As Bikes of Burden Rise,
One Company Peddles
Slowly to the Revolution

Wall Street Journal, by Barry Newman

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/21/2013 5:58:23 AM

NEW YORK—The cargo bike—a bicycle built to move stuff—is a "life-changing wonder," according to Liz Canning´s website. Ms. Canning, a digital animator in California, is making a crowdsourced video about the coming cargo-bike "cultural revolution." Cargo bikes can cost $3,000 apiece—$5,000 with electric assist. They have boxes or trailers for carbon-free carting—a hyper-hip answer to the pickup truck. Small workshops build cargo bikes in the U.S., or have them built in Taiwan. Many are Dutch or Danish imports.

Just what I want to see, slow moving bike cargo like India.

Idiots! Nothing is carbon-free! Where do you think that electricity comes from? Thin Air?

Somewhere, there is a generator, and the production of heavy equipment is NOT carbon-free!

Must work so well in the snow and rain.

Would be wonderful on the steep hills of San Francisco too.

I´m going to need six pallets of bricks to build a retaining wall this Spring. Let´s see, a pallet has 516 bricks weighing 4.5 lbs each for a total weight of 2,322 lbs. Six pallets will weigh almost 14,000 lbs.

It´s a 24 mile round trip to the brick yard, mostly on a heavily traveled Farm to Market road. Of course the down hill portion is on the way to the brick yard.

The "Super Heavy-Duty" will carry 500 pounds, requiring 28 round trips. Counting time to load and unload, I´ll commit to two loads per day. Assuming the brick yard will tolerate me having a broken pallet sitting around their site, it should only take two weeks to move the bricks to the construction site. Hmmm, it probably won´t rain much this Spring. You know, global warming and all.

Being 62, I´m not certain I want to spend two weeks pedaling bricks. But they did say I could put a small motor on the bike. The weight of the motor and fuel will probably reduce the payload and will require more trips. Or maybe I could hire a of the wetbacks (can we still say that in Texas?) to do the work. They are know to be honest, law abiding citizens who wouldn´t think of stealing my expensive bike.

Wonder how much I can get for a 2004 F-150?

Not to mention the extra calories you would need to consume to haul stuff like a farm animal. Inefficient and stupid.

Liberals are always squawking about how Conservatives want us to go back to the 50´s but they want us to go back to the pre-Industrial age or even the Stone Age.

This is such a load of garbage is what this is. Human animal power vs. the power of oil or gas. So you pedal yourself around - how many calories does that take? A bunch, I can tell you! Instead of needing 2000 calories a day - anyone who rides this bike for more than 1 hour or do a day is going to need upwards of 6,000 calories plus. Yeah, those poor people in Bangladesh use bikes and they are scrabbling all the time to get enough food. And think of the injuries - bursitis, torn muscles, bad knees etc - all from having to depend on a bike for transport. AGGGH!

OMG! Sorry to double post but I have ridden one of those ´tricycle´ bikes (from the 70´s) -it was terrible - heavy and un-steerable. I nearly wiped out going down a gentle hill because the back wheels were ´pushing´ and not giving any agility to the front wheel. The sheer idiocy of this makes me nuts. The end of the article tells about The Bike Man - hauling groceries in his bike. That is kinda like The Homeless Guy or the Town Drunk - doing his thing. Next thing we know the homeless advocates will be demanding the government buy these for the homeless.

I´m not sure the posters read the same article as I did. There´s an American company that still manufactures in the US, and is the top of its market. They sell bikes to industry like Boeing and people who operate their own businesses like ice cream carts - somebody made one with a BBQ smoker. My old man, as an industrial electrician, rode one with his tools around a plant for 35 years.

Sheeesh people, its a great story of free market capitalism. Stop trying to read more into it. Pickup trucks are not going to go extinct.

Take the keys to AF-1, 2, 3 and bury them 6 feet under the WH garden. If v-p biden needs transportation, he can ride in the cargo container of one of the 4 bikes.

Like #6, I am 62 years old.
I use a tadpole recumbent tricycle for local transportation (20miles round trip or less). Over 20 miles means $4.25 a gallon gasoline, and no excercise.

Weekly shopping at Walmart (15 miles round trip) takes at least 1 hr 40 minutes riding time. And that´s only 30lbs of groceries, or less!

And #21, we would own those 200 sq.ft. "apartments" not the bikes we use fro transportation. They´ll be graciously provided by the state, provided we´re good little worker-bees. I am sure, though, if we fail to meet our work quotas (or deviate from the "new normal"), we could look forward to other, less luxurious accommodations.

Are You a Modern Day Gentleman?
Country Life Magazine [UK], by Rupert Uloth & Emma Hughes    Original Article

Gentlemanliness is, without a doubt, Britain´s most enduring export. For Evelyn Waugh, writing breathlessly to Nancy Mitford in 1956, it provided no less than an explanation for ‘all our national greatness´. But, although he spent his entire life in thrall to the concept, he never explained what he actually meant by it. He, like most of us, assumed that you simply knew a gentleman when you saw one. Other writers have only managed to come up with partial definitions. For George Bernard Shaw, a gentleman always ‘puts more into the world than he takes out´. Oscar Wilde thought that a gentleman

In these selfie times when freedom, joy and posterity are just a head-tilt, grin and finger-click away, it is only fitting that the United States of America would have as commander-in-chief the undisputed King of Selfies. The Selfie Presidency for the Selfie Generation in a Selfie World. President Obama is that rightful king. There he is with the greatest baseball players of our day.

