Officially described as a “3 Wheel Cambering Vehicle,” the Trikke uses a unique design in which the entire unit tilts from one side to the other. This tilt creates a man made down slope, causing the Trikke to move forward as soon as the rider performs a skate style horizontal push off. The feet never need to make contact with the ground; the back and forth motion of the lower body, which is similar to an inline skater’s, propels the vehicle and rider forward.

Other gurus will suggest the purchase of shorter term bonds or CDs (ugh) to stem the tide of the perceived erosion in portfolio values.
I think there’s a whole huge population of filmmakers who are not getting giant, mainstream opportunities and there’s a tremendous amount of resources out there in the world with enormous talent. It was just a matter of being resourceful. The talent was still very thoughtfully selected; it wasn’t by any means arbitrary.
Critics said the so called cabaret law originated as a racist attempt to police Harlem’s 1920s jazz clubs preventing shows from Billie Holiday and Ray Charles and drawing protest from Frank Sinatra and continued to be enforced unfairly. “If you’re Latino, if you’re black, if you’re from the LGBTQ community, you all have been impacted by this law,” said city councilman Rafael Espinal, a Brooklyn Democrat, who introduced the repeal. “It is time we right this historical wrong.” The repeal will go into effect 30 days after Mayor Bill de Blasio signs it.
