Associate Dean for Student AffairsClass of 2000 Rite of Passage Speech The George A♦ Sonnebom Memorial Lecture by E. Dalton McGlamry on ApriC 3, 1998 Finally, you are going to do what you came to medical school to do in the first place. You are going to be a medical detective You are going to examine patients. You are going to consult with patients and teach them the meaning of your findings. And you are going to treat patients. That is why you decided to come to medical school, is it not? For the past two years, and even during your undergraduate years before that, you have been studying the basic sciences and basic medical sciences Sometimes you got the idea that each scientist under whom you studied was trying to make you an expert in his or her particular subject And. yet. there was a reason. Because it is only with the basic medical background that you have acquired that you are able to be an effective medical detective As you begin to see some of the more complex cases in the clinic, you will quickly appreciate that few patients will present as textbook cases. Few will have all the symptoms you expect And most will have symptoms and signs that are common to a number of different Ills It is through the application of the background you have acquired that you will be able to reason through the patient's findings and arrive at an appropriate diagnosis and treatment plan. Starting now, if indeed you haven’t already begun, you are going to be a teacher To be a physician of any type involves teaching. Some of you may say. ’but I don't want to teach’. Ah. but you do! You may or may not want to teach in a podiatric medical college But you will be teaching the ciass that comes behind you. And as you become residents, you will teach your junior residents and extems. You will be teaching patients why certain tests are Important. You will be teaching them the meaning of your findings and diagnosis. You will be teaching them the alternatives of treatment and helping them to understand why one treatment is preferable to another Willis Hurst, author of THE HEART, has done a marvelous little monograph entitled THE DOCTOR AS A TEACHER. I would recommend it to you It makes a good case for the fact that ail successful doctors are teachers. Your ability to teach will have a great deal to do with your success as a physician. If you are going to be happy and really fulfilled in podiatric medicine you are going to be a lifetime student Up until now. you've largely had to read assignments and more assignments in every course you've token But from now on. you need to be doing additional reading. Even if you only have 15-30 minutes per day to do so. you need to constantly read other clinician's ideas You don't read other doctors' papers because you will want to copy them Very often you will find the ideas shallow, or outdated, or based on false premises. But that Is not why you read You read to stimulate your own thinking. Often you get excellent information from the papers and texts that you read But always stimulate your own mind and thinking Lawrence Perkins wrote, 'The essence of education is incompletion. A person who has completed his education is no longer educated. A measure of education is the awareness of an increasing number of things that lie ahead of you. Make the time to read something every day Allow yourself to be stimulated Allow your thinking to grow and evolve What you believe to be absolute truth today you may not believe tomorrow John Basmajian. the great medical writer who was at Emory University for a number of years, is a friend of mine. I once noted that he had over 40 books in print at the time I asked. 'John, how In the world do you manage to write so much?' He replied, 'I have to keep writing, because I don't want to be held accountable for what I thought 5 years ago The only defense against that is to be able to point to what I have subsequently written.' There is no greater fulfillment than that which one experiences as he excels in podiatry. Continue to read. Allow your horizon to expand.If you ar© going to be happy and really fulfilled in podiatric medicine, you need to come to grips with some basic economics. Some of your professors would argue that this concept is premature. They would say that you have no money to worry about at this time in your life. I would argue that this is the very time you need to accept economic realities, because the roots of financial troubles of the future grow from the soil of medical school deprivation. I know that most of you are living on a shoestring now, and by the time you graduate have tremendous loans that must be repaid. But I want you to be able to outgrow that. And you can. You can become financially independent if you just face reality You probably know that few doctors or lawyers ever become wealthy There is a reason for that. It is directly related to a perceived necessity to keep up a front. The need for the $1000 suits of clothes; the need for the $50,000 to $100,000 automobiles, the need for expensive country clubs; the roots for these needs grow from a feeling that 'I d;d without in medical school, and now I owe it to myself to live the good life' Unfortunotely. living above one’s means produces stress, personal, and family tension, and it guarantees that you will never get ahead. There Is a now-famous study out of National Institutes of Health which found that physicians have the highest alcoholism rate, the highest drug addiction rate, the highest divorce rate, the highest bankruptcy rate, and the highest suicide rate of any of the businesses or professions. If you stop and look at that list, you'll quickly realize that the management of money figured greatly in the progression of such problems. I have two good friends. Each came into practice owing about $100,000. The first friend has been In practice for 18 years and for more than 15 years has been earning over $200,000 per year. But after 18 years, he has yet to pay off the debts that he brought into practice with him. He teeters on the edge of bankruptcy all the time. He has a negative net worth. He is constantly stressed and anxious. He can't afford the nice home he would like. Yet he and his wife buy everything they see He has had 15 expensive new cars in 18 years. He denies himself nothing as long as his credit cards are working. He is living far above his means. The other friend has been in practice 13 years He has paid off all his debts, including his practice loans. He has bought and now paid off a nice, though not lavish home. And he has accumulated just over a million dollars in liquid investments. He has done this in spite of the fact that he earns only $125,000 per year. This second friend is under no real pressure He is able to plan his life so that he can spend time with family and enjoy