Currently (Ebiker joke) watching a TV show... Sugar Coated (Feature Version)

Watt I see ya might watch on the web:

About this Video
How did the food industry get us to stop asking the question: is sugar toxic? It all starts with a secret PR campaign dating back to the 1970s. For forty years, Big Sugar deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world's food supply. As obesity, diabetes, and heart disease rates skyrocket, doctors are now treating the first generation of children suffering from fatty liver disease. The sugar industry is once again under siege. They dodged the bullet once. Will they do it again?
Still looking for the sequel "Big Auto" (Sugar Coated)
How did the automotive industry get us to stop asking the question: are cars toxic? It all starts with a secret PR campaign dating back to the early 1900s. For 100 years, Big Auto deflected all threats to its multi-billion dollar empire, while sweetening the world's transportation.

Reebok electric exercise bike bicycle - great condition

in Roath Park, Cardiff, UK... Only £75.00!

Ad notes:
Fab condition exercise bike with 101 functions, most of which I haven't used..

It's clean, works perfect and the only thing missing is pedal straps.

Unfortunately the wheels fell off. So As Is condition.

TTC Tranist.jpg
TTC Tranist.jpg (89.16 KiB) Viewed 640 times
Seen in a local free Transit newspaper... watt one might read online here:
http://eedition.toronto.24hrs.ca/epaper/viewer.aspx

Written by Andy Byford, CEO for a local pubic transit system... (a "biggie" transit system by many standards)...

Starts:
Some have mused recently about why the TTC deserves a transit system of the year award, not satisfied that maybe, just maybe, the TTC does a number of things quite well. Allow me, then, to enumerate the TTC’s many accomplishments over the past five years.
... goes on:
Notwithstanding numerous challenges, new vehicles have entered service, a stunning subway extension will open in December, PRESTO smartcard has been rolled out, a new signalling system will be deployed from this fall and huge progress has been made to transform our culture and our service to be customerled, more capable and more diverse.

We executed a flawless Pan Am Games transit plan, built a new world-class streetcar barn, delivered numerous accessibility programs, overhauled processes to be ever-more efficient and added a second platform at Union Station, while maintaining service at one of our busiest locations.

Thanks to our wonderful and hard-working frontline employees, the system is cleaner, information is better and long-standing quality issues have been tackled. The number of short turns — long the curse of bus and streetcar riders — has been slashed, while subway delay minutes and delay incidents have been reduced.

We fought hard for, and won, increased subsidy to add service in 2015, for which we are grateful to Mayor John Tory and city council.
Etc. etc. and ends:
As such, I am proud of our achievement and I am proud of my colleagues to whom I dedicate the award. It has given TTC staff a much-deserved lift that will inspire us to do better still as we continue our work to deliver a transit system that makes Toronto proud.
Of course, some might suggest this transit system is a HUGE FAIL. From a CEO that can't spell correctly... etc.

WORST fail to date? Currently in this town (population 6+ million), one can finance (with a thing "good credit rating") the purchase of a Canadian 500 watt continuous "power-assisted bicycle") where monthly loan payments are about HALF of a monthly Metropass "all ya can eat" transit pass.

So. No more "last mile"... always a free seat... Actually the advantages to an urban traveler are NUMEROUS. See ES thread "Reasons why the ebike is a world beater thread.":
https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewt ... =1&t=58884

But ya can still support this local transit system, so the CEO can afford spelling lessons.

(They say:)
The Wirecutter is a list of the best gadgets—like cameras and TVs and ebikes—for people who don’t want to take a lot of time figuring out what to get. It was founded in September 2011, and it became a part of The New York Times Company in October 2016. The Sweethome is our version of the Wirecutter focused on home goods like bedsheets, blenders, duct tape,ebikes and screwdrivers. Everything we choose is an award-winner, and we don’t focus on presenting you with anything but the things we love.
The Best EV Charging Stations:
http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-e ... -stations/

Begins:
We chose to ignore the millions and billions of 120VAC electric outlets out there, and after more than 50 hours researching over 70 charging stations for electric "cars" and testing five of the most promising models, we’ve concluded that the best for most owners of current electric vehicles (EVs)—Tesla owners should just buy Tesla’s own charging station—is the Siemens VersiCharge VC30GRYU.
... and then checked in to rehab.
