• The first Olympic Winter Games were in Chamonix, France, in 1924. The Canadian hockey team outscored their opponents 110 to 3, winning five matches and the gold medal. Canada won the gold in the following three winter Olympics, and settled for the silver in 1936. Since then, Canada’s hockey dominance has waned even though the popularity of hockey remains strong among the Canadian people. Prior to 2010, Canada’s most recent hockey gold was in 2002 in Salt Lake City, and that win followed a 50-year gold medal drought. In 2010, however, at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada had a chance to win hockey gold on Canadian soil. In one of the most exciting games in hockey history, Canada defeated the USA 3-2 in overtime to win the gold medal. There were many other great Olympic moments, but considering how much Canadians love hockey, this was a colossal victory for them.

By Samantha Weaver • It was American author, social critic, economist and political commentator Thomas Sowell who made the following sage observation: "Much of the social history of the Western world over the past three decades has involved replacing what worked with what sounded good." • Visiting the longest chain of mountains on Earth requires some rather special arrangements -- aquatic ones, to be precise. The 10,000-mile-long Mid-Atlantic Ridge, as its name indicates, is located on the floor of the Atlantic Ocean. The only parts of the chain above water are a few volcanic islands, including Iceland and the Azores. • Those who live in Florida probably won't be surprised to learn that they live in the state with the most instances of lightning every year. • If you travel to Alaska, you can go to the North Pole -- the town of North Pole, that is. It's not the real deal, though. The town is actually 1,700 miles south of Earth's geographic North Pole. • Famed American composer Philip Glass was a member of both the cab driver's union and the steelworkers' union before he became enough of a success in his chosen field to become a member of the musicians' union. • In 2000, psychiatrists at Italy's University of Pisa published their finding that being in love is biochemically indistinguishable from severe obsessive-compulsive disorder. • If you're like 24 percent of the Americans who responded to a recent survey, you believe that people should be allowed to be naked in their own back yards. • What do the lawn sprinkler, rubber shoe heels, portable ironing boards and tire treads have in common? They were all invented by the same man, Elijah McCoy, an AfricanCanadian inventor and engineer. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

It was 8 inches (20.3 cm) in diameter and weighed 1.94 pounds (0.88 kg). The ranch hand who found it said it was larger but had melted some by the time it was checked by authorities. .• A natural occurrence of a totally different kind was when a “cute” purple octopus was found by a team of Canadian and Spanish researchers off the coast of Newfoundland in July 2010. It is one of 11 possible new species found in the deep-sea expedition. They used a remotely operated vehicle that journeyed to a maximum depth of 9,800 feet (3000 m). Doesn’t it make WHERE 2010 (continued): you wonderDID what elseGO? is undiscovered?

• For the superstitious, 2010 should have been a good year, with only one Friday the 13th, which occurred in August. Friggatriskaidekaphobia and paraskavedekatriaphobia both mean “fear of Friday the 13th.” Hopefully you don’t suffer from this malady – mainly because the long words are extremely hard to pronounce!
