Greetings Infomaniacs,

It has finally cooled off a bit after some hot, humid weather 
around here. The only thing I like to do on such sticky days 
is float in the pool. Luckily there is a pool by my house 
that offers a large swimming pool, a lazy river, and three 
water slides. It's a great place to go to cool off and enjoy 
the summertime. Unfortunately, I don't get there as much 
as I'd like since I work full-time, but I have saved up my 
vacation days so I can take one here and there. It's good 
to have them especially since most of my friends are teachers 
and are off all summer!

Enjoy!
Melissa

                    TODAY'S MYSTERY QUOTE 

QUOTE: "If you want to learn to swim jump into the water.  
On dry land no frame of mind is ever going to help you."

HINT: (1940-1973), American-born martial artist, philosopher, 
instructor, and martial arts actor

                        RANDOM TIDBITS 

Swimming as an organized activity goes back as far as 2500 
B.C. in ancient Egypt and later in ancient Greece, Rome, 
and Assyria. In Rome and Greece, swimming was part of the 
education of elementary age boys and the Romans built the 
first swimming pools (separate from bathing pools). The 
first heated swimming pool was built by Gaius Maecenas of 
Rome in the first century BC. 

                             *** 

Ancient civilizations left ample evidence of their swimming 
abilities. Bas-relief artwork in an Egyptian tomb from 
around 2,000 B.C. shows an overarm stroke like the front 
crawl. The Assyrians showed an early breaststroke in their 
stone carvings. The Hittites, the Minoans, and other early 
civilizations left drawings of swimming and diving skills.

                             *** 

The first municipal pool in the U.S. was built in Brookline, 
Mass., in 1887. Soon after that, New York City built public 
facilities, then called "baths."

In 1928, David Armbruster first filmed swimmers under water 
to study strokes. The Japanese also photographed and 
studied world-class athletes, using their research to 
produce a swim team that dominated the 1932 Olympic Games. 
This marked the beginning of research into stroke mechanics.

                             *** 
During the Middle Ages, people feared water because they 
thought it contained diseases. Swimming was not again 
appreciated until the nineteenth century when it became 
popular in England. People felt they could finally trust 
the water to be free of disease.

                             *** 

In 1946 war rationing of material inspired the invention 
of the two piece bathing suite, called a "bikini." It was 
named for a U.S. nuclear testing site in the South Pacific.
