Associated obesity, dyslipidemia, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and type 2 diabetes conspire to shorten life spans, while hyperandrogenism with polycystic ovarian syndrome affect the quality of life and fertility of increasing numbers of women. Whereas a growing number of single genetic diseases affecting satiety or energy metabolism have been found to produce the clinical phenotype, strong familial occurrences, especially in racially prone groups such as those from the Indian subcontinent, or individuals of African, Hispanic, and American Indian descents, together with emerging genetic findings, are revealing the polygenetic nature of the syndrome. However, the strong lifestyle factors of excessive carbohydrate and fat consumption and lack of exercise are important keys to the phenotypic expression of the syndrome. The natural history includes small for gestational age birth...
First Parachute Rocket Experiment Experimenter - Professor L. Russo 1936 (January 31) At 5 PM on this date, America's first parachute rocket experiment was conducted at Newark Meadows. The rocket travelling a little over 100 yards burst and released a parachute to which a mail container holding 980 miniature covers and an American flag was attached. A fierce gale which was blowing at the time carried the parachute and mail east of Newark Bay where it eventually landed. On being posted the entire mailing was held up by Postal Officials who objected to the miniature rocket stamp and private postmark. After holding them for an unknown period, they were eventually released; "The rocket covers which were mailed January 31 have finally been released by the P.O. The clain is made that they were held up because of unmailability. Just what constitutes an unmailable thing, only the P.O. knows. It's one of those things they call a violation - which in the eyes of the department is equivalent to murder, but to others it's just the whim of some old geezer with nothing else to do except to make rules First Rocket Airplane Flight 1936 (February 23) On this date for the first time inhistory a rocket Airplane was fired at Greenwood Lake, New York. After 6 months of preparation the date of the flight was fixed for February 9th. Due to foul play by one of the mechanics the rockets could not be made to go off and the firing had to be postponed for a fortnight. The first plane which carried one-third of the mail took a steep climb into the air, then side-slipped and came down on the frozen lake. Then with its own power it slid along the ice for several hundred yards and gathered momentum to take to the air again,

The Vulcan Classics present a problem since they have numerous obstructions that hang below frame level that can interfere with the CenterStand's operation. Proper location of the CenterStand is critical to safe operation. Please read these instructions carefully and have someone help you to hold the bike until you are comfortable performing the lift yourself. Lifting the 1500/1600 To lift the front wheel of the 1500 the CenterStand must push up on the engine cases. This is quite all right as the engine is strong enough and the CenterStand's rubber Frame Guard will protect it from damage. Position the CenterStand so that it will push on the engine in the flat area between the front two case bolts/ribs and push down on the handle to perform the lift. This area isn't perfectly flat but should provide a stable enough platform for light service or cleaning. Lifting the rear wheel is a little bit trickier and you want to make sure you get it right the first time since the oil filter is in the lifting area and placing the CenterStand wrong could damage it. Locate the two frame lugs that hang below the frame and position the CenterStand so that it contacts these lugs at their front edge (This can be tricky since they're small but I got used to it real quick). Lift the bike using the normal procedure, when the lift is complete and done correctly the CenterStand should be wedged in between the frame lugs and the engine/trans case. This is a very stable lift and the bike won't go anywhere.
