Headline December 09, 2016/ ''' CARVING *STUDENTS* OWLSZZZ '''


*WELL GIRLS,  WELL, NIGHT OWLS* :  One startling observation  -nobody ever quiet understood :  the point of meticulously painting your nails-

Well, at say, !WOW!  and Twitter-!E-WOW!,  it also could very well be, to fill in the time  that  you all  could have so easily put to the best use of *Sam Daily Times*   *the voice of the voiceless- the voice of the world*.

I'm surprised by how hard cosmetic companies work to make *painting your nails* sound so interesting.

From Russia to Brazil, many girls  have faced tough choices between colors like  ''Rose Petal,''  ''Wedding Pearl''  and  ''Pink Champagne.''

Creatively naming products is a crucial part of the nail polish industry. Instead of introducing a new color and calling it by its Pantone or hexadecimal code-
''Could you pass me that bottle of FFOOIE, please?''   -companies baptize each shade with a poetic epithet like:

''Dark Cherry'', ''Coral Sunset,''  ''Evening Sand''  or  ''Coney Island Cotton Candy.''  So far, pretty harmless.

However, in my imaginary history of cosmetics, adds Vanessa Barbara from Sao Paulo, Brazil,   the companies quickly exhausted their lists of common objects with discernible colors, opening the way for a symbolist phase:

''Fiji Weejee Fawn,''  ''Seychelles Seashells,''  ''Moon Over Mumbai,'' or ''Up the Amazon Without a Paddle.'' a pink with coral and orange undertones that doesn't make any sense for anybody.

This exotic nonsense was the beginning of descent to the darkest shades of sexism and misogyny that we see nowadays on the display racks of the nail salon.

Eventually, a visionary must have introduced the infamous puns  now a trademark of nail polishes : ''Miami Beet,''  ''Baby,  It's coal outside!''  ''Have a Herring Problem''.  

And then there's red shade called ''Snow White''.  So, I now somewhat understand, why you poor souls didn't find much time to work on the World Students Society. 
It must have been terribly exhausting remembering all these names and making a right choice : Merium, Rabo, Haleema, Dee,, Saima, Sanyia, Eman,, Hannyia, Merium, Maria?

VERY EXTREME  ''NIGHT OWLS STUDENTS'',   who cannot sleep until three or four in the morning, may have what is called: *Delayed Sleep Phase Disorder*, Dr. Owen said.

And  students/children with this diagnosis need help from sleep experts, which can involve melatonin and Light box therapy, along with manipulation of the sleep-wake schedule.

Monique K. LeBourgeois, a psychologist at the department of integrative physiology at the  University of Colorado at Boulder, is interested in the individual variations in chronotype that begin well back before adolescence.

In 2014, she and her colleagues published a study in which they measured melatonin levels in 48 healthy children ages 30 to 38 months.

None of the children were considered evening types, but there were definite variations in how extremely  ''morning''  they were  -and those differences correlated with the time melatonin release. 

In other words, even young children vary significantly in their circadian physiology.

So understand the  circadian clock and its variations isn't just important for sleep problems, Dr. LeBourgeois said. ''A mismatch between the timing of the clock and the demands that kids face [or even opportunities for learning and fun] could also result in behavior/emotional problems.''

To recognize individual variations in the  master clock  is not to say that it is unalterably set for life; the clock is affected by exposure to light, especially blue spectrum light, the kind that comes from LED`lights and screens.

In research linking cellphone and tablet use and  poor sleep in children, even having a turned-off device in the bedroom meant poorer sleep.

That's why limiting   -and scheduling-  light exposure and screen exposure play major roles when trying to reset the clock, for example with adolescents have gotten so out of sync that they are suffering from ''social jet-lag.''

Parents can work with pediatricians to help adolescents move their bedtimes earlier, limiting light exposure and screen exposure in the evening and making sure there is light exposure in the morning.

But even of a student's sleep is more in sync with what the world expects, that student still may be expected to perform in school at the least alert times of the day.

Getting more sleep will help, but it won't completely revise that underlying physiology, and parents need-

To help adolescent students map out their most effective, most alert times for studying, concentrating and learning and working on !WOW! -the World Students Society.
