Ford Lion AJD

Con il nome Ford Lion AJD si intende una famiglia di motori diesel per uso automobilistico prodotti a partire dal 2004 dalla Casa automobilistica statunitense Ford. Una buona parte di questi motori è stata realizzata in joint-venture con il gruppo automobilistico francese PSA.

La nascita di questa famiglia di motori va fatta risalire al 1999, anno in cui il Gruppo Ford ed il Gruppo PSA strinsero un accordo per la produzione in comune di motori diesel. Da tale joint-venture sarebbero nati svariati motori di diverse fasce di utilizzo. Le versioni di punta sono quelle appartenenti proprio a quella che il Gruppo Ford ha battezzato famiglia Lion. Tale famiglia ha avuto origine nel 2004 con la nascita di una prima versione, un V6 da 2.7 litri utilizzata anche su modelli del gruppo francese. In seguito sarebbe arrivata anche una versione V8 da 3.6 litri, quest’ultima montata solo da modelli del gruppo Ford. Le caratteristiche comuni a queste tre versioni sono l’utilizzo di un lega in ghisa grafitica compattata (CGI) per la realizzazione del monoblocco e le testate in lega di alluminio. Comune a tutte le versioni è anche l’alimentazione ad iniezione diretta common rail. Presso la Ford, questi motori entrano a far parte della più ampia famiglia di motori Duratorq, di cui rappresentano le versioni di punta. Di seguito sono illustrate le caratteristiche di queste due versioni.
Si tratta del primo motore Lion ad esordire. È il V6 prodotto in joint-venture con il Gruppo PSA. Tale propulsore è stato prodotto in due versioni, rispettivamente da 2.7 e da 3 litri ed è sovralimentato da due turbocompressori. È stato il primo V6 turbodiesel ad equipaggiare una Jaguar (appartenuta alla Ford dal 1989 al 2008).
La versione 2.7 è stata progettata e realizzata congiuntamente con il Gruppo PSA, presso il quale tale motore è conosciuto con la sigla DT17. È l’unico motore di questa famiglia ad essere stato montato anche su modelli del gruppo francese.
La versione da 3 litri, introdotta nel marzo del 2009, è caratterizzata da una cilindrata di 2993 cc (alesaggio e corsa: 84×90 mm) e da un rapporto di compressione pari a 16:1. Ma sintetizzarlo in questo modo sarebbe riduttivo. Prima di tutto ne esistono cinque varianti, ma le principali sono essenzialmente due, una più prestante e l’altra di meno. La versione meno prestante è arrivata qualche mese dopo, nell’estate del 2009, e pur essendo la versione meno brillante delle due, eroga però già 241 CV ed è la variante utilizzata anche dal gruppo PSA sui suoi modelli di punta, sebbene abbia trovato pure alcune applicazioni anche in alcuni modelli Jaguar. Il suo nome in codice è DT20C.
La versione più brillante ha debuttato sulla Jaguar XF 3.0DS V6 del 2009, per essere poi estesa alla versione Sportbrake 3.0DS del 2012, cioè alla versione station wagon. Si tratta quindi di modelli il cui marchio fino al 2008 è appartenuto al Gruppo Ford, ma che in seguito è stato ceduto a Tata Group. A dispetto di ciò, il marchio britannico ha acquisito il diritto di usufruire sia del precedente V6 da 2.7 litri, sia delle sue evoluzioni. Il nuovo 3 litri è di fatto un’evoluzione del biturbodiesel da 204 CV nato nel 2004, quindi la Jaguar può usufruirne anche in piena era Tata. In seguito, all’inizio del 2010, questo motore ha trovato posto anche sotto il cofano dell’ammiraglia del Giaguaro, ossia la nuovissima generazione della Jaguar XJ, nella versione 3.0D. Fatte le dovute precisazioni, ecco una descrizione più precisa del motore. Si tratta di un motore progettato in funzione della massima efficienza possibile e del massimo rendimento termico, il tutto per rendere tale propulsore conforme alla normativa Euro 5 vigente all’epoca del debutto del motore stesso. A tale scopo sono state riprogettate le camere di scoppio ed i condotti di aspirazione e scarico, in modo da ottenere la giunta turbolenza atta al riempimento ottimale dei cilindri ed alla combustione più completa possibile. Allo scopo di ottenere una camera di scoppio dalla forma ideale, anche i pistoni sono stati rivisti, e nella parte superiore sono stati lavorati in modo da creare una sorta di concavità che va a definire del tutto la forma della camera di scoppio quando il pistone stesso giunge al PMS. Anche l’impianto di alimentazione è stato rivisto: ora vengono utilizzati 6 iniettori di tipo piezoelettrico e dotati di sette fori. Ad ogni fase di iniezione, il getto principale viene preceduto da un getto di preparazione che crei una sorta di predisposizione per la camera di scoppio

