According to the American Medical Association, LEDs contain a lot of blue light, which has a negative impact on human health (and the health of birds, sea turtles, and insects). The association says that Led Public lighting(CLASSIC) has a five-fold greater impact on circadian rhythm sleep rhythms than the Replacement lamp.

Everyone knows that they need to stop staring at tablets and mobile phones about an hour before going to bed (Blu-ray suppresses nighttime melatonin production), and brands such as Apple and Samsung can gradually turn the light from the LED screen into warmth, on the device. Harmful tones.

The use of these specific LED public lighting is actually just to save money, often ignoring smarter LED technology. By using a phosphor coating, the blue light generated inside the LED turns white, which absorbs some of the light energy and converts it into warmer yellow light. It is a mixture of yellow and blue that produces light, which we think is white. “The conversion process is not 100% efficient, so cooler lamps convert less blue light and are more efficient than warm yellow lights.

The amount of blue light we are exposed to is becoming more and more controllable, so it's easy to achieve a balance between efficient lighting and pleasing light, and the harm is less, it's just the authorities' problem that using them will bring real cost benefits.

COLUMBIA, S. Scarpe Scontate Online .C. -- South Carolina coach Will Muschamp had planned to be on a recruiting trip after his teams game with Georgia.Instead, disgusted by another demoralizing loss for the Gamecocks (2-4, 1-4 Southeastern Conference), Muschamp said hell stick around campus and continue looking for ways to improve the players hes got rather than focus on those recruits he hopes to sign.We need to stay here and we need to evaluate what were doing, Muschamp said.So far, what theyre doing is not good.The Gamecocks struggled on offense and defense in their 28-14 loss to the Bulldogs this past Sunday.South Carolina, last in SEC rushing and in stopping the rush, were exposed both ways against Georgia. The Bulldogs piled up a season-high 326 yards rushing and held the Gamecocks to 30 yards on 26 carries.Now, no ones position is secure.All starting spots are open during the teams bye week, Muschamp declared. The Gamecocks next game is at home against Massachusetts on Oct. 22.Starting left tackle Mason Zandi said the team went through its normal, start-the-week routine of reviewing film and holding a correct-mistakes-practice Tuesday after having Monday off.The players are prepared for anything.Changes could be dramatic or could be just fine tuning, you never know, Zandi said. Thats how were going to go about our business and thats what were going to do.South Carolina figured to struggle this season . A year ago this week ex-coach Steve Spurrier walked away from the team and the Gamecocks entered the year with few difference makers on offense and having to adjust to Muschamps hard-driven style.But South Carolinas defense has held opponents to 20.2 points a game, giving the Gamecocks a chance to be competitive in games with more high-powered opponents like Texas A&M and Mississippi State.South Carolinas offense, though, has been a dumpster fire much of the year. The offensive line has not opened holes for the Gamecocks young runners and the Gamecocks two quarterbacks -- senior Perry Orth and freshman Brandon McIlwain -- have contrasting, one-dimensional styles.Orth is a passer who threw for 288 yards Sunday against Georgia, yet struggles to run in the read-option offense. McIlwain, who started three games this season, is a stronger runner who has struggled to complete passes.I dont think anyone questions the want to, Muschamp said. Were just not getting the execution and its very disappointing for them to not get the results.Orth said Muschamps attempting to fire up players who may be worn down by losing.If he believes that all positions are open, youve got to attack every day like youre not going to play, said Orth, a one-time walk-on who has started 11 games the past two seasons.The Gamecocks may have few moves to make on offense. Injured young players in tailback Rico Dowdle and receivers Bryan Edwards and Deebo Samuel were all back on the field this week.Dowdle had 30 yards rushing on seven carries against Georgia. Edwards and Samuel combined for seven catches and 125 yards while Samuel scored on a 9-yard jet sweep.Theres been loud calls during the fan base to use another freshman at quarterback, highly regarded Jake Bentley. However, Muschamp has wanted to redshirt Bentley, who had scholarship offers from Alabama, LSU and Miami among others.Were improving, receiver Terry Googer said. People dont always see it, but we are.Improvement may not be that evident going forward, either.The second half of the season features a number of land mines where the Gamecocks will be big underdogs, like a home game against No. 9 Tennessee (Oct. 29) and road contests with No. 18 Florida (Nov. 12) and No. 3 Clemson (Nov. 26) to close the season.Everyone wants to continue to fight, continue to raise the bar, continue to push our limits, Zandi said. Thats what Ive seen and I love it.---AP College Football website: www.collegefootball.ap.org Scarpe Nike Scontate . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web.

