Here are a 8 measures you can put in place to avoid being a victim this 2020
8) DO NOT PARK YOUR VEHICLE IN ISOLATED AREAS
Except in the case of a malfunctioning or broken-down vehicle, it is advisable to avoid parking in isolated areas. Hoodlums and thieves are known to prefer to attack in remote, isolated or dark areas. If your car has a fault, it is important that you stay in the car, put on your hazard lights and call for assistance.
7) DO NOT WIND DOWN YOUR WINDOWS COMPLETELY
This is a rule you must stick to, whether or not the air conditioning system of your vehicle is functioning, avoid winding the side windows down completely. This is because you could be distracted from outside while someone picks up your phone, bags and other items. It is advisable that if you have to keep your windows down, make sure the spaces left would not permit a hand to go through.
6) DON’T ALIGHT FROM YOUR CAR EVEN WHEN BASHED FROM BEHIND
We know this is a difficult thing to ask especially with the kind of drivers we have in the city and cost of panel beating and respraying, but not coming down could save you a lot more. It is important that you try not to overreact. If you must come down, keep your valuables out of sight, alight from the car and lock the doors immediately. Never leave your doors wide open or unlocked while you are arguing with whoever bashed your car.
5) DON’T FALL FOR THE “YOU BRUSHED ME” TRAP
Thieves are known to approach unsuspecting drivers with the claims that they have a punctured tyre or with the allegation that you brushed their car. Stay in the car, keep it locked and wind up your window. If it is a flat tyre drive till you get to a safe place and then check.
4) AVOID USING YOUR PHONE WHILE IN TRAFFIC
For several reasons, it is advisable that you keep your phones away when in traffic especially if you are the only passenger in the vehicle. Your phone could be snatched by thieves walking by or on bikes. In some cases, thieves have judged the possible wealth of the passenger by looking at what phone is being used. It is better safe than sorry. If you must use a phone for calls, please receive your calls using a hands-free or ear piece.
3) BE CAREFUL WHEN GIVING LIFTS TO STRANGERS 
It is a good thing to give lifts to random people with your vehicle, especially in the early hours of the morning or after a heavy downpour, but you have to be careful when deciding to do so. Thieves can pose as stranded people to gain access into your vehicle. Be vigilant and follow your intuition.
2) PROTECT YOUR SIDE WINDOWS, USE A TINT AND GET A CAR SECURITY
It is advised that you get a window protection from possible smashing by thieves. There are several reliable companies who offer such protective services. A tint will also protect what you do in the vehicle from prying eyes and give you that added level of privacy. You should also install a vehicle locking and tracking device to ensure that in the event your vehicle is taken, it can be located and retrieved.
1) KEEP ALL YOUR IMPORTANT ITEMS OUT OF SIGHT
Keeping your items out of sight is the number one rule. It is important that you do not leave your valuables in the vehicle. Valuable items such as laptops, designer bags, gadgets are known to attract thieves who could approach with tricks of distractions or could break your side glass to gain access to them. The safest place to keep such items are in the trunk (boot) of your car

Never shake your gas cylinder no matter the situation, even if you feel it has gone to zero. Their is still a great tendency for explosion if care is not taken.
If you want to know the level of gas in your cylinder, simply follow these few steps.

1. Bring out the gas cylinder to a broad place.

2. Fetch a cup of water

3. Bend to the side of the cylinder

4.Pour the water from top to the bottom on the side of the cylinder

5.Leave it for sometime, the empty side will dry up while the place that still contains gas inside will still remain hydrated.

See picture below.....

Very simple and safe, just for your safety. Never shake the cylinder anymore. Hope this info is helpful, like and share and stay put to my channel for continued update of such info and many more. Don't forget to comment if you don't know what to write just say hi that's the height of appreciation that this info was helpful to you..... See you next time.

