After Spanish explorers established regular trade routes with the Americas, a new industry was born: Pirating. Come along with Tidbits as we sail the high seas! • Pirating reached its height in the years between 1650 and 1730. Pirate ships didn’t roam around hoping to chance upon a victim; they patrolled known shipping routes. During this time, many governments (particularly England) supported p i r a c y,

• In the mid-1600s, there were about 50,000 British sailors making an honest living on the sea, and probably somewhere between 1,000 and 5,000 British pirates making a dishonest living at the same time. During this period, about 80 pirates served on each pirate ship. The career of a pirate generally lasted only a few years or so before they were drowned or killed or jailed. Although some made a fortune and retired, it was more common for the ones who made money to squander it in short order, necessitating another trip.

• The image of the typical pirate that’s been passed down through history is partly true and partly false. Pirates often wore a scarf tied around their head to keep their hair out of their face and to prevent sweat from running into their eyes. They frequently went barefoot which gave them better traction on slippery decks. Pirates wore earrings because they thought it would improve their vision.

to the list and expected to stick to it. Disability pensions were awarded for pirates wounded in battle. Usually, the captain was elected by secret ballot and could be voted out of office. Likewise, ships’ officers were often elected democratically. Many pirate captains preferred to win their battles with a show of force rather than bloodthirsty slaughter. Booty was generally divided fairly, with the captain receiving a share and a half; officers receiving a share and a quarter; and crew getting one share each. Nobody on the pirate ship got paid anything at all unless they captured something of value. Most ships carried musicians on board to provide entertainment.

(Acupuncturists say this isn’t far from the truth.) Burying their treasure is not something that happened often, although there are a few cases on record. Leaving a treasure behind left it vulnerable. Most often plunder was carried to the nearest port and sold. Likewise, walking the plank was a rare occurrence. In fact, there are only two pirates known to have used that method. One was Major Stede Bonnet, who is credited with inventing it, and the other was a Dane called Captain Derdrake. More commonly, men were simply thrown overboard. • Contrary to popular belief, a pirate ship tended to be a fairly democratic workplace. A charter establishing ship rules would be drawn up at the start of each voyage with each sailor contributing

• In the late 1600s, when most of humanity was still illiterate, ships flew flags with pictures on them indicating their identity and intention. Flags might depict an hourglass (indicating time running out for surrender), or a sword (indicating willingness to fight), or a skull and crossbones, which was by far the most popular design. The color of a flag also sent messages: A black flag meant the pirates would give quarter, and would spare the lives of the captured crew if the treasure was handed over without a fight. If the victims refused to lay down their weapons, a red flag (preferably dipped in blood) would be run up. If a red flag was flying, it meant no quarter would be given and the crew could expect to die. Seeing the sight of a red flag with skull and crossbones was often all it took to convince the victims to give up and hand all their goods over. After all, the cargo on board usually didn’t even belong to them. A white flag indicated surrender. • The French phrase ‘joli rouge’ means ‘pretty red’ which is thought to be the reason the pirate flag is called the Jolly Roger. • Cannon shot was carefully aimed to destroy the sailsand masts of the ships being captured without damaging the ship itself. Pirates needed to immobilize the ship but did not want to destroy it. Treasure didn’t do much good if it was sitting on the bottom of the ocean, and the boat itself was a prize worth keeping. Cannonballs were often made imperfectly on purpose because they would make more noise in flight if they were not perfectly round, and noisy cannonballs were more intimidating than silent cannonballs. • The fierce Gujarati pirates made captured merchants swallow an emetic called tamarindi mixed with salt sea water which would cause them to vomit, throwing up any gemstones they may have swallowed prior to being caught.

Booty comes from the German root ‘bute’ meaning ‘exchange.’

