Page 12 POST-GAZETTE, OCTOBER 11,2013 Ray Barron's 11 O'CLOCK NEW5 Ready for this? A poll of 2,250 Americans were asked to pick an age at which they could live in good health for- ever. The average person's favorite age was 50. Speaking of age, we are now so old that we no longer buy green bananas. Seri- ously, I just can't believe I am truly an old, old, man! Will I live to be 100? I think so. It has been said creative people live long. Irving Ber- lin made it to 101. Wowl A husband and wife from Jefferson City, Tenn., have lost a combined 524 pounds in less than two years through dieting and exer- cise. Justin and Lauren Shelton weighed over 450 pounds and 300 pounds, re- spectively, at their 2008 wed- ding. But when Justin, 27, was hospitalized in January 2012, he was too big for treatment, prompting the couple to finally tackle their chronic overeating and sed- entary lifestyle. The chal- lenge brought the couple closer, said Lauren, 26. "It really strengthens you when you've got something hard ahead of you and you do it together." Huh? A Hawaiian woman persuaded authorities to re- design the state's official ID cards, so her 35-1etter sur- name could fit. Authorities had previously suggested Janice Keihanaikukauakhi- huliheekaunaele use her birth name: Worth. News from Giglio, Italy. Up from the bottom: Italians celebrated a masterful engi- neering feat when the Costa Concordia was heaved up- right. The cruise ship ran aground off the island of Giglio in January 2012 and capsized, killing 32 people and making the captain, who allegedly sailed too close to shore and then fled the ship, into a national villain. Now there's a hero: The South African salvage master, Cap- tain Nick Sloare, was feted like a rock star after lead- ing a 500-strong team in using cables and caissons to right the 115,000-ton ship. The ship will now be suffi- ciently repaired so that it can be towed to port and scrapped. News from Lima, Peru. Peru has overtaken Colom- bia as the world leader in the counterfeiting of U.S. dollars, thanks partly to the skilled labor of children. After police arrested one 13-year-old with a sack of $700,000 in fake $i00 bills and euro notes, he showed them how he hand-finished each bill, adding professional touches. "It's a very good note," said a Secret Service officer at the U.S. Embassy. "They use offset, huge ma- chines that are used for regular printing of news- papers." Peru is also catch- ing up to Colombia in co- caine production, but coun- terfeiting is proving more profitable. A bag-job! A man who allegedly robbed a Florida church was caught when his baggy pants slipped down around his ankles, foiling his getaway. Police said that Anthony Jason Garcia, 31, grabbed the cash drawer from the church's gift shop and sprinted off, with church worker doe Larkin in hot pursuit. Garcia's oversize pants slipped down his legs as he ran, and when Larkin dove at the suspect, he pulled the pants down further, trip- ping up the thief and lead- ing to his arrest. "Had he had a belt, this may have been a different outcome," said a sheriffs spokesperson. Trusting, you will under- stand what this is all about.

But the agency said that widespread use was unlikely, since "the beaver is not an animal which is bred, so supply is not that great." The U.S. teen birthrate dropped 6 percent between 2011 and 2012, and is now the lowest it's been in the 73 years the govern- ment has been tracking it. Health experts attribute the decline to sex education and the increased availability of contraception, Shame! Shame! A United Nations study :of sexual abuse found that nearly one in four men in six Asian nations -- Bangladesh, Cam- bodia, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, and Papua New Guinea -- admits to having raped a woman or girl. Half admit having used violence against a female partner. Big charge of power!

The astute Peter Beatrice of Swampscott, says, "It's a confused world. We're run- ning out of electricity -- and nobody even knows what it is. Ah, Peter Beatrice! The man has had many, many interesting experiences in the world of politics and as a lawyer. Perhaps he will au- thor a book and be assured it would be great reading es- pecially about his involve- ments with Governor Chub Peabody and other notables. For men only! The smaller a man's testicles, the more attentive a father he's likely to be. That's the conclusion of a study that surveyed 70 men who had a child -- between the ages of one and two. Researchers found that the smaller the man's fam- ily jewels, the more likely their wives were to report that they were involved par- ents -- spending a lot of time feeding, diapering, and play- ing with their toddlers. Brain scans also found that these men found it highly reward- ing just to look at their kids' pictures. Healthy news. All fruit isn't created equal when it comes to preventing diabe- tes. A Harvard University study that tracked the diets of more than 185,000 people over 12 years shows that eating strawberries, oranges, peaches, plums and apri- cots has no impact on a person's likelihood of devel- oping type 2 diabetes. But grapes, apples, grapefruit and blueberries do help ward off the disease.
