If you dont own a CAR, please wait, TATA launches Mini Cat, air powered car. You can run 200 kms with Rs.100/-worth of compressed air.


Tata Motors is taking giant strides and making history for itself. First the Landrover-Jaguar deal, then the world's cheapest car and now it is also set to introduce the car that runs on air, compressed air to be specific.

 

With fuel prices touching nearly $140 per barrel, it is about time we heard some breakthrough! India's largest automaker Tata Motors is set to start producing the world's first commercial air-powered vehicle.

 

The Air Car, developed by ex-Formula One engineer Guy Nègre for Luxembourg-based MDI, uses compressed air, as opposed to the gas-and-oxygen explosions of internal-combustion models, to push its engine's pistons. Some 6000 zero-emissions Air Cars are scheduled to hit Indian streets by August of 2011.    The Air Car, called the MiniCAT could cost around Rs. 3,50,000 ($ 8177) in India and would have a range of around 300 km between refuels.The cost of a refill would be about Rs. 85 ($ 2).

 


 

The MiniCAT which is a simple, light urban car, with a tubular chassis that is glued not welded and a body of fiberglass powered by compressed air. Microcontrollers are used in every device in the car, so one tiny radio transmitter sends instructions to the lights, indicators etc.There are no keys - just an access card which can be read by the car from your pocket.

 


 

According to the designers, it costs less than 50 rupees per 100Km (about a tenth that of a petrol car). Its mileage is about double that of the most advanced electric car (200 to 300 km or 10 hours of driving), a factor which makes a perfect choice in cities where the 80% of motorists drive at less than 60Km. The car has a top speed of 105 kmph. Refilling the car will, once the market develops, take place at adapted petrol stations to administer compressed air. In two or three minutes, and at a cost of approximately 100 rupees, the car will be ready to go another 200-300 kilometers.

Unknown Factors about Nokia - Connecting People...

The ringtone "Nokia tune" is actually based on a 19th century guitar work named "Gran Vals" by Spanish musician Francisco Tárrega. The Nokia Tune was originally named "Grande Valse" on Nokia phones but was changed to "Nokia Tune" around 1998 when it became so well known that people referred to it as the "Nokia Tune." 

The world's first commercial GSM call was made in 1991 in Helsinki over a Nokia-supplied network, by Prime Minister of Finland Harri Holkeri, using a Nokia phone. 

Nokia is currently the world's largest digital camera manufacturer, as the sales of its camera-equipped mobile phones have exceeded those of any conventional camera manufacturer. 

The "Special" tone available to users of Nokia phones when receiving SMS (text messages) is actually Morse code for "SMS". Similarly, the "Ascending" SMS tone is Morse code for "Connecting People," Nokia's slogan. The "Standard" SMS tone is Morse code for "M" (Message). 

The Nokia corporate font (typeface) is the AgfaMonotype Nokia Sans font, originally designed by Eric Spiekermann. Its mobile phone User's Guides Nokia mostly used the Agfa Rotis Sans font. 

 
In Asia, the digit 4 never appears in any Nokia handset model number, because 4 is considered unlucky in many parts of Southeast/East Asia. 


Nokia was listed as the 20th most admirable company worldwide in Fortune's list of 2006 (1st in network communications, 4th non-US company). 

Unlike other modern day handsets, Nokia phones do not automatically start the call timer when the call is connected, but start it when the call is initiated. (Except for Series 60 based handsets like the Nokia 6600) 

Nokia is sometimes called aikon (Nokia backwards) by non-Nokia mobile phone users and by mobile software developers, because "aikon" is used in various SDK software packages, including Nokia's own Symbian S60 SDK. 

The name of the town of Nokia originated from the river which flowed through the town. The river itself, Nokianvirta, was named after the old Finnish word originally meaning sable, later pine marten. A species of this small, black-furred predatory animal was once found in the region, but it is now extinct.

Tallest Building in the World... ?

India will soon be home to the world’s tallest building, World Centre of Vedic Learning. At 2222 feet, it will be more than 700 feet taller than Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur, the current record holder.

Eleven hundred and eleven feet square at its base, it will be many times larger in mass than any existing tall building. It will have more than 30 million square feet of liveable space on 160 floors. The site of the building is 50 kilometres Northeast of Jabalpur, Madhya Pradesh, in the Brahmasthan, or exact centre point, of India.

The Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 is a mid-engined full-sized grand touring car, one of the fastest and most expensive production road cars ever, with a top speed of 431.3 km/h (268.0 mph). Designed and developed by the German Volkswagen Group and produced by Bugatti Automobiles SAS.

