How to Drift

Drifting is the newest, most exciting motorsport we have seen in the United States since the invention of the limited slip differential - it may be the most exhilarating contest of man and machine ever devised! From the winding mountain passes and desolate industrial roads of Japan, this unique sport of sliding a car sideways through a series of corners has become a huge hit in America. Drifting, or dorifto as they call it in Japan, extracts the most exciting aspect auto racing, extreme oversteer, and makes it the focus of an intense and visually intoxicating new motor sport. How to Drift: The Art of Oversteer is a comprehensive guide to both the driving technique and car setup required for drifting. The author defines various precision driving techniques used in drifting and explains them from a racecar driver’ s point of view. How to Drift illustrates the finer elements of car control required in drifting with technical descriptions, detailed line art and intense photography. This book even includes a budget drift car build-up with detailed suspension, chassis, and engine modifications that will help you turn your economy car into a drift machine— on top of that, there’ s a chapter detailing the finer aspects of an SR20DET swap!

A Beginners Guide To Drifting

To maintain an accurate line while going sideways is tricky, and will take lots of practice. This book is a true beginners guide to grasp the in's and out's of the drifting world. Topics include: What Is Drifting?, Is It Illegal?

A Beginners Guide To Drifting

As the fastest growing motorsport in the world, there are two main reasons why drifting has become so popular in recent years: that it's so much fun, but also that it's so accessible for everyday drivers. There are many different methods of inducing a drift, and your choice depends on the natural properties of your car. Once oversteer has been invoked, you'll need to control the drift using the throttle and counter steering. To maintain an accurate line while going sideways is tricky, and will take lots of practice. This book is a true beginners guide to grasp the in's and out's of the drifting world. Topics include: What Is Drifting?, Is It Illegal?, Drift competitions and Judging, Beginner techniques, Advanced Techniques, Common Vehicles, and Drift Tuning.

Drag Free Drift

Design, materials, knots, casting Includes LeaderCalc CD with tables for every variation of leader Fly fishermen often pay too little attention to the eight or nine feet of monafilament that connects their hundred dollars of gear to their fly. But this least expensive component-the leader-is the one most directly connected to fishing success. To fool a trout, a leader must drop a fly lightly on the water and then let it drift naturally, without drag. This groundbreaking work reveals the principles behind leaders that catch fish and provides everything you need to start tying your own, including the ideal proportions of butt, taper, and tippet, the best materials and knots for various applications, and how leaders can be modified and adapted. It also covers techniques of casting to minimize drag and enhance presentation.

The Drift

The Drift: Bonded By: Anne Nicholas and J.J. Robinson Donovan Ashwood wishes he was just a normal teenager. He already has the usual problems of an overbearing father, a bully at school, and, of course, school itself. On top of that, Donovan carries the guilt of his mother dying while giving birth to him. He tries to find solace in his only two friends: Brendan and Britney Palmer, twins with high IQs and a similar low social standing. But even that has problems because of the “more than friends” feelings he harbors for Britney. Donovan also has a supernatural problem. When he is of age, he will have the drift — the ability to turn, at will, into a seven-foot-tall werewolf. His father tries to guide Donovan and help prepare him for the drift, but strange events begin happening to him, culminating in a tragic event that turns his life upside down, opening up a new world he never even knew existed. Donovan will have to become much more than the normal teenager he longs to be and learn about his unusual and unexplainable power and how to control it — or else put his friends and himself in danger.

Drift

“This book was written late in the North American night, with the rumbling thuds and booming train horns of the nearby rail yard echoing through my windows, reminding me of the train hoppers and gutter punks out there rolling through the darkness.” In Drift, Jeff Ferrell shows how dislocation and disorientation can become phenomena in their own right. Examining the history of drifting, Ferrell situates the contemporary global phenomenon of drift within today’s economic, social, and cultural dynamics. He also highlights a distinctly North American form of drift—that of the train-hopping hobo—by tracing the hobo’s political history and by sharing his own immersion in the world of contemporary train-hoppers. Along the way, Ferrell sheds light on the ephemeral intensity of drifting communities and explores the contested politics of drift—the legal and political strategies designed to control drifters in the interest of economic development, the irony by which these strategies spawn further social and spatial exclusion, and the ways in which drifters and those who embrace drift create their own slippery strategies of resistance. With an eye toward the truth, Ferrell keenly argues that the lessons of drift can provide us with new models for knowing and engaging with the world around us.

Neural Information Processing

Regarding to those drifting points that are mixed with normal points, it is because of that the random data at that time does not have a clear drift distribution and the later time step was recognized as drift point.

Drift

Whether you are a new believer, coming back to your faith, or have been diligently following for years, this book will help you develop the necessary skills to set your direction through life rather than merely drift.

Drift

The dictionary defines drift as "a driving movement or force." While on a ship at sea, drift is caused from the force of winds and the current. Your life will experience all kinds of forces that will cause you to drift just the same. If you're unaware of those influences in your life, most likely, you'll end up in a place you never intended to go. Jesus didn't die on the cross just to set you free from sin. He died to set you free from drifting throughout this life! DRIFT will challenge you in practical ways to be more intentional in your day to day life. Learn how to get more out of your Bible. Discover how to hear God's voice in prayer. Develop the necessary perspective to break through your past hurt, pain & loss. Whether you are a new believer, coming back to your faith, or have been diligently following for years, this book will help you develop the necessary skills to set your direction through life rather than merely drift.

