Today, the aftermarket lineup of Ford cylinder heads has plenty of castings from which to choose. These Ford cylinder heads all feature between and cc intake port volumes and offer excellent performance potential over even the best production iron 5.

As with our small-block Chevy head test published in the Sept. We evaluated each head on the flow bench, average overall power, and we calculated average horsepower-per-dollar. So get comfortable, slip on your Ford-colored glasses, and hang on. Edelbrock heads are available in two different versions with either 1.

The E-street came in second in peak horsepower and a very close third in average horsepower and torque. The Edelbrock heads showed a little weakness in the midrange, something that could probably be rectified by adding a degree back cut to the intake valve.

Combine Edelbrock quality with excellent power and a highly competitive price, and the E-Street Edelbrock heads strike us as an excellent choice. Ford Racing X The Ford Racing X head is not the casting that comes on the Boss crate engine, but its affordable price made it a natural choice for this test.

The Ford head uses a net lash design that makes the valvetrain non-adjustable. We used Comp roller rockers for the remaining heads to level the playing field, but if you are considering a set of these heads, be aware that the rockers and fulcrums need to be considered as well.

The Ford heads did well during the testing, making a peak of hp. While the average power was down compared to the TFS, RHS, and Edelbrock heads, the power is still acceptable, especially if you are more interested in a nice pair of aluminum heads rather than ultimate power. Peak power was good at hp and torque is also reasonable. These are certainly worthy of attention at this excellent price. The heads offered an excellent midrange power curve behind only the Twisted Wedge casting between 4, and 5, rpm.

RHS shipped the heads with what should have been a sufficient single 1. Nevertheless, for a street engine, this head delivers excellent midrange power. Its biggest weakness may be the price. It was the most expensive of all the heads we tested. The heads also required custom-length Comp Cams pushrods to compensate for the relocated valves.

Once those two tasks were completed, the heads delivered the best peak horsepower and torque numbers of the entire test, knocking down an excellent hp at 6, rpm.

The Twisted Wedge heads also had the strongest horsepower curve above 4, rpm of all the heads tested. The only caveat to all this is the Twisted Wedge heads do limit valve lift 0. World Products Windsor, Jr. World contributed the lone cast-iron head to our Ford small-block test. This head is intended for a flat-tappet camshaft, so it was outfitted with a small-diameter spring that might have limited its performance in the midrange slightly.

This minor tune up would really improve the flow curve and add a measureable amount of torque. If weight is a consideration, keep in mind that these iron castings weigh considerably more than the rest of the aluminum heads.

If you are looking for a set of World aluminum heads, you can find them at Bill Mitchell Products. Peaks and Averages We should stress that during testing we optimized each set of heads for timing and jetting and then ran the engine with two near identical runs, which were then averaged to come up with the final power numbers.

While peak horsepower is a quick evaluator, we prefer to use average power in these comparisons because it always produces a better picture of overall performance. Not only did the TFS heads produce the most peak power but also the best average torque and horsepower. The RHS heads produced the next closest average horsepower and torque, with the Edelbrock and Ford heads very close behind. Trick Flow Specialties Twisted Wedge. We did this to expand the scale to show the differences in power near peak horsepower.

While the TFS head looks much stronger than the Edelbrock version above 5, rpm, the maximum differential is only 13 hp at 5, rpm. It is more important to evaluate the entire length of this horsepower graph.

When you do that, you can see that the TFS head did substantially better than all the other heads from about 4, rpm and above. You will certainly feel that in the car. Dollar Per Horsepower Peak power numbers are always fun to throw around, but car crafters are also very astute at determining what all that power will cost.

To minimize the grief of doing the math yourself, we averaged the horsepower between 3,—6, rpm and then divided that into the cost of a pair of heads.

The winner in this evaluation is almost always the least expensive head just because of the way the math formula works.

This particular evaluation only works, however, if lowest cost is the highest priority. If it is, then you know what you need to do. But for perhaps a majority of enthusiasts, this evaluation may be too simplistic. Conclusion Like we said, if best power or least price is your only concern, then the decision is easy.

If ultimate power is not the most important point, then you could easily choose any of these heads and make a good decision.

That may or may not make your ultimate choice any easier, but if so, you can thank us later. And, yes, this next bit is unashamed self-promotion, but the next time some lame dude spouts off about how he gets all his information off the Web—ask him to show you the last time he read a comprehensive test like this from a free Web-based publication. Car Craft is one of the few magazines that is willing to do this kind of extensive and expensive technical testing for our readers.