, che così può accendersi spontaneamente in maniera completa. L’intervallo tra il getto di preparazione ed il getto principale può scendere fino a soli 100 μs. Sempre a proposito dell’alimentazione, vi è anche una nuova pompa di iniezione realizzata dalla Bosch, pompa in grado di raggiungere una pressione di alimentazione di 2000 bar. La sovralimentazione avviene tramite un nuovo sistema realizzato dalla Honeywell, consistente in una configurazione bi-stadio diversa da quella presente nel precedente 2.7. Nel caso del nuovo 3 litri, si ha un grosso turbocompressore a bassa inerzia che lavora a regimi bassi: 300 ms dopo che il motore ha superato i 2800 giri/min, gli subentra un secondo turbocompressore, sempre a bassa inerzia ma di dimensioni minori. Questo nuovo tipo di sistema di sovralimentazione, permette di evitare gli eccessivi innalzamenti di pressione allo scarico, con conseguenti perdite di pompaggio, fattori che minano l’efficienza del motore, e che erano presenti nel precedente motore da 2.7 litri. Un’elevata efficienza deriva anche dal sistema di ricircolo dei gas di scarico, dotato di una nuova valvola, ed in grado di ridurre ulteriormente l’emissione di ossidi di azoto. La potenza massima è di 275 CV a 4000 giri/min, mentre la coppia massima raggiunge 600 N·m a 2000 giri/min, di cui ben 500 già a 1500 giri/min. Nonostante le prestazioni superiori, i consumi e le emissioni inquinanti sono sensibilmente calati. A partire dal 2013, la versione da 275 CV non è più quella dalle più alte prestazioni, perché in occasione del lancio commerciale della seconda serie della Range Rover Sport, basata sulla quarta generazione della Range Rover, è stata introdotta una nuova variante in grado di erogare fino a 292 CV a 4000 giri/min, con coppia massima sempre a 600 Nm a 2000 giri/min. Questa variante è stata in seguito in altre varianti e portata fino a 306 CV di potenza massima.
Come già detto, e come pare evidente, sono state realizzate comunque altre varianti di tale motore. Ecco quindi di seguito un prospetto che riassume tutte le varianti del motore Ford Lion AJD da 3 litri:
Il V8 AJD è stato introdotto nel 2006, e deriva strettamente dal V6 da 2.7 litri, al quale si sono aggiunti altri due cilindri. È stato finora prodotto in due livelli di cilindrata, 3.6 e 4.4 litri. Tali motori mantengono le caratteristiche di distribuzione e sovralimentazione già viste nei due V6. La distribuzione rimane quindi a doppio albero a camme in testa per bancata, con testate a 4 valvole per cilindro, mentre la sovralimentazione avviene mediante due turbocompressori con due intercooler.
La variante da 3.6 litri è stata la prima a debuttare: essa mantiene le stesse misure di alesaggio e corsa del V6 da 2.7 litri, grazie ai due cilindri in più raggiunge una cilindrata di 3628 cc. La potenza massima erogabile è di 272 CV a 4000 giri/min, mentre la coppia massima raggiunge ben 640 Nm a 2000 giri/min. Questo motore è stato montato su:
La variante da 4.4 litri, derivata dal 3.6 descritto poc’anzi, è stata introdotta nel settembre del 2010: grazie alle sue misure di alesaggio e corsa pari ad 84×98.5 mm, la cilindrata raggiunge i 4367 cc. La potenza massima è di 313 CV a 4000 giri/min, con un picco di coppia pari a ben 700 Nm a 1500 giri/min. Questo motore ha debuttato nel Range Rover 4.4 TDV8, prodotta appunto a partire dalla fine dell’estate 2010.

