The Columbia Lady is changing--again. She's still carrying that famous torch, much like the venerable Statue of Liberty. But the Lady's new design, recently unveiled by Columbia Pictures, differs greatly from several previous generations in the studio's 60-year history. She's less "showgirl" than she was in the '30s.

Peter Baram never imagined his idea would pop up on 28 million beer cans. But go figure. His biotechnology firm, Xytronyx Inc. of San Diego, recently developed a way to make a special ink turn visible only when exposed to sunlight. That caught the eye of Coors Light, whose big summer promotion has turned Xytronyx's technology into a glitzy marketing gimmick. Coors Light cans now feature summer images that show up only when the sun shines.
