TIDBITS® CONSIDERS THE CATERPILLAR CLUB

by Janet Spencer In 1928, Paul Fisk Collins jumped from a disabled plane over Pennsylvania and was saved by his parachute. On February 11, 1944, his son, Paul Liske Collins, jumped from a disabled plane near Fairbanks, Alaska, and his life was also saved by his parachute. Together, they were the first father-son team to join the Caterpillar Club, whose membership is entirely composed of people whose lives were saved by parachutes. Come along with Tidbits as we consider the Caterpillar Club! The Father of Parachutes • Leslie Irvin didn’t invent parachutes, but he did revolutionize them by packing them into backpacks. In 1922, he founded the Caterpillar Club, honoring those who had to place their lives in the hands of their parachutes. Because the parachutes were made out of silk, and the silk came from caterpillar cocoons, the Caterpillar Club was born. The club’s motto is, “Life depends on a silken thread.” • Charles Lindbergh’s life was saved by an Irvin parachute four times in two years. In 1925 he was involved in a mid-air collision and bailed out. Three months later he jumped when his plane would not come out of a spin. In 1926 he ran out of fuel and jumped. Seven weeks later he was caught in a snowstorm and bailed out. (Continued next page)

Tidbits® of of Kootenai County, Idaho Issue #7 Feb 10th. 2014 A CLUB IS BORN • On October 20, 1922, U.S. Air Corps test pilot Lt. Harold Harris walked out to a fighter plane at McCook Field in Dayton, Ohio. The plane had been fitted with experimental ailerons the previous day and he was to test it. Harris stopped to clip on his parachute, but was annoyed to find that the straps were too tight. He traded it for a different one but found that the straps were too tight on that one as well. He decided to fly without one. After all, no one had yet had their life saved by one of the new-fangled contraptions. But suddenly Harris changed his mind and decided to wear one. • In a friendly dogfight with another test pilot, Harris was turning, diving, and zooming when his plane suddenly went out of control. He went into a dive and could not recover. When pieces of the wings started tearing away, Harris jumped. He felt for the ripcord on his parachute and pulled three times. Nothing happened. He discovered he’d been pulling his leg strap fitting. He yanked the ripcord when he was just 500 feet (152 m) off the ground— far too low for a safe jump. The chute opened, and he drifted down, landing unhurt in a grape arbor. Lt. Harold Harris was the first person ever to have his life saved in an emergency situation by a manually-operated parachute. • Harris was able to refute many myths. Many people felt that a falling human would become unconscious. Others maintained arms and legs would be pinned by the wind or would flail helplessly. Parachute trials were limited because pilots believed if someone jumped out of a plane, the sudden loss of weight would send the plane into an uncontrollable spin. • When Harris landed unhurt, one of the people who helped him celebrate his good luck was Leslie Irvin, the man who had designed the parachute.

Caterpillar Club (cont’d) • S.L.G. Pope bailed out when the rudder gave out. He was only 800 feet (244 m) off the ground when he jumped. He yanked on the ripcord again and again with no result— then discovered he’d been pulling the string holding a pencil to the knee pad that he scribbled flight data on. He was only 300 feet (91 m) off the ground when he found the ripcord. The chute opened barely in time to save him. Pope was the first Royal Air Force pilot whose life was saved by a parachute. His friends sent a telegram: “Congratulations. Forwarding clean pair of pants.” • When World War II hit, the demand for parachutes skyrocketed and Irvin’s factory went from a pre-war output of 100 parachutes per week to nearly 1,500. Applications for membership in the Caterpillar Club shot up, and at the parachute factory a huge bulletin board held pictures and letters from pilots who owed their lives to Irving Parachutes. By the end of 1943 there were over 27,000 members, with a hundred or more applications arriving daily. One pilot wrote: “I am going to name my son (when I have one) Irvin as it was due to one Irvin in particular that I am alive enough to woo, marry, and get me a son.” • Irvin himself witnessed the effectiveness of his parachutes when the crew of an American bomber bailed out near his factory while he was watching. He drove to where they were floating down, and five minutes later the two lucky pilots were in his office being signed up for the club and toasting their luck with the inventor’s whisky. • Leslie Irvin agreed to give a gold pin to every person whose life was saved by one of his parachutes. At the end of World War II the number of members with Irvin pins had grown to over 34,000 though the total of people saved by Irvin parachutes is estimated to be 100,000.

