The cerebral cortex is the part of the brain that thinks, imagines, and plans. The larger it is, the more intelligent the animal. A dolphin’s cerebral cortex is larger than a human’s. Dolphins also have more folds in their brains than humans do. Let’s take a look at what dolphins can do. • Like bats, dolphins navigate perfectly, even when unable to see, by using sonar. In the forehead of each dolphin is a pocket of oil or fat called the melon. This is used to focus the sound of the sonar blasts into a beam, like a magnifying lens focuses light. The sound bounces off an object and returns to the dolphin as an echo, containing information on the size, texture, and movement of the object. The dolphin receives the echo through fat deposits in its jaw. • A dolphin can identify objects up to half a mile away, detecting an item as small as a vitamin pill at the far end of a large pool. They also have manners when sounding their echolocation and avoid ‘spraying’ others with sound, focusing their sonar through a narrow window between other dolphins.

• Dolphins may be able to make sounds loud enough to stun fish. One researcher who went swimming in a pool with an agitated dolphin had his eardrum burst by such a sound. Some scientists theorize dolphins may use sonar to project images into the brains of other dolphins.

Of Linn County

• It is difficult to study the language of dolphins because when there are two or more dolphins present, it is impossible to tell which animal is making which sounds. However, a scientist developed a microcomputer that’s fastened by suction cups to each dolphin’s head. It records each sound and the time it was made, which can be matched up to videos made of the dolphin to see what the animal was doing at the time. • Dolphins identify themselves and each other with “signature whistles” that act as a name. They express emotions by repeating their “name” in different “tones of voice.” Researchers have recorded and identified signature whistles of individual dolphins. When those dolphins are taken into separate tanks for medical care, they repeat their names with variations that scientists interpret as fear or apprehension, communicating their state of mind to other dolphins. • Dr. Jarvis Bastian, a University of California psychologist, taught two dolphins named Doris and Buzz a game. They were taught to press the lever on the left when they saw a flashing light and the lever on the right when they saw a steady light. Then he taught them a new twist: when the light came on, Doris had to wait until Buzz pressed his lever first, then she was to press her lever. When they had this down pat, Dr. Bastian then placed a barricade between the two dolphins so that they couldn’t see each other. Only Doris could see the light. When the light was flashed, Doris waited for Buzz to press his lever. Buzz, not knowing the light was on, did nothing. Doris then gave off a burst of whistles and clicks, and Buzz immediately pulled the correct lever. He pulled the correct lever every time the test was repeated.

(continued):

• Dolphins in the oceanarium in San Francisco were taught to “clean house.” They received a reward of fish for each piece of trash they brought to their trainer. A dolphin named Mr. Spock kept on bringing a steady stream of soggy bits of paper. Finally, the trainer discovered that the dolphin had hidden a big brown paper bag in a corner of the pool, and was tearing off a tiny piece at time. • At the Kewalo Basin Marine Mammal Lab in Hawaii, trainers were working with two bottlenose dolphins. Together the two trainers tapped two fingers of each hand together, making the symbol for “in tandem.” Then they both threw their arms in the air in the sign language gesture that meant “creative.” The instruction was, “Do something creative together.” The two dolphins broke away and began swimming around the tank together. Then in perfect choreography they leapt high into the air while simultaneously spitting water out of their mouths. Because dolphins don’t normally carry water in their mouths, it was obviously a move that had to be planned and synchronized before they left the water, proving that this was not a matter of two dolphins playing Follow the Leader. When more games of “Tandem Creative” were played, the dolphins did such things and backpedalling and then waving their tail flukes, or doing simultaneous back flips. The trainers were always surprised. • Off the shores of a town called Laguna in Brazil, dolphins and men have teamed up for generations. Fishermen line up in the shallow water off the shore with their nets. When the dolphins locate a school of mullet, they “herd” the fish towards the fishermen. While the fishermen fill their nets, the dolphins feast on the leftovers.