Union Pacific Police Department

The Union Pacific Police Department is the law enforcement agency of the Union Pacific Railroad. Its headquarters is in Omaha, Nebraska and its current Chief of Police is Robert Morrison. The railroad police force dates to the 1850s, when the number of U.S. Marshals was insufficient to police America’s growing rail network. U.S. Marshals were replaced with a private police company, the North-Western Police Agency, later known as the Pinkerton Agency. Officers were called Pinkertons, named after their originator, Allan Pinkerton, who founded the private police company in 1855 with Chicago attorney Edward Rucker. Today, the Union Pacific Police Department is one of the sixteen Class I railroad law enforcement agencies across the country.

Union Pacific maintains a functioning police department staffed with officers given the title of Special Agent with jurisdiction over crimes against the railroad. Like most railroad police, its primary jurisdiction is unconventional, consisting of 54,116 miles (87,091 kilometers) of track in 23 western U.S. states. Railroad police are certified state law enforcement officers with investigative and arresting powers both on and off railroad property if authorized by the state they are operating within. They also have interstate authority pursuant to federal law (Title 49, United States Code, Section 28101. Under Public Law 110-53 SEC. 1526. (RAILROAD SECURITY ENHANCEMENTS)), Railroad police powers have been expanded to include railroads other than the officer’s employing agency. All of the states in Union Pacific’s 23 state system authorize full police authority, except for Minnesota and Wyoming, which do not grant authority to railroad police at all.
Special Agents typically investigate major incidents such as derailments, sabotage, grade crossing accidents and hazardous material accidents and minor issues such as trespassing on the railroad right of way, vandalism/graffiti, and theft of company property or customer product. In accordance with their duties, Special Agents have the ability to access the FBI’s NCIC database to run suspects and vehicles for wants and warrants, as well as criminal history checks.
Special Agents often coordinate and liaise with local, state, and federal law enforcement on issues concerning the railroad and are dispatched nationally through the Response Management Communications Center (RMCC) in Omaha

, Nebraska. The Union Pacific Police Department and the title „Special Agent“ were models for the FBI when it was created in 1907.
The Union Pacific Police Department can be contacted for railroad emergencies on Union Pacific tracks or right of way at 1-888-UPRR-COP (888-877-7267).
The Union Pacific Police use a variety of different weapons and vehicles. There are set regulations for the department with respect to weapons. The UP Police are issued the Glock 22, .40SW. They use a number of different vehicles due to their jurisdiction.

National Orchestra Service

The National Orchestra Service, Inc. (NOS), was the most important booking and management agency for territory bands across the Great Plains and other regions from the early 1930s through 1960. NOS managed black, white and integrated orchestras and was headquartered in Omaha.

National Orchestra Service specialized in booking ballroom dance orchestras known as territory bands. The company’s reputation as the premier booking agent in that genre helped them dominate their industry for almost 20 years. Bands that NOS represented were typically smaller than the Glenn Miller-type orchestras, usually featuring about 12 pieces, sometimes 15; though ensemble sizes tended to wax and wane with the economy.
NOS handled bookings in:
February 1930 — National Orchestra Service was founded in Omaha. Serl Frank Hutton was its founder and sole proprietor until 1952 bogner ski jackets, when Lee Williams joined as a partner.
By way of merger with Music Management Service in January 1954, Royce Stoenner and David Wenrich, who formed Music Management Service, joined NOS as salaried employees. In September 1959, Royce Stoenner left the NOS agency to join as a 50% partner with the Dave Brumitt Agency, a territory band booking agency in Atlanta.
In 1939, the NOS headquarters at located at 709 World-Herald Building, Omaha, NE.[notes 1] Later, NOS moved to the eleventh floor — the top floor — of the Omaha National Bank Building in Downtown Omaha. The top floor was actually the sixteenth and the address was 1611 City National Bank Bldg bogner online.
In February 1960, National Orchestra Service, Inc., folded.
In August 1943, Lee Williams was the only band working for National Orchestra Service due to war rationing (gasoline, tires, and the like) and shortage of musicians (the draft).
A booking contract consisted of an agency fee, typically 10% for „on location“ dates (a week or greater) and 20% for one nighters. One nighters paid more than „on location“ dates. In the 1950s, a one nighter could range from $750 to $1,000 for a Monday or Tuesday and $15,000 to $20,000 for a Friday or Saturday for some of the top bands. „On location“ bookings could range from $15,000 to $20,000 a week. NOS required the hiring party to make a 50% deposit to solidify the contract. The musicians, in theory, belonged to the Musicians Union through their local. A component of a union contract required a rate to be paid to each musician based on traveling distance to the engagement. The union also collected a fee from the ballroom operator (or employer), typically $10 per musician for an engagement.
Many territory bands from NOS traveled in sleeper trailers connected to tractor-trailer trucks. The most popular sleeper was manufactured by Wilson Body Company in Sioux City, IA. They were purchased, owned, and maintained by the orchestras. Lawrence Welk is thought to have been the first to design and use a sleeper.
Serl’s father, Frank Hutton, was born March 8, 1872 in Iowa and his mother, Adelaide Searles, was born in Iowa too. Serl married to Fern Marguerite Butler (maiden) on November 29, 1924, in Gregory County, South Dakota. Fern was born December 1898, in Omaha. Fern died February 1985. Fern’s father, George W. Butler, was born in Ohio and her mother, Amy Ann Davis (maiden), was born June 15, 1876 in Horton, Nova Scotia.
Before the war, Stoenner directed his own Orchestra and owned Music Management Service in Omaha. When Pearl Harbor was attacked December 7, 1941, Stoenner wound-down the operations of both his orchestra and booking agency. In 1942, Stoenner joined the U.S. Army Air Corps, serving as a bombardier. In 1943, while in the service, Stoenner, stationed at Maxwell Field, directed a marching band of 90 to 100 musicians and a 19 piece stage band featuring a 36 voice glee club that had a Fred Waring sound. Upon discharge from the service in 1945, Stoenner joined Frederick Brothers in Chicago, a territory booking agency. In 1947, he joined the Allsbrook-Pumphrey Agency in Richmond, Virginia, and reformed his orchestra, performing and working as a booking agent.

