🥛 The Infamous American Gangster Campaigned For Expiry Dates To Be Clearly Printed On Milk Bottles, Allegedly Due To One Of His Relatives Becoming Ill After Drinking Sour Milk Without Realizing It Had Turned.⁠
another Theory Linked To Capone’s Involvement With Expiry Dates Is Far Less Altruistic. He Controlled All Of The Equipment Capable Of Printing The Use-By Date On Each Bottle And Was Set To Make A Decent, And Honest, Wage Out Of The Entire Enterprise If It Came To Pass.⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
🕵️ The Reason Why Capone Had The Means To Put This Date On Milk Bottles? He Already Had A Rather Impressive Outfit For Bottling Liquids Set Up During The Prohibition Era (1920-1933), When Alcohol Was Banned In The Us, And His Mafia Outfit Filled The Gap In The Market With Its Own Boozey Set-Up. With Prohibition Coming To An End, He Needed Something Else To Keep Those Bottling Plants Busy.⁠

🕷️ Also, Male Peacock Spiders Perform A Colorful Song And Dance Nearly Unrivaled In The Animal Kingdom. But A Study Shows That Their Main Audience—the Females They Aim To Woo—don’t Impress So Easily. ⁠
when A Male Peacock Spider Thinks He Has Spotted A Female, “The World Pretty Much Disappears,” Says Michael Kasumovic Of Australia’s University Of New South Wales, One Of The Study’s Co-Authors. The Spider Then Begins A Series Of Dances—including Moves Scientists Have Dubbed The “Rumble-Rump” And “Grind-Rev”—that Send Literal Good Vibrations Through The Ground Toward The Female.⁠
⁠
once He Has Piqued Her Interest, The Male Unfolds A Brilliantly Colored Abdominal Flap And Then Struts Back And Forth, All The While Frantically Waving Specially Colored, Lengthy Legs.⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
💃 Females Don’t Automatically Swoon To The Males’ Advances, Instead Turning Toward Or Away From Them During Their Initial Vibrations, Based On Interest. Some Females Also Had More Aggressive Responses, Rebuffing Males With Quick Shakes Of Their Abdomens—or Worse. If Females Don’t Like A Male, They’ll Eat Them.⁠
the Females Liked Only 16 Of The 64 Courtship Dances. ⁠
oh And, Males’ Looks Are About Twice As Important As Their Dance Moves, Though Each Plays A Slightly Different Role In Piquing And Retaining A Female’s Interest.⁠

"To the brain, information is its own reward, above and beyond whether it’s useful,” co-author of the study and associate professor Ming Hsu, Ph.D. told Neuroscience News. “And just as our brains like empty calories from junk food, they can overvalue information that makes us feel good but may not be useful—what some may call idle curiosity.”

However, knowledge usually becomes useful when it’s put into context. While many think that learning cool and interesting facts is a waste of time, it’s quite the opposite. Sure, you can find out everything you need with just a few searches and clicks on hyperlinks but it won't do any good to your critical thinking skills.

Scott H. Young, author of Ultralearning: Accelerate Your Career, Master Hard Skills and Outsmart the Competition, wrote that factual knowledge determines the speed you can acquire new knowledge on a topic. "The more you know, the faster you learn." It also is an important driver of our reading comprehension and other high-level skills, for example problem-solving. When you’re reading a book, it’s much easier to understand the deeper meaning if you’re already familiar with the topic.

"You can’t reason critically or creatively without first having amassed a large amount of factual knowledge," Young explained. "This is why the existence of Google and Wikipedia doesn’t reduce the need to learn facts. Something being a Google search away doesn’t mean it’s available in the background to allow you to parse new information easily."

If you find yourself wanting to expand your mental horizons, the Wall Street Journal bestselling author suggested to simply be curious. By reading more articles and books, and by watching a variety of shows or movies, you always surround yourself with new knowledge. If it's hard to understand everything at first, don’t be discouraged and try to look it up.

