Workhorse Group Incorporated is an American manufacturing company based in Cincinnati, Ohio focused on manufacturing electrically powered delivery and utility vehicles. The company was founded in 1998 by investors who took over the production of General Motors' P30/P32 series stepvan and motorhome chassis. By 2005 they were taken over by Navistar International, selling them diesel engines since before. Navistar shuttered the plant in 2012, to cut costs after having suffered heavy losses. In March 2015 AMP Electric Vehicles took over Workhorse Custom Chassis, changing the company name to Workhorse Group Incorporated, began offering a range of electrically powered delivery vans; as of 2016, the company offers the familiar W62 chassis and a newer, narrow-tracked version called the W88. Their first product was the P-series, based on the Chevrolet/GMC P30-series stepvan/mobile home chassis. An earlier version was the W42 chassis, they were managerially involved with the construction of Navistar's eStar electric van, until it too was cancelled in early 2013.
Workhorse briefly offered an integrated chassis/body model called the MetroStar, hearkening back to the long-lived International Harvester Metro Van line. There were the low-floor bus chassis, as well as a rear-engined recreational vehicle chassis called the UFO. In November 2016, Workhorse announced that they were working on an electrically powered pickup truck, called the W-15. North Carolina's Duke Energy has stated that it will buy 500 of the vehicles, the city of Orlando is interested, it is scheduled to have a battery range of 80 miles. A gasoline range extender supplies further range. In December 2018, Workhorse announced that they were debuting its SureFly, an electric vertical take off and landing octocopter at the 2019 North American International Auto Show; the SureFly would be built for Air medical services, military organizations, agricultural customers, for urban commuting.

In 1891, the company established its own printing plant; the next year it inaugurated the Schirmer's Library of Musical Classics. The Musical Quarterly, the oldest academic journal on music in the U. S. was founded by Schirmer in 1915 together with musicologist Oscar Sonneck, who edited the journal until his death in 1928.

Amp Energy is an energy drink brand produced by Rockstar Inc. and owned by PepsiCo. At the time of its introduction in 2001, Amp Energy was distributed under the Mountain Dew soft drink brand. Since 2009, it has been labeled under its own stand-alone trademark name; the beverage is packaged in both 16-ounce and 24-ounce cans, is sold in the United States, the United Kingdom and Lebanon. As of 2009, Amp Energy was the number four energy drink brand in the U. S. in terms of overall retail sales. The original formulation of Amp Energy was positioned as a flavor extension of the Mountain Dew brand, in 2001 its label read "Amp Energy Drink from Mountain Dew". In 2008, the label design was changed to contract the product name to a more concise "Amp Energy", with the Mountain Dew logo being shifted to the lower portion of the cans. In Amp's 2011 redesign, the Mountain Dew logo was taken off the cans completely. According to beverage industry commentators at the time, this labeling update was enacted with the intent of "placing a stronger emphasis on the'Amp Energy' brand and less on its Mountain Dew roots".
Amp Energy Original contains taurine, B-vitamins, guarana and maltodextrin. 8.4 fluid ounces of Amp contains 74 milligrams of caffeine. The Amp Energy product line has since expanded to a broader range of flavors and variants, which as of 2011 included Amp Energy, Sugar Free, Relaunch, Traction, Green Tea and Sugar Free Lightning, watermelon. Traction has since been renamed to Boost. There was a limited edition flavor named Tradin Paints, an Orange/Lime/Berry drink. In February 2010 a new series of juices was launched under the name Amp Energy Juices, which are made with B-vitamins, taurine and guarana; these juices are produced in two flavors: Orange and Mixed Berry, are packaged in 12-ounce bottles. Introduced at this time was Amp Energy Gum, made from a blend of B-vitamins and caffeine. On March 6, 2013, Amp Energy announced that it will re-introduce its Orange flavor. 2018 introduced new flavors. An'Amp' branded citrus-flavoured energy drink distributed by Britvic under license from PepsiCo.