What does SWF mean? - SWF Definition - Meaning of SWF -

I don't know what it was about today that just sucked the motivation out of me, but something sure did and I wanted to talk to Will about it before it started to affect my performance. Maybe it's the type of terrain reminding me of all those awesome Boy Scout campouts or maybe it's the picture of me and Erika in my hat reminding me of how she's waiting on me. Maybe it's that I haven't gotten any mail in a while or maybe it's something so simple as having to carry the radio up the mountain this morning.

Either way, I was hurting pretty bad tonight and church services and the talk with Will helped a lot. Gotta stay focused so my girl can pin that tab on me April 7th.

It sure is beautiful up here in the mountains. At night you can see every single star in the sky. We had hot chow brought out to us, but by the time we sat down to eat the high winds on the mountaintop had already made it cold. I'm feeling better about life in general this morning than I did last night. That talk with Will helped a lot. Today we did rappelling and climbing all morning.

Quote of the morning: Yeah, not so much. Later on we started some pretty legit climbing. The first one was what's called a "balance climb" and you just get up anyway you can.

Footholds, hand holds, mantles, chimneys, fist jams, finger jams, etc. Anything goes and everything is required to make it to the top. The second climb was a "buddy climb" where the lead climber goes up the rock, attaching himself to anchors as he goes and when he runs out of rope for the belayman to use he anchors off and then belays his buddy up to that point. As the trail climber goes up he follows the path of anchor points the lead climber emplaced and when he gets up to his buddy they repeat the steps until they reach the top.

He got rid of the clouds and we could see for miles in every direction. It was a pretty incredible view from the top of Mt. Yonah and I'm extremely glad we were able to come up. Sometimes Ranger School really isn't all that bad. We footmarched back down the mountain around and loaded up on trucks again for the hour and half ride back to Camp Merrill. We had to fit "2 tons of oats in a 1 ton truck" so a few people didn't have actual seats to put their butt in.

That meant a few of us were "forced" to "endure" the ride back while laying on top of the pile of rucks. I got to stretch out and get comfortable and get a pretty solid nap on the ride back, but I earned it carrying that damn radio up and back down Mt. I had one of the best MREs in the world for dinner tonight. Oh man, is that good!

And it comes with a mint chocolate cookie AND a vanilla dairy shake! I'm just glad today was a lot better for me than last night. After finishing up tiedowns I finally got to sleep at I volunteered to help recite the creed and had to do the 3rd stanza. I will always keep myself mentally alert, physically strong, and morally straight and I will shoulder more than my share of the task, whatever it may be, one hundred percent, and then some.

After another spectacular blueberry pancake breakfast we moved to the "classroom" bays to start our classes on platoon operations. The RIs covered platoon attack, patrol base, recon, and react to contact. We did practical exercises the rest of the day and without the sun keeping the cold from being unbearable it would have been a not so great experience.

On the plus side, anything is better than Camp Darby. We did rehearsal after rehearsal after rehearsal until dark and then we practiced setting up a patrol base at night. Normally that's no big deal, but the RIs decided to add to the situation by making us do it on a steep hillside. We screwed around and tried to come up with some platoon SOPs after that but it was a waste of time because everyone was falling asleep and no one cared to think much about our "standard way" of conducting water resupply, for example.

Finally got to bed after moving equipment within the squad and racked out about I'm starting to get that feeling of almost constant weariness again. It'd be nice to get some mail soon. Same formations as before. Classes on how to do a platoon ambush all morning and then we did practical exercises all day again.

We practiced the ambush, tactical loading of trucks for transpo to an objective, and I can't wait for all this to be over. Everyone's motivation level is dropping at an exponential rate and we've been having relatively perfect weather! What's going to happen when we're on patrol in the Chattahoochee National Forest climbing some unGodly steep hill and it's 33 degrees and raining?

I'm starting to get extremely scared about this phase. There are some extremely squared away guys I went to WP with that are in my class now because they recycled from the last one.

Not very many of them can give solid reasons for why they recycled. God, I miss Erika. I can't stop thinking about her and I'm worried it could affect me more than a little. I feel like a scared kid sometimes, actually most times of the day, but during others I have all the confidence in the world about moving on to Florida.

I don't know what I would do if I somehow got recycled. Something needs to happen soon or I'm gonna go crazy. It's always all good, but it could definitely be better right now. On a more upbeat note, when we came out of the woods last night after our night occupation of the patrol base the night sky was incredible. Being in the middle of nowhere has it's perks.

