STRANGE BUT TRUE By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, Ph.D.

Q. Who was perhaps the dourest prognosticator of the last few centuries, and have we humans successfully beat his gloomy economics yet? A. Thomas Robert Malthus was the economist who in 1798 famously predicted that population growth tends to outstrip food production, depressing living standards and pitching the world back toward subsistence, says Jeffrey Sachs in “Scientific American” magazine. Yet as advances in seed breeding, chemical fertilizers, irrigation and the like seemed to buoy the food supply limitlessly, Malthusian economics became a source of mockery. As the population grew, it was argued, more geniuses would appear, spurring technology even more. But the replacement fertility rate of 2.1 kids per family now teeters perilously at 2.6, leading the U.N. Population Division to caution that with the current addition of 79 million people per year, world population may total 9.2 billion by 2050! The dangers here include food and oil shortages, rising greenhouse gasses, gutting of the oceans, depletion of the rain forests, etc. Yet these are not inevitable, stresses Sachs, if we all take the right steps by converting to solar power and safe nuclear power plus developing waterefficient farming, green buildings, highmileage cars. We’ll also need to rethink our modern diets and lifestyles to reduce consumption. So have we beaten Malthus? “Two centuries after his work, we still do not really know.”

Out of the Mouths of Babes A family had several guests over to dinner and everyone had been seated at the table. The mother asked her small daughter to lead everyone in saying grace. The little girl balked, saying she didn’t know what to say. “Just say what you hear Mommy usually saying,” replied her mother. “Ok,” stated the little girl. “Dear Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people over for dinner?”

Save a Life This Summer Lifeguards aren’t the only ones who’ll be saving lives this summer. People like you and your neighbor will be, donating blood. According to Beth-Anne Ferley, Donor Recruitment Director at United Blood Services, participation drops off slightly at summer blood drives. At the same time, donations throughout the region drop in the summer because high schools and colleges, which are enthusiastic blood drive sponsors, are not in session. In this area, a whopping 10% of the local blood supply comes from high school and college students. When those students are on summer vacation, it’s up to the community to make up the difference. “It’s no secret,” Ferley says. “People simply are much busier than they are at other times of the year. Although donors might have other things to do, patients continue to need blood. Nearly 185 blood donations are required each week to meet the needs of hospital patients.” Eligible blood donors are encouraged to give blood regularly to keep hospital shelves stocked with lifesaving blood.

Ferley urges residents to adopt United Blood Services’ slogan: “Find the Hero in You. Make time to save lives, or recruit others in your place if you are unable to give. We encourage donors to donate at least three times a year - each donation can save up to two people’s lives!” All donors will receive a free cholesterol test with every blood donation. Anyone interested in donating at a local blood drive or at a donation center, may contact Rapid City at 800-834-8525 or visit to schedule an appointment. United Blood Services has been this area’s non-profit community blood provider since 1965, and serves patients in 25 hospitals in South Dakota, Wyoming, and Nebraska. The United Blood Services network is one of the nation’s oldest and largest non-profit blood service organizations, and is a founding member of America’s Blood Centers and the AABB.

From Mouse to Fairy Have you lost a tooth yet? Did you put it under your pillow for the tooth fairy to replace with money or a small gift? There are many stories of how the tooth fairy came to be, but one of the most common comes from a French fairy tale in which a mouse turns into a fairy to help a good queen defeat a bad king. The mouse hides under the king’s pillow and knocks out all of his teeth.

In 1927, a children’s play was produced about the tooth fairy. The tooth fairy did not really become popular until 1949 when Lee Rothgow published the book The Tooth Fairy. Today, children in the United States look forward to the arrival of the tooth fairy. Don’t you?

STRANGE BUT TRUE By Bill Sones and Rich Sones, Ph.D.

Q. For a young couple who love science, just what might be a doggone dandy of a honeymoon? A. While many of us might travel domestically and send friends postcards, University of California’s Ryan and Corin McLean Boyko visited Africa and sent back samples of dog DNA, says “Science” magazine. Between gazing at the pyramids and rafting past crocodiles, the two grad students collected blood samples from 350 village dogs in Uganda, Egypt and Namibia for a family member’s post-doc research project in genetics at Cornell. Armed with a portable centrifuge, the newlyweds got help from veterinarians and government officials for the samplings, weighing each dog in a cloth sling suspended from a fish scale and vaccinating some against rabies. “At nightfall, the motor of a hired taxi ran their centrifuge to process the blood samples.” Science is a big part of our relationship, says Corin, so it seemed fitting to be doing this for our honeymoon, and we think this will be one of our favorite memories for years to come. In addition, the couple will gain a citation as co-authors of the paper on African dog diversity.

