SNIPPETZ THINKS PENGUINS ARE REALLY COOL BIRDS! by Deborah Stumpf
ISSUE 548 â€˘ APRIL 30, 2012
â€œItâ€™s practically impossible to look at a penguin and feel angry.â€? - Joe Moore
e humans love penguins. Thereâ€™s something endearing about those little waddling tuxedos with sweet, gentle personalities. There are between 16 and 19 species of penguins depending on who is classifying them. Other than those found in captivity, most of the worldâ€™s penguins are located in the southern hemisphere, especially Antarctica and the Galapagos Islands near South America. They can also be found near New Zealand, Australia and South Africa.

Penguins are birds that do not fly and have not been able to do so for millions of years. They are great swimmers, though, spending about 75 percent of their time under

THE DINING GUIDE water. They are able to swim up to speeds of about 20 miles per hour. Their wings are really strong flippers that propel them through the water as if flying. Their food is all under water as well. They are carnivores and consume fish, krill, shrimp and other crustaceans. They see better under water rather than outside of the water, making hunting for prey much easier.

have many natural predators. In the water, they are dinner for leopard seals, sharks, sea lions and orcas. Out of the water itâ€™s snakes and foxes. They also fall prey to other threats such as oil spills, illegal poaching and egg harvesting, as well as global warming which changes their environment and ability to hunt for food.

TEMPERATURE EXTREMES Different species of penguins thrive well in the cold, some in the heat. Youâ€™ve probably seen the films that show thousands of penguins huddling. They are warm-blooded birds with a body temperature of about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. They have a layer of fat or â€œblubberâ€? under the skin to help insulate them, as well as down-like feathers. Over those feathers, they have another layer of feathers for insulation. They have a gland that produces oil that they spread over their feathers to aid in maintaining body temperature. In contrast, species of penguins living in the Galapagos islands are less likely to be found huddled together, but rather spreading their wings to stay cool.
THE BIRDS AND THE BEES OF PENGUIN LIFE Penguins are monogamous, having one mate for life. The Emperor and King penguins lay one egg; other species lay two. The father penguin incubates the egg for 8-10 weeks on his feet in a pouch while mom goes to sea to eat and build up fat stores. Once the egg hatches, the mother returns and the father takes his turn at heading out to sea to replenish his body weight after losing about half of it during incubation. Penguins hang out in a colony of sorts and typically stay in one area all their lives, although most of the species do migrate. These colonies can house millions of penguins. They are â€œsocial butterflies.â€? They make distinctive sounds to identify their mates and offspring while in these colonies of thousands.
NOT ALL PENGUINS ARE ALIKE There are six different genera of penguin species all with distinct differences.
NOT EVERYONE SAYS AWWWW
â€˘ The genus Aptenodytes consists of the Emperor and King penguins only. These birds are quite different from other species, most notably in size. An Emperor can weigh up to 90 pounds. This is the species that only lays one egg at a time, carries it in a pouch and does not nest. These birds have colorful plumage and are known to be deep divers.

cies: Erect-crested penguin, Macaroni penguin, Rockhopper penguin and Snares penguin. These penguins are also quite colorful. Some have red bills and yellow feather plumes; the Macaroni has orange plumes. These birds lay two eggs, but only raise one offspring â€“ the one hatched from the second egg. The second egg is the largest and hatches first. This genus nests, some in the rocks, small caves or crevices; the Snares penguin prefers a forested area. â€˘ The Eudyptula genus includes only one species - the Little penguin, also known as Little Blue, Blue and Fairy penguin. These are the smallest penguins, weighing only about 2 pounds. They do not have colorful plumes as many of the other species, but are more gray-blue in color. They are also the only nocturnal penguin. These birds are less likely to be found in the larger colonies. These guys also eat smaller sea life, such as sardines and anchovies. â€˘ Like the Eudyptula genus, the Megadyptes contains only one species, the Yellow-eyed penguin. These birds can usually be found in southern New Zealand. They also tend to stay in smaller groups rather than the larger colonies. Their nests also tend to be separate from their neighbors. Their look is similar to the crested birds, but with yellow eyes; hence their name. â€˘ The most common genus is the Pygoscelis. These are the classic black and white penguins that we see at zoos and aquariums in the U.S. This genus includes the Gentoo penguins, Chinstrap penguins and Adelie penguins. The Gentoos do not migrate and stay close to home for breeding season. â€˘ The Spheniscus Genus has 4 species â€“ the African, Galapagos, Humboldt and Magellanic. The African penguin is the only pen-

