Nefarious NapStealers Promote Bullying

According to the National Sleep Foundation, inadequate amounts of sleep caused by nefarious napstealers are directly related to violent and aggressive actions among school-aged children and the research has proven that  children who bully others suffer drowsiness and sleepiness throughout the day. The study performed by the University of Michigan Medical School research team was able to prove that children with behavioral issues were two-times as likely to suffer daytime drowsiness or sleep-disordered breathing problems as other children who were able to avoid nefarious napstealers and obtain recommended amounts of sleep.

The conclusion of this study was that to help eliminate aggressive behaviors, such as bullying, in children, parents need to make sure that their children are obtaining adequate amounts of sleep. They also recommended the following steps that families should take to help their children obtain adequate amounts of sleep:

  • Encourage napping, even if only as a source of microsleep
  • Do not allow children to have TVs, phones or computers
  • Set aside a specific place for reading activities, so that children can avoid reading in bed
  • Ensure that school-aged children obtain an adequate amount of uninterrupted sleep every night. Preschoolers need 11 to 13 hours of sleep per night, while older children can subside on 10 to 11 hours of sleep nightly
  • Talk to your children about the importance of sleep and of avoiding bullying behavior, even if you’re tired

“What this study does is raise the possibility that poor sleep, from whatever cause, can indeed play into bullying or other aggressive behaviors — a major problem that many schools are trying to address.” – Louise O’Brien, assistant professor in the University of Michigan’s Sleep Disorders Center and the departments of neurology and oral and maxillofacial surgery

Researchers concluded that elementary school-aged students who participated in bullying suffered sleep disorders such as sleep-disordered breathing, including snoring and obstructive sleep apnea, which contributed to many factors of their daytime sleepiness. Technological stimulation by computers, video games, cell phones and televisions in children’s bedrooms, as well as a hectic home life were also large contributing factors.

The study, published online May 26 in Sleep Medicine, suggested that although more research is needed on the link between sleepiness and bullying, efforts to reduce children’s daytime sleepiness could help eliminate a significant amount of bullying among kids.

“We know that the prefrontal cortex area of the brain is sensitive to sleep deprivation, and this area is also related to emotional control, decision making and social behavior, so impairment in the prefrontal cortex may lead to aggression or disruptive behavior, delinquency or even substance abuse. But the good news is that some of these behaviors can be improved, sleep-disordered breathing can be treated, and schools or parents can encourage kids to get more sleep.”

Conclusion: get more sleep, avoid napstealers and siesta thieves, and the nefarious napstealers that can enter family life or you may pay the consequences at school and even with law enforcement, if things get out of hand.

Communication really is essential–and not just for their sake of knowing going on with you; you harboring angst and frustration is worse and could potentially lead to passive-aggressive behaviors, versus dealing with it.

    The numbers of HIV victims are significant. What would be of greater interest is how many school aged children are suspected carriers of HIV? How many documented case are there of child to child transfer in the public school system. We know there are HIV positive students in the classroom now, has there been any situation of transfer “in school” that elevates the risk as being significant enough to remove / isolate HIV+ students?

    Thanks a lot for putting up the website. I have two suggestions for the area. One is a comprehensive map of bus routes by zone. The way set up now, if looking to go to a specific place from a specific place, you have to check each bus route for the zone, which is time consuming. It would be nice to just look at a map and see which buses go to the different stops.

    Second, bigger and clearer maps of the routes. Some of them are hard to read right now.

    Thanks again.

    I agree.

    A few years ago, I worked in the public school system. I saw first-hand that it rewards disruptive behavior, warehouses normal children, and focuses on the fringe elements.

    An excellent comparison to public schools can be found in the story “Harrison Bergeron”, written more than 50 years ago by Vonnegut, Jr. That story can be found in his book “Welcome to the Monkey House”, which is a collection of stories. It is almost prophetic in its insights.

  23. Very good post. Celibacy goes hand in hand with having a call upon life where kingdom ministry would actually be hampered by family life. Very few ministry today require someone to sacrifice family life for gospel issues. Paul and Barnabus had to forego marriage because of the task to which they were called. But most singles in America cannot claim such monumental tasks to justify their singleness; even success at self-imposed abstinence enough to make singleness biblical.

  27. Objectivity + critical thinking + data Conclusions that can generalize to a larger population.

    One redeeming factor about the data that lay people collect is that they might also simultaneously collect subjective about their caloric intake or sleep patterns. For example, the iPhone sleep cycle application user could also annotate the figures the application creates with information about their daytime sleepiness or time to fall asleep at night. If they did this, they could make very relevant conclusions about themselves.

