My Car Does Not Work When Carrying Vanilla Ice Cream

This story begins when a division of the United States GM Pontiac cars received a curious customer complaint, a complaint by a customer dissatisfied with his car, which ensured that it was not working when carrying one or several ice cream of vanilla, instead, with other flavors, the car functioned without any problems. This is the claim expressed by the client: this is the second time that I send them a letter, and do not blame them for not answering. I can seem crazy, but the truth is that we have a tradition in our family that is taking ice cream after dinner. We repeat this habit every night, just by varying the flavor of ice cream; and I am commissioned to go buy them. Recently I bought a new Pontiac and, since then, the trips to the ice cream shop has become a problem. Whenever I buy vanilla ice cream, when I prepare to return home, the car doesn’t work. If I buy any other flavor, the car runs normally. They will think that I am really crazy and no matter how silly that you can seem my claim, but the fact is that I’m upset with my model 99 Pontiac.

This so curious claim made is awakened doubt in the company, and the director ordered a technician to check if this was true. Both client and technician went to an ice cream shop and as always, stopped working mysteriously found the vanilla ice cream, car. The problem ended up becoming an obsession for the engineer, who ended up doing daily experiments, scoring all the details possible. After two weeks arrived in the first great discovery: when it chose vanilla, the buyer was you served ice cream in less time because that flavor of ice cream was in front of the counter. To examine the vehicle, the engineer made a new discovery: as the time of purchase was small if you choose the flavor of vanilla, as compared to the time of purchase of other flavors, motor did not cool down. Thus, the fuel vapors is not disipaban, which prevented the engine to start instantly. Starting at that episode, the Pontiac changed the fuel supply system and introduced a modification on all their models from the 1999 line. The complainant obtained a new car, as well as arrangement of which did not work with vanilla ice cream. GM distributed an internal statement, demanding that employees take is seriously until the claims more strange, because it can be a great innovation resides behind a vanilla ice cream. He said the release of GM.

Document Management

The documents contain information, information. The documents are a source of knowledge. The production of goods and services depends on the knowledge and how it is managed. The information is the means and the enabling environment knowledge. The importance that represents the new paradigm of information management is given because the organizations will be able to survive to the extent they are able to become aware of what they do not know and how to access and grasp the knowledge necessary to remain productive, dynamic, competitive and innovative. Often it is necessary first to carry out an audit of information and knowledge in the organization. Besides reflecting the information flows associated with life processes, can reveal such things as whether the necessary involvement of management, if there is a favorable corporate culture or identify training needs and motivation. No target is attainable if we do not develop and put systems in place capable of achieve and aim to: – The permanent accessibility of information – the availability and updating of information – The automation of workflows with the documentation – the circulation, distribution and decrease storage of documents – Ease information retrieval.

We reiterate that: the documents contain data, information. The documents are a source of knowledge. The production of goods and services depends on the knowledge and how it is managed. The information is the means and the enabling environment knowledge. The importance that represents the new paradigm of information management is given because the organizations will be able to survive to the extent they are able to become aware of what they do not know and how to access and grasp the knowledge necessary to remain productive, dynamic, competitive and innovative. Often it is necessary first to carry out an audit of information and knowledge in the organization.

Technological Advances

The technological advances and the new social conditions impose continuous changes in the way them transports and the necessary controls for its good functioning. However, the difficulties of financing on the part of the public treasure, the lesser economic growth, the civil wars and the natural calamities contribute for the weak development of the transports, and for its successive problems that they come across themselves where we will go to sign up after that: 6,1 Railroad problems of transport. Fraca density of the railroads; Elevados investments in the maintenance and functioning of the system railroad worker; Grande dependence in relation to the neighboring countries (South Africa and Zimbabwe); Descarrilamentos; taken Sabotagem the handle for the neighboring populations; Textura of the ground; Curvas pressed; Problemas of traffic flow; Problemas in the commercial speed; Os itinerary is fixed; (Xitimela Maputo, 1996). 6,2 Road problems of transport. Congestionamento of the traffic; Maior index of pollution due the release of carbon monoxide (CO), that they exceed the vast limit of 8 ppm (small molecular particles); sonorous Poluio in great ratios; Dispendioso when one is about long distances; Salvat library, great Subject S/D 6,3 maritime Problems of transport. very slow.

