Facts About Mercedes Benz Cars


 Mercedes-Benz employs one inspector for every 11 workers, and pays them to criticize their heads off. By the time a Mercedes-Benz gets the final stamp of approval, it has undergone thousands of separate inspections.


 Every Mercedes-Benz body is welded in 10,000 places. No bolts to work loose as the miles add up; this is one car that wont age to the sad tune of rattles, squeaks and groans.


 Every Mercedes-Benz sits on a fully independent swing axle suspension system, first used on the company's racing machines. This suspension allows firm and stable roadholding regardless of speed and dips without jarring or pitching. No 'Sea-sick' feeling.


 All Mercedes-Benz engines use overhead camshafts in place of ordinary valve actuation. This allows extremely high engine speeds in total smoothness, and safety, and quiet. And it permits these engines, only half the size of most V8's, to cruise at over 90 mph all day if required.


 Million-dollar machines electronically balance every Mercedes-Benz crankshaft, adding to the vibration-free high-speed cruising comfort for which these cars are famed. Engine tolerances are measured in 10,000ths of an inch.


 Every engine is test-run before being mounted in the car. Many are run for over an hour on special test rigs, and checked with a battery of gauges for any sign of undue noise or friction. Engine oil during this test is replenished more than 60 times - flushing away every speck of dirt and debris.


 Every Mercedes-Benz model carries disc brakes at all four wheels as standard equipment. Front and rear brake systems on all cars are separately activated; if one system somehow failed, the second would take over to stop you.


 Vital suspension steering and brake parts are tightened during assembly by hand with a unique torque wrench-designed forthe job by Mercedes-Benz engineers. When the exact pre-determined pressure is reached, this ingenius device squirts a blot of yellow paint on to the part. A follow-up inspector then simply counts the blots to check that the job has been perfectly done.


 Each of the four coil springs used in a Mercedes-Benz suspension is selected to form a matched set, by way of four special tests. This ensures a balanced ride, down to the finest degree.


 The steering system of your Mercedes-Benz carries its own- tiny built-in shock absorber, to cushion road shocks and damp them out before they can affect your hands on the steering wheel.


 they are sealed, many hollow or hidden parts of a Mercedes-Benz body-such as the insides of the rocker panels are brushed with a zinc dust compound to foil the inroads of condensation and eventual rust.


 After welding, many vital seams in the body of every Mercedes-Benz are ground down by hand, then packed with pewter, then ground down again and polished to invisibility. No jagged, shabby, depressing signs of hasty workmanship.


 Prior to painting, every Mercedes­Benz body is drowned in a 52-ton primer bath. This rich anti-corrosion coating seeps into every nook and cranny.


 When the primer has been baked on, 25 pounds of permanent plasticized undercoating are sprayed on to the underside and wheel wells of every Mercedes-Benz. Another safeguard against rust.


 The body is given four coats of paint-hand polished between coats, the final paint coat applied by hand -for a smooth 'lustrous finish which is especially salt-resistant.


 Tyres on all Mercedes-Benz cars are super premium grade and far exceed the minimum requirements set by new U.S. safety laws. They are proved capable of carrying a full passenger and luggage load, at normal specified air pressures, in continuous high-speed cruising. Note too that all Mercedes-Benz wheels are statically and dynamically balanced at the factory - even the spare.


 A four speed, fUlly-synchronized manual or automatic transmission comes as standard equipment on all Mercedes-Benz models, except 300 and 600 series which are equipped with automatic transmission only.


 All chromium trim on Mercedes­Benz cars is given two coats of copper and another of nickel before plating.


 The interior of even the smallest Mercedes-Benz offers, in many respects, more passenger space than the largest sedans.


 A unique ventilation system draws in clean air via a scoop on the hood, and exhausts stale air through ducts at the rear of the cabin. You enjoy constant fresh air, even with all windows shut, in all sedans.


 The seats in the Mercedes-Benz cars were designed and shaped in consultation .with leading orthopedic physicians. These contoured, firmly upholstered seats envelop you-supporting vital kidney, back and knee-joint areas.


 Seat springs are actually tuned to the car's suspension motions, erasing millions of tiny jiggling movements that can add up over long trips to muscle fatigue.


