TIDBITS® EXAMINES NOBEL PRIZES by Kathy Wolfe Most everyone has heard of the Nobel Prizes, but how much do you know about their origin and the winners? Tidbits brings you a history of the Prizes and a sampling of a few winners. • A Swedish inventor and businessman was the foundation for the five categories of Nobel Prizes awarded each year. Alfred Nobel, born in Stockholm in 1833, was 30 years old when he was working on developing nitroglycerine as an explosive for the mining industry. Unfortunately, Nobel’s own brother was killed in an explosion during their experiments. In 1864, Nobel was able to start mass-producing nitroglycerine, meanwhile experimenting with mixing nitro with a fine sand to make a paste to shape into rods that could be inserted into drilling holes. In 1866, he received a patent for his new invention which he called “dynamite.” This was closely followed by the invention of a detonator in order to set off the dynamite by lighting a fuse. His innovation was so successful, Nobel set up 90 factories in more than 20 countries. • Nobel never married, living much of his life as a very wealthy recluse prone to depression. By the time he died at age 63, he had 355 patents. turn the page for more!

TIDBITS of Kootenai County, Idaho Issue #11 March 10th NOBEL PRIZES (continued): • Alfred Nobel’s will designated 94% of his vast fortune toward establishing five Nobel Prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Medicine, Literature, and Peace to those who, “during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind.” His relatives vehemently contested the will, and it took four years for the executors to cut through the red tape necessary to adhere to Alfred Nobel’s wishes. In 1901, the prizes were awarded for the first time. • In 1968, a sixth Nobel Prize was added to the original list, a prize in Economics, established and funded by Sweden’s central bank in memory of Alfred Nobel. • Today’s Nobel Prize winners are awarded $1.26 million (U.S. Dollars) for their achievements. • The average age of a Nobel Prize Laureate is 59 years. The youngest recipient is Lawrence Bragg, who at age 25, was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1915 jointly with his father “for their services in the analysis of crystal structure by means of X-rays.” • One family has received five Nobel prizes. Marie Curie received the 1903 Physics prize and the 1911 prize in Chemistry. Her husband Pierre shared the 1903 prize with her. Their daughter Irene was awarded the Chemistry prize in 1935, along with her husband Frederic. The husband of Marie’s daughter Eve, Henry Labouisse, won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965 as the director of UNICEF. Marie Curie was the first to receive more than one Nobel Prize, and the first person known to die of radiation poisoning. Throughout all her work with radioactivity, it was not known that radiation was dangerous

NOBEL PRIZES (continued): • Ernest Rutherford, a New Zealand scientist, is considered the father of nuclear physics. He received the 1908 Chemistry prize for his work with the chemistry of radioactive substances, discovering the concept of radioactive halflife and alpha and beta radiation. Yet his most famous work was performed nine years after his prize, when he became the first to split the atom in a nuclear reaction. The chemical element rutherfordium (Element 104) is named after him. Fourteen of Rutherford’s students went on to become Nobel Prize winners themselves. • Albert Einstein was responsible for “the world’s most famous equation,” E=mc2, the formula for mass-energy equivalence. But that wasn’t the work for which he received his Nobel Prize in Physics. In 1921, this genius took the prize for discovering the cause of the photoelectric effect. • Following a vacation at his country home, Scottish biologist Alexander Fleming returned to his lab to find a fungus had developed in a stack of Petri dishes that contained a staphylococcus culture. The bacteria had died all around the area containing the mold, prompting him to perform experiments over the next 20 years showing that the mold prevented growth of staphylococci, even when diluted 800 times. Fleming named his “mold juice” penicillin, and it was produced as an antibiotic that could cure numerous serious infectious diseases. For his work in the field of Medicine, Fleming was awarded the 1945 Nobel Prize. • The “first person in the Western world to have shown us that a struggle can be waged without violence” was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1964. At 33, Martin Luther King, Jr. became the youngest person to receive this honor for his work in America’s civil rights movement. King donated the prize money to the movement.