his profession and friends. He has never felt it necessary to buy expensive cars to impress his friends. You see, it is not how much you earn. The Important thing is that you decide early that you are going to live on less that you earn and that you ore going to regularly Invest some of your earnings where they can grow and compound. That is the simple secret to accumulation of wealth. It also answers why most doctors and lawyers are forever stressed Get a copy of the book THE MILLIONAIRE NEXT DOOR, and look at the statistics relating to doctors and lawyers You will get a new perspective on the stress produced when you live beyond your means Finally, let me suggest that you involve your family In your profession Attend state and regional meetings and take your family with you. Let them get to know the colleagues that they hear you talk about Let them get to think of the meetings as 'our meeting' instecd of 'your meeting . When my children were growing up. they always looked forward to attending the APMA annual meeting. They got to know the children of the other podiatrists. As we would leave the meeting each year, they would typically ask. 'Where Is our meeting next summer? It is infinitely easier to grow within your profession or business when you have your family's interest and support rather than their competition. I can tell you in all candor that there would never have been the COMPREHENSIVE TEXTBOOK OF FOOT SURGERY if Becky McGlamry had not been willing to do the tedious time consuming job of the English editing She took each of the author's chapters. many of them in deplorable condition, and placed them in a readable form. Without that help we would never have finished the books. Both of my sons learned photography by helping to photograph material for the book. It pays to involve your family, and it helps to insure their support of your professional endeavors. You are getting a magnificent podiatric medical education And while I do not know the exact direction health care delivery will take. I do know that most people will continue to have two feet. And as long as people continue to be active, they are going to need your services I don't know what you will accomplish as a class or as individuals. But I do know that you will be professionally wealthy if you give serious attention to the subjects I have mentioned. Don't settle for anything less than a lifetime of learning. Anyone can walk on water if you show them where the stepping stones are located. The purpose of education and training is to point out the stepping stones. Learn where those stones are. and enjoy the walk to the fullest I wish you every success for the future. You are in a great profession. We look to you to take what we give you and make it better“The Thinker” at the Rodin Museum, Phlla, PA “To him whose feet hurt, everything hurts. ” — SocratesClass of 2000 Class of 2000Kyle P.

As the millennium began, Druids practiced dark rituals, while the Byzantine Empire dominated Eastern Europe. Conqueror Genghis Khan put the Mongols on the map in the 1 200s, and the Great Wall protected China against would-be invaders. The Middle Ages, though plagued by feudalism, heralded gallant knights and the governing ideals of the Magna Carta. The Renaissance and The Enlightenment both saw great achievements in art, science and exploration, followed by Romantic and Revolutionary periods in France and colonial America. As industry and capitalism grew, so did Communism in the Soviet Union and beyond. The World Wars and other 20th century conflicts brought struggles for power amid vast advancements in communications and technology. History's movers and shakers included Joan of Arc, the teenager who led France to victory against England in 1429, and Martin Luther whose religious reforms shocked the 16th century. King Henry VIII of England kept his head while several of his spouses lost theirs. Sir Winston Churchill helped England stand courageously against Nazi Germany. One recent hero is Nelson Mandela, South Africa's first black president and anti-apartheid activist. Time marches on...and the next chapter is already being written. Happened? In 1961, the Berlin Wall was erected to prevent residents of Communist East Berlin, Germany, from fleeing to non-Communist West Berlin for a better way of life. In 1989, the East Germans opened the Wall, lifted immigration restrictions and reunited Germany. Tearing down the Wall symbolized the end of the Cold War, which started when the Soviet Union created "Iron Curtain" countries isolated from the Western world. In the '50s, fear of communism in the United States resulted in the "Red Scare." What On EarthAPAVdO Wc-kl In A Flash, A-Bomb Creates Nuclear Age Crusading Towards The Holy Land i $ i With the world population now topping 6 billion and increasing at an annual rate of 1.6%, more people are living now than have ever died. The population is rising because of high birth rates coupled with much lower death rates as a result of better living conditions. Ten days dropped from the year as Julian calendar switches to Gregorian calendar Plastic is invented, leading to credit cords and toys in cereal boxes Indira Ghandi becomes first woman prime minister of India Where would the Ty-D-Bowl Man and bathroom libraries be without the flush toilet? After septic tanks and modern sewage systems were improved, civilizations significantly reduced the risks of severe illnesses and epidemics ► which were so common during the Middle Ages. Concerns prompted public health improvements, including garbage collection and disposal, water treatment and food processing. The Christmas tree began as an evergreen decorated with apples, symbolizing Eden in a December medieval German play. By the 1600s, trees in German homes were trimmed with candles, fruits and cookies. Currently, Christmas is a multi-billion dollar business with wreaths, mistletoe, stockings, movies, outdoor decorations and cards. When Muslims took control of the Holy Land during the Middle Ages, Christians from Western Europe vowed to recapture the area. Nine major Crusades were organized with ' tgs, nobles, peasants, and even children taking part. None was successful. Holy wars have continued to rage in such places as the Middle East, including the Six-Day War between Israel and Egypt in 1967. On August 6, 1945, a U.S. plane, the Enola Gay, dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan, annihilating the city and nearly 130,000 of its citizens. Japan surrendered soon after, ending World War II. Because of Japan's attack on Pearl Harbor, resulting in America's participation in the war, and the Holocaust atrocities perpetrated by Adolf Hitler's Nazi Germany, the destructive effects of World live in Setting Oft An Explosion The Royal Fads I Fashion The Answer. My Friend.

