1  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / How Much Sleep You Need Depends on Your Age on: February 28, 2015, 08:57:49 AM


Getting a good night's rest is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself. Not only can lack of sleep make you gain weight, but it can also increase your risk of depression, anxiety, and other not-so fun diseases.

And although eight hours has been the golden standard for adults for years, the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) has officially revised some of its recommendations, which could mean some changes for your alarm clock, too.

An expert panel of 18 scientists, including six sleep specialists, reviewed over 300 current studies and research. Then, the team voted on how much sleep they believe is appropriate for each age stage. Some ranges were widened (infants, toddlers, preschoolers, teenagers), while another was narrowed (newborns), and two new categories were introduced: younger adults (ages 18 to 25) and older adults (ages 65+).

Curious where you fall on the list? Here are the NSF's latest recommendations:

Newborns (0-3 months): Sleep range narrowed to 14-17 hours each day (previously it was 12-18)

Infants (4-11 months): Sleep range widened two hours to 12-15 hours (previously it was 14-15)
 
Toddlers (1-2 years): Sleep range widened by one hour to 11-14 hours (previously it was 12-14)

Preschoolers (3-5): Sleep range widened by one hour to 10-13 hours (previously it was 11-13)

School age children (6-13): Sleep range widened by one hour to 9-11 hours (previously it was 10-11)

Teenagers (14-17): Sleep range widened by one hour to 8-10 hours (previously it was 8.5-9.5)
 
Younger adults (18-25): Sleep range is 7-9 hours (new age category)
 
Adults (26-64): Sleep range did not change and remains 7-9 hours

Older adults (65+): Sleep range is 7-8 hours (new age category)

3  Discussion / Sports Forum / LeBron James wants colleges to stop recruiting his 10-year-old son...LBJ Jr. on: February 27, 2015, 09:47:11 AM
LeBron James' son, LeBron James Jr.  is 10 years old and he's already getting offers from colleges. LeBron isn't too happy about that. From the Washington Post:


"He's already got some offers from colleges," James, who skipped college to turn pro, told reporters Tuesday. "It's pretty crazy. It should be a violation. You shouldn't be recruiting 10-year-old kids."

The wild thing is: he actually had to say that. SOME PEOPLE DON'T JUST KNOW THAT ALREADY.

And if you wanted to see LBJ Jr. in action:

With SCSU being the only public HBCU in South Carolina, seems to me the State should set an example for all other States to follow by supporting it to the MAX. Not only with funds but also with great leadership and support from every angle that would move it forward. Whomever the next President is will be very important in making this happen. He or She will need 100% support. Can't nickel and dime us every ten years and expect us to succeed.

Its time for one of the HBCU's in Ga offer full engineering degree's.


This is so true. I would like to see a lot more advance degree programs or big time money making degrees. I know we can attend other schools for advance degrees but in order for Albany State and our sister schools to be more attractive and competitive in todays world this would help a lot.
6  Discussion / Sports Forum / Falcons cut running back Steven Jackson on: February 26, 2015, 08:13:42 PM
FLOWERY BRANCH — The Falcons released veteran running back Steven Jackson today, the team confirmed.


Jackson, 6-foot-3, 229 pounds, formerly played with the St. Louis Rams. He voided his contract in order to become a free agent and signed a three-year deal worth $12 million with the Falcons on March 13, 2013. A total of $4 million of the contract was guaranteed.

The Falcons hoped that Jackson would help replace Michael “The Burner” Turner, who was released after spending five productive years with the team.

Jackson’s pass-catching ability was lauded by the Falcons, but a dropped touchdown pass in first game with the Falcons in New Orleans foreshadowed that his stay with the team would not be very productive.

He was beset with injuries in 2013 and 2014, playing 12 and 15 games respectively. He had 347 carries for 1,250 yards (3.6 yards per carry) and 12 touchdowns. He caught 53 passes for 339 yards and one touchdown.

Before joining the Falcons, Jackson has rushed for 10,135 yards and 56 touchdowns in the NFL since being taken in the first round (24th overall) of the 2004 draft. He also has caught 407 passes for 3,324 yards and eight touchdowns with the St. Louis Rams.

They try to kill our spirit by making us wait 15 D%m years for one badly needed building. They give us money and programs at a snail's pace. Then they make up bull Sh%t requirements knowing that we've been deprived all these years.They know if you build it they will come. If you give HBCU's good programs along with good financing they will become stronger. I'm not sure how old Holley Hall is. It has to be over 50 years old. It is totally unbelievable and unimaginable how they can have no sense of urgency about the need for this building.

Albany State gets building funds in 2016 budget


ALBANY, GA -- Albany State University will be receiving funding for a multi-purpose building according to a new budget bill passed by the House Appropriations Committee.

 ASU released the following information about the status of the bill along with their reaction:

“As previously stated, we, at Albany State University, have been working with the Chancellor of the University System, Office of the Governor and members of the local legislative delegation to secure funding for construction of a multi-purpose facility on our campus.

 Today, we are grateful to the House Appropriations Committee for including funding for this project in its version of the 2016 budget.

“We will continue working with members of the House and Senate as the budget process moves forward. We are also pleased that their support will, indeed, address the needs of our students and faculty at Albany State University, while creating a community asset for the City of Albany and the Southwest Georgia region.

