• This week was significant in amusement park history. On June 16, 1884, America’s first roller coaster opened on Coney Island in Brooklyn, New York. The Switchback Railway, as it was called was a 600-foot wood structure that traveled at about 6 miles per hour. At the cost of a nickel per ride, the coaster generated $600 a day, and had paid for itself in just three weeks. Although the coaster was torn down, Coney Island’s famous Cyclone roller coaster sits on the same site. The Cyclone, which opened in 1927, reaches speeds of 60 mph, and has an 85foot drop. It’s one of America’s oldest coasters still in operation. On June 21, 1893, the Ferris wheel made its debut at Chicago’s Columbian Exposition. Measuring 250 feet in diameter and requiring 100,000 parts, with 36 cars each carrying 60 people, the wheel was the brainstorm of a 33-year-old Pittsburgh engineer named George Ferris, Jr. For the 19 weeks of the fair’s operation, more than 1.4 million people rode the Ferris Wheel, paying 50 cents for the 20-minute ride. Unfortunately, the wheel created several legal issues for George Ferris, who was bankrupt just three years after the fair closed. He then contracted typhoid fever and died at age 37. The Ferris wheel became an integral part of the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, but two years later, it was dynamited and sold for scrap. • June 16, 1903 was a big day in the business world. It’s the day that Henry Ford and his 12 stockholders gathered in Detroit to sign the paperwork to incorporate the Ford Motor Company. It had been seven years since Ford had built his first gasoline-powered vehicle in the workshop behind his house. ...continued

• One month after the Ford Motor Company was established, the first Ford vehicle was assembled at a Detroit plant. Elsewhere in the business world, on the same day in New Bern, North Carolina, Caleb Bradham was registering the official trademark for his invention, Pepsi-Cola. Originally known as “Brad’s Drink” and served at Bradham’s downtown drug store, it was a mixture of sugar, water, caramel, lemon oil, and nutmeg. He renamed it Pepsi-Cola, taking the term from the word dyspepsia, meaning indigestion. Bradham claimed it was a healthy drink, and used the slogan, “Exhilarating, Invigorating, Aids Digestion” • All eyes were on the television screen on June 17, 1994, as a white Ford Bronco raced down a California freeway, chased by Los Angeles policemen. They were chasing former football great O.J. Simpson, who had been charged that morning with the murder of his wife Nicole and her friend Ronald Goldman. Simpson was scheduled to surrender at 11:00 AM, but instead fled in the Bronco to the Santa Ana freeway, where he engaged police in an hour-and-a-half pursuit before surrendering in the driveway of his Brentwood home. He was arraigned on June 20, 1994, and “The Trial of the Century” began, ending in Simpson’s acquittal in 1995. • On June 18, 1983, astronaut Sally Ride stepped aboard the space shuttle Challenger, the first American woman in space, as well as the youngest American astronaut at age 32. The physicist and engineer had answered an ad in the Stanford University student newspaper, announcing the search for applicants for the U.S. space program. At age 27, she was chosen by NASA to join the program. After leaving NASA in 1987, Ride returned to Stanford, this time to work at the Center for International Security and Arms Control. She later became a physics professor at the University of California. ...cont'd

• Sally Ride wasn’t the first woman in space. That honor belongs to Russian cosmonaut Valentina Tereshkova, who rocketed into space aboard Vostok 6, almost 20 years to the day before Ride, on June 16, 1963. Prior to her career in space travel, Tereshkova was a textile factory worker and amateur skydiver.

• The French ship Isere cruised into New York Harbor on June 17, 1885, bearing the 350 individual pieces of the Statue of Liberty, a gift of friendship from the people of France. Once reassembled, the 450,000-lb. statue was taller than any NYC structure at the time. It was officially dedicated in October of 1886.

• The College of Philadelphia (today’s University of Pennsylvania) granted America’s first medical diploma on June 21, 1768. Dr. John Archer graduated from the Department of Medicine, but strangely enough, began practicing law the following year rather than pursuing a medical career. He was instrumental in organizing troops for the Revolutionary War, became a major in the Continental Army, and was elected to the U.S. Congress three times from the state of Maryland. • June 21, 1939 was a sad day in baseball history when the New York Yankees announced the retirement of their first baseman Lou Gehrig. Gehrig’s performance on the field had been declining for several weeks that Spring, and after undergoing six days of intensive testing at the Mayo Clinic, Gehrig was informed he had an incurable disease called amyotrophic lateral sclerosis that would lead to paralysis, and eventually death. Gehrig played his final game on April 30, the 2,130th consecutive game of his career. He died at age 37 on June 2, 1941, the anniversary of the beginning of his consecutive game streak.

