He says anything lower than eight degrees below your normal house temperature could freeze pipes. Plus it’ll cost you more money to crank the heat back up when you return home. “Typically after Christmas we’ll have half a dozen calls with frozen apartments or frozen houses and busted water lines and everything else because they typically shut the thermostat off  or leave a window cracked op…

Revving up supply and demand as ‘impact investing’ turns 10 years old (podcast)

A decade ago, no one had heard of AirBnB, Uber, Spotify, Instagram or Snap. Or “impact investing.” The term was coined, or at least adopted, at a 2007 gathering hosted by the Rockefeller Foundation at their Bellagio retreat center on Lake Como in the Italian alps. There was a follow-on Bellagio gathering in 2008 as well, so we’re straddling 2017 and 2018 for the 10-year anniversary.
