By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, Ph.D.

How steep a hill could a car climb? Ten degrees? Twenty? Don’t try this in the neighborhood, but could a car go straight up a vertical wall? Yes, 90 degrees?!

Ten degrees doesn’t sound like much but is actually a pretty steep incline. Still, a car could do this fairly easily. The power train of a typical passenger car can develop torque equivalent to about half the vehicle’s weight, says University of Michigan professor of automotive engineering Thomas D. Gillespie. So most cars could ascend a slope of up to 30 degrees, or grade of 58%. Four-wheel drive vehicles with low range can do better, with many having POWER to go right up a vertical wall. Top dragsters are the best, says Gillespie. At launch, they accelerate at 5 g’s, which would be equivalent to climbing the wall while dragging four other dragsters behind it! But these are just raw horsepower considerations. Next problem: Sufficient friction of tires against the roadway-wall. That’s trickier, but mechanical and computer engineering specialist Ian Charnas poses a way. Build a road that starts flat and curves slowly upward. As dragster speed builds, the road curves up steeper & steeper. The vehicle should be equipped with spoilers - like upside-down airfoils - shaped not for lift but for downpressure, to lend added frictional force against the roadway-runway. Given sufficient power train & speed, the right road curve & spoiler aerodynamics, the dragster just might be driveable vertically skyward! Heavens to old rocketin’ Betsy! P.S. To take this really over the top, says Charnas, a 2001 Bentley EXP Speed 8 at 150 mph develops a reported 3094 pounds downforce. Since the car weighs only 2020 pounds, “there would be no problem driving it upside down!”

How Current Events Affect Your Pocketbook

so have the actions of a few bankers impacted the lives of ordinary Americans,” stresses Zuckerman, whose new book draws from real world crises to illustrate what can happen when a powerful cartel manipulates valuable resources for its own ends.

(StatePoint) All politics are local. Or so the saying goes. But is it really true? Do events halfway across the world affect your family, health and money? These days, the answer seems to be a resounding yes.

And while Americans remain resourceful, layoffs and the difficulty of securing mortgages or small business loans from one of these banks continues to impact local families.

“All too often, the interests of a few dictate world affairs and people’s daily lives,” says Gordon Zuckerman, a former businessman and Harvard Business School graduate who now writes historical thrillers based on his knowledge of global current events.

For example, 90 percent of the world’s oil production is controlled by only seven sovereign nations today. This monopolization of control means that unrest in these countries likely will drive up the price of gas and other petroleum-related products -- something that can be hard on your wallet during a family vacation. The centralization of control is so vast, dating back to post-World War II reconstruction in Europe, that Zuckerman was able to use it as a basis for his newly-released historical novel, “Crude Deception.” Sometimes, current events can be both burdensome and uplifting to the local economy. For example, many Americans think universal healthcare will hurt their

Current events also affect your investments. News of corruptive practices, such as environmentally unsafe manufacturing, can lead a company’s stock to plummet. If you own that stock as part of your retirement plan, you will be affected by the news. Many experts now urge people to invest in corporations whose values are transparent and fair. A company that takes a stance against environmental pollution is less likely to commit such actions.

Current events abroad and at home impact the price of gas. pocketbook by increasing taxes. At the same time, good healthcare and prevention has been shown to increase productivity at work, since people are less likely to call in sick or take medical leaves. So, if you’re in business for yourself or choose to work a second job, this can have huge benefits to your wallet. It also fosters independence and imagination, say

experts, as people who are in good health can then create companies and jobs of their own. Domestic current events in the U.S. also can influence your money and livelihood. For example, the behavior of a few “big” banks led to the global economic meltdown of 2008. “Just as a few oil companies have controlled the energy market,

To see how current events influenced Zuckerman’s life and work, visit www. Then begin reading about current events at home. Local problems are just as likely to affect your pocketbook as global catastrophes, but you may have more power to do something about them.

***Prayer Through Application of the Holy Spirit***

Holy Spirit, You who solve all problems; light all roads so that I can attain my goal. You give me the divine gift to forgive & forget all evil against me, that in all instances of life you are with me. I want in this prayer to thank you for all things, confirming that I never want to separate from you. In spite of material illusion, I wish to be with you in eternal glory. Thank you for your mercy toward me & mine. The person must say this prayer for (3) consecutive days. Your prayer will be answered after (3) days even if it appears difficult.

Warmer Weather, Longer Days call for an ample blood supply. As winter begins turning to spring, the days get longer & activities increase. Spring is the season when life is renewed. One important way to help renew life is to give blood. “Giving blood during springtime can be a great tradition, like spring cleaning, and it’s a gift that the recipient will always remember,” said Lori Liebman, Donor Recruitment Director of Rapid City’s United Blood Services. By giving blood, a donor helps replenish a community resource used by a neighbor, relative or friend. Blood can be stored for only 42 days, so a continual fresh supply is crucial. Anyone may need blood at any time. In the event of an accident, serious illness, or surgery, an adequate blood supply will make the difference between life & death. Make your appointment to give blood at or by calling 605-342-8585 in Rapid City. With each donation, donors receive a free total cholesterol test & earn points in United Blood Services’ Hero in Me reward program.
