A dentist decided to rent some extra office space in his suite to a manicurist. It didn’t work out, though, because after a few months, they were fighting tooth & nail.

TEETH TIDBITS® CONSIDERS

by Janet Spencer Blood is 83% water, and bones are 25% water. Tooth enamel, the hardest substance in the human body, is only 2% water. Come along with Tidbits as we take a look at teeth! FAST FACTS • The most widespread human disease is tooth decay, affecting 98% of Americans.

• There are over 100,000 dentists in the U.S., and they see a million patients every day. • Every day, dentists put 80 lbs. of gold in American mouths and fill 1/2 million cavities. 75 tons of gold are used each year for filling people’s teeth, and about 5% of all gold mined is used in dentistry. • For every 100 inductees into the U.S. Army, more than 600 cavities have to be filled; 112 teeth have to be pulled; and 40 bridges, 21 crowns, 18 partial dentures, and one full denture have to be installed.

• Sugar does not cause tooth decay. Bacteria feeding on the sugar that remains in the mouth too long is what causes tooth decay. There are between 50 and 100 million bacteria in the average human mouth.

• The type of candy that’s best at promoting cavities in teeth is dark chocolate or fudge. • Chewable vitamin C tablets can erode tooth enamel if used on a long-term basis. DENTAL HISTORY

• Archeologists found the remains of an Egyptian man whose perfectly preserved gold bridgework, installed 4,500 years ago, is the oldest known example of restorative dentistry. • The first electric dental drill was patented in 1875. Prior to that, dental drills had been powered by foot treadles. Before foot treadles, cavities were treated by putting a drop of “vitriol” in them. Vitriol is now known as sulfuric acid, and it killed the nerves in the tooth. • In the 1800s false teeth were made from wood or ivory, but they didn’t last long. A revolutionary dentist named Parmly found that when real teeth were used to replace missing teeth, they worked much better. The trouble was where to find real teeth. The war of 1812 was raging at the time, so Parmly solved the problem by visiting the site of the Battle of Bridgewater shortly after the battle ended. With his brother to assist him, he collected thousands of teeth from fallen soldiers. He used them to fashion dentures guaranteed to last a lifetime. • The Florence Manufacturing Company of Massachusetts was one of the first companies to produce toothbrushes in America in 1885. • The natural bristles of early toothbrushes were taken from the necks and shoulders of swine, especially pigs living in colder climates like Siberia and China. The first nylon bristles were introduced in 1938.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle Spread the LOVE not the Offense One of the greatest tools of wisdom is recorded in Proverbs 17:9 “He who covers over an offense spreads love, but whoever spreads the matter separates close friends” One of Noah’s sons found him in an embarrassing spot after a tough night. The son went out to spread the offense (gossip) when his 2 brothers shut him up and covered their dad’s shame with an act of love. The consequence of spreading someone’s mistake is never good. The immediate gratification can make me feel good or look better as I beat my chest and wave my flag. The reality is by repeating the matter I am distancing myself from my close friends. Once I learn to look at others as being more important than me I see them differently. Rather than looking down on someone I look up at them. Am I spreading love or am I spreading the offense?

•George Washington, who lost all of his teeth at an early age, actually had several sets of false teeth. None were made of wood, which is a popular misconception. Two of them were made of hippopotamus ivory and gold, fashioned by Dr. John Greenwood, who was one of the most prominent dentists of the day. They had Open Year Round! springs in them which pressed them firmly against the top and bottom of his mouth. Washington had to actively close his mouth to keep his teeth together. One of the denture sets is on display at the Samuel Harris National Museum of Dentistry in Baltimore. The other set was donated to the University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore, which is the oldest dental college in the world. They in turn loaned the dentures to the Smithsonian Institute in 1976 for display at the bicentennial exhibit. They were stolen from the Smithsonian on June 19, 1981, probably for their gold content. The owner of the Carnegie Deli in New York offered a reward of a year’s worth of delicatessen food for their safe return, no questions asked. However, the dentures have never been recovered. FAST FACTS • In 1733, dentures gave rise to an important legal test case. John Zenger, editor of the New York Weekly Journal, said about Governor William Cosby that he had loathsome false teeth and an unclean mouth. The governor sued for libel. Zenger’s lawyer maintained the comments were not libelous unless it could be proven that the comments were wrong. The jury must have agreed that the governor had loathsome false teeth, because they found Zenger not guilty. • Clark Gable had no teeth, but wore dentures. “Gone With the Wind” co-star Vivian Leigh complained that he had terrible breath.