• The word ‘pirate’ comes from the Greek ‘peiran’ meaning ‘to attack.’ • The word ‘careen’ comes from the French word ‘carene’ meaning the keel of a ship. Boats that collected barnacles and seaweed moved sluggishly in the water so they needed to be cleaned regularly, especially if they were pirate ships that needed to outmaneuver their victims. The boat would

NANCY’S PAPERS • In the 1700s, an American ship called the Nancy was suspected of pirating and of running Britain’s blockade of France. Cornered in the Caribbean, the captain of the Nancy tossed incriminating logbooks and papers into the sea just before being captured. The captain and crew of the Nancy were taken to Britain to stand trial. However, without the ship’s papers, there was no evidence. Just then a second British ship sailed into port, bringing the Nancy’s papers. They had found the ship’s papers in the belly of a shark they caught off Haiti. The captain of the Nancy was convicted and hung. The papers were placed in a museum.

• In the meantime, Mary Read was born in England around 1690. When she was still an infant, her father left on a sea voyage never to return, leaving her mother destitute. Her mother decided to travel to London to beg for financial support from her mother-in-law. Knowing that the woman disliked little girls, she dressed Mary like a boy. The ploy worked, and Mary spent the rest of her childhood pretending to be a boy, even after her grandmother died. • Mary Read found that life was easier for a man than it was for a woman, so she continued to masquerade as a man even as an adult. She became a professional soldier, and fell in love with another soldier. When she revealed her secret to him, they were married and settled down to a normal husband-and-wife existence as innkeepers. • When her husband died, Mary found herself destitute. She disguised herself as a man, and got a job as a sailor aboard a ship headed to the Caribbean. When the ship was overtaken by Captain Jack Rackham, she joined Rackham’s crew aboard the Vanity.

• It wasn’t long before Mary Read and Anne Bonny— both serving on the same ship, both disguised as men— discovered each other’s secret. They became best of friends and served side-by-side for the next several years.

But at their sentencing, when the judge asked if they had anything to say, they both revealed themselves to be pregnant. Since British law forbade killing an unborn child, their sentences were stayed temporarily. • Mary is said to have died of a fever in prison in 1721, before the birth of her child. Other reports say she feigned death and was sneaked out of the prison under a shroud. • No record of Anne’s execution has ever been found. Some say that her wealthy father bought her release after the birth of her child and she settled down to a quiet family life on a small Caribbean island.

PIRATE TYPES • A buccaneer was a pirate who operated in the Caribbean. In the 1600s various misfits such as runaway slaves, criminals hiding out, and sailors who had deserted their ships began roaming around the island that is now Haiti. They hunted wild pigs and cattle, drying the meat to preserve it. The drying racks they used were called ‘boucans’ and this group of rag-tag men subsequently became known as buccaneers. They traded their dried meat for goods carried by ships that were heading back to Europe. The Spanish had claimed the island as their territory so the presence of these buccaneers was unwanted. To drive them off, the Spaniards not only murdered them whenever possible, but also slaughtered their cattle and pigs. Angry, the buccaneers organized a resistance and drove the Spaniards off. Not satisfied with that, the buccaneers then took their revenge to the sea, raiding every Spanish ship they could capture. Finding this profitable, they often attacked ships from other countries as well. The heyday of buccaneers in the Caribbean waned by the end of the 1600s as the Spanish presence in the Caribbean began to fall off. • A privateer was essentially a pirate whose plundering was sanctioned and often underwritten by the government that the pirate worked for. Captains of privately owned boats carried documents known as Letters of Marque which officially authorized them to attack and plunder ships belonging to whatever country their homeland was warring with at the time. (‘Marque’ came from the German word ‘march’ meaning border; the Letters of Marque gave the captains permission to cross international boundaries.) Generally the sponsoring government received a share of the privateer’s loot. • Privateering reached its zenith between 1589 and 1815, when privateers acted as auxiliary members of the navy. When a particular war ended, the Letters of Marque issued for that war expired and the privateers found themselves out of work. Reluctant to give up the way of life, many of them became pirates instead and attacked whatever ships they ran across. During the War of 1812, privateers disregarded the rules laid down by their Letters of Marque and began attacking whatever ships they found. Because of these abuses, the Declaration of Paris, signed in 1856 by France and England, abolished privateering. This declaration later became part of general international law. • Then there were the regular pirates, who attacked not only other ships but also any likely-looking towns on shore. The cost of operating pirate ships was often underwritten by wealthy businessmen who invested in the venture hoping to make a profit. • Captain Kidd was licensed by the British government to capture enemy merchant ships and bring the plunder home. But one ship he preyed on was owned by rich, influential men who had connections. They complained to King William III— the same man who had commissioned Kidd— and Kidd was tricked, trapped, and brought to trial. Evidence was withheld that would have saved him, and Kidd went to the gallows, undeserving of his reputation as an evil pirate. • Philosopher Diogenes was captured by pirates in order to be sold into slavery. The pirate captain wanted to know if he had any trade or skills. Diogenes replied that all he knew was how to govern men. “Sell me to a man who needs a master!” he said. The pirate immediately put him to work as tutor to his two sons.

