One possibility is that Friday, Saturday, and Sunday nights may be spent in long and tiring entertainment. The resulting loss of sleep shows up in lower production on Monday.  Various tests indicate that loss of sleep is followed by poorer performance. It is true that very motivated people can do surprisingly well after long periods of staying awake. But they are able to do so only ady using up a great amount of energy.  People can lose sleep in two ways. They may go without any sleep for a long period. Or, they may sleep much less than usual for a period of several nights. In nne dxperiment, first of all, subjects were kept awake continuously for 72 hours. They were under medical care during this dangerous experiment. Even so, some fainted at the end. In another part of the experiment, the same subjects reduced the amount of their sleep from about 8 hours to about 5 hours a night for five nights. In  both cases, the subjects were given tests before and after the periods of no sleep or reduced sleep. Intelligence-test scores dropped only 24.5 percent following a period of 72 hours without sleep. However, the scores dropped only 14.9 percent following five nights with only 5 hour's sleep each night.  How much the individual swayed forward and backward when trying to stand still was also measured. After 72 hours without sleep, there was a 51.8 percent loss in control of bodily swaying. After five nights of 5 hours' sleep each, there was a loss of only 6.1 percent.  The amount of sleep a person needs varies with age. It also varies from individual to individual. But suppose it is absolutely impossible to get normal amounts of sleep. Studies have shown that it is better to take a number of short naps than to use all available sleeping time in one period. Other studies have found that performance drops in the early afternoon. One way of improving performance is to take a nap about halfway through the waking period. 以上です。

多くの場合、工場の生産性は、月曜日に低くなる傾向があります。 http://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=industrial+plant 火曜日か水曜日までには、労働者は「調子が整ってくる」ようです。 生産性は、その週で最高に達します。 1つの可能性は、金曜日、土曜日、日曜日の夜が、長くて疲れる娯楽に費やされるかもしれないということです。 結果として生じる睡眠不足が、月曜日に生産性の低下となって現れるのです。 様々な検査が、睡眠不足の後には業績が低下することを示しています。 大変やる気のある人が、長時間眠らずにいた後も驚くほどよく物事が出来ると言うのは本当です。 しかし、大きなエネルギー量を使い果たすことによってようやく彼らは、そうすることが出来ているのです。 ady/by? 人々は、2通りの方法で睡眠を失う可能性があります。 彼らは、長時間、睡眠なしで済ますのかもしれません。 あるいは、彼らは数夜にわたって、いつもより睡眠がずっと少ないのかもしれません。 どの実験においても、まず第一に、被験者は72時間連続的に眠らないようにされました。 nne dxperiment/any experiment? http://eow.alc.co.jp/search?q=subject&ref=sa 彼らは、この危険な実験の間、治療を受けられれ様になっていました。 それでも、何人かは最後には気絶しました。 実験のもう一つのパートでは、同じ被験者は、一晩に約8時間から約5時間の睡眠量を5夜にわたって減らしました。 どちらの場合も、被験者は睡眠を取らないまたは睡眠を減らした期間の前後に、テストを与えられました。 知能検査得点は、72時間睡眠を取らなかった後、24.5パーセントだけ低下しました。 しかし、得点は毎晩、5時間の睡眠だけで5夜過ごした後では、14.9パーセントしか低下しませんでした。 静止して立とうとした場合、個人がどの程度前後に体が揺らぐかと言うこともまた測定されました。 72時間睡眠を取らなかった後では、身体の揺れを制御する機能は51.8パーセント失われました。 5時間ずつ5夜睡眠を取った後では、6.1パーセントしか失われませんでした。 人が必要とする睡眠の量は、年齢と共に変化します。 それは、また、個人によっても変化します。 しかし、通常の量の睡眠をとることが全く不可能であると考えて下さい。 1つの期間にすべての利用できる睡眠時間を使うより、いくつかの短い仮眠をとる方がよいことを、調査は示しました。 他の調査では、成績が昼過ぎに減少することが明らかになりました。 成績を向上させる1つの方法は、起きている期間の中ほどあたりで仮眠を取ることです。



回答、ありがとうございます。 後半辺りからの知能テストの得点と身体の揺れを抑制する力のデータが少し混同しました。 睡眠の有無による生活への影響の大きさに驚きます。 URLの添付もありがとうございました。 http://oshiete.goo.ne.jp/qa/7380212.html http://oshiete.goo.ne.jp/qa/7380219.html

    That is the reason that Japanese workers work long hours, but Japan is the most unproductive country in the world. “Long hours” is an idiom that means a longer than usual or customary period of time for a given activity. “Unproductive” refers to labour productivity. Labour productivity is the gross national product divided by the number of hours worked.

    この文章を訳してください! According to Kripke findings, people who sleep between 6.5 and 7.5 hours a night live the longest.And people who sleep eight hours or more, or less than 6.5 hours, don't live quite as long. In other words, both sleeping too long and not sleeping long enough are associated with health risk. The big surprise is that what is defined as a long sleep seems to start at eight hours. Thus, sleeping 8.5 hours every night might actually be a little worse for a person's longevity than sleeping five hours. This suggests that we should reconsider tha idea that the more sleep we get, the more beneficial is the effect on the mind and body. To feel our best, it is important to get a sufficient amount of restful sleep, and, at the same time, to keep in mind that sex or seven hours of sleep a night is plenty.