TOOTH FAIRY MUSEUM • When in Deerfield, Illinois, visit the Tooth Fairy Museum to see a Tooth Fairy treasure trove including Tooth Fairies made out of everything from paper mache to clay to fabric. There are tooth fairy angels, pixies, ballerinas, and even a Tooth Fairy bag lady. Of course there are a lot of Tooth Fairy boxes designed for children to put their teeth into in order to receive their money. One is shaped like a set of pink gums and is designed so that each tooth lost is placed in the appropriate slot, reproducing the child’s smile. • Collecting money for lost teeth is an American habit which became popular around 1900. At that time the going rate per tooth was about 12 cents. Now, it’s at least a dollar per tooth lost.

YOU BE THE JUDGE

• A dental hygienist who happened to be a born-again Christian found that when she had people in the dental chair it was a perfect time to save their souls. Patients resented this; the dentist she worked for forbad it; but she continued the practice anyway. She was fired. She sued, saying she’d only been exercising her right to free speech. If you were the judge, how would you rule? The judge disagreed with the hygienist and supported her dismissal because, “a dentist has the right to expect his hygienist... not to add more discomfort to a patient’s already uncomfortable situation.”

ALFRED E. NEUMAN

• An ad for a dental clinic in Topeka, Kansas in the 1920’s featured a grinning boy with red hair, freckles and a missing front tooth. The boy was not worried a bit, because his dentist was Painless Romine. The picture of the grinning boy also appeared in ads for shoes and soft drinks. In the 1950’s the boy was adopted by Mad Magazine, and named Alfred E. Neuman. His slogan became, “What, me worry?” In 1956 he was even featured as a write-in candidate for president, but lost.

Why is a toothless dog like a tree? It has more bark than bite.

● On Oct. 6, 1683, encouraged by William Penn’s offer of 5,000 acres of land in the colony of Pennsylvania and the freedom to practice their religion, the first Mennonites arrive in America aboard the Concord. The German Mennonites were founded in Europe by Menno Simons in the 16th century. ● On Oct. 2, 1780, British Major John Andre, an accomplice of Benedict Arnold, is hanged as a spy by U.S. military forces in Tappan, N.Y. Andre wrote a letter to Gen. George Washington asking that he be executed by firing squad, that being a more “gentlemanly” death than hanging. ● On Oct. 4, 1861, President Abraham Lincoln observes a balloon demonstration near Washington, D.C. Both Confederate and Union armies experimented with using balloons to gather military intelligence in the early stages of the war, but the balloons proved to be dangerous and impractical for most situations.

Senior News Line by Matilda Charles

Obamacare Scams Just Hang Up It’s one thing to read about how good scammers can be -- and quite another to experience it yourself. I recently received a phone call trying to get me to divulge personal information to sign up for Obamacare. After I got over my shock that scammers were actually calling me, I decided to play along for a few minutes. First, they knew my name. That wasn’t too surprising, but when they told me I only had a short time to get signed up for Obamacare or I’d lose my Medicare, I realized how dangerous these people are. The trick they were pulling was to combine the new Obamacare signups with Medicare’s open enrollment, as through the two have anything to do with each other. Yes, they both start in October, but that’s all they have in common. Specifically, I was told that if I signed up with them, I would receive my new insurance card for a small fee. They asked if I have a credit card. I said yes. They asked for the number, talking very rapidly, not even listening to my answers. Their main goal was to intimidate me into giving my credit-card number. When I refused, they said my Medicare was going to be canceled for not signing up for Obamacare, and I could go to jail. It was a bit intimidating, even though I knew what they were doing, and I realized how skilled they were. If you get a similar call, hang up. Don’t even listen. No one from the government is going to call you about signing up for Obamacare or the Medicare open enrollment. If you get a call like this, call the Federal Trade Commission at 1-877-382-4357 and file a complaint.

