A study at Granada University of Spain seem to suggest than beer is better than water at rehydrating the body after exercise.
Here's what the researchers did:
Asked 25 students to run on a treadmill at 104 degrees Fahrenheit to the point of exhaustion Measured their levels of hydration, motor skills and their ability to concentrate Half the students were given water to drink and the other half were given Spanish lager
Those who were given beer had slightly better hydration levels than those who were given plain water.
A new study from the University of Japan has confirmed this, showing that although pet cats are more than capable of recognising their owner's voice they choose to ignore them - for reasons that are perhaps rooted in the evolutionary history of the animal.
This is Angela Zhang, a Californian student who just won $100,000 in the Siemens Competition in Math, Science & Technology. Her contribution to the competition? Nothing big, just discovering a cell that can fight cancer. Oh sorry, I meant developed that cell. Her work, titled "Design of Image-guided, Photo-thermal Controlled Drug Releasing Multifunctional Nanosystem for the Treatment of Cancer Stem Cells," is a total mouthful, but some are saying it's a real "Swiss army-knife" in the fight against cancer - helping both the treatment of cancer cells and their detection.
Did I mention that she's seventeen years old?
And with that, I'm going to go pretend like I've accomplished something with my life.
