Paris clamps down on electric scooters as law of the jungle rules

PARIS (Reuters) – If you’re spending time in Paris this summer and decide to check out one of the 20,000 electric scooters buzzing along its boulevards, you might want to be careful how you ride and where you end up parking. Over the past year the city has become awash with the zippy two-wheelers, with 12 start-ups offering the chance to download an app and dash across the Seine for not much more than the cost of a metro ticket. But the scooters’ popularity, and the relative lack of rules around their use, has prompted City Hall to impose overdue restrictions, with fines for driving them on the pavement or parking them in doorways, crosswalks and other busy places. After two deaths and scores of injuries, residents have become increasingly vocal against the scooters, which are expected to number up to 40,000 by the end of this year. From July 1, a spot fine of 35 euros ($40) will be levied on bad parking, while those caught on the sidewalk will be hit with a 135-euro penalty. A speed limit of 20 km/hr has been imposed across the capital. More than 1,000 tickets have been issued and about 600 scooters impounded, authorities said, and a new surveillance force has been set u...

We are well-known for our wheel loaders, and we’re probably the world’s leading manufacturer of these. But we also have a strong product portfolio spanning a wide range of other equipment. Second, we wanted to give the market some insight into our future development plans, so we had several machines on dislay that are new, or recently released, plus two concept machines, in the form of the L912OF wheel loader and the LG6460E excavator.

I’ve been kayak fishing out of a Old Town Predator PDL Kayak for roughly a year.

I’ve been kayak fishing out of a Old Town Predator PDL Kayak for roughly a year. I considered writing a review a few months ago, but I wanted to make absolutely certain that I put it in every situation imaginable before sharing my opinions. Fast-forward to now and my verdict is in: This is one tough and easy to use kayak. At no point in the past year have I babied my Predator PDL. I have run it aground, I have slid it in and out of my messy truck bed and into remote ponds and rivers littered with jagged rock and vegetation and I have stored it outdoors for the entire time I’ve owned it. I wanted to know for certain that this kayak could handle whatever a diehard angler threw at it. I’m going to explain what I’ve learned about this kayak. If you’re considering getting into kayak fishing or even upgrading your rig, I’ll include plenty of information to help you make an informed decision. This has been one of the biggest benefits of owning the Old Town Predator PDL. One of the most exciting aspects of fishing for me has always been finding those hidden honey holes nobody else knows about; this kayak has certainly allowed me to do that.  I have an...

“I never dreamed we’d own a home in the Bahamas—I still have to pinch myself,” says

“I never dreamed we’d own a home in the Bahamas—I still have to pinch myself,” says Chassity Evans, an Indiana-born, flash-a-grin-over-the-shoulder kind of gal (think a 21st-century Mary Tyler Moore, but blonde and with better shoes). She’s the mind behind popular lifestyle and design blog Look Linger Love, and this rosy nonchalance is what makes her so magnetic. It’s part of the reason, anyway: The other half is that she knows how to spot a gem. But her discovery on Harbour Island was different than the sartorial selections she delivers daily. In the first place, the mid-1800s limestone-block home wasn’t on anyone’s “New and Now” list when she found it three years ago. The original 1,500-square-foot island Loyalist cottage hadn’t been renovated since sometime in the 1970s. But more importantly, her connection to it was more visceral than visual. Chassity and her husband, Josh, had been vacationing in the Bahamas for a couple of years and were smitten with Harbour Island’s pink-sand beaches and Dunmore Town’s quaint, historic vibe. “It reminded me of Charleston, where we live,” she says. They beg...

The number of farms in Williamson County increased for the first time in two decades

The Park at Harlinsdale Farm in Franklin used to be a fairly large farm, but now it’s a park. / File photo The number of farms in Williamson County rose from 1,160 in 2012 to 1,224 in 2017, an increase of about 6% That’s according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s census of agriculture, which is conducted every five years. The USDA released the results of the 2017 census last month. The number of acres operated also increased during the same period from 138,782 acres in 2012 to 141,868 acres in 2017, an increase of about 2%. The nation as a whole saw slight declines in the number of farmers and the number of acres under operation. According to data from the USDA, farms covered about 70% of Williamson County in 1959. That number was about 37% in 2017. Matt Horsman, the director of the University of Tennessee Agriculture Extension program in Williamson County, said those numbers roughly matched what he was expecting. “When you get beyond traditional ag, I think that’s where you’ll start to see quite a few things that are on the rise,” he said. “If you look across the last 20 years, you’re going to see lots of things increasing. The big traditional things, you might see thos...
