Greenville Record Argus (Newspaper) - April 5, 1986, Greenville, Pennsylvania Work links record Arcus saturday april a 1986, Page i work play share direct link this column is called a work links a a and maybe once in a while it is a Good thing to take a look at just what that Means. In our society Many people seem to have a very narrow definition of what work is. They see it As something you do from 9 to 5, for pay for roughly 30 to 35 years of your life. Everything outside that definition is somehow put in other boxes As play or Leisure time or fun or retirement or education. The boxes go on and on. The current economic restructuring in our country is causing every one of us to take a Good Hara look at that definition of work because it just does no to seem to fit anymore. For one thing there is that whole business of education. Education a As Many have traditionally defined it a was seen As a one time thing. You did it when you were Young. For the less motivated students education was just a Way of marking time until you went to work. For the Mare academic youngsters it was a ticket to College and in turn College became a ticket to a Job. No longer the vast majority of our so called work Force is going to have to train and retrain repeatedly throughout a working career. In Large part this can be traced to the by Mary Agria rapidly changing technology and the changing demands instead As Chams resulting loss of certain traditional that keep us from realizing our full occupations and phasing in of new career options that would not even have been a possibility to to 20 years ago education in our modern world it is a lifetime process then there is that Box labelled retirement. We used to assume we would do it at 65 or 70, hopefully with a Large enough pension to enjoy ourselves. Some workers in fact put up with unfortunate unhappy career no to that magic moment when they Are n choices for years a looking Forward to that magic moment when they Are free again to do what they chose career changes when they chose. And then with economic change comes the reality of Early retirement for some of us. Longer lifespans. And the Issue of living productively beyond retirement a using our talents in new ways to serve our society and give meaning to our lives. Work and play. Education and employment. Careers and retirement. These Are not isolated boxes any longer in our modern world. The various roles we Are required to play Are blending and merging with one another throughout our lifetimes whether we Are Happy or frustrated by this flux and change depends on our capacity to link one aspect of our lives with another. Are we building those links successfully or Are we viewing these changing demands instead As chains nip potential As human beings. As a child like most other children i used to grumble at times about work whether it was household chores or practising lessons or doing school assignments outside the windows of my Day to Day tasks i could see the magic world of fun and toys and playtime beckoning my parents bless their hearts were Wise Wise people and they gave me a link Between work and a a that has seen me through a lifeline of crises worries Job minting a Mary a my folks would say a there Isnit really a difference Between work and play. There Are just two kinds of play serious and not so they would go on to explain that what we did for a living our household tasks our studying our Community service and Volunteer activities were All really forms of serious play. What a child idealized As fun was really a less serious play a a silly time that kept our lives in balance. Just As a meal with All desserts gets awfully Boring after a while a to say nothing about fattening a so a life full of nothing but less serious play would not ultimately be fulfilling. So the trick was one of balance. And of seeing that work and play Are not opposites but part of a continuum that goes on and on and on. As a Childe it did no to make a lot of sense sometimes. When my brother and i really wanted to be running around the Campground instead of putting up the tent. Or when we wanted to be talking in the school Yard instead of doing our algebra. But after 20 years of working at this business of serious and not so serious play it is finally starting to make sense it is what enables a person to face retirement and aging with a sense of renewed enthusiasm. After All is it the salary and Day to Day routine that makes a Job rewarding or is it the Chance to use our talents. It is an idea that gives More purpose to and takes the fear out of education at All Ages and All Levels a in a world that demands that we keep on learning in order to survive work or play or work in play and play in work ? As parents we can give our children this precious sense of linkages that can last them a lifetime. And teach them that work is neither a dirty word nor a be Ali and end All like play it is an aspect a ideally a of everything we do. Counselor s Corner underage drinking returns with Spring it is that time of the year again. Spring the time when we say goodbye to the cold of Winter and hello to the new warmth it is a time of Flowers leaves grass gardens and underage drinking while everything else is announcing a rebirth of life and Promise teenage drinking brings on loss of dreams and often death before 20 the return of Spring brings sadness to Many parents Ana friends As they recall the snuffing out of a life before maturity.

When a person older than 21 purchases alcohol for a younger person or for younger persons All Are breaking the Law. Parents who serve alcohol to underage people at graduation open houses Are courting several kinds of disaster.

Thermometer s evolution traced in the modern age the concept of temperature is easy to understand. It is simply what you read on a thermometer but if you did not have a thermometer As the men and women living before the late 16th Century did not then you could Only discuss the temperature by comparing it to something that everyone is familiar with. For example the temperature today is above freezing this statement gives us an idea of what the air temperature is because we know what freezing feels like. It was not until the invention of the thermometer More than 300 years ago that we were Able to associate the temperature with a number. It has been known for Many centuries that substances when heated will expand and when cooled will contract. Italian physicist and astronomer Galileo Galilei used that observation to construct what he called a therm scope this Early thermometer was just a Glass tube Quot with warm air inside. Galileo inverted the tube in a Container of water As the tube cooled the volume of air inside shrank. A weather world enabling water to move up into the tube when Galileo again warmed the tube with his Lianas the air expanded and the water level dropped. Unfortunately because the device was open to the air. The water level responded not Only to a change in temperature but also to changes in air pressure it was 50 years after Galileo s original invention that the air pressure problem was finally corrected by Ferdinand ii the grand Duke of Tuscany. By closing off the therm scope at both ends the grand Duke created the a a florentine thermometer the thermometer was filled with alcohol which like air expands and contracts but has a much lower freezing Point than water finally in 1714, a German physicist named fahrenheit Decidua to replace the alcohol thermometer with one that contained Mercury a a Metal liquid which has a lower freezing Point than water and a higher boiling Point than alcohol or water. Fahrenheit decided to follow the example of the great English scientist sir Issac Newton. Newton called Zero the freezing Point of Salt water and designated that the upper limit should be the body temperature of a Normal healthy human being Newton decided 12 degrees should fall Between these two Bounds but fahrenheit feeling that his Mercury thermometer was eight times More accurate than newtons let eight times 12 or 96 degrees fall Between the upper and lower limits. This made the human body temperature % degrees. Unfortunately the melting Point of ice and boiling Point of water were now fractions to Cor rect the problem fahrenheit adjusted his scale slightly so that Freez my corresponded to 32 and boiling was 212. It was this adjustment that made the human body temperature the now accepted 98 6 degrees. Fahrenheit a thermometer caught on although in present times most of the world uses the celsius scale on their Mercury thermometers the United states still uses thermometers calibrated in the fashion of Daniel Gabriel fahrenheit a thermometer a deaths Eugene Emmett Eugene Emmett 30, of rid Ruff Sdale.
