As humans, we sometimes pay a price for drinking alcohol — in hangovers, or worse. But if you happen to be a young fruit fly, it turns out that alcohol can be just what the doctor ordered.

A Missouri trial judge has struck down a state fund designed to offer state incentives to science or technology companies.
During a special legislative session last fall, lawmakers approved the Missouri Science and Innovation Reinvestment Act, also often referred to as MOSIRA. The measure contained a clause that the law would not take effect without the passage of a separate measure, which was not approved.
Those challenging the science fund included the Missouri Roundtable for Life and Missouri Right to Life.