 The optional Daimler-Benz .automatic transmission has four forward speeds. You can operate it like a manual shift, or as an automatic. Using the hydraulic coupling principle instead of common torque converters, this transmission cuts slippage to almost nil. Fuel economy is virtually equal to manual gearboxes.


 The Mercedes-Benz power steering uses a servo-booster that adds steering assistance progressively, as more and more effort is needed. You never lose touch with the front wheels. There is none of the freakish lightness and loss' of road 'feel' for which power-assisted steering is often derided.


 The timeless body styling of all Mercedes-Benz models requires no annual changes. To Mercedes-Benz owners this means no unpleasant surprise every year at 'new car time'.

The history of Mercedes-Benz engineering development proves a constant link with safety in motoring.

There is not one safety feature vaunted by other automobile manufacturers that Mercedes-Benz have not had for some years. Most of these are patented by the Daimler-Benz company which permits other car makers to use some of them.

None but Mercedes-Benz has them all. The 'safety zone' is one such idea. (Patentschrift 30/10/52 No. 854157). Unlike conventional automobile construction, the exclusive Mercedes­Benz body and frame design actually features a body within a body.

Body construction at the front and the rear of the car, however, is resilient to severe impact. This simply means that in the event of collision, either at the front or the rear of the car, these sections yield to the impact and provide cushioning protection. Surely the patented Mercedes-Benz 'Safety Zone' is the safest car interior human ingenuity has yet devised.

Fashionable styling will always attract some prospective buyers. But Mercedes-Benz only change designs when the new model represents a significant step forward in technical achievement.

There is always quite a time lapse between the introduction of one new series of models and the next. Forward­looking designs, high quality materials, thorough production methods, careful checks, repeated tests, well-planned service: all these things help to retain the value of Mercedes-Benz cars.

15% of all Mercedes-Benz staff engaged in car production are inspectors. But they are not alone. Each of the components has to pass through innumerable automatic control points before assembly. There are 3,700 Mercedes-Benz service stations in 156 countries throughout the world, staffed by experienced technicians, many of whom have been to the works in Germany for training.

They give individual attention to your Mercedes-Benz car. Service facilities for Mercedes-Benz cars in Australia are excellent. Lane's Motors, the Victorian distributor for Mercedes­Benz, have recently installed a dynamometer and engine performance analyser which are now in constant service in the tuning department.

Engine and transmission components can be put through their paces under actual road conditions. Cars can be kept in perfect tune for maximum performance and economy, without the need for road testing. This in-depth service is now a matter of routine in the. regular 12,000 mile check carried out on all Mercedes­Benz vehicles.

Janlokpal Bill

The Jan Lokpal Bill (Citizen's ombudsman Bill) is a draft anti-corruption bill drawn up by prominent civil society activists seeking the appointment of a Jan Lokpal, an independent body that would investigate corruption cases, complete the investigation within a year and envisages trial in the case getting over in the next one year. 

Drafted by Justice Santosh Hegde (former Supreme Court Judge and former Lokayukta of Karnataka), Prashant Bhushan (Supreme Court Lawyer) and Arvind Kejriwal (RTI activist), the draft Bill envisages a system where a corrupt person found guilty would go to jail within two years of the complaint being made and his ill-gotten wealth being confiscated. It also seeks power to the Jan Lokpal to prosecute politicians and bureaucrats without government permission. 

Retired IPS officer Kiran Bedi and other known people like Swami Agnivesh, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Anna Hazare and Mallika Sarabhai are also part of the movement, called India Against Corruption. Its website describes the movement as "an expression of collective anger of people of India against corruption. We have all come together to force/request/persuade/pressurize the Government to enact the Jan Lokpal Bill. We feel that if this Bill were enacted it would create an effective deterrence against corruption."

Anna Hazare, anti-corruption crusader, went on a fast-unto-death in April, demanding that this Bill, drafted by the civil society, be adopted. Four days into his fast, the government agreed to set up a joint committee with an equal number of members from the government and civil society side to draft the Lokpal Bill together. The two sides met several times but could not agree on fundamental elements like including the PM under the purview of the Lokpal. Eventually, both sides drafted their own version of the Bill.

