Gadgets before bed ruins teen’s sleep – study

first_imgNZ Herald 13 November 2014The more teenagers use gadgets before bedtime, the worse their sleep patterns get, a study shows.But researchers say parents need only cleanse their kids’ bedrooms of technology in the most extreme cases.Teens who used computers, mobiles or TV right before bedtime generally fell asleep and woke later than those who didn’t, according to an online survey of 11,400 Australians aged 11-17.They were also more likely to wake up later on weekends, indicating their body’s need to catch up on missed sleep.But only those who reported using technology in bed “nearly every night” had more serious sleep issues.Those who almost always took their computers to bed were 2.5 times more likely to have shorter sleep than those who didn’t, according to the research published in the journal PLOS ONE.http://www.nzherald.co.nz/lifestyle/news/article.cfm?c_id=6&objectid=11357952last_img read more

We’re still not giving a total team effort. That’s going to be our focus in the second round,” the Knights mentor said in Filipino.ADVERTISEMENT Down at the cellar at one point of the season at 1-3, Letran has went on to rack up four straight victories before Lyceum halted that run, 75-68, on Friday.It was undeniable that Jeo Ambohot’s wrist injury, which he got in the Knights’ last game against San Sebastian, may have had a hand in the recent loss as the team scampered to fill up the hole left in the middle.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSEnd of his agony?

It’s a matter of stepping up from whoever I pull from our bench,” he said.As disheartening as the defeat was, Napa said that the Knights’ final game of the first round should serve as a lesson for his bench.“My bench players didn’t step up. We still depend on our main guys to play heavy minutes and that’s where we suffered,” he said. “But the players are still positive. We just have to adjust and check the mindset of our players, especially the ones on the bench, for them to recall their roles.”Napa ended: “Every game, we learn a lot.