Launched in the UK in August 2013. The United Kingdom version of Amp Energy is released under the'Mountain Dew' brand with a UK-unique new logo; this is similar to its early release in North America, with the Amp logo featuring the text'Powered by Mountain Dew' beneath it. Amp Energy — Powered by Mountain Dew features a higher caffeine content than Mountain Dew Energy at 31 mg/100ml, it contains real sugar as is common with other UK soft drinks. Amp Energy was the title sponsor for the inaugural NHL Winter Classic outdoor game on New Year's Day 2008. Amp Energy sponsored Kevin Lepage's No. 61 Peak Fitness Racing Ford for the 2006 Daytona 500. In 2008, Amp Energy began sponsoring NASCAR Sprint Cup Series driver Dale Earnhardt Jr. and his No. 88 car. In 2009, Amp Energy released Tradin’ Paint, a limited edition Earnhardt Jr.-themed energy drink, a combination of three flavors: orange and berry. The product was available in 16-ounce cans and featured the same paint scheme as Hendrick Motorsports’ No. 88 Amp Energy/National Guard Chevrolet car.
In late 2011, PepsiCo withdrew its Amp Energy sponsorship. PepsiCo has sponsored the Talladega Superspeedway race for multiple years, resulting in the race being titled the "Amp Energy 500" in 2008 and 2009, the "AMP Energy Juice 500" in 2010. In October 2010, Amp Energy Juice produced a short film about Talladega Superspeedway titled The Legend of Hallowdega which starred David Arquette, directed by Terry Gilliam and included appearances by Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Darrell Waltrip. The sponsorship ended in 2011 as the race is now known as the Good Sam Club 500. Amp Energy sponsors a snowboard team which includes athletes Mason Aguirre, Keir Dillon, Kevin Pearce, Jack Mitrani, Luke Mitrani and Scotty Lago. In 2009, Amp Energy joined Burton Snowboards to sponsor the 27th Annual US Open Snowboarding Championships at Stratton Mountain in Vermont. Other snowboarding events in which Amp Energy is a primary sponsor include the Burton Am Series, Burton Demo Tour, Burton World Tour, the Canadian Open Snowboarding Championships.
A 2009 promotion involved graphic designers and artists creating custom Amp-branded refrigerators which were placed in designers' homes and retail stores that included Crooks and Castles, Rogue Status, Huf Clothing and Reed Space. Designers that participated in the promotion included Topher Chin, Steve Aoki, Omar Epps and Han Cholo. According to Women’s Wear Daily, this initiative was carried out “as part of Pepsi's bid to recast the image of its Amp Energy drink as the beverage of choice for the fashion and lifestyle crowd.” In 2010, Amp Energy became the official energy drink of the World Extreme Cagefighting series, before the WEC went defunct in the same year. It is the sponsor of UFC athletes Urijah Faber, Chad Mendes and Joseph Benavidez. Official website
Amp is an electronic space rock band formed in London by Richard F. Walker in 1992, after collaborating with David Pearce on The Secret Garden and the Distance projects. Amp recorded the audio cassette/short story Green Sky Blue Tree with Ray Dickaty, while Walker was studying at the Royal College of Art in 1992. After a two year break, Amp resurfaced with French vocalist Karine Charff, Bristol experimentalists Matt Elliott and Matt Jones on board. MC Strong in'The Great Indie Discography' described Amp as: "Occupying musical territory somewhere between shoegazing and the Bristol'Trip Hop' sound, AMP had created a work of sweeping soundscapes, echoing ambience and waves of feedback."Jones and Elliott left to pursue their own projects by 1997. Since Amp has centered around Charff and Walker plus a succession of collaborators, including: Guy Cooper and Gareth Mitchell of The Secret Garden, who worked with Amp on Astralmoonbeamprojections Robert Hampson, who worked as producer on Stenorette Olivier Gauthier, on Stenorette and L'Amour Invisible Jan Zert, on L'Amour Invisible Marc Challans on US Ray Dickaty, on Green Sky Blue Tree, US, All Of Yesterday Tomorrow Donald Ross Skinner, on US, Oetinger Villa, Outposts Richard has released solo records, as Richard Amp and Amp Studio.
