Green Transportation And How It Can Fit Into Your Life

Posted on: April 4th, 2013 by Pulse 1 Comment

Green TransportationAs more Americans look for ways to cut down on the cost of everyday living as well as live in a greener, more environmentally responsible way, transportation is one of the things that first comes to mind. Living in a metropolitan area usually provides you with several options for getting around. It’s easy enough to hail a cab, take a subway, or simply walk to your destination. However in many cities, public transportation is not so convenient. In places like that, you may have to rely on other alternatives, like scooters, if you’re one of the many looking to reduce your carbon footprint and also save a penny or two.

Electric and human-powered scooters are increasing in popularity for city dwellers who need quick, convenient transportation around town. Many are also choosing rideshares for regular, daily transportation to and from work or school. There is some debate over which method creates less pollution but no matter which you choose, in the end you’ll be making a positive impact. With so many choices available for getting around in modern cities, it’s a lot easier to lead a responsible, environmentally conscious lifestyle.

Would More Scooter Friendly City Design Help Or Hinder?

Posted on: April 1st, 2013 by Pulse No Comments

Scooter FriendlyThis is a dilemma that we are starting to face in today’s reality of traffic congestion and over population of cities around the nation and world for that matter.  Would making cities more scooter friendly help decrease the issues of traffic congestion that seem to be bogging down the cities and property of large metropolitan areas like San Francisco, Los Angeles and New York?

Sources say that increasing the availability to ride scooters safely would decrease the congestion we all experience on the highways and freeways and would certainly decrease the eco-footprint that we all make when we drive large SUVs and vehicles that emit carbon monoxide into the atmosphere.

Electric scooters would certainly help decrease all the problems that we experience because of the overuse of automobiles.  An electric scooter would be able to get you to the train or bus that can get you to work, and still it would be mobile enough that it would not hinder your daily routine.

This is a situation that should be strongly considered moving forward because the reliance on gas and oil in this country has reached an all time high, and doesn’t seem to be ebbing off anytime soon.

Scooter GamesA New Approach To Education

Education is one of the main concerns of parents everywhere.  There is a large amount of concern that is devoted to the activities and studies that are done within the schools that we send our children to.

This is a just cause, we want the best for our children and are concerned about things that will shape their minds and make them more or less impressionable to certain aspects in life.  There is a new fad that is coming up that could change the way physical education is approached in schools.  Scooter games are slowly being integrated into physical education classes around the nation.

This is a great opportunity for children to grow and experience an outside the box type approach to physical education.  There are many children who have received scooters as presents for Christmas or their birthdays and what better way to utilize them than to have scooters games in P.E.?

Realistically there are many different ways that you can incorporate scooters into games within the curriculum and it is a great way for kids to stay connected and interested in what they are allowed to do.  The fact that schools are staying relevant is a great move and it seems to be a win-win situation.

What Happened To Exercise?

Posted on: March 19th, 2013 by Pulse 1 Comment

In today’s day and age it is difficult to get our children to exercise.  There is so much competition with the television programs, the video games and other activities that children are presented with.  Exercise seems to take a back seat to all of these different activities.

What Happened To ExerciseThere has to be a way to get them to exercise, and the slither scooter is one such way.  There are many ways to incorporate physical activity into your children’s daily routine, and a scooter would certainly increase the level of physical activity that they were taking and increase the level of fun that they were having.

Another way to have them exercise is to allow them to use the Pulse Slither as a mode of transportation.  Getting to and from locations is slightly more difficult when you are younger.  To be honest, it was a major achievement to get where the destination was when we were all children.

It was a means of expressing a level of independence and truly gave us the feeling that we were able to accomplish the goals that we were set out to accomplish.  The physical activity was more of a side note, but it was something that was always taken into account when any of us were thinking of getting somewhere.

Reflecting back on the times of youth, it seemed that exercise was always involved.  There was always a better place to be, and it was going to take some time to get there because of the bike, slither scooter or skateboard that was being used to reach the ultimate goal of getting where we wanted to be.  Today however, it seems that the priorities have changed and there are many more video games than there are ways to get around for kids.

When the sun is shining a beach visit is always fun, walking around the beach area can be an enjoyable time for all.  Pulse scooters zoom by as you are walking on the boardwalk enjoying the sun and the surf.  The beach is a great place to get some fresh air and let the sun warm you up as you marvel at the waves.  Skateboarders will cruise by as you walk to enjoy a wonderful outdoor meal and you like the look of the scenery.

During the summertime it seems life just is easier, the warmth is great but not overwhelming, and the fun times seem to be at your fingertips.  Seeing people on electric scooters makes you wonder where they acquired those interesting contraptions.  No matter, you have a date with the ocean ahead!  There truly is nothing like having a sunny beach day, it is a feel good type feeling that can be achieved during the summer time in epic fashion.

Summer can afford people the luxury to relax and enjoy the time that they have to work with.  Kids can play on scooters, adults can as well if they so choose, and the idea can permeate through to your very core.  The fact is, that when you are enjoying summertime life seems to just ease by and it is not as difficult as it probably has been during the winter months.

Think Scooters Are Just For Fun? They Can Be Used For Education As Well

Scooters And EducationThink Scooters Are Just For Fun? They Can Be Used For Education As Well

Scooters have been around a little while so we can now see children on them frequently out in the streets and in skateparks across the nation.  The interesting thing about scooters is that they are now being used for an educational purpose.

There are many schools that seem to be using scooters to incorporate exercise into their lesson plans.  Learning about different consequences of low frequency of exercise is one such lesson.  Teachers are setting up lesson plans to help children understand the great effects of exercise and how that leads to a healthy heart and healthy living.

With all of the ways that we need to compete for the attention of our children due to the increased popularity of video games we all could take a few notes from these outside the box ideas about physical education.

The incorporation of physical exercise into different aspects of education seems to be a slightly obvious overture, but yet it is more or less about the way that it is being integrated into education, and what the children are learning.  The fact that we have teachers that are also concerned about the physical health of our children is a great feeling and we should all be so lucky.