• In order to “make a difference,” Burchard urges practicing generosity, not just with money, but also with time, attention, love, patience, forgiveness, and energy. • Burchard has built his life around some simple advice he received from his father: “Be yourself. Be honest. Do your best. Take care of your family. Treat people with respect. Be a good citizen. Follow your dreams.” He advocates, “Be an example of the kind of conduct you wish to see in the world. Do not expect love, excellence or generosity if you do not radiate such things.” • The near-death experience moved him to write his first book Life’s Golden Ticket. During his 20s, he studied psychology and leadership while working at a consulting firm. His second book, The Millionaire Messenger, shot up the “New York Times Best Seller List,” enabling Burchard to strike out on his own as a performance coach and motivational speaker.

• Burchard has identified three specific kinds of fear and pain experienced by most people – loss, hardship/disaster, and disappointment. Many resist trying new things because of fear of losing status, power, or relationships. Others fear the pain of disappointment when things don’t succeed as desired, while some fear the struggles and doubts that come from trying to change. His mantra is to ask oneself, “What if instead of fearing disappointment, I can imagine a positive future?” or “What if instead of hardship, I can honor or enjoy the learning process?” • Burchard recommends setting boundaries by saying “no” to false obligations. Eliminating ineffective habits and negativity and replacing them with positive new rituals and high performance habits will help people focus on their mission. • He credits much of his insight to the thousands of comments, stories, and feedback from his students, which has equipped him to understand the struggles and habits that helped them develop. • “Be aware of the information that’s entering your mind. Seek empowering information that moves your life forward.” -- Brendon Burchard


• If Montana-born Burchard hadn’t had a life-changing event at age 19, he might not have become the inspiration that he has become to millions. After surviving a near-fatal car accident, Burchard identified what he felt were life’s three vital questions, which have served as the inspiration for his teachings: “Did I live fully? Did I love openly? Did I make a difference?” He has made it his life’s purpose to help others live, love, and matter.


“No matter how small you start, start something that matters.” That’s wisdom from Brendon Burchard, the motivational speaker who is Tidbits’ focus this week.

• The online course he developed has been completed by more than 1.5 million students in 192 countries. Burchard has the #1 self-help series, “The Charged Life,” on YouTube. It’s his desire that everyone reach their full potential, and has made it his objective to help people set high performance goals. The first step is to define the mission, and define what stands in the way of achieving it. A person should set three small life-changing goals for each day, starting the day with an attitude of anticipation. Study up on individuals who have mastered the same mission and pay attention to successful people.




Remarkable People

• On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire becomes the ninth and last necessary state to ratify the Constitution of the United States, thereby making the document the law of the land. Delaware, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Georgia, and Connecticut were the first to sign. • On June 22, 1937, in Chicago's Comiskey Park, Joe Louis wins the world heavyweight boxing title when he knocks out Jim Braddock in the eighth-round. Louis was the first black heavyweight champ since Jack Johnson, who lost the title in 1915. • On June 20, 1947, Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, who brought organized crime to the West Coast, is killed in a hail of gunfire at his home in Beverly Hills, California. Siegel got his start in Brooklyn, where he terrorized peddlers and collected protection money in the 1930s. • On June 23, 1959, after nine years in prison, Klaus Fuchs, the German-born Los Alamos scientist whose espionage helped the USSR build its first atomic and hydrogen bombs, is released from a British prison. • On June 18, 1966, Gen. William Westmoreland, senior U.S. military commander in Vietnam, requests an additional 111,588 troops for the war in 1967, bringing the total to 542,588. • On June 19, 1972, the U.S. Supreme Court rules against Curt Flood in Flood v. Kuhn, denying him free agency as a baseball player. He was trying to break the reserve clause that tied players to one team. Three years later an arbitrator ruled in favor of free agency, but it was too late for Flood, who never played baseball again. • On June 17, 1994, "O.J." Simpson, a former football player suspected of a double murder, flees along I-405 in Los Angeles in a white Ford Bronco with police in pursuit. News helicopters followed from above, and millions watched on television. Simpson was arrested at home an hour later. © 2019 Hearst Communications, Inc. All Rights Reserved

