Brake-O-Rama shows the world’s best engines are smaller than ever!

Why the world’s best engines are smaller than ever!

Every year for the past 18, the tech gang at Ward’s Automotive compile their list of the ten best engines in the world. This year’s list sports the smallest lineup ever, with the average engine roughly half as big as it was a decade ago. Here’s why the size of your block may not matter anymore.
First, the official list and the vehicles they’re most often found in:
Instead of size, automakers have been pushing toward tinier engines to save fuel, while using tech bits like direct injection, super- & turbocharging and other tricks to keep power steady. Yet there’s only one hybrid on the list — a reflection that many hybrids push for fuel economy at the expense of good driving — and no diesels, a slight the oil-burning community will not appreciate.
Also missing: Any engines from Toyota, Honda or  Mercedes, three companies that have suffered their share of misfortune as of late, some of it self-inflicted. And all the vehicles powered by this list are quite popular. Having a top engine won’t redeem a terrible car — but it’s a requirement for building a great vehicle.

Managing finances is the heart of any business - just ask serial entrepreneur Zalman Silber. From an already successful career as an agent for New York Life, he has parlayed an inspiration, the Skyride, into several more businesses that at first merely replicated his initial success but then explored other fields as his interests diversified - including money management for high-worth individuals (like himself!).

Which is an interesting thing to consider, money management in business terms and in personal terms, where there are differences and where the similarities. And there are also differences and similarities between money management for those with a lot of money and those of more modest means. For someone to advise another on high finance, as Zalman Silber has recently taken to doing in his latest entrepreneurial venture, requires great expertise - we're not talking about common-sensical notions of household budgeting here, but tax shelters, tax write-offs, and other arcane matters on which only a fellow multi-millionaire could properly advise!

American Heritage Holdings, LLC is the businesses Zalman Silber founded in just that regard, and it's currently operating at maximum capacity managing money for a large group of institutional clients as well as with high net-worth individuals. The firm specializes in unique, highly segmented financial instruments, including insurance and reinsurance, along with more traditional interests in acquiring bankrupt companies and turning them around into profit-making businesses. One of the most critical elements of American Heritage Holdings' success is the emphasis on team effort. All decisions, from asset allocation to stock selection, are made by committee to avoid succumbing to the emotional swings of fear and greed that affect the behavior of an individual who makes investment decisions alone.

Instead, a team of individuals implements a proprietary management process. Unlike a "star" manager system, Zalman Silber’s clientele benefits from a time-tested model run by industry insiders and veterans whose goal is to help protect client assets on the downside while achieving better than market returns on the upside. And in addition to managing funds for institutional clients, American Heritage Holdings offers tailored investment management services to private clients a variety of investment options like cash management, total return fixed income asset management, insurance asset management, liability driven investing, and stable value asset management. It's a winning strategy that has produced growth and success ever since the company's founding in 2004!

Driven NewYork

They say if you can make it here you can make it anywhere, and the serial success story that is Zalman Silber proves that old adage many times over, all over the world. is dedicated to learning from those who've made it in this town, and it's a fantastic opportunity to learn from someone who's also helped make this town, too. For visitors associate our city with the Empire State Building, and Zalman Silber has associated himself with the iconic landmark through his inspired Skyride, a virtual helicopter fly-over of New York located on the second floor of the structure.

The list of New York success stories is long and varied. Besides Zalman Silber, there are any number of businessmen who happened to have been in the city when inspiration struck. Maybe it's something in the air. Municipal boosters like to point out that the diversity of people from so many backgrounds can only make for intellectual foment. Historians will point out any number of socio-economic factors, no doubt. But one thing few people realize is the sheer anonymity of the place - terrifying for sheltered souls, pre-requisite for a makeover.

New York embodies America in its scale of vastness. But this is not the vastness of the open plains but a non-physical intellectual space. For in a city of crammed tenements, there is nowhere to retreat but within, into the private life, the life of the mind. And the sheer numbers of humanity that make such retreat necessary also makes it possible, and makes of it a pleasure, for in a town of millions on multiple millions no one cares who are you or what you believe. And so you can start over and proclaim anything.

