                    Hazelnut

                    Our editors will review what you’ve submitted and determine whether to revise the article.

                    Hazelnut, (genus Corylus), also called filbert, cobnut, or hazel, genus of about 15 species of shrubs and trees in the birch family (Betulaceae) and the edible nuts they produce. The plants are native to the north temperate zone. Several species are of commercial importance for their nuts, and a number are valuable hedgerow and ornamental trees grown for their colourful autumnal foliage. An oil from the European filbert, or common hazel (Corylus avellana), is used in food products, perfumes, and soaps the tree yields a reddish white soft timber, useful for small articles such as tool handles and walking sticks.

                    Hazelnuts are deciduous their leaves are alternate, serrate, obovate, and hairy. The plants range from 3 to 36 metres (10 to 120 feet) in height. In late winter a profusion of yellow male catkins and smaller red-centred clusters of female flowers appear on the same tree. The roundish or oblong brown nut, usually 1 to 4 cm (0.5 to 1.5 inches) long, is partly or wholly enclosed in a husk. The plants are deep-rooted moderately shade-tolerant trees that fruit best in well-drained soil and in full sun.

                    Choice nuts are produced by two Eurasian trees, the European filbert (Corylus avellana) and the giant hazel, or giant filbert (C. maxima), and by hybrids of these species with two American shrubs, the American hazelnut (C. americana) and the beaked hazelnut (C. cornuta). The large cobnut is a variety of the European filbert, and Lambert’s filbert is a variety of the giant filbert. Nuts produced by the Turkish hazelnut (C. colurna) are sold commercially as Constantinople nuts. The former common name for the genus was hazel various species were termed filbert, hazelnut, or cobnut, depending on the relative length of the nut to its husk, but this distinction was found to be misleading.

                    The Jamaican cobnut (Omphalea triandra) has a similar flavour but is an unrelated plant of the family Euphorbiaceae.


                    Hazel Wright Organ History

                    Music from the service was broadcast to the parking lot so those in their cars could hear. Over the years, music became more important in Rev. Schuller’s services. Arvella Schuller, herself an organist, and the first organist of the church, was the driving force behind the high-quality music program and the acquisition of the new organ.

                    According to The Diapason, the official magazine of the American Guild of Organists, Richard Unfried, organist of the Garden Grove Community Church, contacted the firm of Fratelli Ruffatti in 1970 to manufacture a new organ for the Arboretum. The first Fratelli Ruffatti organ, a five-manual instrument of 116 ranks and nearly 7,000 pipes, was installed in the Arboretum in 1977, and inaugurated by famous musician Virgil Fox on April 1, 1977. This was followed by a concert by Richard Unfried, Diane Bish, David Craighead and others.

                    Virgil Fox later made the first “direct-to-disk” recording ever made on a pipe organ, playing the entire program from memory at night, with only a few seconds of silence between pieces. No editing was possible with the technology of the time. Later, the Arboretum’s Fratelli Ruffatti organ was combined with a 1962 Aeolian-Skinner organ to create the Hazel Wright Memorial Organ which was later installed in the Crystal Cathedral.

                    Hazel Wright Memorial Organ

                    The magnificent Hazel Wright Memorial Organ, one of the largest in the world, was inaugurated into the Crystal Cathedral in May 1982. The organ was named for Hazel Wright of Chicago who, along with her husband, was a longtime viewer of Reverend Robert Schuller’s television show “Hour of Power” and who donated the funds for its purchase and upkeep. Originally built for the Richard Neutra-designed modernist Arboretum, the organ was combined with another and installed in Schuller’s Crystal Cathedral.

                    Quick Facts

                    Hazel Wright Organ is a gift from the late Mrs. Hazel Wright of Chicago. Mrs. Wright also provided an endowment for the maintenance of the instrument.

