Too Pretty to Do Math?
posted on May 27th, 2011

Forever 21 recently promoted a magnet on their website that said, "I'm Too Pretty to Do Math." I was thinking instead they could try, "I'm Too Stupid to Write Slogans."
Someone tweeted me that if the company had produced a magnet that says "I'm Too Pretty to Vote" that it might hit home a bit more. How about even "I'm Too Pretty to Read"?

I mean, really? We're still promoting the idea that somehow looks and smarts are mutually exclusive? It's so limiting for girls (and women)!! It's one of the main reasons I write my books. It's like we're living in the Stone Age with regard to these stereotypes... but with every email I get from my readers, I gain hope.

Happy end to this particular story - Forever 21 took the link down for that product today. ;)

I was on a recent family \stay\"cation and picked up a copy of Family Circle. I was dismayed to read a small article titled

I have a question for you, Danica. My grandfather told me this arithmetic question, and it's impossible to solve, (I think). So here's the question: Three men walk into a hotel and ask for a room. The room costs $30.00, so the men pay $10.00 each. The guy at the front desk then gives them their room key. After the men had gone to their room, the guy at the front desk thinks, \Oh no

I know there are other ways to do the problem above. But with this logic, how come there's 1 dollar missing in the way to do the problem?

The riddle's a trick. You think you're solving for 30, but the way it does math, you ought to be solving for the 25 the front desk kept. Solve to 0: $30 - Each of the men paid $10. $25 - The Front desk kept $25 $3 - Each man got $1 back $2 - The bellman kept $2. ========== $30Add 'em up It all balances out just fine.

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.
