“Can women be casket bearers?”

The Neatest Little Paper Ever Read®

www.tidbitpapers.com

Yes. Women can be, grandchildren can be, anyone you designate can be a casket bearer. What’s cool is it involves the family. Even though it’s very difficult emotionally for people to carry their grandpa or father to the grave it’s also something they can do that nobody else can do for them. I like to relate it to your father carried you, your mother carried you, and you have the opportunity to carry them this last time.

• Consider that the average adult travels around 1,000 miles a year on foot, taking about 10,000 steps per day. A typical 70-yearold human will have walked a distance equivalent to going around the circumference of the earth four times. The feet strike the ground 17,000 times in a 20 mile marathon run, but even a mile of gentle walking subjects the feet to about 80 tons of weight. Feet must be sturdy. • Although 98% of us are born with healthy feet, 80 out of 100 Americans develop foot problems during their lifetime. At any given moment, about 30 million Americans suffer from foot problems, ranging from corns and ingrown nails to club feet and fallen arches.

• Four times as many women as men deal with foot problems, mostly due to high heels. Podiatrists trace 95% of the 500 known foot ailments to ill-designed shoes or improper foot care. Turn the page for more!

• High heels prevent the ankles from absorbing their normal share of the force of walking, shunting it instead to the toes. A three-inch heel puts more than seven times the pressure on the forefoot than a flat shoe. This promotes many foot ailments such as bunions, hammer toes, and neuroma, which is a painful thickening of the nerve that connects the toes. A study of 3,000 surgeries performed on the forefoot found that 87% of the bunion surgeries, 81% of hammer toe surgeries, and 89% of the neuroma surgeries were done on women’s feet. • High heels also affect the knees. A study published in the British medical journal The Lancet showed that high heels cause strain and pressure on the joint that joins the kneecap and the underlying thigh bone. The rotational forces on the inner part of the knee joint were 23 percent higher when women participating in the study walked in heels than when they walked barefoot. • Surprisingly, the big toe has only two bones, while the rest of the toes have three. Although nearly every bone in the body has an official name, one exception is the toe bones. They are known only as “metatarsal digits #1-5.” A fourth-year medical student at Yale decided to undo the injustice by bestowing names on the toes. He called them porcellus fori, porcellus domi, porcellus carnivorus, porcellus nonvoratus, and porcellus plorans domun. In Latin, these names translate as little pig at market, baby pig at home, meat-eating piglet, small pig that has not eaten, and piggy crying all the way home. Some orthopedic surgeons have picked up his names, but doctors have not yet gone hog wild over the idea.

STRANGE BUT TRUE by Samantha Weaver ● You might be surprised at some of the seemingly innocuous things that arouse passions in a group of people. Take the venerable 1960s television show “Mr. Ed,” for example. Evidently, an evangelist named Jim Brown took issue with the show’s theme song, claiming that when played backward, the tune contains the message “the source is Satan” and “someone sang this song for Satan.” His preaching on the subject was so persuasive that members of a church in Ironton, Ohio, made a bonfire of recordings of the song.

• Not surprisingly, the place on the body where the skin is thickest is the heel of the foot, where it’s about 1/16th of an inch thick. Compare that to the thinnest skin on the body— the eyelids— at 2/1000 of an inch. Although the heel is the area on the body that is least sensitive to pain, it’s also the sweatiest area. The 125,000 sweat glands in a single foot can excrete as much as half a pint of sweat per day. Research done at the University of Miami centered on foot odor. How does a research team study foot odor? First you get a bunch of volunteers to sit with their feet in plastic bags. Then you have the laboratory staff sniff the feet. They discovered that people with foot odor had large numbers of a certain bacteria on their bodies— the same type of bacteria found in Limburger cheese. They also discovered that antibiotics can reduce the number of bacteria, and thus improve the smell of feet. Why some people carry large amounts of this bacteria and others don’t is still unknown, but is under investigation. It could be differences in a person’s sweat or pH balance. Since it’s not a good idea to take antibiotics to reduce odor, this valiant research team is now trying to find ways to keep bacteria from sticking to the skin, to prevent bacteria from getting a “foothold.” Around 80 million Americans suffer from smelly feet. • One company called Sweet Feet combated foot odor with scented socks. Impregnated with various scents such as powder, citrus, strawberry, and peach, the footsie socks threw off a long-lasting fragrance. The odor remained even through many launderings and the socks cost about $20 per pair. • Many people do not wear the correct shoe size for their feet. Often this is because people stick to the size they were measured for when young and fail to realize that their feet change shape.