    In the third period, the child makes rapid progress in increasing his or her vocabulary and learning new skills in discovering the meaning of unfamiliar words by the way the words are used in the reading material. In addition, children during this period of reading development learn to read for different purposes and in different subjects, such as science and history. They learn that reading, besides being something that one dose at school, is also something that one can do alone,for fun, for factual information, or to learn more about the world in general. Finally, in the fourth period, the student improves the skills that have been leaned. He or she develops the ability to connect ideas from one piece of writing to another, and learns to compare the opinions of different writers on the same subject. Young persons should reach the fourth period of reading by the time they are 13 or 14 years old, and, if they try, they can continue to increase their reading ability for the rest of their lives. They can read by themselves and are prepared to learn more about reading.

It is used by(A)as an escape from the world, and regarded by(B)as a irritating waste of time; but(C)can do without sleep completely.  Our night´s sleep does not just consist of a steady phase of gradually deepening sleep. It alternates between two stages: non-dreaming or ordinary sleep, and REM(rapid eye movement)or dreaming sleep.  As soon as we fall asleep we go straight into non-dreaming sleep for an hour or so, then into REM sleep for about 15 minutes, then back into non dreaming sleep. It alternates in this way for the rest of the night, with non-dreaming sleep tending to last longer at the beginning of the night. On-dreaming sleep occupies about three-quarters of our night´s sleep, about a quarter of it deep and the rest fairly light.  It is widely believed that sleep repairs the body and makes good the damage caused by being awake. But its main function is to refresh the brain. Experts believe that probably only about two-thirds of our sleep is necessary for repairing and refreshing the brain, with the most valuable sleep coming in the first few hours of the non- dreaming period: the last few hours of sleep are not so essential. The brain can manage quite well with reduced sleep as long as it is uninterrupted sleep.  The quality of sleep is important. A study conducted in the USA looked at short sleepers, who slept for 5.5 hours on average, and long sleepers, who had 8.5 hours or more. It was discovered after a variety of tests that the long sleepers were poor sleepers, had twice as much REM sleep as the short sleepers, appeared to sleep longer to make up for poor sleep, and did not wake up in the morning refreshed. Similarly, people who sleep deeply are not necessarily getting a better quality of sleep than shallow sleepers. Deep sleepers can feel tired the following days, so six hours of(D)sleep is worth more than eight hours of(E)sleep. 以上です。

If you are young, aging parents may not be your biggest concern, but they are a mojor concern for the governmental, social, and financial leaders of the world, particularly for those in japan. The parcentage of people over age 65 is increasing worldwide, from about 7 percent in 2005 to a predicted 15 percent by 2005. Japan already has one of the largest over-65 populations. According to population projections prepared by the Statistics Bureau of Japan's Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, 22.5 percent of the Japanese population was expected to be 65 or older in 2010. They expect that number ti increase to 33.2 percent by 2040, resulting in Japan having the largest percentage of over 65-year-old in the world. What effects will such an enormous number of elderly people have on society.

    Message body sleep apnea prevents you from getting a good night's sleep. many people wake up tired even after they believe they have had a full night's sleep, and end up dragging themselves all through the next day. sleep apnea not only reduces sleep quality, but it makes people feel tired during the day. you must try to recognize why you aren' sleeping soundly; sleep apnea may be one possible reason why. sleep apnea affects the way you breathe when you're sleeping. you may not even know the problem. in untreated sleep apnea, breathing stops for 10 to 20 seconds, and this occurs many times during the night. when a person stops breathing, oxygen levels in the blood decrease. whenever the person runs out of enough air to breathe, the brain sends alerting signals to raise the level of stress hormones, and tells the heart to work harder. this is often compared to racing a car engine that has been running for long periods of time. because of sleep apnea, the heart becomes ovewoed, and that can cause a heart attack. the more severe the sleep apnea, the Greater the chance of a heart attack.

