    This Is What Alcohol Experts Do To 'Cure' Their Hangovers

    There is no scientific cure for a hangover - there, we said it. But there are people working hard to find one. And with Christmas party season upon us, it's the perfect time to learn their secrets. The Alcohol Hangover Research Group, for example, is made up of a team of professionals around the world with an interest in hangovers: how they impact the body and, more importantly, if we can avoid them. While they can't give us concrete findings to their studies just yet - they're still researching, after all - they, and other alcohol experts, can let us know what they do to avoid them. “We don't know what causes the hangover, so there isn't one universal cure - it's more about treating the symptom,”

    Keeping your eyes in good condition

    The eyes are said to be the windows to the soul. They also tell us a lot about how healthy we are. As an acupuncturist I observe my patients' eyes very carefully - how white the eyes are, whether there are any lumps or red veins. They also reveal a lot about our emotions, when we are happy the eyes become bigger and brighter, but when we are sad or worried they look smaller. So what can we do to keep them looking their best? Our eyes, just like many other organs, need certain nutrients to stay healthy. So the foods we eat can make a big difference to our vision.

    February election on cards after Tory win

    The country is heading for a general election at the end of February following British prime minister Boris Johnson's “stunning victory” which has handed him an 80-seat majority. As EU leaders breathed a collective sigh of relief at Mr Johnson's decisive victory, it is now certain the UK will leave the EU at the end of January, clearing the way for an Irish election on February 28. Five Cabinet ministers, speaking yesterday to the Irish Examiner, made it clear they are now actively working to a February deadline, and Taoiseach Leo Varadkar appeared to move away from his stated preference of a May election. “I've always said that the election, if it's my choice - it may not be my choice but if it is my choice - the election would happen at the right time for the country and that's still not yet,” said Mr Varadkar.
