STORY 1: Lawrenceville resident trains to be a U.S. Navy logistic specialist

Seaman Nhien Pham, a resident of Lawrenceville, is undergoing training as a logistic specialist at Naval Technical Training Center (NTTC) Meridian. Pham, a 2020 graduate of the University of North Georgia, joined the Navy for educational opportunities and to help her parents acquire U.S. citizenship. Her role involves providing supplies for ship stores and squadrons, playing an essential part in ship and squadron operations. Pham credits her success in the military to values learned in Lawrenceville, emphasizing respect, discipline, and the importance of staying on the right path. NTTC Meridian focuses on developing dedicated and motivated sailors and Marines.


STORY 2: Math Teacher Demetrius Nelson Kicks Off Campaign For Gwinnett School Board District 3 Seat

Demetrius Nelson, a veteran math teacher, has officially launched his campaign for the Gwinnett County Board of Education's District 3 seat, currently held by Mary Kay Murphy. Nelson, with 15 years of teaching experience, emphasizes shared principles of sympathy, empathy, trust, fairness, and credibility in his candidacy. He joins at least three other candidates in the nonpartisan school board elections in May 2024. Nelson's campaign focuses on the "Four Cs": courage, communication, community, and character. He aims to improve the balance of respect among students, parents, teachers, school leaders, and community businesses for better school outcomes.



STORY 3: Gwinnett Seeking Poll Officials For 2024 Election Cycle

Gwinnett County is organizing two hiring events on Dec. 4 and Dec. 18 to recruit poll officials for the 2024 elections cycle. The events aim to attract residents from diverse backgrounds, including those fluent in multiple languages. Attendees must complete an I-9 form and provide original identification documents for verification. With the 2024 elections cycle, including a presidential election, Gwinnett emphasizes the opportunity for residents to actively participate in the electoral process. Poll officials will receive a $390 stipend, further incentivizing community engagement. The events will take place in Lawrenceville and Dacula, offering residents a chance to contribute to democracy.

STORY 4: Zoom calls and video meetings can lead to extreme fatigue: study

A study by Graz University of Technology in Austria has provided neurophysiological evidence that Zoom calls cause "extreme fatigue" in workers and students, a phenomenon known as Zoom fatigue. The research showed that a 50-minute online lecture exhausted participants significantly more than an in-person lecture of the same duration. The findings highlight the impact of video conferencing on well-being, interpersonal relationships, and organizational communication. The study emphasizes the need for a comprehensive understanding of the psychological and physiological mechanisms behind video conference fatigue to develop effective coping strategies.


STORY 5: Exercise can improve brain function even after poor sleep: study

A new study suggests that just 20 minutes of exercise can enhance brain function after a poor night's sleep. Mental performance improves with moderate exercise, regardless of sleep quality or oxygen levels. Chronic sleep deprivation affects nearly 40% of the population and is linked to various health issues. The research explored how sleep, oxygen, and exercise impact cognitive performance. Findings indicated that even in low-oxygen conditions or after sleep deprivation, a short cycling session improved cognitive tasks. This improvement might be due to various factors such as changes in brain-regulating hormones and psychophysiological aspects like cerebral blood flow, arousal, and motivation. The study challenges the notion that cognitive performance relies solely on specific brain areas, suggesting a more complex interaction across different brain regions.
