The 10 hottest neighborhoods in America for 2017


Eliot Oregon

Move over, New York and San Francisco.

Real estate company Redfin recently released its list of the hottest neighborhoods of 2017, and locales in city-adjacent towns such as Oakland, California, and Bellevue, Washington, dominated over their urban counterparts.

The ranking looked at neighborhoods that experts expect to become up-and-coming hotspots, and highlights a growing trend: Homebuyers want the amenities of both suburban and city life. They're looking for big, renovated houses minus the price tag a place in the heart of a major city would bring. 

"While many of 2017's hottest neighborhoods come with longer commutes, Redfin agents say they offer homebuyers the best balance of everything: quick access to public transit, trendy shopping and dining options, plus larger move-in ready homes with charm and price tags that are a little easier to bear," the report states.

To predict what will be the hottest neighborhoods of 2017, Redfin measured neighborhood growth by analyzing the number of pageviews from visitors to Redfin.com and the number of homes favorited by users on the site. Redfin also consulted local agents to confirm which areas are heating up in popularity. 

From turn-of-the-century homes outside New Orleans to Silicon Valley-adjacent pads in Sunnyvale, California, read on to see the hottest neighborhoods for 2017.

10. Tremé — New Orleans

Median sale price: $199,200

Median number of days on the market: 261

Average sale-to-list percentage: 89.3%

Redfin agent Caren Morgan says:

"Tremé is definitely becoming an 'it' place in New Orleans. It's right on the border of the French Quarter, but somewhat less expensive and historically not as trendy. The neighborhood boasts a lot of turn-of-the-century homes with beautiful architectural details, which are generally very popular, especially among out-of-state buyers."

9. Greenfield — Aurora, Colorado

Median sale price: $455,000

Median number of days on the market: 42

Average sale-to-list percentage: 97.6%

Redfin agent Stephanie Collins says:

"Greenfield has a community pool, a playground, tennis courts, a fishing pond and many trails for people wanting the outdoor, active Colorado lifestyle. Located in the highly rated Cherry Creek School district, it's a prime location — just five minutes away from the Southlands Mall District, with its retailers, movie theater and many restaurant options."

8. Hollywood Park — Sacramento, California

Median sale price: $345,000

Median number of days on the market: 9

Average sale-to-list percentage: 100.2%

Redfin agent Matt Jones says:

"As people get priced out of other neighborhoods near city center, I've seen an increase in interest in Hollywood Park in particular. It's one of the few neighborhoods that's in really close proximity to downtown and yet still has some affordable homes available. A lot of the buyers I've worked with appreciate the unique older homes there and they are willing to sacrifice certain other amenities (like higher Walk Score ratings) in order to have charming homes with character that are still affordable and just a ten minute commute to some of the hippest areas in Sacramento."

The creator of a bogus diet popularized by celebrities like Kate Hudson has been arrested



The man largely responsible for popularizing the alkaline diet, a bogus eating regimen based on the idea that certain foods cause your body to produce acid, has been arrested, the BBC reported.

Robert O. Young, who wrote the book "The pH Miracle," claimed diseases were caused by acidity, a claim that inspired one of the most popular food writers in the UK, Natasha Corrett. Young was convicted of two charges of practicing medicine without a license last year after he was found to have bought his PhD online, according to the BBC.

The alkaline diet gained some traction after Kate Hudson lauded it as the way she keeps in shape at this year's Golden Globes, but the idea has actually been around for a while. The idea behind the alkaline diet is that certain foods like meat, wheat and sugar cause your body to produce acid, which leads to health problems such as bone loss, muscle loss, and back pain.

This is actually bogus, as what you eat has very little impact on the acid concentrations in your blood. As my colleague Jessica Orwig reported, blood pH levels hover around 7.4 — neither extremely acidic (pH level of 0) or basic (pH level of 14).

While what you eat can impact the acidity of your urine, your kidneys work hard to keep your blood pH levels steady. One small study, for example, found that a diet high in protein and low in carbs had a strong impact on urinary acidity but appeared to cause very little change in blood pH.

The BBC reported that Young advised a young woman who was dying from breast cancer, British army officer Naima Houder-Mohammed. Houder-Mohammed reportedly paid Young thousands of dollars for his alkaline treatment, which predominantly consisted of intravenous baking soda. According to the BBC's reporting, Houder-Mohammed and her family ended up paying Young more than $77,000 (£62,700) for the treatment for his advice.

