by Kathy Wolfe

001726—4/05

Did you know that one in six people lives on an island? This week, Tidbits takes a little island getaway, bringing you facts about “any land mass completely surrounded by water.” • Not all islands are alike! Continental islands lie on the shelf of a continent, for example, Greenland, which lies on the shelf of North America, and Great Britain on that of Europe. Oceanic islands do not sit on a continental shelf. Most, such as the Hawaiian Islands, were formed by volcanic activity. The Hawaiian Islands, a 137-island chain, are the exposed peaks of a massive undersea mountain range. They were visited by British explorer Captain James Cook in 1778, and he dubbed them the Sandwich Islands after his friend, the Fourth Earl of Sandwich, John Montagu. • Each of the eight main Hawaiian Islands has a nickname. The largest, Hawaii, is of course, the Big Island. Next in size, Maui, is the Valley Isle, followed by Oahu, the Gathering Place. Fourth in size, Kauai is the Garden Isle, Molokai is the Friendly Isle, Lanai is nicknamed the Pineapple Isle, Niihau is the Forbidden Isle, and the smallest of the eight, Kaho’olawe is the Target Isle.

NATURE CENTER HOSTS GUILD’S NATURE’S NOEL Saturday, December 7th from 9 a.m. till Noon Indian Creek Nature Center, 6665 Otis Road SE, CR Spruce up your home for the holidays with fresh greens, gifts and holiday foods at Nature’s Noel. Find decorations made with fresh greens, baked goods, artisan gifts from local vendors, frozen appetizers and tasty frozen soups, even recycled treasures,. But it’s only three hours long, so come early! Presented by the Nature Center Guild, this fundraiser supports programs for adults and children.

• Although Australia is completely surrounded by water, geographically it is considered a continent rather than an island. It’s not only too big to be formally classified as an island, it also sits on its own tectonic plate. Because of this, the title of world’s largest island goes to Greenland, a continental island lying on North America’s continental shelf. • Located between the Arctic and Atlantic Oceans, Greenland has an area of 836,330 square miles, with 81% of that area covered by an ice sheet. If that ice sheet were to melt away completely, the sea level of the world would rise by more than 23 feet. Most of the island’s 57,600 people live along the coasts, the only areas that are ice-free. It’s the most sparsely populated country in the world. Although Greenland’s main export is shrimp, the island is rich in natural resources, including zinc, lead, iron, gold, and platinum. Even diamonds are mined there. • Contrast Greenland’s population of 57,600 in 836,330 square miles with that of Sumatra. Sumatra’s area equals about 21% of Greenland’s, yet this island is home to 50 million people! Located in Indonesia, Sumatra is the world’s sixth largest island, but is the world’s largest volcanic island. • Just south of the Arctic Circle is the second largest volcanic island, Iceland, home to the world’s largest concentration of geysers. Over 14% of its surface is covered by lakes and glaciers, and there are 130 volcanic mountains on the island. Iceland has the secondhighest quality of life in the world, as well as one of the world’s highest life expectancies.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle Avoid the Holiday Crash You may not always look where you are going, but you will always end up going where you are looking. Have you ever secretly desired someone else’s property; a spouse, a job, a house, etc… Once we take our eyes off the road we lose control and spin into a ditch. Along with Holiday cheer comes icy roads and black ice. The grass isn’t greener on the other side of the fence. Before we start playing in someone else’s yard, we need to fertilize our own. Before we park in someone else’s garage, we need to clean ours out and make room for cleaning up what we have. The garage is our mind and our eyes are the garage door opener. Keep your eyes up and focused and you will avoid the Holiday crash. “My eyes are fixed on you, Sovereign LORD; in you I take refuge. Keep me safe from the traps set before me.” Psalm 147:8-9

ISLANDS (continued):

