped up on a roll of toilet paper supported by a Smartwater bottle. Fifteen-second clips of a DaBaby song looped until everyone had memorized the agreed-upon choreography.
After one group finished filming, they headed downstairs to lounge on three beanbag chairs. The house has a large glistening pool, but it’s too cold to swim in it right now. Hype House members prefer to hang out on the stone porches overlooking it. The sweeping staircase is also a popular backdrop.
Alex, Thomas, Daisy Keech, 20, and Kouvr Annon, 19, live at the house full time. As the oldest, Thomas acts as a default den mother. Though Chase helped put money down for the house, Thomas manages schedules, handles the house issues and resolves the inevitable conflicts. Unlike Team 10 and other groups, Hype House doesn’t take a cut of anyone’s revenue.
The house does have strict rules, however. Creators can have friends over, but it is not a party house. If you break something, you have 15 days to replace it. And if you want to be a part of the group, you need to churn out content daily.
“If someone slips up constantly, they’ll not be a part of this team anymore,” Thomas said. “You can’t come and stay with us for a week and not make any videos, it’s not going to work. This whole house is designed for productivity. If you want to party, there’s hundreds of houses that throw parties in L.A. every weekend. We don’t want to be that. It’s not in line with anyone in this house’s brand. This house is about creating something big, and you can’t do that if you’re going out on the weekends.”
In order to make a splash on the internet, you need the right people and so Chase acts as Hype House’s unofficial talent scout and a behind-the-scenes operator. He has a knack for spotting influencers early and knows what qualities it takes to get big online.
You have to be young, you have to “have a lot of energy and personality and honestly a little weird. The weird people get the furthest on the internet,” Chase said. “You either have to be talented at something, or a weird funny mix, or extremely good looking.”
Alex said, “If you have all three, you’re a TikTok god.”
The undisputed star of the group is Charli D’Amelio, a 15-year-old from Connecticut known as the reigning queen of TikTok. She and Chase appear to be dating; the two most often speak of each other as best friends.
Charli has amassed more than 15 million followers since joining the app this summer, and her fan base continues to grow at a wild rate. Her dance routines spur thousands of copycat videos; her rise has been so sharp and fast that she has become a meme.
Charli’s sister, Dixie D’Amelio, is 18 and has five million followers. Because they are still in school, both girls will continue to live with their parents in Connecticut but come out to Los Angeles when their schedules allow.
Charli is polite, thoughtful and soft-spoken in person. She is a trained dancer and has ambitions to dance full time. In December she performed with Bebe Rexha at a Jonas Brothers concert. Hype House has provided a safe space to help her cope with the stress and attention that come with overnight fame.
“The internet can be a little harsh,” she said. “Everyone here is ready to bring positivity and kindness.” Charli also credits the group for expanding her creativity and helping her branch into new content formats like vlogging.
“I’m trying things outside my comfort zone that I might not have done if I was alone in my room,” she said.
But her roots remain in dance. “I grew up in the dance competition world — everyone’s dream is to dance onstage. I’ve been a performer my whole life,” she said. “I say all the time, this is a dream. I’m living out everything I’ve ever wanted to do so early.”
Marc D’Amelio, who is Charli and Dixie’s father, said: “As parents, one thing we say all the time is that this is just about creating options for our kids. We don’t know where this is going, we don’t have any plans for Charli or Dixie to do this or that. We’re just riding it and enjoying it, and hopefully they can do things they love and most importantly be happy.”
Los Angeles, City of the Moment
The competition among young influencers in Los Angeles is fierce. Many YouTubers who have felt secure in their status as internet elites are now being threatened by the new wave of talent from TikTok that is flooding the city.
And even since the arrival of Hype House, many other TikTok collectives have been making plans to take on Los Angeles. Some TikTokers began discussing a Melanin Mansion for black creators, noting that Hype House is predominately white.
Cabin Six, an L.G.B.T.-focused collective, held public auditions on TikTok last week, as did Diversity University, another TikTok group with plans to organize in Los Angeles in March.
“TikTok has brought a younger group of creators. That energy is kind of pushing on a lot of older creators,” said Josh Sadowski, 19, a TikToker with nearly four million followers who lived in another TikTok collab house. “There’s all these kids who want to move to L.A. and make content, and TikTok is pushing their growth so much. Everybody is really, really driven. They’re bringing that energy to L.A., and it’s rubbing off on everyone else. No one wants to miss out.”
Evidence of this is all over the city. TikTok’s primary United States office — the company is based in China — is in Los Angeles. At sunset on a recent Friday, six TikTok shoots were taking place simultaneously on the Venice boardwalk.
Several TikTok creators began hosting twice-a-week collab days at the Burbank Town Center in the fall; Josh was shocked at how many kids began showing up.
Every influencer brings friends and “the group just gets bigger and bigger,” he said. “The energy is very different. I’ve been around YouTubers, but the energy now, people are so motivated and you can feel that motivation in these collabs. It creates a hype.”
TalentX Entertainment, a talent management incubator, has rented a giant collab house in Bel Air called the Sway House, where six TikTokers, all with millions of followers, will move in on Jan. 3. One member of the Council House, a group of British and Irish TikTokers, visited Los Angeles this week and posted about his plans to “infiltrate America.”
Too much hype inevitably attracts drama, and Hype House members are extremely wary of it. They are careful about who they film with, what they wear, how they act and how things can be interpreted online.
If a Hype House member has a girlfriend, for instance, that member may avoid filming with another girl alone, so as not to start rumors.
The house itself could bring drama someday. MaiLinh Nguyen, a former videographer for Jake Paul, said money can play a huge role in trouble.
“I don’t think it’s sustainable to just be a collective forever,” she said. “At some point if they want to do a pop-up shop, or release Hype House merch, they need to figure out how to divvy things up financially and they’re going to have to legitimize it as a business.”
Michael Gruen, the vice president of talent at TalentX Entertainment, said many of these collectives are creating valuable intellectual property. A commission structure should be negotiated from the start, he said, and thought should be given to incorporation and insurance and everything else that comes along with running a business.
“As I’ve told many of these creator houses,” Mr. Gruen said, “before you dig deep into raising the value of the I.P., make sure that you have the splits organized so it doesn’t come into play and ruin friendships.”
Carson King, 20, a YouTuber who lives in a collab house with several YouTuber friends, said that for him and many others, a looser arrangement can work great, and creates less pressure.
“I think it’s a dream for a lot of people to be able to move in with friends and be able to work on whatever you want to work on,” he said. He and his housemates keep things like whiteboards around their collab house so they can write down video ideas anytime.
“The big struggle creators have is that people around them don’t understand at all the culture of what they’re doing,” said Mitch Moffit, 31, a YouTuber who lived in a collab house when he was starting out.
