2-STROKE VS 4-STROKE ENGINES



You may have noticed I’m fond of cars and engines. That’s also why I’d like to be an engineer one day. Today I’m going to describe the most common types of car engines. You may have heard the terms 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines before, but do you really know all of the differences in their operation? I hope my post and the video below may help if you don't. 


The combustion engines are the most common type of engine with regard to means of transport like motorcycles, cars, busses and trucks but they are used also for small power tools like lawn mowers and chainsaws. In one of my articles in the blog I mentioned how they work but these two types have a small difference that change how they are made and used. How it works? A piston connected to the crankshaft by means of a connecting rod, flows up and down in a cylinder thanks to the force generated by the explosions of a mixture of air and gasoline. The connecting rod has the task of transforming the piston motion into a rotary motion.  But let’s talk about the differences about 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines.

CHINA: REEDUCATION CAMPS OR CONCENTRATION CAMPS? THE PERSECUTION OF THE UYGHUR MINORITY


The other day  while I was scrolling the home page  of YouTube, I came across a video that struck me. It was about some facilities discovered in China thanks to satellite images. The surprising thing is that from above you can see the shadows of fences , a surrounding wall and some watchtowers . But what are exactly these facilities? To understand it we have to know  first the history of the Uyghurs .

The  Uyghurs  are a Turkic ethnic minority which lives mainly in Xingjian province of northwestern China.They are closer to the capital of Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan than to Beijing. They are also closer culturally to those Turkic groups than they are to the Han ( China's ethnic majority ) .

5 (+1) CURIOSITIES ABOUT NAPOLEON “BONAPARTE”





On this day in 1815 Napoleon was defeated by the British at Waterloo.  Napoleon Bonaparte was one of the cheekiest and most reckless emperors in history. He rose to prominence during the French Revolution and led several successful campaigns during the French Revolutionary Wars, becoming in short time so powerful as to crown himself emperor of France, and so important as to condition the whole of Europe even after its fall. However, also such a charismatic figure hid  more or less bizarre facts.
