However, the MP4/8 was competitive enough to achieve some remarkable successes. Even though rival Alain Prost was in the superior Williams FW15C, Senna's skill enabled him to lead the championship until after Canada, by winning 3 of the first 6 races, which consisted of his 2nd victory in Brazil, his 6th Monaco Grand Prix victory and one of his greatest drives in the rain-soaked 1993 European Grand Prix at Donington Park in England. Later in the season, the Frenchman asserted the dominance of his Williams to take the lead for good, while Senna fell off pace during the second half of the schedule and dropped to third place. While Prost clinched the championship with two races to spare, Senna went on to win the last two races in Japan and Australia. The Brazilian had five wins in total, and finished second in the Drivers' Championship to Alain Prost, whilst McLaren finished runners up to Williams in the Constructors' Championship.

The car scored 84 points during the season, 73 of which came from Senna, for an average of 2.63 per start. While Senna took the championship battle to the last few rounds, Michael Andretti had only a few points scoring finishes, including one 3rd place in his final race at Monza. Some factors were outside Andretti's control; with a restriction on the amount of testing teams were permitted in 1993, he never tested a Formula One car in the wet and a string of collisions meant that he only completed three laps in his first three races. Andretti also never came to grips with highly technical aspects such as active suspension and traction control, two "gizmos" not found in the simpler CART. Lastly, Andretti continued to reside in the United States, commuting to F1 races and test sessions. This also caused him to miss several test days. By mutual agreement, Andretti was released from his contract after the Italian Grand Prix where he scored his only podium for the team. To date (2017) this remains the last podium finish achieved by an American driver in Formula One.
The potential for the car and engine was there for all to see. According to former McLaren and now Pratt & Miller engineer Ian Wright in 2015, "When the Lamborghini engine was bolted onto the MP4/8 it did not go any quicker, so some downforce was added to enable the extra power to be used. Had the MP4/8 had the Lamborghini engine on the back instead of the Ford it would have had the pace to win the '93 championship comfortably."
History shows that this never happened as plans were by then already in motion for McLaren to use the Peugeot A6 V10 in 1994. In late 1993, Senna had already signed for Williams for the 1994 season; 20 years later, Dennis revealed that Senna would have remained with McLaren had McLaren signed Peugeot earlier (as he believed a 'works' partnership to be essential to success in F1), but felt obligated to stay with Williams. At the time, it was speculated that Senna believed that despite Peugeot's recent success with its 3.5 litre V10 in endurance sports car racing, having won Le Mans in 1992 and 1993 as well as the 1992 World Sportscar Championship, the engine would not stand up to the rigors of Formula One where the engines were under high strain and were constantly being pushed to their limits, nor did he believe that the Peugeot engine had enough power to challenge the Renault V10; both beliefs were proven correct over the course of the 1994 season. The McLaren MP4/9 Peugeot which followed was closely based on its predecessor, but was not as successful as the engines proved woefully unreliable (eventually becoming infamous for failing spectacularly) and promised development from Peugeot never eventuated. After a dismal 1994 season, McLaren severed ties with Peugeot and began its successful partnership with Mercedes in 1995. Following Senna's win in Australia, McLaren would not score another until four years later at the 1997 Australian Grand Prix, which was won by David Coulthard in the MP4/12.
Despite recording fewer wins, it was Prost who won the championship: Senna won three of the opening four races, but a combination of poor reliability and a collision with Mansell while leading the Portuguese Grand Prix cost the Brazilian dearly.
Changes from the MP4/5 included alterations to suspension geometry, updates to the transverse gearbox, redesigned sidepods and radiator ducting, plus a larger fuel cell and a monocoque made from a new material that could better stand up to impacts and crashes. The windscreen design was changed too, and a diffuser added for better aero at the rear.
But here, today, I want to hear from them. Because you know where I stand. I stand with an outstanding individual, who came up through the process to be my nominee with the highest court in the state. Hector LaSalle, our next Chief Judge of the New York State Court of Appeals. He's the right person. He worked hard, parents born in Puerto Rico, working class family, having to deal with all the stress of being a young Puerto Rican man who wanted to make his mark. Went on to college, went to one of the finest law schools in our nation, Michigan, and came back and could have been recruited by one of those big law firms. He decided to devote himself to public service, serving his community, the District Attorney's office, the Attorney General's office, and ultimately deciding, despite the fact that there's not many role models, very few Latino judges out there, "I want to show what can be."
