Best Biking Cities Listed for World Bicycle Day June 3


LawnStarter Lists Best Biking Cities Listed for World Bicycle Day June 3

World Bicycle Day is on June 3, so Lawn Starter ranked the 200 biggest U.S. cities based on 18 key indicators of a bike-friendly lifestyle. 

Among the factors they looked at are the length of bike lanes, the share of workers who bike to work, and access to bike stores and repair shops. LawnStarter also considered the air quality, weather, and availability of biking clubs in each city.

Check out the 10 best (and worst) cities for two-wheelers below, followed by some highlights and lowlights from their report.

196Montgomery, AL
197Mobile, AL
198Newport News, VA
199Jackson, MS
200Baton Rouge, LA

Highlights and Lowlights:

  • Tennessee Lowlights: When it comes to finding a nice place to bike, pedal toward the sunset. Cities from all over the Western U.S. dominate the top of the LawnStarter ranking. How does Tennessee compare? Like many southern cities, Tennessee towns did not do well in much of the ranking. Knoxville and Clarksville are in the bottom 5 cities listed with the lowest overall biking scores. Memphis is among the cities listed with the fewest biking lanes, and Clarksville is at the bottom of the list of share of workers who bike to work. Perhaps one reason is that with a major military base located in the relatively small city of CLarksville, there isn't much need to bike to work. LawnStarter points to heat and high humidity as factors in why the South did poorly overall in rankings.

  • Tennessee Honors: Nashville takes top honors when it comes to the fewest number of biking fatalities. Maybe it is the warm, humid weather keeping bikers off the streets, or the fact Nashville has fewer places to bike than West Coast cities, or maybe folks are just more careful here. And Knoxville is near the top of the list for roads in excellent repair.

Maybe it's time for our southern cities to invest in some shady sidewalks for bikers and hikers. The South typically does poorly in obesity surveys, Maybe more biking opportunities would alleviate some of our southern obesity and lead to more overall fitness for Southerners.

Pfizer CEO tells CNBC third COVID vaccine dose likely needed within 12 months

Pfizer tells people if you got their shot, you will need a THIRD vaccination within 12 months. Then annual shots.

During an event with CVS Health, Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla told CNBC's Bertha Coombs people will 'likely' need a third dose of a Covid-19 vaccine within 12 months of getting the first two vaccinations.
“It is extremely important to suppress the pool of people that can be susceptible to the virus,” Bourla said. 
Read the article atPfizer CEO says third Covid vaccine dose likely needed within 12 months.

Since 1.4% of unvaccinated people die of COVID and 1.23% of people who get vaccinated and who still catch COVID die of coronavirus, how effective are these vaccinations, really?

This announcement came as no surprise after a new CDC report announced that almost 6,000 people got infected with COVID after getting vaccinated, and 7% of them were hospitalized with Coronairus after getting the vaccine. At least 74 of them have died of Coronavirus after getting a COVID vaccination, or 1.23%.

Research done by Worldometer indicates that 1.4% of unvaccinated people infected with SARS-CoV-2 die, while 98.6% recover.

Since 1.4% of unvaccinated people die of COVID and 1.23% of people who get vaccinated and still catch COVID-19 die (according to the CDC), how effective are these vaccinations, really?

New Report from CDC: Nearly 6,000 People Infected with COVID After Getting Vaccinated

Some 5,800 people who received a coronavirus vaccine still caught the disease. 396 of them were hospitalized and 74 of the vaccinated people died.

New Report from CDC on COVID Vaccines

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has come out with an interesting recent report on how effective the new COVID-19 vaccines are for preventing Coronavirus. They aren't.

If you don't get vaccinated, you have a 1.4% chance of dying of COVID if you catch the disease. If you do get vaccinated and still catch coronavirus, you have a 1.23% chance of dying of COVID-19. 

According to a news report on CNN. the CDC has reported that approximately 5,800 people who received a coronavirus vaccine still ultimately came down with the disease anyway. Of those 5,800, 396 of them (roughly 7 percent) were hospitalized with COVID-19. Out of that number,74 of the vaccinated people (or 1.23%) ultimately died from coronavirus. 

In other words, if you don't get vaccinated and catch coronavirus, according to many experts, you have a 1.4% chance of dying of COVID. If you do get vaccinated and still catch coronavirus, you have a 1.23% chance of dying of COVID-19. 

This raises the question of just how effective these coronavirus vaccines are and points to how ineffective any suggested "Vaccination Passports" would be.