I sure do miss normal life. Once again, wake up, formation with rucks, breakfast. Our company was first in the chow hall from the BN so we had about 30 minutes of "free time" after the pancakes before classes started. Big mistake on all our parts. Instead of flipping out and losing his mind he just called the student platoon sergeants together and said this was our freebie. We had a class in the morning on how to conduct a platoon raid and did practical exercises and rehearsals the rest of the day.

Our squad was in a MUCH better mood this morning than we all were yesterday. I think a big part of it is that Will and I decided enough was enough. I think the exact words were, "Dude, this place is sucking the life out of me. We gotta do something about this. The hell with it. Yeah, this sucks, but it'll just be another story for your grandkids.

I don't know how much longer this weather can hold, but it sure would be sweet if it stayed like this for the two FTX's coming up. From what I've heard of past classes, that's asking the impossible.

For the final exercise or rehearsal of the day I was tasked out to be the platoon sergeant. I'll just say that it was a "learning experience".

Half of the comments from the RIs, in the discussion about the PLT's performance during the mission, were directed at me, but I'm honestly not too worried. I know how good I am. We're almost halfway to graduation. I wonder what Erika is doing right now? I went to sick call again this morning because the poison ivy I got in Darby is still not gone. It's died off my arms and right thigh, but now it's spread to the back and palms of my hands and since I ran out of meds to kill it 2 days ago, I decided to pay the docs a visit.

I got hooked up with some meds and went back to where my platoon was. I skipped something that happened before that was worthy of mention. Before our class we had a briefing in the gym where we got an "intel dump" concerning the information pertinent to our upcoming field exercise.

After that we had a briefing on IEDs and while most of it was outdated stuff we had already seen, he showed more than a few propaganda videos captured in Iraq of insurgents detonating explosives. The videos weren't edited at all and really started to get to me after a while. I mean, to think that within months or so I'll be in that environment is spooky. No, it's scary as hell and all I can do is expect to make it home. I know I'm getting way ahead of myself, I mean I haven't even graduated Ranger School yet, but to be in an environment like that where absolute chance is the governing factor?

Anyway, the last video he showed us was one of different clips of high-speed units in the Army doing their thing and with the Last Of The Mohicans soundtrack playing in the background. It was a definite pick-me-up. This school is crazy like that: Everyone is pretty much bipolar now and we all just have to deal with everyone's mood swings. One minute we're sitting around laughing our butts off at the dumbest stuff you could imagine and the next we're all pissed off and hating life and usually taking it out on each other.

Another day, another dollar. One step closer to that tab. I really hope I get some mail tonight. None has come my way since I left Darby and got here to Camp Merrill. I wonder if my family realizes that my address changes every time I move to the next phase. Life goes on and I've got my boys in the squad to get me from day to day. Just before dinner in the Mess Hall we did "static load training" on the helicopter landing pad here at Merrill. Getting on and off those Blackhawks made me wonder what Erika is up to.

Probably doing something with helicopters, too, I suppose. After dinner the first chain of command for graded patrols was appointed and it's now officially game time here in the Mountain Phase of Ranger School. I'm sure they'll do a fine job. During a lull in the "action" tonight I was talking to George Kalandadze and apparently he thinks pretty highly of me and my abilities.

He said that once he gets back to Georgia he'll be promoted rather quickly and that sometime in the future he would want me to come to his country and help modernize his Army. Ha, I was offered a job tonight to be an advisor to another country's army. Still don't know what to think of that, but for now I just need to concentrate on the next 10 days and then the next 20 and BAM!!! April 7th, here we come. I got a ton of mail last night. Everyone is doing well and had great things to say to put a smile on my face.

Today is our first of 9 days of graded patrols. Our PL is a bit shaky, but we're behind him and hopefully it's good enough to get him a GO. The planning phase is a helluva lot different than the execution part, but it'll be all good. I want to get my GO out of the way so I can worry about bigger and better things. During the movement part of our patrol some rather comedic and potentially catastrophic things happened.

The PL this morning got us lost and when he tried a U-turn he ended up taking the most bizarre route I've ever seen. A little while later one of the RIs threw an Artillery simulator and started about square feet of forest on fire. We found out later it flared back up, as I forecasted it would, and burned up a considerable amount of National Forest. At a stream crossing, we had to walk across a log and everyone made it except for our medic walking with us. We kept walking for awhile and yeah, I'm in Ranger School, but this is the way to do it.

