by Kathy Wolfe They creep, they crawl, they scuttle. This week, Tidbits studies up on the good, the bad, and the ugly of creepy crawlies of the world. • What makes a creature an insect? In order to be classified as an insect, it must have three body parts (the head, thorax, and abdomen), six jointed legs, two antennae, and an outside skeleton. That counts out spiders and centipedes! There are 1,017,018 known species of insects in the world, but experts feel there might be another nine million that haven’t yet been discovered. Ninety-five percent of all the animal species on Earth are insects. • Insects are divided into 32 orders, with beetles as the largest order. There are 125 different families of beetles, and half a million different species. Did you know that one out of every four animals on Earth is a beetle? In fact the world’s largest insect is a beetle found in South America, the longhorn beetle measuring 9.85 inches (25 cm). The world’s heaviest insect is also a beetle, the African Goliath beetle, which can weigh up to 3.4 oz. (96 grams). • There’s a difference between an insect and a bug. A bug is actually an insect with characteristics other insects don’t have, such as a stylet mouth (one that is shaped like a straw) that is used to suck plant juices. True Turn the page for more!

It is one of the most adaptable creatures on Earth, which makes getting rid of them very difficult. There are more than 4,000 species of this pest worldwide. They are coldblooded and can live without food for a month. They can even survive for a week without a head. Because they breathe through little holes in each body segment, they don’t need a mouth or head to breathe. After a week of being unable to drink water, they die of thirst. A cockroach is able to hold its breath for 40 minutes, and can survive being under water for 30 minutes. No wonder they are so hard to get rid of! It doesn’t take long for a cockroach to spread bacteria throughout a home – they can run 3 miles per hour (4.8 kg/hr).

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Your capacity for forgiveness is at an all-time high this week. Habitual schedules seem unsatisfactory and you may be feeling restless. A lack of money could cramp your style. TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Remain skeptical of the advice you receive. You may be able to voice some convictions of your own this week, but arguing over the beliefs held by others could stir up trouble. GEMINI (May 21-June 20): You could binge when buying in bulk. You could be convinced that you’re handling your money in a reasonable manner this week, but may overspend because you go to extremes. CANCER (June 21-July 22): Develop insights about business matters by catching up on a backlog of reading. Others may be able to sway your opinions this week with an appeal to your fair and generous nature. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): It might be a very good idea to review the lyrics of the Logical Song to prepare for the week ahead. People may make promises they can’t keep or come to decisions based on scanty facts. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): Your enthusiasms are contagious and likely to set off sparks of friendliness with interesting new people this week. Adventures that provide a break from routine are in the stars. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22): When something goes wrong, there are those who insist that it’s someone else’s fault, and refuse to take the blame. A lack of responsibility or extravagance could irk you in the upcoming week. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21): You could be possessed by a wild urge to do something entirely foolhardy as a spotlight on finances causes friction. Keeping up with the Joneses’ will only cause problems this week. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): Your inner wisdom receives an opportunity to grow and flourish in the week ahead. Your belief system may alter as you learn to test your viewpoints. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): Thoughts are like bubble gum; you chew them until they lose their flavor and toss them aside. Refine and re-evaluate your views, and remain honest with yourself in the coming week. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): Finances may be the focus of your drive and initiative this week, as you weigh the pros and cons of different ways to handle your budget. Take the lead from those you trust. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): A creative idea of yours is worthy of effort. Maintain your serenity, even if others are unreliable or if cash seems to slip through your fingers this week. Kindness and sympathy are assets.

“The Bone Season” by Samantha Shannon Reviewed by Ealish Waddell Under the regime of Scion, having any psychic ability at all is a crime, but having a rare dreamwalking talent like Paige’s means an even bigger target on your back. Paige scratches out a dangerous living reporting on others for her underworld boss, but after she accidentally kills a Scion guard, that precarious protection is shattered. She is captured and taken away -- but instead of the execution she expects, she finds herself in a secret prison at the heart of a centuries-old conspiracy. It turns out there is an even greater power behind Scion, a godlike race called the Rephaim that wants not to destroy the voyants’ powers, but to control them for their own dark purposes.

of brutality and despair, where beasts lurk beyond the gates and monsters just as frightening hold the keys. Paige tries to look out for her fellow inmates while avoiding the attention of the cruel Rephaites, especially their vicious leader, who wants Paige’s ability for her own, and her inscrutable guardian, whose own motives are dangerously unclear. But Paige is a survivor, which is the power she’ll need most as she tries to get a handle on what exactly she is capable of and how far she is willing to go for her freedom. “The Bone Season” takes place in an alternate timeline that uses a dash of the supernatural to rearrange history into a completely unpredictable future. The story starts weird and just keeps getting weirder, and it requires some patience on the part of the reader to suss out how this world works.

