MAN’s sectorspecifieke focus komt op tal van fronten terug, zoals de keuze uit drie mogelijke all-wheel-drive technologievarianten. De lancering van MAN Hydrodrive in 2005 markeerde de introductie van een nieuwe aandrijftechnologie. Het technische concept van hydrostatische voorwielaandrijving voor extra grip wanneer die gewenst is en een sterke vertraging op steile offroad hellingen vormde voor veel sectoren een welkome aanvulling. HydroDrive is daarom in een...

Microsoft has joined Google on the new frontier of energy efficiency – the chiller-less data center. Microsoft today announced that its huge facility in Dublin, Ireland is running without any chillers. Outside air is drawn into the facility to cool the thousands of servers powering the company’s “Live” suite of online services for users in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Microsoft also said it can run its server rooms at temperatures of up to 95 degrees F (35 degrees Celsius), much warmer than most data centers, which typically range between 68 and 72 degrees.  Free Cooling Drives Energy SavingsUsing outside air in data center air conditioning – a practice known as “free cooling” or air-side economization – allows facility owners to dramatically reduce the amount of energy...

For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice, and shall see the plumb line

For whoever has despised the day of small things shall rejoice, and shall see the plumb line in the hand of Zerubbabel, who satteth at the right hand of Taglioni. Yea verily, what is a nice original 748 going for these days? The 916 is the collectible Ducati all the collectors want, yet were it I doing the collecting, the higher-winding banana-yellow 748 is the bike I’d want to ride out once or twice a year to forgive all iniquity, heal all  disease, redeem life from the pit,  crown with steadfast love and mercy and satisfy with good so that my youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Is that so much to ask? Ducati intended for the 748 to be a middleweight twin that looks identical to the 996, revs to the moon and handles as solidly as the bigger-bore Ducati superbike yet costs $4,000 USD less. So what do you get for your $12,495 (MSRP) that will put a 748 “standard” in your garage? Let’s find out… The motor is not just a de-stroked and sleeved-down motor pulled from the 996. The 748 gets its displacement from its 88 x 61.5 mm bore and stroke (compared to the 996’s 99 x 66 mm bore and stroke) with the liquid-cooled cylinders set 90-degrees apart. The motor uses an 11.5:1 compressio...

Carcinogen scare sets off global race to contain tainted Zantac

Drugmakers and global public health regulators are taking steps to remove supplies of Zantac, a popular heartburn medication, from the market because it may have become tainted with a cancer-causing agent. Novartis’ Sandoz unit said Wednesday that it was halting worldwide distribution of generic versions of the stomach drug, just days after regulators in the U.S. and Europe began investigating the discovery of a likely human carcinogen called NDMA, or N-Nitrosodimethylamine, in the medication. Some versions of Zantac, which is also known by the generic name ranitidine, have also been recalled in Europe and Canada. The moves are the latest in a series of actions aimed at getting drugs tainted with potentially deadly contaminants off pharmacy shelves. Since last year, the U.S. Food and Drug administration has been overseeing a recall of a type of generic blood pressure pills that originated in China and India and were contaminated with NDMA. Until last week, concerns had mostly been limited to that class of hypertension drugs, known as angiotensin II receptor blockers. But Friday, the FDA and Europe’s top drug regulator said they were examining NDMA levels in Zantac and its generi...
