  • British Ministry of Defence researchers have been able to reset soldiers’ body clocks so they can go without {rest|sleep} for up to 36 hrs. Tiny optical fibres embedded in special spectacles project a ring of bright white light (with a spectrum identical to a sunrise) around the edge of soldiers’ retinas, fooling them into thinking they have just woken up. The system was first used on US pilots during the bombing of Kosovo.
  • Because of the speed at which Earth moves around the Sun, it is impossible for a solar eclipse to last more than 7 minutes and 58 seconds
  • Seventeen hours of sustained wakefulness leads to a decrease in performance equivalent to a blood alcohol-level of 0.05%.
  • There are over 25 million bubbles waiting to burst out of each bottle of Champagne
  • The 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill off Alaska, the Challenger space shuttle disaster and the Chernobyl nuclear accident have all been attributed to human errors in which sleep-deprivation played a role.
  • It takes glass one million years to decompose, which means it never wears out and can be recycled an infinite amount of times
  • The NRMA estimates fatigue is involved in one in 6 fatal road accidents.
  • The heat of peppers is rated on the the Scoville scale
  • Exposure to noise at night can suppress immune function even if the sleeper doesn’t wake. Unfamiliar noise, and noise during the first and last two hours of sleep, has the greatest disruptive effect on the sleep cycle.
  • Gold is the only metal that doesn’t rust, even if it’s buried in the ground for thousands of years (Platinum and Palladium also do not oxidize at room temperature)
  • The “natural alarm clock” which enables some people to wake up more or less when they want to is caused by a burst of the stress hormone adrenocorticotropin. Researchers say this reflects an unconscious anticipation of the stress of waking up.
  • Your tongue is the only muscle in your body that is attached at only one end
  • Some sleeping tablets, such as barbiturates suppress REM sleep, which can be harmful over a long period.
  • If you stop getting thirsty, you need to drink more water. When a human body is
    dehydrated, its thirst mechanism shuts off.
  • In insomnia following bereavement, sleeping pills can disrupt grieving.
  • Each year 2,000,000 smokers either quit smoking or die of tobacco-related diseases.
  • Tiny luminous rays from a digital alarm clock can be enough to disrupt the sleep cycle even if you do not fully wake. The light turns off a “neural switch” in the brain, causing levels of a key sleep chemical to decline within minutes.
  • The moon moves about two inches away from the Earth each year
  • To drop off we must cool off; body temperature and the brain’s sleep-wake cycle are closely linked. That’s why hot summer nights can cause a restless sleep. The blood flow mechanism that transfers core body heat to the skin works best between 18 and 30 degrees. But later in life, the comfort zone shrinks to between 23 and 25 degrees – one reason why older people have more sleep disorders

  1. Here's the key: remember that inside, not that hot. Your body temperature remains fairly constant, despite the intense feeling of heat on your skin. (Even if you have a fever your body temperature only goes up a couple of points).
    So remember that it is external, and try to relax into it.
    Oh and over do the salt. a myth that people lose that much salt from heat sweat. An isotonic drink should be enough – adding salted peanuts might overdo it.

    Many older people are members of AARP not because of political idealogy, but for the many benefits of membership. However, now that those in the leadership positions at AARP have taken the stance they have on Obamacare many of these older people are beginning to see their dues go to something they are totally against. So many are leaving as you say.

  3. I agree with much of the above. In in school/college, I find it ridiculous that someone can get a C or D and still be considered as having passed—the difference in knowledge and understanding to an A is immense. (On average: An A student can have a bad day and write a C, e.g., but that is the exception.)

    Then again, “to err is and there is little that can be done about this outside of controlled settings—no matter how it is. The solution is not to eliminate human errors, but to compensate for it by various check-lists and protocols, reviews and double-checks, and similar, whenever it is warranted.