The author claims this is the first in a planned sevenbook series, so there may be a ways to go before all secrets are revealed. But the questions are intriguing enough to suggest that the answers are worth waiting The penal colony is a hole for.

Moose Jaw Glass Windsheild Replacements

Volunteer at the Moose Jaw Humane Society

Auto Glass Specialists

Rock Chip Repairs SGI Accredited 30 Years Experience

Locally Owned & Operated 909-High Street West Bay #4 306-972-6909

Now that warmer weather is finally here, many people are looking for ways to get out and volunteer in the community, and there is no busier spot than the Moose Jaw Humane Society. Everyone feels the urge to do all they can to help the animals, and without the valuable contribution of our volunteers, the Humane Society simply could not do what we do. Certain jobs are done exclusively by staff, but there are still lots of ways you can help out. Volunteers are asked to fill out a volunteer form and provide a copy of their ID, and must go through a brief volunteer orientation with staff. Devoted to Dogs - Dog walking is the most popular way people choose to volunteer at the Shelter. It is a benefit to both the volunteer by providing exercise with a canine companion, as well as to the dogs through socialization and stimulation outside of the Shelter environment. Volunteers are asked to commit a minimum of 20 minutes for each dog walked. Volunteers must be at least18 years old to participate in the Dog Walking Program. Volunteers under age 18 must be accompanied by an adult. Dog walkers are asked to visit the Shelter during pet viewing hours (noon to 5 p.m.). Cat Cuddlers - Cat cuddlers spend one-on-one time with the kitties at the shelter, either up close within their cages or in an approved shelter area. This program helps to enhance the lives of cats waiting for their forever homes and provides stress relief for longer-term cats by having a chance to stretch their legs and get some extra affection. It also helps socialize cats, which in the end makes them more adoptable. Shelter Helper (AKA “Dirty Jobs”) - Want to pitch in and help even more? Shelter Helpers help to wash and dry pet dishes, wash, dry, fold and put away pet bedding, sort recycling and deliver it to SARCAN. They can also assist with snow shoveling/removal, raking leaves or lawn mowing. The job of a Shelter Helper is much appreciated by the shelter staff, as having volunteers assist with these projects enables them to directly concentrate on animal care. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old or be accompanied by an adult to participate in the Shelter Helpers Program. Fundraising Events - The Shelter holds many special events throughout the year, which are so vital to raising funds to best care for the animals. Fundraising Volunteers help with event set-up, ticket selling, poster distribution, penny parade, book sorting or working in our book sales or Christmas shop. We are always looking for outgoing helpers and organizers. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, or be accompanied by an adult, to participate in Fundraising Events. To everyone who volunteers their time to help out the Humane Society, the staff and animals thank you from the bottom of their hearts!

1 year old male Connor is the man with the golden purr. This golden boy is so handsome, and so loving, you will be won over by this guy in a flash.

of spots has nothing to do with this beetle’s age. The number and placement of spots are determined by its species and are fixed well before the ladybug is born. • Many countries, including Russia, Turkey, and Italy consider the ladybug a sign of good luck and those folks will make a wish when one is sighted. Ladybugs are very useful creatures, as they feed on aphids and other garden pests. • Termites cause nearly $5 billion in damage every year. These wood-destroying insects can destroy a home from the inside out before a homeowner even notices. Add up the weight of all the humans on Earth, and it will be less than the total weight of all the world’s termites! About 10% of the world’s animals are termites. Damp wood is an ideal nesting place for termites. So avoid infestation by dealing with leaking plumbing issues immediately. Be sure water drains away from the house, don’t stack any wood next to your home, and keep an 18” (45 cm) gap between soil and your foundation. Although termites can be extremely destructive, they can be ecologically beneficial. They break down dead and decaying trees in the forest into rich new soil. • Another 10% of the world’s animals are ants, with at least 1.5 million ants for every human being on the planet. There are more than 12,000 species of ants, and they can be found on every continent except Antarctica. One acre of Amazon rainforest is home to up to 3.5 million ants. Ants are hardy creatures, able to survive 24 hours underwater, with many varieties able to swim. They are the longest living of all insects, with a life span of up to 30 years. When seeking food, the colony sends out a scout ant, who wanders about until it finds a food source. After eating some of the food, the ant heads back to the nest in a straight line, leaving a trail of secreted pheromones, a scent that the other ants will be able to follow back to the food. • Massive communities of ants called supercolonies have been discovered stretching for thousands of miles, with the largest ever found over 3,750 miles (6,000 km) wide. Ants are capable of carrying 5 times their body weight with their mandibles. • The 40,000 different species of spiders are arachnids, not insects, since they have eight legs and only two body segments and have no antennae. While birds and bats eat a significant amount of insects, spiders eat more than those combined. • The largest species of tarantulas have a leg span of nearly 10 inches (25.4 cm) and have been known to kill mice, lizards, and birds. When tarantulas feel threatened, they defend themselves by throwing needly, barbed hairs at their attackers. Being hit by one of these causes an irritating rash and sometimes an allergic reaction, but very rarely does it result in death. Tarantulas molt continually, replacing their exoskeletons as they grow. This gives them the ability to even regenerate legs that have been lost. They are very fragile creatures, and a fall from a short height can easily kill them. The female tarantula can live 20 years in captivity and 30 years or longer in the wild. However, males have an average lifespan of between five and ten years.

