 why do they throw a squid on the ice

why do they throw a squid on the ice

The octopus first made its appearance on April 15, 1952, during the Red Wings Stanley Cup playoff run. Two Detroit brothers, Pete and Jerry Cusimano - storeowner s in Detroit s Eastern Market - threw the eight-legged cephalopod on the ice at Olympia Stadium. Each tentacle of the octopus was symbolic of a win in the playoffs. Back then, the NHL boasted only six teams, and eight wins (two best-of-seven series) were needed to win the Stanley Cup. The Red Wings swept the series that year, and the Octopus has come to be the good luck charm ever since. The tradition carried over to Joe Louis Arena on opening night in 1979 when several found their way onto the ice. ...

 why was the korean war significant to the cold war

why was the korean war significant to the cold war

After the Second World War the world powers were not completely settled, and there were still unresolved issues between the West (the U. S. and its allies) and the East (the Soviet Union and its allies) especially with regard to world supremacy. These differences resulted in the Cold War, named because of the nature of the conflict. The Cold War featured minimal armed conflict between the hostile factions, but they funded wars in Africa and the Middle East. The war took a predominantly capitalist versus communist angle as both tried to spread their ideologies to the rest of the world. The U. S. initiated the containment program to challenge the Soviet Unions growing influence and this ended up creating the Korean War. North Korea with support from China and facilitated by Stalin launched

why do we put up lights at christmas

Truth of the day: the holidays just wouldnБt be Бthe holidaysБ without people working together to uphold its oh-so merry traditions. Like good soldiers, we rock those ugly sweaters, and we tie those massive Douglas firs onto the roofs of our cars. Sure, those yuletide chores may be invigorating, but they sure can take a lot out of us! So much, in fact, weБve literally stopped in the middle of a midnight present wrapping session to ask ourselves: Just WHY do we do this whole БChristmas thingБ anyway?! The short answer is to spread joy, of course, but there is a long answer that corresponds to some of the more bizarre holiday traditions, too. Today, we are going to address what is quite possibly the most familiar, yet most perplexing one of allБhanging Christmas lights. Like modern-day

why do we reflect on our practice

What is self reflection? Self reflection is like looking into a mirror and describing what you see. It is a way of assessing yourself, your ways of working and how you study. To put it simply вreflectionв means to think about something. Reflecting and composing a piece of self reflective writing is becoming an increasingly important element to any form of study or learning. Why is self reflection important? Reflecting helps you to develop your skills and review their effectiveness, rather than just carry on doing things as you have always done them. It is about questioning, in a positive way, what you do and why you do it and then deciding whether there is a better, or more efficient, way of doing it in the future. In any role, whether at home or at work, reflection is an important part

by Gregg Prescott, M. S. Editor, Try going outside after midnight and listen for 15 minutes. б Do you hear chirping birds at night?

why do people with diabetes drink a lot of water

WeБve written before about the. While there are a lot of sources about what symptoms diabetes causes, and even some good information about why theyБre bad for you, what you donБt often get are the БwhysБ. And while the БwhysБ arenБt necessarily critical for your long-term health, they can help you to understand whatБs going on with your body and why it acts the way it does. That, in turn, can help with acceptance and understanding of how to better treat the symptoms, which in turn can help you stay on a good diabetes management regimen. In short, you donБt NEED to know why diabetes causes excessive thirst, but knowing the mechanism behind it can make your blood glucose control regimen make more sense and help you stick to it.

why do people throw beads on mardi gras

It wouldnБt be a St. PatrickБs Day celebration in the Windy City without 400,000 spectators crowding the banks of the Chicago River to БoohБ and БaahБ at its (temporarily) emerald green tinge. But how do officials turn the water green? First, a bit of history: The dyeing tradition became an annual thing nearly 60 years ago, in 1962, but its real origins go back even further. In the early days of his administration as Mayor of Chicago, Richard J. Daley was a man on a mission to develop the cityБs riverfront area. There was just one problem: The river itself was a sewage-filled. In order to get to the bottom of the cityБs pollution problem and pinpoint the exact places where waste was being discarded into the waterway (and by whom), Daley authorized the pouring of a special green dye into

 why do popes have to change their name

why do popes have to change their name

Update at 5 p. m. , March 13: The в one that hasn't been used before. Our original post, written before Pope Francis was chosen: It's not required, but it's almost surely going to happen: The man chosen to be will choose a new name в one other than what he was born with. So, Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger became Pope Benedict XVI. His predecessor, Pope John Paul II, was born Karol Jozef Wojtyla. And so on back through history. How far back? That's one of the 5 things we'll try to explain. 1. Who started this tradition? The Kansas City Star reports in a story headlined "What's In A Name? A Lot If You're A Pope," that it apparently began with "Mercurius, named for the god Mercury," who in 533 changed his name to John II. "A pope named after a pagan god в that wasn't going to go over, PR-wise,"