I mean walking through the Chattahoochee National Forest. It's an ass-kicker at times with the hills and mountains, but it sure is nice up here. Almost worth the climb with rucks and weapons and special equipment just to enjoy the view over a random valley. Of course, I'm laying in the prone position pulling security in the ORP, but you gotta take what you can get, no? On a sadder note, my good buddy George from Georgia the country , might be in some trouble. They had told us on day one that anyone caught hording food from phase to phase or within a phase might be kicked out for an SOR Serious Observation Report offense.

We'll see what happens. He's too good of a guy to go back home tabless for something this stupid. Our ambush didn't go all that well and we got compromised because people just walked into their positions instead of being sneaky and low-crawling.

We got an ass-chewing from the RIs and then we did it again. Of course, this meant we only got about an hour of sleep each. I know I'll be able to do anything required of me today, but I haven't felt this exhausted in I dunno, a few weeks, ha.

Today's new chain of command took over and received their mission and then got started on their planning. The incoming RIs for the day went nuts on a few kids in the patrol base when they found them either not wearing their gear, eating on the line, sleeping, or a combo of any of the above. They made us take all our snivel gear off and we laid there on the ground pulling security and freezing our butts off for another 3 hours while the student leadership planned for the mission.

The cool part about that is it meant we weren't going to be wearing rucksacks because it was a movement to contact. A standard electronic interface between a computer's data bus and its disks.

Affiliated with the AFA. There are other debating entries in this glossary. It's sponsored by Soros 's OSI and its over two dozen member nations are basically all the former Warsaw Pact countries and their fragments and Haiti. I'll have to look into how that turned out.

I imagine it won't do much harm, and if Soros wants to spend his money on these games, well, it's his money now. But logical thinking is not the problem. These nations regularly produce ten-year-old grand masters who whup our ass in chess, okay?

And formal rhetorical skills are not exactly hallmarks of the leadership cadres of the triumphant democratic West, either. The problem of contending religions has only ever been humanely solved by tolerance, and tolerance is not logical, and not clearly defensible on principles, unless the principles are cooked in advance.

Tolerance is merely peaceable and reasonable. On perfectly sound principles, it may be irrational. In that case, sound leadership requires noble hypocrisy and fluent dissembling. Making a successful civil polity is a bit like making wine.

It requires many small ingredients, as Soros understands, and balance which no one can impose, and it is not easily accelerated. In the Defense of Earth and Animals. That's what I said already! That's just what it means here. Usually it means something different.

Idem is often abbreviated id. In Spanish , the word is used more widely in ordinary speech. Their homepage is competently constructed, and it is no longer a sickly shade of green.

There ought to be one in Pakistan called Iderabad. I did, did I? No, I began with only a sensible, reasonable skepticism, and I was gravely disappointed. Buy this book and read all the juicy details now! As explained on the IDIC page: Miranda Jones and Mr. Concord, as much as discord, requires the presence of at least two different notes.

The brotherhood of man is an ideal based on learning to delight in our essential differences, as well as learning to recognize our similarities. The IDIC symbol is a union of a plain circle and triangle, uniting to produce the beautiful gemstone in the middle.

The circle represents infinite, nature, woman, etc; the triangle can represent the finite, art, man, etc. IDIC remains the simplest, purest, most powerful idea in Star Trek, an idea that has clear implications for our own times. If they say so, I guess. Many and to some degree all of the episodes were morality plays about tolerance.

Spock was, however, the child of a mixed marriage human-Vulcan. Spock took after his dad. And he needs a shave. The real heroism of Star Trek was his social daring, taking altruistic risks in a market governed by almighty ratings. If only more directors would make movies and TV shows that honored their progressive beliefs rather than pandering to popular tastes, the world would be a better place -- because people would get off the couch and do something.

Individually Designed Interdepartmental Major. The word is derived from the Latin idiota one of those rare first-declension nouns of male gender. I can find no evidence that this earliest meaning was ever a normal sense of the derived word in any modern Western European language. In particular, I find no evidence of this sense for German in any of the dictionaries I have to hand, including the ten-volume Duden and the thirty-three-volume Grimm etymological dictionary.

A fair translation of the title in context would be The Conflict of the [Academic] Disciplines. That's the trouble with learning too much: The book is celebrated by Kantophiles as a heroic stand for freedom of speech in the academic context -- i.

Perhaps we can say instead that Kant's Idiot is a nonce sense. Refers to a kind of contract entered into by US government agencies that sounds like an option to buy.

