hey, so something like this was done in the past, but would anyone be interested in a group that gives you a prompt every day and you have to write a song for that prompt? it was done in november and called "notevember" but we could do something like that during the summer, since more people are active. does this sound good to anyone?

My first real piece of music, please critique!

Hey guys!

I've been composing music for about a year now, but I've learned a ton about theory and composition in that time, and I've finally finished a piece of music that I can say I really understand. Unlike most of my other compositions in the past, which were mostly just random improvisations, every note in this piece was meticulously chosen to be there. Because of this, I'd really appreciate some critique.

Enjoy!

Safety Checklist to Follow Before Buying a Second Hand Car

  
Safety Checklist to Follow Before Buying a Second Hand Car 
When you shop for a used vehicle, it is essential that you conduct proper research. It is more convenient to research today that ever, due to the availability of online resources such as consumer forums and car reviews. It is important to make safe decisions when you are buying a car, so as to be assured of your safety for the years to come. When you have got a second hand vehicle that you want, you need to follow this safety checklist to ensure that you get a safe second hand car. 
Know what the NHTA and IIHS has to say
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) oversee the safety of automobiles in the nation. Both organizations publish reports and reviews. They carry out various kinds of crash tests, and make use of varied criteria for rating cars. Look for a vehicle having the approval of IIHS and NHTA.
Inspect whether there have been open recalls
Neither private sellers nor car dealers have a legal obligation to inform you whether or not a vehicle is subject to recall. In such cases, you have to be mindful as a buyer. You can check the website of NHTSA to know about this. It is definitely important to get a PPSR Report to get some preliminary information. 
Get guidance from Kelley and Edmunds
Both guides can offer you a wide variety of information about used vehicles, whether it comes to safety ratings or reviews or the actual values of cars. It can let you avail the most appropriate car for your needs, whether in terms of your budget or safety. 
Know about the standard safety equipment 
The safety equipments in older vehicles are not the same as in case of newer cars. Conduct research on when some features became standard, such as electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes and airbags. Some safety features would keep you safe on the road, as well as reduce your vehicle insurance costs. 
Look at foreign and older cars closely
Given that safety standards have evolved over time, you have to look carefully at older vehicles and any car that is made outside North America. They might not satisfy specific EPA standards or might lack security features that are presently needed by law. 
Check the tires
Before you purchase a used vehicle, it is important that you always inspect the tires. Although the tires need to be in proper condition for driving, that is not the case always. Other than checking whether there is standard wear, check whether any of the tire edges has tread wear. If that is the case, it might indicate that the wheels are not properly aligned. In case there is erratic wear in the tires, check the suspension or shock absorbers of the car. 
Trust your gut feeling 
Your instincts can be your best guide. Once you have reviewed all other things on the checklist, carry out a “gut check.” In case you feel that something is not right with the second hand vehicle of your choice, it is better that you walk away.
