Scientists in Australia have come up with a new beer that could spell the end of the dreaded hangover.To make the perfect beverage, a research team at the Griffith Health Institute looked at ways to reduce dehydration, one of the main causes of a hangover. Their solution was to reduce the alcoholic content and to add electrolytes to the beer, minerals that help keep the body"s fluid level balanced and which are often added to sportsdrinks.

The result is a beer that is still essentially beer but that is far less likely to give you a hard time the following morning."Of the four different beers the subjects consumed, our augmented light beer was by far the most well retained by the body, meaning it was the most effective at rehydrating the subjects," said associate professor Ben Desbrow. "While beer has long been known to contain positive nutrients resulting from its plant origins and fermentation process,the alcohol content means it goes out faster than water which increases dehydration."

A cloak made from mirrors is able to make it appear to an observer that the subject is frozen in time.While the conventional idea of an invisibility cloak is a device or garment that renders the subject invisible, researchers at Northwestern University have come up with a new type of cloak made from mirrors that can put time on hold for any objects inside it. A clock for example would continue to operate normally but to theexternal observer it would appear to have stopped.The "temporal cloak" currently only exists on the drawing board but according to scientists there is nothing to stop it being built using materials available today.

The advantage of being able to hide something in this way could prove invaluable in a number of applications including on the battlefield, making this of prime interest to military technology specialists. "Researchers at Northwestern University have designed aninvisibility cloak that can temporally hide objects for an indefinite period of time."

In the early 1900s, Mary Mallon infected 51 people with typhoid despite not succumbing to it herself.Known as Typhoid Mary, the exact nature of Mallon"s condition has perplexed scientists due to the fact that she"d managed to infect so many people without showing any symptoms of the disease herself. Now researchers believe they have got to the bottom of the mystery in a new study that has revealed how the salmonellabacteria can hide in immune cells and "hack" the person"s metabolism without them falling ill."To all outward appearances, she was perfectly healthy," said study co-author Dr.

Denise Monack. Despite several attempts to evade the authorities, Mary eventually ended up being quarantined for a total of almost 30 years until her death in 1938. "How exactly was the Irish immigrant known as Typhoid Mary able to infect about 50 people in New York City in the early 1900swithout succumbing to the illness herself? Scientists say they are now close to cracking the case."

Thousands of people are queuing up to have their body cryogenically preserved after they die.Cryonics offers customers the possibility of immortality by freezing their remains after death in the hope of being resuscitated again in the future. It"s a long shot, but to the thousands of people willing to pay upwards of $250,000 to have themselves preserved, it"s worth it. Clients who can"t afford to have their whole body preserved can instead opt tohave just their head frozen for a marginally smaller fee.But will it ever be feasible to thaw out a person centuries down the line and bring them back to life ? There are significant risks of damage to the body and brain from prolonged periods of being frozen and even if this were not an issue, there"s the small problem of resuscitating someone who has been dead for hundreds of years.

Whether these problems will ever be solved sufficiently to make the preservation process worthwhile however remains to be seen. "The idea of preserving a person"s body at very low temperatures in the hope that it will be restored by future medical technology has been a staple of science fiction."