Bringing Home a Second Pet

If you are considering getting another pet, you should spend some time making sure it will be a good fit for your current animal. The first thing you should do is make sure that your first pet is agreeable to other dogs. Take him to visit a friend with a dog or try out a dog park to see how he interacts with other dogs. If he is aggressive with every dog he meets, you may need to reconsider your decision. But if he is ready for a new friend, your best bet is to bring your dog to meet a new dog in a neutral environment. This can be a kennel, a parking lot, a park, or a friend’s house. This allows you to introduce them without experiencing territorial behavior. Keep both dogs on leashes and let them approach each other slowly. There are some ways to make the change easier on your pet. If you have a spayed female, your best bet is to add a male to your family. Males and females get along better than a pair of the same sex. If neither animal has had obedience training, try taking them together. This will help keep them well behaved around each other and other people and animals. Also remember that dogs most often fight over resources, such as food, beds, toys, bones, and human attention. Give each dog his or her own bed and take care when handing out snacks and filling food bowls. You should always feed the dominant dog first to avoid any conflict.

How to Make Marshmallow Fondant Television shows and culinary demonstrations dedicated to professionally decorating cakes have grown in popularity. Many home bakers want to try to recreate the looks of elaborate cakes, complete with materials professional bakers use, including fondant. Fondant is a type of sugar frosting or covering used on cakes. In its pure form, fondant is white. However, it can be tinted to any color to create spectacular cake creations. It even can be molded into figurines or other shapes for more appeal. Most of the fondant used on cakes is rolled fondant, or a dry, firm fondant that is rolled out and smoothed over the cake. Fondant is sold in many craft and bake shops and can be expensive when compared to royal icing, butter cream or generic frosting. Fondant is very mild in flavor and doesn’t taste particularly good. Some chefs choose to flavor the fondant, but many others use the fondant only for looks and then the covering is peeled back before the cake is enjoyed. A fondant that tastes good can be made relatively easily from a few ingredients, including marshmallows.

Marshmallow Fondant 16 ounces mini marshmallows 4 tablespoons water 2 pounds powdered sugar, sifted Shortening 1. Dip a paper towel or cloth into the

shortening and grease all of the items you will be using to make the fondant.

Motorcycle Safety Prevents Accidents

Motorcycles have been around for decades and so have riding enthusiasts. Through all of the innovations and motorcycle design changes, safety while riding remains of the utmost importance. Very often motorcycle accidents are attributed to lack of rider skill. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that there are roughly 4 million registered motorcycle riders on American roadways. There may be many others who are unlicensed who still hop on a motorcycle as a preferred mode of transportation. There are several advantages to motorcycles. With some models, motorcycles offer a ride with good fuel economy. Cycles take up less space than cars, and they can be easier to park and maintain in an urban setting.

NHTSA statistics indicate that motorcycle fatalities make up around 5 percent of all traffic fatalities. Eighty percent of motorcycle accidents result in injury or death, compared to the roughly 20 percent of other vehicles. That's due to the minimal protection the vehicle provides. This further emphasizes the necessity to properly and safely operate a motorcycle to avoid accidents in the first place. Riding safely first involves purchasing a bike that is the right size and power for the rider. Larger bikes can be heavy and riders who are small in stature may not be able to maneuver or lift the motorcycle should it fall over. Also, riders should choose bikes that fit their lifestyles. For instance, atrail bike will not be safe on a highway. It is a good idea to enroll in a motorcycle safety course if this is a rider's first experience with a bike. This course will give invaluable tips regarding maneuvering, learning about operating the cycle, defensive driving techniques and other tips specific to motorcycles. For example, intersections

We would like to wish everyone a happy, fun, and safe 2011 Sturgis Rally!

are one place on a roadway where many accidents take place. Bike riders should try to enter an intersection with a larger vehicle on the right of the motorcycle or at least in the left-most lane to provide a space cushion from oncoming traffic. Of course, protective clothing and equipment are essential to minimize injuries if an accident should occur. Helmets, goggles, boots, long pants, jackets, and the like should be worn at all times. Injuries can often be prevented with protective gear, but many riders still don't embrace such gear. Another important safety tip is to recognize that traveling with another passenger is much more difficult to do than riding alone. A passenger can throw off the balance of the bike and add weight, two factors that may be different from what the rider is used to. Before taking another passenger out for a spin, riders should be extremely experienced in handling the bike and proficient in all controls and safety maneuvers.