  6. u0206584- Vidhya GanesanI do agree that SimMan is a great invention for trainees to practise on. However, given the fact that medical surgeries are highly complex and crucial as they involve human lives, it may be a better idea any day for trainees to practise on cadavers as the closest model of a human body is a human body itself. There are many aspects and dynamics of the human body which doctors are still trying to explain and understand and hence cannot simulate to the last detail. Also, cadavers are inexpensive and never in sparse supply.

    Not in the strict sense of the word. True hibernators experience a marked drop in rate and body temperature and generally stay for a long period in a den. Polar bears instead enter a state of walking hibernation where their metabolism slows. Only pregnant polar bears enter a den, give and emerge three months later.

I definitely have nights of GREAT sleep but also awful nights where it feels like up all night! my friend actually introduced me recently to http://www.simplynoise.com... I figured out what type of noise I liked best (pink) and volume and the nights I use it I sleep infinitely better. it is actually kind of weird that this has helped to solve it, but whatever.

  13. The Fukushima disaster in March reminded the world, 25 years after Chernobyl, that nuclear energy is anything but clean, secure, and affordable. another nuclear catastrophe was needed to trigger a fresh debate on the use of nuclear power. Germany’s decision in June to phase out nuclear power by 2022 has provoked irritation among its pro-nuclear neighbors. Other European countries have yet to indicate whether they will follow Germany’s example; a world free from nuclear energy is hard for its to imagine. Europe’s economic and ecological future, however, depends upon the rising opposition to this high-risk technology, such as in Italy, where a recent referendum delivered a large popular majority against nuclear energy. In Germany, the idea of a nuclear phase-out has been gaining ever since the Chernobyl disaster. Over the past few decades, anti-nuclear activists, together with their political representatives in the Green have succeeded in…

  17. Today, I am imagining what the air must smell like. Once you know what pristine air is like, I think you ever forget it. Your pictures take me back to well before the Exxon Valdez oil spill to a time when I smelled the crisp, unspoiled air of Alaska. That is something that a picture cannot convey. Wondering when I can plan my next trip

  18. Such a pity no-one has been able to work out yet how to change body clocks.

    Our daughter was a little older when I left in charge of her – about 14 months. Somewhere there is a wonderful picture of her covered in the chocolate filling from Hit biscuits – when she was he investigate, just breathed a sigh of relief.

    Pity he realised that she had worked out how to open the biscuit tin, and how to take the two halves and lick out the filling….

  19. the minister said that Malaysia has no and safe to set up nuclear plant. But did he not know that human error can lead to disaster consequence in a nuclear plant as in the case of Chernobyl disaster. Are we Malaysians so perfect that we will not made any human error that wll lead to a nuclear meltdown? malaysians are known for their tidak apa attitude, just ask those victims of recent cases of bus accidents…..

    I can say that scientists who study evolution do so from the point of view that evolution operates in a naturalistic manner; the mutations are random (most of the time, save a catastrophe such as the Chernobyl nuclear accident) and the mutations that survive do so for either natural selection reasons, adaptation reasons or because the mutations harmful (genetic drift).

    But Blue Fielder is correct.

  23. KANGAROOS. Foraging when night or on cool days. Interesting, though, that they would forage at all during the day. Most kangaroos are nocturnal being most active at dawn or dusk. their eyesight be adapted for night vision? Does foraging during the day mess up their circadian rhythm? Or perhaps so early in the day that kind of still considered nighttime? (WOOT! Biological clocks.)

  24. Patricia says:

    I can understand the fear of presenteeism when using the meds as it will inevitably reduce the immune function and leave you compromised to infection. Not to mention, when I had an asthma in the 90s, I found pneumonia was a close and dear friend. Thankfully, it was workplace related (was a pretty nasty Level 3 facility) and once I left, my lungs cleared up nicely.

    Which leads to this question: Are the allergy symptoms seasonal or does it continue year round. If the latter, there may be more to the story.

  25. Kirsty Girl says:

    I fully agree that TEPCO and the government are responsible for this man made disaster and must burden the costs. Sadly, this will come from our tax dollars.

