CHICAGO Nike Air Max Thea Print Natural Rød Norge , Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- Research conducted by the University of Michigan (UM) and the Leuven School for Mass Communication Research in Belgium found that higher binge-viewing frequency leads to poorer sleep quality, more fatigue and increased insomnia.

Regular TV viewing does not have this problem, the research concluded.

Researchers surveyed 423 adults between the ages of 18 to 25 in February 2016, asking about their sleep quality, fatigue and insomnia, as well as the frequency of binge watching programs on a TV Herre Nike Air Max Thea Print Blå Hvit Salg Norge , laptop or desktop computer for the last month.

Some 81 percent of the respondents reported that they had binge-watched. Of this group, nearly 40 percent did it once during the month preceding the study, while 28 percent said they did it a few times. About 7 percent had binge-viewed almost every day during the preceding month. Men binge-watched less frequently than women, but the viewing session nearly doubled that of women.

Respondents indicated they slept seven hours and 37 minutes on average, and those who binge-viewed reported more fatigue and poor sleep quality compared to those who didn't binge-watch.

Liese Exelmans, the study's lead author and a researcher at the Leuven School for Mass Communication Research Herre Nike Air Max Thea Blå Glow Norge Tilbud , said people might sleep an appropriate amount of time, seven to nine hours for adults, but the quality is not always good.

The study showed that increased cognitive arousal prior to sleep is the mechanism explaining the effects of binge viewing on sleep quality.

After binge-watching TV shows, one usually has a racing heart or one that beats irregularly, and is mentally alert. This can create arousal, which in turn prolongs sleep onset and leads to poor sleep quality.

"Our study signals that binge viewing is prevalent in young adults and that may be harmful to their sleep Dame Nike Air Max Thea Print Natural Rosa Norge ," said co-author Jan Van den Bulck, communication studies professor at UM.

Sleep insufficiency has been connected to physical and mental health consequences, including reduced memory function and learning ability, obesity, hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

TOKYO, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- Japan's central bank chief Haruhiko Kuroda said Thursday that the recent surge in the price of bitcoin is "abnormal."

The Bank of Japan Governor made the remarks at a press conference following the central bank's two-day policy meeting.

In Japan Dame Nike Air Max Thea Print Rosa Hvit Nettet , the price of the bitcoin topped 2 million yen (17,640 U.S. dollars) earlier this month on a major exchange, registering a 20-fold jump since January when it changed hands around 100,000 yen (882 U.S. dollars).

"It's not my place to say, but if you look at the charts, it's clear that the jump (in prices) is abnormal Dame Nike Air Max Thea Foil Rosa Hvit Norge ," Kuroda reportedly said.

He also said that bitcoin, unlike conventional currencies, is not controlled by a central bank or government and "does not have the same function as currency as a means of payment or settlement."

Bitcoin is "being traded for investment or speculative purposes," he said.

Bitcoin is a major digital currency without ties to any bank or government. It is underpinned by blockchain technology, a digital ledger system that uses cryptography.

Credibility of the virtual currency has been a concern to many people, especially after the sudden shutdown in 2014 of the Japanese bitcoin exchange MtGox Co..

The virtual currency has also raised controversy over its potential use for money laundering and capital flight Nike Air Max Thea Print Natural Grå Blå Norge , as it allows users to spend and transfer money anonymously.

Police said last month that 170 cases of suspected money laundering linked to cryptocurrency included bitcoin were reported in Japan from April through September.

Japan revised its law last year to regulate the dealings of virtual currencies including bitcoin, so as to prevent their use in terrorism or money laundering and protect the interests of the owners.

According to the revised law, virtual currencies could be used for settlement. But exchanges dealing virtual currencies shall be registered with the Financial Services Agency.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) -- U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said on Tuesday that Washington is willing to begin talks with the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) "without pre-condition."

"We're ready to have the first meeting without precondition," Tillerson told a policy forum at the Atlantic Council, a Washington-based think tank.

"Let's just meet Nike Air Max Thea Print Hvit Norge ," the top U.S. diplomat told an audience of around 300. "We can talk about the weather if you want. We can talk about whether it's going to be a square table or a round table."

"Can we at least sit down and see each other face to face, and then we can begin to lay out a map, a road map, of what we might be willing to work towards," Tillerson said, changing the tough tone long being held by the Trump administration and suggesting some initial contacts to set the ground rules for further negotiations.

Tillerson noted that a dialogue is possible whenever Pyongyang is ready.

Tillerson's remarks came two weeks after the DPRK successfully test-fired a newly developed Intercontinental Ballistic Missile Nike Air Max Thea Print Svart Hvit Nettbutikk , drawing strong condemnation from the international community.

Washington and Pyongyang has been exchanging harsh rhetoric in the past months, with U.S. President Donald Trump threatening to rain down . Wholesale Soccer Jerseys   Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping   Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping   Cheap NHL Jerseys   Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping   Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping   Wholesale Soccer Hoodie   Wholesale Hockey Hoodie   Wholesale NCAA Hats   Wholesale Basketball Hats
