Lime Scooters

By Vaughn Lowery x Krishan Narsinghani x Alexandria Baiz

Across the globe, Lime scooters are the newest ride for transportation and commute. One may have seen these green-tinted electric motor scooters zooming down major city roads in Los Angeles, Paris and even university campuses. With over 100 markets and 5 countries there is plenty of supply, and all one needs to do is download the Lime app to find the nearest scooter. With LED front lamps, green recessed lighting and red LED taillights for nighttime riders, Limes are functional at all times of the day in major cities. Technology in automation advances as the little green boxes on each scooter contain a GPS system and 3G built-in hardware to track the location and route of each ride. Aggregating routes and location data is vital for cities so that there is proof of this pilot program performance and for future infrastructure to be aware of heavily utilized routes.

The logistics of the Lime scooters are easy to follow with instructions accessible every step of the way on the Lime app. Depending on location, (ex. California State Law) riders must be 18 and over and required to wear a helmet. Helmets are offered for free through the local business partners, which can also be found on the app. To avoid clutter on streets, users are required to submit parking photos at the end of each ride to ensure the scooter is parked responsibly. Docking stations are also being added – physical locations like Monrovia and Santa Monica will soon be paired with designated parking locations.

Rides are effortless and affordable. Costing one dollar to unlock and fifteen cents per minute, rates beat that of car share fares. Take a solo trip to get to work or visit a hot attraction with a group of friends. 360 Magazine had the opportunity of riding a group of scooters throughout Los Angeles, revealing a beautiful scenic ride for any tourist or local in the area. Explore the Ballona Creek bike path, an 8.8-mile-long waterway that extends as a shortcut from Central LA to the coast of Venice. Enjoy a traffic-free, uninterrupted riding trail that offers rest stops and views for a perfect sunny day.

Transforming the mobility of cities into a clean environment is a major win in Los Angeles, especially with limited transit systems, it’s a great alternative to keep traffic and pollution under control. Diving in further, Lime travels up to 20 miles in distance and speeds up to 14.8 MPH. Lime Access offers a 95% discount on pedal bike rides and 50% discount on electric scooter rides. Lime Access is eligible for riders who belong to any state/federally-run assistance program in order to make Lime accessible for all.

BOBBY SESSIONS DISCUSSES HIP HOP

Bobby Sessions quit his job to pursue his dream of becoming a recording artist full-time. Exactly one year later, he released his debut indie album the Law Of Attraction (LOA), a passionate and fiery project influenced by the artists he grew up on as a kid from Dallas, Texas – from Jay-Z to James Brown to N.E.R.D. The hunger he has for motivating people through his words can’t be ignored: it’s in each and every song, interview, and performance. A blistering, concentrated lyricist and speaker, Sessions is constantly focused and determined to attract the energy of those around him – whether onstage performing for fans or in the studio focused on his craft. LAO was followed by a second album, grateful, a jazzy, self-aware reminder to be thankful. “Every freedom, every privilege, every great thing happening in our lives, down to your eyesight, each breath… we should put 100% of our energy into being grateful for that,” Sessions said. His 2018 signing to Def Jam Recordings raised his profile with the arrival of “Like Me” and “Pick A Side” early in the year, followed by RVLTN – Chapter 1: The Divided States of AmeriKKKa in July. Most recently, Sessions introduced the title track to the critically acclaimed movie The Hate U Give.

Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody Soundtrack

For the first time! ever audio tracks from Queen’s legendary performance at Live Aid are being released as part of the soundtrack album to Bohemian Rhapsody, 20th Century Fox and Regency Enterprises’ forthcoming feature film celebrating the band, their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. Recorded at the historic Wembley concert in July 1985, these Live Aid songs are among the rare gems and unheard versions from the band’s rich catalogue.

 

Alongside the show-stopping Live Aid performances of “Bohemian Rhapsody,” “Radio Ga Ga,” “Hammer To Fall” and “We Are The Champions,” the album features other rare live tracks spanning Queen’s entire career, new versions of old favorites, and a choice selection of the band’s finest studio recordings. Among them are some of Queen’s biggest hits, including eleven all-time greatest anthems that reached No. 1 around the world. The track listing was announced today, September 5, 2018, which would have been Freddie’s 72nd birthday.

