NANCY: You’re listening to a special episode of the Job Search SOS podcast. I’m Nancy Pinto and this is my husband, business partner and Homer to my Marge, Chris Pinto.

CHRIS: We’re going to let you know which jobs we are working on right now across the US. For more info, you can find the full job descriptions and requirements for all the jobs we’re working on at pintoemployment.com. 

NANCY: The best way to be considered for any position is to apply through our secure website, www.pintoemployment.com. When you submit your resume, we do NOT automatically send it to our client. We don’t do that until after we have a phone conversation with you. 

CHRIS: If you do not match the requirements of a particular position, you can click the big red Submit Resume button on the Home Page so we have you in the system to be considered for future opportunities. Also, check back frequently to see if we have something that your experience does match. 

NANCY:  Disclaimer:  Chris hasn’t read any of the trivia, so he’s learning this stuff along with all of you!

CHRIS:  Some 130 miles south of Las Vegas, along Route 66, you will find the village of Oatman, Arizona, population (as of 2020) 102, NOT including the donkeys. Oatman (named for Olive Oatman, who was kidnapped by the Apaches, sold to the Mojave Indians, and later rescued in a trade in 1857), was once a booming mining town, and settlers brought in burros to help with the work.  When the industry died, almost everybody left, leaving the burros behind.  Their descendants now roam the streets freely.  Oatman has turned into a happening little ghost town, with shops and restaurants and things to do.  The donkeys are harmless!  They trot right up to the tourists, who are allowed to feed them alfalfa cubes.  Please note, you’re not allowed to feed them on the roadway.  It’s ok if they’re off the road or a side alley.  This is to reduce the possibility of accidents.

NANCY:  You can explore miles of underground tunnels in Downtown Los Angeles!  They were originally service tunnels, but then during Prohibition, they became secret hot spots for drinking and entertainment! Clever bar owners set up trap doors and disguises for their speakeasies. If you wanna check them out, go to 320 West Temple Street, which is the Hall of Records. There’s an elevator behind the building which takes you down to the tunnels.  Alternatively, you can go to 222 North Hill Street. There’s another elevator there. Take it and turn right.  You’ll see an escalator. This will take you up to where you can start walking through the tunnels.  Great photo ops but be careful, maybe go with someone, and please read any posted signs, hours and rules!

CHRIS:  As we head into sunnier weather, the BURNING question on everyone’s mind is…who invented suntan lotion?  Well, there’s a nice back and forth between Swiss chemistry student Franz Greiter in 1938, and Miami pharmacist Benjamin Green in 1944.  Franz got the idea when he got sunburned climbing Mount Piz Buin in the Alps.  Benjamin got the idea as an airman in World War II.  He would put red veterinary petrolatum, aka “red vet pet,” on his skin to protect it from the sun’s rays.  Franz gets credit for developing SPF, water resistant lotion, and the first lotions to absorb UVA and UVB light.   He called his invention Gletscher Crème (Glacier Cream) and then he renamed it Piz Buin.  Benjamin’s first lotion was gross until he added cocoa butter and coconut oil, and gets credit for the formula that became Coppertone. 
NANCY:

NANCY:  Where the CNN Center is now, in Atlanta, there once was the world’s first indoor amusement park, called the World of Sid and Marty Krofft.  Sid and Marty were brothers who dreamed up this wacky entertainment complex based on TV shows they had produced together.  It opened on May 26, 1976, but because of where it was located, and because it wasn’t appealing enough (Six Flags was better, cheaper, and you could spend all day there), it closed after 6 months.  Fun fact: one of the attractions, which Ted Turner kept when he bought the property, was a gigantic freestanding escalator.  It goes up 8 stories and is 62 meters (205 feet) long. It’s part of the CNN tour now!

CHRIS: The name Chicago most likely comes from the Algonquin word “shikaakwa,” which could mean either “onion” or “striped skunk,” because the aromas were similar in pungency!  Onions, leeks and ramps were prevalent in the area.  In case you didn’t know, ramps are a type of wild onion that evidently taste like a cross between garlic, onion and scallions.

