Mindful : April 2016
16 mindful April 2016 A car with a built-in accident-detection system called the cops after its owner got into an accident. The twist? The driver was fleeing the scene at the time. Sex Ed: a tricky sub- ject to teach to any age group. One of the least likely subjects to be taught to mid- dle and high school students according to the US Centers for Disease Control: how to use a condom. Australians can now hit up a “hangover clinic” in Sydney after a night of partying. $140 will get them a saline IV drip and a vitamin cocktail. “Oxygen therapy” costs more. Not included (some- how)? Fast food. Ten percent of all vegetarian products might actually be meat. A recent study called “The Hot Dog Report” analyzed 345 hot dogs and sausages, and found chicken in a vegetar- ian breakfast sausage and pork in a vegetar- ian hot dog. Fitness trackers are so pervasive, even cows have them (see above). But they’re failing to keep the attention of humans: more than half of Americans who own tracking devices have stopped using them. ● Hans Island, disputed territory between Denmark and Canada, is home to a refreshing war. Each country’s soldiers take down the others’ flag, replace it with schnapps or whiskey (guess who leaves what), and drop a note, welcoming the other to the country. It takes lots of power for subway trains to dart between stations, then grind to a stand- still (it also takes Hulk- like strength to stand upright in that situa- tion). London is now converting the power of braking trains back into the system, sav- ing enough energy to power more than 100 homes a year. Aimee Bortnem of Minnetrista, Minne- sota, won a two-min- ute grocery spree. She loaded her cart with as many items as she could—then gave them all to a local food bank. Scientists created a bandage that glows neon green under a UV light to indicate if a wound is infected. (Way cooler than Superman bandages. Sorry, Superman.) How can cattle farmers keep better track of the herd’s health? Introducing: Fitbit for cows. Bessy’s new collar tracks movement and sleeping patterns, as well as digestion and (ahem) optimal breeding times.
