from Bruce



• On 3 August 2003 in Oakland, California, Edie Dodds was driving a minivan that crashed after she felt her shoulder, she said, “pop out of its socket.” The car hit another car and then rolled over, coming to a stop upside-down. Edie said, “The only thing that stopped us from going over the embankment was a parked Volvo.” In the car with her were her nine-year-old son, Keither, and her six-year-old daughter, Eden. Keither smelled smoke and was worried about the minivan catching on fire. Edie was only semi-conscious after the accident, so Keither unbuckled her seat belt and his sister’s seat belt to get them out of the minivan. He said, “I was sort of shocked. I’ve never been in an accident that bad. But all I thought about was helping my mom and my sister and trying to get out of the car.” After getting his sister and his mother out of the minivan, Keither borrowed a cell phone and called his father, Oakland police officer Keith Dodds. Edie said, “The amazing part to me was that this little boy kept his composure throughout the whole thing.” When Keither’s father arrived, he was surprised to see that the minivan was totaled; Keither had been so calm on the phone that his father did not think that the accident had been as serious as it was. Keither, a 4th-grader, is a conflict manager at Joaquin Miller Elementary. He said, “I solve problems as a conflict manager. I break up fights and help, like when my friend scraped his knee.” He also once helped a little girl who was suffering an asthma attack. His father said, “I’m very proud of him. He worked through a serious emergency like that. I know conflict management has helped him.”

• In 2002 in St. Louis, Missouri, Doris Householder fell asleep while driving after working the night shift and crashed her pickup into the concrete base of a traffic sign. She was badly injured, and her pickup caught on fire. Ms. Householder remembers, “When I woke up, I could see four guys yelling to each other, ‘Get away from the truck! It’s going to blow up!' I’m screaming, ‘No! Help! Don’t let me burn alive!’” Coming to the rescue were Mary Whitehead, a homeless woman, and Bob Hughes, a local TV news photographer who arrived after hearing about the accident on a police scanner. Ms. Householder says, “Then I heard, ‘It’s okay, we’re here!’ And I see this black woman out the window.” Ms. Whitehead and Mr. Hughes pulled Ms. Householder from the burning pickup. Mr. Hughes said, “I saw her foot hanging from the bone.” He used a fast-food bag as a tourniquet, and surgeons later successfully reattached her foot. Ms. Householder said, “Bob kept me from bleeding to death. Mary kept me from freaking out to death” until the EMS arrived. Mr. Hughes said about his lifesaving action, “I just hope someone would do that for me or my wife.” Ms. Whitehead had recently bought her daughter a Slushee at a nearby Phillips 66 for her 11th birthday, pointing out, “I had nothing else to give her,” but the community rallied around her after her heroism became known. People donated $17,000 to her, and a nonprofit group found a five-bedroom ranch house for her and her family to live in.

• In June 2007 Dale Newlands took a bicycle ride with his three children beside the River Lednock in Comrie, Perthshire, Scotland. He stopped to mend the bike of Georgia, his six-year-old daughter, while Connor, his 11-year-old son, and Gemma, his nine-year-old daughter, biked ahead. Unfortunately, Gemma’s bike hit some large rocks and she and her bike went down the 20-foot bank and into the river. She was trapped underwater with the bike on top of her. Connor soon realized that Gemma was no longer behind him, and he investigated. When he saw Gemma and her bike in the river, he scrambled down the riverbank and went into the water. He was unable to lift the bike off Gemma, but he held her head out of the water so she could breathe until their father arrived and lifted the bike off her. The children’s mother, Joanne, said, “I couldn’t believe that a simple family cycle ride had turned into such a nightmare. Connor didn’t want any fuss and was keen to play down his part in the whole drama. We’re so proud of him. Connor saved his sister’s life — it’s as simple as that. Gemma thinks he is the best brother in the world. He’s our hero, and we owe him everything.”

Trivia Question of the Day

The groundbreaking video for this song was the first to be aired on MTV Europe when the network launched on 1 August 1987, and features a guest appearance by Sting singing background vocals as well as providing the signature falsetto introduction. That's the way you do it, so what is the title of this song?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

This musical instrument is known as Paixiao in China, Wot in Laos, Kuvytsi in Ukraine, and Siku in Peru. By what name is it known in English?

       Pan Flute (Panpipes)                                                      Source

A pan flute (also known as panpipes or syrinx) is a musical instrument based on the principle of the closed tube, consisting of multiple pipes of gradually increasing length (and occasionally girth). Multiple varieties of pan flutes have been popular as folk instruments. The pipes are typically made from bamboo, giant cane, or local reeds. Other materials include wood, plastic, metal and ivory.

The pan flute is named after Pan, the Greek god of nature and shepherds often depicted with such an instrument.

