World Environment Day, celebrated every year on June 5, was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 1972. The day is intended to stimulate awareness of issues affecting the environment and enhance political attention and public action. This week, Tidbits honors the day and goes green. • Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1921 for his groundbreaking experiments with solar power and photo voltaics.

• Can “going green” create jobs? Absolutely. As an example, just look at Germany, where the solar industry has generated 10,000 jobs in production, distribution and installation.

• A world record was set in 1990 when a solar-powered aircraft flew across the United States in 21 stages, using absolutely no fuel at all. • Water is the most commonly used renewable energy resource, providing enough power to meet the needs of 28.3 million people. • Although pollutant levels in the early 1900s were two to five times higher than current levels, forests in the Pacific Northwest are dying twice as fast as they were 17 years ago, and scientists blame warming temperatures, according to a new study. • If you drink a can of beer after work and then toss it in the recycling bin, that one (aluminum) can saves enough energy to watch television for three hours after dinner. Of course, you’d save even more energy if you went out for a walk or read a good used book after dinner. Think of the paper and trees saved. • Yes, we can: There are over 80 billion soda cans used each year. Yes, that’s billion. And that’s just soda. Now, can you see the importance of recycling aluminum? continued on page 2!

World Environment Day (continued) • If you were to add up the amount of separate pieces of paper trash that each American throws away per year, it would be approximately 13,000 pieces of paper. A large percentage of this is packaging and junk mail. • An amazing fact: If you were to lay out all the paper that American businesses generate in just one day, that paper would be enough to circle the Earth about 20 times. • When a glass bottle is recycled, the process considerably cuts back on the air and water pollution that occurs when you create the bottle from raw materials. • Do it online? If American households went online to view and pay their bills, it would save over 16 million trees. Find out what services and options are available to you. • Recycle your newspapers whenever you can. Each year, 10 million tons (9.1 million kg) of newspaper are not recycled, but thrown away in landfills. If we changed this habit altogether, we could save up to 75 million trees. • Public transportation produces 95 percent less carbon monoxide (CO), 90 percent less volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and about half as much carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen oxide (NOx), per passenger mile as private vehicles. Energy-related carbon dioxide emissions represent about 82 percent of the total U.S. humanmade greenhouse emissions. • Forty-nine percent of America’s electricity comes from burning coal. Sixty three percent of fossil fuel electricity comes from burning coal, 29 percent from burning natural gas and 9 percent from burning oil. • The combustion of fossil fuels supplies over 40 percent of the electricity the entire world uses. • It takes approximately 394 pounds (179 kg) of coal to keep a single 100-watt incandescent light bulb burning for 12 hours each day for one year. • For every 1 percent decrease in the Earth’s ozone layer, there is a 2 percent increase in the incidence of skin cancer in humans.

• Currently, conventional incandescent lamps are in the process of being replaced with more energy-efficient lamps. Fluorescent light has been used for many years in overhead fluorescent tubes without causing any problems. Nevertheless, certain “light sensitive” citizens’ associations have voiced concerns about c o m p a c t fluorescent lamps.
Issue #1140 • Did you know that Americans throw away approximately 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour? Meeting the nation’s demand for bottled water requires more than 1.5 million barrels of oil annually. That is enough to fuel an estimated 100,000 cars for a year. • How it all began: From the conservation movement at the beginning of the 20h century, there has been a steady progression. In the sixties the great concern centered on chemical pesticides. • Many believe the ecological movement was born with author Rachel Carson’s classic book, “Silent Spring.” • The ecology movement’s growth has been stimulated by a widespread acknowledgment of an ecological crisis on our planet.

If we could utilize just 5 percent of the geothermal “wealth” we have here in the Unites States, we could supply the electricity needs for 260 million Americans. America’s population at the moment is right around 300 million. • If laundromats in the United States switched to front-loading machines, we could save a whole lot of water. If just one load of wash per day was washed by a front loader rather than a top-loading machine, we’d save 1 million gallons (3.8 million liters) of water a day. • America’s refrigerators use about 7 percent of the nation’s total electricity consumption, the output of about 25 large power plants.

• On May 31, 1859, the famous tower clock known as Big Ben, located atop the 320-foot-high St. Stephen’s Tower, rings out over the Houses of Parliament in Westminster, London, for the first time. Its famously accurate timekeeping is regulated by a stack of coins placed on the clock’s huge pendulum. • On June 2, 1924, President Calvin Coolidge signs the Indian Citizen Act, granting automatic American citizenship to Native Americans born in the United States. The law attempted to finalize Indian assimilation into white culture while permitting Indians to retain some of their tribal traditions. • On June 6, 1933, eager motorists park their automobiles on the grounds of Park-In Theaters in Camden, N.J., the first-ever drivein movie theater. Advertising it as entertainment for the whole family, Richard Hollingshead charged 25 cents per car and 25 cents per person, with no group paying more than one dollar. • On June 4, 1942, the Battle of Midway begins. During the four-day sea-and-air battle, the outnumbered U.S. Pacific Fleet succeeded in destroying four Japanese aircraft carriers while losing only one of its own, the Yorktown. • On June 3, 1956, in Santa Cruz, Calif., city authorities announced a total ban on rock and roll at public gatherings, calling the music “Detrimental to both the health and morals of our youth and community.” Two weeks later, Time magazine reported on similar bans enacted in Asbury Park, N.J., and San Antonio, Texas. • On June 5, 1968, Senator Robert Kennedy is shot at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles after winning the California presidential primary. Kennedy was shot several times by 22-year-old Palestinian Sirhan Sirhan. He died a day later. • On June 1, 1980, CNN (Cable News Network), the world’s first 24-hour television news network, makes its debut. The network signed on at 6 p.m. EST from its headquarters in Atlanta, with a lead story about the attempted assassination of civilrights leader Vernon Jordan.

