Week of Publicity in NYC!
posted on August 13th, 2012

This week I’m in NYC doing publicity for my newly released book, “Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape.” This morning I was on two segments of the Today Show, first with Savannah Guthrie and then with Kathie Lee Gifford – so much fun!! I talked mostly about my books and math, and a little about the TV movie I just finished shooting a few days ago, a Christmas-time romantic comedy also starring Dustin Milligan and Lea Thompson. 

Later this week I’ll be popping up on other various talk shows like segments for CNN and MSNBC to talk more about math education and my books – and how to make smart the new sexy. ;) Helping that cause, Dina Bar-el has lent me dresses for my book publicity, and I’m very excited to be wearing them. Her stuff is so awesome.

By the way, Kevin Jonas (of the Jonas Brothers) and his wife were on the Today segment before my Kathie Lee visit this morning, and I thought it was kind of awesome that my green Geometry book graphic was on the screen behind them as they were talking about their reality show. Strangely, a similar thing happened when I was on Attack of the Show in June – my book graphic showed up in the middle of their tech segment on laptops. Gotta love live TV!  (I’ll be doing AOTS again August 21st. Love those guys.)

For the latest on my national TV appearances and book signings, check out the Calendar (see to the left). Will be doing a few SMTs for various local news shows, too, but I won’t be listing all of those.

Thanks for all your continued support!

What a week! You looked great Danica and more importantly you got your message of empowering young girls to seriously consider the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields across loud and clear. It was so much more ambitious than merely a promotional tour for your book, you obviously care so much! And too, as you mentioned often this week, you love to be the 'entertainer' and you certainly were. There were some great moments and some great laughs. You have an infectious charisma that draws your fan base. You are equally loved as you are appreciated. Cheers! Doug

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.