Last week, a Bugatti Supersports 16.4 went 267.81 mph, officially making it the fastest production car on the planet. Mike Spinelli, former Jalopnik lead-man and current editor of 0-60, spoke with the brass-balled test driver that did it. —Ed.

Bugatti test driver — er, pilote official — Pierre Henri Raphanel set the production-car speed record in Bugatti’s new Veyron Supersports 16.4. The 1200-horsepower, 1106-pound-feet monster propelled Raphanel to timed runs of 265.9 and 269.8 mph on Volkswagen’s Ehra-Lessien test track near Wolfsburg, which, according to the Guinness people, averages to a V-max of 267.81 mph. That’s more than enough to bring the title of world’s fastest production car back to the VW fold. We phoned the former F1 and Japanese touring-car driver to get his take on what it’s like to approach the 270-mph mark in a production car, why the forest is his friend, and whether or not he’s up to trying for 300.

What It Feels Like To Break A Speed Record

What does going 268mph in a Veyron feel like?

It’s basically a mental exercise. Physically, you have to do nothing more than to keep your right foot flat out. But at that speed, if anything happens, you can be sure that you won’t be coming back to the pits to tell what was the problem. And that is what is making the pressure, the excitement. The night before I could not sleep because I was so stressed. When I woke up, I looked at the alarm [clock] and it said 4:27. And the next day on my first run I did 427 kilometers per hour. And two days after setting the record I continued to sleep badly because of the stress and the adrenaline and I was waking up at 4:26 and was like I was also cooling down and the speed on the clock was also slowing down.

As a driver, is there a difference between going 268 mph and going, say, “just” 250?

When you’re driving 250 in a Veyron, the car is completely solid. It doesn’t move and you can nearly do that with two fingers. When you’re trying to do the speed record, there is an interaction between the tarmac and the car that you cannot notice when you’re going 250. When you start to go 260, 265, 270, the car is a little bit following where the tarmac is telling to the car to go.What It Feels Like To Break A Speed Record And it’s a strange feeling because you are not really in control as a driver. You don’t know where it’s going to end up. You don’t have any interaction with the steering because it’s too fast and you don’t want to move anything. So it’s like an unknown situation because nobody has been there before, even at the factory in practice. It’s quite stressful.

That does sound stressful.

Also, where we did the run: [Ehra-Lessien] is in the middle of a forest. And there’s no space for anything to be even slightly wrong. It’s not like a salt lake.

Did you encounter anything unexpected during the record run?

For the world record you have to do two straight lines in both directions. At Ehra-Lessien, nobody has been driving on it the reverse way, so it was like a complete discovery for me and for the team. I only had three runs to discover that. You will tell me that you have nothing to discover because it’s only a straight line. Yes, of course, but the tarmac is reacting differently. It was actually much more difficult to make the first run, which was slower, in the wrong direction than it was to make the second run, which was faster, but in the normal direction of road use.

Also, when we were going the reverse way, we were facing a little bit of wind, which is why we couldn’t achieve the same speed as the other side. And at the end of the straight, [I found that] if I was braking later, I would be protected [from the wind] by the forest. So I decided that I would put my braking point later, like 300 meters, just to arrive in this area of forest cover protected from the wind and I would get an extra one mile per hour. So I did that the day before and it was working, so I repeated that the next day. But also when I did that, because I knew that I was late in braking, I’d brake a little bit harder, which is very light when you go such kind of speed, and suddenly the car went from the center lane to the right lane. And I was like, not in control. And the forest was very close. So I think that one extra mile was because of me, and I’m quite proud of that.

What It Feels Like To Break A Speed Record

Do you notice the extra 199 horsepower?

Compared to any other supercar in which you feel engine power going down and you shift gears, in the Veyron the power never goes down. It’s always there. With the Supersport, not only is the engine power not going down, it’s increasing. So the feeling of power is going up, the feeling of speed is going up. It’s just pushing away. It’s an amazing feeling.

How does the Veyron Supersports compare to other speed-record production cars?

People try to compare cars, to say, well this car is faster, more powerful, more something. The thing which is very different in Bugatti is that we’re trying to make things work together that are not supposed to work together. Which is to say, the fastest car in the world that can stay seven hours in traffic in first gear. Normally itWhat It Feels Like To Break A Speed Recorddoesn’t work together. And the same from the design of the car. Is this design made to go 268 mph? Yes, it’s going, but basically if you start from a blank piece of paper and you say I want to make a car going the fastest speed in the world, you will not choose this design. The design came first, and they had to give it to the engineer, who had to work around the design without touching it.

