I love DST...more light for cook-outs in the evening.

The time change never bothered me.

After school events not called due to darkness.

Alzheimer’s is now regarded as "type 3 diabetes" by many. I would not be surprised if one's sleep habits were more symptomatic than causative in relation to Alzheimer’s disease.

Eat whole foods. Eat heirloom foods when you can find/afford them. Limit sugars. Excercise.

I think at older ages for people who are already seeing effects of Alzheimer’s, disturbed sleep is probably a symptom for a lot of people. For younger and middle-age people, I’d 100% add “get a good night’s sleep” to your list on the bottom. I would also add big stars next to “exercise.”

Also eat a balanced diet. That’s important.

Do you ever have to get up early to catch a plane or have an early appointment?? It amazes me how many people this upsets. It's a stinking hour.

I will bite. What benefits, that have been proven by a peer reviewed study, do we get from eating heirloom foods?

Peer-reviewed studies=fake news

Might as well throw up a poll on the football board for opinions

Test this. See if it makes sense to you.

https://www.nourishingpensacola.com/...th-about-wheat

Or this.

https://jovialfoods.com/gluten-free/...n-sensitivity/

How do you think that the "Food Pyramid" guidelines have worked out for American health ? https://www.choosemyplate.gov/brief-...da-food-guides

I'd say that ADM, Monsanto, et al have been far better served than the people.


Would you eat the sh1t they serve in schools, hospitals, and nursing homes ?



Part of the nutritional deficiencies in modern foods come from mineral depletion of the soil, but genetic engineering for shelf life, appearance, growth cycle has resulted in less nutritious foods.

Peer-reviewed articles are nothing more than a liberal circle-jerk. Think for yourselves.

Also it’s 6:23 pm now and sun is setting causing it to shine in my eyes and putting glare on tv. We need to repel DST immediately so I can see this Netflix show I’m watching.

Disturbed sleep can come from low testosterone or old prostates, too. Sleep apnea in the inactive and overweight. Again, a symptom caused by conditions more prevalent among those that are approaching the Alzheimer’s bracket.

I've often heard that "bad oral hygiene causes heart disease", and stats are cited claiming support for the assertion...........but do you really think that some dumbazz that won't even brush and floss now and then is going to eat right and exercise, anyway ?

They can certainly be grossly inferior. They often are. Wheat is one of the few cases I can think of that GMO is actually shown to be detrimental.

No hard-and-fast rule there for me.

I buy gold potatoes all the time. Golden rice is a fantastic thing for po' folks.

Seriously. I did read your post.

There are some gross over-simplifications on those pages, and some silly language, but what would you actually dispute ? Anything ?

Sources reveal that in private conversations, the Steelers GM admits that DST was a factor in trading an All-Pro WR for a 3rd and 5th round draft pick.

Any correlation to Massillon's playoff state title drought and DST?

Sounds like a Hamilton Township football thread on the Huddle back in the day.

Back to the OP - I've never stressed out over it. Switching the time twice a year, keep it the same year-round, it's all the same to me.

Personally, I sleep better when it stays darker longer in the morning, and I like it already dark outside and cool when I hit the sack. Of course, when I was a kid playing outside, I wanted it to stay light forever, and I understand when folks say they want more daylight in the evening for activities from March to November.

Even if you stay with with DST year-round, that still will not account for the daylight shift due to the earth's polar tilt relative to the sun during it's orbit around old Sol. My theory is that DST was instituted to make daylight have a closer match to the clock. The only perfect way would be to make incremental adjustments to the clock each month, each week, or even each day - and think how difficult that would be logistically.

Zunardo sez - if you're going to have just one time standard, make it the Daylight Savings Time one, and leave it alone. You'll have to live with winter mornings being a lot darker later, but that's it.

* * * * *

Back to the justification for changing from Standard Time to DST - there's not as much as originally thought.

When we discussed this on the GB back in November, I did some research and learned the reasons I was taught in 4th grade - that it was to benefit farmers - weren't accurate. In fact:

"Agrarian interests led the fight for the 1919 repeal of national daylight saving time, which passed after Congress voted to override President Woodrow Wilson’s veto. Rather than rural interests, it has been urban entities such as retail outlets and recreational businesses that have championed daylight saving over the decades."

That's interesting stuff. When I was doing research for a college paper on dreams many years ago, some of the theories dealt with the brain doing a "defrag" on itself, taking new memories and reorganizing them, and that dreams were the by-product.

If the CSF flushing holds true, I wonder if that might not be related somehow to the dreaming function. There was hard data that dream-deprivation reduced brain function, and could cause irreparable damage if done too long.

Zunardo sez - yes, the change to DST and back does affect sleep - temporarily. We bounce back to normal routine in a day or two, certainly no more than a week. However, that does not impact folks who continually have poor sleep habits or who are sleep-deprived of their own doing.

And the CSF fluid theory also doesn't account for heredity and how folks are wired differently regarding sleep. But it certainly would add insight to how our marvelous brains were designed.

- Of the 8 siblings in my mother's family, 4 of them (including her) have developed dementia in their 60's and early 70's. The others did not; both their parents did not. I've read how you need less sleep as you get older; maybe that refers to early-onset dementia more than just getting older? I know Mom did not sleep normally the last two year before she passed. Frequently my sister would find her wandering around the basement at 2 AM.

- I have known executives in a few organizations who operate at a high-level, seemingly burning the clock at both ends. They sleep maybe 3 hours a night. I don't recommend it for everyone, but I do believe folks like that have brains that are able to compensate That's why they call them "driven".

Probably also explains why I was never executive material, lol. But then, I do like sleeping 6 to 8 hours a day.

* * * * * *

Anybody like particular music or sounds to help them fall asleep? Certain things hit my brain just right, and I will go right to sleep hearing them (hopefully while I'm not driving or using sharp tools!) - a metallic-bladed fan, wind through the trees, barber clippers, jet engines while in flight, etc.

I haven't read much about that that phenomenon - something about sleep spindles, and alpha or theta waves?

I find some New Age music, particularly synthesizers and sound effects, to be quite effective when I want to take a nap. The first 50 minutes of this Youtube video are a great example - the part from 21:00 to 51:00 is particularly hypnotic. Then I wake up, hit the sack, and I'm good for the night:

I propose that this should be standard time, and come the fall we should move our clocks ahead to give us an extra hour of light in the evenings during the winter months.