The government has introduced its version in Parliament in this session. Team Anna is up in arms and calls the government version the "Joke Pal Bill." Anna Hazare declared that he would begin another fast in Delhi on August 16. Hours before he was to begin his hunger strike, the Delhi Police detained and later arrested him. There are widespread protests all over the country against his arrest.         

The website of the India Against Corruption movement calls the Lokpal Bill of the government an "eyewash" and has on it a critique of that government Bill. 

A look at the salient features of Jan Lokpal Bill:

1. An institution called LOKPAL at the centre and LOKAYUKTA in each state will be set up 

2. Like Supreme Court and Election Commission, they will be completely independent of the governments. No minister or bureaucrat will be able to influence their investigations.

3. Cases against corrupt people will not linger on for years anymore: Investigations in any case will have to be completed in one year. Trial should be completed in next one year so that the corrupt politician, officer or judge is sent to jail within two years.

4. The loss that a corrupt person caused to the government will be recovered at the time of conviction. 

5. How will it help a common citizen: If any work of any citizen is not done in prescribed time in any government office, Lokpal will impose financial penalty on guilty officers, which will be given as compensation to the complainant.

6. So, you could approach Lokpal if your ration card or passport or voter card is not being made or if police is not registering your case or any other work is not being done in prescribed time. Lokpal will have to get it done in a month's time. You could also report any case of corruption to Lokpal like ration being siphoned off, poor quality roads been constructed or panchayat funds being siphoned off. Lokpal will have to complete its investigations in a year, trial will be over in next one year and the guilty will go to jail within two years.

7. But won't the government appoint corrupt and weak people as Lokpal members? That won't be possible because its members will be selected by judges, citizens and constitutional authorities and not by politicians, through a completely transparent and participatory process. 

8. What if some officer in Lokpal becomes corrupt? The entire functioning of Lokpal/ Lokayukta will be completely transparent. Any complaint against any officer of Lokpal shall be investigated and the officer dismissed within two months.

9. What will happen to existing anti-corruption agencies? CVC, departmental vigilance and anti-corruption branch of CBI will be merged into Lokpal. Lokpal will have complete powers and machinery to independently investigate and prosecute any officer, judge or politician. 

10. It will be the duty of the Lokpal to provide protection to those who are being victimized for raising their voice against corruption.

IMAX Corp to open 5 new theatres in India

236931_Save Up to 90%OFF for Back to School Category

IMAX Corporation today announced that it would be opening five new IMAX theatres in India by 2008. Delhi, Kolkata and Jaipur are the cities that have been shortlisted for three of the five projects.
“Delhi-based Aeren’s group will be the developers that we will be working with at Delhi and Kolkata. We plan to open the IMAX at Delhi by the end of 2005 and that will be followed by the one at Kolkata. The IMAX at Jaipur is most likely to be opened by the end of 2006,” Don Savant, vice-president and general manager, Asia Pacific, IMAX Corporation said.
The corporation, till date, has set up 235 IMAX theatres in 35 countries with three being in India.
Aeren's is a 30-year-old group of builders and developers in Delhi that has a client list that includes Pepsi, McDonalds, LML, MTNL, Sansui, UTI Bank and the JK GROUP. It has to its credit several farmhouses, colonies, residential and commercial buildings.
“We plan to introduce the new MPX technology in India, which will reduce costs for the multiplex operators. We see India as a significant growth area,” Richard Gelfond, co-chairman and co-chief operating officer, IMAX Corporation said at a press conference.
The MPX technology enables the multiplex operators to enter the IMAX business on a more cost-effective basis, as the projection and sound systems fit into a traditional 35 mm setting itself.
“Within the next 18 months we plan to introduce this technology in cities like Chennai, Bangalore and Pune in India,” Savant said. This means at least a 20 per cent reduction in operating costs and at the same time benefit from the IMAX experience.
IMAX Corporation has ventured into film production with Magnificent Desolation that stars Tom Hanks in the lead. It plans to produce at least one film a year. Later it also plans to capture live action in 3D technology.
It also plans to enter newer countries and has recently signed an agreement with the government of Punjab province in Pakistan, to install the first IMAX theatre in the country. The theatre is most likely to open in September 2005.
Gelfond also said that The Polar Express, the first full-length Hollywood feature film ever converted into IMAX 3D will open in IMAX theatres and conventional theatres simultaneously in India on December 24, 2004.
Prasads’ Vizag multiplex plan
The Prasads group, which operates the IMAX theatre in Hyderabad, plans to set up a multiplex in Vizag.
"The government has earmarked land for the multiplex but we cannot give any time frame for its set-up,” Ramesh Prasad, director, Prasad Media Corporation Limited said.
“The Prasad’s group is among the most successful of our operators in India, despite low ticket charges,” Richard Gelfond, co-chairman and co-chief operating officer, IMAX Corporation said.
“While the tickets cost about Rs 180 in India that is around $4, it is $18 in Japan and $11 in the US,” he added.

