Sleep is the body's natural 'pause button', During sleep, the muscles relax, Breathing gets slow, The heartbeat gets slow, The brain works differently too, Why do we sleep?
Scientists aren't sure, But they are sure that sleep is very important for the brain and the body, Key words body muscles breathing heartbeat brain scientists human hibernate in danger hunted The differentstages 01 sleep- Human [vear-old] Read the text, Write the stages of sleep in the correct place on the graph, Humans sleep in cycles of about minutes, There are two types of sleep: The body slows, the muscles relax.
It is easy. Stage two After ten minutes of light sleep, you start 'true sleep' This lasts about 20 minutes. People breathe more slowly, the heart beats more slowly. Most sleep in the night is 'true sleep'. Stage three Breathing and heartbeat are very slow now. This is because the eyes move very quickly. People have between three and five REM phases a night. They are not awake but the brain is awake and active.
People dream during REM sleep but the body cannot move. That stops people 'acting' their dreams. Sleep Stage ' 1 1. There is some muscle activity. It is difficult to wake up from this sleep. They are active dUring the night. But not all animals I sleep the same number of hours. What is important for animals is how safe I e they are when they are asleep, If an animal is in danger for example, if other animals hunt it to eat then it will sleep fewer hours.

In a Harold Innis and Marshall McLuhan-inspired, media deterministic way of the 's and 60's, it would be tempting to ask: How will e-books alter our concept of a book, our thinking and our consciousness?
How will the digital word change the powers and patterns of society? Simply, will e-books change the world?
This position has been criticised and modified by both media theorists and by many other scholars. In the 's Raymond Williams complemented technological determinism with his own intentional view on technological research and development. He showed that many technological innovations, like motion pictures and television, were not only causes and agents of change, but just as much effects, the result of intentional research and development based on foreseen practices and social needs [ 6 ].
For Williams, technology is not a self-acting force, a more or less accidental activity, isolated from the rest of society. On the contrary, technological research and implementation is a central part of the economic and cultural development of modern society and as such technological development is embedded in society itself as one of its core activities [ 7 ].
According to Williams, in order to understand a technology like e-books, one should not just focus on its consequences, but more importantly analyse the development of e-books as part of a broader economic and social pattern.
Why were e-books invented in the first place? In the 's Joshua Meyrowitz, a medium theorist, tried to fill the gap between the grand theories of media determinists like Innis and McLuhan and micro-oriented social interaction theorists like Erwin Goffman [ 8 ].
By using a situational approach, Meyrowitz illustrated how new media are changing the structure of social situations. By changing the patterns of information flow, new media are creating new situations with new roles, new behaviour and new actors [ 9 ]. Even if Meyrowitz and Williams rejected the one-sidedness of media determinism and pointed to the fact that the theory did not explain exactly how media cause changes, they still recognised that many media deterministic analyses have substantially contributed to our understanding of media and society.
But not all recognised these insights. In the 's Brian Winston challenged the concept of communication technology revolutions. Supported by findings in extensive empirical studies, Winston claimed that developments of new technologies are much longer and slower processes than usually assumed. Winston also argued that the innovation and development of new media is dependent on general scientific competence in society.
More importantly, the acceptance and later diffusion of technologies are dependent on supervening social necessities and influenced by cultural and economic forces. Winston gives the social sphere primacy as the conditioning and determining factor in the development of new media [ 10 ]. Reflecting on the deterministic view on media influence, one could be attempted to drop this perspective all together, or at least minimise the ambitions of questions on the potential effects of e-books.
Instead of asking global questions on the nature of the digital e-book galaxy and how e-books will change everything, including our minds, it would be safer to more cautiously ask if the invention of e-books will matter at all. Will e-books change anything?
Of course e-books matter, and the invention of e-books will have consequences. The point is that e-book technology is not the only agent of change and probably not the most important agent of change.
Instead of isolating e-books as the focus of our research, we should broaden our perspectives and see e-books as part of larger and deeper economic and technological trends. In addition to view the e-book as a cause, we should look at the e-book as more of a symptom and itself an effect, the result of intentional research done with certain purposes and practices already in mind. Winston has an important point which can be applied here.
The development of e-books is the result of social and economic necessities, rather than the consequence of ingenious ideas as technological myths often want us to believe [ 11 ].
In accordance with the governing ideas of non deterministic perspectives, we should ask questions like: What were the scientific and technological premises for the development of e-books? What purposes are e-books meant to fulfill? How will the economic interests of publishers and rights owners influence the spread and use of e-books? How will the conservative habits of readers slow down the diffusion of e-books?
