The Neatest Little Paper Ever Read ® Tidbits takes a look back at...

The 1970s

��������������������

���������������������

by Kathy Wolfe What do you remember most about the 1970s? It was a decade of progress, celebration and political scandal. Let’s take a leap back in time and remember these monumental events. • The twin towers of New York City’s World Trade Center were completed in 1972 and became the world’s tallest buildings, surpassing the Empire State Building, the record-holder for the previous 40 years. The towers didn’t hold on to the honor for very long, as Chicago’s Sears Tower outdid them in 1973. • America celebrated its 200th birthday in 1976, commemorating the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Many of the festivities were centered in Philadelphia, the nation’s first capital and home of the Liberty Bell and Independence Hall. The city’s celebrations were tragically marred, however, by an epidemic of a respiratory disease that struck 231 people, killing 34. Because most of the dead were members of the American Legion attending a convention, the ailment was dubbed Legionnaire’s Disease. It was later identified as the result of a bacteria found in the air-conditioning pipes of the Bellevue Stratford Hotel. The air conditioning was quickly replaced, but the damage had been done to the hotel’s reputation, and it went bankrupt shortly

afterward. On October 1, 1971, the 107-acre Walt Disney world resort officially opened, seven years after Walt Disney had procured 27,443 acres of land in central Florida. Unfortunately, Disney had passed away five years earlier and never saw his dream fulfilled. It is now the world’s most-visited entertainment resort and welcomes about 17 million visitors per year. Does the name Louise Brown ring a bell? She was a five-pound, 12-ounce baby girl delivered in July 1978, the world’s first test-tube baby, born as a result of the experimental in vitro fertilization process. Although called a test-tube baby, her conception actually took place in a petri dish. Brown became a mother herself in 2006. After scoring 1590 out of a possible 1600 on the SAT, 17-year-old Bill Gates enrolled at Harvard in 1973. He stayed in contact with his boyhood chum Paul Allen, and after dropping out of Harvard, Gates teamed up with Allen in 1975 to form Microsoft, a combined abbreviation of “microcomputer” and “software.” The big news of 1977 was the death of Elvis Presley, declared by the medical examiner as the result of “coronary arrhythmia.” Over the eight months prior to the King’s death, his physician had prescribed more than 10,000 doses of sedatives, amphetamines and narcotics. The autopsy revealed 14 different drugs in Presley’s system at the time of his death. As thousands lined up outside Graceland’s gates during the funeral, a car swerved into a group of fans, killing two. More than 80,000 people lined the procession route to his Forest Hill Cemetery burial site.

• In 1972, burglars broke into the Democratic Party’s National Committee office at the Watergate Hotel. In the coming months it was revealed that President Richard Nixon was involved in covering up the burglary and possessed a number of stolen tapes. When he refused to surrender the tapes, a judge ordered the chief executive to hand them over. In 1974, impeachment proceedings were initiated against the president. In August of that year, Nixon resigned and Gerald Ford became president. A month later, Ford issued a full pardon to Nixon for “all offenses against the United States.” • What were folks wearing in the 1970s? Bell-bottomed pants paired with either a turtleneck sweater or flower-print shirt was a popular look. After the premiere of the movie “Saturday Night Fever” in 1977, John Travolta’s three-piece suit and wide-collared shirt inspired the disco fashion. For women, hot pants and thighhigh boots were all the rage, as were fringed leather mini-skirts and platform shoes. Guys sported sideburns, and the large “Afro” hairstyle became fashionable. • In the sports world, Hank Aaron beat Babe Ruth’s home run record when he hit his 715th career home run in April 1974. By the time Aaron retired in 1976, his record was 755 homers, one that held until 2006. ABC began broadcasting Monday Night Football in 1970, and ESPN, an acronym for Entertainment and Sports Programming Network, was launched in September 1979 as a cable network devoted strictly to sports broadcasting. • In 1975, powerful Teamsters Union leader Jimmy Hoffa vanished from a restaurant parking lot in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan. He was allegedly tied to organized crime, and it was assumed he was killed by the Mafia. His body has never been found. Chrystal & Michael Garza were • On television, our favorite Westerns CAUGHT READING TIDBITS “Gunsmoke” and “The Virginian” at the Village Inn on 10th Street were phased out, as were sitcoms “Bewitched” and “I Dream of Jeannie.” The Sci-Fi era was ushered in with hits such as “The Six-Million Dollar Man,” “The Bionic Woman” and “Battlestar Galactica.” The controversial sitcom “All in the Family” had its run from 1971 to 1979, featuring the fictional Archie Bunker’s frequently inappropriate remarks about religious, political and social issues of the day. Game shows gained in popularity, including “Wheel of Fortune,” “Family Feud” and “The Price is Right,” first hosted by Bob Barker in 1972. NBC debuted “Saturday Night Live” in 1975; George Carlin was the first host with musical guests Janis Ian and Billy Preston. HBO was inaugurated as the first pay-TV channel in 1972. • Hard rockers were listening to the likes of Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd and Deep Purple, while Southern rockers tuned into The Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Disco lovers listened to the Bee Gees and danced the Hustle, and soft rock folks enjoyed the crooning of the Carpenters, Barry Manilow and the Osmonds. Billboard magazine declared Elton John the best artist of the decade. We started listening to our music on the Sony Walkman, a portable cassette player, in 1979. • At the theaters we were viewing “The Godfather,” “Rocky” and “Dirty Harry.” We were scared out of our seats by “The Exorcist,” “Jaws” and “Carrie” and laughed uproariously at “Animal House,” “Young Frankenstein” and “Monty Python.” George Lucas’ career took off with “American Graffiti” in 1973, followed by “Star Wars” in 1977, which quickly became the highest-grossing film of all time, an honor it maintained for the next five years. • Tidbits advertisers make Tidbits possible for you to read.

