What Every Woman Should Know About Her Car

Driving skills vary from person to person regardless of gender, but what’s important is knowing some crucial things about a car in case of an emergency.

S

tereotypes about women and cars are slowly becoming a thing of the past. The chauvinist who constantly rants about women drivers on the road might find himself being tooted to move aside by a rather adept female motorist. Driving skills vary from person to person regardless of gender, but what’s important is knowing some crucial things about a car in case of an emergency. This doesn’t mean that one has to know the purpose of every nut and bolt that holds a car together, but it would be advantageous to know exactly how to help yourself in a potentially dangerous situation. Changing a Flat Tyre A flat tyre is one of the top reasons for automobile emergencies, but there is really no reason to let a flat turn you into a damsel in distress. Roll those sleeves up and prepare to realize that changing a tyre isn’t as hard as one might think. You won’t be doing much without the right equipment, so check your trunk to ensure that you have everything. A spare, jack, a tyre iron and a lug key are all essentials in this process. So if that flat tyre occurs, find somewhere safe to pull over and put on your hazard lights. Loosen the lug nuts on the flat tyre. Place the jack according to the directions (it’s different for every car), jack the car up, and then remove the loose lug nuts. Take off the flat. Put the spare on, and put the lug nuts on. Don’t tighten them completely yet! Lower the car and then tighten the lug nuts. There you go Superwoman. Know how to jump start your car Leaving your car lights on or a faulty alternator can result in a nasty surprise when you turn your ignition. As long as you have the requisite jumper cables and another car handy, you’re

good to go. The most important part of this process is identifying the battery terminals as positive and negative, and pairing them with the correct ends of each jumper cable. Remember that both cars should have been off at the beginning of the process. Start the car with the good battery, wait 30 seconds and then start the car with the bad battery. If it doesn’t turn over, wait a couple minutes then try again. After your car has started, feel free to profusely thank the Good Samaritan for the use of their battery and make your way home. Know how to check the oil and radiator fluid Having a smoothly running engine is sometimes as simple as making sure it has enough oil and radiator fluid. Radiator fluid or engine coolant, cools the engine down so that it doesn’t overheat, allowing it to keep working even on the hottest days. Find where the dip sticks are for both engine oil and engine coolant. In many cars they are yellow in colour and marked with a picture of either a drop of oil or some sort of liquid. Using your owner’s manual, determine the proper levels for both fluids. To get the most accurate reading, have your engine running when using the dip sticks. It is advised to check your fluids at least once per month. Though this might not help you to be an expert grease monkey it will help to demystify a couple of the intimidating aspects of car ownership. So be prepared, arm yourselves with knowledge.

Getting the Right look For The Summer

New Summer Classic Step 1: Apply the foundation of your choice and lightly powder to set it in place. This is important in the hot summer months. Apply a base for your eyeshadow, like a cream shadow or an eyeshadow primer to extend the length of wear of your eyeshadow. Step 2: With a fluffy eyeshadow brush, apply a matte shadow that is two shades lighter than your skin tone to the area between your upper lash line and your eyebrow. Then add a metallic colour that corresponds with your skin tone to the eyelid area. If you have very dark skin, a deep bronze, copper or even a deep red gold shadow would be beautiful. For medium to lighter skin, pale or yellow gold or copper shadows would work. Step 3: Line the upper lash line using a crème eyeliner, like Maybelline New York’s EYESTUDIO crème liner with an angled brush. Start from the middle of the upper lash line. When you get to the end of your lash line, with a steady hand swoop your brush up and out to the side to create a wing with the liner. This is how you get the much sought after cat eye. You can then leave it at this or line the rims of the lower lash line with a black waterproof or long-wearing eyeliner pencil for a sharper effect. Apply black mascara. Step 4: Lightly sweep a dark pink blush from the apples of your cheeks back towards your ears with a blusher brush or a clean face powder brush. Step 5: Add a few sweeps of bronzer over your cheeks, chin, down the bridge of your nose and the center of your forehead: the areas where the sun would naturally hit your face the most. Doing this will give you a healthy, youthful sun-kissed glow. Step 6: Bright, matte lips are in this summer, so choose the brightest matte lip colour that you are comfortable with and apply it to your lips.

