Why New Jersey needs millennials
Asbury Park Press
The urban landscape offered in towns like Asbury Park and Jersey City make them more attractive to millennials, aka Generation Y. But the rest of New Jersey is unappealing to them. There's a lot at stake for the Garden State. The generation has 75 million people, and they aren't drawn to the landscape of malls and homes that suited WWII and Boomer families migrating from inner cities to safe, quiet suburbs.

Architecture software tutorials: Which are the best out there?
ArchDaily
In contemporary architecture practice, proficiency in an ever-widening array of architecture software is becoming increasingly important. For almost every job in the field, it is no longer enough to bring a skilled mind and a pencil; different jobs may require different levels of expertise and different types of software, but one thing that seems universally accepted is that some level of involvement with software is now a requirement.

There are tons of architecture job openings these days; Why aren't you hired yet?
Archinect
If you're actively seeking work and you can't find a position, odds are your imagination of what constitutes a job in architecture may be holding you back. The AIA estimates that there are over 600 different careers within architecture, many of which stem from increased interstices between technology (especially 3-D graphic modeling and printing) and emphasis on sustainability and other so-called green practices. However, if you've been actively participating in the 21st century thus far, you won't find the changes mind-blowing: you will simply need to take into consideration these fresh realities of the job market.

Flipping for fast funds: Home rehab programs on the rise
By Archita Datta Majumdar
The housing market is looking strong, and the home rehab segment especially bright. Home rehab, popularly called flipping, is slowly gaining momentum with Americans who want their dream homes to come in affordable prices. Home rehab programs are focused on bridging the gap between good and pricey homes that can hardly cater to the rising demand from upcoming homeowners across the country. These programs are offering solutions to a wide cross section of consumers — from the actual homeowners to investors.

2 natural rebar alternatives for concrete
The Journal of the American Institute of Architects
Concrete is the world's most common building material and the second-most consumed substance after water. In particular, steel-reinforced concrete dominates the AEC sector, where its combined resistance of tensile and compressive forces enables the construction of tall and long-span structures. Despite its near-ubiquitous use, however, steel-reinforced concrete has a fundamental drawback: Given the corrosive tendencies of ferrous metals, it is at best a temporary material, requiring constant upkeep.
