Later, when the victim called the customer support number, she found out that she had been scammed. July 5 (12:59 p.m.) A Friendswood resident who received an email about an ATM card made the mistake of calling the phone number on the email. What they didnt know was that this was a phishing scam. Once the victim answered all of the questions, including their social security number, the victims lines of credit were maxed out. The scammer then tried to withdraw a large sum of money but was declined by the bank. The bank contacted the victim and verified that they would never ask for sensitive personal information over the phone. July 6 (4:10 p.m.) A Friendswood resident discovered fraudulent charges on her bank account. She was looking at her account online and found some charges that she did not recognize. She then received a call from the banks fraud department advising of suspicious activity. The card was cancelled. Fraudulent charges were made at the Blue Crystal Carwash, Fancy Food Store and Coca Cola Houston.

It wasn’t the gas cap. If tightening the gas cap didn’t do it, you’ll need to find someone with an OBD2 diagnostics tool or reader. Some garages will charge you just for plugging the device in and reading the code. If they do, walk away. They’re ripping you off. Better to find a garage or mechanic that will read the code and actually give you a diagnosis rather than just making you pay to find out a number. Smaller garages and local mechanics will normally do this for you for a small fee, and being independent, the diagnosis won’t be predicated on you buying some expensive parts from a corporate chain. If you’re a do-it-yourself type used to working from shop manuals, then a lot of places that will give you the diagnostic code for free. In America specifically, the Schuck’s chain do free diagnostics checks (Checker, Kragen, Murray’s, Advance) as well as AutoZone. Drop in – don’t phone up and ask. A lot of times if you phone up they’ll tell you it’s $40. If you just turn up, more often than not they’ll do it for nothing. In the UK I’m not sure who does – if you know, drop me a line. The alternative, if you’re into maintaining your own vehicles, is to buy a reader and do it yourself. The service engine light / Maint Reqd light. This might indicate “Service”, “Service Engine” or “Maint Reqd”.

And it maintains a constant speed, and wont use additional fuel while accelerating. Note that many modern vehicles will let you monitor your miles per gallon while youre driving. Try to set your cruise control at your vehicles most fuel-efficient speed, as long as its at or below the legal limit. Stay in gear when stopping While shifting into Neutral and coasting to a stop sounds like it would save fuel, the opposite is true: Many modern fuel-injected vehicles go into a fuel cutoff mode when the engine senses that the vehicle is in gear, the rpm is above idle, and the throttle is closed. Shifting to Neutral may cancel that mode, so keep it in gear. Turn off the engine while waiting If your non-hybrid vehicle is safely parked, and will be stopped for more than a couple of minutes, turn off the engine. This is even more effective if your vehicle is powered by a large 6- or 8-cylinder engine, as they typically will waste more fuel at idle than smaller engines. Combine trips Your engine is more efficient when its warmed up. Many short trips that start with a cool engine will use more fuel than a single, longer trip. So when you have to drive for errands, get as many accomplished as you can in one trip to maximize your fuel economy. FUEL-EFFICIENT MAINTENANCE TIPS Keep your engine tuned (up to 40%) Fixing a vehicle that is noticeably out of tune or has failed an emissions test can improve fuel mileage by an average of 4%. But heres the real bonusreplacing a malfunctioning oxygen sensor can improve your mileage by as much as 40%. Keep your tires properly inflated (up to 4%) Properly inflated tires are safer, handle better, last longer, and get better fuel economy. The operating vehicle tire inflation pressure can be found on a Certification Decal or Tire Decal, usually located on the drivers door, a door pillar, or the glove box. But dont exceed the operating tire pressure either, because overinflated tires can cause problems as well. Use the recommended grade of motor oil (up to 2%) Following the manufacturer’s recommended grade of motor oil in your Owners Guide will keep your engines lubrication system as efficient as possible. Using the wrong grade of oil can drop your fuel economy by up to 2%. All the little things can add up (up to 25% combined) The technicians at your local Ford dealership are trained to optimize your fuel economy. Along with the above-mentioned maintenance, they can change worn fuel filters and spark plugs, perform wheel alignments, and inspect your exhaust and emissions systems.

