sleep at night. for many people, the time before, during, and after the holidays can be filled with sleepless nights. bobby shuttleworth has some tips. the hustle, the bustle, the traffic. you might think since the holidays are over, you can sleep better. that's not the case for everyone. "i get up, wake up a lot probably because of business, a lot is on my mind." "i'm usually up and down. i've got kids, but the holiday season i actually maybe sleep a little better because i'm exhausted from shopping." physicians say the holidays can bring about their own form of stress, which can lead to insomnia. "we have a tendency to get off of our usual schedule, whether or not that

the time we decide we're going to go to sleep each night, and then we also can't forget the types of food and beverages that we consume during the holiday and they can all really have a negative impact on our ability to sleep well. when we think about caffeine, the first thing that pops into our mind is coffee, maybe tea or our favorite soda," he continued.

"...during the course of the night, after our bodies have the chance to metabolize some of that alcohol, it has the opposite effect and our sleep becomes very, very

good afternoon.. this is the agribusiness report.. i'm david geiger. congress is back in session this week... and while one of the first items on the congressional agenda concerns health care.. on top of the president's agenda is the trans-pacific partnership. but now that we're in a presidential election year.. there's likely to be twists and turns for the 12 nation trade deal..
12:38 pm
mcconnell said it was too controversial last year.. and the president shouldn't send it in until after elections.. but that could mean the new president would have to be on board with the deal.. but mcconnell could be reconsidering.. "since then, i've heard senator mcconnell back off a little bit. whether he was willing to bring it up before the election. beyond that i don't have anything to report except the general proposition, which is what i think senator mcconnell was speaking to. it's pretty difficult to get sub- controversial things through the senate and the house when you've got a presidential election year." house speaker paul ryan says he wants to bring up the trade deal as soon as he can. iowa just got a new host of efforts to conserve water and soil.. and improve nutrient management practices.. yesterday.. u-s ag secretary tom vilsack announced an expansion of u- s-d-a's conservation programs for iowa's producers.. 85 thousand acres of iowa land is now able to apply for

grants and loans.. equivalent to about a hundred 75 million dollars in investment to the state's land resources. vilsack says the goal in iowa is adding more access to programs.. and he plans to work with state partners in removing barriers and backlogs to other conservation reserve efforts.. if funding is maintained.. the u-s- d-a plans to expand access for a two hundred 50 million dollar investment. since 2009.. the u-s-d-a invested more than two billion dollars in iowa conservation.. enrolling four and a half million acres of iowa working lands into conservation. they report between 2008 and 2013.. iowa has contributed to a reduction of 260 million pounds of nitrogen and five hundred 34 million pounds of phosphorus in the mississippi rive basin. livestock markets are a little sideways at the moment.. and it looks like the grain markets are still recovering from monday's loss..
