More on Those Fake Gold Coins

Fri, 7/17/2015 5:00 AM
John Cinatl in Port Hueneme, California, writes:

I’m writing about the gold coin puzzle. Was it intended to be a joke? (June 14, 2015)  If you remove one or more coins from the bags, why do you need to weigh them to determine which bag contains the fakes? You could simply look at the coins.
 
Marilyn responds:

The term “fake gold coin” means that one cannot distinguish it from a real gold coin by looking at it. They appear identical. Otherwise, the puzzle could just as well have stated that the third sack contained rocks. But in that case, no puzzle would exist. You could just look inside the bags.

Nod off with Noodles

Fri, 7/17/2015 5:00 AM

If you think of ramen as a cheap brick of dried noodles, you haven’t enjoyed a soul-satisfying bowl of one of the hottest food trends around. These days, you can find ramen at Japanese-style noodle bars and even chain restaurants, and it’s a popular late-night snack. Making ramen at home is relatively simple, and it just might help you sleep. The miso and egg are excellent sources of tryptophan (the snooze-inducing ingredient in turkey), and the complex carbs in the noodles help your brain convert tryptophan to the hormones serotonin and melatonin, which help regulate sleep.

What will William Hurt Be on Next?

Fri, 7/17/2015 5:00 AM

The talented William Hurt is one of my favorite actors. What’s next for him?

—Holly H., Lincoln, Neb.

A: The Academy Award winner is back on TV in an eight-part miniseries, Humans, airing Sunday nights on AMC. It takes place in a parallel universe where science has already created Synths (robots), who look human and
function—mostly—as such. Hurt, 65, has given some thought to the idea: “It’s nice to have somebody help you do the dishes, although it would be much nicer to have a talk with somebody who understands your fears and sorrows.”

National Treasure: Who Helped Create the Classic S’more?

Fri, 7/17/2015 5:00 AM

A big thanks to the Girl Scouts, who first placed Hershey milk chocolate (produced by candy manufacturer Milton Hershey in Lancaster, Pa., in 1900) on top of a graham cracker (created by Presbyterian minister and health fanatic Sylvester Graham in New Jersey in the 1830s), topping that with a toasted marshmallow, another piece of chocolate and another cracker.

The classic s’more was born.

And even though today you can get s’mores cheesecake, s’mores Frappucinos and s’mores martinis (made, yes, with marshmallow vodka)—nothing tastes as good as that early-1900s original.

What Disney Movie Inspired Frozen’s Josh Gad?

Fri, 7/17/2015 5:00 AM

In Pixels, opening on July 24, the world is under attack by aliens who misinterpret classic arcade games (think Pac-Man, Donkey Kong, Space Invaders and Centipede) as a declaration of war. So it’s super-gamer Ludlow Lamonsoff, played by Josh Gad, 34 (the voice of Olaf in Frozen), to the rescue! He joins Adam Sandler, Kevin James and Peter Dinklage to save the world in this live action/computer-generated adventure.

How would you describe Ludlow?

There were four guys who were all big ‘arcaders’ growing up, and Ludlow was the young prodigy. Now he’s a conspiracy theorist, who is actually proven correct.

Did Pixels have games for you to play between takes?

There was an amazing set that was stacked with arcade games. It was absolutely the coolest thing ever to go back to my childhood and play all the games that I grew up playing.

So what do you think: Is there life out there?

I believe we’d be pretty selfish and naïve to imagine that we’re the only ones in this gigantic universe.

At one point, you almost quit the business. Now you’re the star of The Comedians with Billy Crystal on FX, and you were an audience favorite in Disney’s Frozen.

I’m the luckiest guy I know. I sat in the theater as a child watching this animated Disney movie, Aladdin, where the genie rocked my world. I thought, “Man, I want to do that one day.” And I remember very vividly watching Comic Relief and seeing Billy Crystal, and now I’m doing that.

Airplane! Turns 35 – Surely You Can’t Be Serious…

Thu, 7/16/2015 4:06 PM

I am serious, and don’t call me Shirley!

That’s just one of many great lines from the 1980 movie Airplane! which spoofed a few disaster films of the 1970s. What a great cast: Robert Hayes, Julie Hagerty (in her feature film debut), Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Peter Graves, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (to name just a few of the main actors).

