@reneeckim that's really cool!!!~ and i totally understand what you mean by being a tourist by walking around taking photos hahah I do the same thing! so may i ask which one do you prefer then? the city? or your neighbourhood? hhahahaha
@ameliasantos10 I actually live here! (not in manhattan, but in another borough called Queens). I'm attending college in midtown, so it's hard to appreciate the city's vibe at all times. Usually it's extremely crowded where I live and go to school. Whenever I want to feel the city afresh, I pull out my camera and wander around as if I am a tourist (hehehe).
@saharhyunjoon NYC is an amazing city to live within. Thanks for your kind comment!
the 6th photo panorama looks amazing!! so are you there on holiday ?? @reneeckim

USA Involvements with Korea
Que tal peeps! Have you ever wondered what relationship USA has with Korea? Well I have. After doing some research I can understand the relationships USA shares with Korea (South and North). In my last card I shared some information about why North Korea and South Korea have beef, or conflict with each other and how USA plays a role in this relationship. Click here to read it.

Writer Jessamine aka Social Media Event Organizer/Planner aka @amobigbang In a nutshell WWII divided Korea. The communist government countries like the Soviet Union occupied the sorthern area of Korea while the USA a Democratic country occupied the southern area of Korea. The 38th parallel is the borderline that separated these two areas. North Korea crossed over this line with the intention to force unification. South Korea and the USA was not having it. Thus the Korean War came about. USA fought side by side with Southern Koreans to push for democracy for Southern Koreans. Both sides North and South fought hard during this war and many lives were lost. This war was to close to say who won since many lives were lost on both ends. This is why we now have South and North Korea and why the cultures are drastically different. America culture has had a huge impact with the development of South Korean politics and their society as a hold. Many say that if America did not have an influential on South Korean culture we would not have Kpop, Kfashion, Kdramas, Kia, Samsung, LG, and Hyundai. Even now the USA still support South Korea as they deal with conflicts with North Korea. FIGHTING TO THOSE IN THE MILITARY!! THANK YOU TO THOSE WHO HAVE FOUGHT IN COMBAT AND FOUGHT DURING THE KOREAN WAR, WWII, AND ANY WAR FOR THAT MATTER!! Source This video explains it all. I will say that this video is made from an American perspective.

Carbon Wheels Clincher
Carbon Wheels Clincher Bike wheels of quality can change the wheels from sluggish and laborious to effortless and thrilling. The road wheelsets come in different forms like a clincher, tubular and tubeless with matching tires. There are clincher and tubeless wheelsets. A clincher in any wheel that is suitable with non-tubular tires. The word clincher gets its origin from the tires as they clinch to the rim of the wheel along with a bead of hard rubber. Generally, bicycle rims are clincher rims to be used with clincher tires. These tires possess a wire or fiber bead that interlocks with flanges in the rim. A segregated airtight inner tube confined by the rim supports the tire carcass and manages the bead lock. In case the inner part of the rim where the inner tube fits have spokes, holes should be concealed by a rim tape or strip which is made from rubber, cloth, or tough plastic. This safeguards the inner tube. Carbon wheels are both carbon fiber and aluminum. History In 1998 Lew Composites brought into being the first full-carbon clincher rim. Company owner Paul Lew an enthusiastic triathlete desired the same properties of weight savings and aerodynamics that a carbon tubular could offer but through ease and versatility of a clincher. Carbon Wheels Clincher has only a decade ago made the presence felt in the market. The new and old brands have entered the market offering rim depth, weights, and prices. The rim variants now come with a clincher, tubular and tubeless tires accompanied by rim brakes and disc brakes. Upgrading to carbon clincher wheels Upgrading the wheels is a popular trend among riders. Indeed, high-quality tires can effectively improve bike ride. Upgrading can also lead to a decrease in weight and better dependability. Deep-section rims help you move faster. Most bikers understand that aerodynamic is more important compared to weight. The choice lies between carbon wheels clincher, tubular, or tubeless and corresponding tires. Wheels indeed gain from human touch. Hand constructed wheels are still better than those built totally by machine. Consider the following factors for this. · Deepness-suited to rim-the principle states that deeper the wheel the better it is for aero performance. However, steep climb and yaw angle are variability's that differ to this principle. Another factor of influence is the weight of the rider and the quantum of watts produced when plying on a flat and smooth surface. In case the wheels are very deep for your weight the rider's competence to guide and maneuverability will be affected. · Wideness- wider rim induces a more satisfying ride. Wider rims compute a few millimeters to the width of the tire. Ensure that the dimensions of fork, seat-say and chain stay authorization, so the new wheel and tire collection fits the bike. · Unity-most road bikes are comparatively constant as regards dimensions of most bikes. With coming of disc brakes has supplemented a variety to hub dimensions in the bike industry. Thus, the carbon clincher wheels you decide to buy is compatible with the bike we possess. · Quantum in speeds-generally wheels possess compatible hub cassettes. However, inspect if the wheel you choose fits the cassette body. The quality of the carbon clincher wheel will decide its lasting property and comprehensive quality of the wheelset. The endurance of the rim, hub, and spoke are important factors. Generally, the hubs in carbon clinchers are of superior quality and lasting. The spokes are not costly and replace is easy.
