Napping

A large new study has found that people who regularly took a siesta were significantly less likely to die of heart disease.

“Taking a nap could turn out to be an important weapon in the fight against coronary mortality,” said Dimitrios Trichopoulos of the Harvard School of Public Health in Boston, who led the study published yesterday in the Archives of Internal Medicine.

The study of more than 23,000 Greek adults — the biggest and best examination of the subject to date — found that those who regularly took a midday siesta were more than 30 percent less likely to die of heart disease.

Other experts said the results are intriguing. Heart disease kills more than 650,000 Americans each year, making it the nation’s No. 1 cause of death.

“It’s interesting. A little siesta, a little snooze may be beneficial,” said Gerald Fletcher, a cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla., speaking on behalf of the American Heart Association. “It’s simple, but it has a lot of promise.”

While more research is needed to confirm and explore the findings, there are several ways napping could reduce the risk of heart attacks, experts said.

“Napping may help deal with the stress of daily living,” said Michael Twery, who directs the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute’s National Center on Sleep Disorders Research. “Another possibility is that it is part of the normal biological rhythm of daily living. The biological clock that drives sleep and wakefulness has two cycles each day, and one of them dips usually in the early afternoon. It’s possible that not engaging in napping for some people might disrupt these processes.”

Researchers have long known that countries such as Greece, Italy, and Spain, where people commonly take siestas, have lower rates of heart disease than would be expected. But previous studies that attempted to study the relationship between naps and heart disease have produced mixed results. The new study is first to try to fully account for factors that might confuse the findings, such as physical activity, diet, and other illnesses.

Delivering packages with drones can reduce carbon dioxide emissions in certain circumstances as compared to truck deliveries, a new study from University of Washington transportation engineers finds.

In a paper to be published in an upcoming issue of Transportation Research Part D, researchers found that drones tend to have carbon dioxide emissions advantages over trucks when the drones don’t have to fly very far to their destinations or when a delivery route has few recipients.

Trucks — which can offer environmental benefits by carrying everything from clothes to appliances to furniture in a single trip — become a more climate-friendly alternative when a delivery route has many stops or is farther away from a central warehouse.

For small, light packages — a bottle of medicine or a kid’s bathing suit — drones compete especially well. But the carbon benefits erode as the weight of a package increase since these unmanned aerial vehicles have to use additional energy to stay aloft with a heavy load.

  • In a research paper published by University of Washington, Drones have proved to be more environmental friendly for delivering small packages at short distances, while trucks are best for larger distances or large loads or deliveries requiring many stops.

  • Experiment performed on 23000 greek adults by Dimitrios Trichopulos of Hardvard suggest that taking mid- day nap reduces the risk of heart diseases, which kills around 650000 americans every year, while other say it has lot of potential but require further study.

  • A small midday nap could potentially lower’s the cardiac related diseases, as per the study it was concluded that people of some European countries have low chances of heart diseases as their average napping is more than other nations; however previous study has found mixed reasons on heart diseases.

    Author kindly review my summary

  • Although, research shows that taking a nap and having a midday siesta help mitigate the risk of heart diseases and death but the new study made, is first to try to fully account for factors that might confuse the findings, such as physical activity, diet, and other illnesses.

    • A new study from the University of Washington transportation Engineers, finds that the use of drones have less carbon-dioxide emission compared to the use of trucks.

      • A new study from the University of Washington transportation Engineers, finds that the use of drones in delivering packages have less carbon-dioxide emission compared to the use of trucks.

  • Delivering packages with drones as compared to trucks are more beneficial because of less carbon dioxide emissions, according to new study but for heavy loads and far distances trucks are helpful and environment friendly.

    Kindly review Author..

  • A new study from University of Washington transportation engineers found that drones which reduce the carbon dioxide emissions in certain circumstances while delivering small and light packages as compared to truck deliveries but truck is more climate-friendly alternative when a delivery route has many stops.

  • Delivering packages with drones can reduce carbon dioxide emissions in certain circumstances as compared to truck deliveries,however, the carbon benefits erode as the weight of a package increase since these unmanned aerial vehicles have to use additional energy to stay aloft with a heavy load.

  • A new study shows that the drones could be an effective mode of transport for short destinations with few drops whereas trucks are more beneficial for longer distances with frequent stops with respect to carbon dioxide emissions.

