I was made aware of this article from a private share from someone that lives in Groningen.

It will be interesting to see how the Parisian plan to ban much of the auto traffic in the center of Paris goes. Since Paris is a much bigger city than Groningen, if it works we can do it anywhere , and should.


Motorists woke up one mid-70s morning to find new one-way streets made direct crosstown journeys impossible by car. Forty years later Groningen boasts two-thirds of all trips made by bike … and the cleanest air of any big Dutch city

Cataracts treatment has been, until now, nothing less than surgery. Not anymore! Scientists have developed an eye drop that has the ability to shrink down and dissolve them.
Researchers in the US have developed a new drug that can be delivered directly into the eye via an eye dropper to shrink down and dissolve cataracts - the leading cause of blindness in humans. While the effects have yet to be tested on humans, the...

Some sense from Paris!

Refreshing! I almost always go thru those lights. In cases where there are a lot of cars and the drivers are glaring at me, I just hop up on the curb and take it that way. The sidewalks are usually empty anyway. Any time I can either pull out ahead or drop behind a pack of cars, I'll take that opportunity. If we're not close together, they can't run over me.

Story
Introduction
I was born on a small, unremarkable, water and rock world occupying the third orbit out from an unremarkable yellow, main sequence star. I live and continue to endure despite the universe's best efforts.

At least that's the story until I can think of something more enlightening.
