When added to gene therapy, plant-based compound may enable faster, more effective treatments

Happy Hour (23 Photos)

The bell rings, the whistle blows, it`s 5 o`clock somewhere...now it`s YOUR time. Time to loosen the tie, grab an icy cold one or adult beverage on the rocks. You worked hard today (or pretended to) so you deserve a break-reward yourself with thoughts of that classic car you are working for, that beautiful woman waiting for you, that special one you can`t wait to meet one day. Go ahead, jump on that bike, pour that beer, kick back and turn the game on. Grab your buddies to meet for poker, pool, cigars and whiskey. Or jump in the truck and get away from it all lost in the log cabin in the woods. It`s time to make you happy. The post Happy Hour (23 Photos) appeared first on Suburban Men .

The Death of Cars Was Greatly Exaggerated

Personal car ownership in the US has increased in the past 10 years, even in the frenzied urban places where Uber and car-share have become verbs. From a report: According to research from former New York City transportation official Bruce Schaller, the number of vehicles has grown faster than the population in some of the cities where ride-hail is most popular: Boston, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago. Moreover, some services targeted to the aspirationally or actually car-free have hit the skids. Car2Go, the car-sharing company now jointly owned by Daimler and BMW, said earlier this month it would pull out of half of the North American cities where it operates. (The company, which allows users to pick up and drop off cars at regular street parking spaces, says it will focus its firepower on its remaining North American cities: New York, Montreal, Seattle, Vancouver, and Washington.) BMW-owned ReachNow, a wide-ranging experiment in ride hailing and car rental, folded in the US this summer. The scooter-share folks at Lime last month killed their experimental LimePod car-share service in Seattle. General Motors wound down its Maven car-sharing service in eight of its 17 North American cities this summer. Uber and Lyft, now public companies, are losing gobs of money, and the services` most popular times are Friday evenings, which seems to indicate less that people are ditching their personal cars than ditching their personal cars while drinking.
