LA Sucks For Cycling | America’s Hidden Bike Riding Paradise

– The thing I hear a lot is LA sucks for riding, but the truth is, is that after digging in quite a bit, I found out that LA might not actually stink for riding that much, because Saxo Bank, currently Geraint Thomas, we’ve even heard Peter Sagan, back in the day, Lance Armstrong, have all called this place home to pre-season training camps. So, I’ve put together, with some help from a lot of friends, a perfect day out…

The Future of America

The Future of America

The United States is going through two big demographic transformations: our population is becoming non-white, and it’s aging in record numbers. This is a profile of Future America, based on the most comprehensive survey ever of its kind by the Pew Research Center. This is America’s age pyramid.

It is also a perversion of the original idea of the Modern Olympics as a promotion of…

Asian Americans Respond To Racist Comments

Asian Americans Respond To Racist Comments

– It makes you feel really, really, really bad about yourself, especially when you don’t have anything to feel bad about. (“Unify”) – There are people that internalize the message that Asian people that don’t belong somewhere, then tell other Asian Americans that their dreams are stupid. – It’s less about, I think, big moments and more about little moments, in which people don’t realize that they’re doing or saying something that points a big metaphorical finger at your face….
