The latest 3.4 litre version of the Powertec RP V8 Doubled up Tom Sharp investigates a cost effective V8 racing engine on behalf of Powertec. It essentially consists of a pair of Hayabusa engines, arranged at a 72° bank angle, driving a common crankshaft and mounted to a dedicated dry-sumped crankcase. The result is a P keenly priced V8 engine that is very light, powerful and reliable. The having initially a 2.6 litre displacement, it had been commissioned by been joined by three other varieties (see Table 1), which demonstrates Radical Motorsport for installation into that company’s SR8 sports-racing just how much flexibility is in the base package. The numbers tell the car. Radical specialised in motorcycle-engined sports-racers and was story of commercial success well enough. Powertec have to date built keen to augment its popular four cylinder machines with a V8. a total of 110 RP engines (including 75 RPAs and 25 RPBs); volumes owertec Engineering’s innovative, Suzuki Hayabusa-based engine is now owned, manufactured and built by Powertec Engineering RP V8 engine was introduced in the UK at the Autosport from its base in Peterborough, England.

However, DOSSIER : POWERTEC RP V8 ENGINE RP V8 CAD image governs UK motorsport – they banned it on the grounds of it not being derived from a passenger-carrying vehicle. Horne’s solicitors eventually ensured the car received its required log book but the MSA made it clear that the RP was not welcome in rallying. Powertec’s original product portfolio plan had included a 2.0 litre ‘screamer’ version, but as Ted Hurrell explains customer demand drove the capacity in the opposite direction. “The screamer was originally conceived for use in 2.0 litre hillclimb and VdeV sportscar racing, however the VdeV regulations quickly changed to insist upon four cylinder car engines and our hillclimb customers went in the direction of the unlimited classes, which means increasing swept volume as far as possible to maximize torque. So only one 2.0 litre engine was built before that variant was then unfortunately the RP series only represents 20% of Powertec’s business; the majority revolves around building and tuning the Suzuki Hayabusa four cylinder shelved. “Those two examples, of the 2.5 and 2.0 litre engines go to engines for markets such as motorbike racing, low volume production...

On race day plan to arrive early and park in the designated areas only, please. We ask that excited parents DO NOT accompany their children around the course. Please respect competitor and spectator areas to avoid the risk of accidents. Transition Area Instructions After checking in for the event, proceed to the transition area. The transition area is where you make the "transition" from the swim to the bike and from the bike to the run. This is where you will keep your gear for the changeover between sports. Find your space number. You can rack your child’s bike by either hooking the seat over the top rail of the bike rack or by hooking the handlebars/brake levers over the top rail. The transition area Coordinator may ask everyone to rack bikes a certain way in order to optimize available space. Parents will be allowed in the transition area before and after the race in order to help their child set up. Once the race begins, parents will not be allowed into the transition area. Volunteers will be available to assist children that need help finding their spot, putting their dry shoes on their wet feet, etc. Once your bike is racked, you can place the race gear (shoes, shirt, socks, hat, bike helmet) next to it but please limit gear to what is required to race. Taking too much space may result in one of our volunteers asking you to take all that extra stuff out of the t-zone in order to ensure a safe, fair transition area for all of the kids. Volunteers reserve the right to move athlete gear in order to help create spots for other competitors should the need arise.

Perhaps the dominance of EDI over Internet-based e-procurement in the manufacturing sector accounts for this result. Other studies that examine Swedish firms find that access to broadband is associated with increases in productivity of 3.6 percent for manufacturing and services firms
Grafix® Demonstrates Overwhelming Efficacy in Landmark Stem Cell Study for the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers Grafix closes three times as many wounds as standard of care - the largest relative improvement ever reported in a multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical trial for DFU COLUMBIA, Md. - August 13,2013 - Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIR), reported today that its multicenter, randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing the safety and effectiveness of Grafix® to standard of care in patients with chronic diabetic foot ulcers had met the pre-specified stopping rules for overwhelming efficacy as determined by the data monitoring committee during a planned interim analysis. For the primary endpoint, 62% of patients receiving Grafix had complete wound closure compared to only 21% (p<0.0001) of patients who received conventional treatment for their wounds - a relative improvement of 191% and the largest ever reported from such a study. A total of 131 patients were enrolled with the interim analysis being conducted on the first 97 to complete the trial. The trial also reached statistical significance in favor of Grafix on all top-line secondary endpoints, demonstrating faster wound closure and a reduction in the number of treatments needed to achieve wound closure. In the crossover phase of the trial, patients whose wounds failed to close after 12 weeks of standard of care had an 80% closure rate when switched to Grafix. Importantly, patients randomized to receive standard of care were 74% more likely to experience an adverse event than those receiving Grafix (p=0.008). As a result, the blinded phase of the trial is being discontinued immediately and all patients randomized to the control arm will be offered treatment with Grafix. “Today, Osiris has established a new standard in diabetic wound care and has demonstrated to the world the tremendous impact stem cell products can have in medicine,” said C. Randal Mills, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer. “Diabetic foot ulcers afflict 25% of all diabetics and are responsible for more hospitalizations than any other diabetic complication. With 25 million diabetics in the United States, the cost to our health care system is enormous. Through this rigorous study we have shown that Grafix can heal more patients, in less time, and with fewer complications.”
Date introduced June 10, 2013 Climate Change Greenhouse gas emissions have an impact on the planet’s balance of land, ocean, and air temperatures. Most of Apple’s corporate greenhouse gas emissions come from the production, transport, use, and recycling of its products. Apple seeks to minimize greenhouse gas emissions by setting stringent design-related goals for material and energy eﬃciency. The chart below provides the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for the 11-inch MacBook Air over its life cycle. Greenhouse Gas Emissions for 11-inch MacBook Air Recycling, 1% Transport, 5% The 11-inch MacBook Air is designed with the following features to reduce environmental impact: Production, 75% Customer use, 19% • Arsenic-free display glass • Mercury-free LED-backlit display • Brominated flame retardant–free Total greenhouse gas emissions: 320 kg CO2e • PVC-free2 • Recyclable aluminum enclosure Meets ENERGY STAR® Version 5.2 requirements Achieves a Gold rating from EPEAT3 Energy Eﬃciency Because one of the largest portions of product-related greenhouse gas emissions results from actual use, energy efficiency is a key part of each product’s design. Apple products use powerefficient components, and software that intelligently powers them down during periods of inactivity. The result is that MacBook Air is energy efficient right out of the box. The 11-inch MacBook Air outperforms the stringent requirements of the ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Computers Version 5.2. Using only 5.9W in idle with the display on, it consumes less power than any Mac, and consumes 49 percent less energy than the original MacBook Air.

