"there is a few more stories I would like to tell ...."

As you enter Burketown at that time (about 1954) there is a country store to the

left in that small town. Mother said that an old man sat on the front porch of the

store and ate salmon out of a can. The store is not there today because it was

no longer profitable and replaced by a grocery store in Weyers Cave. Now 

there are two service stations at about 2 miles on US Route 11 south from 

Burketown across from each other of Interstate 81, US Route 11 who run 

parallel and intersect with the road to Weyers Cave. Both of my families 

(the Clines and the Caricofes) intermingled at times because the BP station

across from the Exxon is where I bought Uncle Paul the sub sandwich and

he bought the beer.

Today if you drive about one half mile from the turn onto Burketown Road 

and look to the right you will see, a on maybe an acre of land, one man's 

memorial to himself. The public can visit during the daylight and see inside 

the building at his final resting place.

The Correspondent Who Scooped the World

Dominique Rowe / Hong Kong @thinkhorn  5:40 AM ET     

The war correspondent who announced the start of WW II and was once accredited to 

TIME turns 105 Monday

"A shaft of late afternoon sun slices through the heavy air of an impending tropical 

storm, landing on the floor of a modest living room in the heart of Hong Kong’s former 

colonial district.

On a blue two-seater sofa, a tiny head and bony freckled hands emerge from the loose 

rumple of a red and black Chinese silk shirt. This is Clare Hollingworth, doyenne of 

war correspondents, who turned 105 on Monday. She’s the oldest living journalist who 

has an association with TIME and the British correspondent who, nearly 70 years ago, 

got the scoop of a century.

In the first week of her career at the British newspaper the Telegraph in 1939, the 

then-27-year-old Hollingworth broke the news that World War II had started. Though 

she would continue to make her mark on front lines and front pages for more than half 

a century, this auspicious beginning remains her defining moment.

“Clare Hollingworth was one of the greatest reporters of the 20th century,” says 

Charles Moore, former editor of the Daily Telegraph, speaking at a PR event 

promoting Patrick Garrett’s recent biography of her life. “She got this paper’s greatest 


After the then-General Bernard Law Montgomery imposed a ban on British female 

correspondents on the front lines in Egypt in 1942, the undeterred Hollingworth 

approached the Americans to get her overseas — which is how she became briefly 

accredited to TIME, as recorded in the Library of Congress.

Born on Oct. 10, 1911 — the same year as Tennessee Williams, Lucille Ball and Ronald 

Reagan — Hollingworth was a small child when World War I began in 1914.

Throughout that war, the Hollingworth family lived on a farm in rural Leicestershire in 

central England, where talk of conflict wove its way into the fabric of an idyllic 

childhood, according to her biographer and great nephew, Garrett.

Over the course of her illustrious career, the diminutive war correspondent — she 

stood at 5 ft. 3 in. — would see more than 50 years of on-the-ground action, from her 

scoops in Poland at the beginning of the conflagration, to her coverage of the complex 

and bloody Algerian War. Hollingworth worked for the Telegraph for more than 30 

years as foreign, China, defense and Far East correspondent and for the Guardian as 

foreign and defense correspondent, while covering conflicts from Europe to North 

Africa and Asia, including Iran, Egypt, Pakistan and Vietnam. She also wrote five 

books: Poland’s Three Weeks’ War, There’s a German Right Behind Me, The Arabs and 

the West, Mao and the Men Against Him, and her memoirs Front Line.

In the year leading up to the start of World War II, Hollingworth was in Poland 

arranging the evacuation of more than 3,500 political and Jewish refugees to Britain, 

earning herself the nickname “the Scarlet Pimpernel” from Britain’s press.

According to Garrett’s biography, Of Fortunes and War, she had a natural talent for 

“cajoling reluctant government officials, juggling incomplete information, and 

managing chaotic logistics.”

Even so, her stint as a female Oskar Schindler “ended abruptly in July 1939,” says 

Garrett. “It is not clear exactly why,” but he believes it was down to “complaints about 

her methods” from British intelligence agencies MI5 and MI6.

Hollingworth had saved thousands of lives by regularly circumventing British 

immigration bureaucracy, which due to its heavy vetting process would have left many 

in the clutches of the Third Reich. Britain, however, felt she had flung the doors open to 

any number of potential spies and enemies of the state.

Within a month of returning to England, she had secured a job as a war correspondent 

for the Telegraph, and almost immediately returned back to the Polish-German border 

in Katowice, where she stayed with a diplomat friend from the Foreign Office.

