  1. Scotland could become the first nation to ensure free universal access to pads and tampons source: https://edition.cnn.com/2020/02/27/europe/scotland-free-period-products-bill-trnd/index.html?utm_term=link&utm_source=twCNN&utm_medium=social&utm_content=2020-03-01T09%3A01%3A02 (CNN)Scotland has moved to become the first nation to make tampons and pads free. The Scottish parliament advanced legislation on Tuesday that would ensure free universal access to tampons, pads and other menstrual products, in a huge stride for the global movement against period poverty. The Period Products (Free Provision) Scotland Bill passed through the first stage with 112 votes in favor and one abstention. No one opposed the bill. "Women and girls are too often left behind in the political process," Monica Lennon, who introduced the bill last year, said during the debate. "This is a chance to put them first and do something that is truly groundbreaking on gender equality." Lennon also acknowledged transgender and non-binary people, adding that the bill was designed to be inclusive of everyone who menstruates. The bill now moves to the second stage, where members of the Scottish parliament can propose amendments before it is given final consideration in stage three. The bill aims to tackle period poverty, stigma around menstruation and the impact that periods have on education. "Menstruation is normal," Lennon said. "Free universal access to tampons, pads and reusable options should be normal too." One in 10 girls in the United Kingdom have been unable to afford period products, according to a 2017 survey from Plan International UK. The survey also found that nearly half of all girls aged 14 to 21 are embarrassed by their periods, while about half had missed an entire day of school because of them. "For some reason, period products are regarded by some as a luxury, a luxury for which women should be charged," Alison Johnstone, a member of parliament, said during debate. "Why is it in 2020 that toilet paper is seen as a necessity but period products aren't?" The Scottish government has made other efforts to tackle period poverty in the last few years. In 2018, the government announced that students in schools, colleges and universities across the countries would be able to access sanitary products for free, through a £5.2 million investment. In 2019, it allocated another £4 million to make period products available for free in libraries and recreational centers.

    Brake Pads

    Hi guys, Anyone can recommend where can I change my front brake pads? I believe they need to be replaced. My car is Honda Civic FD4. And my tyres are producing sounds when I drive at higher speed. Normally the sounds will come out when I drive above 80/90km/h. Is it because it needed to do tyre rotation or alignment? Please share the info if you know. Thank you so much

  5. Hi all, anyone here using the above mentioned? Any review to contribute? Good or bad reviews all welcome, thanks
  6. Hi all, Just curious since I am still inexperience in all these. On Singapore roads given that my ride is front and back brake disc, just how often are the brake pads changed. Cause I realized that driving on local road uses the brakes a lot due to constant traffic light stoppages, though I understand that how often it is changed depends on individual driving style, so hope everyone can share your experience with me so i have a rough idea. Thanks

    EBC Brake Pads.

    Hi Guys... I'm a newbie here .... Any idea where I can get EBC Green stuff brake pads ? Thanks man...
  10. for mid size toyota cars? any workshop to recommend? looking to change pads and maybe rotors. any brands of pads to recommend? want something grippy, Noise, dust, fast wear is ok. Had wanted to order from overseas but cannot be sure that it would fit.
  11. Is $400 reasonable for a pair of new brake pads plus rotor skimming due to uneven wear ?
  12. Need to change brake pads for my Altis soon. Normally go to Riverview in AMK for servicing, but am staying in Bt Batok. Don't feel like travelling all the way to AMK to change brake pads. Any workshop in the West area to recommend ? Am looking for original Toyota brake pads. Thanks in advanced.
  13. Anyone knows which workshop does this service and how much does it cost? The screeching is damn irritating.
  14. What brake pad can I change to on a 05 or 06 Vios. Left two yeas left but need to change coz I tried the car recently and the stopping is terrible. Will not vbe doing braided hose as that would be too much effort. Fluid have been changed a few times. I am suspecting brake pads, I have sprayed brake cleaner with no improvement. What pads can I buy? I hope to get some better pads and brake dust or rotor wear is fine.

    Sand-paper brake pads ????

    went to servo for my 22.5k oil change this morning. Brought my own c*rlube and paid for the filter + labour $42. The mech also top-up radiator coolant (with water, of course) and power-steering fluid ..... foc ...... Actually I was looking for Dennis also but he went out. So ended up speaking to Philip. Told him about my brake squealing @ low speed ~ 15kmh. Anyone encountered this b4 ? He told me that it would cost $60 labour charge for that service which include removing all 4 wheels. That's fine with me but what he said next ...... he'll sand-paper the brake pads ..... Thought sand-paper of brake pads and disc is a no-no .... ? any comments anyone ?
  16. as above , where can i buy ?
  17. http://www.channelnewsasia.com/stories/sin...1169304/1/.html I'm rather amazed why the enforcement officers can discover this... Just because it's a pirated taxi? What was the trigger to check the pads?
  18. My car is nearly 3 yrs 7 mths and have covered 115k. My car is serviced by agent from day 1 and they never said I need to change brake pads. Is there a time limit to change? My last servicing was early Jan. They tested my battery and the result was bad (something like 64%???) and was told to change. Till date I have not changed and nothing happened though there is sign that starting was not that strong as before. How long more can I tong?
  19. Feeling my brakes a soft nowadays. I wonder where I can change the brake pads? Do normal workshops change brake pads also? Last of all, how much to change the pads? Front are disk brakes and rear are drum brakes. Thanks!!!
  20. So on my E60 523i, I changed new brake pads recently but left the old rotors on, as they still had lots of life left. The problem was the squeal when driving slowly (not braking). I read up on this phenomenon and it appeared that the new pads were not sitting on the backing very well, because of dirt and dust over the years. And while this does not cause friction against the rotors, it is the vibration of the brake pads and the backing that causes harmonics and hence, these squeals. One of the methods recommended was to drive till 80 or 100 kmh and then brake violently till stop. Do it 5 times (or so they said) and the squeal will be gone cuz the new pads will be seated properly then. I tried it and it worked! No more squeal. There are other methods which require taking out the pads again, cleaning the back of the pads and the backing, and then greasing the back of the pads and putting duct tape on them etc but they were a waste of time I thought. This was the easiest and fastest way, but do it somewhere safe.
  21. As per topic.. Anyone using this type of brake pads for their ride?