CHRIS:  The very first Dunkin’ Donuts opened in Quincy, Massachusetts in 1948.  It wasn’t called DD yet, though.  Founder William Rosenberg named it Open Kettle, and they served coffee, pastries and sandwiches.  Two years later he renamed it Dunkin’ Donuts.  In case you were wondering, rumor has it that an Executive Architect came up with the name because he liked the thought of doughnuts being dunked into coffee.  The original location is still in operation today.
NANCY:

Job:  Licensed Customs Broker

NANCY:  Maybe you can help me understand this New Jersey state law:  
Citation 2C:39-13. Unlawful use of body vests: 
A person is guilty of a crime if he uses or wears a body vest while engaged in the commission of, or an attempt to commit, or flight after committing or attempting to commit murder, manslaughter, robbery, sexual assault, burglary, kidnaping, criminal escape or assault under N.J.S.2C:12-1b. Use or wearing a body vest while engaged in the commission of, or an attempt to commit, or flight after committing or attempting to commit a crime of the first degree is a crime of the second degree. Otherwise it is a crime of the third degree.
So, it’s illegal to wear a bulletproof vest while committing a first degree crime. The vest-wearing would be a second degree crime. What’s the third degree shit?

CHRIS:  In upstate New York, near Syracuse, you’ll find Chittenango, the quirky village where L. Frank Baum, author of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, was born. The filming of the movie The Wizard of Oz was filled with tragedy and horror, but the village is very cute.  You can walk along a yellow brick road, educate yourself at the All Things Oz Museum, gamble your paycheck away at the Yellow Brick Road Casino, and if that still isn’t enough, you can engorge yourself at their annual theme festival: the "Oz-stravaganza.”

CHRIS: Let’s go next door to South Carolina!  In 1526, a Spanish explorer named Lucas Vázquez de Ayllón pulled up with a crew and their slaves at Waccamaw Neck, near what is now Georgetown (about an hour up the coast from Charleston). They established the first European colony in North America and named it San Miguel de Guadalupe.  It lasted three whole months in part due to a fever epidemic and a slave revolt.  The escaped Africans joined members of the local indigenous Cofitachequi chiefdom, people of the late Mississippian culture.  

NANCY:

Job: Port Manager

NANCY:  If you lived in or near Pittsburgh Pennsylvania on November 2, 1920, you might have been lucky enough to hear the broadcast of the world’s first ever commercial radio station, KDKA, which is still in service today!  Their first programming was announcing the results of the presidential election.  Chris can you guess what that was? 
CHRIS: 
Location: Harrisburg or York
Job:  International and Domestic Freight Sales Representative

CHRIS:  If you’re on a road trip through Texas, and tired of eating at restaurants, check out the grocery store chain that Epicurious named the best supermarket in the country:  H-E-B.  It supposedly stands for “Here Everything’s Better” but we all know those are the initials of the founder’s son, Howard Edward Butt.  HEB was first established in 1905 by Howard’s mother, Florence Thornton Butt. In Kerrville, Texas, she opened Mrs. C. C. Butt's Staple and Fancy Grocery.  In 1919 she turned the business over to her youngest son, Howard.  In 1922 he renamed the store the C.C. Butt Cash Grocery. In the mid-1930s, Butt again changed the name, to H.E. Butt Grocery Company.  In 1942, he opened the first store under the name H-E-B in San Antonio.  He did a lot more than just change the name, but the history is way too extensive for this podcast, and more than we ever thought we’d learn about ANY supermarket.

NANCY: Depending where you’re traveling to or from at Virginia’s Dulles Airport, you might get the chance to ride in a Mobile Lounge! These rectangular vehicles were made in the 60s to shuttle passengers between the main terminal and jetways.  With increased passenger numbers and lots of construction and transportation development around the airport, they’re not used much anymore.  The inside looks like a subway car but the body is much wider.  
CHRIS: 
Location: Arlington (or, alternatively in DC)
Job: International and Domestic Freight Sales Rep

CHRIS:  During World War II, Boeing built a fake town on 26 acres to hide and disguise a production plant where they manufactured B-17 bombers.  It was built in 1944 and taken down a year after the war.  Any aircraft that flew over the area would just see what appeared to be any old suburban town (fake houses, fake trees, actors, etc.). The ground was made out of burlap, canvas, and chicken wire, and the lawn and trees were made from chicken feathers and spun glass. Buildings were made out of wood and built 4 feet high. 
NANCY:
Location: Seattle, by the airport