I plan to return to this entry at some point in time, and add some information. I am slimier than pond scum. My pig-headed idiocy prevents me from admitting the God-given truth of your blazingly clear wisdom, and I'm going to be sanctimonious about it into the bargain. Bizarrely, I will also misinterpret your witty but courteous clarifications as vicious personal attacks upon my nefarious character, much though I deserve them. I fry gerbils alive for breakfast, but I prefer the taste of plastic and moist cardboard.

Newsgroup and listserv usage. Well if you don't know, I can't help you. I mean, what are you saying here? Could you be more specific? Your paratactics are getting on my nerves. I don't consider myself a vain person. Other people consider me a vain person. This looks like a job for Space Janitor!

If you take a good look at the Milky Way I won't say a good close look from someplace within it but toward the edge from earth, say , you'll notice that the very middle is not as bright as the edges.

That's because of all the IDP. Often the politics of resentment. Is there a bit of this at this entry? An extensive tutorial is available online. A computer-games industry association. Most of their stuff is in Adobe Acrobat files. In any case, an IDU is a self-medicator and a prime candidate for comorbidity. Maybe it's technically more correct, but I'm unaware of any common drug of abuse that is injected intramuscularly. I dunno I am stupidly ignorant. Frequently ironic in intention, if not in reception.

A book described at the manual transmission entry contains this exchange: How far is it to Fairfax? Does this road go to Fairfax? Say, you don't know much, do you? I once lived in Fairfax County, Virginia, but what this reminds me of is an experience I had biking in rural France. I was on a language-related mission: I biked to the town of Condom to buy condoms, just so I could say I had done so. I have done so. A protective amnesia has settled over the period when I learned the necessary vocable preservatif.

I do recall that it involved pantomime. On the way back, after I got lost, I received directions in sign language. You are very far from Chateau de Bonas. I also encountered nasty little bicycle-chasing dogs, and also ruminants. The ruminants did not give very energetic chase, but they acted like they had never seen a bicycle before. Many of them trotted up to their fences to get a better look. French cows seem to be a different breed than American cows -- either more nearsighted, or more intellectually active or both, conforming to stereotype as well as recent research on humans.

The fences looked too flimsy to detain any seriously intrigued bovine. This concern became more acute over the last dozen km, which I had to walk on account of a flat tire, pushing the borrowed old cast-iron three-speed beside me, in the rain, in the dark all uphill again! Because the road was narrow and I had no lights, after it got dark I got back to Chateau de Bonas long after dinner I would push over to the side of the road whenever I heard a car coming. Back in the 40's or 50's, Vance Packard wrote an interesting popular report on studies of animal intelligence, issued under a couple of titles, one of which was Animal IQ.

I understand that why dogs bark is an open and active research question. Presumably, why cows low is similarly unknown, but I suspect that they lack the intelligence to engage in very interesting communication. A drug used in the treatment of AIDS. Some others are mentioned further below. Some special cases are still left over e. For more English spelling help, see this rule list.

There is a similar, much less severe problem in German. Here's the Irish page of an X. A large language family that includes most of the languages of Europe and northern India. The name is taken from the two extreme ends of the region over which the language group had spread before the age of rapid European colonial expansion. By a similar reasoning, German philologists and linguists also call this the Indogermanischen language family, presumably since the languages spoken at the extreme NW end of the region are Germanic.

Indo-European is the official language family of the Stammtisch Beau Fleuve. Nevertheless, we concede that Chinese is a major world language. Unix curses have also been uttered. LookSmart has a short page of IE links. Old name of what today calls itself the Endometriosis Association.

What happens if you forget to pay your bill again , before they even restore ISDN service from the last time it was cancelled. Having the acronym spelled out in French like that is a material help to that large group of technically trained people who don't read English.

I mean, conversely, if it were only in French, sure I'd be at a complete loss to know what it meant. I also appreciate the highway signs in Ontario; they allow me to see double and feel disoriented without DWI. Of course, I'm just kidding. Everybody realizes that the only reason the acronym appears in two languages is to assuage British resentment of French cultural success.

Look, in the twentieth century Britain was forced to give up a world-wide empire that extended to every inhabited continent, whereas France lost a much smaller area mostly restricted to Africa and Asia. The glory days of Karl Marx at the British Museum are long past. Freud's granddaughter hosted an interview programme on the Beeb whose lame attempt to epater le bourgoise was using a bed for a couch. Oh, it's crushingly hard to be British these days, when your long-time rival is so triumphant.

