Sleep Deprived? 3 Tricks to Get Through the Day

Sleep Deprived? 3 Tricks to Get Through the Day | The Future Is Now - SAY IT WITH ME! | Scoop.it

Maybe you have a newborn at home or maybe it's that insane week before an impossible deadline. Whatever the ultimate cause of your sleep deprivation, occasionally we all have times in our lives when we can't heed the sensible advice of experts to get enough sleep.

 

When these crunch times hit, you might feel like curling up into a little ball under your desk and sleeping away the day, but unfortunately you need to find a way to soldier on. Science can help. New York Magazine's consistently fascinating Science of Us column recently reached out to sleep researchers to round up advice on what to do when you've had a really, really lousy night's sleep.

 

All of these scientists stressed that consistently sleeping less than seven or eight hours a night is a truly terrible idea, but they did have tips to offer for these emergency situations, which writer Melissa Dahl organized into a helpful timeline for the sleep deprived. Here are a few of the tips you'll find in the complete post:

No one manages to get eight hours all the time, so sleep researchers offer advice on powering through your most exhausted days.

Ellen Naylor's curator insight, August 27, 2014 11:45 AM

I prefer to get enough sleep. When I don't I find that being out in the sun helps. I also find a short 15 minute nap can go a long way. I wonder how you master those days when you're sleep deprived? It's unfortunately such a common phenomenon. I read that 1 in 6 fatal driving accidents is caused by sleep deprivation in the US.

Google “Knowledge Vault” To Power Future Of Search

Google “Knowledge Vault” To Power Future Of Search | The Future Is Now - SAY IT WITH ME! | Scoop.it

Sensationally characterized as “the largest store of knowledge in human history,” Knowledge Vault is being assembled from content across the internet without human editorial involvement. “Knowledge Vault autonomously gathers and merges information from across the web into a single base of facts about the world, and the people and objects in it,” says New Scientist. Google has reportedly assembled 1.6 billion “facts” and scored them according to confidence in their accuracy. Roughly 16 percent of the information in the database qualifies as “confident facts.”

 Indeed, the article speaks of Knowledge Vault as the basis for future artificial intelligence applications, machine-to-machine communication, augmented  reality, predictive models and virtual assistant use cases

Nearly every digital marketer has a goal of creating a viral campaign. Getting mass exposure for high-quality content provides huge value to clients, but it’s not always easy to pull off; it takes an understanding of the complexity of human emotion and how it plays into consuming and sharing content online.

Feldman is a "creative thinker," one of the key entrepreneurial strengths identified by significant new research into entrepreneurship. Over five years, Gallup, the global research and consulting firm, studied more than 4,000 founders to understand the talents that foster business creation and growth, and determined the 10 most significant. The organization then created an online assessment tool to measure those talents in individuals. The tool is the latest iteration of Gallup's very popular StrengthsFinder methodology, introduced by Marcus Buckingham and Donald O. Clifton in their 2001 best-selling book, Now, Discover Your Strengths.
