That’s News to you answers

Here are the answers to this week’s quiz:

1. B. It is a psychological condition in which people are abruptly awakened from sleep by imaginary loud noises or blasts. If you’ve never heard of “exploding head syndrome,” or EHS, don’t worry. Neither have most doctors, said Brian Sharpless, the WSU assistant professor of psychology who led the study published recently in the Journal of Sleep Research. The disorder, which is noted in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, was first recognized about 130 years ago, when it was characterized as “sensory discharges,” and later, when it was described as “snapping of the brain.”

2. D. Rolling Stone magazine retracted its controversial story. Writer Sabrina Rubin Erdely issued an apology after Columbia University’s investigation called Rolling Stone’s article and what happened after its publication “a story of journalistic failure that was avoidable.”

3. D. Malia Obama’s driving lessons were provided by the U.S. Secret Service.

4. A. The policy banned workers convicted of felonies from working on the project. Iron Workers Local Union 377 spoke out against the policy, questioning why workers with recent felony convictions should be shut out from work on Apple’s spaceship-themed campus, a massive undertaking in Cupertino, California, that is expected to yield thousands of construction jobs. The company announced later in the week that it would not exclude workers with felony convictions.

5. A. The new piece of artwork is called “Dance of the Redband,” by Ken Spiering, a local artist. The traffic triangle is at the intersection of Division Street and Spokane Falls Boulevard.