  • Package delivery with drones can reduce Carbon dioxide emission if they don’t have to fly very far or have few recipients and lighter package load as compared to truck deliveries but trucks can be more climate-friendly if the mentioned scenarios are opposite.

    Dear Author,

    Please comment….

    thanks,

  • Drones outweigh trucks when the delivery package is small, light weight, with less stops and closer destinations and reduce harmful gas emissions but trucks serve better when the package is heavy and need to be delivered far from the factory due to less energy consumption.

  • A new research about heart disease conducted among more than 23,000 Greek adults has found that a person taking siesta regularly are less prone to heart disease; however some people do not seem to be convinced with this theory.

    Although the rate of carbon emission is less with the package delivery via drones , they are not suitable for the long distance and large number of recipients in comparison to trucks which can carry variety of goods to wide range.

  • Findings of a study of Greek adults have suggested that people who took regular midday naps were less likely to succumb to heart diseases, with a few experts arguing a possibility that napping may help with the stress and biological rhythm of daily living and though this has opened up a space for further research, many of them have produced mixed results.

    A new study has suggested that in case of deliveries with lower travel distance and load, drones have proven advantageous over trucks since they reduce carbon dioxide emissions which however means that for farther destinations and heavy load, trucks will be a climate friendly alternative since drones will need additional energy for the same delivery thereby eroding carbon benefits.

    Author please review. Thanks a lot.

  • Please review and comment.

    The people have very few health diseases who frequently took a siesta, which help us to fight against coronary mortality,relieve from the stress and will have more health benefits which was the part of our biological system.

  • A study done by the transportation engineers of The University of Washington has revealed that for the short distances with less recipients in the way, drones are a better alternative of trucks in the terms of carbon emission but it can only be advantageous if the package is light weight.

  • A study of 23000 Greek adults has revealed that the chances of heart disease, which is the number one reason of death in America by killing 65000 Americans each year, can be be reduced by 30% only if a person follows the biological clock particularly by having a nap in the midday despite the study needs further research.

  • Engineers found that using drones for delivering small packages can reduce carbon dioxide emission compared to trucks, which can deliver without any stops can be more environment friendly

  • Researchers have known long time ago, that peole who take regular naps is less likely to die because of heart disease, but some previous studies suggest a different results;
    however, a new research study suggest that it could be true since it was able account factors such as physical activity, diet, and other illnesses.

  • A new study finds that drones could be helpful in reducing carbon dioxide emissions, by delivering smaller packages to shorter distance, however trucks become environment friendly alternative and can be used as multipurpose vehicle to carry large and heavy objects to longer distance.

    Author please give review
    thankyou

  • A study from the University of Washington transportation engineers says that deliveries can be routed by using drones which has lesser carbon dioxide emission and environment-friendly effects compared to delivery by trucks but is limited to small valued or light items in order to float in the air.

  • Unmanned aerial vehicle reduce the carbon dioxide emission in many circumstances, where the package is smaller and lighter, but carbon benefits erode as trucks becomes more climate friendly alternative when a delivery route have many stopes or far away from central warehouse.

  • As per some research, delivering packages using drones can reduce carbon dioxide footprints in comparison to deliveries done using truck, simply because drones need not to fly far from the destination, however, trucks can prove to be environmentally friendly in comparison where there is a need to carry more stuff, with multiple stops and to far off places.

    Pls review…

  • As per various studies and continues researches have proved that, about 30% less people are likely to die of heart disease than who do not take Siesta everyday.

    Pls review

  • Researchers said people who take the siesta, they have less chance of heart disease and it takes in some countries such as Greece, Italy and Spain to lower rate of heart disease.

  • Transportation engineers found that delivering packages with drones decreases the carbon emission rather than using Trucks but Drones are suitable for transporting small light packages where as Trucks are suitable for heavy and sensitive packages like home appliances, furniture etc.

  • According to a study, many deaths are occurring due to heart diseases and taking Siesta or a Nap is one of the good solution to prevent it as per many researches conducted across the world and it is proved that people taking Nap after lunch have low risk of getting heart diseases.

  • New study has found out that people who regularly took a midday siesta were 30 percent less likely to suffer and die with heart illness but further study are still needed to confirm it and other factors like dieting, physical activities etc. that might confuse the findings must first be accounted.

    Please review author. Thank you!

