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 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.…
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.…
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.…
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.…
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.…
In this video, you will learn how automobile companies are making the transition to producing a lot more fuel-efficient vehicles. CEO, Jack W. Plunkett, guides you through the trends that are going to take over one of the world’s most influential industries.
00:00:46,400 – 00:00:51,390
The problem is that within the United States, the industry is forced to make
00:00:51,390 – 00:00:57,440
more investment than it wants to in small highly fuel-efficient cars because
00:00:57,440 – 00:01:03,620
as the years go by, the C-A-F-E, or the required average fuel efficiency rate for each
00:01:03,620 – 00:01:07,689
manufacturer gets higher and higher. Pretty soon, automakers are gonna have
00:01:07,689 – 00:01:12,670
to post more than 50 miles per gallon average per automobile. Now that’s gonna be
00:01:12,670 – 00:01:17,929
hard to do. It’s going to take a lot of engineering. It also takes away from their investments in big
00:01:17,929 – 00:01:23,560
gas-guzzling vehicles. In Europe, automakers are pretty well focused on
00:01:23,560 – 00:01:28,530
selling more fuel-efficient vehicles because fuel prices in Europe are always
00:01:28,530 – 00:01:33,859
so high, where fuel is taxed at a much higher rate per gallon or per liter than it is
00:01:33,859 – 00:01:40,310
in the United States. Finally, in many places in Asia, automakers are working
00:01:40,310 – 00:01:46,689
under the problem that big luxury cars that might be imported, pay huge import tariffs.
00:01:46,689 – 00:01:51,709
While their local manufacturing is more focused for instance in China on smaller
00:01:51,709 – 00:01:54,509
lighter cars and vans. Today,
00:01:54,509 – 00:01:59,450
car-makers are more than ever focused on efficiency, which to them means optimum
00:01:59,450 – 00:02:06,380
lean production, which means relying more and more on their outsourced makers of
00:02:06,380 – 00:02:11,720
parts, components, and assemblies, which the automaker’s then bring into their
00:02:11,720 – 00:02:15,819
own factories and assemble as much as manufacture. They want to rely on
00:03:03,549 – 00:03:08,510
Mexico is absolutely hot in this regard. What’s the long-term future of the
00:03:08,510 – 00:03:12,430
automobile industry? At one time, analysts were thinking of as many as
00:03:12,430 – 00:03:17,939
three billion cars and light trucks on the planet by 2050. Roughly three times
00:03:17,939 – 00:03:25,099
today’s rate. However, the sharing economy may well put a hold on that thought as consumers
00:03:25,099 – 00:03:29,579
around the world more and more are using everything from bike sharing to car sharing
00:03:29,579 – 00:03:35,240
services like Zipcar; eliminating to some extent the need for personally owned
00:03:35,240 – 00:03:40,460
automobiles. Other things for the future that must be considered, are natural
00:03:40,460 – 00:03:44,970
gas-powered vehicles with the world awash in natural gas, particularly in
00:03:44,970 – 00:03:49,330
North America. There will be more reliance on using natural gas for big
00:03:49,330 – 00:03:54,680
transportation, at least things like buses and long range trucks. What about
00:03:54,680 – 00:03:59,190
electric cars? All-electric things like Tesla and hybrid cars like the Prius
00:03:59,190 – 00:04:04,660
still represent a very, very …
The Birth of the Company
After years of successfully importing French vehicles to Italy, Cesare Isotta and Vincenzo Fraschini created the Isotta Fraschini Company in 1902. Their elegantly designed automobiles were popular with rich clientele in the rapidly evolving world-wide automobile market. Their creations were reliable, stylish, and quick. An Isotta Fraschini car won the t Targa Florio in 1908.
When Isotta Fraschini introduced the Tipo 8 in 1919, the firm had already established itself as the premier builder of luxury automobiles in Italy. Since the dawn of motoring, Isotta Fraschini had offered some of the most pioneering and prestigious examples of the automobile, and the new Tipo 8 would live up to its proud lineage. The Tipo 8 was, the first “production” inline eight-cylinder engine, a design that would the standard for high-performance luxury automobiles of the Classic Era.