And most importantly, what economic and social forces created and shaped the e-book technology? Brian Winston and many other theorists have in the past decade tried to describe and explain the information and network society that evolved during the most recent quarter of a century, much of it as media deterministic thinking.
Manuel Castells, for example, remarked that a technological revolution, centred around information, transformed the way we think, produce, trade, consume, manage, communicate, live and die [ 12 ]. Castells argues that the dilemmas of technological determinism are false dilemmas. Technology is simply society and society cannot be understood or even represented without its technical tools. Castells has been criticised for not taking social conditions into closer consideration.
His analyses therefore end up echoing deterministic positions of the past as well as those of the digital economy of today [ 13 ]. In spite of this criticism, Castells has been given credit for his overwhelming documentation of the impact of network technologies on both the global economy and on our daily lives [ 14 ].
At a micro level, we are all part of the network society when we use our credit cards, order a taxi, pay a bill, use a card key, pass a surveillance camera, watch cable TV, use our PC, surf the Internet or use our mobile phones. At a macro level network logic is the central organisational principle of management and production in multinational companies.
It is also a driving force in the ongoing concentrations of companies in most branches. Networks make the infrastructural basis of a global flow of information, money and commodities. In the modern economy both productivity and competitiveness are dependent on an ability to generate, parse and make use of information. Thus information is one of society's most important end products. Since information is digital, it is available at all times to those who have technological competence, financial resources and access.
Patterns of presence in networks and patterns of access to information constitute, according to Castells, the patterns of power in modern society [ 15 ]. As part of this general tendency media industries have been transformed.
New media are evolving, most of them centred around networks, especially the Internet. Radio, television and newspapers, as well as photography, music and movies, have been transformed into digital media [ 16 ]. In addition to Castells and Winston, other theorists have examined central features of this transformation, that is the digitisation of media and their convergence on telecommunications networks.
All media and telecommunication are based on related technologies, converging towards access and control on the Internet [ 18 ]. Networks and digital devices give traditional media new and common ways of distributing their content. This tendency is also a part of the development of printed media, of newspapers, magazines - and now books. The book industry, as all other media, is becoming an integrated component of the global communication industry [ 19 ]. It is exactly here, in the penetrating impact of network and information technology on society that we find the deeper reasons for the development of e-books.
Perhaps traditional book technology is not suited to, or at least not sufficient for, the network economy. It is a fact that information in a book is analog; it is locked-up in ink and printed on paper. In the network economy information is digital, which of course is essential for its migration and use. To be part of the new economy the content of books can no longer be longer locked inside the covers of books and stored in warehouses or libraries. It has to be freed and read.
And e-book technology is a digital and network based technology for both distributing and reading books. Was the development of e-books inevitable? Are e-books the vehicle for the book industry to play an important part in the network society of today and tomorrow? Or does the information society and network economy need the content of books available in a faster and more efficient way?
Are e-books an answer to a social necessity?
In this essay I will claim that e-books are a social necessity and make this claim the premises of further arguments. I will argue that exactly because e-book technology meets the requirements of the network society, its development and diffusion will trigger major changes in the book industry and in our concepts of books and reading.
The Method In support of these arguments I will follow the advise of Joshua Meyrowitz in neither being too macro- nor too micro-oriented in my perspective [ 20 ], but rather operate at a level of middle range theories.
I will focus on the challenges book publishers face in the current information and network society. Information and communication technology, with all its publication forms and distribution channels, have created new value chains, giving traditional publishers both new competitors and new possibilities. I will show how this new situation forces publishers into new roles and patterns of behaviour, moving from traditional book producers to content providers with a whole range of products for sale, including e-books.
I will more specifically show how the new economy, with its network supported flow of information and money, in a fundamental way not only changes the distribution and trade of books, but also in a rather fundamental way alters the ways book content is produced and, ultimately, changes the nature of the book itself. By focusing on the situation of publishers and book production processes, I hopefully will shed some light on the actors and institutions surrounding publishers.
If my assumptions about e-books are correct, then it will gravely affect authors, artists and illustrators, book distributors and retailers, educators, students and of course readers.
This is an uncertain way of predicting the future. We do not know how readers, teachers or publishers will respond to e-books because the technology could have unforeseen effects and new technologies not yet anticipated could change the picture altogether.
But these uncertainties must not prevent us from pursuing this analysis. I will start by defining e-books, describe their development and indicate a probable pace of diffusion. In its digital form the content of an e-book escapes the pages of an ordinary book because simply the content is no longer tied physically to paper. An e-book can in principle be available anywhere through the Internet, accessed any hour of the day. All you need is an Internet connection, an e-book reading device and money.
