A “REALITY” CHECK

by Blue Sullivan Through programming successes like “American Idol” (still the most watched series on television in the United States), “reality TV” has grown to be a huge part of the programming broadcast on both cable and network television. The emergence of reality programming as one of the most successful and profitable genres found on television would seem to suggest this is a relatively new invention. Actually, it stretches all the way back to the 1940s. Here we’ll recount a little about the history of this style of show, along with some things you might not know about reality programs in America and worldwide. • In 1948, the first “reality show” aired. It was Allen Funt’s “Candid Camera,” a precursor to MTV’s popular prank show “Punk’d” (currently hosted by pop superstar Justin Bieber and a revolving rotation of young entertainers). Unlike “Punk’d,” which focuses on pranks played on celebrities, “Candid Camera” featured mild pranks played on everyday individuals, and captured their reactions. turn the page for more!

TOOLS 4 LIFE BY DR JIM COYLE Fear or Faith, Your Choice Picture a train track with 2 tunnels ahead. One tunnel is a tunnel of fear (False Expectations Appearing Real) and the second tunnel is a tunnel of faith (Fear Aint In This House).  The walls inside the tunnel govern our thoughts and the direction our thoughts lead us. Both tunnels lead to somewhere and have significant results that impact our life. Let’s look at a few of the differences. •         Faith leads to freedom and fear leads to bondage. •         Faith leads to mobility and fear leads to paralysis. •         Faith leads to hope and fear leads to despair. •         Faith leads to light at the end of the tunnel and fear leads to darkness. Where you anchor your thoughts is your choice. I choose faith. How about you?

We’re Having A Kitten Shower! August 11, 2012 Noon to 4 pm 2109 North Towne Lane NE Cedar Rapids It’s kitten season once again, and the CRACC shelter has dozens needing good homes. This fundraiser is to promote our adorable furry feline adoptables, raise money to support their special veterinary needs and foster care, and to purchase much needed supplies. Event includes a HUGE bake sale, raffle, kitten socialization, refreshments, and fun activities for the kids.

• “Candid Camera” actually emerged from another “reality show” from another medium, a 1947 radio version with the same concept called “Candid Microphone.” • “Candid Camera” was followed after each broadcast by another pioneer of reality TV, the Ted Mack talent search show, “Original Amateur Hour.” Ted Mack’s show televised amateurs competing before a live audience, who chose the winner. It was the first example of public voting determining the outcome of a TV show, predating “Idol” by decades. • The longest running reality show in the United States is “Cops,” which has been gracing our sets since 1989. • MTV likes to tout its series “The Real World” (a success since the early ‘90s and still going strong) as the father of what most think of as modern reality TV, but that distinction probably goes to PBS’ “An American Family.” The 1973 series followed a family as they went through a divorce. • “An American Life” was so influential that it inspired a well-reviewed cinematic satire by comedian and filmmaker, Albert Brooks. 1979’s “Real Life” follows a filmmaker (played by Brooks) who is so inspired by the success of the PBS series that he tries to replicate it with a different family, with unexpectedly dire results. • The incidence of reality programming on TV today is higher than it has ever been. One in four programs in primetime is reality based. In addition to its popularity with audiences, the genre is popular with TV executives for its cost-saving benefits. The average reality show costs about $500,000 per episode, compared to $2 million for a sitcom.

A “REALITY” CHECK (continued):

• Although reality TV has been a viable genre for over six decades, it’s taken a while for the Emmys to take notice. The first award in the genre, “Outstanding RealityCompetition Series,” was given in 2003 to “The Amazing Race.” • In 2008, an additional category was added honoring “Best Reality TV Show Host.” It went to “Survivor” host Jeff Probst, who has since become a repeat winner in the category. • Reality shows aren’t just inf luential in the United States. Singer Susan Boyle’s 2009 audition on the UK’s popular show “Britain’s Got Talent” has been viewed 120 million times on YouTube. • Reality television has also reached the Muslim world. In 2010, a show called “Imam Muda” pitted contestants in a variety of challenges. These challenges included tests of Islamic theory, the counseling of teenagers and the recitation of the Quran. The winner received a job as an Imam, along with a free scholarship in Saudi Arabia and a new car. • The most popular reality show in the United States is “American Idol,” but few know its origins. “Idol” was created in the ‘90s by Simon Fuller. Fuller rose to prominence as the manager, and some would say manufacturer, of pop sensation The Spice Girls. He was so important to the group’s success that the British press dubbed him “Svengali Spice.” When the group suddenly fired him, Fuller devised a way to create a group over which he had full control, thus “Idol” was born. • “American Idol” was actually supposed to be an online show when Fuller created it in 1997. However, the lack of high-speed internet in most homes made the idea unfeasible, so Fuller went to television to broadcast his idea instead.