avoid this things when driving an automatic car

Automatic transmission cars are easy to drive. Though the mechanism involved in an automatic transmission is complex. Due to their complexity, automatic transmissions are expensive to repair. In order to maintain a vehicle with an automatic transmission gearbox, here are a few things you shouldn’t do in an automatic transmission vehicle.
Using ‘Park’ As a Break:
Never put your car on “P” while the car is moving. The locking mechanism which is a pin, prevents the car from moving when it’s in “Park”. The Pin is called a Park Pawl. The Park Pawl acts as a lock in between the gears. This pin stops the gears from rotating, which prevents the car from moving. Therefore suddenly shifting the gear to “Park” risks damaging the park mechanism.
Not Paying Attention to Transmission Fluid:
The time required to check on transmission fluids isn’t much and it certainly doesn’t cost that much to change the fluid. It is always better to spend a little on preventive maintenance than to have to pay for complete repairs. It should be noted that there are separate transmission fluids for ATF and CVT transmissions. Adding ATF fluid in a car with CVT Transmission or vise versa would damage transmission system and it will have to be replaced.
Shifting to Neutral When Going Down the Hill:
Putting the car on neutral while the car is moving downhill is not recommended at all. This is because when the car is in neutral, you have no control over the speed at which, the car is travelling. A lot of people believe that they are saving fuel when the car is descending in neutral, this however isn’t the case. Most modern automatic transmission systems cut the fuel supply of the car while the car is moving downhill.
Revving the Car to Launch it:
Revving the engine in neutral and shifting it to drive to launch it can damage the automatic transmission. An automatic transmission gearbox has bands and clutches, which can get worn off prematurely due to excessive stress and pressure applied to them. When revving, the bands and clutches tend to slip when the car launches.
Shifting Between Gears While Car is Moving:
Always make sure that you come to a complete stop when shifting gears in an automatic transmission. Bands and clutches are responsible for gear changes in an automatic transmission. These bands and clutches have friction material linings in them, which last a life time. When the car is in motion and gears are shifted, a lot of load is applied to the bands and clutches, which damage the frictional material, ultimately damaging the transmission.
The above mentioned are just a few important things a driver should keep in mind when driving a vehicle with automatic transmission. It is recommended to get the transmission oil checked every 5000Km-7000Km. Always use the transmission oil recommended in the car’s owner manual.

