Running:

* Why the 50 Is Not Just the 50 [Ultra-Trail Australia]
“I’m just doing the 50.” “I’m not mad enough to try and run 100km.” “I’m not ready for 100km.”
Just a few of the responses us UTA50 runners give when asked which event we are doing. We are our biggest critic. Nobody told you it was “just 50km” and I’d bet there are plenty who thought you were “mad” when you told them you had signed up for a 50km race through the upper reaches of the Blue Mountains. The 50 is never just the 50, the question you need to ask yourself is, “Am I ready for the 50?!”

The map shows heavy bicycling activity in the Melbourne CBD. The time slider shows two pulses of heavy cycling activity, from 6:30 through 9:30 AM and from 5:30 – 7:30 PM.

In brief:

* Adidas – Break Free

* If we are reaching neoliberal capitalism’s end days, what comes next? (2017-Feb-06) [The Conversation]
The consequences of these failures are largely unseen or avoided by policymakers in the US and their camp followers in the UK and Australia. They are in denial of the fact that not only has neoliberalism failed to meet its claimed goals, but it has worked devastatingly to undermine the very foundations of late-modern capitalism.
The result is that the whole shambolic structure is tottering on the edge of an economic abyss.