                    • This monumental organ is the largest European-built instrument in America, and is the 6th largest organ in the world.
                    • The original design was by legendary organist Virgil Fox, who died in 1980. Organ Arts of San Francisco, U.S. representatives for Fratelli Ruffatti of Padua, ltaly, handled negotiations with the builders and acted as consultants during installation.
                    • The organ was inaugurated Friday, May 7, 1982 by French Organist Pierre Cochereau from Notre Dame, American Organist Ted Alan Worth, Full Orchestra, and a Gala Festival Choir of thousands.
                    • “Hazel” combines the 1962 Aeolian-Skinner instrument from Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City with the 1977 Ruffatti which was installed in the former Sanctuary of the congregation. A new String Organ and East and West Chamade organs were added by Ruffatti, along with one of the world’s largest drawknob consoles.
                    • The completed organ consists of 302 stops, 293 ranks (or sets of pipes), and 17,106 pipes. In addition to these impressive resources, 31 Walker Digital ranks were added in 1996 to provide added color and to support congregational singing.
                    • The organ is comprised of fourteen divisions which can be played individually or in any combination: 1) The Chancel (North) organ contains the Great, Swell, Choir, Positiv, Solo and Pedal divisions. 2) The South Balcony organ consists of the Gallery Great, Celestial, String, Gallery Solo and Gallery Pedal divisions. 3) The Trompeteria divisions, Gospel and Epistle, are in the East and West pinnacles of the building, separated by over 400 feet
                    • The Chancel (Main) console was built by Fratelli Ruffatti, and is one of the largest drawknob consoles ever built. There are five manuals and a pedal clavier. The resources are controlled by 384 drawknobs, 66 coupler tabs, 115 combination pistons, 55 toe studs, 64 combination memories, 62 miscellaneous controls, four expression pedals and a crescendo pedal capable of four independent settings.
                    • The South Balcony (Gallery) console was built by M. P. Moller, Inc. and installed in January 1990. The complete resources of the organ can be controlled from this console, though not in a manner identical to the main console. There are 282 drawknobs, 65 coupler tabs, 126 combination pistons, 57 toe studs, 64 combination memories, 47 miscellaneous controls, four expression pedals and a crescendo pedal capable of four independent settings.

                    Construction

                    The Hazel Wright Memorial Organ was created by Fratelli Ruffatti based on specifications and design ideas from Arvella Schuller, musician Virgil Fox and later, organist Frederick Swann. This instrument was created from two others: the Ruffatti organ built for and installed in the Arboretum in 1977 and the Aeolian-Skinner organ from Avery Fisher Hall of the Lincoln Center in New York City. The Hazel Wright Organ boasts 287 ranks of pipes and over 16,000 individual pipes, all playable from two five-manual consoles. White oak cases hold the nearly 11,000 pipes in the chancel area. There is a rank of forty-four 32-foot pedal pipes, originally in the organ at Bovard Auditorium at the University of Southern California. The South Balcony divisions of the organ contain 5,000 pipes, and in the East and West Balconies are 549 horizontal trumpet pipes—the largest collection of such pipes in the world. The sound, therefore, pours out from all four sides of the Cathedral, for an incredible and unique acoustic experience.

                    Due to the complexity of the installation, with pipes located at various heights and, in some cases, exposed to direct sunlight, tuning was difficult. Early on, a computerized system was installed by the organ curators, to monitor the temperatures in the various organ locations, thus obtaining vital information for the regular tuning of the pipes. However, after decades of exposure to sunlight, heat, humidity, and in some cases rainwater from leaks in the roof, the organ was in need of urgent repair. Following the acquisition of the cathedral and its 34-acre campus by the Diocese of Orange, Bishop Kevin William Vann, an organist and music lover, launched the project of preserving and restoring the iconic instrument. A farewell fund-raising event was organized: on May 18, 2013, Hector Olivera played the last concert on the instrument prior to restoration, to an audience that nearly filled the building.

                    Restoration

                    An “Organ Restoration Committee” led by Monsignor Arthur Holquin, pastor of the Mission Basilica in San Juan Capistrano, has been designated to oversee the restoration of the organ. The restoration process has included the removal of the organ from the Cathedral, transporting the organ to the Fratelli Ruffatti workshop in Padua, Italy, and restoring and reinstalling the organ in the future Christ Cathedral.

                    In an article penned for “The Diapason” (the official magazine of the American Guild of Organists), Fratelli Ruffatti writes:

                    The sound of the great Cathedral organ will be returned to its original character. Also, the connections between the Arvella Schuller Carillon and the organ console inside the Cathedral will be repaired, so the 52-bell carillon can once again be played from the organ.

                    “It’s an enormous job, a gigantic job,” says organist and musician Swann. “But there are extremely worthy craftsmen doing all this. This instrument, tonally speaking, is one of the most exciting I’ve ever played. Playing it is akin to conducting a world-class orchestra.” Swann states that for such a large console, it is surprisingly easy to play and while it takes time to navigate, the logic of the console’s layout becomes readily apparent.

                    Paul Jacobs, chairman of the organ department at The Juilliard School in New York, who has played famous organs all over the world, says the Hazel Wright Memorial Organ is “a happy marriage between two organ builders. It works as a cohesive whole. This instrument can both whisper and proclaim. And it’s jaw-droppingly impressive to look at. When you hear music come out of those 16,000 pipes it provides a thrill unlike any other.”