Evergreen Australia skipper Cameron Smith claims he feels fitter than ever and has no plans to call time on his glittering representative career just yet. Nolan Ryan Jersey .The 33-year-old will make his 49th appearance in the green and gold on Sunday against New Zealand in the Four Nations final - 10 behind Darren Lockyers record.With the Rugby League World Cup in Australia just 11 months away, theres a real possibility Cooper Cronk, Matt Scott, Greg Inglis, wholl all be over 30 when the tournament kicks off, could follow Johnathan Thurston into representative retirement.Smith admits hes unlikely to play again in England after Sundays Four Nations decider against New Zealand at Anfield, but is open-minded about the possibility of playing on after next years showpiece and eclipsing Lockyers milestone.I think Ill just carry on playing, Smith said.I havent really looked to the future and put an end date on my representative career. Its a huge year next year, having a World Cup on home soil.I want to give myself every opportunity to be involved in that and after that tournaments finished theres a whole off season to think about continuing on the following year.Im still contracted to the Storm in 2018. Ill probably think about that after next year.I am sort of doing the opposite to other players, I am as fit and as strong as I have ever been.Probably because I look after myself a bit better now. I eat a fair bit less junk food.Physically I feel great and mentally I am enjoying the game as much as at any other time in my career.Despite being on his fourth Kangaroos tour of the UK, Smith said he feels as pumped as he did ahead of his first in 2009 when he scored a late try to earn a 20-all draw with New Zealand in the opening match - the only match on English soil hes not tasted victory in.Im still excited to get a jersey and have my name read out at the start of each week when Mal names the team, he said.Its a bit more difficult now because Ive got three young kids and my wife at home and its hard to leave those guys for six weeks.I love spending time with my family.But as far as playing and being around the team and playing in great stadiums and having victories, its still as enjoyable as when I debuted back in 2006. Custom Los Angeles Angels Jerseys . The 29-year-old from Port Colborne, Ont., has nothing but good things to say about former U.S. marine Liz (Girlrilla) Carmouche ahead of their co-main event Wednesday on the UFCs "Fight for the Troops" televised card in Fort Campbell, Ky. J. C. Ramirez Jersey . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. http://www.baseballangelslockroom.com/rod-carew-angels-jersey/ . Down by seven with 90 seconds left in regulation, thats where they looked comfortable. Minnesota coach Cheryl Reeve was livid in her postgame news conference.After congratulating Los Angeles for winning the WNBA championship with a 77-76 victory over the Lynx on Thursday night in a decisive Game 5, Reeve complained about the officiating.Its really unfortunate that players continually put themselves out there, playing and competing at a really high level. Whether it was the 8-second call in LA or the game today, its not fair to the players, Reeve said. Its not enough to apologize or send out a memo that they got something wrong. These players are so invested and something must be done about the officiating in this league. Its not fair to these great players we have.Reeves comments came after the officials didnt review a shot by Nneka Ogwumike with 1:14 left in the game that appeared on replays to have come after the shot clock had expired. The officials never reviewed the play, which gave Los Angeles a 73-71 lead.By WNBA rules, in the final 2 minutes of a game, plays are only reviewable immediately. Earlier in the game, timee can elapse off the clock and they can still be reviewed. CJ Wilson Jersey. It was reviewable at the time when she shot it, Reeve said. The referees at that point didnt think anything was wrong. They didnt understand it was the end of the clock. They didnt hear the shot clock. When they put the ball in play, the play is no longer reviewable.It wasnt the first missed call in this series. In Game 4, the Lynx benefited when the officials didnt call an 8-second violation late in that game. The WNBA admitted the next day that its officials had missed that call.Last season, in the Western Conference finals, the Lynx were aided by a foul with 1.5 seconds left in a tie game against Phoenix. The league said that foul should not have been called.Its unfortunate were having this discussion, Reeve said. A number of people contacted us saying this shot was no good. Maybe they still win. I dont want to take anything away from LA. ' ' '

Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday. NEW YORK -- Major League Baseball and the New York Yankees turned down requests Saturday to meet with Alex Rodriguezs camp and the union about the embattled stars expected drug penalty, two people familiar with the talks told The Associated Press. The overtures were made two days before MLB was poised to hand Rodriguez a lengthy suspension for his part in the Biogenesis case. The two people spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because no public statements were authorized. Rodriguez, meanwhile, was in Trenton, N.J., playing what could be his last game in a while. He started a double play, then drew a walk in the first inning while on a minor league rehabilitation assignment with the Double-A Thunder. He was scheduled to be off Sunday. The All-Star third baseman said Friday night the Yankees tentative plan was for him to join them in Chicago for Monday nights game against the White Sox. Before Rodriguez took the field, his side reached out to the Yankees and union head Michael Weiner contacted MLB Executive Vice-President Rob Manfred. The Yankees and MLB said they had no interest in such talks. There was always the chance, however, that further negotiations could take place at the last minute. The New York Post, Daily News and New York Times reported the discussions earlier Saturday. There hasnt been any definite word on the severity of Rodriguezs looming penalty, with speculation ranging from a lifetime ban to a suspension through the 2014 season. Also possible, according to those familiar with the talks, was a suspension lasting until Aug. 31, 2014, the day before all teams are permitted to expand their rosters from 25 players to 40. The 38-year-old Roodriguez hasnt played in the majors this season. Yeezy Boost 350 Saldi. The three-time American League MVP is recovering from hip surgery and a strained quadriceps. A day after Rodriguez homered for Trenton, Thunder manager Tony Franklin hedged on whether A-Rod was ready to rejoin the majors. "Thats not for me to say," Franklin said. "His swing is getting better. Hes running better. Hes doing the baseball things OK right now. But thats a different game up there." A sellout crowd was expected and a few minutes before the national anthem, A-Rod chatted up fans near the dugout and fist-pumped a kid, then walked off to have a catch. Rodriguez caught a knuckling line drive by Readings first batter and later fielded a grounder and began an inning-ending double play. Batting second, Rodriguez walked to the plate to Jay-Zs "On To The Next One" and received a mixture of cheers and boos in the first. He fouled off a 2-2 pitch before drawing a walk. Rodriguez slowly went first to third on a double off the right-field wall and was stranded. He also walked the next time he came up while his girlfriend, former pro wrestler Torrie Wilson, held up her cellphone to video the action from a second-row seat behind the plate. In the top of the second, Rodriguez ranged to his right to field a grounder and threw high and wide to second. It was ruled an infield hit, though he probably wouldve made the play a few years ago. The next inning, Rodriguez fielded a slow bouncer down the line and made a strong throw to first to get the out. He heard loud cheers as he jogged slowly to the dugout, looking around and seemingly taking in the crowds appreciation. ' ' '

In Week 10, Seattle Seahawks rookie running back C. Cheap Air Max 270 Free Shipping .J. Prosise produced 153 total yards on 24 touches in a road win over the New England Patriots. It was Prosises first heavy workload of the season, and we saw the unique versatility to his game. The Notre Dame product finished as the leading receiver for the Seahawks (seven receptions, 87 yards) and he consistently won matchups versus the Patriots man-coverage schemes.Today, lets break down how Seattle created opportunities for Prosise and discuss his fantasy value moving forward. With Thomas Rawls expected to return to the field, and Prosises volume possibly declining, where does the rookie fit in the lineup for owners with some tough upcoming matchups? Air Max 270 Cheap Online . Miller finished in two minutes, 6.09 seconds, one day before the first medal race on the Alpine schedule. The 36-year-old American also turned in the top time in Thursdays opening training session. Cheap Air Max 270 China . Fellow centre Pavel Datsyuk remains out because of a concussion. Zetterberg has 11 goals and 19 assists for a team-high 30 points, and Datsyuk has a team-high 12 goals and 11 assists. http://www.discountairmax270.com/ . On Saturday night, the normally free throw-challenged centre did just that. Howard scored 18 of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, including 13 of 19 free throws in a 2 1/2-minute stretch, and the Houston Rockets beat the Denver Nuggets 122-111. ORLANDO -- John Brown came into the final day at Orlando Summer League having not played a minute. But that didnt stop the 24-year-old from making one of the biggest