Page 12 POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 1,2014 Ray 15arron's 11 O'CLOCK NEW,.'3 Are you ready for this? Georgia police officer William Martinez, 31, had a fatal heart attack in 2009 while he and a male friend were having sex with a woman in a motel room. A jury has now awarded his widow $3 million because doctors should have warned Martinez, who had a heart condi- tion, to avoid strenuous activity. "This man could have died running on a treadmill," said her lawyer. Big shots! Clark and Sharon Winslow of Belvedere, CA, spent $4.2 million to buy the house next door and demolished it. The home was partially obstructing their existing $19 million home's view of San Francisco Bay. A Swedish woman spent eight hours of a plane flight sitting next to a dead body. Lena Pettersson says the Kenya Airways flight from Amsterdam to Tanzania took off even though the passenger next to her was having convulsions; he died two hours into the flight. "Of course it was unpleasant," said Pettersson of having to sit next to the corpse, "but I am not a person who makes a fuss." Upon landing, Pettersson did file a complaint with Kenya Airways, which refunded her $713 about half the cost of her ticket. Scomato! A burglar trying to steal a bicycle in West Seattle was chased down by a mara- thon-running mom. Sarah Tatterson, an accomplished long distance runner, pursued the man after seeing him take her husband's bike from the garage. She yelled at neigh- bors to call the police and gave chase. When the suspect demanded that she "back off," Tatterson said, "My esponse was, I was going to run six miles today, but I could probably do 12." The cops caught the suspect 10 blocks from Tatterson's house. Europe's tallest skyscraper built at a cost of $2.35 billion was created by Renzo Piano, the acclaimed Italian architect. As the world's 59 th tallest building there is plenty to boast about. It features 44 elevators, 306 flights of stairs and 72 occupible floors. Wish to thank the notable Arthur Ray of Lynn for bringing my attention to Renzo Piano's creation. Warning! The sea level is rising three to four times faster than the world average on the East Coast of the U.S., from Cape Hatteras, NC, to Cape Cod, MA, because of melting ice sheets and the fact that warmer water expands. The rise ranges from 2.8 inches in New York City to 4.8 inches in Norfolk, Virginia. What? Men who drink lots of black tea may be increasing their risk of prostate cancer, even though tea improves their health in other ways. Researchers at the University of Glasgow in the U.K. tracked the health habits, tea consumption and medical reports of more than 6,000 men between the ages of 21 and 75 over nearly 40 years. They found that those who drank more than seven cups of black tea per day were 50 percent more likely to develop prostate cancer than those who had three cups or fewer. The finding is surprising because previous research has suggested that drinking tea lowers the risk of cancer, heart disease and diabetes. In fact, drinking black tea may have an overall posi- tive health effect that trumps its correlation with prostate cancer. Enough said. Time for a spot-of-tea! Heady news! It's not just football players who risk lasting brain damage from taking multiple blows to the head. Young female athletes playing sports like soccer and lacrosse may be even more susceptible. Researchers at Michigan State University tested more than 200 high school and col- lege athletes after they endured concus- sions. They found that female athletes had more symptoms than men did -- including headaches, nausea, and dizziness -- and also performed worse than concussed men on memory tests. The findings complement previous research showing that girls suffer twice as many concussions as boys who play the same sport. Researchers aren't sure why. Among girls, soccer players suffer the most concussions, cheerleaders and volleyball players are also at high risk. "What's hap- pening in this country is an epi- O O 'O demic of con- cussions," says Emerson Hospital physician Bob Cantu, who warns that these brain injuries can affect some young people "for the rest of their lives." Cheese is better than butter! Research has found that eating hard cheese is far better for the arteries than creamy butter that has the equivalent number of calories. So have a big piece of Parmigianino or Parmesan cheese! Eating sweets beats the blues! Cake, ice cream and other sweet fatty treats really DO