A drunk in a bar let loose with a big burp. "How dare you burp before my wife!" exclaimed a man sitting near him. "Sorry," said the drunk. "I didn't realize it was her turn!"



by Janet Spencer On January 24, 1935, the first beer in cans was placed on sale in Richmond, Virginia. In honor of that event, come along with Tidbits as we take a look at beer! A CRUCIAL INVENTION • Ermal Cleon Fraze, born in 1913, grew up to found a tool and die company in the mid 1940s called Reliable Tool and Manufacturing Company. He invented a wide variety of products for clients including General Electric, Ford, and even NASA. But his most famous invention came as a result of a picnic in 1959. • Ermal had brought plenty of beer to the picnic, but he had forgotten the can opener, which, at that time, was the only way to crack open a cold one. He was forced to resort to opening the cans using the bumper of his car. “There oughta be a better way,” he thought to himself. • Several months later, he couldn’t sleep, so he got up to spend a few hours puttering in his workshop. The result of his tinkering was the first pop-top pull-tab can. He received a patent for it in 1963, selling the invention to Alcoa. The first customer to use the new pull-tab can was the Pittsburgh Brewing Company, makers of Iron City Beer. By 1975, 75% of U.S. breweries were using them. Turn the page for more

TO PEE OR NOT TO PEE • Drinking beer makes the drinker urinate a lot— much more than drinking an equal amount of water or juice. The number of trips a beer drinker makes to the bathroom has nothing to do with the amount of liquid consumed. It has to do with something called anti-diuretic hormone (ADH) produced by the hypothalamus in the brain. ADH regulates urine production and the amount of water in the bloodstream, maintaining the balance between water and salt in the tissues. Alcohol inhibits the production of ADH, so the kidneys don’t receive the normal signals from the brain. They go on drawing water out of the bloodstream at a constant rate because they are not told to stop. This dehydrates the body. That’s why thirst is a main symptom of a hangover. A good way to diminish a hangover is to drink a couple quarts of water before going to bed. Coffee is not a good thing to drink after getting drunk because caffeine is also an ADH inhibitor, and coffee messes up the signals to the kidneys too. Coffee has never sobered anybody up. Drunkenness is caused by unprocessed alcohol in the blood, and nothing can remove it but time. Alcohol plus coffee equals a wide-awake drunk. Soda Fizzes; Beer Foams • Why does soda fizz whereas beer foams? It’s caused by the chemical processes that occur during fermentation. Fizzing and foaming both involve carbon dioxide rising to the surface, but soda pop is not fermented as beer is. Brewer’s yeast feeds upon the sugar in the ‘wort’ which is the sugary substance in malt, which comes from barley. The yeast gives off carbon dioxide as a by-product. During fermentation, that carbon dioxide dissolves into the liquid. When the pressure is released when a can or bottle is opened, the carbon dioxide rises to the surface. The chemical reactions that have occurred between the carbon dioxide and the proteins in the wort make the bubbles last much longer than the bubbles in pop, champagne, or cider.

BEER FACTS • Frothingslosh was a brand of beer made by Iron City Brewing of Pittsburgh exclusively at Christmas time. The advertisements breathlessly exclaimed, “Oh, my gosh, it’s Frothingslosh!” It was billed as the “pale, stale ale with the foam on the bottom.” How did they get the foam on the bottom? They pasted the label on upsidedown. • A little cobalt is absolutely necessary for good health, but a lot can kill. Brewers in Quebec and Omaha at one time added cobalt salts to their beer because it gave the brew a better head. When beer drinkers began dropping dead, the practice was halted. • When escape artist Houdini attempted to escape from a large can filled with beer, the stunt nearly ended in disaster when he was overcome by the carbon dioxide. The alert stage manager noted the lack of sounds coming from inside the can and released him in the nick of time. • One kind of male Australian beetle always seeks out the largest female to mate with. An Australian beer manufacturer unwittingly made their beer bottles in the shape and color of the female beetle, albeit at a fantastically large size. When it was brought to the company’s attention that thousands of male beetles were trying to mate with discarded beer bottles, they redesigned the bottle. • Linseed oil soaked rags burst into flames spontaneously late one night in a restaurant in Alameda, California. The heat from the fire popped the tops on the bottles of ten cases of beer. The suds doused the flames. • In the course of the 1949 British Open, Harry Bradshaw drove a ball into a beer bottle by accident. The ball broke the bottle’s neck and ended up inside the bottom of the bottle. Rather than risk a penalty, Bradshaw decided to play it where it lay. He smashed the bottle with his club. The bottle traveled about 30 feet (9 m).