REAL ESTATE TALK

Heating up for a a Sellers' Market Continued talk about rising mortgage rates has motivated buyers to gel of! the fence and buy their home. buyers are entering the housing market in fear they may "miss the boat" an affordable housing. This has sellers finding that they have more leverage in negotiating the going prices of heir homes. Due to the lack of inventory, More and more we are hearing of bidding wars. Local!y we have seen more total homes sold and homes selling faster, Just this last month Additonally, Studies show that existng home sales have a 20% cumulative increase over 2 years. Some sellers may want to hold off selling to see if home values increase more but there is the risk that the price gains will slow or even slip back, depending an the mortgage rates and job economy.Also the increase in new construction will help supply the market, creating more compeltion and competttive prices for existing homes.mortgage experts predict the mortgage rates to rise further wtthin the year. This is based on the government beginning to slow its bondbuying program. The impact on buyers will be twofold: Some will likely pick up the pace of their home search so that they can lock in a mortgage before rates get too much higher.Separately, as rates rise, they won't be able to qualify for as large of a mortgage as theycan now, this could push the buyer outside of their budget, since higher rates create higher mortgage payment. "The expectation is that costs to buy later will be higher than they are now•

PAW’S CORNER By Sam Mazzotta By Dr. Holly Carling

AUTO-IMMUNE DISORDERS: WHEN THE BODY GOES CRAZY

Have you noticed how many auto-immune diseases exist today? Everything from Lupus, to Auto-Immune Thyroid disorders to Psoriasis to Rheumatoid Arthritis. In fact there are over 80 defined auto-immune disorders today. They are rampant. While much attention is put into treatment by drugs to suppress the immune system, what we should be asking is “why would a perfectly functioning immune system, suddenly turn on itself?” What went wrong? Certainly the body is no happier in this state than the victim is. An autoimmune disorder is when the white blood cells that normally help protect the body, can’t tell the difference between normal body tissues and antigens, which harm the body. Antigens are bacteria, viruses, toxins and blood or tissues from another person or species (i.e. an organ transplant). As a result of this mis-identification, the immune system destroys its own healthy body tissues, causing a breakdown in the tissues or in organ function. Auto-immune diseases range from a mild or occasional hypersensitivity to foods or substances to full-blown disability. Help is available for all stages, although it is preferred to start treatments early on. Treatments that have shown effectiveness in supporting healthy immune function and symptom control include acupuncture, homeopathy and good nutritional counseling. Acupuncture is particularly helpful in reducing the pain and inflammation associated with most auto-immune disorders. It is also quite effective in supporting healthy immune function. A diet of whole foods, avoiding common “allergy foods” such as dairy products and wheat have shown positive results in a large percentage of people. Avoiding sugar in all stages is a must as sugar has a definite negative impact on the immune system. Stress is considered a common trigger for auto-immune disorders. Although everyone has stress, there are ways to help you cope with stress better so it has less of a negative effect on the body. These would include the therapies listed above, but also chiropractic and massage therapies. One of the most common accolades received from patients enjoying acupuncture treatments is that they cope with stress better, relax better and feel more energy. They are happy with the reduction in their symptoms and general sense of wellbeing. No treatment is complete without the patient taking an active role in getting well. A good diet is stressed, as is healthy lifestyle choices. Although we are not conclusively sure of exactly what causes auto-immune disorders, we are clear that it takes work on the part of the sufferer, teamed with a competent practitioner to get well. Dr. Holly Carling is a Doctor of Oriental Medicine, Licensed Acupuncturist, Doctor of Naturopathy, Clinical Nutritionist and Master Herbologist with over 34 years of experience. Dr. Carling is currently accepting new patients and offers natural health care services and whole food nutritional supplements in her Coeur d’ Alene clinic.

