Headline December 08, 2016/ ''' GOOD NIGHT - *NIGHT OWLS* '''


GREAT STUDENTS :  MERIUM, RABO, HALEEMA, DEE, SAIMA, Sameen  -as I very quickly discovered to  both my utter delight-

And at times pure misery,many years ago,were highly brilliant   *Night Owls*.So, I had this very itchy premonition that something outstandingly great was in the offing.

But to what degree these students actually performed in helping  build a great world for humanity, and a twinkling Ecosystem for world students, I best leave to your judgments.

Outstanding contributing writer Vanessa Barbara would probably put it something along these lines: ''Hey, girls, go paint your nails with patriarchy!''

And the World Students Society, most lovingly called, !WOW!  -would always wonder how in the world did nail polish become so billionaire attracting? 

While the hosts, Proud Pakistan, the people of Pakistan,   slept somewhat feverishly, with their unending troubles and set-backs-

These girls would stir and tip-toe into every academic activity just past 11 pm. And as the night began its wear on, they would sparkle with nervous energy and talent. 

And never once did I find them sluggish or napping the following day.Their age? Glad you asked.    

FOR THIS  STUDY, RESEARCHERS asked more than 2,000  7th to 12th graders in the Fairfax County, Va., public schools about sleep and daytime alertness or-

Sleepiness, as well as things like task completion and planning. they were also asked about a range of emotional and behavioral issues.

They found that shorter sleep duration was not directly related to problems in areas ranging from self-discipline social interactions   [as it has been in other studies]. 

Rather, greater daytime sleepiness or having the evening  chronotype  were much more important for child's emotional and behavioral well-being.

Other studies have shown that the  eveningness chronotype  is associated in adolescents  with various kinds of risk-taking behaviors, from drug and alcohol use to sexual and even financial risk-taking.

In adults the  ''night owl''  phenotype has also been found to be associated with health risks ranging from strokes and diabetes to mood disorders.

''In the last 10 years we've come to recognize that there are circadian clocks or oscillators in every cell in the body-

And if you're misaligned with your circadian clock, that's going to affect all kinds of functions.'' said Dr. Judith Owens, the Director of sleep medicine at Boston Children's Hospital and the lead author of the new study.

''That's one of the reasons you feel so lousy when you're jet-lagged, you have all kinds of physical complaints.''

She and her colleagues suggest in their article that a major issue for the evening chronotype adolescents, and a possible source of of problems, is not just sleep deprivation-

[Though these are likely to be the more sleep-deprived adolescents, given the exigencies of early-start high school days] but also-

That they are not at their most functional and alert biologically when demands are made, from driving themselves to school to taking tests.

''To me, the biggest practical take home message is, it's not only how much you sleep, it's when you sleep and how impaired you are by sleepiness,'' Dr. Owens said.

''It's like requiring an adult to get up  five days a week  at  3. a.m,  -that's their circadian trough   -for adolescents to be expected to get up and function at a time when their-

Circadian-driven  alertness is at its lowest point in 24 hours.'' 

The Honour and Serving of the latest Operational Research on Life, Health and Students continues. Thank Ya all for reading and sharing forward. And see you on the following one.

With most respectful and loving  dedication to the Parents, Students, Professors and Teachers of  Pakistan. 
See Ya all on !WOW!  -the World Students Society and Twitter-!E-WOW!  -the Ecosystem 2011:

Good Night and God Bless