And so it is that the anonymity which frightens tourists is welcomed by our citizens like fire to a chef. The tragedy of the commons? Yes, it's a rough-and-tumble kind of place where anonymity is a close cousin of apathy and even recklessness. But such otherwise unfortunate conditions also afford movers and shakers the freedom they need to create and succeed. And so they make this town even as they make it here. These princes of the city often know well its hard-scrabble streets and by virtue of their familiarity often see no need for improvement: If they can do it, why not everyone else?

Such is the heartless abandon of many a self-made tycoon. But this toughest of towns is also brimming with philanthropic largesse - the truest measure of success of all: Not he who has much, but he who gives much is rich.

Dehydrated dog food, why your dog needs this healthy dog food?

Dehydrated dog food, why your dog needs this healthy dog food?

What is Dehydrated dog food?
Dehydrated dog food is in its simplest form is referred to as dry dog food, but only until warm water is added to the dehydrated dog food mix and then the resulting dog food mix becomes a biologically appropriate dog food with the exact amount of water content recommended by the dog food nutritional experts, the added advantage on this dehydrated dog food is that the amount of water contained in the biologically appropriate dog food is in the exact amount of 70%, and this water content is the perfect for the individual dog’s metabolism as any less or more water content can be a cause for nutritional problems in the future – possibly liver and / or kidney problems, all dog food mixes must be represented of the dog’s natural dietary requirements which should as close as possible to the meat-eating diet of its carnivores descendants and this hydrated dog food – dehydrated dog food when mixed with the exact amount of water decidedly is replicated by as perfect a diet only as an alternative to eating a biologically appropriate raw diet – which in its self very difficult to assess exact proportions to suit the dogs dietary needs, so the first choice the dog nutritional experts would recommend is the biologically appropriate raw diet, which is at best very difficult to replicate, the perfect alternative for the dogs dietary needs would be the correctly hydrated dehydrated dog food.

What is Good About Dehydrated Dog Food?
The main advantage of feeding your family dog Dehydrated Dog Food is that the manufacturing process is consistent and specific, and the advantage lies in the fact that the dehydrated dog food has not been processed at high temperatures which has protected the essential nutrient, essential mineral and other essential vitamins content of the Hydrated dog food mix, so the essential ingredients that is so essential for the long term nutritional needs for your family dog is importantly safeguarded.

Dehydrated dog food remains the closest to the essential ingredients of any manufactures dog food, because the essential ingredients of the dehydrated raw dog food remains in perfect condition so that the family dog benefit from the essential trace elements which is not destroyed in the manufacturing heating process and this range of dehydrated raw dog food is the best choice of dog food that a caring dog lover can give to their family dog, it is recommended that all family dogs should be fed the best and highest quality of dog food that perfectly replicates the natural food of the meat-eating carnivore and gives the family dog the essential minerals, essential vitamins and the essential trace elements, and avoid all other processed dog foods and the reasons are explained for you in the paragraph below.

Processed dog food in comparison to dehydrated dog food – in its raw state, is actually forced to be heat processed because of the un-nutritious and potential harmful bacteria which is very likely mixed in with processed dog food – the un-sterilized waste animal innards, the crushed waste bones with added un-natural ingredients so as to bind all of the mixed processed dog food together – in essence with all of the un-savoury ingredients contained within the processed dog food, then the extreme heating process used throughout the manufacturing process is entirely necessary to ensure the destruction of the possibly harmful bacteria, and it is for this reason alone that the processed dog food must be subject to very high temperatures so as to ensure that the potential harmful bacteria is destroying these essential trace elements even though the manufacturing process involves the destruction of essential ingredients the inferior processed dog food is still available and is being sold in the vast majority of the processed dog food departments of the Pet Supplies Stores.

