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."

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.

Gun Rights Activists Say They Won't Follow California's New Laws
 
01:11
Gun rights activists in California aren't happy about stricter gun legislation signed into law last week and are protesting to prove their point.  California Gov. Jerry Brown signed six gun control measures into law on Friday. They include a broader ban on assault weapons and background checks for people buying ammunition.  California's Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de León said it was "a historic day" when the package passed Thursday. He told the media, "I don’t know how much more blood needs to be spilled in our schools, in our community centers, in public spaces, until the members of Congress act and we can do this nationwide." SEE MORE: "California Tightens Gun Laws In Aftermath Of San Bernardino, Orlando" Protesters who gathered peacefully in Sacramento on Saturday said those new restrictions would turn "law-abiding citizens into criminals." The Sacramento Bee reports that the protesters had initially hoped to stop the laws from being signed, but now they want to get the message across that they won't follow along when the legislation goes into effect next year.  Following the signing, Brown said his goal was to protect gun owner's rights while improving public safety. Brown did veto five other gun control bills he felt were too restrictive. "You steal a fire arm, it should be a felony. And that gets vetoed and yet they want to take away all the guns that we have," protest organizer Mel Scott said.  The legislation was introduced shortly after two attackers killed 14 people in San Bernardino last year. It was pushed through the legislature after the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando last month renewed the nationwide debate about ways to prevent gun violence.  This video includes clips from KERO, The Sacramento Bee and images from Getty Images and Facebook / American Patriot the III% Northern California.  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.

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 European Parliament Really Isn't Pleased With Nigel Farage
 
01:56
Nigel Farage, one of the main architects of the U.K.'s exit from the European Union, also happens to be a member of the European Parliament. So when he showed up in the European Parliament for a special session, things got kind of heated. Farage said, "I know that virtually none of you have ever done a proper job in your lives." Farage laid into the assembled MEPs, saying the EU's ambitions for a united Europe had failed miserably. He said, "By stealth, by deception, without ever telling the truth to the British or the rest of the peoples of Europe, you imposed upon them a political union." And he got an assist from France's far-right politician Marine Le Pen, who's campaigning for a similar referendum on EU membership in her country. She called Brexit "a signal of freedom sent to the entire world." But the pro-EU wing of Parliament wasn't having it, accusing Farage of using misleading and xenophobic claims to persuade the U.K. to vote out. Manfred Weber, of the European People's Party, said, "I ask Mr. Farage: If you had an ounce of decency in you, you would apologize to the British. Shame on you." "The posters of Mr. Farage showing refugees like in Nazi propaganda. ... I never thought it was possible that somebody in this house should do a thing like that," said Guy Verhofstadt of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe. One thing Farage and the rest of Parliament have in common: a desire to get this over with. Farage told Parliament the will of the British people must be carried out as soon as possible. And European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker seems eager to see the backs of the Brexiters.  He said: "You are fighting for the exit, the British people voted for the exit. Why are you here?" This video includes images from Getty Images. Newsy is your source for concise, unbiased video news and analysis covering the top stories from around the world.

Where Does The Internet Come From?
 
01:33
The internet: We use it every day, for everything from gaming to news to binging cat videos. But despite the ease of access from just about anywhere these days, it's not a magic information field. So where does it come from? There isn't one big room that hands out bandwidth. Instead, the internet is a network of networks. It links all of the individual servers, computers and devices across the planet. More and more of our communications — and all of our websites — live there and travel across it. For most home users, internet access starts at an Internet Service Provider, or ISP. Some ISPs buy their own service from even larger ISPs. At the top of the stack are the Tier 1 providers. SEE MORE: Gigabit Internet Is Still Almost Uselessly Fast — For Now These huge networks connect to one another with the help of underwater data cables. They're what make the internet global. Not everything travels across those cables every day, though. Companies like Netflix and Google run their own datacenters, which connect to the rest of the network at boring buildings called internet exchange points. If you're checking your email or streaming video, chances are it's coming through one of these exchange points and then through your ISP to you. All told, it's a lot of traffic. The International Telecommunications Union estimates there were some 3.2 billion people online in 2015 sending around more than 20,000 gigabytes per second — and traffic is expected to triple by 2020. That's a lot of cat videos.