• Sitting in the mouth of the Amazon River in Brazil is Maraj_, the world’s largest island that is completely surrounded by fresh water. It’s about one-third the size of New York state, and compares in size to Switzerland. About 250,000 live on Maraj_, which lies right on the equator. • The official name for a group, cluster, or collection of geographically-related islands is archipelago. Familiar archipelagos include the Canary Islands, the Bahamas, the Caymans, Indonesia, the British Isles, and the Philippines. The Philippines consist of more than 7,100 islands. Total land area is about the same as the state of Arizona, yet its population exceeds 97 million people. About 20 measurable earthquakes occur there daily. Over 170 individual languages are spoken in the Philippines. • The Guinness Book of Records lists Bishop Rock as the world’s smallest island with a building on it. It’s 151 feet long by 52.5 feet wide and is situated at the end of Britain’s Isles of Scilly, 30 miles from England. Bishop has nothing but an uninhabited 160-ft tall lighthouse, completed in 1858. The Rock has been the cause of many shipwrecks over the decades, including one wreck resulting in 2,000 deaths. The lighthouse’s last keepers left in 1992, and it has operated automatically since then. • One of America’s newest national parks is located 60 miles off the coast of southern California. Channel Islands National Park was named such in 1980, and is home to the largest accumulation of blue whales in the world. The last permanent lighthouse in the country was built on the archipelago’s 699-acre Anacapa Island in 1932.

ISLANDS (continued):

• There are 6,852 islands in the nation of Japan. Its capital city Tokyo is the largest metropolitan area in the world with a population of over 30 million people. There are 109 active volcanoes throughout the islands, more than any other country. Its location at the junction of four tectonic plates makes Japan vulnerable to powerful earthquakes and tsunamis. The March, 2011 earthquake, which registered 8.9 on the Richter scale, was the cause of nearly 16,000 deaths. Japan has a 100% literacy rate, one of the world’s highest life expectancies, and a remarkably low crime rate. • From the mid-1700s until the late 1830s, Massachusetts’ Nantucket Island was the whaling capital of the world. About 150 whaling ships made port there during that time. Today this 47.8-sq-mile island is most famous today as a tourist destination. During the summer months the population swells from 10,000 to 50,000. Its home values are listed as among the highest in the U.S. • Not every island is formed by natural forces. Japan’s Kansai International Airport is located on an artificial island in Osaka Bay, a project that began in 1987. Rock and 48,000 concrete blocks form a seawall around the island, for which three mountains were excavated for the layer of earth over the sea floor. The airport opened in 1994. Dubai, United Arab Emirates, is in the midst of creating the Palm Islands, a chain of artificial islands shaped like palm trees, constructed from sand dredged from the bottom of the Persian Gulf.

• An island that has formed on the surface of a coral reef is called a cay, while one that forms by deposits of sediment in a river is called an eyot. A small rocky island, usually too small for habitation, is known as a skerry.

PEARL S. BUCK

December 3rd 2013

December 22– January 19 Hilarity ensues after a communication mix-up at work. The break in the action does wonders for morale, and the pace picks up considerably, Capricorn.

January 20– February 18

If you can do it, you can undo it, Aquarius. Hurry to make things right. A crisis in faith ends with the help of wise friend. Gifts from afar make for a great weekend.

February 19– March 20

Dream on, Pisces. A proposal is not what it seems. Pass on it, or prepare to pay the piper. A game is won at home, and the victory lap begins.

March 21– April 19

Drat, Aries. You have a lot to do, but very little time to do it in. Learn to delegate. The hunt for the perfect gift begins and ends at an out-of-the-way shop.

April 20– May 20

Rumors begin circling with an announcement. Separating fact from fiction will be difficult at best. Lucky for you, Taurus, another announcement will set things straight.

May 21– June 21 Flexibility is key to getting through the holidays. Be willing to accommodate the needs of others, and they will do the same for you, Gemini.

June 22– July 22

No joke, Cancer. All eyes are on you to make a hum-ho event an affair to remember. Never thought of yourself as an entertainer? Well, think again.

July 23– August 22 Excuses, excuses, Leo. You’ve made far too many as of late. Stop running around and start facing up to what is happening. Only then will you find a longterm solution.

