SELLING COCA-COLA

We love nostalgia, and have spent our share of time looking through antique shops, visiting flea markets, scouring eBay, and examining price lists. Coca-Cola ranks highly amongst America’s favorite collectibles, and there are more than a century’s worth of items to go around. Depending on your age, your memories of Coke’s more famous slogans may include “The Pause That Refreshes,” “Coke Adds Life,” or “Things Go Better with Coke.” But over the years, various Coca-Cola advertising signs and promotional items have offered several other less-common or one-off slogans. Here are some of the more interesting examples: • Friendliest Drink on Earth

• Coke is Coca-Cola; Coca-Cola is Coke • Buy Coca-Cola Now for Picnic Fun • You Taste Its Quality • A Pure Drink of Natural Flavors • Drink Coca-Cola Highballs (the Morning After) • Zing for Your Supper with Ice Cold Coke • The Taste You Never Get Tired Of • Demand the Genuine by the Full Name • In Any Weather: Coca-Cola in Bottles • Work Safely, Work Refreshed • Delicious Coca-Cola with Soda: for Exhaustion, Cures Headache

• The Drink They All Expect

• Thirst Asks Nothing More

• Good with Food

• The Ideal Brain Tonic

• The Best is Always the Better Buy

TO YOUR GOOD HEALTH By Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

Brain Bleed Causes Stroke at Young Age DEAR DR. DONOHUE: When my brother was 47, he died of a stroke caused by bleeding in his brain. He was fine one minute, and the next he was in a coma. An autopsy showed he had had an aneurysm that ruptured. I have four other brothers and three sisters. Should we all be checked for an aneurysm? I am now 66. -W.C. ANSWER: An aneurysm is a weak spot on an artery wall. It looks like a blister. Aneurysms can develop on any artery, but they are mostly found on the aorta and on brain arteries. Should the aneurysm break, bleeding can be catastrophic. Ruptured brain aneurysms account for 10 percent of strokes, and frequently they occur in younger people, ones not thought to be at risk of a stroke. The story is much like your broth-

er’s. A person, apparently in good health, complains of having the worst headache ever. Then he might lapse into unconsciousness briefly. He might have a seizure. The mortality of a ruptured brain aneurysm is high, more than 50 percent. First-degree relatives of a person who had a brain aneurysm have an increased risk of also having one, but the risk is relatively small, about 1 percent to 4.7 percent. A first-degree relative is a parent, brother, sister or child. The best way to detect a brain aneurysm is a special kind of scan called magnetic resonance angiography. It’s a magnetic resonance imaging -- MRI -- scan with dye injected into the arteries to outline any aneurysm. Most authorities don’t recommend screening first-degree relatives, because their risk is small and the procedure carries an equally small danger. The booklet on stroke explains this common and sometimes crippling condition. Readers can obtain a copy by writing: Dr. Donohue - No. 902W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475. Enclose a check or money order (no cash)

for $4.75 U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient’s printed name and address. Please allow four weeks for delivery. *** DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I recently read that nausea and gas are symptoms of pancreatic cancer. I have both. Could I have pancreatic cancer? I am 79. -- E.B. ANSWER: Pancreatic cancer’s average age of onset is 65. The risk of coming down with it increases with age. About 34,000 new cases of it occur yearly in the United States. It is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths. What makes pancreatic cancer such a peril is its lack of signs and symptoms in its early stages. Symptoms, when they do arise, include loss of appetite, a drop in weight, stomach discomfort or pain, nausea and a sensation of fullness after taking only a few bites of food. As the cancer grows, it blocks the drainage of bile, and the skin and whites of the eyes turn yellow. Your symptoms are common to many things, and pancreatic cancer is not high on the list. However, I have learned one thing about medicine: When a person brings up a diagnosis, I can’t dismiss it, no matter how remote the chances of having it are. See your doctor. You and I will sleep better if you do. *** Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer individual letters, but he will incorporate them in his column whenever possible. Readers may write him or request an order form of available health newsletters at P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475. (c) 2009 North America Synd., Inc.

• When you open an account, your interest rate will be disclosed to you, and the card company will be required to honor that unless your payments are late.

by David Uffington

Credit-Card Changes to Favor Consumers Credit-card changes dictated by federal regulators were supposed to take effect by the end of the year. They didn’t. The feds have now given credit-card companies (that weren’t too pleased with the changes anyway) a year and a half to get ready. Here are some of the changes that will take effect in the summer of 2010: • If your interest rate goes up, t he card company will no longer be allowed to impose that higher rate on pre-exiting balances -- unless a payment is more than 30 days late.

• No more universal default. If your credit score plunges due to not paying a different debt, the card companies can no longer raise your rate because of your payment record to others. • If you have both purchases and cash withdrawals on your credit card at different interest rates, the banks will no longer be able to apply your payment only to the balance with the lowest rate while the other balance continues to accrue higher interest. Any payment amount over the minimum will be applied to the higher interest balance. • There will be no more arbitrary middle-of-theday cutoffs to accept payments. If a payment is received by 5 p.m. on a given day, it’s considered as being received that day. • If there are to be changes to your account, you must receive 45 days notice.

January 22 - January 28, 2009

• You must be given an adequate amount of time (21 days) to receive and pay your bill. • There will be no more two-cycle billing, where card companies have gone back to ding you with interest on the same amount a second time. Suggestion: Use 2009 to get organized so that you’re never late on a payment again. Make more than the monthly minimum payments and get the balances paid off as soon as possible. Don’t give the card companies any reason to use their remaining loopholes to raise your rates. There’s a good chance that more people are going to be denied credit, as the card companies won’t be able to make as much money with questionable practices.

• Triangle: Christopher Columbus was the first person to document something unusual about the area now known as the Bermuda Triangle. According to an entry in his log book dated October 11, 1492, Columbus observed “strange lights dancing on the horizon.” His crew also reported bizarre compass readings in the area. Scientists have since explained away Columbus’ fabulous claims, but nevertheless, the seeds of the legend of the Devil’s Triangle had been planted. • Pentagon: When the game of baseball was first invented, home plate was a 12-inch square, just like the bases, but set in place like a diamond. The two sides formed the beginning of the foul lines. In 1887, home plate was redesigned into a pentagon shape in order to aid the umpire in determining whether or not pitches were strikes or balls. • Square: The game show that served as the blueprint for Hollywood Squares was called The Celebrity Game. Hosted by Carl Reiner, the program posted prestigious panelists including Lauren Bacall, Robert Mitchum, and Ronald Reagan. It failed to make a dent in the ratings, however, so it was re-tooled into a celebrity tic-tac-toe game with B-list celebrities like Wally Cox and Charley Weaver. • Circle: Significant portions of Russia, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Canada and the United States lie within the Arctic Circle. North of the Circle, the Sun is above the horizon for 24 continuous hours during the Summer Solstice (around June 21), and below the horizon for 24 hours at the Winter Solstice (around December 21).
