Starting with a mention of the miners in Chile, Charles Osgood previewed the stories for 10 October 2010: Martha Teichner on a gift of lifetime; the man behind the girl with a dragon tattoo (Stieg Larsson), Eli Wallach by Tracey Smith, typos by Bill Geist,

Headlines: miners in Chiles days from freedom (Seth Doane), North Korea (with expert Marcus Nolan on third generation leadership gymnastics), AP on states attorneys general on mortgages, NY Yankees over Twins. Weather pleasant.

The first piece was by Seth Doane on the miners in Chile. There was an interview with Maria Segovia, a sister of one of the miners. Jeff Hart of Lane Christiansen, who was in charge of the plan B drill. 300 feet of the tunnel will be lined with casing. A real life drama which has turned attention to an unlikely placed: the Atacama desert. There are a thousand journalists at the site. Jeffrey Lieberman a psychologist from Columbia University: the miners will never be the same.

The almanac feature was directed to the world's worst movie director. 10 October 1924 is the birthdate of Ed Wood. Wood started with Glen or Glenda, based on Christine Jorgensen. In 1958: "plan 9 from outer space," with Bela Lugosi. Woods died in 1978. Landau won an Oscar for best supporting actor in the movie "Ed Wood."

The cover story "Gift of a Lifetime" by Martha Teichner appeared next. A life lost led to a life saved, 10 years later. Story about Alice Winn, who died at age 51. National Marrow Depository in Minneapolis now contains blood samples from potential marrow donors. JMML. Dana Farber Childrens Hospital. Adam Riker. Gary Zalkin.

Bamboo as art was discussed in the story "Big Bambú" built by Doug and Mike Starn (identical twins). Built in New York City in Central Park. "Chia pet gone wild."

The next story was about "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo," by Stieg Larsson. Millennium Trilogy includes "The Girl Who Played With Fire" and "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest." Stockholm is home to tours of Lisbeth Salender's world. There is a movie version, wherein the title character is played by Rooney Mara who happens to be the niece of of John Mara, co-owner of the NFL's New York Giants [who play in New Jersey's Meadowlands.]

Campaign 2010 by Jeff Greenfield. Incumbents are struggling. Only 34% deserve re-election. But 5 ex-governors are running. F. Scott Fitzgerald: There are no second acts in American life but we have Gubernatorial deja vu. A reminder of better times. People are disappointed with what's going on now. Jerry Brown: a Rubik's cube of complexity. The old fire horse hearing the bell? Patton saying he loved war. Gray Davis was interviewed.

Next was Eli Wallach, beginning with the good, the bad and the ugly and quickly turning to Wall Street-2. "It's the end of the world Bill." The Rose Tattoo. Won the role of Maggio in From Here to Eternity. Baby Doll. The Magnificent Seven. The Misfits.

Opinion piece. "Let's talk eggs" and talk about egg freezing. "ovary achiever". "egg-static."

Fast draw on Albert Nobel, who had over 350 patents, including on dynamite. Obituary for his deceased brother was mistakenly written for Albert and mentioned: Merchant of Death. This led to a change in his will and the creation of the prize. Nobel's final "invention" was the Nobel prize.