The Galapagos penguin breeds the closest to the equator and its population has been threatened by El Nino weather events. The Humboldt prefers the hot desert climate or the heat of the Mediterranean. The Magellanic breed on the opposite side of the Atlantic as the African penguins.
CANâ€™T GET ENOUGH PENGUINS? Learning more about penguins is easy. There are some good films and documentaries easily attainable. One of the better known is â€œMarch of the Penguinsâ€? (2005) narrated by Morgan Freeman. This documentary follows the life of the Emperor penguins in particular. Our love of the penguin is obvious with the plethora of films either about penguins or featuring penguin characters. The short list:
â€˘ â€œMadagascarâ€? (2005), a Dreamworks animation film, is arguably the most popular movie that includes both penguins and humans. The penguins stole the show, but the producers have been laughing all the way to the bank. The movie grossed about $533 million. It also spawned a Nickelodeon animated television series, airing 122 episodes since 2008. The show is still going strong. â€˘ â€œHappy Feetâ€? (2006) was also a successful animated film featuring penguins, grossing over $284 million. This ďŹ lm features singing Emperor penguins with one outcast who canâ€™t hold a tune but can dance well enough to go on â€œDancing With The Stars.â€? â€˘ More recently, in 2011, â€œMr. Popperâ€™s Penguinsâ€? was released, starring Jim Carrey as a regular guy who inherits six penguins and manages to keep them in his house. This penguin flick grossed only just over $187 million at the box office. Maybe it needed less Jim Carrey and more penguins?

OTHER “FAMOUS” PENGUINS Remember the singing group “The Penguins?” They were an R&B, doo-wop group from the 1950s and 1960s. Their biggest success was their 1954 release “Earth Angel” which was the first song from the R&B genre to cross over to pop. They named themselves The Penguins because they thought they were cool – an important distinction of the day.
HUSH By Nicholas James Yanez
ord of mouth has always been a powerful tool; from the days of Paul Revere riding and warning, to how facebook built an online empire, people talk. Of course everyone has gotten angry at a chatty Kathy once or twice, but if you can find a way to take advantage of those who speak excessively, it can really work to your benefit. That’s what we here at Pinz have tried to do with our latest epic endeavor; and believe you me, we know a couple talkers. That’s why, if you’ve flipped through the paper lately, you’ve probably seen at least something about Pinz’ Community Day. It’s this whole big celebration we’re throwing as celebration of the Tri-Lakes area. It takes place on the first Saturday of every summer month (May, June, July, and August).
The first one happens to be this Saturday, May 5th. The specials may be mind blowing, so hold onto your skull. There will be (drum roll)… FREE BOWLING! From 12pm-3pm Pinz will offer up to two games per person of free bowling. Other events include a Car Bash and Garden Tractor Pull (to help benefit the Palmer Lake Fireworks Committee), Live Music

ome things in life have become much easier or convenient due to technology. Through the use of cellular phones, we are always able to attempt to call someone on the go or have a handy dandy flashlight using the flashlight application. Through the use of the Internet, we can easily research something on a moment’s notice and 24 hours a day. Through the use of digital music, we can listen to new songs immediately without traveling to a store. But is all technology beneficial to us?
It should be no surprise that there is a town called Penguin. It’s located on the coast of northern Tasmania. The coastline attracts a population of Fairy penguins, which attracts a large tourist population during the breeding months between November and March.
Currently, there are two major biotech companies. One of those companies is the largest and most profitable. It uses technology to change or adapt our food. The company’s promise is that the technology will be used to feed the world and make agriculture more convenient. That convenience comes in being able to spray crops with an abundance of weed killer without killing the crop. It also makes the crops aluminum resistant.