What is the Advantages of Feeding Your Dog Dehydrated Dog Food?
As the first choice of dehydrated dog food from the dog nutritional experts are also based on the very important advantage of this type of food being very easily digestible and for the essential proteins which are readily available to the dog for example turkey, beef, chicken and fish in their own right are a luxury diet of the meat-eating carnivorous wild dogs, and with the added benefit from the naturally included essential minerals and the essential vitamins available to the dog in its natural state, then Dehydrated Dog Food is definitely the best choice and only second to the biologically appropriate raw dog food and this type of raw dog food is a difficult to formulate to the exact proportions of the various components relating to the various elements so the dog fed on the biologically appropriate dog food needs to replicate the exact combination of the daily essential nutrients, essential minerals, essential vitamins and exact proportions for bulk and reduction in the carbohydrate content – unless the dog is a working dog then the combinations need to be re-evaluated to suit. Dehydrated Dog Food is highly recommended for dog owners who received specific orders not to feed their dogs’ dog food with grain, and this is usually as a result of a transitional dog food after coming off a bland diet as a result of a Gastric Intestinal problem or even Pancreatitis and using Dehydrated Dog Food until capable of resuming their biologically appropriate raw dog food.

Is there a Set of Ingredients Contained in Dehydrated Raw Dog Food?
Yes, and to ensure you feed your dog the highest consistency of Dehydrated Raw Dog Food, then you need to ensure that the quality is consistent and the only sure way of ensuring the consistency of the dog food, check these ingredients is printed on the Hydrated Raw Dog Food Box – if shopping online for your hydrated raw dog food, then only shop at an online pet supplies store which offer an in-depth informational description of each pet supplies product – check out the DogSiteWorld Store and you will see that they offer an in-depth pet products description, with the honest reviews from previous buyers and their reviews are from pet lovers just like us, unfortunately there are many online dog supplies store who will offer very little product descriptions, so check the description before any online purchases, the List of ingredients is as follows:
• Dehydrated Turkey
• Organic Flaxseed
• Potatoes
• Carrots
• Celery
• Spinach
• Organic Coconut
• Apples
• Organic Kelp
• Eggs
• Bananas

The above ingredients are an excellent combination of raw foods in the natural form of dehydrated raw dog food – raw dog food which having been dried in its natural state with nothing added or nothing taken out by any processing method – un processed dog food; you will not get any better quality ingredients when the combination is in any type of prepared dog food especially when included within the recipe of Dehydrated Raw Dog Food, remember this type of dog food available at online pet stores will usually include a more extended range and there should be expected to have a wide selection and usually the descriptions will be more exact certainly when shopping at a leading online pet supplies store.

What do I Need to Know when Feeding my Dog Dehydrated Dog Food?
Feeding your dog a mixed diet of Dehydrated Dog Food is like any other mixture of dog food and essential and specific to all dry dog food mixes, and that is to ensure that by feeding your dog any dry dog mix you must ensure that the dog food mixture must be adequately softened by adding at least 70% water to the mix and ensure that all the dry ingredients are moistened and of a paste consistency and this fine mix will be perfect for the dog – the dog nutritional experts suggest to avoid a dog having unlimited access to dry dog food in its un-moistened state, and only feeding the correct amount on a daily basis.

Will You Separate Myth From Fact and Evidence with Dehydrated Dog Food 1?
There is one misconception that a dog who eats dry dehydrated dog food that their teeth will remain in perfect condition, unfortunately this is far from the truth, as the experts will argue that the only way for a dog to maintain an healthy set of teeth is that the dog will regularly participate in the shearing action from chewing on and biting bone-dense food, and it’s this consistent biting on dense bone type dog food that helps to maintain the cleaning action of the dog’s teeth.

Will You Separate Misconception From Fact and Evidence with Dehydrated Dog Food 2?
Another misconception is related to buying dog food which contains Grains, well Grains in dog food is only used to bulk up the dog food consistency with a cheap and plentiful ingredient, there is no evidence that dog food with grain is healthy, in fact many dog nutritional experts will warn against feeding your dog with dog food containing grain, as they recommend that all dog food given to your dog need to be grain-free and the ultimate dog food mix essential for your dogs’ health and well-being and the evidence suggests dehydrated raw dog food is the dog food mix which replicated the most natural dog food diet for your meat-eating carnivore.