Lucius Orbilius Pupillus

Lucius Orbilius Pupillus, meist einfach Orbilius (* 113 v. Chr. in Benevent; † 13 v. Chr. in Rom), war ein lateinischer Grammatiker und Pädagoge.
Nach dem Tod seiner Eltern verarmt, diente er laut Sueton als Verwaltungsbeamter und Soldat, bevor er in seiner Heimatstadt Benevent einen eigenen Schulbetrieb eröffnete, den er in seinem 50. Lebensjahr 63 v. Chr. nach Rom verlagerte. Dort erwarb er sich zwar fachliche Anerkennung, brachte es aber nicht zu Wohlstand und lebte in einfachsten Verhältnissen. Mit zunehmendem Alter verhärtete sich sein Wesen.
In Rom gehörte Horaz zu den Schülern des über Sechzigjährigen. Er zeichnete später in einem Brief (epist. 2, 1) ein knappes, wenig schmeichelhaftes Porträt seines Lehrers, durch das Orbilius für die Nachwelt sprichwörtlich wurde. So erhielt er von seinem Schüler das Beiwort plagosus („reich an Hieben“), das auch von Sueton (gramm. 9, 2) bezeugt wird. Seither steht sein Name für den Typus des kleinlichen, jähzornigen und strafenden Lehrers.
Orbilius starb hochbetagt im Alter von fast 100 Jahren. Er hinterließ einen Sohn gleichen Namens, der ebenfalls Grammatik lehrte. Sueton berichtet, dass auf dem Kapitol von Benevent eine Statue des Lucius Orbilius Pupillus aufgestellt wurde, die ihn sitzend im Pallium zeigte

Science for Society

Science for Society (also known as S4S) started in 2008 as an informal group of students from different backgrounds including engineering, medical, business and science. Science for Society was registered as an NGO in 2010; Vaibhav Tidke was the founder.

Science for Society’s main field of operation is in social welfare through using technology, low cost and innovative, renewable, environmentally friendly technology solutions arising among an interdisciplinary pool of student volunteers.
A solar-powered dryer was the first project started by S4S with the aim of achieving higher efficiency at low cost so that small farmers from India could use this technology to dry their crops. This patented technology is based on combination of various modes of heat transfer, achieving higher efficiency, reducing processing time and reducing capital costs (INR 1500/m^2). Fabrication is done locally from alluminium, onsite insulation and plastic sheet. A pilot plant and quality control lab set up of 100 kg/day is established through funds from United Nations Environment Programme.
This project aims to provide clean, pathogen-free, water to the rural population who do not have access to electric water purifiers because of high cost and non-availability of electricity. Three different technology water disinfection units are developed: Solar disinfection unit, UV-based disinfection unit, and uLtra filtration fisinfection unit.
This project was initiated with the aim of providing healthcare to pregnant woman from rural parts of Maharashtra, India. In this project, Telemedicine wireless modes of communication are used so as to overcome the distance and infrastructure barriers. Parameters like blood pressure, hemoglobin count, body temperature are measured and regular reports are sent to the doctor who is in the urban area.
In traditional dental X-ray, the operator has to periodically change the chemical thrice kelme store. This technology is designed to achieve a low cost, automatic, portable x-ray machine which can be transported to rural towns and thus providing healthcare solutions.

