1973

Answer: The first handheld cellular phone call was made on April 3, 1973, by Motorola engineer Martin Cooper from Sixth Avenue in New York while walking between 53rd and 54th streets. Cooper hoisted the 2 1/2-pound prototype to his ear and called a rival, Joel Engel of Bell Laboratories at AT&T, to declare that his Motorola team had devised a functional portable phone. “There was silence at the other end of the line,” Cooper recalled to Bloomberg in 2015. The clunky phone, almost as big as a shoe box, allowed a user to talk for 35 minutes and required 10 hours to recharge, according to Wired magazine.

WEST VIRGINIA

Answer: The good news is that tobacco smoking is declining globally, including in the United States. The bad news is that about 15.1% of the adults in this country still smoke regularly. West Virginia leads all states in the percentage of adults who still smoke cigarettes, according to state-by-state figures released by the CDC. With 26.0% of adults smoking, West Virginia is ahead of second-place Kentucky (24.6% smokers) and third-place Louisiana (23.1% smokers). Utah holds its place as the state with the lowest adult smoking rate: 8.9%. Source: CDC.gov

What mineral is often called fool's gold?

Pyrite

PHKRAUSE

 the  answer  is   PYRITE

dgrimm60

Answer: "Fool's gold" is a common nickname for pyrite. Pyrite may be shiny and brass-colored, but any miner will tell you, it is not as good as gold. Pyrite received that nickname because it is worth virtually nothing, but has an appearance that "fools" people into believing that it is gold. The nickname "fool's gold" has long been used by gold buyers and prospectors, who were amused by excited people who thought they had found gold. Pyrite contains sulfur and iron. During World War II it was mined to produce sulfuric acid, an industrial chemical. Today, it is used in car batteries, appliances, jewelry, and machinery.
