A few tips for safe biking: 

Ride with the flow of traffic; stop at stop signs; wear bright clothes; use lights on your bike; wear a helmet; do not wear headphones. When you reach your destination be sure to lock your bike with a U-type lock! Additionally, take advantage of the NUPD Bike Registry program for added security.

Ask a Roaming Huskyask
Dear Roaming Husky  
Dear Roaming Husky,
It's starting to get hot in my apartment and I don't have AC. How can I stay cool?
-Uncomfortably Hot

Dear Uncomfortably Hot,
Even without a window unit or central AC, there are plenty of ways to stay cool during warm summer months. You can create good air circulation by opening your windows and facing one fan blowing in with another blowing out. Also, keep your blinds closed during the day to keep the temperature down.
