Nice work! Thanks for the info, you made it easy to understand. I just filled out CO DoR DR0021 Booklet with an online software. It looked much better typed than hand-written. I used http://pdf.ac/1jVUEk and it's very easy to use.

Re: “Remembering Quail Ridge Books Founder Nancy Olson, a Reader's Best Friend

Hi Zack,

I'm reading this again after seeing it almost 5 months ago. Our new Quail Ridge Books is open at North Hills. It is large, eclectic, and colorful. The children's section is magical and there is an upstairs that includes books, magazines, a reading nook, and a great view of the first floor. I never would have imagined 5 years ago that I would own a bookshop, especially one that was opened and lovingly kept by a rockstar like Nancy. Now I have put my stamp on it, under hers.

There are nuances of the former store there: the fireplace and comfy chairs, book club meetings, the "paperback boat," special sections that include Southern writers and NC writers, and the framed author photos in the bathrooms. Of course we have a beautiful picture of Nancy prominently placed, as she should be.

It's a different store with a different vibe. But the booksellers are the same genuinely kind people you always knew. The same great literature is shelved. We continue to present wonderful authors, poets, and town hall guests.

If you haven't already, I hope you will come in to see us. Bring your coffee in and have a seat, for as long as you like.

Sincerely,

Lisa Poole

Re: “Fast-track trade for the TPP: David Price says — No. (With an *) Plus, an afternoon update …

Trying to make some sense of the TPP. All you need to know it´s that while we are busy with Trump, Hillary and the election; they are moving forward with this Pacific Trade Treaty that is going to move more jobs to Southeast Asia. And I do not have anything against those countries, but everybody understands what more unemployment would mean for the US. Plus, it would make US laws powerless against big corporations... Yep, the fine print of TPP is not fun.

Re: “How to Navigate Busy City Streets on Two Wheels

"Helmet usage should not be elevated among implementation of infrastructural efforts to improve bicycling safety." Pretty sure I was doing the exact opposite.
In any event, I hope your tin-foil hats work well to prevent brain injuries, fellas. Glad to know our GoTriangle employees are so on top of it...

Re: “How to Navigate Busy City Streets on Two Wheels

Please see http://www.cycle-helmets.com/Elvik2011_helmet_reanalysis.pdf

Key conclusion: "When the analysis is updated by adding four new studies, the protective effects attributed to bicycle helmets are further reduced. According to the new studies, no overall effect of bicy- cle helmets could be found when injuries to head, face or neck are considered as a whole."

Also: "The findings of this study are inconsistent with other meta- analyses, in particular a Cochrane review published in 2009. However, the study inclusion criteria applied in the Cochrane review are debatable."

A final note from the article: "On balance, the evidence suggests that: (1) soft shell helmets offer less protec- tion than hard shell helmets, and (2) soft shell helmets appear to have become more common over time." From my unscientific observations, most bicyclists wearing helmets wear soft-shell helmets.

Aa 2000 meta-analysis that has been seriously questioned in the intervening 16 years is not "an excellent article on the issue." More importantly, helmet usage should not be elevated among implementation of infrastructural efforts to improve bicycling safety.

(Full disclosure: I work with Erik but not for him.)

Re: “How to Navigate Busy City Streets on Two Wheels

The degree to which helmets provide protection is indeed a point of debate, Erik. And there is consensus that helmets do create some safety problems for cyclists and, of course, that helmets are not a panacea for bike safety issues. (No one has really ever argued they are.) We need a better bike infrastructure, and we need better education among both cyclists and drivers to make the roads safer for everyone.

In the meantime, helmets do provide a necessary and helpful barrier between your skull and the street. And here's "an excellent article on the issue": http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…, which concludes: "This review included five well conducted case‐control studies and found that helmets provide a 63–88% reduction in the risk of head, brain and severe brain injury for all ages of bicyclists. Helmets were found to provide equal levels of protection for crashes involving motor vehicles (69%) and crashes from all other causes (68%). Furthermore, injuries to the upper and mid facial areas were found to be reduced by 65%, although helmets did not prevent lower facial injuries. The review authors concluded that bicycle helmets are an effective means of preventing head injury."

Suggesting that "provide virtually no actual safety benefits for cyclists" is completely irresponsible.

Signed, someone who has banged his head more than once while cycling, thankfully while wearing a helmet.

Re: “How to Navigate Busy City Streets on Two Wheels

How so? There is no consensus in the scientific community about the safety benefits of wearing a helmet while cycling. I understand that runs counter to what you've been told your whole life, but it's true.

Here's an excellent article on the issue: http://www.cnet.com/news/brain-surgeon-the…

Better yet is the video embedded in that article - start around 4:00 mark for the parts about how safe bike helmets really are: https://youtu.be/07o-TASvIxY

Re: “How to Navigate Busy City Streets on Two Wheels

Helmets provide the illusion of safety, but provide virtually no actual safety benefits for cyclists. In fact, safety outcomes would improve more for pedestrians and motorists if they wore helmets than cyclists. So if you think cyclists should wear helmets, do you also think motorists and pedestrians should too?
