"There are only three sports: bullfighting, mountain climbing and motor racing; all the rest are merely games." - Ernest Hemingway "Grand Prix racing is primarily a mental contest... it's a battle of strength of wills by the combatants and a magnificent contest, the arena to display and share unique gifts and talents. Perhaps in this 'theatre of speed', F1 is a metaphor for life itself" - craig lock A collection of articles on my great passion (or rather life-long obsession), motor racing, but especially Formula 1 and V8 Supercars (Australia). "I don't want to live a balanced life, I just want to win." * - Mario Andretti (1978 Formula One World Champion) * or words to that effect "I don't want to live a balanced life, I just want to write." "rather obsessive" craig "I have the words in me...and I just gotta get them out." "I'll write till I drop." By "a petrol-head couch pot-a-to" Enjoy About the submitter: Craig is a motor racing "fanatic" ( a "passionate petrol-head"), who believes in (and loves) helping others to find their passions and gifts... through encouraging people to reach out for, then accomplish their "wildest" dreams. He truly believes people can overcome obstacles, rise to any occasion, and accomplish their dreams, even 'Endless Possibilities, Far and Great Horizons' in life with enough FAITH and PERSISTENCE. The various books that Craig "felt inspired to write" (including his various books on motor racing and Formula 1) are available at: http: //www.amazon.com/-/e/B005GGMAW4 http: //www.amazon.com/s/ref=la_B005GGMAW4_sr?rh=i%3Abooks&field-author=Craig+Lock http: //goo.gl/vTpjk and http: //www.creativekiwis.com/amazon.html The submitter's motor racing blogs (with extracts from his various writings: articles, books and new manuscripts) are at http: //grandprixdriver.wordpress.com http: //grandprixchampion.wordpress.com/ http: //grandprixdrivermyblog.wordpress.com/ http: //godandformula1.wordpress.com/ http: //www.sportforpeace.wordpress.com and his various other blogs are at http: //craigsblogs.wordpress. Obsessive or WHAT! "Together, one mind, one life at a time, let's see how many people we can impact, encourage, empower, uplift and perhaps even inspire to reach their fullest potentials...and so become 'ever more champions of life'
The research area of motor control has become an increasingly multidisciplinary undertaking. Understanding the acquisition and performance of voluntary movements in biological and artificial systems requires the integration of knowledge from a range of disciplines such as neurophysiology, kinesiology, neuroscience, robotics, psychology, nonlinear dynamics, biomechanics and biology. This book brings together researchers from this wide range of disciplines to discuss the control and coordination of processes involved in perceptually guided actions.
This work focuses on the efforts of the Quartermaster Corps to apply the concept of standardization to the Army's motor transportation system. The experiences of the Quartermaster Corps and the automobile industry indicated that the most efficient and cost effective method of motorization was to adopt a fleet of standardized trucks with interchangeable components. To attain this goal, the Quartermaster Corps faced many obstacles: bureaucratic inertia, technological limitations, insufficient funding, and resistance from the truck industry. But, in 1940, as America prepared for war, thanks to the efforts of the Quartermaster Corps, the haphazard policies that had once governed truck procurement were superseded by a standardization policy that purchased predetermined makes and models of trucks manufactured specifically for Army service.