Prevention and treatment of type 2 diabetes with nutritional measures, especially a plant-based diet and avoidance of meat and dairy products, remains a safe and effective approach.

Breaking Medical News More Risks Shown for Diabetes Drugs Commonly prescribed diabetes medications have been linked to risk of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, according to recent publications. The drugs include exenatide (Byetta), liraglutide (Victoza), sitagliptin (Januvia), and possibly other similar medications. Reports from Dr. Peter Butler of UCLA and Drs. Sonal Singh and Jodi Segal of Johns Hopkins University describe these adverse effects in the journals Gastroenterolgy,JAMA Internal Medicine, and Diabetes. These new warnings about adverse effects of oral diabetes medications follow in the wake of the FDA pulling blockbuster medications troglitazone (Rezulin) off the market, restricting use of rosiglitazone (Avandia), and issuing warnings related to bladder cancer to pioglitazone (Actos).

Red Meat Not a Healthful Iron Source for Infants Feeding infants red meat is unnecessary and possibly harmful, according to a new paper by Ulka Agarwal, M.D., director of clinical research for the Physicians Committee. The possibility that iron-deficiency anemia may occur in infancy has led some to recommend red meat as an early complementary food for babies. However, children and adults who do not consume red meat do not have a higher incidence of iron-deficiency anemia, compared with their meat-eating counterparts.

Unprovoked bites from an animal raise the suspicion of rabies. Less-serious bites, the ones that can be treated at home, are copiously irrigated with sterile saltwater. Not many homes have sterile saltwater, so the bite should be washed with soap and water and then irrigated with tap water. After the irrigation, apply a disinfectant like Betadine (povidone iodine). Inspect the wound daily for any signs of infection -- skin redness or pus. If you see those signs, take the child to a doctor.

Treating Animal Bites DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you tell me the best way to treat pet bites? I have three young children, and we live in a neighborhood where every family except us has at least one pet. Most are dogs. I don’t want to overreact to a tiny scratch, but I need to know what to do with a more serious bite. -- A.M.

If the child’s immunizations are up to date, all is well. If they are not, he or she needs a tetanus booster. If the child has had no tetanus immunizations, the series should begin right away. Wounds that are large, that bleed, that are quite deep or are in a place, like the face, where they might be deforming should be taken care of by a professional.

ANSWER: I’m limiting my remarks to cat and dog bites. Wild-animal bites require more involved treatment and are best taken care of in a hospital setting.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: I’m in my 60s and never had a major illness. I take no medicines. In the past three months, I have been wakened from sleep with a dull pain in the center of my chest. My husband told me to take Mylanta. I did, and got instant relief. What do you think of this pain? -- V.P.

A domesticated animal that has bitten a child or adult should be observed for 10 days to see if it exhibits signs of rabies. The threat of rabies is small, but maximal precautions have to

ANSWER: Pain that wakens a person from sleep must be taken seriously and ought to be reported to the family doctor.