A senior’s health crisis passes, and you have much to celebrate, Capricorn. Bring everyone together for some food and fun. Time is ticking on a project.

January 20– February 18

Unbelievable, Aquarius. A friend bails on you again. It’s not like them to be so irresponsible. Find out what is going on and do your best to get them back on track.

February 19– March 20

June 22– July 22

Fitness goals are re-evaluated,& new strategies are implemented. A face from the past revives an old dream. Go for it, Cancer. A memo makes an interesting point.

July 23– August 22 Cooler temperatures create the ideal backdrop for romantic adventures. Whisk away that special someone. Destiny calls. Do you hear it, Leo?

August 23– September 22

Money talks, Pisces. Don’t dismiss the value of a dollar, especially as it pertains to your talents. You could always use more cash. A deadline is extended

Success is a relative term. If you’re happy with where you’re headed, Virgo, that’s all that matters. Cast away the doubts of others and get a move on.

March 21– April 19

September 23– October 22

Magic is in the air. Can’t you feel it, Aries? Whatever you’ve been avoiding, now is the time to confront it and deal with it. The results will astound you.

April 20– May 20

Seriously, Taurus, the timing is off. Move the event to another day. A taste of the good life motivates a friend to change career paths. Be supportive.

May 21– June 21 Green is in, Gemini. Take a look around your home and find some ways to implement the three R’s. Mother Earth and your bank account are counting on you to do your part.

A situation arises at work, and the outcome is iffy at best. Do what you can to help, Libra, but don’t go over-board. The planning for a special event begins..

October 23– November 21

You’re a hard worker, Scorpio, and your home is proof of it. There is no shame, however, in calling in a pro now and then—especially if you are in over your head.

November 22– December 21

Extreme conditions call for extreme measures, Sagittarius. Think outside of the box and make a plan of attack. You have one shot to get it right.

When Patsy Sherman was in high school, she took an aptitude test to see what kind of career she would be good at. In 1947, boys and girls took separate tests. Her test showed that a good career for her would be as a housewife. Patsy did NOT want to be a housewife. So she insisted that they let her take the aptitude test for boys. This version said she would be good at dentistry or chemistry. She liked those ideas better. • In college she studied math and chemistry, with only a few other women in her classes. After graduating in 1952, she got a part time temp job with 3M in Minnesota as a chemist. She intended to work for 3M just until she had enough money to attend medical school. Instead, she stayed in her “temp” job until 1992 largely due to a “fortuitous” accident. • The project she was assigned to work on was to develop a sturdy synthetic rubber that would stand up to regular contact with jet fuels, which caused the existing rubber hoses to disintegrate. One day a small bottle of a synthetic latex compound fell to the floor, shattering and splattering an assistant’s tennis shoes with a milky substance similar to sap. They tried to wipe it off the shoe. Soap, water, alcohol, and other solvents were tried but they all just rolled off. The compound didn’t change the look or feel of the canvas shoe, and as the days passed, the shoe became dirtier and dirtier– except for the spots where the chemical had landed, which remained white and clean. This bore more investigation.

• Dipping some fabric in the compound, Patsy and her research partner Sam Smith found that it repelled both oil and water, and would allow nothing to penetrate the fabric. The chemical surrounded each fiber in the fabric with an invisible fluorochemical shield which was impervious to water, oils, and dirt.

