Dodging the Roadkill: Winter Helps Me Appreciate Better Weather

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – As I write this post, it’s currently 3 degrees outside.  The wind chill is -3.  Now, I realize there are many of you who suffer through much colder temperatures and more snow and ice, but here in Middle Tennessee, we southerners just ain’t built for this. 

For bikers, this the time of year we all dread.  Having to park the motorcycle, winterize it, or whatever we need to do while we suffer through the frozen “hell” of limited riding opportunities.

I think the beauty of being a biker is that we can mount up and take off anytime we damn well please, but old man winter reminds us, “no you can’t.”

Winter.

Winter.

Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Neighborhood-level socioeconomic factors in low-income areas may significantly predict heart failure risk beyond individual health factors and socioeconomic status, according to new research in Circulation: Cardiovascular Quality and Outcomes, an American Heart Association journal.

The study compared census tract data on socioeconomic deprivation – a clustering of neighborhood-level variables of wealth, education, occupation and housing patterns – and heart failure rates among 27,078 middle-aged whites and African-Americans from the Southeastern states.

NASA’s Cassini Spacecraft data reveals Saturn’s moon Titan has Sea Level elevation

 

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA –  Saturn’s moon Titan may be nearly a billion miles away from Earth, but a recently published paper based on data from NASA’s Cassini spacecraft reveals a new way this distant world and our own are eerily similar. Just as the surface of oceans on Earth lies at an average elevation that we call “sea level,” Titan’s seas also lie at an average elevation.

This is the latest finding that shows remarkable similarities between Earth and Titan, the only other world we know of in our solar system that has stable liquid on its surface.

Ligeia Mare, shown in here in data obtained by NASA's Cassini spacecraft, is the second largest known body of liquid on Saturn's moon Titan. It is filled with liquid hydrocarbons, such as ethane and methane, and is one of the many seas and lakes that bejewel Titan's north polar region. (NASA/JPL-Caltech/ASI/Cornell)
