Antarctica's melt quickens, risks meters of sea level rise: study

More U.S. adults losing sleep in recent years
28 December 2018 - One third of U.S. adults say they sleep less than six hours a night, which is 15 percent more than were getting too little sleep 15 years ago, researchers say. The trend toward increasing numbers of people getting too little shuteye started in 2013, the study team reports in the journal Sleep.