Cover windows. Use drapes, shades, awnings, or louvers for any windows that receive morning or afternoon sun. This can reduce the heat entering your home by up to 80 percent. Use fans strategically. Ceiling fans should run counter-clockwise to force room air down and make you feel cooler. Water from a spray bottle can help cool you down dramatically as it evaporates off your skin, your body sheds heat. Cook with small appliances. Slow cookers and tabletop grills are good options over traditional ovens and stovetops to minimize heat. Eating, Drinking, and Scheduling Exercise Drink plenty of water and other fluids. Don’t wait to rehydrate until you’re thirsty. Adults should drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day and may need more on hot and humid days. Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and carbonated drinks. These can lead to dehydration and increase the effects of heat illness.

These shops are the best ones to use. There are certain repairs that you can do yourself. Many situations can be self-remedied. You can take your chances by going on the Internet to find some information to see if you can locate the problem. When its a simple fix, do it yourself! Dont forget about wiper blades.

The Dodge Durango is a mid-to large-size SUV that’s family-friendly with its seven-passenger seating capacity. As it’s loosely related to the Mercedes GL-Class, the Durango is more comfortable than it’s been in earlier generations. Just about everything is better in this new generation, so go ahead and judge this book by its cover.
See our  2014 Dodge Durango review  for pricing with options, specifications, and gas mileage ratings.
Over the years, the Durango’s competition has included the Ford Explorer, Toyota 4Runner, and Nissan Pathfinder, as well as the defunct Chevy TrailBlazer and GMC Envoy. Currently, it’s most closely matched with the GMC Acadia, the Explorer, the Pathfinder, and the Jeep Grand Cherokee.
The Durango was originally introduced in 1998. While the 1998 to 2003 Durango models attempted to cast the widest net to the mass market, it seemed, these first-generation models were relatively simple, truck-based SUVs with underpinnings borrowed from the Dakota pickups, and they didn’t make much effort to hid their truck roots. Models with V-8s under the hood—either the 5.2-liter or 5.9-liter—were more popular than the wheezy, slow-revving base engine, a 3.9-liter V-6. A 4.7-liter V-8 later joined the lineup and offered somewhat better gas mileage.
Overall, these first-generation versions of the Durango could be quite luxuriously equipped—and their ride wasn’t bad for a model with truck underpinnings—but these models offered somewhat clumsy handling and roadholding. In an early drive of this Durango we noted that Dodge had promoted the Durango as “Not too big, not too little, but just right,” and we pronounced that “despite the same story line, the 1998 Durango is no fairy tale.”
In 2004, Dodge delivered what the market might have been hungrier for had it come out in 1998: a true full-size SUV. At a time when Americans were just starting to fizzle out on the most monstrous of SUVs, this Durango’s arrival was unfortunate. The 2004 Durango, as the new Dakota that came out around that time, had much more in common with the larger Ram and rode on a new coil-spring rear suspension with Watt linkage—which greatly improved this vehicles handling over rough surfaces, even though it was larger and heavier than its predecessor. Initially the Durango was offered with a 210-horsepower, 3.7-liter V-6; a 230-hp, 4.7-liter V-8, or a 330-hp, 5.7-liter ‘Hemi’ V-8. V-6 models got four-speed automatic transmission, while V-8 models got a five-speed, and the Durango now offered rear-wheel drive; four-wheel drive with a low range; or an all-wheel-drive system.
For 2007, the Durango got a slight refresh, then for 2008, both V-8 engines in the Durango got more power—to 303 hp for the 4.7-liter and 376 hp for the 5.7-liter. And that was much-welcomed; for all of these second-generation model years, we found the 5,000-plus-pound Durango to feel heavy and a bit sluggish—even with its V-8 engines. But tow ratings we impressive (up to 8,500 pounds), and toward the end of its run (around 2008) Dodge introduced more tech and entertainment features—such as the MyGig infotainment system, which was pretty advanced for its time. EPA ratings for some of these models landed in the low teens, and we saw single-digit mpg figures in a couple of drives of the earlier Hemi more? info… versions. A few 2009 Dodge Durango Hybrid models are out there—reviews noted reasonably improved performance and much-improved fuel economy—but the model was costly and a hard sell.
After a one-year hiatus, the current-generation version of the Durango was introduced for 2011, and even though it’s not all that much smaller than the version it replaces, it’s a world apart. With a newfound focus toward on-the-road performance—as well as fantastic refinement and a warm, top-notch interior including conveniences like adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, push-button start, a heated steering wheel, and Sirius Backseat TV—the 2011 Durango took after German luxury SUVs without completely turning its back on ruggedness and towing. Powertrains included a V-6 that shoppers no longer need shy away from—a 290-hp version of Chrysler’s 3.6-liter Pentastar V-6—along with a snarly 5.7-liter Hemi V-8.
Sharing its underpinnings with the Jeep Grand Cherokee and owing some of its engineering influence to former Chrysler owner Daimler (you can see it in some of the details, and interior packaging), the latest Durango shares its mechanicals with the Jeep Grand Cherokee but is longer so as to allow a third row of seating. The current Durango, as you’ll see in our video review , has a much smoother, more modern look and competes head-on with models like the Chevrolet Traverse and new Ford Explorer, as well as teasing a lower price than the Mercedes-Benz GL-Class.
The Durango received very few changes for 2013, although Dodge made leather seating standard and made second-row captain’s chairs available on all models; also a new Rallye Appearance Package essentially brought the R/T appearance for a more affordable price. Blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-path detection upper the Durango’s status on safety-minded shopping lists as well. Over the past couple of years, Dodge and Mopar have teased the Durango’s potential, in models like the Durango Tow Hook Concept from the 2011 SEMA Show. And late in 2012, the automaker made a Special Services edition of the Durango available to first responders and agencies. 
For the 2014 model year , the Durango is expected to get an updated transmission, a version of the new ZF eight-speed now found in the Jeep Grand Cherokee.