    I disagree that all vegetables from the are contaminated. The food safety laws in Japan are very strict and everything is being monitored. I will buy from farmers who are out of the contaminated areas but were originally included in the prefecture wide bans that had no relation to the breadth of contamination.

  26. A nice detailing of their lunacy. The pseudoimmunology on their page is especially painful, given that their description of immune function and how vaccines work is pretty much on the money… surprising how easily they contrast it with the (or whatever) explanation of their own

    Also, not 'rebuttle'.

  32. I will refer back to my earlier response: the problem is not spatial. This is what you are referring to, is it not? The fact that suburbia is inherently less dense than the cities? I think all barriers to community boil down to 2 things. The first being fear – afraid of the vulnerability that comes along with true community. Second being the displacement of our need for community (relationships) to objects, finding fulfillment and satisfaction in material things. Human errors experienced by all, indifferent of environment.

  34. The British Ministry of Defence has recently (July) signed a contract for the development of an electro-magnetic catapult for the Queen Elizabeth class carriers, although there is no sign of a similar contract for arrestor gear. There are all kinds of rumours about either selling a vessel to India or sharing one with the French (meaning that Rafale would have to be able to use it). My guess is that UK is going to switch from the F-35B to the 35C or possibly even the F-18E/F, so training aircrew on a US carrier makes perfect sense.

    By the way, sleepwalking and talking in sleep actually happen in non-REM sleep, for the most oddly enough. So: in REM sleep, most likely, when dreaming, whether lucid or not, and in “deep sleep” when walking or talking your sleep and generally the twain do not meet.

  51. Well after twenty years since the Chernobyl disaster, we are still waiting for a totally safe and risk-free nuclear power. Accidents and incidents continue to occur and there is still no solution to the waste and storage problem.

    The word Chernobyl still sends shivers down the spine and its legacy will be with us for years and years.

  53. What's new here you ask, Tim? Well that depends on who you ask. Progress in high-Tc has been slooooow. It took around years before conventional superconductors were explained by BCS, though, so we can take some solace in that. There are many putative models describing the strange normal phase (pseudogap and strange metal): where all the action has been in the last decade. Leggett is a contrarian and has avoided much of this model building, preferring to ask not possible first, and then speculating.

    I know of any researcher who openly talks about room temperature superconductors or when appear, so questions (4a and 4b above) are spot on.

    I think that it is fault for the oil spill. Although it was not an intentional explosion, it was still under there watch. Just like if a kid gets in gym class it not the gym fault, but it is still there responsibility. The mess that the spill caused includdes dead wild life, fisherman buisnesses closing, beaches being shut down, and loss of tourism in the states that were effected. Barack Obama said “this is the worst natural disaster in our nations history” which might be true in some eyes. The BP oil spill was the biggest oil spill in history, so BP has a lot to do before the ocean is completly clean, the fisherman get work back, and they gain back the respect that they lost.

We all know she is the “mother of all housecleaning.” While she taught me how to clean, I never quite caught the “love” of cleaning. Enjoy your clean abode – you never know when show up. Mom

    Anybody have any suggestions for healthy dinners on hot summer days? I get home from work and my house is so hot that I feel like fixing dinner for my family. I could use the grill but I am running out of grilling recipes.

    Any quick, easy recipes for dinner on hot summer nights????

    Any ideas would be much appreciated.

    The kitchen and cooking are not my best skill areas.

    Thanks!

    Elders love reflexology! They are often not touched enough, and they do not have to get undressed. The reflexology sessions will increase their circulation and give a deep sense of relaxation.

    Cancer patients will benefit due to the increase in their immune function by the reflexology session. It may offset the nausea that may accompany their treatments. The endorphin response will help alleviate pain.

    Autoimmune disorders, clients who suffer with this will benefit by the increased immune function and pain relief.

    The Terminally Ill will respond to reflexology in profound ways. It will ease their anxiety, and assist in breathing. It the functioning of the organs, and the digestive systems and kidneys.