Anna Hazare Short Life Biography

Short Biography of Anna Hazare – Story of Army Driver becoming
the Father of Nation Bigger than Bharat Ratna

Name - Kisan Bapat Baburao Hazare known as Anna Hazare

Birth date - 15 January 1940

Anna Hazare was born in Bhingar village in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra state in western India to Baburao Hazare and Laxmi Bai, an unskilled labourer family
He was raised by his childless aunt in Mumbai but could not continue beyond VII standard and had to quit midway due to problems.
He has two sisters.

He is unmarried.

Anna Hazare started his career as a driver in the Indian Army.
During his 15-year tenure as a soldier, he was posted to several states like Sikkim, Bhutan, Jammu-Kashmir, Assam, Mizoram, Leh and Ladakh and braved challenging weathers.

Anna was greatly influenced by Swami Vivekananda’s teachings.

In the year 1965, Pakistan attacked India and at that time, Hazare was posted at the Khemkaran border. On November 12, 1965, Pakistan launched air attacks on Indian base and all of Hazare’s comrades became martyrs

In 1978, he took voluntary retirement from the 9th Maratha Battalion

After serving 15 Years in Army Anna took the voluntary retirement and returned to his native place in Ralegan Siddhi, in the Parner tehsil of Ahmednagar district.

Ralegan Siddhi falls in the drought-prone area with a mere 400 to 500 mm of annual rainfall.
There were no weirs to retain rainwater.
During the month of April and May, water tankers were the only means of drinking water.
Almost 80 per cent of the villagers were dependent on other villages for food grains. Residents used to walk for more than four to six kilometers in search of work

Hazare came across the work of one Vilasrao Salunke, a resident of Saswad near Pune who had started a novel project of water management through watershed development in a joint venture with the Gram Panchyat. Hazare visited the project and decided to implement it in Ralegan Siddhi.

He steered the villagers to begin working towards water conservation.
At the outset, they completed 48 Nala Bunding work, contour trenches, staggered trenches, gully plugs, meadows development and of forestation of 500 hectares of land. Thereafter, they constructed five RCC weirs and 16 Gabion Weirs.

This resulted in increase in the ground water level.

Hazare’s Ralegan Siddhi became the first role model of an ideal village from the worst village to an ideal village.

Anna rightly thought that Development is marred by corruption and started a new venture in 1991 called Bhrashtachar Virodhi Jan Aandolan (BVJA) or public movement against corruption.
It was found that some 42 forest officers had duped the state government for crores of rupees through corruption in confederacy.
Hazare submitted the evidences to the government but the latter was reluctant to take action against all these officers as one of the ministers of the ruling party was involved in the scam.

A distressed Hazare returned the Padmashree Award to the President of India and also returned the Vriksha Mitra Award given by then prime minister of India Rajiv Gandhi.

He further went on an indefinite hunger strike in Alandi on the same issue.
Finally, the government woke up and took action against the criminal and corrupt officers as well as six of the ministers were forced to resign and more than 400 officers from different government offices were sent back to home.