This is the value for young people: If you want to immerse yourself in influencer and internet culture, there’s no better place to be. Chase, Thomas, Charli and other members of Hype House are aware of how lucky they are, how fleeting fame can be, and they don’t want to squander the opportunity.
“It’s 24/7 here. Last night we posted at 2 a.m.,” Thomas said. “There’s probably 100 TikToks made here per day. At minimum.”

Manhattan Beach was once home to Black beachgoers, but the city ran them out. Now it faces a reckoning
Anthony Bruce could barely talk about the beach that bears his family’s name without feeling a sharp pain, a tug at the heart.
More than a century ago, his ancestors had turned this small corner of Manhattan Beach into a popular resort — one where Black people could dip their toes in the sand and bask in their own slice of the California dream.
But their white neighbors, in this very white town, ran them all away.
“This is our legacy, this beach,” Bruce said. “It has haunted my family for ages.”
Today, most see Bruce’s Beach as a pretty park with jasmine and coastal live oak overlooking the sea.
In this affluent town of 35,000 — known for its manicured homes, the community fair, the Strand by the sea — few know of this racist past. Others would prefer to gloss over the uncomfortable details in a community where Black residents make up less than 1% of the population.

But as protesters across the nation continue to fill the streets calling for a more equitable society, a new generation is demanding that the city atone for past wrongs. Like the many towns, institutions and universities that have been forced into similar reckonings since the death of George Floyd, Manhattan Beach must confront its own history.
The truth, after all, was buried for generations — then rewritten over the years to fit preferred narratives.
“Bruce’s Beach was an injustice in our town’s history,” said Gary McAulay, president of the Manhattan Beach Historical Society. “The facts are tragic enough, but in the nearly 100 years since then, the facts have often been corrupted in the retelling.”
The story of Bruce’s Beach begins with the Tongva, who roamed the dunes and gathered seafood along this windy stretch of coast. Then came the Spanish, and by the early 1900s, George Peck and others developed what is known today as Manhattan Beach.
In 1912, Willa Bruce purchased for $1,225 the first of two lots along the Strand between 26th and 27th streets. While her husband, Charles, worked as a dining-car chef on the train running between Salt Lake City and Los Angeles, Willa ran a popular lodge, cafe and dance hall — providing Black families a way to enjoy a weekend on the coast.
By setting up a beachside community, Charles and Willa Bruce “did what every other Californian was doing during that time,” a historian says.
Many referred to this area as Bruce’s Beach. A few more Black families bought and built their own cottages by the sea. A community was born.
“They were pioneers. They came to California, bought property, enjoyed the beach, made money,” said Alison Rose Jefferson, a historian and author of the book “Living the California Dream: African American Leisure Sites during the Jim Crow Era.” “They did what every other Californian was doing during that time.”
But white neighbors resented Bruce’s growing popularity. Tires were slashed. The Ku Klux Klan purportedly set fire to a mattress under the main deck and torched a Black-owned home nearby. Fake “10 minutes only” parking signs were posted to deter Black out-of-town folk. To reach the ocean, visitors had to walk an extra half mile around property owned by Peck, who had lined it with security and “No Trespassing” signs.
This hostility was not uncommon at the time. Another popular area in Santa Monica was referred to as the Inkwell. In Huntington Beach, the Black-owned Pacific Beach Club mysteriously burned the day before it was scheduled to open.
When harassment failed to drive the Black beach-going community out of town, city officials condemned the neighborhood in 1924 and seized more than two dozen properties through eminent domain. The reason, they said, was an urgent need for a public park.
The Bruces and three other Black families sued, citing racial prejudice, according to Robert Brigham, a longtime resident and historian who, in 1956, sought to tell the real story of Bruce’s Beach in his master’s thesis at Fresno State College. The Bruces sought $120,000 in compensation — $70,000 for their two lots and $50,000 in damages. Another couple asked for $36,000.
After years of litigation, the Bruces received $14,500. The other families, Black and white, received between $1,200 and $4,200 per lot.
Most found other property in Manhattan Beach, but the city made it impossible for the Bruces to move their seaside business anywhere else in town. So they packed up and went inland, where they served as chefs for other business owners for the remainder of their lives.
“The part that entrenches this whole idea of white privilege in the law and in our culture, that people don’t realize the full effect, is this idea of generational wealth,” said Effie Turnbull Sanders, the California Coastal Commission’s environmental justice commissioner.
She noted how eminent domain was once also used to take property from interned Japanese Americans and to dispossess Latino families of their properties to build a public housing project that ultimately became Dodger Stadium.
“It is mind boggling to think about how many opportunities are missed when the government intercedes to prevent certain people from building wealth,” said Turnbull Sanders, who has worked for 20 years in land-use law. “Generations of wealth building have been eliminated for so many folks of color in California history.”
Bruce’s Beach was razed and remained vacant for decades.
In the 1950s, city officials began to worry that family members might sue to regain their land unless it was used for the purpose for which it had been originally taken. City Park was born, and later renamed Beachfront, then Bayview Terrace Park. In 1974, it was named after a sister city in Mexico, Parque Culiacan.
By 2006, after a summer of intense debate, the City Council voted 3-2 to rename the beach after the Bruce family — largely because of an appeal by Councilman Mitch Ward, the city’s first Black elected official.
But the commemorative sign, many say, reinforced the white way of seeing the world: “In 1912, Mr. George Peck, one of our community’s co-founders, made it possible for the beach area below this site to be developed as Bruce’s Beach, the only beach resort in Los Angeles County for all people,” the statement begins.
Anthony Bruce, many generations later, says this history continues to tear his family apart. His grandfather Bernard, born a few years after the condemnation, was obsessed with what happened and lived his life “extremely angry at the world.”
“How would you feel if your family owned the Waldorf and they took it away from you?” Bernard said in a 2007 interview with The Times. Growing up in South L.A., he said when he told school friends that his family once owned a beach, they would laugh at him.
Bernard’s marriage suffered, and he wanted Anthony’s father to become a lawyer so that he could keep fighting to right these wrongs, Anthony said. Instead, his father took the kids and left California.
Today, Anthony, 37, is a security supervisor in Florida and teaches English online. He’s the only Bruce who can manage to talk publicly about the beach, but even he feels worn out. He’s heartened by the new movement of people championing the cause.
“People are out there because they want to see justice too,” he said. “They know that what happened to Charles and Willa is still happening every day in different parts of the world.”
Kavon Ward, who moved to Manhattan Beach three years ago with her newborn daughter, said she knew she wasn’t welcome when a woman at Polliwog Park asked which family she was nannying for. At the local Ralph’s, she was called a terrorist for wearing a Black Panthers T-shirt. The local Facebook group for moms, she said, kept deleting her posts about Black Lives Matter.
