The First Annual International Parliament* of Night Owls
The first International Parliament of
Night Owls will be held in Saskatoon, Canada, June 2 - 4, 2006
at the Sheraton Cavalier Hotel. The Parliament will open with a
Meet & Great Reception on the evening of June 2. Sessions on
specific topics will take place on June 3. A Special Meeting of
the Night Owl Network will take place on the morning of June 4.
A Scientific Forum is also planned for the afternoon of June 2.
Program details and Registration forms will follow in January.
This will be the first such
gathering of night owls in the world. The primary purpose is to
bring night owls together to share experiences and learn about
strategies for living in an early bird world. Night owls will
leave this parliament healthier, happier and with a greater
confidence as night owls.
One component of the parliament will be
presentations and discussion groups on a variety of issues of
significance to night owls. Another component of the parliament
will be research. The plan is to have researchers present some
of the latest research regarding night owl behavior and
participants may be able to contribute to some of this research
And finally, plan to have fun. There will
be many opportunities to meet and socialize with other night
owls. In fact, you may not care about the program at all and may
simply wish to come and meet and visit with other night owls.
Stay tuned for further details as they are
confirmed. If you have questions or ideas regarding the
parliament, please send emails to

ABC - TV is Seeking a Night Owl family for
it's TV show 'Wife Swap'
I am a casting producer for ABC Television's hit reality show,
Wife Swap. We are looking for Night Owls, Children of the Night,
third shift workers, All-Nighters, insomniacs, Midnight Riders
and people who just can't "Do" Day Shift, a family that would
rather sleep during the day and work or stay up throughout the
night. It should be more than just a fun thing to do, it should
be a way of life. Everyone in the family should have this
passion in their lives.
In case you are unfamiliar with
the show, the premise of Wife Swap is to take two different
families and have the mom's switch place to experience how
another family lives. Half of the week, mom lives the life of
the family she is staying with. Then she introduces a "rule
change" where she implements rules and activities that her
family has. Each family should consist of two parents and at
least one child over the age of five and should reside in the
continental U.S. It's a positive experience for people to not
only learn but teach other families other ways of life.
Wife Swap airs on Disney owned
ABC television on Mondays at 8 pm (the family hour)- which was
on before Monday Night Football! There is another show that
copies ours. We focus on having fun, learning and teaching. They
focus on conflict. I just want to make sure our show doesn't get
confused with theirs!
is a very unique experience that can be life changing for
everyone. In addition, each family that tapes an episode of Wife
Swap receives $20,000 as compensation for their time. Anyone who
refers a family that appears on our program receives $1000 as a
'thank you" from us.
