Interesting about sleepwalking....

We all probably have heard stories about sleepwalking, but what exactly is it and why is it occurring? Sleepwalking is also known as Somnambulism and is characterized by behavior performed during sleep such as standing, sitting up or walking while sleeping. Sleepwalkers typically have no recognition of the event and when they are encountered in the act, it is difficult to wake them up. This is because the sleepwalker usually remains in deep sleep throughout the sleepwalking event.

Sleepwalking is generally more common in children.  Based on statistic, about 70% of children sleepwalked and the majority of them get over it when by the age of 15. However, there is still small proportion of people (about 4%) who persisted throughout adult life.

Sleepwalking disorder is known to have a strong hereditary component where almost 50% of sleepwalkers have reported history of sleepwalking behavior in their family. It can also occur in people who are not normally a sleepwalker where the sleepwalking behavior is triggered by external factors such as drug, medication and alcohol. For instance, anti-anxiety, anti-psychotic or anti-seizure medication has been known to be able to induce sleepwalking in patients. Stress, fatigue and tiredness from both psychological and physiological sources are also factors that cause sleepwalking disorder.

Although treatment such as sedative and hypnotize has been used to treat the symptoms of sleepwalking, there is no definitive cure. However, there are ways to reduce it occurrences or it impacts. For instance, for adults who are sleepwalkers, healthy lifestyle practice and healthy diet could help to reduce sleepwalking behavior as it helps to reduce the stress levels and also reduce consumption to alcohol and drugs. Lock your room’s windows and doors before you sleep would be one of the best options to reduce the impacts of your sleepwalking action.

In the United States, National Fried Chicken Day is observed each year on July 6th.  On this day, fried chicken lovers across the country celebrate this American favorite at a nearby restaurant, home or an outdoor picnic.
Scottish immigrants brought their tradition of deep-frying chicken in fat to the southern United States.  After its introduction to the American South, fried chicken soon became a staple. Over time, seasonings and spices were added to enrich the flavor of the chicken.
Fried chicken is a dish that consists of chicken pieces which have been floured or battered then pan-fried, deep-fried or pressure-fried. The breading adds a crisp coating to the exterior of the chicken.
Traditionally the chicken is fried in lard.  However, corn oil, peanut oil, canola oil or vegetable oil are also frequently used.