But Ward was appalled when she heard about Bruce’s Beach. She and a few moms started their own group, Anti-Racist Movements Around the South Bay, and did everything they could to shake their neighbors, city leaders and state legislators into action. They reclaimed the park as a space to honor Black lives — including a Juneteenth celebration and memorials for Breonna Taylor and Emmett Till.
“It’s like: You kicked the Bruces out, but you’re not going to run me out,” Ward said. “So if I’m not leaving, I’ve got to fight to make it better.”

Another resident started a petition, which has gathered 9,500 signatures, demanding that the city make a new plaque, issue a public statement and give the land back to the Bruce family “and provide restitution for loss of revenue for 95 years and monetary damages for the wanton violation of their civil rights.”
These demands have forced an uncomfortable conversation for many in the community.
In an editorial in the local Easy Reader News, Russ Lesser, a 76-year-resident of Manhattan Beach who served as mayor in the 1980s, questioned how returning the land would even work.
The park itself, he noted, was not the two parcels that the Bruces actually owned down by the Strand, where the county lifeguard station sits today. Current fair market value for the entire area would be at least $75 million, he estimated. How would taxpayers come up with this money?
“What happened was wrong,” he said. “I have no problem with teaching the history of Bruce’s Beach, but if you only teach what happened nearly one hundred years ago, and do not teach about the progress we have made in those hundred years, then it seems to me the goal is to create hatred and divisiveness.”
City Mayor Richard Montgomery said he is open to redoing the plaque and has said as early as 14 years ago that an apology was long overdue.
“We all agree there were some things that happened in the past that we’re not proud of,” he said. “But the temperament and the people and the times have changed. We’re a different city today than we were 100 years ago.”
As for the demand for restitution, Montgomery said the city needed to first get the facts straight before deciding how to proceed. The City Council is seeking historians, he said, to teach the community what really happened.
Descendants of Charles and Willa Bruce gather at Bruce’s Beach for a family reunion in 2018.
Duane Shepard Sr., a 62-year-resident of South L.A. and designated Bruce family representative, said he’s been building a case and researching which parcels, and how many, Charles and Willa actually owned.
Shepard, a Bruce cousin on his mother’s side, imagines the land could be used for a historical center, the money perhaps used to establish a scholarship foundation. He smiled as he described a reunion held at the park in 2018, where about 150 family members had gathered for the first time.
“It was very spiritual for us to come together as a family,” said Shepard, who is a Pocasset Wampanoag chief and tribal elder from his father’s side. “I declared the land sacred that day and promised that I would do everything I could in the world to get justice for our family.”

FACT SHEET: Biden Administration Efforts to Address Bottlenecks at Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, Moving Goods from Ship to Shelf
President Biden knew that there would be massive economic challenges emerging from the pandemic. The Biden Administration acted quickly to get the economy moving again – passing and implementing the American Rescue Plan to get checks in bank accounts and get Americans vaccinated.
But as the country recovers from a once in a century pandemic and economic crisis, the private businesses that make up our supply chains, which get goods to businesses and the American people, have struggled to keep up. The pandemic has led to a surge in e-commerce, with sales increasing 39 percent in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the first quarter of 2020. At the same time, COVID has disrupted workers in key transportation and logistics nodes – the jobs of 1,800 Southern California port workers were disrupted because of COVID earlier this year.
These disruptions are not just happening here at home, but all around the world as COVID has led to global shut downs and disruptions. The Chinese ports of Yantian (Shenzhen) and Ningbo-Zhoushan—two of the top 5 largest ports in the world—each experienced multi-week partial-terminal closures aimed at curbing COVID outbreaks, slowing global supply chains due to increased dwell times and cancelled sailings. In September, hundreds of factories closed under lockdown restrictions in Vietnam, halting production that supports thousands of retailers worldwide. They have been slowly reopening in early October but must still contend with mounting supply chain issues. These disruptions have made the transportation supply chain more unstable and difficult to predict.
The President launched the Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force in June, which included a focus on transportation and logistics bottlenecks to the U.S. economic recovery. After meeting with local government leaders and companies to diagnose the problems and identify solutions, Port Envoy John Porcari was appointed in August to help drive coordination between the many private firms who control the transportation and logistics supply chain.
Today, the Administration is convening business leaders, port leaders, and union leaders to discuss the challenges at ports across the country and actions each partner can take to address the delays and congestion across the transportation supply chain. And the President will meet with the leadership from the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach and the International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) to discuss the actions they are each taking to address these challenges in Southern California.
These leaders are announcing a series of public and private commitments to move more goods faster, and strengthen the resiliency of our supply chains, by moving towards 24/7 operations at the Ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach. These two ports are the point of entry for 40 percent of containers to the U.S., and are on track to reach new highs in container traffic this year. Through August, Los Angeles has moved 30% more and Long Beach over 20% more containers to help U.S. exporters reach customers around the world and U.S families and factories get the goods they need.
These commitments will speed up shipments of goods throughout the country and include:
The Port of Los Angeles is expanding to 24/7 operation. The Port of Long Beach expanded operations in mid-September. The Port of Los Angeles is now joining them by adding new off-peak night time shifts and weekend hours. This expansion means the Port of Los Angeles has nearly doubled the hours that cargo will be able to move out of its docks and on highways.
The International Longshore and Warehouse Union (ILWU) has announced its members are willing to work those extra shifts. This will add needed capacity to put towards clearing existing backlogs. This is an important first step, now the private businesses along the supply chain need to move their operations to 24/7.
Large companies are announcing they will use expanded hours to move more cargo off the docks, so ships can come to shore faster. Unlike leading ports around the world, U.S. ports have failed to realize the full possibility offered by operation on nights and weekends. Moving goods during off-peak hours can help move goods out of ports faster. For example, at the Port of LA, goods move 25 percent faster at night than during the day. These commitments will help unlock capacity in the rest of the system—including highways, railroads and warehouses—by reducing congestion during the day.
The commitments being announced today include:
- The nation’s largest retailer, Walmart, is committing to increase its use of night-time hours significantly and projects they could increase throughput by as much as 50% over the next several weeks.
- UPS is committing to an increased use of 24/7 operations and enhanced data sharing with the ports, which could allow it to move up to 20 percent more containers from the ports.
- FedEx is committing to work to combine an increase in night time hours with changes to trucking and rail use to increase the volume of containers it will move from the ports. Once these changes are in place, they could double the volume of cargo they can move out of the ports at night.
- Samsung is committing to move nearly 60% more containers out of these ports by operating 24/7 through the next 90 days. 72% of U.S. homes have at least one Samsung product, from appliances to consumer electronics.
