My GMC Acadia’s power liftgate (trunk) decided to come forcibly crashing down upon my head this morning. It opened with the key trunk release button just fine, however a few seconds later I heard a terrible noise and the whole thing came crashing down upon me. The liftgate then opened fully again, only to close again (normally) on it’s own.
My preschool aged twin boys saw the whole thing: the awful noise and my screams as the liftgate come crashing down on me. They are now terrified of the car and don’t want to ride in it.
A simple internet search revealed that this is a common problem and has been affectionately named “guillotine liftgate” on Acadia forums.
This is the video I took after I got out from under the dangerous liftgate and calmed my crying children. I have found that problems I experience with the car at home are often not repeatable at the dealership, so a video must always be made to document the problem.
If you own this car, please always be careful when getting things in and out if the trunk.

A power meter is a large single electric control panel which is responsible for measuring the total electric consumption of a building. Normally a switchboard meter can be accessible from the inside and from the outside of the building as well. An electric supply company normally has a device which reads the client’s energy consumption on a regular basis in order to be able to bill the client for the service.
The supplier company has the capability of sending a meter reader once a month to do a physical reading; however, the latest technology allows these companies to take the readings directly through their database and this is something which can be considered a very practical approach.
This equipment installation also includes the capability of better understanding and monitoring of the energy consumption in a specific area at a designated time during the day or during the month as well. This helps electrical suppliers to understand the different demands of their clients and how to cope with the supply in times of extremely hot or cold weather conditions and other similar periods. It also helps the consumers to understand their consumption. A sudden increase or decrease in meter readings should signify a definitive change in usage habits or a problem in delivery of electricity.
There are many different types of power meters; however, the most common ones are the electromechanical types that work on counting the revolutions of an aluminum disc which rotates at a speed proportional to the power.
There is also the electronic meter, which is basically doing the same measuring; however, it is displaying the results on an LCD display and it can transmit the reading to a remote place. These kinds of switchboard meters are also used quite frequently for recording load supplies as well, They are becoming the most commonly used types, since they function much more efficiently than others.
Having a meter that is able to send readings to the supply company is also recommended, because there are no issues of human error to alter accuracy. Although some customers that have exchanged the older meters for the newer technology might say their electric bills have increased, this should not be the case. It may be due to faulty wiring from the previous set-up and these customers should contact their supply company for a meter check-up to avoid any further problems.
There are different tariffs for different kinds of electricity consumption and the supplying companies try to make sure that those customers that do not come under the heavy consumption tariff get better benefits from them.

Near the proper amount of vitamins, minerals and nutrients, protein is also an essential element for developing a healthy diet and lifestyle. Even more, protein can highly improve your weight loss efforts and it is better that taking diet pills, weight loss supplements or harmful fat burners. Although people at first, when hearing about protein think about animal sources, there are different types of protein sources. The best thing you should do to get the needed protein amount while taking care of your cholesterol and fat intake is to choose a variety of food rich in protein and build a balanced diet plan. Serving as a critical building block for our bodys tissues and cells protein is an essential nutrient that we need for muscle building, healing and every function of our body.
Everyone should give the needed amount of protein to their body but in limited amounts, without overloading. The normal amount of protein intake per day for women is about 50 grams while this amount at men varies between 60 and 70 grams taken in as two or three servings. The majority of people eat more protein than necessary, usually 120 grams, which is high even at seniors, athletes or pregnant women who need more protein than an average adult.
Not all food acting like protein sources are healthy for you. Cholesterol and saturated fat found in many types of meat are those unhealthy factors, which are advisory to avoid; if you cannot eliminate them from your meal plan at least lower your daily intake. You can eat meat, but you have to choose the right type of it; for example, eating skinless chicken breast, which is high in protein instead of cholesterol and fat rich red meat, is a good start for a healthy diet plan. Hot dogs, cold cuts and steak should also be avoided, because these meats are also high in fat, cholesterol and salt.
There are some food types, which are not only high in protein but contain all the needed vitamins, minerals and nutrients you need for a healthy body and even weight loss. The best sources of protein are fish, soy, whole grain food, protein fortified pastas, dried peas, black beans, kidney beans, lentils and low fat yoghurt, cheese, milk and dairy products. So try and include these types of food into your daily plan and start living a healthy, protein and vitamin rich, cholesterol and fat low life.
