[q&a] Alex Trebek On 'jeopardy!'s' Longevity, His Health Issues And When He Might Retire | Hollywood Reporter

[q&a] Alex Trebek On 'jeopardy!'s' Longevity, His Health Issues And When He Might Retire | Hollywood Reporter

As the game show turns 50, the 73-year-old, Canada-born host who has spent 30 years grilling contestants about everything from radioactive isotopes to the War of 1812 answers THR's questions. A version of this story first appeared in the May 23 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. I was counting up my various surgeries the other day and I think it's close to 20 now different parts of my body and people often ask, they say, "You appear to be in good shape, do you work out?" I say, "No." "Do you diet?" "No." "Do you eat well?" "Well, sort of," but my breakfast of champions for years was a Snickers and a Diet Pepsi, and this past year I ran into a nutritionist who said, "Oh, Alex that's terrible! You've got to be eating better than that at the start of the day." So I changed. I stopped eating Snickers and Diet Pepsi and I replaced them with Milky Ways and Diet Cokes, so you're not going to catch me eating properly in the mornings. I do have a good solid dinner every evening, but I find that there must be some kind of camel blood in me because if I'm working outside and I love working around the house if I'm doing physical labor I never think of food; I don't get hungry, I don't get thirsty, and as a result my body cramps up like mad in the evenings, and I just go crazy complaining. And so I should drink more water, but I don't have a regimen, a good-health type regimen. Did the heart attack do anything to change your regimen? No, and the second heart attack didn't do anything either, so I'm good. PHOTOS:'Jeopardy!' at 50: Through the Years Congratulations on your Guinness record as the person who has hosted the most TV game shows. Have you had any communication with Bob Barker, whose record you broke? No, we haven't had any communication about this. I had lunch with Continue reading >>

Is The Future Of Our Children In Jeopardy?

Is The Future Of Our Children In Jeopardy?

Is the Future of Our Children in Jeopardy? Is the Future of Our Children in Jeopardy? Health Hacks One in five children now faces increased risks for serious obesity-related conditions. DID YOU KNOW?: Type-2 Diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol are striking our children more than ever before. Over the past three decades, the rate of childhood obesity in the United States has tripled. Nearly one in three of our children is overweight or obese,and less than 22 percent of them are getting the recommended amounts of fruit and vegetables each day.The health and future of our children is in jeopardy, and the implications are serious. To put it in perspective, one in five children now faces increased risks for serious obesity-related conditions. In fact, Type-2 Diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol are striking our children more than ever before. To put it plainly, if we cant stop this trend, todays generation of children will be the first to live shorter lives than their parents. Our childrens lifestyle has changed dramatically over the past two decades. From physical education classes being cut in schools to the explosive popularity of video games and social networking, our childrens concept of "play" now involves a chair and a scree. Yet this is only just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many factors that have a hand in the diminishing quality of our children's health; we must recognize and address each of them. "Through diet, activity, and family involvement, you can take ownership of your childs and your familys health." Food portions, for instance, have gotten bigger, fast food is seemingly everywhere and our culture promotes less physical activity. It all adds up to our children eating more bad food and moving less. And often, economically disadvantage Continue reading >>

Diabetes Jeopardy! | A Mom's World

Diabetes Jeopardy! | A Mom's World

musings on motherhood, writing, and other stuff, by Jennifer Clark Estes Sometimes I wonder if anyone in my house can remember a time when diabetes wasnt always on our minds. Its become part of our normal, the routine, something like washing your hands before you eat dinner or the fact that theres homework on school days. You dont think too much about it its justthere. Most days, anyway. Some days, its all we talk about or think about. Maybe because Mitzis very high or very low or is sick or has a lot of sports or shes rebelling in her preteen way about all the stuff in her life and diabetes management is just another boundary to push. Yesterday, we all had diabetes on the mind because of MCAS, the state-wide mandated standardized tests given twice a year. Mitzi had her first round yesterday, so, starting the night before, we prepared. Not for the academics, though we prepared for the blood sugars. MCAS is a unique annoyance for Mitzi (even more than it usually is for every other child or adult who has to suffer the ridiculous things). If her blood sugar is too high, she cant start the test when the other kids do and cant even start until its normal. And if it doesnt normalize in enough time that she can take the test on that particular day, she has to make it up, missing class. If it happens on test day number two well, more makeups, more missed class. Avoiding that scenario was in all of our best interests. Blood sugar was on my mind when I woke up. What would it be? How early should I wake her up to test and find out? A low-carb breakfast was on the menu (scrambled eggs, while the other kids got pancakes). Would it be okay? Luckily, it was. Normal at breakfast, even lower throughout the day. We discussed it at dinner, praising Mitzi for managing herself so well all Continue reading >>

From Sciencewriters: What Is

From Sciencewriters: What Is "jeopardy!"?

