DID YOU KNOW (www.didyouknow.org)
It has been widely documented that sedentary activities such as TV viewing, computer use, video game playing, and even reading contribute to obesity and overall poor health. However, it seems that not all sedentary activities are equally harmful. According to a recent study monitoring both obese and normal weight children and their choices of sedentary activities, those who watched the most TV tended to have the highest blood pressure readings. Other activities, such as computer use, were not linked to similar blood pressure hikes. Experts believe that the elevated blood pressure levels may be the result of sleep disruptions as well as unhealthy snacking behaviors associated with TV viewing.
TIP OF THE DAY (www.ehow.com)
How to Check Radiator Hoses
Old radiator hoses or loose clamps can cause a coolant leak, which will lead to overheating and expensive repairs. Check hoses periodically and replace them if they're aged or leaking.
Walk around the front of the car. Find the hood latch. The hood latch is usually located at the front edge of the hood. Depress the latch. While depressing the latch, lift and open the hood.
Locate the radiator. It's always at the front of the car.
Locate the radiator hoses. Two hoses should be attached to the radiator: an upper hose at the top and a lower hose at the bottom.
With the engine cold, squeeze each hose. If the hose feels "crunchy" or brittle, it's old and needs replacing.
Check the clamps at either end of both hoses. If the hose is damp or wet at the clamp, tighten or replace the clamp. The clamps should be tight enough that the hose cannot be turned or moved.
Check the hose for cracks, tears, or frayed ends. If you find any, replace the hose.
Close the hood.
