How To Bike To Work Like A Pro Commuter
 
01:52
Biking to work is a great way save money on gas and parking, send less carbon dioxide into the atmosphere and improve your personal health. But it takes some preparation, even after you take your bike to the shop to get it tuned up for the season. So, think about what you're going to bring with you before you ride. Also, check the weather — just in case. If it's going to rain, fenders and rain gear are a must. And if it's going to be dark at any point in your commute, you'll need lights on the front and rear of your bike; a helmet light might be a good idea, too. Here are a few other things you may want to bring: Your helmet, sunglasses, a tire pump with a gauge, a change of shoes, your wallet, something to eat (at work, of course), a change of clothes and anything else you think is important. And if you're wearing longer pants and you don't want to rip them, go ahead and roll up the pant leg so it doesn't catch. Try to avoid roads that aren't bike friendly, and if you can avoid roads altogether and use a trail instead, that's awesome. But more than likely, you're going to have to share the road with cars at some point in your commute. So, it's important to follow the rules of the road: Wear a helmet; stop at stop signs and red stop lights; signal when you're making turns; stay to the right of the road; avoid using sidewalks (especially in business districts); and on bike paths or sidewalks, alert pedestrians before passing them — it can be terrifying when a bike passes you unannounced. Lastly, remember to use hand signals so cars know what you're planning to do. Here are the basics: For a left hand turn, hold out your left arm. For a right hand turn, hold out your right arm. If you're stopping or slowing down, hold your left arm out to your side with your hand near your waist. It's a lot to keep track of at first, but don't worry. It gets easier with practice, just like riding a bike. This video includes images from Vicons Design / CC BY 3.0.

What Agent Orange Does To The Body
 
01:51
More than 2,000 U.S. airmen will be compensated for exposure to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. What has the herbicide done to their bodies? Follow Cliff Judy: http://www.twitter.com/cliffjudy See more at http://www.newsy.com Transcript: More than 2,000 U.S. airmen who suffered from Agent Orange exposure will receive a total of about $47.5 million in benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. A January report on the herbicide is getting much of the credit for the decision announced Thursday. Vets have to prove they worked on a C-123 aircraft contaminated with the substance during the Vietnam War and that they're showing symptoms. In Vietnam, America dropped more than 19 million gallons of herbicides, with Agent Orange being the favorite. The hope was that the chemicals would strip Vietnam of its dense trees and give U.S. soldiers the upper hand. The reason Agent Orange is so dangerous is because of the chemical dioxin. Once in the body, it can hit just about everything — including the nervous, respiratory and circulatory systems. "Dioxin remains toxic for decades," a spokeswoman for Make Agent Orange History said. It's also not water-soluble, meaning it doesn't degrade easily, and genetic effects can be passed down through generations after one person's exposed. For some vets, the first symptoms began with blurred vision, memory loss and lack of concentration. From there, the symptoms can get a lot worse. Agent Orange has been linked to prostate cancer, lung cancers, Parkinson's disease and birth defects. After coming back from the war, soldiers and their children born after the war began to show symptoms. (Video via Java Films / "The Children of Agent Orange") Vets began protesting as effects showed, but the VA said there was a lack of evidence to support their claims. (Video via The New York Times) "We don't mean to say there isn't an Agent Orange effect, but at this point in time we don't seem to see anything that confirms that there is something there specifically," Dr. Alvin Young from the VA Agent Orange Task Force said in media clips compiled by The New York Times. The VA eventually backtracked, and in 1991, the Agent Orange Act was passed — allowing vets to receive benefits. On Thursday, the secretary of the VA said in a statement, "Opening up eligibility for this deserving group of Air Force veterans and reservists is the right thing to do."

