Annual Marvin “Joe” Curry Veterans Powwow Cancelled Amid Ongoing COVID-19 Response for 2020   

Cache   

ALLEGANY TERRITORY, SALAMANCA, N.Y. – Lingering concerns over the sustained nationwide COVID-19 response has prompted organizers of the annual Marvin “Joe” Curry Veterans Powwow to cancel the event for 2020.

The Seneca Nation has presented the annual celebration of Native American culture for the past 30 years. The powwow, which features a series of exhilarating dance and drum competitions, attracts competitors and visitors from across the United States and Canada. It is one of the largest powwow celebrations in the northeast.

“The powwow is about community, our community here on the Seneca Territory and the community of friends and families who join us each year from throughout Indian Country,” said Seneca Nation Councilor Tina Abrams, co-chair of the Powwow committee. “With everyone’s best interest in mind, the right decision is to suspend our celebration until we can again welcome everyone from far and wide back to Salamanca next year.”

The powwow honors Native American veterans and is named in honor
of Marvin “Joe” Curry, a member of the Seneca Nation of Indians’ Snipe Clan, who led a long and distinguished career of military service in the United States Navy, serving two tours of duty in the Korean War and also serving in the Vietnam War.

Abrams is thankful for the devotion and commitment of the committee members and said the powwow committee will soon begin planning for a 2021 celebration.

“Every community is adjusting to this worldwide situation. We are disappointed, but we know this is the right decision,” Abrams said. “The dancers will dance, the drums will sound, and we will all raise our voices in song again next year.”

TFC Fans Forum : Tamworth FC needs our help

Subject: Tamworth FC needs our help
Posted: 06 Apr 2020 at 4:16pm

What I'm saying is that the whole point of football for me is the excitement and the enjoyment of the great moments so a promotion that was achieved via a fax from the Southern League in June wouldn't really achieve that for me.

It would be a real empty feeling. The '09 final day celebration at Telford was amazing. Given the events of the last few weeks, ppg would just be a bit hollow. I'd sooner win it on merit whenever we restart.

Canadian Grand Prix Latest F1 Race to be Postponed   

Cache   

The Canadian Grand Prix is the latest race of the 2020 Formula One season to be called off amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The event, scheduled to take place on June 14 in Montreal, has been postponed with no new date set.

It becomes the seventh Grand Prix to be postponed while both the Australian Grand Prix and the Monaco Grand Prix were cancelled.

“We have been working closely with our friends at the Canadian Grand Prix over the past few weeks and support them in taking this necessary decision to ensure the safety of fans and the F1 community,” said F1 chairman Chase Carey.

“We always look forward to travelling to the incredible city of Montreal and while we will all have to wait a bit longer, we will put on a great show when we arrive later this year.”

The 2020 Formula One season is also now delayed until June at the earliest, but appears unlikely to go ahead at all, with the French Grand Prix pencilled in for June 28 to start the campaign.

Carey’s comments indicate they’re hopeful of getting the season underway, referencing a race in Montreal later in the year.

Seasonal challenges may make rescheduling the Canadian Grand Prix problematic, with Montreal experiencing bitterly long and cold winters.

Canadian Grand Prix president Francois Dumontier said: “I am proud to see how such wonderful initiatives and technical advancements stemming from Formula 1 are being applied in a time of crisis.

“At the moment it is crucial that all of our energies be put together to overcome COVID-19. We will welcome you with open arms at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve as soon as it is safe to do so.”

The Austrian Grand Prix remains scheduled for July 5, followed by the British Grand Prix at Silverstone on July 19.

Silverstone has been speculated as a potential hub for a few races, given numerous F1 teams are based in England near the course.

The Open Cancelled for 2020, 150th Pushed Back   

Cache   

The Royal & Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews (The R&A) have confirmed that this year’s Open has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

The cancellation of The Open, due to be played at Sandwich’s Royal St George’s, marks the first major to be scrapped for 2020.

The Masters and the PGA Championship remain hopeful of being rescheduled, while US Open organisers are ambitious aiming to play in June.

St George’s will now host the 2021 Open from 11-18 July, while with the Old Course at St Andrews now hosting the 150th Open in 2022 from 10-17 July.

It’s the first time that golf’s original championship has been cancelled since World War Two. The Open was first played in 1860.

“The R&A has decided to cancel The Open in 2020 due to the current COVID-19 pandemic,” the statement read. “The Championship will next be played at Royal St George’s in 2021.

“The Open was due to be played in Kent from 12-19 July but it has been necessary to cancel the Championship based on guidance from the UK Government, the health authorities, public services and The R&A’s advisers.”

Irishman Shane Lowry won last year’s Open played at Portrush in Northern Ireland.

R&A chief executive Martin Slumbers said: “There are many different considerations that go into organising a major sporting event of this scale.

“We rely on the support of the emergency services, local authorities and a range of other organisations to stage the Championship and it would be unreasonable to place any additional demands on them when they have far more urgent priorities to deal with.

“In recent weeks we have been working closely with those organisations as well as Royal St George’s, St Andrews Links Trust and the other golf bodies to resolve the remaining external factors and have done so as soon as we possibly could. We are grateful to all of them for their assistance and co-operation throughout this process.”

Usain Bolt nieuw gezicht Europese campagne Allianz Direct   

Cache   

Online verzekeraar Allianz Direct (voorheen Allsecur) start vanaf vandaag met een nieuwe Europese reclamecampagne waarin de Olympische legende Usain Bolt de hoofdrol speelt. Om het internationale karakter van het nieuwe label te benadrukken en zich breder te profileren dan alleen autoverzekeringen, is Allianz Direct een lange termijn samenwerking aangegaan met the fastest man alive. Deze samenwerking sluit ook aan bij de rol van moederbedrijf Allianz als wereldwijde verzekeringspartner van de Olympische en Paralympische beweging vanaf 2021.

