Article of the Week - Play-Doh

Play-Doh is a modeling compound used by young children for art and craft projects at home and in school. Composed of flour, water, salt, boric acid, and mineral oil, the product was first manufactured in Cincinnati, Ohio, U.S., as a wallpaper cleaner in the 1930s. When a classroom of children began using the wallpaper cleaner as a modeling compound, the product was reworked and marketed to Cincinnati schools in the mid-1950s. Play-Doh was demonstrated at an educational convention in 1956 and prominent department stores opened retail accounts. Advertisements promoting Play-Doh on influential children's television shows in 1957 furthered the product's sales. Since its launch on the toy market in the mid-1950s, Play-Doh has generated a considerable amount of ancillary merchandise such as The Fun Factory. In 2003, the Toy Industry Association named Play-Doh in its "Century of Toys List".

Play-Doh packaging was briefly illustrated with children in the mid-1950s, but replaced by an elf mascot which, in 1960, was superseded by Play-Doh Pete, a smock and beret-wearing cartoonish boy. In 2002, Play-Doh Pete's beret was replaced with a baseball cap. Since then, living Play-Doh cans are seen on commercials and a new mascot called Tubby was seen as a meet-and-greet at the 2012 Toy Fair.

Article of the Week - Stacy's Mom

"Stacy's Mom" is a song by American band Fountains of Wayne, released as the lead single from their third studio album Welcome Interstate Managers on September 29, 2003.

"Stacy's Mom" appeared in the Top 40 of the Billboard Hot 100 chart (#21) and was one of the first songs to reach the #1 spot on the "Most Downloaded Songs" list of the iTunes Music Store.

The music video, directed by Chris Applebaum, pays homage to the 1982 movie Fast Times at Ridgemont High. The video features several comedic scenes illustrating the boy's attempts to get closer to Stacy's mother, the object of his affections and fantasies. There is a scene which shows Stacy wearing red heart-shaped sunglasses, which are very similar to the ones on the promotional picture for the 1962 film Lolita. There is also a nod to Van Halen's "Hot for Teacher" video.

The video begins with the boy (Shane Haboucha), Stacy (Gianna Distenca) and some other children standing at a school crossing. Stacy's mother (Rachel Hunter) then pulls up in front of them to pick up Stacy.

Article of the Week - Florence Nightingale

Florence Nightingale, OM, RRC (12 May 1820 – 13 August 1910) was a celebrated English social reformer and statistician, and the founder of modern nursing. She came to prominence while serving as a nurse during the Crimean War, where she tended to wounded soldiers. She was known as "The Lady with the Lamp" after her habit of making rounds at night.

Early 21st century commentators have asserted Nightingale's achievements in the Crimean War had been exaggerated by the media at the time, to satisfy the public's need for a hero, but her later achievements remain widely accepted. In 1860, Nightingale laid the foundation of professional nursing with the establishment of her nursing school at St Thomas' Hospital in London. It was the first secular nursing school in the world, now part of King's College London. The Nightingale Pledge taken by new nurses was named in her honour, and the annual International Nurses Day is celebrated around the world on her birthday. Her social reforms include improving healthcare for all sections of British society, improving healthcare and advocating better hunger relief in India, helping to abolish laws regulating prostitution that were over-harsh to women, and expanding the acceptable forms of female participation in the workforce.

Nightingale was a prodigious and versatile writer. In her lifetime much of her published work was concerned with spreading medical knowledge. Some of her tracts were written in simple English so that they could easily be understood by those with poor literary skills. She also helped popularise the graphical presentation of statistical data. Much of her writing, including her extensive work on religion and mysticism, has only been published posthumously.

Useful Knowledge! Said No One Ever...

Another competitive night for trivia peeps at Camp Bar on Monday. Aside from QM Mal almost ruining the sudden death question to decide the 2nd place victors, I'd say it was a pretty successful Monday Funday. Beers were drank, shots were taken, and guesses were written. Some hard questions thrown at the crowd! However, we did have some winners.

Champs crowned tonight - "Whats More Terrifying: Gadaffi of Michael Jackson's Lady Body" with 43 points. Fourth consecutive week of prize winning! Don't act like you're not impressed…

Second place tonight and winner of the sudden death round goes "Michael Jackon's Little Playdate Buddies" with 42 points.

Comin in clutch at the end!

Last but not least, let's give a hand for best team name, "Chesty, Tubby, Burpy, Deafy, Hickey, Weasy, and Awful 7 Strippers".

That might be a show to see!
