But a recent study suggests that social ties, such as relationships with friends and parents, may play a bigger role than biology in influencing teen sleep. Researchers analyzed information from nearly 1,000 adolescents, following them from age 12 to 15. The teens answered questions about all aspects of their lives, including their sleep habits, relationships with parents and friends, and involvement in school. Nurses also examined the teens each year of the study, to assess how quickly they were going through puberty. Read more…More about Health, Parenting, Family, Teens, and Science

Apple acquired two new patents on Tuesday — one that patents a “touch and hover” display, similar to the technology found in Samsung products like the Galaxy Note 2, and one that patents a heart rate monitor to read your EKG data. The hover display would let you interact with your Apple device without actually touching the screen. Just hold your finger or stylus over a desired app, and the app will open as though you had pressed down on the screen, according to Apple Insider. See also: Technology in 2014: What to Expect It could be tough for an iPhone or iPad to discern whether you want to open an app — or if you accidentally waved your finger above the screen.
