THOUGHT FOR TODAY:
“It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most Intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.”
~~ Charles Darwin
For this fall session, Fred Masback signed up
for 14 classes, possibly a record. I enrolled in only 6 classes, of which four are standing room only. Fred bicycles to and from class - saving a parking space for the rest of us.
It sure is exciting to be a member of OLLI these days.
As we grow in membership and class attendance, parking has gone from bad to worse. It’s time to carefully consider using the excellent Long Beach Bus System which is free for CSULB/OLLI students.
Our MEMOIRS class is again featured in the SUN with a memoir
written by Burt Schild. (page 8)
Congrats to the OLLI officers elected at our September membership meeting. (page 10)
I hope to see many of our readers at our December Holiday Gala on December 15.
Cranial Challenge Questions:
A father left 17 camels as an asset for his three sons.
The father passed away. His sons opened the will that stated that the eldest son gets half of the camels, the middle son to be given 1/3 (one-third) and the youngest son to get 1/9 (one-ninth) of the camels.
As it is not possible to divide 17 into half or 17 by 3 or 17 by 9, the three sons started to fight with each other. So the three sons decided to go to a wise man. The wise man listened patiently about the will and........
Cranial Challenge Solution:
The wise man, after giving this thought, brought one camel of his own and added it to 17 increasing the total to 18 camels.
Now, per the deceased father’s will ...
Half of 18 = 9. So he gave the eldest son 9 camels.
1/3rd of 18 = 6. So he gave the middle son 6 camels.
1/9th of 18 = 2. So he gave the youngest son 2 camels.
Now add this up: 9 plus 6 plus 2 is 17 and this leaves one camel, which the wise man took back. :-)
