Racing Beat's founding duo, Jim Mederer and Takayuki Oku, began modifying and building rotary engines for racing applications back in 1972. It was a classic case of the American automotive engineer meeting the Japanese racer that brought these two unlikely partners together. Together, many early successes came while building engines for dirt track midget cars, IMSA R/S class RX-2's , Car and Driver Magazine's Bonneville RX-4, and Racing Beat's RX-3 NHRA drag car.
Needing a way to finance these projects, newly formed Racing Beat developed and offered a new line of rotary engine performance products. Not all engine development projects were racing applications, some of the more interesting projects in the next few years included a mechanically supercharged rotary engine, a single-rotor experimental engine for NASA, a 4-rotor prototype racing engine, a turbocharged self-contained industrial engine for seismic drilling, and a government-sponsored 1000HP aircraft engine for use in short airstrip takeoffs.
Racing Beat built several RX-7s for land speed record attempts both at El Mirage Dry Lake Bed in CA, and the Bonneville Speedway in Utah, Nevada. Three different Racing Beat RX-7s set new land speed records over a 25-year span. An ill-fated attempt in 1993 resulted in a harrowing airborne ride for car designer/driver Jim Mederer at speeds approaching 220mph! The car was repaired and in 1995 returned to the salt flats and established a new land speed record of 242.005 MPH. As a testament to the extraordinary accomplishments of the Racing Beat RX-7 race vehicles, these land speed records have stood the test of time for over 25 years!

Life By Chocolate
Mark and Kim LaPolla own the Greenville Arms 1889 Inn, the Hudson River Valley Art Workshops and the Hudson River Valley Fiber Art Workshops. During the art workshops, Mark LaPolla, who is chef and pastry chef, decided to start making chocolates for his diners and then later for his inn guests. Chocolates were put in the room for the inn guests and served at dinner for the artists. And like his cooking, the unique and tasty gourmet chocolates were met with immediate applause and delight.

"I couldn't be happier with the products and customer service at AlexaSpa. For the two products I've ordered from them, they have been incredibly responsive. The level of customer service matches one of a high-end boutique store or a company known for their personalized assistance, like Nordstrom. I had one question about the shipping date for my first product, and they responded to my email immediately, letting me know it's on its way. The products come extremely fast, shipping time is amazing and they provided me with excellent information on the phone."

A lively tale of cookery and passion illuminating the lives of immigrant families who created the Fior d'Italia, America's oldest Italian restaurant. The book chronicles the shenanigans of operating a San Francisco Italian restaurant during Prohibition, the complexities of serving an upstairs brothel and the requirements of pleasing VIPs such as Richard M. Nixon and Luciano Pavarotti. It offers a tapestry of American history, witnessed by Italian-American immigrants in San Francisco from the Gold Rush through the 1906 Earthquake and Fire and World War II to the 21st century.
Adventures in Beading: The first kind of bead work I did was a vast number of African Helix stitch bracelets. The instructions came from a book I took out of the local library, and the African Helix stitch seemed the most approachable out of that book, which was not beginner level. Everything else seemed too complicated. Still, having no experience in beading or even stringing at all, it took me the better part of the day to figure it out. It also took my husband helping me, mostly where I tried to skim over the instructions, omit steps that I judged unnecessary. Follow the instructions to a T! Even when they don't make sense.
Few products of the self-styled "Revolution of the Word" of the 1920s and 1930s have proved more disturbing to our sense of what is or ought to be valued art than Tropic of Cancer (1934), Black Spring (1936), and Tropic of Capricorn (1939). Other modernist novels, more radical and more conventional, move in and out of critical and public view, but for half a century Henry Miller's expatriate narratives have visibly marked the contentious boundary between "good" and "bad" art, "serious literature" and "popular fiction," "aesthetic creation" and "pornographic exploitation."