Did you know that famous funny-man Dan Aykroyd hails from Canada? Here’s the scoop on this Ontario-born actor, comedian, and screenwriter. • Aykroyd was born in Ottawa on Canada Day, July 1, 1952. His father, a civil engineer, was a policy advisor to Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau, while his mother worked as a secretary. Dan was born with two unusual physical characteristics, syndactyly, meaning he has webbed toes, and heterchromia – his right eye is green and his left eye is brown. • It was Aykroyd’s original ambition to become a priest, and he attended Catholic academies until age 17. He switched gears and decided, as the grandson of a Canadian Mountie, to study criminology and sociology at Carleton University, although he dropped out before finishing. For a time, he worked as a mail sorter for the Canadian postal service, as a train brakeman, and as a surveyor. • Aykroyd started out in comedy in assorted Canadian nightclubs. He met John Belushi in Toronto where Belushi was scouting out talent for the National Lampoon series. In 1975, the pair were hired for the new late-night show Saturday Night Live. Aykroyd, hired as a writer and doubling as a cast member, was just 23, the youngest on staff. For the program’s first four

seasons he established himself as a talented impersonator, famously mimicking Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Julie Child, and Rod Serling. He was the well-known father of SNL’s Conehead family and one of the “wild and crazy guys” alongside Steve Martin. Aykroyd received an Emmy Award for his writing in 1977, and four other nominations during his tenure. He and Belushi created the black-suited, sunglasswearing Blues Brothers duo for the show and took it to the big screen in 1980 with a highly successful movie. AYKROYD (continued): • The idea of Ghostbusters came to Aykroyd from his fascination with the paranormal after reading an article about quantum physics. He and fellow actor Harold Ramis wrote the script in a Martha’s Vineyard bomb shelter, tailoring the roles to fit John Belushi, Eddie Murphy, and John Candy. When Belushi died of a drug overdose in 1982 and Murphy and Candy were unavailable, the script was tweaked and Bill Murray, Ramis, and Aykroyd starred in the 1984 smash hit and its 1989 sequel. • In 1989, Aykroyd switched to a dramatic role in the classic Driving Miss Daisy and received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his efforts. • Over the years, he has continued writing and acting, and occasionally appearing on Saturday Night Live. He last appeared as guest host of SNL in 2003. • In keeping with his love of the blues, in 1992,

Aykroyd co-founded a nightclub in Cambridge, Massachusetts called The House of Blues, an operation that has grown into 13 locations. He also owns several wineries in Canada’s Niagara region. • Aykroyd’s wife Donna Dixon, whom he married in 1983, was a former Miss Virginia in 1976 and Miss District of Columbia in 1977. The couple has three children. Although a permanent resident of the United States, he retains his Canadian citizenship and maintains an estate on Ontario’s Loughborough Lake. Every year, he spends his Canada Day birthday performing civil service in Kingston, Ontario, including swearing in new Canadian citizens.

¥ It was beloved “Peanuts” cartoonist Charles Schulz who made the following sage observation: “Life is like a 10-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use.”

