This application is less an issue of willpower, and more a realization that nothing tastes as good as it does to feel good. Remember what the founding father of Western medicine, said: “Let thy medicine be thy food, and thy food, thy medicine”. Also it's not just about what you eat, but how you eat. For instance, studies have shown that people eat a whopping 40 percent more food when watching TV. Imagine how much healthier we could all be if we stepped away from the tube while we ate. Meals should be an endeavor where we are fully conscious of what we are doing and the importance it brings to healthy life. In other words, apply yourself to, eating to live not living to eat! Start by removing all the sodas and junk food from your diet. Colored, flavored sugar water does nothing for your health and happiness. Research has also shown to that artificially sweetened sodas actually lead to weight gain through insulin signaling.

If the results are within the labs “normal” range the individual is told they are fine.

SECRET CODES (continued): • On December 6, 1941, Japan was preparing to mount an attack on Pearl Harbor. A Japanese spy in Pearl Harbor walked right up to the telegraph office in town and sent a dispatch to his confederates describing where the warships were located. The telegram cost $6.82 and apparently nobody in the telegraph office thought it was suspicious. • On Dec. 6, 1941, a new employee at the Office of Naval Intelligence, Mrs. Dorothy Edgers (who had been employed there only a month), decoded an intercepted Japanese message that indicated Honolulu was to be the target of a Japanese attack. She showed it to her superior officer, who said it needed more work and could wait until Monday. • In May of 1942, the Japanese were preparing to mount a major attack somewhere in the Central Pacific. The U.S. had broken the Japanese code and were aware of the impending attack. However, they didn't know what the target would be. The Japanese called the target "AF" and the Americans could not figure out what place that denoted. Then they came up with a scheme: they had Midway send an uncoded message saying their water distillation plant had broken down and they were short on drinking water. Then they monitored the Japanese transmissions. Two days later, they intercepted a coded message from Japan

Page 2

reporting that "AF" was short of drinking water. When the Japanese descended on Midway, the American forces were ready and waiting. • When agents stormed the Japanese embassy in Portugal, they seized a Japanese code book, thinking it would be helpful to the Allies. What they didn't know was that the Allies had already broken the code. Now that Japan knew the code book had been stolen, they changed the code. It took a year before the U.S. could break the new code.

World War I • When American decoding experts intercepted and deciphered a message from Germany to Mexico, they found that Germany was offering Mexico a large chunk of the United States if only Mexico would join with them in the war. This message was pivotal in pushing the U.S. into World War I. • Zeppelin L-49 was returning to Germany during World War I after having bombed London. It was over France when it ran out of fuel. There was no way the aircraft was going to make it back to Germany. The captain, knowing they were doomed to be captured, knew it was essential to get rid of the code books. But he couldn't burn the books because the zeppelin was filled with flammable gas. So he ordered his men to shred the books and toss the pieces of paper over the side. When they were captured,

Colonel Richard Williams of the U.S. Army Intelligence was frustrated when he found that the code books had been destroyed. So he sent the troops out to search the ground following the path the airship had taken. By nightfall they had collected 22 sacks full of tiny scraps of paper. Williams set his men to the task of reconstructing the book. By midnight they had put together a complete map of the North Sea showing the call sign positions for a U-boat rendezvous. • William and Elizabeth Friedman were a married team of cryptanalysts who were instrumental in cracking many codes. Once the British sent them some sample messages from a new encoding device they were considering using throughout the British Army. Within three hours of receiving the five messages, the Friedmans had deciphered them. The first message, ironically enough, said, "This cipher is absolutely indecipherable."