In oktober 2019 zijn twee van de vier online merken van Allianz (Allsecur in Nederland en Duitsland) samengevoegd tot één Europees verzekeringslabel; Allianz Direct. In 2020 volgen ook Italië (Genialloyd) en Spanje (Fénix Directo). Door de toevoeging ‘Direct’ werd al duidelijk dat mobiel en digitaal bij de verzekeraar voorop staan. In deze eerste Allianz Direct campagne wordt de snelheid waarmee een autoverzekering kan worden vergeleken en afgesloten onderstreept. Zo kan de klant binnen twintig seconden een premie berekenen; niet morgen, maar nu.

Bart Schlatmann, CEO Allianz Direct, licht toe: “We zijn zeer verheugd over deze samenwerking. Usain Bolt staat voor snelheid, professionaliteit, hard werken, innovatie en is de belichaming van de moderne digitale mens.  Zo laten we ons leiden door de wensen van de klant en kun je bij ons online op een snelle, toegankelijke en persoonlijke manier een product afsluiten. Dat is belangrijk, want tegenwoordig weten mensen heel goed wat zij willen en wanneer zij dat willen. Het moet makkelijk en snel zijn. We begrijpen immers goed dat klanten liever tijd besteden aan andere dingen. Allianz Direct wil hierin ondersteunen; op het moment dat je een auto koopt wil je ook zo snel mogelijk een autoverzekering afsluiten. Daarom bieden we in twintig seconden een online premie en kun je direct de autoverzekering afsluiten en online beheren.”

Usain Bolt zegt over de samenwerking: “Ik voel mij vereerd dat ik de komende jaren het gezicht mag zijn van deze Europese campagne. Allianz Direct staat voor snelheid, digitaal en gemak; waardes waar ik mij zeker goed in kan vinden en die bij mij passen. De eerste commercial is reeds opgenomen en ik kijk uit naar de toekomstige opnames die nog gaan volgen, want de plannen zijn veelbelovend!”


          

Zakelijke leaserijders kiezen vooral in Noord-Holland voor elektrisch   

Cache   

Zakelijke leaserijders kiezen met name in de provincie Noord-Holland voor elektrisch (12%). Gevolgd door de provincies Utrecht (11%) en Gelderland (8%). Leaserijders die kiezen voor elektrisch rijden wonen het vaakst in Amsterdam, Rotterdam en Utrecht. Van alle elektrische modellen is de Tesla Model 3 in 2019 het meest besteld. Dit blijkt uit een eigen data-analyse van Athlon Nederland over 2018 en 2019.

Elektrisch rijden heeft de afgelopen twee jaar onder leaserijders een sprong gemaakt. Het aantal bestellingen voor een elektrisch model is onder leaserijders van Athlon in 2019 meer dan verdubbeld ten opzichte van 2018. In vergelijking met conventionele auto’s zijn het vooral mannen (76%) die ervoor kiezen om elektrisch te rijden. Van alle bedrijven met een gemiddeld aandeel EV in het wagenpark, is een kwart binnen de branche ‘productie en distributie van handel in elektriciteit, aardgas, stoom en gekoelde lucht’. Op de tweede plaats staat de branche ‘openbaar bestuur, overheidsdiensten en verplichte sociale verzekeringen’ (22%) gevolgd door de branche ‘financiële instellingen’ (18%).

Tesla Model 3 populairste elektrische leaseauto
Zowel in de top 3 van populairste elektrische modellen, als in de top 3 van meest bestelde leaseauto’s ongeacht brandstofsoort, staat de Tesla Model 3 met kop en schouders bovenuit. Van alle bestellingen van elektrische modellen bij Athlon Nederland was bijna 60% een Tesla Model 3. Een tweede plaats gaat naar de Kia Niro (11%). Hiermee wist de Niro de Hyundai Kona, die in 2018 nog de toppositie bekleedde, te passeren. In 2018 hadden Volkswagen (12%) en Nissan (9,4%) nog een plek in de top 3 meest bestelde elektrische auto’s. Niels van den Hoogen, commercieel directeur  Athlon Nederland: ‘De groeiende interesse in en de bestellingen van elektrische leaseauto’s in het afgelopen jaar zijn ook heel duidelijk in onze boeken. Vooral de Tesla Model 3 is erg populair. Zeker vanaf eind juni 2019, toen bekend werd dat de bijtelling zou gaan wijzigen. Het feit dat er nog niet veel alternatieven in deze prijsklasse op de Nederlandse markt zijn speelt ook mee.’

