• Who hasn’t heard of Bob Barker, long-time host of “The Price is Right”? When World War II broke out, Barker enlisted in the U.S. Navy and trained as a fighter pilot. Post-war, he received a degree in economics. Barker’s first game show gig came along on the last day of 1956, hosting “Truth or Consequences” until 1974. “The Price is Right” started up in 1972, where Barker remained until 2007, collecting 14 Emmy Awards for Outstanding Game Show Host. He also served as the host of the Miss Universe and Miss USA pageants for 20 years, the longest-serving host of those pageants. • Former Marine Corps reservist, bank teller, Denny’s waiter, and stand-up comic Drew Carey took the reins from Bob Barker. Carey had starred in his own comedy show for nine years, starting out with a salary of $60,000 per episode, which was later raised to $300,000, and culminating at $750,000 per episode in the program’s final season.

• Johnny Carson was another World War II veteran-turnedTV host, having served in the U.S. Navy aboard the USS Pennsylvania in the Pacific. As an ensign, he also was quite the amateur boxer with a record of 10-0. Johnny was a born entertainer, having purchased a magician’s kit at age 12, as well becoming adept at card tricks. He made his debut as “The Great Carson” at the local Kiwanis Club at age 14, wearing a cape sewn by his mother. He continued his magic shows into college while he majored in speech and drama. After graduation, he began his career in radio and television at an Omaha, Nebraska station. Carson became the host of “The Tonight Show” in 1962 and held the position until 1992, earning six Emmys over the years. • Long before “Deal or No Deal,” Howie Mandel owned a successful carpet business in Toronto. In his spare time, he did stand-up comedy at a small local comedy club. In 1982, he landed the role of Dr. Wayne Fiscus on television’s Emmy Award-winning medical drama “St. Elsewhere,” a six-yearrun. At a time when he was contemplating quitting show business in 2003, he was offered the job of hosting “Deal,” hosting both the U.S. and Canadian versions. This job was made especially difficult by his struggles with Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and mysophobia, an irrational fear of germs. Mandel did not shake hands with any of the contestants unless he was wearing latex gloves, preferring to do a “fist bump” instead. He has written about his anxiety disorder in his autobiography, Here’s the Deal: Don’t Touch Me, a New York Times bestseller. Text by Tidbits Media, Inc.

Another Stupid Human Trick NEW YORK - Police in “The Big Apple” were puzzled as to why a man with no apparent mental problems would leap to his death from a high-rise building. Ian Honeycutt, 28, of Glenview, Ill., was visiting family. He was not despondent and left no suicide note. When investigators talked to the family, they found out. His aunt didn’t want him smoking in her 9th-floor apartment, so Honeycutt either leaned out a window or would sit on the windowsill. On that particular day, winds were gusting up to 45 mph and Mr. Honeycutt, who weighed less than 100 pounds, was taken for a ride! “The guy’s 90 pounds soaking wet,” a police spokesman said. The death was ruled an accident.

Premonitions? • After having nightmares for ten consecutive nights about a DC-10 crash, Cincinnati office manager David Booth called American Airlines on May 22, 1979. Three days later, 273 people died when an American DC-10 crashed at Chicago. • “Fugitive” star David Jensen had a dream in 1980 where he saw himself being carried out in a coffin after a heart attack. His psychic’s advice to go in for a physical came too late, for two days later Jensen died of a massive heart attack.

INDONESIA - Known as ‘Sea Gypsies’, the Bajau people have wandered the waters of southern Asia for thousands of years, living in house boats and free diving for fish. They’ve long been known for their ability to stay underwater for long periods of time, but until recently, no one really knew how they were able to keep their breath for so long. According to a recently published study from Cambridge University, the Bajau people have 50 percent larger spleens than their land-dwelling neighbours, which plays a key role in how long they can stay underwater. It plays a key part in what’s known as the “human dive response” or “dive reflex”, preferentially distributing oxygen to the brain and Benjamin Franklin devised the first wet suit for divers, heart, and enabling submersion for long periods of time. as well as a primitive version of today’s flippers. As the heart rate slows, blood is directed to the vital organs, and the spleen contracts to push oxygenated red blood cells into the circulation.

Another Case of Zero Tolerance WISCONSIN - To help raise money for the marching band at Germantown High School, parent Ted Stephenson donated $10,000 worth of “Catch’Em, Clean’Em and Cook’Em” fishing kits for the school to sell. When the truck arrived at the school with the 2,200 kits, Principal Janet Barnes refused the shipment because they included filet knives. “It was meant as a good thing,” declared School Board President George Sloan, “but it was an act of extreme dumbness” for Stephenson to donate kits with knives in them. “You can’t have an arsenal on school property, and 2,000 knives is an arsenal.”

