This Saturday’s show was another short one and I flew solo. Here’s the recap…
Cafe Talk: What have you eaten in the last 24 hours that you know wasn’t healthy for you?
On this day in history…
* 1913: Henry Ford’s entire Highland Park automobile factory was run on a continuously moving assembly line for the first time. Prior to this, automobiles were produced at a rate of only a few a day. The new moving assembly line improved production from 12 1/2 hours to just 2 hours and 40 minutes (and ultimately 1 hour and 33 minutes) boosting annual output to well over 200,000 units a year.
* 1968: The United States movie industry adopted a film ratings system for the first time: G (for general audiences), M (for mature audiences), R (no one under 16 admitted without an adult), and X (no one under 16 admitted).
Since the late 1990s, the Motion Picture Assn America film ratings have been as follows:
|G – General Audiences
All ages admitted. Nothing that would offend parents for viewing by children.
|PG – Parental Guidance Suggested
Some material may not be suitable for children. Parents urged to give “parental guidance”. May contain some material parents might not like for their young children.
|PG-13 – Parents Strongly Cautioned
Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13. Parents are urged to be cautious. Some material may be inappropriate for pre-teenagers.
|R – Restricted
Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian. Contains some adult material. Parents are urged to learn more about the film before taking their young children with them.
|NC-17 – Adults Only
No One 17 and Under Admitted. Clearly adult. Children are not admitted.
If a film has not been submitted for a rating or is an uncut version of a film that was submitted, the labels Not Rated (NR) or Unrated (UR) are often used.
If a film has not yet been assigned a final rating, the label This Film Is Not Yet Rated is used in trailers and television commercials.
* 1985: A mudslide in Ponce, Puerto Rico, killed an estimated 500 people in the island’s worst disaster of the 20th century. Update, the current Governor of Puerto Rico is calling the devastation of Maria, the island’s worst disaster in modern times.
*Update on Los Vegas Nevada’s (Mandalay Resort and Casino) shooting on Sunday night at the Country Music Concert. 58 dead,k 530 wounded. On record as the United States worst mass shooting. Apparently the shooter booked an hotel room in Chicago overlooking Grant Park during the Lollapalooza Weekend.
*Also, another hurricane (Nate) is expected to hit the U.S. Gulf Coast.
I kept Café Talk light to get our minds off the devastation. Some Facebookers and a few callers chimed in sharing chocolate, candy, etc.
We didn’t have time for Entertainment Talk this week.
However, before signing off, I reminded everyone about the upcoming 10th Annual Christmas Celebration broadcast on Saturday, December 2, 2017. You’ll meet one of the singers next week so be sure to tune in.
Finally, congratulations to Jacqueline L. of Joliet. She was the winner of the first of the 12 Saturdays til Christmas Gift bag give away. Again, tune in next Saturday for your chance to win. The audio for this broadcast will be posted as soon as possible.