Top 5 elektrisch model 2019                                      Top 5 elektrisch model 2018
1. Tesla Model 3           57,7%                                      1. Hyundai Kona           21,5%
2. Kia Niro                    11,0%                                      2. Volkswagen Golf       12,0%
3. Hyundai Kona           7,0%                                        3. Nissan Leaf              9,4%
4. Volkswagen Golf       4,6%                                        4. Jaguar I-Pace           8,3%
5. Nissan Leaf              4,4%                                        5. Tesla Model S          8,3%

Volkswagen blijft favoriet onder zakelijke leaserijders
De groeiende voorkeur voor elektrische auto’s onder leaserijders, zorgde ook voor beweging in de top 5 automerken van alle typen brandstof. In 2018 domineerden Volkswagen (14,4%), Renault (11,4%) en Peugeot (11,2%) de top 3. De introductie van de Tesla Model 3 heeft gezorgd voor een verschuiving. Volkswagen is de enige die haar positie opnieuw wist te claimen in 2019. ‘Vanaf januari 2020 gelden er andere bijtellingsregels. Toch verwachten wij dat de vraag naar elektrische modellen blijft toenemen. Elektrisch rijden is nog steeds veel voordeliger dan de alternatieve brandstofauto. En we zien dat het positieve sentiment rondom elektrisch rijden ook toeneemt, mede dankzij de positieve ervaringen van de huidige groep leaserijders. De komende jaren zal elektrisch rijden in Europa makkelijker worden gemaakt, ook vanwege de beschikbaarheid van laadpalen. Samen met klanten en leveranciers willen wij een bijdrage leveren aan het verduurzamen van de wereld, en dat doen we ook door elektrisch rijden te stimuleren’, aldus Niels van den Hoogen.

Top 5 automerk (alle typen brandstof) 2019               Top 5 automerk (alle typen brandstof) 2018
1. Volkswagen              13,7%                                      1. Volkswagen              14,4%

Damon Motorcycles en BlackBerry QNX revolutioneren motorrijden   

Cache   

Damon Motorcycles kondigt vandaag aan dat hun CoPilot geavanceerde waarschuwingssysteem wordt aangedreven door BlackBerry QNXtechnologie. Deze technologie wordt toegepast in de volledige reeks geavanceerde elektrische motoren. Als onderdeel van de overeenkomst heeft Damon Motorcycles een licentie verleend voor BlackBerry QNX-technologie, inclusief zijn real time besturingssysteem, om te dienen als de veilige basis voor het Damon CoPilot waarschuwingssysteem in hun nieuwste elektrische motor.

Damon Motorcycles onthult deze vernieuwende, limited edition Hypersport Pro superbike op 7 januari tijdens CES 2020 om 10.00 uur plaatselijke tijd. Op de stand van BlackBerry kunnen bezoekers Damon’s vooruitstrevende elektrische motor testen in de #FutureOfMotorcycling Interactive Experience: een berijdbare, stationaire motorfiets die virtual reality (VR) gebruikt om de unieke functies van de motorfiets te laten zien. Deze functies omvatten de krachtige, volledig elektrische prestaties, het geavanceerde CoPilotwaarschuwingssysteem en Shift, de gepatenteerde ergonomie voor bestuurders waarmee motorrijders de rijpositie van de Hypersport elektronisch kunnen aanpassen terwijl ze aan het rijden zijn. Het CoPilot-waarschuwingssysteem maakt gebruik van radars, camera's en niet-zichtbare sensoren om de snelheid, de richting en de vaart van bewegende objecten rond de motorfiets te volgen. Deelnemers kunnen een tijdstip boeken via damonmotorcycles.com/VR om deze nieuwe motor op CES 2020 te testen.

"We hebben als missie om forenzen wereldwijd kennis te laten maken met de potentie van persoonlijke mobiliteit", zei Jay Giraud, Chief Executive Officer van Damon Motorcycles. “Om dit te realiseren, hebben we de afgelopen drie jaar gewerkt aan de ontwikkeling van een kunstmatige intelligentie (AI) aangedreven, volledig verbonden e-motorfietsplatform met CoPilot, ons eigen 360º waarschuwingssysteem. Door het te bouwen op BlackBerry’s beveiligings-gecertificeerde technologie worden de elektrische motor van Damon de veiligste en meest geavanceerde op de markt."
 
"Met zijn geavanceerde botswaarschuwingssysteem is de nieuwe Hypersport Pro een compleet nieuw model voor de motorindustrie", aldus Grant Courville, Vice President, Product Management en Strategie, BlackBerry QNX. "We zijn verheugd om Damon Motorcycles op onze stand te hebben en kijken ernaar uit om de uiterst veilige software, die meer gemoedsrust en omgevingsbewustzijn voor motorrijders levert, te laten zien. BlackBerry QNX loopt voorop in de volgende generatie van mobiliteitssystemen door een beveiligd platform te bieden voor verbonden voertuigen. We zijn er trots op samen met Damon Motorcycles te werken aan deze spectaculaire ontwikkeling. "

Autobedrijf Ford Van Putten naar Van Mossel Automotive Groep    

Cache   

De familiebedrijven Van Mossel Automotive Groep en Autobedrijf Ford Van Putten hebben een overeenkomst bereikt over de verkoop van het autobedrijf aan Van Mossel. Alle medewerkers blijven werkzaam in de huidige vestigingen Terneuzen, Hulst, Goes en Vlissingen. De overname is beoogd te worden afgerond begin 2020.


 
Ford Van Putten begon in de jaren ‘30 in Breskens. Inmiddels heeft het familiebedrijf vestigingen in Terneuzen, Hulst, Goes en Vlissingen. “Mijn broer Peter en ik zijn de derde generatie”, vertelt Wim van Putten.“Sinds de beginjaren is er veel veranderd, maar ik ben van mening dat de koop ook in de toekomst nog steeds grotendeels in de showroom zal plaatsvinden. Schaalvergroting is echter niet meer uit te sluiten. Mijn broer Peter en ik hebben ervoor gekozen om op zoek te gaan naar een betrouwbare partij, een familiebedrijf, die net als wij persoonlijke aandacht en service voor de klant hoog in het vaandel heeft staan en deze schaalvergroting nu al biedt. Wij hebben het volste vertrouwen dat we in Van Mossel de juiste partij hebben gevonden om de toekomst veilig te stellen voor al onze medewerkers en klanten.”
 
