U.S. Holiday Trends & Forecast: Top Shopping Days, Hot Searches, Mobile Shoppers | CultureTraits | Scoop.it
The shopping forecast for the 2013 holiday season shows no signs of slowing, even in a sometimes-uncertain economy. Data predicts people will shop earlier this year, spend the most on Cyber Monday and undoubtedly be shopping on their mobile devices.

Unionism and the English Language

Unionism and the English Language | CultureTraits | Scoop.it

Bad language is becoming a recurring theme in the referendum debate. Yet  it is not so much the predictable vitriol and smearing that we need to worry about. Nor is it about how we define ‘Scottishness’. Rather, it’s the fact that so much of today’s political lexicon is almost entirely devoid of meaning.

Homemade gravy is lovely and the best sausage gravy recipe pairs really nicely with soft buttermilk biscuits. Do you usually make bacon gravy, another type of gravy or use gravy from a can? Try this sausage gravy next time you are making a hot breakfast for the family and you will be amazed just how good it tastes.

Sausage gravy is really easy to make and you only need a few ingredients to make it, so prepare this as well as buttermilk pancakes, add some eggs and bacon and you will have a magnificent breakfast which is sure to make everyone's mouth water.

High School Students Begin & End Each Day with Meditation

Susan Taylor's curator insight, November 18, 2013 10:05 PM

A high school in Baltimore, Maryland is now making mindfulness a central part of students' lives by beginning and ending each day with meditation

 

Patterson High School has developed a Mindful Moment program with the goal to help students and teachers release stress and enhance focus.  This is all in an effort to create a better learning environment for everyone.  Faculty and kids engage in a 15-minute contemplative exercise at the start and end of each day.  There is a mindfulness room available for students to use throughout the day which is also open before and after school. 

 

Consciously practicing mindfulness in schools has been shown to reduce stress and increase happiness in students as well as fight teacher burnout.  It has also been linked to "increased brain activity in the regions associated with positive emotions."

 

Way to go Patterson High!

Davina De Laure's curator insight, January 26, 2014 8:52 AM

my insight

After reading this article i am shock to know how other people in other country are suffering.At rural countries  low-income families they skip meals because they cant afford to get to the nearest shop to get groceries, walk for hours just to get charity food parcels. and also since the rising of demand of food aid like everywhere else. this rural fastness presents speacial challengers. All this leads to unhealthy eating . like me explain families in poverty nutritionally-poor food such as takeaways and frozen food because healthier options were to expensive it found. Individuals skipping meals because they can't afford food, or buy enough food to feed the whole family was also identified as a serious problem. This poverty should stop donate food cans to family around the will it might save alot of lives without us knowing and after knowing that there are people suffering like this i think twice of wasting my food 

Lim Theng Shryl's curator insight, January 27, 2014 11:45 PM

I felt very sad for the people living in poverty after reading this article. They had to skip meals because they cannot afford to get to the nearest shop to get their groceries. The people live in hunger, and have poor living conditions because the food they have are mostly unhealthy or they have no food at all. I think the government should do something useful for these poor people living in such conditions.

Jasmine GreenTea's curator insight, February 24, 2014 11:02 AM

After reading the article, i know that demand for food aid is rising, like everywhere else. Families in poverty are consuming nutritionally-poor food such as takeaways and frozen food because healthier options are to expensive to be found. Individuals are skipping meals because, either, they cannot afford food, or buy enough food to feed the whole family. The Salvation army, had been providing hot meals for the homeless for over 100 years but in the last year they had seen a huge increase in the number of people who have a home but have no money for food coming to them for help.

I wonder if people in rural areas also feel the stigma of asking for help more, since there are not many people found in rural areas.

Telemedicine robots let doctors ‘beam’ into hospitals to evaluate patients, expanding access

Telemedicine robots let doctors ‘beam’ into hospitals to evaluate patients, expanding access | CultureTraits | Scoop.it

The doctor isn’t in, but he can still see you now.

 

Remote presence robots are allowing physicians to “beam” themselves into hospitals to diagnose patients and offer medical advice during emergencies.

 

A growing number of hospitals in California and other states are using telepresence robots to expand access to medical specialists, especially in rural areas where there’s a shortage of doctors.

 

These mobile video-conferencing machines move on wheels and typically stand about 5 feet, with a large screen that projects a doctor’s face. They feature cameras, microphones and speakers that allow physicians and patients to see and talk to each other.

 

 

“Regardless of where the patient is located, we can be at their bedside in several minutes,” said Dr. Alan Shatzel, medical director of the Mercy Telehealth Network. “Literally, we compress time and space with this technology. No longer does distance affect a person’s ability to access the best care possible.”
