OVERCOMING THE ODDS; DAVE DRAVECKY Little boys dream of playing in the big leagues, as did Dave Dravecky, who pitched his first no-hitter as a teen. After attaining his dream, tragedy struck. Yet this inspirational man picked himself up and has gone on to help those plagued by disease. Hats off to this courageous gentleman! • Ohio-born Dravecky was 26 years old when he was drafted by the San Diego Padres and made his Major League Baseball debut in 1982. The lefthanded pitcher won 14 games in his second season and represented the Padres in 1983’s All-Star game. The next year, he contributed to the Padres’ first-ever pennant. • In 1987, the San Francisco Giants acquired Dravecky, who was at the peak of his career. On the 1988 season’s opening day, he pitched a 5-1 victory over the Dodgers. Late that season, a desmoid tumor, a rare type of cancer that develops in the tissue that forms tendons and ligaments, was discovered in his pitching arm. Dravecky underwent surgery that October, and half of the deltoid muscle (the one that forms the rounded contour of the shoulder) was removed. In addition, the long humerus bone in his arm was frozen in an attempt to eradicate all cancerous cells. • Dravecky’s circumstance might have been a career ender for a lesser man. His doctors told him, “Short of a miracle, you’ll never pitch again.” But he was determined to make a comeback, and defying

● On June 14, 1968, Dr. Benjamin Spock is convicted in Federal District Court of conspiring to aid, abet and counsel draft registrants to violate the Selective Service Act. Spock, a physician, was the famous author of “The Common Sense Book of Baby and Child Care.”

all odds, the following July, he was pitching in the minors. The next month, August of 1989, a miracle happened, and Dravecky was back on the mound for the Giants in an amazing comeback game against the Cincinnati Reds at Candlestick Park. He pitched eight innings and the Giants defeated the Reds 4-3. • Five days later, Dravecky was in Montreal, up against the Expos. He started off the game with three no-hit innings, another incredible deed. In the sixth inning, he allowed a home run on the first batter, and hit the second batter. With the third batter came what has been called “the pitch that could be heard around the world.” Dravecky’s humerus bone broke in two, and in his words, “You could hear the popping noise of my arm breaking all over the stadium. I never felt that kind of pain in my life. It felt like my arm was coming off.” In the postseason playoffs, the Giants won the National League pennant, and as the ecstatic team piled onto each other, his arm was broken again. • As doctors X-rayed the broken arm, a mass was discovered, and it was confirmed that the cancer was back. Eighteen days later, Dravecky announced his retirement and entered a new phase of his life. In 1990, he published a book “Comeback,” which detailed his battles with cancer and his remarkable return to baseball. What he thought was his recovery continued, with surgeries and radiation, yet his arm was actually deteriorating. In June of 1991, his arm, shoulder blade, and left side of his collar bone were amputated in an attempt to save his life. • Dravecky’s second book, published in 1992 was entitled “When You Can’t Come Back.” He has gone on to become a highly sought-after motivational speaker. Along with his wife Jan, he has also founded a non-profit organization, Endurance, to support those affected by cancer.

clear information. Then we sit back and wait to see what information comes in. Psychic abilities are very common. It’s been my experience that most people are born with at least one of the psychic gifts. And as is true with many things, if we study something, after a time it becomes easier for us. Frequently this is simply because we become familiar with the terms and how things work. The same is true with psychic abilities. One of the exercises we do in class is designed to help us open our third eye, also known as our minds eye. The ability to see something clearly without it being in front of us. We can all do this with a memory. Think back to a trip you took as a teenager. The longer spent, the more we remember. We can put ourselves there. We can remember what it felt like, smelled like. If it was hot or cold. We can hear people laughing and remember what it sounded like no matter how far back in time it was. This is what it’s like to use our third eye. The biggest difference is that psychics are concentrating on something that’s in someone else’s memory or their future.

These exercises can be done by anyone and they are quite fun. For practice you need to find someone who will be honest with you about the information you might be getting. Always stay relaxed. Always stay open. And never take yourself too seriously. Having fun is the most important part to everything we do. Find a quiet, comfortable place to practice. If it helps, imagine you have an eye in the middle of your forehead that you can open and close. Then open up, clear your mind, ask for information and see what happens. You might surprise yourself with what you learn. If you are interested in studying and expanding your gifts feel free to contact me about classes or a reading. Thank you for your interest and attention. Till next time, stay in touch with yourself, with your life, and with those loved ones who have moved on. U if!!Sfmvdubou!Qtzdijd

