DailyDirt: Sleeping In Your Genes

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Getting enough sleep has different meaning for different people, even though most people need about 7-9 hours a night. The CDC only started looking at how much sleep Americans have been getting since 2009, but the trend seems to be less and less, unfortunately. An estimated 50-70 million Americans have chronic sleep or wakefulness disorders, so figuring out sleep and its genetic components could benefit a lot of people.

Re: Re:

Apparently it’s not so much this page as it is my version of Firefox has decided to start crashing on various sites for no apparent reason.

I really don’t understand this. I mean I know that by using an older version, some sites may not work correctly, but what I don’t understand is why this copy of Firefox seems to be degrading on an almost daily basis even though I haven’t changed anything. Even running it with a blank profile doesn’t stop the crashing. It worked yesterday morning on this site and now it crashes.