Holy Dionne Warwick! Perhaps these were even more reliable than the Psychic Friends Network. Through the ages, fortune tellers and the supernatural have fascinated seekers of the unknown. Was all this stuff for real, oh Magic 8 Ball? "Don't Bet on It." ASK LAIIR With the correct hip action, the bright round plastic Hoola-Hoop could rotate for hours. When Wham-O introduced it in 1958, stores couldn't keep Hoops stocked and sales topped $ 100 million. Who could forget Yo-Yos, Super Soakers, Slinkys, Pogo Sticks, Clackers, Wiffle Balls, Silly Putty, Frisbees and all those other preoccupying pastimes? The threat of war may have loomed in Lebanon, but the real fighting broke out in toy stores between frenzied parents who found Cabbage Patch Kids in shor supply before Christmas in the '80s. No sooner had consumers recovered from this invasion when they were hit with Power Rangers, Tickle Me Elmo, Beanie Babies and Furby manias. Dolly, can you say "Buy, Buy?" The miniskirt caused a sensation in Swinging '60s London and beyond. The mini series led to the ultra-short micromini, ankle-length maxiskirt, calf-length midiskirt, hot pants and virtually every look ever shown in music videos.

Then along came Magic Eye, random dot stereograms that revealed 3-D images hidden in colorful graphics with holograms that practically jumped out. life had become a virtual reality. More than 200 million people twisted their way to the 3-D solution of the Rubik's Cube puzzle in the '80s. Some tried memorizing the cube's configuration while it was still in the package. Preoccupation with puzzles dates back to the first jigsow puzzles in the 18th century. The world is still trying to solve crosswords, word searches, "Where's Waldo?" and other brain-busting challenges. That's Pretty Fad-tastic! Leaders. Followers. The millennium caught every generation a bit off-guard, but folks quickly had the lingo and the look down. When Elizabethan life got ruffled around the collar, everyone copied. Then poof! Powdered wigs, some several feet high, got nobles noticed in the 17th century. How about wooden teeth in Washington's time? By George, it beat having none at all! As the years passed, women wore the bustle and disco freaks did the Hustle. The '50s poodle skirts bred '70s dog tags, '80s spiked dog collars and '90s Old Navy mutts. Who knew there'd be just as much fur-vor over Davy Crockett coonskin caps in the '50s as with raccoon coats in the '20s? While some slipped on shining armor, carefree flapper dresses and Calvin Klein jeans, others followed different fads. Joysticks maneuvered Pac-Man into the arcade hall of fame. Suddenly everyone cared for Pet Rocks, squeezed into phone booths, pounced on Pog, pierced body parts and chose CB radio handles. Will there be as many "must haves" next millennium? Only the Magic 8 Ball knows for sure. As The Rubik Turns •1150 Stained glass becomes popular in church windows •1482 Sandro Botticelli paints The Birth of Venus •1600 Kabuki theater begins in Japan Nearly every civilization during the millennium expressed its culture and defining events through art and architecture. Great painters, musicians, authors and sculptors vividly captured the emotions of their day. Early Romans built coliseums and staged comedies. Byzantine mosaics and icons reflected Eastern Christian beliefs while Chinese painters produced deft landscapes. The Middle Ages fostered the rise of Gothic cathedrals, poet Chaucer's "Canterbury Tales" and finely woven tapestries. In the Renaissance, William Shakespeare pumped up a volume of still-popular plays. Michelangelo busily sculpted his marble marvel David. Novelists such as Jane Austen characterized the Romantic Movement of the 1 8th century while the 19th century promoted Impressionist painter Monet, socially-conscious authors including Charles Dickens and the riverside adventures of Mark Twain. Ballet legend Nijinsky leaped on the 20th century arts scene. Picasso broke with tradition to pioneer Cubism and Dali turned dreams into surreality. Don't forget Dadaism, Mamaism and Norman Rockwellism. Opera was a trill a minute with stars including Beverly Sills and Luciano Pavarotti. Stephen King and Ann Rice chilled with horror novels, while Ernest Hemingway and John Steinbeck proved more down-to-earth. Broadway was Neil Simon-ized, then "Lion King"-ized. __________________________________________ J When 19th century French