Tidbits brings you a

January Jumble

by Kathy Wolfe Say “Welcome” to the new year by learning a little about some January commemorations you might not be familiar with. This week, Tidbits looks a few lesser-known celebrations. • January 7 is Harlem Globetrotters’ Day, remembering the first game the famous basketball team played on that day in 1927. They traveled 48 miles west from their Chicago home to play a game in Hinckley, Illinois. The team was the brainstorm of Chicago businessman Abe Saperstein during a time when only whites were permitted to play professional basketball. The team had nothing to do with the New York City borough of Harlem. Abe chose the name to emphasize the team’s ethnic heritage. The Globetrotters didn’t even play their first game in Harlem until the late 1960s! Since their creation, they have played in front of

chief surgeon of an English hospital. In addition, he invented a slide rule that enables a person to perform exponential and root calculations. His first Thesaurus was published when Roget was 73, and was entitled Thesaurus of English Words and Phrases Classified and Arranged so as to Facilitate the Expression of Ideas and Assist in Literary Composition. His work had 28 printings during his lifetime, and after his death, was carried on by his son and later by his grandson.

• January 10 is Save the Eagles Day, reminding us of the importance of protecting the world’s 70 species of eagles from extinction. Eagles can be found on every continent except Antarctica. America’s national emblem, the bald eagle, inhabits every state except Hawaii. This enormous bird can have a wing span of up to 8 feet (2.5 m) and weigh 15 lbs. (6.8 kg). Surprisingly, it is monogamous and mates for its entire 15- to 20-year lifespan. • January 11 is officially Amelia Earhart Day, but not because that was the day she disappeared. It marks the date she became the first person to fly solo across the Pacific from Honolulu to Oakland, California in 1935. It was two years later on June 1 that she and her navigator Fred Noonan departed Miami on a 29,000-mile (46,671 km) journey, attempting to fly around the world. They were just 7,000 miles (11,265 km) from completing the goal when radio transmission ceased and the two were never seen again. ������������

• Who hasn’t used that handy little tool, the Thesaurus? It’s the volume that lists synonyms for words, enabling a writer to avoid using the same word in articles, speeches, and papers. January 18th is officially Thesaurus Day, celebrating the 1779 birthday of the author of Roget’s Thesaurus, Peter Roget. He was a British physician who struggled with depression and used the compiling of lists of words to combat it. The brilliant Roget graduated with a medical degree at only 19, and served as

• January 25 is observed as World Leprosy Day, intended to educate people on this disease that damages the nerves that control the muscles in the hands and feet. Left untreated, it can lead to the inability to use the hands, paralysis of the feet, loss of sensation in the extremities, and even blindness. Every day, 620 people are diagnosed with leprosy – that’s one every two minutes! Also called Hansen’s Disease, leprosy is contagious, spread by droplets from the nose and mouth by coughing and sneezing. India has more leprosy than any other country. The good news in this century is that it is curable, and deformities can frequently be remedied with surgery. • Seeing Eye Dogs, who help their sight-impaired owners to safely navigate in their surroundings, are honored on January 29. The top three breeds used as guide dogs today are Labradors, Golden Retrievers, and German Shepherds. A dog undergoes specialized training for four to six months to make sure they have the necessary qualifications to be a seeing eye dog.

CHRISTA MCAULIFFE January 28 has been set aside as Christa McAuliffe Day, commemorating America’s first Teacher in Space. Tidbits honors this inspiring woman who lost her life in the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster on January 28, 1986. • Originally from Massachusetts, Christa moved to New Hampshire when her husband accepted a new job there. She settled into a teaching position at Concord High School, with classes in social studies, American History, and economics. Her teaching included an emphasis on the “impact of ordinary people on history,” a concept that was to play out in her own life. • The “race to space” began when Christa was just a young child, and she became enthralled with Project Mercury and the Apollo programs. On February 21, 1962, the day after John Glenn’s historic orbit of the Earth aboard Friendship 7, she told a high school friend, “Do you realize that someday people will be going to the Moon? Maybe even taking a bus, and I want to do that!”

