Tangente Cork Brake Pads

$40.00 – $43.00

Zipp's Tangente Cork Brake Pads are perfect for Zipp wheels with carbon braking surfaces. They are made of a composite cork polymer for consistent brake response and to reduce glazing from the intense heat caused by braking on carbon.

As a result, the Tangente cork pads avoid the brake pulsation produced by residue buildup from rubber pads and can even eliminate pulsation from rims with previous buildup. These pads have a unique shape with more material in the front to improve durability and shed water.

Although the composite material wears similarly to low-temperature rubber compounds, the Tangente cork pads last longer than most rubber carbon-specific pads because of the shape and 0.5 mm greater overall thickness.

Vuka Alumina Aero Bar Extensions

$52.00

Zipp developed an extensive line of aluminum aerobar extensions to provide the perfect fit for any rider, regardless of size or riding position. Vuka Alumina Extensions offer three different bends to achieve your ideal fit.
– Vuka Alumina Ski-Tip offers a hand position for long-haul comfort and speed.

– Vuka Alumina Evo are available in both a 70mm (176g) and 110mm (180g) rise.

Designed to deliver improved aerodynamics by placing hands closer together to start airflow over the rider sooner, the shape of the Vuka Alumina Evo is crafted to feel as if the rider is shaking hands with the bar.

This is achieved through the use of a multi-radius bend paired with a 20mm inward roll of the bar that can be adjusted to dial-in fit and achieve an ideal position.

CN105659213A – Target-driven independent data integrity and redundancy recovery in a shared-nothing distributed storage system – Google Patents

  • Recover without the target drives independent data integrity shared in distributed memory system and redundancy
  • Technical field
  • The present invention relates to the nothing being made up of the cluster of the independent computer system (node) being connected by network and share distributed memory system.

Background technology

During the migration of data within the storage system, the data stored in storage system must be reliably maintained and I/O (I/O) process must not be interrupted. Such as, for write operation, during moving, storage system must reliably track data Obj State.

A kind of currently known methods uses writes mark, and the data area being modified wherein was marked as such as ” dirty ” mark before write data on public/shared ” scoring board “.

In the method, it is necessary to some steps, it comprise the request of record write data, send message to each target storing data, etc. to be written and response, then send actual write operation.

Aforementioned method causes the increase that the network of write operation postpones.

Whole senior data storage areas is labeled as dirty by another kind of known as memory method. But, this kind of method is infeasible for mass data, because it needs the recovery of the whole big polymerization of data. Files-designated can also be designated as dirty to indicate amendment at file system level by known storage system.

But, the mark in file system level other places cause flag data there is thick granularity and cannot be effective to very big data file, this causes recovery to need long period to complete.

In addition, in the centralized database data block is labeled as dirty in the art-such as the outward expansion of Parascale company store in platform software-be also known.

Similar functions in well known storage systems also comprises and is such as being incorporated into this United States Patent (USP) the 6th by reference, 907,507,6,910,111,7,089,385 and 6, the quick mirror image of VERITAS volume management device (VxVM) described in No. 978,354 is synchronous (FMR) feature again. No.

the 6,907,507th, 6,910,111,7,089,385 and 6,978,354, United States Patent (USP) uses multiple row bitmap, accumulation device map and the map according to mirror image.

For the recovery from I/O mistake, the storage system (volume management device and multiple copied file system) of prior art needs central manager or by directly reading or write data to perform recovery, or needs combinator to carry out managing to resume process.

The recovery that the shortcoming of this kind of configuration is central management suspends when combinator experiences fault, and this causes the complicated further of recovery process. In addition, in order to tackle the possibility of combinator fault, it is necessary to reliably keep a large amount of metadata in sharing and storing device.

When partial write data recovers, the mirror image that prior art is adopted by the volume management device implementation of many use central databases or certain volume level bitmap heavily connects and forms with mirror image ” again synchronous (resilvering) ” method.

Other implementations use to carry out from a central position (all volume management devices) directly reading and recover management device with the central of write or have the central coordinator (such as the outward expansion storage platform software of Parascale company) recovered for driving.

Delete These Words to Crush Redundancy

When you’re writing an essay, the point is typically to sound smart while proving your arguments. But sometimes, in an effort to come across intelligently, writers take a deep dive into redundancy! Paying a little extra attention to the words you use can make a big difference in creating a polished essay.

Take a more critical look at your writing to find unnecessary words. Often the phrasing will sound natural at first, but once you pause and think about it, you’ll realize you’re using more words than needed. Here are a couple of examples:

Currently

The word currently is often unnecessary or redundant. Similar offenders are right now, at this point, at the moment, or even just now. These phrases are often part of a sentence that’s already written in present tense. For example,

“At this moment, the U.S. Supreme Court is considering whether it will hear the appeal.”