Earlier Wars • A captured slave was brought to General Lysander, leader of the Spartan forces around 400 B.C. A message the slave was carrying was handed to the General. There were many hostilities going on, so Lysander suspected the message would bear important information. However, it did not. Then he noticed the slave's belt was decorated with a series of letters that made no sense. He took the belt and wrapped it around a

thin rod. There, down the side of the rod, was a perfectly legible message. It said that the Persians— who were supposed to be allies of the Spartans— were planning to take over. Thus forewarned, Lysander rushed his forces back to Sparta and ruined the plot. • Around 300 B.C. Histiaeos was the governor of the ancient Greek city Miletus. He was being held under guard and couldn't get any messages out— but it was imperative that he inform his people behind enemy lines that he planned to overthrow Darius, the king of Persia. He shaved the head of his servant and tattooed the message on his scalp. After the hair grew back, he sent the servant out on an errand. The message was delivered. • During the Revolutionary War, messages were sent via Anna Strong's clothesline. She signaled an American spy whenever a boatman was ready to carry secret messages across Long Island Sound. A black petticoat hung out to dry meant that the boatman was waiting. The number of hankies next to it indicated which cove he was hiding in. • Paul Bernard was a French spy in World War I who sent his secret messages home by writing the essential information in the top right-hand corner of postcards, and then putting postage stamps over the writing. • Thomas Jefferson invented a coding instrument called the wheel cipher that is still used by the U.S. Navy today.

SILLY PUTTY

• During World War II, Japanese invasions of rubber-producing countries in the Far East vastly reduced availability of rubber in the U.S. In the 1940s, the U.S. War Production Board asked General Electric for help in developing a cheap substitute for rubber so that production of things such as boots and tires could continue. G.E. hired James Wright, who created a compound after accidentally dropping some boric acid into silicone oil in 1943. • It stretched further than rubber; rebounded higher than rubber; was impervious to mold and decay; and could withstand all temperatures. The only problem was that scientists could find no real use for the stuff. In 1945, G.E. mailed samples to scientists all over the world, asking them to find a purpose for it. • Paul Hodgson happened to attend a party where some of the stuff was brought out. It entertained the partygoers for hours. He teamed up with the owner of a toy store and Silly Putty outsold everything else in the company catalog with the exception of a 50 cent box of crayons. Still, the store owner wasn't interested in pursuing Silly Putty, so Hodgson split off on his own. In 1950 Hodgson bought a huge glob of the stuff for $147 and hired a Yale student to separate it into one ounce balls and put it into plastic eggs, perhaps because Easter was coming up. Several months later when Silly Putty was mentioned in the "Talk of the Town" section of the New Yorker magazine, Hodgson's phone rang off the hook and he collected a quarter million orders in only four days. A few years later, he was racking up sales of over six million dollars annually. Hodgson was soon a millionaire. • Today, Binney & Smith, owners of Crayola, own the rights to Silly Putty.

Page 4

It comes in 16 different colors including glow-in-the-dark, glitter, metallic gold, and hot flourescent colors. There's also Silly Putty that changes color depending on the temperature of your hands. You can even buy a five-pound block of Silly Putty for only $79. • In 2001 Silly Putty was inducted into the National Toy Hall of Fame located in Salem, Oregon. In addition, one of the original Silly Putty eggs is on display at the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History. • Binny & Smith sponsored a contest asking people to submit their silliest uses for Silly Putty. The winner suggested using it to replace your stockbroker by throwing a ball of it at the stock page in the newspaper and investing in whatever stock it lifts from the newsprint. Second place went to the woman who said it could be used to form a fake swollen gland to get out of an unwanted date. • What exactly is Silly Putty made of? Mostly it’s dimethyl siloxane, hydroxy-terminated plymers with boric acid. Add in a little thixotrol ST, a dash of polydimethylsiloxane, a pinch of decamethyl cyclopentasiloxane, and top it off with titanium dioxide, and that’s about all there is to it. • You can make your own sortof silly putty at home by mixing two

tablespoons of Borax and adding it to one cup of water, mixing well. Seperately add half a cup of water to half a cup of white glue. Next add half a cup of your Borax solution to the glue and water mixture. Mix well and store in a plastic bag. • It’s flammable and burns slowly with a bright white light. Microwaved for a few minutes, it becomes excessively sticky but reverts to its original form when it cools. It smells horrible when baked.