Knowing that war may be imminent, and bolstered by the presence of a diplomatic 

flag, she borrowed her host’s car, and “motored off alone into Nazi Germany” to stock 

up on wine and aspirin. As she drove back along the border, a fabric partition 

separating the two countries flapped momentarily in the wind, exposing “scores, if not 

hundreds of tanks” in the valley below. And there was her first big scoop: the outbreak 

of World War II.

Three days later, at 5 a.m. on Sept. 1, 1939, Hollingworth was awoken by the sound of 

tanks rolling past her window. She scrambled to call her editor, as well as the British 

and Polish Foreign Offices, each of whom met her news with disbelief. (At this point 

Poland thought it was still in negotiations with Germany.)

Although profiles make much of her early scoops, the stories that garnered the most 

respect from her fellow journalists was her work during France’s bloody and 

intractable Algerian War from 1954 to 1962. It also won her several awards for 


“Algeria was a hugely complex three-way civil war,” Garrett tells TIME. “It was also 

just plain dangerous.”

Hollingworth would make her way into the Casbah — the epicenter of violence. “For 

civilians, venturing outdoors in Algiers in 1962 verged on the suicidal,” he wrote in Of 

Fortunes and War. “Up to a hundred people were being killed or wounded every day 

in shootings.”

“Her work there consisted of a long series of analysis and insights on the situation,” 

says Garrett. “She gained great insight into the war by being one of the only journalists 

to brave the bloody, dangerous and unpredictable Casbah most days, to meet rebel 




Vladimir Putin awarded 'Hugo Chavez Prize for Peace and Sovereignty' by Venezuela

President Nicolas Maduro awarded the prize to the Russian president as an 'ally', 

calling him a 'fighter for peace'

"Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro announced his own peace prize on the same 

day as the annual Nobel award REUTERS

The president of Venezuela has created a new peace prize in honour of former socialist 

leader Hugo Chavez – and awarded it to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The award was given on the same day the annual Nobel Peace Prize was presented to 

Juan Manuel Santos, president of neighbouring Colombia, for his role in negotiating a 

peace agreement with Marxist FARC rebels.

During a televised broadcast, Prime Minister Nicolas Maduro said: “I’ve decided to 

create the Hugo Chavez prize for peace and the sovereignty… I think President 

Vladimir Putin deserves this award.”

This is why the White Helmets were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize

Colombia's Santos says Nobel prize should help cement peace deal

Describing the Russian President as a “fighter for peace”, President Maduro unveiled 

a statue of Chavez designed by a Russian artist for the new award. 

Mr Putin and future winners will receive a miniature replica of the statue.

Speaking on air, Mr Maduro said the prize would be offered to national and 

international figures “who have excelled in the struggle for peace,” adding that he had 

chosen to honour Mr Putin with the award as he is a strong ally of Venezuela.

Hundreds of thousands of people have joined pro and anti-government

are led by campaigners who criticise the government for its role in the country’s 

failing economy.

Mr Maduro blames the problems on an “economic war,” however, which he says has 

been constructed by the opposition party with help from the US government.

President Putin was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014, despite ordering 

soldiers to invade Ukraine that same year.   He lost to Kailash Satyarthi and Malala 

Yousafzai, for their work against the suppression of children and young people.


The US is no longer the world's superpower. Russia has that distinction now 

under the leadership of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Because of the failing leadership of President Obama, Hillary Clinton as 

Secretary of State and the soap opera like events of the presidential election, 

the rest of the world is now laughing  and enjoying the declining power and 

the US's weakness in the world.

The only solution I see to this is that Donald Trump step down and allow Mike 

Pence to run for the US Presidency.

Of course, that's just my opinion.

Nearly one-third of the world’s population is obese or overweight, new data show

"No country has successfully reduced obesity rates in 33 years

SEATTLE—Today, 2.1 billion people – nearly 30% of the world’s population – are 

either obese or overweight, according to a new, first-of-its kind analysis of trend data 

from 188 countries. The rise in global obesity rates over the last three decades has 

been substantial and widespread, presenting a major public health epidemic in both 

the developed and the developing world.

Published in The Lancet on May 29, the study, “Global, regional, and national 

prevalence of overweight and obesity in children and adults during 1980–2013: a 

systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013,” was conducted by an 

international consortium of researchers led by the Institute for Health Metrics and 

Evaluation (IHME) at the University of Washington. Overweight is defined as having a 

Body Mass Index (BMI), or weight-to-height ratio, greater than or equal to 25 and lower 

than 30, while obesity is defined as having a BMI equal to or greater than 30.

