Oktoberfest Sets Beer Consumption Record

A total of 37 children were also lost.

Vintage Festival Section May be Repeated

Some 117 oxen were roasted on spits and 59 calves were also devoured, along with many thousands of portions of grilled chicken, sausages and pork knuckles.

The Oktoberfest marked the anniversary by devoting part of the Theresienwiese festival ground to a special historical section with a vintage tent serving specially brewed Jubilee Beer to the music of a traditional oompah band which played original tunes like “Heit gibt’s a Rehragout,” a happy song which means “Today We’re Having Venison Ragout.”

Some 310,000 liters of the Jubilee Beer were consumed as visitors emptied every single barrel of the rich amber nectar brewed in an unprecedented cooperation between the city’s six main breweries — Hofbru, Lwenbru, Augustiner, Hacker Pfschorr, Spaten and Paulaner. The total number of visitors was estimated at 6.4 million, and some 550,000 to 600,000 people came on Saturday alone.

The annual compilation of statistics always makes for entertaining reading because it conveys the gargantuan scale of the party that attracts tourists from around the globe and has helped to make Bavaria’s folk culture of dirndls, lederhosen and beer world-famous.

The visitor record was in 1985, when 7.1 million flocked to the festival.

Dentures Back on the List

The intriguing account of lost items provides a sound indicator each year of the power of a few liters, or Mass, of beer.

Firstly, and this may come as relief to close observers of Oktoberfest statistics in recent years, items retrieved from the tents this year again included a set of dentures, which had been absent from the list in 2009 for the first time in many years.

One hearing aid was also found, as were a leather whip, a live rabbit, a tuba, a ship in a bottle, 1,450 items of clothing, 770 identity cards, 420 wallets, 366 keys, 330 bags and 320 pairs of glasses, 90 cameras and 90 items of jewellery and watches. Visitors to the Munich Oktoberfest this year drank their way into the history books by downing an unprecedented 7 million liters of beer, beating the previous high of 6.94 million reached in 2007, the organizers said. The impressive list of lost items includes a set of dentures and a live rabbit.

Was it the sunny weather, the economic recovery or the special anniversary? All three factors might have played a part in the surge in beer consumption at the two-week Munich Oktoberfest this year to 7 million liters, up 500,000 from 2009 and just above the previous high of 6.94 million set in 2007, according to an impressive set of statistics provided by the organizers after the party ended on Monday.

“I’ve no idea why people drank that much,” Gabriele Papke, the spokeswoman for the festival, told SPIEGEL ONLINE. “They were simply thirsty.”

It was a record that befitted the 200th anniversary of the world’s biggest beer festival which began in 1810 to mark a royal Bavarian wedding. “But it first has to be decided by the city council and no decision has been taken yet.”

‘Exceptional, Unique, Incomparable’

. The addition of a historical section to the Oktoberfest was so successful that the organizers said they were considering repeating it in the coming years.

“People liked it so much that they started a petition appealing to the city to make it a permanent feature,” the Oktoberfest spokeswoman, Gabriele Papke, said

Michigan Family Alleges Harrowing Misconduct by Prosecutors, Police

27, 2007, using FC, Aislinn typed out something no one expected: “My dad gets me up…He puts his hands on my private parts.”

With just a few keystrokes, Aislinn had supposedly accused her father, Julian Wendrow, of the unthinkable — sexual assault as recently as the previous weekend.

The school, Brasier said, reported the allegations. But in 2004, the West Bloomfield, Mich. Diagnosed with autism at age 2, their daughter Aislinn was severely disabled — so much so that she couldn’t communicate. In a quiet suburban community north of Detroit, one Michigan family thought it was witnessing a miracle: After years of silence, their autistic daughter seemed to be finally communicating and even excelling in school. “It became pretty clear that we were wrong.”

The Wendrow’s lawyer, Deb Gordon, said that Aislinn’s new facilitator, Scarsella, had had just one hour of unpaid training before starting to work with Aislinn.

“Of all the people who have ever done FC with Aislinn, she knew the least about it,” Gordon said.

. Little did family members know that the technique that seemed to open their daughter’s world would provide fodder for an aggressive police investigation that nearly tore the family apart.

The story of the Wendrow family’s agonizing ordeal began with hope. “If an allegation was made, they would charge immediately.”

Two days after the initial allegations, Aislinn was brought to a special county agency to meet with investigators. family thought the girl had experienced a breakthrough: a technique called facilitated communication seemed to allow Aislinn to communicate what she was thinking.

The technique involves a trained person called a facilitator, who holds a disabled person’s arm while they type on a keyboard. For Aislinn, this seemed miraculous — for the first time in her life, she now appeared to be able to answer questions, complete grade level schoolwork and even write poetry. On Nov. Once again, Scarsella was by her side, even though the Wendrows, along with facilitated communication experts, advised investigators to bring in a different facilitator — one with no knowledge of the allegations.