Eric Berkhof voegt hieraan toe: “Van Mossel heeft gekozen voor een landelijke dekking in de autodichte gebieden van Nederland. Met de vier vestigingen van Autobedrijf Ford Van Putten zijn we nu nog beter vertegenwoordigd op strategische locaties in Zeeland. Wij zijn erg blij met deze overname en kijken ernaar uit om alle medewerkers te verwelkomen als nieuwe Van Mossel-collega. Wim blijft zelf nauw betrokken met een adviserende functie.”

Distribution of coronavirus relief funds under Ehsaas Programme to begin tomorrow   

Cache   
Prime Minister Imran Khan
Prime Minister Imran Khan on Wednesday announced that the distribution of relief funds under the Ehsaas Programme to families affected by the coronavirus lockdown will begin tomorrow (Thursday).

"Around 17,000 points have been identified for cash distribution," said the premier.

According to Dr Sania Nishtar, who is incharge of the programme, 1.2 million families will get Rs12,000.

"Funds distribution will be done on the basis of biometric verification," she said, explaining that this way no one will be able take advantage of funds allocated for someone else, such as if there had been a card system.

An SMS can be sent to 8171 containing the 13-digit National Identity Card number, said Dr Nishtar. This will let a family know if they are eligible for the payment.

Asad Umar took over the briefing for a while to discuss the matter of flights bringing back Pakistanis stranded abroad.

"Many Pakistanis abroad who had gone with a visa or those who have lost their jobs wish to come back," noted Umar.

He said a plan was initially made to bring people back over the course of a week.

"In the first week, flights only came to Islamabad. We had decided that after the first day, we will review.

"It was good we had decided that as there were a few troubles that arose after the first flight which we have now fine-tuned," said the minister.

Umar said that the matter came under discussion in the National Coordination Committee held earlier in the day.

"We agreed that the other airports have to be included in this," he said, referring to airports in other provinces.

"A system is being made so that they can be come and at the same time no danger is posed from their arrival."

He said by next week, operations will begin at airports in other provinces.

The prime minister said that when news of the coronavirus outbreak first surfaced, it was Pakistan's aim to procure enough medical equipment at the outset that the hospitals are not overwhelmed.

He expressed regret at the recent clashes of young doctors in Quetta with the police as they protested the non-availability of personal protective equipment. "That's why all of you must know what the federal government has been doing and what it plans to do in the days to come."

He then invited the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA) chief Lt Gen Muhammad Afzal to provide a clear picture.

Lt Gen Afzal said that in the initial days, demand for equipment had only come from three areas, including the capital territory. "Then we ourselves sent equipment to other areas, especially to doctors working in ICUs," he said.

He said for Punjab, it was found 6,000 people needed equipment but equipment for 18,000 was provided. Furthermore, 20,000 more items are ready and will be distributed to doctors by name across 56 hospitals in the days to come.

"There was also no written demand from Sindh. We calculated number of doctors and nurses and arrived at a figure of 9,000. We sent them equipment for 15,000." He said 42 hospitals are still on the agenda and will receive equipment soon.

Lt Gen Afzal said demand from Khyber Pakhtunkhwa had come for the first time yesterday and they have asked for 940,000 PPEs. "We had already sent them 10,900 PPEs," he said, adding that over the next three days, more wil be sent through the army and civil administration.

The NDMA chairman said, similarly, there was no written demand from Balochistan but with a calculated figure of 2,000, extra equipment of up to 8,000 items was provided to the province.

A demand of 15,000 items had come from Gilgit-Baltistan and we gave them 24,000 articles and 4,000 more will be given "under a fresh plan".

He said that three to four hospitals in Islamabad had demanded 18,000 items and so far 8,000 items had been provided. A plan is in place for another 6,000 to be distributed over the next three days.

Lt Gen Afzal said that from Azad Jammu Kashmir a demand of 10,000 items had come and 13,000 items had already been sent, whereas another 2,000 will be sent in the coming days.

He also said that despite an international shortage of ventilators, "with cooperation from provincial and federal governments, the benchmarks set will be met".

Speaking of the country's testing capacity, he said that on March 13, there were only 14 laboratories that could carry out about 2,000 to 2,250 tests a day.

"Today we have 22 laboratories. For 12 laboratories, equipment has been sent to provinces already."

NDMA has provided 17,000 N95 masks and kits to Punjab, 8,000 to Sindh, 97,000 to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, 6,200 to Balochistan, 2,750 to Gilgit-Baltistan, 1,000 to Islamabad and 2,800 to AJK, he said.

Lt Gen Afzal said that 100,000 testing kits were arriving tonight and by Friday 235,000 testing kits would be available in the country.

Of the total number of imported kits, 35,000 would be provided to Sindh, 25,000 each to Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and Punjab and 15,000 testing kits would be provided to Balochistan.

Normal and tubeless tires   

Cache   


The tubeless tire is different from the usual one - it has a sealing layer 1.5 ... 2.0 mm thick, which is vulcanized to its inner surface. It is made from a mixture of natural and synthetic rubbers with low gas permeability.

On the sides of the tire there is a sealing rubber layer that provides the necessary tightness in the landing zone of the beads on the shelves of the wheel rim. This is facilitated by the special design of the tire beads, designed to increase the angle of inclination of the toe of the bead and increased interference of the beads on the landing flanges of the rim.