                    Bishop Kevin Vann, Diocese of Orange, who signed the contract in Italy to renovate the organ, is a musician himself. His aunt was a Dominican sister and a music teacher, and his great uncle had perfect pitch and tuned pianos. But when Vann wanted piano lessons, his mother didn’t think he’d stick with it—so his grandparents paid for the first year of lessons. His love of music for the glory of God led to his strong support for the renovation project. He also once hosted a vocal warm-up concert at his residence which was later staged for a sold-out crowd in the Freed Theatre on the Christ Cathedral campus.

                    In early 2014, the organ was dismantled as part of Christ Cathedral’s renovation and shipped for restoration to Fratelli Ruffatti workshop in Padua, Italy. In early 2016, the Hazel Wright Organ was shipped back to California where it was temporarily stored in an Irvine warehouse before being reinstalled in Christ Cathedral.

                    Future

                    The organ was designed to support congregation singing, fill the vast spaces of the Cathedral with sound, and be a resource for musical performances. The Roman Catholic Diocese of Orange acknowledges the cultural importance of the organ, and will continue to honor it, not only for its future in Christ Cathedral through liturgical programming, but also in community arts and cultural programming.

                    Hazel Wright Organ is currently undergoing tuning and voicing.

                    A rededication celebration of Hazel Wright Organ will be scheduled for early 2021.


                    The Mysterious Past and Present of Witch Hazel

                    The golden flowers blooming in the dead of winter may have been the first clue to Native Americans that there was something unusual about witch hazel. Beyond being used in the first mass-marketed American-made toiletry (originally called Golden Treasure, then renamed Pond's Extract) -- and being one of the only medicinal plants approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a non-prescription drug ingredient -- witch hazel has been pressed, boiled, and steamed into the service of human health for centuries.

                    The Osage used witch hazel bark to treat skin ulcers and sores the Potawatomi steamed twigs over hot rocks in their sweat lodges to soothe sore muscles the Iroquoi brewed a tea to treat dysentery, colds, and coughs. Since then s tudies have found active compounds in witch hazel such as flavonoids, tannins (hamamelitannin and proanthocyanidins), and volatile oil that give it astringent action to stop bleeding. The same witch hazel bark tea that was sipped to stop internal bleeding was also injected into the rectum to reduce the pain and itching of hemorrhoids.

                    Given its versatility, some believed tea made from witch hazel leaves and bark would heighten occult powers as well. Many modern witches consider witch hazel a magical herb, using it to keep away evil and to heal broken hearts.

                    But it isn't only distillations made from parts of the witch hazel shrub that have mysterious histories.

                    The Mohegans are also believed to be the first to show English settlers how to use Y-shaped witch hazel sticks for dowsing, an ancient method for finding underground water. In fact the name witch hazel is believed to have come from the Middle English "wicke" for "lively" -- the dowsing stick bends toward the ground when water is detected below -- and "wych," an old Anglo-Saxon word for "bend."

                    A lot of people poo-poo the idea that a witch hazel stick can actually detect subterranean water. "They say it's a bunch of witchery," says Curtis Strong, a fourth-generation witch hazel harvester, better known as a "brush cutter." A native of East Hampton, Connecticut, Strong's family has been in the area long enough that his ancestors had land grants from the King of England before America was a nation.

                    "An Old Timer showed me how it works," says the 72-year-old Strong, "and I have used it to find water, 20 to 30 wells, and every one of them had water right where I told them it was going to be."

                    When he's not dowsing for water or enjoying retirement from his career as an electrical engineer and farmer, Curt Strong and his sons can be found -- at least in the late fall and early winter -- in the "boonies" of eastern Connecticut, harvesting the 80 tons of witch hazel they sell each year to American Distilling. The world's largest manufacturer of witch hazel products happens to be right in their hometown of East Hampton.

                    Naturally an American company whose business revolves around a product with the mystical qualities and long history of witch hazel would need a mystique and interesting story of it own. So it is with American Distilling.

                    Baptist minister Thomas Newton Dickinson wanted a new venture after making a fortune supplying uniforms to Yankee troops during the Civil War. People in the area often had a stand of witch hazel in their backyard, and a still to cook it down, bottle it up, and sell it. Figuring a consortium of small operators would add up to a big business, Dickinson in 1866 opened a distillery in Essex, Connecticut.

                    Unfortunately, his sons disliked each other and broke apart the company when their father died and left it to them. Their sons in turn continued the family spat and operated rival Dickinson companies, one in Essex and the other in East Hampton.