UNDER THE SEA (continued) • The squid, snail, octopus and clam are all examples of mollusks, soft-bodied creatures with no internal skeleton. Some mollusks have a hard outer-shell; some do not. More than 85,000 species of mollusks have been identified, and most probably there are many more that have not yet been discovered. • The common squid can be found in all of the oceans of the world. Most are about 24 inches (60 cm) long, but the giant squid reaches lengths of 43 feet (13 m). In 2003, an even larger species was discovered, the colossal squid, which may grow to 46 feet (14 m). When in danger, the squid emits a cloud of ink from a sac to confuse its predators. This mollusk has the largest eyes in the animal kingdom; in fact, the colossal squid’s eyes have a diameter of about 11 inches (28 cm). • Certain octopuses have a life span of only six months. Even the longer-living species only live about four years. Reproduction takes its toll on this sea creature, with males surviving only a few months after mating and females dying within a short time after their eggs hatch. An octopus, like the squid, is a cephalopod, which translates to “head to foot” because its appendages are attached to its head. Also like the squid, the octopus ejects a cloud of dark ink when threatened by predators. The ink is colored by melanin, the same compound that gives humans our hair color. Not only can the octopus eject ink for protection, it can instantly camouflage itself, changing the color of its skin to match its environment. • The largest octopus is the Giant Pacific Octopus, which swims in the waters off British Columbia. Their average weight is usually about 33 pounds (15 kg), with an arm span of about 14 feet (4.3 m) and rarely exceeds 90 pounds (40.8 kg). However, the occasional one is found that lives up to the name “giant,” such as the largest ever caught, which weighed about 600 pounds (272 kg). • The mythological mermaid first appeared in stories around 1,000 B.C. An Assyrian legend tells of the goddess Atargatis falling in love with a mortal shepherd. When she accidentally killed him, she was so devastated, she jumped into a lake and took the form of a fish. Although beautiful, mermaids don’t have a very good reputation. Folklore tells of them singing to

people to enchant them, then luring them to their doom. Rather than rescuing drowning sailors, they squeeze the life out of them. British tales speak of seeing a mermaid as an unlucky omen, one that foretells of impending disaster. The blue whale is the largest animal in the world, weighing between 100 and 150 tons (100,000 to 150,000 kg). Even at birth, they are huge — 23 to 27 feet long (7 to 8.2 m) with a birth weight of three tons (2,722 kg)! A calf will nurse for about eight months, during which it will drink 100 gallons (379 l) of milk every day, putting on about 200 pounds (91 kg) a day. That’s eight pounds (3.6 kg) an hour! When a calf is weaned, it is 52 feet (16 m) long and weighs about 23 tons (20,900 kg). Just the tongue of a blue whale has a weight of 2.7 tons (2,700 kg), more than an elephant. Fifty people could stand on it! Its mouth can hold up to 90 tons of food and water, but strangely enough, the whale’s throat dimensions only allow for it to swallow an item the size of a beach ball. The heart weighs 1,300 pounds (590 kg), the size of a small car, and beats just 10 times per minute. Its major arteries are large enough for a small child to crawl through. “Benthic marine algae” is a fancy name used by scientists for seaweed. Seaweed is used for everything from food to medicine to fertilizer. People in some Asian countries consider some varieties a great delicacy and receive health benefits from its rich deposits of calcium, magnesium and iodine. Folks in Belize mix it with milk, nutmeg, cinnamon and vanilla for a popular beverage. Germans add seaweed’s compounds to many of their beers. You’ll find it in cosmetics, wound dressings, toothpaste and diet pills. Exclusive spas offer seafood wraps for the body. At the hardware store, seaweed is present in paints and fertilizers. An echinoderm is characterized by “racial symmetry,” that is, several arms radiating from a central body. The most familiar echinoderm is the starfish. Although we think of the starfish as having five arms or “rays,” there are several species that have six or more. Some have 10 to 15 arms, and the Antarctic species Labidiaster annulatus can even have up to 50! A starfish’s mouth is found on the underside of its body, and many of these creatures swallow their prey whole. Although the lifespan of the average starfish is about 10 years, some live past 30.

deemed them safe and reliable. By scanning these codes and entering these sites, you do so at your own choice. Falcon Prince Inc. it's subsidiaries and assigns are not responsible for the reliability of the content contained herein or at these sites, nor for any adverse effects to any electronic device, its data and programs used to go to these sites.


Catching a Code QR code (abbreviation for Quick Response code) is a specific matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) that is readable by dedicated QR barcode readers and now smart phones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text, URL, or other data. The QR code was created to allow its contents to be decoded at high speed. Although initially used for tracking parts in vehicle manufacturing, QR codes now are used in a much broader context, including both commercial tracking applications and convenience-oriented applications aimed at mobile phone users (termed mobile tagging or object hyperlinking). The main reason why they are more useful than a standard barcode is that they can store (and digitally present) much more data, including url links, geo coordinates, and text. They come to us from Japan and are everywhere in the cities there. In the U.S.we are seeing it's use sparingly but with recent hyper growth.The idea behind using it is so smart phone users don’t have to type a long URL to get to your site, or for that matter just about any information page or document you want to send them to. Smart phones are saturating the market, with more than a billion being sold in the last year. The phone needs a QR code reader application which is gennerally free and now more commonly packaged with the phone. It takes literally 1 minute for someone with an iPhone or Android phone to find and install a reader. You can easily generate a QR code using a site like Kaywa.com. Latest generation smart phones need to merely sense the location of a code with their camera to bring you