Advantages of tubeless tires:


The main advantages of tubeless tires compared to tube tires are:

increased reliability due to the lack of the likelihood of rapid depressurization, which improves safety at high speeds;

smaller mass and moment of inertia;

50 - 70% reduction in vehicle downtime on the way, as small punctures can be repaired with a special paste without removing the tires from the wheel;

10–12% greater mileage, which is achieved by the best temperature conditions due to enhanced heat transfer from the tire to the rim and the stability of the internal air pressure in the tire, as well as the absence of friction between the tire and the chamber;


Attention:

At the same time, the use of tubeless tires requires accurate installation and dismantling. Damage to the side edges of steel, especially, can lead to depressurization of a tubeless tire. If the tire is damaged, it must be repaired by specialists in the equipment intended for this purpose.
In case of pressure loss, you cannot move on a flat tire. this will lead to the destruction of the hermetic layer.

What are tyres made of?


Natural rubber. Component mined from Brazilian Hevea juice. At the moment, it is most often used in the rubber composition of the sidewalls of models, I guarantee elasticity and resilience. Thus, maneuverability is significantly improved. The natural rubber has a white milky colour, so before they began to use synthetic rubber, the tires had a white colour.

Artificial rubber. The main element in a tire cocktail occupies a large proportion of the rubber composition and directly affects the running performance. Natural rubber was used throughout the lion's part of the 20th century until synthetic rubber (styrene-butadiene, isoprene, butyl rubber, etc.) was synthesized. The hardness of the rubber mixture depends on wear, adhesion and braking. That is the main technical properties. Depending on the purpose of the rubber, manufacturers indicate the necessary rigidity. For example, for high-speed models, the composition is used with more rigid rubber, and for classic rain models, it is softer (since such rubber adheres well to wet roads).

Carbon black (TU) or soot. The presented material occupies 1/3 of the composition and, as a rule, denotes such characteristics as wear-resistance and strength for the product. Also gives the product a distinctive colour scheme. Carbon black is synthesized by the destruction of natural gas, that is, in fact, this material is a waste from the extraction of natural gas. Tires produced in the USSR included a large share of soot, due to the readily available material. Unfortunately, this material is environmentally harmful, so every year manufacturers are trying to reduce its share in their products.

10 Things to Do After a Car Accident   

Cache   


More than six million car accidents happen in first world countries like the USA and the UK alone, whereas over 10 million lives are claimed by car accidents every year. They are so common and frequent that it is impossible for anyone to not go through one, once in a lifetime. Usually, most of the car accidents result in property damage only; especially the driver and the passenger have taken precautionary measures. However, every one in three of the accidents results in personal injuries, some of them fatal.

If you find yourself in a vehicle accident, there are a few things that can be done to protect yourself and your interests. Here is a list of ten things you can do after a car crash;

1 – Stop

Car accidents are inevitable, but there is a fair chance you can avoid them through proper awareness and traffic guidelines, especially when you have an accredited license. However, if you do find yourself in the unfortunate situation, do not drive away – even if it is minor. Driving away from the scene just because you had no injuries can be a dumb move. Make sure you don’t attempt running in confusion.

2 – Protect the Scene

In order to avoid further cases of minor or major accidents, flares must be installed at the location. The best thing you can do is keep your flashlights on while at an accident scene. Accidents can occur at any time of the day. Hence, always go prepared and keep one – if not many – flashlight in the glove compartment or under seats. This should help you in case you get into a car accident during the night time. A flashlight will keep you safe while you wait for help besides your disabled car or on the side of the road.

3 – Call the Police

Just because there is not much damage does not mean you should not call the police. Even if there is no serious damage, it is the best idea to hit up the Police for help. They might be of great help to you by filing a report to claim with your insurance company. Even if it is just to claim for your car, the police will help you out and make things smoother for you. But before calling the police, make sure all the vehicles involved in the crash remain at the same spot as long as they are not interfering with the traffic.

4 – Make Accurate Accord

Upon the police’s arrival, make sure you inform the officers about exactly what had happened. If you can’t remember certain things, let the officer be aware of that. For investigation officers might connect the dots with the information, you provide them with to fill in the blanks. Refrain from misstating or speculating any facts, for that would lead to misconceptions and eventually won’t be of any help to you. Most of the time, the collision’s after-effects show after a few hours of the accident – which involves severe pain, mental confusion, and memory loss – hence make sure all the statements coming from the injured person is accurate.

5 – Take Pictures

If you manage to escape a car crash unwounded or slightly wounded, make sure you take the pictures of the scene. The best option is to equip your phone with a camera, but if not then a smartphone should do. Make sure to capture all the visible damage on the camera. If there are any visible injuries, even if minor, take pictures of them as well. These things should help you with investigation and insurance. However, if there is an investigation going on, it is better not to interfere with that and wait until the crime scene is over. Though, ensure to photograph the scene as soon as possible.

6 – Exchange Information

Typically, information is collected by police officers. However, if the police fail to obtain the information or do not respond to the crash due to any reason, you should do the task yourself, at least as much as you can. Obtain the name and telephone numbers and address of all the people involved – including the drivers and drivers alike. Also, get the information regarding insurance by asking for the insurance card from all the cars present at the scene. If you collect enough information from the witnesses, it will be easier for your attorney or you to contact them in the future if needed.

7- Report the Accident

Enlighten your insurance company about h incident as soon as possible. Find out if the medical treatments are a part of your insurance coverage – also known as med pay. Ensuring this will help you avoid paying for any personal injuries. In case of availability of med-pay service, all your medical bills will be paid by your insurance company.

