Eastleigh 3 Alfreton 1: Spitfires close on play-off positions
Not surprisingly the game lost all its shape and, with the clock ticking before 4.20pm, seven minutes of first-half stoppage time were announced. There was still time, though, for Eastleigh to create a decent late chance when Partington's goal-bound ...

The Essential Muaddhin
You can shut off the alarm on your phone or a wall clock, but you can't and shouldn't mute a real live person. Someone recently asked me “What do you feel when you hear the adhan?” I answered: “When I hear the adhan, I become nostalgic. I think of ...

Concerns raised over patient call bells at new MUHC site
A blue light will flash over the patient's doorway, but the hallways are L-shaped and these lights cannot be seen from the other side of the ward. Nor is it much better during a busy day — the alarms are about as loud as a low-volume alarm clock ...

Fitbit Surge activity tracker review
stairs climbed and heart rate. Is that all you're asking? Yeah pretty much. Although most trackers can also track calories burned, distance and sleep, I really only care about steps, stairs and heart rate. Having said that, it's how it track those ...

Even if you had the money, you couldn’t do it because as we all know, the best things…the most important…can’t be bought. Since I don’t have the money anyway, I’ve made a wish list of things that can’t be bought that I want my children to have. Deanna is a yarn-a-holic…if she has an extra dollar, she’s going to spend it on yarn. All she needs to create those lovely items is yarn. So the yarn fairy that I wish for her would bring her a multitude of skeins in all the colors of the rainbow and more. Yes, she definitely needs one of these. If you are well acquainted with Deanna, you also know that she loves to take long, luxurious showers. And if you are the one in the shower after her, you’re definitely taking a cold one. I have always called her my water baby because from the beginning, she has been obsessed with it. Why it takes so long to get that little body clean is beyond my understanding but the endless supply that I wish for her would ensure that she never... An alarm clock that never rings. And has no need to. So that Deanna can revel in one of her other great loves…sleeping late. Now she can sloth with the best of ‘em. So the alarm clock would never ring and Deanna could sleep to her heart’s content…until she had to pee anyway. Cause Deanna loves.
I wake up slowly, letting the dream linger for a bit longer, walking myself back through it, trying to decipher its meaning . This delicious dream-wake state sucks me in, and I wander leisurely through it, enjoying my no-alarm clock morning. And all I want to do is go back to sleep. Right now, the sound machine to my left and the earplugs in my ears are blocking out all noise. I momentarily wish I could leave the plugs in all day, and walk around with the soothing vibrations of “relax nature sounds” playing all around me. But I can’t. And many of those sounds are lovely. I don’t want to miss birds chirping and people singing and voices laughing. But as I pull the plugs out and switch off the machine, I hear none of that. All I hear is traffic. I have misophonia. Misophonia is a neurological condition in which your brain is essentially wired incorrectly. Certain everyday noises – chewing, coughing, tapping a foot, walking, whistling, cars passing, a fountain dripping, a floor board creaking – cause emotional reactions in the hearer that range from anxiety to fear to anger to sadness. Anxiety is my primary response, and a wide range of noises trigger me. For many people with misophonia, life can be isolating, challenging, and disheartening. And then I tried to go to sleep on our first night. And, for the first time, I heard the traffic. Traffic has never been a trigger-sound for me, so I didn’t consider this being an issue when we signed the lease.