Fear is False Expectations Appearing Real. Fear is all about perception. Instead of thinking about what could go wrong, think about what could go right. Faith is Fear Aint In This House. The winner between fear and faith is the one we feed. • Understand there is a war going on. Feed your faith • Change the pictures in your head to positive • Be thankful for the things in your life that you can grow and mature from • Exercising will allow you to escape the mental captivity that accompanies fear • Talking helps “as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” Proverbs 27:17

A PROBLEM Dolphins frequently hang out with schools of tuna. Fishing for tuna used to entail only poles and lines, but in the 1960s, the tuna fleets switched to mile-long nets called purse seines that are wrapped around an entire school and closed like a drawstring purse. Unable to reach the surface, dolphins drown. When one member of their pod becomes entangled in a net, the other dolphins stay to help it rather than fleeing. This causes many more to die. The population of spinner dolphins decreased by 80 percent in the 1970s due to tuna fishing. Most major tuna companies now purchase “dolphin-safe” tuna. The price was raised by a few cents to cover the cost of new nets which would allow dolphins to escape. Unfortunately, some foreign tuna companies still use the old methods. Furthermore, many people in the world consider dolphin meat a delicacy. DOLPHIN TO THE RESCUE • Sailors in the late 1800s came to depend on a generous porpoise known as Jack to guide them through the French Pass, a dangerous rocky waterway off the coast of New Zealand. Jack piloted every ship that came through the treacherous currents until 1903, when a drunk passenger on a ship called the Penguin shot and wounded him. Fortunately, Jack recovered and resumed his duties. For an additional nine years, he guided all ships- all except the Penguin. • In 1999 when 5-year-old Elian Gonzales found himself alone and adrift at sea after his mother and her companions drowned while escaping from Cuba, he survived by clinging to a floating inner tube. When rescuers found him, he was surrounded by dolphins who had broken waves for him and driven away sharks for the two terrible days he floated alone in the ocean.

Caring for an elderly parent or spouse isn’t easy. In spite of how difficult it might be, you’re not alone. There are programs and steps you can take that can ease your burden a bit. Start with the basics, the home, and be sure there are safeguards in place to make your job easier. For ideas about what you might need, go online to sites such as Elder Proof Home (www.elderproofhome.com, or call 1-888-840-1055) for items that can help you. By clicking the categories on the left side, you’ll not only find products that will help make the environment safer, but tips and advice as well. If you’ve had to give up your job to take care of a parent or spouse, there might be some money that will help fill in the gap: --If you’re a spouse who cares for a veteran who receives a pension, the veteran might qualify for what is called Aid and Attendance money. Call the VA at 1-800827-1000 to ask for specifics on how to apply for the extra pension. --You might qualify for a tax deduction if your elderly parent is your dependent. See IRS Publication 501. --In a few states, Medicaid has a program called Cash and Counseling. Payment can be send directly to you. Go to http:// medicaid.gov/ and chose your state. Investigate the National Family Caregiver Support Program (www.aoa.gov), part of the Older Americans Act of 1965. This program provides support to family members caring for anyone age 60 and older or any adult with dementia. You might be eligible for counseling, training, home modifications and respite care.

in the Montana Territory in 1880, nine years before Montana became a state. As a young woman, she worked in poverty stricken areas of New York, trying to improve conditions for immigrants. This experience led her to become deeply humanitarian. She wanted to devote her life to progressive reform.

February 12th 2013

December 22– January 19 Your knack for collecting leads you to an incredible opportunity. Seize it, Capricorn. It’s made for you. A true blue friend could use some savvy advice.

August 23– September 22 Romantic gestures get the week off to a great start. Enjoy, Virgo, and don’t forget to return the favor. News from home revs up the excitement!

• As she worked for women’s rights, she correctly concluded that a lot of the ills of society were caused by women’s inability to vote, which she claimed amounted to nothing short of “taxation without representation.” Hired as a field secretary for the National American Woman Suffrage Association, she was instrumental in getting women the right to vote in North Dakota in 1913. • In 1916, she ran for congress in her home state of Montana, and was elected to the House of Representatives, becoming the first female member of congress. It was another four years before the 19th Amendment guaranteed all women in the U.S. the right to vote. In congress, she worked tirelessly on behalf of social issues such as women’s rights, child protection, and prohibition. • As the first woman in congress, she got a lot of attention. When congress voted on whether or not to enter World War I, she was one of 50 people who voted against it. This action brought a lot of ridicule her way, but she defended her vote saying, “I felt the first time the first woman had a chance to say no to war she should say it.” • She failed in her bid to be re-elected, and went to work instead as a lobbyist, pressing for reforms to reduce the nation’s infant mortality rate. In 1939 she ran for congress again, basing her campaign on an anti-war platform. •

March 21– April 19

Baby steps, Aries. Pulling out all of the stops at this point will get you nowhere fast. Caution is key to making progress. A financial opportunity beckons.

