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. Pediatrician Michael Rich, wants to understand how—and help children and parents manage their online behavior in this. Societal Influences on Adolescents and Young Adults.

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!

  • My teacher from SS: I’m going to email your parents, and I am giving you a conduct reflection.


  • Please trust GOD YAHWEH and YESHUA his son,to many of our children are druged up,and giving diagnosis,that r false,get more opionns go the Natral way like what she is eating,diet,they r puting bad stuff in the foods and drinks and vaccines,be cautious,I know it hard but this is how it is now!

  • This is obviously a form of ADHD because I have ADHD and when I’m not on my medication and don’t get what I want I can get physical and even put marks dent or even holes in my door and I guess my stubbornness doesn’t help with it

  • Oh dear god bless her and her family dear lord take the demon off this family lord. In the name of the lord I wish to rebuke the demon over this little girl and her home

  • I got strep as a child then developed OCD. I just remember always having my rituals and intrusive thoughts to be honest-it wasn’t until I was 16 that my disorder got so severe that I started to take medications for it. I’m 26 now, still on medication, but doing so much better. I hope this little girl is doing better too!

  • I have PANS similar to PANDAS, but mine was caused by mold. It happened so suddenly, it was the most terrifying thing I’ve ever went through. I was still me, yet something had dramatically changed. It was so terrifying. And, it’s not mental illness, its antibodies attacking your brain and it can be cured. My parents called it OCD at first, but when it started to get really bad, they realized it could be PANS or PANDAS. I’m not going to go into details but all I can say is it is the most terrifying thing that somebody can experience.

  • Spoken like a true american, presenting risk as something bad, and glorifying guilt. Perheps her subjects, like her, got more comfortable with the risk, and felt a mastery over it. Would love to see if this was discussed further in her work

  • Allergies can cause depression which can effect teens which is dangerous because it makes you feel upset lazy and pain, drinking tea can reduce these and seeing a doctor

  • Risky behavior isn’t all bad. It depends on what someone learns from it. Someone that never takes risks lives in a very sheltered world and probably will be ineffective in dealing with certain things. To put it another way, there’s an evolutionary reason why risky behavior happens and what is considered negative or positive has some gray areas based on one’s cultural biases.

  • Good talk, but isn’t there a little bit of brain-shaming going on here:-).

    I think back on my time as a teenager and maybe the dumb risky things that we did had something to do with incomplete brain chemistry, but if I remember right it was a combination of learning something for ourselves being an important form on knowledge (which also means that we didn’t know any better), failing to understand just how permanent permanent actually is (aka casts are cool), and holding people who take great risks in high regard (the Evel Knievel effect). That last one is quite important to teenage boys because once we grasp an understanding of the men we are hoping to become we also start to realize just how far we have to go and how lacking we may be, so anything which proves to ourselves or our peers just how strong and/or indestructible we are is a good thing. Unless it kills you.

  • Excellent presentation. However, I am concerned with a girl from any strict background defining ‘risk’ and ‘habituation’. This seems like a scientific end-run around liberty to dogma. Prohibition doesn’t create discipline; experience and learning teach discipline, hence the phrase, ‘live and learn’. Great job, despite my concerns. Keep learning. Keep teaching. You are an amazing young lady.

  • Also putting meds on kids it might cause issues, your child can have a medical issue don’t put kids on meds until you see a physical doctor number one rule doctors keep hidden to pill push

  • Issue her a blank cheque and say “go, do science”. Check in every couple of years to make sure that she’s actually doing science with the money. Easy.

  • Interesting experience and good talk. I think a lot of the downvotes might not have watched all the way through to Ms. Rahman’s conclusion.

    There is definitely a need for positive risk taking; we need to test ourselves in order to learn what we are capable of. That’s the very definition of taking risks, isn’t it? When we’re young it’s good for our immune systems to go outside and play in the mud. When we’re teens, doing stupid things helps build a knowledge base of sorts that allows you to better gauge risks, and the resilience to take them when appropriate. Like all things, too much of either can be harmful, of course, but with parents to help moderate, they can be good for you in the long run.

    My one real criticism is the mention of policy. Children and teens need to learn to resolve their own conflicts without the intervention of adults or the state all the time.