sculptor Auguste Rodin created his bronze work, The Thinker, he used his knowledge of anatomy and movement to capture intensely human emotions as great Renaissance and Baroque sculptors Michelangelo and Bernini had done before him. Many 20th century sculptors crofted more experimental works, such as Marc Chagall's mobiles and Marcel Duchamp's creations from discarded materials. Smile. You're On Canvas Camera Renaissance master Leonardo da Vinci's 1503 portrait of Mona Lisa, the wife of a silk merchant, was extraordinary with its dramatic dark light contrasts and ultra-mysterious smile. A face immortalized in history was a cinch if one happened to know such artists as Rembrandt, Van Gogh, Toulouse-Lautrec or Wyeth. Many painters, however, opted for religious scenes, still lifes and landscapes. Arts Imitate LifeSouper Imposed Clawing Its Way To The Top Sometimes You Feel Like A Nutcracker Sixty-year-old Willie toman spent his life way out there in the blue, riding a smile and a shoeshine, a salesman extraordinaire. Arthur Miller's drama, "Death of a Salesman," became one of the most riveting plays ever staged as it questioned the American dream and explored the depths of failure. During the 20th century, audiences have witnessed other gripping dramas such as "A Raisin in the Sun" and "The Glass Menagerie." Call it the face that launched a thousand album covers, f-shirts and manic-depressive sufferers. Norwegian Edvard Munch's 1893 painting, The Scream, was an anguished cry of isolation and fear that influenced the 20th century Expressionist movement and reminded us of our own stressed-out lives. Vincent Van Gogh and Edgar Allan Poe were among other desperate artists and authors of the time. After Andrew Lloyd Webber picked up T. S. Eliot's Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats at an airport, he grabbed the theater world by the tail as creator of "Cats," history's longest-running musical. The 20th century set the stage for vaude-villian singing and comedy acts, as well as some of the greatest musicals to hit Broadway: "Showboat," "Porgy and Bess, " "Phantom of the Opera," "Hello, Dolly!" and "The Lion King." In 1892, Russian composer Peter Tchaikovsky turned the The Nutcracker into a beloved holiday ballet with his remarkable suite. Twentieth century dance gained popularity as composers wrote musicals that were imaginatively choreographed, including George Gershwin's "An American in Paris." Music and dance partnered dramatically with the Tango—followed by the carefree Charleston, Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers’ ballroom elegance, the Jitterbug, the Twist and Disco. Andy Warhol did much ''Mmm' Mmm! Good! for the art world when his silkscreen print, "32 Campbell’s Soup Cans," was exhibited in 1962. From there, the white-haired artist commented on popular consumer culture, coining the term "Pop Art.” His other creations involved striking images of mass-media icons Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor. Warhol helped other pop artists including Roy Lichtenstein and Leroy Neiman, enjoy their 15 minutes of fame.

The transistor radios, 8-tracks, CD jukeboxes and disemans that followed just couldn't a tune The Gloved One's 1982 "Thriller." containing such hits as "Beat It," became the best-selling album ever. Before the rhinestones, there was Detroit's Motown label, which signed Michael and his Jackson 5 brothers when he was still learning his "ABCs." With the toast of '60s soul—The Supremes, The Temptations, The Miracles, Stevie Wonder— music couldn't get mo' betta than Motown. Music of the millennium started on a somber note with the Gregorian chants of monks and ended on samba, "La Bamba" and "Living La Vida Loca." French troubadours roamed the countryside with poems and tunes in the Middle Ages. Lutes and flutes added richness to the Renaissance, while chamber music was Handeled well in the Baroque period. Beethoven, Mozart and Tchaikovsky crowned the classical music of the 18th and 19th centuries. Strauss then waltzed in to share the spotlight and Sousa marched over to greatness. The birth of the Blues and Jazz brought Billie Holiday and Duke Ellington, followed by Big Bands and the easygoing Swing era. With a twist and shout, Rock Roll cruised in from Elvis Presley, Chuck Berry, Jimi Hendrix, KISS and Aerosmith. "We Are the World" provided musical relief and Farm Aid helped heal the heartland.

