Night Shift subtitles English



The series followed the adventures of Nick Knight, a Toronto cop working the graveyard shift with his partner Donald Schanke. Unbeknownst to most of his colleagues, Nick is actually Nicholas, an 800-year-old vampire (his human surname was reference to his status as a literal knight in medieval France). Remorseful over centuries spent as a vampiric cold-hearted killer, Nicholas works as a cop and often ends up using his special abilities to bring criminals to justice. Whenever he works on his cases, Nicholas remembers similar situations from previous lifetimes and these appear as flashbacks in the episodes. Nicholas explains his need to work on the night shift by claiming to have a skin disorder, photodermatitis, which requires him to stay out of sunlight. Refusing to feed from humans, he survives by drinking bottled animal blood, something that most vampires find repulsive. The only human who knows his true nature is his friend Natalie Lambert, a city medical examiner who doesn't like Nicholas using his special powers as she believes it increases his need for blood.


Unfortunately, if a person experiences light much earlier than 5 a.m. internal time, then the body interprets this as a late sunset rather than an early sunrise. This will result in shifting the internal biological clock in the wrong (or later) direction. This undesired effect would exaggerate the misalignment between the internal clock and the new time zone, and result in more pronounced jet lag. In other words, let's say you take that overnight flight from Boston to Paris that arrives at 6 a.m. local time. When you arrive, your body feels like it is midnight. To adjust most quickly to the new time zone, you should avoid bright sunlight ideally for at least five hours and then seek light after 11 a.m. Generally speaking, the internal clock resets at a rate of about one hour (or time zone) per day. Some body systems and organs may take even longer to adjust to the change. Click on the interactive activity below to learn more about how shifts in your internal biological clock can produce issues with your ability to stay awake or fall asleep at appropriate times.


Some people who work exclusively at night or who work rotating shifts can experience shift work disorder, a chronic condition that is directly related to their work schedule. The two primary symptoms of shift work disorder are insomnia when a person is trying to sleep, and excessive sleepiness when a person needs to be awake and alert.


Insomnia is very common among individuals who sleep during the day. Since the circadian alerting system is typically at its strongest during the daytime, night shift workers find themselves struggling to sleep "on the wrong side of the clock." Just as undesirable is the fact that individuals who work at night will often experience bouts of extreme drowsiness while they are working. Indeed, about half of all night shift workers report falling asleep at work. When you consider that shift workers include large numbers of long-haul truck drivers, pilots, train operators, medical providers, and individuals responsible for maintaining our 24-hour infrastructure, shift work disorder is a serious public health issue.


Chronic sleep deprivation is one outcome of shift work disorder. Night shift workers, on average, sleep about one and one-half fewer hours per night than daytime workers. Lack of sleep clearly affects alertness, judgment, and performance. The increased rate of work-related accidents at night and motor vehicle accidents following a night shift are evidence that long-term shift work can be hazardous to health and well-being. Recent research suggests that chronic sleep loss may lead to an increased risk for obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.


If shifts must rotate, it is easier for workers to adjust to a schedule that rotates from day shift to evening shift to night shift than it is to adjust to a reverse rotation. If sleep or job alertness problems are persistent and severe, shift workers should consider visiting a sleep specialist for an evaluation of a possible underlying sleep disorder that may be complicating the effects of shift work.