Houder-Mohammed reportedly stayed at Young's facility, the "pH Miracle Ranch," for three months, until her condition worsened and she was taken to hospital. She died there aged 27.

In 2011, the Medical Board of California began an undercover investigation at Young's ranch, where they discovered none out of 15 cancer patients outlived their prognoses. One woman died from congestive heart failure, after being given 33 intravenous sodium bicarbonate drips over 31 days at a cost of £448 each.

Young is currently facing up to 3 years in prison.

Meet 15 people who brave freezing temperatures to live in the Arctic Circle


Life On The Line Photos

As we near the end of January, brutal winter has set in in some parts of the world.

The Arctic Circle is one of those places. Average temperatures in the summer hover around 50° F, and in the winter they can drop below -50°F in many places. 

While the Arctic is not very populated, people do inhabit the area. Photographer Cristian Barnett decided to document the lives of those people who make their homes on or near the invisible, dotted line of the Arctic Circle. In 2006, Barnett began his series, "Life On The Line," which was released as a book last year.

"The Arctic Circle is much more than just hunters and polar bears," Barnett told Business Insider. "There are many thriving, modern settlements where you're more likely to meet a hairdresser than a reindeer herder."

Barnett told us about 15 of the people he photographed.

What marijuana really does to your body and brain



Marijuana's official designation as a Schedule 1 drug— something with "no accepted medical use" — means it is pretty tough to study.

Yet both a growing body of research and numerous anecdotal reports link cannabis with several health benefits, ranging from pain relief to helping with certain forms of epilepsy. In addition, researchers say there are many other potential ways marijuana might affect health that they want to understand better.

A massive new report released in January 2017 by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine (NASEM) helps sum up exactly what we know— and perhaps more importantly, what we don't — about the science of weed.

SEE ALSO: 11 key findings from one of the most comprehensive reports ever on the health effects of marijuana

DON'T MISS: Why psychedelics like magic mushrooms kill the ego and fundamentally transform the brain

Marijuana can make you feel good.

One of weed's active ingredients, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), interacts with our brain's reward system, the part that has been primed to respond to things that make us feel good, like eating and sex.

When overexcited by drugs, the reward system creates feelings of euphoria. This is also why some studies have suggested that excessive use can be a problem in some people: The more often you trigger that euphoria, the less you may feel for other rewarding experiences.

It the short-term, it can also make your heart race.

Within a few minutes of inhaling marijuana, your heart rate can increase by 20 to 50 beats a minute. This can last anywhere from 20 minutes to three hours, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse

Still, the new report found insufficient evidence to support or refute the idea that cannabis might increase the overall risk for a heart attack. The same report, however, also found some limited evidence that smoking could be a trigger for a heart attack.

Weed may also help relieve some types of pain ...

Pot also contains cannabidiol (CBD), and this chemical — while not responsible for getting you high — is thought to be responsible for many of marijuana's therapeutic effects, from pain relief to a potential treatment for certain kinds of childhood epilepsy.

The new report also found conclusive or substantial evidence (the most definitive levels) that cannabis can be an effective treatment for chronic pain, which could have to do with both CBD and THC. Pain is also "by far the most common" reason people request medical marijuana, according to the report.

This tuxedo rental startup wants to completely change the way guys dress for weddings


The Black Tux

Few wedding preparations are less glamorous than renting a tux for the big day.

The fact is, most tuxedo and rental suits just don't look great. They're poorly tailored and usually made from low-quality fabric by manufacturers that also pump out uniforms for service staff. In a word, they look bad.

When Andrew Blackmon got married, he figured there had to be a better way. That's why in 2013, he and Patrick Coyne started The Black Tux, an ecommerce-based formalwear rental startup. Blackmon and Coyne serve as co-CEOs.

The Los Angeles-based company has raised $30 million in venture capital, and it now does $2 million a month in sales with a 200% increase year over year, Blackmon told Business Insider. But the way the company approaches the rental business is fundamentally different from the strategy behind traditional brick-and-mortar options like Tailored Brands' rental giant Men's Wearhouse, which has seen falling sales since 2015.

