Signs You May Need Transmission Repair

By Andrew Stratton

In this day and age, a trustworthy car is incredibly important. With the hours we spend on the road going back and forth between work, home, and other errands, we get to know the feel and sound of our cars and when something doesn't sound right, we rush our mechanical companion to the shop right away! The transmission is one of the most important parts of each car, and there are several signs that can indicate that repair is needed.

Leaking fluid is one of the more serious, though early, signs that transmission repair is needed. It may be remedied by replacing external seals, or it may require more complicated work. Either way, the car should be in the shop as soon as possible. If the fluid continues to leak, the transmission will fail completely and require a costly replacement.

The low fluid level may cause your car to maintain a neutral position for a short period of time when you try to accelerate from a complete stop or you're making a turn. Unfortunately, once the transmission fluid becomes low, it indicates that a leak has formed. It's imperative to have your car examined as soon as possible.

At times the fluid may begin leaking over the exhaust, causing a burning smell. In addition to the danger of ruining your car, this situation can also cause the potential of a fire. The fluid leaking onto the exhaust is incredibly hot!

A second indication of trouble is the shaking or bucking the car begins to exhibit when driven at highway speeds. Another problem that may come up is transmission slipping. This happens when the engine is revving, but no power is making its way to the wheels. An expert can evaluate the work that needs to be done.

If you notice your car becomes sluggish when shifting between gears, it's time to see a mechanic as soon as possible. While the car may simply need to be adjusted, it's better to confirm that you do not require major transmission repair.

Sometimes your car will simply refuse to shift into certain gears. And some computer-controlled cars will automatically revert to a "failsafe" or "limp home" mode in order to protect the transmission from further damage. The car can then be brought to the shop safely to be repaired.

Nowadays cars are built with computer-controlled parts. A lighted check engine light may be an indication that something is wrong with the transmission. Repair specialists can read your car's computer printout and determine what part of the engine is causing the light to illuminate.

With so many different indications, you may be confused when it comes to trying to self-diagnose your car's problems. This is why it's so important to have an expert examine your car when you feel that something isn't right. It's always better to be safely driving to your destination after having a necessary, though costly transmission repair, rather than stranded on the side of the road with an even more serious replacement needed!

Who Will Win The 2014 Super Bowl?

By Jay P. Granat, Ph.D.

The big game is a few days away and there is plenty of hype, hoopla and excitement about this year's match up between the Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks.

Sports pundits and sports fans are talking a lot about the Seattle defense and Payton Manning's record breaking season. They are also considering how cold weather might impact the game.The odds makers have made the Broncos at two and a half point favorite at the time that this column is being written.

My pal, colleague, quant expert and coauthor of one of my books, Who Will Win The Big Game: The 50 Characteristics Of Championship Teams, Coaches And Athletes, tells me that a lot of the data favor the Seattle Seahawks.

And the Seahawks fine coach, the powerful running game and dynamic quarterback make them a very fine football squad.

And while I placed a wager on the Seahawks to win it all when I was in Las Vegas, ten months ago, I think "Payton Manning will hit pay dirt in this year's Super Bowl."
Here's why...

I have been watching football for more time and for more years than my wife wants to think about and I have never seen a quarterback throw the ball so consistently and so efficiently as Payton Manning is throwing it now.

The offensive line seems to give Payton all the time he needs to deliver a short pass, medium length pass or long pass. He is making every throw.

Manning and the Broncos are also coming off a very fine performance against the Patriots. This dominating performance should give the Broncos some positive momentum coming into this week's big game.

In addition, he does some very unique things when he is running the offense. His ability to read defenses, change plays and get rid of the ball very quickly sets him apart from most of the quarterbacks in the league.
Payton Manning can create a great deal of illusion, which, in my view, can unsettle even Pete Carroll's super defense.

Also, I believe that Manning has additional motivation because winning another Super Bowl will cause people to view him as one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.

So, the team from the Mile High City, which now may have many mile high fans as a result of the legalization of marijuana, will probably have a lot to celebrate on Sunday night.

