Dance of the Sugar Pi Fairy!
posted on December 16th, 2013

Hi everyone! 

I'm so excited to announce that my "Dance of the Sugar Pi Fairy" video came out today on the Nerdist Channel on YouTube. Yay!! 

So, yes, I wrote a song about pi, and my song includes 139 digits while entertaining audiences with ballerinas (including Chris Hardwick in a tutu) dancing to the good ol' Nutcracker song "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies." 

I get to be dressed up as a fairy in the woods, using my magical wand to conjure up digits of pi and... well, let's not give anything else away, shall we? 

I'll just tell you this much more: Felicia Day makes a few awesome guest appearances as the "pi expert", and I also got wonderful cameos from the likes of Simon Pegg, Jim O'Heir (from Parks & Rec!), Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls), Chris Hardwick, Matt Mira & Jonah Ray (the last three of which yes appear in tutus. Score!). 

It'll be the best 2 minutes of your day! ;)

xoxo, Danica

The common rail system prototype was developed in the late 1960s by Robert Huber of Switzerland and the technology further developed by Dr. Marco Ganser at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, later of Ganser-Hydromag AG (est.1995) in Ober?geri.
The first successful usage in a production vehicle began in Japan by the mid-1990s. Dr. Shohei Itoh and Masahiko Miyaki of the Denso Corporation, a Japanese automotive parts manufacturer, developed the Common Rail fuel system for heavy duty vehicles and turned it into practical use on their ECD-U2 common-rail system mounted on the Hino Rising Ranger truck and sold for general use in 1995.[3] Denso claims the first commercial high pressure common rail system in 1995.[4]
Modern common rail systems, whilst working on the same principle sensor are governed by an engine control unit (ECU) which opens each injector electronically rather than mechanically. This was extensively prototyped in the 1990s with collaboration between Magneti Marelli,Centro Ricerche Fiat and Elasis. After research and development by the Fiat Group, the design was acquired by the German companyRobert Bosch GmbH for completion of development and refinement for mass-production Common Rail Nozzle . In hindsight, the sale appeared to be a tactical error for Fiat, as the new technology proved to be highly profitable. The Common Rail Injector Valve had little choice but to sell, however, as it was in a poor financial state at the time and lacked the resources to complete development on its own.[5] In 1997 they extended its use for passenger cars Common Rail Injector . The first passenger car that used the common rail system was the 1997 model Alfa Romeo 156 2.4 JTD,[6] and later on that same year Mercedes-Benz C 220 CDI.Common Rail Shim & Gasket kit have been used in marine and locomotive applications for some time. The Cooper-Bessemer GN-8 (circa 1942) is an example of a hydraulically operated common rail diesel engine, also known as a modified common rail.