But, do you know the story behind the movie?

Airplane! was based on a 1957 movie called Zero Hour. Filmmakers Jim Abrahams and brothers David and Jerry Zucker used to videotape late-night movies. One night they taped Zero Hour, and an idea was born. They originally wanted to develop this story to as a “movie within a movie,” in a planned sequel to their feature film Kentucky Fried Movie. Thankfully, they chose to make a full feature instead.

With so much of the dialogue and action in Airplane! directly “borrowed” from Zero Hour, the producers bought the rights to that film.

Zero Hour was a dramatic movie based on a screenplay by Alex Haley (Roots), and this is why he received a writer’s credit for Airplane! (I always thought that was a joke when Haley’s name appears at the beginning of the movie!).

Airplane! also spoofs the ‘70s disaster movie series Airport, specifically Airport 75. In that film, Karen Black played a stewardess that helped fly and land the plane. There was a kidney transplant patient played by Linda Blair. And yes, there was a singing nun, played by singing star Helen Reddy. That last role was played in Airplane! by singer Maureen McGovern, who sang the theme to the TV series Robert Hayes was starring in at the time, Angie.

It wasn’t just dialogue that was borrowed for Airplane! They even named their reluctant pilot after the pilot in Zero Hour, Ted Stryker. Speaking of Stryker, can you imagine anyone else in that role except Robert Hayes? Here are just some of the names that were possible Strykers: Bill Murray, Robert Wuhl, Chevy Chase, Fred Willard, David Letterman, and…Barry Manilow(?).

Movie titles are often changed in other countries. Here are just some of the foreign translations:

“And Where’s the Pilot?” (Argentina)

“Hey, We’re Flying” (Finland)

“Fasten Your Seatbelts, Please” (Czechoslovakia)

“Land As You Can” (Spain)

“The Craziest Plane in the World” (Italy)

“Tighten Your Seatbelts…The Pilot is Gone!” (Brazil)

“Help! We’re Flying!” (Norway)

“The Incredible Trip in a Crazy Airplane” (Germany)

And finally, most airlines were reluctant to play this movie in-flight. However, there was one that did. The ONLY one…Aero Mexico.

Let’s take a look back at some of the great scenes from the movie (there are so many, I could have just put the whole movie here). There’s also a clip that shows comparisons between Airplane! and Zero Hour.

Tackle Your Office in Style

Thu, 7/16/2015 3:41 PM

One of the worst parts of working during the summer is…well, working during the summer. And while some of us toil away at state-of-the-art offices with Arctic blasts of air and chic furniture, others are stuck at home in front of a wheezy air conditioner and a laptop.

There’s a new site called Kontor (still in beta stages), which is sort of like a Pinterest for working folks and allows users to peek into some of the most stylish offices in the world, including LinkedIn and Skype. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, Kontor co-founder and chairman Kevin Ryan (who is also a co-founder of Gilt Groupe), said he was inspired to create the site based on his own experiences starting businesses. In the WSJ article Ryan notes that “a ‘frumpy’ office can turn off candidates who think, I don’t want to work here.”  So, what are some hallmarks of a more attractive office? According to the article, think “colorful, open, lots of glass, nooks and crannies, and fewer offices.”

If you’re not ready for a team of fancy architects and designers, but still want to update your own (home) office on the cheap, try choosing one or two focal points or investment pieces. Focus on paring down your space to make things look more streamlined and up-to-date. And consider replacing lots of space-hogging equipment or forgotten paperwork with streamlined tech toys.

Fujitsu (Fujitsu)

Tame the paper monster: While many people seem obsessed with the new-ish Japanese method of decluttering their homes, personal organizer Penny Catterall, owner and founder of Order Your Life LLC, offers less typical suggestions on taming your home work environment. She says one reason people become buried under clutter in their home offices is because they can be “overwhelmed with commitments and life these days. Life is pulling people in a lot of different directions.” Adding to it is the proliferation of new technology; Catterall says, “Even if people aren’t that tech savvy they have to deal with technology and they don’t know what to do with the stuff coming at them.” One of the things she recommends is taming junk mail before it even gets to your office – keep a recycling bin near your desk or even mailbox.