Charges pending against Justin Bieber for Assault on Limo Driver

Justin Bieber is in Toronto today after agreeing to surrender at a police station to face a charge over the alleged assault of limousine driver back in December.
As IQ previously reported, Toronto police were called to the area of Dundas Street West and University Avenue on Sunday, December 29, 2013, where the limousine driver for Bieber’s entourage had pulled over.
That evening, the 19-year-old superstar attended a Toronto Maple Leafs game at the Air Canada Centre with his father Jeremy Bieber, childhood pal Ryan Butler, and other friends.
At the time, Constable Victor Kwong with the Toronto Police Service told Canadian and international press that they were investigating an assault allegation and that Bieber was in the limousine, but couldn’t confirm whether the star or a member of his crew was involved in the alleged crime.
TMZ reports, the investigation then changed direction and focus fell on the “Baby” singer. The website claims police allegedly told the young star they wanted to talk to him about the matter but he failed to come in for an interview.
Citing law enforcement sources, CBC News and TMZ report Bieber is in Toronto and will shortly arrive at the 52 Division police station [reportedly around 7pm] to be booked for alleged assault, given a notice to appear at a later date and then released.

Car Loans Can Be Tricky

By Andrew Stratton

Everyone loves the idea of being able to purchase a new or used vehicle. For most people this involves obtaining some type of financing. Not everyone will have an easy time obtaining financing. There are many different factors that can affect people from being able to get approved for car loans.

People have different circumstances that can affect their financial situation. There are a variety of car loans that are available to consumers but it is up to the individual to do some research and find the financing option that is best for their situation. If someone has great credit they will most likely be able to obtain financing without too much trouble. A person with no credit history or a bad credit history will most likely encounter some difficulties obtaining financing and may need a larger down payment, some type of secured financing or even a co-signer.

When first looking into the different car loans that are available people should call and speak with several different finance companies to find the lender whose options will work best for them. They should consider all the terms of the financing offer, not just the interest rate and the length of the financing. It is best for people to contact the finance company directly instead of going through the auto dealership. Most dealerships will look for the finance company that gives them the best deal and that may not be the best deal for the customer.

When applying for car loans you will have to include all of your verifiable income. Dealerships may require you to provide past tax returns to support your income claims. The company will also need to verify your address so you may have to show proof of a utility bill or some type of business correspondence. The finance company will also want to verify your employer and possibly a personal reference that you provide. For people who are self-employed showing proof of at least two years' worth of tax returns may be necessary. If you require a co-signer they will also have to show proof of income. After all if you default on the financing agreement they will be responsible for the payments.

When considering various car loans people need to think about what will work out best for their personal situation. Just because a finance company makes an offer doesn't mean that you have to accept it. There are many things to consider when making this type of decision. First there is the interest rate. If the rate is high you will have a much higher monthly payment. Second is the length of the financing. Some offers may take up to six years for a person to pay off. The size of the down payment is a big point for most people to consider and perhaps even more importantly the amount of the monthly payment. While the idea of a new vehicle is appealing paying a large monthly payment may not be quite so appealing for some people. The bottom line is take the offer that works best for you.

Are the Seattle Seahawks America's Villains Heading to Super Bowl XLVIII?

To me, something strange happened last night as the Seattle Seahawks booked their ticket to Super Bowl XLVIII with an NFC Championship victory over the San Francisco 49ers; the Seahawks became the villains! They will head to the big game in New York City with the vast majority of casual fans rooting against them. Here are some things that swayed me in this thinking:

The NaVorro Bowman situation: The All-Pro 49ers linebacker made an incredible play in the fourth quarter of the game, stripping Jermaine Kearse at the sideline and holding on to the ball, all while sustaining a potentially career-ending injury to his knee. He fell on the play with the ball and should have been ruled down. However, the officials made a grave mistake and didn't rule him down, thus the injured player was swarmed by a scrum for the ball. Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch ended up with it, but can we really applaud him for ripping the ball out of someone's hands while they are in agony? If anything, that's just dirty play. Adding insult to injury is that the obvious call was for some reason unreviewable (how is it that there is always a terribly controversial play that's unreviewable? Why don't we just make everything reviewable?). Further cementing disgust with this team from Seattle was that Bowman had popcorn thrown onto him while he was carted off the field... real classy, Seattle...

Speaking of classy, let's talk about Richard Sherman, the self-proclaimed best cornerback in the NFL! While there is no doubt that he made a tremendous play to win the game, his actions afterwards displayed the complete opposite of sportsmanship. He hardly celebrated with his teammates before running over to pat 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree on the bum, then he went and gave a choke sign to Colin Kaepernick, and then he gave us a post-game interview for the ages, talking himself up and telling Crabtree to shut up. Richard Sherman is an absolute clown and is now the most hated player in football!