Groups are welcome to hold fundraiser, set up a booth, have a bake sale, or just hand out information free of charge. It’s the best way to gain awareness for your organization, while everyone has a great time.
Scientists of biotech companies are working on combining genes from one species to another species for the sake of convenience. For example, some scientists are combining genes of a rat with the genes of lettuce and the genes of a toad with the genes of a potato. Sounds a bit SciFi, but then, 50 years ago, cellular phones and digital tablets that we currently use seemed Sci-Fi.
So get talking folks. We need the word heard in the west and east, up top and down low. If there was ever a time to gossip and spill out whatever pops in your head, now is the time. Of course since I’m telling you this, will it make you not want to talk? After all, it seems you talkers only tell the world about things you’re supposed to keep quiet. It makes me really rethink this entire article. Tell you what, this Community Day thing, the one that takes place this Saturday, May 5th; the all day, 12pm-12am spectacle, that will benefit the entire Tri-Lakes area - Don’t tell a soul. Let’s call it our little secret.
Why aren’t GM foods labeled? The answer lies within those who are in charge of making or preventing that from happening on a national level. Simply research the links between FDA and USDA employees and former giant biotech companies. Currently, the state of California is fighting to have GM foods labeled and Peru has implemented a 10-year ban on GM crops. When people eat an abundance of processed foods (most contain soy and corn) and processed sugar, the body begins collecting toxins from those foods. Over a period of time, the person can experience many different health issues aside from weight gain. For this to change, one can receive the Tai Yi treatment Poisoned Health. For those who desire to change their diet, this treatment can benefit the physical body by assisting it to release the toxins quicker. When eating an abundance of GM foods, the intestines and liver become greatly impacted. This treatment assists in repairing the damage from GM foods. Tami Urbanek

More commonly, soybeans are genetically modified to resist weed killer. That allows the farmer to heavily spray the soybean crops. Approximately, 90% of our soybeans are genetically modified (GM), 85% of our corn is GM, 70% of our wheat and cotton are GM. By changing the genetics of the foods, what does it do to human’s genetic structure over a period of time? It begins to alter it and the human body collects and reacts to the toxins.

• It was British doctor and author Alec Bourne who made the following sage observation: “It is possible to store the mind with a million facts and still be entirely uneducated.” • In 2007, a world record was set off the coast of Brazil when a single wave was caught by 84 surfers. • Have you ever heard of a book called “Never Again” by Doug Nufer? Probably not -- it’s not on any bestseller lists and hasn’t been reviewed by any notable critics. It’s quite possibly unique in literary history, however; in its entire 192 pages, not a single word -- even basic words such as a, an, the, of and for -- is used twice.

• If you were to stack up a million $1 bills, they would weigh about one ton. • The Twist dance craze in the 1960s changed the culture in America and spread around the
world. Most people don’t realize, though, that the song “The Twist,” which started the fad, wasn’t originally sung by Chubby Checker, though he was the one who sent the single up the charts and has since been irrevocably associated with the dance. The song was originally written and performed by an R&B singer named Hank Ballard. A deejay in Baltimore saw teenagers dancing to Ballard’s song and called Dick Clark, host of “American Bandstand.” Clark loved it and invited Ballard to perform the song on the show, but it didn’t work out. Instead, Clark found someone else to perform the song: Ernest Evans, who changed his name to Chubby Checker. It made his career. • Colonel Sanders started selling chicken when he was 65 years old, and his only goal was to make $1,000 a month. ***

surgical treatment of GERD is an option that’s open to you. Palpitations mean a thumping or racing heart. They can be felt as a thud in the chest. The cause is an extra beat -- or more correctly, a premature beat -- one that comes before it should. The beat after a premature beat is delayed. During the delay, the heart fills with more blood than usual, and that causes a thump in the chest when the heart empties. Premature beats are almost always innocent and need no treatment. You can believe your doctors and nurses. The booklet on GERD explains this common malady and its treatment. To order a copy, write: Dr. Donohue -- No. 501W, Box 536475, Orlando, FL 328536475.

ANSWER: GERD -- gastroesophageal reflux disorder -- is heartburn. It’s the upward spurting of stomach acid and digestive juices into the esophagus, the swallowing tube, a place that is not able to cope with these corrosive juices the way the stomach is. Eliminate or go easy on foods that make GERD worse: citrus fruits; tomatoes; onions; carbonated drinks; spicy, fatty or fried foods; chocolate; peppermint; and caffeine. If you’re overweight, weight loss lessens GERD symptoms. Don’t lie down after eating. Don’t smoke. Sleep with your head, chest and stomach on a slope by putting 6-inch blocks under the bedposts at the head of your bed. That position keeps stomach acid in the stomach. Don’t wear anything that constricts your stomach, like tight pants or tight belts. Medicines called “proton pump inhibitors” nearly completely turn off acid production. Nexium, Prevacid, Prilosec, Protonix, Aciphex and Dexilant are their names. If you still have heartburn while on these medicines, it’s OK to use an antacid along with them. If medicines fail, other causes of heartburn need consideration, things like bile reflux or eosinophilic esophagitis. If these conditions aren’t found, then

ANSWER: I can tell you only a little, because only a little is known about it. It’s a lung injury that comes on suddenly, with damage to the lung air sacs (the alveoli) and the spaces between the air sacs, the interstitium. The cause is unknown. Because of such destruction, oxygen cannot get into the blood. Patients are severely short of breath, have a fever and they cough. The only medicines are ones to keep the person going as best as possible. There is no cure medicine. Even with a ventilator, death happens to more than 60 percent of these patients. It’s an illness that reminds doctors that they don’t have an answer for every malady. You and your family have my condolences.