FAMOUS WOMEN OF THE WORLD: QUEEN VICTORIA Queen Victoria holds the title of the longest reigning monarch in the United Kingdom. She ruled from 1837-1901; for 63 years and 7 months. The current queen, Queen Elizabeth II, has been in power for almost 61 years. • Born on May 24, 1819, at Kensington Palace in London, Victoria was the only child of Prince Edward (Duke of Kent) and Princess Victoria Mary Louisa of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld. Christened “Alexandrina Victoria” and called “Drina” by her family, the future queen’s formal name from birth was Her Royal Highness Princess Victoria of Kent. • Queen Victoria’s father died when she was only eight months old. Her mother was very protective and she was taught at home. Her first language was German but she was taught to speak French and English when she was only three years old. (Later in life she also learned to speak Hindustani since she became ruler of India.) She studied history, geography and the Bible and was taught to play the piano and to paint. • Victoria was the granddaughter of George III and inherited the throne from her uncle William IV. Her father was one of four sons of George III but since none of his brothers had legitimate children in line for the throne, she became William IV’s successor. Victoria was elevated to the throne at the young age of 18, with her coronation held a year later on June 28, 1838. • When Queen Victoria was 21 years old she married German Prince Albert, who was her cousin. In her first years as queen her main advisers were her Prime Minister Lord Melbourne and her uncle, King Leopold of Belgium. • After marrying Prince Albert, he became her major confidant and advisor. He helped her learn to rule in the constitutional role where the monarchy had much influence but the powers were mostly with Parliament. • The British Empire became very powerful during Queen Victoria’s reign. She ruled about one quarter of the world’s landmass and approximately one quarter of the world’s population;

about 450 million people. The land under British rule was so large that many said “the sun never set on the British Empire.” It stretched around the globe from Canada to the Caribbean, Australia, New Zealand, Africa and India. India was considered the “Jewel in the Crown” and Queen Victoria was given the title of Empress of India in 1876. • Queen Victoria’s long reign became known as the Victorian era: a time of great industrial, scientific, political, military, and trade advancement for Great Britain. • The Queen and Prince Albert had 9 children and 42 grandchildren. The queen was called “Grandmother of Europe,” by managing the marriages of her children and grandchildren into other European royal families. • When Prince Albert died in 1861, Queen Victoria mourned, rarely seen in public, for about ten years. Known as the “Widow of Windsor,” she wore black for the remaining 40 years of her reign. She

was the last monarch of the House of Hanover. • Her son, Albert Edward, became King Edward VII at her death in 1901. King Edward was the first monarch of the House of Windsor, which is still in power today. Queen Elizabeth II and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, are both great-great-grandchildren of Queen Victoria.

Headaches are debilitating at best. You can't concentrate, irritability sets in, and often they become an accepted way of life. Pain relievers are sold by the billions as the treatment for headaches. These usually do little to treat the actual cause, but rather, attempt to reduce the symptoms. The "pill to next headache loop" is truly something much of society is caught up in. There are many causes of headaches; injury, sinus trouble, spinal curvature, allergies just to name a few. Do you ever wake up with a headache? This type is often the result of improper posture while sleeping, or a chronic neck problem. Positioning your neck and head while you are sleeping is very important. The wrong position or pillow can injure muscles, bones, and nerves and can be the source of the wake-up headache. We are living in constantly changing and stressful times, and stress is one of the major causes of headaches. Whether physical or emotional, stress produces muscle tension that puts pressure on nerves, thus, and not surprising, headache pain. Finding lasting relief will not be found in the pain relief section of the drugstore. Persistant and re-occuring headache pain should be investigated to determine the source. You do not have to live with the pain and constant trips to the medicine cabinet. Call us today to find out what you can do to find relief. Dr. Patrick Lambert. 1-888-287-6328