That’s the story of the Veyron. And it is this combination that’s making a lot of engineering work, because you’re trying to achieve long life, quality, speed, luxury, easy to drive; you want to get everything and normally nobody can get everything. If you try to get all these things in the same car, it’s incredible. The Supersport will be a three-years’ warranty car. So it’s not like you buy a car then, OK, you use it and after one day everything is destroyed. And that’s where the engineering process is difficult and expensive.

With the Supersport the engineer said we need the design to follow our request in engineering –- more power, more speed more torque –- and the designer followed the engineering request in terms of downforce, cooling [e.g., those beautiful NACA ducts on top –- Ed.] and those kinds of things, and they made the car. So it was a little bit of a reverse process than the Veyron.

“The Veyron is an everyday car that you can drive as easily in traffic as at 268 mph.”

The target for the engineers was to make a Veyron with more power, more speed, more torque. It’s a completely different exercise than if you say, OK, I want to achieve just the world record, and you build a car with all the aerodynamics and the thinking in this kind of direction. The Veyron is an everyday car that you can drive as easily in traffic in first gear as on the other side, where you can go 268 miles per hour. With that car, with that engine, with that gearbox, we did around 30 preparation runs at around 260 mph, just to be sure. And this car will continue to be used as a test car. And I was saying to the [engineer], “But I will not get a new gearbox? A new engine?”

I would have preferred starting with something completely fresh, completely out of the box. But it is not a problem.

What It Feels Like To Break A Speed Record

It’s the same thing with the tires. These are the [production] tires. [Michelin PAX run-flats, 245/690 R 520 (front), 365/710 R 540 (rear) –- Ed.] When you’re doing this type of extreme speed, the life of the tire is very short, not just in terms of wear but in terms of structure. And the day before I did maybe five runs, and the next day, I had to use the same tires. And I was saying, “don’t you feel that we have to change tires?” And the engineer said no, we know we have some spare in the life of the tires, so we don’t need to change tires. For me, that was incredible, but also very, very stressful.

So what about 300 miles per hour. Are you down with that?

With the feeling I got last week, I will say, not for me. I think I gave everything that was possible.

What It Feels Like To Break A Speed Record
If you could have any Veyron you wanted in any color scheme, which would it be?

You cannot compare the Supersport, I mean to drive it, that’s something that would not make a Veyron stand out, which is incredible. I always say the Veyron is like another planet. But now I’m out of words to explain what the Supersport is. In the Veyron we have a series which is black carbon, only 15 cars, black with the orange inside [Sang Noir — Ed.] and the look of the black carbon, big wheels was the most sporty I have seen. That’s the one.

Opportunity

Jaycees can be called an organisation of opportunities. The opportunities available within Jaycees are co numerous, it could take a life time to grasp them all. Most members select those which cater to their particular needs and make the most of them.


Basically, there are five areas of opportunities within the organization individual, Management, Community, International and Business. Projects are conducted each area. As the members work on these projects, they encounter opportunities for total development.

Individual Opportunities
Opportunities for personal development are offered under the individual development area. Seminars, such as leadership in Action, Personal Dynamics, Effective Communication, and Goal Setting help members to speak effectively. Learn leadership skills, improve their communication abilities and enhance their personal development.

Management Opportunities
The management area provides Opportunity for the development of managerial skills through learning, LOM management. It deals with finances, records, recognition, membership growth, retention, marketing and public relations. Members have the chance to work on fund- raising projects.

Milestones of Jaycees

Each year new and exciting advancements and decisions are made in the organization which is today named Junior Chamber International (JCI). As it is impossible to list them all, the following are the events and years in which they occurred, which we truly regard as landmarks in the history of our worldwide organization.

 

1910
The organization began in St. Louis, Missouri, USA. The founder, Henry Giessenbier, had formed the Herculaneum Dance Club with the purpose of bringing about the social elevation of its members.

 

1915 
The first step towards the creation of the Jaycee movement was taken when 32 young men met at the Mission Inn in St. Louis on 13 October 1915 to form the Young Men's Progressive Civic Association with Giessenbier as its president.

 

1916
In August, the organization's name was changed to Junior Citizens, and it was at this time that the initials "JC" were first employed.

 

1920
On the 21st and 22nd January, the first national organization, the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce (USJCC) was formed. Twenty-nine clubs around the nation were in attendance and elected Henry Giessenbier as the first national president.

 

1920-44
The Jaycee movement crossed international borders. Organizations were formed in many countries including Canada, England, Mexico, New Zealand, Australia and Colombia. The Junior Chamber momement came to Canada in 1923 with the formation of its first chapter, the Young Men's Section of the Winnipeg Board of Trade.

