Ten April Fool’s pranks of 2009

Friday, April 3, 2009 

April Fools’ Day pranks harmlessly pervaded worldwide again this year. Media outlets and internet sites have joined family, office workers, and friends to provide a wide variety of practical jokes. Ireland, France, and the United States celebrate April Fools all day, whereas a few countries celebrate jokes only until noon such as the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and South Africa.

Car and Driver claimed that GM and Chrysler were ordered out of NASCAR by the White House by the end of 2009 in order to receive any more government loans. There are press releases about this short-lived prank which received controversial feedback.

The Swiss Tourism Board has announced that volunteers were desperately needed, The Association of Mountain Cleaners “makes sure that our holiday guests can always enjoy perfect mountains. Using brooms, brushes, water and muscle power, they clean the rocks of any bird droppings.”

This year Gmail produced a new autopilot feature for April 1, 2009 which can read your email and automatically respond to every message.

BMW released its new Magnetic Tow Technology which allows your BMW to magnetically attach to the vehicle ahead of you. This enhanced technology allows the driver to remove their foot from the gas pedal and turn off the motor.

The Guardian proposed its move to Twitter, which would allow the newspaper to fit its article content into 140 character messages or “tweets”. Included in this venture was the archiving of past events reported by The Guardian, such as, “1927 OMG first successful transatlantic air flight wow, pretty cool! Boring day otherwise *sigh*”

Google’s technological break through for April Fool’s Day was CADIE, (Cognitive Autoheuristic Distributed-Intelligence Entity). By extracting internet search patterns combined with Brain Search, a part of CADIE technology, Google can now search your thoughts and memories.

Wikipedia even fooled Fox News who claimed that “every item on the home page of the user-generated site Wikipedia is fake. The featured Wikipedia article regaled the “Museum of Bad Art” in Boston.” However, each item on the main page was based on reality — even news articles such as NASA reports a shower of diamonds over the Republic of Sudan, which was based on a meteorite which passed over Sudan whose fragments did reveal diamonds upon discovery.

The Conficker Internet worm had been in the news warning of a worst case scenario when computers worldwide would be affected by the virus. Even the chief security adviser for Microsoft, Ed Gibson, didn’t want to make any predictions about what would happen. Experts just knew that it was set to go off on April 1. Several anomalous happenings were attributed to Conficker including Leroy “Mac” MacElrie who claimed to be the programmer of the Conficker worm and turned himself in to police.

Hotels.com ran an advertisement offering hotel room bookings on the moon which would be offered on European websites starting at £800 a night.

Qualcomm ingeniously revealed a new wireless networking technology called wireless convergence. Making use of the flight patterns of pigeons. They then use innovative solutions to converge the birds with wolves to protect the internal improvements.

Media outlets were not the only ones pulling pranks. Gaming websites across the internet Blizzard, Joystiq, and affiliates posted reviews and announcements of games with tongue in cheek. YouTube offered viewers a unique April Fool’s experience as videos were offered upside down. In Ireland, U2 fans received a U2opia concert on a shopping centre roof top concert rather than the real thing.

Diagnosing Leaks From Vintage Gm &Amp; Chevrolet Turbo Hydramatic Automatic Transmissions

By Tom I Stables

Vintage auto buffs restoring vintage Chevrolets may require basic service and diagnosis of standard run of the mill 400 and 400/475 Turbo Hydra-Matic automatic transmissions of their Chevys that are their automotive restoration project. They may want to do the work themselves or their local GM dealership service department or vintage auto community trusted mechanic may just be too busy. It may be the case that their local auto restoration expert of perhaps the local Chevy guy is instead perhaps working on more exotic cars and components and thus has given them the short shift. Here is a quick service guide for quick service on 400 & 400/475 GM especially Chevrolet Turbo Hydra-matic automatic transmissions especially in dealing with diagnosis of the causes of basic and simple transmission fluid leaks.

The Chevy enthusiast may be quite hamstrung and even alarmed to find fluid leaking out of the bottom of their project car onto the pavement or garage floor. Have heart and persistence. These older GM products are not only built like Chevies they were solidly built, relatively simple and made easy to work on. This you might notice is unlike mainly of the domestic and imported Japanese, Asian and European newer vehicles that your shop will come across and cannot really work on in any practical sense. That is of course without specialized tools available only and at and through you guessed the auto makers local dealerships service center and their factory trained mechanics and technicians.

The Turbo Hydra-Matic 400 and 400/475 transmissions are labeled as fully automatic units consisting primarily of a three element hydraulic torque converter and a compound planetary gear set. Three multiple-discs clutches. One sprag unit, one roller clutch and two bands provide the friction elements to obtain the desired function of the planetary gear set.

The first task in this series is to check fluid level which should be fairly standard procedure for auto owners. At normal operating (non cold being driven or warmed up) fluid levels on the transmission dip stick should be at the full (on Chevrolets and older GM products) or in some other trucks, cars and now SUVs at the max or maximum marking. Specifically with this turbo hydra-matic setup in case of cold tranny fluid measurements the level should lie approximately inch below the Add mark on the stick. Emphatically put only Dexron fluid should be used and nothing else ever.