Betcha dollars to jelly donuts that Elvis Presley will always be the King, with his swivel hips and voice that thrilled fans on The Ed Sullivan Show and the big screen. He burned up the charts with hits like "Hound Dog" and "Jailhouse Rock." He also popularized Las Vegas casinos with his shows, spawned Elvis impersonators and sparked kitschy trends like Graceland'; jungle prints, shag carpeting, flashy jumpsuits and long sideburns. Thankyuhverymuch. Who was this sexy singer who burst on the scene in her 1984 "Like a Virgin" video? Madonna set off a wannabe frenzy. Changing her look and style like a chameleon, she proved no one-shot wonder, continuing to wow audiences with her music, dancing, acting, tours and business sense. She also paved the way for other exciting female rock acts including Janet Jackson, En Vogue and Alanis Morisette. The Woodstock Music and Art Festival, an Upstate New York be-in that hosted music’: grooviest stars from August 15-17, 1969, to be the largest rock concert ever. An unexpected 500,000 fans, from hippies to anti-war protesters, braved traffic jams to witness this far-out trip guided by legends including Jimi Hendrix, Jefferson Airplane and Janis Joplin. Not bad for a single day's ticket price of $8. Woodstock later inspired such mega-concerts as Lollapalooza and Lilith Fair. was How'd four lads from Liverpool turn the music world on its ear? Once "I Want to Hold Your Hand" and a string of Beatles' hits reached 1, teens screamed for more. John, Paul, George and Ringo rushed into the studio and, armed with great melodies, created some of the most amazing songs of the 1960s, from "Yesterday" to "Eleanor Rigby." Yeah! Yeah! YeahlHealth Fitness •1284 Eyeglasses invented •1285 Toothbrush developed in China •1670 Existence of bacteria is discovered lOOl In the Middle Ages, the average life expectancy in Europe was about 30 years; today it is more than 70 for both men and women. Improved nutrition, sanitation, disease prevention and disease treatment are some of the main reasons for the increase. Despite numerous medical milestones, curing diseases such as AIDS and cancer eludes the population. In the '80s, Ryan White, a hemophiliac, contracted HIV through blood transfusions and later died. The AIDS virus is the latest epidemic civilizations have battled. The Bubonic Plague killed 40 million by the 14th century and the Typhoid Fever outbreak of the early 1900s claimed countless lives as well. Vaccines now prevent such diseases as smallpox, but any mutations could pose a threat again. Consumers have become more concerned about keeping healthy, germ-free and well-groomed from head to toe. During the Middle Ages, baths were rarely taken, but today showers and baths are taken daily in order to keep clean and healthy. Today toothpaste, deodorants and mouthwash are used daily. Vitamins and natural herbs ore popular and medical advancements keep folks functioning better. Workers on the run were sold sandwiches from horse-drawn lunch wagons in the 1 870s. America's fast food frenzy hit the road with the diner in the '40s and it's been burgers, fries and vending machines ever since. McDonald's put fast food on the map in the '50s, and its Big Mac Attack proved unstoppable. KFC, Arby's and Taco Bell have even sprung up in school cafeterios, airports, grocery and convenience stores. Would you like Beanie Babies with that? Prior to the use of anesthesia during operations, early surgeons and barbers cut veins to drain "bad" blood, or sucked it out with leeches to cure patients. Boiling oil was sometimes poured on wounds to sterilize them. Before nitrous oxide and ether were introduced as anesthetics in the 1800s, most operations weren't performed at all. Surgical conditions were unsanitary, causing infections to spread rapidly.

Heart, lung and other transplants give new hope, as do today's medicines compared to the quack cure-alls of the 1800s. Curling Irons Bodybuilding became a pumping iron passion after ex-97 lb. weakling Charles Atlas promoted his "Dynamic Tension" muscle-producing exercises in the early 20th century. In the '80s and '90s, Arnold Schwarzenegger wannabes bench pressed and lifted weights in the gym so they could burn fat and get fit. Harmful steroids were protein bars to performance. The mysteries of medicine, better health and longer living were revealed as the millennium unfolded. Diseases prevalent in early times were conquered through improved medicine, sanitation, immunization and eating habits, although other factors such as high cholesterol, smoking and junk foods brought on such foes as heart disease, cancer and obesity. The Food and Drug Administration now ensures proper processing to kill bacteria and preserve foods longer. In the 1 800s, Austrian monk Gregor Mendel formulated the basic rules of heredity that led to genetics, and better understanding of human makeup. Florence Nightingale brought reforms to nursing in the 19th century including more sanitary conditions and scientific care for the sick. Instead of the guesswork so common in the Middle Ages, doctors now work to control, cure and prevent illness. Medical specialties were created, producing such authorities as pediatrician Dr. Benjamin Spock who knew all about babies. Exercise became almost an obsession as gyms, jogging tracks and Jane Fondas sprouted, and personal trainers zeroed areas. Take a and say to yoga, stress reduction therapy, medications to feel happy energetic calmer, wrinkle creams, alternative medicines, just name it. Either people are living better or just becoming more high maintenance.Transportation •1100 Traveling carriage first built •1509 First vessel of the British Navy constructed •1825 First successful steam railroad operates in England Coming And