trivia 8/21

trivia 8/21

For many years, the globe on the "NBC Nightly News" spun in the wrong direction.
On January 2, 1984, NBC finally set the world spinning back in the proper direction.

1. What was the original title of Leonard Bernstein's musical, "West Side Story"?
a. - North Side Story
b. - South Side Story
c. East Side Story
2. Who was the first singer to sell a million records?
3. How old was trumpeter Wynton Marsalis when he started with the New Orleans
Philharmonic Orchestra?
a. - 14
b. - 15
c. - 16
d. - 17
4. The RITA awards are awarded each year for writing in what genre ?
5. What musician founded Rocket records?
6. In the animated movie, "ANTZ", who did the voice for the ant named Weaver?
7. Rich Uncle Pennybags is the mascot for what game?
8. What was the name of the town that was the home of the 1969 "WOODSTOCK"
music festival?
According to a 2001 EPA study, 2/3 of the waste generated in the USA came from
plastic packaging.
1. - c
3. - a
4. romance
6. Sylvester Stallone
Of the 29 million tons of solid waste generated in 2001, 35.7% was paper, 12.2% was
yard waste, 11.4% was food scraps, 11.1% was plastic.
Thirty percent of the entire waste stream was recycled, recovered, or composted. The
rest was either incinerated or landfilled.
Now, if the EPA would revisit this today, the percentages would probably be a lot different.

Walk with the person who's searching for truth........ run from the person who says they've found it !
