Winter tires vs. summer tires: What should I use?
In the last cold snap did you skid on the ice or snow or find yourself unable to stop? Losing control of your car can be incredibly scary and very dangerous.
You can improve your driving performance and safety by switching to winter tires this season.
Remember, at cool temperatures, summer tires are less effective on all types of road surfaces. Winter tires are made of a special rubber compound suited to these low temperatures and, unlike summer tires, they do not harden in the cold, which increases their handling and grip. Winter tires can shorten braking distances by up to 50 per cent. These tires are not just for driving in the snow and ice - they're designed for conditions such as damp and wet roads.
Contrary to popular belief, winter tires do not wear more quickly than summer tires so make sure you fit them early to enjoy maximum benefits. It is also recommended that you fit four winter tires for optimum safety.

Zumba with J-Rose
What is Zumba and what benefits does it offer?
When people hear about Zumba fitness classes, one of their first questions is, "What are the benefits?" The bottom line about any kind of fitness or exercise is that you get out of it what you put into it. Whether you choose to run on the treadmill, the track or the cardio room, you must stick with it to see results. Fortunately, most people find Zumba easier to stick with than your typical exercise. But that's not the only reason to choose this exciting new workout.
If you're the type of person who prefers cardio to weightlifting, Zumba may be the perfect answer. Many of the dance moves are specifically designed to mimic the effects of traditional exercises, such as the squat and the lunge, ensuring you get the maximum benefit from a class.
Everyone is welcome, from beginners to intermediate and advanced fitness/dance/fitness levels, ages 12 and up. Zumba is famous for considering everyone the same during class. Egos are left at the door, because we're all here to experience fitness in a fun and comfortable way so that everyone leaves the class feeling great!
Besides, Zumba is easy for everyone to follow. The instructor breaks down the steps before/after each song routine to help participants grasp the styles of dance, such as merengue, salsa, cumbia and reggaeton.
These are but a few of the reasons people have started enjoying Zumba fitness. Truro residents can look to Zumba with J-Rose for the best Zumba classes in the area. We've got classes for beginners as well as expert level Zumba enthusiasts. Give us a call today or visit online (www.facebook.com/ZumbaWithJRose) and you too can experience the benefits of Zumba.

How to choose the right paper for your printing needs?
There isn't a "single" paper that fits every project you can have printed. Every project has a paper type that's often used because it's standard for a particular outcome.
A rack card is narrow and tall and needs rigidity, so a thicker card stock is ideal. A tri-fold brochure has three folds, giving it more rigidity so it can be printed on a thinner paper.
If the paper is going to be folded, it will need to be scored (creased) to create the folds. Scoring has a different effect on different paper types. The correct selection will score smoothly with no cracking of the paper.
If it's a business card then "card stock" is the norm. Card stock can be coated (glossy or matte) or non-coated. If you want to be able to write on that card you may want to select a non-coated stock. You could also have paper that's coated on one side and not on the other.
For a brochure often the outer cover is thicker while the pages inside are thinner.
There are also specialty papers you may choose. Some of these are recycled and some have little specs in it, also known as fleck. There's paper that's very thin or transparent so your print project shows through from underneath. Understanding how your printed material will be used or displayed and any special needs is the first step to proper paper selection. We're here to offer suggestions based on our knowledge of different papers and our many years of experience. Come by and visit our knowledgeable staff at the UPS Store and we can discuss your project today. 902-895-7225
