Olympic hockey is more than just a game; it’s an international platform for worldwide entertainment. Sports are a strong part of culture and this year Russia is hosting the winter Olympics making international hockey a headline for world news. In Russia people take pride in their countries historic hockey teams, and rich hockey history. Here in the US hockey has been growing rapidly in recent years, and seems to gain much more popularity during the winter Olympics.

Yesterday Russia’s international hockey team played against team USA it what turned out to be a “Miracle” type game. Back in 1980 the rivalry began when the highly favored Eastern Europeans were defeated by the young and naive college students who represented the United States of America. This time around there was a similar result, but a much different playing field. T.J Oshie became an American hero when in overtime against a favored Russian roster he scored 4 of 6 penalty shots to give the Americans an exciting victory in a Miracle type environment in Sochi, Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympics. America is getting more sporty with our recent Olympic win. Come check out Bikes and Hikes and become more sporty while being able to see one of the most beautiful cities in the United States, Los Angeles.

USC Bike Tour with Bikes and Hikes LA.

Last Sunday, The USC Student Activity Center arranged a bike tour with Bikes and Hikes LA, and it made me super excited because I could never imagine getting anywhere in LA without a car!

Our tour guides Leandre and Brian took us to the Beverly Hills’ Greystone Mansion, and I thought the mansion was so big that it could have been a castle. It was so big and beautiful and even has a sneaky secret emergency tunnel that leads to the Sunset Boulevard attached to it.

We were able to go sightseeing through West Hollywood, Beverly Hills, Bel Air, Westwood, Brentwood, Santa Monica, Venice Beach, Marina Del ray, and Culver city all in just one day through our LA in a Day bike tour of Los Angeles. We were able to see many stunning houses and former homes of celebrities, such as Michael Jackson, Tom Cruise, Nicole Kidman, and the home where Marilyn Monroe dyed her hair blonde in! Biking through Beverly Hills was truly an eye-opening moment and the most incredible sightseeing experience I have had while in Los Angeles.

However, Beverly Hills, like its name, has many hills! After our tour through the Hollywood area, our group finally got to enjoy the downhill slides, and soon after we arrived at Santa Monica! Santa Monica had a very different vibe. Everyone was so fit and tan, and restaurants were extremely healthy and organic! Our group sat down at the beach and enjoyed a very healthy pita meal before continuing on the rest of our LA adventure!

Later, we biked to Venice Beach and saw the hidden Venice Canals, which are so beautifully built making the ride truly enjoyable. Afterwards, we biked along the riverbank to Culver City and back eventually back to West Hollywood. During the trip, I could not stop taking mental notes of how funny Leandre and Brian were and how they told us so many stories about the history of LA and cool places of where to go in city. LA in a Day was the best way to be able to see and experience LA, and I cannot wait for more tours to come in the future!

 

And here are some photos of our amazing trip!!! LA in a Day USC

It does not matter if you are already into meditation or if you are a skeptical about it.

Fact is, that everyone says meditation is so good, but do we actually know what it really does with us?

Let's check it out.

First of all it can be said that mediation is can be described as focused attention or mindful meditation. This means to focus on one specific thing, which could be breathing, a sensation in your body or a particular object outside.

Meditation can affect us within different ways:

> It makes you focus better. Through meditation you will experience the difference between focusing on something and drifting away, therefore you improve your focus also while not mediating.

> Your anxiety might decrease. Meditation loosens the connection between yourself and scary and upsetting sensations.

> You get more creative.

> Your compassion and empathy will increase.

> You will get a better memory

> You will be more calm and less stressed. 

If you would like to know more about the scientific background of meditation and how you can start meditating check out this link from Fastcompany.

Maybe you have heard already about your carbon footprint. When you take a vacation you increase this carbon footprint even more. Therefore, we want to show you the best ways to travel eco friendly!
Before you leave:
> Try to use as much public transport as possible
> If you drive, try to car pool to get as many people in the car as possible
> If you have to fly, book direct, since take off and landing requires a massive amount of fuel, therefore flying without a stopover is more eco- friendly
> Before you leave the house, make sure that you adjust the heating and cooling systems and that all appliances are unplugged. Even when electronic devises are on stand- by they use electricity
What to take with you:
> Travel size packages might be quick and easy, but they have a big influence on the environment. Preffered are re- usable containers
> Take a re-usable water bottle with you
> Travel light and take only what you need.This makes it easieir while using public transport and get around in general. And who knows, maybe you even have space for some souvenirs. 
Some easy and applicable tips, which help to make the world a better place!

Norman Foster had the brilliant idea to build a 136 miles long network of bike paths above railway lines so that commuters could glide to work over rooftops.

This idea might sound very crazy at this time, but one day it might be part of a regular commute to work. The route could be entered through 200 different entrances and would be up to 50 feet wide which would give over 12000 cyclists per hour the chance to go from one destination to another.

"Lord Foster, who says that cycling is one of his great passions, describes the plan as “a lateral approach to finding space in a congested city.""

This networks, would be a perfect way to integrate more car free alternatives into the city and to give bicycles a save environment to ride.

Check out this article from the guardian to read the whole article about Norman Foster's idea.
