Bacterial infections can come from different sources.  The best protection you can do against such is to be clean and hygienic.  However, there are instances wherein no matter how clean you are, you will develop an infection one way or the other.  The thing about bacterial infections is that they have the capacity to proliferate if you do not take any treatment, making them spread to other organs as well as making them more difficult to treat.  For this reason, it is important to take antibiotics to assist your immune system in fighting off the infection.

Buy Priligy Dapoxetine United States

Premature ejaculation is a natural thing for men, especially when they are just learning sex.  Young men who are still in their teens and early adulthood most often suffer from this condition since they still lack experience over the activity as well as the personal pride of knowing how to please their female partner.  However, as a man gains more experience, he learns more and more how to control his early ejaculate issues until he becomes good enough being able to last longer than his female partner.  This is important because sex is a give and take and should be in symbiosis with both sex partners.

The problem that some men face is that no matter how much experience they make or technique they use, they simply are not able to last longer in bed than their female partners, as early ejaculate issue plagues their sex life.  If you suffer from premature ejaculation and would like to remedy your condition, using Priligy will help you in temporarily relieving your early ejaculate issue.  The drug Priligy will essentially provide you the capacity to last in bed longer and thus will allow you to sexually pleasure your partner.

Please Dont Bike To School!?!?

by Abhishek on August 10, 2009

I found an article on kids not being allowed to ride their bikes to school. It was in Saratoga Springs NY. School officials protested against a mother and son when they decided to ride their bikes to school on Bike to Work day. The boy’s bike was confiscated. Read story on The Saratogian here: link. More news  here: link

This reminded me of another article in the UK. The 11 year old lost his battle to ride his bike to school in Portsmouth. This time, the CTC (http://www.ctc.org.uk/) tried working with the school to establish that bike riding on roads is safe for kids. See full story here: link

Both schools said that the roads outside were unsafe for bicycling. A professional risk assessment done by the CTC in Portsmouth found that the road was in fact safe.

There is more discussion on these news articles on Bike Commuters: link

I am of the opinion that the type of safety in question is skewed. People consider operating a car safe where the fatality rate is almost twice in cars (0.47 per million hours) as it is for bicycles (0.26 per million hours) per Planet Green.

According to David Hembrow  http://hembrow.blogspot.com/2008/09/three-types-of-safety.html

There are three measures of safety, all of which have their place in Dutch bicycle provision:

  1. Actual safety – How many km you can expect to travel before you’re injured on your bike.
  2. Subjective safety – Are you near fast moving traffic? Is it easy to make a turn across traffic? Do you have to cycle “fast” in order to keep up?
  3. Social safety – Is there a mugger around that blind corner? Will I be attacked in the street if I cycle?

The Subjective Safety with riding bicycles on roads is quite low, making overall safety appear unacceptable. The Subjective Safety in driving a car surrounded by metal and airbags, ABS, ESC etc is relatively high.

I am inclined to think this is what the school official are spooked by. What the professional risk assessors have probably assessed is the ‘Actual Safety’. Subjective safety is one of the reasons why parents do not let their kids ride to school alone. Some accompany their kids to school on bikes. Others just drive.

What are we doing to improve Subjective Safety? Should it be considered important when designing roads? How does one measure it?

As a parent, what would make you think it is safe to let your kids to ride their bikes to school?

I think that letting people know the actual safety statistics might help. And yes, Subjective Safety should be considered when designing roads.
