by Patricia L. Cook This issue of Tidbits is not just about nosey neighbors or co-workers (but they will be mentioned…shhh! Don’t tell them!), but also about noses that are superior in sensing aromas. • There have been a number of television shows and movies that have featured nosey neighbors. Whether putting a glass against the wall to listen to voices in the next room or peeping through a keyhole, there are times when curiosity gets the best of a person and they just want to know what is going on! Examples of these “snoopy” tricks can be found in videos of I Love Lucy, Friends, Bewitched. • One of the main characters of the show, Bewitched, was Gladys Kravitz. She was constantly spying on her interesting neighbor, Samantha, who happened to be a witch. When the show was on television in the 1960s and had quite a following, many would refer to their nosey neighbors as having the “Gladys Kravitz syndrome!”

• In case you are wondering, nosey can be spelled with or without the “e,” according to thefreedictionary.com. It is an adjective meaning: “offensively curious or inquisitive.” While people can be nosey in the inquisitive way, many animals have superior smelling abilities.

NOSEY (continued):

• One such beast with an extraordinary sense of smell is the bear. A bear’s brain is only about a third of the size of a human brain but his nose is approximately five times larger; the nasal mucous membrane in a bear’s head is 100 times larger than the membrane in a human! Their nostrils have folds that house thousands of smell receptors making their sense of smell better than bloodhounds and possibly the best of any land animal. Bears use their sense of smell to find mates, identify their cubs, find food, and detect and avoid dangerous situations involving other bears or humans.

• In California, a black bear was seen traveling upwind in a straight line for three miles to find a dead deer. Some studies have shown that a bear’s sense of smell is actually seven times better than a bloodhound’s. • Speaking of bloodhounds; they are possibly the best detectives known! Their sense of smell is so good that they beat the best man-made odor detecting machines. Even after several days of a person’s trail going through streets, shops and more, a bloodhound can still follow the scent. Some dogs have been trained to detect types of cancer with greater accuracy than very expensive screening equipment.

• Detecting scents underwater is what a shark’s brain does well. Approximately two-thirds of a shark’s brain is focused on smell. They can detect a tiny drop of blood from more than a mile (1.6 km) away. They can even detect nervousness in other fish, which helps them find and destroy prey very easily.

• In many instances humans have better recall of smells than visual recall. One study found a 65% accuracy for smell after a year, while visual recall of photos was below 50% after only three months.

• Rats can be trained, like dogs, to use their extraordinary sense of smell to help humans in life-saving ways, one of which is to detect land mines. Rats can smell in stereo, with each of their nostrils working independently!

• The advantage to using rats instead of dogs for this type of defense work is not just because of dogs’ reputation as “man’s best friend” and the close relationships handlers form with dogs but also because they are cheaper to keep and train.

• Giant African pouched rats are used for mine detection by APOPO, an acronym from the Dutch language which means Anti=Persoonsmijnen Ontmijnende Product Ontwikkeling. In case you don’t speak Dutch, it is translated AntiPersonnel Landmines Detection Product Development. APOPO conducts research and “develops and disseminates detection rats technology for humanitarian purposes.” It is a company registered in Belgium with headquarters in Tanzania. Their rats are called HeroRATs.

• Three countries that have been helped with mine detection rats are Tanzania, Mozambique

DVD Reviews

“KILLING THEM SOFTLY”: It’s not very smart to steal from mobsters, as the protagonists of this gritty tale appear destined to learn the hard way. Brad Pitt reunites with Andrew Dominik, his writer and director on “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” to play an underworld enforcer sent after the novice criminals who robbed a mob-related card game. Two veterans of celebrated gangster sagas, James Gandolfini and Ray Liotta, also star along with Richard Jenkins and Sam Shepard. DVD extras: “makingof” documentary; deleted scenes. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)