Catterall is also ruthless about scanning documents to tame the paper monster. The Fujitsu Scan Snap iX500 wireless desktop scanner is definitely an investment piece (retail about $495.00). It has a sleek design and dummy-proof set up, and folds up into its black plastic exterior so it’s as unobtrusive as possible on your desktop. It also comes paired with an incredibly sophisticated software system and built-in wifi. And even if you’re the type of person who fears technology, it’s so easy to work (you can skip the computer and scan straight to your smartphone or even Kindle) and the benefits so overwhelming that it’s worth trying. I’ve been working through an old file cabinet and can’t believe the speed of scanning (50 pages at a time, as compared to my sluggish desktop all-in-one scanner/printer) and its efficient filing system. It’s a really nice way to reclaim some space and rid yourself of old paperwork.

So! If you’re inspired to empty your home office before adding to it, Catterall’s top 3 tips are:

  • Be ruthless about unsubscribing from magazines, catalogues, and junk mail. Take a long look at what’s coming in. There are great apps and websites, such as Paperkarma, to help you with this step.
  • Use the ART system: Action, Reference or Toss – it’s either an action pile, reference file for future use, or needs to be tossed.
  • Instead of saving everything, scan your documents to PDF and keep a recycling bin and a shredder right by your desk.

Sit Smarter: I’ll admit it. I’m a bit of an office chair snob and love it when visiting friends or clients ooh and aah over my bright green Steelcase Amia chair ($569.00 at Staples.com), but according to Brian Shapland, the General Manager at Turnstone – the younger, hipper cousin of the classic Steelcase line – our working habits change along with the evolution of the technology that we use. Turnstone designers started creating more updated products the support our newer postures (iPad hunch, anyone?). While most of these products are intended for use in a more corporate environment, it’s nice to know that informal office decor can be stylish and home-y while still being incredibly professional. Looking to add a retro touch to your office? Check out the Shortcut chair which would blend seamlessly into the offices of Sterling Cooper & Partners.

HP (HP)

Free Up Desk Space: I’m pretty old-school when it comes to my computer and prefer a desktop model with an oversize monitor. I’m also a little bit in love with the teeny tiny HP Pavilion Mini Desktop which is a powerhouse unit that’s actually small enough to fit into the palm of your hand. It’s great for working at home, or for storing all of your videos and family photos. With HDMI compatible ports, you’re able to use it to stream and access content on multiple screens – including TV. At just over $300.00, it’s an easy and fairly painless way to add a little style to your workday.

Television Personality and Former Matchmaker Tamsen Fadal Shares Life Lessons After Divorce

Thu, 7/16/2015 3:05 PM

Emmy Award-winning television journalist, New York City news anchor, and producer Tamsen Fadal, is known for her smart reporting and onscreen style. Fadal has enjoyed a long and successful career in the spotlight, but these days the popular news anchor is the first to acknowledge her own flaws and shortcomings. After living some fairy tale moments and experiencing painful losses, she knows that life and people are far from perfect. When the details of her divorce hit the New York Post’s popular Page Six, Fadal thought she had hit a brick wall until she learned to refocus and nurture herself. Today, the television personality has not only jumped that wall of pain and self-doubt, but she’s sharing self-help tips from the experience in her book The New Single (St. Martin’s Griffin; June 2, 2015). I recently caught up with Fadal to find out more about her enlightening journey.

Your book, The New Single was inspired by the lessons learned from a very high-profile divorce. Most breakups are difficult, but did the fact that you were a television personality and your pain was “front page” news (or Page Six news), force you to confront the pain differently? 

I think what I learned from this divorce is that all of us go through the same type of pain no matter whether it is front page news or extremely private. It is a time that you experience so many emotions including loss, fear, sadness and a sense of failure. For me, it has been one of the most challenging life changes I have ever experienced outside of my mother’s death, but one that I have been able to learn so much from now that I am on the other side.

At what point in your own process of dealing with divorce, did you realize that there was a book that needed to be written?

Writing a book was the last thing I thought I would be doing about my divorce. I was embarrassed and the last thing I thought was that I could have any words of wisdom on how to handle something like this or any type of a relationship. But over time, after finding that I was not searching for a post-divorce dating book—I was searching for a book on how to fall in love with myself, I thought there needs to be something out there for women as we go through the process, not try to find the next relationship. That is what my goal was—a non-traditional book about divorce.