Going Attractions Gas Transit Getting around was slow and hard during the beginning of the millennium but somebody had to do it. In the Middle Ages, horses got saddled with pulling wagons transporting goods and passengers for long distances. Viking ships found rough sailing to Greenland and later America, but compasses and better construction of vessels in the 1400s made voyages and overseas trade possible. Canals and paved roads hastened travel in the 1700s and the first major U.S. Highway, the National Road, created road rage in the mid-1800s. After Robert Fulton invented the steamboat, British inventor Richard Trevithick helped develop the locomotive. Life quickened as travel and hauling freight became more economical. Electric trains, streetcars and gasoline-powered engines drove transportation into the modern era. Suddenly automobiles putt-putted along and sprouted everything from running boards to fins. Airplanes soared, subways roared and spaceships explored. The risks of progress have also been great, such as the loss of pilot Amelia Earhart and her plane on an around-the-world flight in 1937, the Space Shuttle Challenger explosion in 1986 and numerous airplane crashes. Tomorrow's transportation could include human teleportation and faster-than-light travel. The ride's been pretty good so far, but inevitably some still ask, "Are we there yet?" Once steam-powered engines invaded 18th century Europe, a steam car, or horseless carriage, seemed a natural. The gasoline engine and pneumatic fire, however, made automobiles practical. Henry Ford's 1908 assembly line mass production of his Model T made owning a car affordable. This led to the growth of suburbs, superhighways, motels, road-trips, traffic jams, malls and, of course, fuzzy dice. i1700 1SOO •1937 •1957 •1983 Hindenburg airship explodes Ford introduces the ill-fated Edsel Dr. Sally Ride is the first American woman to orbit the earth in Space Shuttle Challenger Leonardo da Vinci dreamed of flying machines with wings, but it took centuries to get the concept off the ground. The Montgolfier brothers were full of hot air when their balloon ascended in 1783. Orville and Wilbur Wright had the right stuff and flew the first successful airplane in 1903. Charles Lindbergh and Amelia Earhart flew far and solo, and Chuck Yeager broke the sound barrier. Today, airplanes carry millions of business, pleasure and military passengers. But airline food still hasn't improved much. In the 1860s, the Central Pacific Railroad laid track eastward from Sacramento, California and the Union Pacific Railroad laid track westward from Omaha, Nebraska. The Transcontinental Railroad was finished in 1869 when both railroads met in Promontory, Utah. Coast-kxoast freight and passenger lines dramatically increased settlements and trade. Today's subways, light rail and ultra-fast bullet trains move commuters like crazy and make good action movie sequences. You'd be brave and dirty if you traveled in the bumpy horse-drawn wagons that existed before stagecoaches arrived in 1670. Stagecoach lines carried passengers and mail along routes in the West. Passengers defied hard seats and bandits such as Jesse James. Settlers came in covered wagons along with their freight, forming wagon trains that sometimes traveled only one mile per hour. Folks with the need for speed rode horseback. Sure beats getting seasick in a bumpy hovercraft or swimming if. In 1994, the chunnel made the world smaller by linking the continent of Europe and the United Kingdom via railway tunnel underneath the choppy English Channel. The high-speed Eurostar train can transport riders from London to Paris in just three hours. Will the future bring travel under the great oceans? Across the universe? Or back in time? Oops...that lost one's already happening. It's called the re-introduction of the Volkswagen Beetle. In the Cold War, the scientific power of the U.S. and Soviet Union rested on advances in space. After Sputnik I probed space in 1957, chimps, dogs and finally men rocketed into the sky. Astronaut John Glenn took Friendship 7 for some spins around Earth in 1962. By 1969, Americans were picking up moon rocks. Since then, shuttles launch and space stations orbit. ' X Are We There Yet?

While forms of games resembling soccer were played during the 1 Oth century, life rarely allowed time-outs for recreation. Thank goodness for the 1600s, when the English played Rounders, a baseball predecessor, and Scotland saw early rounds of golf. By the 1 800s many people led the sportin' life, including James Naismith who invented basketball, and the students of Canada's McGill University who scored with the first hockey rules. Native American athlete Jim Thorpe won fame in early 20th century Olympic track and field, as well as football and baseball. Babe Didrickson, his female counterpart, excelled in golf as well as track and field. As baseball became a pastime and football a passion, Babe Ruth and Hank Aaron belted pitches "outta here," Jackie Robinson broke color barriers, Joe Namath threw footballs and John Elway busted Broncos loose in the Super Bowl. Today sports revolves around such stars as heavy-hitter Ken Griffey, Jr., golf sensation Tiger Woods and hoops immortal Michael Jordan. Amateur and school sports are also serious stuff. Millions are on the fast track with NASCAR auto racing, on the edge for extreme sports and in the ropes for wrestling. What really makes an athlete like home run king Mark McGwire a hero? Getting on General Mills' Wheaties cereal box, of course. There's nothing flaky about the morning mania created since 1924 by "The Breakfast of Champions.'’ Sports merchandising—from corporate-sponsored Bowl games to endorsement deals—seems like the hottest game in town.