COMPLEMENTARIDADE OF the TRANSPORTS the transports continue to be a way to answer the necessities of displacement of populations and its activities as in the centers problems are generated with high frequency derived from one strong search on the net of transport whose the expansion if finds each time more conditional enters the remaining use of the ground, for the opposite, the areas of low density, generally conotadas as periphery, they present a lesser density of nets, and also of some scarcity of it offers of chances if comparative with the previous ones becoming the attractive territories in this way it saw if that the complementaridade was important since it complements other.

Jigsaw – one of the most popular tools, which is appreciated by professionals and DIY for his versatile. In this article I will tell you the features and talk about the Jigsaw main selection criteria. Jigsaw (Jigsaw electric saw) – Hand tool with an electric drive, which has small dimensions and light weight. Jigsaw is designed for longitudinal, transverse and Shape cutting of various sheet materials. Jigsaw can perform the following tasks: straight cuts virtually any material (wood, sheet metal, plastic, laminate, drywall, ceramic tile, etc.), the curvilinear cut any material to make round holes of various diameters and rectangular openings. Benefits of Jigsaw for most repairs, carpentry and other similar work at home do not need to drink a large capacity, this work perfectly cope electrofret, Jigsaw can make high-quality curly cut material, working with different kinds of materials; indispensable tool for carving; professionals say Jigsaw versatility and ease of use. Jigsaw are professional and household: The household models have less power, working resource and, often, a smaller set of additional features. Jigsaw everyday you can usually cut wooden parts of a thickness of 70 mm, steel – up to 2-4 mm.

Requirements for household tool is not so high as to professional, so many well-known brands make this instrument is not in Germany and Czechoslovakia, as in China or Poland. Recommended total time of use of household is about Jigsaws twenty hours per month. Of course, domestic models have a lower cost than professional. For the professional tool imposed higher requirements, because it must withstand a heavy load, have performance and to be as convenient for work.


From the formality of documents generated by international agencies or the summits of Heads of Government to the drama that the environmentalists activists printed, there is agreement about the need to lower or abolish the current emission levels of carbon dioxide emissions. There is also agreement about which these emissions are generated by human activity. They are anthropogenic in nature as it is. Disagreements have begun, in terms of the causal patterns and intensities of attenuate or eliminate those emissions. These disagreements are increasing intensity as it could not be otherwise subject to the everlasting struggle for power, which in turn are necessarily biased ideologies or worldviews, of his opposing In this context, approaches to decrease emissions, are multiple. From our own limitations, together with the monographic and informative nature of this crucial problem, we will perceive that they are located on the one hand the wills who believe that this has a technological solution versus those who believe that this single is solved with a cultural change. There are those who believe that this should be resolved gradually and there are those who believe that there should be drastic and urgent efforts, and without straining the enunciation there are those who believe that this can be addressed with the mechanisms of the market, and there are those who believe that they are essential active public sustained policies. If in an attempt of understanding crossed the three choices (which reiterate not us) It seems that they are the only ones) and we characterized the three as a sort of range, or spectrum, we can perceive that there are at least theoretically mixed positions. But posts to take positions, we are inclined by the pole of cultural change, by the pole of the word, and have reservations about the ends of polarity market – active policies.Even our preference for the pole of cultural change, does not make us walk the path of the technophobia.We believe in incorporating criticism, selective and located the technological contributions.

Classification Of Welds

Butt joint is a weld of two elements located in the same plane and adjacent to one another end surface. It is most common in welded structures, because has several advantages over other types of connections. Symbols of butt joints: ci – C48. Lap-joint is a weld, which combines elements are arranged in parallel and overlap. Symbols: HI-H9. Mechanical connection – a compound in which the side surfaces of the elements adjacent to each other. Symbols in the standard yet.

Gusset lateral surface of one element is adjacent a corner scrap and welded onto the end face of another element. Typically, the angle between the elements of the line. Symbols T-joints: T1-T8. Depending on the types of welded joints distinguish butt and fillet welds. Seams of the first type operates in welding butt joints, the joints of the second kind – when welding angle, tee and nahlestoch-like compounds. The shape of the cross-section welds subdivided into standard, convex and concave.

