How much time do you spend on your smartphone? THE DAILY GOOD

How much time per day do you spend on your phone? A recent study has demonstrated that heavy cellphone users tend to be more anxious and dissatisfied with life than their counterparts who spend less time on their mobile device. Another study found a direct correlation between stress levels and constant alerts and notifications.

What better way to help heavy users track how much time they spend on their phone than to create an app to help them disconnect a bit? People who downloaded Moment (now available for $4.99) have decreased their daily use by 25 minutes on average after monitoring their digital behaviour. A similar app called Checky is available for free for those curious to know how many times a day and how many minutes they spend on their phone. Are you ready to reconnect with the world?

Two weeks ago at @nike #Hyperschool I had the opportunity to meet @StevenJackson 11yr veteran NFL running back, current offensive cornerstone for the Atlanta Falcons.

Jackson is 56 yards away from becoming the 19th player in NFL history to rush for 11,000 yards. A club reserved for the likes of Hall-of-Famers Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, and Barry Sanders. The accomplishment is an incredible testament to Jackson’s incredible talents, focus, perseverance and drive. 

Steven has 14 yards going into the half, here’s to Atlanta having a better second half.

How much money Grammy Award winning artist can make by singing on the street? - THE DAILY GOOD

A couple of months ago we shared a Daily Good about graffiti artist, Banksy going undercover in New York City. He set a table on the streets of the big apple and tried to sell his art undercover. He only made $421, which is very little in comparison to the amount his authenticated pieces sell for (think in the $500,000 range)… Well Grammy winner, Erykah Badu tried a similar experience not too long ago. The singer decided to make a stage out of a sidewalk by Time Square and sang incognito for a while asking bypasser for spare change. Guess how much money the diva made? A whopping $3.60! In this day and age, it seems that fame, not talent pays the bills. Watch the clip here.

How long of a video preroll can you endure? - THE DAILY GOOD

How long of a video preroll can you endure? The flight company, Virgin America, wants to know and to do so, they’ve contracted Eleven, a San Francisco-based ad agency. The latter created a 5 hour 46 minute video of mannequins trapped in a, you guessed it, 5 hour 46 min flight. When asked how on earth did Eleven come up with such idea, Steven Houlette said the following: “Today, most of the options for flying—besides Virgin America—are pretty bland, lack personality and rarely have the latest in amenities […] It’s almost like they’re traveling on autopilot—without realizing they don’t have to get on that boring flight. Their film is said to be comical and weird, with a Warholian vibe. Give it a try and let us know how long you could endure.

Where’s the pink slime? THE DAILY GOOD, Oct. 14th

The popular fast food chain McDonald’s has grown tired of the “pink slime” rumours and has decided to take proactive measures. Going as far as hiring Grant Imahara, the former host of the TV show MythBusters to star in a video series debunking the misconception of McDonald’s food practices. Imahara encourages customers to ask questions and in turn, he will go in search for the answers.

What would you want to ask McDonald’s?