August 23– September 22 Trust your instincts, Virgo. There is more to it, and you know it. Don’t agree to the offer until all of the cards are on the table. A party invite arrives.

September 23– October 22

A tickle of the ivories gets a party going, and you’re the star of the show. Enjoy your time in the spotlight, Libra. A run-in with a business associate proves lucrative.

October 23– November 21

Feeling lost, Scorpio? You’re not alone. Put your heads together to figure out the best way to proceed. A special occasion calls for a special treat.

November 22– December 21

Game on, Sagittarius. The competition is heating up at home. You’re going to have to pull out all of the stops if you want to win. An email points to a cause.

The Good Earth won the Pulitzer Prize for literature in 1932 and continues as one of the most popular novels of all time. How much do you know about its author, Pearl S. Buck? Here are some details about this prolific writer. • Pearl Sydenstricker was born to Southern Presbyterian missionaries in 1892. Although they were stationed in China, Pearl was born during a U.S. furlough, but moved to China at three months of age. Her mother had established a dispensary in China, where she ministered to Chinese women, while Pearl’s father spent months in the Chinese country side seeking converts. • Pearl attended a women’s college in Lynchburg, Virginia, then returned to China shortly afterward to care for her ailing mother. After marrying an agricultural economist, the Bucks held teaching positions at China’s Nanking University. • The couple welcomed a daughter, Carol, in 1921, who was a victim of Phenylketonura, or PKU, a genetic disorder that left her profoundly mentally challenged. Carol’s specialized care required large amounts of money, and the Bucks’ financial situation became so perilous that Pearl, a born storyteller, began writing to earn extra income. In the 1920s, she published essays and stories in several magazines. • Times were tense in China in the 1920s, and in 1927, she and her husband narrowly escaped a violent battle known as the Nanking Incident. They were rescued by American gunboats, and spent a year in Japan before moving back to a turbulent China. 
 • Pearl’s first novel East Wind, West Wind, was published when she was 38 in 1930. The following year, The Good Earth, the novel that would bring her international fame, was published. Having lived in China for most of her life, Pearl had plenty of experience in writing the story of impoverished Chinese farmers struggling to survive. The novel was the best-selling book of both 1931 and 1932, and was translated into 30 languages, and was awarded the Pulitzer Prize in 1932. In 1937, the MGM film version, three years in the making, was released and was nominated for five Academy Awards. A 500acre California farm was transformed into a replica of a Chinese farm for the movie. Years later, the book regained popularity when it was chosen by television host Oprah Winfrey for Oprah’s Book Club. • Two books followed to make The Good Earth into a trilogy, Sons in 1932, and A House Divided in 1935. • Needing better care for her daughter, Pearl, single after 18 years, moved to the U.S. permanently in 1933. She returned to school and earned a second Master’s degree. All the while she continued to write and in 1938, she became the first American women to win the Nobel Prize for Literature. Most of her writing featured China as the setting. • Pearl later married an editor from her publisher’s company, and the couple adopted six children during their 25 years together. Over the course of her life, she published over 70 books, story collections, an autobiography, poetry, children’s books, and a cookbook. When she passed away in 1973, her tombstone of her own design featured her name inscribed in Chinese characters.

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel ● On Dec. 8, 1542, in Linlithgow Palace in Scotland, a daughter is born to James V, the dying king of Scotland. Named Mary, she was the only surviving child of her father and ascended to the Scottish throne when the king died just six days after her birth. ● On Dec. 2, 1777, legend has it that Philadelphia housewife and nurse Lydia Darragh single-handedly saves the lives of Gen. George Washington and his Continental Army. She made notes when she overheard the British planning a surprise attack and got them to Washington. ● On Dec. 6, 1921, The Irish Free State, comprising four-fifths of Ireland, is declared, ending a five-year Irish struggle for independence from Britain. The Irish Free State was renamed Eire, and is now called the Republic of Ireland. ) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Social Security Changes in 2014