Carbon Road Bike Frames
Carbon Road Bike Frames Not all carbon road bike frames are made in Asia. The frame is the heart and soul of the bicycle. All components are secured together into a single cohesive whole. Thus, buyers when selecting the correct frame, the basic material matters a lot. A good carbon road bike frame is a combination of carbon fibers of different types which are used in different places in a frame for extremely specific purposes. Carbon road bike frames are used by cyclists and in the racing world. When out to buy a new bike, the market will offer multiple bike frame material and choice becomes difficult. The alternative is between aluminum, carbon fiber, titanium, and steel. Carbon road bike frames are manufactured through the weaving of carbon fiber strands and allowing it to set within a hard epoxy resin. These are light, sturdy, and reasonably stiff. The material can be crafted into aerodynamic shapes. Features of the carbon frames. Comfort-ride quality has been accepted as beneficial for carbon frames. The carbon can be devised to be stiff in some directions and yielding in others. This makes the carbon frame convenient over bumps and rough roads but stiff sufficiently for efficient pedalling and vertically compliant. Carbon by its very nature lessens vibration when riding. The tires and touch points also influence the comfort level. Weight- a lighter bike can better the riding experience. It is possible to construct exceptionally light and capable bikes out of carbon. The strength-to-weight ratio in carbon is better. All the carbon is not equal. There are grades in carbon. The lower-grade carbon consists of more fillers leading to cost-cutting but enhancing the weight. That is why carbon is the best choice. The higher-grade carbon through expert engineering brings out carbon bikes that are strong but intensely light. Frame only contributes to a part of the bike's total weight. The remaining weight is made up of components. Wheels specifically will make a big difference in bike weight and its heaviness when riding. Receptivity and stiffness-the bike must be laterally stiff and vertically compliant. When pedals are pushed hard, or the corner is to be maneuvered a good frame requires stiffness to oppose the torsional forces so that torsional forces help in handling the bike. Technically carbon as a material is best suited for the purpose. Durability- most riders are fearful of damaging an expensive carbon frame. Carbon fiber strength to weight ratio is higher compared to steel. Carbon has limitless fatigue life but is likely to get damaged by the direct impact such as a big crash. Carbon can be repaired with ease and the old becomes as good as new. Expenditure-carbon is expensive as it is produced through the more labor-intensive method. Every frame needs a committed mold which adds to the cost. Carbon fiber layout is possible by hand. Components are easy to upgrade than frames. Visual examination-carbon fiber unlocked new potential in cycle design. This has made the bike curves smooth and swooping. The bike is beautiful and appealing. Carbon delivers the performance of many high-end carbon fiber frames.