XCAR: MG, then and now
6:27 /
July 12, 2014
There’s a new MG in town, the MG3. We take a look back to the beginnings of the legendary British sportscar manufacturer and find out if the latest ride to brandish the MG badge can live up to its ancestors.
[MUSIC] When I think of MG, I think of something like this, the MGB, the quintessential MG sports car. Such a car driven by a bit of a cad with a cigarette hanging out of the side of his mouth, a pretty girl in the passenger’s seat, and a big grin on his face. It’s good looking, affordable, attainable fun. NG’s is a rich one. In the early 20s, Cecil Kimber was the sales and later general manager of Morris Garages, a Morris leadership in Oxford. Kimber took the stock model vehicles his employee was turning out and turned them into faster sportier cars. He badged these cars MG for Morris Garages and they’ve been known for their affordable performance. MG even made its mark in motor sports as one of the first non-Italian teams to bag a win at the Milia Milia. MGs were a commercial hit too, outgrowing their original home and finding a new one in Abingdon, Oxfordshire where the company would stay until 1980. In 1982 then owned by the British Motor Corporation, MG launched this, the MGB. The MG that pretty much everybody thinks of. It had a pretty innovative and modern design for it’s time. It’s pretty light, and as such, quite nifty and wonderfully, the majority of them were exported to the US. This is the MGB GT. It’s got a 1.8 liter 4 cylinder engine, which puts out 95 brake horsepower. Top speed is around 105-ish, at least when it was new, and nought to 60 happens in around 13 1/2 seconds. But it wasn’t enough. You see, the latter part of the 20th century wasn’t great for the British automotive industry, and as such MG kept changing hands over and over again. In 1980 under British [UNKNOWN] ownership, it was killed off to cut costs only to be resurrected again in 1982 not to make cars of its own, but to make performance versions of Austin’s. After a brief stint under BAE ownership in 1994, BMW bought the Rover group which comprised of Rover, Land Rover and MG. In 1995, the company launched the MGF, the car that should have taken MG back to the sports car for but it, didn’t. By 2000, BMW had lost enough money and sold its British subgrounds. Land Rover went to Ford and MG Rover was formed by the Phoenix consortium and its product line up was interesting. The MGF has been developed as such and became the TF and the rest of the MG’s stable would tweaked rovers. Even with a body kit, the Rover 75 didn’t really appeal to that many people. That said, the SB Super car was pretty cool. MG Rover lasted five years before lack of interest and therefore sales killed it stone dead. In 2005, when MG Rover went down, many people wondered when they’d see either brand on the road ever again. However there was hope in the form of [UNKNOWN] and then later SAIC, China’s biggest car maker. In 2011 the brand launched a new car, the MG6, in the UK. It was dubbed as alright. Now there’s a new MG, the 3 and it’s a hatchback. [MUSIC] A small hatch at that, it’s got four doors and a boos and it’s got a racing stripe and a 1.5 liter petrol engine with 106 break horsepower, 101 pound foot. [UNKNOWN] of 62 takes 10.9 seconds. And it’s top speed is a whole 108 miles an hour. [MUSIC] This isn’t the kind of thing you think of when you see an MG badge is it? Can it really be a proper MG? Proper MGs are fun sporty little cars that don’t only offer a good drive but also offer something of an experience. So does the MG3 manage that? In a word, no. It’s quite a [INAUDIBLE] hefty little thing. I’ve been driving it around now for a few days, I mean, up and down the country in it. You wouldn’t expect a car built for the city cuz let’s face it is a little hatchback city car thing. You wouldn’t expect a car like that to be able to have motor weight and things like that. But I drove it up and down to Warwick, and it was fine just [INAUDIBLE]. And it’ll happily cruise at 70 miles an hour. It is a little bit noisy and you do have to rev it to get anything out of the engines, cuz you’ve only got 101 pound foot, so, there’s not too much to work with. As an experience, I didn’t get out of it and go, ooh, I can’t wait till I drive the MG3 again. That’s amazing. [MUSIC] No matter how well the MG3 drives, it’s not a sports car. It doesn’t evoke feelings of misspent youth, and it’s not really in any way aspirational. The MG3 does have a party piece though. It is one pound under ten grand, though. If you add a sticker onto it, like this one has, that can push it over, but still, when you think about it, it’s quite a spacious car. There’s loads of room for people in the back and the booths commody as is for a car of this size. It looks good. It cuts a fine figure and it’s cheap. So the latest car from MG the sports car legend is, a cheap hatchback. This bodes well? All told the MG3’s not a bad car. It drives well enough, it’s good value for money, it’s even quite efficient. MG says you can manage near as dammit 50 mpg. But take a look at the B again. That is a proper MG. The 3, it’s not. [MUSIC]

