In our constant quest to return oldies but goodies from our old website I present the MassBike guide for locking up your bicycle, with some updates. You can download this brochure for printing here (.doc) We’ve all seen them “ lone bicycle wheels locked to parking meters, and broken bike locks hanging from fences with no bicycle in sight. Maybe you’ve come back to where you left your bike “ and found that it’s been stolen! We here at MassBike never want this to happen to you. Here’s what you can do to avoid bicycle theft: Always lock your bike! This bike is locked to a rack with a cable lock and a mini-U-lock. Don’t leave removable gear on your bike. Here are some rather poor locking jobs: It is possible to go a little overboard: via flickr How To Lock Up Your Bicycle | MassBike How To Lock Up Your Bicycle | MassBike

Patagonia Down Sweater - Men's Patagonia Down Sweater - Men's Like most manufactures Patagonia doesn't provide a temperature rating for their technical garments. There are several factors that influence how people experience temperature, and a rating would be wrong 9 times out of 10. There is no garment that will keep someone warm at -30 on its own. Even the thickest down parka won't keep you warm if you're not wearing pants. Our warmest jackets usually have "jacket" or "parka" in their name, and won't be called "hoodies" or "sweaters."

Οι θεωρίες συνωμοσίας για την αποστολή του Apollo 11 και ο ρόλος του Stanley Kubrick (Ντοκιμαντέρ) Οι θεωρίες συνωμοσίας για την αποστολή του Apollo 11 και ο ρόλος του Stanley Kubrick (Ντοκιμαντέρ) Υπάρχουν ένα σωρό θεωρίες συνωμοσίας σχετικά με την πρώτη βόλτα του ανθρώπου στη Σελήνη. Αυτή την πρώτη βόλτα και την ιστορική πρόταση του Neil Armstrong “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”, παρακολούθησαν καθηλωμένοι στις τηλεοράσεις τους πολλά εκατομμύρια κόσμου, την 20η Ιουλίου 1969. Την παρακολούθησαν πραγματικά όμως; Πώς γίνεται να «ανεμίζει» η Αμερικανική σημαία στην επιφάνεια ενός άστρου που δεν έχει ατμόσφαιρα; Πώς γίνεται το αποτύπωμα της μπότας του αστροναύτη να είναι τόσο βαθύ; Το ντοκιμαντέρ με τίτλο «Dark Side of The Moon», ξεκινά με την συνέντευξη της συζύγου του Stanley Kubrick που αποκαλύπτει μία περίεργη ιστορία: ο Stanley Kubrick χρησιμοποιήθηκε από την Προεδρία των ΗΠΑ και τη CIA για να κινηματογραφήσει στο πλατό του 2001: Οδύσσεια του διαστήματος στο Λονδίνο, μία «προσγείωση» και βόλτα του Neil Armstrong στο φεγγάρι, προκειμένου να προβληθεί στις Αμερικανικές τηλεοράσεις! Η ιστορία έχει ως αφορμή μία «άσχετη» υπόθεση. Enjoy:

When you want something green on your plate but don’t feel like salad, then this warm coconut and pancetta kale is a go-to side dish. It pairs well with any type of meat or seafood. It’s easy to make. And although kale can taste good raw with just a drizzle of lemon and olive oil, it tastes really good with crispy pancetta, creamy coconut milk, and lots of garlic. In fact, if you want to make these greens the main course and serve a small portion of protein on the side, go for it. Eating leafy greens is like taking a whole food “supplement” with naturally safe and well-balanced vitamin and mineral levels. Is your vegetable crisper is full of greens that you have good intentions to eat before they go bad? Keep reading… Mark's Daily Apple

How To Warm Up The Right Way - STRENGTH SENSEI The Three Principles for a great warm-up for strength training Some background info If there is one area where advice in strength training is more often than enough moronic , it is for warm-ups. Here is a simple rule: If the recommended warm up takes as long as the actual workout, the article was written by fully certified twatwaffle with zero real life results.