In 1912 the Isotta Fraschini Company introduced a straight eight-cylinder engine but it would not go into production until 1919 after World War I when the company built aero engines. The eight-cylinder engine powered the Tipo 8, making it the first straight-eight cylinder engine to go into production. The 5.9-liter capacity engine could of produce 100 horsepower, an most noteworthy accomplishment at the time.
In the Twenties
The grand scale of the Tipo 8 was less essential by the 1920s, when advancements in engineering ensured that a smaller engines were capable of acceptable performance. Nevertheless, in cultivating its image as an exclusive builder of high-end luxury cars, Isotta Fraschini sought to maintain the massive size of its engines and chassis as well as the extravagant coachbuilt bodies to appeal to its very wealthy clientele. A major contributor to the long, stately lines of Isotta Fraschinis was the Tipo 8 chassis itself, with its impressive straight eight necessitating an exceptionally long hood. The coachwork near the scuttle was often aligned with the sizeable radiator, further contributing to the imposing lines and immense stature of the car. The cars were also highly stylized throughout, with many coachbuilders playing up the grand chassis with delightful touches such as intricately detailed brightwork, the finest auxiliary accessories available and bespoke options.
In 1924, the Tipo 8 chassis underwent a thorough redesign that improved the overall performance, created a more comfortable ride and helped to facilitate the larger, heavier bodies that were becoming increasingly fashionable by the mid 1920s. Engine capacity was increased to 7.3 liters, giving the vehicle between 110 and 120 horsepower depending on the configuration. The updated design was soon dubbed the Tipo 8A. The standard model sat atop a 145 inch wheelbase while a sportier version was fitted with a 134 inch wheelbase.
The North American market was especially important to Isotta Fraschini as many Americans were keen on cars that offered impressive outright performance yet still retained the ability to cruise effortlessly and majestically in the greatest of style. Isotta Fraschini built grand, dignified touring cars that could …
In order to better understand how to protect your car from car theft, and in order to get a better idea of which cars will be stolen, it is important to understand the top five reasons that cars might be stolen. These are the five biggest reasons a person might steal your car.
Joyriding is something that is referred to sometimes as a prank, but it really does happen. This happens because a person sees a car and wants to drive around in it. They steal it with no other purpose other than to simply ride around in the car. These are cars that are stolen and usually recovered within a day or two in the same general area that they were stolen. Most of the cars that are stolen for joyrides are damaged, because the thief doesn’t care what happens to the car. Most of the time, cars that are stolen for joyriding are chosen because the owner has left the keys in the car, or has left the door switch in an unlocked position.
The second reason that cars are stolen is simple – the thief needs to get from one place to another. They need to go somewhere, and have to have a car to do that. Most of the time, they leave the car wherever their destination was. Sometimes, the car is wrecked and often there are parts stolen from it, but the biggest reason to take the car in the first place was to simply get where they were going. Thieves choose these cars in the same way – they were left with the keys in the ignition, or in a way that is very easy to steal.
Sometimes, a car is stolen so that other crimes can be committed. This happens when someone steals a car to get away from the scene of a crime that just happened, like a robbery. However it can also be done to get to a different crime, like a burglary or drug crime. Most of the time the stolen vehicle is abandoned when the crime is finished, but a lot of the time it is damaged or wrecked in the process. These cars are often stolen in places where there is a lot of crime.
Sometimes, a car is stolen for the parts. This happens when a car is hotwired and stolen, and the radio, or parts of the engine are taken out before the car is abandoned or found. Sometimes, the thieves have one or two main items in mind, and sometimes they strip whatever they can out of the car before someone finds it.
The last type of car theft is commercial theft. Unlike the cars that are stolen to strip the parts, these cars are stolen to be resold. Body shops will take in stolen cars, file off serial numbers and change the look of the car and then resell them. These are the cars that are in …
