One of us bought a Volkswagen Turbo Diesel Sportwagen on August 24. The car seemed too good to be true, offering three features that are usually incompatible: great performance, great gas mileage, and low tailpipe emissions. A few weeks later, he learned that the impressive specs described to him in the showroom were not correct. Volkswagen diesel engines change their behavior radically when they undergo emissions testing.

Everyone has goals that they strive towards. Whether it is to spend more time with family or eat less junk food, goals are ubiquitous in our day-to-day lives. However, despite the prevalence of goals, failures in self-regulation abound. You need only to look at the current epidemic of obesity and the parallel financial success of the diet industry to know that while many people have goals associated with weight loss and are sinking money into pursuing them, most are failing at these goals.
