The Full Moon Keeps Us Awake
A new sleep study shows that the full moon keeps us awake at night. For thousands of years, people have blamed the full moon for werewolves, insanity, bad moods, and crazy accidents. Now it seems a lack of sleep might be to blame.
The study was conducted by the University of Washington In Seattle, and researchers say folks go to bed later than usual and do not rest as well when the moon is full. Professor Horacio de la Iglesia studied the sleep patterns from people in large cities to very rural areas. He said the effect is the same even in areas with electricity.
Iglesia said that electric lighting throws off a person’s internal clock – and the full moon does the same. Maybe that is why people who enjoy camping in the great outdoors say they sleep better. That is, until the wolves begin to howl.
A New Whale? Wow
When the whale washed up in Florida, researchers knew they had the chance to conduct the much-needed study. They realized it was a new species because of differences in the skull.
Joe Biden – What’s He Up To?
In the first week of his presidency, Biden issued a 100-day masking challenge to Americans who visited federal buildings or took road trips.
His intentions moving forward are supporting communities of color, criminal justice reform, and reducing deportations of illegal immigrants.
Mr. Biden has a long list to complete in the first few months of his presidency.