Note that possible points for oil and transmission fluid leaks may generally occur at the following points: transmission old pan leaks resulting from attached bolts not correctly torqued damaging the pan gasket itself, pan gasket mounting face not flat. Rear extension leaks resulting from attaching bolts not properly torqued, rear seal assembly damaged, O ring in extension case damaged, porous casting. Other possibilities include case leaks resulting from filler pipe O ring damaged, modulator O ring seal damaged and governor cover O ring seal damaged. Next in line if you still have not diagnosed the case of leaking fluid or fluids onto your garage floor or driveway are speedometer ring O ring damage and breach, manual shift seal damages ,line pressure tap plug leakages resulting from worn threads or lacking sealing compound.

Lastly front end leaks may well originate and result from damaged front seal pumps that attach bolts and seals that have during the course of years and many miles coming loose and / or damaged as well, defective converter welds that while they may of held up previously have also during the course of time and miles given way. In addition you may choose to look for pump O ring seals that are damaged.

However the cause of your Dexron transmission fluid leaking onto your driveway or garage floor may be much simpler and easier to correct. If oil comes out of the vent pipe, then simply put your trouble may all in all be caused by a simple overfilling of fluid in your transmission , water in the fluid or a pump to case gasket simply mis-positioned.

by

Clair Clemins

Do you think you\’re thinking of the costume to use this coming Halloween party? Preparing as soon as now could be an awesome strategy. Deciding upon to get a Viking costume would be much better.

Vikings are the warriors and seafarers of yore in the Northern part of Europe. Geographically, they originate from countries like Denmark and Norway. Historically, they sailed the oceanic masses, interested in fresh lands to pillage and plunder or control. You could find their influences in quite a few other nations in this continent including The united kingdom and France.

Stories of their courage and feats would be found within a number of history books and novels. Having said that, the Norse deities aren\’t as well-known as the Romans or the Greeks . Just lately, thanks to varied films created using these North men in the lead, their recognition is gradually growing.

This Halloween, you would be spending your money well on a nice Viking costume, certainly. When interested in a set, it might consist of these elements.

Tunic – The Basics of a Viking Costume

If kimonos are the chief clothing of the Japanese, tunics are the choice in European countries in history. This may serve as an undergarment whilst many people also use it as a sleeping gown as well.

When browsing through the net for a costume set with a tunic in it, you could need to search for 1 which is produced of natural fabrics for instance wool or bedlinen. A few of the ones provided in Viking costume sets usually are made of polyester, which is alright also, thinking about that this is cheaper. It would be greater should you go for the light-colored ones, like cream or white.

Anything with Fur

Norsemen, as explained earlier, live within the northern section of Europe. This means that the climate here is unbearably chilly sometimes. By reason of this a lot of the garments they wear are covered with fur. Capes, mufflers for the throat, head gears, footwear as well as wrist guards are either made of fur or have fur in it.

The Horned Helmet

1 of essentially the most distinct pieces in a Viking halloween costume is the horned helmet or head gear. The real one is made of steel with genuine animal horns. The imitation ones found in costume sets are possibly made of truly light light weight aluminum or hard plastic.

Sword, Shield as well as other Nordic Weapons

When the Vikings are out raiding towns and looting them of their treasures, they are geared for war. 1 is virtually useless without having a large sword, wooden or metal shield (generally shaped round) as well as other weapons needed to ensure success. Normally, the ones you will get for your costume is made of plastic. The fact is that, the majority of these are not truly included inside the set and is sold separately. Nonetheless, in case you seriously wish to look the part, you might as well get one.

There are many Viking costume sets which you\’ll be able to locate on the web. A lot of these alternatives come in one normal size for adults only so you will have to be really careful in deciding on the 1 you will use this coming Halloween.

30 brightly coloured mummies discovered in Egyptian necropolis

Monday, April 13, 2009 

Archaeologists have found approximately 30 beautifully preserved mummies in a 4,000 year old Egyptian necropolis which held 53 tombs.

Supervisor of Antiquities for Middle Egypt Dr. Abdel-Rahman El-Ayedi’s team established his archaeological site in the Faiyum Oasis near the El-Lahun Egyptian pyramid which is just south of Cairo.

Besides the mummies, the team found masks, amulets, clay pots and an offering table located in a funerary chapel. The chapel dates back to about 30 BC to 337 AD.

The amazing preservation of the linen wrapped mummies revealed bright decorations and writings in bright turquoise, terracotta and gold colours which had not faded over time.

“The mission found dozens of mummies in 53 rock-hewn tombs dating to the Middle Kingdom,” said Zahi Hawass. “Four of the mummies date back to the 22nd Dynasty (931 to 725 BC) and are considered some of the most beautiful mummies found.”