“PARENTAL GUIDANCE”: Veteran talents Billy Crystal and Bette Midler are teamed in this mildly amusing, family-friendly comedy that’s very much about family ... several generations of one. The stars play grandparents enlisted to mind their daughter’s (Marisa Tomei) youngsters, prompting the elders to bring their traditional methods of child rearing into play while caring for the very modern kids. Bailee Madison (“Just Go With It”) and Tom Everett Scott (“That Thing You Do!”) are featured. DVD extras: audio commentary by Crystal and director Andy Fickman. Deleted scenes. *** “SHAKESPEARE UNCOVERED”: Many of the Bard’s classics get new attention and appreciation from six talents - Ethan Hawke, Jeremy Irons, Derek Jacobi, theater director Trevor Nunn, Joely Richardson and David Tennant - as they host individual episodes of this recently televised PBS miniseries. Others including Helen Mirren, Jude Law, Patrick Stewart and Ben Whishaw (“Skyfall”) also contribute their thoughts on such legendary and muchperformed works as “Hamlet,” “Macbeth,” “The Tempest” and “Henry V.” *** “THE COLLECTION”: This sequel to the hugely unpleasant thriller “The Collector” is just as gruesome, which would have to be expected. Josh Stewart returns as the lone escapee from a sadistic serial killer, enlisted to save a wealthy man’s (Christopher McDonald) daughter (Emma Fitzpatrick), who has fallen prey to the felon. That means making his way safely through a deserted hotel that now houses a variety of highly lethal traps. DVD extras: theatrical trailer; five “making-of” documentaries; audio commentary by director and co-writer Marcus Dunstan and co-writer Patrick Melton; deleted and alternate scenes. ** “TO THE ARCTIC”: Originally exhibited in the IMAX format, this visit to one of the most forbidding yet beautiful regions of Earth boasts narration by Meryl Streep. The documentary offers expectedly majestic views of snow and ice formations, but it also offers a narrative in following a polar bear and her twin cubs as they try to survive and thrive in the bitter atmosphere. DVD extras: three “making-of” documentaries. ***

Horoscope

ARIES (March 21-April 19): You won’t need to participate in a prizefight to profit. In the upcoming week, you may find that you are wedged between a rock and hard place whenever you try to make a change. Wait for better timing. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): There is a tendency to cling tightly to a past victory and wear it like a badge of accomplishment. By the end of the week, you could learn that putting forth extra efforts may be both advisable and beneficial. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Know where you are. Start the week off by balancing the checkbook because you may need plenty of cash on hand for something unexpected. If you don’t need extra cash this week, you will be all set. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Remain calm in the face of the storm. The week ahead might be a poor time to initiate a major project with a partner or make a commitment. Someone could change their mind or act unpredictably. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): Open your heart as well as your mind to new ways of looking at the world during the week ahead. “Your way or the highway” is not a motto that will win you friends or help you attain your objectives. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Put your eye for perfection to good use this week. Organize files, balance checkbooks, straighten out closets, buff the furniture or wax the car. Regular maintenance keeps things running smoothly. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): Follow your heart, but don’t forget to take along your head. Relationships entail extra responsibilities and financial matters may need your attention. This week, you may be called upon to do your duty. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): It is up to you to decide whether to run your week or let your week run you. You will gain the most by sticking to routines and getting your desk organized. Wait to follow a lead or try something new. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Prove your loyalty. Work at your own steady pace and carefully complete any project requiring dogged precision. You may be attracted to unusual forms of entertainment in the week ahead. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Rule the roost by using rationality. Make sure you have all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed in the week ahead. Fight off an impulse to gamble with your money or argue with a special someone. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): One weed doesn’t ruin a flowerbed. Don’t let minor problems or passing disputes destroy your appreciation for the good things in life during the week ahead. Investigate new technologies. PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20): There are some silences that say nothing; however, leave nothing important unsaid. In the upcoming week you might not find a chance to let down your hair, but you have a loyal someone rooting for your success.

SMELL THE ROSES

• According to “The Ultimate Rose Bush.” There are three groups of roses: wild roses, old garden roses recognized and established before 1867, and hybrid or modern roses. Hybrids are created when two roses are cultivated to create a new variety or breed. Most new hybrids are bred to create great scents or for blooms that are longer lasting. • With the popularity of rose scents, it is no wonder that an idiom for slowing down in life was spoken many years ago. Rose gardens are great places to relax and reflect. • The White House Rose Garden is quite possibly the most photographed rose garden in the world. President John F. Kennedy started the tradition of holding ceremonies and media events in the garden close to the Oval Office in Washington, D.C. Roses were first planted there in 1913. In 1987, President Ronald Reagan signed a proclamation naming the rose as the official National Floral Emblem of America.

