Fort Devens Museum Offers: A Different Angle on World War II On Saturday, October 19th, Fort Devens Museum hosts a program offering a completely different perspective on the Second World War. Guest speaker botanist Judith Sumner will present her findings now brought together in her just-published book “Plants Go to War: A Botanical History of World War II.” Her program begins at 1 p.m. at the Museum, 94 Jackson Road, Devens. Sumner’s study goes well beyond just the production of food, so important for health and wellbeing of troops in the field but also for those supporting and sustaining them from the Home Front. Her talk will examine the war’s history “from the perspective of plant science,” broadly. “From victory gardens to drugs, timber, rubber, and fibers, plant supplied materials with key roles in victory,” she noted. Sumner specializes in flowering plants, plant adaptation ethnobotany, and garden

WHY ARE TRICKS PART OF HALLOWEEN? For most of the year, playing pranks on loved ones and neighbors may not be met with open arms. But attitudes tend to relax on or around October 31, when millions of people celebrate Halloween. For some celebrants, Halloween is as much about tricks as it is treats. But why are tricks even involved with Halloween? According to, the tricks played on Halloween can be traced to 19th century celebrations of the holiday. Even though Halloween can trace its roots back thousands of years to the Celtic countries of northwestern Europe, the notion that it was acceptable to prank one’s neighbors is a relatively recent addition to Halloween lore. notes that, in the 19th century, Halloween night was a time for pranks, and it was not uncommon for older children to jump out from behind bushes to frighten young kids. Communities were generally smaller and more closely knit back then than they are today, which made it safer to pull pranks on Halloween. However, as the United States became more modern and urbanized, the once-innocent mischief gradually transformed into mayhem, prompting many people to call for Halloween celebrations that were safer for young children. Modern Halloween celebrations are not nearly as mischief-heavy as those of centuries past, though many celebrants still find it fun to play a mischievous prank or two on their loved ones come October 31.

Why Are Food Allergies On The Rise? Hosting a party or a special event where food will be served has become a bit more complicated over the last several years, as hosts must now contend with food allergies when planning party menus. According to Food Allergy Research and Education, a group that works on behalf of the millions of people who have food allergies, a food allergy is a medical condition in which exposure to a food triggers a harmful immune system response. Allergies can range from mild reactions to death. Life-threatening reactions can be initiated even by small traces of the trigger foods. In August 2018, a six-year-old girl in western Australia died as a result of a dairy allergy. In 2016, Natasha Ednan-Laperouse collapsed on a flight from London to Nice after eating a baguette in which sesame seeds were not listed on the food label. Data from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention indicates that the prevalence of food allergies in children increased by 50 percent between 1997 and 2011, and it continues to rise. The CDC estimates that one in 13 children in the United States now has a food allergy. Food allergies also affect roughly 7 percent of children in the United Kingdom and 9 percent of children in Australia.

While no one can answer why food allergy rates are increasing, researchers have been working hard to figure that out. A number of agencies, including the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, are looking into the “hygiene hypothesis.” This is a link to western society’s obsession with preventing and fighting germs. Researchers surmise that a lack of exposure to infectious agents early in childhood could create a situation in which a child’s immune system mistakes a food protein as an invading germ, launching an attack. According to Dr. Leigh Vinocour of the American College of Emergency Physicians, being too clean may be leading to a rise in allergic reactions. Another theory is that the overuse of antibiotics and acid-reducing medications could change the microbiome of the stomach and digestive system, potentially resulting in health-related problems like allergies. Some other health experts say that failure to introduce common food allergens to children early in life could set them up for a lifetime of food allergies later. Dr. Adam Fox, a consultant pediatric allergist at Guy’s and St. Thomas’ hospitals in Great Britain, suggests that if parents introduce something into a young child’s diet, then the child is less likely to become allergic to it. For example, Dr. Fox cites a 2008 study of the prevalence of peanut allergies in Jewish children in the UK, where the advice had been to avoid peanuts, was 10 times higher than that of children in Israel, where babies are often given peanut snacks and peanut allergy rates are low. Many other doctors believe food allergies are still a mystery. Dr. R. Sharon Chinthrajah of the Sean N. Parker Center for Allergy and Asthma Research at Stanford University believes the cause of allergies will ultimately come down to a combination of many factors. Environmental exposure and even what mothers ate during pregnancy could have implications. Until more is learned, people must remain careful of the foods they eat and serve.