Since the modern Olympic Games began in 1896, heroes such as track star Jesse Owens, figure skater Tara Lipinski, platform diver Greg Louganis and the 1996 women's gymnastics team have inspired sports fans everywhere. Before modern boxing was introduced in the 1700s. the sport was brutal, with no rest periods or gloves allowed. Jack Dempsey, Joe Louis and Rocky Marciano emerge victorious in the 1900s. But no fighter jabbed and jested like Muhammed Ali. Quick, agile and boastful, "The Greatest' even wrote poems describing how he would defeat opponents. He also made heavyweight contributions to the community and human rights. America got a kick out of the U.S. Women's soccer team, which won the 1999 World Cup by defeating China. Their victory proved that anything men can do, women can do just as well. Big milestone: President Richard Nixon signed into law Title IX, giving girls equal access to school sports like football Four Scores Seven Yards The Green Bay Packers sent the Kansas City Chiefs packing 35-10 at the first Super Bowl in January, 1967. Today, it is America's most popular annual televised event with hype and million-dollar commercials galore. Not only are college and high school football championships also big, but the teams are just as good as the pros at the coin toss. In the 1100s, the French originated tennis, calling it "jeu de paume "(game of the palm). Today it holds court as a major spectator and leisure sport. Star servers have included Don Budge, Helen Wills Moody, Arthur Ashe and 1973 "Battle of the Sexes" rivals Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs. Recent top seeds such as Pete Sampras and Martina Navratilova have settled for anything but love by dominating Wimbledon and other championships. ■ Baseball, bowling ■wand other familiar sports appear out of the blue. Here's a roster of some game origins. Baseball: Cooperstown, NY 1839. Abner Doubleday based his new sport on bat-and-ball games such as "one old cat." He adopted the diamond-shaped field for his game and assigned playing positions. Bowling: Germany, third century. Every German peasant carried a club called a kegel for protection. In church, faith was tested by setting up the kegel as a target (representing the heathen) and rolling a stone to try to knock it down. Those who succeeded were considered free of sin. Fencing: Italy, 16th century. Fencing began in ancient times as the practice of swordsmanship to prepare men for duels and warfare.•1894 Movies •1927 •1933 •1940 _»fci. . • . i.

Now seven-story IMAX theaters, IMAX 3-D technology and simulator rides truly immerse viewers in movies. After Thomas Edison invented the commercial motion picture machine, the Kinetoscope, in 1 893, projection machines greatly enlarged a film's image. This led to one of the 20th century's most popular forms of entertainment, the movie. Sunny Hollywood beckoned such film directors as D.W. Griffith, who revolutionized film editing with The Birth of a Nation in 1915. Silent films made quiet stars of comedian Charlie Chaplin, handsome Douglas Fairbanks Sr., Rudolph Valentino and Jean Harlow. In the 1930s, audiences heard voices when "talkies" caught on after The Jazz Singer's premier in 1927. Screwball comedies including It Happened One Night thrust such stars as Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert into the limelight. Alfred Hitchcock made classic thrillers, and Frankenstein was a chiller. Casablanca dramatized war and Dr. Strangelove spoofed it. Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn lit up the screen, and Charlton Heston found fame of biblical proportions. John Wayne saved the day, and James Bond was never shaken or stirred. The Rat Pack cruised the Vegas strip and the Brat Pack cruised the halls in The Breakfast Club. Blockbusters have ruled recent movies. Sylvester Stallone punched up Rocky. Harrison Ford dodged madmen and meteors in Star Wars and Raiders of the Lost Ark.

With the speed of Paul Revere, she finished it off as a July 4th accompaniment to The Declaration of Independence, which laid the foundation for the United of America. Fate of the Union From the wilderness came a nation ready to fight for freedom and survive all odds. Native Americans had lived in the continent long before European explorers and colonists arrived in the 16th century. Thirteen British colonies formed, and the Revolutionary War erupted when England tightened control, and Paul Revere warned of the oncoming British invasion. Independence and the United States of America were both declared in 1776. The new nation weathered heat from France and Mexico, but acquired new territory such as the Louisiana Purchase. After gold in California was discovered in 1 849, America heard the roar of the Civil War, Reconstruction and Native American warriors such as Geronimo. Industry growth fueled prosperity until World War I and the beginning of the Great Depression. Two heroines, Rosie the Riveter and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, emerged during World War II. Peace efforts chilled as the Cold War, Korean War and McCarthyism isolated the U.S. from Communist nations. Life prospered in the suburbs and man rocketed into space, while civil rights struggles ignited. President John F. Kennedy was struck down, as were countless soldiers in Vietnam. Then President Richard Nixon struck out after the Watergate political scandal. The Gulf War, pollution and tragedies such as the Oklahoma City bombing hit hard in recent decades. Yet Americans still rally around the Stars and Stripes.Deal ing with Depression 1700 1800 "I Have a Dream that my children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character," said Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to Washington, D.C., protesters in 1963.