MOMENTS IN TIME THE HISTORY CHANNEL
â€˘ On May 6, 1911, George Maledon, the man who executed at least 60 men for â€œHanging Judgeâ€? Isaac Parker, dies of natural causes in Tennessee. Paid $100 for each hanging, he tried to be a conscientious hangman who minimized suffering with a quick death. Maledon considered the job â€œhonorable and respectable work.â€? â€˘ On April 30, 1927, the Federal Industrial Institution for Women, the first womenâ€™s federal prison, opens in Alderson, W.Va. All women serving federal sentences of more than a year were to be brought there, with the vast majority imprisoned for drug and alcohol charges imposed during the Prohibition era. â€˘ On May 1, 1931, President Herbert Hoover officially dedicates New York Cityâ€™s Empire State Building. The entire 102-story building went up in just over a year, under budget (at $40 million) and well ahead of schedule. During certain periods of building, the frame grew an astonishing four-and-a-half stories a week.
â€˘ On May 5, 1945, in Lakeview, Ore., six people are killed while attempting to drag a Japanese balloon out of the woods. The explosive balloon was one of a handful of Japanese attacks against the continental United States, which were conducted by Japanese submarines and later by highaltitude balloons carrying explosives or incendiaries. â€˘ On May 3, 1952, a ski-modified U.S. Air Force C-47 becomes the ďŹ rst aircraft to land on the North Pole. On the flight was Dr. Albert P. Crary, a scientist who in 1961 traveled to the South Pole by motorized vehicle, becoming the first person in history to have stood on both poles. â€˘ On May 4, 1965, San Francisco Giants outfielder Willie Mays hits his 512th career home run to break Mel Ottâ€™s National League record. Mays would finish his career with 660 home runs, good for third on the all-time list at the time of his retirement. â€˘ On May 2, 1972, Steven Spielberg begins filming â€œJaws.â€? The production, which used three mechanical sharks to great effect, enthralled audiences and grossed $458 million in its theatrical release. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

SNIPPETZ DINING GUIDE ®
up to a year frozen. This heart-healthy recipe for Savory Almond and Cheese Straws makes an excellent snack and is a great way to incorporate almonds into your diet.
SAVORY ALMOND AND CHEESE STRAWS
GO NUTS FOR
f all the things to love about almonds, this one should really get your heart pumping: Just a handful of almonds a day could help maintain healthy cholesterol levels. That’s good news for just about everyone, as cardiovascular disease holds its spot as the leading cause of death among men and women in the U.S. Research shows that a diet high in hearthealthy foods like almonds can reduce cholesterol levels as much as statin drugs like lovastatin and mevastatin. Almonds also are one of the richest sources of vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant that helps to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease. A study published in the June 2005 Journal of Nutrition showed that consuming whole almonds, including the skin, doubles the antioxidant intake. Just 1 ounce (22 almonds) packs more protein than an egg and more than 3 grams of dietary fiber. This same portion of almonds provides about 160 calories and the high protein content staves off hunger. Almonds also are a rich source of riboflavin, magnesium, manganese and copper. Shelled almonds may be whole, sliced or slivered with skin on, or blanched with the skin removed. Look for dryroasted almonds that contain no additional ingredients like sugar or preservatives. Store them in a tightly sealed container in a cool, dry place to prevent them from going rancid and absorbing odors of other foods. Almonds will last several months in the refrigerator and
1 pound puff pastry dough 1 egg, beaten with 1 teaspoon water 3/4 cup grated dry cheese, such as Parmesan or aged Gouda 3/4 cup almonds, chopped Flour for dusting 1. Thaw pastry overnight in refrigerator or 40 minutes at room temperature. Unfold pastry sheets on a lightly floured surface. With the shorter side facing you, roll out each sheet to 12 by 12 inches. Cut each sheet in half, lengthwise. 2. Brush dough with egg mix and sprinkle with an even coating of cheese and almonds. With a rolling pin, lightly press the mixture into the dough. Cut each half crosswise into 3/4-inch strips. Place on parchment-lined baking sheets and refrigerate for 30 minutes before baking. 3. Bake at 400 F, 9 to 10 minutes, or until light brown and crisp. Makes about 96 straws.