Just as GPIB does. The next issue's preview is on the web. A publication of The Electron Devices Society. Back in the 's, one IEG that was so designated was a panel of technical experts under the leadership of R.

Not to be confused with Interface Engineering Inc. Changed name in to just ELI. IERAL has a team of professional economists I'm translating somewhat slavishly from this page dedicated full time to research. The research is meant to contribute to the realization of a prosperous nation with a social configuration that offers equality of opportunity to its inhabitants and with an economy that is integrated, dynamic, and efficient that will assure a continuous improvement in the quality of life of all Argentines.

In other words, they're a think tank that will always be in opposition to the Peronist government. But the main Peronist party still holds a majority in both houses of Congress. Okay, back to your regularly scheduled entry. I suppose that the reason it feels like back-translation is that Latin American economists study in the US or at least from textbooks written in English. Since its founding, Argentina has experienced a struggle between centripetal unitarist, bonaerense and centrifugal federal forces.

Okay, it's in charge of deciding when to make time jump, as explained at the UTC entry. They also have a longer official name: Executive committee of the IETF.

You shouldn't get the wrong idea. It's perfectly okay for an attributive noun be modified by its own attributive noun. A task force under the IAB. Old IETF address still works. This does not refer to a specific frequency range, like RF. As explained at the superhet entry, an adjustable frequency is generated using a VFO to be mixed with signals coming from an antenna. In other words, you tune the receiver by adjusting the VFO so that its frequency, combined with the signal frequency, yields the fixed chosen IF.

Subsequent amplification may be conveniently performed at this frequency. This has the advantage that the frequency range of signal to be amplified is fractionally small i. Within this narrow band, it is easy to achieve linear, frequency-independent amplification. IF is not the final frequency because after amplification, the desired signal is extracted as deviations AM , FM , or long story away from a pure IF signal.

For information on the use of punctuated forms of the abbreviation, read the attributive noun entry. In French, the final ex is silent, unless the word is immediately followed by a vowel sound. Like, you really needed to know this. If information is nonnegative, then it probably won't hurt much to visit the ABC entry. Earphone in the host's ear which allows the engineer or other responsible person to confuse any host who appears to be in danger of making too much sense. Bodybuilders have always been at the cutting edge that's a pun, son of chemical progress.

In addition, he noted that there are no effective tests for growth hormone or insulin, and masking agents for diuretics have grown more effective. Possibly most important, except for a few years in the mid's, the IFFB didn't conduct off-season random testing of the bodybuilders. As the Olympics and such mainstream sports as football and baseball have learned [SBF is echoing news reports here; the SBF content-injector doubts that mainstream sports have learned very much], announced tests on the day of competition are unlikely to catch anyone who has been alerted.

He is also a historian by inclination and publication, so the following is mildly amusing. In a interview and elsewhere he rhapsodizes: Part of the World Bank Group.

What kind of stuff they study might be indicated by the title of the book I got this out of, which they cosponsored: An entity created by and for JCIC.

This article , written from a pedagogical point of view, uses words like fear and loathing , and urges that the courses be made easier so the students will show up in class I exaggerate only a little. Founded in Edinburgh, Scotland, in at an international conference; celebrates its 75th anniversary in Glasgow, Scotland, in As of May , has members in countries.

Do you realize that, if they had hurried up and founded it in , they could be celebrating their centennial this year, instead of this awkward bis-jubilee next year.

That would be cool. It didn't just happen to be left unrepresented in the acronym. She is the IFLAC president as of this writing, , and also the founder, editor, and factotum of various such putatively worthwhile projects as the magazine Horizon Pave Peace. I don't know what it is about her and non-dirt roads.

I do know that poetry will not bring peace to the Middle East. What is needed is a space race. Israel and Hamas will compete to see who can put a man okay, okay -- or a woman on Mars first.

No extra credit for the return trip. You know, I'm a poet too. There aren't any certification tests for poet. I'm a five-star black-belt poet with an iron cross, eagle ring, six olive clusters, and three large coconuts, and my poems can crush your poems without breaking a sweat.

On second thought, I think that another high-level conference is just the thing that will bring lasting peace. But only if the joint closing statement is carefully crafted to paper over the unresolvable differences. It sounds like something from DuPont.