Do Pets Really Need Vitamins? DEAR PAW’S CORNER: My neighbor insists that giving vitamin supplements and “homeopathic” treatments to her dog “Gracie” is key to her health. I disagree that a pet needs so much extra help. Doesn’t pet food provide enough nutrients? -- Les in San Diego DEAR LES: That answer really depends on the pet and the type of food it’s eating, and partly on the disposition of the owner. Dogs are living beings just like us, and need regular feeding, exercise and medications when they’re sick. Owners naturally want their pet to be as healthy as possible, which is why the pet supplement market continues to grow. Want your dog to have a shiny coat? There’s a vitamin for that. Vitamin and mineral supplements for pets are as varied as similar supplements for adults, and should be given after an owner has done his or her homework on the best vitamins for their pet. Veterinarians often recommend specific supplements to help pets stay healthy or recover after an illness or injury. Senior pets also frequently are given certain supplements to help with sore joints and other health problems that accompany aging. Homeopathic remedies also are popular. Many owners swear by off-the-shelf general treatments like Rescue Remedy, which helps calm anxious pets. Pet foods, while providing all-around nutrition for dogs of different sizes, increasingly have added supplements to their formulas. Owners should be aware of which specific supplements are in their pet’s food, to avoid giving too much of a particular vitamin or mineral. And of course, check with your pet’s veterinarian about whether supplements are needed, what kind and how much. Send your questions or comments to ask@ pawscorner.com.

Q: Is Your Computer You?

Hurting

A: Movement And Stretching Are Important To A Healthier You! Article Courtesy of Coeur d’Alene Hand Therapy & Healing Center You’ve been on the computer all day. At home you may be playing that new video game “the kids” got for Christmas, catching up with work from the office or starting tax preparation. That pain between your shoulder blades, bleary eyes, neck, back and hand pain or strain is not just part of the computer “game.” Pain, stiffness and reduced blood flow affect your ability to concentrate and be your most productive self at home or work. In the long run, you can cause damage to your body that may present as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis and headaches. All this from a computer? Well, bodies were made for moving. When we were hunters and gatherers, we used all the muscles in our bodies, not just upper body and hands. Continued poor posture or holding your body in one position and using the same muscles for long periods of time, reduces the blood flow and places stress on the body. We now do more upper body work, are more sedentary, live longer and put more repetitive stress on our bodies than ever before. What can we do? First of all, MOVE!! Don’t sit more than a half hour in one position. Don’t wait until you hurt. If you have long periods of computer work to do, break it up with other tasks. Stretching can help, but it needs to be done throughout the day. How is your computer position? You may have heard the word “ergonomic” which is simply fitting the workstation to the worker. Keeping the body in a neutral, relaxed position is important. Using the right equipment such as a supportive chair, wrist rest and document holder can be a big factor. If these things do not improve the problem, don’t wait until you are in a crisis – seek help! A trained therapist can help you reduce pain, release tightness, strengthen and set up your work station so that you can be “computer healthy.

by Samantha Weaver • It was famed cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead who made the following sage observation: ÒOne of the oldest human needs is having someone to wonder where you are when you don’t come home at night.Ó • If youÕre like the average American, you will eat about 150 bananas this year -- 26 poundsÕ worth. • Up until the 1500s, the accepted way of dealing with a patient who was hemorrhaging was to cauterize the wound, often with boiling oil or red-hot irons. It was in the latter part of the 16th century that a French surgeon named Ambroise Pare began tying off the broken blood vessels with cord. ThatÕs pretty much what surgeons do today. • ItÕs been estimated that a million pigeons live in New York City. • When pop star Christina Aguilera is on tour, she insists on having a police escort. She hates to be stuck in traffic. • Next time youÕre heading to Illinois, you can stop off in Metropolis and visit the selfdeclared birthplace of Superman. In honor of their hometown superhero, the citizens erected a 15-foot bronze statue of him on Main Street. • It was Abraham Lincoln who signed into law the legislation that created the Secret Service. That very night, he was assassinated. • Those who study such things say that on the 13th of every month, triskaidekaphobia causes a loss of $83 million to American business due to absenteeism from work and other disruptions. • In the United States, more babies are born on Oct. 5 than on any other day of the year. If you do the math, youÕll find that New YearÕs Eve is 9 months and 5 days before that.