So what is an e-book? A narrow definition treats an e-book as a digital object designed to be read on a handheld reading device or to be listened to from a speech-generating tool.
The core of this definition is that an e-book is content, a digital object containing an electronic representation of a book, most commonly thought of as the electronic analog of a paperback or cloth-bound book [ 21 ]. However, to think of an e-book as one digital object is misleading.
An e-book is usually a collection of several digital objects or documents, which in turn are packaged and formatted with the intention of being displayed on a handheld device or read by a speech generating application. An e-book is a digital publication containing content files and style sheets in many forms, with metadata, digital rights, navigation and other components.
The content is made up of text documents, digital pictures and illustrations. Style sheets give typographic and layout directives on how to display the content of the book while other files organise the order of the book's content. Metadata provides a summary about the book for example, authors, publisher, ISBN and price , while digital rights management DRM files specify the rights of the owner of the book. All of these different documents are collected in one publication in a proprietary format, such as the.
In a narrow sense an e-book reader is most typically a handheld electronic device capable of displaying e-books. E-book reader software operates on an e-book reader providing copyright protection and book display functions [ 24 ]. E-books in the strict sense are read on handheld devices. In a slightly wider sense, e-books are also those digital objects formatted in order to be read on e-book reading software made for personal computers, like MS Reader and Adobe Acrobat E-book Reader [ 28 ] the former Glassbook.
In many cases these applications themselves are called e-book readers. In a much broader sense, the term e-book is applied to all linear texts of some length that can be shown on a computer screen.
But in this sense e-books are difficult to distinguish from all other electronic texts, like those created in word processors and desktop publishing programs.
Most of these were not created as "books". If they are and can be shown on a screen, they are definitely not made with the purpose of always being read on a monitor. In the broad sense e-books have been around for several decades. In the Gutenberg Project [ 29 ] thousands of books, mostly classic and public domain literature, have been made available for free as digital documents since the 's. These kinds of books are usually available as simply text files, so they are not e-books in the narrow sense of the word.
To be treated as e-books, they have to be converted into and formatted using a specific e-book reading application, for which a simple text file makes a good starting point [ 30 ]. Before the term e-book came around in the late 's it was not unusual to talk about electronic books in terms of files collected in the Gutenberg Project or books formatted on compact discs. There were also early unsuccessful attempts at making reading software for computers.
These programs were meant to be reading software for what was then called electronic books [ 31 ]. Today the term e-book refers to digital objects specially made to be read with reading applications operating on either a handheld device or a personal computer.
This modern concept of e-books came into common use after Martin Eberhart and Jim Sachs both started their own companies and developed Rocket eBook and SoftBook, the first two handheld e-book reading devices. This meaning is frequently used in the Open E-Book Forum OEBF , which is working towards standardisation of publication structures and copyright protection systems in e-books [ 32 ].
It is also in the narrow meaning that Microsoft most often uses for e-books. Adobe uses the term e-book in a slightly different way than most others in promoting the Portable Document Format PDF. PDF is first of all popular. Even if they are made to be printed, PDF documents can be read with Adobe's Acrobat Reader, certainly the most widespread reading software of all. In Adobe acquired Glassbook and their e-book reading software and made Adobe Acrobat E-book Reader a specific e-book reading program.
Adobe, like Microsoft, is also developing font-rendering technologies to improve screen reading. This, and the fact that PDF documents can be optimised for screen reading, makes it natural to include PDF in our concept of e-books. E-book retailers like site. Adobe and PDF demonstrate that it can be difficult to distinguish e-books - documents mainly made and meant for reading on screen - from other documents, like files developed in word processing applications and desktop publishing programs.
On one hand digital objects that are meant for print, such as documents intended to be printed on demand, like PDF files, will in many cases be called e-books, mainly because they are distributed as digital objects, often read before they are printed locally. On the other hand, narrowly defined e-books, files meant for handheld devices or PC reading applications, in many cases have the technical capability of being printed and reproduced like traditional books and documents.
E-books, both in the narrow and in the Adobean sense, are distributed via Internet and sold in many ways. Some authors are selling their own e-books from their Web sites, such as Stephen King. Some e-book stores have specialised in selling e-books of one format only or books of one specific genre.
Other complete e-bookstores, like site. In the e-book trade there are many different business models, but there are commonalities: they all use the Web and online payment systems and they usually include some kind of copy protection scheme.
E-books are produced by many kinds of electronic publishers, from bestseller publishers to university presses and multinational publishing conglomerates. Most traditional publishers are moving gently and cautiously into the e-book business. For example, in Norway and Sweden Aschehoug and Bonniers have stared to sell a limited number of e-book titles online.
