1918: The Food Ad­min­is­tra­tion an­nounced 12 new reg­u­la­tions re­gard­ing pub­lic eat­ing houses set to go into ef­fect Oct. 20, with lo­cal en­force­ment han­dled by county food ad­min­is­tra­tor G. Wil­liam Mcewan. Some of the stricter rules stated that no pub­lic eat­ing place should al­low: bread to be brought to a ta­ble un­til af­ter the first course is served; more than one kind of meat per per­son per meal; ba­con to be served as a gar­nish; more than one-half ounce of but­ter to be served to one per­son per meal; the use of a sugar bowl on a ta­ble of counter; any food to be burned.

1968: David J. Dono­van, shop stew­ard for Lo­cal 190 of the La­bor­ers Union at the Al­bany Land­fill de­nied re­ports that he had been of­fered $1,000 by Gus T. Fucci to de­stroy ma­chin­ery and set fires on one of Capi­tol Di­vi­sion Dis­posal’s land­fill sites. The union of­fi­cer said, “The money was of­fered to set up an ap­point­ment, not to set fires or de­stroy ma­chin­ery.” Speak­ing at a press con­fer­ence, Daniel N. Sil­ver­man, pres­i­dent of the dis­posal com­pany, said em­ploy­ees had come for­ward vol­un­tar­ily to give him in­for­ma­tion about Fucci.

1993: As the “Good Morn­ing Amer­ica” cam­eras rolled, a trio of mu­si­cians at Rus­sell Sage took their seats — and then ad­justed their elec­trode-rich head­bands. They were go­ing to use their brain waves to mod­u­late mu­sic pro­grammed into a com­puter. The demon­stra­tion was the re­sult of a col­lab­o­ra­tion be­tween Mar­ion Teren­zio, a pro­fes­sor of psy­chol­ogy and mu­sic ther­apy at Rus­sell Sage, and An­drew Junker, of Yel­low Springs, Ohio, who was do­ing re­search on ways to use thought com­mands to con­trol com­put­ers. To­gether they were set­ting up a re­search ef­fort at Rus­sell Sage de­signed to de­ter­mine if Junker’s sys­tem could be used for mu­sic ther­apy.
