The certification of the World Health Organization's Southeast Asia
 region as polio-free has led to many stories in the media
 highlighting Rotary's instrumental role in achieving this important milestone.
 General Secretary John Hewko joined Rotary member Devin Thorpe 
last week in a live interview to discuss how we will eradicate polio
 in the three countries where it still exists:
 Afghanistan, Nigeria, and Pakistan

the Prank is on Gordon

A witch doctor kept the members of his tribe in subjugation 
by means of his powerful magic
. Whenever one of the tribe’s people tried to revolt against the tyrant,
 he uttered a magic incantation
 and turned the person into an apple.

One night, a group of the witch doctor’s subjects sneaked into his hut,
 opened his book of magic and learned the apple incantation.
 When the doctor awoke
, the people recited the magic phrases
 and turned him into an apple.

But the magic book warned that if the apple ever dried out 
and changed significantly in weight,
 it would change back to the person under the spell.
 Not wishing for the doctor’s revenge,
 every day the tribe’s people would place the apple
 on a scale to make sure its weight remained the same.

Moral: A weigh a day keeps the doctor an apple
