them do their thing,” he said. A slow hand

Over three years, Michael Ramies went from novice to champion at Laguna Seca. What does it take to win? Practice. “The saying that practice makes perfect is absolutely true” about auto racing, he added. Also important: good training,

natural talent without an overabundance of fear, and knowing when to back off. “You definitely have to know your limits,” he said. “You don’t go into a corner at full speed and see what happens. You work up to it.” The top five racers in a class tend to have lap times that are very close to each other, he said. Right behind them is the midfield, who tend to be less than a second slower than the leaders. The rest lag by a bit more than a second. “A second sounds like

nothing, but in a race, that’s massive,” Mr. Ramies said. In the spectrum of athletes’ reaction times, baseball and football players lead the field, he said. Motor sports racers are at the other end just above the slowest group, golfers. “You have to have a slow hand movement so the car can have the time to react and then go around the problem,” he said. “We see quickly but we react slowly. ... We don’t slam on the brakes. We do what needs to be done.” A

Caltrain to add baby bullets on weekends Caltrain will be adding express service to its regular schedule of trains traveling between San Francisco and San Jose on weekends, Caltrain announced last week. Beginning Jan. 1, Caltrain will introduce its “Baby Bullet” service on weekends: four trains that will make seven stops between San Jose and San Francisco. The stops will be at Sunnyvale, Mountain View, Palo Alto, Redwood City, Hillsdale, San Mateo and Millbrae. The new Baby Bullet train will make two roundtrips between San Francisco and San Jose, once in the morning and once in the afternoon, according to Caltrain. Regular weekend trains, which will continue, make more than 20 stops on north and southbound routes, Caltrain said. Caltrain officials said the new service, which will initially run as a pilot project for three months, is a response to public requests for faster weekend trips from the Peninsula to San Francisco. Caltrain said it is trying new ways to boost ridership and revenue in the face of a projected $2.3 million budget gap for its

he ice at the North Pole is melting. That’s not good, scientists say. Not for the polar bears who live there; not for Santa Claus, who reportedly lives there; and not for the rest of life on this planet now and into the future. Leslie Field, an engineer and Portola Valley resident, has a plan for covering polar ice to slow its melting and will give a presentation at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 7, in the Community Hall at 765 Portola Road. As North Pole ice melts, the Arctic Ocean becomes less white, which means less

sunlight — and less heat — reflected through the atmosphere and out into space. The increasingly darker ocean then absorbs increasingly more heat. “It’s a positive feedback loop, which will always get an engineer’s attention,” Ms. Field said in a phone interview. “What can one do to interrupt that (feedback loop)?” What she has done is experiment with tiny spheres of reflective glass. There are details to be worked out, but if such microspheres of glass were implanted in fabric-like squares about three-feet on a side, with the fabric distrib-

uted on the surface of the ice, it might work, Ms. Field said. About 20 percent of global warming is due to melting ice, she said. As the oceans warm, significant change could come to major currents such as the Gulf Stream, which has moderated weather on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean since the last ice age. Notions are out there to “fertilize” the ocean with iron filings to encourage greenhouse gas absorption by plankton, or to add particles to the upper atmosphere to reflect sunshine. Such fixes are commonly known as geoengineering, but Ms. Field prefers to call her idea eco-

engineering. Scientists worry about unintentional consequences. The airborne particles, for example, could reduce the efficiency of solar driven power plants by 20 percent, according to a 2009 study by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Ms. Field’s proposal benefits by being relatively inexpensive, relatively benign, and reversible, she said, adding that she has done small-scale tests in the Sierra Nevadas and on a Canadian lake, and that she is hoping to find funding for a larger test.