RUSSIA – While some countries like Germany are on track to completely phase out nuclear power plants by 2022, Russia’s is building more of them and even making them floatable so they can provide power to remote areas. Looking exactly like what you would imagine a floating power plant to look like, the Akademik Lomonosov is certainly an impressive sight to behold. Its mission, to provide power to in remote regions of Russia’s extreme north and far east, is also quite interesting, as it allows Russia to significantly cut costs by just towing the ship to where it is needed, instead of moving machinery across land. Built by state-controlled nuclear company Rosatom, the Akademik Lomonosov’s 48MW reactor was supposed to be loaded with nuclear fuel right in the Sankt

Petersburg shipyard where it was constructed, but due to safety concerns, it will instead be towed to the Arctic for testing. Russian state media has announced that a second floating nuclear power plant is scheduled for completion in 2019, and has suggested that such ships could be marketed to other countries in the future. Interestingly, the Akademik Lomonosov is not the world’s first floating nuclear power plant. That title belongs to the Sturgis, a US Army barge that was installed in Panama during the Vietnam War. It was fitted with a 10MW nuclear reactor and provided electricity in the area until 1976. It was decontaminated and prepared for long-term storage in 1977, but the dismantling process is still taking place 40 years later, due to the intense radiation levels.

• Before there was Pat Sajak, there was Chuck Woolery, who was the first host of “Wheel of Fortune,” beginning in 1975. It wasn’t Woolery’s intention to host TV shows. After a stint in the U.S. Navy and a job as a salesman for Pillsbury, he headed to Nashville to form the rock band Avant Garde. After a Top 40 hit in 1968, the band recorded five records that went nowhere and became “one-hit wonders.” Merv Griffin chose Woolery to host his new game show “Wheel of Fortune,” where Woolery remained for the next six years. When the show’s ratings skyrocketed, Woolery demanded a salary increase from $65,000 a year to $500,000. His contract was not renewed and Sajak replaced him. After a twoyear hiatus, Woolery began his 11 years of hosting “Love Connection,” while hosting “Scrabble” at the same time. Woolery claims that during the 2,000 episodes of “Love Connection,” 22,000 couples met, resulting in 29 marriages and 15 children. He moved on to “The Dating Game” in 1997 for three seasons, and “Lingo,” which aired from 2002 to 2007. • Canada-born Alex Trebek has been the face of “Jeopardy” since 1984. After obtaining a degree in philosophy from the University of Ottawa, Trebek set out on a career in broadcasting, starting out with the Canadian Broadcasting Company as a newscaster and sportscaster. In 1973, at age 33, he moved to America and became the host of a new game show “The Wizard of Odds.” He moved on to “High Rollers” and “Battlestars” before the revival of “Jeopardy.”

Trebek took on the hosting job of “Clas Concentration” in 1 and “To Tell the Tru in 1991, making his as the first person host three game sh at the same time.

Last kiss? Final hours of loved-up gangsters Bonnie and Clyde before they were gunned down revealed in previously unseen photograph. The picture of the gangsters’ embrace was taken in Joplin shortly before their pursuers got wind of their whereabouts and they had to flee quickly. This affectionate shot of Bonnie and Clyde is believed to be from a film they were unable to develop at the time because they had to flee officers who had discovered they were in the vicinity. Around 107 rounds were said to have been fired at Bonnie and Clyde after they were ambushed in Louisiana - their bodies took 50 bullets each. Their bodies were pulled through the city, where people tried to cut off hair, clothing, fingers and even an ear off of Clyde.

CRY BABIES???

UTAH - Stressed-out students at the University of Utah can now let loose without having to worry about judgmental looks from their peers, thanks to a small ‘cry closet’ that allows them to cry in private. With homework, tough exams and student debt as high as it is these days, college an get pretty stressful, and sometimes you just need to cry before getting back on the horse. But not everyone is comfortable sobbing in public, so the University of Utah decided to help students let loose their emotions by installing a small cry room in the campus library.

Just Batty... The more that is learned about the ecological benefits of bats, the more home gardeners are going out of their way to entice these amazing winged mammals into their neighborhoods. Bats are voracious insect eaters, devouring as many as 600 bugs per hour for 4 to 6 hours a night. They can eat from one-half to threequarters their weight per evening. Bats are also important plant pollinators, particularly in the southwestern U.S.

EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES

• Would you believe me if I told you that there were parachutists (better known now as skydivers) before there were airplanes? Yep, it’s true! In Paris in the year 1900, a man leaped from the Eiffel Tower and made a safe descent using a parachute. It wasn’t until December 17, 1903, that the Wright Brothers made the first controlled, sustained powered flight in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.

POLAND - The tax office in Bydgoszcz, Poland, called in taxpayer Zbigniew Macewicz to discuss irregularities in his payment schedule. When they demanded immediate payment of 80,000 zlotys (US$23,560), Macewicz fell dead of a heart attack. Tax officials then realized they had made a mistake in calculating his payments, and the demand was an error. “I express my deep regret at the taxpayer’s death,” said deputy Finance Minister Stanislaw Stec.
