The Super Bag
Moms-on-the-go will love the SUPER bag, a limited-edition diaper bag from Marias in collaboration with actress Sara Sohn. Based on their mutual needs and desires as modern mothers, they designed a chic, must-have diaper bag that’s both pretty and practical. The SUPER bag is made from lightweight vegan leather, and uses one of a kind artisanal textiles from Guatemala. Marias is committed to promoting traditional weaving techniques and supporting the Guatemalan textile industry on a global scale. In addition to helping mothers (it’s got 11 pockets!), the bag also helps children who are impacted by poverty. 20% of its proceeds are donated to the Cambiando Vidas School, in Guatemala. Feel like SUPER mom with this SUPER bag!
Quirks & Quarks
Quirks & Quarks is an award-winning radio science program run by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. Host Bob McDonald, one of Canada’s top science journalists, has been presenting the program since 1992. In this episode, The Science of Mindfulness, he talks with leading scholars in mindfulness research. Together, they investigate the question of how seriously should all of us be taking the claims made on behalf of meditation and mindfulness? The answer? It’s worth hearing yourself!
Kindness of Character
One thing that always stands out in the world is kindness. This heartwarming opinion piece in the New York Times is proof of that. In it, Rebecca Sabky, the former admissions director at Dartmouth, recalls the most unusual letter of recommendation for a student she had ever received in her 15 years on the job: a letter from a school custodian. The custodian wrote that he felt compelled to support the student’s candidacy to the college because of the student’s thoughtfulness. The student was the only one in the school who had taken the time to learn the names of the janitorial staff, to consistently express his gratitude, and to tidy up after his peers, even if he thought nobody was around to notice. Nowadays, the competition is always tough – whether you’re applying to schools, jobs, or just trying to make your own way in the world. However, kindness of character always sets you apart.
Zaria Forman
The inspiration for Forman's drawings began in early childhood when she traveled with her family throughout several of the world's most remote landscapes, which were the subject of her mother's fine art photography.

Zaria's drawings convey the urgency of climate change by connecting people to the beauty of remote landscapes. Her most recent achievements include participation in Banksy’s Dismaland (Aug-Sep 2015), a solo exhibition at Winston Wächter Fine Art in New York City (Sep-Oct 2015), and a four week art residency in Antarctica aboard the National Geographic Explorer (Nov-Dec 2015). Zaria delivered a TEDTalk that aired on PBS, and is featured on TED.com. In October 2016, she flew over Antarctica with NASA's Operation IceBridge; the largest airborne survey of Earth's Polar ice. Zaria has spoken at Harvard University’s Center for the Environment, where her drawings are are exhibited for the 2017 academic year. In April, she will fly with NASA's Operation IceBridge once again, in Greenland. Her next solo show is at Winston Wächter Fine Art, Seattle, WA, opening Sept 7th, 2017.

Born in South Natick, Massachusetts, Zaria currently works and resides in Brooklyn, New York. She studied at Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy and received a B.S. in Studio Art from Skidmore College.

Smartphones have fundamentally changed
Smartphones have fundamentally changed how we live. How to integrate them into our live as a usual tool, rather than a compulsive habit, is a question that needs an answer.

We think smartphones have incredible utility, but not in every setting. In some situations, they have become a distraction and a crutch- cutting people off from each other and their immediate surroundings.

Yondr has a simple purpose: to show people how powerful a moment can be when we aren’t focused on documenting or broadcasting it.
