JerryBrown.The final plan for the fiscal yearstarting July 1 meets Brown’sdemands for a rainy day fund andpaying down debt while allocatingsome of the surplus to programsbenefiting lower-incomeCalifornians.Assemblywoman NancySkinner, D-Berkeley, highlightedsome of the additional spendingthat was a priority for Democraticlawmakers, including $264 mil-lion for preschool and day care forlow-income families that eventu-ally will cover half of all 4-year-olds in the state.She said schools, libraries, artprograms, student financial aid andwelfare-to-work programs wereamong the many state-supportedservices that will see more moneyin the coming fiscal year.“The investments in this budgetare the most significant in years,”said Skinner, chairwoman of theAssembly Budget Committee.She also noted the money dedi-cated to start paying down thehundreds of billions of dollars instate debts and liabilities, sayingthe budget will “put California onstrong fiscal footing.”In the Senate, President Pro TemDarrell Steinberg recalled theremarkable turn-around from whathe described as the “bleak winter”

Raising $40 million in venturecapital in March, expanding tomore than 430 customers andemploying nearly 250 people setthe stage for Coupa Software tomove into its new headquartersfrom downtown San Mateo toSiebel Systems’former headquar-ters at the Crossroads of Highway101 and State Route 92. Founded in 2006, Coupa is acloud-based procurement applica-tion that provides companies witha platform to do more than orderoperational equipment; it allowscompanies to analyze the waythey do business, said Coupa CEORob Bernshteyn.“One of the things we take themost pride in here, and I say thison behalf of a couple hundredemployees … the pride comes ingetting our customers to success-ful outcomes,” Bernshteyn said.“There’s been a lot of softwaresold over the years … most cus-tomers can never honestly saythat they’ve gotten measurable,successful value out of that soft-ware. So for us, we’re actually real-ly proud that we’re measuring theoutcomes.”Coupa’s application empowersbusinesses to be fiscally con-scious by tracking how theiremployees purchase productsessential to their jobs and, bydirectly linking buyers to suppli-ers, customers are able to leveragesavings, Bernshteyn said.

he steam engine is an externalcombustion engine. Its develop-ment goes back as far as the firstcentury, however, the development of the first piston steam engine didn’toccur until 1690. Invention of itsapplication was slow but many insightsinto the use of energy to help mankindget places and build things were pro-gressing. In the 1700s, James Wattmade great strides in perfecting thesteam engine. The steam engine usedcoal or wood at first to generate thesteam and the steam needed to be pro-duced in a huge container in the earlystages of development. Problem. Toobig and cumbersome. Eventually, auto-mobiles were built using smallerengines but the startup was time con-suming and expensive. Most of theautos being built were one of a kind andexpensive. The average working manmade only between $300 and $400 ayear and most prices of autos were morethan $5,000. The auto became a statussymbol because only rich people couldbuy them.In 1885, Karl Benz invented the firstautomobile using many of the conceptsof the steam engine without the steam.Petrol was found to be a great improve-ment over running the pistons for anautomobile but the steam engine con-cept persisted and the race was on as towhat type of engine would succeed inbeing the main type of locomotion forthe roads. People liked the freedom of driving and they wanted a reliable andinexpensive form of vehicle to do thisin. Many people jumped on the band-wagon to produce something that wouldcatch on.In the early 1900s, more than 1,000businesses sprung up to supply an auto-mobile for the public. Over the years,cars like the Cord, Stutz, Franklin,Maxwell, Pierce-Arrow, Duesenberg,Hupmobile, Olds, Chevrolet, Ford,Studebaker, etc. became well-knownbrands.The first mass-produced auto that tast-ed success was the one that Ransom E.Olds made in the early 1900s and it pro-duced 425 cars that year. It was the firsthigh-powered volume gasoline poweredautomobile. Olds was acquired byGeneral Motors in 1908. In 1904, theMaxwell-Briscoe Company of Tarrytown, New York, was formed. Saleswere good, but a fire in 1907 forced amove to New Castle, Ind. WalterFlanders acquired and reorganized thecompany as Maxwell Motor Company,Inc., and moved to Detroit. TheMaxwell was one of the top three sellersfor a while but competition forced it tobe sold to a former employee, WalterChrysler in 1927. The ChryslerCorporation was then formed.Henry Ford jumped into the competi-tion and began producing his autos in1903. He produced many prototypesover the next few years until he hitupon his successful production, theearth-shaking model, the Model T, in1908. Being very innovative, Forddeveloped the moving assembly line toput cars together and, by doing this,blew the competition away for manyyears. The Model Twas the mass-pro-duced car on assembly lines with com-pletely interchangeable parts and mar-keted to the middle class. The Model Twas started with a hand crank. This wasvery dangerous to say the least. Myuncle Bill lost his front teeth when hiscrank kicked back into his face whiletrying to start the engine. The auto hada flywheel magneto that produced thespark. Abattery, added in 1928, wasadded for more dependable spark to thespark plugs. Electric headlights wereadded in 1915 and, after 1919, most carswere equipped with an electric starter.The two-speed transmission with areverse gear later evolved into a three-speed stick shift. The automatic trans-mission was developed later and was
