Ford’s feisty new ST Fiesta will become the fourth model to join the Australian Ford Performance lineup.

Due to arrive in the second quarter of 2019, it joins the Mustang, Focus RS and soon to be launched Ranger Raptor.

“There is a strong appetite and passion for the Fiesta ST in our line-up, and can see the affinity and esteem that Australians have with driving enjoyment of the existing model,” Ford Australia boss, Graeme Whickman, said.

“Fiesta ST shows the depth of enthusiast models that we’re bringing to Australia, with everything from this hot hatch through to the Ranger Raptor.”

The new Fiesta ST will be powered by not a four, but a three-cylinder turbocharged engine that’s hooked up to a 6-speed manual — there’s no auto.

The previous model earned plenty of accolades so this one has a big shoes to fill, especially with one less cylinder to call upon (and only two when cruising).

The new 1.0-litre three cylinder turbo delivers 147kW of power and 290Nm of torque , dispatching the dash from 0‑100km/h in an estimated 6.7 seconds.

In comparison, the current ST produces 134kW and 240Nm from its 1.6-litre four cylinder turbo.

A new combination of port fuel injection and direct fuel injection technology helps deliver high power and responsiveness alongside reduced CO 2 emissions, with an increase in fuel efficiency under light engine loads – thanks to cylinder deactivation which turns into a two cylinder when cruising.

Ford’s new cylinder deactivation technology – a world first for a three-cylinder engine – takes just 14 milliseconds or 20 times faster than the blink of an eye to change between two and three cylinder mode seamlessly delivering full power.

The all-aluminium engine features an integrated exhaust manifold that improves efficiency by helping the engine reach optimal temperatures faster and delivers torque more rapidly by minimising the distance exhaust gases travel between cylinders and turbocharger.

The third generation Fiesta ST will be the first ever Ford Performance vehicle to be powered by a three-cylinder engine.

It will also be the first ST to feature drive modes, enabling changes to engine, steering and stability controls, with Normal, Sport and Track settings for an optimised fun-to-drive experience on motorways or at track days.

The system also includes Electronic Sound Enhancement (ESE) technology to deliver an even more satisfying driving experience.

Torque Vectoring Control is standard and helps to reduces understeer by applying brake force to the inside front wheel when cornering.

Do you lift things up and put them down?

Many of you have undoubtedly seen the Planet Fitness ads that mock bodybuilders.

Personally, I find the “ I lift things up and put them down ” ad somewhat poignant — there is a certain existential purity and focus to the bodybuilder’s mission that many of us might wish to emulate in purging the distractions of modern life. He is akin to a Zen prophet — merely a humble traveller on the Way of Weights, where enlightenment comes simply from moving the body towards a dedicated objective. reviews the messages inherent to PF’s ad campaign, as well as the more real challenges in a gym where serious lifting is discouraged. I remember similar problems in a Globo gym about 15 years ago, where I was told, “This isn’t a deadlifting gym.”

Arnold wept.

Now, let’s imagine the scene — I am a small female lifter. I’m not intimidating anyone with my mighty 95 lb DL (or whatever I was lifting in 1996), besides perhaps a 6-year-old child. I don’t smash my weights; I put them back assiduously, carefully stacking the plates properly (even taking several minutes to rearrange the plates on the racks so that they all hang in the proper order).

This is the same gym that made me feel like a lardy piece of crap when I showed up to get a membership — after having proudly lost about 20 lb.

And there’s no deadlifting for me. For no other reason than… well… this isn’t a deadlifting gym. (Amusingly, the guy who actually owned the gym was a waddling steroid-slab who wore the stereotypical bodybuilder ensemble and loved to make pants-crapping sounds while shrugging. Do as I say, not as I do, I suppose.)

The larger problem is that many commercial gyms are businesses. They couldn’t give two shits about getting you into shape. Their business model is based on taking your money and ensuring you don’t show up.

In fact, Globo gyms are much like the high school cliques of popular kids that occasionally pretend to include you as long as they can cheat off your science test, then shove your face into a locker while mocking your haircut. It casts a veneer of republican meritocracy over a feudal system.

Conversely, one thing I have always loved about the serious strength world is its deep sense of democracy.

They don’t care if you’re a fatass, a pencil-neck, a four-eyes, a dweeb, geek, dork, banger, or spaz… as long as you show up, work hard, and try your best. If your best is a tuna can or a water jug, fine. See you tomorrow, kid. We’ll give you a bigger tuna can in a week.

They also don’t care if you think you’re a shit-hot athlete or have abs like the Rockies. Either you can lift the weight, or you can’t. Shut your mouth, grab a bar, and get to work. (Delightfully, other gyms have begun to respond to PF’s strengthphobia with their own ad campaigns , although I’d love to see the sequel where a kindly old lifter takes the pocket-protected nebbish under her wing and turns him into a squat god.)

The Death of Apollonius

The Backlash Against Him

Apollonius of Tyana

The voice which had one night cried to the ship’s captain, “Pan, great Pan is dead!” still echoed over the Tyrrhenian sea; the three magi of Chaldma had hardly climbed their towers after their journey to Bethlehem — when Apollonius was born in the little town of Tyana in what is now Turkey.

According to legend, great wonders marked his birth. The least remarkable, though still interesting because it is quite credible, seems to be worthy of being set down here. Just before he was born, his mother was walking in a meadow; she lay down on the grass and went to sleep. Some wild swans, at the end of a long flight, approached her and by their cries and the beating of their wings awakened her so suddenly that the infant Apollonius was born right there at the moment and before his time. Possibly — for there is a relation between the birth of certain persons and the life which surrounds them — these swans had foreseen and marked by their presence the fact that on that day was to be born a being whose soul would be as white as their own plumage and who, like them would be a glorious wanderer.

Apollonius, exceptionally, received the gift of physical beauty. Sometimes it seems as if men with the seal of the spirit are apt to be nearsighted, disproportioned, deformed. It is as though their inner fire causes irregularities in their physical bodies. And their careers are accompanied by vague murmurings to the effect that they have followed the barren path of thought only because the path of pleasure was closed to them. But there was nothing of that sort said of this favored among the children of Greece. And the renown of his beauty and intelligence grew so great that the words, “Whither do you hurry? Are you on your way to see the young man?” became proverbial in the province of Cappadocia where he grew up.

Another unusual gift was that of a great fortune. His father was one of the richest men in the province, so that his childhood was spent surrounded by luxury. He lacked nothing, and from his early acquaintances, Apollonius retained a leaning towards the aristocratic, a foible for greatness that impelled him, on his travels, to hasten, before doing anything else, to visit the monarch of the country in which he happened to be, and, later at Rome, to become the counselor of the emperors.
