Mindful : April 2013
now There are more than 100 apps available, through iTunes and the android market, that promote smoking in some way. They appear in the “lifestyle” and “health” categories of iTunes. Through Kids Garden- ing, The Home Depot has provided $410,000 over the past 7 years to establish gardens in schools and youth facili- ties. Children—250,000 of them in more than 1,000 locations— have learned to grow vegetables and native plants in these “edible schoolyards.” NYPD cop is spotted buying a homeless man shoes and socks (value: $75.) Winnipeg transit driver stops his bus, takes the shoes off his own feet, and gives them to a freezing per- son in the street. Now that's the beginning of a beautiful trend. Of the 800 teens surveyed by the Pew Research Center, a whopping 40% said they’ve been in a car when the driver used a cell phone in a way that put people in danger. You may not be able to buy happiness, but now you can buy Freedom. That’s right. It’s an app that “locks you away from the internet so you can be productive.” Irony, anyone? ● A former COO of McDonald’s has launched a restaurant called Lyfe Kitchen in Palo Alto, California. Mike Rober ts plans to open 10 new locations in major cities, all featuring low-calorie, locally sourced, and sustainably grown food and wine. From 30 Rock to Parks and Recreation to Por t- landia, it appears our favorite TV series have taken note of mindful- ness practices (even if some of the characters themselves deny it). In the immor tal words of Parks and Recreation’s Ron Swanson: “No, I was not meditating. I just stood there quietly breathing.” Mindful–Mindless Our take on who’s paying attention and who’s not Bacon sundaes and hotdog-stuffed pizza crusts—Burger King and Pizza Hut, seriously? Are you completely wasting your time gaz- ing at images of puppies and kittens? Maybe not. A study out of Japan’s Hiroshima University says it enhances con- centration. Why not? You know our lives are too busy when an invention hits the market that cues parents if they leave a child in the car. The ChildMinder Infant-Toddler Elite Pad System is selling like mad. Saving babies? Excellent. Paying more attention in the first place? Also good. Illustrations by Jessica Rae Gordon Ideas for Mindful–Mindless? Send them to