The pan flute's tubes are stopped at one end, at which the standing wave is reflected giving a note an octave lower than that produced by an open pipe of equal length. In the traditional South American style, pipes are fine-tuned to correct pitch by placing small pebbles or dry corn kernels into the bottom of the pipes. Contemporary makers of curved Romanian-style panpipes use wax (commonly beeswax) to tune new instruments. Special tools are used to place or remove the wax. Corks and rubber stoppers are also used, and are easier to quickly tune pipes.

“The magnificently indefinable Asylum Street Spankers stand as one of America's most distinctive groups. Defiantly acoustic, fiercely independent and absurdly good, one reviewer aptly described them as ‘a roots-rock riddle, nestled in a satirical Vaudeville enigma, packaged in an old-timey radio-show puzzle and slathered with hippie-fried mystery sauce.’”

Yellow Dog Records carries the living lore of authentic American music into the present. Featuring new interpretations of Blues, Jazz, Soul, and Americana styles by established and emerging artists, Yellow Dog Records is where innovation confronts tradition. What's left after the collision? Inspired explorations of America's musical roots.”

Biden's Economic Matthew A. Wrinkler: Performance Has Proved Unbeatable (Bloomberg Opinion)
No first-year president going back to Carter comes close to matching the current White House occupant’s No. 1 or No. 2 ranking in each of 10 key measures. U.S. financial markets are outperforming the world by the biggest margin in the 21st century, and with good reason: America’s economy improved more in Joe Biden's first 12 months than any president during the past 50 years notwithstanding the contrary media narrative contributing to dour public opinion.

The Sideshow - by Avedon Carol


‘Avoid Anything Green’

Betty White

Betty White is celebrating her milestone 100th birthday on Jan. 17 by gracing the cover of People.

In the issue, which hits newsstands the week of Jan. 10, the prolific actor reveals her secret to living a long, fulfilling life.

“I try to avoid anything green,” she joked. “I guess it’s working.”

White isn’t a fan of Hollywood’s health food trends. Instead, “The Golden Girls” star prefers eating hot dogs and drinking vodka with a splash of grapefruit.

She also enjoys eating a peanut butter, bologna and iceberg lettuce sandwich on white bread for lunch. According to her executive personal assistant of nearly a decade, Kiersten Mikelas, White’s mother used to make the snack for her as a child.

Appeals Court Ruling

New York Times

A New York state appeals court on Tuesday put on hold part of a trial judge's decision blocking the New York Times from reporting on documents prepared by a lawyer for the conservative activist group Project Veritas.

Justice William Ford of the Appellate Division in Brooklyn said the Times does not have to turn over or destroy its copies of documents prepared by Project Veritas' in-house lawyer Benjamin Barr while it appeals the coverage ban.

On Friday, in a ruling that alarmed First Amendment advocates, Justice Charles Wood of the state Supreme Court in Westchester County said Barr's memos were not a matter of public concern, and rejected the Times' claim that barring coverage would unconstitutionally restrain its journalism.

The newspaper's editorial board called Wood's decision dangerous and his rationale "breathtaking," saying no court should tell news media how to conduct their reporting and risk subjecting them to frivolous libel lawsuits as a means of controlling news coverage.

Ford directed Project Veritas to address by Jan. 14, 2022, why Wood's decision should not be thrown out, or at least stayed through a possibly expedited Times appeal.

Ass Or Asset?

Madison Cawthorn

Old video resurfaces of Rep. Madison Cawthorn saying he met his soon-to-be ex-wife at a 'fake CrossFit competition' organized by a US Army captain he met in Russia

An 18-month-old video of GOP Rep. Madison Cawthorn explaining the bizarre way he met his soon-to-be ex-wife emerged on Twitter this weekend.

The congressman, who represents North Carolina, recounted how he was on vacation in St. Petersburg, Russia, with several friends. Cawthorn said he embarked on "one last trip" before undergoing back surgery that he feared would prevent him from flying again.

"He just wanted to put me in the same room with the girl who was eventually going to become my fianceé. And so, we did, and her and I hit it off, and it's been a magical relationship ever since," Cawthorn added.

In Alaska — In December

65 Degrees

Ah, another day, another incomprehensible temperature record. This time, the unwanted accolade goes to Alaska, which set a statewide temperature record for December just days before the end of the year, according to the National Weather Service. The Kodiak Tide gauge recorded temperatures for the state hovering at 67 degrees Fahrenheit, a number one would expect in early autumn New York during non-doom times.

More alarming still were the daily temperatures set in particular Alaskan locales. Kodiak Airport, located in Kodiak Station, recorded temperatures of 65 degrees Fahrenheit, 9 degrees higher than the station’s previous all-time high. Kodiak City also shattered its own single-day record by a jaw-dropping 20 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. To put that in perspective, in addition to setting the December record, the 65 degrees seen in Kodiak was the highest on record for the city for any day in November, January, February, or March. Cold Bay, a small town in the Alaska Peninsula, meanwhile beat its own daily record by 18 degrees Fahrenheit.

