August Book Tour Highlights - Part 2!
posted on September 5th, 2012

Here's the second half of my book tour highlights...

Attack of the Show – aired live, August 21st, 2012

Let me start by saying how much I love AOTS. This is my third appearance on the show, and it’s always a blast. That being said... this quickly became probably the most awkward interview I’ve done in recent memory... and I ended up delivering quite the little zinger to the host midway through. (!) The leopard-print dress is by Dina Bar-El.  I am woman, hear me roar?

Better TV – Aug 22nd

This is a show geared toward making your life “better”! And in this case, making your life better by getting good at math... Had a great time chatting with the hosts!

 



AOL.com –  posted August 28th 2012

AOL does this cool segment called “You’ve Got...” – yes, a play on the old “You’ve Got Mail” thing. This is a minute and a half of me talking about the benefits of math. By the way, I shot this segment on the same day as I shot the “Better TV” segment, and AOL posted it on their homepage August 28th, 2012.  But this explains why I’m wearing the same dress as in that show.   And yes, the dress is again by Dina Bar-El, who graciously lent me fabulous dresses to wear for my entire time in NYC. How cool is that?


NPR’s Science Friday – aired August 17th 2012

I love Science Friday and NPR in general – really intelligent entertainment! I’ve been honored to be on this show many times before, but usually with the awesome Ira Flatow. This was the first time I sat down with Flora Lichtman, who was also awesome, by the way! The piece turned out great. No picture for this one, because hey, it’s radio!


Newsweek’s Daily Beast – aired Sept 3rd

A fun video called “Seven Questions” where I answer 7 random questions, and one of them leads to me giving a sneak peak of the Pi song I’m writing to the tune of “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairies.”   


TV Guide – Sept 3rd

And finally, a little TV Guide article came out Sept 3rd, including a picture from my Glendale book signing. 

And there were many local radio and TV interviews done as part of satellite media tours, but I won’t list all of those...!

Pant, pant! Hope you enjoyed the interviews as much as I enjoyed doing them.

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.