FOR WEEK OF May 31, 2010
ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You might not like some people’s idea of a surprise. But you could be in for a pleasant shock when someone finally sends a reply to a request you made so long ago that you almost forgot about it. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) It’s a time to expect the unexpected. So don’t be surprised if a decision that just recently seemed final suddenly opens up and leaves you with another chance to make an important choice. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Taking a different tack on a work project might rankle some colleagues. But the positive results of your innovative course soon speak for themselves. Celebrate with a fun-filled weekend. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Meeting new associates can be awkward, even if you’re in a high positive phase right now. Best advice: Make them feel comfortable, and you’ll soon forget your own discomfort. LEO (July 23 to August 22) It’s a good time for you social Lions to blow-dry your manes, polish your claws and look like the Fabulous Felines you are as you make new friends and influence the influential. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Expectations run especially high this week, and you should feel confident in your abilities to take advantage of what might be offered. A colleague has some advice you might find helpful. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A recent flurry of activity leaves you in need of a little breathing space, and you’d be wise to take it. Close family members should have an explanation about an emergency situation that just passed. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) An insensitive act makes a difficult situation more so. But try not to waste either your physical or emotional energies in anger. Move on and let others fill the clod in on the facts of life. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) It’s a good time to look into that training program or college course you’ve been considering. You might have a good place to use those sharpened skills sooner rather than later. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) Education dominates much of your aspect during this week. You might want to start checking out those summer session courses that could help advance your career plans. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Progress often comes in fits and starts. But at least you’re moving straight ahead with no backsliding. You should soon be able to pick up the pace and reach your goals in due time. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Be wary of a deal that gives confusing answers to your questions. Remember: It’s always risky swimming in unknown waters, so you need all the help you can get to stay on course. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a way of bringing people together and creating close friendships wherever you go. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

Dental Insurance Before you buy dental insurance, consider whether it will actually save you any money. Investigate a number of types of policies before you buy. Call your own dentist office to see what plans it accepts. Be sure the insurance company you’re considering has your dentist on its list. If you know you need work done, ask your dentist for a list and compare it to what the insurance will cover for each procedure. Consider the type of policy you want: • Traditional -- You pay a monthly premium and have a percentage of your costs covered. • Direct Reimbursement -- You pick any dentist and pay for the work, and the insurance company sends you a check. • In-Network -- You’re required to go to a dentist on the plan’s list, but you might not be charged extra fees because the policy dictates which dentist you see and how much the dentist can charge. Consider the level of coverage the plan offers: • Basic: Extractions, which might or might not cover root canals. • Major: Implants and bridges likely won’t be covered unless specified in the policy. • Preventive: Exams and cleaning are stan-

dard, but extra services such a fluoride might not be covered. Read the fine print: • Policies don’t always agree on what is basic or major work. If you have a missing tooth and want to consider getting a bridge, it’s possible the plan won’t cover it because the tooth wasn’t in place when the policy started. • Is there a waiting period? Is it for all procedures, or just the more expensive ones such as crowns? • Is there a yearly maximum? Most companies cut off benefits at $1,000 per year. • Existing conditions? Chances are the policy won’t cover those. • Are emergencies covered? Be sure to do the math. Every year the deductible will reset. Add up your monthly premiums plus the deductible. That’s the amount you’ll pay on a yearly basis. If you don’t have a dentist, check the policy information for dentists in your area. Then call to find out which offices are taking new patients. Ask to be sure they’re still accepting that insurance, as not all of them will take a new patient. Find more information on the American Dental Association’s website: www.ada.org.

A wife had become so domineering that her husband insisted she see a psychiatrist. The wife consented, and the couple went to a doctor. The husband waited outside, and when his spouse emerged after the hourlong session, he asked, “Did you make any progress?”“Not much,” she replied. “It took me fifty minutes to convince that man that his couch would look better against the wall.”

• It was British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli who made the following observation: “My idea of an agreeable person is a person who agrees with me.” • Hunters, take note: The largest deer that ever lived was the Irish elk, which became extinct more than 7,000 years ago. Though it stood a remarkable 7 feet tall at the shoulders, the creature’s most amazing characteristic was its antlers, which could stretch 12 feet from tip to tip and weigh up to 90 pounds. Imagine that rack hanging on your living-room wall! • If you are a parent, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that among the under-18 crowd, strawberries are the favorite fruit, followed closely by grapes and bananas. • Google Earth, the virtual geographic information program, isn’t just a fun thing to fiddle with on your computer; it can be a law-enforcement tool, too. Just last year, police in Switzerland noticed a cornfield that looked a bit odd; it turns out that the farmer was raising marijuana and had hidden the two-acre plot within his corn fields. • The koala bear, that cute and cuddly icon of Down Under, never drinks water. The critters get all the water they need from the food they eat. • Medical experts say that coconut water has the same pH and electrolyte balance as human blood. In fact, during World War II, doctors who were running low on supplies used coconut water in plasma transfusions. • In 2002, in an effort to be more environmentally friendly, Ireland decided to try to reduce the use of plastic grocery bags by levying a 15-cent tax on each one. It worked, too -- use of the bags dropped by 95 percent. (c) 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.