impressions of any player on the floor.A three-time All-Big South selection from High Point University playing for the Charlotte Hornets summer squad in Orlando, Brown was, like so many other young players at the Amway Center this week, trying to find a way to stick in the NBA.The problem for Brown? He wasnt allowed to let his play do much of the talking. So he let his mouth do the talking instead. The affable swingmans running commentary throughout games became a source of entertainment. Its not just that Brown seems to have fun breaking things down and supporting his teammates, its the delivery of his often funny messages that leaves both teammates and onlookers laughing in his wake. Browns distinctive voice -- in the mold of a Flavor Flav type of hype-man who comes out to rev up crowds before a concert -- became one of the most memorable parts of the week.Ive been trying to tell my family about it, Hornets big man Mike Tobey said. Its just like when you hear him ... I dont know. Its something about -- you just automatically smile. I dont know how to explain it.Happiness seems to be a common theme from people who have crossed Browns path. In Mondays win over the Oklahoma City Thunder, Brown had those around him cracking up with his special variety of comments. After a questionable block/charge call went against the Hornets, Brown couldnt help himself. Is that your nephew? he asked the official. When the Thunder threw down a one-handed alley-oop, Brown was not impressed. Who cares? he huffed. Browns dedication to his team, and his communication craft, is impressive.Its also constant.Oh, I hear him, Hornets Summer League coach Patrick Ewing said. Ive been hearing him since when he came for a draft workout. He does not stop. He does not stop. Hes always telling me hes ready whenever I give him an opportunity, so I hear him.But the beauty of Browns dedication, and at the heart of his quirkiness, is a team-first attitude that is respected by coaches and teammates alike.This is me, he said. This is me, regardless if Im playing or not. You can ask the previous coaches at High Point the same way. Once my time comes it will be the same and I know theyll do the same thing for me.High Point coach Scott Cherry affirmed Browns message. Cherry said Brown has always been talkative, but he also noted that Brown was a basketball force during his time in school. After taking a redshirt season in 2011-12, Brown didnt leave the floor much during his four years playing for the Panthers. He averaged 19.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game as a senior.He wasnt [talking] like that during games with us because he was competing and he was a very high [level] competitor, Cherry said. He was ultra competitive. He wanted to win every drill, everything that he did. In games, he became almost a little bit different, [like] Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. Not that he didnt talk during games but he just went out and handled his business. He was out there to accomplish a task and he went out there -- he smiled every now and then during games -- but he was way more business-like when he was playing.Had Brown not broken his foot on Senior Night in February against Winthrop, his own circumstances might be a little different today. Because of the rehab required, the 6-foot-8, 210-pounder was only able to work out for a handful of teams and he was trying to find his rhythm coming back from the injury.He still managed to make an impression. Hornets personnel laugh about Browns pre-draft workout in Charlotte. After an airball or a mistake, Brown would drop to the floor and do pushups as penance.At first I was like, whats going on? said Tobey, who was at the workout. But then, like, as I got to know him more throughout this -- I love it. Hes doing pushups in timeouts and all this kind of stuff. Thats just him and you got to love him for it.As the first half in Mondays game was ending, Brown alternated between pumping up his teammates and yelling for more execution. After a particularly good play went the Hornets way, he mixed in a celebratory dance straight out of the Michael Jackson playbook.It just eases the tension, Brown said. I bet it gives the guys confidence knowing that someones cheering them on constantly. Im trying to talk as much as I can.Having watcched Brown grow during his time at High Point, Cherry understands the challenge his former star is currently facing. Discount Air Max 270. He knows how badly Brown wants to play, but he is confident that his communication skills will aid his development.It was hard for him at first, the first couple years, to be able to communicate properly with his teammates because he expected everybody to play at his level and be to his ability, Cherry said. I had to sit him down and explain to him that not everybody that is on his team is going to be at the level he is at every