  82. We were about 55 miles south of Cincinnati, Ohio, traveling on I-71 N through Kentucky in the early morning (around 1:35am EDT) on March 31, 2009. A bright white light in the sky caught my attention. I initially thought it was an airplane, but it became increasingly larger and was moving westward and down. It ended in a burst of blue/green and orange. The colors were brilliant.

  83. Thank you for sharing, Adam and Frank. Canada is awesome with breathtaking views. The sound of the water, and the quiet must have been so relaxing for both of you as you spend your with your Dad, Adam. Never forget to slow down and enjoy all the beauty around you every day. Sometimes we get so busy that we enjoy around us.
    It was a good idea to not pay attention to time, but to your body clocks. glad that you had that experience and that it did you both good!

  84. I live in Southern Middle Tennessee and on October 28, I was in the backyard about an hour after sundown and I just happened to look up and see very bright white light jot across the sky and dissappear. From my perspective, it was about the size of a golfball and moved east to west for about 300 yards(which is probably a thousand miles or something actually). I was just curious if this could have been from the same event. I have never seen one quite this large and so bright. It was amazing.

    Thanks for visiting us. Cooking a root breaks the herb down so you get more medicinal in your cup of tea.

    Yes I have used ginseng root as an herbal tincture but never as a tea. Ginseng is a wonderful herb that even my very old grandma takes frequently in pill form. Some Korean friends of mine said that in their country its known as the herb that resurrects the dead. Not literally of course but its medicinal are treasured because its very good for over all immune function and to promote all around wellness.

    I do agree that SimMan is a great invention for trainees to practise on. However, given the fact that medical surgeries are highly complex and crucial as they involve human lives, it may be a better idea any day for trainees to practise on cadavers as the closest model of a human body is a human body itself. There are many aspects and dynamics of the human body which doctors are still trying to explain and understand and hence cannot simulate to the last detail. Also, cadavers are inexpensive and never in sparse supply.

    If your talk was NOT recorded – at my suggestion the DID recoding talks – might I suggest you take your own recording equipment in future to any talks you give (eg mobile phone). It is a great pity that the Putney Debates ran for some 20 years(?) yet so few talks were recorded (I know Sean has been videoing talks for some while now but not always around).

    These talks – I remember the last Putney Debate talk you gave on Pharmaceuticals – are far too valuable as podcasts to be lost.

    Authors: Arendt J Abstract At Arctic and Antarctic latitudes, personnel are deprived of natural sunlight in winter and have continuous daylight in summer: light of sufficient intensity and suitable spectral composition is the main factor that maintains the 24-h period of human circadian rhythms. Thus, the status of the circadian system is of interest. Moreover, the relatively controlled light conditions in winter are conducive to experimentation with different types of light treatment. The hormone melatonin and/or its metabolite 6-sulfatoxymelatonin (aMT6s) provide probably the best index of circadian (and seasonal) timing. A frequent observation has been a delay of the circadian system in winter. A skeleton photoperiod (2 × 1-h, bright white light, morning and even…

  108. In REM, the brain is active and the body inactive, and this is when most dreaming occurs. REM sleep is characterized by an electroencephalography (EEG) that has low voltage and mixed frequency, similar in appearance to the wakeful EEG. During REM sleep there is loss of skeletal muscle tone, and an active sympathetic nervous system.

    In NREM sleep, the body is active and the brain inactive, and there is relatively little dreaming. Non-REM encompasses four stages; stages 1 and 2 are considered and 3 and 4 They are differentiated solely using EEG, unlike REM sleep which is characterized by rapid eye movements and relative absence of muscle tone. There are often limb movements, and parasomnia sleep walking occurs in non-REM sleep. A cyclical alternating pattern may sometimes be observed during a stage.

This thought got me to wondering what a mother”s resume would look like in comparison to a professional”s. I suppose it would depend on the experience of the mother and the professional. New moms and new professionals can offer some experience and the desire to work hard and learn. The more experienced mother and professional can offer solid examples of how they have performed and grown into roles with increasing levels …mothers, tribute, mother’s day

    Older people, even those who are not wise, are treated poorly by our society. We are a youth-oriented society where the signs of age are looked at as a weakness, not a strength.

