    'I'm off for a nap, boss, but don't worry ... it'll help your bottom line' - Samantha Grice, CanWest News Service
    FATIGUE I Studies show that a midday snooze increases alertness and productivity

    "I'm tired, boss. And I wasn't going to mention this, but since you've read this far, I think you're tired, too. Last week I noticed you doing the head-bob. I think you were on a conference call with the CEO.

    But we are not alone. Did you know that nearly 50 million North Americans are sleep deprived? And a study by Cornell University found that fatigue costs the United States $150 billion US a year in reduced job productivity and accidents related to sleepy workers? Hello, Exxon Valdez!"