• Happy Cable Car Day on January 17! This year marks the 142nd anniversary of the first cable car railway patent bestowed upon Andrew Smith Hallidie. He was inspired to invent the cable car after witnessing an accident with a horse-drawn streetcar on San Francisco’s steep streets. The cable car made its first appearance in that city in 1873. The cars move up and down San Francisco’s inclines at a speed of about 9 miles per hour (14.5 km/hr).

• Make yourself a peanut butter sandwich on January 24 in honor of National Peanut Butter Day. Every year Americans eat enough of this spread to make more than 10 billion sandwiches, spending about $800 million annually. First introduced in 1904 at the St. Louis World’s Fair, peanut butter is now eaten in 90% of American households. Today’s laws state that in order to be labeled as “peanut butter,” the product must be at least 90% peanuts.

• The name Margaret Gorman is probably not familiar to most folks, but she is notable as the first Miss America, winner of the pageant in 1920. Originally initiated as a local Atlantic City festival in an attempt to extend the tourism season past Labor Day, the event was not known as the Miss America Pageant until 1922. Miss America Day is now in January each year, with the most recent pageant held on January 12, 2013. It was broadcast for the first time in 1954, with a record-breaking 27 million viewers, and remains the fourth longest-running live event in television history. The state of California has had the most winners with six, while 21 states, including Washington, Idaho, Maine, Nevada, and Montana, have never had a Miss America hail from their state.

• Sharpen your pencils! It’s time for National Handwriting Day on January 23, a day established by the Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association to promote the use of pens, pencils, and writing paper. This day was chosen because it is the birthday of John Hancock, whose stylish and flamboyant signature is easily recognizable on the Declaration of Independence. Even his name has become synonymous with the word “signature,” as we ask folks to “put their John Hancock” on important documents. This member of the Continental Congress and later governor of Massachusetts was the very first person to sign the Declaration.

Walk-ins WELCOME!

• When Christa was two years into her Concord tenure, President Ronald Reagan announced the Teacher in Space Project, a NASA program designed to send the first civilian into space.


www.TrustTidbits.com NASA’s goal was to find an “ordinary person,” an educator to communicate with students while aboard a spacecraft. More than 11,000 teachers applied for the position. Christa mailed her application form at the last minute, writing: “I watched the Space Age being born, and I would like to participate.” • The pool of applicants was narrowed down to 114, then down to 10, and on July 19, 1985, Christa McAuliffe’s name was announced as NASA’s choice. The agency liked her “infectious enthusiasm,” and declared her “the most broad-based, best-balanced person of the 10.” She and the first alternate, Barbara Morgan, each took a one-year leave of absence from their schools, with NASA covering their salaries. The Challenger mission was scheduled for early 1986. • It was intended that Christa would teach two 15-minute classes to the nation’s schoolchildren from space, broadcast via closed-circuit television. The first was to have been “The Ultimate Field Trip,” including an introduction of the other six crew members and their duties, a tour of the spacecraft with a description of the equipment, and a summary of living aboard the craft. Her second lesson was to summarize the benefits of space travel, entitled “Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going, Why.” She was also set to conduct science experiments in magnetism, Newton’s laws, and chromatography. • Just 73 seconds after takeoff, the Challenger exploded over the Atlantic Ocean off the Florida coast. The entire craft disintegrated, due to the failure of a rubber O-ring seal in the right solid rocket booster, which caused a leak in the joint it was meant to seal. This allowed pressurized hot gas to reach the external fuel tank. Christa, aged 37, left behind her husband, a nine-year-old son and a six-year-old daughter. • It’s estimated that 85% of Americans heard of the disaster within one hour of its occurrence. • Twelve years after Christa’s death, her backup Barbara Morgan, a former Idaho schoolteacher, was chosen by NASA as an astronaut. She flew aboard the Challenger’s replacement, the Endeavor, to the International Space Station in 2007.

Jesse Schwindt, University Bulldogs, Loveland Ford Prep Player of the Week The University Bulldogs went into Gilcrest (Valley) with a 6-3 record but 0-1 in the Patriot League. Coach of the Bulldogs, Dave Crespin, told Agfinity’s Sports Day show hosts that the one thing his team needed to do in the second half of the season was become more consistent. The Bulldogs jumped out to an early 20-8 lead in the 1st and it appeared that they would run away with this one but Coach Voehringer and his Vikings kept fighting and kept this one close throughout thanks in part to a 12-5 second quarter.

