free spm Actually these were world class boxers. USSR has most boxing medals in Olympic history. And these boxers here were not allowed to turn pro until 1997. Most of current boxing training methodology is copied straight from Russian Olympic school (Kettlebells, Olympic lifts)

italy has no pro boxing but if italian amateur boxers can make it to pro boxing, they can dominate boxing.

There's just no platform for pro boxers in cuba, it's the same in italy, these guys just stay amateurs because it's difficult for them to get signed unless they go to america. But just look at the ones who have turned pro, Rigondeux and Ortiz for example, Highly skilled fighters and both the most avoided men in their respective divisions

you have to fill out form 8300 if you make over $10,000 cash deposit to a bank account within a year to avoid conflict with IRS.

What Deposits Are Reported to the IRS?

Your bank business is not always your own business: the IRS might be in on the transaction as well. In an effort to keep tabs on money gained from illegal activities, the agency requires the reporting of certain deposits and, of course, there's a form and procedures for that. Banks aren't the only ones reporting large deposits; the IRS rules apply to any transaction carried out by a business or an individual.

Cash and Form 8300
When you deposit $10,000 or more in cash at the bank, the IRS requires the bank to complete a Form 8300. This form is for reporting any transaction or series of related transactions in which the total sum is $10,000 or more; a pair of $5,000 deposits, for example, will also wind up on Form 8300. Related transactions are any transactions (such as deposits) that occur within 24 hours, or are transactions the person or business receiving the money has reason to believe are related.

Time Frame
If there are two or more "related" deposits within a 12-month period that result in a total deposit of more than $10,000, then the IRS requires a report. The payments must be made in the course of ordinary business and received from a single payer. The rules apply to individuals as well as banks and other kinds of business; if you sell a car on your own and accept $10,000 cash as a deposit or total payment, you are supposed to file a Form 8300. There is a 15-day deadline to file the 8300 after the deposit takes place.

Currency Transaction Reports
By the Bank Secrecy Act, federal law also requires a Currency Transaction Report for any cash transaction of more than $10,000. The CTR is filed with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, a division of the Treasury Department that freely shares this information with the IRS. The purpose of this law is to track cash being "laundered" through the banking system in order to evade taxation or the investigation of criminal activity. If you "structure" the deposits in amounts smaller than $10,000 to evade reporting, both you and the bank may be subject to criminal charges. The bank is required to notify you of all Form 8300s and CTRs filed on your behalf by January 31 of the following year.

Suspicious Activity Reports
Federal law also requires banks to report any suspicious or unusual activity on the part of depositors, within 30 days of the activity. This can include "structured" deposits made to evade the $10,000-or-above reporting requirements. The bank e-files a Suspicious Activity Report with the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, which also makes it available to the IRS. The report identifies the individuals by name and Social Security number, if available, as well as any law enforcement agency the bank has contacted. The law prohibits the bank from disclosing to the individual involved that an SAR has been filed.

speed at which your car is most fuel efficient.

  • Drive Slower, Maintain 55MPH When Possible.
    Speed Vs. MPGYes, I know we hate this tip, but it’s physics. For most vehicles, 55MPH is the fastest speed that will get us to our destinations quickly without much wind-resistance. For every 10MPH over, wind-resistance increases exponentially, essentially cutting down gas mileage considerably. Edmunds confirms this fact by road testing it, the EPA has been saying for ages, and so have your parents. Tip: Leave earlier, drive slower and don’t sit in the left lane, thanks!

remove your spare tire, lug wrench and jack to save gas, if you have AAA or emergency road assistant service from your insurance.

  • Lighten the Load, Remove Unneeded Cargo.
    You wouldn’t like to run a marathon with a sandbag in your arms, right? Well, you’re car doesn’t like it either. If you have extraneous hardware in your trunk, remove it. For those who subscribe to AAA, consider removing your spare tire, lug wrench and jack. This will lower the weight of your vehicle and can help improve gas mileage. Minivans with removable seats, consider removing your back row of seats if they won’t be occupied.

Well in all fairness Bosch did invent the Oxgen sensor and modern electronic fuel injection. Maybe I should not say invent but made it practical and cost effective. In fact Toyota's first fuel injection systems where liscensed from Bosch.

we can 't even imagine engineering level of mercedes benz. mercedes benz made a car that went 432.7km/h(268 mph) in 1938

Mercedes-Benz W125 Rekordwagen

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The W125 Rekordwagen on display at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in StuttgartGermany.
The Mercedes-Benz W125 Rekordwagen was an experimentalhigh-speed automobile produced in the late 1930s. The streamlined car was derived from the 1937 open-wheel race car Mercedes-Benz W125 Formel-Rennwagen, of which also a streamlined version was raced at the non-championship Avusrennen in Berlin.
The main difference to the Grand Prix race car, which had to adhere to the 750 kg (1,653 lb) limit, was the engine. While the GP car had the 8-cylinder inline M125, which was rather tall, the record car was fitted with a V12 engine that was lower, which reduced drag.
The car is on display in the Mercedes-Benz Museum [1] in Stuttgart.