    And maybe this is the real message, if done correctly (i.e. with annotations) lay people can collect data and make relevant conclusions about themselves. Whereas, collect data and with any luck make conclusions about the population.

    Another over-diagnosed, but seldom discussed disorder is Borderline Personality Disorder. It is a trash can diagnosis inflicted mainly upon women. Where I live in Michigan there are two primary diagnoses attached to inpatients at the University of Michigan Hospital: Borderline Personality and Bipolar. Both are treated aggressively with medications by University of Michigan psychiatrists. If you are an older patient ECT is the norm at this hospital as treatment for any diagnosis that carries depression as a symptom. In my mind this is criminal.

    The texting conversation has come up a lot recently between my friends and I. While we all agree that behaviors are rude, I think we are all guilty. However, the conclusion that we have come to do has more to do with the effect on social behavior than it does on social etiquette. Text messaging has made our generation less honest and more superficial, and we are not as good at socializing as we used to be. I wonder then if those college students in India who less impolite behavior when it came to text messaging have healthier social behavior.

  43. Tom, it is interesting that you made a connection between your sometimes disruptive behavior and his situation at home. The student I followed also has divorced parents and he is one of the most active in class, making suggestions to the teacher when appropriate and wanting to answer questions. I wonder if his desire to contribute to class may have to do with wanting attention as well. Anyway, I have noticed, as you have, that homw situations can have a significant effect on school behavior/performance. Also, I liked that you just see this assignment as a one-time deal but are looking forward to continuing to work with the student.

Some people, children and adults alike, are just not good test takers.

There has to be a better solution to evaluating teachers, schools, and education in general.

    Last summer, I was thinking about volunteering at local animal hospital. I arranged a meeting with one of the veterinarians to be shown around and discuss when I might be available to come in.

    But in spending a lot of time at the hospital, I realized that, as much as I wanted to help out, I have the stomach or enough “emotional control” to work there. I felt really sad just thinking about it! I wonder if possible that become habituated too, even though I imagine being regularly exposed to the pain of animals. Is habituation entirely involuntary? Or is it possible that we can be so opposed to an idea that we make ourselves unsusceptable to habituation?

    Hey Nicole,Try adjusting the mask to see if you can loosen it a bit without causing a leak. A very small leak is okay, but too much and the air pressure will escape the mask and not be effective for you. Wear the mask for two weeks straight – you should be feeling a difference by then. But just the fact you are dreaming is an excellent sign! Oftentimes when I put a pt on the mask for the first time and get them up to a good pressure, they will have “REM rebound” which means they will have hours and hours of that dream sleep. Due to their poor sleep previously they were REM deprived. All of this REM/dream sleep usually makes a person feel exhausted in the morning, but as you wear the mask your REM sleep will decrease and normalize. Good luck with it all!

A new study by a University of Missouri researcher found that Mexican-American college students’ family and peer attachments are associated with prosocial and physically aggressive behaviors that can affect their success in college.

    – Go to Preferences for Keychain Access and Check the box for “Show Status in Menu Bar”

    There will be a lock on the menu bar. If you click on the lock, the top option will be to lock the screen.

    Developing an anger management plan for teens could be difficult since teens are quick to resist advice and not always compliant with instructions. In order for anger management for teens to be successful, a program must be designed that will reach the targeted teen without being overbearing. Convincing a teenager that they have behavioral issues which need attention may be a challenge but it is essential to make them understand the of making a change.

  69. That is too funny. I like the idea of leaving a note that suggests violence. You have to say, leave or else, you just allow the mind to ponder the consequences of NOT leaving. I”ll have to use this one. totally in of passive aggressive behaviors.

    “Patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) may blame their daytime difficulties on simple sleepiness, but new research suggests that their brains may be to blame. Specifically, their cognitive challenges may be caused by structural deficits in gray matter, brought on by the intermittent oxygen deprivation that comes with OSA. The good news is that these deficits may be or fully reversible with early detection and treatment, according to Italian researchers.”

  74. Joene,

    Great post on an often overlooked aspect of gardening. Too often we assume we know in our soil when we really have no idea. I also think many plants do not thrive because of soil conditions but gardeners are more likely to blame it on something else – like inadequate amounts of water or sun.

    Good to see honorable law enforcement.

