Mindful : June 2019
MF ML Staff from the Chicago Public Library are reading, sing- ing, and playing games with children who accompany their parents to 14 laundromats in underserved communities. The new program entertains kids but also supports families by modeling important ways they can support child literacy and learning development. A two-year-old deaf girl in Newton, Massachusetts, couldn’t communicate with most of her neighbors—until her whole neighborhood hired an ASL instructor and learned sign language. ● In Wichita, a man at Home Depot commented to other customers that they should leave the building because he was “fixin’ to blow it up.” He meant that he needed the restroom badly, but some- one took the joke as a bomb threat and called 911. An Oklahoma cour thouse had to be evacuated when a lawyer sauntered in, blissfully unaware there were insects falling out of his clothes. The verdict? Bedbugs. Automation of human jobs may not be as imminent as feared. Japan’s quirky “Robot Hotel” ended up retiring more than half its robot staff, because they failed to trans- port guests’ luggage, scan passports, or answer simple questions. The hotel hired more people instead. An astonishing (and highly illegal) stash of 1,529 turtles and tortoises were rescued from an airpor t in Manila, Philippines. Smugglers had wrapped the reptiles in duct tape and stowed them in suitcases, but then abandoned them. MINDFUL OR MINDLESS?