Here are some other safety tips motorcycle riders can heed. * Treat other motorists with courtesy. * Do not tailgate. * Do not cut through the middle of lanes or pass cars on the right while traffic is stopped. * Be especially alert at intersections. * Use signals whenever appropriate. * Avoid driving during inclement weather. * Assume the motorcycle is invisible to other drivers; position yourself to be seen. * Avoid sudden braking or turning. * Maintain a safe distance between vehicles. * Use headlights during nighttime and daytime hours. * Watch the road surface to anticipate potential hazards.

Look at That!

A little girl accompanied her mother to visit some elderly relatives in a nursing home. Her mother had discussed with her things she might see during their visit, including canes and wheelchairs, which all intrigued the little girl. Finally, towards the end of the visit, the mother noticed the little girl staring at a pair of false teeth that were soaking in a glass. Bracing herself for the inevitable questions from her little girl, the mother heard her say, “The tooth fairy will never believe this!” Campbell County Memorial Hospital

Dog Days of Summer The term “dog days of summer” is one that most people are familiar with. But do you know what it means? Technically, the “dog days of summer” run from July 3 to August 11, and are associated with the hottest days of the season. The dog reference has to do with the night sky. Sirius, the brightest star in the summer sky, is in the constellation called Canis Major, which means “big dog.” Ancient people living in the Mediterranean region believed that such a large star as Sirius generated heat, just as the sun does. During the days from early July to mid-August, Sirius is in conjunction with the sun. This means that it rises and sets, and is in alignment with, the sun. These ancient people thought that the heat from the sun was being joined by the heat from Sirius, causing much warmer days. They called this time of year the “dog days,” after the constellation Canis Major. Folklore about these unique days continued into relatively modern times. You can probably still find some older folks who remember the old wives’ tale about fish losing their teeth during the “dog days of summer.” With no teeth, the fish developed sore gums and were unable to feed until the return of cooler weather. For these folks, this helped explain why fishing at their regular fishing holes was so poor during the late summer months.

Ten Tips For Family Fun In The Pool & Sun

(NAPSI)—For a hot time in warm weather, consider these 10 tips, time-savers, water-care ideas, and maintenance and safety suggestions for backyard living: 1. Safety first. Keep each child within arm’s length at all times; designate an adult as water watcher; ensure that the pool’s fence is always locked; and install both gate and pool alarms. 2. Dress up the landscape. Use shrubs for form, foliage-heavy plants for color and sturdy perennials for cheery blooms with little tending. 3. Add years to backyard furnishings. If mildew spots appear on outside chairs and tables, wash the fabric according to manufacturer directions and dry in the sun. Then mix together equal parts lemon juice and salt; spread on the stain. Dry in the sun again and rinse thoroughly. 4. Organize backyard toys and tools. Two simple storage rules for keeping backyard clutter down: Air out wet things by storing them in big mesh bags or open-weave crates. Toss all the little bits into a clear plastic shoe organizer hung on a fence or nearby wall. 5. Try a water workout. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just 21 minutes a day of exercising in a pool can cut your risk of chronic disease. Strength, endurance and balance are all benefits of using water as the resistance. A typical water exercise session of 40 to 50 minutes can burn up to 600 calories. 6. Create a backyard oasis. Instead of using typical bulk salt, for your saltwater pool consider Mineral Springs from BioGuard. It contains a special blend of minerals, pool equipment protectors, water enhancers and pH adjusters that all work to make silky, relaxing water. 7. Soak in a sensational spa. Place flameless LED candles around the edge of the spa. Take tunes into the spa with a floating speaker that connects wirelessly to an MP3 player. Add a soothing scent to the water with single-use aromatherapy packs. 8. Be more environmentally friendly. Always keep your pool water balanced with the right combination of chemicals. Overworked filters and motors waste energy and hike utility bills. 9. Help pets swim safely. Before you let a dog jump in, make sure he can get out without damaging the pool or hurting himself. Also check with the vet. Swimming in a pool should be appropriate for the breed. Monitor the water. A typical dog can be the equivalent of about 50 swimmers in the pool, meaning extra vigilance is needed to maintain the chemical balance. 10. Maintain a pristine pool. A good pool-care strategy involves circulation, filtration, cleaning, testing and chemistry. A BioGuard dealer can provide computerized water testing and recommend the best care schedule for your pool.

