Formel 1 - Neue Technik

[ad]

Die Formel 1 kann Systeme wie KERS durchaus perfektionieren wovon dann die Serienproduktion profitiert. Ich würde an Mosley's Stelle nach dem Motor alls offen lassen! Was auch immer man für ein Getriebe verwenden will. CVT/IVT (stufenlose Getriebe) könnte die F1 verfeinern oder sogar neue Konzepte hervorbringen! Ich denke da an leistungsverzweigte Getriebe. Diese haben sich in Traktoren (ich weiss was ihr jetzt denkt...) bereits profiliert. Fendt setzt fast gänzlich auf dieses Konzept. Ob halbautomatisch geschaltet wird oder gar nicht mehr macht doch eh keinen grossen Unterschied.

At the Dentist

[ad]

First time at the dentist after 5 years! I had a lose filling in one of my molars so I had to go eventually. The timing wasn't bad because I just got my health insurance from the company (got it after 3 working for 3 months). So I have to just pay 20% with a limit of $1000 a year.
I went to the practice of Dr. Shwetlana Vohra (HappyTheeth.ca) which is just around the corner here in Aldergrove.

First appointment, June 25th 2008: Complete Exam, X-Rays (9 films), Scaling (2 units), Prophy, Typical Flouride = $48.16 ($240.8 without insurance) + $25 (once a year fee for whatever).

Second appoinment, June 26th 2008: Perm. Ant. A/Etch/Bond3Suf :twisted: , Perm. Bicus. Acid Etch/B4, Perm. Molar Acid Etch 3Sur, Gingivectomy U Sextant :-o = $136.62 (683.1 without insurance)

The freezing (local anesthetic) was not bad at all! She wiggled my lip while she gave me the shot so I didn't really feel anything! She couldn't wiggle the pallette so she said this is going to hurt. But it was not bad either. Good JOB!

Third appoinment, July 5th 2008: Prm. Bicus. Acdetch/Bond1, Perm. Molar Acid Etch 2Sur  = $58.17 ($290.85 without insurance)