¥ If you’re like the average American, you will consume 22 pounds of lettuce this year. ¥ You might be surprised to learn that some fish can hibernate. During the long, dark winters, the Antarctic cod will burrow under the seabed and stay there for days at a time, cutting its metabolism by two-thirds. ¥ The name of the state of Wyoming comes from the Algonquian word chwewamink, which translates as “at the big river flat.” ¥ If you pay attention to politics at all, you’ve almost certainly heard the term “gerrymander” used to describe the practice of carving

up electoral districts in such a way that one party has an advantage. You probably don’t know, though, how that term entered the lexicon. In 1812, a new district in Essex County, Massachusetts, was created, and a journalist thought the twisting boundaries caused the district to resemble a salamander. A cartoon highlighting the resemblance was created, and because the party that did the redistricting was led by Gov. Elbridge Gerry, the practice was dubbed “gerrymandering.” ¥ Even the world’s best high jumper is unable to stay in the air for more than a single second. ¥ Before he became a comedian and actor, Bob Newhart worked as an accountant at the Illinois State Unemployment Office. ¥ Those who keep track of such things say that Elvis Presley had 18 TVs at Graceland. One of them was installed in the ceiling over his bed. *** Thought for the Day: “It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.” -- Carl Sagan

Canadian Tid-bits

▶What Canadian hockey player is the only professional hockey player to have a career that spanned five decades? Gordy Howe, who played from 1946 – 1980. Gordy was ambidextrous, able to shoot equally well either left or right-handed. ▶One brother was a champion center, and another brother was a renowned goalie, and both brothers are in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Who are they? Phil and Tony Esposito. In 1998, Tony was ranked number 79 on The Hockey News list of the 100 Greatest Hockey Players, 61 places behind his brother Phil, who ranked number 18. ▶Hockey pucks are usually placed in a freezer for ten days prior to NHL games, because frozen hockey pucks bounce less and slide better. ▶Soucy Baron in Quebec produces the official hockey pucks used by the NHL. It is one of only a few hockey puck factories in the world. They produce about 5 million pucks each year. ▶When Fox television network held the NHL broadcasting rights for the U.S., they developed the “smart puck” which held integrated circuits which allowed television viewers to track its position on screen. The system debuted with much publicity in the All Star game at the Boston Fleet Center on January 20, 1996, but the system was shelved when Fox Sports lost the NHL broadcast rights three years later. ▶The all-time speed records for a hockey puck are held by Zdeno Chara who holds the NHL record of slapping a puck at 108.8 mph (175 km/hr), and Denis Kulyash who holds the world record when, during an All Star Game in Russia in 2011, he smacked the puck 110.3 mph (177.58 km/hr) ▶The gravestone for Thomas Thompson says, “Please walk on the grass.” Thompson was Toronto’s first parks commissioner. ▶Jimmy Claxton, the first black player to be depicted on a baseball card, was born in B.C. in 1892

Paramedic Services Week

May 25-31, 2014 “Our Family Caring for Yours”


Page 9

24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year… PARAMEDICS are there when you need them!

Paramedic Services Week is a time to take a moment to acknowledge the dedication and commitment paramedic professionals deliver to the public as a part of the healthcare team; there when you need them and there to help!