A “REALITY” CHECK (continued):

• “American Idol” is actually a spin-off of a similar program in Great Britain called “Pop Idol.” After agreeing to be one of the judges on the upstart American version, Simon Cowell nearly quit in the last week before the first episode aired. Cowell worried that his confrontational, distinctly British personality would not work with American audiences. • In the nonfiction book “American Idol: The Untold Story,” author Richard Rushfield interviewed Cowell about his nearly quitting the show before it ever aired. Cowell said, “I remember calling my lawyer, and I said, ‘I don’t want to do it. I haven’t signed the contract. Get me out of it.” • Fortunately, Fox producers managed to talk Cowell out of abandoning the show. They convinced him he’d have “free rein” and wouldn’t need to alter his abrasive persona for American viewers. One other judge did back out at the last moment, however. Originally, the show was to feature four hosts, but a Los Angeles radio DJ named Stryker quit the show at the last minute. • Stryker was worried the “cheesy singing contest” would hurt his image. With no time to recast, the show decided to go with three judges instead. In an ironic coincidence, Stryker later served as the house DJ for the daytime talk show hosted by Ellen DeGeneres. DeGeneres was briefly added as a fourth judge on “American Idol.” • “Idol” fixture Ryan Seacrest nearly wasn’t on the show as well. After being chosen for the show, contract negotiations stalled between the network and Seacrest’s father, who served as his manager. Seacrest signed his contract mere hours before the first episode was shot.

● It was German-American painter and lithographer Herm Albright who made the following sage observation: “A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.”

● The 1982 film “Gandhi,” which was awarded eight Oscars, including the one for best picture, used a whopping 300,000 extras. ● Toilet paper was first introduced in the United States in 1857, but the idea didn’t take off -- the paper being offered was evidently too much like the paper in the Sears catalog, which is what most people used at the time.

● It’s well-known that there were shortages of many items during World War II -- and caffeine was one. It was such a problem, in fact, that the chemists at Coca-Cola tried to find a substitute, even experimenting with a derivative of bat guano. The idea was nixed by an executive who was afraid of the public backlash if the truth ever came out.

● The most popular perfume in the world is Chanel No. 5. (c) 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Baby, It’s Hot Outside High summer temperatures can take a toll on seniors. Our circulation isn’t what it used to be. Add in some of the drugs we take that might have a diuretic effect, and dehydration can be a potential danger. The trick is to stay hydrated -- and cool. Staying hydrated means to drink enough water. Other drinks don’t count because sugar and caffeine drinks can be dehydrating in themselves. If you leave the house, take a water bottle with you. Ask your doctor how much you should drink per hour during heat waves, and follow his advice to make sure there is no conflict with any medication you’re on. Set a timer if you need to remember when to drink more water. If you have air conditioning, use it. If you have fans, use those. If you don’t have fans, call your local fire department (on the non-emergency number) or your town offices and ask whether anyone is giving away fans. If you don’t have a way to stay cool, spend a few hours at the library, senior center, the mall or movie theater, especially in the afternoon. Even three or four hours per day in a cool environment can go a long way to keeping you healthy. Close the curtains on the sunny side of the house. Open windows for a breeze. Wear loose, light-colored clothing. If you must wear a hat, be sure the top of your head can breathe. Wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from glare. During heat waves, it’s a good idea to do a phone check on elderly friends to be sure they’re handling the heat. Ask them to check on you a few times a day as well.

Grandma Debs first great-grandchild was born and after a few weeks, when the parents need a break, she was given the job of watching her. “Let me see the little cutie,” begs her friend Betty. “Not yet”, Deb responds. When she again refuses five minutes later Betty has had enough “what are you waiting for?” she fumed. “I’m waiting for her to cry.” “Why is that?” questioned Betty. “Well, because I forgot where I put her!”

USS Arizona Memorial

MOMENTS IN TIME The History Channel

● On July 31, 1715, a hurricane strikes the east coast of Florida, sinking 10 Spanish treasure ships carrying tons of gold and silver coins and killing nearly 1,000 people. About 80 percent of the treasures was recovered within a year, but the rest remained lost until the 1960s. ● On Aug. 5, 1858, the first telegraph line across the Atlantic Ocean is completed. Four British and American vessels met in midocean and successfully laid 2,000 miles of cable, often at a depth of more than 2 miles. ● On Aug. 2, 1876, “Wild Bill” Hickok, one of the greatest gunfighters of the American West, is murdered in Deadwood, S.D. Hickok was playing cards with his back to the saloon door when a young gunslinger named Jack McCall walked into the saloon, approached Hickok from behind, and shot him in the back of the head. ● On July 30, 1976, American Bruce Jenner wins gold in the decathlon at the Montreal Olympics and sets a world record in the event. After his win, Jenner was voted the 1976 AP Male Athlete of the Year. The 1976 Olympics was his last decathlon. ● On Aug. 1, 1981, MTV, the Music Television network, makes its maiden broadcast with the words, “Ladies and gentlemen, rock and roll.” The roughly 80 different videos that made up that first week’s rotation on MTV probably represented nearly every promotional music video then available.

