What well-known patriotic song features the line “From sea to shining sea”?

  • "God Bless America"
  • "This Land Is Your Land"
  • "America the Beautiful"
  • "Yankee Doodle"

Question:

Answer: "America the Beautiful" is an American patriotic song. Katharine Bates originally wrote the words as a poem, "Pikes Peak", first published in the Fourth of July edition of the church periodical The Congregationalist in 1895. At various times, there have been efforts to give "America the Beautiful" legal status either as a national hymn or as a national anthem equal to, or in place of, "The Star-Spangled Banner", but so far this has not succeeded. "From sea to shining sea", is an American idiom meaning "from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean".

Olympic champion Eliud Kipchoge held off the challenge of debutant Guye Adola to win the Berlin Marathon on Sunday.

The Kenyan won in 2 hours, 3 minutes, 32 seconds, missing out on the world record by 35 seconds in wet conditions.

Compatriot Dennis Kimetto ran 2:02:57 on the same course in 2014.

"The conditions weren’t ideal. It rained. Luckily there wasn’t too much wind. In the end I’m just happy to have won against Adola," Kipchoge said.

Adola of Ethiopia finished 14 seconds behind, and surprised by pushing Kipchoge hardest. Defending champion Kenenisa Bekele fell behind and then former world-record holder Wilson Kipsang dropped out.

"That’s sport," said Kipchoge, who won the Berlin Marathon in 2015 despite flapping insoles in his shoes.

Gladys Cherono won the women’s race in 2:20:23, ahead of Ethiopia’s Ruti Aga and fellow Kenyan Valary Ayabei.

Former winners Kipchoge, Bekele and Kipsang — the world’s three strongest marathon runners with personal bests all under 2:03:30 — were targeting Dennis Kimetto’s mark before the race but were hampered by misty drizzle.

The favorites all passed the halfway mark in 1:01:29, accompanied by Adola and Vincent Kiproto, but Bekele looked to be in trouble and fell out of contention shortly afterward.

Kipsang suddenly stopped at the 30-kilometer mark, leaving Kipchoge and Adola to duel it out.

The debutant made his move with around five kilometers remaining, but Kipchoge stayed on his tail and drew level by the 40-kilometer mark before pulling away for the victory.

Adola’s time of 02:03:46 was the fastest debut on a record-eligible course.

While the drizzle dampened the top three’s hopes of breaking the record, it provided relief for the majority of the 43,000 runners with more modest ambitions.

Several had their own records to beat, including Bernardo Castro Dominguez of Ireland, who wanted to run the men’s fastest marathon dressed as a lucha libre wrestler; Jennifer McBain of Britain who dressed as a hot dog to beat the women’s record for a marathon dressed as a fast food item; and Patrick Kennedy of Britain, who dressed as a snowboarder for charity.

The 52-year-old Kennedy ran the London Marathon while playing a mandolin.

"I thought this would be easier because I don’t have to play the mandolin," Kennedy said of his 11th marathon. "Ich bin ein snowboarder."

The average, healthy human heart pumps about 70 milliliters of blood with each heartbeat. It takes a single, individual blood cell about 60 seconds to make a full circuit around the body. That’s impressive, considering there are about 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body. A healthy human heart beats an average of 100,000 times each day. Blood cells are always red, never blue, as some may think. Source: Science-Facts.com

  • "Who defeated the New York Jets in the first televised game of Monday Night Football on ABC on this day in 1970?"

    Pittsburgh Steelers
    Cleveland Browns – answer
    Dallas Cowboys
    Miami Dolphins

Answer: The very first Monday Night Football game aired 47 years ago today. On September 21, 1970, the Cleveland Browns defeated star quarterback Joe Namath and the New York Jets 31-21 as ABC’s Monday Night Football made its prime time debut. Producer Roone Arledge changed the way the NFL was presented on television that season with the three-man booth team of Keith Jackson, Don Meredith and Howard Cosell, and by implementing twice the number of cameras normally used during game telecasts, as well as instant replays and extensive graphics.