More health tips in the news: by: Susan Ashley MD

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Doing something nice for others is typical of the generous Arian. But be prepared for some jealous types who might try to question one of your more recent acts of kindness. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) You’re eager to take on new responsibilities. But before you do, you might want to check out exactly what would be required of you so that you don’t face any “surprises” later. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) It might be best to put off an important decision until a fluctuating situation becomes more stable. Recently received news could help resolve a long-standing family matter. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) If you still have a problem getting that information gap closed, you might consider asking a higher authority to resolve the matter, leaving you free to move on to another project. LEO (July 23 to August 22) A family matter needs to be dealt with at the start of the week. Once it’s resolved, the Big Cat can devote more attention to that new opportunity that seems to hold so much potential. VIRGO (August 23 to September 22) Pay attention to those niggling doubts. They could be warning you not to make any major decisions until you’ve checked them out -- especially where money matters might be involved. LIBRA (September 23 to October 22) A business venture might need more of your attention than you are able to provide. Consider asking a trusted friend or family member to help you work through this time crunch. SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21) A more-positive aspect helps you get a clearer focus on how to handle your time so that you can deal with several responsibilities that are just now showing up on your schedule. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 to December 21) A very close friend (you know who that is!) has advice that could help you work through a confusing situation. So put your pride aside and ask for it. You’ll be glad you did. CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 19) A workplace situation could turn a bit tense. The best way to handle it is to confront it and deal with it openly. Doing so can help reveal the underlying reasons for the problem. AQUARIUS (January 20 to February 18) A colleague’s remarks appear to be especially cutting. But don’t waste your time or your energy trying to deal with the situation. You have more important things to do. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Support for your work comes as a surprise from someone you thought was critical or, at least, indifferent. Your spouse or partner has big plans for the weekend.

BORN THIS WEEK:

Your spiritual strength often acts as an inspiration to help others make decisions about their lives. (c) 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

The newest rheumatoid arthritis drug, Xeljanz, comes with a black box warning that it can cause tuberculosis and lymphoma. It's also expensive - $24,000/year. Medical mistakes are the 5th leading cause of death in the US. Calcium channel blockers are linked to an increased risk of breast cancer. Women taking these meds - amlodipine, diltiazem, isradipine, nicardipine, nifedipine, nisoldipine and verapamil - for greater than 10 years had a 2.5 times grater chance of getting breast cancer. Skim milk can actually cause weight gain and is more toxic than whole milk. Numerous studies have shown that high blood pressure is not linked to sodium. Indeed, low sodium levels is linked to heart and kidney disease, and in the elderly, fatigue, confusion and dizziness. Hearing loss is connected to Alzheimer's disease, and a deficiency of folate, vitamin B12 and Zinc. The one treatment that is nearly 100% effective in reversing type 2 diabetes is weight loss. Even losing 5-7% of body weight cuts diabetes risk in half. 90% of hormones are regulated by your brain. A slow brain causes a slow body, and is often the cause of chronic fatigue syndrome. Eating 2 kiwis a day can eliminate depression. Low vitamin D is associated with brittle bones in the elderly, and can actually "age" your bones.

Dear Auntie M.,

I try hard not to gossip. I’ve made great strides toward keeping my mouth shut where before I wouldn’t have been able to resist “sharing” juicy information. So herein lies the problem. I have a dear friend who loves to gossip. I’ve even told her I prefer not to speak nor listen to information about others, but she continues to do so. We share an office space, so it is difficult to move away when she does this. Auntie M, I am trying to live a more gossip-free life, and I highly value this friendship. What can I do? Gossiped Out Dear Gossiped Out, There is a quote that goes “Whoever gossips to you, will gossip about you.” Society and the media have trained us to accept gossip as information, and the more sensational the better. Gossiping among friends is portrayed as a bonding activity but as you so wisely know, it is ultimately destructive. Look at limiting your time in the office or rescheduling your hours. Discuss the above quote, put it on the wall, and, if she agrees, declare the area a ‘gossip free zone.’ To value her friendship as you do she must have goodqualities - nurture those and ask to collaborate rather than gossip. Recreate the relationship; be an example for others. Worst case you may have to redefine your friendship and work towards getting a new office mate. Stand strong and be true to yourself! Please send your questions or comments to DearAuntieMmm@gmail.com. I shall be frank and honest with my response and provide resources where appropriate.
