1.) If you’ve always wanted to make beer your career, your life long dream could be coming true. There’s a new major being brewed up at Colorado State University. You can now enroll and work toward your degree in fermentation science and technology. As part of the program, the university is installing a brewery in the student center where students can taste classmates' efforts.
2.) Maybe those signs at restaurants showing the amount of calories in the food you’re eating are having an effect – a new study has discovered people choose fewer calories when shown the exercise need to burn it off. For example, it will mean you’ll need to mow the lawn for 75 minutes to work off that 490 calorie Big Mac. Before eating that classic blueberry muffin from Starbucks, remember that you’ll need to do two hours of housework to burn it off. And that tasty Mars Bar – you’ll need to water your garden for 2 ½ hours to burn off those 260 calories.
3.) It used to be the cure for a lazy eye was wearing an eye patch. Now, doctors have come up with a new way to cure the visual disorder. According to a study in Current Biology, playing Tetris is more effective. Test subjects played the 1990s video game wearing special goggles that blocked one eye from seeing, and it lead to improvement in the lazy eye after just two weeks.