A cornerstone of World War II, the USS Arizona Memorial sees more than a million visitors every year come from around the world to pay reverence to the battle of Pearl Harbor. • Located around two miles west of the Honolulu Airport, the USS Arizona Memorial is on the island of Oahu. • Managed by the National Park Service, the USS Arizona Memorial consists of the actual memorial along with a shore-side visitor center. • During the battle of Pearl Harbor, around 1,777 crewman lost their lives on the USS Arizona, and it is the burial ground of almost all of them. • Of all the ships on Battleship Row affected by the attack, the USS Arizona was the most heavily damaged with four direct hits. A total of 12 ships were sunk and nine damaged during the battle. • Construction of the USS Arizona began in 1914 in New York; the ship was originally called battleship number 39. On the morning of December 7, 1941, Arizona’s first hit came at approximately 8:10 a.m. • The Memorial is part of the WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument, which also includes the USS Oklahoma Memorial, USS Utah Memorial and other historic quays and bungalows. • The Memorial is accessible only by boat, and The Memorial Tour is about 75 minutes long. Tickets are free. They do, however, go rather quickly and usually run out by 12 p.m. on most days. • With the recent revitalization of the Visitor Center, the total area of the Memorial is about 17 acres. The Memorial site itself is 184 feet long. • The Memorial consists of three sectors: the entryway, general area (designed for observation) and the shrine room, which houses a marble wall engraved with the names of all those who lost their lives. • Construction of the Memorial began in 1949, was completed in 1961, and it was dedicated in May 1962. • Alfred Preis was the Memorial’s architect. He says of the Memorial’s design, “The overall effect is one of serenity. Overtones of sadness have been omitted to permit the individual to contemplate his own personal responses... his innermost feelings.” • Visitors frequently drop flowers into the water in honor of those who lost their lives. • A photograph taken of the USS Arizona in the aftermath of the attack was plastered across the front pages of newspapers and soon became the image that most Americans associated with Pearl Harbor. • Although it’s been more than 70 years since the fall of the battleship, oil still leaks from ruptured bunkers. • The Memorial and Pearl Harbor are two of the top tourist destinations in Hawaii. • The Visitor Center is open every day from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is only closed three days a year — Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s Day. • Although security has been heightened since the September 11, 2001, attacks, personal cameras are still allowed, but purses, personal bags, backpacks, etc. are prohibited. Baggage storage is available.

December 22– January 19

June 22– July 22 Overboard is a good word to describe your actions these days, Cancer. You work hard and you play hard, and it begins to take a toll on your body..

July 23– August 22

Memories come flooding back at the sight of an old face. Invite them over for a visit. You’ll share some laughs and learn some interesting tidbits, Capricorn.

The time is right, Leo. Go ahead and pitch your idea. Not only will it be heard, but it will be heard by all the right people. A letter piques your curiosity.

August 23– September 22

February 19– March 20 A decision is made, and it takes you back for a second. Yes, Pisces, the rules have finally relaxed, giving you more leeway. Take advantage of it.

May 21– June 21 You like to live lean, but that could turn out to be a source of conflict if you aren’t careful, Gemini. Treat a loved one and their stuff with respect..

November 22– December 21 Stand back, Sagittarius. A whirlwind comes to town and puts everyone to task. Don’t question—just do— and you will reap the rewards.