Social enterprise is a movement unified by a proposition: that we can change the world by changing the way we do business. This report was written by Frank Villeneuve-Smith and Charlotte Chung, with support from Celia Richardson, Nick Temple and Fran Gorman. Social enterprises are businesses trading for social and environmental purposes. Rather than maximising private profit, their aim is to generate profit to further their social and environmental goals. They want to make the world – or at least their community – a better place. The research was designed by Charlotte Chung and Ceri Jones, with support from Lys Coleman. The field work was carried out by BMG research. Social Enterprise UK would like to thank The Royal Bank of Scotland Group for their sponsorship of this report, and particularly, Sarah Wright for her support. We would like to thank Dai Powell of HCT Group for the generous ‘loan’ of Frank Villeneuve-Smith to work on the project. And thank you also to everyone at Social Enterprise UK, especially, Sam Simmons, Ólöf Jónsdóttir, Ruty Geva and Charlie Wigglesworth. We would like to thank the following organisations for sharing their contacts with us to take part in this survey – Co-operatives UK, National Housing Federation, Locality, Social Enterprise East of England, Social Firms UK, and UnLtd – as well as the many organisations who promoted this survey through their networks. We would also like to thank Fergus Lyon and Rob Baldock (Third Sector Research Centre) and David Floyd for their support. Finally, our thanks to the social enterprises that took time out of busy schedules to take part in this research and the social enterprises that spared the time to be photographed for the report – Belu, Bounce Back, Connection Crew, Elvis & Kresse and Ministry of Stories.

SELF-CANCELING TURN SIGNAL KIT General This kit is designed for use on the following motorcycles: MODEL FLTs FLHs FLHS's Softails FXWGs XLs FXEs FXRs FXRTs MODEL YEARS 1980 - 1988 (Includes FLHS 1987 - 1988) 1972 - 1984 1981 - 1984 1984 - 1990 1980 - 1986 1975 - 1990 1975 - 1985 1982 - 1990 1983 1/2 - 1990 NOTE This kit cannot be used on 1986 models that have the stock “latching type” turn signal switches. This kit contains the following components: QTY 3 1 2 2 1 1 6 1 DESCRIPTION Ring terminal Connector, male-to-male, spade, insulated Terminal, spade female Cable strap Module, turn signal Wire harness Connector, Scotchlok* Vinyl conduit, 3/8 in. inside diameter x 34 in. long Installation General (All Models) 1WARNING Module is designed to operate two lights and one indicator at one time. More than two lights will create an overload, causing the flashes to occur too fast to be seen. Making a turn with a constantly lit turn signal could confuse other motorists. Such confusion could result in an accident and personal injury. FLT Models (1980 - 1988) 1. Remove outer fairing on FLHTs. See applicable Service Manual for detailed instructions. FLT’s mounting location and flasher are accessible without removing headlight housing. 2. Connect wire harness to module at 10 pin/socket connector housings. NOTE On 1987 - 1988 FLHS models, mount the canceler module in a suitable location using cable straps or a bolt through mounting hole in module. 3. Use cable straps to secure turn signal module to right fork tube just above rubber fork stop. Ground black wire to front fork bracket with ring ter minal or spade connector on later models. 4. Route wires from module up to area of four-way flasher switch. Wires must be routed between top triple clamp and flasher bracket, not over the top of flasher bracket. 5. See Figure 2 (shows stock signal light circuit) and Figure 3 (shows kit connected in signal light circuit). Locate pink wire that connects to four-way flasher switch. Cut wire near switch. Connect with Scotchlok*, white/violet striped wire from module to pink wire going to four-way flasher switch. Connect with Scotchlok*, violet wire from module to remaining end of pink wire leading into main wiring harness and connected to left signal light switch.
1. Make sure the vehicle is on level ground. 6. Using oil resistant gloves, detach the oil filter and O-ring from the re-usable cap and dispose of properly. 2. Turn the engine off and wait a few minutes for the oil to drain into the oil pan. 3. Set the parking brake and ensure the gearshift is securely latched in P (Park) (automatic transmission) or 1st (First gear) (manual transmission). Important: To avoid engine damage, change the oil filter before draining the oil pan. This allows dirty oil in the filter housing to drain back into the oil pan. 4. Loosen the oil filter cap by using a 36mm socket and a ratchet (location #1) NOTE: Unscrewing the cap opens the oil filter drain and drains the oil from the oil filter housing into the crankcase. NOTE: Do not handle a hot oil filter with bare hands. Continuous contact with USED motor oil has caused cancer in laboratory mice. Protect you skin by washing with soap and water.