Minnesota couple decided to vacation to Florida during the winter. They planned to stay at the very same hotel where they spent their honeymoon 20 years earlier. Because of hectic schedules, it was difficult to coordinate their travel schedules. So, the husband left Minnesota and flew to Florida on Thursday. His wife would fly down the following day.

I know you’re surprised to hear from me. They have computers here now and you are allowed to send e-mails to your loved ones. I’ve just arrived and have been checked in. I see that everything has been prepared for your arrival tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing you then! Hope your journey is not as uneventful as mine was. P.S. Sure is hot down here!

A Riddle for the Day

The husband checked into the hotel. There was a computer in his room, so he decided to send an e-mail to his wife. However, he accidentally left out one letter in her e-mail address, and without realizing his error, he sent the e-mail.

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a big one.

Meanwhile.....somewhere in Houston, a widow had just returned home from her husband’s funeral. He was a minister of many years who was called home to glory following a sudden heart attack. The widow decided to check her e-mail, expecting messages from relatives and friends. After reading the first message, she fainted.

Clinton uses his all the time.

When I went to Starbucks for coffee they lied. It wasn’t Starbucks - it was four bucks.

The widow’s son rushed into the room, found his mother on the floor, and saw the computer screen which read:

Did you ever wonder what disease cured ham had before it was cured?

Michael J. Fox has a small one. Madonna doesn’t have one. The Pope has one but doesn’t use it. Mickey Mouse has an unusual one. Liberace never used his on women. Jerry Seinfeld is very, very proud of his. Cher claims that she took on 3. We never saw Lucy use Desi’s. What is it? Answer below!

EXPENSIVE ARENAS

With the footbal season beginning to wind down, you might be interest in what spectators have been paying for tickets at some of the stadiums. Tidbits presents the most expensive, the least expensive, and a glance at Super Bowl ticket prices. • The price tag for game attendance is based on the Fan Cost Index, a figure derived by the Team Marketing Report. This figure represents the price for a family of four to attend an NFL game, including four tickets at the average price, two small beers, four small sodas, four hot dogs, parking, two game programs, and two adult caps. The average league-wide figure is $427.42. • The fifth most-expensive stadium, Chicago Bears’ Soldier Field, carries a Fan Cost Index of $557.18. Home of the Bears since 1971, it holds 61,500 fans, and has an average single ticket price of $101.55. Fans can have a beer for $8 and a hot dog for $5. The team has a season ticket renewal rate of 98%, and every game has sold out for the last 27 years.

year-old arena. If money is a little tight, spectators can purchase a $29 “party pass” that allows a standing-room view of the game from platforms on the end zone and corners. • MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands Sports Complex in East Rutherford, New Jersey, is the only NFL stadium shared by two teams. The most expensive stadium ever built and the largest in the NFL in terms of permanent seating capacity (82,500), it is home to both the New York Jets and the New York Giants. The cost index differs between the two teams, with the Giants the fourth-highest in the league at $592.26 and a whopping $464.75 for a premium seating ticket. The most expensive tickets in the league belong to the Jets with the index at $628.90. If you’d like to reserve two tickets for the Jets in the premium club area, you can do so for a five-year period for $24,340.

MetLife Sadium

• The third most expensive stadium belongs to the New England Patriots, with an index of $597.66, and a single ticket average of $117.84. Gillette Stadium also offers “premium tickets,” which include oversize plush seats, fancier food and beverages, flat screen TV’s, and access to the field post-game. Want a season ticket? There’s a waiting list. • The Dallas Cowboys play in the second most expensive stadium, with a cost index of $613.80. The $6 price tag on sodas is the highest in the league, and fans fork over $75 for parking at the three-

• How about the cheapest prices in the league? That honor belongs to EverBank Field, home of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Although it’s the fifth-largest stadium in the NFL, its Fan Cost Index is just $316.50, and an average ticket price of $58.90. It’s close to the bottom in terms of attendance. • The average ticket price for last year’s Super Bowl was $2,900. Tickets for the 2013 game are slated to be much higher, with the cheapest in the $2,500 range and the most expensive over $9,500. This will be the 7th year for the contest at New Orleans’ Superdome, the largest fixed-dome structure in the world, which has a seating capacity exceeding 76,000. New York’s MetLife Stadium is scheduled for the 2014 matchup.

