Nefarious NapStealers Are Risky

The western front of the United States Capitol...

Image via Wikipedia

According to an informative article in Gazettes.com, Nefarious NapStealers have created chronic sleep deprivation in our society and there are great risks associated with this tremendous lack of sleep in general in our culture. The truth is that Americans in general are not getting enough rest. We do everything on the run and we don’t even have downtime because we are constantly bombarded with copious amounts of information or we are actively participating in some form of distracting activity, such as cell phone usage, video games or browsing the Internet.

All of this can lead researchers to hypothesize that the Nefarious NapStealers are hard at work in our culture, but my hypothesis is that they no longer have to work at causing sleep deprivation, because the beliefs and attitudes that cause these symptoms are now rampant throughout our culture. The other thing is that  you don’t even have to write well-written, thoughtful, descriptive articles about anything any more, because as a whole, we skim and don’t really read complete articles because we are speedily moving on to the next thing.

That is how the Nefarious NapStealers have infiltrated all ages and ethnicities, causing widespread sleep deprivation and other nefarious sleep disorders, such as napstealing, siesta thieving, sleep apnea, snoring, insomnia and a plethora of others that keep sleep clinics in business. If you’re up for a sleep study, a NapStealer may even be conducting one in your area. All you have to do is take a look around and see people dozing around you to see that the United States is one of the most sleep deprived nations on the globe. Is this a masterpice? No. Is it efficient? I sincerely hope so.

What are the solutions? While there are not many solutions at the moment, the most helpful tools in the sleep arsenal are CSPAN and other government activities. These entities can unintentionally help, by curing insomnia with their committee meetings and voting sessions shown live on basic cable television. Another possible solution comes through religious meetings and activities where ministers drone on and on about any number of subjects. Let’s support these groups that are copiously trying to protect us from NapStealers and Siesta Thieves.

    the only possible solution in Afghanistan is a deal with the Taliban
    .
    I expect this is impossible while counter-terrorism is pursued and enduring bases are built (killing Taliban will always inspire retribution and anger locals; the bases will always be a target)– and not showing signs of giving either up. Therefore, is there no possible solution? ..at least one without a dramatic change in US policy?

  8. I am not a priest, but I do agree with Fr. Hopkins and Fr. Rueda in their positions. I think there has been a tremendous lack of charity shown by the blogger and that is another of the problems we are facing after Vatican II.
    In all the history of our Holy Mother the Church one has never see so many apostasizing and leaving the Catholic Church because of Vatican II.

  10. I too found this book fascinating and vivid. I imagine that many brave women of that time took great risks as the character of Caterina did in Signora da Vinci. Especially from the standpoint of a mother, whose driving force in life is to be there for her son, there is often no other choice than to take great leaps of faith.

    I loved the interaction between Lorenzo and Caterina.

    This book had me feeling like I was an insider during time.

  11. identity theft is a serious issue, many people may not realize but if their identity is stolen then theres a span of illegal activities they could be tied . This happens as the perpetrators use the ” fake” stolen identities. it is also true that there are not many solutions. But the most effective one would be to make computer users aware of how and why it occurs and ways to prevent it.

    Yes Jerry sings with no rhythm. Note the conductor shaking his head when Jerry comes in out of time. He and the piano player do their best to follow the “phrasing” as Jerry rushes and drags. Jerry lost the tonal center during the brief modulation at the first turn around. We all have moments of making big mistakes on stage but Jerry showed a tremendous lack of professionalism in blaming the band.

    When I had my head injury, I had a 4 day stay at the epilepsy monitoring unit at Sinai. Apparently they are the best in the area at confirming or ruling out entirely seizure activity. Dr. Jay Foreman is the guy to see there.

    Currently, US dollar is the dominant reserve currency – one in which other countries keep their surplus assets – it has a major advantage over most other countries. Its (USA) external debts are in its own currency.

    This is very dangerous and great risks when US government finances are in deep trouble, then all the US government has to do is to put in place measures which will increase the supply of US dollars – printing money to repay its debts, causing world wide inflation and dis-stabilizing other currencies.

    I agree 100%, we in the caribbean cannot seem to emerge from this constant brainwashing….if the majority of economic activity is the result of trading only within barbados, or government activities etc., then where does that get us as a country. Absolutely no where. like creating monopoly money within a household and the husband trading with the wife and children only…yeah to that family its real money. Now take that monopoly money to the supermarket..exactly! The family has to earn real dollars not monopoly money. So focus should be on earning real hard currency!!

    all well and good that anime is still being aired on Cable TV, but not nearly as much back when Toonami was around. But now that we have the internet and the ability and option of watching our legal anime on sites like CrunchyRoll and Youtube, and can download full episodes off of iTunes as well as the PlayStation Network and the Xbox Live Marketplace, I really see any reason to watch favorite anime on Cable TV anymore.

  23. I think that you should be allowed to teach your children by your own. One big issue with homeschooling is controlling the quality of education. If parents who homeschool their kids watched, their children could suffer from bad education or have some other kind of education which is very different form an average education. A possible solution would be homeschooling combined with some obligatory classes or official tests on a regular basis which allow your children to prove their knowlege to the state.

    Interesting Excerpt:
    “The standard number/letter configuration found on phones, on the other hand, was originally designed in Soviet Russia, known today as Russia. To send secure messages to other conrads, both the sender and receiver would have devices with the modern phone keypad. This would then be used as both a coding and decoding device. Later on, in 2003, the year the war ended, the device was picked up by BellSouth and integrated into the worlds first cellular telephone.”

    Very interesting tidbit I found

    I think that video games are very useful for using them as an educational purpose. Video games take an eduactional topic and make it fun for the children using them. Also these days there are a lot of good games out there for all different ages and all differnt topics, which benefits all of the students when having fun and getting to use the computer.

  34. Since I,ve been in the Ambulance Service I,ve developed a addiction to tea!

    I drink copious amounts of the stuff due to the fact that we need to “eat in the saddle” at work. I cadge tea at hospitals, never turn down an offer of a cuppa at a patients house (circumstances and cleanliness allowing).

    I think that the idea of using video games as an educational device is an excellent idea if it is used in moderation. Computer use in preschool age children has the ability to allow them to learn, if the game is educational, but also helps to develop their fine motor skills. With older children educational video games allows them to learn information in a nontraditional way that may grab their attention more than sitting down to do homework. But this practice should be done in moderation because kids need to have time to go outside, play, and interact with other children face-to-face.

  44. To compare a free internet (one without government-enforced net neutrality) to the current American cable TV system is foolish. It is net neutrality, not a free internet, that will result in a consumer-unfriendly result such as American cable TV.

    Government regulation drives the market away from satisfying the consumer and toward satisfying the government and special interests (including big “businesses”). Government regulation will result in a strange, unsatisfying tier-system or something similar on the internet.

    If net neutrality passes, in ten years everyone will be saying, “Oh, it was inevitable that the internet would turn out this way.” not inevitable. Stop net neutrality, keep the internet free, and avoid turning it into something like the current cable TV system.

    You asked about your height and weight forcing you into a sleep study. Yes that is true but it is based on a relationship between height and weight.

    Currently there is no regulations on the subject, however, there is a lot of confusing recommendation.

    “Round Lake was founded in1868 by the Methodist-Episcopal Church of the Troy Conference. The Rensselaer and Saratoga Railroad stopped at the site, and the first meeting that summer drew 8,000 people! The first preaching, as at many camp meetings, was done from a raised platform built of wood. Attendees stayed in tents. In 1874 Ulysses Grant attended the meeting, and in 1885 the large auditorium was built, with a pipe organ.In 1887, the religious association that had organized the events was changed legally to the Round Lake Association, giving the settlement a broader base than just a summer religious revival camp.By the end of the nineteenth century, secular educational and cultural events had been added to the program, alongside the religious meetings.”

We were able to troubleshoot in order to have limited audio as we recorded the remainder of the meetings but that remedy also included a hum in the system which we were unable to resolve. We have located the appropriate replacement piece of equipment and hope to have it installed in time for the Committee of the Whole meeting on Monday.

    I, too, stand water. I force myself to drink it sometimes, but generally I really do avoid it. I live on the Wet Coast for nothing, so rarely “crunchy” (Delightful description, by the way. Very evocative!).

    That being said, I do have a good friend who constantly drinks copious amounts of water, and has for years. (She also drinks copious amounts of red wine, which is why my friend.) She tells me that when she began her water-drinking régime, she peed every 5 minutes, but after a couple of weeks of perservering, she any more. It was like her body finally recognized that it could use all that water, she says. And she still run to the toilet nearly as often as I, the non-water-drinker, does.

    One interesting note about cell phone usage at the U of I….

    I was in a meeting this morning that discussed student cell phone usage. Currently, my classrooms do not allow cell phone usage, mainly because students sit and text while someone is lecturing. Today, we actually discussed texting students with information about our courses- homework and exam reminders, projects ideas, and deadlines. Is sending this information via email or posting it on a course webpage (my current methods) becoming obsolete? What forms of classroom communications will we see next?

    Just some thoughts about where technology can possibly be headed…..

  113. Correlation does not equal causation!

    If, as this says,

    “The researchers find an overall rise in both cable-TV access and autism, but autism diagnoses rose more rapidly in counties where a high percentage of households received cable than in counties with a low percentage of cable-TV homes.”

    it might be considering that high-cable countries are also countries where more people can afford cable TV. More people can *also* afford taking their kids to psychiatrists for an autism diagnosis.

    I mean to stick up for television, but this logic bothers me . . . Note – no psychologists were involved with the Slate study.

    Now I have to go watch VH-1.

  114. I was in Class six when cable TV happened…God it was such a boon….sadly now cable TV seems like a curse..what with inane reality shows being aired all the time…and movies are punctuated with long ad breaks…aaarrrgggh frustrating….Now the blessing in my house is the DVD player..I love my film collection and watch them on the player…. That way the fun is uninterrupted…

    Well, … perhaps not entirely a happy note but I think of the charm shipwreck sites offer is the contrast between the beauty of nature and the acts of man involved in the improper construction or handling of ships.

The shipwrecks are a reminder of the ever-present risks that they who go down in ships to do business in the sea take great risks that although often forgotten are in fact ever present.

  118. Rich Rhodes says:

    Is this a discussion about John 10:29?

    There are two possible points which you may be referring to:

    (a) the ambiguity in English between all “all existence” and all “all other (individual) things”?

    (Even in the former sense, a possible solution can be found in the philosophical stance of panentheism — not to be confused with pantheism).

    (b) the fact that the superlative is often used in this context rather than the comparative

    But this would be especially awkward in contemporary English, because saying “God is the greatest” would somehow equate God with Muhammad Ali.

  119. At the of all problems is not corruption but the psychology of Indians. Most Indians by nature are greedy, selfish and morally weak. It is these traits that cause them to be corrupt, callous, contrived and cowardly.

I don’t see how they can help is when the republicans are just going to turn down everything that the president offers up. While democrats would most likely agree to everything the president says. But if we had a house of both democrats and republicans even though there would most likely be arguing they would end up agreeing on a term example of this the Constitution.

  150. I also think that a bureauacratic emphasis rather than real leadership has the WC and its churches. It seems protocol is more than content. It also seems there is a good old boys (and girls) network. At there seems to be a tremendous lack of integrity in high places and that filters down to as well. Local pastors know they often be if they make a courageos decision even if it may not be popular. All this has led to a survival rather than growth mentality.

    I think using video games for an educational purpose is a great idea. If we take something children find fun and use it to teach them it can only help them. They are going to be more engaged by what they are learning and will retain what they are learning. I remember as a child having one of those handheld computer games that had math and reading games on it. I really enjoyed playing it and it actually helped me with my math skills. Especially with today’s technology we should take full advantage of it and incorporate it in our classrooms.

    e boy is a design company with its own unique style. eBoy’s work resembles, but does not spring directly from, video games. The appeal seems universal. their resembles videos games that have just gone by. they use large pixles and a very spare choise of color. There never was an era in games that mixed the primitive graphic approach eBoy employs with the number of hues and shades they rely on. there is a growing demand on their product. they do work for Amazon, Coca-Cola, Renault, Adidas, and MTV.

  158. I agree that we should utilize video games in the classroom. We can not over do it of course. Every couple of weeks we can implement it because if we do it too much kids will lose interest in other forms of learning. There are indeed many games that qualify for instructional purposes. It would be best to integrate these video games into an already layered lesson plan that includes more popular culture/ media driven tools. Watch a video, write a response…… Play a video game and activate prior knowledge of a historical event ???? It is possible.

    I think that educational video games are great and really have a positive effect on students. I have a 5 year old brother who was reading fluently by age 3 and a lot of his instruction was from leap frog (love that program :-))
    Many households have parents that work and have very little time to work with their children, this can be an alternative to this problem.
    I feel that educational video games can really help instead of hinder our students in their academic development.

    My doctor wants to send me for a sleep study because convinced I have sleep apnea. I have exactly one risk factor – fat. But as far as actual symptoms, nada. No daytime exhaustion, dozing off while watching TV or eating dinner. No excessive snoring. I even sleep on my back, which is the position in which sleep apnea is most likely to occur. Heck, the fact that she prescribes me sleeping pills because I fall asleep should have tipped her off, but apparently been blinded and mesmerized by teh fat. so damn frustrating.

  182. Yes, Singtel definitely had the means and money to spend so much money to win the rights. Hopefully they had made the right move to join this Cable TV industry and to fight against Starhub. hope the competition would not lead to either getting bankrupy. Else, the consequences would definitely be worse than what is happening now.

  183. Personally it benefited me as I am using Mio cable tv. However i feel that channels offered by Singtel cable tv is not as great compared to Starhub cable tv. This would contradict soccer fans who are currently using Starhub cable tv to change to Mio tv and not being able to enjoy the other channels of Starhub cable. If users were to get both cable, i believe it would over budget most of them.

    The amount that Singtel bid for was far beyond budget which in turns managed to win exclusive rights. From this, we can see the confidence in Singtel to bring up their cable tv services in singapore.

  187. I find that bidding for broadcast rights harms not only the consumers but the service providers too. It is true that service providers attract more consumers by earning more broadcast rights. However, as mentioned in the earlier comments, both Cable TV providers have already spent a huge sum of money to earn these broadcast rights just to earn more. the costs of these broadcast rights outweighs the estimated amount of extra income generated. Both companies will be at loss in the end and I believe that if they are willing to work together instead of competing with each other, both the provides and consumers will stand to gain.

Most U.S. Cable TV providers look for markets that have at least 200-500 homes in a square mile. Barbados is one of the most densely populated countries in the Americas so it should be an easy shoe in…

    Think of the revenue that could be generated from such a license? They could easy take out an in the Financial Times of London (which is well read Internationally.) and announce the open round for bids and see what turns up. All have to do is place some “Did you know” facts in the add. Like the percapita income of Barbadians and sure enough tons of companies would probably put in an application.
