Science says sleeping in a cold room is better for your health

“We really view it as a luxury; we view people who like to sleep or get a lot of sleep as lazy, and that’s just not true,” said ABC News Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton. “We, in fact, can be referred to as a sleep-deprived society.” Sleep isn’t just good for your mood, it’s also the most important time for your brain to store memories and for your body to prepare for the next day. And doctors say poor sleep can seriously affect your health. County Living reports that according to an article written by Dr. Christopher Winter, Medical Director at Charlottesville Neurology & Sleep Medicine, our bedroom temperatures can make a big difference when it comes to getting a good night of sleep. Dr. Winter says our rooms should be 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit for the best sleep. If the temperature goes above 75 degrees or below 54 degrees, it can cause people to toss and turn all night. Good Morning America also consulted experts on how to get a good night’s rest. Here are those questions answered. The general recommendation for how much sleep an adult needs per night is seven to nine hours, according to the National Sleep Found...

New guidelines for featured-based product line engineering now available

Product line engineering (PLE) solution provider BigLever is launching a PLE body of knowledge for feature-based PLE. According to the company, feature-based PLE has proven to provide improvements in time to market, efficiency, product line scalability, and product quality. BigLever defines product line engineering as “the engineering of a product line using a shared set of engineering assets, a managed set of features and an automated means of production.” Charles Krueger, CEO of BigLever Software, explained that as technology becomes more advanced and organizations try to remain competitive, the nature of software development is getting more and more complex and diverse with more features and products — and there is no time or room for errors. Feature-based PLE aims to reduce that complexity by introducing a feature catalog and a bill of features that contains all the information about features and options for all products and solutions in a product line. These documents can then be used to help teams make changes and fixes across their entire product line instead of having to individually update each piece or version of software. “Feature-based PLE enables companies to establ...