Repellents: Still One of the Best Ways to Prevent Mosquito Bites Unfortunately, there’s no easy solution to controlling mosquitoes. The more rain and standing water we have, the more mosquito habitat available for those pesky critters. Eliminating mosquito breeding sites is essential to keeping the mosquito population in check. When the adult mosquito population seems unbearable, turn to one of the best prevention methods available…a can of OFF! Mosquito repellents with DEET are safe and very effective when applied according to the label. They’ve even improved many of these products so they go on dry, not oily. Don’t let these pesky critters win the outdoor battle this summer. Eliminate any standing water on your property and apply repellents with DEET when outdoors.

• “When you have a delicate lampshade, or one that has a textured fabric, it can be hard to get the dust off. One method that I’ve used is a lint roller. This works well for flat but textured, when a dusting rag would make it stick worse. If you have pleats, sometimes the best way is to remove it and take it outside, then use canned, compressed air to blow the dust off.” — Y.L. in Arizona • To de-fat a broth, simply put it in the freezer. As the broth cools, the separated fat condenses at the top. You can peel it right off or scoop it away with a spoon. • Coffeepot got a layer of grime? For a little extra scrub power, use a tablespoon of baking soda mixed with a few drops of dish soap. It’s a minor abrasive, and it deodorizes, too. Rinse clean and repeat if necessary. • “Here’s a great summer activity: Save toilet paper rolls and paper towel cores, plus any small boxes. Add small hook and loop squares on the corners and sides. Then, kids can use them as free-form building blocks. It’s fun to see what kinds of things they create. Save larger boxes to create a backyard castle using duct tape or packing tape to join boxes.” — V.E. in Pennsylvania • “I dropped an earring down the disposal in the kitchen. It was hard to see and even harder to get at. I was at the point of despair. My lovely husband tied a string around a magnet and was able to pull it out.” — W.E. in South Carolina • Deskinning chicken pieces is easier if you use a paper towel to grab onto the skin.

• It was noted 20th-century American playwright Arthur Miller who made the following sage observation: "Maybe all one can do is hope to end up with the right regrets." • When creating its cocoon, the silkworm spins a continuous thread more than a thousand yards long, or 12,000 times the length of its own body. To accomplish a comparable feat, a 6-foot-tall man would have to spin a thread that stretched unbroken for 15 miles. • You may be surprised to learn that the onion is actually a lily, botanically speaking. • In 2016, Michigan State University received a delivery of inedible mayonnaise -- the mayo had been frozen and thawed during transit, spoiling all 10,000 pounds of the condiment. Instead of just throwing it out, MSU decided to put the bad mayo to good use. The campus already had an anaerobic digester -- a device that decomposes organic waste and converts it to methane -- so they poured in all 500 2.5-gallon tubs. • Guinness, that notoriously dark and bitter brew, contains fewer calories that skim milk or orange juice. Stout for breakfast, anyone? • If someone were to ask you to name the sunniest spot on Earth, you might be tempted to answer "the Sahara Desert" or some other such exotic place. You would be wrong, though; that distinction belongs to a town right here in America. Out of the possible 4,456 daylight hours each year, the sun shines for an average of 4,050 in Yuma, Arizona. That means that there's cloud cover or rain for only about 10 percent of the time there. *** Thought for the Day: "Whatever a man prays for, he prays for a miracle. Every prayer reduces itself to this: Great God, grant that twice two be not four." -- Ivan Turgenev

• The movie’s fictional Amity Island was actually filmed on Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts, beginning in May, 1974. Several of the local folks were hired as extras on the movie and were paid $64 to run across the beach screaming.

• Jaws was the first major film to be shot on the ocean, which created all kinds of trouble, causing the film to drastically exceed its budget and miss its scheduled completion by 104 days. The film’s budget was set at $4 million, but the final bottom line ballooned to $9 million. Problems with the mechanical sharks contributed to a huge increase in the special effects budget. The very first day the model shark was put in the water, it sank to the bottom of the ocean. Malfunctions continued with the pneumatic hoses filling up with salt water, and corrosion of the props’ skin. • Spielberg, just 28 years old, wanted moviegoers to feel as if they were treading water, and so filmed about 25% of the movie at water level. This presented the problem of unwanted watercraft drifting into view, as well as making actors seasick much of the time. ...continued