The results are also available in an online tool at

Over the course of the study, rates of overweight and obesity among adults have 

increased for both men (from 29% to 37%) and women (from 30% to 38%). In 

developed countries, men had higher rates of overweight and obesity, while women in 

developing countries exhibited higher rates. Also in developed countries, the peak of 

obesity rates is moving to younger ages.

“Obesity is an issue affecting people of all ages and incomes, everywhere,” said Dr. 

Christopher Murray, director of IHME and a co-founder of the Global Burden of 

Disease (GBD) study. “In the last three decades, not one country has achieved success 

in reducing obesity rates, and we expect obesity to rise steadily as incomes rise in 

low- and middle-income countries in particular, unless urgent steps are taken to 

address this public health crisis.”

Looking at individual countries, the highest proportion of the world’s obese people 

(13%) live in the United States. China and India together represent 15% of the world’s 

obese population. Rates in the study were age-standardized, meaning they were 

adjusted for differences in population size and ages over time and across countries.

Among children and adolescents, obesity has increased substantially worldwide. 

Between 1980 and 2013, the prevalence of overweight or obese children and 

adolescents increased by nearly 50%. In 2013, more than 22% of girls and nearly 24% 

of boys living in developed countries were found to be overweight or obese. Rates are 

also on the rise among children and adolescents in the developing world, where 

nearly 13% of boys and more than 13% of girls are overweight or obese. Particularly 

high rates of child and adolescent obesity were seen in Middle Eastern and North 

African countries, notably among girls

“The rise in obesity among children is especially troubling in so many low- and 

middle-income countries,” said Marie Ng, Assistant Professor of Global Health at IHME 

and the paper’s lead author. “We know that there are severe downstream health 

effects from childhood obesity, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and many 

cancers. We need to be thinking now about how to turn this trend around.”

Regionally, countries in the Middle East and North Africa, Central America, and Island 

nations in the Pacific and Caribbean have already reached exceptionally high rates of 

overweight and obesity – 44% or higher. In 2013, the highest rates of overweight and 

obesity were seen in the Middle East and North Africa, where more than 58% of men 

and 65% of women age 20 or older were found to be either overweight or obese. More 

than two-thirds of the countries in the region had overweight and obesity rates of over 

50% in adult men and women. In Central America, more than 57% of adult men and 

more than 65% of adult women were overweight or obese, with the highest prevalence 

– greater than 50% among men and women – found in Colombia, Costa Rica, and 

Mexico. In the Pacific Islands, nearly 44% of men and more than 51% of women are 

overweight or obese, as are nearly 38% of men and more than 50% of women in the 


While the percentage of people who are either overweight or obese has risen 

substantially over the last 30 years, there have been marked variations across regions 

and countries. In developed countries, increases in obesity that began in the 1980s and 

accelerated from 1992 to 2002 have slowed since 2006. Conversely, in developing 

countries, where almost two-thirds of the world’s obese people currently live, 

increases are likely to continue.

Key findings:

More than 50% of the world’s 671 million obese live in 10 countries (ranked beginning 

with the countries with the most obese people): US, China, India, Russia, Brazil, 

Mexico, Egypt, Germany, Pakistan, and Indonesia.

The US, United Kingdom, and Australia are among the high-income countries with 

large gains in obesity among men and women.

Over the 33-year period of research, the Middle East showed large increases in 

obesity. Bahrain, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Kuwait were among the countries 

with the largest increases in obesity globally.

In six countries, all in the Middle East and Oceania – Kuwait, Kiribati, the Federated 

States of Micronesia, Libya, Qatar, and Samoa – the prevalence of obesity for women 

exceeds 50%. In Tonga, both men and women have obesity prevalence over 50%.

In sub-Saharan Africa, the highest obesity rates (42%) are seen among South African 


Health risks such as cardiovascular disease, cancer, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and 

chronic kidney disease increase when a person’s BMI exceeds 23. In 2010, obesity and 

overweight were estimated to have caused 3.4 million deaths, most of which were from 

cardiovascular causes. Research indicates that if left unchecked, the rise in obesity 

could lead to future declines in life expectancy.

7 warnings signs of type 2 diabetes

By Suzy Cohen for Rodale Wellness  Published October 10, 2016

"Many people get a surprise when the doctor hands them a diabetes or a prediabetes 

diagnosis. They go to the doctor for a routine checkup or because of some specific 

complaint, such as back pain or fatigue, and their lab work comes back with the bad 

news that their blood sugar is way too high.

