Kleine Levin Or Real Life Sleeping Beauty Syndrome: Louisa Ball Suffers From Sleeping Beauty Syndrome

Louisa Ball was the topic of discussion on Fox News on Tuesday, Feb 9. A teenager, Louisa Ball is no different from any other 15 year old girl at first glance. However, even a cursory glance at her life makes it very clear that she is indeed very different. For she is the classic case of the Sleeping Beauty Syndrome. Extraordinary as it may sound, such a syndrome exists, and Louisa Ball suffers from the Kleine Levin, or the Sleeping Beauty Syndrome. Not as romantic as it may sound to many, thanks to the most popular fairy tale of all time, the illness has Louisa Ball missing out on days in her life.

The Kleine Levin, or the Sleeping Beauty Syndrome that Louisa Ball suffers from is a very rare form of illness, in fact, so rare, that currently, there are only about a 1,000 cases in the entire world. This generally is seen in teenagers, and then goes away naturally after about ten to twelve years. Having no cure, the Sleeping Beauty Syndrome continues to baffle doctors and scientists alike.

Being a real life Sleeping Beauty has its inevitable consequences. Louisa Ball hardly ever lives a normal life, as she is never certain when she would fall asleep, or how long the slumber would last. The maximum period of time that she has slept for is about two weeks, without a break. As Louisa Ball suffers from the Kleine Levin or the Sleeping Beauty Syndrome, it takes its toll on her family too. They have to force food down her throat as she sleeps, and make her use the bathroom.

'Monopoly' gets a makeover!

Hasbro has unveiled the design of the new 75th anniversary edition of their classic board game, Monopoly, set to hit stores in fall of 2010. "Monopoly: Revolution Edition" is slick and round instead of dull and square, with debit cards and an ATM instead of paper money and a banker, clear plastic representations of the classic tokens (bye-bye, little boot!), and clips of popular songs (like Rihanna’s "Umbrella," Daniel Powter’s "Bad Day," and Beyonce's "Crazy in Love") that play after certain actions.

This is not the first game to get a modern reboot (there’s an update to the classic Trivial Pursuit, and Scrabble got a face-lift for its 60th anniversary), but Monopoly’s changes will undoubtedly appeal to the 21st century's techie youngsters. For one thing, the adjusted-for-inflation prizes are more impressive.

Players can collect $2 million dollars for passing “Go” instead of a mere $200 — practically what the average kid gets for losing a tooth these days. But it's bound to annoy die-hard fans of the comforting classic version, who might send it directly to jail come next fall. (At least they can take comfort in the fact that Monopoly: Revolution retains the classic Atlantic City-based street system.)

So far, the Internet echo chamber's biggest criticism focuses on the new version's tight security. It seems that when it comes to Monopoly, half the fun comes from cheating by stealing from the till when nobody's looking, a loophole the new version closes with its fancy electronic banking. (However, an electronic banking version has actually been on the market for years.) Surely our nation's tech-savvy youth will somehow find a way to game the "Monopoly" system, assuming they can be pried away from screens long enough to start a game.

Felt like playing so much!!
If anyone ever buy this, plz do let me know..
