Much of the early part of the day was spent on survival theory, hypothermia and lessons learned from the likes of the MV Lovat tragedy of The Lovat was a coaster loaded with coal dust from Swansea destined for the power stations of England when she foundered some thirty miles off Lands End in severe January weather. Their cold hands being unable to undo the wrappings of the survival pack, all things that have since been rectified by legislation and experience, like the number of LSA carried and type of packaging on survival packs. Sadly however the morphine had to be deleted due to the amount of junkies breaking open life rafts to steal it When I was younger it was still in the first aid kit, now you have to make do with aspirin Of the thirteen crew from the Lovat only two survived despite possible salvation being on the scene within minutes. Being a diver and having spent many hours in cold water, albeit well protected I was not surprised that so few survived, hearing that the Penlee lifeboat http: For it was the very same lifeboat that picked up the bodies from the sea after Lovat foundered that responded to the Union Star five years later.

History[ edit ] In Robert acquired the UK rights to manufacture and sell Danish engineer Mikael Pedersen ‘s new cream separator , which through a spinning centrifugal separator allowed the machine to run at a constant speed and hence create a regular consistency of cream. Listers had redesigned Pedersen’s cream separator, expanded its lines of sheep shearing machinery, was producing milk churns and wooden barrels for butter , and from the off-cuts developed a successful line of wood-based garden furniture.

Petrol engines[ edit ] In the company acquired manufacturing rights from the London -based firm of F. During World War I , the factory was focused solely on War Department production, producing petrol engines, lighting sets and munitions. George managed home sales and Frank was in charge of buying, while Cecil did not have a clearly defined role at all, and, although Robert was the eldest, it was Percy later Sir Percy who had by far the most significant impact.

The contract stipulated that a four-cylinder Ford-based F2 engine would be developed as proof of concept see the FVA above and that a pure Cosworth V8 would be built based on this. Although originally designed for Formula One, the engine has been modified to be used in a range of categories. During the s, it was common for almost the entire field with the notable exception of Ferrari to use one of these engines — this at a time when independent wealthy individuals could buy exactly the same engine off the shelf that was also being used by McLaren et al.

It won a record World Championship races, the last being Detroit in , powering a Tyrrell driven by Michele Alboreto. Although the DFV bore: In addition to being lighter, it was also made a structural part of the car itself, by placing load bearing arms to stress the block. These design aspects appealed tremendously to the genius of Colin Chapman who used them to the fullest extent. The DFZ was produced as an interim model, but in Cosworth created the DFV’s final evolution, the DFR, which soldiered on in F1 with smaller teams until , scoring its last points — including a pair of second places by Jean Alesi — with Tyrrell in In ; Cosworth created the DFV’s first derivation, a 2, cubic centimetres DFV to DFW conversion simply involved substitution of a short-stroke crank and longer connecting rods.

Ford backed Cosworth with creating a new interim design for IndyCar racing in the late s, the DFS, which merged DFR technology into the ageing DFX design, but it was eventually rendered obsolete by advancing technology. While designed as an F1 engine, the DFV was also used as in endurance racing, although its flat-plane crank design led to destructive vibrations putting stress on devices surrounding the engine, especially the exhaust system.

The first sports car to use a DFV, the Ford P68 , failed to finish a single race because of repeated mechanical and electrical failures. It came in two versions:

As is usual for the weekend, I go through the main gate and workshop on my way to Hallaig, passing this humongous rolling machine on the way. The hybrid Lochinvar is not the first Macbrayne vessel to bear that name. Of course it was clean fresh water for probably the last time in its life but it was good practice for the future when it will be dirty oil.

Whilst I was doing this the Ticon chaps were busy with the never ending job of insulating both inside and out. Super safe A good deal of the rest of my day was spent studying and familiarizing myself once more with the multitude of fire prevention and fire fighting systems on this vessel. Of course the acres of insulation is an integral part of it but the number of fire pumps, alarms, drencher systems, suppression devices, and extinguishers on this ship is staggering.

After formation in , the company started out making agricultural implements including chaff cutters, corn crushers, oat cleaners, land rollers, horse gears, chain harrows and stone grinding mills. By the s it was manufacturing the Dursley Pedersen Cycle and dairy equipment, especially cream separators which it shipped in volume. Petrol engines followed in the early 20th century which went on to be a mainstay of the company until diesels began to be produced in

Images shown below are by no means a definitive guide as to the identification of Lister diesel engines, but show general ranges in certain specifications.

Born 15 May ; died 19 Apr at age His studies of radioactive substances were made together with his wife, Marie Curie, whom he married in They were achieved under conditions of much hardship – barely adequate laboratory facilities and under the stress of having to do much teaching in order to earn their livelihood. Together, they discovered radium and polonium in their investigation of radioactivity by fractionation of pitchblende announced in Later they did much to elucidate the properties of radium and its transformation products.

Their work in this era formed the basis for much of the subsequent research in nuclear physics and chemistry. Fleming Born 15 May ; died 21 May at age Edward Pickering, director of the Harvard Observatory first employed Fleming as a maid, but in hired her to do clerical work and some mathematical calculations at the Observatory. She further proved capable of doing science. After devising her system of classifying stars by their spectra, she cataloged over 10, stars within the next nine years.

Her duties were expanded and she was put in charge of dozens of young women hired to do mathematical computations as now done by computers. German neurologist who related nerve diseases to specific areas of the brain.

Prioleau , who has a Ph. Using modern psychological research, biographies and interviews of actual renowned seducers, and examples from modern romance novels to illustrate what women actually want, Prioleau elucidates the features that the majority of these men possess which keep women enthralled. The romance reader will find many common themes in terms of the personality traits of their favorite heroes, but the romance writer can mine numerous ideas from the data and the examples she offers.

Yet rock star Rod Stewart never had a problem getting women even prior to his immense success, despite his physical appearance resembling a legally blind electrician which would explain the hair and the poor clothing choices. Perhaps the most interesting point when analyzing men considered prime seducers throughout history is that appearance has absolutely nothing to do with it. Mick Jagger or Rod Stewart anyone? Neither of them are tops in the looks department but there are other qualities besides being uber-rich rock stars that give them that panty-tossing quality.

Another side of the morality coin is the display of kindness or benevolence.

Casanova so won the loyalty of the women with whom he had affairs that he had medical care and comforts lavished him on his deathbed by past lovers who heard of his plight. Courage — Prioleau cites the recent study indicating that women actually value bravery more than kindness in men.
