Are These Onyx Electric Mopeds the Perfect Urban Commuter Bikes?

Pedals and Electric Power Mopeds were popular machines in the 1970s and 80s, but over time the bicycle/motorcycle bike fell out of style. Now, they’re quite uncommon. You see either scooters or motorcycles, but the pedal moped is a rarity on the road. That may change in the future thanks to ONYX Motorbikes. ONYX Motorbikes got its start where many good ideas go, Indigogo. After raising about $1 million, Tim Seward, the founder of the company, and his team have delivered on some truly attractive...

Evolution of the Race Engine

We’re still racing the same V-8s (except the Compact and Mod4 classes) topped with carburetors that have been around for decades. Of course, that doesn’t mean our engines are the same. Stock-car racing hasn’t seen very many revolutionary changes in engine technology since Richard Petty was winning championships in NASCAR’s top series. Really, the only thing we can think of regarding big leaps in technology is NASCAR’s adoption of computer-controlled fuel injection during the Cup series back in 2...

Remembering the Good Old Days of Racing

We talked to several longtime racers and car builders to see how racing has changed over the years. Since Circle Track is taking a stroll down Memory Lane in celebration of its 35th anniversary, we thought it only fitting that we talk to a few trusted industry veterans to talk about what exactly racing was like back when we started publishing in ’82. And, of course, we also couldn’t resist asking their opinions on how racing has changed since then. Billy Hess racing his Pontiac Grand Am at ...

Relative Citation Ratio: Scientists publish new metric to measure the influence of scientific research

A group from the National Institute of Health's Office of Portfolio Analysis has developed a new metric, known as the Relative Citation Ratio (RCR), which will allow researchers and funders to quantify and compare the influence of a scientific article. While the RCR cannot replace expert review, it does overcome many of the issues plaguing previous metrics.

The TMI Pastor. Don’t be that guy.

TMI = Too much information. I think it should be a real medical diagnosis for some pastors I’ve met over the years.  Here’s how to tell if you’re a TMI pastor: 1.  Do you chuck so much content into a sermon that it really should be three sermons?  People will only remember so much. I like how Rick Warren says he wrote the Purpose Driven Life.  He tried to use as few words as possible.  He took paragraphs and made them sentences.  He took 10 words and made them into five.  Wordsmith your sermons....
