Mindful : April 2016
How many groundbreaking energ y projects provide great places to medi- tate? Swansea, Wales, is bound to be a must-watch place as a massive, energy- producing project breaks ground. The Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon Project is expected to generate electricity for more than 150,000 neighboring homes for the next 100 years or so. How? By building a man-made lagoon to har- ness the ebb and flow of the coastal area’s powerful diurnal ocean tides. In addition to creating a powerful way to generate tons of clean energy, the project’s architecture and design keeps community needs front and center, calling for a nearly six-mile- long lagoon wall to serve as a path for A NEW SPIN ON COMPETITIVE CYCLING Green Energy, Peaceful Energy Artist’s Impression bikers and hikers, a place to hang out and drink in the ocean, and as a draw for boaters of all stripes. The lagoon will also feature artworks inspired by the region’s mytholog y and history, a marine-community farm to reintro- duce the native oyster to the bay, as well as a 10-mile sea reef to encourage an active marine eco-system. Give a few tough BMX cycling competi- tors some mindfulness training and it can boost their performance, say research- ers. After BMX competitors from the USA BMX Cycling Team were given a seven-week program involving exercises to enhance bodily awareness, partici- pants reported less anxiety and greater resilience. Objective measures of post- exertion vital signs, such as breathing and hear tbeat, however, showed mixed results. Since this pilot study showed positive reults, more research will follow using more subjects.
