Finally! An LED To Replace The 100W Incandescent Bulb

Finally! An LED To Replace The 100W Incandescent Bulb | Healthy Life | Scoop.it

By now, you’ve likely heard that the U.S. government is trying to phase-out of inefficient incandescent light bulbs. What you might not know is that after October 2012, the 100 watt incandescent bulb will cease to be manufactured. As one of the brightest and most popular bulbs, this is likely to be a surprise to those who haven’t yet tried LEDs or CFLs. Even more worrisome is that up until recently, there were no energy-efficient equivalents with which to replace it.

CFLs are notoriously dim and LEDs have been slowly working their way up the wattage scale. Now, we’re happy to report that a bonafied substitute for the 100W incandescent light bulb has finally arrived. Sylvania today announced the release of the new ULTRA LED omnidirectional A21 bulb. The A21 is the LED equivalent of an 100 watt traditional light bulb, yet consumes only 20-watts of electricity saving a bundle of energy and money over its long lifetime.

What Successful Night Owls Get Done Before Bed

Early birds get all the credit. Research indicates that morning people tend to be more active and goal oriented, and such larks as Steve Jobs, Craig Newmark of Craigslist, and 25-year old David Karp, founder of the Tumblr blogging platform suggest...
 

So does that mean night owls are at a disadvantage? Research by Satoshi Kanazawa and colleagues at the London School of Economics and Political Science suggests no. The group discovered significant differences in sleep preferences and found that people with higher IQs are more likely to be night owls. They found an evolutionary shift from being active in the day towards nightly pursuits and that those individuals who preferred to stay up late demonstrated "a higher level of cognitive complexity.” Researchers from Belgium and Switzerland studying sleep habits found that early risers needed more rest than their nocturnal counterparts and didn’t focus as well later in the day as those who slept in.
