A TRIP TO THE ZOO

(from page one)

the honor of being the first place to host the birth of an African elephant in captivity. • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania was the site of America’s very first attempt at establishing a zoo, when they created a charter for one in 1859. However, construction was halted due to the uprising of the Civil War. Meanwhile, New York City opened Central Park Zoo in 1864, thus taking the honor of establishing the first public zoo in the U.S. • Although the word “hippopotamus” translates from the Greek for “river horse,” this herbivorous mammal is more closely related to the pig. It ranks third in size in land animals, right behind the elephant and rhinoceros. Baby hippos are born underwater and weigh about 100 lbs. at birth. By adulthood, one might weigh as much as 5,800 lbs. Hippos eat about 88 lbs. of food daily. At one time, hippos’ ivory canine teeth, which reach 20 inches in length, were used by dentists for artificial dentures because they are durable and don’t turn yellow. In a zoo environment, a hippo will live about 50 years.

LINCOLN MEMORIAL (from page 2) words of Lincoln’s most famous speeches, his second inaugural address and the Gettysburg Address. By Samantha Weaver

● It was inventor Thomas Edison who made the following sage observation: “We don’t know a millionth of 1 percent about anything.” ● Those who study such things say that chewing gum will reduce your recall ability by 10 percent. ● As ostrich can run just as fast as a racehorse. ● In 1972, an extraordinary birth occurred. On July 22 of that year, a woman in Rome gave birth a whopping 15 babies -- five boys and 10 girls. The siblings were quindecaplets, though, obviously, that term doesn’t see much use. ● You probably know that J. Edgar Hoover was the first director of the FBI, helping to found the bureau in 1935 and serving until his death in 1972. You might not realize, though, that in his career he never made an arrest or even personally conducted an investigation. ● It’s been reported that the last words of famed composer Ludwig van Beethoven were “Friends, applaud; the comedy is over.” ● The Rubik’s Cube, that ubiquitous 1980s toy, was invented by a mathematician in Hungary to help teach math to his students. The device was first marketed as a toy in Hungary -- where one in five citizens owned one -- then was brought to the U.S., from whence it became an international sensation. The success of his cube made Erno Rubik the first self-made millionaire in a communist country. ● The next time you’re visiting Washington, D.C., keep in mind that in our nation’s capital, it is illegal to throw a bull in any way. ● A queen honeybee can live for up to seven years. ● On a per capita basis, Switzerland consumes more chocolate than any other country. No. 2 and No. 3 are Norway and Great Britain, respectively. *** Thought for the Day: “Don’t let your opinions sway your judgment.” -- Samuel Goldwyn

• Above these inscriptions are 60 x 12-foot murals, painted with special mixtures of paint, kerosene, and wax, formulated to protect the scenes from the elements. The paintings feature principles followed by Lincoln throughout his life, including freedom, liberty, justice, unity, fraternity, charity, and the law.

• If the giant Lincoln were able to stand up, he would be 28 feet tall. Above Lincoln’s likeness is an inscribed epitaph, “In this temple, as in the hearts of the people for whom he saved the Union, the memory of Abraham Lincoln is enshrined forever.” • Adding to the height of Lincoln’s statue is a thick pedestal of Tennessee marble, and another marble platform beneath, which combined increases the height by another 10.5 feet. • When the monument was dedicated on Memorial Day, 1922, by President Warren Harding, Lincoln’s only remaining son, Robert Todd Lincoln, age 79, was in attendance. • From 1959 to 2008, the Lincoln Memorial was shown on the reverse of the U.S. one cent coin, which bears Lincoln’s portrait bust

• Dentists have been using Novacaine as a local anesthetic since 1905. Procaine hydrochloride is its chemical name, while Novacaine is the trademark name. You can expect its effects to kick in within two to five minutes, with an average duration of one to one-and-a-half hours. It’s the oldest man-made anesthetic. Prior to its invention, dentists actually used cocaine as anesthetic! When cocaine’s addictive nature was discovered, scientists went to work on an alternative. • If you’ve just been called a noddy, consider yourself insulted.

