Posted on 18 January Tags: Kathy Levine stood me up…or so I thought. I had booked an interview with the famously former QVC host this past fall, and one rainy November night headed down to West Chester to her beautiful home in a private development. I was prepared for a formal sit down with the renowned Philadelphia personality, sales aficionado and national home shopping celebrity. Just as I believed I either had the wrong address or date or some combination of both…a porch light turned on and out of nowhere Kathy Levine swung open the front door.
Levine is profusely apologetic and immediately endearing as she explains she just arrived home from watching her two young grandchildren in north Jersey and was running a bit behind schedule.
Arafat should remember who saved him in Lebanon; it was no power in the Middle East that brokered his exodus and parted the waves of Israeli planes and tanks for his safe passage to the desert.
This article provides the history of Hot Wheels. Contents Timeline Elliot Handler, co-founder of Mattel, decided to produce a line of die-cast toy cars for boys. His idea was to capture a portion of the huge market for small car models dominated at that time by the British company Lesney Products with their Matchbox cars. Although his executives thought it was a bad idea, the cars were a big success.
There were sixteen castings released in , eleven of them designed by Harry Bentley Bradley, with the first one produced being a dark blue Custom Camaro. Although Bradley was from the car industry, he had not designed the full-functioning versions of the real cars, except the Dodge Deora concept car, which had been built by Mike and Larry Alexander. Another of his notable designs was the Custom Fleetside, which was based on his own heavily-customized ’64 El Camino. All sixteen of the cars featured ‘Spectraflame’ paintwork, bearings, redline wheels, and working suspension.
Because ‘Hot Pink’ was considered a “girls color”, it was not used very much on Hot Wheels cars. For most castings, it is the hardest color to find, and today can command prices ten times as high as more common colors. In order for the cars to go fast on the plastic track, Mattel chose a cheap, durable, low-friction plastic called Delrin to use as a bushing between the axle and wheel. The result was cars that could go up to scale mph.
History of Technology Heroes and Villains – A little light reading Here you will find a brief history of technology. Initially inspired by the development of batteries, it covers technology in general and includes some interesting little known, or long forgotten, facts as well as a few myths about the development of technology, the science behind it, the context in which it occurred and the deeds of the many personalities, eccentrics and charlatans involved.
You may find the Search Engine , the Technology Timeline or the Hall of Fame quicker if you are looking for something or somebody in particular. Scroll down and see what treasures you can discover. Background We think of a battery today as a source of portable power, but it is no exaggeration to say that the battery is one of the most important inventions in the history of mankind. Volta’s pile was at first a technical curiosity but this new electrochemical phenomenon very quickly opened the door to new branches of both physics and chemistry and a myriad of discoveries, inventions and applications.
Her irrepressible personality, combined with an awesome confidence and sincerity, made for the perfect package.
Brakes Older Raleigh-made brakes used special cables with moulded ends on both ends of the cables, as shown. These cables are no longer available. They were supplied in different configurations for front, gent’s rear and lady’s rear applications. The cable came with the adjusting barrel. To replace the cable assembly, you would unbolt the adjusting barrel from the caliper. These cables can often be revived by dripping oil into them and working them back and forth.
Later Raleigh-made brakes used standard cables with conventional anchor bolts. Chainguard Braze-ons Older models had a braze-on with a tapped hole on the right chain stay , behind the chainwheel , to secure a full chaincase. Some later models had simple braze-ons on the seat tube and down tube to secure a “hockey-stick” chainguard.
Fork Ends Older models had forged front fork ends , which are 3-dimensional, and are round where they fit into the end of the fork blade. These fork ends are countersunk on the outer surface, to accommodate the old-style axle nuts which had a shoulder that fit through the washer. The shoulder provided secondary wheel retention. Later models had flat, stamped fork ends, fitted into domed and slotted fork blades.

Under current Department for Transport plans the upgrading of the London to Sheffield line will stop at Kettering.
It had promised to electrify the whole route but changed its mind last summer. East Midlands politicians and businesses were furious when the Government reneged on its promise for full electrification and vowed to get the project back on track. Staff working on electrified train lines They argued the region was been penalised because of a failure to prevent spiralling costs of the electrification of the Great Western Mainline.

But here are a few examples of things that were meant to come to Swansea – but never did so far! The Tidal Lagoon Image: The lagoon would comprise a six-mile, U-shaped seawall between the Tawe and Neath river channels.
Seawater would flow through 16 turbines on the ebb and flow tides, generating the equivalent electricity used by , households for years. The privately-funded proposal by Tidal Lagoon Power had many supporters in Swansea and further afield, including former energy minister Charles Hendry who was asked by the UK Government to review the case for tidal lagoon energy. It was estimated that the lagoon, while creating nearly 2, construction jobs during its projected two-year construction period, would only provide 28 direct full-time jobs when operational.
However, the UK Government decided the project did not offer value for money. The plans were resurrected last month as alternative options for procuring, constructing, funding and operating the lagoon are looked at. The bid was backed by big names including Catherine Zeta-Jones, as well as businesses across the county, and Swansea City FC and the Ospreys rugby club. But it was not to be. Prime Minister Theresa May personally took the decision to cancel electrification.
At the time, Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said the decision was taken because electrification was not necessary to deliver passenger benefits. Mr Grayling said journey times between Cardiff and Swansea would not be affected, as new bi-mode trains — which would switch from electric to diesel at Cardiff Central Railway Station — would be just as fast as if the section was electrified.