1938 Mercedes-Benz W125 specifications[edit]

  • Engine: MD 25 DAB/3 60 Degree V12
  • Engine position: Front longitudinal
  • Aspiration: Twin Roots superchargers
  • Valvetrain: DOHC 4 valves per cylinder
  • Displacement: 5,576.75 cc / 340.31 in³ (82.0 x 88.0 mm)
  • Compression: 9.17:1
  • Power: 541 kW (736 PS; 725 hp) @ 5800 rpm
  • Power/displacement 131.97 PS (97.06 kW; 130.16 hp) per litre
  • Power/weight: 621.1 PS (456.8 kW; 612.6 hp) per tonne
  • Transmission: 4-speed manual
  • Engine cooling: Ice supplemented normal coolant as air intakes were kept very small to improve aerodynamic flow over and around the car

The record[edit]

Rudolf Caracciola's record of 432.7 km/h (268 mph) over the flying kilometre on 28 January 1938, remained the fastest ever officially timed speed on a public road until broken on 5 November 2017 by Koenigsegg in an Agera RS driven by Niklas Lilja, achieving 445.6 km/h (276.9 mph) on a closed highway in Nevada. It also was the fastest speed ever recorded in Germany until Rico Anthes bested it with a Top Fuel Dragster on the Hockenheimring drag strip.
This record breaking run was made on the Reichs-Autobahn A5 between Frankfurt and Darmstadt,[2] where onlookers were rattled by the brutal boom of the side spewing exhaust stacks as the silver car hurtled past. By nine that morning, Caracciola and team chief Alfred Neubauer were having a celebration breakfast at the Park Hotel in Frankfurt.
Sadly, popular driver Bernd Rosemeyer was killed later the same day when trying to beat that record for Auto Union. This also put an end to the record attempts of Mercedes, even though Hans Stuck later wanted to beat the overall land speed record with the Porsche-designed Mercedes-Benz T80 which was powered by a 3,000 horsepower (2,200 kW) airplane engine.

Porsche Rekordwagen[edit]

In 1937, Joseph Mickl the chief R&D engineer of Porsche files a patent with a high speed vehicle, which makes use of a whole range of tips and tricks making it most probably the most advanced vehicle of its kind for that time. This patent, is considered as the successor of the w125 Rekordwagen [3].
It is possible to identify many features on this patented design that spun out of the research work of famous researchers of that time such as Ludwig PrandtlWunibald KammTheodore von Kármán etc. The streamlined, low drag body of the vehicle is equipped with an air inlet for the engine which is conveniently located at the maximum static pressure region at the "nose". The body completely engulfs the wheels thus eliminating their additional aerodynamic drag. The vehicle is equipped with 6 wheels (occurring long before the Tyrrell P34 of the late 70s). The main reason for that design choice is the maximization of the contact area with the ground with a simultaneous reduction of the frontal area of the vehicle (i.e. low drag). At the same time the rear wheel axles could remain lower thus reducing the frontal area as well as the center of gravity of the vehicle.
The body of the vehicle is formed like a very basic diffuser thus using the Bernulli principle in order to create downforce and improve stability and traction at high speeds. This, by the way might be one of the very first uses of the Ground Effect, decades before it appeared on the BRM and Chaparral Formula One racers of the 60s.
Another great innovation of that design/patent of Mickl was the integration of an inverted wing which was responsible for the creation of downforce, thus increasing the stability of the vehicle. Most of the people believe that the use of wings to create downforce on vehicles is an idea of the 60s pioneered by Colin Chapman and his Lotus 49 racer. However, the truth is that the German rocket powered rail-racer of the late 20’s Opel-RAK.3 was the earliest example of a vehicle equipped with wings creating downforce. (You can also see Jalopnik’s article “Spoiler Alert: A history of Downforce). This vehicle however did not use inverted wings but rather normal wings that were pitched to negative angle of attack such that they would generate "negative lift".
The racer of Mickl however employs an inverted wing, located directly on top of the rear wheel axles and in the "clean" air inflow stream in order to produce downforce and to translate it directly to tire traction at high speeds. The brilliant ideas of Mickl however do not stop here. The inverted wing is even equipped with a large aileron, such that the driver can adjust the generated downforce in such a way that the vehicle achieves high traction during the acceleration phase and low drag (i.e. low downforce) during the high-speed phase of the race. The final touch of brilliance was given with the implementation of an airbrake option. In this case the aileron of the wing would deflect almost 90° thus hugely increasing drag and acting as a high speed air brake. That action could be manually controlled by the driver via a separate air-brake lever or could be coupled to the wheel brake system of the vehicle.