April 20– May 20

Psst, Libra. More is more this week. Express how you feel, show your appreciation and watch your relationship with a loved one blossom. A phone call proves insightful.

October 23– November 21

Happiness comes in many forms, Scorpio. What brings you joy may not work for another. Keep that in mind as you make plans for a visit with a friend.

November 22– December 21

A new arrival turns life at home upside down. Go with the flow, Sagittarius, and you just might have a bit of fun. The workload increases.

Her brother, who was wealthy and wellconnected, financed and organized her second campaign for Congress. Largely due to his assistance, she won another term. She unseated Jacob Thorkelson, who had been using his single term to advocate a Nazi agenda.

• Following the attack on Pearl Harbor, Jeannette Rankin was the only member of congress to staunchly vote against entering World War II, saying, “As a woman, I can’t go to war and I refuse to send anyone else.” She is now remembered as the only person in congress to vote against entering into both World War I and World War II. • When her term ended in 1943, she returned to her home in Montana and spent several decades out of the political spotlight. However, with the social turmoil caused by Civil Rights, Viet Nam, and the fight for women’s equality, she returned to social agitation, and worked to organize marches, mobilize the downtrodden, and set up foundations. • She considered another run for Congress in the 1970s in order to vote against U.S. involvement in Viet Nam. By then she was in her 80s. She continued to write about issues of social importance until she died in 1973 at the age of 92. Although some people consider her to have been outrageously unrealistic, others praise her as an inspiration. Even to this day, the Jeannette Rankin Scholarship fund she set up continues to provide for the education of low income women across the United States. • “I may be the first woman member of Congress,” she observed upon her election in 1916. “But I won’t be the last.” And upon her election in 1940, she said, “No one will pay any attention to me this time,” the victor predicted. “There is nothing unusual about a woman being elected.”

Q: During the last cold snap, the cold water pipe leading to my garage’s utility sink froze and broke. Fortunately, there was no water damage. Is it possible to fix the pipe myself? -Chet in Springfield, Mass.

A: Depending on the location of the pipe break, repairing it can be fairly straightforward. The good thing is that it’s a nonessential fixture -- unlike, say, pipes leading to the kitchen or LOW DOWN PAYMENT! bathroom -- and so you have the choice of either fixing it right away or shutting off water to that section of the pipe run until the weather gets STRANGE BUT TRUE warmer. by Samantha Weaver A broken pipe needs to be replaced.

Born into a four generation touring bluegrass family, brothers John and James and cousin Elijah have been on stage in the family business since they were kids. Together as The Abrams Brothers for over 10 years, the band became the youngest Canadians to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. In 2005, they were named Emerging Artist of the Year at the Canadian Bluegrass Music Awards. Over the past few years, The Abrams Brothers have been a constant on the Canadian festival circuit and have shared the same stage with Feist, John Hammond and Dean Brody. Drawing from vast influences including the Louvin Brothers, Tony Rice, The Beach Boys and Neil Young, the Abrams Brothers seamlessly fuse bluegrass with country and folkrock. Their new album draws heavily upon the landscapes of the Canadian wilderness, and merges these images with themes of love, loneliness and restless ambition. “The songs draw upon the many experiences of growing up playing music with four generations of Abrams musicians, coupled with the youthful unrest we feel in wanting to further our own career” explains John Abrams. The Abrams Brothers are the fourth concert in CRCCA’s 2012-2013 season. Broadway star Jeri Sager wraps up the season in June. Cedar Rapids’ best family entertainment value for 82 years, the CRCCA offers quality entertainment at a cost everyone can afford. Get five live concerts for one low price – all five concerts just $40 for general seating, $55 for reserved section, or $80 general section seating for the whole family. Tickets to individual concerts are also available. For more information and membership details, visit