 

Many actions were taken to form Junior Chamber International, including the creation of the International Executive Council of Junior Chambers of Commerce formed at the Olympic Games in 1932.

 

1944
Junior Chamber International was born in Mexico City, Mexico during 7 to 11 December. Witnesses to the birth of the organization were 30 delegates from North and Central America. Raul Garcia Vidal was elected the first president.

 

1946
In February, the first JCI World Congress was held in Panama City, Panama, with an attendance of 44 delegates from 16 countries. At this time, a Constitution was drafted. Also this year a young Jaycee member, Mr. C. William 'Bill' Brownfield, authored the Jaycee Creed.

1952
The JCI Senate was formed through the efforts of Phil Pugsley, the 1951 JCI president, at the 7th JCI World Congress in Melbourne, Australia.

 

1953
The first permanent World Headquarters was established at the United States Jaycees War Memorial Headquarters Building in Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Philip Van Slyck was hired as JCI's first full-time Secretary General.

 

1955 
The rapidly growing World Headquarters moved to its own building in Miami Beach, Florida, USA.

 

1969
The current World Headquarters was built in Coral Gables, Florida, USA to commemorate the 25th anniversary of Junior Chamber International.

 

1972
At the 38th JCI World Congress in Taipei, the organization's name was changed from Junior Chamber International to Jaycees International.

 

1983
Honorees were recognized at the first Outstanding Young Persons ceremony at the 38th JCI World Congress in Taipei, Taiwan.

 

1988
At the 39th JCI World Congress in Sydney, Australia, the organization's name was again changed from Jaycees International to Junior Chamber International.

 

1989
1989 was an historic year for JCI as services were extended to the Eastern Bloc countries of Estonia (USSR), Poland and Hungary.

JCI - Declaration of Principles

"We believe:
That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life;
That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations;
That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise;
That government should be of laws rather than of men;
That earth's great treasure lies in human personality;
And that service to humanity is the best work of life."

 

The year was 1946; the place, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, U.S.A.; the event, the United States Junior Chamber National Convention. Visitors came from Canada, Mexico, South America, Europe and the Philippine Islands. It was here that the idea of a JCI creed was born. The Creed is now called the JCI Declaration of Principles.

 

Past President of the Ohio Junior Chamber and National Vice President of the United States Junior Chamber C. William Brownfield realized at this convention that the organization did not have a creed. He was inspired by the devotion of Junior Chamber members "to the purpose of serving mankind in a thousand different ways, right down at the grass roots where freedom lives or dies."

 

Brownfield saw Junior Chamber as "the potential for a new force in the world, one capable of changing the balance between victory or defeat for our chosen way of life in a time of crisis."

 

The actual writing of the Declaration of Principles took place in July 1946 during a drive from Brownfield's hometown of Columbus, Ohio, to his coal mine in New Lexington, a journey of about 75 minutes. He started that journey with a firm conviction in his mind to work on the Declaration of Principles. It was during that trip that the following words came to mind and were put on paper:

 

The brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations.
Economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise.
Government should be of laws rather than of men.
Earth's great treasure lies in human personality.
Service to humanity is the best work of life.

 

In 1950 the first line, "We believe that faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life." was added.

 

Since it was written, Junior Chamber members all over the world recite the JCI Declaration of Principles at local, national and international meetings and functions. During that time there has been much discussion of the interpretation of this document. The author himself said, "Every Member is free to interpret it in the light of his own conscience."

 

The following interpretation is based on Brownfield's own views and what is commonly believed and understood to be the meaning of the Declaration of Principles to the organization.


BROWNFIELD’S INTERPRETATION OF THE JCI DECLARATION OF PRINCIPLES


"We believe . . . " Everyone must believe in some ideal, principle or philosophy. To believe is to practice what is believed to be true.

 

" . . . That faith in God gives meaning and purpose to human life . . . " "God" here does not refer to any specific religious God, but to a supreme omnipotence. It does not matter who or what your God is; the line is just saying that you must believe in something. Brownfield interpreted it in this way: "The Junior Chamber membership, drawn from many religious backgrounds, is united by a common bond of faith; that man lives by the will of (his/her) God, that God's will for man is good; and that the life worthwhile is lived in harmony with His eternal plan."

