  Title (up) Changing the waveform of circadian rhythms: considerations for shift-work Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Frontiers in Neurology Abbreviated Journal Front Neurol  
  Volume 3 Issue Pages 72  
  Keywords Editorial; dysrhythmia; night shift; shift-work; split schedules; waveform  
  Abstract Circadian disruption in shift-work is common and has deleterious effects on health and performance. Current efforts to mitigate these harms reasonably focus on the phase of the circadian pacemaker, which unfortunately in humans, shifts slowly and often incompletely. Temporal reorganization of rhythmic waveform (i.e., the shape of its 24 h oscillation), rather than phase, however, may better match performance demands of shift-workers and can be quickly and feasibly implemented in animals. In fact, a bifurcated pacemaker waveform may permit stable entrainment of a bimodal sleep/wake rhythm promoting alertness in both night and daylight hours. Although bifurcation has yet to be formally assessed in humans, evidence of conserved properties of circadian organization and plasticity predict its occurrence: humans respond to conventional manipulations of waveform (e.g., photoperiodism); behaviorally, the sleep/wake rhythm is adaptable; and finally, the human circadian system likely derives from the same multiple cellular oscillators that permit waveform flexibility in the rodent pacemaker. In short, investigation into untried manipulations of waveform in humans to facilitate adjustment to challenging schedules is justified.

  Title (up) Dark skies in the UK Type Journal Article
  Year 2012 Publication Astronomy & Geophysics Abbreviated Journal  
  Volume 53 Issue 3 Pages 3.25-3.25  
  Keywords Editorial  
  Abstract The United Kingdom is a highly and densely populated country (∼62 million people) with a high level of light pollution. It is not easy to find places in the UK where you can still see the Milky Way — indeed the best that is often on offer is the main defining stars of the major constellations, the brighter planets and the Moon. Even the Moon is hardly noticeable from central London. But there are still dark places in the UK. The best area to find them is in the remote northwest of Scotland — but this region is not noted for its fine weather and neither is it easy to get to. However, there are places closer to centres of population that offer satisfactorily dark skies where the Milky Way and a few nebulosities are visible with the naked eye. Sites of this sort of quality are still to be found in the National Parks with excellent access to major centres of population.
