Bottecchia Cycle Technology A Glimpse Of The Past And Today

Being a pioneer in the bike and cycle trade industry, Bottecchia has developed ground breaking technology molded to both of its racing and transport model bikes. Bottecchia cycles are not only classy pieces of kit but also well designed with very good equipment at a very reasonable price. The technology behind every bike is taken from the concept of revolutionary practices with the rider and his/her environment in mind. Thanks to its know-how, combining tradition and advanced technology, the company’s purpose is to be also in the new millennium a point of reference for the cycling sector.

It all began when Ottavio Bottecchia began working with Teodoo Carnielli and starts manufacturing racing bikes, making use of his knowledge he acquired from the Tour de France in 1926. In 1930, after Bottecchia’s death, the Carnielli family takes the business forward and makes Bottecchia a well-known bike brand name in Europe, and exporting to the US with great success. On the whole, the business expanded under the Carnielli family. Throughout the years, the small Carnielli workshop gradually develops into an industry. And there are around 100 workers who build Bottecchia bikes between 1930 and 1940. At the end of the sixties, the old Teodoro passes on the baton to his sons Guido and Mario. In 1973, the worlds first folding bike was produced and it was very successful in Europe. Yet in 1997, Bottecchia was acquired by the Turato family who has had two generations of history in bike manufacture the Cicli Esperia. In 2006, the group sells over 50,000 bikes throughout Europe and looks to expand outside of Europe considering the US, Asia and the Pacific. If truth be told, there are already over 50,000 bikes that were sold in Europe at that point. It was also, in 2006 when the cycles assign exclusive distributors in Australia and New Zealand. Today, the company produces around 70 models in order to meet every kind of demand, and its earnings increases year by year.

Over the many decades, these bikes have a particular importance in the history of cycling. The experience gained through these years helped the company to develop innovative technology for cycling professionals and casual riders alike. The group’s bike technology now presents a collection of more than 40 models: racing bikes, mountain bikes, “verde natura” and “city” line, super light and junior bikes. New and upcoming models includes stunning designs perfect for racing, flat bar, city living and mountain bikes.

In conlcusion, the company’s aim is to introduce new interesting ideas in cycling, with flair, exceptional bicycle design, passion and meet every emerging demands for road and off road bike experience.

Astral Projection Science – The 2 SHOCKING Facts About Astral Travel You MUST Not Miss

Let’s talk for a few minutes about the SCIENCE behind astral projection. Why? Because if you truly want to take the art and science of OBE’s seriously….you’ve got to embrace the science behind it’s study.

In my view? It’s not good enough to talk about these things in purely science fiction, fantastical terms. If we are TRULY going to take the evolution of human consciousness in the direction it needs to go…..we have to embrace the REAL facts that only rigorous science and study can offer.

Fact #1 – Remote Viewing & Non Local “Awareness” is FINALLY Being Accepted as Fact (By Serious Skeptics as Well)

This is NOT a small fact, either. Richard Wiseman, one of the most famous skeptics in the world, recently (in the Summer of 2009) FINALLY acknowledged what many of us have been saying for well over a decade: Remote Viewing (or seeing at a distance) is not only a real phenomena, it has been PROVEN to be true well beyond any reasonable “burden” that science accepts something to be factual. (Wiseman famously said that while he believes this is true – he still won’t accept “how” it happens as “out of body” – causing yet another uproar amongst the serious researchers who have demonstrated the OBE, remote viewing and astral projection in the real world repeatedly)

Fact #2 – Your First REAL OBE will Forever Change Your Life

Yes, it’s true….having a personal experience with the “supernatural surfboard” will forever change what you believe possible. You’ll FINALLY believe in a soul. And in a transcendent purpose to YOUR life. It’s ONLY amazing, first hand experience that can give you this gift….and if you haven’t had your first, the time to it is now! (nothing will ever quite feel the same once you do)

(and there is NOTHING that will give you the freedom of thought, mind and spirit than learning there is FAR more to your life than meets the eye!)

Warning! Don’t get scammed by another “fake” Psychic EVER Again!

LG Sciences Advances Creatine Science

There are many Creatine’s on the market today. How do you choose the most effective? LG Sciences has released an advanced Creatine Complex that is light years ahead of it’s competition. Cold Fusion EX.

With all of the choices out there how can we decide what is the best form if such a thing actually exists. Creatine is an amino acid that is naturally occurring in the body and provides cellular energy and a host of other benefits to both the bodybuilder and general health enthusiast. In fact creatine is even being looked at to provide increased energy and wellness benefits for the elderly. It may provide heart benefits and also increase mental acuity for people that have diseases like Alzheimer’s. Creatine is responsible for turning ADP into ATP which is your body’s main energy supply in the mitochondria. ATP is split to form ADP (losing a phosphate to create energy) and Creatine Phosphate “hangs around” to recharge the ADP molecule so it can be used to create energy again. Any Creatine is converted to Creatine Phosphate in the body, but oddly enough taking Creatine Phosphate as a supplement never really gave the kind of results that were achieved by many other creatine types, so it was effectively scrapped. Creatine is the base product for any bodybuilder looking to increase size and strength. It adds well to any other product and the only thing more basic than creatine is a protein supplement. Creatine helps the muscle cell hold more water, which can expand the fascia of the muscle increasing its volume. So, creatine is useful for strength and stamina by recharging the muscle energy system, it also increases new muscle cells (monohydrate for sure) and increases pumps for a muscle stretching effect. It is the most popular and beneficial supplement ever for bodybuilders.