Our Obsession With Cute Canines Is Killing The English Bulldog
 
01:51
Most dog-lovers can agree: English bulldogs are pretty darn cute. After all, those trademark flat faces, adorable underbites and stocky bodies helped make them the fourth most popular breed registered with the American Kennel Club. But breeding bulldogs to have those desirable traits may come at a dangerous cost. According to a new study published in Canine Genetics and Epidemiology, hundreds of years of inbreeding to produce desirable traits in purebred bulldogs has caused extreme damage to the breed. And researchers believe it would be nearly impossible to save them without crossbreeding them with other dogs. As one of the study's authors told The Washington Post, "The English bulldog is the most egregious example of getting carried away with oneself in actually designing a dog that’s as far from nature as you can possibly get." SEE MORE: Humans May Have Tamed Wolves Twice Because Dogs Are Worth It To come to this conclusion, scientists studied the DNA of 102 healthy English bulldogs. They found the average bulldog is "genetically equivalent to offspring of full sibling parents that came from a highly inbred subpopulation." Translation: The dogs were more closely related than if their parents had been siblings. And that definitely causes issues for them. Selective breeding to produce the perfect bulldog has given them many health problems, including poor eyesight, shortness of breath, skin allergies and hip dysplasia. The breed's health has deteriorated so much, one section of the study claims, "Bulldogs that reproduce without assistance, move freely, walk or run for long distances, and breathe normally even at rest are the exception." And, because bulldogs are so genetically similar now, one researcher says the chances of breeding those harmful traits out of the gene pool are slim to none. The study has gotten a lot of attention in the U.K. and renewed calls for important revisions in breed standards.  Newsy is your source for concise, unbiased video news and analysis covering the top stories from around the world.

Fighting Wildfire With Fire — With Drones
 
01:18
The U.S. Forest Service is exploring a new tool that could help wildland firefighters do their jobs: a drone that drops tiny firebombs. Scientists at the University of Nebraska developed the drones to start controlled burns. The remote drones carry a hopper of what are essentially incendiary paintballs. "Each ball is rotated and injected with alcohol to start a chemical reaction before being dropped to the ground. Seconds later, the ball ignites," said a narrator from the University of Nebraska. The mechanical precision could be useful for firefighters setting prescribed burns in the wild. These intentional fires consume fuel that might otherwise feed uncontrolled fires. They also help fight invasive plant species and return useful nutrients to the soil. Right now, they're set by hand or from helicopters. The U.S. Geological Survey thinks using drones to do it could be safer — air accidents have accounted for about a quarter of firefighter deaths in the U.S. since 2000. But there's still a lot of red tape in the way before drones can start distributing fire themselves. The U.S. Forest Service still treats them as full-size aircraft, with all the same training and maintenance requirements. And the FAA has strict rules against drones carrying "hazardous materials." Fireballs would probably qualify. Newsy is your source for concise, unbiased video news and analysis covering the top stories from around the world.

The Ocean Is Too Loud For Whales And Dolphins
 
01:23
Our oceans are noisy. The movement of ships, pinging of sonar and whir of propellers are a near constant wherever man is. And that has a big affect on ocean life, especially mammals like whales and dolphins that use sound to communicate, move around and locate food. For one, man-made sonar disrupts whale behavior. A 2008 study found that some whale species stop "vocalizing and foraging for food" around sonar. And that can lead to starvation and death. Sonar can hurt whales in other ways. It can make them flee and beach themselves. Some species are affected by sonar more than others. Even blue whales — one of the largest animals we know of — will flee from sonar. Because sonar can harm marine mammals, the U.S. Navy has — in 2015 and 2016 — limited sonar testing and lowered sonar levels. There's other noise pollution. Loud noises, like boat propellers or blasting for oil wells, make whales dive frantically, which can give them the bends, a condition where nitrogen bubbles form in the tissue. This can kill them. And while law says animals can't be exposed to sounds louder than 180 decibels, noise carries farther underwater. Whales up to 124 miles away might respond to those noises. But it's not all bad news. A 2016 road map offered ways to reduce oceanic noise pollution, like protecting natural soundscapes, using existing laws to fight habitat disruption and promoting quieter technologies.

