I've just taken on a job that will require a twice-weekly, 14-kilometer ride. That's nothing compared with what many of you ride, but it should help to keep me in shape.
I'll have a look around and see if I can find some. My method, whatever kind of oats I'm cooking, is to pour boiling water over a bowl of about 70% oats, 30% oat bran and a handful of dried...
I have a Scottish friend. Perhaps I should ask him.
Samuel Johnson: “Oats. A grain, which in England is generally given to horses, but in Scotland supports the people.”
Okay, got it. I was buying big boxes of Quaker oats at Costco, but now they only offer rolled oats, which seem thinner and more processed to me, although they are 100% oats, no additives. What kind...
Meanwhile, the United States falls behind... Nigeria. :lol:
Nigeria?s First Ever High-Speed Rail Is Finally Here - How Nigeria
I've seen that video, and it really makes me want to visit Groningen and check out what they're up to first-hand. I have no doubt it would work elsewhere if people had the same will to reduce car...
What's the diff?
I'm simply agreeing with Dahon Steve's assertion that part of the reason young people are buying fewer cars is that they aren't as heavily influenced by television advertising as previous generations...
I was having dinner with friends the other evening, and one of the guests made a familiar statement. "I am not influenced by advertising," she said.
For those of us in marketing, this is a...
I hadn't thought about the fact that they're seeing fewer car ads, but now that you've pointed it out, it makes a lot of sense. Anyone who's gone to university in recent years is also likely to be up...
I agree that some of us are less susceptible to advertising than others, but some in this thread are trying to make the case that adverts for cars are ineffective, which is ridiculous, in my opinion.
Why do you think corporations spend billions of dollars on marketing if it isn't effective?
Why wait for a collapse when there are so many things that need to be done now as we move out of the fossil fuel age, such as building cycling infrastucture, building new streetcar, underground, ...
You need to take a course in Marketing 101. Here's a case study for you.
Creating Need: Part of the Marketing Jobby Vito Rispo...
I found this information about your fair city. You have an underground with 28 stations, buses, trolleybuses and streetcars that have been in operation for over a century. Not bad!
You're lucky to still have them. I hope the people of your city will let the politicians know that those streetcars are a treasure worth repairing and keeping.
Right! The automobile industry is throwing away all of those billions on ads that have no effect whatsoever on sales. You two ought to apply for positions as executives with one of the big car...
I'm glad we don't have ice around here. The biggest danger is leaves, especially when they're wet. I've seen more than one cyclist come a cropper on their account.
Where do you live? That certainly hasn't been my experience, and I've lived in quite a few cities in the United States abroad.
When was that? Back in '60s? :roflmao2::50:
Did you miss the rest of the paragraph you snipped that quotation from, the part where Steve explains very clearly why he thinks watching TV and "needing" a car are related?
I didn't ask you.
Good for you, but some of us like carfree living. That's why we come to this forum, to discuss its ins and outs.
Do you see any problems associated with millions of people driving SUVs?