New DVD Releases for Week of April 30, 2012 PICKS OF THE WEEK “Joyful Noise” (PG-13) -- Dolly Parton and Queen Latifah go head to head in this high-volume shipment of cheese and song. Vi (Latifah) is the director of a small-town church choir with dreams of winning the National Joyful Noise Competition. Choir veteran G.G. (Parton) thinks it’s time the whole choir thing should go “Sister Act 2”and get a new style. Soon, G.G.’s talented bad-boy grandson (Jeremy Jordon)
and Vi’s talented-choirgirl daughter (Keke Palmer) start getting too close. For those who cannot digest TV’s “Glee,” steer wide and clear of this one. The songs can be catchy and impressive and even a little uplifting. It’s the script and the vacant humor that knock this one off key. “Haywire” (R) -- Somebody at the big, morally ambiguous spy office sure goofed again, because another trained killer has “gone rogue” after a failed backstabbing. This time it’s Gina Carano, a mixed-martial arts fighter trying on her first movie role as Mallory Kane, an assassin bent on getting revenge on those who betrayed her. The story is familiar, but well-executed Director Steven Soderbergh utilizes his female lead well. You can tell it’s her in the action sequences, and when she’s not fighting, she’s surrounded by more experienced actors. Carano makes a great action hero because you believe she really could
do that move where she strangles a hitman with her legs while twisting his arm. “Kinyarwanda” -- In this drama, different stories are woven together to give a multidimensional perspective on the massacre in Rwanda in 1994. The characters include a young couple and their son -- all three are in danger because the parents are from different ethnic groups. This, however, isn’t a story about survival, but of the issues involved before, during and after the genocide.
DOG OF THE WEEK
“New Year’s Eve” (PG-13) -- What happens when you pack as many stars as you can fit into a romantic comedy set around one day? An unlovable lump of cameos and an annoying ad campaign where it’s obvious that many of the stars couldn’t be paid to do a promo shot. This movie is the
toxic runoff created by overpressured mediocrity. It’s the fruitcake of film; a dense, unwanted amalgamation of unused tidbits that forces its way into our lives around the holidays. It stars Hilary Swank, Robert De Niro and a ton of other people who don’t mind being left off the list. Each cluster of stars forms its own little love story that is somehow vaguely connected to the other vignettes. In the end, all the half-baked stories come to a big undeserved climax that unconvincingly demands that you experience tender emotions.

Twice -- he won the title in 1974 and lost in 1975.
FLASH BACK ANSWERS 1. Roy Orbison, in 1963. Oddly enough, “Mean Woman Blues” went higher on the charts that the better known “Blue Bayou.” 2. Marvin Gaye, “The Prince of Motown,” in 1965. The song was used in the 2003 film “American Splendor.” 3. James Taylor, in 1970. The album included “Fire and Rain,” which Taylor allegedly wrote about having shock therapy in a mental hospital. 4. Christopher Cross, in 1980. Both went to the top of the charts and appeared on his self-titled debut album. 5. “Hey Joe,” in 1974. It didn’t chart, but “Hey Joe” established Smith as a rocker. 6.

TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You are aware of what’s going on, so continue to stand by your earlier decision, no matter how persuasive the counter-arguments might be. Money pressures soon will ease. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) By all means, have fun and enjoy your newly expanded social life. But don’t forget that some people are depending on you to keep promises that are very important to them. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You need to wait patiently for an answer to a workplace problem and not push for a decision. Remember: Time is on your side. A financial matter needs closer attention. LEO (July 23 to August 22) You now have information that can influence that decision you planned to make. But the clever Cat will consult a trusted friend or family member before making a major move. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Good news: You’re finding that more doors are opening for you to show what you can do, and you don’t even have to knock very hard to get the attention you’re seeking.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) Congratulations. Your energy levels are coming right back up to normal -- just in time to help you tackle some worthwhile challenges and make some important choices. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) The sage Sagittarian should demand a full explanation of inconsistencies that might be cropping up in what had seemed to be a straightforward deal. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A conflict between obligations to family and to the job can create stressful problems. Best advice: Balance your dual priorities so that one doesn’t outweigh the other. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) Don’t guess, speculate or gossip about that so-called “mystery” situation at the workplace. Bide your time. An explanation will be forthcoming very soon. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Boredom might be creeping in and causing you to lose interest in a repeat project. Deal with it by flipping over your usual routine and finding a new way to do an old task. BORN THIS WEEK: You can warm the coldest heart with your lyrical voice and bright smile. You find yourself at home, wherever you are.
