attack of the baby squirrel, poor mcilroy, teens sleep deprived, bb

this is real scary
dont watch it alone
its not for the faint of heart
this menacing baby squirrel is in the attack mode

watch this video
shame shame
he was just after a nut or just wanted to play

the poor attack baby squirrel was captured and the pepper
spray was washed off
he was later released to attack again

poor mcilroy fell apart in the masters last round
he had played so brilliantly until then

then those white houses and trees got moved and placed in
his way
what a large fall he had on the scoreboard
it was painful to watch

then to add insult to injury the airlines lost all his clubs
on his last flight
maybe that wasnt a bad thing

a bad thing can be a good thing

this from a story by dr nancy snyderman nbc news
(did a rotation with her as a resident-she is an ent surgeon)
teens are sleep deprived
if you dont believe that just ask any middle school or
high school teacher
my wife she has to wake kids all the time
sometimes she has pity on them and just lets them sleep

what with computers, facebook, cell phones there is too much
going on to get that sleep
also many teenagers work jobs in the evenings and get home
late at night
guess jobs are more important than sleep and school
(will admit some of the kids are working to help support
themselves and their families)

seems teenagers need about 9 hrs and 15 min sleep a night
the average teen gets 7hrs and 30 min sleep a night

the frontal lobe is developing in the late teenage years and needs
that extra time to develop properly
thinking is that the lack of sleep leads to add, depression, and

teens get more sleep, decrease your caffeine use (no red bull or
lattes) and decrease the computer use, cell use, and social
networking that interferes with your sleep

yea right thatll happen

more basketball is coming
the nba playoffs are starting this weekend
(kobe keep your mouth shut please)

finals most would like to see is oklahoma city vs miami
mvp is derrick rose-no doubt about it
