Can't capture that elusive eight hours of sleep?  Waking up in the middle of the night restless?  It may be what you're eating during the day that is stopping you.  Here are seven things that may be robbing you of the sleep you need.  And sleep is crucial for your well-being.  Caffeine.  This may be a no-brainer, but many are surprised by how soon they should stop drinking caffeinated beverages.  It is suggested that you stop after lunch if you want to get a good night's rest.  Also, keep in mind that foods like chocolate also contain caffeine. High Fat Foods.  These have been linked to poor quality of sleep. Fat triggers the build up of stomach acids that, when lying down, can cause uncomfortable acid reflux. A high fat diet also interferes with the production of orexin, one of the neurotransmitters that helps regulate your sleep/wake cycle along with melatonin. Water.  If you want to avoid middle-of-the night bathroom trips, it is good to refrain from drinking too much water late at night.  Keep in mind that some foods like watermelon, tea, parsley and even decaffeinated coffee contain diuretics that push more water through your system as well. Alcohol. Alcohol ma...

The objective of this study was to develop a simple method for detecting lipid oxidation through the color change of a composite film. Schiff's reagent which can form color compound with lipid oxidation products—aldehydes was incorporated into polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) to form the composite film. The effects of PVA molecular weight (Mw), Schiff's reagent/PVA ratio and glycerol content on the response of the composite film to aldehyde were investigated. Sunflower seed oil with various extent of oxidation was used to evaluate the effectiveness of the composite film for lipid oxidation detection. The results showed that t...

Publication date: Available online 20 January 2020Source: Reactive and Functional PolymersAuthor(s): Yongli Zhang, Jing Tang, Keke Feng, Huilin Zhao, Weiwei Yan, Zhiming Sun, Fuming Wu, Yu Sun, Jianping GaoAbstractInverse opal hydrogel films composed of hydroxyethyl 2-methacrylate and phenylboronic acid (IOHGHEMA+3APBA) were prepared by a convenient ultrasonic-induced self-assembly method. The IOHGHEMA+3APBA films had brilliant blue-violet color when they were immersed in deionized water and reached swelling equilibrium. The IOHGHEMA+3APBA films were used as sensors to detect chemicals with similar structures. When the IOH...

The as-prepared Zn-CoOx exhibited good response, reliable reversibility and good selectivity towards alcohols, which attributed to the porous structure and p-n heterojunction formed between Co3O4 and ZnO. In particular, the different Fermi levels of Co3O4 and ZnO leaded to a further increase the depth of the space charge layer, which improved the...

Water-stable poly(vinyl alcohol)/polyethylenimine (PVA/PEI) nanofibers were fabricated through electrospinning and evaluated for Cr(VI) removal from water in batch experiments. The adsorption behavior and removal mechanisms of Cr(VI) by PVA/PEI nanofibers were systematically investigated through a combination of b...

MangiliAbstractThis paper deals with the design of two new, intensified pressure-swing flowsheets for the separation of di-n-propyl ether and n-propanol based on direct heat integration and vapor recompression. Such alternatives are then compared with the conventional scheme regarding thermoeconomic performance and environmental impacts. The thermodynamic evaluation was based on the processes’ energy consumptions, exergetic efficiencies and exergy intensities. The economic analy...

A previously healthy, well-appearing 42-year-old female living in a modern, high-rise apartment in downtown Los Angeles calls 9-1-1 at 5:30 am complaining of worsening of a burning, epigastric pain she had been experiencing for the last three days. She reports associated nausea and non-bloody, non-bilious vomiting, and that she couldn’t manage to get comfortable in bed until she finally decided to call for help at daybreak. During her 9-1-1 call, she reports “pain, like heartburn, that just woke me up again and I had to throw up, … and then I was sweating so much.” Using the Los Angeles Tiered Disp...
