To Sleep, Or Not To Sleep
“Sleep is essential for life!” In this Movin’ Together feature, Bonnie Kendrick, who supervises the UPMC Susquehanna Sleep Center at the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hospital in Wellsboro, shares some of her tips and knowledge about the importance of healthy sleep habits. She explained that there’s actual science behind the idea of sleep clearing your head. When we sleep, cerebral spinal fluid is released that flushes things out and helps the brain clear and refresh. So, when facing a difficult decision or processing a tough day, it truly will help to “sleep on it”!
Electrofishing is a fascinating subject. Do you know what it is? Well, today on The Home Page Network Sara Vogt joins Biologist and area fisheries Manager of the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission, Robert Wunk to discover it’s importance.
Fisheries biologists use electrofishing to sample fish populations in bodies of freshwater as a means of making sure the fish population is healthy and in balance. The biologists catch fish by putting electric current into the water. This process temporarily stuns the fish at which point they will float to the surface. The fish are then placed into tubs and examined.
