Comments Off on The Specialized Turbo is an Electric Bike that Can Hit a Blistering 27 MPH

Whether it’s cruising down a steep hill or whizzing past traffic with a smirk on your face, there are few riders who don’t have at least a small addiction to speed. If you really have the itch to fly down the road, you may want to check out the Specialized Turbo , and electric-assisted bike that can cruise at speeds of up to 27 mph. This is the first plug-in from the California-based company — the bike has already been rolling around Europe for a year — but US federal laws have until now deemed the bike too fast to be sold without calling it a motorcycle. The solution? A top-speed limiting gear that won’t let you break 27mph.

Comments Off on Bad Buildings Kill – Rana Plaza and the Case For Stringent Building Practices

Photo by Andrew Biraj for Reuters We’ve been closely following the Rana Plaza tragedy in Bangladesh, where over 700 people have lost their lives when an eight-story garment factory collapsed on April 24th. Rescue workers are still pulling victims from the wreckage and the death toll continues to rise. “ Fast Fashion ” and lack of corporate social responsibility certainly contributed to the disaster, but there’s also another issue at hand that is even more important – building practices. Bad buildings kill people. Without proper building codes , appropriate architecture & engineering, safe building practices and government oversight, inadequate building practices put people at risk. This incident makes it plainly obvious that the construction industry in Bangladesh is broken – and everyone involved, from the owners to the architects, engineers, planning commission, inspectors and even the municipality is to blame.
