Who is honored with the most stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame?

Gene Autry

Answer: Gene Autry is the only person to be awarded stars in the five fields recognized on the Walk of Fame: film, TV, radio, live performance and music. During his lifetime, Autry emerged as both a top money-making entertainer and a powerful businessman. As his 1998 obituary said, "He was enormously successful at almost anything he tried—radio, records, songwriting, television, real estate and business, as well as movies and museums." The late Bob Hope and the late romantic crooner Tony Martin are next with four stars each. Thirty-three people, including Frank Sinatra, Danny Kaye and Jack Benny, have been awarded stars in three fields.

Which is not part of the Hershey's family of products?

Answer: Hershey’s is America’s longest-lived and inarguably most successful candy company. Although Hershey’s chocolate bars are widely recognized, many of their other signature sweets are perhaps not as recognizable. Jolly Rancher, Bubble Yum, Good & Plenty, Ice Breakers, Kit Kat, York Peppermint Pattie, and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups are just a few of the products owned by The Hershey Company. However, M&M's are not owned by Hershey. M&M's are owned by Mars Incorporated, a leading global food company.

The record for “most-liked tweet” was recently broken on whose Twitter account?

Chadwick Boseman

Answer: The most liked tweet has over 7.7 million likes and was tweeted from the account of actor Chadwick Boseman announcing his death.

Twitter confirmed the accolade on its own verified account last week stating: "Most liked Tweet ever. A tribute fit for a King. #WakandaForever."

Which U.S. President was known as "The Great Communicator"?

Ronald Reagan

Answer: Ronald Reagan was nicknamed "The Great Communicator", and has been deemed as one of the best public speakers in American history. His unparalleled communication skills began as a radio broadcaster and developed during his time as a Hollywood actor. Before speeches, he would often drink hot water to relax his vocal chords, a trick he adopted on the advice of his friend Frank Sinatra. In his 1989 farewell address President Reagan said, "I won the nickname the great communicator. But I never thought it was my style that made a difference—it was the content. I wasn't a great communicator, but I communicated great things."

"Semper Paratus" is the motto of which branch of the U.S. military?

The Coast Guard

Answer: Semper Paratus is a Latin phrase, meaning "Always Ready". It is best known as the official motto of the United States Coast Guard. A 1928 song of the same name is also used as the U.S. Coast Guard's official march. The Coast Guard operates under the U.S. Department of Homeland Security during peacetime, and can be transferred to the U.S. Department of the Navy by the President at any time, or by the U.S. Congress during times of war. Created by Congress in 1790 at the request of Alexander Hamilton as the Revenue-Marine, it is the oldest continuous seagoing service of the United States.

After finally settling for “Snoopy”, Charles Schultz originally wanted his famous beagle to be called what?

Sniffy

Answer: Snoopy was one of Charles Schulz’s earliest Peanuts characters, appearing for the first time on October 4, 1950, just two days after the comic strip’s debut. Schulz loosely based Snoopy on a black-and-white dog he had as a teenager. The cartoonist originally planned to call his cartoon dog Sniffy, but shortly before the comic strip launched Schulz was passing a newsstand and noticed a comic magazine featuring a dog with the same name. Finding himself in need of a new name, Schulz remembered his mother’s suggestion that the family should name their next dog “Snoopy.”