If only I had spent more time at the office! People often say that no one ever goes to his grave regretting not having worked hard enough. Setting aside that many regret poverty, there is the counterexample of Prince Felix zu Schwarzenberg. He was groomed by Metternich for diplomatic service, but for most of his life he practiced his eloquence only in the seduction of women. It was only during the revolutions of that he discovered the joys of work.

That's the expansion whenever an expansion seems to be given, but I'm not sure it's official. Ruling party of KwaZulu in South Africa. They don't dwell on the expansion of their name. If you can read this, then you're missing the iframe described in next entry. Nevertheless, as of June , I'm not aware of a platform on which even the latest Netscape Navigator release supports it.

A document now called Anopolis. A wonderfully stupid site, and apparently completely sincere. Here's the same site via an alternate URL. An element of computer architecture, and not of dog training. There are two autonomous universities of Puebla. That's how it goes, right? Certain classes of small proteins that function as antibodies.

The modern word yore comes from the O. Note, however, that most gh's in Modern English arise from noninitial h's in Old English. There's a bit of information on inspectors general at the RAT entry. A class of antibodies secreted by mucus glands in the gut, salivary glands, tear ducts, mammary glands, and colostrum. The IgA antibodies in milk lend some immune defense to a breast-fed baby; in this connection, see IgG. Here's what their toilet paper looks like , on exhibit at VTPM.

A meeting of European Community EC member nation delegations for negotiation. Decisions must be reached by unanimity. The Stammtisch has successfully implemented this approach. Kissinger liked to observe that university faculty politics are vicious because they are petty he put it differently.

An IGC met in Turin in As of , the principal association for developers of computer games. Formerly known as the IGDN. Their inappropriate overproduction is associated with asthma and other diseases. This is not really my intellectual bailiwick, but there's spot more information on this at the HGF entry.

Whether the gate is metal or highly doped polysilicon or anything else, although for commercial devices there is no anything else , if the gate insulation is oxide it's called a MOSFET. IGFET is now a rare term, so if anyone uses it they're either trying to be general or they're referring specifically to some gate insulator that isn't silicon-, for all practical purposes oxide.

A class of antibodies. The major immunoglobulin in normal human blood serum, and the only immunoglobulin that can cross the placenta. A class of antibodies active against bacteria and foreign red blood cells.

Their size prevents them from crossing the human placenta. A protocol used to communicate routing information between internet routers. This is not for header or other message information but for information about the internet path itself. Such hormones are used in pest control preventing a chrysalis from maturing, for example.

An advantage is that, if strategically deposited, these can be effective in small quantities. A disadvantage is that hormones don't differ all that much across the animal kingdom Other links at the guitar entry. Above-normal blood glucose levels normal, but too low to justify a diagnosis of diabetes.

IgT Integrated Telecom Technology. A self-perpetuating bureaucracy nominally under the Japanese prime minister. Its principal tasks are to prevent any correct or unfavorable information about the Japanese imperial dynasty and its preposterous myths from becoming public, and to make the life of the Empress a living hell from the time she becomes Crown Princess. They're also in charge of some protocol stuff. It cannot be proven that they call directly upon the services of the violent nationalists who threaten and harass anyone who publicly opposes the IHA's policies.

Okay, here's the information you've been waiting for: For more information, see this posting on the Classics list. I have great admiration for I have great respect and admiration for I have the greatest respect and admiration for Supports a cilium in the cochlea. Listen to your inner hair! A network of programs for children and youth and their families, based at UMN. As of , it seems to have changed its name or disappeared.

Alfred Nobel's first great technical achievement was the invention of dynamite, a manageable form of nitroglycerine. There's no ucation in the official name. French -- a language in which, unlike English, adjectives generally follow the nouns they modify significant exceptions: Originally a chain of breakfast A-frames with blue roofs. Nowadays they stack 'em under other architectures as well.

I was served late, I had to ask three times for my drink, my order was taken and forgotten, then apparently taken incorrectly, and the food was unsatisfactory. At least I didn't have to wait five minutes to be cashed out, as happened on an earlier occasion. You're probably thinking I should stop complaining and just get a life, but stop a moment and think: I am I really the sort of glossarist who would bore you with the petty irritations of my life if there were not some important larger point to be made?

Would I just blather on about such stuff? What do you think? There is a bigger point here, and I'll make it eventually. Once while waiting too long to be seated, I looked at the seating chart and noticed a management notice to the effect that employees caught hanging out at a certain nearby table would be dismissed. I guess management was never there when I was. For reasons beyond my ken, employees at that IHOP are particularly prone to haunting the place when they're off duty. Scratch that, generalize; they're particularly prone to being off-duty when they're there.

