SON OF SAM

Answer: On this day in 1977, 24-year-old postal employee David Berkowitz is arrested and charged with being the “Son of Sam,” the serial killer who terrorized New York City for more than a year, killing six young people and wounding seven others with a .44-caliber revolver. The killing spree terrorized New Yorkers and achieved worldwide notoriety. After his arrest, Berkowitz claimed that demons and a black Labrador retriever owned by a neighbor named Sam had ordered him to murder attractive young women. Berkowitz has been incarcerated since his arrest and is serving six consecutive life sentences.

Who coined the word "nerd"?

Dr Seuss

DR. SEUSS

dgrimm60

Answer: Nerd is a descriptive term, often used to describe a person that is overly intellectual, obsessive, or lacking social skills. The word nerd was first used in the 1950 Dr. Seuss book "If I Ran the Zoo", in which a nerd was one of the many oddly named creatures in the titular zoo. The slang meaning of the term dates to the next year, 1951, when Newsweek magazine reported on its popular use as a synonym for "drip" or "square" in Detroit, Michigan. By the early 1960s, usage of the term had spread throughout the United States, and even as far as Scotland.

What is the common name for the star Sirius?

Dog Star

PHKRAUSE

the answer  is  DOG STAR

dgrimm60

Answer: Sirius is the brightest star in the night sky. Sirius is almost twice as bright as Canopus, the next brightest star. Sirius appears bright because of its intrinsic luminosity and its proximity to the Solar System. Sirius is gradually moving closer to the Solar System, so it will slightly increase in brightness over the next 60,000 years. Sirius is sometimes called the "Dog Star", reflecting its prominence in its constellation, Canis Major (the Greater Dog). Most people in the Northern Hemisphere notice Sirius in the southeast – south – or southwest on evenings from winter to mid-spring.

ABBEY ROAD

Answer: Abbey Road is the eleventh studio album by the Beatles, released in 1969. The front cover design was a photograph of the group on a zebra crossing based on ideas that McCartney had sketched and taken on Abbey Road. Photographer Iain Macmillan was given only 10 minutes to take the photo while he stood on a step-ladder and a policeman held up traffic behind the camera. Macmillan took six photographs, which McCartney examined with a magnifying glass before deciding which would be used on the album sleeve. In the image selected by McCartney, the group walk across the street in single file from left to right, with Lennon leading, followed by Starr, McCartney, and Harrison.
