Sleep Is Hot

Was it a premonition or is everyone copying me, but just days after I wrote about Sleep Repression (http://sciencepolitics.blogspot.com/2004/12/sleep-repression.html) and Sloth,...Not Just Lust
(http://www.dailykos.com/story/2004/12/18/03810/361), the issues of sleep and time became hot-hot-hot out there. Check it out:

TAKE BACK YOUR TIME is a major U.S./Canadian initiative to challenge the epidemic of overwork, over-scheduling and time famine that now threatens our health, our families and relationships, our communities and our environment.

Sweet Dreams Go With a Good Night's Sleep
More than a third of Americans dream frequently
Most people have sweet dreams, according to Gallup's latest survey, though the
sleep-deprived are less likely to experience them than are people who get enough
sleep. Also, people who dream every night are less likely to have good dreams
and more likely to have bad dreams than are people who dream less frequently.
Overall, Americans average about seven hours of sleep a night, little changed
over the past decade. But more people today say they don't get enough sleep than
said that a decade and a half ago.

Time for Bread and Roses
Lack of free time is an issue that crosses the ideological divide. Once,
progressives fought against time poverty; now that it's worse than ever,
shouldn't the banner be raised again?