• Permanent press fabrics were just being introduced, but stains tended to be permanent in permanent press. Something that protected fabric from being stained would be very valuable. This particular formula was too gummy to use on fabrics, so Patsy was hired full time to work with Sam to develop a version that was thinner. It took them three years to come up with the product dubbed Scotchgard, and both Pasty’s and Sam’s name appear on the patent. • Once they had the formula, the company needed to figure out how to manufacture and package it. (Patsy could not enter the textile mills where her products were being tested because no women were allowed.) Scotchgard was put on the market in 1956. Shortly after it was introduced, the manager of the manufacturing plant informed 3M that there was “a year’s supply” of Scotchgard ready to go. Within a few days, the entire stock was sold. Scotchgard became one of their most profitable products and funded 3M’s development into a global industry. • A rubbery molecule of Scotchgard is made of fluorine, carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen. One side of the molecule is sticky, causing it to cling to fabrics, and the other end is slippery, making it repel stains. Not only does it keep fabrics clean, but it also makes them more durable. Eventually around 100 different products were developed. • Patsy and her partner Sam Smith patented over a dozen other inventions, including an “optical brightener” which gives detergent companies the right to say that their product makes clothes “whiter than white.” Patsy eventually became manager of Technical Development and retired from 3M in 1992. She served on the board of the National Inventors Hall of Fame and was inducted into the Minnesota Inventors Hall of Fame in 1983. She died in 2008.

After two steamboat trials in France, one a failure and one a success, Fulton returned to America in 1806 and proceeded to build his famed steamboat the Clermont that successfully plied the Hudson River in New York. The Clermont’s first significant trip was from New York to Albany, a distance of approximately 150 miles.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● It was Israeli politician Abba Eban who made the following sage observation: “A consensus means that everyone agrees to say collectively what no one believes individually.” ● Moose are so nearsighted that they have been known to try to mate with cars. ● According to tradition, a bride whose dress is made of silk will have good fortune in her marriage. A woman who wears velvet to her wedding will face poverty, and a satin wedding gown will bring bad luck. ● On average, there are 50,000 earthquakes around the world every year. ● Beloved composer Frederic Chopin died in 1849 in France. He was terrified of being buried alive, so at his request, after his death his heart was removed, preserved in alcohol and returned to his native country, Poland. Once in Warsaw, the urn containing his heart was sealed into a pillar of the Holy Cross Church with the inscription, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” ● Spanish explorers named California after a mythical island of Amazon women ruled by a warrior queen named Califa.

Q: I’ve got a squeaky-floor problem, but it’s a little bit weird. When people walk along the ground floor I can hear wood squeaking against the pipes that are down in the crawlspace. Is this a risk to the pipes? How can I fix the squeaking noise? -- Jim in Buford, Ga. A: You won’t know for sure without getting into the crawlspace and visually inspecting the pipes and the underside of the floor, including the joists. The pipes running along the crawlspace are likely suspended from the floor joists. If they’re in contact with the joists, then you might hear the faint screech of wood across metal as the joists rub against the pipes. How serious is the problem? It depends. If the floor and joists are in good condition, then you can reposition the pipe very slightly so it doesn’t contact the wood. Do this by lowering or loosening the existing pipe hanger slightly, or replacing it with another pipe hanger or a plastic pipe strap. You must support the pipe in place as you do any loosening or replacing of the hangers. It should not move more than a few centimeters in any direction, and it shouldn’t hang unsupported even during a quick rehanging job. Doing so could cause it to work loose at a pipe joint, and you’ll have a much bigger problem than a squeaky floor. To avoid this you can either rig up a substitute -- a sturdy rope or cloth tacked to the joist and wrapped underneath the pipe, for example -- or keep the old pipe hanger in place as you attach a new pipe hanger just a little lower. Once you’ve hammered the ends of the new hanger into the side of the joist, carefully work the old hanger loose as a helper holds the pipe in place. Gently lower the pipe into the new hanger. Repeat at other hanger locations along the run where the pipe contacts the joist. If, on inspection, you see that the joist is not in good condition -- it’s sagging, or you detect wood rot or water damage -- contact a flooring or foundation specialist. Damaged joists can cause problems throughout the house, so you’ll want that problem addressed immediately. HOME TIP: Talcum powder can serve as a quick, if temporary, way to stop squeaks between floorboards.