New Tips For Finding A Job

(StatePoint) Whether you are looking to switch jobs or are out of work, it can now take longer than ever to find a new job. And it’s not just the economy that’s to blame. “The rules have changed when it comes to finding jobs,” says William Holland, author of the new book “Cracking the New Job Market.” “Globalization and technological advances have permanently transformed the job market. It’s not about your credentials, but rather the value you offer a company.” Recruiter Tony Beshara agrees. “A resume is not a simple list of your credentials, devoid of context,” says Beshara, author of the new guide, “Unbeatable Resumes.” “It’s a sales tool that lets the hiring authority know you can perform the duties needed immediately. “ To help job seekers, Holland and Beshara offer the following advice: •Be open to all opportunities. In decades past, job seekers were told that networking was critical to finding the right job, as if there was a hidden job market only others knew about. That may have been true when companies hired family members and friends of employees, but in today’s competitive market, companies are focused on hiring the person who can best do the job with minimal training. So don’t shy away from applying to postings on job boards or company websites. But continue to reach out to friends and family, or even connections through social networking sites like LinkedIn. Just know

that the most important thing is that you match a company’s desired attributes. •Tailor your resume. The average resume gets read in ten seconds. With that kind of attention span, you better make sure your resume stands out. This doesn’t mean using distracting formats or flourishes. Make sure your resume reflects the responsibilities of the job in language the screener (often not an expert in your field) can understand. •Ace the interview. You need to demonstrate the value you can bring to a company through the interview process. Before interviewing, prepare by making a chart listing the job’s responsibilities and your matching experience. But remember, the key to achieving maximum performance is to enter any testing situation with an uncluttered mind. •Plan for the future. The average white collar worker holds a job for two and a half to three years, according to Beshara. Therefore, it’s wise to plan for future job searches after getting your next job. This means planning for a future period of unemployment by saving for an emergency fund and living within your means so you don’t accrue debt, says Holland. It also means keeping in touch with your network and updating your resume as you log accomplishments, adds Beshara. More tips on finding a job in today’s economy can be found in the new books “Unbeatable Resumes” and “Cracking the New Job Market.”

Great Time Management Tips

(StatePoint) We’re all pressed for time. From working professionals to busy stayat-home parents, we could all use a few more hours in our day. This is especially true when we’re trying to achieve things outside of our daily routine -- whether it’s starting a business, writing a book, restoring a classic car, training for a marathon or simply pursuing a passionate interest. “My day job as a communications advisor keeps me busy” says Rick Mofina, who is also a bestselling author of 12 books including the new thriller “In Desperation” “I’ve learned that time management is critical to achieving my goals.” Mofina offers some tips for people looking for time to write, train, or simply pursue a side project outside their chosen profession: •First, set your goal then ask yourself if you are serious about reaching it. What are you willing to give up to achieve that goal? A little less television? How about adjusting your sleep so you can invest a few extra minutes on that goal? •Consider yourself the CEO of your goal and hire yourself to achieve it. Be disciplined and refuse to make excuses that allow you to fail -- things like “I’ll do this when I retire” or “when I have more time.” Nope: You’ve just been hired to find the time. •Start small. Even 30 minutes spent doing something you love will leave you

more energized. You’ll be rewarded at having taken a step closer to the finish line. •You know better than anyone how much time you waste, or what time in your day or week you could use more effectively toward applying to your goal. You don’t have to follow anyone else’s rules. “Write in airports, on airplanes, in hotels,” says Mofina. “I write early in the morning. I even write on the bus during my daily commute to my day job.” •Understand that you can’t optimize everything -- money, love, family, work, health, leisure. We’re only human; no one’s a superstar at everything. Celebrities may appear to be, but usually they just have great publicists. •Dare to be slow. Being a good time manager doesn’t mean doing things the fastest, but the most efficiently. Going slow can help you attend to things once, instead of having to go back and correct sloppy mistakes.