Fat Matters for Type 1 Diabetes Fatty foods tend to increase blood sugars for people with type 1 diabetes, according to a new study published by the American Diabetes Association. Studying type 1 diabetes patients at the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston, researchers provided 48-hours’ worth of meals with identical carbohydrate and protein content but varying in fat content (10 grams vs. 60 grams). The high-fat meals required an average of 42 percent more insulin in order to bring blood sugar under control. Although people with diabetes focus on the carbohydrate content of their meals, research has shown that reducing fat, rather than carbohydrate, can improve type 2 diabetes. The new study extends this finding to type 1 diabetes. The authors suggest that nutrition education and counseling for people with type 1 diabetes should look beyond the current carbohydrate-based methods.

However, the response you got from taking Mylanta (an antacid) makes me think of GERD -- gastroesophageal reflux disease, more commonly known as heartburn. Stomach acid and digestive juices spurt into the esophagus, a structure not equipped to deal with them like the stomach can. If this nighttime pain of yours keeps coming back, put 6-inch blocks under the bedposts at the head of your bed to keep stomach juices in the stomach when you lie down. My first statement about nighttime pain has to be observed. You need to see the family doctor to be certain this is heartburn and not one of the many other serious possibilities.

700 South Dixie Hwy, Hollywood, FL 33020 • (954) 920-4013 had one run-through and triumphed in Barbra’s finale. Further dates in Amsterdam, Paris, Cologne and Berlin listed only Barbra’s sister Rosyln Kind and her son Jason Gould as appearing. Never has anyone ever canceled on La Streisand. She might have gotten a clue from their name ... “Il Volo” means “The Flight,” in English! HOLLYWOOD -- In her 50 years as a star, Barbra Streisand has acquired a reputation as a perfectionist and a purist, and for being very temperamental. When Streisand came back after her farewell tour to perform at The Hollywood Bowl last summer, in her finale, she featured 20-year-old Sicilian Piero Barone, 19-year-old Sicilian Ignazio Boscetto and 18-year-old Italian Gianluca Ginoble, aka pop-opera singers “Il Volo.” It went so well that she invited “Il Volo” to join her European tour.

• My best tip for the beach? A laundry basket and a bungee cord. I put my cooler, bags and beach toys in the basket and pull it along the sand using the bungee. It has worked for me many times -- and it’s so convenient to keep things corralled! Here are more tips on beach vacationing. -- JoAnn • Must-haves at the beach: Zipper-top bags for trash and clothespins to clip a napkin down so it won’t blow away! • “Freeze bottles of water (take out a sip or two to allow the ice to expand) and juice boxes or pouches before you head out to the beach (or anytime you’re taking a cooler). They will act as ice packs to keep food and snacks cool, and double as refreshing beverages along the way!” -- A.A. in Florida • “My eyesight started to falter a few years ago, and I had found that my glasses slipped and were uncomfortable during seaside trips. I dearly love to read, and have since discovered audiobooks, or books on tape. I download them to a digital music player and can listen all day if I like. It also allows me to people watch and even doze off! I am almost 80, so I can do that if I feel like it!” -- R.A. in Connecticut • “I keep an empty gallon jug in the trunk of my car. When I go to the beach, if there’s no shower, I can fill it with water at a faucet and get a good rinse there before I leave.” -- L.G. in Mississippi • I bring a thin, nylon bag to the beach in case I go shopping or collect shells, etc. It folds and zips down really small, so it takes no room, but has come in handy most times I’ve gone to the shore. -- T.T. in New York Send your tips to Now Here’s a Tip, c/o King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

Imagine Barbra’s surprise, hours before her show in London, to learn “Il Volo” had canceled on her. Luckily, her stage manager called old friend Ryan Molloy, playing Frankie Valli in the London production of “Jersey Boys,” to fill in. He put his understudy on and rushed to 02 Arena,

