$10K Drag Shootout 2: Engine Profile — Midwest Mayhem

A group of friends who race together an extreme amount (by “normal” people’s standards), Team Midwest Mayhem has a very impressive level of combined knowledge and experience. After the vehicle-choice round of competition, the midwesterners wound up with the G-body — which definitely has a street-racing pedigree — in the form of a 1979 Oldsmobile Cutlass. While the G-body offers tons of room in the engine bay for all sorts of activities, Midwest Mayhem opted for a compact LS engine. Not only is their bullet of choice physically compact, but it’s also the smallest-displacement engine of the competition. While 75-percent of the teams in the competition have chosen the LS engine, Midwest Mayhem team-leader and engine-guy, Joe Hunt, opted for the smallest 4.8-liter variant. Not only is the team relying on their turbocharger to be the replacement for displacement, but they are taking the whole “stock bottom end” thing to the extreme. The team has a good reason for going with the 4.8-liter. They didn’t just pick up any old LS engine out of a junkyard; instead, they scored a Gen-IV 4.8-liter for $200. The Gen-IV LS engines have improved connecting rods and the cast 4.8-liter cranks are ...

What was the UK’s song of the summer? This massive data dump reveals all

Summer isn’t officially over until 23 September, but as the nights draw in and the temperature drops, it’s time to consider who had the season’s top song. On YouTube, though, the duo were beaten by Lil Nas X’s Old Town Road, while Shazam’s chart was topped by Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello’s Señorita. For a decisive verdict, we need the Official Charts Company – who combine sales and streaming figures to come up with a definitive placings for summer’s biggest songs. …Justin and Ed’s I Don’t Care, which came out on top with the equivalent of 755,000 sales, made up of 90 million streams and 115,000 downloads. Like the best summer songs, it doesn’t take itself too seriously – the video sees the two A-listers dressing up as ice creams and bananas as they sing about escaping a boring party with their girlfriends. Musically, the song is built around the Tresillo, or Dembow, rhythm – a syncopated beat that’s become a mainstay of summer songs, from Luis Fonsi’s Despacito to Sheeran’s own Shape of You. Originating in Africa, the boom-ti-boom-chk rhythm made its way to Cuba in the 19th ...

Tesla first said it had an electric pickup truck coming. Then start-up company Rivian stole the spotlight with its R1T concept. Ford confirmed there’s an electric F-150 in the pipeline. Finally, GM said it too has an electric pickup on the horizon. That’s a lot of movement for a segment that, analysts said, shows little evidence of demand. The Detroit Free Press reported on the sudden boom in electric pickup trucks in a Saturday report, but there is no clear signal flocks of buyers will be ready to trade in their traditional workhorses for electric ones. Perhaps the main reason automakers want to tell the world about electric trucks is the fear of being left behind—a case of “covering the bases,” so to speak. If automakers fail to develop the vehicle, someone else could take the spotlight, and no one does trucks like General Motors, Ford, and Fiat Chrysler. That “someone” so far has been Rivian. Th...

How Portland got a bus/bike only lane on Southwest Madison

On May 17th, the Portland Bureau of Transportation (PBOT) issued a press release to announce a reconfiguration of SW Madison Street aimed at faster bus service. “The upgrade of SW Madison is the first Central City in Motion project to be implemented, just six months after the plan was passed by Portland City Council,” the press release touted. Five days later it was done. But for a handful of transportation advocates, the work began two years earlier. Today we’re peeling back the curtain to share what went on behind the scenes. The summer of 2017 was bad for traffic. From April to October the Morrison Bridge, which carries 50,000 vehicles a day, closed access to downtown through the summer for construction. Less than a week into the closure, the Oregonian reported, “Much of the morning traffic has shifted to the Hawthorne Bridge, which has been clogged from about 7 to 10 [a.m.] for most of the week.” On May 4th of that year, local lawyer and transportation advocate Alan Kessler posted a video of the backup on Twitter: It is time for @trimet and @MultCoBridges to open the outer lane on Hawthorne for transit only. This is utterly absurd. pic.twitter.com/sQ8lwqazkb One week later,...

Using grey water for many of the water needs in a home or garden that don’t

Using grey water for many of the water needs in a home or garden that don’t require potable water can help reduce stresses on water supplies, lower home water usage and costs, and support a thriving landscape. If you just crawled out from under a rock, you can be forgiven for not knowing that fresh water is a precious resource, and that using it, and reusing it, wisely, is a key component of trying to live more sustainably. And with the extended drought conditions in many parts of the US, as well as in many other parts of the world, water issues are one of our most pressing challenges. One effective strategy lies in reducing the overall demand for fresh water, through water-wise landscaping, rainwater harvesting, water-efficient appliances and fixtures, and implementing manufacturing processes with lower water needs than conventional methods. But even after reducing water usage initially, a lot of the water that goes down the drain is essentially wasted, and could be put to good use as grey water in the home and yard. Not all grey water is the same, as the water coming from the kitchen sink or dishwasher can contain a lot of organic matter and has the potential for harbori...
