It was a bright cold Wednesday in March, and the clocks were striking seventeen. Girls sat at their desks desperately racing to finish overdue prep before the celebratory mood of the last week of term kicked in and rendered the entire student population unproductive and in a state of elated vegetation. That was when the study music stopped. Refreshing twice, we found that the glorious YouTube had been blocked.

Those of you who know me will know I enjoy lecturing. Sorry, everybody.

If you were to purchase a DVD in today’s society, I guarantee at least one person would ask, ‘Why?’ Think about when you last bought a movie. And I mean a physical movie, one that you can hold and cuddle and place in the DVD player of your TV. You can’t remember, can you?

Is Technology a Cause of Sleep Deprivation?

sleep

By Mimi Prickett

We are living in a 21st Century like no other where people have technology that can aid them in pretty much everything – whether it be what, how, where or when. We are living in a nation that is always “sleepy”, where endless caffeine hits are a necessity for each day. Scientists are now suggesting that technology – supposedly meant to improve our lives – could in fact be to blame for this trend in tiredness.