Divided into six chapters, the film is framed by the murder of Mahatma Gandhi in 1948. This act of violence was so profound, its portent and poignancy remain undiminished 50 years later. As a child filmmaker Patwardhan was immersed in the non-violent Gandhian movement. Because of this he, in WAR AND PEACE, examines India's trajectory towards naked militarism with sorrow, although along the way the film captures joyful stories of courage and resistance. Amongst these chapters is a visit to the "enemy country" of Pakistan, where, contrary to expectations, Indian delegates are showered by affection, not only by their Pakistani counterparts in the peace movement, but by ordinary citizens who declare without caution that "hate is the creation of politicians." WAR AND PEACE examines not merely the militarization of India, but analyzes the human cost that is extracted from its citizens in the name of 'National Security.' From the plight of residents living near the nuclear test site, and the horrendous effects of uranium mining on local indigenous populations, it becomes clear that, contrary to a myth first created in the U.S., there is no such thing as the "peaceful Atom." Scientific research has been hijacked by the war machine, only a handful of practitioners remind us of its potential to fulfill the genuine needs of the people. Going beyond the story of South Asia, WAR AND PEACE follows the extraordinary visit of Japanese Atom Bomb survivors after the Indian and Pakistani nuclear tests. Their visit becomes the impetus for a re-examination of events that led to the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Were these bombs necessary? American historians who recently curated an exhibit about this issue for the Smithsonian Museum in Washington DC were amazed to find their voices suppressed. WAR AND PEACE slips seamlessly from its analysis of homemade jingoism to focus on how an aggressive United States has become a Foreign Relations role model. The unofficial U.S. doctrine of 'Might Makes Right' is only too well absorbed and emulated by aspiring Third World elites. As we enter the 21st century, enemies are being re-invented, economies are inextricably tied to the production and sale of weapons, and in the moral wastelands of the world, war has become perennial. Memories of Gandhi seem like a mirage that never was, created by our thirst for peace and our very distance from it. "The film itself is a tour de force, beautifully shot and often darkly funny and much more riveting than the dry subject matter might suggest." - Duncan Campbell, The Guardian "We should listen to our voices of dissent for our own sake and for that of our children and their children. WAR AND PEACE is that voice's most eloquent expression. Which is why it should be seen by everyone everywhere. In schools, in colleges, in factories, on television. Urgently and often." - The Times of India "Perhaps the most important film in this year's Berlin Film Festival." - Reuters __________________________________________________ 3.

The Iraqi National Museum Project ? Istvan At 16 Beaver St. 5th Floor This proposed installation at 16beavergroup is an attempt to organize an art show of the same title . The concept for the installation refers to the well-publicized fact that the Irqi National Museum was looted (disabled as an cultural institution) as a result of the war. The destruction of the museum is posited here as a metaphor for the war itself , which calls into question the aesthetics of the media's representation of the same war. The project refers to the state of the museum in the present , an empty space waiting to be reorganized. The I. N. M.P. appropriates the name of the museum to generate contemporary art in New York City . The installation will include: 1, A laptop wil be set up with the search term Iraqi National Museum in Google. Simultananeously the pages of the search result are projected in the main area. 2, In the main space will be a large open container with the title: Iraqi National Museum Project and a sign rading in English and Arabic: Any artifacts submitted to the I. N. M. P. will be accepted here, No Questions Asked! (the idea for the I.N.M. P. collection bin was suggested by David Robinson and was the first step in the development of this project) ::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::::: 4. Operation Marmalade At 16 Beaver St. 5th Floor Dear Operation How Now Wow I'd like to present Operation Marmalade, a cooking performance, in conjunction with your event April 26. A brief explanation is below Operation Marmalade : Relieving Cultural Indigestion Through Strategic Cuisine Marmalade is a collaboration of cultures. Arabs in the south of Spain grew Seville oranges for the medicinal properties of their skin. Spain shipped those oranges to the UK where James Keillor, a grocer in Dundee Scotland bought a bargain load which he was unable to sell because of their bitter taste. His wife chopped them up skin included and made preserves which she called marmalade. This product identified by the strips of peel in the jam, is now appreciated worldwide, the astringent in the skin is said to help digestion. Operation Marmalade is the first phase in recuperating the equilibrium necessary to be a global community. I will make marmalade using a camping stove, and toast if I have access to an outlet. Otherwise I?ll use the variety of breads that celebrates the cultural diversity of New York. I'll be decorated with info promoting cultural collaboration and will present a platform for sustaining the operation. The jars that have already been prepared for Bush and the 21 members of his cabinet will be on display. Materials: Cooking (camping stove, pot, wooden spoon, knife, toaster, oranges, sugar, bread) and Graphics (signs, labels). Preparation: Military.