    Many of America`s adolescents drive while drowsy, oversleep, and get sleepy in class: They are going through life sleep-deprived. Only 20 percent of teens get the recommended nine hours of shut-eye on school nights, and more than one in four report sleeping in class, according to the recent poll by the National Sleep Foundation. What`s more, the poll finds that parents are mostly in the dark about their adolescents` sleep habits. While most students know they`re not getting the sleep they need, 90 percent of parents polled believe their adolescents are getting enough sleep on school nights. A quick sampling of teens by a news reporter found the poll was on target, with most saying they have trouble getting up in the morning. 17-year-old Carl Woock is one of these typically tired teens. He let the reporter follow him through a typical weekday, during which exhaustion surfaced several times. It starts with an alarm clock and getting ready for school, where Carl`s classes in suburban Maryland start at the early hour of 7:30 am. For some, that`s just too early, and he often falls asleep in class. Thinking is one of the things that gets sacrificed without enough sleep. "In the competition between the natural tendency to stay up late and early school start times, a teen`s sleep is what loses out," said Dr.Jodi A. Mindell. Another researcher pointed out that puberty changes the body`s "circadian rhythm." She explained that an 8 to 10-year-old is able to fall asleep at 9 at night, but a 13 to 15-year-old has their circadian rhythm shifted, so that they`re not able to fall asleep until 12 at night naturally. She warned that there`s more in a teen`s life that`s affected by sleep deprivation. She said, "They are moody. Depression is a concern. It affects every aspect of their lives." Without enough sleep, a person has trouble focusing and responding quickly, according to the National Institutes of Health. The agency also said there is growing evidence linking a continuous lack of sleep with an increased risk of serious illness. The National Sleep Foundation reported that nearly all youngsters have at least one electronic item, such as a television, computer, or phone in their bedrooms. Adolescents with four or more such items in their bedrooms are much more likely than their peers to get an insufficient amount of sleep at night. They are also almost twice as likely to fall asleep in school and while doing homework. For many teens, one solution to the problem comes in a cup, with many saying they drink lots of coffee. The caffeine may help teens perk up during the day, but it might be only masking the underlying biological reason for their sleep habits. Teens might want to take some advice from experts, who recommend saying goodbye to the entertainment zone in the bedroom, cutting out caffeine after lunchtime, setting up a daily sleep and wake-time routine, and being aware that trying to catch up on your sleep at weekends upsets your natural body rhythm.

    There is some evidence that these improvements in the characteristics of elders have resulted in more positive views of aging. Tibbitts claimed that during the past 30 to 40 years, U.S. society has moved from holding negative stereotypes of old people to holding positive views in which elders are seen as being able to contribute to the quality of life for themselves, their communities, and society as a whole. Schonfield even argued that the assumption of negative attitudes toward old people is a "social myth" perpetuated by the gerontological literature. We will be examining these attitudes in derail in Chapter 2, but there does appear to be a substantial shift from negative to positive attitudes. The improvements in the physical, mental,social, and economic characteristics of elders have been so marked, and there have been so many programs and services developed for elders only, that many have begun to criticize these programs as discrimination in favor of the aged, or positive ageism. We will be discussing examples of positive ageism throughout this book; but the ones that have drawn most criticism so far are the Medicare program and some features of the Social Security System, such as the automatic cost of living increases in benefits and the tax-exemption of Social Security benefits for most elders. Perhaps these programs have been criticized the most because they involve the most money. Critics are beginning to argue that since elders are no longer deprived economically and since they are now much better off mentally, physically, and socially than they were in the past, it is no longer necessary or fair to continue the enormous expense of these special supports and programs available only to elders. Some argue that the way to reduce positive ageism is to make these supports and programs available to all ages on the basis of need. For example, they recommend that the national health insurance, which only elders now enjoy, be extended to all ages. It is clear that positive ageism is becoming an important issue and promises to become even more important as we are faced with more older people and more expensive programs for "seniors only."

    英語が訳せず困っています。 スポーツ健康科学系の論文なのですが、統計分析のところで訳が出来ず詰まってしまいます。 なんとか辞書や専門用語の教科書などで訳したところも、いまいち意味が通じず、合っているのかもわかりません。この文章に既に何日もかかっています。 長文で申し訳ありませんが、お力を貸して頂きたいです。 内容は肥満者が減量した後のリバウンドの経緯を3つのグループに分けて18ヶ月間調査したというものです。 Data were analyzed using SPSS for Windows version 13.0 (21). Descriptive statistics are presented as means ± standard deviation (SD). Group differences on continuous variables assessed at baseline were evaluated using analyses of variance (ANOVA) with weight loss method as the grouping variable. Chi square tests were used to examine group differences on categorical variables. Group differences in weight regain at 6, 12, and 18 months were evaluated using analyses of variance (ANOVA) with weight loss method as the between subjects factor. Group differences across time in overall percent weight loss (initial weight loss and maintenance) were evaluated using repeated measures ANOVA, with weight loss method as the between subjects factor and percent weight reduction from maximum weight (at baseline, 6, 12, and 18 months) as the within subjects factor. Participants lost to follow-up were assumed to have gained .30 kilograms per month, as has been used in prior studies (10, 22, 23). Analyses were first conducted without adjustments for covariates and were then adjusted for variables found to differ at baseline (p<.10) across weight loss method, including gender, baseline weight, intentional weight loss (cycling) history, baseline percent fat intake, and percent weight reduction at baseline (i.e., initial weight loss). Analyses were also adjusted for duration of weight loss maintenance and STOP Regain treatment group (face-to-face intervention, internet intervention, newsletter control). Repeated measures ANOVAs with weight loss method as the between subjects factor and time (baseline and 6 months) as the within subjects factor were used to examine group × time interactions for dietary intake, physical activity, depressive symptoms, and eating behavior. Tests of significance were based on alpha of .05. For repeated measures analyses, Greenhouse-Geisser correction was used, where appropriate, to adjust for sphericity. Bonferroni adjustment was applied to main effect and simple effect post-hoc contrasts. 統計解析の部分の抜粋です。 自力で訳したところもあるのですが不安なので全て書き込みました。 長文ですが宜しくお願い致します!!
