Conducting Sociological Experiments

Surveys are a general view, examination or description of someone or something.

Direct Observation is firsthand observations using instruments to evaluate something, such as a weather phenomenon.

Experimentation is a testing of an idea.

And using Results helps you with your experimentation.

In this project I used a variety of systems to get our results. By observing, and actively being apart of the actual project has given me a hands on experience. Our experimentation I would perceive as a success, as I have learned only a certain part of Tumblr, has been explored, and so much more could be seen. Yet, our project is just an overview of what could be seen, and experienced. This project was quite educational, and exposing us to different parts of the world.

2013 Mercedes-Benz C-Class

The Mercedes-Benz C-Class remains the most accessible of the brands models sold in the United States, delivering the expected levels of advanced engineering, design and safety features that keep it highly competitive within the entry luxury segment. For 2013 the C300 and C350 have new 3.5-liter engines with ECO start/stop technology.

The C-Class is offered in three rear-wheel drive sedan and coupe configurations. Additionally, the C250 and C300 sedans are available in either Sport or Luxury trim levels. The C250 is powered by a 201-hp 1.8-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, while the C300 is equipped with a 248-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine and the C350 gets a 302-hp 3.5-liter V6; all three engines. To sum it all up these C-Class 2013 Mercedes Benz will pack enough power to impress anyone.

Mercedes Benz A Class 2013

"The A-class concept got people excited. Mercedes showed us a three-door hatchback with some attitude, and it promised derivatives would arrive here soon. Things were, quite literally, looking good. And they still are. Mostly.

drive of the taller B-class, which shares its underpinnings with this new A-class, had us looking forward to sampling the versions we’ll get here. And we still are. But after seeing the five-door revealed ahead of its Geneva debut, for once we’re not clamoring for the hatchback. Something has been lost in the transformation from concept to production, and the car doesn’t seem to have enough Mercedes in its design.

Fear Not, Compact-Luxury Intenders

You may or may not like how this five-door hatch looks (we may or may not ourselves), but won’t be among the front-wheel-drive Mercedes we’ll see here. The first will be a small, sleek sedan, which may be called CLC. Ifspy photos are any indication, it should do a convincing baby-CLS impression.

But back to the A-class at hand. It will be offered in Europe with the usual wide-ranging engine menu. Gas options include a 1.6-liter turbo four in 121- and 154-hp strengths (installed in the A180 and A200, respectively) and a 208-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four (A250). Diesel models include the A180 CDI (107 hp, 184 lb-ft), A200 CDI (134 hp and 221 lb-ft), and the 2.1-liter A220 CDI (167 hp and 258 lb-ft). All feature engine stop-start and can be paired with either a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. 4MATIC all-wheel drive likely will be added soon.

We’re sure to see the 2.0 gas turbo in models sold here, and the 2.1-liter turbo-diesel wouldn’t be a huge surprise—it will arrive in the U.S. first in the refreshed GLK. We’re also hoping a 300-plus-hp AMG engine makes its way into U.S.-bound A-class derivatives. Fingers crossed.

Few Surprises Inside

Much of the interior matches what we’ve already seen in the B-class. It all looks nice enough, with metallic finishes on plastic pieces to impart the luxury feel the badge suggests. It’s also packed with enough tech to choke a Cray: an iPhone-integrating infotainment system, standard Attention Assist, and available nannies such as Mercedes’ Pre-Safe collision-prep suite, radar cruise and collision warning, automatic high beams, blind-spot assist, lane-keeping assist, and of course a rearview camera.

AMGee, You Shouldn’t Have

Mercedes also will offer an A-class AMG Sport package. It rides on a suspension supposedly tuned by real AMG engineers and gets lightweight 18-inch AMG wheels, which look as though they could have been swiped from a C63. We do question the package’s red accents—front and rear fascia trim, seat belts, interior air vents, and brake calipers!—especially given the comparatively understated nature of AMG’s own cars. The diamond-look grille from the concept doesn’t quite work here, either. Again, we’ll wait for the real AMG A-class.” -CarandDriver.com

tiptalk asked:

How much does a Mercedes Benz ADV1 cost? And are the LED lights included already or is that a custom package? -Zane(A.H.)

The Mercedes Benz was a customized vehicle by ADV1 which is a Automobile Wheels manufacture so there is no real MSRP on the vehicle. On the other hand though the car itself would cost you $153,000 before the rims and paint, LED included. And that is the cheap model that come with a Handcrafted 5.5L Biturbo V-8 Engine by AMG, in translation that is 0 - 60 in 4.4 seconds and 536 ponies… HI-YAH!

Would you rather get a car with better fuel economy and looked like a Prius? Or would you shell out the extra money and get a car with bad fuel economy but looks really nice. - MA

If i had the money to spend I would get a really nice car with bad fuel economy. But a good practical car with good fuel economy would be a prius. -SF

Blue Hawaiian Punch

image

Blue Hawaii punch is an interesting Elvis-inspired drink that’s high in flavor and low on calories. Stir a packet of any blue-colored Kool Aid mix into a large punch bowl filled with a liter of club soda. Add enough Splenda to suit your taste. Place a bit of pineapple juice into the bowl for added color and flavor.

Spoon low-fat ice cream into cups and pour the drink over top for a refreshing tropical-flavored beverage, and for those adults over the age of 21 you can even mix and match different types of alcohol to the Blue Hawaiian Punch mixture to have a good time and/or to relax with a calming drink of your liking.