                    Forty years ago, Ed Jackowitz first bought the T.N. Dickinson brand and distillery in East Hampton, then bought the competition, E.E. Dickinson, in Essex. Consolidating operations in East Hampton, Jackowitz hired none other than Curt Strong -- wearing his electrical engineer's cap, rather than his brush cutter's -- to automate the plant.

                    Decades on, the automated network is a marvel to behold: The hoppers filled with witch hazel chips conveyers that move the chips to the augurs and into the stills three deep wells from which water used to steam the chips is triple-filtered, removing minerals and anything else there might be down to the microscopic size of a virus tanks that purify and then infuse a 14 percent ethyl (grain) alcohol into the witch hazel distillate as a natural preservative 10 massive 25,000-gallon storage tanks filled with the re-liquified witch hazel that will be shipped in containers ranging from five-gallon jugs to 6,000-gallon tankers to become a key ingredient in cosmetic and first aid products around the world.

                    Bryan Jackowitz, one of the owner's two sons who work with American Distilling and its marketing director, says the company supplies bulk witch hazel that is used as a natural base for toners, cleansers, clarifying products and makeup removers produced by such top-shelf cosmetics companies as Estée Lauder, L'Oreal, Revlon and Neutrogena.

                    Because all of American Distilling's witch hazel is made according to the U.S. Pharmacopeia (USP) standards, products such as Preparation H and TUCKS pads for hemorrhoids, and Playtex personal cleansing wipes highlight the witch hazel they contain. Its own branded products include the yellow-label Dickinson's facial cleansers and toners and blue-label T.N. Dickinson's anti-bacterial spray and cleansing pads.

                    "You hear about all these different extracts, like aloe and chamomile," says Bryan Jackowitz. "People say 'I've heard it's good for me. We'll 'I've heard it's good for me' and documented proof that it actually works for this application, this application, and this application are two different things." He adds, "We have both a history of use and our own analytical chemists and microbiologists that control the quality of our product and continue to extend our understanding of witch hazel -- what makes it tick and how we can make it tick better."

                    With all it has going for it, how is it the liquid with the strange-spooky name is still for so many just an oddity stuck in the corner of someone's bathroom cabinet? "A lot of people view witch hazel as a commodity product," says Jackowitz, "like alcohol or peroxide. Those people buy one bottle a year and it sits under their cabinet or sink, and if they have an issue they use it."

                    On the other hand, he adds, "What we like to say is we have a few people buy a lot." The reason? "Those people are educated on the uses of witch hazel." Touché.


                    Hazelware History

                    Hazelware was a product line of glass tableware that was produced from the 1950’s to the 1970’s in Clarksburg, West Virginia. All of the glassware that shipped bearing the Hazelware name was manufactured at the Clarksburg facility.

                    Hazelware was originally developed and manufactured by the Hazel-Atlas Glass Company. However, due to a complicated series of company mergers, lawsuits, sales, and takeovers, the Hazelware product line was produced by three different companies, as the Clarksburg facility passed between different owners, before being permanently closed in 1987.

                    Here is a brief history of Hazelware as determined from old newspaper articles, court records, company documents, and catalogs.

                    September 1956

                    Continental Can Company, the second largest producer of metal containers in America at the time, acquired the Hazel-Atlas Glass Company, the third largest producer of glass containers in America at the time. Having been unsuccessful at stopping the merger from happening, the government brought an antitrust suit against Continental Can seeking to undo the merger. Hazelware was produced for Continental Can at the Clarksburg facility, while the other Hazel-Atlas plants continued to make jars and bottles.

                    December 1960

                    Continental Can Company won the antitrust lawsuit in a New York district court. The government failed to prove that the merger of a metal container company with a glass container company would reduce competition or customer choice. The government would then appeal to the US Supreme Court.

                    On appeal, the US Supreme Court decided in case 378 US 441, United States v. Continental Can Company, that the purchase of Hazel-Atlas by Continental Can violated section 7 of the Clayton Antitrust Act of 1914. This decision reversed the ruling of the lower court. Plans were already being developed by Continental to sell off the glass packaging business before the ruling was handed down.

                    October 1964

                    To settle the antitrust case, with Justice Department approval, Continental Can Company sold 8 of the former Hazel-Atlas plants, those which were used to produce containers (jars and bottles), to Brockway Glass Company of Brockway, PA. Continental Can retained the Clarksburg, West Virginia plant where they continued to produce the Hazelware product line.

                    In an effort to expand its glass tableware product line, Continental Can Company purchased the Tiffin Art Glass Company of Tiffin, Ohio. For a brief period of time, some Tiffin products were marketed along side Hazelware. They were known during this time as Tiffinware by Continental.