absurd american reliability reports should consider 'performance for performance' and 'complexity for complexity' like in boxing they consider pound for pound

reliability decrease with more performance because much more damage is done to a car . reliability decrease with more complexity of technologies and engineering because complexity adds more possible errors and more aspect of broken down. it's unfair to compare the reliability of complex performance luxury cars to simple slow ordinary cars.

german reliability is still much much much more superior. toyota, honda and nissan never beaten porsche, benz, bmw, audi before in le mans 24 which is the competition for ultimate reliabilities of each companies and fast performance very complex luxury car benz, bmw, which ranked in 1st and 2nd is still has much less broken down than slow simple ordinary car toyota which ranked in 7th in reliability in the most trustful and the most reliable car reliability source of Der TÜV Report and fastest performance very complex sports car porsche, which is placed in 1st place in reliability is ahead in reliability to slow simple ordinary toyota and lexus, which is placed in 2nd and 3rd, in even biased american JD power reports. american reliable reports are untruthful source because of their unconditional american extreme love for japanese and extreme anti-european tendency in subconscious. americans see european countries being best in many things described with jealousy as pompous and arrogant(american people are really arrogant and pompous as in barbarian manner even though their ugly fashion sense, poor unsophisticated cultures)  (this can be observed in all over the internet, americans often call people from european countries euro trash and in japanese videos, their nothing but only praise of japanese. And watches, cars, piano, CNC machines, speakers of european countries are untouchable high end products and japanese products of those are just cheap low to mid end products, americans unconditionally shit talk high products from european countries and say low end cheap japanese products are the best.) americans also hate european cultures which is the finest cultures by far. they hate classical musics which are the most beautiful music by far and uninterested in european arts which are the best art by far in the world and greek history which is the most important history of all time because middle east copied greek cultures(art, music, architecture, science, medicine) directly and westerners were influenced vehemently by greek cultures.

proof benz is the best reliable car company and toyota is the least reliable car company(engineering for engineering). mercedes benz engine is still much more reliable than lexus which toyota put a little bit more complexity to their engine, even though mercedes engine is very complex and lexus engine is very simple. lexus engine is a little bit more complex than toyota engine.

engine failure rate

1.Mercedes-Benz (failure rate: 1 in 119)
2.Volvo (failure rate: 1 in 111)
3.Jaguar (failure rate: 1 in 103)
4.Lexus (failure rate: 1 in 101))

proof benz is the best reliable car company and toyota is the least reliable car company(complexity for complexity, speed for speed). mercedes benz engine is still much more reliable than lexus which toyota put a little bit more complexity to their engine, even though mercedes engine is very complex and lexus engine is very simple. lexus engine is a little bit more complex than toyota engine. ignorant american people should understand japanese reliability doesn't come from engineering and craftsmanship but from copying simple old german engineering, slow speed and no technology to be broken down. as you can see, if toyota try to put little more complexity, they are much less reliable than benz, even though, benz engine is very complex and lexus engine, even though trying to put a little more complexity from toyota engine, is very simple. engineering and craftsmanship difference between germans and japanese are too much. proper japanese competitor is korean and chinese not germans. okay ignorant delusional american people?!?

engine failure rate by luxury car company(even though mercedes benz engine is very complex and lexus engine is very simple, mercedes-benz engines are still much more reliable than lexus engines)

engine failure rate

1.Mercedes-Benz (failure rate: 1 in 119)
2.Volvo (failure rate: 1 in 111)
3.Jaguar (failure rate: 1 in 103)
4.Lexus (failure rate: 1 in 101)

toyota's unreliability revealed in highest competition. toyota never beaten porsche in le mans 24. japan has the unestablished privilege just for being japanese, because people still unfairly consider toyota unlucky, even though toyota never won in le mans 24 because japanese have c level engineering and craftsmanship level.

Buemi: Toyota’s Le Mans, WEC Defeats ‘Not Bad Luck Any More’

Buemi says Toyota’s lack of WEC titles or Le Mans victory is not just about bad luck…

Luke Smith by Luke Smith December 22, 2017

Sebastien Buemi does not consider Toyota’s failure to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans or either of the FIA World Endurance Championship titles to be down to bad luck alone despite winning five races this season.