Some review quotes for'All Of Yesterday Tomorrow' “For many, this writer included, the loose collective that birthed Flying Saucer Attack, Third Eye Foundation and Amp offered a window onto a new world of possibilities informed by a confident reimagining of rock history... As this excellent three disc collection of rarities illustrates, the music instigated by Richard F Walker under the guise of Amp epitomises this movement's preoccupations and preferences.” “Little of the material here sounds dated, what does is affectingly so, like a faded childhood photograph or a half-remembered TV theme. For the most part, Amp's cavernous drones and unanchored plaints are disarmingly present in their refreshing lack of affectation or calculation. It's a pleasure to make their acquaintance once again.” --Joseph Stannard– The Wire“A mind-expanding 3 CD set... the music does just what its creator intended.” “Some of the tracks featuring vocalist Karine Charff err towards conventional song structures while the looped and treated field recordings of'Wild Wine Gaze' churn away like a vast weather system.'When You Have Love' is quintessential Amp, with Satie-like piano ceding to a billowing blur of electronics and unrecognisable sounds, flecked with fragments of melody.”
Mike Barnes– Mojo“This triple CD survey of Amp's work from 1992 to the present is valuable.” “Richard Amp started out at the tail end of the UK shoegazing movement but heard in sequence like this, his music distils the scene's most appealing elements. It's diverse: from the brooding isolationism of'Lutin' to the Portishead-style trip hop of the recent'Fine Day', whose elegiac mood recalls late-period TalkTalk.” --Rob Young– Uncut“The dreamy strum and warble of'Melatonin Red' have an evaporating gorgeous quality... In terms of glorious distortion, clanging atmospherics, complementing vocals,'Beyond', from 1997, is hard to beat. In an ideal world it would have been a chart-busting smash! My favorite item here,'Moon Tree', is majestic and mournful, with intense shimmering waves of guitar coupled with effects and feedback codes, it is six minutes of total bliss.” “'All Of Yesterday Tomorrow' is an undoubted treat... The collection looks back, but I suspect that future listeners will look kindly upon Amp.” --Duncan Edwards– Brainwashed “Amp produce exquisitely spaced-out, cataclysmic dreampop that can only be listened to lying down...
Their immobile hymns to emotional unrest are created from base elements of distortion, organic instruments, a cacophany of natural found sounds, Charff's zonked-out Nico drawl, occasional electronic and folky flourishes.” “Three and half blissful hours of dark, drifting music that introduces itself settles down and waits for you to zone out into semi-consciousness before overpowering you with its beauty, a wondrous feat of stealth and magic.” --Robin Wilks– Plan B “I was quite stunned at the amount of utterly beautiful music on offer here... It is entrancing and calming, launching a quiet intensity, impossible to ignore.” “I haven't been familiar with Amp's earlier output but on the strength of this stunning compilation I think I need to remedy that immediately. This is just formed drone rock music, with leanings towards so many other fractured genres it would be impossible to list them all... Gorgeous.” – Boomkat “Now this is a treat... Comes with excellent sleeve notes, a detailed booklet, plush packaging and 38 lovingly complied tracks.
A treat for those who know Amp and an bigger treat for those who have yet to discover their beauty.” “Has there been a musical experience more soothing and calming than Amp? An aural massage, floatation for your ears and glowing musical colour that washes over in such a rewarding relaxing challenging way; the space where music and sound meet, choral, uplifting positive drones and textures, always always uplifting, always bright, always welcoming, expressive melodies, hints of lyrics, sound in beautiful harnessed harmony magical and rather gloriously unique. A recommended treasure box of Amp goodies.” – Organ Magazine “D
Auto Mag Pistol
The.44 AutoMag pistol is a large caliber semi-automatic pistol. It was designed between 1966 and 1971 by the AutoMag Corporation to make a semi-automatic pistol chambered in.44 AMP. The pistol's reputation and looks have made it popular in cinema and novels and several versions are listed as "Curios and Relics" by the BATFE; the short-recoil operated AutoMag pistol featured a rotary bolt with locking lugs located at the front similar to the M16/AR-15 rifle. The AutoMag is a heavy pistol designed to give handgun owners.44 Magnum power in a semi-automatic pistol. The.44 AutoMag was designed to shoot.429 inch, 240 grain bullets at about the same velocity as the.44 Magnum revolver. In 1970, AutoMag Corporation president Harry Sanford opened a factory in California; the first pistol was shipped on August 8, 1971, the factory declared bankruptcy on May 3, 1972, after making fewer than 3,000 pistols. The company closed several times from 1973 through 1982 under several different names. Namely TDE, OMC, Thomas Oil Company, High Standard, AMT.
