Electric Scooters are Taking Over
E-Scooters are popping up all over U.S. Cities.
They are fun, easy to use and faster than walking for short trips. Bird, a scooter-sharing system that provides electric scooters available for short-term rentals, began in late 2017 in Santa Monica, California. Scooter-sharing systems, like Bird, Lime, Skip, Lyft and Jump (Uber) are in about 40 U.S. cities and more than 100 cities worldwide. These companies allow riders to locate and unlock scooters with an app. When they reach their destination, they just walk away. Scooters are simple to use and can be picked up and dropped off anywhere. Contractors, known as “chargers” later collect and charge the scooters then drop them off at easy to find locations, typically a marked street corner, in cities.
CBD: Hype or Miracle?
Over the course of several decades, cannabis products have gone from being taboo to highly sought-after wellness products. Cannabidiol (CBD) is a plant compound that has an immeasurable amount of health benefits without affecting on the mind or behavior. The stigma surrounding CBD is starting to disappear as people are beginning to see its true potential.
“Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.”
“Time is a sort of river of passing events, and strong is its current; no sooner is a thing brought to sight than it is swept by and another takes its place, and this too will be swept away.”