and a death year. -- Wayne M., via e-mail

A: Eric Dane, who played the medical dra-

ma’s Dr. Mark “McSteamy” Sloan since the show’s second season, is alive and well, unlike his character. He currently is in preproduction on the feature film “Sweet Spot,” which also stars Salma Hayek and Kurt Russell. The film is about a former New York Yankees pitcher past his prime who tries to revive his career in the Mexican Baseball League, and will be released in 2013. ***

Q: I watched the season premiere of

“Grey’s Anatomy” and saw that Mark Sloan died. Did the person who played him die in real life? I noticed at the end they gave a birth year

A:

The British thespian, 53, first entered my radar when he played Bond bad guy Alec Trevelyan in 1995’s “GoldenEye.” He’s done tons of stuff before and since, but nowadays he is best known as the doomed Eddard Stark. Last season, he costarred with Ashley Judd in “Missing,” and in 2010 he played Zeus in “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief,” and will reprise that role in next year’s “Sea of Monsters.” From 2008-2010, Sean played the title character in “Crusoe,” he tried to foil Nicolas Cage’s treasure hunt in 2004’s “National Treasure,” and he played Boromir in “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy. The list goes on and on. ***

If you’re familiar with Shonda Rimes’ other shows (“Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice”), you know you’re in for drama, for sure. I spoke with series star Bellamy Young (who plays first lady Mellie Grant), and she gave me a little tease of what to expect this year. “We’ll have government agents gone rogue, college students gone missing and sex scandals. Olivia will get more complicated this season, which is fun to watch because Kerry (Washington) does it so well. And it’s just so human. Mellie will get up to no good at all. But Shonda plays Bellamy Young it very close to the vest with the story line. Getting the script for the next episode is a big deal. And we’re all texting each other: ‘What page are you on?’ And it’s all so shocking! We all just can’t wait to see what’s next.” ***

gus, these are recommendations you should consider to be legitimate. It’s possible that many others happen to agree with “mom.” I find myself visiting Yelp.com for feedback (especially on restaurants), and particularly when I travel. I will avoid any dining establishments with enough bad reviews to raise a warning flag.

BOGUS REVIEWS: Just because there are lots of reviews for the items you are researching, that doesn’t necessarily mean that all of them are viable. Read them carefully. Immediately discount any reviews that start out, “I didn’t actually read this book,” or, “I haven’t really eaten here, but I’ve heard ...” You want to consider only solid, honest and reliable reviews. You’ll learn quickly how to spot them.

Claims Backlogs, VRAP and PTSD

The Veterans Benefits Administration processed more than 1 million claims in fiscal year 2012, per a news release on the Department of Veterans Affairs site. This is the third year in a row it has reached that goal. During one recent month, the VBA processed 107,462 claims with 86 percent accuracy, beating a record it set in 2010. The ultimate goal is to eliminate the claims backlog by 2015, and with 98 percent accuracy. It’s being helped by the new paperless system, which all 56 regional offices will have by the end of 2013. In another press release, applications have been approved for all 45,000 openings in the Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) for 2012, with benefits to start Oct. 1. That means a lot of veterans are going to have an opportunity to get job training and education. Nearly 60,000 applications were received, so some missed out on that group. ASSESSING THE NEGATIVE.

Personality Is Everything When it comes to a modeling career, looks are everything. When it comes to a dog, personality is everything. Getting a dog is like getting married. You don’t date a dog -- get together once or twice a week for a few months until you decide to take it to the next level. You don’t break up with a dog, telling him it’s not him, it’s you. A dog is -- hopefully -- the only relationship where you invite your special friend back to your place on the first date, and he or she never leaves. In light of the uniqueness of the relationship, it’s a good idea to know what you’re looking for and how to find it. But we’re talking about dogs, right? How do you know what a dog’s personality is like before you even bring him home? Believe it or not, it’s possible. There are five simple tests virtually anyone can administer to get a pretty good feel for a dog’s personality. These tests measure a dog’s reaction to the following: --your presence --your voice --the movement of your hand near his head and face --the sound of foreign objects (e.g., car keys tossed to the ground) --your touch (via the application of varying degrees of pressure to different parts of the body, including and especially sensitive parts of the body such as the paws, tail, back and hips, to determine pain tolerance.) These are simple tests, but they reveal a lot. A dog who reacts to your presence by jumping all over you is a very different dog from the one who saunters up to you in his own good time. A dog who shies away or ducks as your hand approaches his face requires a different approach from a dog who views the presence of your hand as a game. A dog with a low tolerance for pain warrants more careful and sensitive play and handling than a dog with very high pain tolerance. None of these reactions is wrong or right, but they are telling. Your job is to know the reaction CASEY’S CORNER: Turn to page 10

