Back muscles are the principal beneficia-ries of this exercise, yet the abdominal musclesare not slighted, and even the thighs comein for a moderate share of help. The com-posite benefit to the student is that thismovement enables him to carry himself moreeasily and with the weight of his body welldistributed. After halting the exercise on thefifth or sixth morning the man who is doingit well is rather conscious of the fact that heis standing both comfortably and well. At the beginning of the bend exhale thebreath. Inhale deeply on returning to erectposition. This may, at first thought, appearto be a reversal of the usual breathing methodin these movements. The reason for exhalingduring the bend and inhaling while return-ing is that the lungs are then filled for thenext bend, which is the harder half of themovement.

in Wikipedia

The Jaguar XK120 was a sports car manufactured by Jaguar between 1948 and 1954. It was the first post-war sports car from the marque, succeeding the SS 100 which ended production in 1940 with the start of the war in Britain. The XK120 was launched at the 1948 London Motor Show as a test bed and show vehicle to highlight the new Jaguar XK engine. The car caused a sensation, which persuaded William Lyons to put it into production as a standard model.
The first cars manufactured in 1948 and 1949 had hand built aluminum bodies on an ash frame. Jaguar built 240 of these alloy bodied cars prior to moving to a more mass production XK120 in order to meet the demand for this popular model. With the 1950 model year a production version had a steel pressed body with alloy doors, bonnet, and trunk skin. Other features included torsion bar front suspension, and a removable windscreen.
Power came from a dual overhead cam 3.4 L straight-6 engine, Jaguar’s famous XK engine. With an alloy cylinder head and twin side draft SU carburators, the XK engine was very advanced for a mass produced unit, developing 160 bhp with the standard 8:1 compression ratio. This same basic design of the XK engine was used in 3.8L and 4.2L versions into the late 1980s.
The XK120 name referred to the vehicle’s impressive 120 mph (193 km/h) top speed – even faster with the windscreen removed – and at the time of its launch it was the world’s fastest standard production car[1]. It was available as a coupe (FHC or Fixed Head Coupe, introduced in 1951), convertible (DHC or Drop Head Coupe, 1953), or the original roadster (OTS or Open Two Seater). An XK120 FHC can claim the only import win in NASCAR when it won NASCAR’s first road race at Linden Airport, New Jersey, June 13th, 1954 with Al Keller at the wheel. Earlier in the year, on 31 January / 1 February, an XK120 Coupe driven by Mrs D Anderson, Chas Swinburne and Bill Pitt had won the first 24 hour car race to be held in Australia, the 1954 Mt. Druitt 24 Hours Road Race.
The Roadster had a very light weight canvas top and removable side curtains screwed to the doors, which had no external handle – to open them you reached through the screen to pull a cord on the inside. It also had a removeable windscreen, which could be removed so that "aeroscreens" could be fitted. The DHC or Drop Head Coupe had a padded top and roll up windows. Both the FHC and DHC had an elegant wood veneer dash, whereas the roadster’s was leather. All models were manufactured with spats to cover the back wheel arch which enhanced the streamlined look, but when optional (from 1951) wire wheels were fitted, the spats had to be removed to make room for the hub spinners. There was also an M version (called SE for Special Equipment in England) which included increased power, stiffer suspension, dual exhaust, and wire wheels.

Details, quoting from Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: Steven F. Udvar-Hazy | Nakajima J1N1-S Gekko (Moonlight) IRVING:

Originally designed as a three-seat, daylight escort fighter plane by the Nakajima Aeroplane Company, Ltd., and flown in 1941, the IRVING was modified as a night fighter in May of 1943 and shot down two American B-17 bombers to prove its capability. The Gekko (meaning moonlight) was redesigned to hold only two crewmen so that an upward firing gun could be mounted where the observer once sat. Nearly five hundred J1N1 aircraft, including prototypes, escort, reconnaissance, and night fighters were built during World War II. A sizeable number were also used as Kamikaze aircraft in the Pacific. The few that survived the war were scrapped by the Allies.

