Back in the days of three-martini lunches, big corporations presented eye-poppingly lavish, peppy musicals to introduce their new products and fire up their distributors and salesmen. The budget for one of these industrial musicals could be bigger than the cost of a Broadway show. Rah-rah lyrics, gorgeous production values — and maybe a few martinis, too — got the besuited warriors pumped up to go out and sell toilets, batteries, Studebakers. Native Chicagoan Sid Siegel, a product of Sullivan High School and Roosevelt University, was dubbed the George Gershwin of the genre by former Sun-Times writer Dave Hoekstra. David Letterman played one of his songs on his TV show. He churned out more than 1,200 radio and TV commercials and did music and lyrics for more than 250 industrial shows, with one of them, titled “The Bathrooms Are Coming,” a kitschy high point. Written for American Standard bathroom fixtures, “Bathrooms” is “the gateway drug that makes people want to learn more about the strange world of ‘industrials,’ ” according to Steve Young, a former writer for the Letterman show who featured Mr.... When he interviewed Mr. Siegel, then 87 and living in Buffalo Grove, Young found a human player piano. Young discovered a souvenir LP of “The Bathrooms Are Coming” while looking for gems for.
Just recently, the clock that hung in the First Congregation Sons of Israel sanctuary was broken while the batteries were being changed. Everyone who attended services at the synagogue was aware of the clock, having checked it more than once at each service attended. However, no one had looked closely at the clock, or not closely enough to know who had presented it to the synagogue and for what purpose. When looking to find a clock repair shop, I noticed hand lettering and Hebrew numerals in calligraphy and that the clock was a gift in memory of Saul and Sarah Snyder from their four children, all of whom are now deceased. One of the children, Rita Snyder Kass, was a very active member of the congregation and the St. Augustine community, along with her husband, Jerry Kass. They, like all of us, knew a clock was on the wall in the building but were not aware of its connection to their family. After repair was done to the clock, Barry Kass and Robin Kass Burchfield came to rehang it and discuss the Snyders’ role in the historic congregation.
Sustainable contrast with pure whites and very dark blacks also contribute to the impression that the Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro has one of the best tablet displays in its class. It holds a battery with impressive 10,200 mAh, which is sufficient for 18 hours of watching video, according to Lenovo. Finally, the tablet has a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera, which seem average based on our time with the tablet. The device also ran Android well in our time with it, thanks to its Intel Atom x5-Z8500 chipset (the Surface 3 has a different, but mostly similar processor), a quad-core platform running a 2. 24 GHz clock. The tablet also has 2 GB of RAM and 32 or 64GB of memory storage (and can be expanded via microSD). Along with its bigger battery, this chipset contributes to the tablet’s impressive autonomy. Lenovo Yoga Tab 3 Pro is set to ship in November, bearing the price tag of $499 for the 32GB version. Lenovo also revealed two mid-range tablets of the same series in Berlin: the 8-inch Yoga Tab 3 and the 10. 1-inch Yoga Tab 3. These differ from the Pro version in that both.
