How London treats different forms of transportation is a topic that never drops out of the public eye.
But, as cars, buses and bikes all jostle for space on the roads, the City of London has been looking into another eco-friendly way of getting around, and this one’s unusual in some circles.
Longboarding is like skateboarding but a lot more serious.
Skateboards are for tricks, said enthusiast and city staffer Chris Gosnell, but longboards are for transportation. He’s part of a team, in partnership with YFC London, that’s been leading six weeks of longboarding lessons for kids in Argyle.
“It’s an opportunity to learn how to operate a longboard safely and understand the dos and don’ts of what it is to be riding safely,” Gosnell said, “Whether that’s in their own neighbourhood on the sidewalk, or on the street.”
Yes, the street.
Longboards are street-legal in London. Although bylaws vary…

I just wanted everyone to know that from now on I will not be reposting from wordpress.com several times a day. I will still be blogging and reblogging here, but it is actually so much easier for me to have an online newspaper. I have two: one strictly for indy wrestling, and one that is based off of my website, jadelafemme.com. It is called “Blossom to Binary”. It’s everything I am interested in that you see me post here, but it is soooo much less time consuming. I am a single mother who’s kid is growing like a weed, as they tend to do, and I am also a caretaker to my daugher, who has non-verbal Autism.
I love sharing all the topics I find interesting and have people respond to it, but I also need to focus on my writing, which I will discuss in my personal blog:
And also my review blog:
where I will now be reviewing various books from bloggingforbooks.org

Bucky Lasek added yet another X Games medal to his trophy case Saturday in Austin, Texas. But this one was different.
After more than two decades of competition, the 41-year-old has established himself as one of the most decorated skateboarders on the planet. But two years ago, Lasek decided to give rallycross racing a try.
His progress in the sport was recognized in 2013 when he earned Red Bull Global Rallycross’ sportsmanship award, but he had yet to get that breakthrough finish for Subaru Rally Team USA.
On Saturday, it finally came as Lasek earned X Games silver – his first Red Bull GRC podium – behind winner Scott Speed at Circuit of the Americas.
Afterwards, Lasek told the GRC’s official website that his new rallycross silver was “the hardest-fought medal I’ve ever had to work for.”
“It brings me to tears, I’m just holding them back,” he added. “My…

SAN JUAN CAPISTRANO (CBSLA.com) — Nyjah Huston is considered one of the best skateboarders on the planet.
As neighbors go, he’s ranked a lot lower.
KCAL9′s Bobby Kaple spoke to some of the X Games superstars neighbors and to hear them tell it, Huston we have a problem.
Kaple said the neighbors complain about what they call the 19-year-old’s hard-partying lifestyle.
He lives in a multimillion-dollar home, but they think he’s a party animal.
“When the music’s blaring, you would think you were at Caesar’s Palace,” says neighbor Rob Morey.
Morey lives across the street from Huston and says the parties are constant and out of control.
“Doesn’t matter if it’s Monday or Tuesday … Friday, Saturday or Sunday. The parties have just been crazy. There are 200-300 people here on weekends. You can’t even pull a car down the middle of the street,” Morey said.
Deputies have been…