All of this rising heat has had the secondary effect of dumping torrents of rain across the state. Last month, a storm dropped one of the top-four heaviest two days of rainfall recorded in the state, The Washington Post reports. Worse still, the water melted snow on the ground as roadway surfaces were still at a subzero temperature, which has caused ice to bond to the surface of roads. This, in effect, acts like cement layered on roadways, according to Alaska’s Department of Transportation, which has warned of dangerous driving conditions throughout the state.

Alaska’s records mark a fitting end to what has been an absolutely sweltering year in the U.S. overall. Heat records have been set across seemingly every region, making the U.S. map of heat records resemble a frantic scatterplot. Some of the most dramatic heat waves occurred this summer, which was the hottest on record since the 1936 Dust Bowl.

UK Government Aid

$4 Million

Former President Donald Trump (R-Lock Him Up)'s Scottish golf resorts claimed more than $4 million in UK emergency money as the struggling businesses furloughed hundreds of staff members amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Newly-published company accounts for the two international resorts revealed the Trump Turnberry in Ayrshire and Trump International Scotland near Aberdeenshire cut 273 jobs in 2020, while also claiming $3.7 million in furlough support.

Trump Turnberry recorded a loss of more than $4 million in 2020 while the Aberdeenshire resort reported a loss of $1.7 million. Filings for both resorts cited the government lockdown, which required the businesses to be closed for multiple months in 2020 and into 2021, as reason for significant staff losses.

However, in the accounts filed by Golf Recreation Scotland Ltd. and signed by director Eric Trump, he also cited Brexit as a contributing factor to the resorts' failing finances, according to The Independent.

During his presidential campaigning and into his presidency, Trump was a vocal supporter of Brexit, which saw the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union in 2016. The former president nicknamed himself "Mr. Brexit" in a 2016 tweet and celebrated the Brits, who he said "took back their country" at an appearance in Turnberry in 2016.

"Digitally Unwrapped"

Amenhotep I

For the first time, scientists have used three-dimensional technology to "digitally unwrap" the mummy of an ancient Egyptian pharaoh that had not been opened in 3,000 years. Scientists said the mummy of Amenhotep I was well preserved, allowing them to uncover information about the ruler and his burial in "unprecedented detail."

The researchers used 3D computed tomography (CT) scanning to peer inside the mummy of Amenhotep I, who ruled Egypt from roughly 1525 to 1504 BCE. The ruler's mummy was found fully wrapped in 1881, and according to researchers, is one of the few royal mummies to not be physically unwrapped in modern times.

The scans revealed that Amenhotep was buried with 30 amulets and jewelry pieces, including a beaded metallic girdle. The researchers published their findings in the journal Frontiers in Medicine.

The scientists learned that Amenhotep was roughly 35 years old when he died of unknown causes. The pharaoh was originally thought to have died between the ages of 40 and 50, based on a 1932 X-ray study, and then a 1967 study estimated that he was around the age of 25.

"He was approximately 169 cm [5-and-a-half feet] tall, circumcised, and had good teeth," Saleem said. "Amenhotep I seems to have physically resembled his father: he had a narrow chin, a small narrow nose, curly hair, and mildly protruding upper teeth."

Makes You See Tiny People

Lilliputian Hallucinations

In all its dazzling complexity, the human brain can produce remarkable experiences indeed. For some, that means hallucinations of tiny people, dashing about before their very eyes.

Hallucinations of diminutive humans can be entertaining or terrifying depending on whom you ask, and accounts of these 'microptic' or 'Lilliputian' visions are rather scarce in the scientific literature. In fact, few researchers have tried to figure out what's behind these strange experiences in the first place.

In the early 1900s, French psychiatrist Raoul Leroy took an interest in sightings of human figures comparable to the tiny inhabitants of Lilliput in Jonathan Swift's famous 1726 novel, Gulliver's Travels. To him, it was a mystery of the mind, one begging for a scientific explanation.

The small handful of cases curated by Leroy was remarkably diverse, though in general, he noted the visions were colorfully dressed, highly mobile, and mostly affable. Occasionally, the sightings were of individual figures, though most patients reported them as appearing in groups, interacting with the material world as if they were truly present, climbing chairs, squeezing under doors, and respecting the pull of gravity.

Not all experiences were so benign. In one study, Leroy reported a 50-year-old woman with chronic alcoholism who claimed to have seen two men "as tall as a finger", dressed in blue and smoking a pipe, sitting high up on a telegraph wire. While watching, the patient claimed to have heard a voice threatening to kill her, at which point the vision disappeared, and the patient fled.