- The Home Depot is committing to move up to 10% additional containers per week during the newly available off-peak port hours at the Ports of L.A. and Long Beach.
- Target, which is currently moving about 50 percent of its containers at night, has committed to increasing that amount by 10 percent during the next 90 days to help ease congestion at the ports.
Across these six companies over 3,500 additional containers per week will move at night through the end of the year.
Those boxes contain toys, appliances, bicycles, and furniture that Americans purchased online or at their local small business, and pieces and parts that are sent to U.S. factories for our workers to assemble into products. And this is just a start—these commitments provide a clear market signal to the other businesses along the transportation supply chain—rails, trucks, and warehouses—that there is demand to move additional cargo at off-peak hours.
Secretary Buttigieg and Port Envoy Porcari will continue to work with all stakeholders to help more businesses access these expanded hours, and move the rest of the supply chain towards 24/7 operations.
This effort is part of the ongoing work of the Biden-Harris Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force to continue to identify emerging bottlenecks to the economic recovery and take action to clear them to help families, workers, and businesses get the goods they need.

90,000 What houses should be avoided in the secondary market
“Buy, move in and live” – this is how sellers of apartments in dilapidated Khrushchev lure buyers. At the same time, buyers hear statements that the life of the Khrushchevs is already coming to an end and they are about to fall apart. Similar conversations are going on around the stalinkas, panel houses … In fact, everything is not so simple. If, for example, you are interested in buying> an apartment near the metro, you need to pay attention not only to the location of the house, but also to its condition, regardless of the year of construction.
The age and condition of the house is much more important than the construction technology
The maximum service life of concrete and brick buildings with concrete slabs usually exceeds 100 years. The same applies to houses called Stalinist. So, most of the houses on the secondary market, subject to fair construction and normal operation, can provide conditions for a normal life for another 30-60 years. But unfortunately, not everything is going smoothly with the construction and operation.
Not all Khrushchevs and more modern brick and panel houses were built conscientiously. Poor quality building materials and non-compliance with technology were common. The most obvious sign is curved walls that do not fit into any building codes. Bricks falling out of masonry and cement that looks more like caked sand are not extraordinary either.
If you don’t want to level and insulate crooked walls, you can buy an apartment in> Novy Tushino from the developer
You need to pay attention to such nuances when buying both secondary and primary real estate.But if all these problems are hidden under a beautiful renovation, it is difficult to “get to the bottom” of them. But if you decide, for example,> to buy a one-room apartment from a developer, you will have the opportunity to look at the bare walls and evaluate the quality of the builders’ work.
Repairs and communications
In residential buildings periodically (once every several decades) major repairs should be carried out. Therefore, if you are going to buy an apartment in a house that is already, for example, 40 years old, ask when it was overhauled.If it was not carried out at all and is not planned in the near future, it is worth looking for other options.
Even if everything is done perfectly in your apartment, worn out communications and a leaking roof will not let you enjoy the comfort. By the way, communications are not as durable as brick or concrete walls.
Those who decided to buy> apartments in Kuntsevo appreciated the advantages of modern parking from the developer
The service life of water supply and heating pipes depends on the material used and usually does not exceed 30 years.Electric wiring is not eternal either. Depending on the material – copper or aluminum, it should be replaced after 40 or 20 years, respectively.
Problems may not be visible, but sooner or later they will make themselves felt. A leaking riser may not bother you if the water flows directly into the basement. But the fact is that dampness will gradually destroy the foundation, lead to improper shrinkage and cracks in the walls. This process is slow and imperceptible, but it can lead to very unpleasant and difficult to eliminate consequences.By the way, you’ve probably noticed that dampness in the basements of old houses is not such a rare occurrence.
When choosing an apartment in the secondary market, you need to be interested in the condition of not only the purchased apartment, but the whole house, including its communications.
Pay attention to weak points
As for panel houses, their weak point is the numerous seams. Behind them are the joints of the panels. And if in civilized countries it is customary to make embedded elements from stainless steel, then in our country they are simply painted with anti-corrosion paint.Combined with poor quality and inadequate seam maintenance, this can lead to a shorter life span for homes. Therefore, when buying an apartment in a panel house, you should pay special attention to the condition of the joints between the panels.
You can> buy an apartment in Odintsovo in a monolithic building from FGC “Leader”, which will calmly stand for 150 years
One of the reasons for the durability of houses built using monolithic technology is the lack of connections in their load-bearing structure.Curtain walls and insulation not only contribute to comfort, but also protect the house from environmental influences. Insulation and concrete walls of such a house always remain dry and do not freeze. But it can be quite difficult to determine the quality of the construction of such a house, so here it is better to focus on the reputation of the developer.

How to strengthen the immune system is advised by the candidate of medical sciences, allergist-immunologist EuroMed
Have you noticed that some people can sit quietly in a draft, walk in a cold jacket in a light jacket, swim in a cold river, communicate with friends with a cold, and at the same time do not get sick? While others take great care, wear gauze masks during epidemics, wrap themselves in warm sweaters and woolen socks, and still do not get out of colds? What is the reason for this? It’s all about immunity!
Our consultant: Candidate of Medical Sciences, allergist-immunologist Yulia Borisovna SELIKHOVA.
Our immunity is the body’s main defense mechanism against viruses and bacteria. The development of the immune system in the process of evolution determined the very possibility of human existence. Immunity is innate and adaptive (acquired).
Innate immunity is the body’s ability to recognize and neutralize various bacteria and viruses based on common characteristics. As the name implies, this is a basic property of an organism that it receives at birth.Adaptive immunity recognizes more specific, individual pathogens, it is formed in the process of encountering them, after diseases or vaccinations.
Immune failure signs
- Frequent ARI
- frequent exacerbations of chronic infectious diseases (tonsillitis, sinusitis, bronchitis, pyelonephritis, adnexitis, etc.)
- frequent relapses of herpetic eruptions
- pustular skin lesions
- joint and muscle pain
- prolonged increase in temperature or lack of temperature reaction in acute infectious diseases
- swollen lymph nodes
- poor wound healing
- malignant neoplasms
- chronic fatigue syndrome
The immune system is formed in a person in the womb, and a lot depends on heredity.But lifestyle also plays a very significant role in the work of immunity. And if we cannot do anything with heredity, then it is in our power to strengthen immunity by following certain rules!
How to strengthen the immune system?
Hardening is essentially training the immune system. The main principle of hardening: moderation, gradualness and regularity.
Start small: walk more, ventilate the apartment more often, walk around the house barefoot, wipe yourself with a sponge or towel moistened with cool water, wash your face with cool water.Then you can move on to more serious procedures: pouring cold water, contrasting shower. A contrast shower, by the way, is also very useful for training the cardiovascular system, improving skin condition, and preventing cellulite. Just remember to be careful and gradual! If you already have problems with the cardiovascular system, consult with your cardiologist beforehand.