So you’re not interested in eating bugs? Well, you better start reading the ingredients labels a bit more closely… • The cochineal beetle lives on prickly pear cactus plants in places such as Peru and the Canary Islands, sucking their sap. The eggs of the beetle, wrapped inside a cocoon, are bright red. In fact, the eggs are so red that a pregnant female cochineal beetle whose body harbors unlaid eggs will, if squashed, yield a bright red pulp. Long ago the Mixtec Indians collected the female cochineal beetles and crushed them to a powder. The dried bug dust was used to create a color-fast red dye for fabrics that is still used today. It’s considered to be superior to all synthetic dyes. But these red bugs color more than just clothing. • Dye made from cochineal beetles is called carmine. In the 1800s food manufacturers began to use carmine to dye sausages, candy, jam, shrimp, maraschino cherries, and other things. The cosmetic industry used it to color lipstick and rouge. The pharmaceutical industry used it to color pills. Carmine was very common until a red dye made from coal tar became more popular in the 1870s. However, when coal tar dyes were found to be carcinogenic, carmine came back on the scene. Look at the ingredients of red foods and beverages in your supermarket today for either “carmine” or “cochineal extract.” Many kinds of juice, yogurt, ice cream, cough syrup, gelatin, and candy may contain beetle powder for coloring. The advertising for such products may legitimately claim, “All natural ingredients!” because, after all, what’s unnatural about a beetle? If you don’t want to eat crushed beetles, look for ‘artificial coloring’ on the ingredients label. • In 1996, some 640 metric tons of cochineal was harvested in Peru. That accounts for 85 percent of the world’s production. • Now let’s take a look at candy, especially chocolate candy such as chocolate covered raisins, chocolate mints, chocolate coated peanuts and so forth. Anything that tends to get sticky is covered with shellac. • What exactly is shellac? Shellac comes from the poop produced by the scale beetle Laccifer lacca, which lives in India and South Asia. The beetle makes a living eating tree sap, particularly of several species of soapberry, acacia, and fig tree. It then excretes digested sap and covers itself with a hardened shell of this resinous matter to protect itself from predators while it goes through its larval stage. • Twigs covered with these bugs are then scraped off, and the scrapings are ground up, washed, melted, filtered, dried, and dissolved in denatured alcohol to form a varnish for furniture. • Food grade varnish, a type of confectioner’s glaze, can also be produced from Laccifer lacca which is very popular with food manufacturers because it maintains its gloss even in high humidity; it doesn’t get sticky or dull; and it adheres easily to many food surfaces. • Of course, the label is not going to list bug poop as an ingredient. No, it’s usually got a sugar coated name such as ‘confectioner’s glaze or ‘resinous glaze.’ • “Lac” from which we get our word shellac, comes from the Persian word meaning “hundred thousand” because it takes so many of these tiny bugs to produce lac in any quantity: 100,000 bugs, each the size of the head of a pin, can yield perhaps a pound of shel-lac.

NEWSWEEK!

Newsweek recently stopped their print edition. We live in changing times since the beginning of time. Some things last longer then others, heck sliced bread seems to still have some longevity to it. Newspapers across the country are scrambling to figure out how to keep their print editions rolling off the presses. The newspapers don't say that they are a dying industry, it is their readers. Typical readership is now over 65 for a newspaper. Advertisers prefer younger people as they normally are still buying as seniors are downsizing with what they have. Younger people live by their mobile devices while older adults are accessing the news in ways that were not common just a few years ago. I myself like to keep up with local and national news and hope that we can continue to be well informed either in print or in new ways never imagined when newsprint first began. Advertising is what generates all forms of media regardless of it being in print, radio, television or online. Tidbits is not a traditional newspaper as we like to provide great content that all ages can enjoy anytime of the week or even year as our content is seldom outdated. I would greatly appreciate any feedback about our content or your experience with any of our advertisers so that we can continue to serve our readers in the best possible way.
