Scientists say there may be 6 types of sleepers. Which type are you?

Scientists say there may be 6 types of sleepers. Which type are you? "Afternooners" are sleepy both in the morning and evening, and "nappers" are alert in the morning and evening but sleepy in the afternoon. There's also some evidence that "swifts" are alert from the moment they wake up until the moment they fall asleep, while "woodcocks" are sleepy all the time. Here's how to work out which one you are. Most people have a fair idea of whether they're a morning or evening person, judging by whether they prefer to get up early or sleep in and stay up later.

You’ve heard it repeatedly: You should get your annual flu shot. You can go to your local pharmacy, doctor’s office, or hospital to get the shot, but you should probably know that there are two different types of shots, each of which offers varying coverage.

One is the trivalent vaccine, and the other, the quadrivalent vaccine. The trivalent vaccine protects against three strains of the flu — an influenza A, or H1N1, virus; an influenza A, or H3N2, virus; and an influenza B virus. The quadrivalent vaccine, meanwhile, protects against four strains: all of the strains in the trivalent vaccine, plus an additional B virus strain.

So which one are you likely to get, and should you be opting for something different?

In general, you’re probably getting the quadrivalent vaccine, infectious disease expert Amesh A. Adalja, MD, senior scholar at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security, tells Yahoo Lifestyle. “Most places are going to be primarily stocking the quadrivalent,” he says. “You want to get this vaccine because it covers against more strains.”

However, there is one big exception: The CDC recommends that people who are 65 and older get what’s called a high-dose influenza vaccine — which is another name for a trivalent vaccine. “Because of the way it’s formulated, it only has three strains,” Adalja says, explaining that with only three strains in the formula, you can make the doses a bit higher than with four. “It’s kind of a tradeoff: You’re getting the benefit of a higher dose against some of the more dangerous strains. In a high dose, there’s only so much you can pack into a vaccine.”

For the record, the CDC’s Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices does not state a preference for the quadrivalent or the trivalent. Still, the quadrivalent makes sense for many people, Adalja says. “The CDC doesn’t want to confuse people more,” he says. “They just want people to get something, which is much better than nothing.”

If you know you want to get your flu shot and aren’t sure which type you’re getting, just ask. Your doctor or pharmacist should be able to tell you.

Artificial Blood Could Potentially Fit With All Blood Types .
Japanese scientists have been able to develop the early stages of an artificial blood that could mimic any blood type.Scientists from Japan may have found the answer, although that answer is still in its very early stages. That’s because they have managed to develop what’s called as “artificial blood,” which in theory, can fit any patient’s blood type. This means that blood transfusions no longer have to look for similar blood types since the artificial blood is essentially a one-size-fits-all type. Furthermore, it can also help fill the need of the current market for blood transfusions. According to the World Health Organization, 117.
