SUV Rollovers Pose Serious Auto Accident Risks

The sport utility vehicle (SUV) has the highest rate of death in rollover accidents. According to government tests, SUV rollovers are almost three times more likely to occur than in the average passenger car, and the most stable SUV is still more unstable than the most unstable car. In 2002, nearly 11,000 people died in rollover accidents, 61 percent of which occurred in SUVs. With the number of people killed in SUV rollovers increasing by 14 percent per year, consumers should be aware of the risks SUVs pose to their families. Even more alarming than the rising rollover statistics is the withholding of rollover information by the government and auto manufacturers.Sobering StatisticsThough the number of SUV rollover fatalities continues to escalate, but SUVs are not being manufactured to better resist rollover crashes. Not a single SUV earned the federal agency's highest safety rating, according to an NHTSA report in 2003. However, SUV consumption has increased: SUV popularity created a large increase in sales...

School Vending Machines, Choice Versus Regulation

So much emphasis today is about portion control versus value. These seem to be the most fraught battles festering between folks interested in making legislation to fight obesity and folks afraid that regulating large food corporations is just step one towards a nanny state of restricted choices for citizens. Still, on either side of the argument there seems to be some agreement to basics on both sides of the debate. No one for example is looking to take away school vending machines all together. Instead the emphasis is generally on what said vending machines should stock and how large those items should be.Recently when New York mayor Michael Bloomberg started talking up a wide spread ban on extra large sodas people had a bit of a tizzy. Some worried that this was the first step towards making the full scale banning of sugary drinks and snacks justifiable and legal. Still others thought that the law would only be a band-aid on a nationwide health wound that was becoming worse and worse each day. In this debat...

 


Living Green

In these times of economic crisis and concerns over climate change and global warming, our thoughts are turning more towards reducing our ecological footprint to a more sustainable living, simply put, living green.Sustainable living goals can be said to have begun back in 1954, with the Helen and Scott Nearing publication, "Living the Good Life" opening the way to the "back to the roots" movement of the late 1960s and early 1970s. Whereas the early pioneers of green living advocated a simpler lifestyle, with reduced dependence on luxurious home comforts, modern technology, for all its faults, has enabled green living without the necessity to drastically change our lifestyle. We can, as it were, have our cake and eat it too.We can achieve green living in many ways. Storing rainwater, using solar powered water heaters and investing in composting toilets can have a significant effect on our water usage. Even the simple trick of placing a brick or weighted plastic bottle in the toilet cistern can reduce the amoun...

 


The facts surrounding Payment Protection Insurance

Payment Protection Insurance is also known as credit insurance or loan repayment insurance. It is sold along with loans and overdrafts by banks and credit companies. It covers a variety of different types of loan such as car loans, mortgages and credit cards. It is a kind of insurance which will cover the consumer in the case of the loss of a job, illness, disability, death or any other circumstance which would mean that the borrower was unable to earn in order to repay their debt. It usually covers the consumer for a period of 12 months and after this they will need to find their own means of repaying the debt. It has recently emerged that there has been a huge amount of Payment Protection Insurance policies which were fraudulently sold to people. The payment protection insurance tended to bring in far more capital for the credit companies and banks than the actual interest from the loans themselves. Credit companies and banks often sell the product at the same time as the overdraft or loan and often only sp...

 


Not All Safety Vests Are The Same

If your job requires you to do any kind of work outside in areas where there might be motorized traffic or other hazards, wearing a safety vest is an absolute must. If your employer doesn't provide one for you, how do you know which kind is right for your situation? Here is a description of the different kinds of safety vests available on the market today and the appropriate contexts for their use.Most safety vests are made from highly durable polyester mesh or water-resistant nylon. They are not designed to provide any kind of protection from the heat or cold: they are strictly meant to help the wearer be seen. All safety vests are reflective, of course, but that degree of reflection varies depending on which "class" the vest falls under. The higher the number of reflective tapes a vest displays, and the broader the width of those tapes, the higher the designated class it is intended for.-- Class 1: Class 1 vests are appropriate in environments where the worker retains a large degree of control over his surr...

What Is Herbal Skin Care?

Skin care is not a modern idea, it has been around for thousands of years. The big distinction is that we have changed from traditional herbal skin care to synthetic or chemical based products over the last one hundred years.Why we abandoned traditional herbal skin care is not completely clear, in fact there may be several reasons. A hundred years ago, people were fascinated by the sciences. They were seen as modern, a break-through, the saviour of mankind's health, an emergence from darkness and old-fashioned ways, despite the fact that a deficiency of regulation led to thousands of sham claims for wonder drugs, lotions and potions.Another reason could be that millions of people moved from the countryside, where they could collect herbs and spices while they were out labouring in the fields, to the city, where they had to work eight to ten hours a day in a factory and no longer had the chance to make their own herbal skin care products.These days there is a shift back to herbal skin care products. Some peopl...

Corporate social responsibility - a challenge to business

Recent years have seen a real surge in consumer awareness, with the economic downturn prompting a wide-ranging debate on the ethics of the current system. Perhaps frustrated by the lack of response from politicians, consumer activism has become an increasingly important force in civil society, putting pressure on businesses to reconsider their actions across a wide range of areas - including labour practices in developing countries and environmental issues. The rise of consumer activism is a relatively recent phenomenon and has forced firms to give more consideration to ethics - something that many argue was in relatively short supply in the years preceding the global financial crisis of 2008.While it might have the ring of a buzzword to it, corporate social responsibility is an increasingly important consideration for many businesses. In previous years, consumers' input in the world of business had been largely limited to price signals. While there have been countless isolated boycotts over the years, they h...
