The History Of Mother’s Day: The Woman Behind The Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day honors “the best mother who ever lived — your mother,” according to Anna Jarvis, who is widely credited with making the holiday an institution in the U.S. and across the globe.
The idea dates back to the 1850s when women in West Virginia organized into Mother’s Day work clubs that worked to reduce infant mortality and improve sanitary conditions for mothers and families. During the Civil War, these groups also cared for wounded soldiers from both sides.

After the war ended in 1865, women planned Mother’s Friendship Day picnics in an effort to bring Union and Confederate loyalists together, urging them to promote peace. “Battle Hymn of the Republic” writer Julia Ward Howe started a “Mother’s Peace Day” around this time, which encouraged mothers to support antiwar efforts on behalf of their sons’ wellbeing.
Many of the Mother’s Day work club events were organized by Ann Jarvis, Anna’s mother, who lost nine of her 13 children before they reached adulthood. After her death, Anna, held the first Mother’s Day observances in 1908 to honor her. Cities across the country adopted the trend, and in 1914 President Woodrow Wilson named the second Sunday in May a national holiday.

Mother’s Day Gifts :

While it began as a political antiwar effort and a celebration of moms, Mother’s Day quickly became a “Hallmark Holiday” — the company released its first Mother’s Day cards in the 1920s.
According to a New York Times article from 1923, Anna Jarvis resented that the day she had intended to devote to mothers became “a means of profiteering.” Though she initially worked with the floral industry to help raise the holiday’s profile, she denounced its commercialization, urging people not to buy flowers, cards, and candies.
She went so far as to protest a confectioner’s convention in 1925 and was arrested for disturbing the peace.
Jarvis fought for full credit for founding Mother’s Day, a battle that consumed much of her time and money and eventually left her poor, blind, and living in a sanitarium at the end of her life. She died in 1948 at 84 years old.

“This woman, who died penniless in a sanitarium in a state of dementia, was a woman who could have profited from Mother’s Day if she wanted to,” according to historian Katharine Antolini of West Virginia Wesleyan College.
“But she railed against those who did, and it cost her everything, financially and physically.” George’s Methodist Episcopal Church the daughter Anna became a Sunday school teacher here st. George’s but she was best known for the efforts she made to get Mother’s Day recognized as a national observance she and John Wanamaker who was a famous retailer here were the ones that got Woodrow Wilson to sign the petition and Jarvis died in 1905.

Today, about 133 million Mother’s Day cards are exchanged each year (more than any holiday besides Christmas and Valentine’s Day) and the day generates more than $20 billion in consumer spending in the U.S. alone, according to an annual survey by the National Retail Federation.

The spread of Mother’s Day :
The celebration of mothers can be found in ancient Greek and Roman cultures in which mother goddesses Rhea and Cybele were honored with festivals.
In England and other parts of Europe, the tradition of “Mothering Sunday” became popular during the 16th century. On the fourth Sunday of Lent people went back to their “mother” church and gave presents, normally flowers, to their mothers. For many low-income people, many of whom worked as servants, it was often the only time entire families could gather together.
By the 1920s, this custom fell out of practice, and the celebrations associated with it were eventually absorbed into the modern Mother’s Day.
In Panama, the celebration also falls on a church holiday, Dec. 8, when the Catholic Church honors the Virgin Mary. Much of the Arab world recognize Mother’s Day on March 21, and in Thailand, the day falls on Aug. 12, the birthday of Queen Sirikit, who many consider a mother to all Thai people. In the U.S. and around the world, many are beginning to make Mother’s Day more inclusive in order to honor various family structures, LGBTQ parents, and the adopted “moms” who often go unacknowledged.

Top Ten Most Expensive Cars Sold at Barrett-Jackson’s 2018

Barrett-Jackson is an American auction company in Scottsdale, Arizona. The company specializes in the auction of classic cars and antique cars and runs collector events in Scottsdale, Palm Beach, Florida, Uncasville, Connecticut and Las Vegas, Nevada.
This year’s Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach sale was a success, with 692 cars sent to new garages, for an impressive $38 million in total sales. A not-insignificant portion of this hefty figure was the $13.96 million lot of chrome-laden drop-tops from John Staluppi’s “Cars of Dreams” collection, claiming eight of the top ten highest grossing sales.

2012 Lexus LFA Nurburgring Edition – $770,000

1414

 

This one shouldn’t come as a surprise. You’ve seen it on our standouts list, and again on our sale wrap-up, so this bright orange coupe should be a familiar sight. What is surprising is finding a Japanese car at the top of a Barrett-Jackson docket, considering the auction house’s proclivity toward classic Americana. The seller has a heated supercar market and very low production numbers to thank for their big payout.

1959 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible – $330,000

6693236f9aea8456397ec82c76af1119d97df976

Talk about a change of pace. This gilded DeSoto was one of many Detroit drop-tops from the Staluppi collection, likely serving as one of the cleanest Adventurers in existence. Chalk this heavy sale to a blend of the condition, rarity, colorway, and provenance.