    • – Article missing – “A new study”
      – Mistake – “further study are still” instead it should be “further study is still”
      – Good but could be improved

  • Please Review****

    Drones are eco-friendly than trucks while delivering the light weight goods in short distances, in contrast prefer trucks to carry heavy goods for longer distance.

  • @ Author please feedback

    As per the study from University of Washington transportation engineers, making use of drone delivery help reducing carbon dioxide emissions for relatively small type of items on same route, whereas trucks are environment friendly to deliver heavy items for long distance with multiple stops.

    • article missing – “emissions for relatively”
      article missing – “items on same route”
      – You could improve on vocabulary

  • Package deliveries using drones are beneficial for the environment when the destination is near and if the package is small and light, while trucks offer more benefits by carrying everything on a single trip especially when the route has many stops or is farther from the warehouse.

  • Although, aerial vehicle reduce carbon dioxide emissions, and deliver small packages effectively, to become more climate-friendly like trucks these drones need to use additional energy to fly with a heavy load.

  • In the new study found that drons reduce carbon dioxide emission more than truck delivery but truck has helped to maintain environment by carrying everything from clothes to appliances to furniture in a single trip and it has no many stops compare with alternative delivery mode.

  • PLease review

    It has been found that siesta could reduce the chances of heart diseases and the daily stress of routine life, reasons could be biological but napping has proven to be very beneficial for healthy mind and body.

  • Dear Author,

    Please review and comment

    On the basis of studies done in different countries, some researchers, with the mixed reviews and confusing findings; believe that an afternoon nap has several benefits like preventing possibilities of heart disease, improving physical mechanism, curing coronary mortality and reducing stress and anxiety.

    As per the findings, drones are more environmental friendly compared to trucks in terms of delivering light packages in nearby areas and to few customers; as it emits less carbon dioxide, while trucks are more useful in delivering variety of products in a single trip having more stops and far routes.

  • Studies found that trucks are effective for longer distance transportation of heavier goods to multiple locations, whereas drones provide more nature friendly transportation of lighter goods to a shorter distance, by reducing the emission of carbon dioxide gases.

    • The study has showed that a little siesta, a little snooze or a short nap has always been beneficial in significantly decreasing the heart attacks and some other disease which has killed 650,000 Americans each year, making it the nation’s No. 1 cause of death.

  • Although, there were there studies including that were performed on the Greek adults confirms the fact that midday naps reduces the chances of death due to coronary disease, yet there are significant medical research need to be conducted to prove this fact.

    • A better one:

      Although, there were there studies conducted on various countries confirms the fact that midday naps reduces the chances of mortality due to coronary disease, by relieving stress, yet there are more medical research need to be conducted to prove this fact, by considering food habits, physical activities and other health issues of individuals.

      • In a paper published from University of Washington transportation, delivering packages with drones carry advantages over trucks;drones reduce carbon dioxide emissions in certain circumstances as compared to truck deliveries whereas trucks offers environmental benefits when a delivery route has many stops.

        • In the research conducted by University of Washington, reports that drones have advantages of less emission of carbon dioxide over trucks, when the delivery is small and many recipients are on same route, but results totally change, when the delivery has more weight, the more carbon dioxide emits from the drone.

  • Although more research is needed, some studies show that a regular midday siesta could reduce the probability of death caused by heart disease up to 30 percent, and napping also helps to deal with the stress and biological rhythm of daily living.

  • Researchers have agreed that delivering packages through drones can help to decline carbondioxide emissions in certain situation whereas delivering through a truck is also detrimental in a circumstances where the delivery route have many stops .

  • Several researchers have demystified the matter of taking little siesta which is very beneficial to deal with the stress of daily living; it is proved that those people who take siestas have lower chances of getting heart disease.

  • Hi Author,
    Please share your feedback on.

    In a research paper it is published that it’s better to use drones for delivery of small, light packages if destination is not far and delivery routes has few recipients because drones emits less carbon dioxide, however, if the package is heavy and delivery route has many spots and farther away from a central warehouse, truck would be the better option as drones requires additional energy to stay aloft with a heavy load.

    • – You have almost everything – good
      – Grammar is apt
      – Increase your vocabulary – many words are repeated
      – Sentence structure could be improved

  • 2. Drones – Please review

    Upcoming paper in the Transportation Research has compared Drones and Trucks in terms of reducing environmental damages caused by their harmful emissions; on one hand drones are beneficial in reducing carbon footprint for short distances and limited numbers of drops, whereas on the other hand trucks are still a better choice for long distance deliveries with higher number of stops.