8 – Seek Medical Attention

Most of the time, injuries caused by car crashes do not appear right away but are made visible after a few hours of the crash. Often, victims of car accidents complain about pain or bruises after a day or two of the incident. Unless you are completely sure there are no injuries – even then – a visit to the doctor is compulsory. Go to the physician and get a complete body check-up. Even in car accidents of low impacts, some injuries can leave a small but severe and permanent effect. The most usual victim of the car injuries is the spinal cord, which if once damaged, can become impossible to treat. If you see someone near you in a car crash which has lost consciousness, take them to the nearest emergency room and have their checkup done. Untreated symptoms could lead to not only physical but behavioral trauma as well, such as PTSD.

9 – Maintain a File

Maintain a file for your entire incident related papers and documents. The information should contain claims, names, and numbers of people at the scene. Keep the claim’s adjuster and rental car receipts. Keep your medical bills – whether paid by yourself or medical insurance.

10 – Protect Your Rights

The best you can do right after a car accident is to contact your attorney. Your lawyer can help you protect your rights and help you in ensuring that all the evidence and information is collected effectively. A lawyer can advise you on all kinds of issues ranging from how to get the maximum benefit out of your insurance and other matters.

Conclusion

Car crashes can be prevented by taking precautions. However, they are inevitable and keeping these things in mind can go a long way in helping you out because car accidents can be quite traumatizing. Keeping these tips in mind will ensure to minimize the after-effects of the car crash and help you recover quickly and effectively, without any more potential damage – related to health or property.


          

Techniques that Will Make you a Better Driver   

Cache   


The first automobile was invented in 1885 by a certain Karl Benz. Little did he know, his clunky little carriage evolved into one of the most universal pieces of ingenuity ever invented. The car (which is, fun fact, a short form of the word carriage) took over the world. Roads, along with running water and electricity, have become a vital indicator of any nation’s very development.

One of the fondest memories of many people’s lives is learning how to drive. It could either be with your father sitting in the passenger seat. Soothing your jagged nerves with his calming voice. And, very subtly, a hand ready to reach for the emergency brake if need be. Or if he was too nervous himself and sent you off for driving lessons like the ones by EZlicense.

In any case, driving is one of the most important skills any person can have in their repertoire. This following article will give you some more tips and tricks to impress anyone on the road. Or, indeed, anyone that trusted you enough to let you drive them. From little tips that will let people know how smooth you are. To pieces of driving etiquette that might save your life. Here are five techniques that will make you a better driver.

Wear your seatbelt.

Your dad was absolutely right to tell you to get your seatbelt on. As rudimentary as it may seem. Or as boring as it may seem. Wearing a seatbelt may very well save your life.

Everyone on the road is a human being. And all human beings are very, very fallible. It simply does not matter how good of a driver you are. Miscalculations happen all the time if you are in a densely populated environment. Even if you are not on a busy road. There is no telling when a random kangaroo will hop onto the scene. And that is not something random added for comedic effect. If there has been a car collision in Australia, there is a very high chance that a ‘roo is involved.

Wear your seatbelts people.

Adjust your seat

Human beings come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. So do cars. However, it can be said that the variation is far more apparent in people than in cars. What I am trying to say is that everyone is different. And cars are less so.

A person spends a lot of their daily lives sitting in a car. Whether it be commuting from work or school. A long trip to meet your grandparents across the country. Or if you drive an Uber for a living.

Adjust your seat for maximum lumbar support. Tilt the seat so your spine is neutral. Neck upwards and forwards. Get a neck pillow, the type you get at airports if you will be on a particularly long drive. What this does is prevent the development of any imbalances in your back or neck. Allowing you to drive that long drive without issue.

Remember-comfort is key.

Think ahead

Plan out your journey. Especially if it is a long drive. Here are some things you need to keep in mind when doing so-

  • How long will the journey be?

  • What will the weather be like?

  • How many petrol stations are on the way?

  • How many rest stations are there?

Knowing a few of these things beforehand will spare you from a lot of unnecessary hassle. It is always better to plan for any amount of discomfort. As opposed to actually facing it on the road.

Ensure that your car is road fit

There are a few things that you have to think about before turning the key.

One of the most important being-check your car battery. It will not do to be stuck in the middle of nowhere because your car will not start. Use some hot water on the terminals of your battery if it is a bit old. This will prevent you from panicking that you will miss a meeting or be late for school.

Check your petrol. Or gas. Whichever your car uses to propel itself, and you, forwards. This might seem like a simple thing. But it is important. Thousands of people get in their cars every day and curse themselves when the car does not move. Every time you get home, make a note of where the old needle is.

Before getting in the car, inspect the tires. If they seem deflated, they probably are. It is always better to ensure that your tire pressure is between 30-35 psi. The more deflated the tire, the more friction between the rubber and the road. The more pennies out your pocket for petrol.

Save up. Get your tires properly inflated.

Check the Mirrors

Before starting any journey, check your side mirrors. They are the handiest tools a driver can have. Barring the actual steering wheel itself. Adjust the mirrors according to your height and your posture whilst you drive. This will make it easier for you when you drive.

You must also familiarize yourself with your blindspot. The parts that you can not see even with the help of a side mirror. Whenever you are taking a turn, slow down and ensure that no car is barrelling towards you in your blindspot. Knowing your car is of paramount importance.

Use the turning signal

We all know that one idiot on the road. Threatening the lives of everyone around him or her by blindly weaving and changing lanes. Worst of all, and most dangerous of all, when those behind the said idiot do not know when he will take a turn.