The New Single outlines even the tiny details of getting back on track after a break-up or divorce—including food choices and decorating tips. Did you find that even small lifestyle changes put you in a better place?

Absolutely. The smallest changes have benefitted me the most through this process. A lot of people chuckle when they see a lentil recipe in my book, but those small, soulful changes are what changed me. The New Single isn’t about making a new love connection, it’s about connecting to and nurturing yourself.

Do you think that readers who aren’t going through a breakup could benefit from some of the strategies outlined in your book?

I have heard from so many people who say this book is not about connecting to your next new love—it’s about connecting to your current love—YOU! Yes, this is a book for women who need to like themselves and then really love themselves. I am convinced it can help any woman going through any type of life change—a job loss, a new career, kids leaving for college, a divorce or breakup and even a change in a friendship. It’s about YOU and about making sure you know how to connect to who you really are, not just who you want the world to see.

Ironically, while married, you and your husband ran a matchmaking business. Now that you have experienced divorce and a wonderful new life beyond break-up, would you approach matchmaking differently?

That’s an interesting question that I have not thought about. I think I would approach it with more of an insistence that the people coming to be matched make sure they know who they are rather than just who they are looking to be with. It is certainly the only way to avoid making toxic missteps and repeating patterns that are not healthy for us.

What is the most surprising lesson you learned from divorce?

I learned what really makes me happy. And I learned that I have to avoid twisting myself into a pretzel to make something work. If it is not working—let it go. Don’t try to make something work because you believe it’s what will make you happy. Happiness comes without all that work.

Another Frugal Life Hack: Shredded Paper

Thu, 7/16/2015 2:51 PM

In the past year, we had to move my mother-in-law into an assisted living facility. In the process we inherited many of her possessions, including boxes of tax returns and other documents going back more than 20 years.

Because she has Medicare, her Social Security number is all over the place. That means we’ve been doing a lot of shredding to help keep her identity safe. This is important since a recent Federal Trade Commission report showed that people 50 and over comprise the largest segment of the population to fall victim to identity theft.

Identity safeguards aside, what all this shredding has done is leave us with giant bags of shredded paper. I figured I would put that shredded paper out with my recycling this week. But, no go.

Leah Ingram (Leah Ingram)

I happened to check with my town’s recycling office, and it turns out that they don’t accept shredded paper. Why? Because it gums up the recycling machines.

So where does that leave me? What am I supposed to do with all this shredded paper? Sure, I could throw it out, but there’s got to be some useful ways to reuse shredded paper, some sort of green or frugal life hack.

And there is. Or, there are.

That’s why on the heels of last week’s frugal life hacks article, I’ve pulled together life hacks for shredded paper. So if recycling isn’t an option, you can use shredded paper in the following six ways:

1. Add it to your compost
The perfect compost pile is a mixture of wet and dry ingredients, on its most basic level. So food scraps would be wet and things like shredded paper would be dry. This helps to balance the moisture level and increase decomposition.

2. Replace packing peanuts with it
Do you sell things on eBay? Or ship care packages to your children at college? Next time you put together such a box, replace the packing peanuts (which you likely have to buy from the store) with shredded paper.

3. Cushion fragile items in boxes
We pack away delicate holiday decorations using recycled egg cartons (for ornaments) and shredded paper for padding.

4. Create confetti
Need to celebrate something with confetti? Shredded paper is a great stand in. In fact, at last week’s ticker tape parade in New York City for the U.S. Women’s World Cup Soccer champions, that wasn’t ticker tape falling down—it was shredded paper, a ticker-tape replacement since the stock market stopped using ticker tape.

5. Start a fire
A pile of shredded paper in a wood stove, fire pit or chimenea can be a great base for starting a fire.

6. Line an animal cage or litter pan
When I was a cat owner and was looking to extend the life of kitty litter, I would mix in shredded paper. Keep in mind that certain kinds of paper may not be safe for animals, in their cage or litter box, so ask your vet what kind of paper you should avoid, just to be safe. Which means if you go on a paper-shredding binge, you may have to separate safe paper from the other kinds, if you want to use it with your animals.