    No matter if the older person is wise or not, they should still be treated as the unique individual they are and not just as an “old person.”

  120. The accusation that nuclear power is unsafe is not justifiable. Personally, I would go so far as to say that it is the most environmentally friendly form of large scale power production that we currently have (even including the Chernobyl disaster). Whether the industry could cope with meeting setup/decommissioning costs without government intervention is another matter as evidenced by the statement from the Westinghouse executive.

    Why I like the Whey Cool is mostly due to the following components: Beta-lactoglobulin (Binds fat soluble vitamins making them more available to the body.), Alpha-lactalbumin (primary protein found in human breast milk.), Immunoglobulins (critical for immune function), Bovine Serum Albumin (carrier protein and stabilizing agent for countless enzymatic reactions), Lactoferrin (antioxidant and immune modulating abilities). If a person is sensitive to milk a protein product especially with these complementary constituents may be problematic. Of course, protein in the form of powder is not ideal. I would suggest eating food containing protein as well as a host of other nutrients rather than drinking shakes. Shakes are convenient but will never be as good as actual food. Protein consumption definitely increases on an individualized basis with exercise but as a general rule a person needs (if exercising) 0.8-1.4g protein/kg of body weight in a day. more to come….

    When I was probably 10 years old, I missed a very appointment because I forgot to set my digital alarm clock the night before. From that day on, I obsessed over making sure my alarm clock is set before I go to bed. I will then lie down, only to have to look at the alarm clock again and again. At 37 years old, I still do it. Crazy. so stupid.

    I think that my generation is open and more accepting than pasted generations. We are obviously more advanced, and aware of the people around us. This generation is pretty much a straight forwarded and clean cut. For me age really does not have to do with respect. Some older people I respect and some I do not. You have to give respect to get it. Also age dose have some what to do with values but not really. My grandma and I share similar values where on the other hand my mother and I do not. Well young people sharing the same point of views and values, I would have to say no we do not. I am sure that some do but most likely they do not.

  131. Smoking is a difficult topic to address and analyze especially when dealing with an adolescent population. There are so many factors that contribute to why one may begin smoking. In my high school it was considered the cool thing to do and if you smoked you were of the popular group of kids. The same goes for teens seeing famous people, ads, and etcetera promoting smoking. They see it as being a of something. As stated in the many teens still smoke regardless of the knowledge that is given to them about the dangers of smoking. Sometimes it seems hopeless to intervene. I think that we can still reach out to teens as teachers to help them think of smoking as a negative. I really liked the idea of using the money from anti-smoking ads for finding cures to tobacco related diseases.

If you share your bed with another person, the presence of said second person interfere with the ability to accurately determine your own cycle? And even more supposing your sleep cycle alarm clock works as intended, measuring your sleep cycle and nobody and emitting sleep-interrupting noises at the right time during your sleep cycle and nobody consider the effect this would have on your bedmate, whose sleep cycle is likely to be different from your own. It would be . . . suboptimal.

  133. Greg R: The entire human body, when analyzed as a whole demonstrates irreducible complexity. Not that things cannot be simple. They can and are. But as a whole, the human body is very complex. And yes, we live in a fallen world, so there is no of creation that is untouched from the Fall. The human body is a marvelous creation of God, but a “fallen” human body in a world with “infections” etc…that seek to destroy the host. Life is a struggle because of the Fall.

    Life is fragile on one hand and can be taken in an instant and it is robust on the other and can miraculously find ways to route blood-flow for example, in order to sustain life.

    REM sleep is actually fairly light sleeping, delta wave sleeping, or stage 4, is the deepest and the most regenerative(i believe).

    “After the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska in 1989, hundreds of untrained volunteers who helped swab up oil complained of respiratory problems, nausea and headaches after the crisis.”

