Page12 POST-GAZETTE, JUNE 5, 2015 Ray Barton's 11 O'CLOCK NEW5 Ready for this? A man waiting to board a plane in Charlotte, North Carolina, peeled off all his clothes when he was told that the flight was overbooked. "I have never seen anything like that at an airport," one woman said. "He left nothing for my imagination." Hey, guys, a new University of Texas study found that drinking two cups of coffee a day lowers men's risk for erectile dysfunction by 42 percent. This just in! Hollywood legend Omar Sharff, 83, is suffering from Alzheimer's, his son has revealed. Tarek E1-Sharif said that the actor, famed for his performances in Doctor Zhivago and Lawrence of Arabia, often struggles to remember he was a movie star and gets confused when fans approach him in the streets in Egypt. "He knows who he is, but not necessarily the reason people greet him," said El-Sharif. "He often thinks it's someone he used to know whose name and face he's forgotten." Wow! An Illinois couple welcomed the 100 th child born to their children, grandchildren, and other descendants. Ruth and Leo Zanger have been married for 59 years and have 12 children, 53 grandchildren, 46 great- grandchildren, and now one great-great- grandchild. "We could start our own town," Leo said. Morons! Seven Maryland high school stu- dents were charged with burglary for a pre- dawn break-in at their school in which they released 72,000 ladybugs. Fellow students held a rally to protest the arrests, with one sign reading, "If ladybugs are bad try our school lunch." The Catholic Church "has lost its grip on the Irish," said Paul Vavelly in The Indepen- dent on Sunday (U.K.). A solid 62 percent of voters chose to legalize gay marriage, mak- ing Ireland the first country to do so by na- tional referendum. What a stunning trans- formation from the Ireland of just three de- cades ago, when voters refused to legalize divorce. According to the Washington Post, same- sex marriages are now allowed in 20 coun- tries around the world. But in 66 countries, homosexual acts are still illegal, and in 12 countries -- including !ran, Iraq, and Saudi Arabia -- they are punishable by death. So who is the oldest person in the world? Steven Sebestyen? Albert Natale? Tom Analetto? Well, the truth is, the oldest per- son in the world is Jeralean Talley of Michi- gan, who turned 116 two weeks ago. The two oldest persons ever known to science, Sarah Knauss of Pennsylvania and Jeanne Calment of France, reached 119 and 122, respectively. The trouble with growing old is that there's not much future in it. And you can recog- nize the golden years by all the silver in your hair. Mother Superior Frances Fitzgerald, says, "The best thing about growing old is that it takes such a long time. " Last count, there are 15,000 people in the United States over the age of 100. Weird! A campaign to allow students and teachers to carry guns at public colleges so they can fire back at mass shooters or de- fend themselves against sexual assault, is failing in 14 out of 15 states where bills have been introduced. Only in Texas does the leg- islation have a chance of passing this year. Toot your horn if you heard this before. Driv- ers are doing more than just texting behind the wheel. In a new study by Braun Re- search, 33 percent admitted they regularly send and read emails while driving, while 28 percent said they browse the internet and 27 percent said they use Facebook. Are you getting enough sleep? Well, scien- tists warn that not getting enough sleep heightens the risk for metabolic disorders, including obesity and diabetes. Carlo Scostumato claims many churches are now serving coffee after the sermon. Pre- sumably this is to get the people thoroughly awake before they start to drive home. Bella Culo of Chestnut Hill, says, "There seems to be a catch to al- most every- thing. For instance, it's wonderful to 0 0 0 sleep till noon, but it sure ruins your after- noon nap." Good idea! Chinese scientists have geneti- cally engineered trees that grow up to 10 times faster than natural trees to feed the country's paper industry. Despite sinking global demand for newsprint and book paper, global demand for cardboard and tissues has grown slightly over the past decade. Stay awake! In Florida, a Delta Airlines jetliner carrying 42 passengers to Palm Beach International Airport tried for 39 min- utes to contact the control tower, then had to land without guidance or clearance. In- vestigators discovered the lone air traffic controller on duty was taking a nap, accord- ing to Federal Aviation Administration spokesperson Anne Eldridge, who explained, "This is hardly a good situation." Excellent rulel The Boy Scouts of America has banned water-gun fights, saying that it's not "kind" for scouts to shoot each other with simulated firearms." B/g dea/! Several women were stopped from entering theaters and the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival because they were not wearing high heels. "It's very disappoint- ing," said actress Emily Blunt. "Everyone should wear fiats, to be honest." Huh? Scientists in London found that Viagra may help stop the spread of malaria by making the parasite "stiff making it easier for the spleen to filter the invaders out. Be aware, that Sunday, June 21 st is Father's Day and the first day of summer. Ah, summer! Gals, check your wardrobes especially your bathing suits. Bikinis are still in style! Some guys claim they would like to see the following ladies wearing a bikini. Diane Modica, Barbara D'Amico, Christina Quinlan, Denise Dunbar, Linda Peterson, Fran Ahearn, Donna Zullo Marquardo, Theresa Sebestyen, Rosalie Cunio, Marjorie Cahn, Paula Lombardo-Colia, Jo DeIVento, and all the gals that work at Spinelli's in East Boston. Wow! New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo launched an "aggressive crackdown" on the nail sa- lon industry after a New York Times investi- gation highlighted the abuse and exploita- tion experienced by many of the city's mani- curists - most of whom are Asian and Latin American immigrants. In brief, nail salon workers are often forced to work 10 to 12 hour shifts for little or no pay; are subject to physical abuse by managers, and exposed to toxic nail product fumes that have been linked to miscarriages, cancer, and other illnesses. Cuomo set regulations that will require salons to provide workers with masks, and eye protection. Our distinguished musicologist Albert Natale, reminds us, Jerry Gray, born Jerry Graziano in East Boston, was the composer of "String of Pearls," "Pennsylvania 6-5000," and "Sun Valley Jump." And it was thanks to Jerry Gray's arrangement of "Begin the Beguine" for Artie Shaw that started Shaw on the way. He also did the arranging of "In the Mood," which was Glenn Miller's first big hit. It was Jerry Gray who took over Glenn Miller's service band during World War II. Glenn Miller was reported missing when Jerry Gray took over the band. For his efforts he was awarded a Bronze Star. Jerry did organize his own band styled in the Miller tradition. In the late sixties he reor- ganized a band for an engagement at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, and there found a permanent home. He was still playing there when he died of a heart attack in August 1976. There is a hall named after him in an East Boston community center. AMERICA.
