Mindful : October 2019
CRAZE OR CRAZY DOG DAYS With hundreds of dogs at risk each year of vehicular heatstroke, car manufacturer Tesla presents: Dog Mode. The feature keeps the cabin cool even while the car is turned off, while the touch- screen displays the cabin temperature, along with a mes- sage that the dog is OK and the owner will soon be back. Pet welfare agency PETA points out technology often fails, and dogs are safest at home, with lots of water. SCREEN TIME Drivers may opt for “mindful mode,” in a new vehicle from Ford, which quiets the digital gauge- screen to show only the fuel level and speedometer. The company says: “Ford con- siders mindfulness necessary for its customers to help reduce their stress behind the wheel.” Stress that may be fed by the constant beeps of the pre-collision assist and lane- keeping options, not to mention the 10-inch touchscreen that channels your smar tphone. ACTS OF kindness Staff at Gwinnett County Animal Shelter in Georgia helped an evicted man and his dog. Katie Corbett was moved by the plight of Mr. Williams, a disabled veteran. Corbett found a foster for the dog, Lucky, and star ted a GoFundMe that raised more than twice its goal of $5,000. The money will help man and dog get back on their feet. Frustrated by the lack of resources at the hospital near Cape Town where she worked in nursing for almost 30 years, Olivia Pharo quit, cashed in her pension, and opened a health clinic nearby. She intends Sister Pharo’s Clinic to be a low-cost, one- stop service. “Helping is not only a privilege, but also an honor. This is where my heart and soul is,” she told South Africa’s News24. Three teens in southern Ontario ended a night of swimming with a more vigor- ous workout. Finding a car emitting smoke on a quiet highway around 1 a.m . and a driver who couldn’t afford a tow, the teens pushed while the driver steered home, more than four miles away. “ We were raised to help no matter what,” Billy Tarbett, 15, told the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. 12 mindful October 2019