Other warriors for racial equality include anti-segregationist Rosa Parks, and Jesse Jackson, who pushed for African-American economic power. President Abraham Lincoln called it "A House Divided." The United States was unofficially split between the North (the Union), which sought to abolish slavery and modernize America, and the South (the Confederacy), which favored preserving slavery and an agrarian lifestyle. From 1861 to 1865, the bloody Civil War raged until General Robert E. Lee's Confederate army surrendered to General Ulysses S. Grant's Union force. Slavery was abolished and the United States became one nation again. •1916 •1964 •1994 Income tax implemented The Tonkin Gulf resolution authorizes U.S. troops to take military action in Vietnam O.J. Simpson trial begins In 1869, Susan B. Anthony helped found the National Women's Suffrage Association to seek equal rights for women. Her efforts led to passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, giving women the right to vote. Other women's rights leaders furthered the cause, including Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan. Role models such as astronaut Sally Ride and Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor opened still more doors. 5.000. 000 4.000. 000 : 3.000. 000 ; 2.000. 000 1.000,000 - The 1920s roared with prosperity until October 29, 1929, Black Tuesday, when the New York Stock Exchange crashed and millions of shares of stock were suddenly dumped, plunging many into poverty. Franklin D. Roosevelt defeated President Herbert Hoover in the 1932 election. Roosevelt worked to end the Great Depression with the New Deal. Since then, America has survived inflation, recession, tax cuts, and somehow, lunchroom food. It was a simpler time colled "The Good Old Days." The porch, or stoop, was the nightly gathering place for several generations of family and friends. Evening breezes and conversation filled the air while a passing parade of buggies and neighbors moved past. Maybe it was the coming of television, indoor air conditioning or the faster pace of suburban communities that caused the front porch to disappear. "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to be free," beckons the Statue of Liberty A gift to the United States from France in 1884, she has welcomed millions of immigrants to American shores with her towering presence in New York Harbor. Though they hail from many nations, they now call only one country home. She Carries a Torch lor FreedomCommunications APV kfr We're All Ears Revenge Of The CyberNerds In Depression-era Americo, radio was no! only a necessity but a reossuring source of comfort. Turning the dial brought cheery hit songs, soap operas, comedies, news of the world and President Franklin D. Roosevelt's encouraging fireside chots to the nation. Though the nation later became obsessed with television, radio kept up its cool beat with rock music, talk radio, rap and other listening pleasures. Going geek is a good thing if your name is Bill Gates. Computers revolutionized the speed and accuracy of information processing, ever since a punch card machine tabulated the 1890 census. In the 1970s, a computer's entire workings fit on a chip. Things got PC when Microsoft created software programs, making Gates a "bill"-ionaire. The Internet logged on in the '90s with waves of Web sites, interactive games, chat rooms and all-important e-mail. Pretty incredible.com, eh? No sooner had the Persian Gulf War erupted in 1991 than Ted Turner's Cable News Network, CNN, covered it nonstop. Broadcasts had never been so immediate. The Big Three networks were also shocked by the popularity of such other cable offerings as HBO, ESPN and A E as well as satellite dishes and pay-per-view. Television viewers, however, loved all the remote possibilities. F Gfe som© newspapers took ree om of the Press too far. To gain new rea ersh'p, some of America's leading newspapers began sensationalizing accounts of Spanish oppression in Cuba to provoke America's entry into the Spanish-American War. After this outbreak of ye ow journalism," news media took great measures to heighten credibility, though tabloid-style reporting still exists. On the flip side, investigative reporting gained popularity in the 1970s by exposing government corruption, such as Watergate, as well as improper business practices. the A. B. C. D. E. F. G. H.

It's become one of today's most valuable communication devices, linking people throughout the world at lightning speed. From the telephone's humble beginnings have emerged high-speed fiber optic networks, fax machines, cellular phones, computer modems and videophones. There's some connection here. Get The Message Already? People spoke, wrote letters and sent messengers before this millennium but communication was usually local and slow. Most mm church leaders were among the few who could read. Monks copied books by hand »y Middle Ages books were religious because 3mong )piedl and town criers were neard since they announced news. Printed books of the Renaissance allowed the masses to read the Bible and other works. By the 1600s, newspapers enabled inquiring minds to read ship schedules. Benjamin Franklin helped establish regular postal service in the 1700s and the Pony Express ran mail crosscountry in the 1 800s. While steamships and locomotives sped the spread of news, it wasn't until Samuel Morse invented the telegraph in the 1840s that coded messages were transmitted rapidly. Cameras, the typewriter, telephone, phonograph and motion pictures put communications on an even faster track. Advances came in short and long waves when Guglielmo Marconi invented radio. Television was perfected, and tape recorders came into play. Since the 1960s, communication satellites relayed TV, radio and other signals across the planet. Computers and modems instantly processed data, and the Internet linked the world. Broadcast journalists, such as 20 20's Barbara Walters, fueled the rise of information junkies. Fiber optics, VCRs, CD-ROMs and HDTV not only furthered technology but gave adults lots of expensive new toys.

Front Desk Barbara Williams. Shoe MuseumJames V. Ganley, DPM 1930-1992 When Dr Ganley was a freshman at Villanova, he was taking a very tough chemistry course. It made him question his decision to take pre-med. He was thinking about whether he should change his majors, switch colleges, etc. He was disheartened to the point that he walked with his head hanging. As he approached 4th St in Bridgeport, he found a piece of paper on the sidewalk. It was the following poem. “Don't Quit99 became his motto. He shared this with his children and many others when they were discouraged. Don't Quit When things go wrong as they sometimes will, When the road you're trudging seems all uphill, When the funds are low and the debts are high. And you want to smile, but you have to sigh, When care is pressing you down a bit, Rest if you must — but don't quit. Life is queer with its twists and turns. As every one of us learns. And many a failure turns about, When he might have won had he stuck it out. Don't give up though the pace seems slow, You may succeed with another blow. Success is failure turned inside out. The silver tint of the clouds of doubt. You never can tell how close you are. It may be near when it seems so far. So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit. It's when things seem worst that you must not quit. — AnonymousAdvertisements Class of 2000 AdsI)r. David Allen.
