Dark glasses and sleep scheduling can help shiftworkers sleep -- news flash ... NOT!

Recently we've been receiving a lot of announcements about new techniques and new drugs that can help shiftworkers to get better sleep.  For instance, a new study from Rush University Medical Center in Chicago says shiftworkers can use exposure to light and darkness, using dark glasses and specific sleep schedules.  (The study is published in the December issue of Sleep.)
--  The National Shiftwork Information Center supports further research but why are news sources reporting this like it's new?