Step 1: Apply the foundation of your choice and lightly powder to set it in place. This is important in the hot summer months. Step 2: Apply a navy blue cream eyeshadow to the eyelid from the upper lash line to the crease of the lid only. Using a small flat brush, pat a bright blue colour on the area covered with the cream shadow and on the lower lash line. Then, with a small fluffy brush apply a little bit of a deep violet colour to the outer corner of the eyelids to add depth to the look. Step 3: With a clean flat brush, apply bright yellow shadow to the area of the lid that is not covered by the blue. Only do this no more than half way up between the crease of the eyelid and the brow bone. Make sure that the blue and yellow do not mix. Apply a small amount of gold on top of the yellow. Step 4: Line the rims of the lower lash line or the “waterline” with a black waterproof or long-wearing eyeliner pencil for a sharper effect. Apply black mascara. Step 5: Lightly sweep a peach blush from the apples of your cheeks back towards your ears with a blusher brush or a clean face powder brush. Step 6: Add a few sweeps of bronzer over your cheeks, chin, down the bridge of your nose and the center of your forehead: the areas where the sun would naturally hit your face the most. Doing this will give you a healthy, youthful sunkissed glow. Step 7: With this look a pale, matte mouth is the way to go. Look for shades of peach to nude, neutral colours. I improvised and used foundation in the model’s skin tone and a lightly shimmery peach lip gloss.

Getting in the Zone:

A World of Focus and Motivation

O

ften we know what should be done, but doing it can prove to be difficult at times. Sometimes it requires listening to music that gets us the ‘vibe’ we’ve been searching for, blocking out screaming athletes, listening to the final words of the coach before competition or remembering that combination of words that has always motivated us. Sometimes it requires going into that place where mind and body seem to work perfectly- in the zone. It is a place where you are so focused that nothing disturbs your inner world. There are so many distractions that we all have to contend with in trying to achieve our goals. We live in a world where there is always something to keep us busy so we are unable to fulfill our own dreams and aspirations. Sometimes when athletes compete, there are so many hurdles that can literally prevent them from putting all their training into practice on the day when it matters-competition! Some athletes focus on so many other things except passing the ball to other team mates or performing at their best. Some of these distractions can range from gears that might not fit properly, high expectations from the fans, venue, weather, poor sports management and the opponent! Amidst all the anxiety and distractions, there is still the pressure to perform at one’s best. The athletes who are able to do so, are those who are able to get in the zone, stay in the zone and ultimately perform in that state. Being in the zone for athletes means being at “that magical place where mind and body work in perfect sync and movements seem to flow without conscious effort. The achievement zone is when everything becomes clear and focused, nothing bothers you, you know instinctively what to do. You know whatever happens, your reaction will be the right one. Nothing rattles you,” says Dr. Anne Marie Murphy.

Let us commit ourselves to finding that place, even once a week, where we get in the zone to achieve our personal goals. Do the things that will get you focused! Whether it is listening to that music, calling up a friend, visualizing how the accomplished goal would make you feel, or simply taking some quiet time alone to think about how you plan to achieve your goal. Let us commit to blocking out unnecessary hurdles and distractions that will prevent us from achieving that which we truly want. Sometimes these hurdles come in the form of people, things or situations. Getting in the zone is where it all starts and to stay there is constant work! “The body achieves what the mind believes.” Olivia Rose Applied Sports Psychologist oliviakrose@yahoo.com advertisment

Athletes are not the only set of individuals who experience anxiety and stress while attempting to achieve their goals. Like athletes, many of us experience a myriad of distractions in trying to realize our dreams. There is always something that not only distracts us but keeps us constantly occupied. This might prevent us from even thinking about ways to make our dreams a reality. So we say we want to start our own business, go back to school, start that book, start eating healthily, finish that paper, learn a new skill or whatever it is that will give us a sense of accomplishment after it is realized, but to do it, seems like an insurmountable task. There is always something else to do, someone else to attend to, somewhere else to be. We are always so very busy; busy with other things and other people’s goals, that we rarely find the time to get in the zone for our own wishes, dreams and desires.