 

" . . . That the brotherhood of man transcends the sovereignty of nations . . . " This line breaks down all the boundaries that have been imagined by mankind. It simply means that all men and women are equal. It respects allegiance to one's country, but, at the same time, reinforces the idea that man is a citizen of the world. Brownfield put it this way: "Man made boundaries have been drawn and redrawn, separating the human race into many nations. But across these unnatural divisions there has been an intercourse in art, science, commerce and religion; evidence of man's universal brotherhood; proof that man himself, not his territorial divisions, is of basic worth."

 

" . . . That economic justice can best be won by free men through free enterprise . . . " The operative words here are " . . . can best be won . . . " Junior Chamber members believe that man should be free to use his skills and abilities to the limit in improving his economy. Brownfield expressed it this way: "Where economic improvement has been greatest, man has been free to follow his dream of making a personal fortune by doing something never done before, or by doing it better." He also said, " . . . the system of self development through private enterprise could be adapted with variations to suit local conditions in many parts of the world."

 

" . . . That government should be of laws rather than of men . . . “This simply means that no one should be above the law, and that the law should be the same for all people, no matter what status they hold in society. The government must be based on constitutional law, accepted and ratified by a majority of the people. The power to change laws and elect governments should remain in the hands of a majority of the people. Abraham Lincoln, the 16th President of the United States, spoke of a government “of the people, for the people, and by the people." This line crystallizes what President Lincoln was talking about so many decades ago. Brownfield expressed the meaning this way: "In a free society, the fundamental law is derived from the people. It is they who hold the final authority."

 

" . . . That earth's great treasure lies in human personality . . . " Every individual has a separate and unique personality. That is the main difference between humans and other creatures of the world. That uniqueness makes the human personality earth's greatest treasure. It cannot be duplicated nor can it be made. Brownfield's views on this line are: "True treasure lies in the hearts of men. There is about us a vast field of opportunity for cultivation of the human personality. It is not the quantity nor the length of life that gives it zest, but the quality of living, the achievement we make in terms of human progress."

 

" . . . And that service to humanity is the best work of life." This final tenet of the Declaration of Principles is the logical culmination of the preceding lines. A person who believes in the Declaration of Principles will most definitely find service to humanity to be the best work of life. Note the word humanity. Brownfield's interpretation to this line is, "The life lived unselfishly grows richer, deeper and fuller. Joy is more enduring and peace of mind, more certain. The world looks at the contribution such a life has made and marks the one who lived it as a benefactor of the race; yet he knows in truth the greater benefit has been his own."

 

No matter what a member's interpretation of the Declaration of Principles may be, he or she should always practice what he or she believes. Many unsuccessful attempts have been made to change the Declaration of Principles, but it has prevailed through the years and continues be the covenant that holds the organization together. Many members have made the Declaration of Principles their guide in life.

THE BEGINNING OF JAYCEES Henry Gissenbier, a young man from St. Loius, Misouri, U.S.A felt that young people acting in a voluntary capacity could fashion new standard of life of their communities. On October 1915; he called a meeting, attended by 32 men, who left up an organization called the Young Men’s Progressive Civic Association. It was devoted to community betterment. The vigor and imagination of the youthful group attached the admiration of the St. Louis Chamber of Commerce, which on February 11, 1918, asked the young men to consider the title “ Junior Chamber of Commerce” so was the name born. The movement spread, so that by June 1920, the United States Junior Chamber of Commerce marched on to Canada, New Zealand.


Over to Asia, over Europe and to Africa. In 1944, in Mexico City, the world organization, the Junior Chamber International was formed and since that date, JCI has fired the imagination of hundreds of thousands of young men across the face of the earth. In 1972, the World Organization officially adopted the name, “Jaycees International”. The Origin of Junior Chamber can be traced as formed the Herculaneium Dance Club with the main objective being the preservation of conservative dance style. Five years later, in 1915, Colonel H. N Morgan, a prominent St. Louis citizen, inspired the members of the dance club to become more involved in civic issues. Giessenbier and 32 other young men formed the Young Men’s Progressive Civic Association (YMPCA) on October 13, 1915. This organization grew to a membership of 750 in less than five months.


THE FIRST WORLD CONGRESS, two years later, In February of 1946, the first World Congress was held in Panama City. This Congress was attended by 44 delegates from different countries. The international organization was formally constituted, a temporary constitution was approved, and the word “Commerce” was omitted from the official name. Erasmo Chambonnet of Panama was elected the second JCI President at that Congress, and Australia and Canada were officially affiliated. In 1948 the JCI Creed was officially adopted at the IV JCI World Congress in Rio de Janeiro, and in 1952 a permanent Secretariat was established. In 1972 the name was changed to Jaycees International; however, 1n 1988 the name was changed back to Junior Chamber International.