But even before yesterday's events, the Seahawks have been much maligned. With 5 suspensions for performing enhancing drugs since 2010, they have been the most affected team. They also have the most defensive back penalties this season, and have been exposed as cheaters, who hold onto receivers at an alarmingly high rate, knowing that many penalties go unnoticed. Their head coach, Pete Carroll, arrived from USC where the school's football program fell into disarray due to NCAA violations that he instituted (he ditched the school right before the mess became public). The Seattle Seahawks have also benefited from several high profile refereeing errors. In addition to the Bowman incident, there was the heinous "Fail Mary" episode last year in which the Seahawks were erroneously granted a last second touchdown to beat the Green Bay Packers (I still growl whenever I hear talk about Russell Wilson and his incredible home record!). And the way the team acted upon winning the game... it was like they had already won the Super Bowl. Sorry boys, but the toughest test is up ahead...

If there is one hope for football fans, it's that the "sheriff" is coming to town. Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Peyton Manning is here to save the day. If there's any team that can put these annoying sea pigeons to bed it's Manning and the Denver Broncos. Go watch Manning's post-game remarks after the AFC Championship game. He speaks about how great his "team" is. He is entirely thankful and humbled by the opportunity he has. He doesn't talk about how he's the greatest quarterback to ever play the game (though he actually is), he doesn't call out opponents and throw insults. In fact he called Tom Brady, his defeated competitor, "great." He has been the league's most beloved and respectable character throughout his great career. And so America at large will clearly be supporting the Broncos in the Super Bowl. Here's to hoping that Manning abuses Sherman all day and throws for 400 yards and 6 scores, leading the Broncos to a thrashing over the Seahawks! May Richard Sherman get burned on several obvious pass interference calls and go crying into the locker room without shaking anyone's hand following the beating.

March Madness Vs the Super Bowl - Betting Revenue

by Seth Miller

The two mayor sport betting events for gamblers and advertising companies are the Super Bowl and March Madness.

However - from a gamblers point of view - which can end up being more lucrative if a set budget is in place for both events?

In other words, if you were to place $10,000 on the Super Bowl, or $10,000 throughout the various matches of March Madness, which can offer you a better reward while reducing risk?
First of all, your approach regarding the various matches of college basketball will affect your pocket and the amount of risk in one way or another. Also, there is only one match during the Super Bowl, while March Madness offers over 63 opportunities to win or lose.

Assuming you place the $10,000 on whom will be this year's Super Bowl winner - under the current lines offered by Bovada (+120 for Seahawks and -140 for Broncos) - and win, you could end up with either $22,000 or $17,143 in total ($12,000 or $7,143 in profits).
Assuming the Broncos will win, let's move on and work under the assumption that you can earn $7,143 in profits from that one event.

Intermission Note: If you want to bet online to avoid local bookies or having to go to Nevada, try out Jazz Sports; a great sports-betting venue.

Now, March Madness has over 63 games to choose from, however, college basketball is prone to some really weird unexpected results. Most sports betting events include a certain degree of uncertainty and risk, but college basketball takes it to another level.

Depending on your approach, you can minimize risk while winning a smaller amount of cash, win a ridiculous amounts of money (or lose it) by taking a high risk approach, or go for a moderate amount of risk and expect a moderate amount of profits.

If you decide to go for a high risk approach, just go ahead and bet all on each game you think you can predict, and the profits will easily surpass those of the Super Bowl (as long as you don't lose). You could also go for a parlay or some other high risk type of bet for more profits. The unfortunate part of this strategy is that you will probably lose all your money (over 95% of the time).

On the other hand, a low risk approach would mean you bet a moderate amount on each game, avoid high risk bets like parlays, and only bet on those games you are pretty sure you can predict the outcome. The good part about this approach is that you can make some profits, and if you happen to lose, it won't be much anyway. The bad part is that you will not make much even if you win all your bets; that's because you would be betting rather small amounts and only placing bets on games with a low risk factor (which aren't many).

On the other hand, a low risk approach would mean you bet a moderate amount on each game, avoid high risk bets like parlays, and only bet on those games you are pretty sure you can predict the outcome. The good part about this approach is that you can make some profits, and if you happen to lose, it won't be much anyway. The bad part is that you will not make much even if you win all your bets; that's because you would be betting rather small amounts and only placing bets on games with a low risk factor (which aren't many).

Finally, you got the moderate approach. This approach consists on separating your money through different bets (some high-risk and some low-risk) in order to reduce risk as much as possible while looking to make a nice profit if you successfully predict one of the high-risk bets. The strategy would consist of placing a conservative amount (maybe $300-$600) on a three or four games parlay (two or three parlays total), and then place moderate sums ($400) on bets of those games you can predict with a certain degree of accuracy most of the time - I say most of the time since you should also place some smaller bets on some matches which you aren't extremely certain of the results but have a decent chance of winning.