Continental Drift

Continental Drift: Colliding Continents, Converging Cultures is as much an account of the impressions Western culture made on Constantin Roman as a young researcher from behind the Iron Curtain as a personal history of the developing new science of plate tectonics. The book elucidates the author's struggles against a web of bureaucracy to secure his rights in the free world while exploring historical events. A refined observer of the contrast of cultures between East and West, Roman's personal story relates his encounters with eminent scientists, artists, and embassy officials. Constantin Roman defied communist restrictions by coming to England in 1968 on a NATO travel grant. After being encouraged by Keith Runcorn at the University of Newcastle to stay in Britain for a higher degree, he received a Ph.D. scholarship at the University of Cambridge. This is where he studied under Sir Edward Bullard when plate tectonics was in its infancy, when the concepts of continental drift and sea floor spreading were galvanizing geology. As a continental student adrift on English shores, Roman soon staked his claim on the plate tectonics map with his work on the deep earthquakes of the Carpathians. But the stakes became higher with a race against the clock to be the first to publish a plate tectonics solution to the Himalayan earthquakes. Continental Drift delves into all of this and more. It will delight earth scientists, physicists, and general readers as well as historians of science, who will find a wealth of personal recollections of key figures in the continental drift story.

The Drift of Sea Ice

Ice ̄oe information is implicitly included in the continuum theory in that the validity of continuum hypothesis requires that the drift ice particle size should be an order of magnitude greater than the characteristic ̄oe size (see Eq.

The Drift of Sea Ice

The Second Edition of The Drift of Sea Ice presents the fundamental laws of sea ice drift which come from the material properties of sea ice and the basic laws of mechanics. The resulting system of equations is analysed for the general properties of sea ice drift, the free drift model and analytical models for ice drift in the presence of internal friction, and the construction of numerical ice drift models is detailed. This second edition of a much lauded work, unique on this topic in the English language, has been revised, updated and expanded with much new information and outlines recent results, in particular in relation to the climate problem, mathematical modelling and ice engineering applications. The current book presents the theory, observations, mathematical modelling techniques, and applications of sea ice drift science. The theory is presented from the beginning on a graduate student level, so that students and researchers coming from other fields such as physical oceanography, meteorology, physics, engineering, environmental sciences or geography can use the book as a source book or self-study material. First the drift ice material is presented ending with the concept of ‘ice state’ – the relevant properties in sea ice dynamics. Ice kinematics observations are widely presented with the mathematical analysis methods, and thereafter come drift ice rheology – to close the triangle material – kinematics – stress. The momentum equation of sea ice is derived in detail and its general properties are carefully analysed. Then follow two chapters on analytical models: free drift and drift in the presence of internal friction: These are very important tools in understanding the dynamical behaviour of sea ice. The last topical chapter is numerical models, which are the modern tool to solve ice dynamics problem in short term and long term problems. The closing chapter summarises sea ice dynamics applications and the need of sea ice dynamic knowledge and gives some final remarks on the future of this branch of science.

I'm not crazy. My mother may have died with everyone believing she was insane, but I refuse to accept that as my fate. Even if I am recalling memories about a life I never lived. A life that includes the mysterious James—a guy I've only just met, but feel as if I've known all my life. The memories are coming hard and fast, and I'm falling down a rabbit hole with consequences that far exceed anything I could have ever imagined. And now, someone is trying to kill me. Someone from my past who knows about my visions and is looking for something he believes I took from him. All I have to do is figure out how these memories relate to the present and maybe I'll survive to live another day. Maybe...

Evolution and the Levels of Selection

Does natural selection act primarily on individual organisms, on groups, on genes, or on whole species? Samir Okasha provides a comprehensive analysis of the debate in evolutionary biology over the levels of selection, focusing on conceptual, philosophical and foundational questions. A systematic framework is developed for thinking about natural selection acting at multiple levels of the biological hierarchy; the framework is then used to help resolve outstanding issues. Considerable attention is paid to the concept of causality as it relates to the levels of selection, in particular the idea that natural selection at one hierarchical level can have effects that 'filter' up or down to other levels. Unlike previous work in this area by philosophers of science, full account is taken of the recent biological literature on 'major evolutionary transitions' and the recent resurgence of interest in multi-level selection theory among biologists. Other biological topics discussed include Price's equation, kin and group selection, the gene's eye view, evolutionary game theory, outlaws and selfish genetic elements, species and clade selection, and the evolution of individuality. Philosophical topics discussed include reductionism and holism, causation and correlation, the nature of hierarchical organization, and realism and pluralism.

Body Drift

As exemplary representatives of a form of critical feminism, the writings of Judith Butler, Katherine Hayles, and Donna Haraway offer entry into the great crises of contemporary society, politics, and culture. Butler leads readers to rethink the boundaries of the human in a time of perpetual war. Hayles turns herself into a "writing machine" in order to find a dwelling place for the digital humanities within the austere landscape of the culture of the code. Haraway is the one contemporary thinker to have begun the necessary ethical project of creating a new language of potential reconciliation among previously warring species. According to Arthur Kroker, the postmodernism of Judith Butler, the posthumanism of Katherine Hayles, and the companionism of Donna Haraway are possible pathways to the posthuman future that is captured by the specter of body drift. Body drift refers to the fact that individuals no longer inhabit a body, in any meaningful sense of the term, but rather occupy a multiplicity of bodies: gendered, sexualized, laboring, disciplined, imagined, and technologically augmented. Body drift is constituted by the blast of information culture envisioned by artists, communicated by social networking, and signified by its signs. It is lived daily by remixing, resplicing, and redesigning the codes: codes of gender, sexuality, class, ideology, and identity. The writings of Butler, Hayles, and Haraway, Kroker reveals, provide the critical vocabulary and political context for understanding the deep complexities of body drift and challenging the current emphasis on the material body.