Flu Shot Recommended for Just About Everyone As fall continues, I hope that everyone will remember the importance of receiving the influenza vaccination. These days, it could not be easier since the vaccine is now routinely given at your neighborhood pharmacy. Who knows whether this flu season will be mild or severe? There is always the possibility that a rapid outbreak of an unusual strain of the influenza virus can lead to millions of cases of infection, a great deal of suffering and many deaths. This year, there appears to be an outbreak of influenza that can rapidly spread from pigs to man. Since July, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reports a rather large number of infections with an influenza A virus (H3N2) that predominantly affects pigs but can readily spread to people. For this reason, the CDC urges that anyone planning to attend a state or county fair be vaccinated as soon as possible. To date, most infections have occurred in young children with little immunity against the influenza virus. However, serious disease may occur in anyone at high risk, including young children, pregnant women, anyone with a reduced ability to fight infections, people with heart disease or diabetes and people over the age of 65. A vaccination is required annually, as each year the influenza viruses included in the vaccination change. Ad Proof: Every February, a committee of the World Bram’s Health Organization determines which of the nu1/12th page, B&W, 26xare rate ($89.00/wk) merous strains of the virus likely to cause the most the flu is predominantly Oct.infections. 21, 2012 As • Volume 8: Issue #43 an illness that occurs during the winter, epidemiologists track which viruses are causing the most havoc in Corrections due by: 5 As pm, Mon. 10/15/12 the Southern Hemisphere. winter approaches the viruses march northward. They can always lead to serious illness, particularly in those who have not been vaccinated. Currently each vaccine provides protection against three strains of virus (trivalent vaccine), but soon, a new vaccine that protects against four different strains should become available. So should we all be vaccinated? The CDC

recommends that everyone 6 months and older receive yearly vaccinations. If supplies are limited, it is critical that the vaccine be given to those at the highest risk, including children age 6 months to 4 years, pregnant women, anyone over age 50, and those with severe lung disease, a suppressed immune system, morbid obesity or diabetes. Anyone under the age of 18 taking aspirin must be vaccinated, as they are more prone to develop a serious complication from influenza called Reye’s syndrome. Every nursing home patient should be vaccinated, as should all healthcare providers, caregivers or workers who come in frequent contact with young children or older people. For the very old and those with the greatest difficulty fighting infections, a high-dose flu shot should be considered. Called Fluzone HD, this vaccine contains four times as much antigen (a protein in the virus that stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies). Research has shown that the high-dose vaccine is as safe as the regular kind, and leads to a much more robust immune response in those over the age of 65. The experience with this vaccine is still insufficient to determine if the higher dose provides a greater protection against developing a severe infection. The CDC emphasizes that the high-dose vaccine should not be used in anyone under the age of 65. Some elect to receive the influenza vaccination as a nasal spray. This form should not be used in children between the age of 6 and 23 months or in adults over the age of 50. A doctor’s prescription is not needed for a flu shot. Whether receiving the vaccination from a pharmacist or another health care provider, ask whether other vaccines should be given. The evidence is compelling that vaccination is the most critical way to prevent serious complications from influenza. Remember that if you are young and healthy and become infected, not only will your symptoms be significant, but spreading the virus to everyone around you may lead to a life-threatening infection in someone much more susceptible than you.

ANSWER: Liposuction removes fat from fat deposits beneath the skin. It doesn’t remove deep deposits of fat, the fat that surrounds organs in the abdomen, the fat that creates most metabolic troubles.