The regularity of hardening procedures, the absence of long breaks between them is very important.
You can start hardening procedures only if you are completely healthy. Ideally, after consulting a doctor.
To strengthen the body, you need a balanced diet rich in vitamins and microelements. In order for you to receive all the necessary substances and trace elements, the diet should be as varied as possible. All the main food groups should be present in the diet every day: dairy, starchy, vegetables, fruits, sources of complex carbohydrates, protein and fats.Complex carbohydrates are found in cereals, pasta, potatoes, bran bread, and yeast-free whole grain breads. They take a long time to digest, unlike simple carbohydrates found in sugar, cookies, cakes and other sweets. Also, a person needs indigestible carbohydrates – fiber or dietary fiber. They create a feeling of fullness and are good for digestion as well. Such carbohydrates are found in oatmeal, wholemeal bread.
In addition, our body needs fats, as they help to absorb vitamins A and E.If the body has an insufficient amount of fat, the skin looks worse, the liver suffers, and sex hormones stop being produced. Fats are either saturated or unsaturated. The latter are better absorbed, respectively, they are more useful. It is good to get them from fatty fish, avocados, almonds, olive oil. Of course, the use of foods containing hidden unhealthy fats, such as mayonnaise, sausage, cakes, should be limited.
Sources of protein are fish, meat, dairy products, eggs, legumes, nuts, mushrooms.
Eat as many vegetables and fruits as possible, preferably uncooked for better preservation of vitamins.
Vitamins and Probiotics
Numerous studies show that in Russia, and in other countries too, the overwhelming majority of people suffer from hypovitaminosis – a lack of vitamins. As you know, vitamins are not formed in the human body, with the exception of vitamin D and vitamins synthesized by intestinal bacteria, therefore, they must be constantly present in the composition of food.But even with the most rational nutrition (and let’s be frank – most of us have far from ideally balanced nutrition), the human diet today is “understaffed” with vitamins by 20-30%. The assimilation of vitamins from “artificial” preparations is often higher than from ordinary food.
Accordingly, it is necessary to regularly take multivitamin preparations. During the period of illness, stress, depression, increased stress, pregnancy, smoking and alcohol abuse, taking antibiotics, the need for vitamins increases.The duration of taking multivitamins is determined by the doctor, and is usually 1-3 months, it is advisable to repeat the course 2-4 times a year. Vitamins are better absorbed if the daily dose is divided into several doses; it is better to prescribe the main intake of drugs in the first half of the day, since the metabolism in the body slows down in the evening and at night. Since a person has always received vitamins from food, it is better to take vitamin preparations with food, so they are absorbed more fully.
In addition to vitamins, probiotics are important for strengthening the immune system.Probiotics are medicines or biologically active food supplements that contain live microorganisms that are representatives of the normal human microflora. They are designed to restore the disturbed balance of microorganisms inhabiting various mucous membranes of a person, and therefore are used for the treatment and prevention of immunodeficiency, dysbiosis and related diseases.
Probiotics stimulate the immune system at all levels, as proven by numerous clinical studies.Probiotics and vitamins should not be prescribed for yourself, it is better if a doctor does it.
Mode and physical activity
For the normal functioning of the whole body and the well-being of a person, a regime is very important.
Try to get up and go to bed at the same time, get enough sleep. Relax more, walk in the fresh air. You need to go in for sports, do exercises.
Regular physical activity has a beneficial effect on the immune system.During active physical activity, the general tone of the body rises, the mood improves, which contributes to greater activity and a surge of energy, the blood is enriched with oxygen, sleep and appetite improve. Exercise helps to relieve stress, the body produces endorphins (“hormones of happiness”).
And be sure to walk in the fresh air. If the weather permits, try to spend at least an hour a day outside. Ideally, during daylight hours, because the sun is necessary not only for the production of vitamin D, without sunlight, the level of serotonin (another “hormone of happiness”) in the blood decreases, which is responsible for our good mood.In autumn and winter, the problem of lack of sunlight is especially relevant – we get up after dark, leave work after sunset. Take every opportunity to catch the light of day: go for a walk during your lunch break, be sure to plan your weekend walks.
Quitting bad habits
Bad habits – smoking, alcohol, abuse of drugs and narcotic drugs – greatly weaken the body’s immune system, impair the functioning of many organs, destroy blood vessels, the brain, lungs, and increase the risk of developing diseases.In fact, if you constantly poison yourself with smoking, alcohol, etc., it is difficult to expect good health from the body. Alcohol and nicotine suppress the immune system, as a result of which it ceases to fulfill its protective functions. By the way, many medications can also weaken the immune system, therefore, firstly, you should not thoughtlessly take pills without a doctor’s prescription, and secondly, if you are taking medications, strengthen measures to strengthen the immune system.
There is an intimate relationship between the physical and emotional components of humans.If life does not bring joy and pleasure to a person, then biological mechanisms of self-destruction are triggered. Be positive, enjoy every day – there is always a reason for this. The ability to positively perceive any reality is, without exaggeration, a guarantee of health and longevity.
We hope that our tips will help you become healthier, and that the upcoming fall-winter season will bring you only joy, not illness!
Take blood test for Rh factor- prices in Moscow in INVITRO
Method of determination
Erythrocyte magnetisation, gel filtration method using monoclonal antibodies.Automatic analyzers QWALYS (Diagast), IH-1000 (Bio-Rad).
Whole Blood (with EDTA)
Home visit available
Synonyms: Blood test for Rh factor; Rhesus affiliation; Blood rhesus factor; Rhesus.Rh; Rh type; Rh typing; Rh-factor; Rhesus factor.