3 Things You Got Wrong About Steroids In Baseball
 
01:49
Skinny guys take steroids, too. That's been the takeaway for a lot of baseball fans after Major League Baseball hit Miami Marlins speedster Dee Gordon with a suspension for using banned substances. Seeing a player who's never hit more than four home runs in a season get busted like this can be surprising for some, but Gordon's suspension highlights a few misconceptions baseball fans have regarding banned drugs. First off, taking steroids isn't just for big-time home run hitters. No matter how many drugs athletes take, they won't gain muscle unless they work out. But when athletes take steroids, they can work out longer and recover quicker, making it that much easier to stay buff. This means a guy like Dee Gordon — who insists he didn't knowingly take PEDs — probably wouldn't ever try to look like Mark McGwire, steroids or not. But Gordon has put on over 25 pounds since his MLB debut in 2011. Second, taking steroids doesn't make you a superstar overnight. Although we often hear about big-name players getting busted for PEDs, the truth is that most of the players who've been suspended are still trying to make the big leagues. In 2015 alone, minor leaguers were hit with over 100 suspensions for drug-related offenses, compared to just five major leaguers caught using PEDs. These numbers are skewed a bit, of course. There are far more players in the minors than in the MLB, and there are plenty of folks who think some MLB players are getting away with PED use. Lastly, at least on the big league level, a PED suspension doesn't mean a player's career is over. Players like Nelson Cruz, Jhonny Peralta and Melky Cabrera have all signed sizable contracts shortly after getting hit with suspensions and have gone on to play well. And keep in mind, baseball contracts are always guaranteed. This means once Gordon's suspension is up, he'll go back to earning money from the five-year, $50 million contract extension he signed this past offseason.

Why Does Restarting The Router Fix Wi-Fi Connection Problems? - Newsy
 
01:15
Here's a question: When my Wi-Fi goes out, why does restarting it fix the problem? Think of restarting your router, or router-modem combo, as a way to refresh the device. Routers are essentially tiny computers with limited processing power and memory. The more you ask it to do, the harder it has to work. And just like if you leave your computer running for days on end, your router can also slow down or hang up if you don't give it a break. Restarting it clears its memory and resets tasks that might've stalled. One of its most important jobs is handing out unique IP addresses for each device that connects to it. If you have a lot of devices requesting addresses or devices frequently jumping on and off the network, the router sometimes can't keep up. The modem can also lose its connection to your internet service provider — especially with DSL. In that case, restarting is really your easiest option to reconnect.

The Story Behind Alicia Keys' #NoMakeup Motivation
 
01:36
Actually, Alicia Keys and I do have something in common. We're both ditching makeup! Not such a big deal for me, but the singer is being praised for why she decided to go without. Keys opened up in Lenny Letter about dealing with beauty standards for women within entertainment and how the need to be "perfect" manifested into something unhealthy. She wrote: "Every time I left the house, I would be worried if I didn't put on makeup: What if someone wanted a picture?? What if they POSTED it???" But according to Keys, the first photo shoot for her new album prompted her to go uncovered, in a way. She said a photographer wanted to shoot the singer right out of the gym, hair wrapped, chillin' with no makeup on. Keys said, "I swear it is the strongest, most empowered, most free, and most honestly beautiful that I have ever felt." She expressed a similar sentiment in an interview with Fault magazine, saying, "Once I can teach myself that there is no perfect and that I am meant to have my FAULTS, that is when I become beautiful." These recent features aren't the first time Keys has publicly talked about her appearance and standards for women. "It's like, 'Oh my. If you have acne, you better go hide under a rock," Keys said.  She was featured as a spokesperson for Proactiv Solution, opening up about her struggles with acne. For Keys' recent #NoMakeup movement, she says, "I hope to God it's a revolution." If Swizz Beatz' Instagram is any indication, we'll be seeing much more from the makeup-less Ms. Keys. The singer's husband posted this picture from a Vanity Fair shoot, saying, well, you see the reaction. This video includes images from Getty Images and clips from Sony Music Entertainment, RCA and Proactiv.

