Yeah... NYC cyclists don't follow these laws, especially the traffic law one. Police don't even bother enforcing them.

• Never ride on the sidewalk. If you get off your bike because of nerves, walk it until you find another bike lane to ride in.
• Obey all traffic laws. That means stop at red lights, follow turn signals andnever ride the wrong way on a one-way street.
We asked experts for advice for the wary potential cyclist, for whom the idea of riding a bike is both tempting and anxiety-inducing.

I like Real Time. Bill Maher is sometimes hard to agree with, but he reasons his arguments, and therefore can be tolerated. He's intelligent and well-informed, which makes his brashness likable, not annoying. The best part about his show is the guests; he always has an ensemble of interesting guests who often disagree with Maher, which leads to an interesting live debate.
On a recent Friday afternoon in a bungalow on the CBS Television City lot, Bill Maher was leading a crowded meeting of writers and producers. In a few hours his weekly show "Real Time" would go live, and the cramped room — wall decorations: ironically displayed Southern-pride flag, whimsical portrait of Maher and a dog — filled with nervous energy.

Home-schooled. Alabama.

Gaither fired 12 shots at the intruder as he was making his escape through the front lawn. The first 11 bullets missed—presumably flying wildly into the suburban street as neighbors dove for cover and cowered in fear—but the final shot was true.

"I shot through the hamper he was carrying," Gaither, who sounds vaguely terrifying, told the local news crew. "It was a full metal jacket bullet. It went straight through the back of his leg. He started crying like a little baby."

...this is a Joe McCarthy moment. People will be judged by where they stood at this time. Those who walked with Trump will be tainted forever after for the degradation of standards and the general election slaughter.
It’s time to step back, take the long view and begin healing the pain that the campaign has illuminated.

The South Korean government has yet to acknowledge the military's actions during the Vietnam War, but civilian groups are actively seeking ways to reconcile with the nation's past.

Uh-oh.
Top Berlin officials are becoming less inclined to unconditionally support Israel. With the two-state solution increasingly unlikely, there is concern that Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is "instrumentalizing" Germany's friendship.

"Whether it's a Sikh man on a Greyhound bus, or an Arabic speaker on a Southwest airplane, the xenophobic fear and bigotry in our country is out of control," Gurjot Kaur, senior staff attorney at The Sikh Coalition, told NBC News. "By filing this complaint, we hope to bring attention to the crisis facing minority communities today. The list of things brown people can't do on public transportation is growing — we can't get a can of Diet Coke, we can't switch seats on a bus or a plane, we can't speak in a language other than English, really we can't be human beings."
Singh was detained for approximately 30 hours before being cleared of all allegations of wrongdoing.

Wow.

In the end, Chen and another Microsoft programmer couldn’t figure out how the game worked just from looking through the source code. And with no help being offered from comments or documentation, they had to give up and carry on porting other things due to time constraints.

No one’s fears are likely to be allayed by this speech, which was clearly worked up by his new campaign advisers and read from a teleprompter. It did not exhibit much grasp of the complexity of the world, understanding of the balance or exercise of power, or even a careful reading of history.

I mean... what did you expect?
In his first formal foreign policy speech, Mr. Trump says he would tell global allies and foes that it’s his way or the highway.

Research Tech, Miniature Painter, Gadget Enthusiast, Anime Watcher, PC Gamer.
Introduction
I'm a research technician in the U.S. preparing to go to medical school. On the web, I often go by the screen name kkendd. Please don't ask what that means; it really is just a random sequence of letters that I came up with many years ago during the dial-up era when I began to form an online presence, and is most definitely NOT related to the classic video game KKND.

I enjoy modelling and painting 28mm-scale miniatures, and lately have been working on Games Workshop's Warhammer 40,000 series miniatures.

I also am a gadget enthusiast, and am nerdy enough to enjoy customizing them. I try to keep up with the latest tech news. I use a custom built desktop, built by me.

I love traveling, although I have little time to go anywhere these days.

Lastly, I make sure I don't lose my Asian-ness by watching the latest Japanese anime.

I'm fluent in English and Korean, and can manage to communicate in the most basic way in Japanese.

I run a Twitter account in Korean (@kkendd). My Google+, on the other hand, will almost exclusively be in English.
Bragging rights
I was on a local newspaper when I was in highschool; My painted miniature was presented on the BBC; I graduated from the University of Notre Dame; I have a Master's Degree in science.

It's the famous Korean pork belly (samgyupsal), but with a secret sweet and spicy seasoning. It's so good I couldn't stop eating. Have the meat with the complimentary salad, and its vinegary taste will blend with the seasoning to form something even better. If you still want something spicy, have a bowl of makguksoo, cold buckwheat noodles, afterwards. It'll wash down the meat nicely. The raw, seasoned meat can also be ordered to go, so you can grill them yourself at home!

Don't let the sketchy entrance fool you. I had some of the freshest, tastiest eel here. You can order them marinated or plain (salted). The marinated eel is good too, but the plain is the way to go. Take a bite of the crispy grillled plain eel with some onions; it's delicious.

The signature Apple Pancake is huge! I went alone for a brunch, and the puffy pancake really is for two people. The apple & cinnamon combination is fairly standard, but the pancake is so smooth that it melts in your mouth. The orange juice is fresh squeezed and delicious. I wanted to try their egg dishes too, but it was simply impossible after the giant pancake. The coffee is forgettable, but still goes well with the pancake.

Before I start, I must state that I know nothing about cats, but I love them nonetheless. The Cat Cafe is a cafe that has adoptable cats. It's the "adoptable cats" part that I have a problem with. I do believe the intention is good, but for me, I was expecting to enjoy a relaxing time with playful cats. However, I felt that most cats were on edge because the cafe wasn't their home. Many of them didn't want to be bothered, and a few even seemed nervous/hostile. I stress again that I know nothing about cats, but I would think that cats would be a little more friendly if this place was their permanent home. As a customer, I expected the experience to be similar to that of visiting a house with friendly cats, not that of visiting an animal shelter with coffee. Just to avoid any misunderstandings, I do support animal adoption; I just didn't think that's what the Cafe was about.

Went to Puesto for a business lunch and had tacos. Puesto has delicious guacamole and chips for appetizer, and had a variety of fun, tasty tacos. I had the tuna taco, lobster taco, and cactus taco. All three were very good. The atmosphere is also very nice. Puesto fully utilizes the fantastic San Diego weather and provide a semi-indoor environment that is just perfect. I would recommend Puesto.
