A Luxury Apartment Close to the College

My husband applied for a job at Georgia Tech, and we were both extremely excited when he got it. It did mean we had to move from Maine to Georgia, but this was something I was eagerly looking forward to. I knew we did not have a lot of time to do this since they wanted him to start immediately. That is just one of the advantages of living in an apartment, because we didn’t have to deal with selling a house. I did a search for Midtown West apartments in Atlanta because I wanted to get the process started as quickly as possible.

I wanted to get an apartment that is close to his new job because neither one of us wanted him to have a long commute time. I was very fortunate in finding the 935M apartments on my first try. These are very chic apartments that are nicer than what I thought they would be.…

I Found a New Website That is Fun to Read

I like to learn new things. I like trivia, health tips, food ideas and scientific tidbits of information. Some of the stuff I use in daily life. Some of it is just knowing things to bring up in conversation. I pick up a lot of tips, tricks and trends at Infoboil. It is a really interesting website. It is a website that has panels to choose from that provides info on just about any subject. I saw one this morning about a vegetarian burger that looks like real meat. It is supposed to taste like meat too. Our current protein system is not really sustainable for the number of people on earth, so this could be a viable and tasty alternative.

There is a ton of information like that at the Infoboil website. I admit to spending a little too much time reading tips, tricks and trends at Infoboil. You know how you spend too much time on your social media pages and then feel like you just wasted a big chunk of time? Well, if you hang around reading stuff at Infoboil, you don’t feel like you wasted time. You actually learn stuff.…

Picking a Better Limo Company for a Fun, Clean and Comfortable Ride

You can use a party bus to get you and your group from one place to another such as going to a concert or game. However, you can also use one as a rolling party. You pick a route and your party is contained on the bus and just stays on the move. I would suggest you get the big bus from Diamond Party Bus in Toronto if you are going to do that. It is the one with the bathroom in it. You know that a bathroom is needed for any sort of party. The nice thing about a party bus is that when you rent one it comes with a professional driver, and it is cleaned to feel like you are the first customer to use it.

I have seen some limo companies that do not take excellent care of their fleet. You really need to rent from a place that takes pride in their fleet of limos whether the limo is a big sedan, SUV, stretch limo or a party bus.…

Making My Party Bus Dream a Reality

People take buses all the time. Some people use their smartphones while the riding on the bus. Other people read the newspaper. Other people take in the scenery and daydream. That’s what I love to do while I’m riding the bus. Last night on the way home from work, I found myself daydreaming about being on a party bus rather than the regular city bus. In my daydream, a stranger handed me a business card that had visite our party buses printed on it. I remember that phrase so vividly, because it reminded me of the way some words are spelled differently in Toronto.

My vision stuck with me when I got home. I immediately went online and started looking at party buses in the area.…

Get the Look You Want and Stop Worrying About the Rest

I am happy to have a pretty face. Seriously, I never take it for granted. I’m not being vain. I have smooth skin, a deep brown color to my eyes and good symmetry. Plus, I have great teeth. However, the girls in my family all have very short and thin eyelashes. And all of us have tried various things to get them to look longer and fuller. I have tried every mascara and even tried false eyelashes. I heard about how I could buy Careprost online and how it helps to grow longer and thicker eyelashes.

When you first started to read this, I imagine you might have thought me to be a bit arrogant saying I have a pretty face. Then you saw I have an issue with my looks that troubles me. I say that to point out that I think that all of us girls have things we like and do not like about our looks.…

Started to Look for a House

I have decided that I am going to look for a house, but of necessity it would have to be a small one. Of course this makes a good bit of sense for me, since I could get up the down payment for a small house, especially if it was not in perfect shape. At any rate I realize that this is not that simple of a process and I wonder whether or not you need to enlist the services of a realtor for Denver to make it simpler. Obviously that is going to cost you some money, but if someone really knows what they are doing that is going to make the whole thing a lot easier and in theory they might save you a bit of money. In fact you know that they are going to want to come out of the process with a profit, this is America and we believe in Capitalism with a big C.

At any rate I have decided that renting is just a big waste of money. All of the apartments I see on the market are wildly overpriced to start with.…

MINI E Electric P0047903

MINI E Electric P0047903

BMW Group will present the new, electrically-powered MINI E to the global media for the first time at the Los Angeles Auto Show on 19/20 November 2008. 500 MINI E vehicles will then be shipped to the US states of California, New York and New Jersey for testing with private and corporate customers.
The development of the MINI E underlines BMW Group’s commitment to reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions in road traffic, without compromise to the driving experience. The 500 cars bound for North America will offer BMW Group the opportunity to evaluate ownership potential for vehicles supplied with an electric power supply. BMW Group aims to begin series production in the medium term of all-electric vehicles as part of the company’s Number ONE strategy.

