• Even if you haven't heard the They Might Be Giants song "Istanbul (Not Constantinople)" you are probably aware that the Turkish metropolis has undergone name changes throughout its long history. It seems that when the name was Constantinople, it was common for residents of the area to refer to things "in the city," which in the Aegean dialect of Greek is pronounced "is tan polin." Eventually the name stuck, and in 1930 Turkish authorities formally adopted the name Istanbul. • For a queen bee, laying 3,000 eggs is all in a day's work.

Hendrick Over the Hump

Rick Hendrick was an automobile dealer with an interest in racing. Now he is among the nation's leaders as a car dealer and second all-time as a NASCAR owner. Jimmie Johnson's victory in the Southern 500 was the 200th for Hendrick Motorsports. In NASCAR annals, only Petty Enterprises has won more. Its total of 268 victories was achieved mostly due to Richard and Lee Petty. The Hendrick worksheet is a bit top-heavy, too, with Jeff Gordon (85 wins) and Johnson (56) far ahead of the pack, but 15 drivers have won races under the Hendrick banner. The team's four drivers now are Johnson, Gordon, Dale Earnhardt Jr. and Kasey Kahne. Sixteen races passed between Nos. 199 and 200, with Johnson winning on both ends. No. 199 was at Kansas Speedway in October 2011. "I didn't think it was ever going to happen," Hendrick quipped. "I thought we were going to haul those (commemorative) hats around forever. Oh, I'm just so proud of these guys. I want to

thank all the fans and all of the drivers over the years (like) Geoff Bodine and Tim Richmond, and all the guys that made this thing happen. When we got to 199, we got stuck." Hendrick Motorsports has won 10 Sprint Cup championships: five by Johnson, four by Gordon and one by Terry Labonte. The team was founded as The team of Rick Hendrick, at left with Jeff Gordon, has won 200 races. All-Star Racing in 1984. Only Petty Enterprises has won more races in the series. (Photo: John Bodine gave Hendrick his Clark/NASCAR This Week) first victory at Martinsville Speedway in April of that year. Twenty-one crew chiefs have led Hendrick drivers to wins, led by Chad Knaus with 54 and Ray Evernham with 47. Johnson's latest victory was Hendrick Motorsports' 14th at Darlington Raceway. Afterwards, Johnson said of his boss, "His dedication to the sport, the performance, winning, is second to none. "I thanked him for giving me a job and giving me a chance," Johnson added. "I wouldn't have won a bunch of these now if it wasn't for his vision and (sponsor) Lowe's coming on board to believe in me in the beginning. I wouldn't be here today to contribute to these great wins. But, in typical Rick Hendrick fashion he said, 'We got 200. Now let's go get 250,' so we didn't even savor it." ••• Monte Dutton covers motorsports for The Gaston (N.C.) Gazette. E-mail Monte at nascarthisweek@yahoo.com. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

• Many people have sent in the tip to use two bowls, one larger than the other, to serve cold salads at picnics. You add a few cups of crushed ice to the larger bowl, then nestle the smaller bowl into it, making it “chilled.” In any case, remember: Don’t leave food out longer than two hours. • If you’re planning food platters for your barbecue, consider making several smaller platters instead of one large dish. The large ones are harder to store when you prep beforehand, but a better reason is that the items will not go stale/too warm/too cold quite as fast, and it’s easy to switch out plates throughout the party. answers on page 19

Premeasuring Helps Overweight Dogs

DEAR PAW'S CORNER: A have a suggestion to help owners solve their dogs' weight problems. People tend to overfeed their dogs because their "cup" tends to just be grabbed out of a dog food bag. So their 1/2 cup, etc. tends to be more like 3/4 cup or so.

I took a soft-drink carton holding 24 cups. I sit down every two weeks and premeasure the amount I want to feed my dogs. This way I can just grab a cup at 6 a.m. and 4 p.m. and know it's the right amount. And it is so easy this way! My dogs used to be overweight until I started this system. -- Dwayne O., via email DEAR DAN: Great idea! While some breeds are a bit stocky and others are prone to obesity, owners can exert control over the amount of calories their dogs consume and the amount of exercise they get. Keep in mind that the size of your dog -- small, medium, or large frame, for example -- is a consideration in exactly how much it should eat and how often. Talk to your veterinarian about the amount of food it should

get, and stick to that diet. Be careful how often treats are given out, and of course, don't feed your dog under the table or give it leftovers. Exercise is another important component of weight loss -- one that benefits both you and your dog. This can take the form of twice-daily walks, as well as play time and training time. Schedule at least an hour each day to turn off the TV and turn your attention 100 percent to your dog. You'll both love it!

Tiny Dust Mites Are Fact of Life

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I am 9 years old. I read what you said about dust mites. I am wondering if they can hurt me. Will they affect me in any way? Am I safe around them? One night I was snuggling my pillow pet, and my mom said, “Remember, it has dust mites.” She gave me your article. I couldn’t sleep that night, knowing that loads of dust mites were crawling around me. So tell me. Should I be afraid? What makes them go away? What will happen? -- T.M.C. ANSWER: Have no fear, T.M.C. Dust mites have not done, are not doing and will not do anything harmful to you. I have them too. So does just about everyone. They’re all over the world. They’re less than one-hundredth of an inch, barely visible. They don’t bite you. They feed on dead skin that has fallen off the body. They don’t crawl in and out of your mouth, as the letter writer suggested. Dust mites don’t give you any illness, although some people are allergic to them and itch when exposed to them. In a very few people, they might trigger an asthma attack. None of this has happened to you or me. I don’t think it ever will. Dust mites need high humidity to survive, around 70 percent. You can cut down on their number if you keep your room humidity lower than that. Don’t try to get rid of them. They’re part of the biological diversity that exists in our world. I don’t know if they do us any good, but they don’t do us any harm, aside from the allergy thing. Sleep in peace. I apologize for ruining a night’s sleep for you. Please don’t ask me about bedbugs. They don’t make people ill either, but they give me the creeps. ••• DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My husband and I have started walking every evening. It’s our way of staying in shape. I like it. My husband actually listens to what I have to say when we walk. There is one thorn in my side, however. My husband insists that I don’t walk correctly, and he is constantly giving me ways to change my walking style. It’s extremely irritating. I have been walking the way I walk since I was an infant. Is there really a special way to do so? -- R.C. ANSWER: Most people develop a walk natural for them, and there’s nothing wrong with that. Some general pointers about the proper walking style are worth incorporating into your walking pattern. Keep your head erect with eyes focused about 20 feet in front of you. Your arms should be bent at the elbow. When the right foot hits the ground, the left arm should be in front of your body, and vice versa when your left foot hits the ground. The heel of the foot should strike the ground first, and the liftoff should come from the toes. Older people tend to shorten their walking stride in an attempt to keep both feet always on the ground. This gives them more balance and stability. They should try to take a little longer stride and use their arms for balance and stability as I described above. •••
