1.) DVR usage is now at its highest level ever. 46% of homes in the U.S. have a digital recording device, well up from just over 30% one year ago. The recorders have help to boost TV watching levels, as people in our country watch 23 hours of TV per week, the most in the world. And even though we’re recording more and watching TV, we still aren’t watching everything. 41 percent of all content recorded in the U.S is never watched.
2.) Not only does that cup of coffee get you going in the morning, but according to a new study in the "British Medical Journal", coffee can save lives. Researchers in Australia studied long-haul truckers, and found that 43% of them drink coffee or use some other source of caffeine to stay awake and alert on long trips. And the truckers that use caffeine drive longer distances and sleep less than truckers who don't, but they’re still safer. Those drivers got into 63% fewer accidents than the ones that didn't. In fact, the only factor that had more of an impact on accident rates was driving history. Drivers who'd already had one crash were 81% more likely to have another one.
3.) If you want to sleep like a king, or a queen, perhaps you’ll invest in a Royal Bed. Savior Beds, a British mattress company, claims each mattress involves more than 700 hours of labor, mountains of Mongolian cashmere and nearly 1,600 miles of specially woven silk. Only about 60 of the beds will be made, and each one will take about 16 weeks from order to delivery. The company says the purchase is an investment and the cost is worth the high price for a great night’s sleep. The Royal Bed sells for $175.000 dollars.