• It was British mathematician, philosopher and social critic Bertrand Russell who made the following sage observation: “Every advance in civilization has been denounced as unnatural while it was recent.” • If you’re like most adults, you have approximately 1,000 hairs per square inch of your scalp. That might seem like a lot, but consider the otter: Its 1 million hairs per square inch of skin make it the owner of the densest fur in the world. • Before the 19th century, it was déclassé to wear clothing with pockets. All the well-dressed members of the upper classes had servants to carry things for them. • The next time you’re out for a walk in the country, kneel down and scoop up a cupful of soil. You might be surprised to learn that that single cup of dirt could hold more bacteria than there are people on the planet. • Those who study such things say that more Frisbee-type discs are sold every year in the U.S. than footballs, baseballs and basketballs combined. • People sometimes fight over the silliest things. Countries, too. For example, in 1925, Greece and Bulgaria were at war for 10 days, all because of a dog. Evidently, tensions were high in October of that year, when a Greek soldier’s dog ran away from him -- across the border. The soldier chased his dog into Bulgaria, where he was shot dead by a sentry. In retaliation, the Greek army invaded, and the League of Nations had to step in to restore order to the region. • There is a species of frog found in Indonesia that breathes entirely through its skin; it has no lungs at all. *** Thought for the Day: “Everyone, in some small sacred sanctuary of the self, is nuts.” -- Leo Rosten (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

www.TrustTidbits.com FAMOUS LANDMARKS OF THE WORLD:

WAR MEMORIALS As Memorial Day approaches, Tidbits looks at two of America’s monuments to our fallen veterans. • The black granite panels of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall are inscribed with the names of the 58,272 who died or remain missing from the war. About three million people visit this site every year. • The Wall was the idea of Jan Scruggs, a corporal who served in Vietnam in 1969-1970 as part of the 199th Light Infantry Brigade. The memorial recognizes the sacrifice of all those who served. In 1979, he and a group of vets founded a nonprofit organization to raise funds for the project and raised nearly $9 million from private contributions, with no federal funds used. In 1980, President Jimmy Carter signed the legislation that provided the site near the Lincoln Memorial. A design contest was held, and in 1981, the winning design was chosen from 1,421 entries, submitted by a 21-year-old Yale University architecture student, Maya Ying Lin. • Groundbreaking took place in March 1982, and the Wall’s official dedication took place in November of that year. Each of the V-shaped monument’s two sections is 246.75 feet (75.2 m) long and consists of 70 inscribed panels. The names were not carved by hand but rather by a computerized typesetting process. The black granite came from India, one of only three places in the world where this volume of black granite in large sizes could be found. • The first casualty of the war was Richard Fitzgibbon, who died in June 1956. The name of his son is also etched in the granite; he was a casualty in September 1965. • At least 25,000 of the dead were 20 years old or younger, 17,000 were married, and 1,200 are still missing. The names of eight women are listed. • Also located in the Washington, D.C. area is the Marine Corps War Memorial, referred to by many as the Iwo Jima Memorial. This is because it is based on a photo snapped by Associated Press photographer Joe Rosenthal on February 23, 1945, as six Marines raised the U.S. flag on the Island of Iwo Jima during a fierce 36-day battle. Although the sculpture is modeled after World War II heroes, it actually memorializes all Marines who have given their lives since 1775 and was dedicated on the Marine Corps 179th anniversary in 1954. • The sculpture sits on a 7.5-acre tract of land in Arlington, Virginia, just outside the walls of Arlington National Cemetery, overlooking the Potomac River. • It is the largest bronze statue in the world, standing 78 feet (23.8 m) tall, with a weight of 100 tons. The figures are 32 feet (9.8 m) high and wear helmets with a 3.5-foot (1.1-m) diameter. The flagpole is 60 feet (18.3 me) long. A proclamation was issued in 1961 by President John F. Kennedy that a U.S. flag should fly from the memorial 24 hours a day. There are 108 parts in the sculpture that are bolted and welded together from the inside, with access to the inside through a trap door in one of the soldier’s cartridge belts. • Over the course of nine years, hundreds of sculptors assisted head sculptor Felix de Weldon, who first completed it in plaster, disassembled it, and trucked the pieces to Brooklyn to be cast in bronze. The bronzing process alone took three years to complete. Dates and locations of every major Marine Corps engagement are etched around the base of the monument.

