Das intensive Leben

Eine moderne Obsession

Im 18. Jahrhundert fasziniert ein neues Fluidum die Welt: die Elektrizität. Mit ihr wird die Intensität zu einem Ideal für den Menschen und zu einem Begriff der Philosophie. Von der Macht Nietzsches bis zum Vitalismus Deleuze', von der nervösen Erregung der Libertins bis zum Adrenalinkick der Begierde, der Leistung und der Extremsportarten: die Intensität organisiert seither unsere Welt. Sie ist der höchste Wert des modernen Lebens, wie der junge französische Philosoph Tristan Garcia in seinem mitreißenden Essay zeigt. Die ständige Suche nach Intensität ist allerdings auch anstrengend: süchtig jagen wir neuen Höhepunkten und Extremen nach, immer unter Strom. Kein Wunder also, dass in unseren »Hochspannungsgesellschaften« das Unbehagen wächst. Die intensive Landwirtschaft zerstört die Natur, das Selbst ist erschöpft, Apathie, Mittelmäßigkeit und Depression signalisieren das Ende des großen Wachstums- und Intensitätsrauschs. Wie können wir dennoch das Gefühl bewahren, am Leben zu sein? Jenseits von Lebenshilfe und Glücksratgebern, die Weisheit und Seelenheil in einer Rückkehr zu Buddhismus oder Religion versprechen, und mit der E-Gitarre im Gepäck ruft Garcia zum Widerstand auf. Seine Forderung: Wir brauchen eine Ethik der Intensität.

The World Beyond the Windshield

Roads and Landscapes in the United States and Europe

For better or worse, the view through a car's windshield has redefined how we see the world around us. In some cases, such as the American parkway, the view from the road was the be-all and end-all of the highway; in others, such as the Italian autostrada, the view of a fast, efficient transportation machine celebrating either Fascism or its absence was the goal. These varied environments are neither necessary nor accidental but the outcomes of historical negotiations, and whether we abhor them or take delight in them, they have become part of the fabric of human existence. The World beyond the Windshield: Roads and Landscapes in the United States and Europe is the first systematic, comparative look at these landscapes. By looking at examples from the United States and Europe, the chapters in this volume explore the relationship between the road and the landscape that it traverses, cuts through, defines, despoils, and enhances. The authors analyze the Washington Beltway and the Blue Ridge Parkway, as well as iconic roads in Italy, Nazi Germany, East Germany, and Great Britain. This is a story of the transatlantic exchange of ideas about environment and technology and of the national and nationalistic appropriations of such landscaping.

As today's cars continue to become more complicated and complex, the cost to repair them has continued to climb. However, with some basic knowledge and a little know-how, many of the most expensive repairs can be avoided by simple, regular maintenance, or relatively inexpensive repairs that can be done with a few tools and step-by-step instructions. Car expert, Dave Stribling, has seen every repair in the book, and in Idiot's Guides: Auto Repair and Maintenance, he arms readers with the knowledge they'll need to troubleshoot and diagnose common problems and make simple repairs that are universal to most makes and models. Dozens of step-by-step, full-color photos and illustrations make DIY car repairs and maintenance so much easier. When the repair calls for an expert the time comes to take the car to the shop, Dave arms readers with the knowledge they'll need to make the right choices, to avoid unnecessary repairs, and to minimize the possibility of getting ripped off.

Automotive Scan Tool PID Diagnostics (Diagnostics Strategies of Modern Automotive Systems ) By Mandy Concepcion In this section, the different techniques of scan tool parameter (PID) analysis will be exposed. Techniques involving PID analysis are quickly catching on, due to their speed and accuracy. By properly analyzing the different scanner PIDs, the technician can arrive at the source of the problem much faster and accurately. These procedures give rise to the new term “driver seat diagnostics”, since most of the preliminary diagnostic work is done through the scanner. However, these techniques will in no way replace the final manual tests that are a part of every diagnostic path. They are simply geared to point the technician in the right direction. Table of Contents INTRODUCTION (Introduction to scan tool diagnostics and the relevance of using PIDs or scanner parameter to perform the first leg of all diagnostics.) - Theory of Operation Behind the Different PIDs (Describes CARB, the difference between generic and enhanced PIDs, the FTP) - OBD II Generic PIDs (PID calculated and actual values, calculated data relationships, base injection timing, ECM value substitution) - OBD I & II General PID analysis (erasing code-or not, recording, analyzing and pinpoint tests, separating PIDs into groups) - Fuel Delivery Fault Detection (fuel delivery issues, intake air temp. sensor, BARO sensor, Engine LOAD, RPM PID, Short-Term Fuel Trims, Long-Term Fuel Trims, 60% of check engine light issues, block learn/integrators, Example 1: injector fault, Example 2: intake gasket issues, fuel status, ignition timing, MAP/MAF, TPS, O2 sensor, IAC, Closed Throttle, injector pulse width, voltage power, injector dutycycle, fuel trim cell) - Test #1 (Determining an engine’s fuel Consumption (rich-lean operation, duty-cycle to fuel trim relationship, O2 sensor to fuel trim relation, FT and vacuum leaks, ignition timing and idle control, test conclusion) - Test # 2 (Misfire Detection Strategy, EGR, Ignition and Mechanical misfires) (misfires and OBD2, scanner misfire detection – a time saver, OBD2 40 and 80 cycle misfire, ignition, injector and EGR density misfire, coil-on-plug, misfires and O2 sensor, lean O2 & Secondary misfire, O2 sensor & injector misfires, leaky injector, EGR and the MAP, Type A, B, C misfires, test conclusion) - Test # 3 (Air/Fuel Ratio Faults) (air-fuel imbalance, MAF and post O2 sensors, open-closed-loop, fuel enable, HC & CO relation to AF issues, test conclusion) - Test # 4 (BARO, MAP & MAF PID analysis) (MAP & valve timing faults, ECM behavior, fuel delivery or duty cycle test, volumetric efficiency, , test conclusion) - Test # 5 (Clogged exhaust) (clogged catalytic converter detection, TPS, MAF and converters, idle and WOT or wide open throttle values, vacuum readings, MAP to WOT chats analysis, engine and MAP vacuum, test conclusion) - Test # 6 (EGR Fault Detection) (EGR and MAP values, ECM reaction to EGR issues, EGR temp sensor, DPFE sensor, EGR and O2-MAP and lift position sensor, EGR and engine pre-loading, EGR and the ECM erroneous high LOAD issues, test conclusion) - Test # 7 (O2 Sensor Heater) (O2 heaters and why?, tough to check O2 heater issues, O2 heater effect on signal output, O2 heater bias voltage, engine off and O2 changing value, test conclusion) - Test # 8 (Resetting Fuel Trims) (resetting injection pulse corrections, long-term and short-term fuel trims, learn condition, Lambda, case study on fuel trims, FT resetting according to manufacturer, test conclusion) - Test # 9 (Engine Cranking Vacuum Test) (MAP/MAF cranking vacuum, vacuum to PID analysis, vacuum leaks, gauge-PID test, sources of leaks, cranking values, test conclusion)