Meeting The High Cost Of Higher Education (NAPSI)—If you or someone you care about is—or hopes to be—a college student soon, a few facts and stats may prove educational: • As of February of 2019, the U.S. had $1.56 trillion in total student loan debt • This exceeds U.S. credit card debt by about $521 billion • Of the college students from the class of 2018, 69 percent took out student loans. Fortunately for the many current and former college students struggling with this financial burden—and the large number who simply can’t attend college because of finances—there are organizations that offer a solution: scholarships. Some scholarships for college are merit-based. You earn them by meeting or exceeding certain standards set by the scholarship-giver. Merit scholarships might be awarded based on academic achievement or on a combination of academics and a special talent, trait or interest. Other scholarships are based on financial need.

Many are geared toward particular groups of people; for instance, there are scholarships for women or graduate students. Some are available because of where you or your parent works, or because you come from a certain background (for instance, there are scholarships for military families). A scholarship might cover the entire cost of your tuition or it might be a one-time award of a few hundred dollars. Either way, it’s worth applying for, because it’ll help reduce the cost of your education. The experts at the U.S. Department of Education suggest you try these free sources of information about scholarships: • The financial aid office at the college or career school you’re considering • A high school or TRIO counselor • Federal agencies • The state grant agency • The library’s reference section • Foundations, religious or community organizations, businesses and civic groups • Organizations (including professional associations) related to your field of interest • Ethnicity-based organizations • The U.S. Department of Labor’s free scholarship search tool. One organization, Scholarship America, has been committed to giving as many students as possible access to higher education. Since 1958, the organization has distributed $4.2 billion to more than 2.5 million students. To further help with the financial burdens college students may face—such as overdue rent and child care—the organization created initiatives such as Dreamkeepers, which offers emergency financial aid, and Collegiate Partners, which gets educational institutions to promise not to take away student aid because of private scholarships. Currently, Scholarship America is accepting applications for the 2020 Scholarship America Dream Award. It provides financial stability to those who have overcome significant obstacles in their lives and gotten off to a strong start at college. Applicants must be in their second year or higher of postsecondary education to be eligible for the award.

Reduce Your Grocery Bill With These Simple Tips Expenses for the average household can pile up quickly. One of the easiest ways to keep a budget in check is to focus on how much is being spent on food. Chances are grocery bills can be reduced dramatically without upsetting daily routines. A 2012 Gallup poll found the average American family spends $151 a week on food. Cutting food costs often involves making smart choices. The following are some tips to help get started on the path to decreased food spending. • Make more meals at home. Although there are plenty of budget-friendly options at area restaurants, the average price for one meal enjoyed in a restaurant is still much more than the cost of cooking the same meal at home. Incorporate more homecooking into the mix and you can save. • Shop sales. Rather than planning meals on a whim, let sales guide what you eat each week. • Go mostly vegetarian. Meat tends to be more expensive than produce and grains. As a result, vegetarianinspired meals provide an easy way for shoppers to trim their grocery bills.

• Reduce ready-made options. Convenience costs money, so anything that is premade, prepackaged or already sliced and diced is bound to cost more per unit than the same items that have not been prepared. • Use a list. The experts at the financial site The Simple Dollar say that making a list of items needed before setting foot in the store is a great way to stop impulse buys that can foil a budget. Only purchase the items that are on your shopping list. • Consider a discount grocer. Many people get hung up on brand names. But remember, the advertising costs for making those names known in households are passed on to consumers. Discount grocers like Fareway, Aldi, Price Rite, and Lidl, for example, have many highquality comparable goods at a fraction of brand-name prices. Plus, shopping these grocers’ sale items helps you save even more. • Use leftovers. Don’t be wasteful with food. Practic portion control so you are not wasting food and consume leftovers before they spoil. Reducing grocery bills is a great and simple way to save money. The fragrance of what you give away stays with you. -Earl Allen
