|Super tuner Hennessey has put out some radical Corvettes as the years have glided by and now the company has released its version of the true Super Auto and has dubbed it the Hennessey Efficiency Venom GT. Component Lotus and Part Corvette , this car has been fashionable on the chat panels and much speculation had gone into the inner workings of the automobile.
Now the answers that everybody was looking for are abundantly clear and also the Hennessy Efficiency Venom GT is definitely blowing away expectations to say the extremely least. To call it a ‘performance’ auto is a real understatement of the term itself as the motor car represents the top of the ideal in as much as elements goes.
The Hennessey Efficiency Venom GT strategies the scales at a really scant two,400 pounds and at just over a ton, this super car has a ton of power. Under the hood of the Venom GT lives a Corvette ZR1 LS9 V-8 engine that’s complimented with dual turbos. The 6.three liter engine is capable of putting out 725 horsepower and about 741 foot pounds of torque. The end result is usually a vehicle that can cruise from 0 to 60 miles per hour in about 2.4 seconds and will do leading speeds approaching the 265 mile per hour mark.
Carrying the enormous engine and the rest of the light weight Venom GT is a Lotus Elise chassis. This lightweight yet extremely powerful chassis is regarded by quite a few within the auto globe the cream in the crop.
The transmission is often a Ricardo six speed manual that is also top of the line. The Hennessey Efficiency Venom GT will also boast the programmable traction operational controls similar to the one made use of in the Corvette ZR1.
The vehicle will make its official public debut this year at the Goodwill Festival of Speed and Hennessy only plans on producing ten models per annum. The Venom GT has already been planned to land in Russia, the Middle East, Europe , and Asia. No plans are set as of yet for a landing date inside the United States.
These wheels will price about $600,000.00 and if you think that is an excessive amount of money, contemplate that Hennessey has already pre-sold four units. Just as with any other super vehicle, as the’re a great many people with tons of cash and a like for speed, you will have a market place for the super automobile.
For the lucky few that do get to own one of these works of art they might likewise want to think about the next level of Venom GT already within the works. As reported by Hennessey , the newer versions will have 1000 to 1200 horsepower and will plainly blow the doors off of the very first generation.
For now though everyone with the cash as well as the speed fever can obtain one of these beauties. As nice as it is to simply see the Hennessee Efficiency Venom GT in pictures or in person, the final in pleasure will visit those who actually get to drive one.

Piles and piles of research show that students learn better when they are fully and actively engaged in what they are learning, rather than attempting to passively absorb information. That is why good teachers in all subjects and at all levels find ways to get students fully involved. In science classes, one of the most important tools to achieve this goal is hands-on lab work.
Unfortunately, some topics don't lend themselves very well to classroom experimentation. Genetics is a good example. Most studies of genetics require breeding large numbers of organisms through several generations. Some teachers manage to do fruit fly , bacteria, or Arabadopisis (a species of quick growing mustard plant) breeding experiments, but the logistics are daunting. Fortunately, there are alternatives. The very best alternative that I am aware of is Dragon Genetics.
Dragon Genetics is a free, downloadable program made by Pedogicica. As the name suggests , it allows users to explore the genetics of dragons in great depth. By happy coincidence, dragons have many genetic parallels with more familiar organisms, including humans.
Dragon Genetics is admirably clear and thorough. It starts out at the very beginning, and it goes all the way through the topics covered in AP Biology. From the beginning, it explicitly links the principles of genetics with the physical structure of chromosomes , rather than following the historical path of first discussing phenotypes and patterns of inheritance and only later connecting those facts to the physical structure of DNA.
Dragon Genetics teaches about monohybrids, dihybrids, mutations, and x-linked traits, among other topics. It does not discuss epigenetics , mitochondrial inheritance, or other similarly advanced subjects.
One of the characteristics that make Dragon Genetics effective is its sense of whimsy. The graphics are not cutting-edge, but the cartoon dragons are appealing and it is fun to figure out how to breed fire-breathing animals. At least as important is the structure of Dragon Genetics. The student must actively engage with the program, and do so successfully before being allowed to move on. In essence, the student learns about genetics by performing "experiments" and interpreting the results. Carefully structured questions guide the student through the process of interpreting "experimental" data. Of course the experiments are just computer models , with pre-determined results, but they are very good models and they allow for a genuine process of inquiry to take place.
As a tutor, I have used Dragon Genetics as an independent-study tool with considerable success. Because time is often quite limited when I'm helping students prepare for exams such as the Living Environment Regents, the SAT subject test in biology, and AP Biology , I will have students use Dragon Genetics to review genetics and related topics such as meiosis on their own, t.