The cars will be delivered to customers on a one-year lease with an extension option. Monthly lease installments will cover any required technical service including all necessary maintenance and the replacement of wearing parts. At the end of the lease, all of the automobiles belonging to the project will be returned to the BMW Group’s engineering fleet where they will be subjected to comparative tests.

MINI E specification and performance
The MINI E’s electric drive train produces a peak torque of 220 Nm, and power is delivered to the front wheels via a single-stage helical gearbox. This unique engine and transmission arrangement powers the MINI E seamlessly to 62 mph in 8.5 seconds and on to an electronically-limited top speed of 95 mph.

Based on the current MINI Hatch, the car will initially be available as a two-seater. The space normally inhabited by rear passengers is reserved for a lithium-ion battery.

When in use in the zero-emissions MINI, the battery unit combines high output with ample storage capacity and remarkable power output. The lithium-ion storage unit will have a maximum capacity of 35 kilowatt hours (kWh) and transmit energy to the electric motor as direct current at a nominal 380 volts. The rechargeable battery is made up of 5,088 cells grouped into 48 modules. These modules are packaged into three battery elements that are compactly arranged inside the MINI E.

The energy storage unit’s basic components are based on technologies proven in power supply units for mobile phones and portable computers. The MINI E’s lithium-ion battery can be plugged into all standard power outlets. Its charge time is strongly dependent on the voltage and amperage of the electricity flowing through the grid. In the USA, users can recharge a battery that has been completely drained within a very short period of time using a wallbox that will be supplied as standard with every MINI E.

The wallbox will be installed in the customer’s garage, enable higher amperage, and thus provide for extremely short charging times. Wallboxes fully recharge batteries in just two-and-a-half hours. Only lockable garages or similar buildings will qualify as power stations for the MINI E.

Driven by electricity: zero emissions at minimal cost
A full recharge draws a maximum of 28 …

Elements of the Automobile: Running Gear & Differential ~ 1920 Bray Pictures Corp



Auto Mechanics playlist:

“Silent film that looks at the mechanics behind an automobile’s differential and running gear.”

Public domain film from the Library of Congress Prelinger Archives, slightly cropped to remove uneven edges, with the aspect ratio corrected, and one-pass brightness-contrast-color correction & mild video noise reduction applied.

The film was silent. I have added music created by myself using the Reaper Digital Audio Workstation and the Independence and Proteus VX VST instrument plugins.

A car is a wheeled, self-powered motor vehicle used for transportation and a product of the automotive industry. Most definitions of the term specify that cars are designed to run primarily on roads, to have seating for one to eight people, to typically have four wheels with tyres, and to be constructed principally for the transport of people rather than goods. The year 1886 is regarded as the birth year of the modern car. In that year, German inventor Karl Benz built the Benz Patent-Motorwagen. Cars did not become widely available until the early 20th century. One of the first cars that was accessible to the masses was the 1908 Model T, an American car manufactured by the Ford Motor Company. Cars were rapidly adopted in the United States of America, where they replaced animal-drawn carriages and carts, but took much longer to be accepted in Western Europe and other parts of the world.

Cars are equipped with controls used for driving, parking, passenger comfort and safety, and controlling a variety of lights. Over the decades, additional features and controls have been added to vehicles, making them progressively more complex. Examples include rear reversing cameras, air conditioning, navigation systems, and in car entertainment. Most cars in use in the 2010s are propelled by an internal combustion engine, fueled by deflagration of gasoline (also known as petrol) or diesel. Both fuels cause air pollution and are also blamed for contributing to climate change and global warming. Vehicles using alternative fuels such as ethanol flexible-fuel vehicles and natural gas vehicles are also gaining popularity in some countries. Electric cars, which were invented early in the history of the car, began to become commercially available in 2008.

There are costs and benefits to car use. The costs of car usage include the cost of: acquiring the vehicle, interest payments (if the car is financed), repairs and auto maintenance, fuel, depreciation, driving time, parking fees, taxes, and insurance. The costs to society of car use include: maintaining roads, land use, road congestion, air pollution, public health, health care, and disposing of the vehicle at the end of its life. Road traffic accidents are the largest cause of injury-related deaths worldwide.

The benefits may include on-demand transportation, mobility, independence, and convenience. The societal benefits may include: economic benefits, such as job and wealth creation from car production, sales and maintenance, transportation provision, society well-being derived from leisure and travel opportunities, and revenue generation from the tax opportunities. The ability for humans to move flexibly from place to place has far-reaching implications …
