FEET FACTS (continued):

• High heels prevent the ankles from absorbing their normal share of the force of walking, shunting it instead to the toes. A three-inch heel puts more than seven times the pressure on the forefoot than a flat shoe. This promotes many foot ailments such as bunions, hammer toes, and neuroma, which is a painful thickening of the nerve that connects the toes. A study of 3,000 surgeries performed on the forefoot found that 87% of the bunion surgeries, 81% of hammer toe surgeries, and 89% of the neuroma surgeries were done on women’s feet. • High heels also affect the knees. A study published in the British medical journal The Lancet showed that high heels cause strain and pressure on the joint that joins the kneecap and the underlying thigh bone. The rotational forces on the inner part of the knee joint were 23 percent higher when women participating in the study walked in heels than when they walked barefoot.

• Surprisingly, the big toe has only two bones, while the rest of the toes have three. Although nearly every bone in the body has an official name, one exception is the toe bones. They are known only as “metatarsal digits #1-5.” A fourth-year medical student at Yale decided to undo the injustice by bestowing names on the toes. He called them porcellus fori, porcellus domi, porcellus carnivorus, porcellus nonvoratus, and porcellus plorans domun.

Q: I recently added a 7-month-old kitten to our home of two other cats and two dogs. I rescued the kitten from up in a tree. When I took the new arrival for a checkup, the veterinarian said, “You already have two cats; this is going to have to stop.” He recommended I get rid of the kitten, calling her neurotic. Well, things soon calmed down, and now everyone is fine - except for me. I thought the kitten would benefit from being in our home, receiving her shots and being spayed. But now the vet says I’m a “cat hoarder.” What do you think?

215 Winnipeg St, Penticton smithandcompany@shaw.ca FOOT BINDING

• The only thing worse for feet than high heels was the Chinese practice of foot-binding. A young girl’s feet were wrapped with a bandage ten feet long, strapped in a figure eight around the foot and ankle. It was tightened daily and pulled so taut that the four smallest toes were forced under the foot, breaking the bones. The bones in the arch of the foot would also break, forcing the arch into a sharp inverted “V” shape. Every two weeks the girl was given a pair of shoes two tenths of an inch smaller than the previous pair. Infection often resulted, sometimes followed by gangrene, amputation of toes, and even death. After two years, the ideally deformed foot fit a shoe only four inches long, and would proudly be called “lotus feet” or “lily feet.” Because women with lily feet could only put weight on their heels and couldn’t walk without pain, they hobbled with a mincing step which men considered charming. No one knows why the custom became habit, though it’s conjectured that the practice was popular because it prevented unhappy wives from running away. The practice began with the higher classes in order to prove that the family was so rich that the daughters didn’t need to work. However, a majority of low-class girls had their feet bound anyway in the hopes that they would find a highclass marriage. Only the most poverty-stricken families, whose daughters needed to work in the fields, failed to follow the practice. Beauty in the feet was considered more important that beauty in the face. Foot-binding was the norm in China for a thousand years, until being outlawed in the Revolution of Sun Yat-Sen in 1911. A 1997 study of elderly women in Beijing who had suffered from foot binding in their youth found they tended to fall easily, were often unable to rise from a chair without help, could not squat, and had higher rates of osteoporosis.

▶ The eyes of a moose work independently so it can look in two directions at once.

▶ The town of Forget, Saskatchewan (population 40) was named after the first Lieutenant Governor of Saskatchewan, Amedee Forget. The town’s name is pronounced ‘for-jay.’ ▶ Little Manitou Lake near Saskatoon is fed by underwater springs. Because the lake has no outlet, minerals such as sodium, magnesium, and potassium salts collect in the water. It’s about half the saltiness of the Dead Sea. ▶ Metis means ‘mixed’ in French, and the Metis people were so named because they are a ‘mix’ of European and natives. ▶ A pingo is a dome of earth-covered ice which is shaped like a volcano, found in arctic regions. When ground water freezes, it pushes the ground above it upwards. After centuries of freeze-thaw cycles, a large mound rises. They can reach up to 70 m (230 ft) in height and up to 600 m (2,000 ft) in diameter. The term originated as the Inuvialuktun word for a small hill.

Last Weeks:

A: “If you’re a cat hoarder, what am I?” asks Dr. Kate Knutson, president of AAHA. “I have six cats and two dogs, and I am not a hoarder. And I very much doubt you are, either. ‘Hoarding’ means that you continue to take in animals and can’t stop. What’s more, hoarders don’t offer medical care for the animals, which clearly you are doing.” Knutson, of Bloomington, MN, adds, “You did the right thing to take in this kitten, though when introducing cats or kittens to one another, a very gradual introduction is best.” She adds that if what you say is true, you might consider interviewing a new veterinarian, especially one certified as having a CatFriendly Practice (www.catvets.com).

