May is National Bike Month

May 01, 2015

May is National Bike Month, a month-long event trying to get couch potatoes outside, cars off the roads and subway trains empty. It encourages everyone to get back onto their bicycles to enjoy riding a bike as often as they can during the month (and hopefully longer). May is the beginning of the summer and warm weather, so why not start right away and enjoy that sunshine!

Evening Out the Environment

Bike month helps promote how everyone can pitch in to help the environment. Even if you’re biking to school, you are helping bring down the pollution that is obviously having dramatic effects on the world. Air pollution is the most common form of pollution and by getting your family to stop driving and start riding a bike, you can do your part in helping the World improve the air quality.

Count Down those Calories

Cycling isn’t just good for the environment it’s good for you too. Riding a bicycle burns calories and helps keep you in shape. Not only does it improve your physical health, but also your mental state of mind. Knowing that you are doing something good for you and the environment can really help you be a happy person.

Share the Sunny Summer

So get into that shed, and take out that rusty bike. Slap a nice coat of blue paint on it. Load up your iTunes with a bunch of songs. Grab a group of friends to bike-pool to school. Set-up a bicycle date with the boy you have a crush on. Whether you’re a kid learning with training wheels, a future sponsored BMX trickster, or just a normal fun-in-the-sun-child, get on your bike and ride this May.

On a "normal" person, Polygraphs have a 70%-90% success rate. Now, the problem is that a lot of people aren't "normal". Some people are naturally anxious or have an anxiety disorder, which can mess up the results. Obese people often tend to sweat more, which will give the sensors bad readings.  So, is it a good tool for finding the truth? In certain circumstances, yes. Is it enough to convict someone of a crime? No.  ^^This There are so many variables, it's hard to make sure polygraphs are working to model standards.

wow this topic is rarely spoken, thanks for sharing it!! [s:p/zxl] 8) 8) Thank you for reading! I think as days go by it gets more and more talked about, but I don't think there can ever be enough said, especially about positive strategies. It seems like we tend to dwell on the worst and not the solution sometimes. Not to mention I don't think there's anything inherently bad about these things.

Ok so some things about my depression are like i found out i had it when i was 10. I might of had it before then but Idk. But like is a good thing i joined kw cause that's how my friend on here like figured out that i have depression and basically made me tell my mom and dad. And like also i kinda wanted to die and stuff and then later i kinda wanted to kill my self. And hurt my self. I kinda did a little bit but like not that much. And so like i had to do this weird therapy that didn't work. And then it kept getting worse and stuff and then like i went to the doctor and got some medicine but like they didn't give me any for almost a year probably until i was closer to 12. But the first one they tried made me like wake up sometimes and basically be really anxious like freaking out so much that i thought i might hurt myself or kinda other people or do things like run away. But it kinda helped the depression during the day and helped me to sleep sometimes better but like also i stopped wanting to do anything. So then i got a different one but it made me dizzy as soon as i tried it basically and so like after 3 days maybe then I spotted. But then i had to wait for them to get out of my system. After that i starred like regular therapy where you talk to the therapist. Like people told me it was bad so i really didn't want to go for a long time, but i went and it was kind of fun i guess like i could say anything and he wouldn't like be mad about me saying it or anything like he didn't judge and stuff. So i did that for a while like 2 or 3 months and i was feeling a lot better from that and some off the things we did. But like since my dad got a new job it has different insurance so i have to switch but we're just waiting to see like if i need to right now Thank you so much for sharing? You're really brave to talk about that, and I know that sharing your story is going to help somebody else. Thank you. :)