On the number of layers of welded joints can be single-layered and layered. Layer – is part of the weld metal, which consists of one or more rollers located on the one level, the cross-sectional weld. Roller – a metal joint, weld, or remelted in a single pass. In accordance with gost 2601 – 84 basic parameters form a butt joint: e – width of joint, q – the convexity of the seam, m – weld concavity, h – depth of penetration (penetration), for fillet welds – the value of leg A '(Figure 1.11). Part of the weld, the most distant from his face, called the root of the weld.

Western Psychology

Stanislav Grof noted with much interest the recurring experiences of his patients, as the memory of past lives, feelings of union with the cosmos, the memories of reincarnation as animals and detailed knowledge of places had never been before. The man, since remote times has experienced the expansion of consciousness beyond the personal, experiencing a connection with another full and invisible, reality which has enabled it to Intuit the meaning of his existence. These intuitions correspond to the mystical revelations experienced by the ancient prophets, interpreted as voices or interior guides which subsequently were the source of the religions transpersonal psychology considers topics as: experiences summits (which according to the American psychologist Abraham Maslow (1908-1970) are States of interconnection and spiritual unification); Mystic experiences; systemic trances and metaphysical experiences of life. While several (depending on the psychological and spiritual concepts that integrate) are the paths that can be taken from this synthesis, the main objective of the transpersonal psychology would be that human beings transcend the sense of themselves, to achieve identified with a greater awareness. Transpersonal Psychology considers the psyche multidimencional. There are different levels of consciousness and each has different characteristics and is governed by different laws. Such as holding Stanislav Grof, the biggest problem of Western psychotherapy seems to be the fact of that, for various reasons, each researcher has primarily fixed his attention on a certain level of awareness and widespread his discoveries to the totality of the human psyche.

The origins of this current take shape at the end of the 1960s and that, despite having brilliant exponents such as Abraham Maslow, Stanislav Grof, Ken Wilber, and has been systematically ignored in the academic field of psychology. Not taught practically in any University despite being, probably, the most comprehensive psychological power of all. Of course that this is a debatable point and I propose this written as a contribution to the debate.

Bolivarian Republic

As you can see they are countries in the region of the Caribbean and even of Central America, with weak economies, large energy needs, where this partnership definitely favors them in their development. Important thing is to determine what are the fundamentals of the agreement, its scope, benefits. Taken into account, that the objective is significant for the countries involved, because this contributes to the transformation of the Latin American and Caribbean societies please, making them more fair, educated, participative, and supportive, so it is intended as a proposed comprehensive that it promotes the Elimination of social inequalities, promotes quality of life and effective participation of peoples in shaping its own destiny. Should be noted, that as stated and is public knowledge, gave way to a Treaty on energy security Petrocaribe, to ensure security and energy stability in the Caribbean, ten countries attending the Summit III in August 2007, signed the Petrocaribe energy security treaty, proposed by the President of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela, Hugo Chavez. The signatory Nations were: Grenada, Belize, Cuba, Dominica, Haiti, Nicaragua, Saint Vincent and Grenadines, Jamaica, Suriname and Venezuela. This mechanism is intended to expand refining capacity and build or improve energy infrastructure in the region, for the dispatch, reception, transport, storage and distribution of hydrocarbons. Also, it seeks to develop policies and actions that each country allocate 10% of its capacity of sowing to the strictly necessary ethanol production, build liquefaction and regasification plants and enter the gas in its energy matrix.The Treaty also encourages the rational use of energy, in the search for maximum savings and efficiency, for which drives the development of petrochemical pole, the substitution of artifacts of high consumption of energy by more efficient equipment and the use of alternative energies such as wind, solar, geothermal, hydroelectric, among others.Member countries committed themselves to create and strengthen binational ventures and to negotiate directly between States to eliminate intermediaries.

Embrapa Research

The performances in partnership with Venezuela and Africa do not only benefit the partners. To these countries, whose industrial sector is incipient, it interests the purchase of machines and equipment produced in Brazil (NOTCIAS AGRCOLAS, 2010). The Embrapa Americas, installed in Panama in 2010, after agreement with the government of this country, acts in research and development, technological technology transfer and businesses in Panama and El Salvador.