Brief description of the study Rh-affiliation
There are five main antigens in the Rhesus system. Rh (D) antigen is the main (most immunogenic) surface erythrocyte antigen of the Rhesus system. It is he who is usually meant under the name “Rh factor”. In about 85% of people, red blood cells carry this protein, so they are classified as Rh-positive (positive). 15% of people do not have it, they are Rh-negative (negative).The presence of the Rh factor does not depend on the group belonging to the AB0 system, on external causes and does not change during life. The Rh factor appears in the early stages of intrauterine development, and in a newborn it is already found in significant quantities. Determination of Rh-affiliation of blood is used in general clinical practice for transfusion of blood and its components, as well as in gynecology and obstetrics when planning and managing pregnancy. Incompatibility of blood according to Rh-belonging during blood transfusion occurs when there is Rh-agglutinogen in the donor’s erythrocytes, and the recipient is Rh-negative.In this case, the Rh-negative recipient begins to develop antibodies directed against the Rh antigen. These antibodies destroy red blood cells. Therefore, it is necessary to transfuse erythrocytes, blood plasma and especially whole blood from a donor to a recipient while strictly observing compatibility not only by blood group, but also by Rh-affiliation. The presence and titer of antibodies to the Rh factor and other alloimmune antibodies already present in the blood can be determined using test No. 140. Determination of the blood group, Rh belonging, the presence of alloimmune anti-erythrocyte antibodies should be carried out during planning or during pregnancy to identify the likelihood of an immunological conflict of the mother and a child who can lead to hemolytic disease of the newborn (see.test No. 140). The onset of Rh-conflict and the development of hemolytic disease of newborns is possible if the pregnant woman is Rh-negative, and the fetus is Rh-positive. If the mother has Rh + (positive) and the fetus has Rh- (negative), the fetus is not at risk of hemolytic disease. Currently, there is a possibility of medical prevention of the development of Rh-conflict and hemolytic disease of the newborn. All Rh negative women during pregnancy should be under medical supervision.It is also necessary to monitor the dynamics of the level of Rh antibodies. There is a small category of Rh-positive individuals who are able to form anti-Rh antibodies. These are persons, on the surface of erythrocytes of which the expression of the normal Rh antigen (“weak” D, Dweak) is significantly reduced or the altered Rh antigen is expressed (partial D, Dpartial). These weak variants of the D antigen in laboratory practice are combined into the Du group, the population frequency of which is about 1%. Recipients containing the Du antigen should be classified as Rh negative and only Rh negative blood should be transfused, as normal D antigen can induce an immune response in these individuals.Donors with the Du antigen qualify as Rh-positive, since transfusion of their blood can induce an immune response in Rh-negative recipients, and in the case of previous sensitization to the D antigen, severe transfusion reactions.
Inheritance of Rh-affiliation of blood
The following concepts are the cornerstone of inheritance patterns. The gene encoding the Rh factor D (Rh) is dominant, the gene d allele to it is recessive (Rh-positive people can have the DD or Dd genotype, Rh-negative people only have the dd genotype).A person receives from each of the parents one gene – D or d, and thus he has three variants of the genotype – DD, Dd or dd. In the first two cases (DD and Dd), a blood test for Rh affiliation will give a positive result. Only with the genotype dd will a person have a negative rhesus. Some variants of the combination of genes that determine the Rh-belonging of the parents and the child. The father has Rh positive (homozygote, genotype DD), the mother has Rh negative (genotype dd): in this case, all children will be Rh positive (100% probability).Father is Rh-positive (heterozygote, genotype Dd), mother is Rh-negative (genotype dd): in this case, the probability of having a child with negative or positive Rh is the same and equal to 50%. The father and mother are heterozygotes for this gene (Dd), both are Rh-positive: in this case, it is possible (with a probability of about 25%) to give birth to a child with a negative Rh.
In the case when the Rh-affiliation of the unborn child requires determination, it is necessary to use a genealogical or genetic method (see.test No. 7207).
For what purpose is Rh-affiliation determined?
Evaluation of Rh-affiliation during pregnancy or preparation for pregnancy, as well as monitoring the presence of alloimmune anti-erythrocyte antibodies, including antibodies to the RhD antigen (see test No. 140), are important for the correct management of pregnancy in Rh-negative women. The risk of developing hemolytic disease of the fetus and newborn in repeated pregnancies can be prevented by the timely administration of Rh-immunoglobulin.
The test is intended to determine the Rh-belonging of potential recipients (examination before hospitalization) and pregnant women or women planning to become pregnant.
What can affect the test result Rh-affiliation
Problems in determining Rh-affiliation Most of the Rh-positive individuals express a sufficient number of antigenic determinants containing all epitopes. In this case, when determining the Rh-affiliation, regardless of the test systems used, there are no problems, and the Rh-affiliation is clearly defined as positive. However, a number of individuals (no more than 1% in the European population) may have difficulties in determining Rh belonging for the following reasons:
- The number of antigenic determinants is reduced by 3-10 times, but they are not structurally changed.This variant of the antigen is called weak, D weak. The degree of decrease in the number of determinants is different, therefore, the agglutination reaction in such patients can take place with varying degrees of severity.
- The number of antigenic determinants may be normal, but structurally altered. Some epitopes are absent on the D antigen determinants (up to five epitopes may be absent simultaneously). This variant of the antigen is called incomplete, variant or partial, D partial. More than 10 such forms of D antigen have been identified in humans.The most common variant is the DVI antigen (the occurrence is not more than 0.1% in the European population).
- The variant of the Rh antigen D el is characteristic of the Asian population, the occurrence is up to 30%. It is manifested by very low expression of antigen D on the surface of erythrocytes. Most often, it is defined as Rh negative by conventional methods. From a clinical point of view, it is important to distinguish between these options, especially in women of childbearing age and when planning a blood transfusion. With the “incomplete” variant (D partial), the formation of antibodies to the “full” D antigen is possible during transfusion of Rh-positive blood or hemocomponents.In the “weak” variant (D weak), the formation of Rh antibodies is unlikely. The approach to the study and to the interpretation of the results of Rh-affiliation of potential recipients and potential donors is different.
90,000 Take care of your hands. Carpal tunnel syndrome – GAUZ GKB 2
Numbness in the neck, pain in the shoulders, tingling in the legs and pain in the lower back are noted by people who spend most of their work and free time at the computer.They can also face another serious problem – carpal tunnel syndrome , which develops due to pinching, edema or infringement in the carpal tunnel of the median nerve that controls the sensitivity of the palm, thumb, index and middle fingers.
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is an occupational disease of people who work mainly at the computer keyboard. As a result of a large number of monotonous movements or an uncomfortable position of the hands while working at the keyboard and mouse, the wrist is in constant tension due to the constant static load on the same muscles.This leads to swelling of the tendons that run near the median nerve, or swelling of the nerve itself.
This is a very common disease, especially among women: during their life, about 10% of all women living on our planet face it. Men get this disease less often. Carpal tunnel syndrome can occur at any age, but most often during hormonal changes in the body, after 40-45 years.
At the very beginning of the disease, most of the sick complain of numbness in the fingers in the morning, passing by noon.A little later, nighttime numbness is added in all fingers of the hand except the little finger, as well as pain, tingling or burning in these fingers. Over time, “daytime complaints” are added to the night and morning symptoms:
- severe numbness and pain in the fingers, if you keep your hands on the weight for a long time.
- “Weakness” and “clumsiness” of the hand: it becomes more difficult for a sick person to hold small objects in their fingers, for example, a needle, pin, ballpoint pen, etc.
- Objects often fall out of hands.
