Bicycle Superhighway - what's the speed limit? :)
London Mayor Boris Johnson will change some of London's busiest roads and intersections, in a few cases banning all traffic except cyclists from making turns.

Hey guys, I just finished a list of resources for the weekend bike mechanic. This should be really valuable for the people working on their bikes in the middle of the night when their smart friends are sleeping.

This proposed California bicycle law - that all adults must wear bike helmets - could put off many current and potential riders.. Of course, I ALWAYS wear a helmet, but many choose not to. +Richard Masoner
Yesterday, Senator Carol Liu (D-La Cañada Flintridge) introduced a bill in the California legislature that would require all bicycle riders, including adults, to wear a helmet, and to wear reflective clothing at night. Senator Liu has been an ally for active transportation and bicycling, ...

digital identify theft - terrifying. +Alan Smith  this graph you shared really lays it out.
 
Announced TODAY: Anthem Insurance data breach exposes 80 million records... name, birthday, SSN, address, and even medical file information.
It's not a matter of "if", it's a matter of WHEN identity theft hits your family. If you don't have (specifically) LegalShield with Identity Theft Shield when it happens...it could cost you dearly. Ask me what I use to protect my family.

Rebecca Stark offers a wonderful blend of fun and professionalism while getting your portraits done. In my case, I wanted a professional headshot for business to use on my social media networks. She took a number of fabulous photos onsite in her studio, then quickly offered me a selection to choose from and touched up ones I liked best. Rebecca Stark Photography is an excellent and reasonably priced service.

Gutter Patrol and Window Shine came to my home for spring window cleaning for the first time in June 2013. I am very pleased with work itself; windows are gloriously clean. Clean and sparkly! Great workers. Plus, I appreciated the clear communications about price estimate, scheduling and the degree of professionalism. I will hire them again. Honestly, hadn't realized how much of a difference clean windows make. What a boost!