WORD ORIGINS • The focal point of Irish social life is the pub. This is a term derived from ‘public house.’ At pubs, beer is served by the pint or the quart, which are abbreviated ‘P’ and ‘Q’ on the patron’s bar tab. If a bar owner was concerned that someone was running up too much of a bill, he might tell the person to ‘mind your Ps and Qs.’ A tab was often called a ‘scot’ and if the owner lost the scot or forgot to write the drink down on the scot, the drinker got off ‘scot-free.’ • In the 1830s a temperance society in Michigan was campaigning against the evils of drink. They offered their members two pledges: one was a pledge of moderate drinking, the other was a pledge of total abstinence. On the membership rolls those who had made pledges were identified as either “O.P.” for those who had taken the “Old Pledge” to drink moderately, or “T-Total” for those who embraced total abstinence. This group eventually became known as Teetotalers. • In sailing, a sheet is a line that attaches to the lower corner of a sail. When you pull the sheet in, the sail is tight against the wind and the ship sails quickly. When you let the sheet out, the sail sags and flaps in the wind and the ship comes to a standstill. A ship that has “three sheets to the wind” is floating helplessly in the water, just as a person who has had too many drinks is helpless. DUI FACTS • Drunk drivers kill 25,000 people a year, compared to 20,000 killed by homicide in the U.S. annually. They injure more people than do criminals who commit assault with a deadly weapon, and cause more property damage than all forgers, burglars, and robbers combined. • Nearly half of the 45,000 U.S. highway deaths in a year are alcohol-related.

Rowling’s post-”Harry Potter” project (slated for 2015) is a screenplay, “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” for Warner Brothers. It’s planned as the first in a series of films about the titular Hogwarts textbook and the adventures of the author. As for her three “Harry Potter” stars: Daniel Radcliff had “Kill Your Darlings” (which grossed only $928,051) and is awaiting release of the Canadian film “Horns” and the British film “The F Word” in 2014. He’s currently playing Igor, the faithful assistant to Dr. Frankenstein (James McAvoy) in a new “Frankenstein” film, and has “Tokyo Vice” and “Gold,” in which he’ll play Olympic gold medalist Sebastian Coe, slated for 2015 release. Emma Watson did “This Is the End” and “The Bling Thing,” due out in 2013, and stars as Ila, adopted daughter of “Noah” (Russell Crowe), along with Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Logan Lerman and Douglas Booth, hitting screens in March.

*** Not long ago, Raquel Welch appeared with Joan Rivers on “Fashion Police.” She said she was 73 years old, yet looked as beautiful and sexy as she did when she was a sex symbol in the 1960s and ‘70s. Welch has been married four times, has two children, made more than 40 films, was last seen on “CSI: Miami” in 2012 and last October in Lifetime’s “House of Versace” TV film, with Gina Gershon. She starred with some of biggest names in film, including Elvis Presley in “Roustabout” (1964), Doris Raquel Welch Day in “Do Not Disturb” (1965), Stephen Boyd in “Fantastic Voyage” (1966), James Stewart and Dean Martin in “Bandolaro” (1968), Robert Wagner in “The Biggest Bundle of Them All” (1968), Frank Sinatra in “Lady in Cement” (1968), Burt Reynolds in “100 Rifles” (1969), Peter Sellers and Ringo Starr in “The Magic Christian” (1969), Mae West and Farrah Fawcett in “Myra Breckinridge” (1970) and Richard Burton in “Bluebeard” (1972). At the height of her fame, I encountered her at a Hollywood soiree. She walked up to me and asked, “Are you Tony Rizzo?” I said, “Yes.” She extended her hand, “Hi, I’m Raquel Welch.” In shock I said, “Yes I know.” She replied, “I pay clipping services a fortune, and I’ve read several things you’ve written praising my work, I just wanted to thank you, in person.” As you know from reading my column, I’m never at a loss for words, but she sure did hush my mouth with that!

