Professional therapist here. One important thing to keep in mind is that while all meditation is mindful, not all mindfulness is meditation. I never ask a client to “quiet their mind,” because that’s nearly impossible. Instead, I ask people to notice things, ideally without judgement. Notice your thoughts, but let Read more

I’m in the U.S. As for motivation, I mean, they do pay you for participating, but it’s not a lot, and not the reason I decided to do it. Like I said, I just felt it was something I could do for the greater good. I already have kids and won’t be having any more, so “flipper babies” wasn’t a concern. This is a Phase III Read more

I’m one of the people taking part in the Moderna vaccine trial. There’s a 50% chance I got the saline placebo, but my arm hurt like a bitch for 3 days after the shot, (like a tetanus vaccination on steroids), so I’m hopeful I got the actual vaccine. Obviously I’m not “anti-vax” but I understand there are risks involved Read more

Yeah, it’s a big thing in the US. Multiple spam calls per day. Most people don’t answer unfamiliar numbers at all anymore, which can be a problem if you’re, say, job hunting. Read more

For my LG G7 the default phone app doesn’t do Spam or call screening. The Google app has both.

Bricks are multi-taskers. They’re not just for the kitchen. I keep one on my desk at work. Circumstances there frequently require banging my head against a brick wall. My desk brick is a productivity tool. It’s right there, so I don’t have to get up from my desk and walk to the nearest brick wall to accomplish that Read more

Claire, I think that you and Beth Skwarecki missed an opportunity for Lifehacker synergy here. You don’t need a brick — you need need a kitchen weight! Why use a brick, when you could have a range of barbell plates from 2.5 to 25 pounds that could be used in indoor cooking (35s and above are for the great outdoors), Read more

That’s all well and good, until you need to multiply 989 x 785. I hate that this example always uses the lowest possible numbers to make it seem easy.

To be honest, I think that the moment you start looking for ad blocker, is the moment when you will begin a long journey of being scammed online.

If we look at some of the biggest junkware/malware scheme, they are usually for things that people really don’t need, but think they badly need, such as:

PLEASE include either the National Suicide Prevention Hotline or some other relevant resource when posting articles that discuss suicide or self harm. It is genuinely not that hard. It seems that Jezebel has fully committed to not including this information on recent articles addressing suicide. Read more

I was trying to point out the typo in the article where you said past instead of paste. I will try to make my sarcasm more clear in the future.

My past is filled with baking soda and hydrogen peroxide and my pans are still dirty. Am I doing it wrong?

Yeah, I think that pit bulls are unfairly maligned in the sense that we shouldn’t blame the dogs themselves (anymore than we should, say, blame a bulldog or pug for their breathing difficulties). However, I will note that pit bulls seem to attract, let’s say, a certain kind of unsavory dog owner. I’ve known good, Read more

That’s why everyone should get some of the awesome mutts at the shelter (they need homes and nobody wants them!) instead of getting a dog bred selectively in a way that maximizes their suffering for personal profit.

Yeah, this is unlikely to work. What they saw was more likely a result of GPS drift than the turntable. The GPS resolution is not good enough and they likely use a smoothing algorithm that would make this no different than your phone sitting still on your desk.
