W ith its reputation for comfort, performance and efficiency, GMC Acadia has remained a popular choice since it was introduced as the brand’s first crossover SUV in 2007. Its luxury-minded Denali model, which came to market in mid-2010, has widened this midsize crossover’s appeal to customers looking for a high level of style, power and functionality. In 2014, the Acadia focuses on safety with the addition of Forward Collision Alert and Lane Departure Warning, crash-avoidance systems that use a camera and sensors to help detect when the driver is getting too close to a vehicle ahead, or when the vehicle enters another lane without the use of a turn signal. The systems alert the driver with visual cues on the dashboard, as well as audible signals. They complement Side Blind Zone Alert and Cross Traffic Alert, which were added in 2013. The camera technology was recently named a “Top Ten Tech Breakthrough of 2012” by Popular Mechanics. The new model year also brings an additional convenience feature: two charging-only USB ports on the rear of the center console to power up electronics ...

Chart time frames Chart types 1 The X axis runs horizontally along the bottom of the chart providing a timeline for everything that has happened on the chart. The most recent price action is shown on the right side of the chart and the most distant price action is shown on the left side of the chart. CHART SETUP Let’s start from the very beginning and take a look at how a forex price chart is set up. Once you understand the basics, you will be much more successful applying more advanced concepts to your technical analysis. The Y axis runs vertically along the right side of the chart providing a price scale for the price movement on the chart. Lower prices are shown toward the bottom of the chart and higher prices are shown toward the top of the chart. Forex price charts are built on two axes—the X axis (horizontal axis) and the Y axis (vertical axis). When you put the two axes together, you can see at what price a currency pair was trading at a particular time in the past. For example, you can see that the EUR/USD was trading at 1.4000 on 20 September 2007. 2 CHART TIME FRAMES Saxo Bank forex charts give you the ability to analyze the price movement of your favorite currency pair anywhere from a minute-by-minute basis to a month-by-month basis. You have the flexibility to choose which time frame is best for you. If you are a shorter-term trader, you will want to use shorter time frames for your charts. If you are a longer-term trader, you will want to use longer time frames for your charts. For example, a trader who is looking to quickly jump in and out of trades for 10- to 20-pip profits would most likely want to be watching a 1-minute or a 5-minute chart. A trader who is looking to hold onto trades for a longer period of time to take advantage of larger price moves would most likely want to be watching an hourly or a daily chart. Some traders even choose to use multiple time frames so they can see how the movement of a currency pair looks from various points of view. We will discuss this concept in detail in a later section. 3

Changing the sixth generation Corvette Oil Difficulty: 2 out of 5. Time required: Plan on about 1.5 hours taking your time. Tools required: Ramps, Floor jack, Jack stand(s), 13mm wrench or socket, Oil filter wrench, lifting puck, wheel stops, shop rag. Materials required: 1 compatible oil filter, 6 quarts of compatible oil. Capacities are 5.5 Quarts with a filter change for the non-Z51 and 6 quarts with a filter change on the cars with the RPO Z51. Recommended oil is Mobil 1 fully synthetic 5W-30 (GM spec 4718M). Recommended Oil filter is GM UPF44 (2005), UPF46 (2006) UPF48 (2007-2009) If you have access to a lift you can skip to step 6. If you are doing this at home without access to a lift continue to the photos below. Step 1. Get the car up in the air. I use a couple of 2x4’s and my rhino ramps. The 2x4’s will give enough clearance to get up on the Rhino ramps without deflecting the side air dams. Step 2. Get yourself a little more clearance on the driver’s side for easier access to the oil drain plug and filter. Once I have the car up on the ramps I take my floor jack and jacking puck and raise the drivers side further. Don’t forget to block the rear tires once you have the car up on the ramp. Step 3. Get yourself some extra room. Once the jack is in place and the car is up out of the way I will turn the ramp around so that you have easy access behind the tire. Step 4. Place a jack stand up front under the frame support and lower the car back down. Now that the car is lifted and safely supported you can begin the process of changing out the oil. Step 5. Place your oil pan under the drain plug. I like to use a piece of cardboard under the drain pan to collect any oil that may miss the pan during the process of removing the...
It’s hard to believe that it’s been just over half a decade since Apple announced the original iPhone. In that timespan, we’ve seen the mobile phone market twist itself inside out: Oleophobic touchscreens replaced miniature keyboards, lavish 3D worlds rivaling desktop game consoles overtook basic games like Snake, and cellular data—once a luxury—became the standard. We do so many things with our phones these days that it’s sometimes hard to fathom how far we’ve come. The iPhone 5 is the result of these developments in the last few years, and it’s stunning. It’s as speedy as a full-fledged computer, Apple has extended its screen size without making the device unwieldy, and it sports a gorgeous 8-megapixel camera. But if you look past all these improvements, you’ll see the same essential product that Steve Jobs unveiled in 2007. The iPhone still runs iOS, it still has just four buttons and a toggle switch, and its candybar shape still fits perfectly in your hand. Whether this is your fifth iPhone or your first, we want you to love your device. And that means putting your faith in it and in its software. Our iPhone 5 Superguide aims to answer your lingering questions. We detail how to set up your new iPhone and turn on iCloud and automatic backups, and we provide some nice starting tips. We also help you get to know iOS, Apple’s mobile operating system; walk you through each of your installed applications, along with how-tos and customization; and introduce you to some of the many great third-party apps out there. And if you run into problems, our troubleshooting guide should put you on the right track in no time. What you do with your iPhone from there—well, that’s entirely up to you. —Serenity Caldwell Boston, December 2012