Beginning in January, the Social Security cost of living allowance (COLA) is going up 1.5 percent for its 57 million beneficiaries. For those who receive an average benefit of $1272, the increase will be a whopping $19 per month. Other changes for 2014 include: Income subject to Social Security taxation will increase to $117,000 from $113,700. Above that amount, and your contribution to Social Security does not go up. For those who are less than full retirement age (which is age 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954) and receive Social Security benefits, the limit on earnings will be $15,480. Income above that will see deductions of benefits of $1 for every $2 earned. Those who turn age 66 in 2014 will have an earned income cap of $41,400, with $1 deducted for every $3 earned over that amount for the months until they reach full retirement age. Those who are the full retirement age for the whole year will have no benefits deducted for any income earned. Medicare’s Part B premium, however, will stay the same as in 2013, which is $104.90 (for those with incomes of less than $85,000). If you received the email saying the premium will go up to $247 per month, don’t worry. The email was a fake and has been on the Internet for three years now. Let’s look at what that $19 Social Security COLA increase will buy: Onethird of a week’s worth of groceries on the USDA Moderate Food Plan. You can stretch that to a half week of groceries if you stick to the Thrifty Food Plan (and eat more potatoes and less meat). Don’t spend it all in once place.

Q: Can I paint rooms during the wintertime? My friend says it’s impossible to do because the weather is too cold. What do you say? -- Jeanine H., via email A: It’s not impossible, but in colder climates it certainly can be more difficult. The main reason is that rooms need to be well-ventilated when painting; otherwise the room is hazardous to be in. It’ll need to continue to be ventilated while it’s drying, in order to keep humidity down, which means the windows will be wide open in the middle of winter. In more-temperate regions, painting in winter really isn’t a problem. Not only can you ventilate a room without getting frozen out of the house, but the paint cures more evenly. In below-freezing temperatures, a latex-based paint may not dry as evenly or cure as well. But painters do interior work in cold weather all the time. How do they do it without sealing off the room from the rest of the house? You could take a few hints from them. Professional painters often use a reverseair system. Rigged into one of the windows, it pulls air from the room to the outside of the house at a constant rate, so that fumes don’t seep into the rest of the house -- and the room being painted stays at a comfortable temperature. Even without such a system, you can paint a room by setting up a fan in the window pointing outward, and keeping your heating system registers open in the the room. Wear a respirator mask when painting to avoid breathing in fumes, and keep children out. If you need to add more than one coat or the paint seems to be taking longer than usual to dry, consider bringing in a dehumidifier to remove more moisture from the air and speed drying.

● OK, I’ll say it: I love tradition, but sometimes I want to mix it up for Thanksgiving dinner. I keep the main dishes the same as they always are, but I add my drama in the details. For instance, mix your choice of herbs into a stick of softened butter. Using plastic baggie with the corner cut off or a decorating bag, pipe the herbed butter onto a butter dish. Refrigerate and enjoy the oohs and ahs. -- JoAnn

Three guys are alone on a desert island: an engineer, a biologist and an economist. They are starving and don't have a thing to eat, but somehow they find a can of beans on the shore. The engineer says: "Let's hit the can with a rock until it opens." The biologist has another idea: "No. We should wait for a while. Erosion will do the job." Finally, the economist says: "Let's assume that we have a can opener".

A cooler. Line it with a towel and set your casseroles inside. Then, when they are on the table, stick the cooler back in the kitchen.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver

● On Jan. 31, 2013, it officially became legal for women to wear pants in Paris. Before that, a law on the books only allowed women to wear pants if they were “holding a bicycle handlebar or the reins of a horse,” or if they had requested special permission from the police to dress like men. ● Japanese consumers are now able to buy a smartphone attachment that emits the odors of short ribs, beef tongue and buttered potatoes. Other attachments are also available, with scents such as the ylangylang flower, cinnamon rolls, coffee, corn soup, mint, strawberries, jasmine and curry. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.
