Meet the Cycle Squad Maniaccs: DBlocks, MoBlocks, Twisted700, and ArtBMX.

They're a group of Harlem bike riders who found fame posting videos of themselves on social media in which they pulled wheelies for blocks and swerved centimetres away from oncoming traffic.

The Maniaccs are extremely popular on Instagram and were even featured in an ASAP Ferg music video.

This being said, they can also raise the ire of drivers and police with their gravity-defying stunts.

What drives the group? "Taking over the street and putting kids on bikes," said DBlocks

They give young people in the neighbourhood free bikes and teach them how to ride.

"I feel like I'm always a big brother to them," said Twisted700. "Sometimes family members don't have enough time to go out there and teach their kids actually how to ride."

Using social media they've turned their style of riding into a movement.

En comparación con otros cachorros, a ‘Samwise’ no le gustan mucho los paseos. No se mueve cuando su dueño Daniel Merrable le pregunta si quiere dar un paseo el 19 de mayo.
El labrador de ocho meses puede pensar en otras cosas que hacer, como dormir boca arriba con una de sus patas en el aire, como se ve en este video subido a Twitter.
Su dueño, Daniel Merrable, contó a Storyful cómo convence a Samwise para que abandone su piso de Glasgow: "Normalmente tengo que sacarlo de nuestro apartamento con golosinas que colocamos en los escalones".
Según Daniel, una vez que Samsagaz es persuadido de salir, usualmente se divierte.

New’ technology to blame for subway delays that crippled rush-hour service on March 15, MTA says

Published at: 2018-04-18

The MTA released a report on April 17 about the
signal failure from March 15 in Brooklyn.

The report details the causes of and explains how
it will avoid similar incidents in the future.

The signal failure led to serious delays on the A,
C, D, E, F, G and M lines.

The interlocking signal system used at the Bergen St.
station was relatively new.

The signal system was installed in 2006.

New technology in that system is equipped
with enhanced safety features.

When failures are detected by the system, we cannot “force” the system,
which keeps New Yorkers safe but can cause significant delays, to
behave differently.
--MTA Press Release

The MTA said it will use its experience with the
Bergen St. signal to improve its operations.

Next month, we’ll release our five-year modernization plan.
The computer-based interlocking system at Bergen Street was the first of its kind installed in New York City, and we have gathered great learnings over the past twelve years that are now informing our modernization plan and our procurement requirements moving forward.
