Kawasaki J Concept Three-Wheeled Motorcycle Enlarge By now, well into the second century of automobility, you’d think that we’d be using something better than just yesterday’s bikes today. It isn’t just what critics of motorcycle engineering claim as the stultifying effect of motorcyclist conservatism, but because turning by leaning is so natural to us, as I try to explain in my 2008 book, Bodies in Motion: Evolution and Experience in Motorcycling. Our evolution has left us with a preference for the sensorium of the leaning experience, which confronts visionary engineers with a set of intractable design problems. How to meet the demand for a revolutionary or evolutionary machine that both turns by leaning and also is a light, narrow machine to make the rider go fast, look good, and feel great?

How to Write a Thank You Note for Any Occasion (With 3 Examples You Can Use) From an early age, my mom instilled in me the importance of writing thank you notes.

And what if those devices could all communicate, send you information, and take your commands? It's not science fiction; it's the Internet of Things (IoT), and it's a key component of home automation. Home automation is what it sounds like: automating the ability to control items around the house—from window shades to pet feeders—with a simple push of a button (or a voice command).
Meta-analysis A meta-analysis is a statistical analysis that combines the results of multiple scientific studies. The basic tenet behind meta-analyses is that there is a common truth behind all conceptually similar scientific studies, but which has been measured with a certain error within individual studies. The aim then is to use approaches from statistics to derive a pooled estimate closest to the unknown common truth based on how this error is perceived.
