A Unique Canadian Treasure

Here is a home, a detachment of repose, a depot for deceased members of the North West Mounted Police (NWMP), the Royal North West Mounted Police (RNWMP) and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

Members of the Force, RCMP Vets, family and friends sense an obligation to protect and care for the graves of deceased members.

The website consists of three main parts the website itself, a database and a blog. Each of these can be navigated by using the tabs to the left.

Distinct and unique within the police community, this website consists of over 420 web pages and over 3400 blog entries which focus on Canadian history through stories and photographs of deceased members of the RCMP. Their contributions to the early settlement of Canada and the impact of their achievements can be traced back to Confederation days.

The website lists a catalog of monuments which have been erected in various parts of Canada to commemorate RCMP members killed in the line of duty. The fact that a monument was built by a community of people for a deceased Canadian police officer speaks highly about the overall trust which Canadians have in the RCMP.

Several hundred RCMP lost their lives in the North West Rebellion (1885), South Africa, WWI & WWII. Many RCMP members are buried in foreign lands, but many more were never recovered. All their names are etched on War Memorials which stand in cemeteries all over the world.

In the database, one will find hundreds of references to the RCMP who were called to WWI including their Canadian Expeditionary Force Attestation Papers, Military Records, photos of their graves and Monuments.

Hundreds of Canadian geographical landmarks are linked to the names of pioneer RCMP deceased members.

Congressman Mistakes U.S. Officials For Indian Ones

R ep. Curt Clawson, a freshman Republican congressman from Florida, mistook two senior U.S. officials for representatives of the Indian government during a House hearing on Friday.

“I am familiar with your country, I love your country,” Clawson said to Nisha Biswal and Arun Kumar, addressing fellow U.S. citizens who hold high-ranking positions in the State Department and Commerce Department, respectively.

“Just as your capital is welcome here to produce good-paying jobs in the U.S., I’d like our capital to be welcome there,” he told Biswal and Kumar. “I ask cooperation and commitment and priority from your government in so doing. Can I have that?”

After a lingering silence, Clawson smiles slowly. Kumar appears to grin, while Biswal echoes Clawson’s sentiment, informing him it should probably be directed to the Indian government. It’s unclear whether Clawson realized his error.

“Happy Birthday to You”

On March 4, 1924, the song and melody of “Happy Birthday to You” were printed in a songbook. One of the world’s most famous songs, it has been the center of controversy over ownership and copyright status for years.

According to tradition, the tune we all know today as “Happy Birthday” was originally written in the late 1800s as “Good Morning to All.” Sisters Patty and Mildred Hill claimed they wrote the song for kindergarteners in Louisville, Kentucky.

The sisters wanted to create a song that would be easy for the children to sing. Reportedly, they may have taken some of the tune and lyrical ideas from other existing songs, such as “Happy Greetings to All” “Good Night to You All,” “A Happy New Year to All,” and “A Happy Greeting to All.”

US #2395 from the 1988 Special Occasions set.

The sisters’ song went “Good morning to you, Good morning to you, Good morning, dear children, Good morning to all.” The sisters first published the tune in their songbook, Song Stories for Kindergarten in 1893. It’s likely that the class may have added in “Happy Birthday” to the tune to celebrate the childrens’ birthdays, which may have led to later printings including “Happy Birthday.”

US #3558 was issued in 2002.

In the coming years, versions of the song appeared in various books, some which included the “Happy Birthday” lyrics in a later verse, though it’s unknown who actually wrote them. Then on March 4, 1924, Claydon Sunny printed the melody and “Happy Birthday” lyrics together in a songbook. This was reportedly at the request of Jessica Hill, sister of Patty and Mildred.

US #3695 was issued later in 2002 to meet the increased postal rate.

The “Happy Birthday” song quickly caught on and soon it was being used without royalties. In 1931, it was in the Broadway musical The Band Wagon. Western Union also used it in their first singing telegram, leading Jessica to campaign for the song to be copyrighted. In 1934, she managed to secure a copyright for “Happy Birthday” because of its similarities to “Good Morning to All.” The following year, several piano arrangements and an unused verse of “Happy Birthday to You” were copyrighted by the Summy Company, crediting Preston Ware Orem for the piano arrangements and Mrs. R.R. Forman for the lyrics. However, his claim was later found to be baseless.

US #4079 was issued in 2006 for another rate increase.

The Hill family had the copyright for the song if it was used for profit through 1991. This was then extended to 2030. In 1988, Warner Music assumed ownership of the copyright and received $2 million in royalties every year for it. They claimed copyright for the song anytime it was used in film, television, radio, and anywhere in the public where the majority of the people singing weren’t family or friends.

US #4079 – Colorano Silk Cachet First Day Cover

Over the years, some argued the validity of the copyright, particularly the fact that it’s unknown who wrote the lyrics to “Happy Birthday.” Beginning in 2010, a campaign was launched to disprove the Hills’s ownership of the melody. In 2013, a filmmaker took Warner Music to court over the song. Then in 2015, a judge ruled that the song wasn’t under copyright, and royalties wouldn’t need to be paid to Warner Music anymore. This made the song part of the public domain.

According to the Guinness Book of World Records, “Happy Birthday to You” is the most popular song in the English language.

Background

Stroke is a common and debilitating neurological disorder having a negative impact on quality of life.

Objectives

We aimed to compare differences in participation in work and leisure activities between patients with and without a self-reported stroke at the national level in France.

Methods

This study used cross-sectional data from the Disability Health Survey that was administered in people's homes (DHH) in 2008 and in institutions (DHI) in 2009. Stroke history and levels of participation in work and leisure activities were collected by interviews. The levels of participation in these activities were compared between participants with and without a history of stroke.

Results

Among the 33,785 interviewed participants, 1725 reported a history of stroke. After weighting, this represented a mean (SD) of 766,641 (36,650) people among 49 million adults living in France. After adjustment, as compared with people without stroke, those with stroke were less likely to work (odds ratio 0.19 [95% confidence interval 0.13–0.27]), use the telephone (0.21 [0.17–0.25]) and drive (0.25 [0.21–0.32]). In the age group 19–59 years, as compared with people without stroke, those with stroke less frequently worked (35.9% vs. 72.2%), drove (54.3% vs. 81.3%) and participated in sports (26.6% vs. 55.8%).

Conclusions

Overall, our study indicates that people with a history of stroke report more difficulties in participating in work and leisure activities than those without a history of stroke.
