Happy Aunts’ and Uncles’ Day!

In Writing (all kinds) on July 26, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Let’s celebrate this interesting and innovative article today from the Toronto Star. I encourage the Star to do the same story about uncles. So, a Professional Uncle No Kids would be a PUNK. Punk music can be rather good.

Donna and Her Volkswagen

My Volkswagen Golf is the idea of my eldest niece! When she was three years old, she asked me why I did not have a car? So, shortly after, I was heading out with my sister, my eldest niece, my baby niece at the time (they actually still are very young), and we had seen the Smurfs 2 movie. I tried a Mazda first. I found it too shaky. I found the 2011 Volkswagen that I have to be smooth. I leased it first for four years and my father helped me to buy out the lease when the lease was over. I got the personalized license plates about four years ago. I have a child’s seat in the back for my youngest niece for when she is in the car. No, it’s not diesel! Britain has actually started banning diesel vehicles as of today, just as an aside.

The Toronto Police Service would like to encourage the public to be aware of a recent increase in wallet and purse thefts.

It is reported that:

– wallets and purses are being stolen from people while they are distracted

– the incidents have occurred while victims were eating at restaurants and food courts

– suspects have taken advantage of victims who either hang their purses over chairs, or left wallets in the pocket of jackets which were hanging on the back of chairs

– the credit/debit cards of the victims are then immediately used to make purchases using the tap feature and, in some cases, the security access codes are changed, permitting the suspects to make withdrawals and further purchases

– some victims have lost thousands of dollars

Police are reminding the public to keep their valuable belongings in view at all times, making sure your property is always visible. Protect your security access codes while making purchases.

Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 416-808-5200, Crime Stoppers anonymously at 416-222-TIPS (8477), online at www.222tips.com, or text TOR and your message to CRIMES (274637). Download the free Crime Stoppers Mobile App on iTunes, Google Play or Blackberry App World.

[TPS] – Driver and motorcyclist safety reminders

In Writing (all kinds) on July 10, 2017 at 12:25 PM
Toronto Police Service
News Release

Driver and motorcyclist safety reminders

Monday, July 10, 2017 – 12:23 PM
Traffic Services
416-808-1900

Improving road safety and traffic flow for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists is one of our goals in support of the Service priority and commitment to safe communities and neighbourhoods.

This initiative also supports a component of the City of Toronto – Vision Zero Road Safety Plan. Vision Zero is a comprehensive five-year (2017-2021) action plan focused on reducing traffic-related fatalities and serious injuries on Toronto’s streets. The plan prioritizes the safety of our most vulnerable road-users, through a range of initiatives.

Since January 1, 2017, the Toronto Police Service has recorded 191 motorcycle-involved collisions. Toronto Police Service Traffic Services would like to remind both car drivers and motorcycle riders to exercise caution when operating their vehicles to help reduce collisions and save lives.

Motorcycle rider safety tips

1) Take a course: it’s important for you to learn how to drive a motorcycle safely and to be evaluated by an instructor. Your skill-set will develop as you learn to control the motorcycle. The motorcycle shouldn’t control you.

2) Make sure you have proper riding gear: a helmet is required by law, but riders should also think of wearing long-sleeved shirts, long pants, ankle boots and a jacket (even when it’s hot outside). Riding in the sun constantly drains you, and you should think about reducing road rash in case of a fall.

3) Make yourself visible: many collisions are caused by a motor vehicle turning into the path of a motorcycle driver. You want other drivers to see you. Wear a reflective vest or contrasting colours and continually try to make eye contact with drivers to be sure they’re aware of you.

4) Slow down: most fatal collisions are caused by excessive speed. Motorcycles are unstable vehicles and they have a limited grip on the road. You don’t want to lose control with excessive speed, especially around a turn.

5) Don’t ride impaired: you shouldn’t ride a motorcycle or drive a vehicle after drinking alcohol or consuming drugs, and you shouldn’t ride when you’re tired. You need 100 per cent of your attention and focus when operating a motorcycle.

6) Ride with a buddy: riding with friends allows you to occupy a full lane. This increases your visibility and you can keep an eye on one another if something goes wrong.

7) Make sure your motorcycle is properly maintained: check your vehicle frequently for general maintenance and problems. Tire pressure is especially important. The contact patches of your tires are about the size of a footprint. This small area is all that keeps you on the road. Any problems with tire pressure can be dangerous.

8) Communicate with other drivers: attempt to make eye contact with other drivers, making sure they’re aware of you and your movements. Consider using hand signals prior to turning or changing lanes as indicator lights on motorcycles are very small. Also, if you’re comfortable with a specific group of cars, stay with them.

