POST-GAZETTE, JULY 12, 2013 Page 9 Barrorl' 11 0, )C:K Holding it in, after passengers on an her deeply 11-hour flight from San Francisco to London r e 1 i g i o u s found out shortly after takeoff that United mother after Airlines had forgotten to stock the plane with the pop sing- O O O toilet paper. Flight attendants apologized and er gave a handed out tiny cocktail napkins. Well, that wiped away the problem. Citrulo! Justice Samuel Alito, 63, broke the Supreme Court's usual decorum and visibly mocked 80-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg by rolling his eyes, pursing his lips and shaking his head as she read an impas- sioned dissent on a ruling about workplace discrimination. Watch your language! A New York City police officer was reprimanded for speak- ing one sentence of Spanish while on duty. Jessenia Guzman said that when another officer said she was going tO buy coffee, she responded in Spanish. Hours later, the NYPD reprimanded her. "We should be speak- ing in one voice, which is English," said a spokeswoman. The astute East Bostonian, Frank Tino, the noted cabinet maker and guitarist, says, "Never poke fun at someone who misuses and abuses the English language. He may be in training to write tomorrow's hit songs." UnbelievableY More than a third of all women around the world are victims of physi- cal or sexual violence by their partners, the World Health Organization said in its first worldwide survey on the topic. "Violence against women is a global health problem of epidemic proportions," said WHO Director- General Margaret Chan. The domestic vio- - lence rate was highest in Africa, the Middle East and Southeast Asia, where 37 percent of women report being abused and lowest in North America, with 23 percent. More than 600 million women live in countries where wife-beating is not a crime. The WHO urged that health-care workers regularly screen for domestic violence. News from the Vatican. The Vatican is standing by an Italian police officer revered for saving Jews during World War II, despite new evidence that he was actually a Nazi collaborator. Giovanni Palatucci was credited with saving 5,000 Jews as police chief in Flume, a port in what is now Croatia. But researchers at the Centro Primo Levi in New York City say that the town had just 500 Jews, more than 80 percent of whom ended up at Auschwitz -- largely thanks to Palatucci. He was killed in Dachau after the Nazis accused him of embezzlement and his uncle allegedly concocted a tale of heroism to secure his family a pension. Italian authorities embraced that story and named squares and streets after Palatucci. An article in the Vatican newspaper said the revision aimed "to smear a Catholic involved in rescuing Jews." Huh? A party,loving Australian has pleaded with a judge to be sent to jail rather than continue to be banned from drinking alco- hol. Milo Wild, 22, was originally sentenced to three months in jail following a drunken rampage, but a judge suspended the jail term on the condition that Wild refrain from all drinking for two years. Seven months into the alcohol ban, Wild asked Magistrate John O'Neill to let him serve the prison term, say- ing that he found it unbearable to stay at home while his friends caroused at bars. O'Neill called Wild's request "extraordinary," adding "There is nothing to do in Darwin for a strong, healthy young man except to drink?" What a sweet mother! A 52-year-old French mother has been charged with dressing up as her 19-year-old daughter and taking a high school exam in her place. The woman, known only as Caroline D., allegedly wore Converse sneakers, low-rise jeans and lots of makeup to pose as a teenager while tak- ing the test. But a supervisor spotted the disguise and called police. The mom explained that she knew the subject better than her daughter did. Bella Culo of Chestnut Hill claims a mod- em mother is one who can hold a safety pin and a cigarette in her mouth at the same time. Jennifer Lopez was read the riot act by lewd perfor- mance on British TV, said the National Enquirer. Lopez's mother, Guadalupe, is a strict Catholic and "was embarrassed when she saw Jen, dressed like a dominatrix in a skimpy leather outfit and thigh-high boots, shaking her booty for the cameras," said a source. During a fiery confrontation, Guadalupe berated her 43-year-old daughter for acting like an "oversexed teenager." Direct from Italy! "It was a good day for the constitution," said Antonio Padellaro in /l Fatto Quotidiano. A three-judge panel in Milan has found former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi guilty of abuse of office and patronizing an underage prostitute. The court sentenced him to seven years in prison and banned him from holding public office for life. It's only fitting that the former nightclub crooner who became the nation's richest media tycoon has been brought low by his immense sense of entitlement. Over a two- year trial, Italians learned "that this Botoxed, conceited man" held "bunga bunga" sex parties in his villa, "tragicomic theatrics featuring Amazon women" doing stripteases, lap dances and more. Time for a spot of tea. The upcoming birth of Prince William and Kate Middleton's child is expected to generate a $380 million bump for the British economy, including the sale of millions of souvenirs and trinkets and the !OF PJG . 