Do not be that idiot. Please. For the sake of everyone involved. A good driver’s first priority is road etiquette. And one of the biggest parts of road etiquette is the turning signal. Indicate where you are gonna turn. Always.

In the immortal words of Shia LaBeouf- “Just do it!”.

Install a dashcam

There is no telling who you will come across on the road. From fender benders to all-out collisions, accidents happen all the time. They are inevitable, unfortunately, like the waves on a beach. Dashcams will allow you to document, for insurance purposes, in the case of an accident.

Erring on the side of caution is better than regretting not doing so.

In conclusion, a safe driver is a good driver. Remember to always plan ahead. Treat your car good and it will treat you good. Use your rearview and side mirrors. Get a dashcam just to be safe. And for the love of God-please use the turn signal.


          

How to change engine oil and filter in your car   

Cache   

One of the most important procedures that you must regularly perform to keep your car in top shape is to replace the engine oil and filter. The oil in the car works the same way as the blood in our body: due to its circulation in the engine, the whole system works smoothly and efficiently. Frequent oil and filter changes are a guarantee of the long life of your car and its uninterrupted operation.

When it comes time to change the engine oil (the recommended interval between replacements is indicated in the operating instructions for your car), you have two options: either you go to the service station, to the dealership or replacement point, or do it yourself. Mechanics and other specialists in car maintenance and repair, of course, will brilliantly cope with their duties, but it is also quite simple and inexpensive to carry out the replacement. With the help of this instruction, you can correctly change the oil in the engine of your car - one of the most valuable and expensive things that you have.

Car Maintenance Equipment

Changing the oil in your car will need certain things. Here is what you need:

  • Adequate engine oil of sufficient viscosity. Use our engine oil selection tool to find out which oil you need. Be sure to check the operating instructions for your vehicle for specifications recommended by the manufacturer, viscosity class and the required oil volume. If you still use mineral products, consider switching to synthetic engine oil, for example, Mobil 1 ™, so that you can increase the efficiency of your engine.

  • High-quality oil filter. Socket wrench

  • Key for oil filters

  • Funnel

  • Containers for old oil, such as a pan or bucket

  • Newspapers

  • Rags


Drain old engine oil

Before draining the oil, start the car and leave the engine turned on for 1-2 minutes or circle your quarter to warm the oil: it will be easier to drain it. It is necessary to carry out the replacement in a suitable place for this - a garage or driveway is suitable. It is very important that the car stands on a flat surface.

Climb under the car and find the oil pan and drain plug.

If there is too little space under the car, you may need to install a jack. Remember: never go under a machine that is held only on a jack, be sure to use a lifting support.

Having found the drain plug, spread a newspaper under it and lower the tray onto it. Loosen the plug with the socket wrench by turning it counter clockwise.

Then, carefully remove the plug and let the oil flow out. Caution! Engine oil may be hot. When the oil spills out (the spray turns into separate drops), insert the plug into place manually and then tighten a quarter of a turn with a wrench.


Replace oil filter

Leave the pan under the machine and locate the oil filter.

Loosen the filter with the key by turning it counterclockwise. Take out the filter manually.

Before installing a new one, apply a little engine oil to the new gasket (refer to the operating instructions of your car): it will not stick and crack, in addition, it is good protection against oil leaks.

Finally, install and secure the new filter manually.


Add engine oil

It is time to add new oil to the engine. Use our engine oil selection tool to find out which product is right for you. Remember to follow the manufacturer's recommendations regarding specifications, viscosity and volume requirements.

Remove the oil filler cap and fill the tank with oil. Use a funnel to avoid splashing. When done, close the lid and wipe off the oil spray. Start the engine and let it run for about a minute to allow oil to circulate.

You are almost done. But it’s too early to leave - you need to check the oil level. To do this, turn off the engine, remove and wipe the dipstick.

Immerse it and pull it out to make sure that the oil level is normal. Close the lid - now you can praise yourself.


Clean up and dispose of used oil.

You coped with the task, now you need to clean up after yourself. Pour the oil from the sump into an old container - or another suitable container and put the old filter in a plastic bag.

The best way to get rid of old engine oil is to dispose of it. Some service stations and replacement points accept old oil and oil filters for free.

Finally, throw out dirty newspapers and rags. Now you and your car can hit the road.

Record the oil change date and mileage to know when to proceed the next time. Remember to change the oil regularly.

Scrap Cars Removal do not need their oil changed as they won’t be driven anywhere anytime soon. If you have scrap cars, you might consider selling them for cash at car removal services.


          

Changing Gears - How to Rev Up Your Car Maintenance   

Cache   


Car maintenance is one of those things that only gets looked at when there is a problem. Sure, when there is smoke there is fire. But just because your car runs as it should, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be putting car maintenance into practise regardless. It may not be soon, but one day you will resell your car and these little habits will help you get the price you want from a car you worked hard to acquire. If you know more about your air freshener tree than you do your own car, don’t fear. Here is the rundown of car maintenance practises that will rev up your car care plan.

Mechanic maintenance

When was your last check-up? Those stickers that mechanics place in our windows reminding us to visit before a certain date or kilometre count - they are not put there for fun. If you think that a car service is inconvenient, how much more inconvenient would it be if you car broke down and was out of action for an extended period of time? Visiting your SSC mechanics in Airport West will give you peace of mind and a much needed prognosis of how your car is travelling. Remember that recommendations don’t need to be actioned right then and there, you can start with the things that need to be done now and ask your mechanic how long you can go until actioning the other items. We can tell you now that the first thing a buyer will ask for when considering the purchase of your car is the logbook - make it reflect consistent car care.