If they were really paying attention to their bodies, however, they wouldn't be 

surprised. As diabetes develops, it announces itself in all kinds of ways, some of them 

subtle and others really in your face.

Feeling thirsty

Your mouth feels dry, and you want to keep your lips planted on the water fountain, 

despite the line of people forming behind you.

Dehydration is actually about your brain, not your mouth, even though your mouth is 

dry. Don't believe me? Your brain cells need a steady supply of glucose. When your 

brain is bathed in overly concentrated sugar water, it will summon fluid from any 

source to dilute the uncomfortable fluid surrounding each cell. Your brain gets this 

fluid from other cells, which leads to dehydration. You may have the urge to drink 

copious amounts of fluid as your body tries to overcome the lack of water.

Soda pop junkies, you're fooling yourself if you think that drinking soda will hydrate 

you. It never will. For now, drink more pure, filtered water. You can do it!

Frequent trips to the bathroom

It makes sense that if you are drinking more water because of constant thirst, then you 

will be urinating a lot too. You are staring at (or sitting on) the potty more than normal 

because there is too much sugar in your blood and your kidneys are getting a serious 

sugar bath.

If your kidneys could speak, they'd say, "Hey, what's the deal here? I'm overwhelmed, 

so I'm going to pull extra water out of your blood to dilute all this sugar!" Essentially, 

the floodgates open as your kidneys continuously draw extra water out of your blood 

in an effort to dilute the sugar bath coming through. All this water fills your bladder, 

and this sensation causes the urge to pee. Then you become thirsty again, and have to 

drink more water in an attempt to rehydrate. And the cycle continues. 

Your kidneys do their best to eliminate excess glucose. The amount of protein spilling 

into the urine also increases with time, which interferes with normal kidney filtration. If 

your kidneys can't filter wastes properly, toxins build up in your bloodstream. The 

insidious thing is that kidney damage can occur even when blood sugar is controlled 

by medication.

Weakness and fatigue

Many people feel run down and don't realize that their chronic exhaustion is related to 

blood sugar problems. The symptoms of fatigue can be easily masked with a mocha 

latte. Starbucks has a booming business, in part because of the ever-expanding 

population of tired, weak people with insulin resistance (and no wallet resistance).

When the glucose from your meals can't get into your cells, your cells can't make 

energy, so you feel tired all the time. Not to mention that exasperating sense of hunger 

when you just ate a little while ago. What's up with that? If glucose from your meals is 

locked out of your cells, you never get the energy boost or that satisfying sense of 

fullness after you eat. Bummer.

Numbness and tingling in your hands or feet

This sneaky symptom is really about nerve damage, and can take months or even 

years to show up. Your doctor terms this pain neuropathy. Neuropathy occurs because 

the bloodstream is overwhelmed with glucose, which is like acid to your nerves. It 

damages the delicate nerve endings that extend to the hands, legs, and feet. That's 

when you start to feel the pain, numbness, tingling, itching, and other weird sensations 

that you may be experiencing. If you have this symptom, you should discuss it with a 

neurologist in addition to your regular doctor. The good news is that for many people, 

it can be minimized or managed with several inexpensive, over-the-counter 


Blurry vision

If your blood glucose levels remain high, fluid may be pulled from your tissues for 

dilution purposes—including fluid from the lenses of your eyes. This may affect your 

ability to focus. Also, teeny tiny capillaries that lead to your eyes become damaged 

from all the free radicals. Free radicals are damaging molecules that people with 

diabetes produce in alarming quantities. This is why antioxidants are so important for 

anyone who has this disease. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals. 

Skin problems

Some people with type 2 diabetes have patches of dark skin in the folds and creases of 

their bodies—usually in the armpit, neck, knuckles, and groin. It almost looks like dirt, 

except you can't wash it off. Sometimes it looks velvety or bumpy. There may be skin 

tags around these darkened hyper-pigmented areas. This condition, called acanthosis 

nigricans, is a sign of insulin resistance. It means that your body is producing too much 

insulin in response to excessive blood glucose.


Frequent bladder and vaginal infections can be a particular problem for women with 

diabetes. You would think that taking antibiotics would simply cure a person's 

infection, but it's not that easy. In the general population, not just among people with 

diabetes, antibiotic resistance has weakened our ability to defend ourselves against 

microbes. This resistance is a deadly consequence of many years of indiscriminate 

prescribing of antibiotics.

Wounds and skin infections are slow to heal in the person with type 2 diabetes, and 

skin infections that cannot be healed could lead to gangrene and ultimately 

amputation of a foot or limb. It's much easier to prevent a wound than it is to cure it, just 

as it's much easier to not smoke than it is to cure lung cancer. 