    • – The wide range of vocabulary, good use of grammar, content covers almost everything.
      – But change the starting – it can be made more effective
      – Otherwise good

  • 1. Napping

    A recent study published in Internal Medicine into over 23,000 Greek subjects, has proved that taking an afternoon nap reduces chances of heart attacks by 30% in adults; however, more comprehensive research is required on this subject considering the aspect of dietary habits, physical fitness, and existing health issues.

  • Drones can help to reduce the carbon dioxide emission as compared to truck deliveries while delivering packages but they can carry light weight packages only as carbon benefits erode as the weight of package increases.

  • Hi Author,
    Please share your feedback on my summary:

    Siesta could reduce the chances of heart attack in humans and along with that napping also helps to deal with the stress of daily living.

  • The research carried out among Greek people showed that those who regularly took a siesta were not highly prone to heart disease; however, this study yet needs to research on the factors to validate the findings.

  • According to various research in medical science, taking a daily nap helps to reduce the stress which in turn minimises the risk of heart ailments which is a major cause of deaths in America, however new studies say that other factors like diet and physical activities should also be taken into consideration in order to establish this finding.

  • In order to reduce the carbon emission, drones proved to be more beneficial than trucks for carrying lighter good at a shorter distance, however if the distance is more, goods are heavy and number of recipients is higher then trucks definitely have a winning edge over drones.

  • Drones are more beneficial than heavy transport like trucks , when light weight packages need to be delivered on short distance therefore transportation engineer from the University of Washington developed study case to prove , how carbon dioxide emission can be reduced?

  • Drones are an environmentally friendly transportation option when the delivery location is not too far and the load is light, whereas trucks are more suitable when there are heavy loads to be delivered at distant locations with multiple deliveries on the same route.

  • According to latest research, an afternoon nap can reduce risk of heart attack by more than thirty percent, which is also supported by the facts that one of the biological cycle of our body dips in early afternoon demanding for rest and an afternoon siesta is tradition in many countries, yet more research is needed to establish this finding .

  • carbon dioxide emission by drones and trucks can be reduced depending on the distance traveled and the weight of goods being delivered.

  • To reduce carbon dioxide emissions, delivering light packages with drones compete especially well but don’t fly very far destinations, where trucks can deliver packages in single trip.

    Author please correct it, if I have done any mistakes.

  • According to the latest study, siesta can be helpful in reducing the chances of heart diseases by 30 percent by reducing the individual stress level, yet more research is needed to support the findings.

  • The carbon dioxide emission can be reduced by the use of drones for delivering light weight items over short distances however, for heavy items and for comparatively distant destinations truck will remain the only available option.

  • As per the studies, nap may help to deal with the stress and who takes midday siesta were more than 30 percent likely to be die of heart disease, but other findings shown mixed results.

  • A new study has revealed that drones emit less carbon dioxide and is suitable for a shorter trip, whereas trucks can still be considered the environment- friendly in the case of long distance trip with the heavy load.

  • I think the text about “Napping” is really long and does not resemble questions of PTE. Is it really a repeated question from PTE?

  • Siesta helps in fighting with diseases and lowers chances of having a heart disease by 30 percent, moreover, neglecting these naps could result in disruption of some biological processes, yet more research is needed to confirm the findings.

  • After comparing trucks and drones on the basis on carbon dioxide emissions, research reveals that drones are only effective in reducing carbon dioxide emissions if delivery packages are light, distances are shorter and recipients on route are less.

  • A new study which takes into account physical activity, diet and other illnesses, suggests that taking nap in the afternoon helps in dealing with stress and thus effective in reducing the probability of heart attacks; this study however needs more reasearch.

    Author plz review and provides your feedback

  • Researches show that drones are the best alternative for smaller goods delivery to short distances while emitting the less carbon dioxide than trucks, which are friendly to the environment in delivering large goods across long distances.

  • The biggest scientific survey has revealed that afternoon nap is the effective way to reduce the chances of heart diseases, but more studies are required to find the other ways how exactly it works.

  • Study has shown that drones are best companion for delivering small packages to a shorter distance with less carbon dioxide emissions, but still trucks are more beneficial for long distance, as they can carry lot of stuff in one go , without using any extra energy.
