Tips on Choosing the Best Bed

There's much more to choosing a good bed than how you think it will look in your bedroom. There's plenty to think about, from innerspring options to memory foam and even hybrid mattresses. At Sleep King, our priority is our customers. We pride ourselves on excellent customer service. We want to do right by you, which why we want to be sure you find the perfect bed when you visit our mattress store in St. George, SC. To help you get started, here are a few tips on choosing the best bed for your sleep needs.

Visit a Showroom

Visit a Showroom

This tip might seem like a no-brainer to some, but it's important that you visit a showroom so that you can lay on different beds to get a feel for what you like. At Mattress King, you will have the chance to explore different styles, designs, and shapes, and mattress materials. Finding a bed online at a price you can afford is great, but you should lie on the bed first, not just look at it on a screen.

Determine Budget

Determine Budget

Here's a surprising fact: just because a mattress costs more money, it doesn't mean it's going to be a better bed. Sure, more expensive beds might have newer technologies and materials, but not everyone has the budget to walk into a mattress store in St. George and spend $3,000. Figure out what price range you're comfortable paying and look at the best options for your bottom line.

Consider Bedroom Size

Consider Bedroom Size

Before you swing by our showroom and start trying out beds, it might be a good idea to measure the space where your new mattress will go. If your bedroom is on the small side, a king-sized bed might be too big. Similarly, a small bed in a huge room might make for strange aesthetics. Aim for a reasonable amount of room around your bed - enough where you can walk around comfortably. As mentioned above, get specific measurements of the area you plan to use. That way, you have peace of mind knowing your new mattress will fit in your bedroom.

Consider Bedroom Size

Choose a Mattress Material

This tip often comes down to personal preference. It will take a little bit of trial and error to figure out which material works best for your back - innerspring, memory foam, or latex. While your friend's and family's opinions matter, keep in mind that their mattress choice was subjective. What works for them won't necessarily work for you.

Need a quick refresher on different mattress materials? Here's a quick overview
 King Bedroom Sets St. George, SC

Innerspring

Also called coil mattresses, innerspring beds are probably the most well-known on this short list. Innerspring mattresses are often more affordable than their latex and memory foam counterparts. These beds are ideal for people who want a lot of support and a cooler night's sleep.

Latex

This material is known for its great cooling properties and overall comfort. With latex, there are no strange off-gassing odors like you sometimes get with memory foam. Latex mattresses are ideal for people who want a responsive, bouncy feel and may have problems sleeping hot.

Memory Foam

First developed by NASA in the 70s, memory foam is probably the most popular material in the modern mattress market. Memory foam conforms to every inch of your body, giving you maximum comfort and support. Memory foam is also know for its anti-motion properties. Memory foam can be a great choice if you tend to toss and turn at night and sleep with a partner who wakes up when you do. Memory foam mattresses are ideal for people who need pressure relief, good support, and refreshing comfort.

Think About Your Back

Think About Your Back

If you have a bad back, it's crucial that you find a mattress with proper support. Slat and spring beds often offer plenty of support, but latex and memory foam options have come a long way. If you want memory foam or latex but find the support to be subpar, consider an adjustable base instead of a normal platform. That way, you can always sleep in a comfortable position that benefits your back.

Saint Joseph's Hawks (9-10) vs. George Washington Colonials (10-9)

The Line: George Washington Colonials -4 / Saint Joseph's Hawks +4 ; Over/Under: 149.5 (Get latest betting odds)

The Saint Joseph’s Hawks and the George Washington Colonials meet Wednesday in college basketball action from Charles E. Smith Center. Saint Joseph’s is 9-10 so far this year. The Hawks beat UMass in their last game. As for George Washington, they’re currently 10-9 after a win over Dayton on Saturday. Check back all season long for free college basketball picks at Sports Chat Place.

Saint Joseph’s Hawks

Saint Joseph’s posted a 6-8 run to start the year, beating Lafayette, Albany, Penn, Saint Peter’s, Sacred Heart and Central CT State. The Hawks are 4-3 since then with wins over Loyola IL, La Salle and UMass.

Matched up against UMass on Saturday, Saint Joseph’s posted a 43-36 advantage in the first half. The Hawks scored another 31 points after the break and won it 74-68. Cameron Brown (25 points) and Erik Reynolds (23 points) each notched six rebounds.

George Washignton Colonials

Over on the George Washington side, they beat VA State, Howard, MD Eastern Shore, New Hampshire, South Carolina, Coppin State and Loyola IL in their first 14 games. The Colonials have gone 3-2 since then with losses to Richmond andSaint Louis.