make you feel happy, new research reveals. And Vitamin D3 may increase your eyesight as you grow older, say scientists. Vitamin D could be useful in helping to prevent a range of age-related health prob- lems, from deteriorating vision to heart disease. So says researcher Dr. Glen Jeffrey of Great Britain. Yes! We do take Vitamin D! How to cut an onion without crying! Wear goggles. Wearing airtight eyewear is 100 percent effective in preventing tears. The gas that irritates your eyes is released by a chemical reaction that occurs when the cells of the onion are broken. You can also try slicing an onion while immersed in cold water or chopping it while cold water runs over your hands. Either technique "will send all those tear-jerking chemicals down the drain." Most unusual museums! The Cockroach Hall of Fame Museum in Piano, TX, The Dionne Quintuplets Museum, North Bay, Ontario features their baby bottles. The original Dr. Pepper Soda Fountain is at the Dr. Pepper Museum, Waco, TX. Hair Jewelry Museum, Independence, MO. And right here, in Dedham,' is The Museum of Bad Art. Wonder if one of my paintings is there? Useless Information: The first time the "f-word" was spoken in a movie was by Marianne FaithfuU in the 1968 film l'll Never Forget Whatshisname. In Brian De Palma's 1984 movie Scarface, the word is spoken 206 times -- an average of once every 29 sec- onds. The first female monster to appear on the big screen was the Bride of Franken- stein. The first word spoken by an ape in the movie Planet of the Apes was "Smile." Because metal was scarce, the Academy Awards given out during World War II were made of wood. "Forget Me Not." According to German legend this flower gets its name from the last words of a knight, who was drowned while trying to pick some from the riverside for his lady. "Happy as a clam" is from the expression "happy as a clam at high tide." Clams are harvested when the tide is out. If you yelled for eight years, seven months and six days, you would have pro- duced enough sound energy to heat one cup of coffee. Show biz reminiscing with the stately handsome Albert Natale.

WWW.BOSTONPOSTGAZETTE.COM AMERICA IS A BEAUTIFUL ITALIAN NAME Recipes from the Homeland by Vita Orlando Sinopoli COPYRIGHT, ALL RIGHTS RESERVED CALAMARI 14 ounces crushed tomatoes 1 medium chopped onion 1 large chopped garlic clove (optional) 1/4 cup olive, canola or vegetable oil 1 teaspoon dried basil or two fresh basil leaves (SQUID) IN TOMATO SAUCE Over Linguine 2 pounds already cleaned calamari (squid) 3 tablespoons white or red wine of choice 1 pound of linguine Grated Romano or Parmesan cheese Heat oil in skillet, add chopped onion, garlic (optional), and basil. Simmer until onion is opaque. Garlic should not brown. Add crushed tomatoes and stir thoroughly. Cover and simmer sauce until it comes to a slow boil. Lower heat and simmer for about twenty minutes. Stir occasionally to prevent sauce from sticking to the bottom of skillet. If mixture appears to be too thick, add a half-cup of water and stir. Cut tentacles from calamari if not already separated. Wash and cut each calamari into approximately one-inch widths. Do not cut lengthwise. A small calamari should give about three portions. Wash both thoroughly. Set aside in a bowl. When sauce has simmered about twenty minutes, add calamari and tentacles. Then stir and cover. Simmer calamari in sauce for about five minutes. Do not overcook. calamari will become tough if cooked too long. Cover and remove skillet from heat until you are ready to cook pasta Cook linguine, or pasta of your choice, according to the directions on the package. While pasta is cooking, return calamari sauce mixture to burner to reheat slowly. Add three tablespoons of red or white wine of choice. Bring to a slow boil. Turn off burner and remove from heat. Place cooked and strained Pasta onto a serving platter and top with tomato sauce, calamari, and grated cheese of choice. OPTIONAL: Adding additional calamari to the sauce will allow some to be served with the pasta and some separately with a fresh green salad. Remaining sauce freezes well. Serves two. NOTE: In the 1930s, I remember my mother standing at the sink removing the thin layer of outer skin and the inner portions of the squid. She removed the tentacles and placed them in a separate bowL When I asked if she was throwing the tentacles away she quickly replied. " Nor. Sono buoniI" (They are goodI) Mama was right. I always include them in the sauce.