In the context of today’s changing fiscal landscape on both the state and federal level, the Metro North REB is entering a stage of development that is guided by new opportunities as well as challenges. As it moves forward, the REB must identify creative new approaches, consider diverse sources of funding, and streamline existing systems to optimize efficiency. In addition, undertaking a renewed philosophy of continuous improvement and innovation in program implementation will be crucial to adjusting approaches in workforce development to align with the ever-changing economy. Historically, the education and workforce development systems have been only sporadically, marginally, or indirectly connected to business needs. Although some components of the workforce development system (notably community-based training and employment programs), have a long history of aligning their training with strong employer partnerships, the K-12 and college education systems have been grounded in a philosophy of preparing people for life, by providing a broad, general education, and only targeting training to specific occupations later in the post-secondary experience. In addition, education and workforce development have struggled to keep up with changing technologies and trends in industry, often lacking critical information about where career opportunities exist and what skills and abilities are necessary to take advantage of those options. As a result, education and training are often disconnected from real-time employer needs, and as a result, unemployed youth and adults often lack the necessary skills to enter those jobs that do exist, creating a growing class of disconnected or never connected workers.
On May 17, 2013, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, an accident occurred on Metro-North’s New Haven Line, when an eastbound Metro-North train of 8 cars, traveling 74 mph, derailed and came to rest on an adjacent track. Approximately 20 seconds later, a westbound Metro-North train on that adjacent track struck the derailed train. As a result of the accident, more than 50 people, some seriously injured, were hospitalized, rail operations were suspended, and millions in property damage occurred. • On May 28, 2013, a second accident occurred when a Metro-North train in West Haven, Connecticut, that was traveling 70 mph, struck and killed a Metro-North maintenance-ofway (MOW) employee who was part of a roadway work group performing railroad maintenance on a construction project. • On July 18, 2013, a third accident occurred when a CSX Transportation freight train derailed while traveling over Metro-North’s system. No one was injured, but property damage was significant. • On December 1, 2013, the fourth accident occurred when a Metro-North train of 7 cars traveling south from Poughkeepsie, New York, to Grand Central Terminal in New York City, derailed as it approached the Spuyten Duyvil Station. All cars derailed and the front cab came to rest close to the Harlem River. Four passengers were killed, and more than 70 were injured. Rail operations were suspended, and millions of dollars in property damage alone was sustained. On December 3, 2013, 2 days after the fourth and most serious of these accidents, FRA sent a letter to MTA expressing support for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s directive that MTA hold a safety stand-down, and directing Metro-North to implement a Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) (Appendix 2). Additionally, FRA issued Emergency Order 29 and Safety Advisory 2013-08. • Emergency Order 29, issued on December 6, 2013, required Metro-North to take immediate action to prevent excessive train speeds by identifying and prioritizing highrisk areas, modifying its existing signal system to ensure speed limits are obeyed, and 1 requiring a higher level of engagement and communication among operating crewmembers in areas in which major speed restrictions are in place. • Safety Advisory 2013-08, issued on December 10, 2013, urged railroads to provide additional training, increase the frequency of operational testing, and reinforced the importance of communication between crew members. The purpose was to ensure that all railroads adhere to Federal regulations and railroad operating rules regarding maximum authorized train speed limits. On December 16, 2013, FRA launched Operation Deep Dive, an assessment of Metro-North’s operations and safety compliance. More than 60 technical and human factor experts comprising 14 teams, conducted a 60-day comprehensive safety assessment of Metro-North. With assistance from the Federal Transit Administration, these experts reviewed and assessed Metro-North’s safety-related processes and procedures, its compliance with safety regulations and requirements, and its overall safety culture. In assessing Metro-North, the Deep Dive team evaluated:...