Exterior care

Washing your car every weekend might not be viable for all car owners, and with more Australians opting for apartment living, it’s clear to see why. The general rule on how often you should wash your car is every two weeks. If this doesn’t sound quite like you and your car, commit to a car wash every month and then work it up to every two weeks. There are lots of things that can strip the paint on your car, such as plant matter and animal droppings. Both are inevitable. Washing your car regularly reduces the chance of these things setting into the surface of your car and causing long term damage. This will not work with your agenda of selling your car at the price you want.

Interior care

Vacuuming the car is eternally on the list of things to do. And yet? We push car interior care it to next week, and then the next. Before you know it, you grow accustomed to the grass, dirt and miscellaneous mess that lines the base of your car. Take a stand and set a rule to vacuum and wipe down your car every two weeks when you’re already washing the exterior. The more often you clean the interior, the easier it is to remove the mess. The longer you leave it, it starts to discolour and become a part of your car carpet and chairs. Another thing to remember is that you are likely desensitised to the sell of the inside of your car. The bad news? Your friends and family are not. Don’t put your peers off carpooling with you and address the state of your car interior as soon as possible.

Car care isn’t just about resellability, it’s also about respecting and caring for your investment. We spend too much time inside cars as it is, so you may as well enjoy the ride and be proud of your car and its overall running and appearance. Don’t be left wishing that you had seen a mechanic sooner, and book in your car so you can drive with peace of mind.


          

WhatsApp beperkt het doorsturen van berichten in strijd tegen fake news

Vanaf vandaag kan je ‘vaak gedeelde’ berichten op WhatsApp nog maar naar één persoon per keer doorsturen. Die aanpassing was volgens de berichtendienst nodig om de verspreiding van nepnieuws tegen te gaan. Het blijft mogelijk om zulke berichten naar meerdere personen door te sturen, maar dat gaat wel wat meer werk kosten.

Q&A: Aston Martin boss wants brand to be the 'British Ferrari'   

Cache   
Aston Martin V12 Speedster - static front
Stroll (left) and design boss Marek Reichman unveil V12 Speedster
Aston will adopt Ferrari's business model, says CEO Andy Palmer, making fewer but more profitable models

Aston Martin put new investor and executive chairman Lawrence Stroll front and centre of last month's reveal of the V12 Speedster. We sit down with CEO Andy Palmer to see how Stroll’s expertise (and money) will help revive Aston’s fortunes.

Lawrence Stroll talks about reducing inventories and rebalancing the company. What will the practical effects be?

“Lawrence has been the Canadian Ferrari importer a long time so he understands the Ferrari model very well. We expect in future to make materially fewer sports cars, but to make every one of them solidly profitable. We built 5800 sports cars for wholesale last year. We’ll do fewer in 2020.”

Can you be more specific about numbers?

“Not possible, I’m afraid. There will be a delay while we get stock out of the system. We’ll have to swallow hard. And change what we do. It’s time for us to make good and try to become the British Ferrari, asking customers to spec their cars individually and wait for them to be built. The DBX is already showing how we mean to go on. We’re building those cars only for retail and our order book for 2020 is full.”

What will your relationship with Red Bull be like in future?

“Red Bull’s contribution has been invaluable. Those guys have been great friends to our brand and we’ll continue as their title sponsor in F1 this year. Red Bull Technologies takes responsibility for the Valkyrie and that will continue after we launch it at the back end of the year. Beyond that, we will have a new relationship with the [F1] team currently known as Racing Point. It’s up to us to make proper use of that relationship.”

Your electrification plans for the Rapide E and Lagonda have been shelved. Is that a poor signal to send to the market?

“Our plans have gone back, but they’re far from dead. We’ve finished the Rapide E engineering, learned a ton of stuff from it and its IP remains with us. But we’ve taken the opportunity to write down the capital expenditure of the electrification work. We’ve had some difficult years. We have to decide what our new priorities are.”

What are your priorities?

“We have to get to the midengined model bloodline – Valkyrie this year, Valhalla in 2022 and Vanquish in 2023 – and we have to bring our 3.0-litre V6 hybrid and plug-in powertrains into the whole model range as soon as possible, as a way of staying on the right side of clean air regulations. These powertrains need to be right across our range by the mid-2020s. But we’re not walking away from the Lagonda project. I’d hope that would regain its place in our priority list post-2024.”

The Vantage has had a slow start. Why is this and what can you do about it?

“Actually, we’ve grown our market share with this model. But though our slice got bigger, the cake got smaller. Also, we were missing the Roadster, which will account for about 40% of potential volume. There was a demand for a manual gearbox, which we’re now meeting, and some buyers prefer a more traditional grille, which we’re now providing. And we’re now offering the leasing deals many people want.”

What are your immediate priorities this year?

“We have to balance demand and supply to remove extra stock out of the system and get back to building cars to order. Then we have to ensure that DBX’s quality is perfect from the very first deliveries.”

How do these changes affect your own position as president and CEO?

“That’s a difficult question because you never really know. I’ve got plenty to prove. But Lawrence Stroll is more than interested in cars and he isn’t a passive guy – which I like. He’s made it clear that the CEO’s role won’t change. I’d like to be here to see the DBX and the mid-engined models through their launches, and the Lagonda too.”

So you’re fundamentally optimistic about the future?

“We had four good years from the back end of 2014, when I arrived, but 2019 was very difficult and we now have plenty to prove. We need a bit of luck with the market, but we’re cutting our cloth to suit the new priorities and conditions. If I wasn’t optimistic, I wouldn’t be the right guy for this job.”