- Subsequently, with severe damage to the median nerve, a noticeable decrease in the sensitivity of the fingers is added to numbness, tingling, burning and pain, up to a complete loss of sensations from light touch, pin prick, etc.
In the absence of adequate treatment, the syndrome carpal tunnel can lead to complete irreversible damage to the median nerve and severe dysfunction of the hand. Sometimes the pain is so intense that it makes it impossible for a person to work.In the presence of the above listed manifestations, we advise you to consult a neurologist.
To prevent the development of carpal tunnel syndrome, it is necessary to bring your workplace in accordance with the rules of ergonomics and interrupt work more often to perform simple exercises for the hands.
Basic rules for working at a computer
- A chair or chair must be with armrests.
- When working with the keyboard, the angle of the arm at the elbow should be straight.
- When working with the mouse, the brush should be straight and rest on the table as far from the edge as possible.
Exercises for hands when working at a computer
- Raise your hands up, firmly clench your fingers into a fist, and then unclench.
- Relax your hands and shake them in the air, gradually raising them to the sides and up.
- Place your palms together in front of your chest and press on the ends of your fingers, tilt your hands to the left and right.
- Place your palms together, and then alternately bring your fingers back to failure for a count of 1-4.
- Now connect the hands and, leaning on the ends of the fingers, move the bases of the hands to the sides, without moving the ends of the fingers.
- Stretch your arms forward and rotate your hands to the sides and inward.
- Make your arms bent, then firmly squeeze and unclench your fingers.
- Bring your elbows to your sides, place your palms forward, and then gradually squeeze and unclench the phalanges of the fingers.
- Now interlace your fingers and make a few squeezing movements.
- Alternately knead your relaxed fingers from tip to base: first on the right, then on the left and vice versa, ending with circular rotational movements.
- Now again press your elbows to your sides, clench your fingers into a fist and rotate your hands alternately in different directions.
- Relax your hands and shake them in the air, lifting them up and down.
All exercises should be repeated several times.
Tunnel cider can significantly complicate your life, worsen your well-being, reduce your ability to work, and will force you to spend time and considerable financial resources for treatment.It is easier to prevent than to cure. Follow the suggested recommendations and be healthy!
Working on Mars in various houses will fill you with energy
Mars in the natal chart is responsible for the activity and energy of a person, the ability to defend their interests both aggressively and more delicately. The planet gives talent and the ability to protect yourself, your needs and demands.
Unworked Mars does not give strength
Traditionally, this planet is associated with war and aggression, since it is dedicated to the Roman god of war Mars (Ares in Greek mythology).If the ancient astrologers considered Saturn to be a great misfortune, then Mars was called a minor misfortune or a minor evil.
Mars has very strong energy and is able to give it to people. He is responsible for the tone, the desire to do something and achieve. Mars is an extremely important planet for doing business and career, because it gives the ability to overcome laziness. Also, Mars in a woman’s horoscope will indicate her ideal man.
However, with a weak development of , Mars does not give this energy. He is able to take away the willpower and desire to do important things, win and just live.You feel apathy, which can even lead to depression.
It is the unworked Mars that is often the reason for our passivity .
Strong and weak Mars
A good study of Mars will allow you to become an energetic and strong person in every sense of the word. Harmonious Mars contributes to the development of the ability to overcome oneself, defend and demonstrate to society their needs. You go through any obstacles, solve problems and difficulties, know how to behave in a difficult situation and are not afraid of competition.
Mars at a low level of development contributes to the emergence of:
- constant, persistent aggressiveness,
Moreover, anger can be directed to two sides: outside and inside. If aggression is directed at the outside world, then this induces hatred of the state, external circumstances and situations.
If anger is turned inward, then you will be constantly dissatisfied with yourself and will begin to engage in self-criticism.Disharmonious Mars here is a synonym for weak energy, bad tone, low vital activity, inability to stand up for oneself. You are passive, inert, afraid to express your opinion and try to adapt to someone else’s, to please other people.
If you have all these negative signs, it means that the energy of Mars is not sufficiently worked out. This means that we need to urgently take measures and transfer Mars to a higher level so that aggression and inaction turn into courage and strong will.
The high energy of Mars, in other words, the Red Planet, brings harmony to life
(Note. For deep study of Mars with astro-correction methods you need a special astrological talent. Find out if you have one)
Study of Mars at home
The quality of the study of Mars depends on how clearly a person follows his chart, his predetermined path. A low study of Mars in the natal chart suggests that you are not going your own way, doing the wrong thing.This creates a conflict between your personality and society. Bad decisions, unsatisfactory results – an attempt by the stars to tell you that you are going the wrong way. It is worth remembering that the path of each person is individual.
The position of Mars in the chart shows the very area of life where you need to make the greatest amount of effort, defend your rights and show perseverance. Working through these specific areas has a positive effect on your whole life, helps you find your purpose.
How Mars needs to be worked out depends on what house it is in. Consider how the position of Mars affects a person depending on his position in the house, and we will understand what you need to do in order to improve your life.
House I characterizes the person himself, his appearance and behavior.
Unworked Mars in the 1st house brings aggression and anger into your life:
- Anger eats up you from the inside and prevents you from concentrating.
- A lot of energy is wasted
To work Mars, I recommend:
- Openly show aggression, anger, discontent.
- Go in for sports.
If you do not accumulate anger inside, then the I house of personality will be balanced. Worked Mars will give you:
- Ability to demonstrate oneself, defend one’s interests.
- Ambitiousness, the ability to achieve goals by means of will and desire, to go for them for a long time and persistently….
Sport will help to cope with inner anger and aggressiveness
This house is responsible for finances and property.
Unworked Mars in the 2nd house can create:
- Unreasonable expenditure of finances and resources.
- Disputes and conflicts over money and property.
To work Mars in the 2nd house, I advise you:
- Tough and aggressive to defend their financial positions.
- Purposefully earn money by investing a lot of effort and energy.
- Count on active income rather than passive income. Creation of your personal project or business will be a good help.
A well-developed Mars will give the arrival of money, and money and finances, in turn, will inspire you to new achievements.
III house is responsible for contacts, communication, communication.
With insufficient study, Mars gives:
- Unreasonable conflicts, disagreements, anger towards people around.
- Difficulty meeting new people.
- Block in communication with the outside world.
“Ignite” the planet you will have from:
- Communication (from gossip to small talk).
- Learning something out of the ordinary.
- New impressions, constant movement of body and mind.
Worked Mars contributes to skill:
- Do many things at the same time.
- Process large amounts of information.
The main thing is that you cannot sit still without work and development. Strive to learn as much new things as possible, and your conflict level will decrease, you will be able to let people near you and communicate with them safely.