Since we spent some time on the stars of reality television, it seems appropriate to allot a little space to the medium that provided them stardom. Here are a few interesting pieces of information about the invention that helped shape the modern age. • The first displayed image on a television was only 30 grainy lines. It was displayed in the year 1926 by J.L. Baird. The digital image currently seen on our TV sets is nearly 35 times as dense. In addition to being a much clearer image, the digital signal of modern televisions is 1,080 lines. • Until late last year, the largest plasma TV available for purchase was a 103-inch plasma sold by Panasonic. It comes at the budget-unfriendly (except for the fabulously wealthy) price of $70,000. ● Monday $5 burger baskets 11-8 • However, Panasonic unveiled an even ● Tuesday $6.99 tacos 11-8 larger$4.00 one well at the most recent Consumer Margaritas 11-8 Electronics Show (known as the “Super ● Thursday, $5 Dozen Wings 4-9 pm Bowl ●of Technology”) in Las Vegas. The Sunday All Day Happy Hour! 152-inch Panasonic 3D Plasma TV can ● All Games In High Definition TVSbe had by the true television connoisseur for $500,000. • July 1, 1941, marked the broadcast of the very first advertisement in TV history. It occurred prior to a baseball game between the Philadelphia Phillies and the Brooklyn Dodgers. • The ad for Bulova Watches was 20 seconds long. The price for those 20 seconds of airtime was only $9. • To put it in perspective, in 2008, a 30-second ad during the Super Bowl broadcast went for $2.7 million. It was the most expensive airtime in the world to that point. • The shortest TV commercial ever produced was for a Canadian music and video channel called MuchMusic. It was created by a Canadian named Tharanga Ramanayake. He produced 12 different versions of the commercial. Each of these was a half a frame long. That’s the equivalent of 1/60th of a second! Even those with the shortest attention spans would have a pretty hard time registering that. The first of these micro-commercials was aired on January 2, 2002. • The current struggle over piracy that has been the focus of the music, movie and gaming industries is by no means the first piracy issue addressed in the courts. In 1970, when Sony first began selling video cassette recorders (or VCRs) capable of recording shows off television, they were sued by the film studios for copyright infringement. Years later, Sony would be vindicated by the Supreme Court. • The two longest-running talk shows in the history of television are found in Ireland and the United States. “The Tonight Show” in America is the longest running, still going strong since first airing in 1954. The second longest is the “Late Late Show” of Ireland. It’s been on since 1962. • The youngest-ever TV host of his own show is in Australia. It’s Luis Tanner, the presenter of “Cooking for Kids with Luis” on that country’s Nickelodeon channel. Though he’s 13 years old now, the first episode of Luis’ weekly show aired when he was just six years old!

Q: My mother-in-law insists on cranking the old manual thermostat all the way to the left on a hot day. She says this will cool the house faster. When it gets too cold inside, she cranks it all the way to the right to turn off the air conditioner. How can I tell her that isn’t the most efficient way to cool a house? -- Damian L., Springfield, Mass.

Saving a Life from a Catastrophe every 11 minutes!

I live

alone

but I’m never alone. .

A: Well, I’m no expert in how to break the news to someone who’s stubbornly insistent on doing things her way. But her method of controlling the air temperature is not only inefficient, it’s a quick way to break the thermostat. In fact, that may already have happened. Your mother-in-law is probably controlling the thermostat this way because she is not getting the comfortable temperature she wants when she sets the thermostat in the typical “comfortable” range of 65 F to 75 F. This may have happened from turning the control gauge too far left or right, or it may simply be an old thermostat in need of replacement. Instead of insisting that she set the thermostat in one place and leave it alone, talk to her about bringing in a heating and cooling contractor to inspect the entire air conditioning system, including the thermostat. And try to persuade her to have the old thermostat replaced with a more accurate, programmable electronic thermostat. The cost savings that result from regularly maintaining a cooling system and keeping the temperature in a comfortable range can be significant. And a programmable thermostat can remove one chore from her to-do list: It can lower or raise the interior temperature of the house at set times, without her having to manually set the thermostat. HOME TIP: During the peak cooling months of summer, change your air conditioner’s air filter once a month.

NOW HERE’S A TIP By JoAnn Derson

● Fireworks can be a lot of fun for the kids, especially sparklers. To keep it safe, use a water bucket for spent sparklers. Another idea is to have an adult stationed at the bucket. The children must “turn in” a used sparkler to get a new one. Kids love to hear the “sizzle” when the hot metal touches the water, their feet won’t get burned on hot sparklers underfoot, and there will be no stray sparklers in the grass hidden for later.

● “Keep a globe or world map in your living room or family room, along with a dictionary. This way, you can look up the meaning or spelling of a word if you hear it on television, and you’ll be able to reference the map for places mentioned. I consult mine often.” -- P.A. in Florida ● “I use the large pails of kitty litter. They have a lid that can be removed completely, but also have a pour spout. I save my empties to collect rainwater. I remove the lid and set them out to catch water when it rains, then put the lid on so that the water does not attract mosquitoes. I use it to water my flowers between storms.” -- A Reader, via email ● “Purchase a variety of wooden frames from secondhand stores or tag sales, and paint them all one color. It makes a statement when you hang them all close together on a wall. We created a nice large display this way, and it was very inexpensive to do.” -- E.M. in Arizona ● Create your own charging station: Find a wooden box large enough to hold a multistrip power connection and pretty enough to sit on the counter. Drill one hole in the side to fit the plug. In the top of the box, create holes through which you can fit your electronics connecters (cellphones, iPods, camera, etc.). All the cords will be stored in the box, out of sight. Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.
