News that Vexes

It's so tiresome to read 'new studies' that reveal Smoking, Stress or Obesity are Bad for you. Yet these studies appear all the time. It's time to take back the newswire from so-called Scientists!

Kids Doing Poorly in School May Be Sleep: "Kids Doing Poorly in School May Be Sleep"

This is silly on many levels, perhaps best because of its title, which I swear I did not edit.

Apparently Brown Medical School psychologist Gahan Fallone conducted this groundbreaking study. Among his conclusions:
- Sleepy youngsters have difficulty paying attention!
- Teachers can tell when students are sleepy! (Go Teachers!)
- There is an impact on students' performance if they come to school tired!

Oddly, Fallone isn't at Brown anymore; now he works at the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology. Draw your own conclusions...