That didn’t happen.

With Scarsella’s help, Aislinn seemed to divulge even more sensational details about alleged sexual abuse by her father, saying the abuse had started when she was just six years old, that her father had taken naked pictures of her and that he had forced her younger brother, Ian, to take part in the abuse as well while her mother did nothing to stop the abuse.

The allegations were doubly painful for the Wendrows. According to Brasier, the Oakland County Prosecutor’s Office had a reputation on sex cases.

“There was the sense that they’d never met a child who hadn’t been molested,” Brasier said. Child protective services immediately removed Aislinn and her younger brother Ian from their home and the local prosecutor’s office sprang into action. Knowing the allegations of horrific abuse through faciliated communication were untrue, they realized that all of Aislinn’s apparent accomplishments had to be equally false.

“We had to swallow a pretty bitter pill,” Tali Wendrow said. In high school, Aislinn was paired with a new facilitator, Cindy Scarsella. By the time she graduated middle school, a teacher had told the Wendrows that Aislinn wanted to go to college and become a professor.

“All those dreams we had we thought were dashed are back and now maybe she will go to college and have a real job, and have a lot more independence in her life,” her mother, Tali Wendrow remembered.

Female Scientists Respond Brilliantly To Biochemist Calling Women Distractions [UPDATE]

Researchers in the study observed that when women got hired, their salaries averaged nearly $4,000 less than what men are paid.

“Girls” in the science community meanwhile responded brilliantly to Hunt’s lunacy on Twitter.

Hunt, 72, a Nobel Prize winner and fellow with the United Kingdom’s prestigious Royal Society science body, came under fire this week for advocating for single-sex labs in a speech at the World Conference of Science Journalists in South Korea,

UPDATE – June 11, 2015: Nobel Prize-winning scientist Tim Hunt has apologized for his remarks at the World Conference of Science Journalists in South Korea, but stands by his assertion that mixed-gender labs are disruptive. In 2012, researchers at Yale found that physicists, chemists and biologists are likely to favor a young male scientist over a woman with nearly identical qualifications and are more willing to offer the man a job, the New York Times noted. On Wednesday, he resigned from his honorary post at University College London, The Associated Press reported.


After asserting that female scientists should be segregated from their male peers because they distract them, fall in love with them and cry, British biochemist Tim Hunt issued a half-hearted apology Wednesday — and women in science are letting him have it.

Following a backlash, Hunt went on BBC radio Wednesday morning to say he’s “really, really sorry” for offending people but that he was just telling it like it is. “I did mean the part about having trouble with girls,” he said. “I have fallen in love with people in the lab and people in the lab have fallen in love with me and it’s very disruptive to the science.”

Inequality for women in science is a chronic problem.

“Three things happen when [women] are in the lab: You fall in love with them, they fall in love with you and when you criticize them, they cry,” said Hunt

What to expect from a professional hearing test

You will then be entertained with a series of hearing tests through these headphones, including:

o a most comfortable listening level test (MCL)

o a pure-tone test,

o a speech reception threshold test (SRT),

o A word recognition test, also called a speech discrimination test.

o an uncomfortable loudness level test (UCL),

The hearing test results will also let you know whether your hearing loss is soft, moderate, rigorous or profound. Your doctor may be capable to give you a referral, and your insurance will probable cover the charges of your hearing test.

Finally comes the bone conduction test. After discussion, you will be exposed to a series of seven various hearing tests to weigh different facets of hearing loss.

Audible range tests can be carried out by an audiologist or an approved hearing aid fitter, as well as by a physician. In this painless test, a tool will change the air pressure in the interior of your ear and if any particular medical issues, such as an ear infection or a log jam of your Eustachian tube, should to be taken into consideration.

When you grace with your presence the audiologist or fitter’s office for your hearing test, you will first have a conversation.

Tympanometry tests involve movement related to eardrum.

Once your hearing tests are done, the results should be on hand straight away, and the administrator should talk about them with you and put them into the perspective of your everyday life. You will again be asked to indicate the volume level.

Then you should expect whether you will be placed in a soundproof room and provided headphones through which the administrator will talk to you or play sounds. The hearing tests will let you know if your hearing loss is:-

o sensory neural (relating to the inner ear hair cells and nerves), or

o conductive (relating to the outer and/or middle ear),

o A combination of the two.. A minute oscillator (which is just like a small disc) will be positioned on the bone at the back of your ear, which, in turn, stimulates your inner ear. Keep in mind – you are not bound to purchase your hearing aid from the professionals of your hearing test due to HIPAA regulations, you are at liberty to a copy of the results of your hearing tests without making a purchase.
