Researchers say the hybrid yeast that makes the world's favourite beer was probably created when a tree-dwelling Patagonian strain crossed the Atlantic with migrating birdsLager drinkers can thank the birds for their favourite tipple. That is the conclusion of US scientists who say the yeast involved in making their beloved amber nectar could have been spread round the planet by migrating birds.The work, by researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, follows up on the 2011 discovery that a key component of the yeast used to make cold-brewed beers came from Patagonia, in South America.

“But finally, there I was alone in this apartment, sitting in a chair, staring at the radiator waiting for the little guy to crawl out from behind it. Knowing the bottle was going to be empty in another minute. Wondering how I’m going to get money to buy a new one or if I should just kill myself and leap into hell feet first. That was my defining moment. The bottom of that bottle.” So began James Cusack’s hand-over-fist climb out of the abyss of his alcoholism, chronicled in his book Trouble Is a Gift. The book opens with a description of his own struggles with the substance — what he can...

The desire to 'lean in' at work must, occasionally, be superseded by the need to keel over. A nap isn't always badSome years ago, I worked in an office where the second floor bathroom had a shower room attached, with just enough floor space to accommodate a body.

It was warm in there, like an airing cupboard, perfect for soothing a hangover, and after an hour on the floor you might emerge fighting fit, the sheen and consistency of a freshly steamed pork bun.It was a l...