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta

By Dr. Holly Carling

ALL PROTEIN IS NOT THE SAME Proteins, as well as carbohydrates, essential fatty acids, minerals and vitamins are not only the building blocks of a healthy body, but necessary for function as well. The body is about 45% protein. Without it, our body cannot regulate, repair, rebuild or protect itself. Protein in our diets is crucial. But not all protein is the same. Approximately half of the amino acids are destroyed or crippled by heat. If we do not eat protein that has been unheated, we may be missing many essential amino acids.Unheated, or raw, protein has been a part of the diet since the beginning of time. However, since the industrialization of foods, this is practically non-existent today. Anciently, foods were prepared with the goal of not only preservation, but maintaining nutrient density. Today, that is rarely a consideration. Anciently, the diet abounded with unheated proteins. Ancient grains such as quinoa, amaranth, kamut, millet and spelt were eaten as sources of food high in proteins. Nuts (not roasted, but raw) were a staple for many cultures. Typically, grains and nuts were soaked, and/or sprouted prior to use. This activates the enzymes which break down the protein and fiber into a more easily digested and assimilated form. That means that you get more protein for the buck, with less digestive load and irritation. Another source of quality, protein is meat. Raw meat was a staple for centuries. Meat was frequently preserved by layering it with salt in crocks, jerking it or smoking it. These methods preserved the heat-labile amino acids, giving the full complement of protein needed for good health. Of the more familiar foods; corned beef, beef jerky, and pastrami were originally raw, preserved meats. Today, sushi or sashimi, is consumed. When you consume raw protein as found in nature, you get more than just protein. These foods contain enzymes, probiotics, minerals and fat soluble vitamins such as Vitamins A, D, E and K. These are considered co-factors that are helpful in the assimilation and utilization of the protein. Our diets are sorely lacking in essential protein, raw protein. If you choose to eat raw meats, be sure that they areproperly prepared. Eggs over-easy or lightly poached comes close, and real smoked jerky (not the commercial type which is typically prepared with smoke flavor and other such ingredients) is an option. The easiest way to get raw protein is through raw nuts. If you eat roasted nuts, they've been heated and therefore damaged the protein. Make sure the nuts and seeds are raw. It is even better if you soak them in a bowl of water overnight to activate enzyme action and pre-digest the protein. Protein powder is not generally a good option because it is heated to high temperatures during processing. However, there are a few that are raw. In general, if your diet consists of only cooked protein, you are missing half the boat. Find ways to include raw protein in your diet safely. Your body will love you for it!

Do Big Dogs Equal Stronger Economy?

Is our growing preference for larger dog breeds a sign that the economy is recovering? According to the American Kennel Club, that’s a possibility. Owning bigger breeds -- an economic indicator of sorts -- have been on the rise during the past five years,Ó said Lisa Peterson, an AKC representative. ÒAs the economy has improved, people are turning back to the big dogs they love, which cost more to feed and care for than the smaller breeds that saw a rise in popularity in 2007 and 2008.Ó That’s an odd statement to make, considering the most popular large dogs have never been out of the AKC’s annual top 10 breeds. The Labrador Retriever has held the No. 1 spot for 23 years, and the German Shepherd and Golden Retriever consistently make the top five. The Dachshund and the Yorkshire Terrier are the only small breeds to consistently break into the top 10. It raises questions about what the AKC thinks of dog owners. What were we doing when we were supposedly out of love with big dogs six years ago? What about owners who prefer smaller dogs? While financial problems are often cited as a reason for owners to neglect or abandon their dogs, the size of the dog isn’t the biggest cause. Smaller breeds can cost just as much or more to care for, and I’ve met many owners who would gladly go hungry to make sure their pet has food. Owners have many reasons for choosing the pet they bring into the family. Economic concerns are an important consideration, but responsible owners consider a lot of factors, such as the breed, its size, potential behavioral or health issues, apartment or homeowner association rules, and local pet ordinances. It’s irresponsible of the AKC to correlate breed size with growth or dampening of the economy and smacks of bias by the organization.

REAL ESTATE TALK

With the recent job report, the forecast for mortgage interest rates is seen to not have any immediate increases. This continues the affordability of buying vs renting. In a recent poll held by Inman news Only 2% feel it's better to rent vs. Buy. Where as 77% feel that buying a home is a good investment as well as a place to live. With the tight lending on mortgage loans we have seen a national slow down in home sales since January. However, locally home sales continue to outpace last years sales rate. The main positive point with tighter lending is the steady decrease in short sales and distressed properties. An additional positive result is that resell home values continue to inch up in values. All the above factors continue to assure we are in a stab sliding housing market. What are you waiting for? Now is a great time to buy it sell property! Contact a Realtor today.

A: Spay is the common term for the medical procedure ovariohysterectomy. In this surgery the pet's ovaries are removed and the uterus is also removed to insure that it does not become a source of infection. If the surgeon simply tied or obstructed the Fallopian tubes (the channel where the eggs must pass into the uterus) in order to make the female dog or cat sterile, she would still come into heat, attract males, and attempt to breed. Spaying females prior to their first heat cycle which usually occurs at 5-6 months old in cats and dogs, nearly eliminates the risk of breast cancer and totally prevents uterine infections and uterine cancer. Every heat cycle increases the risk of breast cancer substantially.

What is Tidbits?

