WTHR Channel 13 reports that the Indianapolis Metro Police are investigating a break-in at the Indiana Blood Center, which they found ransacked with a computer equipment missing, apparently taken by the intruders. So far, the IMPD has determined that someone broke a window glass by throwing a brick through it. A stronger safety glass, used in doors, such as tempered or laminated cannot be broken as easily as standard window glass. If the business or residence is susceptible to break-ins, then glass can be replaced in the windows that will make it much harder to break. They have recovered blood and print evidence from the crime scene. The blood center stated that neither employee nor donor information was taken, or was ever accessible.

It’s stinkbug season in Indianapolis, according to a report by WCNC. Peter Jentsch, an entomologist from Cornell University, says that these insects start being active in March and April—but their objective is to find a way out of your house. They’ll try to come back inside starting September to shield themselves from winter. Jentsch states that stinkbugs are more of a nuisance than a threat. They won’t eat your things and they don’t bite. The annoyance comes from their defense mechanism. When threatened, they secrete a substance that tastes and smells foul, hence their name. You may simply leave the bugs alone, and let them complete their journey out of your house. However, if you have kids or pets in the house, it’s only a matter of time before you get a whiff of the stink.

Probably the most common door choice is wood. It comes in various finishes, like oak, walnut, and pine, among others. It is easy for a business owner to find a style that would go perfectly with the buildings interior and exterior. This is a good choice as it gives the establishment that high-end look.

Glass has been widely used as an architectural and interior design material to evoke class, simplicity, and elegance. Glass in Indianapolis homes or offices never fails to transform an area into a sleek and modern place. Truly, without glass, interior design will never achieve the level of art and sophistication it has today. Lighting is another important aspect of interior design, whether for home or business. Since glass works well with light, it is not surprising that many designers utilize this material to enhance the aesthetics of a space while keeping it functional at the same time.
