Autoweek: Carmen Jorda and Formula One’s money problem.

Honestly, if Jorda were a man, most F1 fans would look at the Lotus deal with mild irritation. ‘Another guy with money is getting a gig he doesn’t deserve.’ But when it’s a good-looking woman who gets the job, people lose their minds.

The Coolist: Aston Martin Vulcan is Built for Racing Daredevils Only.

The Vulcan is powered by a 7.0-liter V12 engine that produces 800+ horsepower under the pedal.” I love the early versions of this body style; they’ve been tweaking it into ugliness over the past few years. I’ll want to see this in real photos before judgment.

Daily Mail.UK: American Benjamin Miller gored by bull at Carnaval del Toro in Spain yesterday.

Benjamin Miller of Georgia underwent a three-hour operation to repair damage to his thighs, sphincter and back muscles after being tossed and gored by a bull.”  Darwin Award winner for the weekend. I now have a new mental image of ‘head butt’.

Mashable/Report: Sports Illustrated lays off all staff photographers.

I imagine satff photographers have gotten as lean as they can, and yet they still can’t win against freelancers. When these transitions happen, I find consistent quality goes down.

Amazon, book — Lyn St. James: An Incredible Journey.

This book should be in every high school. Lyn didn’t start racing the Indy 500 until she was 45.  Never say never, people. The whole book is an inspiration, for all women. I had the pleasure of meeting and talking with her at Santa Fe Concorso this year; she’s ‘good people’.

SF New Mexican: Officials - Hiker found north of Santa Fe ski basin died of hypothermia.

In late JULY, note. When we’re nearly at our hottest temps. I keep banging on about this, but you can so easily be hiking, have a thunderstorm crest those mountains, and experience a 60 degree temperature drop in minutes. I see so many people, too far from the trailheads, woefully unprepared.  I do stop and advise (gently), when there’s an opportunity.

Alpacka Raft.

I always wanted a light boat to carry up to the mountains; most weigh a ton (30-40lbs). This one’s 10 pounds. But at a cost ... $1,900.00. Woof.

NY Times: South African Prosecutors Say They’ll Appeal Pistorius Conviction and Sentence.

I’m still not buying the burglar theory. I suspect the prosecution simply couldn’t construct, from available evidence, a convincing enough alternate scenario in the time they had. In a private two-person relationship, the trail is thin on the ground.

If I were a young lady, I would never ever date a prominent sports star. The odds are against you.

Jeebus. Frankly, I’m surprised he’s alive. Looked like his head was getting lopped off. And then, the immediate deceleration. I’ll wager he’s got much more than just severe head injuries to deal with. Best wishes for his recovery.
