TIDBITS® STUDIES UP ON

GENIUSES by Kathy Wolfe

The simple definition of genius is someone with “exception intellectual or creative ability.” That can certainly be said of the individuals Tidbits examines this week. • What constitutes a genius IQ level? Intelligence tests are based on one devised by French psychologist Alfred Binet in the 1950s. Average intelligence falls between a score of 85 and 114. It’s estimated that about half of the world’s population has an IQ between 90 and 110. A score of about 160 is considered to be a genius. About 1% of all the people in the world are above 136. It’s believed that Einstein’s IQ was 160, while Mozart’s is estimated at 165. • Considered the world’s first real child prodigy, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart began studying violin and harpsichord at age 3. At 5, he was performing at the University of Salzburg and at Vienna’s Imperial Court the following year. He was 6 when he began composing minuets and other short pieces. His first symphony came along at age 8 and an opera at 12. Mozart received all of his education from his father and never attended a school. He frequently experienced anxiety, loneliness, and sadness, and occasionally exhibited the symptoms of Tourette’s Syndrome and bipolarism. Although he only lived to age 35, he composed more than 600 pieces, including 68 symphonies, 27 piano concertos, horn concertos, violin sonatas, and many volumes of string quartet music. turn the page for more!

VA Deals With Rising Sexual Trauma Cases The U.S. Code is specific about what constitutes military sexual trauma (MST). It covers physical assault of a sexual nature, battery of a sexual nature or sexual harassment. The harassment can be verbal or physical. Those who experience it can be either male or female. The number of reported cases has risen dramatically, and the powers-that-be say it’s because more incidents are being reported. Or could it be that the actual number of assaults has gone up? The answer remains to be seen. The bottom line is this: If you were subjected to sexual assault while on active duty, get help. You owe it to yourself, and whether or not you have another claim with the Department of Veterans Affairs, your treatment and services will be free. Left unaddressed, the past assault can result in future mental-health issues, including PTSD. Go online to www.mentalhealth. va.gov/msthome.asp and click on VA Programs & Services tab. You’ll find information on outpatient care, inpatient care and screening. Look also for the link to benefits related to military sexual trauma. If you didn’t report the assault at the time and wonder how you’ll prove it, get treatment and file anyway. The VA has learned how to spot the “markers” for assault. Maybe you put in for a transfer, or maybe you sought tests for sexually transmitted diseases. That’s evidence. Maybe you talked to the chaplain or a friend. Even if your only sign is panic attacks that appeared for no apparent reason, that’s still a marker that the VA will pay attention to. Every regional office has MST specialists. Women Veterans Coordinators are available to help file claims as well. To find your regional office, call 1-800-8271000. If you know someone who experienced military sexual assault, give him or her this information.

• Albert Einstein was responsible for “the world’s most famous equation,” E=mc2, the formula for mass-energy equivalence. Yet this German-born physicist failed his first college entrance exam, passing only the math and science sections, forcing him to attend a secondary school before retaking and passing the test a year later. Einstein’s 1921 Nobel Prize in Physics was awarded for his discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect. He came to America on a visit in 1933, and made the decision to stay when new German laws prohibited him from teaching at any university there. He renounced his German citizenship, took a teaching position at Princeton, and became a U.S. citizen in 1940. Regarding the topic of genius, he once said, “The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.” • Regarded as one of the greatest scientists of all times, Isaac Newton almost became a farmer. His mother urged him to follow in his late father’s footsteps on the family farm, but this genius disliked the profession intensely. He attended Cambridge University, studying mathematics, physics, and astronomy. We’re most familiar with his theory of gravitation, developed after watching an apple fall from a tree. Most folks have also heard of his law of inertia that states that an object at rest tends to stay at rest and an object in motion tends to stay in motion. Another familiar Newton law is that for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Newton was also responsible for the first practical reflecting telescope. Modern-day psychologists believe it’s quite possible that this genius had Asperger Syndrome, an autism disorder characterized by severe difficulties in social situations.