OH, DEER!

Here are some facts you may not know about deer. • There are 38 different species of deer, including the more common white-tailed and mule as well as elk, moose, caribou and reindeer. • Deer are excellent swimmers, even the enormous moose, which can paddle several miles at a time and completely submerge for upwards of 30 seconds. • The smallest of the North American deer is the white-tailed deer. It’s also the most abundant big game animal on the continent. The white-tail is native to all but five U.S. states - Nevada, Utah, California, Alaska or Hawaii. • A male moose can weigh up to 1,800 pounds. Considering their size, moose are remarkably swift runners, up to 35 mph over short distances and a steady trot of 20 mph for longer intervals. • Folks talking about wapiti are referring to elk, second in size only to the moose. A typical bull elk weighs about 700 pounds, twice as much as a mule deer, and grows to a height of 5 feet with a length of 8 feet. The male elk sprouts antlers each year, which may be 3.9-feet long and weigh as much as 40 pounds. Antlers grow at a rate of nearly an inch a day and are covered with velvet during the growing season. • Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer is really a caribou. Caribou live in northern North America, Europe, Asia and Greenland. Typically, the Europeans refer to the species as reindeer, and nearly all Asian and European reindeer are domesticated, while the caribou of North America travel in large wild herds. At the time of the season’s first snowfall, caribou begin a southern migration, traveling as much as 1,600 miles each year. During the construction of the Alaska Pipeline, it was specifically stipulated that the project could not block caribou migrations. • Caribou are the only species in which the females can grow antlers. The female will bear just one calf each year, one that will be on its feet and traveling the very next day.

Strengthen Your Strengths Why are so many people miserable on their job? Here’s why: only two in ten people go to jobs where they work in the area of their strengths! This is according to research done by Marcus Buckingham and reported in his popular book titled “Now, Discover Dr. Ron Ross Your Strengths”. That means 80% of workers are wrongly employed, probably under-performing, and are definitely under-enjoying their hours on the job. That’s why the talk around the water cooler is all about how miserable people are and how much they look forward to the weekend. Are you one of the two or are you one of the ten? How would your life change if you got paid to do what you do best and what you most enjoy doing? If you work every day in the area of your greatest strengths you will be more productive and much happier. You already know why: You do best what you do best…and you do better what you most enjoy doing. You may have the idea of “strengthening your strengths” upside down because of that old school thing called the Report Card. Remember when you got yours and your parents sat you down at the kitchen table and went over your grades with you? If you got an A or a B+ in something you got a little pat on the back. But if you got a D or an F in something, you got a good talking to that had the underlying message that you were to strengthen your weaknesses and overlook your strengths (“Johnny, you’ve got to do something to bring up your low grades”). The result is that many folks focus more on the area of their weaknesses and try to bring them up to a par with their strengths. And the whole process can be very depressing. No one wants to spend hours working on something they hate or something that is not well tuned to their natural talents. But you can go from good to great if you discover and build on your talents, gifts, and motivations - if you strengthen your strengths. Don’t focus on your weaknesses – find and focus on your strengths. Then go to work on making your strengths even stronger. It’s possible you don’t even know what your strengths are. So, find out. If you’re really serious about changing your life, you should buy and read Buckingham’s book. In the meantime, here are three of many suggestions Buckingham makes for discovering your strengths: 1. Make a list of what energizes you, what you look forward to, what you feel really good about doing? 2. Then make a list of the opposite: Things that stress you out or drain your energy, or things you don’t like to do or avoid doing altogether. 3. At the end of a week review the two lists and you will have some insight into your natural strengths. Once you discover your strengths set about to strengthen them and you’ll be happier, more productive, and ultimately more successful.

“Prepare for the Boom” is a series of columns that will appear over the next six months. A compilation of the series will be made available toward the end of the series. Dr. Ross is the publisher of Tidbits of Greeley & West Weld County. To contact him email: RonaldDRoss@gmail.com