. Fünf Kilometer nach Passieren des Klosters Chrysoskalitissa aus dem 17. Jahrhundert, dessen weißes Gebäude auf einem Felsen direkt am Meer steht, erreicht man einen unbefestigten Parkplatz vor dem Strand.
Bei ruhigem Wetter ohne Wellengang ist Elafonísi mit der Hauptinsel Kreta durch einen Sandstreifen verbunden. Der Sandstrand ist durch winzige Muschelteilchen rosa gefärbt. Der Bereich hinter dem Strand ist mit Tamariskenbäumen bestanden.
Nach Durchwaten des flachen Wassers einer Sandbank erreicht man die eigentliche Insel Elafonisi. Sie erstreckt sich auf durchschnittlich 330 Meter Breite und 1,5 Kilometer Länge südwestlich ins offene Meer. Die Inselspitze bildet eine Anhöhe, auf der sich ein Leuchtturm befindet. Neben diesem am Nordwestkap steht die kleine Koundourakis-Kapelle aus den 1970er Jahren. Die felsige Anhöhe ist nur an dieser Seite über einen Trampelpfad zu erreichen.
An der Südwestspitze steht ein großes Holzkreuz in Erinnerung an ein Schiffsunglück im Jahre 1907. Zwischen Leuchtturm und Kreuz ist noch ein Denkmal in Form einer Miniaturkirche aus Felsgestein errichtet, wie sie in ähnlicher Form, Proskinitiria genannt, auf ganz Kreta an Straßenrändern zu sehen sind.
Die Nordwestküste von Elafonisi ist sehr felsig und zerklüftet. An der Südostküste haben sich hingegen zwischen dunklem Gestein viele kleine Meeresbassins gebildet, an denen sich Sandstrände befinden. Zwischen beiden Inselseiten erstrecken sich flache Sanddünen mcm taschen, die mit niederer Vegetation bestanden sind. Die Dünen sollten nicht betreten werden, da Elafonisi ein Naturschutzgebiet ist.
Der Strand auf Kreta vor der Insel Elafonisi und die Strände der Insel, die Kreta gegenüberliegen, sind jedes Jahr Ziel vieler Touristen, da dieser Ort in vielen Reiseführern und von vielen Reiseveranstaltern empfohlen wird. Von Paleochora verkehren regelmäßig Ausflugsschiffe, die nordöstlich von Elafonisi anlanden.
Am 24. April 1824, einem Ostersonntag, sollen auf Elafonisi mehrere Hundert Griechen durch osmanische Truppen getötet worden sein. 40 bewaffnete griechische Männer hatten sich mit Frauen, Kindern und Alten vor den anrückenden Truppenteilen auf die Insel geflüchtet. Die Osmanen fanden von ihrem Lager am Strand jedoch die flache Furt zur Insel und entdeckten die flüchtigen Griechen. Nach verschiedenen Angaben handelte es sich um 600 bis 850 Personen, von denen die meisten getötet und die Überlebenden in die Sklaverei nach Ägypten verkauft wurden. Auf dem höchsten Punkt der kleinen Insel erinnert eine Gedenktafel an dieses Ereignis. Zum Gedenken daran werden alljährlich im August die „Lafonisia“, sportliche Wettbewerbe, veranstaltet.
Vor der Westküste der Insel sank am 22. Februar 1907 der Passagierdampfer Imperatrix des Österreichischen Lloyd. Bei dem Unglück infolge starker Nordwestwinde kamen 38 Menschen ums Leben, die in einem Rettungsboot versuchten, das Ufer zu erreichen. Sie wurden auf Elafonisi bestattet. Die Imperatrix liegt noch heute auf dem Meeresgrund vor den Klippen der Insel. Das Unglück war Anlass, auf Elafonisi einen Leuchtturm zu errichten, der im Zweiten Weltkrieg durch die deutschen Besatzungstruppen zerstört, später jedoch wiederaufgebaut wurde.
