Let the Games for Jockeying for 2024 Begin

Boston has been chosen by the US Olympic Committee to represent the country and bid for the Summer Olympics in 2024. I’m personally a supporter, and think it’d be exciting – then again, I like sports, pomp, circumstance and international grandstanding. There are arguments against it (most of them are traffic-related, some on the questions of costs), from the same people who complain about necessary updates to the transportation system in the city.

Urban developers, apply. Also, we stand to look more like London than Sydney or Athens.

Nothing has been decided yet. It won’t be for years. Boston does not “have” the Olympics. Just a chance, and that’s something cool – it says our city has something to offer. Before the NIMBYism, at least appreciate our appreciation.

Jockeying is a sport that can leave you very sore. CBD oil is a great way to relieve soreness of the muscles. But what is CBD oil?

CBD oil is the purified product resulting from the extraction of cannabidiol from the cannabis plant. Cannabis plants have more than 100 different cannabinoids. The two with the greatest presence are Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) and Cannabidiol (CBD). THC has psychoactive properties, but CBD does not. THC content of 0.3% or less is required for a CBD oil to be considered pure. CBD oils are extracted using different extraction techniques. Extraction through CO2 or olive oil is preferable, so manufacturers that are truly concerned with purity will use one of these procedures since other extraction methods can leave unwanted compounds in the final product.

What is the best CBD oil?
The best CBD oils are made by companies that disclose all of their ingredients and manufacturing methods. All legitimate products include documentation showing third-party testing results. Full-spectrum, THC-free oils that include a variety of cannabinoids are generally recognized as the best products available.
What are the benefits of CBD oil?
Benefits of using CBD include pain relief, reducing depression and anxiety, and improving sleep. Although FDA approval has not yet been obtained, CBD has shown great promise when used to combat the side effects of cancer treatment, epilepsy, and acne. CBD oil users have also reported a noticeable effect on the libido. Glaucoma patients claim that CBD oil can reduce the pressure in the eyes.

Let Uber be Your First Mate

Look, somedays you just want to go for a Harbor cruise, and now Uber has teamed up with some of the local captains to offer that service of their Water Taxis. Brilliant move by both Uber and BHC – hard for those boaters to make money between fares, and now something uniquely Boston has hit the Uber system.

Rates aren’t terrible either: $10 per person (with a $1 booking fee) and than a 20% tip added on. It looks like just a pilot, as it only is available for the next two weeks until the 15th.