How To Keep Running During The Hot Summer Months | Depauliaonline

Another thing is salt. When you sweat, you lose sodium. Youll see runners quite often with salt when theyre running a marathon. You lose a lot of sodium so if youre not in-taking more sodium than usual, youre risking altering the sodium levels of your body. Drinking just water will also do the same thing. A lot of runner hydrate days before their run, but that also starts to alter the sodium content of your body. You have to counteract that. I dont normally add salt to my food because a lot of the food we eat already contains enough sodium, but a few meals before a run I might add a little extra. And then theres sun screen of course because we dont want to end up with melanoma. Its the time to start putting sun screen on before a run. How about apparel? Whats best to wear during the summer? I recommend moisture wicking material (material that draws sweat to the skin and allows sweat to evaporate).

From “The Decision” to “The Return”: LeBron James comes home to Cleveland

I am just thinking about the fact that it would only take a couple of minutes, maximum, for people to do this and obviously, they can save themselves a world of heartache and worse just by doing this before they head out on the road. Jim, thanks so much for your time. Jim Travers: Mark, thank you very much for having me. Mark Hamrick: Jim Travers. He’s associate editor with Consumer Reports. He spoke with us from his office in Yonkers, New York. (TRANSITION) Our second segment is on car leases. If you watch television much at all, you can’t escape the commercials. Announcer in commercial: You have your holiday traditions. We have ours. See your Honda dealer today for special leasing or low financing on a new Honda. (music fades) Mark Hamrick: We’re not pitching Honda, per se. But that is an example of the kind of ads you’ll hear looking to turn consumers’ heads, urging them to lease a new car. Our resident expert on all things automotive is Bankrate’s Tara Baukus Mello. I asked her whether, in fact, leases are catching on. Tara Baukus Mello: Well, leases have increased in popularity over the last few years. There had been a decline, and they are more popular now. We are starting to see automakers offer a lot of those lease specials you see in advertisements. So, I think that is helping to increase the interest in leasing. Of course, the economy is turning, and people are more interested in getting into new vehicles, whether they are purchasing or leasing them. So, that is increasing the interest in leasing as well. Mark Hamrick: My sense is that you can drive a car of a certain quality at a lower monthly price point using the lease than you would if you went through a traditional financing arrangement, and that’s not to really address the issue of whether it is good economics or works well for everybody.