He ran for office, he got elected, he was appointed, and for years now, he has been presiding over one of the most complicated, difficult courts in our nation. Hundreds and hundreds of people come to those doors every day in the Appellate Division. He presides over that. With the right temperament, the right disposition, all the qualities you want to see in a judge of fairness and doing what's right. And so, to this community, I want to hear your voices. I thank you for standing with him, all across the state. This is just one community, but all across the state, people are expecting him to have the process, the fairness that has been accorded every other similarly-situated nominee in the history of our state. They all had their chance, not prejudged, not labeled, not misrepresented, but treated fairly. That's what we're asking for, justice and fairness for a man who deserves it.
Ladies and gentlemen, as the Governor of State of New York, one of the highest responsibilities I have is to nominate judges and ultimately the Chief Judge when there's a vacancy of the Court of Appeals. I took that process seriously. I examined all the records. I saw the cases, even those that are being maligned and used against him, and they are false, being falsely represented, and that's what I will not stand for.
So I thank the people coming out here today. On Dr. Martin Luther King weekend we celebrate a man who stood for doing what's right, and standing up to adversity, standing up to challenges in the pursuit of doing what's right. That's what today is all about. That's what Wednesday will be all about, it'll be what the floor on the vote is all about, and I believe, when people open up their minds and open up their hearts, doing what's right, he'll become our next Chief Judge, and I could not be prouder. Thank you. Congressmember Nydia Velázquez, thank you for adding your voice to this important debate.
Vinyl has a number of physical limitations to consider. If the frequency of the recorded audio is low and the amplitude is too high (loud), the needle becomes prone to bouncing out of the groove and causes the record to skip. Audio engineers apply specific mixing rules to music recorded to vinyl to prevent skips and tracking errors. A standard technique is to pan the bass in the center of the stereo mix.
A good turntable can achieve impressive playback specs given how long ago the discs themselves became standardized. However, compared to the basic specs of an audio CD, the difference in performance is quite clear: digital is objectively more accurate and consistent.
Over the past few decades, due to the removal of the physical limitations of vinyl media and the spread of digitized music, songs have become increasingly loud. A shift occurred in the mid-1990s, when artists and their labels wanted their tracks to stand out, based on the simple premise that louder equals better. This was achieved in practice by making more excessive use of dynamic compression and limiting at the mastering stage.
George Duffield, Jr. (b. Carlisle, PA, 1818; d. Bloomfield, NJ, 1888), was inspired to write this text after hearing the dying words of a Presbyterian colleague, Dudley A. Tyng. Ousted from his own congregation for his strong anti-slavery stance, Tyng preached to large crowds in weekday meetings sponsored by the YMCA. His work spearheaded an evangelical revival in Philadelphia early in 1858. At Tyng's deathbed, caused by a farm accident in which he lost an arm, Duffield and others asked if he had any final message. Tyng replied, 'Tell them to stand up for Jesus!" At Tyng's memorial service on April 25, 1858, Duffield preached on Ephesians 6:14 and concluded his sermon by reading his new hymn text, "Stand Up, Stand Up for Jesus." Several lines in that original text referred to Tyng's words and ministry. The six-stanza text was first distributed in leaflet form and then was published in The Church Psalmist (1859). The Psalter Hymnal follows the custom of most hymnals of including the original stanzas 1, 3, 4, and 6 with updated language.
"Today has been an extremely sad day for so many people around the world. I would like to offer my deepest condolences to all of those affected by the horrendous events in Paris. We at Honda all stand united in our support.
"I think he's gotten a lot better," head coach Dom Capers said. "It's forced him to play with his hands inside and use better technique where when Chester first got here, his technique, when he was outside, was to hold on for dear life. You can't use your strength and power so he understands leverage more now and keeps his hands inside. And he certainly does have the strength." 041b061a72