“Right now, there is currently no wait-list for the program.”

Together

Another example of redundancy is the phrase joined together. One word already means something the other word is reinforcing. In this case, just joining does the job, as it implies two or more things are coming together—making the word together unnecessary.

Similar instances are falling down and safe haven. Once you start looking for these, you may find it hard to stop; they are everywhere. Even your lunch may be redundant … tuna fish, anyone?

This doesn’t mean repetitive words are never useful. When used appropriately, they can act as a way to emphasize a point, prevent misunderstanding, or convey a particular style. But there’s a difference between making a choice for stylistic or content reasons and overusing words because you haven’t thought through their meaning.

10 redundant words (words you can delete)

In one of his six rules for writers, George Orwell said: ‘If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.’ Shorter is better, he was saying. Using more words than necessary to express ourselves can make for bad writing and be confusing to the reader.

While Orwell was referring to clarity in technical and political writing, there are many everyday sentences and phrases which also contain unnecessary words.

In this post we will look at some common examples of words which, in certain cases, should be deleted. (Incidentally, the term for using a word which adds no extra meaning to a sentence is pleonasm. When we use a word which simply repeats the meaning of another word, it is called tautology. In both cases the unnecessary word is redundant and should be deleted.)

1. years’ time

He intends to retire in three years’ time.
‘Time’ is redundant here and can be deleted. The sentence says nothing that ‘He intends to retire in three years’ doesn’t say. Adding ‘time’ only increases the chance of forgetting to use the apostrophe after ‘years’.

2. the reason why

The number of crimes is increasing but detectives don’t know the reason why.
For some people, ‘the reason why’ is acceptable in the middle of a sentence. However, ‘why’ is clearly redundant after ‘reason’ when placed at the end of a sentence, as in the above example. Either remove ‘why’, or delete ‘reason’ and write ‘detectives don’t know why’.

3. whether or not

I don’t know whether or not he’s coming.
This is a similar problem to ‘reason why’. It is sufficient to write or say ‘I don’t know whether he’s coming.’

4. currently + being done

The bridge is currently being repaired.
The word ‘currently’ is both unnecessary and incorrect here. The present continuous passive structure ‘is being repaired’ tells us that the action is taking place now. Including ‘currently’ merely repeats that.

Alternatively, we could say ‘The bridge is currently under repair.’

5. past experience

Research has shown that past experience helps us make complex decisions.
The word ‘past’ should be removed. This error is surprisingly common, even in serious publications. ‘Past history’ and ‘past tradition’ are similar examples.

6. the mark / the level

Turnover fell below the two million pounds mark.
It is enough to write ‘Turnover fell below two million pounds.’ By adding ‘mark’ we are simply putting a redundant word on the end of the sentence.

7. estimated at about

Profit is estimated at about 10 million pounds.
In essence, ‘estimate’ and ‘about’ have the same meaning. Write either ‘is estimated at 10 million pounds’ or ‘is estimated to be 10 million pounds’.

8. very unique

Whitney Houston had a very unique voice.
Something cannot be ‘very unique’, not even Whitney’s voice. Things are either unique or they are not unique.

9. the old adage

As the old adage says: don’t burn your bridges.
By definition an adage is always old. In terms of its age, it can be nothing but old. Say only ‘the adage’.

10. think to myself

I thought to myself how strange it seemed.
And that is a very strange thing to write. After all, who else can we think to other than to ourselves? Make it ‘I thought how strange it seemed.’

I hope you found this article interesting and useful. If so, please share it with friends. Thanks.

Writing Concise Sentences

In addition to reading this section of the Guide and taking the quizzes at its conclusion, we urge you to visit William Strunk's Elements of Style, which has had a salutary effect on several generations of writers who have bought “the little book,” and which is now, thanks to the Bartleby Project, online. (This online text is not exactly the same as the familiar text you'll find in bookstores, which was edited by E.B. White, but much of the really good stuff is the same.) We also recommend “The Perfectibility of Words,” by Robert Hartwell Fiske, editor of the online journal Vocabula Review.

Vigorous writing is concise. A sentence should contain no unnecessary words, a paragraph no unnecessary sentences, for the same reason that a drawing should have no unnecessary lines and a machine no unnecessary parts. This requires not that the writer make all his sentences short, or that he avoid all detail and treat his subjects only in outline, but that every word tell. — William Strunk Jr. in Elements of Style

Whether it's a two-word quip or a 200-word bear, a sentence must be a lean, thinking machine. Here are some notes toward efficiency and conciseness in writing.
