Top 10 Irish Beers: Ales, Lagers and More
We have some bad news about St. Patrick's Day. There's no connection between beer and St. Patrick. In fact, the man wasn't even Irish, nor was his name Patrick. But you probably don't want to hear more of the truth, so let's move on and learn a little about Irish beer instead. This brief lesson focuses on beers brewed in Ireland, not Irish-style beers brewed elsewhere. First, learn a little bit about what you are drinking. You'll appreciate it more. Better yet, try to find as many of these beers as possible, line them up in shot glasses and have a tasting. If you're unfamiliar with Irish beers or just not big on them, still give them a try. They run the range from strong, rich and full-bodied for sipping, to light and crisp—perfect for thirst-quenching and as a companion for spicy foods.

The World’s 7 Strangest Delicacies
Every culture has their own traditional foods and methods of preparation, but what seems mouth-watering to some can be utterly vomit-inducing to others. While I travelled India for a month this summer, I remember talking with some locals about foods they liked and disliked, asking them if there were any particular Western dishes they found totally disgusting. To my surprise, they were almost all in accord that pizza was by far one of the most repulsive foods, claiming the smell of hot cheese made their stomachs churn. With pizza being pretty well my favourite food in the whole wide world, I became curious to know what seemingly gross dishes are actually considered delicacies depending where you are. Here are some of the notable ones I came across.

5 Tips for Getting a Better Night’s Sleep
The song by The 5th Dimension says it all: “Last night I didn’t get to sleep at all, no, no. I lay awake and watched until the mornin’ light washed away the darkness of the lonely night.” I know just how they feel, and recent research would indicate that a vast number of Americans do, too. Sleepless nights, it seems, are becoming a regular gig. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, about 60 million Americans suffer from insomnia each year. And such sleeplessness can have a devastating impact on our productivity. Brent Scott, who headed up a sleep research project at the University of Florida, found that a poor night of sleep can actually impact how satisfied workers are with their jobs. And a poll by the National Sleep Foundation concluded that 40 percent of Americans are sleeping fewer than seven hours a night during the workweek. In addition, 75 percent of those surveyed reported problems sleeping a few nights a week, often resulting in missed workdays and errors on the job, among other things.

Bing has taken the fight to Google, and amazingly, Bing has Google beaten in a few big areas.