• Although we think of Alexander Graham Bell as the inventor of the telephone, he had 17 other patents, including hydrofoil boats, aerial vehicles, and selenium cells. Bell was 29 years old and working on an improvement to the telegraph when he invented the telephone. As a young boy, he had come up with a talking doll that said, “Mama,” and at age 12, built a device for the process of dehusking wheat. Following the shooting of President James Garfield in 1881, Bell quickly devised an electromagnetic apparatus to try to locate the bullet lodged in Garfield’s abdomen. In 1906, this genius with a vision said, “The day will come when the man at the telephone will be able to see the distant person to whom he is speaking.” • Robert “Bobby” Fischer was an American chess master, who at age 14, won the World Chess Championship, the youngest winner of the title. At 15, he was the youngest international grandmaster of all time. This son of a biophysicist father and a teacher, then nurse, then physician mother, Bobby learned chess when he was six years old, using the instructions from a chess set bought at a candy store. As a genius with an IQ of 187, he dropped out of high school at age 16 to dedicate himself to the game. His famous 1972 world championship match against the USSR’s Boris Spassky put Fischer in the public eye. After that match, he became a recluse and didn’t play a competitive game in public for nearly 20 years. turn the page for more! Answers on Page 4

• A modern-day genius, 30-year-old Michael Kearney received his first bachelor’s degree at age 10, and had earned three more by age 21, followed by a doctorate in chemistry at 22. Kearney spoke his first words at four months, and at six months, surprised his pediatrician by saying, “I have a left ear infection.” By 10 months, he was reading, and graduated from high school at age six. • When Edison was developing the phonograph, it wasn’t as a form of entertainment. He was more interested in its educational and business possibilities – teaching elocution and diction, recordings for the blind, dictation, and recording a teacher’s instructions. During the 1880s, this brilliant individual filed for a new patent on the average of every five days, more than 1,300 items over the course of his creative life. Because he had dyslexia, Edison spent just three months in public school before his mother chose to deal with his learning disability by homeschooling him. Although we mainly remember his “big” inventions, such as the stock ticker, voting machine, motion picture camera and projector, phonograph, and incandescent light bulbs, Edison was also the inventor of waxed paper! As to being a genius, Edison had this to say, “Genius is one percent inspiration and 99% perspiration.” • Kim Ung-Yong’s IQ is approximately 210, perhaps the highest in the world. By his third birthday, he was reading Japanese, Korean, German, and English, and was enrolled as a physics student at South Korea’s Hanyang University. At 8, he was invited by NASA to study in the U.S. and work for the organization. After 10 years with NASA, he returned to Korea and obtained his doctorate in civil engineering.

Give Nervous Nelly Some Time, Space DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My friend adopted a little mixed terrier that he named “Jessie.” She must have come from an abusive situation because she trembles terribly, barks and sometimes pees whenever anyone but my friend tries to interact with her. I always thought I could get along with any dog, but Jessie is terrified of me. What can I do to make friends? -Casey in Sioux City, Iowa DEAR CASEY: Sometimes it can be extremely difficult to make friends with other people’s pets. Temperament and the dog or cat’s early environment can play big roles in how they interact with others outside their perceived family unit. Jessie might not have come from an abusive situation; it could be that she wasn’t socialized correctly. And if she was just dumped at the shelter (or who knows where else), she could have been traumatized by being abandoned. It’s a sad and tough situation, but it sounds like your friend is giving her great care, and they have bonded. Don’t get frustrated if Jessie doesn’t take to you immediately. Always give her a friendly “hello” when you come in. If she backs away or gets nervous when you reach out to pat her, pull back calmly. She eventually may come to you to sniff your hand or your ankle -- stay calm and say nice, soothing words. If she sniffs your hand without backing away, try gently running your hand along her jawline to her ear, and scratch her ear gently. Don’t try to pat the top of her head, and don’t press your face into hers -- many dogs react negatively to these motions. It could be weeks or months before Jessie allows you to pet her, or maybe never. But give her time and space to feel confident and safe enough to let you in as well.

THE SOLUTION TO HOMELESSNESS

Homelessness is not a problem – it’s a multitude of problems that knock against each other in an infinite variety of combinations, and each of those problems changes over time with the rise and fall of the economy, the gentrification of neighborhoods, the emergence and availability of illegal drugs, and the overloading of legal and social services, to name just a few factors. So, perhaps surprisingly, we suggest you forget about the problem. Think about the people. Paul spent 37 years in prison and had no idea how to live on the outside. Ed was an Army veteran with PTSD who retreated to the woods to get away from society. Roxanne and Amanda were escaping domestic violence situations. Jeff was a long-time addict. 19-year-old Chase’s family couldn’t handle having him at home any more. Each individual who comes through the doors of the Union Gospel Mission shelters has a story and a unique combination of factors that brought them to this point of crisis. We must see homeless people as people first - not projects, not burdens, not lazy bums - but people. Unless we realize from the get-go that we are much more alike than we are different, we can't really make much of an impact. The hard truth is, because homelessness is about people, there is no single, wide-sweeping solution. Building more low-income housing isn’t going to solve it. Handing out money, food and other necessities isn’t going to solve it. A better educational system isn’t going to solve it. All of those things might

be part of the solution, but real help starts with relationship. And relationship is a time-consuming, often inefficient, person-by-person proposition. Homelessness actually has a lot in common with every other problem of the human condition - it’s a heart issue. It may be a hard heart, a broken heart, a heart wrapped in layers of addiction, fear and protective bandages, but at the core of every homeless person is a heart in need of healing. And our God is in the heart restoration business. That’s why the gospel is at the core of everything we do in this ministry. There is no solution, no healing, without uniongospelmission.org the work of Jesus Christ in our hearts.