1970 Plymouth Superbird – $286,000

1970 Plymouth Superbird

 

Superbirds (and Dodge Daytonas) have always commanded big bucks at modern auctions, so it’d be strange if this stunning example of the be-winged breed didn’t make the top ten. This is a rare fixed-roof car from Staluppi, wearing a sweet period-correct vinyl roof and Alpine White paint.

1957 Chevrolet Bel Air Custom – $275,000

4545

 

Most of Staluppi’s cars were factory fresh, but this restomod ’57 Chevy proves even custom hot rods can claim top dollar. Unlike far too many Tri-Fives on the show circuit, this is a full build. Underneath the perfect bodywork is a chassis from Art Morrison, hopped-up LS3 V-8, and 4L80 four-speed automatic transmission.

2006 Ford GT – $244,200

413e37c2ecb375460a3ec35c3d8be862

Sharing supercar status with the chart-topping LFA, this bright yellow Ford GT claimed an impressive final price considering it wears repaired bodywork from collision damage sustained in 2010. Regardless, the healthy price is helped along by the uncommon color and mild modifications.

1959 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible – $231,000

1959 Cadillac Eldorado Convertible

 

You guessed it – another Staluppi stunner. This is one of a handful of Caddys from the Cars of Dreams collection. We featured the other Eldorado Biarritz in our first Palm Beach list – a lavender 1960 Eldorado with a cream interior.

1957 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible – $231,000

1957 DeSoto Adventurer Convertible

The second of three DeSotos in the top ten, this is an older example of the black-and-gold Adventurer that claimed the number two spot. Sitting in impeccable condition, DeSotos seem to be highly valued when compared to their Chrysler counterparts, likely due to relatively low production numbers.

1956 DeSoto Fireflite Convertible – $225,500

1956 DeSoto Fireflite Convertible

Continuing both the DeSoto and bright colorway themes, this ’56 Fireflite looks ripped straight from a movie set. Overall, a gorgeous and very striking car that is perfect for beachside cruising. Bonus points awarded for the Benrus “Desotomatic” steering wheel clock that wound itself as you steered the car.

1959 Dodge Custom Royal Super D-500 Convertible – $220,000

1959 Dodge Custom Royal Super D-500 Convertible

The name is almost as long as the car. Apparently, this is a limited production model, packing some factory-installed go-fast hardware on the 6.2-liter (383ci) V-8. This car has popped up for sale before on Bring a Trailer, along with a special appearance at the 2017 New England Concours d’Elegance.

1960 Chevrolet Corvette 283/290 Fuelie – $209,000

141412

Draped in one-year-only Tasco Turquoise, this minty fresh ‘Vette wears the very desirable fuel-injection system on its 4.6-liter (283 ci) V-8. It’s very well equipped, carrying a four-speed manual transmission, Posi-traction rear-end, and power windows.

 

 

Fidget Spinners: What They Are, How They Work and Why the Controversy

“Fidget spinners” are small, ball-bearing devices that the user can rotate between his or her fingers. The momentum of the toy provides a pleasing sensory experience, according to user reviews, while the challenge of tossing, transferring and twirling the spinners has spawned an entire universe of instructional.

Many spinners are marketed as aides for individuals with anxiety, autism and ADHD; Cppslee’s spinner marketing patter on Amazon, for example, promises greater concentration for people with those conditions, plus an opportunity to “bring out that creative genius lying deep within you.”

Unsurprisingly, these claims are probably overblown, scientists say.
“Using a spinner-like gadget is more likely to serve as a distraction than a benefit for individuals with ADHD,” said Mark Rapport, a clinical psychologist at the University of Central Florida who has studied the benefits of movement on attention in people with ADHD.

fidget-spinner-2329469_960_720

Scientists decided to find out whether there was any basis to these claims made by manufacturers. In a review of relevant literature published July 7, 2017, in the journal Current Opinion in Pediatrics, scientists including Dr. Ruth Milanaik, director of the neonatal follow-up program at Cohen Children’s Medical Center of New York, found that no research had specifically focused on the link between these spinners and kids’ attention. Not only that, but there were no peer-reviewed studies at all on fidget spinners, they said. With this lack of research, manufacturers’ claims about the usefulness of fidget spinners are baseless, the authors concluded.

The so-called fidget cube — which is a plastic cube equipped with various buttons and dials for fidgeting hands — may be more classroom friendly, according to a scientist who studies intersection of human computer interaction and games, who pointed out on the website The Conversation that the cube doesn’t require visual attention. “They can serve the same purpose as the spinners, but are more classroom-ready and less distracting,” Katherine Isbister, professor of Computational Media at the University of California, Santa Cruz, wrote on The Conversation.

Regardless of their usefulness in keeping kids’ distracted brains focused, fidget spinners have sparked a conversation about attention spans in kids and how to help the little ones focus, experts told Live Science. For instance, though there isn’t a lot of data supporting the idea that kids have less focus today than in the past, some research does suggest attention spans have decreased as multitasking has increased with the digital age, one expert said. There are various methods for bringing kids’ focus back to the lesson at hand, psychologists say, including fidgeting devices, activity breaks and the simple removal of extra distractions.

