Did you know that you can now find game-by-game stats of everyone, including Austin Rogers, who has won 10 or more games on Jeopardy!, here on the site?

In Charles Dickens’ Oliver Twist, Mr. Bumble gave their orphan foundlings surnames in alphabetical order. Mr. Bumble proudly exclaimed:

The last was a S,–Swubble, I named him. This was a T,–Twist, I named him. The next one comes will be Unwin, and the next Vilkins. I have got names ready made to the end of the alphabet, and all the way through it again, when we come to Z.’

  1. Shouldn’t “wrap” in “wrap facilitator” be capitalized?

    • I guess? I’d never heard of it before. Could you explain what it is?

      • Marcus Gresham | November 26, 2017 at 10:42 pm |

        It’s similar to a case manager. I work with children who are either in a residential facility and preparing for discharge to return home, or with ones who are home and at risk of being sent to a facility.

  2. I think WRAP has something to do with substance abuse and mental health issues and a facilitator is trained to help others by sharing his/her personal experiences.

    • Thank you! (I’m unfamiliar with the program, being Canadian and all.)

    • Marcus Gresham | November 26, 2017 at 10:45 pm |

      You’re on the right track. I work for a community mental health center and my clients are all children, although I tend to work more frequently with parents than the children, to try and make sure they have all the assistance around them they need to be successful in their communities. The personal experience portion you mention isn’t quite a part of it.

  3. Wellness Recovery Action Plan. It is a health care and mental wellness program.

    • It’s a program for children in the state of Indiana who do not qualify for other helpful programs that may benefit their mental health. The facilitator connects them to services that would benefit them and makes sure that the bill is taken care of.

        You’ve heard of it….I didn’t happen to walk past you at the state systems of care conference or anything, did I? lol

  4. Marcus Gresham are wearing a Hawaii shirt on the show.