                    January 1969

                    Continental Can Company sold Tiffin Art Glass to Interpace Corporation of New Jersey after less than three years of ownership. A few of the Tiffinware pieces would continue to be sold by Continental Can Company until stock was depleted, but these items were then listed in Hazelware catalogs without the Tiffinware name.

                    September 1972

                    Continental Can Company sold the glass tableware division and the Clarksburg, West Virginia plant, along with the rights to produce Hazelware to Brockway Glass Company. Brockway continued to use the Hazelware name on existing product lines until those products lines ended production. However, Brockway did not apply the Hazelware name to new products that they developed. Eventually the name Hazelware was removed from Brockway catalogs and company documents completely.

                    October 1978

                    Brockway Glass Company announced the closure of the glass tableware division that it had purchased from Continental Can Company just six years earlier. West Virginia state officials began working with Brockway in an attempt to find a buyer for the Clarksburg plant.

                    Brockway Glass Company sold the Clarksburg, WV plant to Anchor Hocking Corporation, of Lancaster, Ohio. Anchor Hocking agreed to purchase the facility only after multiple government grants and tax breaks were approved for modernization of the facility. Anchor Hocking did not manufacture any of the Hazelware product lines.

                    Anchor Hocking was taken over by The Newell Corporation of Freeport, Illinois. Newell began restructuring and cost cutting measures at Anchor Hocking, which resulted in the permanent closure of the Clarksburg plant in November of the same year. The state of West Virginia sued Newell, but the plant remained closed.


                    Mission / History

                    The Mission of the Hazel Hawkins Hospital Foundation is:

                    1. To provide financial resources to support the health care activities of the San Benito Health Care District/Hazel Hawkins Memorial Hospital.
                    2. To create a broad range of charitable giving opportunities for individual and family donors, business and corporate entities and other philanthropic organizations.
                    3. To insure success by initiating and maintaining active participation on the part of all Foundation Trustees.

                    Foundation History

                    The Hazel Hawkins Hospital Foundation, a California non-profit organization, was established in 1978 to generate financial resources that can support the care that is provided by the Hospital and the Health District. The Foundation Board of Trustees oversees the management of the Foundation’s assets and assures contributions are used appropriately.

                    Over the past 10 years hospitals and medical providers have been receiving less reimbursement than what it costs to provide these services. This reality creates a critical gap that must be filled in other ways.

                    Your Gifts at Work

                    The Foundation has secured and distributed over twelve million dollars in charitable gifts since its inception. The Foundation receives contributions from individuals, corporations, foundations and other donors that are used for facility improvements, programs, equipment purchases, scholarships and other critical needs.

                    The Foundation’s current campaign is “Mabie Makeover” – adding a little more sparkle to our 5-star Skilled Nursing Facilities.

                    Hazel Hawkins Hospital’s Mabie Northside is a 5-Star-Rated Skilled Nursing Facility* with an average daily census of 50 patients plus visitors. Many residents frequently enjoy getting out of their rooms to sit and visit in the lobby, but when this facility was built, the front was not designed to be a lobby.

                    Thanks to our donors, the Foundation funded the painting of the rooms that were not covered by insurance when the facility flooded in December 2019. This allowed every patient to move back to a newly refurbished room. The Foundation funds were also used for the new nurses’ station, new furniture, and new donor plaques and artwork in the lobby area.

                    The next phase of the campaign will be the exterior of Mabie Northside to add additional outdoor seating area with decomposed granite replacing some of the lawn, new furniture, paint, planters and updated light fixtures. This will be a great enhancement to this facility that is consistently at capacity, and is also located on a major thoroughfare in Hollister directly across from Hazel Hawkins Hospital. The final phase will raise funds to be used for upgrades and enhancements to Mabie Southside.

                    Previous fundraising campaigns have contributed to the following accomplishments:

                    S&P 500 Price to Earnings Ratio Sources and Methodology

                    The monthly S&P earnings and index averages are sourced from Robert Shiller's compilation of index statistics. Shiller has data back to 1871, even though the S&P 500 in its current form started in 1957 (with a smaller index existing to 1926.) Data before 1926 comes from the Cowles datasets.

                    The recession indicators (the grey shading in the S&P PE graph) are from the National Bureau of Economic Research's "peak-to-trough" recession measure. Note that they may be revised in the future.

                    The index price is the monthly average closing price. Earnings is the trailing twelve-month earnings for the index, as compiled by Shiller. Where there is no earnings data, the tool uses the last seen earnings (so earnings may be duplicated from the previous quarter for the most recent data.).

                    One last warning: data will be revised without warning. When earnings data is back-filled, the ratio will move materially.
