  • Bron Beal, Executive Director of the Dallas Winter Boat Expo, says, "With new digital technology, you can set up a fishing mode, for example, that with one push of a button turns on the fishfinder, starts pumping water through the live well, lowers the electric motor or puts power to the downriggers. You wish you could flip on the cockpit lights before you get out of the truck in the pre-dawn hours? Digital switching and sensors can be used to turn things on and off remotely."

  • Where does this strange reflex behavior come from? One suggestion is that hiccups may have evolved along with other reflexes developed in mammals that allow them to coordinate suckling milk and breathing. Hiccups are found only in mammals, and are most common in infants, becoming rare as mammals age.

  • 1839 – birth of Paul Cézanne, French painter. Paul Cézanne (19 January 1839 – 22 October 1906) was a French artist and Post-Impressionist painter whose work laid the foundations of the transition from the 19th-century conception of artistic endeavor to a new and radically different world of art in the 20th century. Cézanne is said to have formed the bridge between late 19th-century Impressionism and the early 20th century's new line of artistic enquiry, Cubism. Cézanne's often repetitive, exploratory brushstrokes are highly characteristic and clearly recognizable. He used planes of colour and small brushstrokes that build up to form complex fields. The paintings convey Cézanne's intense study of his subjects. Both Matisse and Picasso are said to have remarked that Cézanne "is the father of us all."