In 1995 Shiv Sena-BJP government came to power in the state
Hazare raised the issue of alleged massive land purchase by Gholap's wife Shashikala in Nashik between April to September 1996.
He forwarded the available documentary evidences in support of his allegations to then Maharashtra Governor P. C. Alexander
On 4 November 1997, Gholap filed a defamation suit against Hazare for accusing him of corruption.
On 9 September 1998, Anna Hazare was imprisoned in the Yerawada Jail after being sentenced to simple imprisonment for three months by the Mumbai Metropolitan Court all political parties, every one from Maharashtra except the BJP and the Shiv Sena came in support of him
Later due to public protest, outcry the Government of Maharashtra ordered his release from the jail.

The state government has opened cooperative societies, credit societies & urban banks everywhere in states.
However, the directors of such societies do the corruption and failed to pay back the basic amount to the members of the societies.
Thus poor people get cheated when Anna saw this he again began his agitation against this.

Hazare agitated for over eight months.
The result was that more than Rs 125 crore was recovered from defaulters and the members of such societies heaved a sigh of relief.
Recovery of around Rs. 400 crores is in the pipeline.

After this Anna started to fight for the Right to information act.
Government ignored Anna.
In 1997 Anna agitated in Azad Maidan in Mumbai to create mass public awareness about RTI amongst the youth.
Anna started to travel across state.

Government promised Anna they will pass RTI act but in reality they never did it.
For this Anna agitated ten times for this law.

When Anna saw that Government is not willing to pass this law Anna went on an indefinite hunger strike at Azad Maidan in the last week of July 2003.

After 12 days of Hunger strike in Azad Maidan the President of India signed the draft of the Right to Information Act and ordered the state government to implement it with effect from 2002. The same draft was considered as the base document for the making of the National Right to Information Act-2005.

In 2003 Anna Hazare raised corruption charges against 4 ministers of the Congress-NCP government
Government ignored him
Then Anna started his fast unto death agitation on 9 August 2003.
He ended his fast on 17 August 2003 after then chief minister Sushil Kumar Shinde formed a one man commission, headed by the retired justice P. B. Sawant to probe his charges.
The P. B. Sawant commission report was submitted on 23 February 2005, indicted Suresh Jain, Nawab Malik and Padmasinh Patil.
Suresh Jain and Nawab Malik resigned from the cabinet in March 2005

Jan Lokpal Bill –
Agitation and hunger strike at the age of 73 and great victory against powerful and rich government

India against corruption movement
N. Santosh Hegde, a former justice of the Supreme Court of India and Lokayukta of Karnataka, Prashant Bhushan, a senior lawyer in the Supreme Court along with the members of the India against Corruption movement drafted an alternate bill, named as the Jan Lokpal Bill (People's Ombudsman Bill) with more stringent provisions and wider power to the Lokpal (Ombudsman)

On April 5 2011 Again Anna started second freedom struggle in India.
Anna wrote to everyone regarding Jan Lok Pal bill but no one listened him
After that on 5th April 2011 Started fast unto death to wake up the government for India.
Anna started war against corruption in India.
Hazare has started a fast unto death from 5 April 2011 at Jantar Mantar in Delhi, to press for the demand to form a joint committee of the representatives of the Government and the civil society to draft a new bill with stronger penal actions and more independence to the Lokpal and Lokayuktas (Ombudsmen in the states)

In beginning Government of India ignored him, many people said many things, but as First day was over Anna got the support from every corner of India and
No one has expected such a support Anna will get for this bill.

Over night table were turned and after 4 days of discussion with government of India servants .
Finally Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh realized that demand of Anna is right and government accepted all the demands of Anna.
Thus Jantar Mantar saved from becoming another Tahir Square.

10 Most Dangerous & Biggest Volcanoes In The World

Hey Readers, Here we have this interesting post about the top 10 biggest volcanoes of the world. This article will be really helpful for you people to know about the world’s biggest volcanoes
Volcanic mountains are the opening in the earth’s crust from which the hot LAVA or magma and gases escape from below the surface of the earth. Sometime Volcanic Mountains appear and erupt in a short time and on the other hand there are permanent volcanic mountains which erupt lava time by time and they are erupting LAVA  for thousands of year, if we look back into history volcanoes had killed thousands of people and devastated hundreds of towns.