Losing weight without trying

Many people with diabetes or prediabetes want to munch all day. Because their cells 

ignore insulin, which can no longer effectively move blood sugar (energy) into those 

cells, their muscles and organs feel famished. Improper fluctuations of hormones such 

as ghrelin (a hunger hormone) and leptin (a feel-full hormone) complicate things and 

trigger intense hunger. The interesting thing is that you may lose weight without even 

trying, even though you nosh all day long. Great, right? Wrong!

This kind of weight loss causes you to lose muscle mass. It occurs in part because your 

body is looking for some energy or fuel (think glucose), and it breaks down muscle 

cells to get it. Without a constant source of glucose in your cells, your muscle tissues 

shrink. This is especially noticeable with type 1 diabetes. With type 2, this symptom of 

weight loss is imperceptible for years because most people with type 2 diabetes are 

overweight to begin with and the subtle weight loss flies under the radar. Losing 

weight is important if you have diabetes, but you want to lose fat, not muscle."

(Reuters) - Influential Spain defender Gerard Pique has said he will retire from 

international soccer after the 2018 World Cup, because he is "tired" of the criticism 

levelled at him from supporters.

The Barcelona centre-back was the focus of attention in Sunday's World Cup qualifier 

with Albania after having cut off the sleeves from his shirt which bore Spain's colours of 

yellow and red.

Pique, who has an awkward relationship with Spain fans for his repeated jibes at Real 

Madrid and his support for a referendum on Catalan independence, was heavily 

criticised on social media and in the sports press for the act.

He stunned reporters after the game by declaring he was ready to quit the national 


"Yes, I'm tired of it and the World Cup in Russia is going to be my last commitment with 

the Spain team and then I hope I can be left in peace," Pique said on Sunday.

"I cut my shirt because the sleeves were very short and they were bothering me. I've 

tried everything but I can't take it any more, the thing with the sleeve is the straw that 

has broken the camel's back."

Pique has made 86 appearances for Spain and won the 2010 World Cup in South Africa 

and Euro 2012. He was also present in Spain's disappointing campaigns in the 2014 

World Cup and Euro 2016.

The outspoken Barcelona-born defender, however, does not enjoy the same rapport 

with Spain supporters as his international team mates.

He was resoundly booed in a friendly with Costa Rica in 2015 after making a joke about 

Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo and those wounds were re-opened on Sunday.

"They have succeeded in killing my joy in playing for Spain and even though after 

Russia I'll only be 31, I'm going to quit then," added Pique.

"I have always tried to give everything but while some people appreciate that others 

think it's better for me not to be with Spain."

He added his decision to not quit immediately was because of the influence of new 

manager Julen Lopetegui, who replaced World Cup winning coach Vicente del Bosque 

earlier this year.

"I'm very excited with this new project with Julen and I don't want to quit at all," Pique 


"I'll keep playing until the World Cup. We've started this together and we're going to 

finish it together."

Hillary Clinton has won the second presidential debate according to voters, the first 

opinion poll has found.

The CNN poll found 57 per cent of people feel Ms Clinton won the debate, compared to 

34 per cent of voters who felt Donald Trump performed best.

A further poll by YouGov found 47 per cent of people polled favoured Ms Clinton while 

42 per cent backed Mr Trump.

Among people who had previously been undecided about who they would be casting 

their vote for, Clinton also won narrowly by 44 per cent to 41 per cent.

The heated debate took place following one of the most dramatic and bitter weekends 

in the election, after footage emerged of Mr Trump allegedly discussing groping 

women. Mr Trump was challenged by the convenor about his comments. He 

responded that he was "embarassed" by his comments but said "I have great respect 

for women. Nobody has more respect for women than I do."

Yesterday I went to Walmart in Wooster and purchased 4 bags of flower bulbs,

ink for the printer, plastic front shields for my phone and visited the eye center.

The lady at the eye center said that I could get a pair of rose colored glasses 

just like I have for about $69 which was quite a surprise. I cannot find my 

prescription, so I'll go to my eye doctor this morning, get the prescription and

take it to Walmart. 

After leaving Walmart I went to Lowes and bought four bags of black mulch, a bag of 

ficus grass seed and a plant called Boston Ivy that was on sale for about $4. 

After returning to the house, I black mulched the two back corner flower beds 

and the fire pit bed that is just about half ways distance from the corners.

I planted bulbs in the new corner bed and, I hope, I will have time to plant most 

of the rest of them today.
