Dodging the Roadkill: When It’s Time To Quit

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – We all started riding for a reason.  It only stands to reason that we’ll all quit for a reason. Whether it from an accident, old age, or we just don’t want to keep doing it. 

I was involved in a discussion the other day about when it’s time to quit riding.  The discussion began with someone commenting on how much more dangerous it is to ride than it used to be.  That’s a no brainer.  The cell phone has been a deadly game changer. 

The guys who were a part of this discussion were riders and former riders.  The ones who had quit had different reasons for stopping.  One, had just had a baby and felt it was time for him to stop the “risky business” of motorcycles.  The other had been in an accident and just couldn’t get back on it anymore.

NASA’s Van Allen Probes discover human made Barrier around the Earth

 

Written by Mara Johnson-Groh
NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD – Humans have long been shaping Earth’s landscape, but now scientists know we can shape our near-space environment as well. A certain type of communications — very low frequency, or VLF, radio communications — have been found to interact with particles in space, affecting how and where they move.

At times, these interactions can create a barrier around Earth against natural high energy particle radiation in space. These results, part of a comprehensive paper on human-induced space weather, were recently published in Space Science Reviews.

My Two Cents: How a Motorcycle pulled me out of Depression

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I spent my career in the spotlight.  Forty years in broadcasting.  The last eighteen years as the owner of a radio station, and the host of a morning talk show.  I was right in the middle of everything.

Over the course of my career, I “hob-knobbed” with the rich and famous.  Rock stars, politicians, entertainers and more.  There was nobody I couldn’t hang out with. There wasn’t a politician or public official I couldn’t interview.

Salon 615: It’s All About “The Voice”

 

Sandee Gertz - Author/Writer Nashville, TN – I’ve discovered another benefit of urban living in Downtown, Nashville: very cool neighbors.  Of course there are musicians and songwriters everywhere, and so when I passed my neighbor’s door and often heard him belting out classic rock tunes, I took him to be a touring musician who fronted a band.

I don’t know if what sealed that estimation was helped by the fact that he had long rocker-worthy hair, dressed in jeans and a T-shirt most days, and had this distinctively mellow yet baritone voice when he spoke going up and down on the elevator.