🗳️ Brown Moved To Massachusetts And, With The Help Of Abolitionists, Went On Tour, Where He Recounted His Daring Escape To Spectators Who Also Thrilled To It As A Miracle Of The Modern Postal Delivery System. (Meanwhile, Abolitionist Frederick Douglass Openly Disapproved Of The Way Brown Divulged His Secrets, Believing It Would Make It Difficult For Another Enslaved Person To Succeed At Such A Plan, And History Appears To Have Judged Him Correct.)⁠
after The Fugitive Slave Act Was Passed In 1850, Brown Moved To Great Britain, Where He Remained For Several Decades Before Moving Back To The United States And Then To Toronto, Where He Died In 1897. ⁠

Young advised not to be afraid of topics that are new to you: "Knowledge is exponential, so if you’re not used to reading something, you’ll learn a bit less. However, as you read more about it, you can read faster and smarter." So picking up a book that might be "above your level" could take longer but will get easier with time. 

Just remember, we are the ones using the newly learned facts and putting them into context. So if you’re wondering whether you’re ever going to use this stuff, one day you actually might. Sometimes, our brains are capable of the most wonderful things, and bringing two completely unrelated ideas into one is certainly one of them.

🌲 Methuselah (Tree) Sprouted Back In 2005, When Agriculture Expert Dr. Elaine Solowey Germinated His Ancient Seed. It Had Been Pulled From The Remains Of Masada, An Ancient Fortification Perched On A Rock Plateau In Southern Israel, And At The Time, No One Could Be Sure That The Plant Would Thrive. But It Has, And Its Recent Reproductive Feat Helps Prove Just How Well It’s Doing.⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
🍃 For A While, The Judean Date Palm Was The Sole Representative Of His Kind: Methuselah’s Variety Was Reportedly Wiped Out Around 500 A.d. But Solowey Has Continued To Grow Date Palms From Ancient Seeds Discovered In The Region, And She Tells National Geographic That She Is “Trying To Figure Out How To Plant An Ancient Date Grove.” Doing So Would Allow Researchers To Better Understand Exactly What Earlier Peoples Of The Region Were Eating And How It Tasted.⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
🌱 At 2,000 Years Old, Methuselah’s Seed Isn’t The Oldest Seed To Be Used To Grow A Plant—not By A Long Shot. Back In 2012, A Team Of Russian Scientists Unearthed A Cache Of Seeds From A Prehistoric Squirrel Burrow That Had Been Covered In Ice. They Eventually Succeeded In Germinating The 32,000-Year-Old Specimens, Which Grew Into An Arctic Plant Closely Resembling The Modern Narrow-Leafed Campion.⁠

🌳 Norway Is The First Country In The World To Commit To No Longer Using Any Products That Contribute To Deforestation.⁠
that’s Pretty Remarkable, Because While During The Last Few Years A Number Of Companies Have Stopped Working With Goods That Can Be Linked To The Destruction Of Rain Forests, Such An Action Has Not Been Matched By Governments.⁠
a Little More Than Five Years Ago, At The United Nations Climate Summit 2014 Held In New York, The Norwegian Government Made A Pledge With Germany And The United Kingdom That It Would “Promote National Commitments That Encourage Deforestation-Free Supply Chains, Including Through Public Procurement Policies To Sustainably Source Commodities Such As Palm Oil, Soy, Beef And Timber.” ⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
🇳🇴 In 2016, The Norwegian Government Made Good On That Promise By Officially Declaring That The Government’s Public Procurement Policy Will Become Deforestation-Free. In Other Words, The Norwegians Will Not Award Any Of Its Government Contracts To Companies That Take Part In Clear-Cutting.⁠
this Isn’t The First Time That Norway Has Put Into Practice “Speaking For The Trees.” The Act Of Banning Deforestation From The Supply Chain Only Continues The Country’s Long-Standing History Of Protecting The World’s Vital Forests.⁠

This is misleading. There is still deforestation here in Norway. What we have done is make supply chains deforestation-free. So e.g. no government contracts are awarded to companies that take part in deforestation. Still, a good measure! 🙂

