I wonder how this affects breweries like +Stone Brewing Co., +Sierra Nevada, and +LagunitasBeer . I mean, water being a pretty important ingredient in beer, after all...
Gov. Jerry Brown , standing on a patch of brown grass in the Sierra Nevada that is usually covered with several feet of snow at this time of year, ;on Wednesday announced the first mandatory water restrictions in California history.

Uh. There is no debate here.
Bearing the scars of its backstage drama, Ridley Scott's sci-fi is confused and confusing.

I always just leave my old helmet hanging off my bike. What kind of punk steals a helmet...?
 
Using a bicycle to get around has its advantages: it takes up far less space than a car (and costs less), there’s no monthly fuel charges or insurance premiums, and it burns a bunch of calories. The downside is that it can’t be locked like a car, and so…

good point.
the "selective anecdote" is common in society.
Any paramedic must have seen countless head injuries to motorists and pedestrians.
No doubt some of those could also have been reduced by helmet use.
Last time I banged my head, i tripped while running - but no-one seems to be suggesting helmets for joggers ...
but my main point is that many cycling helmets are so poor as to be "magic hats" anyway.

For all your commuting needs.
 
Trefecta has introduced a new electric bicycle that is unlike any e-bike you’ve seen — it has a no-nonsense industrial design, meets mil-spec standards, and can hit a top speed of 40MPH, eclipsing many scooters on the market. It’s the type of bicycle…

... doesn't seem to address my need to get fitter ...
I suppose I could push an e-bike to work, or carry it, maybe.
So it looks like I'll be sticking with "self-powered"!

I visited recently with my brother-in-law after a search for craft brew taps in downtown Minneapolis returned this bar. We walked right in at about 8:15 on a Friday night (after a seven-minute walk from the Westin) and sat at the bar. The restaurant (capacity: 164) was full but not crowded, and there was a nice mix patrons. NCAA basketball played on the couple flat screens above the bar, but they weren't intrusive. Noise level was just right; my companion and I could converse just fine but couldn't make out the conversation at the table directly behind us. The physical beer menu, presented on a single, double-sided page, was easy to navigate and informative, and the beers on tap the night I visited were a great sample of local and regional beers along with some *really* great brews from both coasts. The bartenders were friendly and knowledgeable, and their service was perfect. For food, I ordered a "Triple" of pork meatballs with mushroom sauce and a side of fries ($9). It's conceivable, I suppose, that there's more perfect bar food out there somewhere, but you'd have to fight this meal to prove it. Like the beer menu, the food menu is concise and easy to understand. The evening's crowning glory was overhearing the increasingly boisterous, increasingly drunken rant by the defensive psychology graduate three stools down who clearly felt that he'd been unfairly stigmatized over the years due to the relative worthlessness of his degree. As an English major, I could relate, but the glass full of Great Lakes Alchemy Hour in front of me made it impossible to wallow in self pity for even a moment.

I've eaten every pizza available in Iowa City at one time or another over the course of the last 35 years, and the best Chicago-style pie in town is the Greek veggie from Wig & Pen East. The shop is nothing to look at, but, then, it's carryout only. My order is always ready on time, and the guys who work there are friendly. What's more, their online ordering site actually works! Highly recommended.
