Digital age deprives brain of needed downtime, researchers say

There’s a sleep deprivation theme to today’s international press review! The Times of London looks at the possibility of a sleep-deprived Prime Minister at No. 10 with the birth of the Camerons' baby. Meanwhile the Washington Post looks at how to battle a nation of sleep-deprived teens, and the International Herald Tribune examines how the digital age deprives our brain of downtime. Also: "Ebonics" translators and my bad African-American accent! WEDNESDAY, 25th AUGUST 201

Correction: I said “Vietnamien” instead of “Vietnamese” in today’s press review, falling into the trap of confusing the French and English terms.  Franglais bites again!
 
Articles in today’s international press review:
 
Wall Street Journal (Europe): “China traffic jam could last weeks”
 
China Daily: “Clotted traffic” (editorial)
 
Le Parisien: “Beijing to test out “flying buses””
 
The Times: “Budgets and Babygros: will the Camerons cope?”
 
Washington Post: “Digital diversion leaves teens and parents sleep deprived”
 
International Herald Tribune: “Digital Devices Deprive Brain of Needed Downtime”
 
Huffington Post: “Ebonics translators needed by Justice Department”
 
Gawker: “Justice department looking to hire fluent Ebonics speakers”