A “tidbit” is defined as “a tasty morsel to be enjoyed before the meal”. And that's just what Tidbits® is – a non-controversial, weekly paper dedicated to publishing entertaining morsels for the mind, food for thought as it were: trivia, fun facts, amusing stories and oddities. Our unique editorial blend is what hooks our readers and keeps them coming back for more. They will seek out each week’s new issue and take copies home or to the office to share with family and friends. As merchants discover this loyalty, more and more will want to place their marketing message in front of our readership. The following are excerpts that have appeared in actual Tidbits issues: • After playing hooky all morning, four teenage boys scurried into class with the tale that their car had had a flat tire. The teacher seemed very understanding, but informed them that they had nonetheless missed a quiz. However, she would kindly allow them to make it up, and instructed them to take their seats. The first question for the boys to answer: “Which tire was flat?” • A certain species of tern winters in Antarctica, and flies 11,000 miles every year to get there. Since the birds have a lifespan of up to thirty years, it is possible they could fly well over half a million miles during their migrations. • A very interesting golf course is located in North Dakota. Well, part of it is in North Dakota. The other part is in Canada. Tee off on the ninth hole in Canada, and find the cup in the United States. This particular ninth cup collected its first hole-in-one in 1934 when George Wegener hit the ball in one country and scored in another. • A woman went to the post office to buy stamps for her Christmas cards. “What denomination?” the clerk asked. “Good heavens,” the woman exclaimed, “it’s come to this? Well, then, give me fifty Baptist ones and fifty Catholic.” • More collect calls are made on Father’s Day than any other day of the year. • In culinary lore, the cookie was invented when a baker placed a dab of cake dough in the oven to test the temperature. The Dutch appropriately dubbed the ensuing creation “koekje,” little cake.

Brain Differences between Men and Women

Everyone knows that men and women think differently. On the whole, men tend to be more analytical, and women more communicative, with enhanced verbal skills. Now a study that reviewed Susan Ashley MD over 20 years of neuroSpecializing in: science into sex differ• Bio-Identical ences in brain structure Hormones • Autism/ADHD shows why. drug-free treatment A total of 126 articles • Brain Health/ Dementia were included in the • Food allergies study, covering brains • Energy Medicine from individuals as • Chronic Fatigue/ Fibromyalgia young as birth to 80 • Pediatrics/ years old. Sport Physicals They found that males • Anti-Aging Medicine on average have larger total brain volumes than women (by 8-13%). And no, this doesn’t mean they’re smarter. Looking more closely, differences in volume between the sexes were located in several regions. These included parts of the limbic system and the language system.

Specifically, males on average had larger volumes and higher tissue densities in areas such as the amygdala, hippocampus, cerebellum, and elsewhere. By contrast, females on average had higher density in the left frontal pole, and larger volumes in the right frontal pole, and other structures of the brain. Why is this important? It may help to explain the differences in psychiatric diagnoses seen in men and women. Specifically, why males have a higher risk of autism and schizophrenia, whereas females have a higher risk of depression and anxiety. There is much research being done in this area, but for now, protect your brain by taking omega 3’s daily. Another great supplement that provides brain protection from environmental and other toxicities is lithium orotate, at a dose of 5-10 mg at night. Taking this nightly will also help prevent dementia. And please note, this is not the same lithium as the drug that is used in patients with bipolar disorder. Men truly are from Mars, and women really are from Venus - at least in our brains!

Dear Auntie M.,

Why is the world so confusing? I don't know who to believe anymore. I subscribe to a bunch of newsletters for things I'm interested in, but lately I feel like they only want to sell me something. Each one seems to have ‘the answer’, ‘the way’, ‘the cure’, ‘the latest and greatest’ - just take this, do that, believe this, buy now before it’s too late. How do I discern? Even the TV networks report the news with a different twist - who’s right? And how can every product, medication, service and company be the best one? No wonder there is so much conflict in the world. Everybody wants to be right. But doesn’t that make a lot of things wrong? I try to be objective but I find I'm overwhelmed by all the choices and differing opinions. Can you help? Mixed Up in Mullen Dear Mixed Up, You may be experiencing information overload. The mind is like a computer - it stores and retrieves information. If your hard drive is full you need to delete, defrag and run a virus program. An early programming saying was 'garbage in, garbage out.' Overloading your mind causes overwhelm, confusion and stress. Take an information holiday. Turn off the computer and TV for a week. Be more physical, less cerebral. Just try it. Freedom of Speech lets everyone have their own agenda and be right - for them; you don't have to agree. Clear your mind. Get back to what's important to you. You’ll find you’ll be clearer, have more time, and probably sleep and feel better. See it as fun and it will be! Please send your questions or comments to DearAuntieMmm@gmail. com. I shall be frank and honest with my response and provide resources where appropriate.