The second-to-last time I ever go there, as I was beginning my meal, my waitress asked if there was anything I would want, as she was going on break. Your fall-back opinion is that it serves me right for going more than once. I guess I just thought it had to be a fluke, and another fluke, and Really poor service is rarely a fluke; it's a management failure.

Today among the off-duty personnel at nearby tables, I overheard one waitress complaining that the other day she figured out that she had only earned 4. I was tempted to tell her that that was probably right. I actually checked discreetly to see who it was. She wasn't anyone who had ever waited on me, though of course I'd seen her around. In the future if I want service this poor I can go to Denny's -- it's closer.

I can't say that all big restaurant chains have shabby service. Indeed, over the long run you imagine none can. But in the highly competitive restaurant business, chains exhibit the effects of management failure in interesting ways. To contrast, consider the restaurants in my area that are not franchises of some chain.

They go out of business at an extraordinary rate, as I suggest at the pork rinds entry. But more to the point, on an individual basis they decline quickly. The suddenness is expressed in Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman Willy was a salesman.

And for a salesman, there is no rock bottom to the life. He don't put a bolt to a nut, he don't tell you the law or give you medicine. He's a man way out there in the blue, riding on a smile and a shoeshine. And when they start not smiling back -- that's an earthquake. And then you get yourself a couple of spots on your hat, and you're finished. Most retailing is like that; it doesn't matter whether the salesman travels to the customers like Willy, or puts up a sign and waits for the customers to come to him.

What matters is that when you're being paid for a commodity, you're often competing on the basis of customer service. Restaurants -- prepared-food retailers -- can compete by offering unusual cuisine don't tell me they can offer food that everyone likes more or low price, or convenient location or speed. You made a mistake: Founded in by A. As of early , the institute housed three research centers: Founded in in Paris, France, and moved to Geneva, Switzerland, in Its members include both national hospitality industry associations and hotel and restaurant chains.

It is often appended to indicate the second person in a line to bear a name. The line may be a sequence of monarchs of a given realm. Note that the monarchs need not belong to the same dynasty: I'm not sure to what extent the pope of the Roman Catholic Church counts as a monarch, but that would be a stronger example in recent centuries.

Look, I know the following is disordered, but it might help you to figure things out until I do. That briefly is the usual practice with ruling houses. A definite outlier is the House of Reuss, which has had a number of lines e. One is reminded of Candide's adoptive family and their precious quarterings. The Reuss Younger Line, is a dynasty that ruled a German principality from founded with Napoleon's Confederation of the Rhine until defeat of the German Empire.

All the males of that house were named Heinrich, but they each got a serial number that was unique enough counting restarted each century. This is a real entry, and not something concocted by Monty Python. While peak horsepower is a quick evaluator, we prefer to use average power in these comparisons because it always produces a better picture of overall performance. Not only did the TFS heads produce the most peak power but also the best average torque and horsepower.

The RHS heads produced the next closest average horsepower and torque, with the Edelbrock and Ford heads very close behind. Trick Flow Specialties Twisted Wedge.

We did this to expand the scale to show the differences in power near peak horsepower. While the TFS head looks much stronger than the Edelbrock version above 5, rpm, the maximum differential is only 13 hp at 5, rpm. It is more important to evaluate the entire length of this horsepower graph. When you do that, you can see that the TFS head did substantially better than all the other heads from about 4, rpm and above.

You will certainly feel that in the car. Dollar Per Horsepower Peak power numbers are always fun to throw around, but car crafters are also very astute at determining what all that power will cost.

To minimize the grief of doing the math yourself, we averaged the horsepower between 3,—6, rpm and then divided that into the cost of a pair of heads. The winner in this evaluation is almost always the least expensive head just because of the way the math formula works. This particular evaluation only works, however, if lowest cost is the highest priority. If it is, then you know what you need to do.

But for perhaps a majority of enthusiasts, this evaluation may be too simplistic. Conclusion Like we said, if best power or least price is your only concern, then the decision is easy. If ultimate power is not the most important point, then you could easily choose any of these heads and make a good decision.

That may or may not make your ultimate choice any easier, but if so, you can thank us later. And, yes, this next bit is unashamed self-promotion, but the next time some lame dude spouts off about how he gets all his information off the Web—ask him to show you the last time he read a comprehensive test like this from a free Web-based publication.

Car Craft is one of the few magazines that is willing to do this kind of extensive and expensive technical testing for our readers.