• It was German-born theoretical physicist (and sometime philosopher) Albert Einstein who made the following sage observation: “An empty stomach is not a good political adviser.” • According to research conducted at Rutgers University, graduate students who are studying business are more likely to cheat than students in any other field of study. • You’ve almost certainly heard of Supreme Court Associate Justice Thurgood Marshall, the first black American to serve as such. You might not know, though, that he was known to call a court recess at 1 p.m. so he could watch the soap opera “Days of Our Lives.” • Cheese has been around for a long time, and it can last longer than you may think. In Ireland 25 years ago, a hunk of cheese was discovered that dated back 1,700 years -- and it was still edible. • If you’re like the average person, the hair on your head takes two to three months to grow 1 inch. • At the 1904 World’s Fair in Saint Louis, it was particularly hot. An ice-cream vendor was doing so much business that he ran out of the cups in which he was serving the ice cream. He looked to the other foodsellers to see if they had any spare containers that would be useful, but he had no luck. Finally, desperate not to lose any more business, he bought some waffles from a nearby vendor and wrapped one around each scoop of ice cream as he sold it. The result was even more popular than ice-cream in a cup, and thus the ice cream cone was born. • The most common surname in Germany is Schultz. *** Thought for the Day: “Life is hard. After all, it kills you.” -- Katharine Hepburn (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

How to Kill a Good Relationship Why in heaven’s name you and I will go out of our way to destroy a perfectly good relationship is beyond me. However, we’ve all done it and when it was over with we wondered why? How? What happened? Here are seven ways we go about killing a good relationship. See if they don’t ring true for you. 1. Violate. The quickest way to end a good relationship is to violate that relationship with heinous words or deeds. Adultery, abuse (physical or emotional), lies, gossip, or other evil acts create an almost instant disconnect between people. The result is an atmosphere of anger, distrust, and resentment that makes healing complicated if not impossible. 2. Frustrate. If one party in a relationship wants to keep petty wars going they do so by frustrating every attempt to bring harmony. They sabotage every act of kindness with cruel words or deeds designed to discourage the one wanting accord. The games of sabotage are often subtle and can even be designed to provide the “frustrator” (if I may invent a word) with cover and deniability. 3. Depreciate. Another way to kill a good relationship is to depreciate the other party, that is, to diminish or humiliate them, often with the simple act of neglect. This form of relationship killing is often done in the “two’s company, three’s a crowd” situation where one person is ostracized. It is more frequently done right in your own living room or bedroom. When a wife refuses to talk to her husband or a husband touches the shoulder of his wife and feels only ice. 4. Isolate. This way of killing a good relationship is the opposite of the previous one. Here an individual in a relationship decides to separate themselves from other people often as a defense mechanism. Look around your office, there is probably one or two people who are always alone. They don’t par-

ticipate in water-cooler discussions, they don’t attend office parties, when they arrive they don’t talk to anyone, and when the day is done they tell no one good-by. This mechanism is frequently used by teen-agers who retreat to their room and refuse to participate meaningfully in any family event. 5. Dominate. This method of relationship ruining is perhaps the most common: it is when one person must have his/her own way all the time. A friend of mine used to work for an employer who was a tyrant. He gave lip service to collaboration in order to solve a corporate problem, but in the end everyone had to do things the way he wanted. Tyrannical, domineering behavior also finds its way into the most intimate family relationships. 6. Retaliate. One of the most dangerous ways people deal with deteriorating relationships is that they retaliate. Watch the next episode of Law & Order and it will probably be about someone who did not get out of a relationship what they thought they deserved, so they retaliated. “You hurt me, now I’m going to make you hurt.” 7. Obstinate. What I’m talking about here is the individual who refuses to change. “That’s just the way I am, there’s nothing I can do about it,” would be an excuse of an obstinate person. He/she will blame everything on their DNA, the way their mother treated them, or some other excuse for the simple fact they do not want to take responsibility for their own stubbornness and make changes necessary to create loving, cooperative relationships. Your first reaction to this list might be to find people around you who fit the different categories. My hope would be that you would instead read the list and ask, “Which of these applies to me?” Then change. ©2013 Ronald Ross
