TUESDAY, Sept. 8, 2015 (HealthDay News) Teens lose much-needed sleep after the time change in spring, raising concerns about their driving safety, a new study shows. Our study collected car crash data from the three states’ departments of public safety. We examined crash data for September through May for teens in the schools before and after the time change was initiated.

After the change to a later start time, the number of car crashes in the five districts studied decreased by 13%. “The time change has been known to leave many of us feeling fatigued, which can pose some safety risks at home and at the office. On the other hand, the time change can be a natural reminder of a few things we can do to make our lives safer,” says Kathy Konicki, Nationwide safety director. The time change can cause disruptions while our mind and body adapt to the new time and that disruption can extend to our driving. Safe Teen Driving Blog – Providing a solid base for teen drivers by improving behavior, attitude, skills and experience.

A 2015 study in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine found that teens lost significant sleep after the spring time change, and showed increased sleepiness, delayed reaction time, and more lapses. Whether we like it or not, digital devices are everywhere. Some of us can barely put them down, even when we’re with cherished family and friends.

While these devices can enhance learning and build community, they can also interfere with everything from sleep to creativity.

Environmental factors contribute to the health of adolescents. Adolescent behaviors are influenced at the individual, peer, family, school, community, and societal levels. 8 Because many sectors of society contribute to adolescent health, safety, and well-being, a collaborative effort that engages multiple partners is necessary.

Daylight Saving Time begins every year on the second Sunday in March, which in 2019 was March 10.

We “lose” an hour when the clocks are set forward (except in Hawaii and most of Arizona), and for many that means a tired couple of days as our bodies adjust. Many teens may try to use their driving time to eat their morning breakfast or drink coffee, to apply makeup, or to change the radio station. Many teens are distracted by the addition of passengers in the vehicle. Any distraction is a dangerous distraction.

Taking eyes off the road even for five seconds could cost a life.

Such changes can be disturbing even for the best-prepared teenager, especially when they manifest themselves outside the safety and reassurance of home or school.

  • Exorcism. When she was sick, likely a demon moved in. They are real…Evil is as real as the Good of God is real…Satan was banished to Earth with 13 Angels that fell with him…Evil is rampant on Earth..Demons are always looking for ways to influence control to cause negative energy…Anger, depression, violence..Those create negative Energy called “loosh” That they feed and thrive on. Love, Hope, Positivity, compassion…Those are The good Emotions hat keep us close to God & doing well…Those emotions destroy demons, starving them of loosh.This child is obviously being controlled by negative force. Never heard the parents mention God….The foolish virus of Atheism gives power to Satan….& makes innocent children vulnerable…Simply getting sick weakened her to being infiltrated & controlled. We MUST spend more energy in Prayer,..Giving LOVE…Being HAPPY…And Always..Thanks to GOD & do the best we can to always have allegiance love & respect for our holy father….THIS is the result of foolishly not doing so.

  • A promising researcher I’m sure, and I’m impressed she invested in the emotive headset with her own money. But for the presentation, she should explain how habituation, guilt and all the other statistics are measured. All she has are a few final graphs. How far is this generalizable? What method was used with EEG for detecting risk-taking? The presentation is lacking, full of assertions and statements with no statistics to show for it. Algorithms used?

  • Definitely Demonically Possessed, her parents don’t know god!
    Probably generational curse.
    See how she became sick first!
    That was the demon entering her and in festing her body, poor child!
    See how the child wants to kill herself!

    The child says she wants to be good, the real personality of this precious child crying out to her mother!

    She needs to go to a real church that cast out demons in the name of Jesus, only then will she be truly healed!

  • I gots some doubts about that research paradigm.

    Y’all gonna make inferences about actual risk-taking behaviour based on kids clicking on a computer terminal?


  • REMISNISCING my youth:
    On my 18th Birthday, I had served 4 months on the frontline (Korean War) with 5 more months to serve before being blown-away. Via Concussion during enemy counter-attrack.

    My service was volunteered, I join for the adventures, and the chance to travel.. When. The Korean War started, I amongst many other young soldiers volunteered to go, we ( we thought) wanted to see action

    (However if it had been humanly possible, we to a man, would’ve left the following day.) But once in a war, there’s only 2 or 3 ways a soldier could leave the battlefield.

    Anyway one of the first lessons of war I learned while there was I, (like any other African American soldier) was fighting for my life. and in my case, the fight for human-rights would be another fight for we, (African-Americans) who survive, in Korea it was teamwork and firepower that’ll be our best chance of survivor..

    Our stories is one of country best kept secrets:


  • She appears like she got a demonic spirit in her.Look in her eyes and sound of her voice. Bring her to a church to be prayed for. Read Ephesians chapter 6 in bible! There is a spiritual realm that we are dealing with.

  • I’ve translated this video into Arabic for TED talks, hoping to be useful for all Arabic speakers and others who are interested in.

  • Excitement, interest, and pleasure. Teens and the rest of us need them, the only issue is being happy without risking life changing harm. Schools and parents generally fail to feed the growing minds so the teens find their own excitement. Your little project illustrates directly how harmful activities can be replaced with meaningful excitement. Good going!