    This pretty much justifies the official policy, as far as I am concerned. Yes, a difference between the crude oil in the Exxon Valdez case and the bunker oil in this case, but still close enough that the precautionary policy of the feds seems justified to me.

    I definitely had sleep problems before any craziness showed up. sometimes wondered if the ridiculous levels of sleep deprivation ended up causing my mental health problems, or if all connected together. But not really a question going to get answers in a hurry.

    Most off the shelf digital alarm clocks use the frequency of mains for timekeeping, and at one time computers often did too.
    And it really works with damn good precision since my digital alarm clock never needs adjusting whereas my expensive computer needs adjusting on a regular basis, makes yo wonder why they specify the computer to output a clock signal, would cost next to nothing too.

    One of the reasons that there was a of milk was that body temperature of the cows that made the milk was increasing because of all the pollutants in the air they breath in. But rather than do anything about it, the Federal Government sat around denying that this increase in body temperature was happening, or that if it was happening, it was just of a natural cycle. When they finally decided to do something (because the science became irrefutable and the public getting concerned), it was a very poor and inadequate response. At the same time, some (admittedly now few) supposedly intelligent people argued that the increase in body temperature happening, and that it is just a vast left wing conspiracy to justify more intervention in the economy.

    All fibers are not created equal. Today I am posting a blog that will give an overview of this issue. Most of the resistant starches you mention have limited health benefits.
    The most potent fiber supplement is psyllium. It provides laxation, cholesterol lowering, blood glucose lowering, blood pressure reduction, and weight managagement benefits. It is not a prebiotic and does not enhance immune function.
    For comparison, the resistant starch wheat dextrin, another fiber supplement, is not approved for laxtion, does not lower cholesterol, and is not a prebiotic and does not enhance immune function.

I get tired at the same time every night, and when healthy I sometimes even wake up before my alarm clock. I wish I could “fix” him to be like me, but just the way wired.

    My body clock as never been right either, hence my interest in the more of a vampire than anything else and a real struggle for me to be “normal” like other people.

  165. Willis Eschenbach (23:44:44) :
    For an example from another discipline, consider the temperature of the human body. It is very insensitive to the environmental temperature. When the forcing from the environment goes up or down, the human body temperature barely responds.

    But when we get a fever, our temperature can spike radically. All the human body’s lack of sensitivity to forcing shows is that human temperature is not set by the forcing … but that doesn’t mean it can’t change as you claim.

    Yes, Willis you picked an example of an organism which has a control mechanism to maintain body temperature, a better example would be a lizard, the which body temperature of which follows the surrounding temperature! Also not true that the body temperature try sitting out in the snow or out in the sahara naked.

    But so far, you’re saying the molecules are traveling at around 400 miles per second at room temperature and pressure, some faster some slower.

    What’s room temperature? What is room pressure?”

    I was using the metric system where m/s means metres/second.

    Room temperature is around 22 C or 295 K or 72 F.

    This is a comment in response to Rebecca. Actually when you are in deep sleep (REM sleep) that really see the difference in brain activity. Our minds are very active and dreaming. If you recall your dreams, that is actually a good thing! That means you are going through through the proper cycles of sleep stages. We dream in REM sleep but we typically wake up straight out of REM sleep. The reason why people remember nightmares is because they awaken out of that deep (REM) sleep. If people typically remember their dreams then that usually means they are not getting enough sleep to go through all the stages of sleep! See… I really do enjoy this stuff!

  205. A few posts have suggested that these findings are “false” on the basis of the idea that stress inhibits immune functions via In fact, the story is much more complicated than that. Whether stress leads to increases or decreases in various immune system activities depends on many factors – the duration and intensity of the stressor, the type of hormone responses it elicits, and the kind of immune function being considered. The paper by Segerstrom in 2004 provides a good overview of these patterns. Also, effects on immune functions are not uniformly suppressive – at low physiologic doses it mostly has enhancing effects – but this too depends somewhat on which immune process is being considered.

