NRMA Insurance Research Finds Drivers Are Losing Their Cool At School

(PRWEB) April 24, 2010

Car Insurance provider, NRMA Insurance is urging all NSW drivers to keep their cool when school goes back this week, after research reveals that almost 40 per cent of drivers are getting stressed when dropping off or collecting their children from school*.

The insurer also found that one in four drivers admitted to ignoring parking signs or rules when dropping off or picking up kids from school.

NRMA Car Insurance spokesperson Emily Gatt said we encourage all drivers to stay calm and follow the rules when in school drop-off zones.

We understand that everyone leads busy lives, which often means we can run late, however drivers should still make childrens safety a priority and be alert to the increased activity around schools.

Dropping children at school can be a stressful experience – there is often traffic congestion which can lead to drivers being distracted and frustrated.

Our research also showed us that 65 per cent of people get stressed about the behaviour of other parents and drivers in school drop-off zones.

More and more parents and carers drive kids to and from school rather than the child walking so there are a number of cars in the drop-off zones.

So we urge all drivers to follow the rules and keep their stress levels down when doing the school run for the safety of the children and their own benefit, Ms Gatt said.

[NRMA Car Insurance] some tips to drivers:

Try and leave home early to avoid the peak school drop-off and collection time;
Consider car pooling with other drivers to avoid doing the school run five days a week;
If you have the time, perhaps park away from the school and walk the child;
If youre caught in traffic remember to take a deep breath, sit back and enjoy the time getting frustrated can affect your ability to concentrate on the road.

International Fitness Model Jennifer Nicole Lee Defends Her WBFF Miss Bikini 2 Time Championship by Going for a Three-Peat

Miami, FL (PRWEB) July 20, 2010

After her 2 hour training session, we headed back to her office where the first thing she did was prepare a BSN Lean Dessert Protein shake, made with water of course, Banana Cream being her favorite flavor.

With so much on my mind, from wanting to know how she handles the pressure, the public scrutiny, and how she also manages to take care of her “domestic” wifely duties as a mom, I just start out our interview by asking “So JNL, what is the hardest part about training for your third WBFF Miss Bikini Diva”. Always on her toes and keeping you guessing, she answered “The hardest part is picking out the dress!” I was baffled, as just witnessing her draining training session, I guessed it would of been that. But nope…She went onto say “You see, since I am in a constant flow of TV, appearances, and photo shoots, my team and I have kept my training and nutrition dialed in, so I am always camera ready. So my physique is pretty much 99.9% there. We just have some tweaking to do. I’m grateful for my coach “Wicked Willie” who never lets me give up or give in during my workouts. He is THE best. And really the hard part of my career is having to speak for one hour straight while exercising, sweating under the hot lights, trying to look pretty, and presentable to over 100 million households and take live calls on live shopping networks-now that’s a REAL challenge.”

Well, getting back to the dress issue: “So many couture one of a kind dresses have been sent to my office from a long list of designers. Going through them all is a job in itself, one that I’m grateful for. I just want to thank all who have taken the time to ship me these dresses with hopes that I will wear it on stage. The outpouring of support has been enormous.” With only weeks to go, JNL has her eye on the big WBFF Miss Bikini Diva prize. But this show is extremely important for a bevy or reasons. She hasn’t officially stated her retirement from competing, but from what she has stated in other interviews, this seems to be her last and final show.

With JNL having to jot off to pick up her sons from camp, switching back into “mommy” mode as she says, I had the chance to dial up some of her close inner circle camp members. Nadine is her close friend who handles the bulk of her publicity. She confirmed my feelings about JNL by stating “I have never met someone as passionate about winning a show. She has put her heart and soul into this. If she doesn’t win, something would not be right-and something would be very off-JNL has the heart of gold and the winning spirit of a warrior. She will take this crown home-yes, for a third and final time…”

Interviewing “Wicked Willie” was as hard as watching JNL train, as he is direct and a solid man of little words. When asked about JNL and her pre-training regiment “I really don’t know why JNL is competing, as she already has two titles under her belt, but it’s in her blood, and she has a champion spirit to match. Our training is right on spot, and she eats up every workout like it’s her last. She is on fire, and her stellar unmatchable and unbeatable body will show it on the stage come September.”

Marli, who is JNL’s best friend and also Executive Assistant, was as open as a book when asked about JNL. She could not stop speaking how “JNL is the athlete of the century” in her thick Brazilian accent. She went on to say “JNL is the epitome of what a strong, sexy woman’s body should look like, yet she also has the face to match.” I could understand what Marli was leading too, as it is a boggle that some women might have the body, but not the face or hair, or long legs, or height to match. “Jennifer is tall, lean, sleek and it like her nickname, La Tigra, graceful like a wild cat who knows how to walk and present her highly trained physique”

Berns, celebrity designer of all JNL’s award winning suits, was at no shortage for words. “JNL is someone who will call me even to design a suit just for her calendar, or just because she had a vision of a dream bikini. We have a kindred spirit friendship, and this competition suit will show it. We have been in deep collaboration since last year, perfecting the cuts, choosing the right sized and colored stones, and beyond.

After JNL got back from her carpool pick up at her sons camp, we had a chance to wrap up in her office. After declining a snack of hard boiled eggs, I watched her eat about 6 in a row, back to back, as I asked her the last questions that popped up. “JNL, other fitness models I interview just want their bodies to be a subject of envy. But rather what I notice with you is that you are truly passionate about helping others to be fit as well. What is it that drives you to help others?” In closing JNL stated “when I started my weight loss transformation, I didn’t have a blueprint, or a success model to follow, I had to create it myself. It was in that dark area where I had no one to turn to that I almost gave up and gave in. I am so happy that I didn’t, so I am making it a point to show others that there is a way, and here is the way, and I did it-and they can do it too”