single day. He competes and plays at a whole nother level. His motor is non-stop and hes a very unique individual as far as his competitiveness, and I wish he could get out on the floor and you could see. Every possession he plays like its his last.And if hes not playing, hes still trying to help his teammates.I remember someone was at the foul line -- he was trying to distract him, Tobey said. [Browns] like, His shirts not tucked in! Its not regulation! Some of the things he says, its just like so funny. If I was shooting a free throw it would have messed me up. So Im happy hes on my team.Brown takes all of the praise from teammates and coaches in stride. But he wants to be known as a player, not as some kind of running side show on the bench.How does he stay so positive despite spending most of the week on the sideline?I dont think about it, Brown said in a whisper. I dont think about it [or] pout [saying], Coach put me in. I could be able to do it. Once my name gets called, all I know is I better be ready.Friday morning, in a half-empty gym in the Hornets last game of the week, Brown finally got his chance. He struggled to find his groove, going 1-for-6 from the field, pulling down two rebounds and turning the ball over twice in 12 minutes of play. After waiting so long for his chance, Brown clearly was disappointed with his performance.Like a woman giving birth to a child and telling it to walk to the store, Brown said when asked what it was like when Ewing finally called his name.His teammates, however, were there with encouraging words.Wheres JB at? Hornets Summer Leaguer Goodluck Okonoboh said as Charlotte came to the bench in the fourth quarter. Good hustle, bro.The unity Brown helped form on the bench throughout the week was something Ewing appreciated. After pointing out how much he enjoyed the positive attitude from his team, Ewing specifically called out Brown for his unique contributions.I thanked him for his effort, his energy, his effort in practice and his enthusiasm on the bench, Ewing said. Keeping the guys, either theyre not playing or when they come out of the game, making sure they stay in the game. I love that about him.When he got his opportunity to play, he played hard, played with a lot of energy, played with a lot of effort. Which is something that he needs to do.Brown might not recognize it, but he had a significant impact on his team despite a lack of box score results.He brings unbelievable energy every day, Tobey said. Literally thats how he is all the time. Its amazing. Ive never met anyone that has actually been so genuine as well. The energy he brings is phenomenal. Everyone loves him.Like so many other young players, Brown walked out of the Amway Center on Friday uncertain about his future. His dream is to make an NBA team, but if thats not in the cards right now, hell likely head to Europe.Hes raw, Ewing said. He needs to become a better shooter. Hes not a good enough shooter right now. His effort is there, the intensity is there, but all you can tell him to do is just keep working on his game. You cant say its time to give up because it never really is as long as you believe and you put in the work to get better at your craft, then anything is possible.Thats the belief that Brown is holding onto as he awaits the next step in his basketball life. No matter where he lands, Browns positive outlook should be welcome, just as it was this week in Orlando.?No matter what situation youre in, you cant let that change your attitude, Brown said. Hey, I didnt get in (the games) as much as I wanted to, but I had a good time, cheered the guys on. Guys respect me, they talk to me, told me thank you.No matter what, just keep your attitude the same way. Its easy to be negative. ' ' '

I dont think about it [or] pout [saying], Coach put me in. I could be able to do it. Once my name gets called, all I know is I better be ready.Friday morning, in a half-empty gym in the Hornets last game of the week, Brown finally got his chance. He struggled to find his groove, going 1-for-6 from the field, pulling down two rebounds and turning the ball over twice in 12 minutes of play. After waiting so long for his chance, Brown clearly was disappointed with his performance.Like a woman giving birth to a child and telling it to walk to the store, Brown said when asked what it was like when Ewing finally called his name.His teammates, however, were there with encouraging words.Wheres JB at? Hornets Summer Leaguer Goodluck Okonoboh said as Charlotte came to the bench in the fourth quarter. Good hustle, bro.The unity Brown helped form on the bench throughout the week was something Ewing appreciated. After pointing out how much he enjoyed the positive attitude from his team, Ewing specifically called out Brown for his unique contributions.I thanked him for his effort, his energy, his effort in practice and his enthusiasm on