Can't Sleep? Avoid These Foods

Can't Sleep? Avoid These Foods

It's coffee that will rob me of sleep. Even a cup at one in the afternoon can pack a wallop of caffeine. I learned my lesson the hard way.

I know I'm not the only one who has figured out that coffee can lead to a sleepless night. If you’ve been suffering from insomnia, maybe you should take a close look at what you eat before you go to bed.

Inquiry cites complacency in sub fire


PORTLAND, Maine (AP) -- An investigation into a fire that crippled a U.S. submarine concludes that the Navy was complacent about fire safety during shipyard repairs and put too much faith in firefighters who'd never trained to battle a blaze aboard a submarine.

The Navy investigators said there was confusion at the start of the fire in May 2012 at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Kittery, Maine. They also said there were two hour-long periods in which the fire wasn't being fought.

The findings are part of more than 100 pages of documents obtained by The Associated Press in a Freedom of Information Act request.

It took 12 hours and the efforts of more than 100 firefighters to save the USS Miami after a small fire set by a worker quickly spread.
