How Immersion Thermal Circulators Work

At the dawn of the 19th century, an Am nike erican born Bavarian noble named Benjamin Thompson became interested in the subject of heat. Thompson, or Count von Rumford as his Bavarian patron titled him, wanted to know how heat could transfer through various media. He wrote extensively upon the subject, citing experiments such as plunging cored, peeled apples first into ice water, and then into boiling water to see how long it took for them to change temperature.

Many of his experiments focused on food the count was very much interested in the subject. His inventions include devices as the double boiler and a kitchen range.

The basic concept is simple: Vacuum seal the food you wish to cook in plastic bags. Immerse nike those bags in a hot water bath temperatures tend to range between 105 to 160 degrees Fahrenheit (40.6 to 71.1 degrees Celsius). Maintain the temperature of the bath for as long as the food requires to cook through, which can be up to 72 hours for some foo nike ds [source: ThermoWorks].

Maintaining the temperature precisely is critical. That’s where immersion circulators come in. They’re devices that circulate the water and regul nike ate its heat so that your sous vide dish comes out perfectly.

How Iacocca Became A Fervent Air Bag Evangelist

August 31, 1989By Don Oldenburg Washington Post

Probably the greatest irony in more than two decades of national debate over automotive safety is that Chrysler Motors Corp. next month will be the first American auto maker to install driver side air bags in all of its new models. The company’s abrupt reversal on air bags is indicative of the tempest that has surrounded these safety devices since their invention in the mid ’60s.

Only five years ago, in his bestselling autobiography, Chrysler Corp. chairman Lee A. Iacocca boasted of his fight against air bags from the start. For more than two decades, he rhetorically pounded the device as if it were a punching bag. And in his chapter titled ”How to Save Lives on the Road,” the longtime seat belt advocate aimed well below the belt. I’m not sure I’d want one of those gizmos in my car.”

In fact, Iacocca was certain he didn’t want one in his or any car he made. In 1971, he and Henry Ford II (then the top executives at the Ford Motor Co.) met secretly with President Richard Nixon to persuade him to kill a pending Department of Transportation regulation requiring air bags in every new car sold in the United States.

As disclosed nike a decade later in one of Nixon’s Oval Office tapes, Iacocca argued the economic dangers of air bags, even bad mouthing shoulder harnesses and headrests as ”complete wastes of money.” The regulations were quashed.

Since then, Iacocca has regularly repeated his anti air bag message. At a news conference in 1983, he admitted, ”I’m so tired of talking about air bags. the last 20 years, I don’t know what to say anymore.”

In his autobiography, Iacocca summed up the standard criticisms that people will think they can replace using seat belts, that they don’t work well by themselves, that they’re dangerous because they can inflate when they should nike n’t or not inflate when they should.

”A bag blowing up at the wrong time can throw back the driver and lead to an accident,” he wrote. ”Even in relatively innocuous cases, an air bag blowing up prematurely can be very expensive to fix. Besides, sodium azide (used to ignite the inflation) isn’t the kind of chemical I want to be riding around with.” Iacocca predicted that ”10 years after this book is published, the government will still be debating air bags. When the crusaders get on their high horses, it’s impossible to stop them. ”

Four years later, Iacocca made a U turn. Announcing a year ago in June that Chrysler would install air bags in all its 1990 models, he stated in a two page newspaper ad: ”You can teach an old dog new tricks. You won’t hear any more beefs abou nike t air bags from me.”

Initially, word out of Detroit was that Iacocca’s old bromide that ”safety doesn’t sell” finally proved wrong in the late ’80s, when pollsters and buyers were indicating that safety had become a real concern. A salesman, if nothing else, did Iacocca change his mind on air bags to match his market’s?

”I can’t speak for the state of Lee’s mind, as it may have changed throughout the years,” says Chrysler Motors chairman Bennett E. Bidwell. ”I would hypothesize that his original position had been influenced by Henry Ford’s position, nike saying that air bags are full of baloney.”

The way Bidwell explains it, however, the biggest problem with air bags for auto manufacturers has had little to do with cold cut philosophy. The problem has been pragmatics, logistics. Detroit, he states matter of factly, always has believed air bags were feasible technologically. But could they be produced in mass volume? What happens if they inadvertently inflate? Who is liable if they prove unreliable? Who pays for the high ticket bags of air?

”They’ve been kind of a great unknown, a technically feasible device that seems to pose a hell of a lot of risks,” says Bidwell. Testing and research reduced some of those doubts. But nothing eased Chrysler’s corporate fears more than the fact that 200,000 Chrysler models, already installed with air bags and on the road, have proven reliable, even beneficial.

”We’ve got a body of experience right now which is fairly comforting,” says Bidwell. In 1,600 of those cars, air bags have been employed. Bidwell reports no evidence of fatalities occurring as a result of air bag failure in those instances, and no evidence of inadvertent deployment.

”There have been a half dozen or more cases where the individual involved states flatly that their lives were saved by the air bag,” he says. ”So we’re gaining confidence in it, and we hope over time the American public will say it is a damn good thing.”

How I Won Four Tickets To Star Awards 2014

And it is very different from watching the Star Awards on TV at home.

For one, the atmosphere is CRAZYYYY! The various fan clubs generate so much noise that you wonder why herbal lozenges are not included in the goodie bags.

Secondly, there are no advertisements. Wait let me repeat that again. THERE ARE NO ADVERTISEMENTS. Woohoo! I really dislike TV advertisements, so there you have it watch the Star Awards ceremony live!

Third, you don miss a sec. Some portions of the show had been edited, especially if you watch the repeat telecast. For instance, Chen Liping, upon receiving her Best Actress award, proclaimed glory be to God but it seems that portion was cut out from the nike 2nd telecast.

nike And here how I won those 4 tickets. I took part i nike n 8 Days Magazine Caption Contest. I won tickets for 2 of my captions. Here are the photos and my accompanying captions. 😀 [Both pictures are from 8 Days]

[“Hey bro, smile lah. You want an endorsement next year or not?” :P]

[“People say you have to be friends with everyone in order to win an award. I’m, like, whatever.” :D]

Did I stay for the whole awards ceremony? Nope. We left early so as to nike avoid the crowd when taking the train home. We left just before the Top 10 Favorite Female and Male Artiste awards were given out.
