Sleeping in on weekends could save your life

According to the researchers, this means that people who were impaired from chronic sleep restriction were unaware of any impairment.

Torbjörn Åkerstedt, a clinical neuroscience professor at Sweden's Karolinska Institute and one of the authors of the paper, said the findings are similar with previous research into sleep duration and the connection to mortality. Scientists have found out that people under the age of 65 who sleep for five or less hours a day are at an increased risk of premature death compared to those who sleep six or seven hours per day. The American Academy of Sleep Medicine and Sleep Research Society recommends adults ages 18 to 60 sleep about seven hours per night.

The effect only applied to those under 65 as the mortality difference disappeared for people who were older.

North Korea committed to denuclearisation
Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was deposed and killed by NATO-backed militants after halting his nascent nuclear program. Earlier on Twitter, Trump had noted "very good news to receive the warm and productive statement from North Korea".

Results showed that people who get less that five hours sleep throughout the week, but enjoyed some extra shut-eye on the weekends, had no heightened mortality risk. "If you can function on what you get, you are likely getting the right amount of sleep". For over-65s, no link was found between the hours slept and the risk of death. But without making up for lost sleep during the week, those only getting five hours of fewer during the week did not live as long as people who consistently slept seven hours each night. They are the ones who can compensate with longer rest on the weekends, because there is not as much of a deficit.