WILLIAM SHATNER

Tidbits beams up the facts on this famous Canadian, most widely remembered as Captain James T. Kirk.

The Best Times to Buy There are patterns to saving money. Retailers discount merchandise at certain times of the year, and it only seems illogical until you consider it from their point of view: Merchants want to get rid of things that didn’t sell, and sell you things they perceive you’re going to want. Sometimes those make for an odd combination of sales merchandise. Consumer Reports magazine has come up with a list of the best times to buy a variety of items: • Gas grills are hot when the weather turns cold -- October, November and December -- just when you’re not likely to be using one. Stores want to clear out the old models before the new ones arrive in the spring. • You’d think GPS would be a summer travel and geocaching item, but no, merchants push those in November and December. Take the opportunity to buy for holiday gifts or for yourself for travel. • Stock up on your summer swimwear at the same time you buy discounted home-gym equipment -- at the beginning of the year. If you’re not brave enough to try on swimsuits in the winter, wait until June and July when they’ll be on sale again. • August is a funny month. You’ll be able to find deals on air conditioners (that you could have used all summer) as well as the snow blowers you’ll need in the winter. At the same time, outdoor furniture will be discounted, just in time for fall -- and having to store it away over the winter. • Look for toys from November through January, and winter sports gear in March. • Some items do go on sale just when you need them: Digital cameras appear in March, in time for spring and summer photography. Lawn mowers come out in April, along with spring clothing. There are other ways to save money, and they also follow patterns. • When it comes to summer camp for your child, you need to start considering options in the middle of winter. Slots in the best camps will go quickly, as will the assistance money if you need help paying. • For carpeting and furniture, wait until after the year-end holidays. • Shop at thrift stores just as everyone is doing spring cleaning. For specific items, go online and search for what you want with “best time to buy” added in to your search parameters.

• Born in Montreal, Quebec in 1931, William Shatner got his start as a child performer on Canadian Broadcasting’s radio programs. While earning his Bachelor of Commerce degree from Montreal’s McGill University, Shatner spent his summers performing with the Royal Mount Theater Company, training as a Shakespearean actor. After graduation, he joined the Canadian National Repertory Theatre in Ottawa, acting regularly in the Shakespearean Stratford Festival of Canada in Stratford, Ontario. • A far cry from his Shakespearean roots, Shatner was cast as Ranger Bob on the Canadian Howdy Doody Show in 1954. Although his first movie role was the part of “a crook” in the 1951 Canadian film, The Butler’s Night Off, Shatner’s first big role was at age 26 in 1958’s The Brothers Karamazov, along with Yul Brynner. The early ‘60s were filled with lowerbudget movies and TV guest spots for Shatner. • It was Shatner’s casting as Captain James Tiberius Kirk, commander of the starship U.S.S. Enterprise in 1966 that sealed his fame. Even though Star Trek was cancelled after just 79 episodes over three seasons due to low Nielsen ratings, the series became a cult classic with thousands of followers. The short-lived program generated five additional TV series, 12 movies, and books, video games, toys, and action figures. • After Star Trek’s cancellation, life became tough for Shatner. He had been typecast as Captain Kirk and offers for roles were few. His wife divorced him, taking much of his money with her, and Shatner lost his home. He lived in a pickup truck camper, hoping for better roles to come along. He guest-starred on a number of game shows and did some TV commercials to make ends meet. • In 1979, Paramount Pictures chose to produce a Star Trek movie, reuniting the original cast. The sequel, The Wrath of Khan, came along in 1982, followed by six more films, ending with 1994’s Star Trek Generations with the death of Kirk. • In the midst of filming the Star Trek movies, Shatner landed the role of police sergeant T. J. Hooker, a popular television series from 1982 to 1986. The reality show Rescue 911 followed in 1989, a seven-year stint. At age 73, he joined the cast of the legal drama The Practice in 1997, a series that spun off into Boston Legal, starring as the eccentric attorney Denny Crane, winning two Emmys for the role. Shatner has also been the spokesman for Priceline for 15 years, as well as writing several Star Trek novels, including The Ashes of Eden and Avenger. • Shatner and his co-star Leonard “Spock” Nimoy both suffer from tinnitus, which is a ringing in the ears. The hearing of both men was damaged while filming a 1967 episode of Star Trek when they stood too close to a special effects explosion. • Although he retains his Canadian citizenship, the 82-year-old Shatner, an avid horseman, and his wife own a 360-acre horse farm near Lexington, Kentucky. He has been honored with both a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and a maple leaf on the Canadian Walk of Fame.