Carbon Wheelset
Carbon Wheelset Carbon wheelset made its appearance in the early nineties as the manufacturers began experimenting with the material which was used with the reputation of high-performance in Formula One. In the field of biking, it made an entry in 1989. Some categories of riders mostly racers the attraction of carbon wheels is beckoning. The acceptance of factory constructed wheelsets has encouraged its use by consumers. Upgrading a wheelset is now an easy job for customers and detail specifications can be compared with ease. The carbon wheelset is the market innovator right on the top as a choice. It is so because it improves the rider's capability and performance. The cost structure is significant still the carbon wheelset market has developed significantly surpassing in sales to lower-priced wheelsets. The consumers have achieved new gratitude for the aerodynamic performance of wheels. The four components of a wheel are · Rim · Hub · Spokes · Nipples Most of the carbon wheelset is purchasable in tubular and clincher form. The rims are fitted with rim brakes and some with disc brakes. The package is inclusive of a disc wheel. The rim height and width differ or else shaped depending on the model. The front wheels come with 16-20 spokes. Lightweight wheels are synonymous with high-quality carbon wheelset. The production of carbon wheelset is considered a form of art because lightweight experts have mastered the art of engineering meticulously. The construction experts visualize and build carbon wheelset which is lightweight in construction has stability, stiffness and comfort thus establishing compatibility between rider, road bike and its wheelset. The marketing agents also offer single wheel like a spare wheel. Special features The carbon wheelset needs less energy to accelerate the rotating mass and at the same time is very stable. Thus, carbon wheelset is a combination of · Aerodynamics-this will minimize drag very much so will make a noticeable difference at higher speeds. · Crosswind resistance · Stiffness-greater than an aluminium wheelset · Handling · Weight lightness-the lightest carbon wheelset possesses tubular rims. This wheel will be particularly good for climbers. · Braking performance-good carbon wheels can transform the ride of a bike. The bike has a more responsive nature. · Speed- carbon wheelset provide a smoother ride even on rough road surfaces · Agility · Stylish-the bike looks sleek when rolling on a pair of deep-section carbon wheelset. Several bikers invest in these wheels solely because it looks good. However, the layout method involves lining the mould with sheets of carbon fibre for curing. This whole process is manually done leading to increase of time and cost of manufacturing. The spoke fabrication and weight distribution of the carbon wheelset ensures total curve precision. The carbon wheelset is less likely to twist and no watt is destroyed but it is converted into acceleration quickly. Laminated spokes More so with light carbon wheelset the spoking factor of specific significance. The spokes are unified into the carbon rim and the wheel stays practically stiff. The spokes can withstand a traction force and guarantee a high level of safety on day-to-day riding. The wheels should be used as specified and, in that case, will last a long time.
Triathlon Wheels
Triathlon Wheels Wheels are an important piece of equipment on your bike along with tyres that aid in covering all the terrain that you decide to ride. A triathlon wheels bike is like a road bike but permits a very aerodynamic position. The triathlon bike is awfully specific and is versatile as can be used on all types of terrain. The choice of such a bike is based on leisure, regular or competition. Triathlon wheels bikes display design challenges but still look glamorous and stylish. This bike form 60% of the collection in a race. The bike has endurance, strength, and mental toughness. At present triathlon-specific bikes have endurance, strength, and mental toughness. It also has varying cockpit set-ups, different geometry, and advanced aerodynamics. These are in demand now. Triathletes are required to be comfortable for prolonged periods in an aerodynamic position. The difference between triathlon wheel bikes and road bikes is based on recruiting different muscle groups and supporting comfort without giving up performance. The choice of the frame In case you are a beginner pick a classic road bike. Its design frame makes it possible to possess an advanced position which is comfortable. The aluminium frame is the most common material on an entry-level to mid-range bikes. In case the biker uses carbon frame that will be more rigid and yield a good energy output. For more experienced competitors the choice is an aero road bike with very wide and profiled tubes on the frame. It enhances a very leaning forward position in increase aerodynamics. However, this bike will be heavier with reduced comfort compared to a road bike. The speed choice will depend on the time trial bike. It has a revealing geometry and good aerodynamics. It is a frame with more emphasised seat tube angle and low seat post and a hanger. The wind-cheating wheels reduce drag and help a cyclist ride faster. Disc brakes in triathlon bike Aerodynamics is the main constituent of triathlon bikes. Generally, triathlon courses are flat with very few hills. Reducing aerodynamic drag is of paramount importance to triathletes as it means reduced effort to sustain speed. · The aerodynamic drag is enhanced. · The weight is increased. · The braking performance is not increased. · The braking power is superb. · Easy to adjust and maintain. · The lifespan of the wheels is increased. · The stiffness is also increased. Due to the dangers presented by using a disc wheel on the road, front disc wheels are prohibited in road cycling and triathlon. Minimizing aerodynamic drag is of utmost importance to triathletes as it leads to the reduced effort required to sustain speed. The wheel and tire interface are one that wheel designers pay close attention to. Wider tires have been accepted to be better than narrower ones and the wheels are more aerodynamically optimized for wider tires. The rims are getting wider. Take care that aerodynamic gains may not offset the increase in rolling resistance or comfort from the smaller tire. Many of the road and triathlon wheel frames manufactured today have restrictions.