Thought you might like a list of favorite shows definitely returning next season: BBC’s “Doctor Who” will be back for season eight. FX’s “Justified” returns in early 2014 for its fourth season. HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” will return later this year, and “Game of Thrones” comes back next spring -- both for their fourth seasons -- while “Girls” returns early next year for season three. PBS will bring back “Downton Abbey” for season four on Sunday, Jan. 5. TNT will bring “Dallas” back for season three early next year. TVLand brings “Hot in Cleveland” back later this year for season five, while USA has renewed “Psych” and will bring back “White Collar” for season five in the fall. Oh yes, NBC is trying to get the original producer of “Community” to return in hopes of renewing the show it nearly destroyed! To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the 1939 release of “The Wizard of Oz,” Warner Bros. plans to reissue the classic film Sept. 20-27 in IMAX and 3D, and then release a five-disc set Oct. 1, including a new disc on the making of the film. Meanwhile, Disney’s “Oz, The Great and Powerful,” just released on disc, cost $215 million to make and took in $490 million worldwide. Warners has high expectations for its new release of “The Man of Steel.” It was budgeted at $175 million, but cost $225 million to make, plus an additional $175 million to publicize. Warner needs Superman to be the “Man of Steal” at the box office! (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Her husband, Dr. Sam Sheppard, claimed to see a man with bushy hair fleeing the scene, but the authorities charged Sheppard with killing his pregnant wife. Sheppard’s case provided the loose inspiration for the hit television show “The Fugitive.” • On July 7, 1852, according to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s stories, Dr. John H. Watson is born. Coincidentally, the author died on this day in England at the age of 71. His first Sherlock Holmes story, “A Study in Scarlet,” was published in Beeton’s Christmas Annual in 1887. • On July 3, 1863, on the third day of the Battle of Gettysburg, Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee’s last attempt at breaking the Union line ends in disastrous failure, bringing the most decisive battle of the American Civil War to an end. Exhausted, both armies held their positions until the night of July 4, when Lee withdrew. • On July 5, 1946, French designer Louis Reard unveils a daring two-piece swimsuit at a Paris swimming pool. A Parisian showgirl modeled the new fashion, which Reard dubbed “bikini,” inspired by a U.S. atomic test that took place off the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific Ocean earlier that week.

• On July 2, 1964, in a nationally televised ceremony, President Lyndon Johnson signs into law the historic Civil Rights Act. The Civil Rights Act met tough opposition in the House and a lengthy, heated debate in the Senate before being approved. • On July 6, 1976, in Annapolis, Md., the United States Naval Academy admits women for the first time in its history with the induction of 81 female midshipmen. In May 1980, Elizabeth Anne Rowe became the first woman member of the class to graduate. • On July 1, 1984, the Motion Picture Association of America, which oversees the voluntary rating system for movies, introduces a new rating, PG-13. The action film “Red Dawn,” starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, became the first PG-13 movie to be released in theaters. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

TIDBITS - Please Support Our Advertisers only three seasons. Danny McBride and company ended the series in a hilarious way that only they could. However, HBO (and perhaps pressure from diehard fans like us) convinced Danny, Will Farrell and the rest of the crew to return for a fourth season. I, for one, am thrilled, as this has been a highlight of my sitcomwatching career. The fourth -- and supposedly final -- season of HBO’s “Eastbound and Down” is scheduled to premiere Sept. 29. ®

Q: One of my favorite shows is TNT’s “Rizzoli and Isles.” Can you give me any clues as to what to expect this season? -- Janet Y., via email

Q: I thought that “Eastbound and Down” was over, that the third season was its last season. Now I hear there is a new season coming. Is this true? -- Larry T., Philadelphia, Pa.

A: I had the chance to speak with series star Sasha Alexander, who plays Dr. Maura Isles, and she gave me a few spoilers about season four, which begins Tuesday, June 25: “We start three months after the end of season three. Maura has anonymously donated her kidney to her sister, Kayleen. Maura is in a funky place. She’s feeling vulnerable and fragile. She’s not her normal, sunny self.

A: Originally, “Eastbound and Down” was supposed to be

“It’s fun watching Jane try to lift her spirits. It leads to --Scissors --Ballpoint pen, pencil, chopstick or skewer --Tempera or acrylic paint, or water based ink for block printing --Paintbrush, foam paint roller or hand-inking roller (brayer) --Construction or watercolor paper Here’s the fun: 1. Set supplies on a newspaper-covered table. Trim off all curved edges of the trays with scissors to create a perfectly flat foam printing block.