What Happens At The Republican And Democratic Conventions, Day By Day
 
02:11
It's not all about confetti and balloons. Every four years, each political party meets and chooses a platform and a president — or at least a nominee.  Most Americans see them in short bursts on TV, especially on the last night, when the nominees give their big speeches. But a lot happens before that — and only some of it shows up on prime-time. Delegates get the behind-the-scenes work done: about 2,500 at the Republican National Convention; about 4,700 at the Democratic convention. They help with the party platform — basically a document that says what the party believes, like a $15 minimum wage or renegotiating trade policies. A committee writes it up, then the delegates vote to approve or amend. SEE MORE: Police Enlist Cleveland's Homeless For Extra Eyes During RNC But day one is also about setting the tone in the keynote speech — often given by a rising star in the party.  The next day, those same delegates vote again — this time it's to decide the nominee, and it gets a lot more TV time than the day before. Day three is all about the speakers. The party trots out its best and brightest — at least the ones willing to speak positively about the nominee. The night is typically topped off with a speech from the candidate for vice president. On the convention's last day, the nominee — the party's new standard bearer — makes their closing speech and sets their sights on their opponent. This year should be interesting.

The Clothes You're Wearing Could Be Made Out Of Plastic Bottles
 
01:18
Traditional cotton or linen clothes are so last century. Some of the duds you're rocking right now might actually be made out of recycled bottles. Yes, some of the plastic bottles you drink out of and recycle are reborn as polyester yarn. The fiber is called Repreve, and it's made by textile manufacturer in North Carolina. After recycling your plastic bottles, they're sorted and chopped into minuscule flakes. The manufacturer turns those flakes into small pellets, which are then melted down and spun into a yarn, ultimately becoming a sustainable fabric. CNN reports some Repreve fiber is made of 100 percent recycled bottles, while others are mixtures of fiber waste, used fabric and plastic bottles. You only need five plastic bottles to make a T-shirt out of Repreve fabric, while just seven are required for a pair of pants. And this year, around 400,000 college graduates received their diplomas in Oak Hall graduation gowns, each made up of 27 bottles. But you'll need 42 bottles to make the car seats for the Ford Fusion. The automaker had Repreve fabric in five models as of March 2015. For the past 25 years, Americans have recycled more plastic bottles each year, according to the American Chemistry Council. But consumers still usually just toss the majority of bottles produced. This video includes clips from Repreve, WSLS and Ford Motor Co. and images from Getty Images.

So Why Does The Indy 500 Winner Always Drink Milk?
 
01:46
The 100th Indianapolis 500 is scheduled for Sunday, and though we don't know which driver will be taking the checkered flag, we know he or she will enjoy a bottle of milk at the finish line.  This may seem kind of weird, since milk probably isn't the first thing most folks would turn to when hopping out of a sweltering race car. But like most things at Indy, it's a tradition, and there's an interesting story behind it. It all started when Louis Meyer cooled off with a glass of buttermilk after he won his third 500 in 1936. As the story goes, a dairy exec saw a picture of him in the paper and realized he was looking at a pretty big marketing opportunity.  So from then on, minus a brief hiatus from 1947 to 1955, every Indy 500 winner has been presented with milk after the race. Not all milk is created equal, though. Before the race, every Indy 500 driver lets race officials know whether they want whole, 2 percent or skim milk if they make it to victory lane. This choice is important, since by now giving the milk a pass is not an option. Emerson Fittipaldi drank orange juice instead in 1993 and fans booed him at the track, though he did later take a swig of milk.  Downing a bottle of milk is just one of the traditions the race winner gets to take part in. The winner also gets his or her face in 3-D on the Borg-Warner Trophy, and gets a chance to kiss the 106-year-old bricks marking the finish line. And fans get in on the traditions, too, including singing along to "Back Home Again in Indiana" right before the race starts.  Fans will also be able to take part in the milk tradition this year, with 100,000 bottles handed out for what the speedway is calling the largest milk toast ever.  So that's why the winner will be guzzling dairy on Sunday afternoon. And you won't find any drivers complaining about it. "After 500 miles, you're really happy, you're celebrating, and you're kind of thirsty. That milk drinks awesome," three-time Indy 500 winner Hélio Castroneves said. "It tastes just like champagne."  This video includes images from Getty Images and clips from WRTV and Pennzoil.

