TBT - The new Ducati Monster 1100 EVO was first showcased at the 2010 EICMA show. The naked, street bike from Ducati has undergone an upgrade which the Italian bike maker calls the 1100 EVO. Basically, its a lighter, more powerful version of the standard Monster and now features Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and ABS.
The Desmodue Evolusione Twin still features a 98mm bore, 71.5mm stroke and 1078cc displacement. The Desmodromic cylinder head has undergone a change with more aggressive cam profiles which increase valve lift. The shape of the inlet ports and combustion chamber have also been altered with new pistons as well.
The revisions add five extra horsepower, with its 100 bhp. The Monster 1100 EVO is the first two-valve Ducati to have 100 bhp. Ducati Safety Pack (DSP) comes as standard with the 1100 EVO which consists of ABS and Ducati's production traction control system. The Ducati Data Analyser (DDA) system is available as an add-on. The bike now rides on 10-spoke rims with Pirelli Diablo Rosso tires being offered as an optional extra.

TBT - (WXYZ) - A passenger flying from San Francisco to Paris was witness to the aurora borealis light display.
Passenger Nate Bolt captured photos every few seconds to create a time-lapse video of the phenomenon.
It took 2,459 photos and 10-15 hours of editing to stitch the photos together but it proved to be worth it as it has become an internet sensation.

TBT - On this day in 1743, Thomas Jefferson, who drafted the Declaration of Independence and served as the nation's third president, was born as the third of 10 children into a prominent planter's family in Albemarle County, Va.
Near the close of the Revolutionary War, Jefferson served two terms as Virginia's governor. Returning to the United States from France after the ratification of the Constitution, Jefferson became the nation's first secretary of state under President George Washington and then vice president under John Adams. During those years, he led the Republican-Democrats, one of two rival political parties, from which today's Democratic Party descends.
Jefferson had briefly retired from public life but returned to it after the death of his young wife, Martha, in 1782. He then helped craft congressional legislation that laid the foundation for governance of America's western territories.
Soon after Martha died, a French visitor, the Marquis de Chastellux, having conversed at length with Jefferson at his Monticello home, wrote:
"Let me describe to you a man, not yet 40, tall, and with a mild and pleasing countenance. … An American, who without ever having quitted his own country, is at once a musician, skilled in drawing, a geometrician, an astronomer, a natural philosopher, legislator and statesman. … Sometimes natural philosophy, at others politics or the arts, were the topics of our conversation, for no object had escaped Mr. Jefferson; and it seemed as if from his youth he had placed his mind, as he has done his house, on an elevated situation, from which he might contemplate the universe."
In 1801, Jefferson merged the roles of president and party leader, setting a precedent that all presidents have followed. During his two terms, he arranged purchase of the vast Louisiana Territory from Napoleonic France.

TBT - The Texas Rangers, riding along the first two weeks of the season with baseball's best record, simply couldn't take it any longer.
These guys just can't stand the thought of prosperity.
They need drama to get their juices flowing. They need controversy. They need folks to question their ability to survive.
Now, at a time when everyone was starting to acknowledge they were baseball's finest team, along comes a broken arm to MVP Josh Hamilton. He will be out about two months, the Rangers say. He won't even pick up a bat for a month.
It gets even worse. Hamilton, angry about the injury, criticized third-base coach Dave Anderson for sending him home on the play. Anderson says that Hamilton never should have slid head-first. And general manager Jon Daniels backs up Anderson.
Welcome to the best reality show in sports.
"It took 11 games before we shot ourselves in the foot,'' Rangers manager Ron Washington says, "and we'll bounce back from this one.''
Certainly, no organization has had more experience dealing with adversity, Rangers general manager Jon Daniels says, than this one.
You want proof? Take a look at the events in the last year:
Washington had to tearfully address his team and reporters after news broke that he tested positive in July 2009, for cocaine.
The club was placed in bankruptcy and had to have all of its deals approved by Major League Baseball.
Their ace and postseason hero, Cliff Lee, bolted for Philadelphia.
Their most tenured player, Michael Young, asked to be traded.
Their new CEO, Chuck Greenberg, was forced out by his fellow partners.
Daniels wanted their All-Star closer Neftali Feliz, to be a starter, only to relent to Washington and president Nolan Ryan's wishes to remain as closer.
Their No. 3 starter, Tommy Hunter, suffered a strained groin just before opening day, and will miss the first six weeks.
Their biggest pitching acquisition, Brandon Webb, still has not pitched in even a minor-league game.
And now their best player, Hamilton, rips the coaching staff.
"We play an aggressive style of baseball,'' Daniels says. "We run, we take extra bases. The chances of getting hurt on that play are minimal.''
No matter who was wrong, the Rangers now must play without Hamilton. He'll be replaced by David Murphy, who hit .355 with three homers and 17 RBI last September as Hamilton's replacement.
"Obviously, he's a big part our club,'' Daniels says of Hamilton. "We built the club to deal with something like this.''
Certainly, after what the Rangers have endured, you have to believe him.
He's the same guy who refused to panic this spring when everyone wondered how the Rangers' pitching staff would survive without Lee and no true ace.
"Call me crazy, I like our pitching,'' Daniels told USA TODAY this spring. "We don't have a track record and a lot of experience, but there's a lot of talent here.''
The Rangers indeed have proven the experts wrong. Their pitching staff, behind converted reliever Alexi Ogando, has carried the Rangers to a 9-2 record. Ogando, a middle reliever last year, is 2-0 and hasn't given up a run, yielding just four hits in 13 innings. Derek Holland, who was bounced out of the rotation last year, is 2-0, and has given up just three runs in 12 innings.
The Rangers' staff has yielded two or fewer runs in five games of their nine games.
"These guys have got some swagger now,'' says Rangers brilliant pitching coach Mike Maddux. "They know they belong.''
And now that the Rangers have a little adversity back in their lives, there may be no stopping 'em.