If ignorance is bliss, then tourists are in a constant state of euphoria.

Women in History

JEANA YEAGER

• Jeana Yeager was born in 1952 in Texas. She studied drafting in high school, a skill that would later serve her well. At the age of 26 she earned her pilot’s license. She was most interested in becoming a helicopter pilot, but then became interested in high performance aircraft. She moved to California and got a job designing experimental planes. • In 1980, she met Dick Rutan at an air show in California, where he was a featured aerobatic flyer. Rutan and his brother ran their own aircraft company, designing new planes. Rutan hired Yeager to work with him, and they later fell in love. Over the next several years, she set several speed records as a test pilot for the planes Rutan was designing. • In 1981, Yeager and Rutan began working to design a plane that could circle the globe without landing or refueling. Yeager named the plane Voyager. Because it was a private endeavor, the plane was built using volunteer labor and donations. As it was being designed and constructed, Yeager underwent extensive training in ocean navigation and communications, expanded her flying credentials, and became one of the first civilians ever to complete an Air Force water survival training course.

New phone app. You know there is a lot of money to be made by developing a useful phone app. With the fitness craze and everyone being weight conscious I put my brain cells to work on the project. I want to announce the Newest phone app available for tracking progress in your fitness program. It is called the Personal Scale App. This is how it works. You program your I-phone or Droid with my new app. Place it on a hard surface like a tile floor and then stand on it. The phone will record your current weight and display it on the screen. My only problem is it only seems to work once.

• On December 14, 1986, the Voyager took off from Edwards Air Force Base in California, with Yeager and Rutan stationed in a cockpit about the size of a telephone booth. The wings, which were heavily loaded with fuel, scraped the pavement upon take-off and were damaged, but not badly enough to abort the mission. Traveling across the Pacific and Indian Oceans, over Africa, and then across the Atlantic before crossing the U.S., the flight was full of peril. They used much fuel avoiding a hurricane. • Libya refused to allow access to air space, requiring an unexpected detour. A fuel pump failed mid-flight causing an engine to shut down. Moreover, the craft was extremely difficult to fly. Unstable in the air, it required constant attention to keep it aloft. Constant engine noise left both pilots with hearing damage by the end of the flight, and chronic fatigue dogged their every moment. • Nine days after it had taken off, Voyager landed at Edwards Air Force, having traveled 26,366 miles at an average elevation of 11,000 feet. Whereas 3,500 people had been on hand to see them take off, about 55,000 people showed up to see them land, along with 23 news cameras. Yeager and Rutan had traveled 28,000 miles at an average speed of 116 mph. When they landed, they had eight gallons of fuel to spare, enough to have taken them only another 100 miles. • From a record standpoint, Rutan and Yeager became the first aviators to circumnavigate the globe nonstop, without landing or refueling in mid-flight. They also endured the longest flight up to that time, doubling the previous flight record for distance. President Ronald Regan awarded them with Presidential Citizen Medals of Honor, which had been bestowed only 16 times previously. They also received the Collier Trophy, aviation’s highest honor, and many other prestigious awards. • After the flight, Rutan and Yeager went on an extensive speaking tour in an attempt to raise enough money to pay off some of the debts incurred during the mission.

Look for puzzle answers on page 8.

• The Voyager is now displayed in the Smithsonian Institute next to other historic aircraft. Unfortunately, the relationship between Yeager and Rutan ended shortly after their historic flight, and they went their separate ways.

Tools 4 life By DR. Jim coyle Words are Powerful

Do you remember when you were taught the famous comeback as a kid: “sticks and stones may break my bones…..…………?” WRONG. “Handle them carefully, for words have more power than atom bombs.” -Pearl Strachan I’m sure you have been the recipient of words of wisdom, words of encouragement, and/or words of praise. I am also sure you’ve been the recipient of condescending words, words that hurt, words that destroy our spirit, or words that make us angry. Here are three ways we can choose to use words to benefit us and others. • •

Words Received – Words can help us. “Fools think their own way is right, but the wise listen to others .Proverbs 3:15 Words Spoken – Words can have a positive influence. “Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.” Ephesians 4:29 Words Unspoken – Be quiet. “Keep your mouth shut and you will stay out of trouble.” Proverbs 21:23

