Sleep Inertia
  1. It’s not unusual to wake up feeling a bit groggy. For many people, it’s nothing a cup of coffee or shower can’t fix.
  2. Chances are, your morning grogginess is just sleep inertia, which is a normal part of the waking process. Your brain typically doesn’t instantly wake up after sleeping. It transitions gradually to a wakeful state.
  3. During this transition period, you may feel groggy or disoriented. If you aren’t careful, you can easily fall back asleep.
  4. Sleep inertia slows down your motor and cognitive skills, which is why it sometimes feels impossible to do anything right after you wake up.

Vinyl records

Record albums are analog, the closest thing we have to the soundwaves. These waves are drawn out of a flattened, spinning disk of vinyl by a diamond. The diamond is physically taking a ride on the record. The bumps in the grooves push the diamond up and down. 

Ask a record-collecting audiophile why vinyl is back, and you may hear a reply about sound quality. But it is much deeper than that. The form of the medium becomes part of the message it would convey and influences how the message is viewed.
