Dodging the Roadkill: My Harley-Davidson Ultra-Limited

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve been riding since January 2016.  My first bike was a 2016 Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special.  

I LOVED that bike.  I put 32,000 miles on it.  

I took it to Texas, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky and all throughout Tennessee.  I had a Stage 1 kit on it and kept it serviced.  It was a magnificent bike.

In 2017, with all the traveling I do, I traded for the 2017 Ultra-Limited.  It offered the new Milwaukee Eight engine, had more storage, heated grips and updated technology.  I’ve put 24,000 miles on it so far.

Instant Peay Play - APSU SportsClarksville, TN – There’s an old saying that goes ‘it’s not how you start, but how you finish’ and that adage is true almost without exception … but it doesn’t hurt to get off to a good start either.

Just ask the Austin Peay State University’s volleyball and soccer teams who have both gotten off to sparking 3-1 starts to begin their respective seasons.

The volleyball team came out blazing this past weekend in their own Culvers Governors Challenge winning their first three matches, including a five-set victory over nationally-ranked #19 Missouri, along with wins versus Missouri-Kansas City and Marshall before falling in their final match of the weekend to preseason number two pick in The Missouri Valley Conference University of Northern Iowa.

American Heart Association reports Air pollution linked to Cardiovascular Disease; Air Purifiers may lessen impact

 

Circulation Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – Exposure to high levels of air pollution increased stress hormone levels and negative metabolic changes in otherwise healthy, young adults in a recent study conducted in China. Air purifiers appeared to lessen the negative effects, according to new research published in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

Researchers focused on fine particulate matter (PM2.5) – a component of air pollution emitted from vehicles, factories, power plants, fires and smoking – because many studies have suggested this type of major air pollutant might lead to cardiovascular and metabolic health consequences, according to Haidong Kan, M.D., Ph.D., study author and professor of environmental health sciences at Fudan University in Shanghai, China.

Negative effects of pollution exposure decreased after using indoor air purifiers over a 9-day period.