Here is a basic list of just some of the Creatines on the market:

Creatine Monohydrate this is the original version sold back in the 80’s for improving strength and stamina for weightlifters. It is tried and tested, however it has been replaced with newer and fancier creatine molecules. I HIGHLY suggest supplements still contain some creatine monohydrate for one big reason. Creatine monohydrate is the only form proven in scientific studies to create new muscle cells. There are many studies showing Creatine Monohydrate increases the formation of new muscle cells and one important study showing that other forms of creatine do not have this effect!

Creatine Malate this is creatine bound to malic acid. The preferred form is DiCreatine Malate since that is the only form that is possible, the other forms (tricreatine malate) are usually just creatine monohydrate mixed with straight malic acid. The supposed benefit of Creatine Malate is reduced bloating and increased endurance, since malate is involved in increasing cellular energy by being part of the krebs cycle. Overall, this ingredient has many years of solid anecdotal support and I feel it is a good addition to any creatine blend.

Bike Sailing 21st Century Innovation Or A Science Project Gone Bad

With ozone-layer depletion a great issue nowadays, inventors are developing new ideas. The transportation sector in particular is getting all the bad publicity. And as carbon monoxide emissions become the focus of tighter regulations both in the US and Europe, the race for eco-friendly vehicles is on.

One of the inventors who rely on the powers of Mother Nature is Vladimir Zam. His wind-powered bike is designed with a triangular sail. The big question is: how will the bike run?

The design for US Patent 6932368 calls for a sail attachment to be linked to the bicycle harnesses wind to move the bicycle forward. A wind receiving sail is available at the attachment, which can generate the wind needed to power the bike.

Would the addition of a sail attachment qualifies it an invention? It looks more like a science project gone bad. Seriously, the design for this patent is an awkward cross between a sail boat and a bicycle. Considering that the patent retains most of the features of a regular bike, the sail attachment just complicate matters. Whereas, people could simply rely on their two feet to forward a bicycle.

Imagine yourself driving this thing around in the middle of the metropolis traffic jam. That is provided you could survive peddling a long the streets without being dragged through your sail by speeding vehicles. On the upside, well you could make money using this bike to money. For instance, why dont you convince your local pizza delivery store to advertise on your sail. Youll just have to capitalize on your endurance and be able to bike for three acres or until you drop dead, whichever comes first.

So what do you guys think? Is this an innovative invention or just a product of a man having too much time on his hands?

Cool And Unique Science Projects You Can Work On

Unique science project ideas you can experiment on include: making your own fossil; how fogs form; gravity and the plant growth; processed food and the amount of gas; and level of pollution by day.

It’s science fair time again in Middle School. You don’t want to show the same project as you did last year like the very common mechanical volcano or the solar system models. This year, plan on something new and fascinating, check on the following ideas.

Make your own fossil

Demonstrate how fossils form. You can make use of cardboard, plaster of paris, leaver, water, and petroleum jelly. This method is to demonstrate how fossils form in mud. Mix the water and plaster of paris, spread the mixture on a cardboard. Cover the leaf with petroleum jelly and place it on the plaster. Allow it to dry then remove the leaf when the plaster dries, you now have a model for a fossil.

Describe how fog forms

Explain the 2 kinds of fogs, the advection and radiation. Advection fog forms from warm moist air blown inward. The radiation fog is the warm, moist air that forms too close to the ground. Create your own fog using two bottles with narrow necks. Fill 1 bottle with hot water and the other one with cold water then place an after several minutes place an ice cube on the mouth of each bottles. See what happens after.

Gravity and growth of plants

This experiment tackles on how plants know which direction grow. For the experimentation, observe the position of the stems and leaves of a house plant over a period of a week while laying it on it’s side and leaning on a book. Plants contain a chemical called auxin causing it to elongate. Gravity pulls it downward, the cells elongate where there is auxin accumulated, therefore causes the stem to grow upward.

Processed food and the amount of gas

The purpose is to determine whether processed food tend to produce more gas. Obtain small pieces of different kinds of processed food and place each in a test tube. A a small amount of distilled white vinegar in each tube then shake for 30 seconds. Fit a balloon on the opening of the test tube. Leave it for eight hours then measure the width of the balloons after.

Level of pollution by day

This project aims to answer if there is a relationship of the time of day or week and the amount of air pollution. Use different microscope slides and coat it with petroleum jelly. Select different places where you can place your slides and label it. Expose all slides at the same time frame daily. Collect the slides after then view it under the microscope. Observe which slides accumulate most particles.

Be creative and enthusiastic in your approach. With the right science project and confidence, that science fair ribbon would be yours.