Mars occupies a difficult position here, since the IV house in astrology is associated with family, everyday life, and childhood. The planet can create a troubled childhood when parents are overly demanding and strict.
Unworked Mars will be recouped in:
- Conflicts with family and clan, family rejection.
- Real estate disasters: floods, fires, problems with plumbing.
To “ignite” the planet:
- Put all your energy and strength into your home, family.
- Take care of your property: take care of the house, make repairs, etc.
A well-developed Mars in the 4th house will allow you:
- Create a prosperous family, harmoniously equip your home.
- Support your loved ones yourself, and not only need their support and support
Revealing your Mars will help to avoid quarrels and conflicts in the family
V house is associated with pleasure, creativity and children.
Unworked Mars provokes you:
- Problems and conflicts with children.
- Laziness, apathy, inertia.
- Freezing energy (all things stand still).
Here I recommend you:
- Pay attention to children, devote yourself completely to them.
- Do any creative work: draw, write stories, sing.
- Go in for active sports.
- Travel, go to clubs and parties.

90,000 Weak water pressure? Cause and elimination.
– Dad, tell us what you did at work today?
You always say that your profession is very necessary and useful, what useful have you done today?
– Okay, sonny, lie on your tummy, close your eyes, and I will scratch your back and tell you about two useful services rendered to people who turned to me for help. These people are residents of our area, but they live in different houses and are not connected in any way, that is, everyone has their own cause of the problem.
– In the morning I received an application from two tenants, and went to the first address indicated in it.
A girl of about twenty opened the door and said with a smile that she was looking forward to it. She took me to the kitchen, complaining about the weak pressure of the water on the way, and she herself flew into the room.
You begin to perform any work, from simple to complex!
Before taking any action, I needed to analyze, and why does the water flow poorly from the tap? A crane, son, people call a device, when you turn the handles of which, you open and close the water in order to wash or wash your hands.In our professional language, it is called a mixer, as it mixes hot and cold water to a comfortable temperature. So, this hostess had a poor water pressure only in the kitchen. And I determined this in an elementary way, checking how the water runs from the mixer installed in the bathroom, here it ran with great flow and speed. So the reason is a clogged kitchen mixer, and it can clog in three places.
First cause of loss of water pressure and elimination.
– At the end of the “gander”, the correct name is a spout, a mesh is installed – an aerator, breaking one large stream into many small ones.
The most common problem, and easily removable – it is this mesh that clogs.
– I armed myself with an adjustable wrench, unscrewed the aerator and thoroughly rinsed the mesh out of it. There was very little “dirt” in her, and I realized that this was not the reason for the deteriorating pressure.
The second reason for low water pressure and elimination.
– The kitchen mixer is installed on the sink, and is usually connected to the water supply pipes with a flexible hose, which has a smaller internal section than the pipe, and is often clogged exactly at the junction, it can easily “knock out” scale or pieces of rust that have risen from the basement pipes.
This is the second most labor-intensive job where a blockage is likely. Before unscrewing the liner nut, I shut off the water supply to the apartment wiring, this is done with the help of taps installed at the very tie-in to the risers. Then, using the same adjustable wrench, he disassembled the joints.
Here too disappointment awaited me – the absence of the cause of the blockage.
– Why disappointment? Yes, because it is necessary to start the third most laborious work.
– But first, son, than to start it, we have plumbers in our stash “cunning way”, called – squeezing.
It consists in the following: You twist one of the flexible connections, then you open the shut-off valve, the one on the pipe to which you screwed the eyeliner. You direct the hanging end of the second eyeliner into the bucket, and open the corresponding crane to the full. You squeeze the spout with your palm, and slowly open the crane box for which we have already served some water. Due to the fact that the spout is squeezed by the hand, the water has no choice but to run into the hanging end of the eyeliner – into the bucket. Thus, she is water, she herself and flushes the blockage.
The same “operation”, if necessary, you do in the other direction, that is, you close the open tap before us, disconnect the eyeliner, and wind the one that was hanging in the bucket. You repeat the “tricky way” – squeezing.
The benefits of these manipulations can be judged by looking inside the bucket, if there is scale and rust on the bottom, then the flushing was successful.
Then we screw both nuts of the liners into place, open the water and check the pressure. And oh, a miracle – he is super-duper!
But, soon the fairy tale will tell itself, but it will not be done soon!
What to do if this does not help either? Like mine today.
The third reason for poor water pressure and elimination.
– I again turned off the water, unscrewed the crane-boxes, after removing the handles (lambs) from them, and with a knitting needle similar to those that your grandmother knits mittens for you, I cleaned the holes inside the mixer. Having done these actions, it would not be bad to wash everything that you scrubbed, for this you supply water by slightly opening the taps at the inlet, one by one.
Then I collected everything and washed my hands.
– That’s exactly how it is, son, I helped one of the hostesses today.
– And then?
– And what next … Next, she gave me hot tea, treating me to pies with potatoes.
– No, well, then, how did you help the second person?
– Sleep all.
– Well dad, well tell me …
The fourth reason for low water pressure and elimination.
– The second application came, son, from my grandfather. Due to his age, he also could not fix the problem, and he doesn’t know how, but he doesn’t read my blog.
He had a weak pressure of cold water throughout the wiring, that is, in the kitchen mixer, and in the bathroom, and in the toilet cistern, water barely entered.
You begin to perform any work, from simple to complex!
First of all, I went to his neighbors, who live one floor below, one floor above. I asked if there were any problems with the pressure? It turned out not, so the reason is only with him.
Recently, in order to save water, all residents of our country were obliged to install water meters. In order for them not to fail due to scale, we mount a coarse filter (FGO) in front of them. So it is precisely such a filter that clogs up, it is installed at the very beginning of the wiring and, accordingly, with a blockage, the water pressure is absent at all points of analysis.
I turned off the water, unscrewed the storage cup from the body and washed the mesh inside it. Then I collected it, everything returned to normal.
– Now we often install self-cleaning filters, but mainly on collector wiring, the principle of operation is the same as that of the FGO. In both, the nets must be replaced if necessary, well, that’s when they are completely clogged or rotten, but basically it is enough to rinse and put them back in place.
Fifth reason for low water pressure.
– The landlord can do the work that I told you today on his own, but it happens that nothing has helped, it means that the place where the wiring is inserted into the riser may be clogged, or the pipes are completely overgrown with rye from the inside. In this case, the tenant has no choice but to contact the service company.
– Did you explain everything clearly?
– And where does this scale and pieces of rust come from?
– When repairing the filling pipes that are in the basement or in the technical floor, we close the water supply for the whole house.We completely drain the system, and upon completion of the work we fill it, water flows through large-diameter pipes by pressure, rust breaks off and carries it around the apartments, in places of the smallest internal section it accumulates, or in filters.
