Why going home from work on time is good for you – and your employer | News | The Guardian
There is a lot of evidence that the number of hours worked does not equate to how much you are getting done. With the OECD countries above, there is a statistically significant negative relationship between the average hours worked and the amount of money made per hour worked. In other words, the countries with longer working hours tend to have less economically productive workers. In Japan, several firms including the operators of clothing retailer Uniqlo are moving to cut the number of hours employees work. So don’t feel bad about clocking off on time – you might actually get more done.

Students 'cannot multi-task with mobiles and study' - BBC News
Researchers found that students sending and receiving messages while studying scored lower test results and were less effective at tasks such as note taking. The study examined how a generation of "voracious texters" might be affected by so many online distractions. It found that when students did not use mobiles, they were better at being able to recall information. [...] The study, Mobile Phones in the Classroom: Examining the Effects of Texting, Twitter, and Message Content on Student Learning, carried out a series of tests with 145 undergraduates. [...] "It is a common occurrence to observe students who are physically present, yet mentally preoccupied by non-course-related material on their mobile devices. "As mobile devices have deeply saturated the college student population, this problem will likely continue to pose a significant obstacle," says the study, by Jeffrey Kuznekoff, Stevie Munz and Scott Titsworth. // life hack = focus 100% without distractions, opp for procrasti

healthcare reform gone awry wrong as each case has standards, and if the patient is non-standard, the patient loses out (dies, complications) and hospitals ration care to minimize losses on the non-standard care.

Fuel economy: The Difference Engine: Four bangs for the buck | The Economist
Europeans snigger at how little it costs even Californians to fill the tank. But people in the United States pay through the nose for many other things in life (health, education, property taxes, wireless services, etc) that foreigners get for far less or even free. ... 

all previous recessions, petrol consumption has been a leading indicator of recovery, bouncing back sharply as people started using their vehicles more to shop, to dine out, to seek the curious and the entertaining, and, above all, to take vacations. Despite the American economy’s belated and still timid recovery—seen in increasing sales of cars, clothing, hospitality, entertainment, and consumer goods generally (though still not housing)—the amount of petrol being consumed across the country has tumbled to 2001 levels, and shows every sign of falling further.  

Reason; BC Americans buying frugal - more fuel efficient cars now. $4-a-gallon gas, Americans want cars that do 40mpg or more.

Green Inc. Column - Governments Can Promote Energy Efficiency -
Long-term savings from actions as simple as sealing leaky ducts or buying a more efficient refrigerator have always been there for the taking. But persuading homeowners or businesses to take such steps and — especially — persuading governments to enact the policies that will help them to do so has for the most part been challenging. Often, it has proved easiest to do nothing.
