MALTA cool for Europe and now for USA as well

Malta got the 3° place, it is an affordable Mediterranean playground with a superb climate, sublime beaches, megalithic temples and a distinctive crossroads culture. English is one of two official languages, but few Americans have discovered Malta’s charms. There are three inhabited islands to explore — Malta, home to buzzing Valletta, a Unesco World Heritage city of stunning limestone buildings; Gozo, more tranquil and with a dramatic coastline filled with great spots for diving; and idyllic, car-free Comino, which has one hotel and few residents. As Valletta celebrates its 450th anniversary this year, the old city has gotten some fresh touches, including a new city gate, a restored open-air opera house and a new parliament building, all designed by the renowned architect Renzo Piano. And in Malta, you can follow in the footsteps of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, who spent their honeymoon shooting their latest film, “By the Sea,” in Gozo, which served as a more economical, but equally romantic, stand-in for the South of France. (You may also recognize the island from “The Whale” or “The Da Vinci Code.”)

Al terzo posto, sempre sul podio, c’è Malta, il mediterraneo racchiuso nello spazio di una monetina.Un clima favorevole, spiagge sublimi, templi megalitici e una cultura mix, piena di influenze di ogni tipo ne fanno uno dei posti preferiti dal Nyt. L’inglese è una delle due lingue ufficiali, ma finora pochi americani hanno scoperto lo charme di Malta. Nell’arcipelago ci sono tre isole da esplorare. Malta e la sua trafficata capitale Valletta, tra le città protette dall’Unesco per le sue case in pietra bianca. Gozo, più calma con la sua costa rocciosa piena di posti fantastici per fare immersioni subacquee. E, in ultimo, la idilliaca Comino, piccolissima, auto-free, che ha un solo albergo e pochi residenti. Quest’anno sarà speciale per la Valletta che celebra il 450esimo dalla fondazione. Con tanti eventi nella sua città vecchia e tanti altri nella sua parte più moderna, tra cui l’inagurazione della restaurata Opera house all’aperto e del Nuovo Parlamento, entrambi progettati da Renzo Piano. Gli americani consigliano di seguire per visitare Malta le tracce di Angelina Jolie e Brad Pitt che qui, a Gozo, hanno girato il loro ultimo film “By the Sea”

A Governance based on bikes…..

The bicycle is an amazing piece of technology that is capable of solving at least a few of our modern day health, environmental, and energy problems. Consider that in many parts of the world where bicycles are the norm there is usually far less obesity, debt, and reliance on imported oil and the big offensive military that is required to invade nations and murder the people so we may take their oil.

“No single raindrop ever feels like it is responsible for the flood.”

 Speaking of raindrops, one of my favorite movies of all time is Butch Cassidy and The Sundance KidThe bicycle scene with Butch and Etta is unforgettable.  Like many, I grew up riding a bike.  I learned at a young age how to fix a flat and put on the chain.  I loved the freedom of riding around town.  My first stitches, five in the chin, were earned in a bike wreck that was caused by me.  Consequences are such a powerful thing.

Sadly, kids these days tend to text their friends, or chat virtually inside an x-box game, rather than ride over to each other’s home.

Bicycles are elegant…

Bicycles are efficient…

Bicycles are effective…

When widely adopted, bicycles can have a big effect on a population.

While Europe is getting fatter, the Netherlands is getting thinner. It’s the only country in which the World Health Organization (WHO) is predicting a decline in obesity rates.

One reason, possibly the main reason, the Dutch are not getting more obese is bicycles:

In the Netherlands 27% of all trips and 25% of trips to work are made by bike. The average distance cycled per person per day is 2.5 km. Holland and bicycles go together like bread and jam. Despite the recession the cycle-happy Dutch are still spending a lot of money on their bicycles – nearly 1 billion euros’ worth a year. About 1.3 million bicycles were sold in the Netherlands in 2009, at an average price of 713 euros ($1,008) each. Amsterdam (the capital and largest city of the Netherlands) is one of the most bicycle-friendly large cities in the world. It has 400 km of bike lanes and nearly 40% of all commutes in Amsterdam are done on bike.

For comparison:

In the USA only 0.9% of all trips are made by bike. The average distance cycled per person is 0.1 km.

Minneapolis, San Francisco, Portland, Denver, and Boston are consistently ranked among the top bicycle cities in the USA.  You will not find one of these five cities among the 25 fattest cities in the USA.  Houston is the fattest city in the USA, is also probably the very worst for bicycles, and was ranked second by county for gasoline consumption, just behind Los Angeles.

The economics are obvious:

How do average people afford a $33,560 car when they make $28,031 in a year?  Debt, of course!

Through early September, Wall Street firms issued nearly $70 billion in securities backed by auto loans, up 9% from the same period a year ago, according to J.P. Morgan. About $21 billion of those were backed by subprime loans to relatively risky borrowers.

Subprime car-loan originations have taken off in recent years as lenders have loosened underwriting criteria in this sector, allowing for borrowers with low, and often no, credit scores to get access to financing. During the first half of 2015, lenders gave out $56.4 billion in subprime auto loans, up 13% from the same period a year ago and up 181% from the first half of 2009, when the market for these loans bottomed out, according to credit-reporting firm Equifax Inc.

In contrast, I recently bought this folding bike for less than $300.  It was made in China, which I now regret, but if you are willing to spend more than $1,000, then you can get one made in the USA.  They easily fold up in about 10 seconds to put it in the back of a car, carry it on a train, throw it in the storage under a bus, or take it up the elevator to an apartment or office.  No gasoline expense.  No insurance expense.  No parking expense.

So, if you are are sick from being overweight, tired of bombing brown people to steal their oil, and want to know something you can do about it, TODAY , that will also improve your personal financial situation, then ditch the car and ride a bike.  You will feel better, and better about yourself, and remember, no single raindrop ever feels like it is responsible for the flood.

Go Dutch!

Be well!

Peace!