An additional 6,000 pistols were produced and sold during this period for a total of about 9,000. Sanford continued to sell spare parts until his death in 1996. Harry's son Walter continued to sell the remaining parts through automagparts.com. Production guns were made in.44 AMP. Experimental pistols were made in.45 ACP.30 AMP.357 AMP and.41 JMP. Changing calibers required only exchanging the barrel – the frame and bolt could be used with all calibers except.45 ACP. AutoMag Corporation was short-lived for several reasons; the design team, headed by Mark Lovendale, took the AutoMag pistol from a functional machined chrome-moly steel prototype designed by Max Gera to a more complicated and less reliable welded up stainless steel pistol. Gera left the company. Additionally, the new design team was convinced the AutoMag pistol was not ready for production and could not be produced at a profit; the design team believed that with the correct finished design, the wholesale price of the pistol had to be increased or the company would go bankrupt.
The design team was unable to convince Sanford, they all resigned. The pistol was rushed into production by a group that were not concerned with the pistol making a profit but only that it got into production immediately; this led to expensive manufacturing processes, Pasadena guns were not fitted well as there was a constant push to get the product delivered. Severe under-pricing of the AutoMag pistol to indicate huge market demand to potential investors made success impossible. A final analysis showed; the pistols sold retail for $217.50 in the 1970s. Used AutoMag pistols now sell for around $3,000–$4,000. In August 2015 Walter Sanford sold all the assets of the company including the name and all rights to AutoMag Ltd. Corp. a South Carolina-based corporation. Auto Mag is producing the first 77 Founders' Edition pistols with an 8.5" barrel, selling for $3,995 each. Classic Edition pistols with a 6.5" barrel are planned to sell for $3,495 each. AutoMag Pistol Chambering:.44 AMP.357AMP.41JMP. Barrel Length: 6.5 inches.

Some of Jurras's custom guns had custom leather holsters and magazine pouches, shoulder stocks, high polish jobs, gold plating, etc.
The.44 AutoMag Pistol cartridge was introduced in 1971. Its rimless, straight wall case was formed by trimming the.308 Winchester or.30-06 case to 1.30 inches. Loaded ammunition was once available from the Mexican firm of Cartuchos Deportivos Mexico and from Norma, which produced empty cases. The.357 AMP round went into production in 1972 with the North Hollywood guns. It is necked down to accept the smaller diameter bullet; the same is true for the.41JMP.30.25 and.22LMP. Presently, loaded ammunition is available from Cor-Bon as
AMP was an American music magazine founded in 2003, by Brett Matthews. It featured interviews and live reviews and band journals. Online, it featured audio, as well as video game reviews, it ceased publication in 2013. AMP was published monthly with a print run of 80,000 copies, it focused on punk and metal music. Some of the prominent editors were Lucas Andrews, John Joh, Johnathan Marshall, Lisa Root, Jake Round, Tony Shrum, Sean Stepp, Chris Taravella and Nick White. Matthews' beginning in music journalism started with a fanzine he wrote titled Hit List, it lasted three years. AMP, a sister publication Hails & Horns came together, circa 2000. AMP broadened focus from the underground music scene, which allowed for coverage of bands not featured in its contemporaries Maximumrocknroll and Alternative Press, he notes in an interview with Metro Post-Telegraph, that "AMP started getting out of it's sector and started getting too big." In 2012, NOFX lead vocalist and bassist Fat Mike funded the magazine.
AMP ceased publication in 2013. An official notice from Matthews read, "we thank you for your more than a decade of support, undying love and celebration of that, our underground, it has been an amazing ride, we can't wait to see what awesome magazines arise to tell the story of the shape of punk to come." Between 2003 and 2011, AMP released over two dozen CD samplers, as well as five genre compilations titled AMP Magazine Presents, including material from Atreyu, Every Time I Die, New Crash Position and Sick of it All. A review by AllMusic for the first compilation, Vol. 1, says "it's a solid mix of tracks all the way through, perfect as a mix tape for scene veterans, but better as an introduction for newbies," adding that "for them, it should have come with earplugs." Two DVD video albums were released.
