Cycling to work: major new study suggests health benefits are staggering
We found that cycling to work was associated with a 41% lower risk of dying overall compared to commuting by car or public transport. Cycle commuters had a 52% lower risk of dying from heart disease and a 40% lower risk of dying from cancer. They also had 46% lower risk of developing heart disease and a 45% lower risk of developing cancer at all.

WebSockets, caution required!
This, so much.
There are very valid technical reasons many of the biggest sites on the Internet have not adopted them. Twitter use HTTP/2 + polling, Facebook and Gmail use Long Polling. Saying WebSockets are the only way and the way of the future, is wrongheaded. HTTP/2 may end up winning this battle due to the huge amount of WebSocket connections web browsers allow, and HTTP/3 may unify the protocols
