Trivia and Brooklyn College in the news

Friday night the weekend events will be posted.

Next week we will have photos of the Activity Fair which is dozens of clubs and you may see a class mate you know. Strong rumors are the college bookstore will close. Probably it could not compete with online sites. Hillel Place by the college used to have 2 book stores as did Kings Plaza in the past. This half of Brooklyn has no bookstores not including specialty niches such as religious books. Trivia: How accurate are Punxsutawney Phil’s Groundhog Day forecasts? 16% accurate, 39% accurate, 64% accurate, 82% accurate?

Happy Groundhog’s Day as the legend goes, if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow on Feb. 2, six more weeks of winter weather lay ahead; no shadow indicates an early spring. Punxsutawney Phil, a groundhog, has been forecasting the weather on Groundhog Day for more than 120 years, but just how good is he at his job? According to the National Climatic Data Center, Punxsutawney Phil’s weather predictions have been correct 39% of the time. The NCDC have described the forecasts as “on average, inaccurate” and stated that “the groundhog has shown no talent for predicting the arrival of spring.”
