Cheese Recall; Memory Booster

A little warning if you're planning on cooking burgers today - Kraft is recalling thousands of packages of cheese because of concerns that they may be spoiled.

The F.D.A. said it's a voluntary recall, and that no one has reported being sick, but there's concern because a supplier improperly stored one of the ingredients at a wrong temperature.

8,000 packages of individually wrapped American cheeses slices  have been affected.  The cheese packages come in a variety of sizes, but they all had a "best when used by" date of either February 20th or 21st of 2015.

A few jolts to the brain may give your memory a boost. Scientists at Northwestern University targeted a nerve hub called the hippocampus, which is a part of the brain that's associated with memory.

They found that stimulating the hippocampus with magnetic pulses improved memory by 30%, and that participants who received the treatment had an easier time remembering pictures paired with words.

Researchers said this non-invasive technique could be beneficial to Alzheimer's and stroke patients.