This last approach would probably allow you to earn a bit more than the Super Bowl if you win two out of the three parlays and most of your "safe bets". However, if you lose all parlays but manage to win a reasonable amount of your "safe bets" you should come out almost even (maybe $1,500 in loss or profits).

Overall, taking the risk during the Super Bowl can be more rewarding than taking a conservative or moderate approach during the March Madness games, but it conveys a much higher risk.

In the sake of promoting prudent gambling, I suggest betting a decent, but not excessive amount on the Super Bowl, and then go for a moderate approach during the college basketball games.

5 Tricks for Better Grand Canyon National Park Bus Excursions

By: Susan Bissonnette

This is the year to finally visit the Grand Canyon and take an exciting bus tour. Bus tours depart from Las Vegas and are quite affordable. Here are five things to know about Grand Canyon coach trips.

Early Morning Departures

The buses leave Las Vegas every morning at 7 am. That is the only departure time. You'll have to book your tour for a day you can get going early. The buses leave Vegas at 7am, but the shuttle may pick you up at your hotel as much as an hour and a half before that.

Also, you have to decide which rim you want to go see. You have two choices. The South or West Rim. The West Rim is closer at 120 miles and the South Rim is about 277 miles from Vegas. The rims offer different experiences and sights. If you want an adventure, you should go to the West Rim but if you want to soak up natural beauty, you should go to the South Rim.

The West Rim is also home to the Grand Canyon Skywalk. This is an amazing bridge made of glass. It is an amazing feat of architecture and cost about $30 million to build. It is a very popular attraction at the canyon and you can walk out on it 70 beyond the rim. Then you can peer down 4000 feet to the canyon floor beneath you.

South Rim Coach Tours

If you want to go to the South Rim, pick a tour that allows you a few hours to tour the National Park. You want to visit Yaki and Mather Points. They are notable lookouts and very popular attractions at the South Rim. Also stop at Bright Angel Lodge and visit the gift shop if you have time.

Make sure you realize how long these coach trips last. They take a full day. West Rim trips take around 13 hours while the South Rim tours take about 15 hours. So, it is best not to make any plans for the evening of your tour. You probably won't get back in time. If you do want to do something that night, schedule it for 11 pm or later. Remember, Vegas never sleeps so if you aren't worn out after your tour, you will find plenty to do.

That covers the most important things you need to know about taking a bus tour to the Grand Canyon out of Vegas. Of course, there is much more to learn as you look into it more such as the free shuttle service you get that picks you up at your hotel and takes you back after the tour. The tours include lunch too. You get a picnic box lunch at the West Rim while you get to choose from a box lunch or a hot buffet at the South Rim.

Best Price

These tours sell out so be sure to book your trip at least 72 hours ahead of time. If you want to be on the safe side, get your seats a week ahead of time, especially during peak travel times. Buy your tour online too. You will find the best deals there. Complete the transaction online and you get to take advantage of the low Internet rate and save some money.

Driving In London

by Chiitaranjan Pali
Although London's public transport network is reasonably well developed, many people tire quickly of the hot queues and complexity of the underground, train and bus systems and so would rather drive while visiting London. This is all fine, but make sure you read on for our quick guide to driving in London before hitting the roads.
First things, this may seem like a simple thing, but it's scary just how many people don't realize that in the UK we drive on the left, and while you're driving make sure not to forget to put on your seat belt and remind your passengers to do the same as a restraint of some kind is absolutely compulsory in the UK. If you have small kids with you, then they will need to be in a car seat or other appropriate restraint - if you're hiring a car then you can no doubt get this from the dealer as an extra - don't forget as if you're caught without these things you'll incur annoying and steep fines.
Finding your way around the busy roads of London is by no means the easiest thing to do in the world. It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with your route before driving, you could also use a GPS system, and for times when that just isn't working out - you'll find it's a good idea to always keep a London road map handy in the glove compartment. If you're driving in Central London you'll also have to contend with heavy traffic and of course the congestion charge which is in force in and around much of Central London. You can keep on top of the traffic by referring to the Government's Highway Agency traffic news website - which has up-to-the-minute traffic updates.
For those of you planning on staying in London, or anywhere in the UK for that matter, for longer than a holiday, then bare in mind that non-UK driving licenses are valid in Britain for up to 12 months from your entry date. After that you'll need to apply for a UK driving license, though this can also depend on your circumstances so make sure you check all the facts before applying. If you're going to be driving a motorbike or moped in the capital, then you should be aware that the roads can be narrow and busy. To help, you could attend a Bike Safe lesson or two, which are designed with the streets of London in mind.
If you aren't driving into London with your own car, then you'll likely need to hire a vehicle in London or from your arrival point. To ensure you get the best deal, we recommend that you use a comparison service such as Car Rentals Network, where you can compare car rental deals and book from London's entire top car hire companies. You can pick up your vehicle at the airport, train station or any number of other points throughout the city.