One final use for shredded paper that you can’t really do on your own but is worth mentioning—make home insulation from it. Greenfiber, based in Charlotte, North Carolina, has created a line of home insulation that is made from 85 percent recycled paper. It gets its paper supply from contracts with recyclers and also direct from the consumer, through its consumer recycling events.

Rob Lowe on New Roles, Parks & Rec and Standing Up to Cancer

Thu, 7/16/2015 2:44 PM

Rob Lowe, the actor behind iconic television characters like Sam Seaborn on The West Wing and Parks and Recreation‘s Chris Traeger, is expanding his repertoire with a variety of new roles: writer, entrepreneur and activist.

The two-time Screen Actor’s Guild Award winner took some time out of his busy schedule to chat with PARADE about his two new series, his men’s skin care line and his work with Stand Up To Cancer.

Since Parks and Rec ended in February, how have you been keeping busy?

It’s a really good time for me. I’m getting to do very, very different stuff, everything I love. And all of them are coming to a head. In September, I will have two premieres. One on Comedy Central of my very first animated series. It’s me, Elizabeth Banks, Will Forte, Kate Mara called Moonbeam City. It’s right after South Park, which is just an amazing thing for us to get. And my real new comedy called The Grinder is on FOX on Sept. 29. Lots of good stuff.

In The Grinder, you play a TV lawyer who returns from Hollywood and thinks he can run his family’s real-life law firm. Do you think this role will live up to some of your other well-known characters?

I wanted to find something that would be a worthy successor to Parks and Recreation, which was so justifiably beloved. I really feel like this carries that torch in a really good way. And he does. You want to find a character that stands the test of time. Not all of them can or are designed to. Seaborn [The West Wing] was one, Traeger [Parks and Recreation] was one and I looked long and hard to find the next one. I fell in love with The Grinder because it’s a larger than life role.

The Grinder seems to have a similar humor to Parks & Rec. Do you see similarities?

They’re very different. I think Parks and Rec was always at its core, a cult show. And that’s what people loved about it. There was an underdog sense about it. And we relished it. It was in the DNA of the show. The Grinder feels like it could be a little more accessible in a way while still having the quirky rough edges that you love in your more underdog shows.

I gotta give props to FOX for making it. It isn’t like everything else. There are elements of it that are unlike anything you’ve ever seen on television and that scares people. They weren’t scared. We’re getting to see the payoff for it in the reviews that are coming out. If you take chances, when you pull it off, people like it.

Your memoir, Love Life, was released in paperback earlier this year, and you’re launching a men’s skin care line. What can tell us about Profile?

My skin care line, well I actually started the company. I started it from nothing. It took me six years to get to where we are. We launch in Nordstrom’s in the fall and have an amazing partnership with them. You can buy it online now at profile4men.com. It’s for guys who don’t want a hassle, who want to keep it simple, who never really thought about “taking care” of their skin or face, this is their line. I say to guys, “You can’t have it both ways. You can’t do nothing and expect to look your best.” This is what you’ve gotta do.

That seems like a good compromise.

A little bit of effort goes a long way. Believe me, I’ve learned that in my 30-plus years of the best and brightest helping me look my best. I’ve taken what I’ve learned and put it out there for regular guys.

I #StandUp4 my mom. Who do you stand up for? @MasterCard @SU2C #ad http://t.co/8ZRIVT1zSK pic.twitter.com/SrVAk5TnGg

— Rob Lowe (@RobLowe) July 13, 2015

You’re also working with the Stand Up To Cancer campaign. Can you tell me more about that?

I’ve been so fortunate to be a part of Stand Up To Cancer since its inception and [for the fifth year] we have partnered with MasterCard. And any MasterCard user who goes out to eat or orders in and it’s over $10, a portion is going to Stand Up To Cancer. And the hope is we will raise $4 million between now and September 15. In past years, this program has raised almost $26 million. It’s another year of a really effective, great way to put money right in the hands of the researchers who are there on the cutting edge.

It seems like such an effortless way to give back.

It is. Look, we’re all going to go out to eat anyways. Why not do it in a way that does something good for all of us? I encourage everyone to grab a Mastercard and go out to eat — a lot.

Will you be doing this as well?

I enjoy doing this too much already! I need no prompting to go out and eat. I’m a foodie. I love it. I think they may raise a lot of it just from me. Mostly with milkshakes and desserts that I shouldn’t otherwise be having.