Raw video released showing woman found dead in Rosemont hotel freezer | abc7chicago.com

ROSEMONT, Ill. (WLS) —

Eight snippets of raw surveillance video were released Friday afternoon showing 19-year-old Kenneka Jenkins walking the halls of a Rosemont hotel more than a day before she was found dead in a basement freezer.

The videos, released by Rosemont police, do not show Jenkins walking into the walk-in freezer at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, but do show her in a kitchen alone and then walking out of frame. She appears disoriented and stumbling in the videos.

"There is no camera that shows her physically entering the freezing and no camera angle that is missing or was broken," Rosemont police said in an email late Friday.

WATCH: HOTEL VIDEOS OF KENNEKA JENKINS
INVESTIGATION CONTINUES

Police have told ABC7 from the beginning of their investigation they do not suspect any foul play is involved in the young woman’s death.

Regardless, a total of 25 people were interviewed by police, including eight on Friday, 16 of whom were inside the hotel room during the party, according to a detailed press release from Rosemont police late Friday. Police believe at least 31 people were in the room that night and were still trying to locate 15 of them, working with Chicago police to do so.

"The scene of the incident was processed by evidence technicians to include high precision 3D measurement imaging and crime scene analysis. Our detectives also have created video recordings of the scene to include the believed path Kenneka Jenkins took from the hotel room to the freezer, supported by surveillance video," the Rosemont press release said.

EMBED More News Videos

Hotel surveillance video was released Sept. 15, 2017 showing Kenneka Jenkins before she was found dead in a Rosemont hotel freezer.

Two video recordings from social media have also been reviewed and sent to a private lab to be enhanced for further examination, the results of which are expected in two weeks. Also, police have sent a preservation of evidence order to Facebook and issued two search warrants for Facebook accounts.

A man and woman checked into the hotel room on Sept. 7 using a stolen credit card obtained via identity theft, Rosemont police said.

At about 1:15 a.m. Saturday, Jenkins appears fine walking into the hotel with friends to attend a party on the ninth floor. At about 3:30 a.m., she is seen in other videos getting off an elevator, bumping into walls and struggling to stay upright.

Police said that they have handed over the hotel video to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office, which has not yet ruled on the cause and manner of her death. The office has said they are awaiting toxicology results.

FAMILY ASKS QUESTIONS

Less than an hour before the videos were released to the media, Jenkins’ mother, Teresa Martin, and her attorneys – Larry Rogers, Jr. and Sam Adams, Jr. – held a press conference imploring the hotel and authorities to release all of the video. They said they plan to do an independent investigation.

Martin and her attorneys were also given snippets of the video, but were frustrated that none show her walking into the freezer. They said they only want to know what happened to Jenkins.

"Serious questions remain as to how she ended up in a Crowne Plaza Hotel freezer and why it took a day and a half for the hotel to find Kenneka," Rogers said.

The hotel has 47 cameras that captured about 36 hours of surveillance video footage.

WATCH SURVEILLANCE VIDEO

Her body was discovered in a basement walk-in freezer early Sunday morning, roughly 24 hours after she was last seen at the party. Drugs and alcohol were present at the party, police said.

Andrew Holmes, a community activist in Chicago who viewed the footage Thursday, said the young woman was alone the whole time she was in the basement and may have been trying to get out. He said she may have thought the walk-in freezer was an exit.

"From me looking at the video, she was trying to find her way back upstairs to the lobby and she was checking the doors just trying to find her way upstairs," Holmes said.

Protesters have been around the Crown Plaza Hotel over the last two days, demanding more transparency from police in their investigation into the 19-year-old’s death. Many said they suspect a cover up.

The hotel has offered to pay for Jenkins’ funeral expenses, but it was immediately unknown if the family has accepted the offer.