High Value Vehicles and Gap Insurance

 by Thomas Luetchford

It is not yet clear whether high value vehicles depreciate more or less than the average vehicle. One side of the argument is that if a vehicle is worth more, it will have more room to depreciate and the other argument is, if the vehicle is worth more, it will be more likely to hold its value.
As you may or may not be aware, depreciation is the rate at which your vehicle will lose value over the course of ownership. It is said that the average vehicle using the average amount of mileage will lose approximately 50% of its original value within the first three years of ownership.
This will leave you vulnerable if your vehicle was ever written off or stolen, as your comprehensive motor insurer would only ever cover the market value of your vehicle on the day it was written off or stolen. For Example, if you have purchased a vehicle for somewhere in the region of £30,000, just three years later, your vehicle may only be worth somewhere in the region of £15,000.
If you woke up one morning in that third year and your vehicle had disappeared off the driveway, you would only ever receive the market value of your vehicle on the day it was declared a total loss. This could leave you thousands of pounds out of pocket and if you are paying for your vehicle through the form of a financial agreement, then you could be left paying for a vehicle you no longer own.
However, this is where Gap Insurance can help you. As it is not yet clear whether or not your vehicle will hold its high value or lose more than the average, it is only safe to cover yourself for the worst possible outcome.
There are a number of Gap Insurance providers online who now have the ability to offer claim limits from £5,000 to £50,000 ensuring you that there is a high enough claim limit for your circumstance. So, be sure to ask your Gap Insurance provider all about claim limit and whether the one you think you should choose is appropriate or not.
Claim limit can often be a taboo subject for certain providers online, as they often aim to recommend a lower claim limit than appropriate to make themselves seem a lot more less expensive compared to other providers. So, be sure to confirm the claim limit, type of cover and price when finding the best quote for you.

Limousine Tips for Wedding Events

By John Vuong

Your wedding should be one of the highlights of your life. That day must be in perfect order and everyone in attendance should be having a great time. Most couples, though, want their wedding to be classy and stylish, making limousines a very common vehicle during a wedding like this. The limousine exudes elegance and style, making an arriving bride blush and ever ready to face her groom. But finding an appropriate limo service is a task not done in a rush. This article then gives you some basic but wedding-saving tips to score the very best company offering limo services.
Selecting the right vehicle
You will have to determine the exact number of people who will be inside the limousine service. Some couples want the limousine to transport the entire bridal party. Another limousine may have to convey the groom along with his groomsmen as well. These are very necessary stuff to think about and whole lot more to think thoroughly in regards to choosing the right limo for your classy wedding. Identifying your wedding needs will then lead to which vehicle service will suit a wedding the most. In a church wedding, for example, you might require a large-capacity limo to carry to and fro from church to the reception area, plus a smaller limo for the newlyweds to transport them to their honeymoon.
Establish the service times
This part might be tricky, since timing a wedding can be an easy feat to accomplish, what with some small or large-scale delays that may happen. But the limo company you will hire has to get the wedding schedule for them to keep up with the various events. Give a realistic and reliable estimate for lesser hassles and drama to happen.
Decide on which limo rental company you will hire
Quality, preference and budget all come hand in hand when you as a couple decide on the limo company you want to hire. The limousine company must also be reputable and well known for you to trust their services. Rental companies usually also give difference limo packages so make sure to browse and find out about them so that you can get your money's worth while having the wedding of your life. Also ask these companies if you can look into their limousines. You need to be assured of a good conditioned vehicle to transport you to the very important and memorable day of your life. The driver who will be sending you to the wedding area must also be scrutinized. Make sure that the drive has his license and has the experience in driving.
When it comes to your wedding, quality should not be compromised. A glitch here and there will always be there, and there is no such thing as another wedding to plan or do, so you need to perfect your research and make a wise choice. You can always ask for recommendations and help from your friends and family members for which limousine service in Toronto is perfect for you. Toronto is a city with great limousine rental providers, with LIMOLAND being an example, so do not worry about finding none.