Alongside Toyota co-drivers Anthony Davidson and Kazuki Nakajima, Buemi claimed his fifth win from the nine-race WEC season in last month’s Six Hours of Bahrain, marking a new LMP1 record in the series.

Despite the string of victories and arguably having the quicker car for much of the season, Buemi still finished 25 points adrift of the championship-winning Porsche team, with a lack of reliability at Le Mans costing Toyota dearly.

“As we did in the last few years, in general we were managing to have a competitive car, but somehow Le Mans didn’t work out,” Buemi told Sportscar365.

“I don’t consider it bad luck any more. I consider that we are not doing everything as we should be doing.

“We’ve been trying to understand exactly what happened on the cars. Hopefully we’ll finally nail it next year.”

While happy to see the No. 8 Toyota TS050 Hybrid take a fifth win of the year in Bahrain, the result only added to team technical director Pascal Vasselon’s frustration after a third straight season without a title.

“[Winning in Bahrain] was our target, and we achieved it. It makes the whole thing even more frustrating,” Vasselon said.

“Now we can say we’ve dominated six races from nine and in the end we still lost the title, and everything. It was a bit frustrating.

“We had three cars at Le Mans and all three had issues. That was really the frustration. That’s where the nature of the season for us changed.

“We did a lot of mistakes this season. That’s what it is, and why you call it motorsport.”

Nine Wins But No Titles For Buemi

Across his racing duties in both sports cars and Formula E, Buemi enjoyed a remarkable calendar year that saw him win nine of the 19 races he entered – but came away with no championships and no Le Mans win to show for it.

Buemi won four Formula E races through 2017 after winning an additional two in the 2016 races over the winter calendar season, but failed to win a second title after missing the New York double-header due to clashing WEC commitments and managing not to score any points in the Montreal finale.

Added to his five WEC wins, Buemi ended 2017 with a win ratio of 47 percent, with his performances giving him some solace despite the lack of silverware.

“I’m a bit disappointed. At one point I was leading both championships, and then I ended up finishing second in both championships,” he said.

“I’m kind of sad about that situation, because all in all I could have done better, I could have done worse.

“But before starting the season I knew that the problem of the clash could happen and I had to accept it anyway, so I’m not going to blame the loss of the [Formula E] championship on New York.

“But certainly when you don’t race two races and get disqualified twice, and you end up with four times zero points, even if you win lots of races, it’s difficult to compensate.

“I take the positives out of it, and we cannot do anything any more. We can only look forward and try to do better.

“Even though I didn’t win the championship, it’s one of the best seasons I had. I had good seasons the past two or three years, but this has been a good one, yeah.”

if you deposite $10,000 in cash to bank within 1 year, IRS will take your money


What Deposits Are Reported to the IRS?

Your bank business is not always your own business: the IRS might be in on the transaction as well. In an effort to keep tabs on money gained from illegal activities, the agency requires the reporting of certain deposits and, of course, there's a form and procedures for that. Banks aren't the only ones reporting large deposits; the IRS rules apply to any transaction carried out by a business or an individual.


 
Cash and Form 8300
When you deposit $10,000 or more in cash at the bank, the IRS requires the bank to complete a Form 8300. This form is for reporting any transaction or series of related transactions in which the total sum is $10,000 or more; a pair of $5,000 deposits, for example, will also wind up on Form 8300. Related transactions are any transactions (such as deposits) that occur within 24 hours, or are transactions the person or business receiving the money has reason to believe are related.

benz has the least recall rate and toyota and honda have the one of the highest recall rate


I write about how to maximize your automotive investment and more. Opinions expressed by Forbes Contributors are their own.
 194,129 
Safety-related recalls are certainly the red-hot-button issue in the auto business these days, particularly with General Motors facing possible legal problems regarding 1.62 million models from 2005-2007 with faulty ignition switches and Toyota agreeing to a $1.2 billion penalty to settle a criminal probe over claims of unintended acceleration that led to a recall of over 10 million vehicles.
Raging headlines over duplicitous mismanagement at the root of worst-scenario cases like these not withstanding, recalls have become common to the point where most are rendered virtually meaningless to an automaker’s image. How common? According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, last year the auto industry recalled close to a third more vehicles in the U.S. (22 million) than it sold (just over 15 million). Recalls were up by a whopping 25 percent during 2013, which is industry’s highest rate since 2004 when 30.8 million vehicles were involved in such campaigns. Even exotic makes like Lamborghini and Lotus aren't immune to the occasional recall.
Toyota/Lexus/Scion led the pack for the second year in a row with nearly 5.3 million cars and trucks recalled, followed by the Chrysler Group at around 4.7 million and Honda/Acura with nearly 2.8 million models recalled. While these would seem to be staggering numbers, as NHTSA points out they’re not weighed against sales, and as such aren't necessarily a predictor of a given model line’s inherent safety or its long-term reliability.
To that end, the statisticians at the car-search website iSeeCars.com dug deep into both recall histories and sales records from the last three decades to determine which automakers have the best – and worst – track records for recalls relative to their volume. Specifically, they looked at sales records dating back to 1980, and recalls registered since 1985, based on the assumption that most such actions occur after a given model has spent some time out on the road.