Recommended Reading: “Promote Yourself: The New Rules for Career Success” by Dan Schawbel (St. Martin’s Press, $24.99) Reviewed by Molly Ford Whether it’s your first job or your fifth, the rules for getting ahead in the workplace are changing quickly with the advent of social media and the rise of more frequent job changes. If you want to stay ahead of the game and stand out in your company, “Promote Yourself” shares ways to flourish by emphasizing the importance of personal branding in the new work environment. A core tenant of the book is that how colleagues perceive you is just as important as the actual work you are producing.

To further back up these insights, loads of data and interviews with professionals are included. Real-world examples of how professionals applied the book’s tips to their careers, especially across different life stages and in different industries, round out the narrative of how important personal branding is to having a successful career. What kind of work achievements should you be sharing with your boss and team, and how do you share those achievements while still being likable and not “bragging”? How do you a build a network of contacts, both in and outside of work? Can you be an entrepreneur while still working at a company? Author Dan Schawbel, a columnist at both Time and Forbes, answers these questions and many more. If you want to be the most respected and best-liked person in the office, this is your read.

CLYDESDALES • Clydesdale is a district in Scotland (named after the Clyde River) which is now best known for breeding a particular type of draft horse. Bred for pulling heavy wagons or sturdy plows, the horses are known for being strong, patient, and docile.

• Originally, they were short and stocky animals. By 1940, breeders were working hard to increase the physical size of Clydesdales, turning the breed from a compact horse to a large stately horse that looked more impressive in parades. • Conscripted for use during World War I, their numbers tumbled drastically. Increasing mechanization led to further decline in the population. Soon they were rare. By the mid1970s, there were fewer than 900 breeding Clydesdale mares in all of the United Kingdom. Today, their numbers have increased, although there are still fewer than 20,000 registered worldwide. • Of the approximately 4,000 Clydesdales that currently live in the U.S. and Canada, about 250 belong to Anheuser-Busch, making it one of the largest herds of Clydesdales in the world. They are bred in Missouri not far from the AnheuserBusch brewery, and turn out about 15 new foals per year. Three different teams of ten horses each are constantly on tour, attending parades, fairs, and the Superbowl.

• The breed began with a strain of Flemish horses that were imported to Scotland and bred to local mares. The term ‘Clydesdale’ was first used in 1826, and the first official registry of Clydesdales appeared in 1877. Between 1885 and 1945, about 20,000 were exported to other countries, especially Australia and New Zealand.

• When Adolphus Busch married Lilly Anheuser in 1861, he married into a family-owned brewery. He jumped into the business. His suggestions turned the St. Louis factory into a showplace. • When he discovered a new recipe for beer which involved fermenting the brew twice, he bought the rights and named the new beer after the Czech town where he discovered the recipe: Budweis. After studying the work of Louis Pasteur, Adolphus became the first to pasteurize beer, which allowed it to be shipped without loss of quality. • When he died in 1913, his brewery was one of the foremost in the country. His son August Busch took over, but then disaster struck: Prohibition. For years the brewery hung in there, squeaking by on sales of yeast and a nonalcoholic beverage. • When Prohibition was repealed in 1933, a celebration was called for. August’s son (August Jr.) had recently purchased a team of magnificant Clydesdales as a gift for his father, and they garnered so much attention that August Sr. knew he could spin a major media spectacle out of them. • He had a gleaming beer wagon and six magnificent Clydesdale horses delivered from St. Louis to New York City where they paraded up Fifth Avenue with 10,000 people following. At the very moment Prohibition was repealed, employees handed a legal beer to Governor Al Smith, who had constantly lobbied for repeal of Prohibition. The brewery got pages of free publicity from this spectacle, and has been associated with Clydesdales ever since. • Anheuser-Busch is the largest brewing company in the U.S., providing about half of all beer consumed in the country.
