Today's Birthday
Max Nordau (1849)
Nordau was a Hungarian Zionist leader, physician, author, and social critic. He co-founded the World Zionist Organization with Theodor Herzl and was president or vice president of several Zionist congresses. As a social critic, he wrote a number of controversial books, including The Conventional Lies of Our Civilization, Degeneration, and Paradoxes. Nordau was a fully assimilated and acculturated European Jew when what controversy sparked his interest in Zionism? Discuss

Marcel Duchamp (1887)
Duchamp was an innovative French-American artist who influenced the Dada, Surrealist, and Pop art movements. His irreverence for conventional aesthetic standards led him to exhibit commonplace objects as works of art that he called "ready-mades," intended as a derisive gesture against the excessive importance attached to works of art. His most famous works include the controversial Cubist-Futurist painting Nude Descending a Staircase and Fountain, which features what object?

Hilaire Belloc (1870)
Belloc was an important English author in the early 20th century. A highly versatile writer, he is best remembered for his light verse, particularly for children, and for his lucid and graceful essays. He wrote from the Roman Catholic viewpoint, and his views on Protestantism and Islam, which he called major heresies and threats to the "Church Universal," made him a somewhat controversial figure. What was Belloc's rather tongue-in-cheek response to the question of why he wrote so prolifically?

Handshakes Out, Fist Bumps and High-Fives In?
The handshake has been the preferred gesture of greeting, parting, congratulating, thanking, and sealing a deal in many cultures for some time now, but, in the interest of health, it may be time to loosen our grip on the handshake and take up "pounding it" or high-fiving instead. Shaking hands transfers 10 times more bacteria than fist bumping, while high-fiving falls somewhere between the two on the bacterial transfer spectrum. Still, none of these options is completely sterile, prompting one infection control expert to make the tongue-in-cheek suggestion that we reinstate bowing and curtsying, thereby eliminating hand contact entirely.

Teen Use of Human Growth Hormone on Rise in US
American teens are increasingly using synthetic human growth hormone (HGH) without medical supervision in an effort to enhance their athletic performance and appearance. Just five percent of high-school students polled in 2012 said they had used synthetic HGH without a prescription, but by 2013 that number had jumped to 11 percent. The non-profit Partnership for Drug-Free Kids, which carried out the surveys, said the findings highlight the need for better regulation and labeling of over-the-counter products purporting to contain synthetic HGH.

Quite a Mouthful
Doctors in India removed a record 232 teeth from the mouth of a 17-year-old boy in a marathon seven-hour operation. The boy was suffering from a rare condition called complex composite odontoma, which a doctor familiar with the case likened to a benign tumor. Previous cases of this condition are believed to have yielded a maximum of 37 teeth, so this case is likely one for the record books. The boy now has 28 teeth, much closer to the 32 of a healthy smile.
