Sleepy’s and Darkhorse Helping Our Veterans

We’re very excited about our recent partnership with Darkhorse Benefits, an organization that focuses on helping veterans and active duty special operations warriors get assistance and support in their search for a meaningful post-service career.

On May 4th, 2016, Darkhorse and Sleepy’s hosted a Veteran Career Fair and Workshop at our headquarters located in Hicksville, NY. This exclusive event provided key tips, tactics and strategies on applying military skills in business, interviewing skills, resume building, networking, and social media.  “Not a lot of companies help military veterans look and apply for jobs. Darkhorse is a free program that provides useful information and opportunities to find jobs at companies like yours. This kind of opportunity is really great for us.” said a veteran attendee.

Those interested in career opportunities in Information Technology, Operations, Customer Care, Sales, etc.  also had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with some of our hiring managers who were ready to interview all veterans seeking employment in these fields.

Face-Slapping Alarm Clock Refuses To Let You Sleep In

Simone Giertz describes herself as a professional maker and robotics enthusiast. She also acknowledges a special expertise in crummy robots. Her latest project is the stuff nightmares are made of. It’s a mechanized alarm clock that uses a fake arm to smack the sleeper awake.

The Wake-Up Machine is a DIY wall-mounted robot that you position above your head. When the alarm goes off, a rubber arm whips around, slapping you until you get up and get out of the way.

Giertz posted a video on November 11 that follows along with the build process. There’s enough information there to get you started on making a robo-alarm of your very own if you already have some maker tendencies.

Be Smart About Sleep

Small changes to your habits and lifestyle can have a big effect on sleep.

 

You might have heard some women talk about their biological clocks in regards to fertility; all living creatures have another type of internal clock, called the circadian rhythm. It refers to the 24-hour cycle of activity and sleep affected by the change from light to dark. A part of the brain called the hypothalamus manages the circadian rhythm, or pattern, by processing information (like when your eyes detect light) and creating sleep patterns. This sleep-wake cycle gives you the cue to go to sleep.

If you have trouble with sleep and insomnia, slightly adjusting your routine and habits may help.

Teens and Sleep

Sleep is food for the brain. During sleep, important body functions and brain activity occur. Skipping sleep can be harmful — even deadly, particularly if you are behind the wheel. You can look bad, you may feel moody, and you perform poorly. Sleepiness can make it hard to get along with your family and friends and hurt your scores on school exams, on the court or on the field. Remember: A brain that is hungry for sleep will get it, even when you don’t expect it. For example, drowsiness and falling asleep at the wheel cause more than 100,000 car crashes every year. When you do not get enough sleep, you are more likely to have an accident, injury and/or illness.