This J1N1 is the last remaining in the world. It was transported from Japan to the U.S. where it was flight tested by the U.S. Army Air Forces in 1946. The Gekko then flew to storage at Park Ridge, IL, and was transferred to the Smithsonian Institution. The restoration of this aircraft, completed in 1983, took more than four years and 17,000 man-hours to accomplish.

Details, quoting from Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum: Steven F. Udvar-Hazy | Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay":

Boeing’s B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Although designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a variety of aerial weapons: conventional bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons.

On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance weather reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Great Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on both missions.

Get Off Those Unwanted Pounds By Following This Great Advice!

Most people have no idea where they need to start when they first investigate methods for improving their overall fitness. The below article provides excellent advice to help you begin without getting discouraged. If you’re ready to be successful when becoming physically fit, then use this advice to your advantage.

If you are just starting a workout routine you should consider a one time consultation with one of the gym’s personal trainers. A good one will discuss your goals, as well as your problem areas, to determine the best workout plan for you. Although your first gym session can be scary, you can breeze right through it by hiring a professional to get you started. Having a trainer will help you get started on a plan that work for you and to which you can commit.

Push-ups are an oldie-but-goodie for getting the jiggle out of your triceps. Only instead of doing a normal-style push-up, you can directly target the triceps by turning your hands in 45 degrees, until your fingertips are facing each other. This technique targets and tones your hard-to-work triceps unlike any other exercise.

Mix up your routines with various kinds of exercises. A varied routine makes it easier to stay focused and motivated when you are trying to become more fit. Also, once your muscles become acclimated to a particular set of exercises, you stop getting as much benefit from that workout.

Do not do just sit ups or crunches to exercise your abs. A study at a prominent university revealed that even 250,000 crunches only burns enough calories to lose just one pound. Simply doing only crunches means that you aren’t getting as much of a workout as you need. This is why you are going to want to do a wide variety of abdominal workouts.

Personal Trainer

Investing in a personal trainer is a wise investment if you can afford it. Not only will a personal trainer have a professional insight to share, but they will give you the motivation to stick with an exercise routine. Not everyone will want a personal trainer, but for those that do, will see a huge impact.

Take on the exercises that you normally avoid. The theory behind this is that people tend to avoid exercises that they are weakest at. Perform these exercises until you are accustomed to them.

Do you want to make you exercise routine super efficient? You can increase your strength by as much as 20 percent by starting with stretches. Stretch between sets; 30 seconds of stretching can make your muscles long and lean and keep you flexible and strong. You can make your work out more effective with this kind of stretch.

As a way to strengthen the muscles in your forearms, try an excellent tip from people who play racquet sports. Start by placing a large sheet of newspaper on a table or some other flat surface. With your dominant hand, crumble up the whole piece of paper for approximately 30 minutes. Perform this exercise twice. Then, try this again with your other hand only once. You can then repeat this twice with the dominant hand again.

Kickboxing is phenomenal exercise. People who try kickboxing often leave feeling amazed at how sweaty, and yet how exhilarated, they are. You will get rid of many calories kickboxing and get stronger, too.

If you are looking to speed up your strength building, try exercising the same amount but cutting your exercise time by 10%. This routine will work your muscles harder and will increase your endurance. If your ordinary work out takes a half hour, for instance, try cutting it down to 27 minutes when you exercise in the future.

Volleyball is about good contact skills. It might sound crazy, but foosball makes a great training exercise for these skills. It requires hand-eye coordination and other essential skills in order to beat an opponent. These very skills can be practiced and improved upon to not only win at Foosball, but volleyball as well.

If you want your fitness level to improve, you’re going to have to have a plan of action. Use the ideas in this article to formulate a plan, and start on the road to health and fitness. Don’t get discouraged if you’re not sure where to start. The information that you just read is a good first step to starting this process.
