The new Mobile Mindset study, conducted by Harris Interactive, has revealed a great deal of new information about the habits of mobile phone users. Nearly 60% of those surveyed said they don’t go more than an hour without checking their phone, while 73% said they felt a sense of panic if/when their device is lost. The most surprising statistic though, at least to us, were the primary reasons people fear losing their phones — only six percent of those surveyed said they were worried that valuable account information could be stolen, while 38% cited the cost and hassle of replacing the phone.

People relax on public steps anyway, why not give them a comfortable way to do so? Stair Squares, by Mark Reigelman, were installed at Brooklyn’s Borough Hall in 2007.

She’s A Taikonaut - China Is Sending Its First Woman Into Space
She’s not an astronaut or cosmonaut - Liu Yang is a taikonaut, and tomorrow she’s scheduled to become China’s first woman to venture into space. She’s one of a three member team scheduled to lift off aboard the Shenzhou-9, accompanied by Jing Haipeng and Liu Wang.
Chinese media featured glowing reports about Liu’s prowess, noting she’s a Chinese air force major and a military pilot with a cool head. According to China Daily, in 2003, birds struck the engine of a plane Liu was piloting. She lost the right engine but stabilized the aircraft and made a safe emergency landing. Watch out, Sully.
