Lecture Series:"Sleep Health"

Sleep disturbances were identified as one of a cluster of health risk factors over 25 years ago. While a lot of attention has focused on the other risks - obesity, cigarette smoking, alcohol, and inactivity - sleep has been "rediscovered" as a pillar of health relatively recently. We now have evidence that a number of sleep disorders lead to poor health outcomes, and even early mortality. But beyond specific disorders, we now have enough evidence to begin talking about "sleep health", what people can do to identify whether their sleep is good or poor, and what they can aim for to achieve better sleep health.
"Why are Iran's nuclear technology efforts of critical concern to Israel's security?"
|When:||Wednesday, March 18, 2015, 7:30pm|
|Where:||McConomy Auditorium, Cohon University Center|
|This question will be addressed first by discussing facts relative to uranium enrichment and heavy water reactor technology, atomic bomb design, and Israel's geography and population. Secondly, what will have to be speculation will be offered as to Iranian governance and objectives, and Israeli defenses against various modes of nuclear attacks. It is hoped that these remarks will aid the audience in forming a sound opinion on this crucial question.|
There are currently no luncheons planned.
