Suburban Riot Clothing -

From their website... Do not mistake us for an unruly band of renegades, but don't take us too seriously. We're simply having endless fun in an otherwise serious world.  We fuse unlikely partners, enjoy planning chaos, and can be found breeding curiosity. In a world dominated by noisy gimmicks, our methods are different. We turn noise into something usable, by finding the nuances hidden in the chaos. We're part of an unusual band of rioters. These rioters are on the rise, out there building " endless _____ in an otherwise _____ world". History The founding Riot Crew was raised in the mellow Pacific Northwest. Over the years we migrated to Venice, CA, or as we call it, the heart of darkness. Sub_Urban Riot's look and feel is a result from years of influence that is both sunny hedonism, and rainy clarity.

(  -- Biking for as little as five minutes a day can help women minimize weight gain as they enter middle age, especially if they're overweight to begin with, a new study suggests. The study followed more than 18,000 premenopausal women between the ages of 25 and 42 for 16 years. During that time, the women gained an average of about 20.5 pounds. Women who started biking for just five minutes a day gained about 1.5 fewer pounds over the course of the study than similar women who didn't take up biking, the researchers found.