🐦 Cher Ami (French For “Dear Friend,” In The Masculine) Was A Male Homing Pigeon Who Had Been Donated By Britain To The U.S. Army Signal Corps In France During World War I. He Is Famous For Delivering A Message From An Encircled Battalion Despite Serious Injuries During The Meuse-Argonne Offensive, October 1918.⁠
"Cher Ami" Was Dispatched With A Note, Written On Onion Paper, In A Canister On His Right Leg;⁠
"We Are Along The Road Parallel [sic] To 276.4. Our Own Artillery Is Dropping A Barrage Directly On Us. For Heavens Sake Stop It."⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
🇩🇪 As Cher Ami Tried To Fly Back Home, The Germans Saw Him Rising Out Of The Brush And Opened Fire. After Several Seconds, He Was Shot Down But Managed To Take Flight Again. He Arrived Back At His Loft At Division Headquarters 25 Miles (40 Km) To The Rear In Just 25 Minutes, Helping To Save The Lives Of The 194 Survivors. He Had Been Shot Through The Breast, Blinded In One Eye, And Had A Leg Hanging Only By A Tendon. Cher Ami Became The Hero Of The 77th Infantry Division. Army Medics Worked To Save His Life. When He Recovered Enough To Travel, The Now One-Legged Bird Was Put On A Boat To The United States, With General John J. Pershing Seeing Him Off.⁠

🚭 The Plans Include The Gradual Increase Of The Legal Smoking Age, Which Could Extend To A Ban On The Sale Of Cigarettes And Tobacco Products To Anyone Born After 2004, Making Smoking Effectively Illegal For That Generation.⁠
also Under Consideration Was A Significant Reduction In The Level Of Nicotine Allowed In Tobacco Products, Prohibiting Filters, Setting A Minimum Price For Tobacco, And Restricting The Locations Where Tobacco And Cigarettes Can Be Sold.⁠
“We Need A New Approach,” Associate Health Minister Dr Ayesha Verrall Said, Announcing The Changes. “About 4,500 New Zealanders Die Every Year From Tobacco, And We Need To Make Accelerated Progress To Be Able To Reach That Goal [of Smokefree 2025]. Business-As-Usual Without A Tobacco Control Program Won’t Get Us There.”⁠

⁠
🇳🇿 The Proposals Were Welcomed By A Number Of Public Health Organizations. “This Proposal Goes Beyond Assisting People To Quit,” Cancer Society Chief Executive Lucy Elwood Said In A Statement. She Noted That The Number Of Tobacco Retailers Was Four Times Higher In Low-Income Communities, Where Smoking Rates Were Highest.⁠
“These Glaring Inequities Are Why We Need To Protect Future Generations From The Harms Of Tobacco,” Elwood Said. “Tobacco Is The Most Harmful Consumer Product In History And Needs To Be Phased Out.”⁠
shane Kawenata Bradbrook, A Long- Term Advocate For Smoke-Free Māori Communities, Said:⁠

💰 The Question That Carpenter Seemed To Be Struggling On Was “Which Of These U.S. Presidents Appeared On The Television Series ‘Laugh-In’?” His Choices Were Lyndon B. Johnson, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, And Gerald Ford.⁠
“Um,” Carpenter Said. “I’d Like To Call My Parents Right Now, Use My Lifeline.”⁠
⁠
💸 The Show Called His Father And Philbin Explained The Situation To Carpenter’s Dad. But, When Carpenter Got On The Line, He Didn’t Actually Ask His Dad For Help.⁠
“Hi, Dad,” Carpenter Said. “I Don’t Really Need Your Help. I Just Wanted To Let You Know That I’m Gonna Win The Million Dollars. The U.S. President Who Appeared On ‘Laugh-In’ Was Richard Nixon, That’s My Final Answer.”⁠

🇩🇪 When Fuggerei Was Established By A Wealthy Banker, Jakob Fugger The Rich, In 1520, He Intended For It To Become A Housing Complex Open To The Needy And Poor Living Nearby In Augsburg, Germany. That Tradition Continues Today, With The Only Other Requirements For Living In The Complex Being A Demonstrated Faith In The Catholic Church, And A Proven Residency In Augsburg For At Least Two Years.⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
💸 Jakob The Rich Set Up A Charitable Trust In Order To Bankroll The Fuggerei, A Trust That Still Finances The Village. Although, The Wall Street Journal Notes It Only Sees Returns Of About 0.5% To 2% Each Year. Tourists Also Bring In Some Money For The Village, As Visitors Are Welcome To Tour The Neighborhood For Themselves With The Purchase Of A €4 Euro Ticket, As Long As They Demonstrate Respect For The Town And Its Residents. ⁠
and Although Visitors Are Not Allowed To Enter Any Of The 50- To 700-Square-Foot Residences Currently Occupied, The Fuggerei Maintains A Model Unit So Visitors Can Get A Feel For The Homes That Have Provided Solace For 495 Years.⁠

It had to be a teacher. Who else would be a master in overshouting others?