“O-SO-SPECIAL” Blood Donors Needed

It’s a fact: our emergency rooms are using more and more type-O blood each year. That’s because type-O negative blood can be transfused to patients with other blood types. In many emergency situations, hospitals must use type-O blood until the patient is stabilized and blood type is determined. United Blood Services, the area’s nonprofit community blood provider, is particularly concerned about attracting new donors with type-O blood and giving current type-O donors opportunities to donate three or four times a year. According to Beth-Anne Ferley, Donor Recruitment Director of United Blood Services, transfusions of certain types do not always match the percentage of people in the population who have that type. “And that’s where the special type-O donors play an important role,” she said. “They are kind of like everything to everybody!” If you are an old O donor who hasn’t given in a while, or a new donor who would like to try it for the first time, United Blood Services encourages you to come to a blood drive in your area. Don’t know your blood type? “You can easily find it out,” said Beth-Anne. “Once you’ve made your donation, you can log in to and learn your blood type, along with other health information like the free cholesterol reading you’ll receive when you donate. You might just be one of those oh-so-special O’s.”

Janet’s Notebook By Janet Tharpe

Cultivate Sweet Summer Moments by the Bushel

It’s peach-picking time again! And whether you’re picking ‘em from the tree or from the grocery store shelf, now is the time to indulge in the summery sweetness of all things peachy. First off, when picking out your perfect peach, look past the fuzz to the color underneath. The ideal peach will have a golden or yellow “under-color”. Don’t let the color of the fuzz fool you; the reddish blush is an indication of variety rather than ripeness. Ripe peaches will give a little to the touch, but be careful not to bruise them... These guys can be rather delicate. Haysi, Va. gal April Fuller found her favorite way to enjoy peaches while on vacation: It’s her Peaches and Cream Cake! “I had this [cake] at a bed and breakfast in Elizabeth City, North Carolina,” explains April, “and I have searched high and low since then to find the correct recipe... this is wonderful!” Yes, wonderful AND quite simple to prepare, too. This cream-filled cake consists of a simple batter, a layer of ripe peaches and a sweetened, peachinfused cream cheese that bakes down into the cake itself. The result is a creamy dream of a dessert, and the freshness of the peaches keeps the flavor light Perfect summertime picnic fare. There must be something extra peachy about North Carolina, because N.C. cook Laura Young brings to us at another Blue Ribbon favorite: Peach Cobbler! And this isn’t just any cobbler; this is quite possibly the easiest darn peach cobbler you’ll ever come across. It combines fresh OR canned peaches with a few slices of bread and a sugar mixture to create something truly grand. “Every time I make this cobbler I get requests for the recipe,” says Laura. “One of our friends said it was the best peach cobbler he had ever eaten!” Now if you’re more of a pie kind of baker, be sure to check out Annette Kisser’s Sour Cream Peach Pie! This recipe comes with a history as rich as its

flavor. “This is a recipe passed to me by my mother-in-law, Inez Kisser of Fargo, N.D.,” says Annette. “As the youngest of eleven children she found her niche at age nine as the family pie baker. During threshing season this was one of the desserts served to the dozens of men and boys who came to help with the harvest.” With little refrigeration back then, the

Laura Young’s Delicious Peach Cobbler cream would sour and need to be put to good use. And, well, I can’t imagine any better use than this! And finally, if you’re feeling a little feisty, fire up the grill and try tossing on a few fresh peaches! Sound a little odd? Turns out it’s delicious. I had a dear friend make some for me recently. The fast cooking from the grill brings out the juiciness and unique sweetness of the fruit. Simply halve or quarter the peaches, pit them, brush with canola oil and grill! You’ll be amazed at how satisfying grilled fruit - especially peaches - can be. So, now who’s ready for some summer sweets? Join me in making the most of the season’s bounty and pick yourself a bushel of sweetness today. Find, share and print these recipes and your own at the Just A Pinch Recipe Club, too.

most of them are synthesized from petroleum. Researchers have found that additives such as these can trigger asthma, headaches & hives in adults, as well as learning and behavior problems in sensitive children. There are better ways to make food appealing to children without consuming petro-chemicals, according to the Feingold Association, a nonprofit organization helping children with problems such as hyperactivity and attention deficit disorder. Use green plastic shamrocks and other inedible decorations on your natural white cupcakes. Serve lemonade or one of the natural lemon-lime sodas in a green plastic cup, then provide colorful holiday napkins.
