Mindful : December 2018
PODCASTS INVISIBILIA Episode: Leave a Message Let’s face it: Voicemail may not be long for this world. Technologies like email and tex ting have largely taken its place: They’re quicker and less intrusive. On the other hand, a 2016 study on the “cuddle hormone,” oxytocin, found that when we hear a loved one’s voice over the phone, our brain’s oxytocin response is almost the same as if we’d actually hugged them. Screenwriter Cord Jefferson considers “the power of the human voice, and what we lose when the voice goes away”—par ticularly if a family member’s life is cut shor t, glorifying the audible mementos in a voicemail inbox. CBC RADIO, SUNDAY EDITION Episode: You can’t stop checking your phone because Silicon Valley designed it that way Repor ter Ira Basen digs deep into the “attention economy, where the biggest prize goes to those who can grab users’ attention and keep it the longest.” For Facebook, Snapchat, and the rest, your attention is what’s for sale. Basen journeys back to the dawning of “persuasive technology,” a term coined in the mid-1990s by Stanford behavior scientist B.J . Fogg. He taught tech pioneers how technology could supply beneficial tools for habit formation. But did it get out of hand? A lively debate ensues about who takes ultimate responsibility for the habits we form. THE GUARDIAN Episode: Is compassion fatigue inevitable in an age of 24-hour news? Elisa Gabbert prides herself on her awareness of goings-on in the world, but lately she has a case of “creeping, psychic exhaustion”: compassion fatigue, or secondary traumatic stress. Psychologist Charles Figley defined this in 1995 as “stress resulting from helping or wanting to help a traumatized or suffering person.” STS commonly haunts first responders and other professional caregivers. But thanks to round- the-clock news cycles, many people now feel emotionally numbed. “ What happens,” Gabber t asks, “when the world wants more empathy than we can give?” This episode samples thought- provoking theories on empathy and considers how we might respond to its limitations. 866.339.4198 Keycode MFA DharmaC r a f t s Meditation Cushions Inspirational Jewelry Home Furnishings since 1979 dharmacrafts.com since 1979 dharmacrafts.com MEDITATION SUPPLIES Call for Volume Pricing for Meditation Cushions 866.339 .4198 Keycode MFA 76 mindful December 2018 reviews