2Y ffitj Ofla E d Sinopoli EYE ROAST OF BEEF 4 pounds eye roast of beef 1 beef bouillon 1 large onion chopped aluminum foil or roasting bag 2 chopped celery sticks salt 3 tablespoons olive, canola, or vegetable oil Heat oil in a skillet. Add chopped onion and celery. Sim- mer until onion is opaque. Remove onion and celery from skillet and place in a bowl. Add eye roast of beef to the skil- let and sear all sides to retain juices in the meat. Cut a wide piece of aluminum foil in which to bake the roast. Place foil in roasting pan. Place seared roast in center of aluminum foil or in a roasting bag. Gently add the oil from skillet. Place chopped onion and celery over the roast. Salt to taste. Cover roasting pan with aluminum foil to fully seal roast and contents (or place in a roasting bag). Bake in 350F preheated oven for 30 minutes. Meanwhile, add a beef bouillon to one cup of water and bring to a boil. Stir and turn off burner. Check roast after 30 minutes. Add a small amount of beef bouillon liquid and baste the roast. Cover and continue baking, basting every 15 minutes. Bake to tenderness of beef desired. (Approx. baking time -- about 90 minutes) NOTE: After baking this roast for my family, I place remain- ing bouillon liquid into a small saucepan over low heat. I stir a tablespoon of flour* into 1/4 cup of water and add to bouillon. Then I add the liquid, onion and celery from the roasting pan. By stirring and allowing all this to simmer slowly, contents will thicken into the gravy that I serve with the roast. *For thick- ening gravy, use approximately one tablespoon of flour to one cup of liquid. My family enjoys home-baked biscuits, mashed potatoes and salad with this meal. opening of an estimated 3 million bottles of sparkling wine. What? The share of children living in ~St ~ poverty in the U.S. rose to 23 percent in 2011, mostly because of their parents' long-term unemployment: accordingto- ffnew :'study. In 2005, only 19 percent of children lived in poverty. Bang! Bang! Americans own nearly 300 million firearms, a new national study found. That translates to nearly nine guns for every 10 people, a per capita ownership rate nearly 50 percent higher than any other country. Some interesting facts about Italians the music scale, do re me, fa, so, la, ti, do, was created by an Italian. The first piano was cre- ated in 1700 by Bartolomeo Cristofori who called it piano e forte. Opera was born in Italy. In 1805, the United States Marine Band was created by President Thomas Jefferson who recruited 14 Italian musicians led by Gaetano Carusi. The man who inspired Jefferson to recruit the Italian musicians was Philip Mazzei, a political activist and writer. It was Mazzei who helped create the Declaration of Independence and originated "that all men are created equal." Our great musicologist, the stately Albert Natale reminds us, Italians gave birth to jazzl It began in the 1880's in New Orleans by Si- cilian immigrants, who came to New Orleans with their musical instruments. Nick LaRocca and his Original Dixieland Band was the first jazz band to cut a record, sell over 1 million records and tour America and Europe. New Orleans was also the home of many talented Italian American musicians such as Wingy Manone, Leon Roppolo and of course, Louis Prima. Louis Prima created Sing, Sing, Sing, which was first performed by Benny Goodman at New York's Carnegie Hall and the band featured a young drummer, Gene Krupa. It was Joe Venuti of Philadel- phia who introduced the violin to the world of jazz. Be aware, East Boston produced many, great Italian American musicians from 1920 to 1960. Of course, one of the most famous of all was Geraldo Graziano ... Jerry Gray. Louis Prima's dynamic drummer was Eastie's Jimmy Faraci known as Jimmy Vincent. Another popular East Bostonian was Pete Chiriani better known as Pete Herman. Pete and his trio used to work at the Hi-Hat Club in Boston where they used to broadcast on WHDH Radio. In the near future we will be listing more names of East Boston's noted musicians. AMERICA IS A BEAUTIFUL ITALIAN NAME Boston Harborside Home Joseph A.
