Tuesday: Newsy Snacks For Busy People
Multi-tasking: A recent survey has found that sixty percent of Australians are using a mobile device whilst watching telly, perhaps forever banishing the idea of passive viewing. We’re much happier to be watching as part of a community, methinks, and are enjoying browsing and tweeting our way through various shows, sharing the experience with other viewers via tablets or smartphones. I think that’s pretty ace, actually. What do you think? More here.
Feeding Babies: There’s a SUPER interesting piece over at The Guardian that asks lots of questions about motherhood and feeding babies. Is motherhood at odds with feminism? Are breastfed babies really smarter, healthier and less obese? Should we be interfering in an intensely personal decision – what a mother wants to feed her baby? And if the advice is to breastfeed exclusively for the first six months, shouldn’t we be taking notice of the fact that (in the UK at least) only half of mothers who begin breastfeeding continue to do so after their baby is six weeks old? There are lots of points raised in this piece. Read more at The Guardian. SUPER interesting.
ET: Did you know that it’s the 30th anniversary of the release of ET? It’s really one of my favourite movies and we watch it a couple of times a year just to see Drew Barrymore’s Gertie and Henry Thomas’ Elliot go through their adorable alien be-friending paces. Time Magazine celebrates this special birthday with Ten Things You Didn’t Know About ET. Click through to study up.