9) Scan the road: many collisions are caused when cars turn into the path of motorcycles or come out of driveways. If you’re aware of what’s happening around you, you can avoid dangerous situations. Your head should be moving, checking your mirrors, and your eyes constantly scanning the road when riding on a motorcycle.

10) Refresh your skills: no matter how long you have been riding, you will be rusty after a few months. Your skills and association with a motorcycle deteriorate quickly when not riding, even for a short period of time. Take a refresher course if it’s been a while since you’ve ridden. Ask yourself, can I improve? Am I the best and safest driver I can be?

Car driver safety tips for motorcycles

Here are some general rules to keep in mind the next time you share the road with motorcycles.

1) Follow the five-second rule: increase your driving distance when you find yourself behind a motorcycle and maintain a space or distance equivalent to at least five seconds.

2) Adjust your driving for poor or inclement weather: inclement weather is even more hazardous for a motorcycle rider than it is for a car driver. If a motorcycle is ahead of you, anticipate the rider might face challenges that you may not give them extra space.

3) Look before you turn: most often, when a vehicle makes a left or right turn, and is involved in a collision, the driver often states they did not see the motorcyclist. The reality is they should have. Take a second or third look before making that turn. Adjust your turn so you can see past any obstructions preventing you from making sure the road is clear. As drivers, you are responsible for all movements made by your vehicle.

3) Check your blind spots often: since motorcycles are much smaller than cars, it’s that much easier for them to slip into your blind spot – especially when they’re attempting to pass you. Don’t be a lazy driver. Check your blind spots regularly and, in particular, before starting a lane change.

4) Be a co-operative driver: this tip goes for all kinds of safe driving. Just be courteous. All road-users make mistakes. Don’t make a mistake that will cost someone their life. Communicating with other road-users so both your actions and theirs will be known, helps reduce the chances of a collision.

Safe operation, regardless of the type of vehicle a person operates, is critical to the safety of all road-users. Together we can make the roads safer by following all the rules.

Public Safety Alert, Internet transactions, How to protect yourself online

Wednesday, July 5, 201712:29 PM
14 Division
416-808-1400

The Toronto Police Service would like to remind the public to be careful when buying or selling merchandise through online classified advertisements.

Safety tips to help you complete your transaction online:

– meet the person in a safe public space to complete the transaction

– tell a friend or family member that you are going to meet someone for a purchase or a sale

– if you can, bring a family member or friend with you

– review all emails and addresses to ensure they are not fake

– search the name of the person you’re going to meet, or the name of the business, online to see if anyone has reported that person or business as fraudulent

– read the advertisement completely

– fake websites will have spelling errors and links that do not function, or bad grammar

– do not make the deal outside of the website the item is being sold on (some websites offer money-back guarantees)

– make sure you read the entire policy of the website before you buy or sell merchandise

– do not provide personal information to anyone over the internet

– do not send money to receive money

– do not wire money to an individual

– do not meet the person at your home

This is not a complete list of precautions that you can take and does not ensure that you will not be defrauded. This will, however, reduce the likelihood of falling for a scam.

MANISH’S ZODIAC SIGNS PREDICTIONS ( 3RD JULY – 9TH JULY )

In Writing (all kinds) on July 3, 2017 at 3:00 AM

Aries ( 21 March – 19 April ) – You will be motivated by exciting plans with the support of friends or family, on whom you can count to bring your projects to fruition. It will be a time when you will be listened to and heard by your friends. You will have considerable assets for coming together around a real desire to share and assuage your sensuality, which will currently be explosive. However focus more on the serious and being pragmatic, rather than on a tendency to exaggerate and demand more than people appear ready to give you. Favorable Dates : July  6 Favorable Colors : White & Purple

Taurus ( 20 April – 20 May ) – Your ambitions are in the process of being realized and your horizons will be clearer. This week will involve you communicating with all and sundry, but also being flexible.  You will also be keener on looking after your love-life. You will also link up with people who will join your clan and could integrate into your world for the long term. You will aspire to widen your horizons and realize your dreams, but negotiations underway in high places will have a tendency to bring you back down to earth with a nasty bump. Favorable Dates : July 3 Favorable Colors : Red & Yellow

Gemini ( 21 May – 20 June) – Your ambitions will be hampered by an adversary, who will remain nameless, but will stand in your way and spread rumours about you. Fortunately, you will manage to stay in control of the situation by relying on your intuition or falling back on your inner resources. You will succeed in disarming people when tensions will mount and exchanges will become tense. Love will play tricks, but you will end up triumphing over difficulties, especially in raising the level of debate. Things will pick up and your plans will take off.  Favorable Dates : July 4 Favorable Colors : Red & Grey Read the rest of this entry »