You'll Have To Wait 100 Years For John Malkovich's Latest Movie
 
02:03
With movie hype at an all-time high, we see actors promoting films like "Star Wars" and "The Avengers" months before they're due to come out. But promoting a film nearly a century before its release date is something new. But that's just what John Malkovich is planning to do at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival.  The appropriately titled "100 Years: The Movie You Will Never See" will make an appearance at Cannes even though it won't be released until the year 2115. And you thought waiting for "The Force Awakens" was tough. “The notion inherent in this is for us to try and imagine what the world will be like in a hundred years,” Malkovich says in the trailer. Beyond that concept, the movie is a complete mystery. We know Robert Rodriguez directed the film, but the trailers don't actually contain any movie footage, so it's anyone's guess what Malkovich thinks 2115 will be like. While it's certainly an interesting concept to see how accurate the film’s predictions will be, it's not a commercially viable one. You'd be hard pressed to find a movie studio willing to wait a century to profit on a film.  It turns out "100 Years" is actually a promotion for Louis XIII cognac, which bills itself as "One century in a bottle" because "each decanter takes four generations of cellar masters over 100 years to craft."  As far as product placement in the film goes, this one certainly makes sense. And the Louis XIII website has a handy countdown clock for your great-grandchildren to keep track of the release date. The film is locked in a safe and will make several more stops on its international tour before it's stashed in a Louis XIII cellar in Cognac, France, where it will remain until the safe unlocks on Nov.18, 2115. And don't even think about preordering tickets because the premiere for "100 Years" is invitation only. Louis XIII is giving out 1,000 metal tickets to influential people of our time so their descendants can enjoy the film and you can have another reason to resent them.

Oregon Parents Say They Can't Get Justice For Their Abused Baby
 
01:36
The parents of a 1-year-old boy say his babysitter abused him, and now the family is fighting the Oregon legal system. After returning from a date in March, Jacob Marbury's mom says she found her son crying on the floor of his room and the babysitter asleep on the couch.  "The next morning it was 8:30, and that's when he woke up, and that's when I saw Jacob. The first thing I saw was a black eye," Alicia Quinney said. Doctors performed various tests on the boy, and his parents filed a police report. KPTV reports the babysitter was questioned by law enforcement but not arrested.  The case was handed to the Washington County district attorney, but Friday Jacob's parents learned the babysitter will not be charged. According to The Oregonian, prosecutors say a 2012 court ruling complicates how abuse cases are handled. When victims can't speak, lawyers are left to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a defendant caused "substantial pain and serious physical injury."  But that's tough to do. A 2009 conviction of an Oregon babysitter was overturned by a panel of judges in 2012 because the 16-month-old child who was allegedly abused could not explain that he felt "substantial pain." The judges ruled injuries such as bruises and minor cuts weren't enough evidence. "It's absurd. I mean, what if my kid was mute? What if my kid was in a coma?" Joshua Marbury said. Jacob's aunt launched a GoFundMe site saying "funds will be used to help the family with household expenses, counseling for Jacob's sister ... and any future attorney fees." As of Monday afternoon, it had raised nearly $5,000. And a Change.Org petition calling for the Oregon Supreme Court to review the case and "serve justice" had more than 13,000 signatures.