  • The hijab is a fascist hate symbol, it literally means “kill the infidels” & is insulting to all non-muslims. Allowing a hijabi this platform, is like giving this platform to someone wearing a swastika or a KKK hood.

  • its the same for the adults, the increased frequency of high impact headlines causes desensitization to major tragedies. I understand that it may be surprising, but the results seem standard with any other task. The more you challenege yourself, the less that challenge is the next time you do it.

  • Them:Imagine it’s my house
    Me: hell to da no and the child’s perants must moer her coz I wouldn’t have kept my cool with her if that was my child.

  • THE COLUMBINE SHOOTERS MOM GETS A CLIP. That loser should be jailed! No comments allowed so I’ll leave a comment on every video! DO NOT CELEBRATE LOSER PARENTS THAT STOOD IN THE WAY OF HELP, when parents are responsible for their kids actions then we will see less death! SICKENING TO APPLAUD COLUMBINES SHOOTERS MOM SHAME,

  • Occam’s razor states that the simplest explanation is usually the correct one. They need a psychologist for this girl. Could she have been sexually abused?

  • RUSH.
    I used to be an adrenaline junkie and then started experimenting with drugs.
    Taking risks gives you a high but soon it did not cause enough rush.
    Taking more risk and chances until something happens and consequences.
    This is when I started experimenting with drugs.
    Until consequences,
    Leaving all this behind lead to depression which took a lot of time and routine to get over.

  • So cool. Kids have fun doing things nice and repeat doing it because it was fun in the first place. It almost seems as if the absence of negative feedback benefitted negative behaviour. Like a dog that begs and gets treats. WOW. I really needed to do studies to figure that out.

  • Thanks mom and dad for not letting me do stuff that was considered normal for growing up. I’m cynical af and have high anxiety. ;/

  • She needs PRAYER and deliverence not drugs,they will make you worse,they will use u like a Ginny pig,get to,don’t send her away she is too young they can,rape her she needs the LORD YAHWEH and YESHUA that’s your help he is our Savior and delivere,healer and provider, protection but we have to pray and do our part we live in an evil world not perfect,also speak GODs WORD over her pray the LORD YAHWEH holy Obedient Angels over her,get to a SPIRIT filled pastor,they will pray for her! Don’t give up on her keep her home with u show her love continual Trust the LORD YAHWEH and YESHUA Always for your answer s ask the LORD to forgive all your sins or Iniquity s any thing in your past,be careful who u let around your family,if you r not in the LORD who CREATED the HEAVENS and the EARTH give your life to him completely and he will help you!������������������

  • America is a country born and still deeply based on risk. Settlers risked all to move to hostile new land. Patriots risked breaking from Britain. Yet more immigrants risked coming to America with little to nothing to ensure they would prosper, even to this very day. Buying a house is a risk, as is driving a car or opening your own business. Risk is a component in human nature.

    Also, some people have nothing available to them but take risks.

    Anyways, good luck on your next research product.

  • I know exactly how this poor baby feels and she cant even control it. I get that as well. I have anger issues (but I can’t talk about it with my counselor because my mom tells me what to tell her so she basically can’t get me diagnosed)

  • I wonder what’d happen were this to be tested on adults.
    Oh, and she should make that simulator open to use, I’d happily contribute data.

  • Didint she essentially increase the risk taking measures of the kids of the trial leaving them more likely themselves to take dangerous risks ��

  • I’m nearly 49 years old. I took lots of risks when I was a kid and a young adult. I learned to chill out over the years, but I probably should have not made it this far. People will tell you the “rules” but you can’t know the real rules unless you push the limits…that goes for for man’s rules and nature’s rules. If you aren’t pushing something or someone then you aren’t living!

  • It took about several minutes for me to find phrase “Carrot and stick” in Google. It’s no need to perform month-lenght research to understand the same thing that is commonly known for thousands of years. You are trying to do something and you can have “stick strike” or a “carrot” as a result. If your action was rewarded by “carrot” (by accomplishment) despite of being risky (especially if you actually cannot value the risk properly due to lack of experience), you will try to repeat it or even do more risky things. Just because it was rewarded by accomplishment. If there was a failure, especially a big one, with long and painful consequences, you will thing twice before doing something like this again.
    So I can conclude that making “safier” environments only will encourage young people to escalate risky actions. The working way is to make “non-fatal” environments, which is different approach. In this case wrong actions will cause painful, but not forever-debilitating consequences, and will teach youngs to value risks more adequately.