On Saturday versus Dayton, the Colonials were up 36-22 by halftime. George Washington was outscored 47-40 from there but hung on for the 76-69 win. James Bishop was tops in scoring with 27 points and seven assists.

ANDREW’S FREE PICK

I’m going to take a stab on Saint Joseph’s. You could make a case either way, though; both teams are comparable and playing well lately. In any case, Saint Joseph’s has turned around nicely after their four-game losing streak this month. The Hawks have scored 71 or more points in four straight outings, winning three of those. As for George Washington, they’ve hit 74 or more points in four straight games. This could easily turn into a high-scoring shootout. Should be a fun one to watch.

The moon will eclipse Uranus Saturday (Jan. 28)

A lucky few will have a rare glimpse of one of the solar system's outer planets disappearing behind Earth's moon.

Uranus, which is visible only through a telescope, will disappear behind the moon during an occultation on Saturday (Jan. 28), and people in the far north of the world and a portion of Asia will have the chance to watch it.

At least part of the event will be visible in areas of Alaska, Canada's very far north, Greenland, Russia and Japan, according to a visibility map from In-The-Sky.org. The occultation is listed at 10:28 p.m. EST Saturday, Jan. 28 (0328 GMT on Jan. 29) but visibility will vary by region.

There are no livestreams listed on YouTube yet, but if we spot one we'll be sure to let readers know.

Occultations happen when one celestial body appears to pass behind another from the perspective of Earth, although in reality, Uranus and the moon are separated by many billions of miles (or kilometers). Uranus' average distance from the sun is roughly 1.8 billion miles (2.9 billion km), according to NASA. That's about 19 times the distance from the Earth to the sun.

"Lunar occultations are only ever visible from a small fraction of the Earth's surface," In-The-Sky.org wrote. "Since the moon is much closer to the Earth than other celestial objects, its exact position in the sky differs depending on your exact location."

Looking for a telescope to see the planets or anything else in the December night sky? We recommend the Celestron Astro Fi 102 as the top pick in our best beginner's telescope guide.

Uranus is the first planet with a named discoverer, as it did not come to light until relatively high-powered telescopes were available. English astronomer William Herschel spotted spotted the planet on March 13, 1781 and suggested naming it after his patron, King George III. The name "Uranus" was suggested by German astronomer Johann Elert Bode, whose observations helped confirm the newly found object was a planet.

If you miss this occultation of Uranus due to cloudy skies or unlucky geography, there's another opportunity coming up on Sept. 29 that will be visible from portions of Canada, eastern Alaska and the western United States, In-The-Sky.org says.

If you're looking for binoculars or a telescope to see the solar system planets like Uranus, our guides for the best binoculars and the best telescopes have options that can help. If you need photography gear, consider our best cameras for astrophotography and best lenses for astrophotography to prepare for the next planet sight.

The 13th edition lineup of the popular tour of ’60s pop music acts, known as the Happy Together tour, has announced its 2023 dates and lineup. The tour is named, of course, for the Turtles’ big hit that reached #1 on March 25, 1967.

The Turtles continue as the signature headliners, but with the voice of the Archies, Ron Dante, again joining Turtles founding member and singer Mark Volman. (Fellow Turtles founder, Howard Kaylan, hasn’t participated for several years.)

The rest of the 2023 lineup: Gary Puckett & the Union Gap, Little Anthony, the Vogues, the Classics IV and The Cowsills. Together, they represent dozens of Top 10 radio hits. Watch them all perform in the opening night’s finale below.

The new edition begins in late May and continues into September. (See the dates below; we expect even more to be announced.)

The Turtles have sold over 40 million records worldwide. Their hits include: “Happy Together,” “She’d Rather Be With Me,” “Elenore,” “It Ain’t Me Babe” and “You Showed Me.”

Watch Volman and Dante perform “Happy Together” during the 2019 tour

Gary Puckett & the Union Gap enjoyed five Top 10 singles including their 1967 debut, “Woman Woman,” as well as “Young Girl” and “Lady Willpower.”

Little Anthony led the vocal group the Imperials to their first hit, “Tears On My Pillow,” in 1958, and followed it with such singles as “Goin’ Out of My Head” and “Hurt So Bad.”

Watch him perform “Tears On My Pillow” in 2022

The Vogues scored such Top 10 singles as “Turn Around, Look at Me,” “You’re the One” and “Five O’Clock World.”

The Classics IV scored three top 5 singles within two years, “Spooky,” “Stormy” and “Traces.” Their frontman, Dennis Yost, died in 2018.

