It's easy to take for granted your car's ability to start up when you turn the key — until one day, it doesn't. Then, you're left with two options: Try to get a friend to come over and give you a jump, or call a mechanic for help. Both can cost you time and money, two things no one has available these days.
Turns out, there's another solution. You can invest in a portable car jump starter to keep around for the just-in-case. And, just for today, Amazon has slashed prices on top-rated Nexpow portable jump starters. Right now, you can save nearly 40 percent off these life-savers.
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And even those without Prime get free shipping on orders of $25 or more).

There's a lot to love about the Nexpow 2500A Car Battery Starter, like the fact that it can hold a charge for more than three months! It's able to easily start cars, motorcycles, watercraft, ATVs, lawnmowers, yachts, boat, pickups and snowmobiles. Once you need to recharge it, it'll be good to go again within just a few hours. This starter comes equipped with super bright LED light that works as an emergency flashlight with four modes: spotlight, strobe, SOS and a red and blue warning. It also features a quick-charge port that charges devices at 1.8 times the speed of a standard port. A five-star fan called this an "excellent buy," writing, "Within 30 seconds, I put the key in the ignition and it turned on. I removed the clamps and turned off the jump starter and removed the clamps. It’s so easy to use. As a woman who doesn’t know much about car issues, I used it and it worked."
Alex Cooper is preaching a "fake it till you make it" mentality when it comes to confidence, sharing in a recent interview that experiencing bullying and low self-esteem in her past has propelled her path into the spotlight. "When I was younger, I was so invested in having an outlet because I was severely bullied. My escape was going into my basement and picking up a movie camera and producing a music video or a short film. I found a lot of comfort in being able to express myself and feeling not judged," the host and producer of the Call Her Daddy podcast told the New York Times Magazine. "Creating content has always been a form of self-expression that has made me feel seen, that made me feel I am worthy and have something to show that I’m good at."
Whether kids are allowed to walk to the park alone or are left home without parental supervision, free-range parenting advocates say the parenting style is a way to build confidence in children. But is free-range parenting safe?
Howie Mandel believes that like physical fitness, mental health is a continuous “work in progress.”The 66-year-old host of Canada’s Got Talent has been outspoken about his struggles with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) since reaching his 40s. “I didn’t realize until really late in life how important [mental health treatment] was,” he tells Yahoo Life. “Up until that time, there wasn’t the title. I thought my struggle was my normal.”Mandel calls OCD “debilitating.”“What it is is these obtrusive thoughts ... you get so obsessed with them that you can’t move forward,” he shares. “You can’t show up. You can’t be productive. It’s mind-boggling.”An additional struggle, according to Mandel, is the way OCD patients convince themselves that their thoughts, no matter how false, are actually real. He admits to often having “negative and dark thoughts,” as well as being overly focused on rituals. “Touch the doorknob 10 times before you turn it to the left, otherwise somebody’s gonna die,” he says. “[OCD] will inhibit every aspect of your life.”Mandel also says he has been late to appointments because of obsessive handwashing, even though he knows he should stop. “I have too much of a compulsion to just keep going,” he says. “It feels like you’re losing your mind.”
