I stay reasonably cool by getting around the City by bicycle (wearing sports sandals helps), especially along the Hudson greenway. The warmth actually feels pleasant enough outdoors--The worst part is returning to a steamy apartment at day's end.

The heat in the City isn't nearly as oppressive as the City's motor traffic, which besides being an obnoxious year-round polluting menace has the effect of raising the summer heat index even further.

On the second segment above titled "What We Can Learn From Hot Cutlures" (sic - please correct the spelling to "Cultures"), please replace the incorrect stream m3u and its corresponding links. The correct matching stream m3u URL is:
The incorrect stream m3u URL and its corresponding links that appear with the second segment are a repeat of the first segment titled "How Does Your Body Handle Overheating?".
That incorrect, repeating stream m3u URL is:
Thank you.

I would especially like to know how hot cultures deal with heat,( without going through the whole discussion on heat), but the gagits on your wesite ( red lines with arrow) don'twork on my computer. Is the problem from your transmission or from my computer?