The Black Tux

The Black Tux takes a different approach to the rental garment, creating one made from higher-quality fabrics that are sourced from Italian mills, and that is designed to be worn fewer times than a traditional rental. Suit rentals start at $95, and tuxedos start at $110.

"We wanted the suit to feel closer to what you would buy for $1,000 in a retail setting," Blackmon said. "One of the biggest innovations [of the Black Tux] was creating a rental garment with a high-quality fabric maker."

The company just created its first "collection" of new styles, including more adventurous fabrics like plaid tuxedos and velvet jackets.

Garments — both suits and tuxedos — are shipped from the company's West Coast warehouse up to two weeks before the customer's event. This allows plenty of time to ensure it fits correctly. Customers must then return the product within three days after the event has passed.

To clean these garments properly, Blackmon says the company was forced to take its dry-cleaning operations in-house. That means The Black Tux ended up creating one of the largest dry-cleaning operations on the West Coast, even rivaling fellow startup Rent the Runway, which famously has one of America's largest.

"We found that when we were using external vendors, we couldn't get quite the quality we wanted. Most were experts in linens," Blackmon said. "We wanted to make sure the way we were running the dry-cleaning operation was of the highest caliber with the most experienced people."

Fit is another thing that the company says it takes more seriously than its competitors, and it's all done by algorithm. At the company's founding, it purchased a set of data points for men's military uniforms. Last year, a data scientist was hired to combine customers' measurements with the existing data and improve the rate of first-time fit dramatically. The Black Tuxedo

Blackmon says he sees his customers in three categories: 

  • A groom who wants to match his groomsman, but who doesn't want to pay the hundreds it would take to do so at retail price.
  • A man who wants an outfit that's either more stylish or more interesting than what he currently owns, but who doesn't necessarily want to own something like that.
  • The prom customer, who usually skews younger and is attracted to the company because of its slimmer-fitting offerings.

Blackmon says he's seen a shift in his customers' preferences over time. In the beginning, the concierge team did a lot of "style consultation." Not anymore.

"Guys come to us with an idea of exactly what they want," Blackmon said. "Guys care more. They're more specific. They're more interested in expressing themselves."

That's something Blackmon is seeking to foster, especially since the company's official stance on treating its garments is to essentially have fun with it. He told Business Insider that the company's intake warehouse routinely receives soaking wet garments, pairs of pants that have been cut into shorts, or other products that arrive with their pockets stuffed with illegal substances.

"It is a little frustrating when they come back soaking wet, but if that's what having fun is, then we're totally OK," Blackmon said.

Trump Hotels is planning a massive US expansion


trump hotel las vegas

There may be a whole lot more Trump hotels in the US.

Speaking at an industry conference in Los Angeles, Eric Danziger, the CEO of Trump's hotel management company, said that the firm is planning to triple the number of US locations, according to a report from Bloomberg.

"There are 26 major metropolitan areas in the US, and we’re in five," said Danziger. "I don’t see any reason that we couldn't be in all of them eventually."

Danziger said that Trump Hotels is already looking to expand with luxury properties in Dallas, Seattle, Denver and San Francisco according to Bloomberg. Additionally, the CEO said that plans to move into Hong Kong and some other international markets were no longer happening and the company's expansion would be mainly US-focused for now, saying the company will have a "domestic emphasis for the next four or eight years."

Trump turned over his business to his sons Eric and Donald Jr. when he took over the Oval Office, however, his refusal to fully divest from his companies has raised serious conflict of interest and ethics questions.

The hotels have caused considerable concern as ethics experts have questioned whether foreign diplomats and interests could stay in the Trump hotels — especially the new Washington DC location near the White House — to curry favor with the administration.

In addition, Danziger said that the first of the company's smaller Scion-branded hotel will open sometime in 2017 and they plan to expand the brand to other smaller markets.

Trump's hotels are taking over America in a huge expansion — take a look inside the newest location



This week at the Americas Lodging Investment Summit in Los Angeles, Eric Danziger, the CEO of President Donald Trump's hotel-management company, announced that it plans on tripling the number of Trump hotels in the US. More specific plans are already on their way in Dallas, Seattle, Denver and San Francisco. 

Last October marked the grand opening of the latest hotel to be branded with the Trump name: the Trump International Hotel in Washington, DC. The hotel is located inside the Old Post Office Pavilion, which dates back to 1899 and required $200 million in renovations.