When you stop to “smell the roses,” you are taking the time to enjoy life. This term, an idiom, is one which many of us should stop to consider in this age where information is available instantly with the push of a few computer keys or a smartphone application and we stay too busy and too connected! • Roses have been popular for their beauty and scents for thousands of years. Historical evidence has shown that cultivation of roses most likely started in China.

Adoptables Maxx, 292223, is a 2 year old neutered male Pitbull cross, and is very active and sweet dog that loves to be around people. He can be a little fearful in new situations at first so he needs to be introduced to new situations slowly. Maxx needs a quieter environment and gentle handling. He enjoys going for walks and is very curious about the world. He has never been around children or cats before and does become easily excited and tends to jump up. Maxx will have to get use to being left alone slowly as he does become anxious. If you think you are a good match for Maxx, please contact the shelter. Cherry, 292009, is a 2 year old spayed female Cocker Spaniel cross, who came to the shelter as a stray and when no one came looking for her she was put up for adoption. She required some medical treatment and now is all healthy and ready to go to her new home. Cherry was diagnosed with a luxating patella, but there are many different ways to treat it depending on the grade; you would have to work with your vet for the best option. She is a very active dog that will need lots of exercise. She is also not fully house trained and would benefit from formal obedience classes. If you are interest in Cherry, please contact the shelter.

Shoulder Pain?

Pet Bits

Q: My son, a New England Patriots fan, has three pet crabs. We are (Denver) Broncos fans. Will the crabs get along with one another if they have different team logos painted on their shells? A: I may not be paid as much as Tom Brady or Tim Tebow, but I love my job more because of questions like yours. Painting crabs’ shells with sports team logos is a craze, but not a healthy one. “Crab shells need to breath, and the paint interferes,” says Carol Frischmann, author of “Animal Planet: Hermit Crabs” (TFH Publications, Neptune City, NJ, 2011; $8.95). “Crabs seem to require the natural characteristics of a shell, and painting it makes a difference which may be harmful to the crab inside,” adds Frischmann, of Portland, OR. Divide your aquarium into two sections - a Patriots end and a Broncos end. You could even put up mini goalposts (use chopsticks), then see which “team” scores the most crab touchdowns.

and Thailand. When the land is cleared of landmines, not only does it make an area safer for those living nearby but it also makes the land accessible for use and many times opens up water sources nearby as well.

• HeroRATs are also trained for tubercolsis detection. Read about these super smellers at: http://apopo.org/home.php?lang=en.

• On to a prettier animal – moths can sniff out a future mate in flight 6-7 miles (9-11 km) away. The feathery antennae allow this fine searching ability. • Snakes use their tongues in a flicking action not just to scare humans and animals, but to smell with. Snakes do have nostrils and nasal cavities but don’t use them to smell. • Most birds have keen eyesight but their sense of

smell is lacking. The albatross is an exception. This large bird hovers above the water, usually an ocean, looking for its next meal. An albatross has an extra-large nose on top of its beak. The oversized honker helps an albatross detect food even in the dark.

• People with oversized noses tend to have many critics. Some celebrities have actually become famous in part because of their noses. Many refer to their noses as a proboscis, a facetious use of the word that is defined as a trunk of an elephant or a long flexible snout, usually referring to animals.

• Jimmy Durante was a very popular entertainer known for his jokes about his nose and a silly song he called Inka Dinka Do he recorded in 1934. A great piano player, jazz musician, band leader and one of the early stars of television, his nickname was Schnozzola, a name he coined himself for his large nose.