the bench, Ewing said. Keeping the guys, either theyre not playing or when they come out of the game, making sure they stay in the game. I love that about him.When he got his opportunity to play, he played hard, played with a lot of energy, played with a lot of effort. Which is something that he needs to do.Brown might not recognize it, but he had a significant impact on his team despite a lack of box score results.He brings unbelievable energy every day, Tobey said. Literally thats how he is all the time. Its amazing. Ive never met anyone that has actually been so genuine as well. The energy he brings is phenomenal. Everyone loves him.Like so many other young players, Brown walked out of the Amway Center on Friday uncertain about his future. His dream is to make an NBA team, but if thats not in the cards right now, hell likely head to Europe.Hes raw, Ewing said. He needs to become a better shooter. Hes not a good enough shooter right now. His effort is there, the intensity is there, but all you can tell him to do is just keep working on his game. You cant say its time to give up because it never really is as long as you believe and you put in the work to get better at your craft, then anything is possible.Thats the belief that Brown is holding onto as he awaits the next step in his basketball life. No matter where he lands, Browns positive outlook should be welcome, just as it was this week in Orlando.?No matter what situation youre in, you cant let that change your attitude, Brown said. Hey, I didnt get in (the games) as much as I wanted to, but I had a good time, cheered the guys on. Guys respect me, they talk to me, told me thank you.No matter what, just keep your attitude the same way. Its easy to be negative. ' ' '

Maria Sharapova will face an anti-doping panel in London on Wednesday knowing she will not benefit from recent confusion surrounding the drug she tested positive for in January. Cheap Tom Brady College Jersey . The 29-year-old Russian stunned the tennis world in March when she announced she had failed a test for meldonium on January 26, the day she lost an Australian Open quarter-final to Serena Williams.The Latvian-made heart disease medication had only been added to the World Anti-Doping Agencys banned list on January 1 but had been on a watch list for over a year and all national anti-doping agencies were told in October that it would be banned. With use of meldonium widespread across Eastern Europe, Sharapovas case was the most high-profile in an avalanche of positives in the first four months of the year. As of early May, WADA said there had been 288 positive samples. Sharapova must face an anti-doping panel in London But in April, the agency was forced to make an embarrassingly climbdown when it admitted there was a lack of scientific certainty on how long it takes for the drug to be completely excreted.Early suggestions that it should be out of an athletes system within days gave way to fears it could be present in long-term users, in trace amounts, for weeks, if not months.This led WADA to issue new guidance, directing that samples collected before March 1 below a certain concentration of meldonium could be discarded, as the athlete might be able to prove they had stopped taking it in 2015.Last month, Belarusian doubles specialist Sergey Betov, who also tested positive at the Australian Open, was cleared by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) on these grounds. Maria reveals failed drug test Maria Sharapova has announced she failed a drugs test during the Australian Open in January. This prompted speculation that five-time grand slam winner Sharapova could escape without punishment but both she and her lawyer John Haggerty had already admitted she had been taking it, on her doctors advice, throughout January.This was underlined by Russian sports minister Vitaly Mutko last month, when he told the Russian news agency TASS that the concentration of meldonium in Sharapovas system was above the provisional limit.Sharapova, instead, must try to convince an ITF panel that the laundry list of health reasons that Haggerty referred to in March should qualify her for a backdated therapeutic use exemption (TUE). Sharapova poses with her trophy after winning Wimbledon in 2004 Whether this will be enough to see the worlds highest-earning female athlete avoid any ban at all is highly debatable, as all athletes sign up to the principle of strict liability and TUEs should be arranged, and independently verified, in advance.The maximum punishment available is four years but most anti-doping experts think a more likely ban is between six to 12 months, which would start from the date of her provisional suspension on March 12.That would mean even a ban at the lenient end of that range would see Sharapova miss the remaining grand slams this season, including Wimbledon, as well as the Rio Olympics.