👀 A Team Of Researchers, LED By Ulrike Willinger At The Medical University Of Vienna, Asked 156 People, Who Had An Average Age Of 33 And Included 76 Women, To Rate Their Comprehension And Enjoyment Of 12 Darkly Humorous Cartoons Taken From 'The Black Book' By The Renowned German Cartoonist Uli Stein.⁠
examples Include A Cartoon Depicting A Morgue Where A Physician Lifts A Cover Sheet Off A Body. A Woman Confirms: “Sure, That’s My Husband – Anyway, Which Washing Powder Did You Use To Get That So White?” Participants Were Also Tested For Verbal And Non-Verbal Iq And Asked About Their Mood, Aggression And Educational Background.⁠
the British Psychological Society Research Digest Blog Reports That The Study Found Three Groups Of Participants. The Group With The Highest Sick Humor Appreciation And Comprehension Scored The Highest In Verbal And Non-Verbal Iq Tests, Were Better Educated, And Scored Lower For Aggression And Bad Mood.⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
🤓 A Second Group Showed Moderate Comprehension Of The Jokes But Enjoyed Them The Least. These Were People With Average Intelligence Scores, But Had The Highest Negative Mood And The Highest Aggression Levels.⁠
the Third Group Showed Moderate Sick Humor Comprehension And Preference, Had Average Intelligence Scores, But Were Generally Of A Positive Mood And Had Moderate Aggression Scores.⁠
the Findings Contradict Earlier Theories About The Relationship Between Aggression And Humor. As Early As 1905, Freud Hypothesized That Humor Allows For A Safe Release Of Usually Repressed Sexual And Aggressive Urges.⁠

🕸️ In The Dvd Commentary Of 'Spider-Man,' John Dykstra – Head Of The Vfx Team For The Film – Shared That There Were No Special Effects Involved In Peter Catching The Food, And It Was All Tobey Maguire’s Work – And It Only Took 156 Takes. Kirsten Dunst Confirmed This And Added That They Used Sticky Glue So Tobey’s Hand Would Stick To The Tray And He Could Catch The Items Without A Problem. Of Course, Things Like The Jell-O And The Sandwiches Were Glued To Their Plates, So All Tobey Had To Do Was Catch Them All, Which Is Obviously Easier Said Than Done. ⁠
⁠
surprisingly, Sony Wanted To Cut The Scene, But Changed Their Mind After Raimi Insisted On Keeping It, As It Required A 16 Hour-Day Of Shooting. In The End, Peter Catching Mj’s Lunch Became One Of The Most Memorable Scenes From 'Spider-Man,' And Will Go Down In Superhero History As A Truly Iconic Move From Tobey Maguire.⁠

😲 The Face Spoke At More Length With Angelina Jolie About The Incident And Why She Felt Compelled To Hire A Hitman To Carry Out Her Death. “They’re Not That Hard To Find In New York,” She Responded. “As Insane As It Sounds, I Think A Lot Of People Consider Suicide When They’re Young,” Jolie Admitted.⁠
“I Was Very Aware That So Many People Around Me, Like My Mother, Would Feel As Though They Didn’t Give Enough Or Do Enough, If I’d Taken My Own Life,” Jolie Continued. “So My Solution To That Was If Someone Else Had Taken My Life – Like In A ‘Robbery’ – Then It Would Be Murder And It Wouldn’t Be That Anyone Would Feel They’d Let Me Down.”⁠
⁠
_____⁠
⁠
🧐 Jolie Even Got As Far As Hiring The Contract Killer And Planned To “Take Out Cash Over A Certain Amount Of Time, So There Wasn’t A Big Chunk In My Bank Account” To The Killer. However, Remarkably, It Wasn’t Jolie Who Had A Change Of Heart, But The Hitman Persuaded Her To Carry On Living.⁠
“He Was A Decent Enough Person And Asked If I Could Think About It And Call Him Again In Two Months,” She Explained. “Something Changed In My Life And I Figured I’d Stick It Out.”⁠
as Bizarre As It Sounds, We’ve Got A Hitman With A Conscience To Thank For Jolie Being Here Today. Her Mental Health Troubles Didn’t End That Day, Jolie Would Suffer A Nervous Breakdown At 24, But Once She Had Her First Child, She Got That Stability In Her Life That She Always Craved.⁠
