What we learned this week

Those with an interest in the Basic Income might want to check out the preliminary findings of the trial in Finland.

Review: Burley Coho XC suspended bike trailer keeps heavy loads from bouncing around

If you’ve ever hauled anything in a trailer behind your bike, you’ll appreciate what suspension can do. Either the trailer is too light and it’s just flitting about, skipping and bouncing over every little pebble. Or it’s loaded down, perhaps with a couple of small humans (not this trailer, but one designed for such things), […] The post appeared first on Bikerumor.

What we learned this week

Is Swansea’s Tidal Lagoon power plan back from the dead? I certainly hope so. It’s fiendishly expensive, but it’s a world first large scale renewable energy project. Somebody has to try it first and it might as well be Swansea. Jason Hickel responds to the often repeated claims that global poverty is falling, as tweeted […]

Tom Brady, Tony Romo & Andy Warhol—Together at Last

While it wasn’t a super Super Bowl (unless you’re Tom Brady and team), but it’s always a pleasure to listen to former NFL player Tony Romo call the game. But my favorite part of the game was the Andy Warhol commercial. It grabbed my attention because I wondered what I was looking at. Was it […]

Real Life Super Bowl Follows Hollywood Script

While Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff is wearing #16 in real life Super Bowl today, the above photo is actor Warren Beatty wearing #16 and playing in the fictitious Super Bowl from the movie Heaven Can Wait.  Crazy coincidence—especially since the movie was in theaters 40 years ago and the uniforms are pretty similar.

What we learned this week

The idea of ‘sobriété énergétique’, or energy restraint, is gaining traction among local authorities in France.

And as the article points out, an internal combustion engine’s […]