“Our local legislative delegation -- along with the Chancellor and Governor -- has shown that they all continue to be champions for the education of all Georgians. We, at Albany State, are committed to this cause and will use this facility in our effort to create a more educated and prepared workforce for this region and the state of Georgia.”

The building is expected to help support English, modern languages, mass communications and fine arts departments.

9  Discussion / General Discussion Forum / Albany State University funding included in FY16 Budget on: February 25, 2015, 09:16:36 PM
ATLANTA — While the weather was frigid in Atlanta, things warmed up for Albany on Wednesday after the House Appropriations Committee included $19.8 million for a new multi-purpose facility at Albany State University and $1.7 million for Darton State College’s Student Services Center in the FY16 state budget.

The proposed $21.7 billion FY16 budget will be voted on by the full house later today. If approved, it will then be sent to the Senate. Area legislators are optimistic of passage. This is the first time funding for the new arts center has advanced this far in the past decade.

The threat of severe weather in north Georgia added urgency to the committee pushing forward its version of the budget and shut the general assembly down at noon.

“This is a great morning and I feel great for southwest Georgia,” Gerald Greene, R-Cuthbert, vice chair of the appropriations committee said. “The funding for Albany State and Darton were the last items added to the budget. It’s really a blessing for our region.”

The funding was originally in University of Georgia Chancellor Hank Huckaby’s FY16 budget recommendation to Gov. Nathan Deal, but was removed before being sent to a House Committee. Greene credits Sen. Freddie Powell Sims, D-Dawson, with getting it back into the budget.

“Freddie was instrumental in getting the funding back and I am confident she will be able to move it through the Senate,” Greene said. “The ASU funding really came down to either we play the game or pull the plug on it. The Governor really stepped up for us, but he also saw we were not going to give up.”

For her part, Powell Sims said “I always hold my breath until midnight on Day 40. But the entire delegation has been working quietly to get this done. I am very appreciative that the money is now in the budget. Credit really goes to Dr. Huckaby, (ASU Interim President) Art Dunning, (appropriations Chair) Terry England and (USG Sr. Vice Chancellor, External Affairs) Tom Daniel. Even now, I don’t know who all to thank.”

Powell Sims bucked her caucus as the only Democratic co-sponsor of SB 133, which is the Governor’s proposed creation of “Opportunity School Districts.” Senate Democrats had countered SB 124, which they called “Community School Districts.”

When asked if her support of the governor’s bill was a factor in getting ASU and Darton back into the budget, Powell Sims declined comment.

Regardless of how funding found its was back into the budget, Dunning was pleased with the move.

“As previously stated, we at Albany State University have been working with the Chancellor of the University System, Office of the Governor and members of the local legislative delegation to secure funding for construction of a multi-purpose facility on our campus. Today, we are grateful to the House Appropriations Committee for including funding for this project in its version of the 2016 budget,” Dunning said in a written statement. “We will continue working with members of the House and Senate as the budget process moves forward. We are also pleased that their support will, indeed, address the needs of our students and faculty at Albany State University, while creating a community asset for the City of Albany and the Southwest Georgia region.

“Our local legislative delegation — along with the chancellor and governor — has shown that they all continue to be champions for the education of all Georgians. We at Albany State are committed to this cause and will use this facility in our effort to create a more educated and prepared workforce for this region and the state of Georgia.”

Darton Interim President Paul Jones was also grateful for the funding.

“We are not only thankful to the House Appropriations Committee for considering our request, but also pleased that the Darton State College capital project request has been approved by the committee,” Jones said. “As this project moves through the budget process, we are hopeful that the Student Enrollment Center will become a reality. This one-stop-shop service will provide better access to services to our students.”

12  Discussion / Sports Forum / Five Atlanta Falcons who could be on the chopping block on: February 06, 2015, 10:42:45 PM
http://www.thefalcoholic.com/2015/2/6/7978609/5-falcons-free-agents-who-could-be-on-the-chopping-block


All five players played a significant amount of snaps in 2014. Despite being under contract going into 2015, they could be released within the next few weeks.
   

   
The long-awaited offseason is finally upon us. After a month of digesting that the Falcons would finally be under a new regime, the time is now for action. Even though free agency isn’t quite here yet, there are roster decisions that should be made within the next few weeks. The Falcons have several free agents amongst their defensive line and secondary, and those personnel decisions will be debated about over the course of the next month.

This particular list consists of players that are contracted to play for the Falcons in 2015. Due to poor play, age, or a hefty salary, they shouldn’t be assured of a roster spot without due consideration. These players range from ultimate fan favorites to usual punch lines for the team's 2014 misfortunes. Here are the five players to monitor throughout this offseason.

15  Discussion / Sports Forum / Re: Seahawks OC blames former Fort Valley Star on: February 04, 2015, 06:12:11 PM
 No way did he throw that ball where Lockette had the best chance of catching it. He should have took into consideration where the DB was playing. Throw the ball where YOUR player is the only one who has a chance to catch it. Tom Brady would have made a better throw.  But Noooooo they were so intent on NOT having Lynch get in front of a camera again(tired of the negative interview publicity) and NOT wanting him to be the Super Bowl MVP because of a new contract coming up and they would have to pay more (because he would have another good reason for more money) Pete Carroll F''cked their Super Bowl win up.... nod