  • Very small sample size, and no orthogonal method. And she jumped to a conclusion. I don’t know much about social sciences, however I am sure this was no close to science.

  • Bro why does everyone think that its either
    1. A spirit attached to her or
    2. She being a brat (well she is but not cause she wants to)
    I think that this is PANDAS. Its when your immune system attacks your brain so it really messes you up. You cant control your actions. Its pretty easily curable but if left untreated it can be potentialy deadly, better to have her checked for that!

  • Teenagers like taking risks because their parents are gonna take most of the consequences and work hard to fix their son/daughter’s mistakes

  • I hate it when doctors say “nothing serious”
    Many people have died because the doctors think all simple symptoms are not that serious

    Edit: I’m black and every time I have a tantrum, my mom slaps the sense back into me ����

  • Without comparing her data on teens to other age groups, it’s hard to accept her findings as being unique to teens. Common sense would suggest that ‘habituation’ would also occur for adults to some degree. The difference between the age groups will illuminate what is special about the teenage brain. Hopefully she can continue to refine her project with more data.

  • Such a great hope for the future. I was able to show “Science Fair” to my middle school students and hope it inspires them to dream big. Keep up the research!

  • Hello!
    My name is Ibrahim, I am from Syria.I am studying English language to be able to study in my department ( Electrical engineering).My problem is that I didn’t find anyone to speak English with him / here ��. I must improve my English.Can you help me please? ����

  • I loved this talk! This girl is a true inspiration, her love for science and research, her creativity and determination, and her curiosity… Keep it up! As a Muslim I am happy that you were able to overcome the obstacle of stereotypes and be who you want to be!

  • 1st place winner of science fair. What makes teens big risk takers. Teens lack self control in decision making, they seek excitement, interest and pleasure. Risk taking physically changes a teens brain and leads to more risk taking. #TedTalk https://twitter.com/tedstalkin

  • Lack of maturation is damn near negligible compared to high testosterone that most teen boys have. This is why teen girls are years ahead of their male peers

  • Suppose that you were sitting down at this table. The napkins are in front of you, which napkin would you take? The one on your ‘left’? Or the one on your ‘right’? The one on your left side? Or the one on your right side? Usually you would take the one on your left side. That is ‘correct’ too. But in a larger sense on society, that is wrong. Perhaps I could even substitute ‘society’ with the ‘Universe’. The correct answer is that ‘It is determined by the one who takes his or her own napkin first.’ …Yes? If the first one takes the napkin to their right, then there’s no choice but for others to also take the ‘right’ napkin. The same goes for the left. Everyone else will take the napkin to their left, because they have no other option. This is ‘society’… Who are the ones that determine the price of land first? There must have been someone who determined the value of money, first. The size of the rails on a train track? The magnitude of electricity? Laws and Regulations? Who was the first to determine these things? Did we all do it, because this is a Republic? Or was it Arbitrary? NO! The one who took the napkin first determined all of these things! The rules of this world are determined by that same principle of ‘right or left?’! In a Society like this table, a state of equilibrium, once one makes the first move, everyone must follow! In every era, this World has been operating by this napkin principle. And the one who ‘takes the napkin first’ must be someone who is respected by all. It’s not that anyone can fulfill this role… Those that are despotic or unworthy will be scorned. And those are the ‘losers’. In the case of this table, the ‘eldest’ or the ‘Master of the party’ will take the napkin first… Because everyone ‘respects’ those individuals.

  • Besides this mysterious fever that possibly triggered this child’s change of behavior, I wonder if the parents should do a DNA test to see if either side of their families have any heredity mental illness such as schizophrenia. I don’t think it’s the child’s or the parents fault, I think it’s something happening to her brain. Even though it was hard for the parents, they made the right choice to turn her in to the psychiatric ward so the child won’t be a danger to them and others. But I feel for the family, the child is suffering and the parents are suffering for having to force themselves to give her up to the psych ward. ����

  • Well ya I had tantrums too when I was little threw stuff cryed but it never got any too far when I stopped I said I love you and gave a hug but I would never go to far

  • Thankfully, I mostly hung out with nerds during middle-high school. The riskiest thing I ever did was lying that I’ve watched the latest Star-Trek episode.