From ScienceWriters: What is "Jeopardy!"? From ScienceWriters: What is "Jeopardy!"? Submitted by Cybrarian on Thu, 10/15/2015 - 08:12 On March 10, at a massive sound stage here in the heart of Los Angeles, Alex Trebek stared down three contestants on the game show "Jeopardy!" The legendary host has presided over the TV show for 31 years, and that day he read off the following clue, which also appeared on a blue screen behind him: This condition has doubled in the last 30 years in U.S. kids & is linked to increased risk for diabetes. "Jeopardy!" famously phrases its clues as answers. Contestants win money if they are first to press their buzzer and can then come up with the matching question or lose money if they fail. After one contestant buzzed in and offered "What is autism?," Trebek swiftly rejected the response and turned to the next one to buzz in. That person earned Trebeks approval with: "What is obesity?" But this was a matter of science, which is both a mainstay of the show and among the trickiest territories it covers. Billy Wisse, head writer for "Jeopardy!" and one of the judges who sits on the set to evaluate nuances in responses, immediately got on the phone to his team of 15 writers and researchers, who sit about a city block from the sound stage. They watch the taping live and Google madly when a wrong response is plausible. Wisse soon asked a producer on the set to stop taping while his team figured out if autism was also linked to diabetes. [A minute and half later, Trebek says there is good news. The judges decided autism is an acceptable answer.] For those who have never seen an episode of "Jeopardy!" it debuted in 1964 and ranked number 45 on TV Guides list of the 60 greatest American television programs of all time this smart persons game show pre Continue reading >>

A sports copy editor from Jersey City, New Jersey... She was a pop music critic when she first appeared on Jeopardy! in 1996, but was offered a spot at her current job as a sports copy editor after a former editor caught her performance on Jeopardy! "Cheerful and somewhat ruthless" is how the Jersey City resident describes her approach to the game. Jeopardy! is a family affair for Claudia; her sister also appeared as a contestant. Claudia serves as president of the Society of American Baseball Research, is an avid cyclist and in her spare time raises money for diabetes research. Hi, I'm Claudia Perry. I first appeared on Jeopardy! in 1997. Watch me participate in Jeopardy!'s Million Dollar Masters tournament. Right now you're watching me on jeopardy.com . I'm a sports copy editor at a newspaper in Newark, New Jersey. What is your fondest memory from your previous appearances on Jeopardy!? Well, um, that's hard to say. There were so many things about it that were really a lot of fun. Um, I think my favorite was my fourth game of my regular season winnings. Uh, I just was totally in the zone, and I just creamed my opponents, and that felt really good. They were nice people, but it was great to win. Did anything unusual happen when you were on the show? Ah, yes! The first show I was on I finished third with a dollar--I won an attractive fax machine, I believe--because they had buzzer problems during my show to the point where they actually stopped tape in the middle of the show and changed everybody's buzzer out because mine wasn't working properly. So the good folks at Jeopardy! called me after that show taped and said that they thought that I really didn't get a fair chance, and so, when I came back, I was a four-time winner, could have been a five-time winner if I had Continue reading >>

Jamaica And Flushing Hospital On A Mission To Beat Diabetes

Jamaica And Flushing Hospital On A Mission To Beat Diabetes

Jamaica and Flushing Hospital On A Mission To Beat Diabetes Last month was National Diabetes Awareness Month and in observance of this important occasion Flushing and Jamaica Hospital Medical Center participated in several events to raise awareness. On November 19th Jamaica Hospital created displays in the main lobby that educated guests and employees about the general facts of the disease, as well as the importance of wound care, skin care and nutrition for diabetics. The displays were fun and interactive. They included games such as Diabetes Jeopardy and other trivia- based activities. Participants were entered to win grand prizes and others won giveaways on the spot. Flushing Hospital Medical Center sponsored a Diabetes Champion Program. It was a full, two day, program in which staff received in-depth education and training in diabetes pathophysiology, blood glucose monitoring, oral anti-diabetic medications, Insulin, medical nutrition, as well as the importance of exercise and patient education methods. A goal of the program was for the Diabetes Champions to continue to develop their skills and work towards becoming Certified Diabetes Educators. The role of a Diabetes Educator is to improve diabetes management among our patients by addressing their questions or concerns regarding the disease. According to the American Diabetes Association, nearly 30 million children and adults in the United States have diabetes. Another 86 million Americans have prediabetes and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes. Jamaica and Flushing Hospital are proud to be a part of the movement that raises awareness and educates the public about this growing and life threatening disease. Both hospitals take their roles very seriously and are planning future initiatives to continue to edu Continue reading >>

Children With Diabetes - Friends For Life 2002 - Friday

Children With Diabetes - Friends For Life 2002 - Friday

After a great breakfast in the banquet area behind the exhibit hall on Friday morning, families headed off to sessions. Teens had a full day, beginning with Pizza, Burgers, and Tacos: Go Figure! to teach them how to eat out, followed by a session on teen advocacy and another session on carb counting. Kids in daycare had the morning inside and enjoyed the Family Activity Village right after lunch (our kids had green dots on their back so we could easily spot them). Teens had the Family Activity Village after the younger kids departed. Friday included a double-length "Dad's Session," giving dads an opportunity to talk about the unique challenges they face as the father of a child with diabetes. John Walsh repeated his well-received pump workshops, one for beginners and one for people experienced with pumping. "Learning About Diabetes Can be Fun" for the little kids included a Diabetes Jeopardy game . Other sessions included managing hypoglycemia, advanced MDI, diabetes in school, and a very well attended session by Dr. Richard Rubin on keeping the family and marriage healthy. With the exhibit hall open only until noon, families made good use of the time to meet with representatives from the 33 companies who came to share their products. Companies large and small were all welcomed with enthusiasm and warmth by our families. Medtronic MiniMed brought Miss America 1999 Nicole Johnson to meet families at their booth. Nicole signed autographs in copies of her book , Living with Diabetes , or a poster, and posed for photos with kids and families . In the photo on the left, she compares finger stick marks with a boy who was at first shy but immediately discovered a unique bond with Nicole. During the afternoon, the Family Activity Village was set up outside the convention cente Continue reading >>
