August Book Tour Highlights - Part 1!
posted on August 30th, 2012

Here’s a summary of some of the press I did for my book tour this August for my latest math book, Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape!

The Today Show – August 13th 2012

I had such a great time in both my segments – first with Savannah and then with Kathie Lee! Wore a red Dina Bar-El dress on both segments. I also wrote a guest blog for Today Moms, which was fun to put together. So if you click on the linke, the first video you’ll see is with Savannah Guthrie, followed by my (written) guest blog on “5 Tips to Conquer Math Phobia For Your Kids,” and then my segment with Kathie Lee appears at the bottom of the page. (Scroll down!)


Morning Joe – Aired live, August 14th 2012

LOVED this. Had such an awesome time with the roundtable discussion at Morning Joe. We talked math, the gender “gap,” and my new book, Girls Get Curves: Geometry Takes Shape! If you’re curious about what’s actually in my book, this is the best segment to watch. (And thank you to Dina Bar-El for lending me another amazing dress to wear!)



HuffPost Live – Aired live, August 15th 2012

Wearing a fun orange Dina Bar-El dress, host Mike Sacks and I chatted with some online folks and the discussion went from the math to singing (um, the quadratic formula) to... babies and the challenges of labor! Yes, this interview went many places. ;) 


CNN Live with Brooke Baldwin – Aired live, August 14th2012

Always interesting doing these satellite interviews, where you can’t see the person you’re talking to... because they are in a different state! I had a great time, and here's a picture so you can see the fabulous brown lacy Dina Bar-El dress I got to wear on it. Fancy fancy for the news, I know... :) 

Note: This segment starts with a bit of Mars Curiousity updates before I appear.

Stay tuned for more in Part 2!

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.