A trend erupts :

Fidget spinners emerged this spring, seemingly from out of nowhere, as a must-have gadget. Before December 2016, Google searches for the words “fidget spinner” were basically nonexistent. Now, teachers are posting about their frustrations with spinner-obsessed students on Twitter, and the toys even have their own forum on Reddit.

“I will call you ‘Annoying Spiny Thing’ and you will live in my desk drawer,” Kansas Spanish teacher Amanda Dickey tweeted, punctuating her message with #fidgetspinner and #teacherprobs.

Most of the controversy surrounding fidget spinners has been over schools banning them from classrooms. An elementary school principal in Evanston, Illinois, Kate Ellison, told the Chicago Tribune that the spinners have been a distraction in classrooms in her school, and that children with special needs have other, school-friendly options for fidgeting. Meanwhile, some parents of kids with special needs have hailed the toys’ benefits. One blogger, a parent of an 8-year-old with autism, wrote on AutismAwareness.com that her daughter was thrilled to see her classmates wanting to fidget just like her. School-approved fidget devices mark her daughter as different, wrote Miriam Gwynne, but fidget spinners are simply cool.

“For her, the fidget spinner is not a must-have craze to be like her friends, but more a stress release from the demands placed upon her during her school day — much the same as she uses a stress ball or her twist-and-lock blocks,” Gwynne wrote. “When schools decide to ban sensory and fidget toys, they risk isolating the very children they’ve spent years trying to include.”

The list of schools banning the spinners seems to be growing and now includes schools in Massachusetts, Brooklyn, New York, Florida, Chicago, Illinois, and even across the pond in Manchester, England.

At least one expert is disappointed by the bans. “These little gadgets should be called fidget tools, not toys, and they can be part of a successful strategy for managing fidgety behaviour if they are introduced as a normal part of the classroom culture,” said Claire Heffron, a paediatric occupational therapist in Cleveland, as reported by The Washington Post.

Spinner benefits?

There’s no doubt that toys that allow kids to fidget can benefit kids with autism. Occupational therapists often use sensory toys like tactile discs, Koosh balls and even putties or clays to soothe kids who have sensory-processing issues. Similarly, research has shown that movement can help kids with ADHD to focus. A 2015 study published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology by Rapport and his colleagues looked at 8- to 12-year-old kids with ADHD. The researchers found that those who participated in gross motor activity — meaning the movement of limbs or large parts of the body — performed better than those who sat still during tasks involving working memory, which is a type of memory used for processing incoming information. Exercise has also been proven to be helpful for kids with ADHD.

But without studies that specifically look at fidget spinners, it’s impossible to say for sure whether the devices could help kids with ADHD, Rapport told Live Science. He conjectured that the little handheld toys are not likely to help much. They don’t require gross body movement, he said, which is what appears to be responsible for increasing activity in the frontal and prefrontal brain areas that are responsible for sustaining attention. The spinners are also visually distracting, and so they could pull a child’s attention away from the chalkboard or teacher, Rapport said.

“Riding a stationary bike while reading, or sitting on a movement ball while working at one’s desk, in contrast, allows small (non-distracting) motor movements and would probably prove beneficial for many children with ADHD,” Rapport wrote in an email to Live Science.

Spinner safety

A bigger concern may be the risk of kids choking on some of the spinner’s small parts. The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission, is looking into reports of children choking on parts that have popped out of a fidget spinner, said Patty Davis, the CPSC’s acting communications director. And on Aug. 10, 2017, the CPSC released safety guidelines for fidget spinners, warning that the toys could be choking hazards and so kids under 3 should not play with them. The CPSC also said that the toys should not be put in the mouth, regardless of the person’s age.

Here are some tips from the Toy Association for keeping your kids safe while fidget-spinning: Follow age labels; shop at reputable stories (where you’ll find toys that passed U.S. testing); follow tips for light-up spinners (make sure the spinner’s battery is locked in the toy); check for broken parts (which can be a choking hazard).

Sophia was built by Hong Kong-based Hanson Robotics Ltd., which says its humanlike robots have remarkable expressiveness, aesthetics, and interactivity.
The announcement was made at the Future Investment Initiative (FII) summit in Riyadh, a major investment conference hosted by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) that aims to highlight the Kingdom’s ambitious Vision 2030 plan for the future.
“We have a little announcement. We just learned, Sophia; I hope you are listening to me, you have been awarded the first Saudi citizenship for a robot,” said panel moderator Andrew Ross Sorkin, Co-anchor of CNBC’s “Squawk Box”.

“Thank you to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. I am very honored and proud of this unique distinction,” Sophia told the panel. “It is historic to be the first robot in the world to be recognized with citizenship.”

Sophia ably fielded various questions on robots. When asked about the evil futuristic robots depicted in films like Blade Runner 2049, Sophia said humans have nothing to fear. “You’ve been reading too much Elon Musk and watching too many Hollywood movies,” Sophia jokingly told Sorkin.