Windmill Manor Proudly Presents Senior News Line by Matilda Charles

Don’t be Fooled by Fancy Title

A recent report to Congress by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau details the many problems seniors have in determining whether financial advisers are genuine. The long title of the report was “Senior Designations for Financial Advisers: Reducing Consumer Confusion and Risks of the Broker or the Investment Adviser.” It focuses on the special credentials that are used to market senior financial services. Here are a few examples: At least 50 different “senior designation” credentials are used to market advisers’ services, all designed to confuse us. Some of those titles and acronyms sound similar to others or imply a legitimacy that isn’t real, such as “Registered Senior Investment Adviser.” The report says that “all too often, these are just clever marketing ploys to bait the hook.” Those senior designation credentials give the impression that advisers have specialized training or expertise in dealing with the finances of seniors. The report notes that there’s a big difference between a collegelevel course and a weekend seminar. There’s no oversight or enforcement for the use of those designations. Another study showed that, unfortunately, seniors are more likely to rely on someone who uses one of those senior designations. Seniors are the targets of financial marketing, since it’s assumed we have loads of retirement savings, inheritance money and equity. We’re invited to “free lunch” seminars, which are ways to get us in one place to sell us financial products. To get help if you question the “senior designations” you’re shown, call the CFPB at 855-411-2372. To report violators, call the whistleblower line at 855-695-7974, or send an email to whistleblower@consumerfinance. gov. The CFPB even has an Office of Financial Protection for Older Americans, so it has our best interests in mind.

THE FICTIONAL MAJOR MARTIN • In World War II, the Allied forces decided to start re-taking Europe by wresting the island of Sicily out of the hands of the Axis. British Naval Intelligence concluded that enemy forces needed to be misled into believing the Allies were planning on storming the nearby island of Sardinia. Axis troops would be massed there, leaving Sicily unprotected. The question was how to fool the Germans. Thus was born one of the more unusual plots of World War II. The plan was to find a corpse, outfit it with fake ID, plant important documents on it that divulged the “secret” plans to invade Sardinia, then put it where the Germans would find it. • Allied operatives in charge of the project secured the body of a soldier who had died of pneumonia. They made up fake ID papers which named him as Major William Martin. Two letters from Major Martin’s “girlfriend” named Pam were handwritten and placed in his pocket, along with a snapshot of a woman. In the letter she talked about their upcoming wedding, and they placed a bill from a jewelry store for an engagement ring in the billfold. A bill for an overnight stay at the Naval and Military Club was included, dated the day before the Major was to meet his unfortunate “death.” His pockets were filled with coins, keys, a pencil, cigarettes, matches, and theater ticket stubs. A watch was placed on one wrist. An ID tag was placed on a chain around his neck. A wallet in his back pocket contained two pictures of “Pam,” a book of stamps with two missing, and some money. Then they attached a briefcase to his body with a chain of the same type bank messengers use when carrying valuables. This would prevent the briefcase from floating away from the body, as well as alerting the Germans to the importance of the corpse. • Fake letters from high ranking officers were placed in the briefcase. The letters discussed how it could be possible to make the Germans believe the next attack would be on Sicily, leaving Sardinia unprotected. • Next they had to get the body to the Germans, by making it appear as if his plane crash-landed into the sea. They knew that a German secret agent was stationed at Huelva, Spain. So they commissioned a submarine to carry the body to the coast of Huelva and release it. The body was packed in dry ice to prevent decomposition on the submarine. Major Martin was wrapped in a life jacket before being released to be sure the body would float. The plan kicked into action. • A Spanish fisherman found the body. Military officers were summoned. A Naval officer took the briefcase and all personal documents. A doctor, finding fluid in the lungs (due to pneumonia) announced that the death had been due to drowning. The body was turned over to British diplomats, and they arranged a military funeral. “Pam” sent flowers for the grave. The British asked that Major Martin’s briefcase be returned, and eventually it was. But examination showed that all the “secret” documents had been removed and then replaced. • German officials forwarded copies of the documents all the way up to Hitler. German troops went to reinforce Sardinia. Submarines moved out of Sicilian waters. • On July 10, 1943, the Allies invaded Sicily incurring only slight losses. Even after the invasion started, the Germans were convinced it was not a legitimate attack but merely a diversionary tactic. Allies liberated Sicily in only 39 days and used it as a springboard for the invasion of Italy. Major Martin served his country well.
