Fujian Taizuquan [太祖拳]

This guys is pretty good and I like this style. Although I have seen it done much softer (trad) but non the less a good demo and a fine representation. The more I watch it has allot of flavor of my Lu Long Hsing Pai style outside of the jumps and dislocating his shoulder with his over exaggerated punches - lol

Good to be Home


I had a hell of a time with the family up north. It has been four years since I have seen most of my family and many the first time they got to meet my son - good stuff - but it does remind me to be thankful for those that protect our borders and way of life. For those soldiers that give up their freedoms for mine I wish you the most Merry Xmas of all.

Peace

Glass Boots


Sixteenth-century German fraternities would settle their differences via sword-fight duels. Following the duels, the students would stitch their wounds up with horse hairs and reconcile the differences while drinking beer. As the tradition went, a fraternity brother's own boot would be filled with beer and drunk while the members would cheere him on. "Gordon Biersch"

HISTORY OF INDIAN PALE ALE (IPA)

PA descends from the earliest pale ales of the 17th century. The term "pale ale" originally denoted an ale which had been brewed from pale malt. The pale ales of the early 18th century were lightly hopped and quite different from later pale ales. By the mid-18th century, pale ale was mostly manufactured with coke-fired malt, which produced less smoking and roasting of barley in the malting process, and hence produced a paler beer. One such variety of beer was October beer, a pale well-hopped brew popular among the landed classes, who brewed it domestically; once brewed it was intended to cellar two years.

Among the earliest known named brewers whose beers were exported to India was George Hodgson of the Bow Brewery, on the Middlesex-Essex border. Bow Brewery beers became popular among East India Company traders in the late 18th century because of the brewery's location and Hodgson's liberal credit line of 18 months. East Indiamen transported a number of Hodgson's beers to India, among them his October beer, which benefited exceptionally from conditions of the voyage and was apparently highly regarded among consumers in India. Bow Brewery came into control of Hodgson's sons in the early 19th century, but their business practices alienated their customers. During the same period, several Burton breweries lost their European export market in Russia because of new tariffs on beer, and were seeking a new export market for their beer. At the behest of the East India Company, Allsop brewery developed a strongly hopped pale ale in the style of Hodgson's for export to India. Other Burton brewers, including Bass and Salt, were anxious to replace their lost Russian export market and quickly followed Allsop's lead. Likely as a result of the advantages of Burton water in brewing, Burton India Pale Ale was preferred by merchants and their customers in India.

Demand for the export style of pale ale, which had become known as "India Pale Ale," developed in England around 1840 and India Pale Ale became a popular product in England.Some brewers dropped the term "India" in the late 19th century, but records indicated that these "pale ales" retained the features of earlier IPA. American, Australian and Canadian brewers manufactured beer with the label IPA before 1900, and records suggest that these beers were similar to English IPA of the era.

Hodgson's October beer style clearly influenced the Burton Brewers's India Pale Ale. His beer was only slightly higher in alcohol than most beer brewed in his day and would not have been considered a strong ale; however, a greater proportion of the wort was well-fermented, leaving behind few residual sugars, and the beer was strongly hopped. The common story that early IPAs were much stronger than other beers of the time, however, is a myth. Moreover, porter shipped to India at the same time survived the voyage, and common claims that Hodgson formulated his beer to survive the trip and that other beers would not survive the trip are probably false. It is clear that by the 1860s, India Pale Ales were widely brewed in England and that they were much more attenuated and highly hopped than porters and many other ales.

British Opposed Four Motorcycles







Not only did the Americans copy ol' Fritz and his BMW's making the XA750 the English did as well. One of the most remarkable of those was the Brough Superior Dream...

Brough Superior Dream Engine. Four cylinders: Bore 71mm., Stroke 63mm. -996 c.c. - compression ratio 6.5 to 1. The cylinders are arranged doubly opposed transversely in the frame (one cylinder above the other on each side.) With this arrangement all the cylinders are equally cooled, and the Exhausts, which face forward, give an uninterrupted stream of air cooling them in a manner impossible to achieve with any other arrangement. The cylinders and heads are not shielded from the air by the front mudguard as with other machines. The cylinder block is aluminium carrying liners of special wear-resisting material, and each pair of cylinders (upper and lower) has its own crankshaft. They are coupled together with wide-faced gears, the teeth of which are ground. The crankshafts are each in two parts, the driving side member having the crankpin and driving side journal integral. The main bearings are bronze, and capable of great endurance. The crankshaft arrangement permits the use of bearings of generous proportions, and the connecting rods are of light alloy, operating direct upon the crankpin in accordance with the latest racing practice. There are two camshafts chain-driven to give silent operation, and the cams operate mushroom tappets and have a gradual take-up of tappet clearance to give quiet running. The whole of the valve gear is totally enclosed.

Frame. This is specially designed to accommodate this type of engine, being welded together instead of the usual practice of brazing lugs. This frame also has a fully sprung (plunger) rear wheel which is fitted as standard on other Brough Superior models.

Forks. The Brough Superior—formerly known as the Castle—type of fork is fitted as standard on this machine.

General. The remaining specification, such as bulbous-nosed tank and its capacity, saddle height, ground clearance and wheel base, etc., is practically identical to that of standard machines. The Dream could be supplied with 3- or 4-speed transmission, and the final drive is by silent, underslung worm. The rear wheel and all driving mechanism could be detached from the machine in two minutes.