The Cowsills have been part of the last several years of the tour. Bob, Paul and Susan Cowsill are a family singing group and the original inspiration for television’s The Partridge Family and are best known for the songs “The Rain, The Park and Other Things,” “Hair,” “Indian Lake” and “Love American Style.”

They released a well-received studio album, Rhythm of the World, in 2022.

Today, Dave Matthews Band shared they’ll set out on a tour of the United States this summer while announcing their 10th studio album, Walk Around The Moon, set to drop on the same day their tour kicks off on May 19. Along with the album and tour announcement, Dave Mathews Band dished out the first taste of the 12-track project, which was shaped during the COVID-19 pandemic and reflects upon the times while encouraging listeners to find common ground, “Madman’s Eyes.”

Like the rest of Walk Around The Moon, “Madman’s Eyes” was recorded by producer Rob Evans and executive produced by longtime Dave Matthews Band collaborator John Alagia. The song sees the band entwine Middle Eastern inclinations with glided horns and strings, which the ensemble are so widely renowned for. On the track–which debuted at Nationwide Arena in Columbus in November of 2022–Dave Matthews sings, asking, “When it’s too late to untwist the knife / How do we face hatred with the love inside us.”

Dave Matthews Band’s summer tour will kick off after a trio of dates in Mexico at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas, on May 19. From there, the ensemble will make stops across the country performing for two nights in Wilmington, N.C.; Charleston, S.C.; Noblesville, Ind.; Chicago; Gilford, N.H.; Saratoga Springs, N.Y.; Camden, N.J.; West Palm Beach, Fla., and Irvine, Calif. Other notable cities include Nashville, Tenn., Bend, Ore., Columbia, Md., Hartford, Conn., Dallas, Cincinnati, and Forest Hills, N.Y., where the band will play their first show at the historic Forest Hills Stadium in New York on June 9. Dave Matthews Band will conclude their travels with a three-day Labor Day weekend stint at the Gorge Amphitheatre in George, Wash., in what has become a tradition on Sept. 1-3.

An online ticket presale for members of the Dave Matthews Band Warehouse Fan Association is currently underway and can be accessed here. Citi is the official card of the 2023 tour, and card members will have access to presale tickets starting Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 10 a.m., through Thursday, Feb. 16 at 10 p.m. local time. Learn more about those tickets here. General on-sale tickets will go on sale on Feb. 17 at 10 a.m. local time. Learn more and find tickets here.

Top Schools For Online Nursing Master's Degree Programs

For those looking to pursue a master's degree in nursing (MSN) remotely, the University of South Carolina is the top place to do so, according to the latest "Best Online Master's in Nursing Programs" rankings from U.S. News & World Report.

This university in Columbia, South Carolina held the No. 1 spot in the overall rankings by itself this year, after also placing first via a three-way tie last year.

Duke University in Durham, North Carolina, Ohio State University in Columbus, and the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa tied for second place this year.

Explaining the methodology used to determine these rankings, U.S. News noted that such a degree can "pave the way for more advanced roles in administration and leadership."

This year, the outlet ranked schools using five categories: engagement (30%); faculty credentials and training (20%); peer assessment (20%); services and technologies (20%); and student excellence (10%).

Of the schools surveyed in September and October 2022, 203 schools (35%) said they offer online nursing master's degree programs, with the remainder either saying they do not offer such programs or choosing not to respond. This year's number was up slightly from the previous year, when 194 schools reported that they offered these programs.

U.S. News also collected additional information from the 203 schools, which was then scored based on ranking indicators under each of the five main categories.

The sole change for this year's rankings involved student indebtedness, with the average amounts that graduates borrowed now weighted twice as highly as the proportion who borrowed, instead of both being weighted 50-50. "This change was made to further emphasize the breadth of each program's affordability for borrowers with different financial circumstances," U.S. News noted.

These latest rankings were released amid Harvard Medical School's decision to withdraw from the outlet's rankings, which garnered media attention last week. Stanford University in California, Columbia University in New York City, and the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia quickly followed suit. The extent to which other healthcare institutions will also withdraw from the rankings remains to be seen. (Previously, a number of law schools pulled out of the rankings.)

In announcing its "Best Online Programs" rankings, U.S. News noted that they "should be just one element" of a prospective student's search. A directory that contains important characteristics, such as academic offerings, requirements, and costs of attending, are paired with the rankings, the outlet said.

Below are this year's top 10-ranked schools for the overall "Best Online Master's in Nursing Programs," and their scores out of 100. Multiple schools tied in the No. 2, 5, 8, and 10 spots with the same scores. The top three schools in additional MSN categories -- nursing administration and leadership, nursing education, and nurse practitioner-family categories, as well as programs for veterans -- are also highlighted below. The full rankings are available here.