    As a victim of the worst representation of law enforcement, I know how damaging they can be… In New Mexico, I have experienced law enforcement actually enable criminals over and over and over, witnessed them violate laws for political purposes and watch as they perpetrated crimes. It is frightening. It is despicable and completely unjust to see them all get away with it and not even consider the victims they have created as they continue their lives without punishment or accountability.

    I good law enforcement and admire the overwhelming number of good law enforcement officers, in my opinion they all should get raises and any benefits available.

We had a neighbor some years ago with an aggressive chocolate lab. He bred her. The litter, to my relief, were all stillborn. He bred her again. Sold all but one female pup that he kept. Like mother, like daughter. Now we had two aggressive dogs running free in our rural neighborhood. Thankfully, they eventually moved. We could not walk, jog, ride a bike, etc. past their house safely.

    Well, not only are they not news programs but your assessments of their personalities is the other Hannity is a radio guy, not a policy/economics guy. He is not capable of discussing religion or social issues, in my opinion – he just treats them as “values”. focuses on irrelevant stories and is also not informed about religion or social issues – again treating these issues as “opinions”. The problem is that they do discuss religion and social issues, but they are no good at it.

    Consider last panel discussion on Special Jonah Goldberg (center-right) agreed with Juan Williams (center-left) on EVERY SINGLE ISSUE (I think). And then of course Charles Krauthammer was there – he is also center right. The Special panel is a lot more respectful and collegial than what I usually see on Hannity and O'Reilly.

    hoping that their similarities will spark some serious debates on the nuances of these policies. When they speak in genrealities along conservative/liberal lines the public just figures more nonsense. If both would be willing to admit that the real debate is in the details we could have some great conversations.

    I like that McCain is pushing for debates to soon. The more the better in my opinion. This voter still has an open mind.

  86. At the conference, there were several presenters from the University of Michigan Medical School, including M Weiner, T.C. Dixon, S.Cendrowski, and P. Hanna. Dr. Dixon presented on new virulence factors. Dr. Cendrowski explained that “the presence of a colored complex, putatively an iron chelate, has been observed in the supernatants of B. anthracis cultures grown under conditions that favor production of known virulence factors.” He then discusses subtilis and explains that experiments are proceeding with a mutant b. anthracis strain utilizing a siderophore to scavenge iron after germination in the human host. But all this scientific stuff is over my head so just leave it to the FOIA people to produce documents relating to the license and the NAS scientists to explain the significance (forensically) of the spike for iron.

    I think cell phones would be a distraction in the classroom. I think if the option to text or to learn was given to kids, most would pick texting. I know I would choose that choice. Some people might argue that it would be easier to communicate and that texting other students would be less distracting. They might say a silent text is better then a whisper across the room. They are right, it is quieter, but it takes away from the lesson. If kids had their eyes glued to a screen all day and not the board we have a very world. So to anwser your question, I disagree that cell phones would would be a positive tool in the classroom.

    not enough difference between the economic policies for that to be a deciding factor– both are undesirable, though the one more so than the other. So it comes down to the social issues.

    Hi Dan,

    I hit a cubic equation for question one. Just want to double check, the distance between the two hermits is the diagonal line connect the two hermits, not the distance along the shore, is that correct? If that is the case, can we leave it at the cubic step and not actually solve it, but to just outline/describe the following steps? Thanks.

  139. Yes, but this only works when the people suffering from substance abuse admit they have a problem. People like my son think that alright and everyone else has the problems.

The gospel is the “good news”, but sometimes the good news does not seem to be good news at first, because it proclaims something which goes against the grain of society, but has the capacity to free humans to be able to truly love others within that society, it is the paradox of the gospel.

    I think that most folks in marriage have a difficult time with this “compromise” word because the dominant personality hardly ever compromises while the more submissive one (husband or wife) always gives in. So to the dominant one compromise is much needed but not so much for the “submissive” one. Of course the “submissive” one often uses passive aggressive behaviors to even out their “submissive” activities.

  170. I personally think the title to your to stop all dog aggression is a bit misleading. Not all behavioral problems can be solved with a shock collar. Indeed, use it on the wrong type of dog and for the wrong type of aggression and you can ruin a dog. I have nothing against shock collars but it be cannot summed up that the shock collar will stop ALL dog aggressive behaviors..

  171. And for Oleg, in addition (what said): 1939, the U.S.S.R. had seven neighbors to the West: Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania. She unleashed aggressive actions against six of them, all but Norway, that is.