There aren’t many Styrofoam-style containers that make it into our house these days, now that we consume fewer pre-packaged food items. But once in awhile, a take-home box from a restaurant or a fresh fruit/vegetable tray sneaks in. If you have some in your recycle bin, put them to use and make super-easy block prints. Your kids can have fun all summer long setting up their own “print shop” indoors or out to make bookmarks, note cards, party invitations, art to frame and art to wear. This is a great way to spend creative time together with your kids, too, discovering the joy of making something beautiful from scratch. Here’s what you’ll need: --Recycled clean and unpatterned foam trays and plates from packaged fruits, vegetable and baked goods

In regard to future storylines and guest stars, we can expect great ones this season, starting with Maura’s love life. As Sasha tells me: “Eric Winter (of ‘The Mentalist,’ ‘Brothers and Sisters’ and ‘The Ugly Truth’) is a potential love interest. He’s great -- I love him. He plays a bombsquad tech that Maura is attracted to.”

Q: Can you tell me how Vivian Campbell of Def Leppard is doing? I heard he has cancer. -- Shelley W. in North Carolina

A: According to the axeman himself, the Def Leppard guitarist is doing Hurry! Order now for unbelievable low prices, with flowers from $19.99 +s/h just fine.

2. Draw a picture or design by pressing firmly on the foam block with a pen or other suggested objects. If using a skewer, press with the blunt end. You may wish to draw a light design with a pencil first. Remember, the printed design will appear in reverse. For alphabet letters, you might wish to practice beforehand on a sheet of scratch paper, then look at them in a mirror to see how they would look when printed. 3. Apply the paint or ink evenly onto the printing block with a brush or roller. Avoid filling in the design. Carefully place your paper over the printing block, press gently or rub the back of the paper with the rounded side of a large spoon. Quickly peel away the print to keep from smearing the design. Make as many prints as you wish. Add more paint to the printing block as needed. If it becomes clogged, rinse with water, dry and reapply paint or ink. Tip: Hang a length of heavy string within kids’ reach from one wall or tree to another, and hang prints to dry. Extra idea: To make block prints on prewashed cotton shirts, aprons and tote bags, follow the above steps using fabric paints.

Because of my affinity for “Dawson’s Creek,” I had to ask her about her time there. “I had a wonderful experience. I love that I went to the prom with Dawson. James (Van Der Beek), Michelle (Williams), Josh (Jackson) and I are still dear friends. We don’t have shows like that anymore. I love the innocence and the beauty of that show. It was a really fun experience for me, and it was a really positive show. I wish there were something like it on the air now.” Write to Cindy at King Features Weekly Service, P.O.

When a grisly discovery is made at the scene, an investigation is launched that threatens to expose several secrets that have been carefully hidden and literally buried for years.

“Daddy’s Gone a Hunting”

As Kate lies in the hospital badly injured and in a coma, and a former worker at the firm dies from his injuries, the mystery of what happened that night deepens, especially since it might somehow be connected to the disappearances two young women, one missing for decades and the other for a couple of years.

In her latest suspense novel, Mary Higgins Clark unravels a dark and long-hidden family secret that endangers the lives of two sisters, Kate and Hannah Connelly. After the family-owned furniture and antiques business -- founded

Once again, Higgins Clark provides readers with a perplexing mystery set in New York City and involving an extensive cast of primary and secondary characters -one of whom might just be a ruthless killer who will stop at nothing to cover his tracks, and is willing to murder

Higgins Clark masterfully crafts a shell game of fraud and deception that involves strong-willed and secretive characters, some motivated only by greed and fear, others by ambition, justice and unwavering loyalty. She manages to weave together a mystery that includes insurance fraud, two missing-person cold cases, identity theft and the impact of mental illness on the homeless! “Daddy’s Gone a Hunting” is not Higgins Clark’s most inspired or jaw-dropping mystery to date, but it is an engaging novel that is perfect to read at the beach as the waves gently lap the shoreline, or during a daily commute to work on public transit.