• Back in 1917, B.C. Forbes was a financial columnist for the Hearst newspaper franchise. Along with Walter Drey, the general manager of the Magazine of Wall Street, he founded Forbes magazine, a financial publication containing investing and market topics. Today his grandson Malcolm Forbes, Jr. is CEO and Editor-in Chief of Forbes. This periodical is famous for its miscellaneous lists, such as the 400 Richest Americans, the World’s Billionaires, and America’s Most Trustworthy Companies. According to Forbes, Bill Gates has been the richest American for the past 20 consecutive years, with a current estimated worth of $72 billion. • On April 14, 1865, Actor John Wilkes Booth entered a private box at Ford’s Theater in Washington, D.C. and shot President Abraham Lincoln with a .44-caliber single shot derringer as Lincoln watched a performance of Our American Cousin. Booth was a familiar face around the theater and a personal friend of the owner John T. Ford. The structure was used as an office after the assassination for 28 years until the interior collapsed, killing 22 clerks and injuring 68 others. The damage was repaired and the building remodeled into a government warehouse, used until 1931, when it became a Lincoln museum. In 1968, a complete restoration of the historic theater was finished, and it reopened as a live performance venue. The site receives about a million visitors annually. • The old English word “forsooth” simply means “indeed,” “in truth,” “certainly.” • The colorless, flammable, odorous chemical known as formaldehyde is used in building materials, including pressed-wood products, along with many household products. It’s also found in cigarette smoke, some glues, permanent press fabrics, fungicides, and disinfectants, and is a common medical lab preservative and widely used at mortuaries. The International Agency for Research on Cancer has classified formaldehyde as a known human carcinogen, and studies suggest there is a connection between exposure and leukemia. Exposure can be especially irritating to the eyes, nose, and throat, causing coughing and inflammation of the respiratory tract. • When gold was discovered in California at Sutter’s Mill in 1848, thousands flocked to the area seeking treasure. Most people headed there in 1849, giving them the nickname the FortyNiners. That year, San Francisco’s population jumped from 800 to more than 50,000. California’s head count increased by 86,000 people in two years. The folks who struck it rich weren’t the miners, but rather those who created businesses to serve the prospectors. Two wellknown companies that came out of the era are Wells Fargo and Levi Strauss. • Back in 1912, Westinghouse employees Daniel O’Conor and Herbert Faber teamed up on an invention to be used in electrical insulation. It was made of wrapped woven fabric coated with a thermosetting resin, which was flattened and cured in a press. They intended their product to replace mica in the insulation, and dubbed their invention Formica, because it was a substitute for mica. Today we most often think of Formica as a heat-resistant laminate with melamine resin for use on kitchen countertops.

Books as Brain Food Now here’s a “novel” way to increase our brain function. It doesn’t involve getting more exercise or eating certain foods. It doesn’t include doing puzzles. We only need to grab a book and start flipping pages. Emory University did a study that showed how there are “quantifiable changes” in brain activity when participants read a book. Granted it was a bit more regimented than just grabbing your favorite author’s latest bestseller. In the study, participants were given a baseline brain scan each day for a few days. Then they were given the thriller “Pompeii” by Robert Harris with instructions to read 30 pages a night. Each morning they were given another brain scan. After the book was finished (about nine days), they were given more scans to see how the brain reacted. Researchers were able to track which portions of the book the participants were reading and correlate them to the brain scan images. Here’s what they learned: During reading, and for days afterward, there were significant activity increases in the parts of the brain associated with story comprehension, as well as processing language. According to the study, the reading has to be fiction to get these brain connectivity changes, something with a narrative that describes events unfolding, a story we can identify with. Here’s my thinking: While researchers don’t know yet how long these brain changes last after reading a novel, it’s at least five days. Perhaps we should spend some time in 2014 rereading the novels that had an impact on us, as well as new narrative fiction and a few of the old classics. The reference librarian is sure to be a good source for book suggestions.