    History is pretty meaningless when your sample is so small, and when spread out over such a long period. Until Reagan, there had never been a movie actor elected to the presidency. There had never before been a 70-year-old president. Did that mean he win?

Town also has a natural alarm clock – the squawking of seagulls in the early morning!

    I say it is BP fualt for this mess. It was BP oil rig that burst. BP is responsible for the worst oil spill in US history. About 4000 birds were found covered in oil or dead. BP is responsible for all of these birds. BP put a tighter cap on the leak and stop anymore oil from leaking. the damage has been done. It is up to BP now to clean up the oil and prevent the ecosystem to spiral out of control. I know why the goverment has to spend our money on the spill and make the economey worse too. BP has really affected the world and must fix this!

    I think it is responsibility to clean up the oil. I think this because they caused the oil spill so since they did something wrong, they should do something right. They should do something right because, since the oil spill a lot of people relied on the gulf for food for their restaurants and now they provide those foods so they are going out of buisness. Also alot of towns relied on the beachs for tourist attractions so now towns are empty and hotels are losing alot of money. why I think BP should clean up the oil.

    Methylcobalamin, an active coenzyme form of vitamin B 12, is essential for cell growth and replication. It is more concentrated than other forms of B 12 in the cerebral spinal fluid where it can be used by the central nervous system. It donates methyl groups to the myelin sheath that insulates nerve fibers. It may also play a role in maintaining a healthy sleep wake cycle, as well as normal nerve function.

  232. Hey Matt, before I answered this I looked up “what is room temperature?” and it can swing from 65F – 75F degrees depending on where you live. Body temp is more stable and warmer so I would lean towards this 95 – 100 degree mark then let it ride down to room temperature.

    But right out of the bottle at 75F is great with osso buco as I recently discovered.

    My family is SOOOOO traditional it’s ridiculous. they cling to tradition like nobody’s business.

And then my mom wakes everyone up on Christmas by stomping around in her jingle bell socks with a flashing red reindeer nose. It’s ridiculous. And I can’t wait! xoxo

People respond when we let them see the real us and all… and see God in us. Hope is a powerful gift to offer. Grace is the gift we as the body of Christ have to offer to others too.

    Don’t think so. Sorry, Leif, but there are those out there who play shell games under cover of ‘k’. It is most distressing to see these things go on, and very sad. Most are honest. You know what they say about a few bad apples in a barrel.
    I believe in conspiracy theories. There are enough amateur organizations counting spots [including myself] that it is impossible to play any shell games. There may now and then be human errors or factors, but these are invariably uncovered and corrected. For example, SIDC have changed their algorithm slightly in August 2001 with the result that they now undercount the sunspots by 12%. This will be corrected in due time, unless I run into a historical record mentality.

  241. I have never had a “normal” sleep cycle. My preferred sleeping times are from 2 or 3 A.M. until 8 or so with a nap in the middle of the day as needed; however, the the world does not accommodate me so I have to do my best to fit in with a routine. I also love sleeping for a few hours and then waking up in the middle of the night, but it distresses me when I am up for several hours because I know that when I am ready to fall asleep later it will be either time to wake up or I will not be allowed to take a nap.

    Okay, so I read something about the snooze button the other day. It said that not good for you to hit snooze because it messes with your sleep cycle. better to just set the alarm for 30 minutes later (or in my case, 45 … I hit my snooze 6 times most mornings), because then you get longer REM patterns.

    That could apply to life, too. When you snooze, when always waiting and kind of vegging, you miss out on the deep stuff.

    As always with this government, they say one thing and mean another. They know full well that if they lost the £20bn in tobacco duties and VAT, that it would mean a 4% increase in direct taxation. This is all about grabbing headlines, the last thing they want is everyone to stop smoking.

    They estimate the cost to the NHS of tobacco related diseases is £3bn, so they still get a of £17bn, on top of that, if smokers live longer, then there is less pension money to pay out and fewer winter fuel allowances. As always, the government always wins!