Good news: thanks to a ruling by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Monday, the "most transparent administration in history" is going to have to tell American citizens when it believes it´s legally entitled to kill them. The lawsuit arose out of Freedom of Information Act requests by two New York Times reporters for Office of Legal Counsel memoranda exploring the circumstances under which it would be legal for U.S. personnel to target American citizens. The administration stonewalled, asserting that "the very fact of the existence or nonexistence of such documents is itself classified," and a federal district judge

SUMMERVILLE, S.C. — Sen. Lindsey Graham recognized the threat years before it had a chance to form — and knew immediately what he had to do. After the tea party wave in the 2010 election, right-wing groups were itching to get one of South Carolina’s newly elected conservative congressmen to challenge Graham, the blunt-spoken, deal-making congressional veteran of two decades. Rep. Mick Mulvaney, a favorite of the grass roots, was high on their list. So when Graham got wind in 2012 that Mulvaney wanted a seat on the House Financial Services Committee, he quietly lobbied his longtime friend, Speaker John Boehner, to

If you have student loans, chances are you wish there was a way to make them disappear. And in a way, there is: The federal government now offers three repayment plans that lower monthly payments and will—eventually—forgive remaining debt. A separate plan forgives loans for people who take certain public-service jobs. Some of these options, however, are so new that nobody knows how well they´ll serve borrowers. Even when it comes to well-established repayment plans, many students don´t truly understand their options. And some analysts say that policy adjustments are needed to ensure that students don´t get too comfortable taking on

The Democratic Party’s obsession with income inequality and “the one percent” is factually misguided, science has found. Over the weekend, leading academic professor Mark R. Rank discussed the findings of a recent scientific study on income inequality in the New York Times. It turns out that, according to scientific data, the Left’s horror stories about a rigid class structure in the United States fueled by nefarious, wealth-hoarding one-percenters is false. “The picture drawn of the 1 percent has been that of a static population, just as the 99 percent is often portrayed as unchanging,” Rank writes. “There is a line drawn between

Raced-Based Preferences Forever

You can often tell when advocates of one side in an argument fear they will ultimately lose. They change their branding. A few years ago, warnings about “global warming” were replaced with scare stories about “climate change.” One reason? The Earth had stopped appreciably warming in the late 1990s, making the change a PR necessity. Supporters of affirmative action are now signaling similar weakness. What was called “racial quotas” in the 1970s and has been referred to as “affirmative action” since the 1990s is giving way to a new term: “race-sensitive admission policies.” The language shift is telling — race-based preferences

Would you boycott a family dinner because your grandfather holds some politically incorrect views about welfare recipients? Or, would you uninvite a neighboring family from attending a block party after learning that they attend an evangelical church that upholds a traditional definition of marriage? Most reasonable people would say “no,” adhering to the old adage that it’s rude to talk politics in polite company. Unfortunately, this rule of etiquette that has governed civil society for ages seems to be quickly evaporating in the world of commerce, as highlighted by the now notorious case of Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich.

The attempts of defenders of Obamacare to rouse the American people in favor of the doomed monstrosity have become more desperate and bizarre. The most recent example is taking place in Florida, where the sudden death of a young uninsured woman is being cited as an indictment of the Republican-controlled state legislature for refusing to approve the Medicaid expansion so generously being offered by the feds. If the woman in question had access to federally-mandated Medicaid, they argue, she would of course have gone in for preventative screening which would have revealed her cardiac abnormality and somehow saved her life.

But the offer Rick Perry made to Gov. Cuomo has its own drama. In New York again to persuade Empire State businesses that everything’s bigger in Texas but the taxes, Gov.

Ah, April 22, when environmentalists celebrate Earth Day, and communists celebrate Lenin’s birthday, and no one really bothers to notice either any more. What happened? The decline and fall of communism was a mathematical certainty, but what explains the profound disinterest that Americans have in the environmental movement? Just ask Gallup—where you will find environmental concerns pretty much at the bottom of what activates people’s neurons, and, within that diminishing category, the iconic specter of dreaded global warming ranks near the bottom of environmental concerns. In the 1970s, Earth Day brought out millions of the eager, prompted dozens of quaint

Before the cannons fired at Fort Sumter, the Confederates announced their rebellion with lofty rhetoric about “violations of the Constitution of the United States” and “encroachments upon the reserved rights of the States.” But the brute, bloody fact beneath those words was money. So much goddamn money. The leaders of slave power were fighting a movement of dispossession. The abolitionists told them that the property they owned must be forfeited, that all the wealth stored in the limbs and wombs of their property would be taken from them. Zeroed out.

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing
