A 2005 National Sleep Foundation poll found that Americans averaged 6.9 hours of sleep per night, which represents a drop of about two hours per night since the 19th century, one hour per night over the past 50 years, and about 15 to 25 minutes per night just since 2001. we are not very good at perceiving the detrimental effects of sleep deprivation.

  19. Indeed…There is a new book I read (and like that much) although it of course became a best seller here — called Drive. In it, author Daniel Pink argues that we all work for 3 reasons, autonomy, purpose and mastery….which your reply encapsulate.

    The reason retail work, the subject of my new book, was in fact soul-destroying for me, finally, was the insanely low wages for doing work that felt meaningless in and of itself — making big profits for some corporate employer. The challenge, then, was to find or create meaning within that sphere and it worked for me when I could, as I often did, connect emotionally with my customers, from Boy Scouts to jet pilots. I loved that of it!

    I appreciate that you understand what a privilege we both enjoy in being able to pay our bills though intellectual work.

  24. TomD.Arch,

    I also live in Chicago, and I think on point.

    I also believe that if the city made the test completely Afro-centric, what ever would entail, and there was a study guide available, the scores based on race really change significantly.

    The damage has been done years prior to the applicants taking these tests in terms of study habits and test taking the public schools here really suck.

    These tests are far from rocket science and deal with very basic criminal and procedure. The tests should actually be made harder than they are. There are guides available to study from.

    like to see thee same proposal put out there for jet pilots from the FAA,or brain surgeons from the medical boards.

  27. conzeng misseipp says:

    Hello Dr. Gupta
    I watched your on high blood pressure today. I am confused. On the website of the Mayo Clinic, it states that in “90 to 95 percent of high blood pressure cases in adults, no identifiable cause”. Additionally, for the remaining 5% to 10% for whom there is an identifiable cause, salt is only mentioned as one of numerous possible causes.
    If this is so, why do doctors often recommend to everyone with high blood pressure that they reduce salt intake? As it relates to the 90% to 95% for whom salt is not a causative factor, are they in fact saying that even though salt is not a factor in causing it, reducing salt intake can be a factor in controlling it? I don’t get it.

  29. The Invisible Working Mother « The Mama Bee says:

    A related statistic: people think being a working mom means inevitably being sleep deprived, a stat working moms tend to give credence to with survey responses. According to the National Sleep Foundation, full-time working moms claim to spend less than 6 hours in bed per weeknight. Which turns out to be a complete and total lie. According to the American Time Use Survey, married moms who work full time still get more than 8 hours of sleep per night. If you run the numbers, this just be made up on weekends — in order to average 56 hours per week, with only 6 on weekdays, have to sleep 13 hours per night on weekends, which almost no one does! Misleading numbers like this feed the impression of being frazzled

  32. It’s not clear to me whether the patient had pre-existing blood pressure issues, or was just concerned about possibly having high blood pressure and that causing the headaches. The to my reading, does *not* say anywhere that the student had *either* documented high blood pressure *or* poor eating habits – just that the doctor launched into a lecture on lifestyle things. If the student *does* have high blood pressure, simply going, “you’re fat, eat better,” is not really that helpful.

  34. A large of the problem is the ethos and practice of business and management which draws attention and away from the vital technical, historical and strategic elements of thinking and action of the air power. Formulae and targets are not substitutes for imagination and courage, either in the air or on the ground.

    The stories of the Nimrod of wasteful procurement of political naivete and alternating interference and neglect are sorry ones of careerist incompetence in government and politics, in education, and in the media, all of which have been increasingly infecting the military.

    The appalling managerialist jargon and waffle that is ever more apparent in RAF publications is a significant of this. Language is the main thing that holds human societies together, and when it decays, so do societies.

    and actually more overweight people DO have high blood pressure though you are correct not all, just like many people who are thin have bad and high blood pressure, and not all high blood pressure is caused by being overweight, the majority of it is caused by stress.

    Bottom line is being overweight while not being the sole cause of such issues it DOES complicate said issues.

    This is a useful thanks for writing about it. like to see more of this quality. I think the questions raised remain very As we become more embedded in different kinds of technology and media, we adapt to them, with neither disastrous nor universally wondrous consequences, but they do have very significant impact on specific areas of our lives. Multitasking limitations do affect traffic collision statistics. Different media do require different approaches toward teaching thinking and research skills. The more we know about the details of how culture changes affect specific kinds of things, the more effectively and proactively we can adapt to use them better. The temptation to just assume that change is good and everything will work itself out in time is very strong. And of course for some, that apparent complacency leads to the temptation to yell “the sky is falling!”

    Ken, thanks for the inspiring story. Less than a year ago, three small children were killed in a traffic collision on the freeway near my home. A young family returning from shopping was struck by a large truck, changing their lives forever. The three children, two girls and one boy, were under the age of seven. I drive near the spot of this tragic accident every day and pray for the family, admiring the beautiful flowers that are still left in their memory by loving members of this community. I just heard today that the grieving couple, desperately missing the voices of these small children, decided to have another child. They are now pregnant with triplets, two girls and a boy. Is this a miracle? I know. Is this God? Definitely! Blessings to all….

    It was very hard for me to believe that crime in New York City is down compared to the midwest. I dont think we give New York too much credit, we always hear on the news of violent crimes happenning and yes thats true but it is more extreme in other states. I think a major reason why crime is down is because of the police patrol. I have to see police everywhere including stores and subways. This will obviously prove to be a great crime deterrent because it of enforces the law everywhere in New York if police officers are out patroling.