While the DC location stayed on track to open ahead of schedule— it hasn't been without a few hiccups. Since its soft opening in September the hotel has had protesters outside its doors.

Let's take a look inside.

7 diet 'truths' you should actually ignore



Drink hot lemon and pepper to boost your metabolism. Do a juice cleanse for better skin. Cut calories to lose weight.

No matter your diet goal, chances are you've received conflicting advice, and no matter how hard you've tried, not all of it has worked.

This is because many of the diet tips and tricks you may know to be true are, in fact, doing more harm than good.

In order to sift through what can be an overwhelming amount of diet advice, we asked clinical nutritionist and dietitian Filip Koidis of W1 Nutritionist which common diet "truths" and myths we should be ignoring.

From detoxing to packing your diet with superfoods, these are the biggest myths in the world of food and nutrition, alongside the advice you should be listening to instead.

SEE ALSO: 11 fitness 'truths' that are doing more harm than good

DON'T MISS: Doing a detox is possibly the worst way to start the new year

Myth: Detoxing is a great way to lose weight.


According to Koidis, even the word "detox" is incorrect in this instance"If you have any kind of toxicity from a substance, that’s a medical emergency," he said. "Detoxing with pepper or a pineapple extract wouldn’t really help."

He added that most detox products don't specify which toxins they help you eliminate from your body. "The only reason you feel better is you’re eating fruit and vegetables and you’re more organized," he said. "The weight loss is just down to extreme calorific deficit."

Instead, he said the best way to "detox" is to keep your organs — such as your liver, kidney, and lungs — healthy. He added that if you want to try something different, many studies show that fasting can help re-calibrate your liver and blood levels. "If you can incorporate that into your routine, that would be great."

Myth: Smoothies and juices are a healthy meal substitute.

Wrong again.

"When it comes to juicing, one of the issues is that you get lazy gut," Koidis said. "You get used to being fed the mush consistency of food, so when you start eating normal food, you get bloating, indigestion, etc."

He added that you also have less control of what you're eating with a juice or a smoothie.

"In a smoothie you can chuck in five or six different pieces of fruit, but if you were to eat them, you wouldn’t even go through half the portion," he said. "When it comes to weight management and trying to control your gut hormones, you’re tripping them up if you start juicing too much."

Myth: Cutting calories is the most important thing when trying to lose weight.

This isn't necessarily the case, according to Koidis.

"Dealing with calories is very old school nutrition," he said. "The whole ethos and philosophy of what a calorie means and how that translates into energy has been disproven."

Instead, he said people should be focus on the macronutrients — the protein, fat, and carbohydrate content — of their food. "When you’re trying to do any weight loss intervention, this is more important than calories," he said. 

Tailor your nutrition around your exercise routine and improve your sleep patterns instead. "Many studies have shown that 95% of people that just count calories in order to lose weight always fail," Koidis said.

Trump's Mar-a-Lago club just doubled its new membership fee to $200,000



It just got more expensive to share a resort with the president.

The Trump Organization's premiere Florida property, The Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, has doubled its initiation fee for new members to $200,000, according to CNBC sources

CNBC notes that there's no way to know if the price increase is due to rising demand for memberships, but there's no doubt the club has enjoyed a higher profile as of late. The changes went into effect January 1.

President Donald Trump visited the club multiple times as both candidate and president-elect. He will use the resort as his winter White House, and is planning a trip there as soon as February 3, according to The New York Times.

The initiation fee was previously $200,000 up until 2012, when it was cut down to $100,000 following the Bernie Madoff scandal. To retain access to the resort, members must also pay $14,000 in yearly dues.

The resort itself is 20 acres of land, with a 20,000-square-foot ballroom, beach club, large pool area, tennis courts, and restaurants. Trump purchased it in 1985 for $10 million before turning it into the club it stands as now. It counts Marvel Entertainment CEO Isaac Perlmutter and New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft among its members.

He asked people who had been happily married for at least 10 years to explain what lessons they had learned and would pass down to others. He also asked anyone who had been divorced to explain what had gone wrong — which led to some of the most interesting response. 

Over 1,500 people responded. Here, we speak with Manson about his experience and one of the most valuable pieces of advice he learned.
