No more ‘students sleeping in class’ at several New Mexico high schools.  They are trying something different – ”Sleep Pods”  – where kids can take a 20 minute nap between classes. Statistics show a third of teens aren’t getting the recommended amount of sleep. The experts say let the kids nap and they’ll be able to return to class and focus.   https://goo.gl/CcnllR

 

Premium Parking? A parking space at a garage in Brooklyn (NYC) is on the market for $300,000 dollars.  The description of the parking spot reads:

“End your parking woes forever … No more looking for a space … No more parking tickets … No more shoveling out your car from a snowdrift.”

By the way, in another section of Brooklyn, you can purchase a whole condo for $300,000…and park on the street?           https://goo.gl/9cUa9d