Officially opened January 04 of 2010, the Burj Dubai is the tallest building made by the humans hand at 1053 ft. Boasting the world's first Armani hotel on the bottom floors, the Burj Dubai Tower also houses 900 Dubai residences, 37 floors of office space, a fine dining restaurant and an observation deck on the 124th floor. The Burj is far taller than the previous record, the Taipei 101 Tower, in Taiwan with 509m. The building can be viewed from 95km away, is covered with 26,000 glass panels and the estimate cost for the Burj Khalifa was about US$1.5 billion. Unfurnished. Sure, the Burj Dubai tower looks amazingly tall, but it's final heightâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; currently projected to be 2,300 feetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; is less than half that of a new building planned for Saudi Arabia. It's going to be 5,250 feet high. Yup, that's just 30 feet short of a mile tall: taller than anything under construction anywhere, and making it easily the world's tallest building. Think they should stick a TV antenna on the top and go for that extra 30 feet? I sure do. It's going to be built in a new city near Jeddah on the Red Sea and is funded by billionaire Prince al-Walid bin Talal. He bought London's Savoy hotel for a cool $2.5 billion in 2005. So you can suspect that there'll be a hotel in the building somewhere. By my calculations, the tower will have somewhere between 320 and 350 floors, so perhaps that should be "several hotels".

● During the original run of the classic 1960s TV series “Gilligan’s Island,” some viewers took the show rather too seriously. Several telegrams were sent to the U.S. Coast Guard asking why the poor people hadn’t yet been rescued. ****************** Thought for the Day: “I want a man who is kind and understanding. Is that too much to ask of a millionaire?” -Zsa Zsa Gabor (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

● If you’re traveling to Kansas anytime soon, be sure to remember that it is against the law in that state to catch fish with your bare hands.

● In 2010, a new species of slug was discovered in the mountains of Borneo. It is distinguished from other species of slug by its novel method of mating: It shoots its mate with a so-called love dart made of calcium carbonate and containing hormones. The researchers nicknamed the gastropods “ninja slugs.”

● You might be surprised to learn that Humphrey Bogart wasn’t the producers’ first choice for the role of Rick in “Casablanca.” An actor named George Raft was originally offered the part, but he turned it down because he didn’t like the script.

● The famed statue Venus de Milo was lost to history for nearly 2,000 years. No one knew of its existence until 1820, when a Greek peasant tilling a field on the island of Milos hit stone -- several carved blocks of stone, to be specific. Within a few weeks, archaeologists arrived and took the statue of Aphrodite to France. King Louis XVIII dubbed it the Venus de Milo and donated it to the Louvre, where it remains today.

● It was Martin Luther King Jr. who made the following sage observation: “Shallow understanding from people of good will is more frustrating than absolute misunderstanding from people of ill will.”

● Those who study such things say that the average lightning bolt has a temperature of approximately 50,000 degrees Fahrenheit. For comparison, the sun’s average temperature is only 10,000 F.

● According to most history books, the first shots of the Civil War were fired at Fort Sumter, S.C., in April of 1861, but that’s not entirely true. The first shots of the war between the North and the South actually were fired in January of that year in Pensacola, Fla., where a garrison of Union troops was stationed at Fort Barrancus. A contingent of Florida and Alabama troops marched on the fort with the intent to throw out the Yankees in their midst. However, the Southerners’ dedication to the cause was somewhat lacking; as soon as the Union soldiers fired at them, they beat a hasty retreat.

● It was humorist Jerome K. Jerome who made the following sage observation: “It is impossible to enjoy idling thoroughly unless one has plenty of work to do. There is no fun in doing nothing when you have nothing to do. Wasting time is merely an occupation then, and a most exhausting one. Idleness, like kisses, to be sweet must be stolen.”

• When Roosevelt and Churchill were scheduled to meet in 1943, they knew the Germans were desperate to find out where the meeting would be. News was leaked that it would be at the place identified in code as Casablanca. The Germans figured that since "casablanca" was Spanish for white house, the meeting would take place at the White House. They sent all their spies to monitor the White House while Roosevelt and Churchill had an uneventful meeting in Casablanca, Morocco. • On December 6, 1941, President Roosevelt sent a message to Emperor Hirohito in Japan pleading for peace. He sent the message by telegraph in a simple code used for every-day transmissions. In Japan, the telegram sat for ten hours unread due to a backlog of messages. Had he sent the message in a top security code, it would have reached the Emperor immediately. But it did not— and the next day, Pearl Harbor was attacked. • Actress Lucille Ball reported that every time she walked near a certain area, she heard Japanese radio broadcasts coming across some lead fillings in her teeth. An investigation revealed a Japanese radio station hidden underground.