to the link and sometimes even directly to the web page or document. In addition to seeing them QR codes here in Tidbits® you are starting to see them in magazine advertisements, on product price tags, on billboards, or even on someone’s t-shirt. Once it is scanned into your phone, it may give you details about that business (allowing users to search for nearby locations), provide information on the product, or details about the person wearing the t-shirt or a favorite site of theirs (Beware of course, there may be some sites you'd not want to get to.), A code could also show you a link you can click to see a trailer for a movie, or perhaps a coupon to use in a local outlet. Basic ideas for QR codes? – put it on your flyers, business cards or any printable material. Beyond that, here’s a list of what some companies have used QR codes for: As part of a contest A scavenger hunt promotion A way to send mobile users to watch a video (promotional, educational or otherwise) A way to get mobile users to sign a petition A way for customers to accumulate rewards As smartphone adoption rises and technology companies embrace the technology, QR Codes are becoming a mainstream portal to gather information and we are only just scratching the surface of how they will be used.

â&#x2014;? If you own a sport utility vehicle, beware: Statistics show that they roll over three times more often than other passenger cars.

â&#x2014;? Do animals grieve their own? Perhaps so -- at least, some animals. When an elephant dies, other elephants in the herd will cover the body with leaves and branches and often will stay with the body for days.

â&#x2014;? If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning a trip to Wisconsin this summer, be sure to stop in the town of Middleton. This is where youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the Mustard Museum, billed as â&#x20AC;&#x153;home to the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest collection of mustards and mustard memorabilia.â&#x20AC;? The museum is the brainchild of Barry Levinson, a former assistant attorney general for the state of Wisconsin, who says that in October of 1986, after his favorite baseball team lost the World Series, he was wandering the aisles of a grocery store in the wee hours of the morning looking, as he puts it, for â&#x20AC;&#x153;the meaning of life.â&#x20AC;? He says that as he passed the mustards he heard a voice saying, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you collect us, they will come.â&#x20AC;? And so he did. This summer is a good time to visit, since Aug. 6 is the 20th annual Mustard Day.

â&#x2014;? You may not be surprised to learn that, according to a poll conducted by The Associated Press, Americans hate math twice as much as any other subject.

â&#x2014;? You may be surprised to learn that there is a growing interest in the new sport known as chess boxing. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a hybrid sport in which competitors alternate 4-minute rounds of speed chess with 2-minute rounds of boxing. Since 2008, there have been 10 international competitions in London alone.

â&#x2014;? The next time youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re planning a European vacation, make time to visit the coast of the Netherlands, where you can stay in one of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most unusual hotels. Along the banks of the Wadden Sea youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find Harlingen Harbour Crane, an actual derrick that was once used to haul timber. These days it holds aloft luxurious sleeping quarters designed for only one party at a time. If you need a change of scenery, just head to the control room to swing the crane around until you find a view that strikes your fancy.

â&#x2014;? When a baby is born it has more than 300 bones in its body, but due to bone fusion, adults end up with only 206 bones.

â&#x2014;? If summer where you are is starting to heat up, just be grateful you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live in western Australia. There, the average temperature is 96 degrees F. -- all year long.

â&#x2014;? It was American author Paul Auster who made the following sage observation: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Only the good doubt their own goodness, which is what makes them good in the first place. The bad know they are good, but the good know nothing. They spend their lives forgiving others, but they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgive themselves.â&#x20AC;?

There is some pretty intriguing life in the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oceans, and this week, Tidbits dives into examining some of the unusual creatures found there. â&#x20AC;˘ Probably the most feared shark and frequently called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;man-eater,â&#x20AC;? the great white shark actually prefers a dinner of sea lion rather than human prey. The speciesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Latin name Carchardon Carcharias, translates â&#x20AC;&#x153;jagged teeth,â&#x20AC;? and indeed, this shark has about 3,000 teeth, all arranged in several rows. They find their prey very easily due to their extreme sensitivity to the electrical field surrounding living creatures, perceiving half a billionth of a volt. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re found in every major ocean, and have a life span of more than 30 years. How likely are you to experience an unprovoked attack by a shark? Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re more likely to die from a lightning strike. â&#x20AC;˘ Due to the publicity generated by the death of adventurer Steve Irwin, lots of folks believe that the manta ray can kill a human. Irwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chest was pierced by a stingray, not a manta. The manta is the largest of all rays, up to 25 feet (7.6 m) across, weighing as much as 5,100 pounds (2,300 kg). While its tail is similar to that of a stingray, it does not have a stinger and is harmless to swimmers.