7 HABITS YOU MUST STOP IN EVERY CHILD


7 HABITS YOU MUST STOP IN EVERY CHILD
BEFORE THEY BECOME ADOLESCENTS
The Bible is not making a mistake when it says. “Train up a child in the way that he should go. And when he is old, he will not depart from it.” (Proverbs 22:6).
Child training commences from the womb. A pregnant woman communicates, or should communicate with the child in her womb. Even caring fathers who understand this divine principle of connecting with their unborn child utilize every available opportunity to talk to the unborn baby.
Caring mums and dads speak definite words into the lives of their children long before they are born. These parents do not stop or go on recess when the childrenare born; they continue bonding with them. Parent-child bonding is one of the greatest fruitful bonding among human beings.
Training of infants is a continuation of the parent-child bonding that came into existence when the child was still in the womb. From the infancy stage till the pre-teen years, the type of parenting is basically total parenting. As the name implies, total parenting means that the parents are totally in charge of the child’s life.
This does not in any way remove the rights of the child. It only gives the parents some measure of dominance and control over the child. It is at this stage that most values are inculcated into the child.
As soon as the child becomes an adolescent, the game plan changes. There is a switch to cooperative parenting. Here, the parents are not in total control. The child, now referred to as teen is a major stake holder in decision making.
At this stage they question a lot of things and parents tend to get into lots of arguments with them.One of the reasons for this is the fact that they are now exposed to more external influences than when they were children. In addition, they have minds of their own, and some of them have started making their own plans for the future.
It is obvious that it will be difficult, if not impossible to knock off habits that have taken root in an individual from childhood to adolescence. Some of them will clutch these habits tightly and defend them vehemently.
Do you now see reasons with me why the most effective parenting period is the period between when a child is born and when they become adolescents?
In view of this, there are seven unwholesome habits that must be dealt with before the child crosses over to the adolescent and post-adolescent years. It will be fool hardy trying to handle those issues later. Some of those habits later degenerate into more terrible social vices if they were not dealt with in childhood, unless by divine intervention,.
The habits include:
LYING:
This is very common in children. In fact it is one of those attributes of the Adamic nature one cannot explain how they cross over from one generation to the next. Children start to lie so early in life; long before they even get to understand basic concepts of life. If this tendency is not curtailed early enough the individual may grow up to become a chronic liar. There are some people who are so addicted to lies to the extent that even the truth sounds like lies in their mouth. If you don’t want your child to become one of such folks do everything within your power to instill truth consciousness into them before they become hardened and incorrigible. Remember that all liars shall go to hell (Revelations 21:8).
LAZINESS:
Laziness is a disease that kills intellect, ideas and wastes opportunities.A lazy man is a chronic non-achiever. He remains at the base perpetually; ever dreaming but never getting to the top. And this disease starts in childhood. Some children want everything to be done for them, including the things they can and should do for themselves. They just find it difficult to put their feet to the ground. Such children are good at manufacturing all manner of excuses to explain why they could not or should not do some things. Unfortunately, many parents constantly play into their hands. Give your children age-appropriate tasks and make sure they are up and doing. Don’t allow laziness in them, otherwise they will imbibe it as a way of life. And if they grow into adolescent with it, everyday you will keep fighting with them even to dress the bed on which they slept. There are many children who are gifted to be super stars and champions but laziness robbed them of those honourable positions. Let your children know from very early in life that laziness is forbidden in your home.
LACK OF CONTENTMENT:
 This manifests in various forms like insatiable appetite, greed, selfishness, etc. Selfishness can be excused as one of the normal childish behaviours. But if it takes the turn of always craving for things and never being satisfied, or trying to monopolize what should be shared with others, then something needs to be done urgently. A greedy child will always be ungrateful and unhappy. And if it is condoned till later years of one’s life it becomes a serious problem. Many teenagers go into cultism and other vices because of lack of contentment. They are not content with what their parents give to them or to the opportunities they have in life. Some rob, maim or even kill others because of greed. They did not become robbers or killer overnight. It started in childhood. Or, the parents saw the signs but ignored them and assumed that the child would eventually outgrow it. Tackle lack of contentment and greed in your child now before it is too late.
BULLYING:
 Some children are bullies right from when they were toddlers, and their parents know it. They bully every other child around them, sometimes to the glee of their parents. Ignorance makes some parents to hail their bully children instead of reprimanding them. Mums, especially take it that their baby is super strong or macho man. A bully child will grow into a bully teenager then later become a bully adult. You cannot reshape a dry wood; if you try to do so it may break or injure you. Therefore, if you know, as I am thinking you should, that the life of a bully is not something worthy of emulation then do everything possible to rid your young child of that tendency now. We have bully husbands today, physically abusing their wives because they were not tamed as children. There are also bully wives, although they are in the minority.
PILFERING:
 I wonder how and why some people believe that a pilferer is not a thief. Many children indulge in pilfering right under their parents’ noses and no one takes it serious. They start from scooping milk from the milk container to picking pieces of meat from the soup pot. They graduate to taking few coins from their mummy’s purse to buy chocolates. Within a space of time he starts pilfering from friends and teachers in the school. All the while folks treat it with levity. As the child grows older, he has more pressing needs and starts taking things of higher value. With time, he gets hardened and becomes more daring and innovative in his pilfering business. Many of the dare-devil armed robbers we have today started with pilfering. Initially they thought it was a game and that they were being smart. And no one corrected them when their hearts were still impressionable. Take a very hard stand against any child that pilfers until the fellow is delivered totally. Use every possible and available tool, including prayers, counseling, different disciplinary measures, etc. to work on the child.
STUBBORNNESS:
 I have seen a case where a child of less than 5 years held his parents and every member of the family to ransom until his wish was granted. It was not a one-time occurrence; it happened repeatedly. He would insist on whatever he wanted and stand by it until his desires are met, whether they were right or wrong. No one could control him; he was like a lord and his words were laws in the home. There are many other cases like this one. And the parents will make bold to tell you that he is only a child and will get over it when he grows older. Blatant lie! A stubborn, unruly child will grow into a stubborn and unruly adult, unless the fellow encounters Jesus and gives and surrenders to His Lordship. The child that challenges you or raises his hands against you now and you are not doing anything about it will haul stones at you as a preteen and may point the gun at your head when he becomes a teenager. If you cannot get them to listen or obey you as children, you will definitely have no say over them as adolescents.
IMMORAL BEHAVIOR:
 It is no longer news that children are overly exposed to adult contents these days. From the cartoons they watch to the product jingles and adverts on the TV screens. More are even calling their attention on the internet. The phones, laptops, game consoles and all other screens are full of contents that corrupt the minds of children. Are you aware that children as young as 4 years old are becoming addicted to pornography? And all these things are taking their toll on the moral life of our children. Many of them are indulging in immoral acts before their parents and while some ignorantparents assume that they are just playing with each other. You had better woken up before it is too late. Sit up and guide your children away from immorality if you notice them doing anything silly with themselves or with other children. It is addictive; once they start in that direction they may never stop. Adolescents naturally have problems managing their sexuality, but it becomes even more difficult if they had been exposed to such things as children. The number of porn stars and other sexual offenders we have today will reduce drastically if we start early to guide our children morally.
These 7 things mentioned have direct bearing to the life of every individual. Therefore, the earlier they are well managed in a child, the easier it becomes to raise that child into a responsible adult.
