World’s Toughest Job

24 People Who Applied for the World’s Toughest Job #worldstoughestjob

” Here’s a pretty cool project from Mullen for a client we won’t immediately reveal, lest we spoil the surprise. (Scroll down to the bottom of credits, or watch the video to find out.)
The Boston agency posted this job listing online for a “director of operations” position at a company called Rehtom Inc. The requirements sounded nothing short of brutal:
• Standing up almost all the time
• Constantly exerting yourself
• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week
• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary
• No vacations
• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and other holidays
• No time to sleep
• Salary = $0
The job ad got 2.7 million impressions from paid ad placements. Only 24 people inquired. They interviewed via webcam, and their real-time reactions were captured on video.
Check out what happened below. It’s worth watching to the end.”

Disco Helmet

Connect everyday people with a smile

#DiscoHelmet Project’s aim to connect everyday people with a smile, while cutting through the veil of electronic distractions that surround us. We can consciously choose to make technology visible or transparent and by doing so out of choice, we empower and bring ourselves into the present moment. The project creates an experience for the audience to develop ideas and explore their inner selves. The presence of the artist wearing the helmet with an air of radical honesty and sincerity adds to the aesthetics. Nothing says tackling the urban jungle while living in the city like a disco helmet!

The artist:

Adam Quang is an award winning interdisciplinary artist whose work explores human nature and plausibility in contemporary society; pieces that stroke the visual and tactile senses, that touch the heart, and hinge on the duality of his life spent in Asia and North America. In a mass market versus mass marketing framework, Adam’s art stirs our imagination through image and metaphor, shadow and hidden meaning within. He provokes action from the viewer and invites them to be part of the evolving art. He is the founder of  World Karma Project. Its mission is to make you and the people around you “awesome.” Adam currently lives in Toronto Canada.

Researchers at Toronto’s York University have discovered: being nice and practicing good deeds can boot your self-esteem, increase your happiness and change your life. 700 participants took part in the study and stated that it had changed their lives for the better. “After six months, more than half continued with the exercise because they felt good doing it.”

York University professor Myriam Mongrain syas, “Her research (project hopecanada.com) is finding karma may be worth more than cash. What’s amazing is that the time investment required for these changes to occur is so small.” She notes in her conclusions, “We’re talking about mere minutes a day.”

Mongrain says, that by being kind to others, we learn to be kind to ourselves. “Empathy needs to be practised,” she adds.

Now that is something we can all need practice more of – empathy to ourselves and others.

“doing noble, charitable acts makes us feel better about ourselves. We reaffirm that we are ‘good’, which is a highly valued trait in our society. It is also possible that being kind to others may help us be kind to ourselves,” Mongrain says. She notes that previous studies have demonstrated a causal relationship between compassionate behaviours and charitable self-evaluations.

“Compassion cuts both ways,” she says. “If you make a conscious decision to not be so hard on others, it becomes easier to not be so hard on yourself. Furthermore, providing support to others often means that we will get support back. That is why caring for and helping others may be the best possible thing we can do for ourselves. On a less selfish level, there is something intrinsically satisfying about helping others and witnessing their gratitude,” says Mongrain.

“Participants’ levels of depression, happiness and self-esteem were assessed at the study’s onset, and at four subsequent points over the following six months; those in the compassionate condition reported significantly greater increases in self-esteem and happiness at six months compared to those in the control group.” Via: Is there scientific proof for karma? / York University

KARMA YOGA IN THE PARK Toronto

“Adam leads a challenging and rejuvenating class, but one for all levels. At the beginning he asks if anyone has anything s/he would like to focus on. He wants to know if one has any particular injuries. During the class he gives individual attention, gently and quietly adjusting postures and encouraging everyone to push themselves, but only as far as they are able. Today was a beautiful day in Riverdale Park and lying under the old trees on the lush green grass took me back to my childhood. Thank you for this experience, Adam!” — Jessica on Jul 4, 2013.
