The next time you're gasping for breath pedaling on a hill, and your buddy is gliding up it with a big grin, consider that he may be cheating with a teensy motor that slips into the frame of a bike.
The Vivax Assist is an Austrian-made electric doodad that looks like a humble, 8.6 inch-long metal rod. It hides inside the seat tube near the pedals, connected to a battery pack stashed in a saddlebag or disguised as a water bottle (seriously). When you're sick of, ya know, exercise, flick a button on the handlebar and the motor engages a crank near the gears, giving you a secret and shameful boost.
Apple will likely begin mass production of its next iPhone (iPhone 6S and 6S Plus) in July. The future iPhone will come with a touch technology called Force Touch.
Force Touch -- which senses how hard the screen is tapped -- was first used in the Apple Watch and 12-inch Retina MacBook. For example, with the Watch, pressing firmly on the screen lets you select new watch faces, control a workout, or search an address in Maps. Apple claims Force Touch “is the most significant new sensing capability since Multi‑Touch” – the tap, scroll, pinch, and swipe gestures found on MacBooks.
The usual upgrades are also expected:
* more memory

Compared to its competitors in the energy space, the renewable energy industry is young. But it is growing quickly, especially in Asia. This week the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) released a report on global employment in renewables. The report estimates both direct and indirect employment, as of 2013-2014. Large hydropower dams are excluded.
* China has about 43% of the world's renewable energy jobs, way more than any other country
* Globally, solar PV employs more people than any other renewable energy source
* Most renewable energy equipment is manufactured in Asia; the rest of the world installs and operates it
* In the US, ethanol is still the biggest renewable energy industry for jobs
* Fossil fuels employ more Americans than renewable energy, but coal employs fewer than clean electricity
Such as butterflies, birds, healthy lawns, flowers and forests. And they have a right to healthy and organic food.
We humans all over the world must, only, use renewable energy, because by the conventional extraction and Fracking our whole of habitats are being poisoned, then we can no food, grow more and the catastrophe takes its course.
Yep, women are “greener” than men. That’s led to speculation that women may view environmentalism as important to protecting their families and themselves. It’s also consistent with our own survey results:
* About 37% of women said they buy clean-energy products and services for the chance to reduce their environmental impact. This compares to just 31 percent of men.
* The same percentage of women and men—82%—said they make clean-energy purchases for the chance to save money.
You might think Millennials are the most environmentally-focused generation. Not so fast.
* 41%, GenXers (born 1965-1978) were actually the most likely to say they make clean-energy purchases to reduce their environmental impact. They edged out the 38% of Millennials (born 1979-1983).
GenXers were also more likely than Millennials to say they’ve “changed the way they live” to help fight climate change—17% to 13%.
71% of GenXers would like to install solar panels on their home at some point in the future. This compares to 66% of Millennials.
Moving is always traumatic, but moving from NYC to San Francisco is like moving from the Earth to the Moon.
Rivalry between denizens of different cities can be bitter, so let us consider the facts. According to CNN’s cost of living calculator, housing and utilities are 45% and 35% more expensive in Manhattan when compared to San Francisco, but healthcare costs 6% less. Another statistic says that life in NYC is 12% more expensive in general, although if you live in Brooklyn instead of Manhattan, it’s about the same.
