Trikke Bikee Balance Bike (Blue)
The Bikee Balance Bike by Trikke provides kids 2 to 5 years of age an easier way to get comfortable and confident on two wheels. Trikke Tech's chief designer learned how great balance bikes were when he got a couple for his own 2 year old twins. The balance bike proved to be a fun way for his kids to get their bike confidence rolling! Later, he decided that Trikke can market a nice version of this effective concept. This version of the balance bike has been marketed in Europe, but is just debuting in the US. This product withstands the rigors of children extremely well. Airless tires make this a great, low maintenence choice for your kid's pre-bike riding days!
Student College Report " University of British Columbia "
Student A Major: Mathematics Student B Major: Political Science. Student C Major: international Business. What are some stereotypes about University of British Columbia students? Smart students! UBC is ranked the top university in the province and one of the top universities in the country; therefore this is the school that many local teenagers aim to get into. They view UBC students as intelligent and some appear impressed when meeting a UBC student. “Wow! You go to UBC! You’re so smart!". -A UBC students are stereotyped as being either very outdoorsy and sports oriented or ultra liberal, politically correct hippies. -B Coming from the US, I was surprised to see how different the Canadian universities were organized. Generally, the university is broken into faculty and these faculties break up the student body. A student is more commonly associated by faculty than by university. I am a commerce student as oppose to an engineering or arts student. There are many faculties, but the token faculties, arts, commerce, science and engineering, take on the most stereotypes as they are the most known. Commerce: Are considered ambitious and very competitive Arts: This is a big mix as there are 10,000 arts students. Because the coursework is relatively lighter than the comparing programs, it can be considered sometimes be considered as a “lighter” program Engineering: considered nerds for the heavy course load and challenging classes. This is the type of program you must be naturally bright in or else it will be difficult to keep up in the material. Science: Another very challenging program. Students decide majors in third year (junior) and get first choice based on GPA; hence, students are kept very busy in this program. -C Are the stereotypes accurate? Indeed their grades aren’t bad, but that’s only one side of UBC students! In fact, many UBC students focus on the wide range of outdoor activities available. We love playing sports, hanging out with friends, giving back to the community… basically UBC students are well-rounded and live a well-balanced life! -A Both of these stereotypes are true but only represent a portion of the student body. Appreciating the outdoors is inevitable when one lives in a city that grants you access to both the beaches and the mountains. However, sheer size and location of UBC lends itself to such a diverse population that these stereotypes only hold true to part of the population. -B To a degree there is truth in the stereotypes. However, I wouldn’t generalize as I doubt all 10,000 Arts students are taking a “light” program. I can imagine pre-law and international relations/politics to be very competitive like commerce. Even though Commerce is considered competitive, it works well with the faculty. Last year I had 6 group projects for my 5 classes and it is reassuring to know you will have an ambitious student willing to help get the work done. Engineering condenses 5 years worth of material in 4 years, so yes; I would say it is still very challenging. I have friends who were successful in the high school IB program who still found engineering challenging. -C The Big Picture UBC is like a city of about 44000 students from all around the world, but students do build their own smaller community through participation in clubs, residence sports teams, student governments, etc. The school is the most sustainable in the country and you will find eco-friendly facilities everywhere. For example, trash cans often come in sets of 3: compost, recycling, and garbage. Students are encouraged to bike on campus and take transit to off-campus locations via the bike co-op program and the U-pass (which is a transit pass for UBC students to have unlimited access to buses, sky trains, sea buses, and more!) The Vancouver campus is absolutely gorgeous. It’s got beautiful views of the mountains and ocean; it’s got a few absolutely amazing gardens; it’s got wonderful beaches; it’s just great! -A The best thing about UBC is the location. Even though it persistently rains six months out of the year, nothing beats Vancouver in the summer. You would be hard pressed to find another city that not only has one of the best universities in the world but also allows you to go skiing and hit the beach on the same day! The university isn’t in the middle of the city so you get that community vibe once you’re on campus but we’re also just a 20 minute bus ride away from downtown Vancouver so getting bored simply isn’t possible. The one thing I would change about UBC is all of the construction that goes on ALL the time. The size of UBC can be a little daunting (40,000 students) for prospective students. It takes a little getting used to but overall I felt that UBC was just the right size for me. There are so many activities and clubs at your disposal. Even a moustache club if you’re interested in that kind of thing. UBC has consistently been rated one of the top 50 universities in the world. There are three thin
Lighting: SB600 with CTO gel into shoot through brolly camera left. SB600 behind and camera right with red gel. Fired By CLS. Tungsten White Balance for the groovy colour shift. I was after a much wider shot here, but after gelling the flash and putting a brolly in front of the 600, power was at an all time low, had to get the brolly all the way to the edge of the frame. Could have upped the ISO but I wanted the sky as dark as possible. Damn these tiny flashes. And I also wanted some more logs in the shot, but 5 blokes came and sat on them and ate fried chicken. grrrr