PRESSURE WASHERS 4930707/033011

STARTING THIS WEEK: “ENDLESS LOVE’’: Also the source of a 1981 Brooke Shields movie that yielded a classic title song (no trace of which is found here), Scott Spencer’s novel also is the basis of this passable update starring Alex Pettyfer (“Magic Mike’’) as a young man whose involvement with a former classmate (Gabriella Wilde, “Carrie’’) leads her to change her plans for her future ... which makes her father (Bruce Greenwood) determined to break them up, with unforeseen results. Joely Richardson and Robert Patrick also star. DVD extra: “making-of ’’ documentary. *** (PG-13: AS, N, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand) “STALINGRAD’’: Originally shown in 3-D and IMAX, this drama by renowned director Fedor Bondarchuk (son of iconic filmmaker Sergei Bondarchuk) examines the World War II invasion of the title city from several perspectives ... those of the Russian soldiers trying to protect it, a civilian who remains there and the German military men determined to overtake the locale. The highest-grossing movie in its native country to date, the film includes Thomas Kretschmann (“King Kong,’’ TV’s “Dracula’’) in its cast. DVD extra: “makingof ’’ documentary. *** (R: V) (Also on Blu-ray) “THE BOB NEWHART SHOW: THE COMPLETE SERIES’’: In one of the classic sitcoms of the 1970s - back in the days when Saturday nights were a television powerhouse - famously low-key comic Newhart transfers his persona onto the role of Dr. Bob Hartley, a Chicago psychologist. He has a level-headed schoolteacher wife (Suzanne Pleshette), an airline pilot neighbor (Bill Daily), a dentist (Peter Bonerz) sharing his office suite, and a wisecracking receptionist (Marcia Wallace). Jack Riley and John Fiedler also gets considerable laughs as a couple of Hartley’s patients. Still funny after all these years, the show is bound to stir nostalgic feelings for more than a few viewers. *** (Not rated: AS) “CIMARRON STRIP: THE COMPLETE SERIES’’: It lasted only one season on CBS (1967-68), but this Western was distinctive for several reasons ... one evident in the opening credits, a theme by celebrated movie composer Maurice Jarre (“Doctor Zhivago’’). Also, it was one of the rare 90-minute series, and star Stuart Whitman was among its producers. He plays Marshal Jim Crown, who tries to keep residents of the Kansas frontier region safe. Jon Voight, Robert Duvall and Telly Savalas are among the many guest stars. DVD extra: interview with Whitman. *** (Not rated: AS, V) “THE KENNEDYS: TRIUMPH AND TRAGEDY’’: Two programs related to the legendary political family are compiled in this box set, along with memorabilia connected to the JFK assassination. “The Kennedys’’ is a two-part documentary that uses the lives of John, Robert and Edward (aka Ted) as springboards to profile the entire clan, while “Oswald’s Ghost’’ uses interviews - with Dan Rather and author Norman Mailer, among others - to reconstruct that fateful day in Dallas in November 1963. *** (Not rated) “PIONEERS OF TELEVISION: SEASON 4’’: Shown recently by PBS, the fourth of the miniseries detailing home-screen history starts with a look at stand-up comics who transitioned to sitcom success, such as Jerry Seinfeld, Roseanne Barr and Bob Newhart. Other episodes consider medical shows (with actor Chad Everett’s final interview included), the TV styles of such comedians as Robin Williams and Tina Fey, and the racial barrier breakthroughs made by such stars as Desi Arnaz and Bill Cosby. *** (Not rated)

Since May 24 is National Escargot Day, let’s take a look at another creepy crawly, the snail. • Snails aren’t insects, but rather are gastropods, a member of the Mollusks phylum along with slugs and conches. Their one-piece shell is coiled or spiraled. Gastropods rank second behind insects in the number of named species. Snails are triploblastic protostomes, which is a fancy way of saying they are made up of three parts – one foot, a head, and an unsegmented body. • The thousands of snail species include land snails, sea snails, and freshwater snails. The French delicacy escargot is simply cooked garden snails. (The name escargot is the French word for snail.) They are prepared by removing the snails from their shells and cooking in garlic butter, chicken stock, wine, and thyme or parsley. The snails are then placed back into their shells and served with the sauce. • That little garden snail has 14,000 teeth, all of which are on its tongue. It hibernates during the winter while living on its stored fat. Although most ground snails are passive little

vegetarians, sea snails are predators with a sharp tongue resembling a harpoon that injects a deadly venom into their victims. The poison of certain cone snails can kill a human. • Since a snail could never hope to escape a predator, if danger is nearby, snails can withdraw completely into their shells. A flat plate on the back of their foot called the operculum seals up the opening. • How can you tell a male snail from a female snail? The answer is…you can’t! A snail is actually both, as they are hermaphrodites, which means their reproductive organs enable them to both lay eggs like a female and fertilize them like a male. • Snails produce a thick slime as they move which protects them as they travel across any kind of terrain. They can even crawl across the edge of a razor and come out uninjured, due to this shielding lubricant. The slime also creates a suction that enables them to crawl upside down. • Everybody knows that snails are slow movers, but just how slow are they? The average adult moves along at about 0.04 inches (1 mm)

per second. Some travel at 0.0004 miles per hour. If those snails could circumnavigate the Earth, it would take upwards of 7,000 years. The speckled garden snail is the fastest, able to navigate at speeds up to 55 yards per hour (50.3 m), compared to just 23 inches per hour (54.4 cm) for most land snails. • Snails have very poor eyesight and cannot hear, so their senses of touch and smell are very important in the task of finding food. • The world’s largest snail is the Australian trumpet, a sea snail found on that continent’s northern and western shores. Its shell is as large as 30 inches (77.2 cm) in length, and the flesh can weigh as much as 40 lbs. (18 kg). The length of most species of snails ranges in size from a fraction of an inch to 12 inches (30.5 cm).

Bed bugs are very difficult to get rid of. These hardy pests can live for a year or more without eating and can withstand temperatures from nearly freezing to 122 degrees F (50 C). And they`re not just found in beds, they burrow in chair cushions, behind electrical outlets, in cracks around baseboards, and behind picture frames.