• Victoria, British Columbia, at the southern tip of Vancouver Island, on the western coast of Canada, is known as the City of Gardens. Not only does Victoria boast the presence of the beautiful Butchart Gardens, a National Historic Site, but it is also home to Hatley Park. Both have exquisite rose gardens. • Butchart Gardens has 55 acres (22 ha) of flowers with a rose garden among them. The rose garden was first planted in 1922. • Hatley Park, with landscaping design dating back to 1912, is home to Royal Roads University. The 565 acre (228 ha) estate has three showcase areas with a beautiful rose garden as one of the three. In the early days of the estate 100 gardeners were employed to tend the grounds. • The largest rose garden in Asia is in the “garden city” of Chandigarh, India. An annual rose festival is held at Dr. Zakir Hussain Rose Garden where more than 2,000 varieties of roses and 50,000 rose trees bloom annually. It covers 30 acres (12 ha). • Whether you live near or far from roses and rose gardens, take some time to appreciate the sights and smells of beauty around you!

The final table of the recent Borgata Winter Poker Open in Atlantic City, N.J., was one of the most entertaining I’ve seen during my time with the World Poker Tour. It wasn’t because the table was packed with big-name pros playing up or melting down for the cameras. In fact, the table was the opposite, made up of lesser-known players conducting themselves very seriously and in near silence throughout. The chip leader was an unknown young professional named Andy Hwang. He came to the final table with 9.5 million in chips, but by the time play was four-handed, he was down to 4.5 million and in third place. Hwang had lost many of his chips to an online player on his left named Matt Haugen. In 2010, Haugen was the winningest player in multi-table Andy Hwang’s tournaments on Full Tilt Poker — and Full Tilt was at the hand: peak of its tournament volume that year. Haugen had played an excellent final table, which he began in third but now was leading. He had been trading small pots back and forth with Hwang, and it was clear that there was now enough history between the two for things to escalate. In a series of three consecutive hands, Hwang launched himself back into the chip lead. Matt Haugen’s First, Hwang opened the 100,000-200,000 blinds for a hand: raise to 450,000 with A♦ 2♠, first to act, leading to a call from Haugen with 7♠ 5♠ on the button. The player in the big blind, James Anderson, also made the call, and the players went to the flop three-handed. The flop came J♥ 4♠ 3♦, and when Anderson checked, Hwang bet 625,000. Haugen called, both for the value of his draw and with the intention of taking the pot Flop: away on later streets if Hwang checked to him. Anderson folded, and the two rivals saw the turn, which came 9♦. Hwang moved all in for 3.2 million with just ace high and a gutshot straight draw, leading to a quick fold from Haugen. The very next hand, Anderson raised the butTurn: ton with J♠ 8♦ against Hwang in the big blind. With A♦ 5♥, Hwang reraised to 850,000, a play he had been making often against Anderson up to that point. Anderson had been folding to Hwang’s small reraises, but this time he made a four-bet of just over 1.4 million. Hwang went all in, and Anderson was forced to fold. In the hand after that, Hwang raised from the small blind with Q♦ 10♦, and Haugen called from the big blind with 10♣ 4♣. Both River: players started the hand with around 6.5 million, and when the flop came Q♣ J♠ 2♣, Hwang put out a bet of 450,000. Haugen raised to 900,000, and Hwang made a surprising reraise with his top pair to 2.25 million. Haugen needed a moment to think, and when he was done he announced that he was all in. Hwang called immediately, showing that he fully believed he had the best hand and was willing to put his tournament life at stake. The board ran out 6♥ A♦, and in three hands Hwang had gone from 4.5 million to over 13 million, giving him a chip lead he would never relinquish. Hwang had realized that Haugen would adjust to his recent aggression and would probably be willing to get all the money in with several draw combinations that were well behind Hwang’s top pair. The three of us providing commentary in the WPT booth could hardly believe how fast the money got into the middle, but there was never any doubt in Andy Hwang’s mind.

The survey is made available by Natural Resources Canada online at www.nrcan. gc.ca.

Between 2000 and 2009, there was also a significant change in the composition of the light vehicle fleet. The share of the ‘light truck’ category (vans, sport utility vehicles [SUVs] and pickup trucks) increased substantially relative to the share of ‘cars.’ Most notably, the number of SUVs almost doubled and its share of the ‘light vehicle fleet’ increased from 6.9 per cent to 12.8 per cent. Meanwhile, the share of cars decreased from 60.5 per cent to 55.4 per cent. Vehicle weight and engine power are important factors governing an automobile’s fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emissions. We can all save money and decrease pollution by increasing our awareness of technology options and by selecting vehicles that meet our everyday needs.