    With four kids, a steady stream of acting gigs and a new book about to hit the shelves, it’s safe to say that Vanessa Williams is one very busy mom! The 48-year-old actress, who is mom to Melanie, Jillian, Devon and Sasha, talks to Parade about the end of Desperate Housewives and her hectic home life.
    On her busy days: “I’m literally driving my 11-year-old to school and bringing snacks to soccer games and going to her swim meets, so there’s not much down time. But if I was away on vacation, my first stop would probably be to a spa to get a nice massage and relax!”

(American Thoracic Society) Hypoglossal nerve stimulation produced marked dose-related increases in airflow in obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) patients without arousing them from sleep, according to a new study from the Johns Hopkins Sleep Disorders Center. The study suggests the potential therapeutic efficacy of HGNS across a broad range of sleep apnea severity and offers an alternative to continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP), the current mainstay of treatment for moderate to severe OSA. The effectiveness of CPAP is often limited by poor patient adherence.

    Thanks, Undine, and, yes, Inky, that rank distinction is truly something that matter on paper more than any place else.

    Up until a few years ago, our new instructors were called instructor for the first 2 or so years (depending on number of teaching experience they had–NOT on their degree) before they were “promoted” to assistant professor [fyi I escaped this by having just enough teaching experience]. This caused such ogida, especially with newly minted who were quite angry to be titled Instructor rather than Assistant Professor, for obvious reasons ranging from DAMN, a PhD already, to, I be taken seriously at academic conferences unless I can use Assistant Professor in my signature rather than Instructor….

    So now we have two levels of Assistant Professor (I and II), and more than a few new profs leave off that roman numeral on their email signatures;-)

    I grew up playing video games. While, I hardly ever play now, I think the technology is incredible. It blows my mind to think of what gaming technology would come to in the future since the graphics are already insane. I think there is an issue with kids playing too much video games and being anti social. However, while growing up the parents should monitor their kids and allot specific times. The games are not the problem, poor time management is what really contributes to people being way too engulfed in video games. In time I think this issue will only get worse considering how much crazier the gaming technology gets.

    I checked out your links and any evidence they provide for your argument is pretty pathetic. Assuming that the officer acted improperly (which might never be conclusively determined), you have no evidence that his actions were a result of military training rather than police training. In fact, from statements and comments by other police officers, it seems that the law enforcement community feels that he acted properly according to police procedure (which may be a problem – I would argue it is, but, if true, blows your argument out of the water).

This condition is a chronic one that interrupts or disturbs the sleeping pattern of that person in about five to times or more in an hour. Each pause in breathing is called apnea that can last from a few seconds to a minute. In majority of cases, sleep apnea can be diagnosed with an overnight sleep test called a polysomnogram or sleep study. Sleep Apnea consists of three different forms and these are Central Sleep Apnea (CAN), Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), and complex or mixed sleep apnea “” which is a combination of CNA and OSA.

    For people moving between systems, bearing in mind that in the UK, I believe that almost all “Assistant Professor” positions are actually permanent (unless clearly stated otherwise) once the probation has been passed, and that probation is often simply a formality. I think this contrasts to that an assistant professor position might mean in the US.

    I agree that no one is perfect, but teachers are responsible for learning how to properly deal with behavioral issues. Elementary school teachers spend a good amount of time dealing with misbehaving students. I feel that if teachers know what types of punishment and reinforcement works best with their students, they may be less likely to become frustrated or angry. Teachers need to be patient. It may take time to what techniques work best for each individual student.

    Oh, and really no secret that mathematicians are than everyone else. That only mathematicians can see that is itself evidence of their intelligence.
    I need to remember that one. 🙂

  296. hello chronicles…

    hmmm… not into tidings of and joy, huh? actually

    good news shared is a endeavor at any level.

    If I have good news to tell and you beat me to the telling,

    is it not good news just the same? I think good news

    can be overstated or overemphasized, just seconded…

    If I have good news to tell and I share it with you, it gives

    you leave to share it with others with my blessing… unless

    I ask you not to because I prefer to disclose it myself.

    The joy in good news is in the spreading of it…


  297. Sorry to hear you are having the migraines. I have been doing somewhat better since I a new medicine called Inderal as a prevenitive and some sleep medicine I take once or twice a week. Since daughter moved my stress level has dropped so I know if that is what helped or the meds or a combonation of the three. Hope you are better soon,I could write for hours on the headaches I hate them so. I will be praying for you to get some relief.

    Big Hugs,