Research says that chemical fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides used in lawns can be carcinogenic, and increase the presence of harmful nitrates in drinking water wells. An easier healthy alternative is to go organic. To get the lushest lawn possible, research well the varieties of grasses that do well in your climate before planting the lawn, and select the right mixture of grasses. Also figure out the watering time required, so that the roots are strong and less vulnerable to disease. Aerate the lawn so that compacted soil is loosened and water does not run off, but soaks into the ground, this will eliminate the need for chemical fertilizers. Ensure that you do not have a layer of clippings and dead grass more than an inch thick by regular but controlled dethatching, so that you do not get fungus, and the water reaches the roots. Apply organic fertilizer containing bone-meal, fish emulsion and manure early in summer so that the grass gets time to harden for winter. Make sure you mow properly using a sharp blade, because dull blades tear the grass leaving them vulnerable to disease, and do not mow down to less than 3 inches in summer. Let the occasional weed hang in there, because going for bust will mean using chemicals. Use weed control products containing corn gluten meal to prevent weeds. In short, going organic is all about growing wiser, trying to prevent damage before it happens, and growing a healthy lawn without risking family health. www.hobbylawncare.com

Myth: If you’re under 25, shopping around for car insurance is a waste of time. While insurance rates are generally higher for younger drivers because they have a higher accident rate, shopping around can make a huge difference in your monthly payment, especially if you feel your premiums are too high. Your premium will depend on more factors than just your age. Myth: Your employer’s insurance covers you when you use your car for work. Not so. Your auto insurance policy covers your personal use of your car, not any commercial use. So if you drive your own car for your delivery or courier job, your employer’s insurance won’t cover you. You may be getting mileage costs back from your boss, but you don’t want to be surprised at the time of an accident that you don’t have coverage.

(NC)—If you were to ask Canadians what confuses them the most about the insurance industry, they likely would say car insurance. This can be blamed on the many half-truths and misconceptions that are floating around. To help clear up the air, the experts from Desjardins Insurance have answered some of the more common myths.

Prep time: 15 minutes

Servings: 20

Ingredients: • 2 - 15 oz. cans black beans, rinsed • 1 - 17 oz. can whole kernel corn, drained • 2 large tomatoes, chopped • 1 large avocado, diced • 1/2 red onion, chopped • 1/4 C fresh cilantro, chopped Dressing: • 1 T red wine vinegar • 4 T lime juice • 2 T olive oil • 1 t salt • 1/2 t ground pepper Directions: 1. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. 2. Chill if making ahead. by Lynn Yamamoto Dalman http://cookeatshare.com/recipes/cowboy-caviar-439#ixzz2UGA8IsFK

Myth: Your rate will go up if you get into an accident. It depends. If the accident isn’t your fault – for example, if someone hits you from behind while you are at a stop sign – it won’t impact your rates. However, if you do cause an accident, it can directly affect your rates, unless you have accident forgiveness in your policy.

Mother Nature’s Market Threatened Several years ago, friends were visiting from the Coast with their son, who I would guess was about six years old at the time. It was the ‘May Long’ and although not much was growing in the vegetable garden yet, it was prepared for planting. We all laughed when Jared exclaimed “Wow! That’s the biggest playground I’ve ever seen!” Thinking back now, it makes me sad – and more than a little uneasy – to realize this young man had absolutely no idea the food his parents purchased in the supermarket was not manufactured in the store. Now, some twenty-plus years later, it almost seems food IS manufactured. Corn, among other North American staples, has undergone genetic modification in the lab. It is fed to livestock (beeves, pigs and poultry) that we then consume; it is processed and used in literally thousands of food items. * Fortunately (and on a much brighter note) it was thrilling to see how many young people – many with children – attended the Penticton event of the global March Against Monsanto on May 25. My favourite sign at this event was “Take a Leek on Monsanto” on a huge box of leeks being handed out by a local organic farmer. I also enjoyed “All We are Saying … is Give Bees a Chance.” Or a sign carried by several children: “No GMO in my Cereal!” We, the plus 35s, are the folks who got us into this mess. It’s our responsibility to get us OUT! Become educated, vote with your wallet, and teach your children and grandchildren. Education and participation are the keys to avoiding this real threat to our food supply. * Did you know cornmeal, cornstarch, dextrin and maltodextrin, glucose and fructose, invert sugar, corn oil, margarine, shortening, corn syrup are all byproducts of corn – 80% of which is genetically modified?
