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."

Ο Ιερός Προσκυνηματικός Ναός του προστάτου της Κέρκυρας, Αγίου Σπυρίδωνα, είναι από τα μεγαλύτερα προσκυνήματα στην Ελλάδα, λόγω της λάρνακας του θαυματουργού αγίου που αποθησαυρίζεται στον ναό. Η εκκλησία κτίστηκε το 1589, με τη μορφή Επτανησιακής Βασιλικής, από την κερκυραϊκή οικογένεια Βούλγαρη. Παρόλο που ο εξωτερικός της διάκοσμος είναι ιδιαίτερα λιτός, το εσωτερικό του ναού είναι πλούσιο σε διακόσμηση, με ιδιαίτερα εντυπωσιακό τέμπλο του 1864 από μάρμαρο της Πάρου. Οι αξιόλογες εικόνες του τέμπλου είναι έργα του Κερκυραίου ζωγράφου Σπύρου Προσαλέντη. Ανάμεσα στα πολλά αφιερώματα που δέχεται κάθε χρόνο ο Άγιος Σπυρίδωνας, διακρίνονται δύο μεγάλα καντήλια που αφιερώθηκαν το 1716, το έτος που γλίτωσαν οι κάτοικοι του νησιού από τους Τούρκους, με τη βοήθειά του. Η λάρνακα και το Ιερό Λείψανο του Αγίου Σπυρίδωνα Η λάρνακα, στην οποία τοποθετήθηκε το Ιερό Λείψανο του Αγίου Σπυρίδωνα, κατασκευάστηκε στη Βιέννη το 1867. Η μνήμη του Αγίου Σπυρίδωνα εορτάζεται στις 12 Δεκεμβρίου. Άγιος Σπυρίδωνας προστάτης της Κέρκυρας! Μεγάλη γιορτή για το νησί του Ιονίου! (PHOTOS) Άγιος Σπυρίδωνας προστάτης της Κέρκυρας!

Neftalie Williams: Skateboarding Is a 'Tool for Cultural Diplomacy' Skateboarding involves riding and performing tricks on a small oval board attached to four wheels. It can be considered a recreational activity, an art form or a method of transportation. Neftalie Williams says skateboarding is his passion. “When I'm skateboarding, I feel free. As a young adult, Williams gained a larger view on skateboarding. “Right when I got to be about 20 years old, that's when I decided that not only was skateboarding important, but it's something that I should really, really be involved in --- not just working on being an amateur sponsor skater, but that skateboarding meant more to more people and it was a way to sort of connect communities everywhere. "So, for me, I started thinking about skating in a broader context.

‘What is wrong with your country?’: Trump’s travel ban could thwart sports diplomacy, jeopardize U.S. Olympic bid ‘What is wrong with your country?’: Trump’s travel ban could thwart sports diplomacy, jeopardize U.S. Olympic bid President Donald Trump’s ban on visitors from seven Muslim nations could have a wide impact on international sports, including jeopardizing a warm relationship between the United States and Iran in wrestling competitions and threatening the chances of Los Angeles hosting the 2024 Summer Olympics and of the United States securing soccer’s 2026 World Cup. On Saturday, sports officials struggled to understand the implications of Trump’s executive order, including the question of whether athletes from the prohibited nations could enter the United States to compete, especially in the initial 90-day period of the ban. “We are working closely with the administration to understand the new rules and how we best navigate them as it pertains to visiting athletes,” Patrick Sandusky, a spokesman for the U.S. Olympic Committee, said in an email. At least one International Olympic Committee delegate criticized Trump’s decision. Jae C. Olympic distance champ Mo Farah condemns Trump's travel ban

Manchester United Plotting Shock Move For Mesut Ozil Reuters / Hannah McKay Manchester United seem to be plotting a shock move for Arsenal star man Mesut Ozil, according to reports in England. After having calmed their pursuit of Atletico Madrid ace Antoine Griezmann, the Red Devils are now looking for alternatives that will help them strengthen their attack. Initial reports claimed Jose Mourinho was interested in luring Alexis Sanchez to Old Trafford, but the Portuguese has now expressed interest in signing Mesut Ozil as well, as per Manchester Evening News. Mourinho managed the German playmaker during their time together at Real Madrid, which make this reunion much more possible. And with Wayne Rooney’s future at Manchester United as insecure as ever, Jose is believed to be prioritising signing Ozil – the player he once described as ‘the best number 10 in the world’.

Reuters / John Sibley Manchester United’s star center-back Eric Bailly has revealed that Manchester City made a last-ditch attempt to sign him in the summer. The Ivory Coast international has been hugely impressive since joining the Red Devils, and many expect the 22-year-old to develop into one of the best defenders in the world. But as of now, the youngster’s enormous talent is there for everyone to see, which is precisely why Manchester United had to fight a host of other clubs – including inter-city rivals Manchester City – to secure his services. Bailly recently spoke about City’s interest in him, by stating (via The Sun): “Manchester were interested in me, but it was Manchester United who contacted me directly – in the form of Jose Mourinho himself. “I was at a good Spanish club in Villarreal, but when a team as prestigious as Manchester United makes you an offer it is hard to say no.

Chelsea Hoping To Beat Manchester United For Antoine Griezmann Signing REUTERS/Sergio Perez Manchester United will have to battle it out with Chelsea this summer for the signature of Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann, according to the Sun. Because of his £86m release clause, anyone who matches the figure can talk to the French attacker, and Antonio Conte reportedly wants to use his bottomless pit of money to sign the La Liga hotshot. Jose Mourinho and Manchester United have long had Griezmann as their top priority target, and strongly believe they are currently leading the race. United’s interest is longstanding, and if they had any positive transfer business sense they should have been in contact with him for two seasons to start persuading him to make the move.

For over a year, I worked as a beauty editor, writing and researching about the products, trends, and people that make us want to look a certain way. And as research for many of the stories I wrote, I consulted with dermatologists, plastic surgeons, makeup artists, aestheticians, and more trying to answer a simple question—how can I make myself more conventionally attractive? “Beauty is confidence,” they’d always say, prefacing the real answer. Inevitably, these experts would eventually tell me that you feel more confident, and thus more beautiful, when you look blemish- and wrinkle-free. (Pending on the product they were promoting, this could also incorporate being tanner, or more contoured, or thinner, or paler, or less made up, or curvier, etc.) Regardless of respondents’ different aesthetic tastes, everyone seemed to agree—younger is more beautiful. Naturally, the problem here is the premise. “We don’t want human opinion,” says biotechnologist Dr. Listing image by Beauty.AI When beauty is in the eye of the (robo)beholder | Ars Technica UK
Researchers have overcome one of the major stumbling blocks in artificial intelligence with a program that can learn one task after another using skills it acquires on the way. Developed by Google’s AI company, DeepMind, the program has taken on a range of different tasks and performed almost as well as a human. Crucially, and uniquely, the AI does not forget how it solved past problems, and uses the knowledge to tackle new ones. The AI is not capable of the general intelligence that humans draw on when they are faced with new challenges; its use of past lessons is more limited. But the work shows a way around a problem that had to be solved if researchers are ever to build so-called artificial general intelligence (AGI) machines that match human intelligence. “If we’re going to have computer programs that are more intelligent and more useful, then they will have to have this ability to learn sequentially,” said James Kirkpatrick at DeepMind.