 

Bohemian Rhapsody will have its world premiere in the UK on October 23 before opening across the globe in early November. It stars Rami Malek as Freddie, Gwilym Lee as Brian May, Ben Hardy as Roger Taylor, Joe Mazzello as John Deacon, and Lucy Boynton as Freddie’s lifelong companion Mary Austin. The soundtrack, featuring all-original Queen recordings and vocals, will be released on CD and digital formats on October 19.

 

The 22 songs on the soundtrack were produced by Brian May and Roger Taylor, with engineering and co-production by long-time Queen studio collaborators Justin Shirley-Smith, Kris Fredriksson and Joshua J Macrae, and mastering by Adam Ayan and Bob Ludwig.

 

The key task for the team behind the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack was sourcing the most suitable versions of the band’s songs, especially live performances, to fit the screenplay’s career-spanning narrative. Their brief was not merely to produce a greatest hits playlist package but a soundtrack album to stand on its own merits, underscoring key moments in the screenplay. May, Taylor, and their co-producers worked with the filmmakers to find the best versions of each track to heighten the dramatic power of each scene.

 

Ensuring that listeners are in no doubt they are listening to a soundtrack album, Brian came up with the inspired idea that Queen should record their own arrangement of the famous 20th Century Fox Fanfare. Featuring May’s famous multi-layered guitars and Roger Taylor’s distinctive percussion, this revamped track provides a suitably flamboyant opening fanfare to both film and album.

 

The five tracks from Queen’s 21-minute performance at Live Aid on July 13, 1985, have never been released in audio form before. They’ve only ever been featured on video as a special extra on the DVD/BluRay release of Queen Rock Montreal, which features the Montreal Forum shows of November 1981. The Live Aid audio is exclusive to this new soundtrack album.

 

Other tracks on the soundtrack have been sourced from different decades and even different continents. “Fat Bottomed Girls” comes from the 1979 Paris shows, part of the Jazz world tour, and has never been released before. “Now I’m Here” was recorded at the band’s 1975 Christmas Eve show at London’s Hammersmith Odeon. And the history making duet between Freddie and Brian on “Love of My Life” comes from the Rock in Rio festival of January 1985 when 300,000 Brazilians sang along. Previously this track was only available to fans on the video releases of this performance.

 

The three remaining songs on the soundtrack will be fresh to Queen fans, old and new. “We Will Rock You” starts out as the studio version, then seamlessly blends into a live performance with audience participation. This has been created especially for the film. “Don’t Stop Me Now” features Brian’s newly recorded guitar parts and is much closer to how the band plays the track live today.

 

“Doing All Right” was originally recorded by Smile, the predecessor band to Queen that featured Brian and Roger with vocalist Tim Staffell. When Tim later left, Roger and Brian would join forces with Freddie to form Queen. Freddie’s interpretation of the song is featured on the first Queen album. To recreate the original Smile version, Brian and Roger reunited with Staffell at Abbey Road Studios to re-record “Doing All Right” for the Bohemian Rhapsody soundtrack. This session which featured Roger, Tim and Brian all singing lead vocals took place almost 50 years after the original Smile recording.

 

With record sales estimated at 300 million and counting, Queen remain evergreen rock favorites whose glorious catalogue of songs continues to thrill fans of all ages across the globe. Despite the loss of Freddie in 1991, their following has continued to grow over the decades, boosted by a new wave of fans who first discovered the band’s music through their hugely successful stage show We Will Roc! k You or via hit TV shows like Glee, American Idol and The X-Factor.

 

The Bohemian Rhapsody film and its original soundtrack album are certain to introduce Queen to a new generation of listeners, and remind existing fans just how magnificent the band was in its prime. Queen remain spectacular performers today, both live and in the studio, their songs having comfortably stood the test of time. After almost 50 years together, Queen remain one of the most exciting and beloved bands in rock history.