(And yes ... that’s why they call it “ape.”) Twitter can, however, bring the average fan closer to the player in ways never before accessible. Maybe you’re online when you get the chance to spar with one of your favorite players, like I did the other night from my personal twitter account with noted game-show host Chuck Woolery. After Bob Barker, Monty Hall, Richard Dawson and Alex Trebeck, Woolery is one of the top 10 game-show hosts in history. He’s a real player. Here’s how our game went down: @chuckwoolery: “I’m amazed with the stark difference between right and left. One group asking for prayer for someone the other side is slinging insults.” My reply: “Right, Chuck. You keep praying and pretending that posts like this aren’t veiled attempts at insults.” Chuck: “You have not seen me call names or use toilet humor to tear someone down.” Retort: “No ... but I’ve seen you play plenty of games.” That was enough fun for me to want to get into the game. Shoot me a message or shoot me down, but please do follow this column on Twitter and keep advancing the discussion. Follow me and I’ll follow you ... @sportingview. I’m game. Mark Vasto is a veteran sportswriter who lives in Kansas City.

A TRIP TO THE ZOO (from page page 3) however. In their natural habitat, they prefer seal pups, and their acute sense of smell can detect a seal on the ice up to 20 miles away. The bears frequently eat only the seal’s fat just below the skin, ignoring the rest of the carcass, making for an extremely fatty diet. Yet it doesn’t seem to slow them down! A polar bear can sprint along at a speed of 25 mph for short distances, as well as easily jump a 6-ft.-high snowdrift. • The koala bear isn’t a bear at all, but is actually a member of the marsupial family, joining the kangaroo, wallaby, and opossum. The koala’s diet consists of nothing but eucalyptus leaves, about a pound and a half per day. In fact, the koala would be extinct without the eucalyptus. Sounds like a pretty boring feed, but consider that there are about 600 kinds of eucalyptus trees and to the koala, each one tastes different. If you think your teenager is lazy, consider that the koala sleeps an average of 22 hours per day! There have been koalas at the famous San Diego Zoo since 1925 when the children of Sydney, Australia gifted the zoo with Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. ■

WARNING: Reading Tidbits is habit forming

Many golf instructors teach that one grip works for all your shots, but tour players change their grip with the type of shot they are playing. Your hands are the only part of your body in direct contact with the club. How the hands are positioned in the grip in relation to the clubface directly affects how the ball spins through the air. Let’s start with what I call a “square” grip, with Spin the Ball Away from Trouble by Changing Your Grip the thumbs square to the grooves on the clubface It is a common rule of some golf instructors to have one grip for all your shots. Well, it is a common practice by tour at the 12:00 position, as in players to change their grip according to the type of shot they are playing. the photo.

PHOBIAS (continued): • Some phobias relate to what’s up above, such as the sun (heliophobia), the clouds (nephophobia), the moon (selenophobia), and the stars (siderophobia). Some folks are just afraid of looking up – they are called anablephobes. • Not all phobias seem that abnormal or uncommon. Lots of people might have a fear of death, known as necrophobia. But those with an extreme form might be terrified of being buried alive. A nosocomephobe has a fear of hospitals, a verminophobe is afraid of germs, and a hydrophobe has an irrational fear of water. • Individuals suffering from extreme agoraphobia rarely leave their homes, due to their fear of public or open spaces and the inescapable situations that may occur there. Only home is safe. • Some phobias can be a learned behavior that comes from listening to others describe a traumatic event. An individual in one’s life can trigger a phobia, such as peladophobia, the fear of bald people. Those with nosto-phobia, a fear of returning home, may be able to contribute their panic to a specific incident. • People who are afraid of looking into mirrors have cataptrophobia, while those with cyberphobia have a fear of working with computers. A person with an anxiety about memories is a mnemophobe. • Don’t confuse levophobia, the fear of objects to a person’s left, with dextrophobia, the fear of objects to the right. • Although some of us fear the possibility of cancer, an extreme carcinophobe will convince himself he has cancer because he touched someone who has it.