While it may come as no shock that luxury-car maker Mercedes-Benz came out atop the list of least-recalled brands, with an average 0.41 units recalled per vehicle sold, General Motors, with nearly 100 million vehicles recalled since 1985, actually placed third-best, with 0.65 cars and trucks recalled per unit sold.
Of the 15 major automakers surveyed, Hyundai Motor Company can lay claim to having the worst ratio, with 1.15 vehicles recalled for every model sold since it introduced the Excel to U.S. buyers in 1986. Other brands found to have recalled more cars than they sold in the U.S. over the last 30 years (needless to say this represents a number of cars for which multiple campaigns were initiated) include Mitsubishi, Volkswagen and Volvo; Chrysler broke even, so to speak, with a one-to-one sales-to-recall ratio. (Scroll down for the full results.)
What can car shoppers headed to dealers’ showrooms in 2014 glean from these findings? Not much, we’re afraid. As is the case with stocks and bonds, past performance is not necessarily an indication of how well or poorly a given model will fare in the future. The Ghost of General Motors Past has certainly come back to haunt the “New GM” in a truly frightening manner, but by all accounts the cars the company builds today are inherently far better than the lackluster models from nearly a decade ago (Chevy Cobalt, Saturn Ion, et, al.) that are at the epicenter of its present predicament.
While a lower recall rate could indeed imply that a given automaker does a better job of manufacturing and/or quality control, it may also come down to which brands are managed better than others. “The recall rate could be an indication of a manufacturer’s risk tolerance or strategy,” explains iSeeCars,com CEO Phong Ly. “Some automakers may issue recalls at a higher frequency because they may be more cautious and proactive.”

Following that line of reasoning, some recalls might even be regarded as positive PR moves if they’re initiated voluntarily and in a timely manner. Among the 15 major automakers surveyed, BMW was found to react to safety related defects the most quickly, with 87 percent of its 232 recall campaigns initiated since 1985 taking place within a model’s first three years. Toyota, hampered by multiple unintended acceleration recalls in 2010 for vehicles that dated back as far as 2004, fared the worst in this regard, with less than 68 percent of its recalls issued within three year’s of sale.
Here’s iSeeCars.com’s full list of least and most recalled car lines since 1985, with the given recall rate being relative to sales registered in the U.S. from 1980 forward:
  1. Mercedes-Benz USA:  2.1 million recalled/5.2 million sold;  0.41 recall rate.
  2. Mazda Motor Corp:  5.2 million recalled/9.4 million sold;  0.55 recall rate.
  3. General Motors:  99.3 million recalled/153.2 million sold;  0.65 recall rate.
  4. Nissan North America:  19.1 million recalled/26.8 million sold;  0.71 recall rate.
  5. Subaru of America:  4.3 million recalled/6.0 million sold;  0.73 recall rate.

  6. Kia Motors:  3.7 million recalled/4.9 million sold;  0.77 recall rate.
  7. Toyota Motor Corp:  38.6 million recalled/48.1 million sold;  0.80 recall rate.
  8. BMW of North America:  5.1 million recalled/5.7 million sold;  0.90 recall rate.
  9. Ford Motor Co:  97.0 million recalled/104.7 million sold;  0.93 recall rate.
  10. American Honda Motor Co:  31.1 million recalled/32.9 million sold;  0.94 recall rate.
  11. Chrysler Group:  63.2 million recalled/63.2 million sold;  1.00 recall rate.
  12. Volvo Cars of North America:  3.3 million recalled/3.1 million sold;  1.05 recall rate.
  13. Volkswagen of America:  10.2 million recalled/9.7 million sold;  1.06 recall rate.
  14. Mitsubishi Motors North America:  5.3 million recalled/4.8 million sold;  1.09 recall rate.
  15. Hyundai Motor Co:  9.9 million recalled/8.7 million sold;  1.15 recall rate.
